US Healthcare

March 11, 2010 at 10:26 (Health)

Some good stuff here. Not to say we are perfect, but we are not the travesty that you here about from the left.

U.S. does 2x as many transplants as OECD average

U.S. has best cancer survival rates in OECD

Death panels in Britain are putting people to death who could have recovered

Death panels: now in kids’ sizes too! Infants being left to die.

U.S. has more MRIS “it was found that Canada had 4.6 MRI scanners per million population while the U.S. had 19.5 per million”

U.S. has about twice as many MRIs as OECD average

The U.S. gets new drugs 1 year sooner “On average, the FDA approval came 1 year ahead of clearance by the European Medicines Agency (EMEA).”

“Prostate cancer mortality is 604 percent higher in the United Kingdom and 457 percent higher in Norway.”

“The top five U.S. hospitals conduct more clinical trials than all the hospitals in any other developed country”

U.S. performs more operations than any country in the world.

Lower U.S. life expectancy does not argue U.S. has worse health care due to lifestyle factors and differences in how infant mortality is reported
