Dad bleed to death 5 years ago today.
I usually prefer to remember his life, but ever since I got the letter from @CVSHealth PBM Caremark saying I couldn't continue on the anticoagulant with the lowest risk of major bleeding, Dad's final moments have been heavy on my mind. 🧵
I got the call around 4am from my parent’s neighbor saying there was blood everywhere in Dad’s bedroom. Mom was hysterical. EMS were on the scene. 2/
Dad was stabilized at their small rural hospital before being transported an hour to a large academic hospital. He had a major bleed in his lungs. Despite best efforts over the next 48 hours, he had one final traumatic bleed out which could not be stopped.3/

The first dose of the loop diuretic should be 40 mg furosemide (=1 mg bumetanide) in diuretic naïve and twice the home dose in patients on loop diuretic (3/9).

1/10. Wat is the most important driver of worsening renal function in #HeartFailure ?

Look at #Tweetorial on central hemodynamic derangements in heart failure

#Cardiotwitter #Cardiology #FOAMed #Cardiorenal #MedEd #MedTwitter #Nephrology #ADVOR
2/10. The kidney is a remarkable vascular organ. Renal blood flow = 1000 ml/min, renal plasma flow = 600 ml/min.
3/10. Elevated central venous pressure affects renal function significantly more than reduced cardiac output in heart failure.…

Tweet: renal sodium avidity in #HeartFailure

Do you ever wonder what is happening in the kidney in Heart Failure patients? Here’s a short #Tweetorial on renal physiology in HF (1/6).
#Cardiotwitter #Cardiology #FOAMed #Cardiorenal #MedEd #MedTwitter #Nephrology #ADVOR
Glomerulus: renal blood flow ↓ in HF, but the kidney tries to maintain GFR by afferent arteriolar vasodilation and efferent arteriolar vasoconstriction. This leads to single-nephron hyperfiltration initially preserving total GFR, but further damaging the glomerulus. (2/6)
Proximal tubules: hyperfiltration leads to ↑ water and solutes filtered, but ↓ remaining in the peritubular capillaries. Due to ↑ peritubular capillary oncotic pressure + ↑ renal lymph flow -> ↑ water and Na+ reabsorption in the proximal tubules (3/6)

Ecografía pulmonar 🫁. Guía fácil y práctica de como utilizarla. ABRO HILO
#POCUS #CardioEd #echofirst #ENARM #medicaleducation #ultrasound #MedEd #Cardiology Image
Es curioso porque clásicamente se decía que la ecografía pulmonar no era posible. Harrison afirmaba que " los ultrasonidos (US) se disipan rápidamente en el aire por lo que carecen de utilidad en la evaluación del parénquima pulmonar" ¿Qué ha cambiado? Image
Daniel Lichtenstein, un intensivista francés, redescubrió la ecografía pulmonar. Es cierto que los US no se transmiten bien por el aire, pero Lichtensein descubrió que pequeñas alteraciones en la relación aire-agua a nivel pulmonar formaban artefactos ecográficos característicos. Image

💠 Remember to Obtain a Rightsided ECG in a Patient with an Inferior MI

➡️ Inferior MI typically causes ST Elevation in leads II,III,aVF and ST Depression or T-wave inversion (TWI) in lead I,aVL.

-- Read More:…

#medtwitter #meded #foamed

➡️ STD or a new TWI in lead aVL is often the first ECG abnormality seen in Inferior MI.

➡️ When an inferior MI is diagnosed, a right-sided ECG should be obtained to exclude concomitant right ventricular MI (RVMI). RVMIs can complicate 30% to 50% of acute IMIs.


➡️ A right-sided ECG is performed by taking leads V3-V6 and placing them on the right side of the chest. These leads are labeled V3R-V6R.

➡️ STE of 0.5 mm or greater in one or more of leads V4R-V6R has a sensitivity of 90% and specificity of 91% for RVMI.

💠 Ventricular Assist Devices (VAD) - Key Points

➡️ The left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is the most common VAD in clinical practice

--

#meded #foamed #medtwitter #CardioTwitter #Cardiology

➡️ Indications for placement of a VAD:

👉as a bridge to recovery when cardiac function is temporarily diminished (i.e., myocarditis)
👉as a bridge to cardiac transplantation
👉as destination therapy for patients who are not candidates for cardiac transplantation

➡️ ED Evaluation of a VAD Patient

👉Begin with assessment of the patient’s airway, breathing, and circulation
👉Pulse - pulse is often absent or markedly diminished (current VA devices deliver a continuous flow of blood)

Following yesterday's #echofirst images of SAM, it’s time for another #tweetorial!

By senior fellow @NoahHaroian

#ACCFIT #Meded #FOAMed #cardiology #cardiotwitter

In this tweetorial, you will learn:
🟢The “ingredients” for SAM
🟢Who is at-risk for SAM
🟢How to treat SAM
Why are humans a set up for SAM?

Simple - because we have a cardiac loop.
Wait, what is the “cardiac loop”?

Answer: blood’s “U-turn” through the left ventricle. Image

The JVP exam has been with us since 1930 when Sir Thomas Lewis first proposed this exceptionally clever technique. A #pocus thread. Image
He knew that in heart failure there in “congestion of the veins” and when they become engorged can be detected on the neck.
Here is a phenomenal example in a very thin patient with prominent veins.
