A young woman has three heart attacks in one week; a man is misdiagnosed and now needs a bypass; a 54-year-old man with heart failure refuses treatment. We spend a trillion dollars a year on high-tech tests, and yet almost 20% of patients are misdiagnosed. Making Rounds reintroduces the oldest diagnostic method – listening to the patient –by following leading cardiologists Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, Director of Mount Sinai Heart and Herschel Sklaroff, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, Cardiology at Mount Sinai Heart over a one-month period as they care for critically-ill heart patients in the Cardiac Care Unit at The Mount Sinai Hospital. We accompany Fuster and Sklaroff as they teach future doctors the traditional art and science of a thorough bedside physical exam. “A great many diseases may be diagnosed,” they tell us, “just by looking at a patient’s hand.” “Dr. Fuster and I make rounds the old fashioned way. ” says Dr. Sklaroff in the film. “The first thing that we do is go to the patient and hold his hand. With that touch you establish rapport instantly. We were trained to go to the bedside and talk to the patients, and take the perfect history, do the perfect physical, from which one ought to be able to make a diagnosis or come close to a diagnosis, maybe 90% of the time. ”Making Rounds presents Fuster’s and Sklaroff’s decades of experience in action as they correct misdiagnoses and save lives, demonstrating –in real-world situations –that simply observing and listening to patients remain medicine’s most indispensable tools.
