Retinal Drawing: A Lost Art of Medicine

LuAnn Dvorak
2011 The Permanente Journal  
The Hot Organ In the midst of [the lungs] is seated a hot organ, the heart, which is the origin of life and respiration.  ...  It imparts to the lungs the desire of drawing in cold air, for it raises a heat in them; but it is the heart which attracts. If, therefore, the heart suffer primarily, death is not far off.  ...  In other fields, these efforts go by the names of rehearsal, scrimmage, simulation training, and practice. The question for physicians is: What does deliberate practice look like for us?  ...
