This week's edition of Grand Rounds is hosted by Dr. Emer of the Parallel Universes Blog.
Grand Rounds is a weekly anthology of the best medical blogging on the web.
Intermittent Leftness of His Numb Hand is my contribution to this edition of Rounds. John Henry remains a apt metaphor for certain jobs in medicine. I, for one, am glad that not all medical transcriptionists have been replaced by a steam drill. Not only do they continue to save us from medical malaprops that no computer will ever spot, but they are also kind enough to share the funniest ones with the rest of us.
