Extract

Saturday rounds in an academic center are generally conducted with the house staff having one eye on the clock and the other on the attending physician, the unspoken thought being, “Can we hurry this along so we can get out of here?” However, this was not the prevailing attitude when John F. Murray, MD, was attending in the medical ICU at San Francisco General Hospital. Dr Murray used Saturday mornings to discuss some aspect of clinical respiratory physiology that was illustrated by a patient in the unit, making the physiologic principles relevant to critically ill patients. The value of these sessions was not lost even on the most sleep-deprived interns and residents, and they were widely regarded as extraordinary learning experiences.
