Thank you for the history lesson – I love that stuff now that I am old enough to appreciate that history does repeat itself.  I look in the mirror and see my Mother.

 

Anyhow, I understand what you are saying Bimal, but my understanding is that there is a need to gather more data to increase the probability.  There is always the physical examination, the EKG, and if the index of suspicion is high enough, then lab work should be evaluated as well.  I don’t think that we can limit our diagnostic acumen to pure probability.  It sure doesn’t work in women with heart disease – probably the most mis-diagnosed population in the US, aside from males with HFpEF.

 

Again, I repeat that if we are going to make a difference, we need to increase our participation of Nurses and other health care providers.  The more shareholders we can work with, the more threads we can gather to make the process clearer.

 

Best,
