La Frase de la Semana:

Esta semana la tomamos del escrito español Chufo Llorens.

Y la frase dice:

La distancia es al amor lo que el viento al fuego: apaga el pequeño, pero aviva el grande.

Regresamos con nuestro podcast y en el episodio de hoy hablamos de colecistitis aguda en pacientes de alto riesgo quirúrgico: Colecistectomia laparoscopica temprana o drenaje percutaneo?

Referencia: 

Charlotte S Loozen, Hjalmar C van Santvoort y colaboradores. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy versus percutaneous catheter drainage for acute cholecystitis in high risk patients (CHOCOLATE): multicentre randomised clinical trial. BMJ 2018; 363. doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.k3965 (Published 08 October 2018). 

 

Frase de la Semana:

La tomamos esta semana de Sir Francis Bacon (22 de enero de 1561 – 9 de abril de 1626), fue un célebre filósofo, político, abogado y escritor inglés siendo considerado el padre del Empirismo, teoría filosófica que enfatiza el papel de la experiencia, ligada a la percepción sensorial, en la formación del conocimiento. 

La frase dice:

“Quien no quiere pensar es un fanático, quien no puede pensar es un idiota,

quien no osa pensar es un cobarde”
