This Update summarizes 12 articles published in 2001 that are important to primary inpatient physicians. To select these papers, we scanned 11 major medical journals and ACP Journal Club and informally polled experts in our geographic regions to find articles that we believe are methodologically sound and will have the greatest impact on hospital medicine. The research is grouped into seven categories: quality improvement, invasive procedures, pulmonary diseases, infectious diseases, cardiology, endocrinology, and critical care.
