Take me to the Bank: Resident call schedules in the ICU and Thyroid Nodules
This week: A Randomized Controlled Trial of Resident Call Schedules in the ICU and The Natural History of Benign Thyroid Nodules.
Nathan and Amol want you to understand the following:
1. There was no significant difference between three different call schedules in the ICU in terms of resident sleepiness or patient outcomes.
2. Benign thyroid nodules are indolent and have very low risk of progressing to cancer, suggesting that guidelines for nodule surveillance could be revised.
