Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show discussing all of the statistics and numbers regarding medical mistakes. Including medical mistakes, adverse drug envent, infections, botched procedures total over 15 million people are injured, infected or killed every year. Some statistics show that the medical industry is now the leading cause of death of Americans.

 

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning the approval of medical devices. Consumer Reports President Jim Guest sent an email blast to over 1 million Americans regarding the way the FDA approves medical devices. Several years ago the FDA started a fast track system to get drugs and devices on the market sooner. Under this program drug and device makers conduct their own clinical trials and report the results to the FDA. Devices considered to be low risk such as blood pressure cuffs aren't tested on humans. Because makers contend that 'similar' products were already on the market. High risk devices such as artificial hips were cleared under this program many never properly tested leading to often life threatening incidents.
