Grand Rounds, vol. 2, no. 22

Now that my technical problems have resolved, it’s time to do what I do every week and plug the latest edition of Grand Rounds. It’s a blog carnival that’s like Grand Rounds for medical blogging (hence the name), and it collects the best of the medical blogosphere from the last week. I’m a regular contributor and have even hosted in the past.

This week, Grand Rounds, vol. 2, no. 22 is hosted by Dr. Andy, and a fine collection of medblogging he’s gathered (including my first submission since moving to ScienceBlogs).

Next week the carnival is being hosted by a fellow surgeon at at the aptly named A Chance To Cut Is A Chance To Cure. Given that it’s being hosted by a fellow surgeon, I might have to come up with something surgical to submit for next week.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
