Organon §99

In acute cases, the physician needs to ask fewer questions. On the whole, the inquiry into acute or otherwise recently arisen diseases is easier for the physician because all befallments and deviations from health but recently lost remain still fresh in memory, still new and conspicuous for the patient and his relations. Here also, of course, the physician must know [be aware of] everything; however he needs to investigate far less since, in large part, everything is told to him spontaneously.
