Dr. Fred Voon
Emergency Physician and author asks:
Let’s see if you can tell medical myth from truth.
Click on the picture above the questions for the answer!
What’s more dangerous? Stepping on a rusty nail barefoot, or stepping on a clean nail through sneakers?
For nosebleeds should you hold pressure while tipping your head down or back?
What’s the average wait time to see a doctor at a Canadian Emergency Department?
Should you call the Emegency Department to ask what the wait time is or with health questions to see if you need to come in?
Will you get seen faster in the Emergency Department if you arrive by ambulance compared to driving in yourself?
If you had a case of the stomach flu, should you drink plain water, ginger ale, or half-strength apple juice?
If you had bad abdominal pain shooting through to the back, I would tell you to go to the Emergency immediately. What condition am I worried about that kills 9 of 10 people?
What common kitchen ingredient would I recommend using over cough syrups?
This is information the public needs to know and I hope to share on podcasts and in newspapers and magazines.
