Enough already with the natriuretic peptides


A common scenario - a demented woman sits in her chair all day. The careers visit, are 'not happy' about her swollen ankles, phone for a doctor's visit then bugger off. 2 hours later a doctor visits, patient has completely forgotten the careers even being there. Dr leaves a note for careers explaining the side effects of amlodipine. The whole thing is repeated when the careers are changed.
