Interesting. I still wonder if viability has a role in decision making, particularly in borderline patients. If I have someone who is already high risk, unlikely to derive viability, I'm less likely to offer CABG. However, outside of that group I think this is useful.

“We had to keep pushing” - the experience of non-white families in pursuing diagnoses of for their children - black children were diagnosed later, more likely to be misdiagnosed, less likely to get a early intervention

I really believe the way to eradicate health care biases is to make our workforce look like our patients. These stats make me sad.

Women with acute heart attacks are NOT more likely to have ‘atypical’ symptoms... strong evidence (again) to suggest that it is us as physicians who have the bias...

But that leaves me feeling a little underwhelmed. Perhaps because I feel like we should be on the same page? So what do other people do in the same situation?

Sometimes, I’ll be honest, I get upset by that sentiment, especially in the face of many stories and a lot of research. But level headed me has started saying ‘everyone has different experiences, so let’s look at the research’.

A bit of a thread/discussion and questions to the crowd: When I hear people, esp women, within medicine say that there is no gender (or other) bias in medicine that affects your career, how does that sit with you all?

I don’t wanna brag BUT last week I was in an all female cardiac surgery case. (First time I’ve ever been part of an all-woman surgical team)

I am surprised that this was published when the study doesn't account for many issues. What about paternal IQ, the difficulties with IQ measurement, the small decrease only in boys, the causative link is still missing etc. It's okay to explore but this isn't good enough science.

I love your optimism. And I'm just an angry tweeter these days so might have borrow some of yours❤️ 😂 People do have varied experiences - some better than others, would be great to learn what made them great and apply that elsewhere?
