One of the ER attendings that I round with sometimes used one of those pen-style electrocauteries to drain a bruise that was pooled under one of his toenails (ungual hematoma) from when he dropped something on his foot.

That's pretty cute, and informative. Does anyone know if there's valid evidence to support opening your windows to prevent flu? It sounds like wholistic pre-scientific vital energy stuff on first blush, but I don't know.

Re: Would you voluntarily take the H1N1 Vaccine?

I find the personal rancor that the H1N1 vaccination subject brings to the surface to be quite interesting. I think it has something to do with the fact that each side thinks the other is responsible for harming (and sometimes killing) small children. When I hear about an infant dying from whooping...

Tens of Thousands of people die in the US every year from the flu. Maybe this winter we'll lose more than normal. 5%? 10%?

No, I will not take the vaccine. I don't trust it. Every time I take a flue vaccine, I get sick. i doubt this time would be any different. This h1n1 vaccine seems very rushed and not at all well tested. So, I would rather trust good hygiene and my natural immune system. YMMV. As far as anybody requ...
