2/ police station, complaints filed in criminal courts, summons by court to private doctors to appear as a witness with medical record of a patient, cases in civil court for damages, steps a doctor can take if he perceives threats from a patient, etc.

3/ First basic principles : An error in diagnosis (or Judgement) is not by itself a negligence. If a patient dies during an operation or immediately after surgery, is by itself not a medical negligence.

Exactly 7 years ago, I spent #StrokeAwarenessDay undergoing emergency #thrombectomy for #basilar artery occlusion. #BAO

Today, I'm still in awe and celebrating how #modern #medicine saved me from locked-in syndrome and enabled me to live a normal life, against all odds.

1/ 🧵
2/ So far, I have avoided sharing this information as part of my professional life, fearing it would somehow disqualify me as a credible clinician-scientist. Finally, I realize that the experience only strengthened my resolve to give future patients the second chance I was given.
3/ What happened in brief:

I was a healthy, 25yo medical student, all excited to have finished the first 10K run of my life not even 5 hours before my family reacted #FAST and called 911.

Duration of Antibiotic Therapy
Deciding on the duration of antimicrobial therapy for an infection is neither straightforward nor simple. 👇
#MedTwitter #MedEd #USMLE #FOAMed #hospitalist #mbbs #medicine #doctor
#medschool #MedStudentTwitter #medstudent #TwitterRx

Most ID guidelines are based- either expert opinions or evidence-based medicine. Historically, duration of ABX Rx were based on arbitrary extension of days(magic numbers like 7, 10 & 14 days) rather than on reliable evidence with the main aim to ⬇️ failures & avoid underRx.

There is growing evidence to support for shorter courses. It is important for prescribers to be up to date with best practices. Duration of therapy plays a pivotal role in antimicrobial stewardship programme within the global effort to optimize antibiotic use &⬇️resistance.

Edema of the deep dermis & subcutaneous tissues.

Etiology, types and treatments👇👇👇👇⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️👇👇👇👇


#MedTwitter #MedEd #USMLE #FOAMed #hospitalist #mbbs #medicine #doctor
Mast cell–derived mediators tend to affect layers superficial to subcutaneous tissue, including the dermal-epidermal junction. These mediators cause urticaria & pruritus.

In bradykinin-mediated angioedema, the dermis is usually spared, so urticaria & pruritus are absent.

#AIMART storytime 🧵
This just in: Boom💥
So, I’m getting ready for work today, tying up the ol’ scrubs and peek at my phone - I see a message, sent last night from the ER doc stating that one of my patients, a young Black man admitted for Sickle cell pain crisis...

..., wanted to leave and the doc was okay with discharging because the patient’s pain seemed to have resolved. Ok, I get to the 🏥and my team informs me the patient is still in-house (in the ED – No beds on the floors.

The ED is overflowing, so we have patients admitted and waiting in the ED for a bed for daaaays on end. Coupled with the ED being short-staffed - yeah…not good) and didn’t leave, after my wonderful senior resident convinced him to stay and receive more analgesia (pain meds)

💣 This one is going to be a mine-field... Here's why I decided to pursue a medical career in the US 🇺🇸 rather than the UK 🇬🇧. NOTE: this is not me saying what OTHER people should do, simply giving my own thinking. You are free to disagree, there's no 'right answer'. 🧵 1/
🤩 New Experience: I'd spent the majority of my life in the UK, dad was a doctor, I went to a 'good school', got into a 'good uni', and became a doctor. Felt like if I stayed in UK, best case scenario, my life would just be on repeat, now through dad's eyes. Felt too safe. 2/
💵 Money: bet you didn't think I'd go there this quickly, right? (That's the sound of 100 keyboard warriors pressing delete on their "OBVS JUST FOR THE MONEY!!!!" tweets.) Yep, I didn't think being a doctor in the UK was a well-compensated job for how stressful and long... 3/

My Favourite Top 15 Tamil films of 2021 👇🏻. #Karthicdm #Karthicdm_Reviews #Tamilcinema #Kollywood
15. #KamalifromNadukaveri
Sincere attempt of feel good film with a good message. Casting and performance were good. But cliched scenes and weak screenplay in second half were let downs. more like a educational movie. High school students and their parents can watch.
14. #Teddy New attempt for tamil cinema. Decent songs and good acting. lack of creativity and weak script were major cons. Decent fantasy comedy entertainer. one time watchable.

“Given #Omicron's lower severity, the negative cost of lockdowns and school closures—including financial turmoil, isolation, and lost learning time—far outweigh the benefits.” write @AliHMokdad and @kleachkemon in @ThinkGlobalHlth👇…
Estimates suggest that #Omicron is just 3% as deadly as #Delta and 1/10 as likely to cause hospitalization while simultaneously spreading at “stunning” speeds and will likely infect as many people in the next 2 months as SARS-CoV-2 has infected people in the past 2 years
📍The good news is that in most countries, the death toll will be nowhere near as extreme as it was last winter.

Sadly, #MedicareForAll will not help #healthcare costs until the underlying problem with MEDICARE and the ENTIRE HEALTH SYSTEM is FIXED, a LONG 🧵 1 of 24 #Medtwitter @somedocs @AmerMedicalAssn @WCMSSM @MichStateMedSoc References:
2/ b/c @SenateFloor @HouseFloor & @CMSGov are yet again not fixing the true problem & instead are again targeting #Physicians by decreasing payments by another 9.75% on top of the fact that reimbursements to providers has already been decreased by 22% over the past 2 decades
3/ On average only 40% of the what your #insurance , including #Medicare , pays your doctor actually goes to the doctor as #income . The overhead costs to be a doctor takes at least 60% of the payment a doctor gets from Medicare or Insurance equivalent.

"दुभंगलेल्या ओठांना, मोफत सुंदर हास्य देणारे - 'देवरुपी डॉक्टर सुबोध कुमार सिंग'!"

एक-दोन दिवसांपूर्वी @thakkar_sameet समितभाऊ यांनी एक न्यूज आर्टिकल शेयर केले होते आणि ते वाचल्यावर वाटले की, हे आणखी लोकांपर्यंत पोहोचले पाहिजे म्हणून हा लेख.

एखाद्याने जर आपलं लहानपण गरीबीत घालविले असेल आणि संघर्षातून तो डॉक्टर बनला असेल तर तो नक्कीच जनमाणसाचे दुःख समजू शकतो, हे त्रिकालबाधित सत्य आहे.

असेच एक डॉक्टर आहेत 'सुबोध कुमारसिंग' जे प्लास्टिक सर्जन आहेत. डॉक्टर बनण्यासाठी त्यांनी त्यांच्या लहानपणी खूप संघर्ष केला आहे.
त्यामुळेच आता ते cleft lip/palate या व्यंगासह जन्मलेल्या बालकांची मोफत शस्त्रक्रिया करतात. आजपर्यंत त्यांनी 37000 शस्त्रक्रिया केलेल्या आहेत.

शालेय जीवनात ते एक मेरिटमध्ये येणारे विद्यार्थी होते आणि वाराणसी येथे 1979 शाळा/कॉलेज शिकताना ते चष्मा आणि हात धुवायचा साबण विकून आपल्या

Beyond thrilled to have been awarded a *renewal* for my @NIH_LRP award!!!!!! Story time (on #privilege and #perseverance)

As a first-generation #Kenyan American, raised in #Kenya and very much an #African child (if you know you know), a #doctor is very much what I was going to be from the time I was born. 😋 (thankfully, also a marrying of my love of science and taking care of people!) 2/

The only feelings to center on are those of black community
Wrong use of this quote during the week of #DerekChauvinTrial

Some people “feel” things if a white male faces accountability
Amy Cooper’s feelings: call cops
Racism & racism lite has always focused on “feelings” #BLM
When @ayshakhoury or @uche_blackstock were authentic in their feelings: ended careers

Black female physician #DrSusanMoore having “knowledge” or a “voice”
while DYING
made others
*feel* “intimidated.”

This is part of a known pattern for WOC
#BLM #BlackintheIvory
This is a repeating pattern of “feelings” used against tellers of uncomfortable truths that #MLK described in the letter from the Birmingham jail.

Seeking order > justice or overpolicing are all to protect only certain “feelings” of “security” while those like #adamtoledo die.

#MedTwitter influencers show hypocrisy (advice vs actions on masks). Agree:

“unpleasant comments are ‘the nature of social media’ and holding public figures accountable is critical when they are setting an example for their ‘millions of followers.’”…
#tweetiatrician have even gotten death threats for pro-#vaccine #SciComm - most #MedTwitter influencers did nothing to protect vs these personal safety threats to #clinician & #doctor colleagues

@ZDoggMD & @DrToddWo did step up to help @NicoleB_MD…
Compare above to Dr. Mike:
when medical influencers are “caught”

adds to public perception:
“doctors cannot be trusted”

“Another fan posted on Reddit: ‘I know it's your life and you can do what you want, but you have chosen to be a public figure.’”…

When the #ACA was implemented: there was no mandate established to ensure that #emr #ehr electronic medical records could communicate and physicians could obtain medical records from #doctors caring for the same patients at other offices or hospitals. 1/
What ensued was that the government forces practices to an incur most of the cost of buying expensive electronic medical records and forced them to use them or incur more financial penalties. In retrospect those who did not use #emr and #ehr benefitted 2/
It became impossible to afford an #emr #ehr in a private practice
costs include:

The farce that is #facecoverings & #facemasks against #COVID19 , a thread.
First up, #WHO, in latest ‘interim guidance’ of 1 Dec, on ‘potential benefits & harms’ of #masks:…. (note 1st ‘potential benefit’ is ‘reduced spread of respiratory droplets’ - which is not actually the same as reducing transmission, is it?) Image
But you’re convinced the benefits outweigh the harms and go for masking. I mean, forcing people to keep a piece of fabric/paper and plastic on their faces, how hard can that be, eh? Well, here’s the WHO’s most recent interim guidance again. It’s not as simple as it looks, is it? Image
