Grand Rounds at Mexico Medical Student

Mexico Medical Student has put together a great edition of Grand Rounds this week. I’ll let Enrico explain his theme, which is very cool.

Welcome to Grand Rounds! I am privileged to be your host for this week’s edition of the best posts of the medical blogosphere. As in the previous two times I’ve hosted, I will integrate music into this edition, but unlike before, I will focus on one piece of music: Tod und Verklärung (Death and Transfiguration) by the German composer Richard Strauss.

Death and Transfiguration is a “tone poem,” literally, a musical literary depiction. In this case, it is of a dying artist on his deathbed in his last moments, and what is experienced up to, including and after death.

And he takes it from there, weaving in the best the medical blogosphere has to offer. Go check it out.
