Sophistry and Subarachnoid Haemorrhage

Are we dealing with myth or medicine, dogma or doggy doo, science or sophistry?


What causes T wave inversion on the ECG in the setting of some subarachnoid haemorrhages?

Why do we not then see a similar pattern in other circumstances causing sympathetic stress, or other similar cerebral pathologies?

What are your thoughts?

We open this to our faithful readers…
