I just started watching House, partly as an experiment, and partly because I like medical fiction.

I am apparently more cold-heartedly goal-oriented than the show's writers. Maybe I'll decide that it is because they needed an artificial constraint, and not because they missed the (obvious, but rather distressing) conclusion.

I'm a little freaked out by this, though.

So at the relevant point in the episode, they have a cluster of very sick newborns, one of whom has died. They'd like to run lots of blood tests to determine [medical babble here], but they can't draw lots of blood, because the babies are very sick and can't spare a lot of blood.

However, the dead baby will not be using any of its blood anymore. It would be helpful to do any long-shot exploratory tests on the dead baby's blood, and only test the live babies for things that the dead baby had.
