About

I am an emergency physician with an interest in physical diagnosis. These postings represent notes I have written to enhance bedside teaching in my own practice. I hope others find them useful. – James A. Nelson MD

PS – I changed the name from emphysicaldiagnosis.com in 2015 because my readers were from all fields of medicine, not just emergency medicine. “Let’s go to the bedside” is what I say to residents, students, nurses, and physician assistants who are asking me a question about a given patient. I like the patient to benefit from our discussion, and I think our care gets better the more we go “to the bedside.”
