CALC Corner: HEART Score vs. EDACS

WhiteCoat

I’m a middle-aged ED physician who likes computers, martial arts, and taking pictures of sunsets. I have an amazing wife who willingly puts up with all of my idiosyncrasies and four great kids who don’t have any choice. My family is my rock. Since I’m an emergency physician, my bias is toward topics that affect emergency medical practice, but anything is free game for my posts. I like commenting on recent medical news, computers, life lessons, and will even throw in a few family stories once in a while. Despite all my whining, I couldn’t see myself doing anything else but practicing medicine.
