Say It Ain't So

... the death of the stethoscope? Somehow placing recordings of heart and breath sounds from an MP3 player/recorder in the medical record seems a bit extreme, but hey, such a device could probably do it. The real question is, would anyone stop and listen? With ever-growing pressure to improve "productivity," I doubt it.

But the best part? I'd stop looking like a doctor and look like this guy.

I'm sure that look would engender total confidence in my clinical skills by my patients.

Then again, maybe not.
