In this Update, we summarize 12 articles published during 2000 that are important to physicians who care for medical inpatients. We searched the databases of the published literature, scanned the tables of contents of major medical journals, and informally polled our colleagues to find articles that we believe will have the greatest impact on hospital medicine. The research is grouped into six categories: pulmonary and critical care, infectious diseases, end-of-life care, cardiology, gastroenterology, and health care quality. The Appendix lists other notable papers in these areas.
