Episode 321: A couple of new studies that will confirm or change your practice

In episode 321, James and Mike discuss two interesting studies. One is on the duration of antibiotics for community-acquired pneumonia and the other about the impact of total knee replacement on the overall quality of life. Interestingly, the results of these studies were different although that may have been the fact that one was on pneumonia and the other on TKR.
