EM Blog – EM-Blog – Our Mythbuster Confronts Dr. Fish by Joseph Leibman, MD

We left the Mythbuster confronted by the evil Dr. Fish the urologist in the Saint -We Never Change Anything in Years hospital. The Mythbuster doesn't lose a step in dealing with a threatening urologist armed with a 100 french cathether.

“Urologist, Huh? Still think you get anything by hydrating renal colic patients? Well look at the Journal of Endourology 20(10) 713 . Flooding patients does nothing for pain perception or lessening of narcotic needs. Sure if the patient is vomiting or dehydrated, but this practice does nothing for stone passage”

Dr. Fish flinched.
