… because I will never trust malicious teenagers.
a nice section of EKGs, but I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever use it for anything remotely related to patient care. I don’t care if it ends up having the top 10 results for my query on Google. I don’t trust wikis.
I know everyone says that if you screw with a Wikipedia page, within the next hour, it will be edited back to the correct information, so that at any time, 99.9% of pages are accurate. However, I will never use a source that is immediately edittable by anyone at any time. I screwed with Ask Dr. Wiki’s Aortic Stenosis page, and it still lists one of my causes: Tricuspid Aortic Valve (it should be Bicuspid Aortic Valve). I don’t care if 99.9% of the time Dr. Wiki is correct. If the time that I’m using it is when it’s inaccurate, that’s a big problem.
It’s one thing to provide basic health information geared toward patients that can provide free, almost-always-accurate education to patients, but it’s another to try to provide it to physicians.
