We should hold doctors to the same expectations of mechanics but I guess thats why they call it practice .

Think I will change the name of my company to Mobile Marine Practice , If I mess up or cant fix it they still pay , its a win win for me
I think the human body is a little more complicated than an engine... Just a little.

Did you spend eight years in mechanic school? Did you get a title at the end? I'm all good with holding the medical profession to a bit more responsible standard. I think the fact that there is "malpractice" insurance would indicate that some judges & juries have too.

Right but even a mechanic knows there are some things that can't be fixed without a complete overhaul, unfortunately you can't overhaul a person. And some times it's the person's fault, like when they don't put oil in the engine.

And let's face it, most of us use extremely sub par fuel. Plus, it's not exactly like you got to pick the make and model when you were born.

Some are born as an AMC gremlin, and use nothing but the crappiest fuel on the planet, like Redbull and donuts (guilty recently, but not lately)

Some are born a (insert your favorite make/model here) and don't have to get anything done until they get the equivalent of 70 years worth of wear and tear. Get over it.

Still, as Cinder said, some cars can't be fixed without a complete overhaul, AND even a lifetime mechanic doesn't fix EVERYTHING right the first time, 100% of the time.

Thus the reason for taking care of your particular make and model (body and car) as per expert recommendation. Just like a smoker can't expect anyone to honor a lifetime warranty, I wouldn't expect Chrysler to honor my lifetime warranty if I started pumping diesel into my car, refuse to change the oil or brakes, and start adding aftermarket performance parts.

It's economics and proven. Regular wellness visits to mechanics and doctors save money on major malfunctions later, barring unforseen circumstances.

Yeah, what he said.

Don't be so judgmental. There may be a lot going on with her. Does she have emphysema? Maybe her alveoli aren't functioning properly. Not every medical ailment can be cured with a pill in 12 hours or less. That is a pretty low O2 level. I am sure she has an oxygen mask or cannula on. Sometimes it takes a while to pinpoint exactly what is going on with a person's medical situation. Her low O2 could also be from heart problems rather than lung problems. Give the medical professionals a chance to do some tests and find out what's wrong............and hope that it's something that can be remedied
.

She has copd but like my mom she is pretty fit and eats and drinks pretty good .
I dont trust the majority of the doc , not getting into that , thats a whole new thread there .

As much chemicals , fumes , exhaust , being rough on my body , smoking ect ect , I will prob live to 80-90 , maybe my body is too toxic for most illnesses to live in my body , cancer prob pops up , looks around , and goes **** this place ! LOL

Side note : Little Nicky is freaking funny , cant believe I forgot all about that movie

OK, but shouldn't a doctor be able to warrant his work against failure due to a defect in his workmanship, like a mechanic? If i had a headgasket replaced at a shop (did a couple years ago) and I the driver used only water with no antifreeze in the radiator, the shop would not be responsible for failure. However, even with all proper and reasonable precautions taken by the patients, doctors take very little responsibility for the quality/longevity of their work. My Dad had some intestinal difficulties in latter 2010; he was prescribed some heavy antibiotics and treated for a hernia or something; due to the heavy antibiotics, he ended up short on the "good bacteria" in his lower intestinal tract (AKA C-Diff) and had to pay several hundred dollars (after insurance coverage) for some pills to help him get over the C-Diff. At the least, the doctors should have comped the meds to fix the C-Diff caused by their original prescription/action.

Had my mechanic refilled my nissan's coolant resevoir with brake fluid, and had the nissan subsequently succumbed to some malady related to the incompressibility and thermodynamic properties of brake fluid and been returned to the mechanic within a year or X miles, the mechanic would have been on the hook for the cost of repairs due to his mistake. Otherwise, i very well may have burned down his house with him in it, as i know where he lives.

Careful bro. I once won an auction on a replica telescope. The primitive kind you see in pirate movies. I didn't expect to win, I was just playing around trying to learn how the system works.

Paid 20 bucks for it. Neither wanted nor needed it. Then the pay pal account I set up got hacked and I got wiped out of about 4 grand. It was linked to my checking account. I got it all back, but it took about 2 months and a LOT of headaches.
