In a hospital telemetry unit (for cardiac patients), who staffs it (i.E., what kinds of doctors and nurses)? If you get transferred to telemetry from another floor, does your doctor go with you?
Varies by location: A telemetry unit most frequently would have patients taken care of by cardiologists, internists, or family medicine doctors.

My doctor charged $45 for a 5-min preventive health phone call. For 50 more I could have had a Fitbit and used healthtap. Why is the healthcare system so lopsided?
Lopsided-understated: Health care today is lopsided capitalism at it's worst. The financial meltdown of 2008 is going to look like a bad walk in the park compared to the devastation to both financial and human capital that our bipolar society is heading for. Unless there is entire new course (the current system is irreparable). I call it 'the changing of the gods'. Not sure when i'll get to write that book either. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Insurance or not, they should have checked it out if you went to an emergency room. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why do so few pcps diagnose the often permanenteffects of icu delirium after an icu stay? For three years, i described icu delirium symptoms to doctors but no one diagnosed it.
Overlooked Diagnosis: Delirium and its symptoms are easily misinterpreted. It doesn't help that the most likely person to develop delirium is someone with dementia. And if the dementia is early it may not have been diagnosed until delirium occurs. At least one study suggests one needs to diagnose and treat delirium to resolution within the first 2 weeks to have the best chance of restoring function. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
