I have tweeted actively at more than 30 conferences during the past 5 years.

Here are 5 tips on how to power-tweet through your next conference:
First, why should you tweet at conferences?

📢 Share new knowledge with those unable to attend

Although I do not fully agree, many conferences have moved back to in-person-only formats.

Tweeting allows others to learn, share, and engage in some fashion even when remote.
✍️ Take your own notes

You would be surprised how much more attention you pay to talks when you “have to” accurately capture the key points.

This way, you respect the speaker AND learn more!

Today marks the start of #WHA75!

This week, @WHO, Ministries of Health, civil society, & more will discuss #GlobalHealth priorities.

Missing on agenda? #GlobalSurgery & 🫀 care.

Hence, I'll be sharing key points, papers, & developments in #GlobalCardiacSurgery in 75 tweets 👇 Image
(1/75) To start, what *is* #GlobalCardiacSurgery?

GCS extends far beyond OR, from community-based disease detection & efficient referral networks to timely care, long-term follow-up, robust supply chains & adequate financial risk protection. #WHA75

(2/75) Why does #GlobalCardiacSurgery matter?

⚠️ Every year, 18 million people die from #CVD

🫀 500 million live with CVD; 100s of millions more to come.

🏥 Up to 1/3 will require #CTSurgery or interventional care in lifetime

CPB 🧵pt4. Dessert course. Circ arrest.

Yes we know it’s a lifestyle.

But what IS it actually? Why do we do that to a person - stop blood flow to their whole body. Isn’t blood flow necessary? Or at least preferable?

#surged #meded #CTSurgery #CardioTwitter
To understand why we “circ arrest” someone- meaning arrest or stop the circulation to the whole body- we have to return to the basics of vascular surgery (bc cardiac surgery is kind of the ultimate #vascularsurgery 🙃)

it’s all about proximal and distal control
Let’s say you want to fix a psuedoanuerysm on the common femoral artery.

Well you need to get proximal and distal control with vascular clamps so that you can work on the area of interest.

Now while you’re working, the leg is a little sad 😔 but it’s got some collateral flow

Ok let’s keep going with #cardiopulmonarybypass. Several requests for circulatory arrest, but first let’s understand how to go on and off bypass and a few flavors of cannulation and cardioplegia

🧵primer pt 2: going on and off bypass

#CardioTwitter #surged #meded #CTsurgery
Again, don’t get overwhelmed by the surgeon shoving a large number of tubes into the heart. Think logically what each one does and why it is needed.

If you know your stuff and you can’t come up with an answer, then maybe you’ve identified an inefficiency in their process. 🙃🙃
But maybe wait until you’re a PGY-10 to tell them 🙃

For student coming onto #cardiacsurgery: here’s a primer on cardiopulmonary bypass I usually give between rounds and incision

You won’t pass perfusion boards from this 🧵but hopefully you’ll feel more oriented at the table.

#cardiotwitter #surged #meded #CTSurgery
When I was a sub-I on cardiac surgery I was totally lost on what all the different tubes did and would see a diagram like this and think I should stick to belly surgery:
But it’s not actually that complicated. Basic idea:
Bypass helps us overcome some unique challenges of operating on the heart:
🫀It’s full of blood
🫀It moves
🫀If it’s not moving, then something else needs to perfuse the body while we interrupt it from doing that

Hey @AubriWasHerName, I’m going to respond publicly because I think you ask a great question that others may want answered as well: can you have a family in #Surgery, particularly #CTSurgery? Short answer: yes! But I’ll say more.

So first, a bit of my background: I’m an incoming gen surg resident and will pursue a CT fellowship. I have 2 kids, a 6yo stepson and a 2mo old. I was raised by a female CT surgeon who had 4 kids in gen surg residency (shoutout @jschwabe). My wife is a hospitalist attending.

Surgery has gotten much friendlier to work/life balance, but training will be very hard no matter what. Your husband will be working 80+ hrs/week for 5-8 years. That’s challenging. But doable! Having a support system is CRUCIAL.
