Making Rounds PT0M


We spend a trillion dollars a year on high-tech tests, and yet almost 20% of patients are misdiagnosed. Making Rounds reintroduces the oldest diagnostic method -- listening to the patient -- by following leading cardiologists Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, Director of Mount Sinai Heart and Herschel Sklaroff, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, Cardiology at Mount Sinai Heart over a one-month period as they care for critically-ill heart patients in the Cardiac Care Unit at The Mount Sinai Hospital. We accompany Fuster and Sklaroff as they teach future doctors the traditional art and science of a thorough bedside physical exam. 'A great many diseases may be diagnosed,' they tell us, 'just by looking at a patient's hand.' MAKING ROUNDS presents Fuster's and Sklaroff's decades of experience in action as they correct misdiagnoses and save lives, demonstrating -- in real-world situations -- that simply observing and listening to patients remain medicine's most indispensable tools.
