For Your Listening Pleasure!

Hey folks!  Remember how I said regular posting would resume after Thanksgiving?  That still stands, because this isn't a regular post.  Instead, I want to bring a resource to your attention.

Last week, I gave you a scenario involving a child with a nasty sounding cough, in a very remote location.  Your task was to figure out what was going on with the patient, then come up with a treatment plan.  If you haven't had a chance to watch the video and consider my scenario, you …

Earlier this week (on Thursday instead of Wednesday, but who's counting...) I posted …
