The review from the guy with vertigo needs to LIGHTEN UP!!!
helpful information, but please - podcasters - be mindful of tone
I realize this is a podcast meant for physicians, but I found it as someone suffering from vertigo for almost a month and looking for insight into what might be going on with me. I get it that people in life-and-death professions get blase sometimes and use a sort of gallows humor. That doesn't mean they don't care. But I think in a podcast, these guys might want to steer clear of flippant remarks about how "annoying" it is to encounter another "granny" with vertigo, with cut-aways again and again to the SNL "On a Boat" song. There were also references to what doctors should do to make their charts look good and to avoid immediate death to cover their behinds, as opposed to what might heal a patient or advance a diagnosis. The podcasters never expressed any empathy for the people they're caring for.
On the upside: In an episode on vertigo, I found a basis for questions to ask at my next doctor's appointment. For example, to that point, no doctor had checked my eye movements or "walked me" or asked questions to be sure that what I was describing as vertigo aligned with what he/ she considered vertigo. So I was able to plan to ask my doctor specifically whether those would be good things to talk about. (Not to drive my doctor crazy and be annoying, just to try to get better, b/c persistent vertigo is scary and hard to manage. Even if I am not a granny. But I imagine it is also legitimately and not just annoyingly frightening to grannies when the world tilts and spins.)
So upshot: I found the podcast to be a good resource, but the tone was unnecessarily off-putting.
So clear and easy to understand!
These podcast are really easy to apply and make my clinical practice better. Keep 'EM coming!
