Abstract / Description of output

It is assumed that medicine treats patients based primarily on their physical illnesses. Sociologic attributes such as religion, nationality, economic class, and gender might inform patient values, but should not negatively affect care. A number of studies, however, suggest that a patient’s sex may influence both the provision of care as well as outcomes. Critical care is not immune to such bias.
