  1. Cardiology and the quality of medical practice.

    Article - En anglais

    There is mounting concern over the continued escalation of medical costs.

    These have risen ahead of inflation over the past five decades.

    Medical costs will consume $600 billion dollars this year, over 11% of our gross national product.

    What may be an appropriate level of medical expenditure by a country is not, however, the issue here.

    What is of concern is whether we are receiving benefit commensurate with the high costs.
