Exams

Amiodarone – check LFTs, U&Es, TFTs, CXR before starting, then LFTs and TFTs every 6 months…

2nd month of life – DTaP/IPV/Hib, Men B, PCV, Rotavirus vaccination…

T2DM diagnosis- symptomatic and fasting glucose >7.0, random >11.1 or HbA1c 48 (6.5%)…

I don’t think any doctor has ever looked back at exams and thought that it actually made them a better doctor.  In fact it probably distracted them from doing the work that actually mattered.
