  • A stroke scale assessment would be great to study. I work in the ER and would like more on those situations, triaging and intaking a pt’s assessment. Describing a heart cath for a pt and fibrinolytic, tpa etc, etc.

  • Dra Molly encontre un error. En la parte que dice : esta mañana pase por su casa para (hablarle sobre) ir a la iglesia, y … La parte en paréntesis debe ser eliminada porque el diálogo no lo menciona.

    • Muchísimas gracias Graciela por la correción. Te lo agradezco mucho. Y también actualicé el tocador para que se quede en la pantalla conforme lees los show notes.
