With an increasing number of #specialist & #advancedpractice roles emerging for #paramedics, I thought it might be useful to assimilate some thoughts on preparing yourself & your CV for these positions.
For me, it’s about a rounded approach. Undertaking every course under the sun is fine but won’t provide you with the breadth of development required. Consider the four pillars of advanced practice. This document from HEE is a useful guide…

E hoje fazem exatamente 4 anos que publiquei esse vídeo pela primeira vez:
✨Manobra de valsalva modificada
Prós: barato, ñ causa desconforto como a adenosina, 40 a 50% de sucesso, vc se sente um mágico, mas é ciência 🤓
Manobra de Valsalva Modificada 😎
👩🏼‍🍳Vc vai precisar:

- Paciente com diagnóstico de TSV ESTÁVEL

- Seringa de dez ml
- paciente monitorizado
- maca reclinável ou equipe treinada
- saber contar até 15 🤣
- Equipe linda empenhada e vibrando 💖
🤔 Como fazer:

- Paciente sopra a seringa por 15seg (a idéia é criar uma pressão de aproximadamente 40mmHg, a força necessária para empurrar o embolo da seringa)
- ao final dos 15seg, deitar o paciente e elevar os membros inferiores aprox 45 graus por 15s

Getting the most out of your monitor: a tweetorial thread. Inspired by a twitter question from @mork66236485 and @GongGasGirl's chairing of the @aagbi's latest recommendations on monitoring. Lets start with a series of #OnePagers on aspects of the ECG #FOAMed #MedTwitter
One more on the ECG. So much of what we do is pattern recognition, so the next three look at waveforms for three of our most used monitoring devices; arterial/SaO2, capnography and CVP. #FOAMed
NMT and EEG are becoming more and more ubiquitous. Here's a pair of #Onepagers. And we're now going to move on to the information we can get from the monitoring that's part of our ventilators. #FOAMed

Radiology in ICU - 1 - A Tweetorial of some interesting (and some very rare!) cases relevant to ICU on @Radiopaedia #FOAMed #FOAMcc #FOAMrad
Can we just take a minute to appreciate the tremendous resource of @Radiopaedia - the best radiological resource of our age - #FOAMed. Shared and open learning. #FOAMcc. Follow the links to see the cases in beautiful detail with Radiological commentary.

Mucormycosis in ICU - A Tweetorial (Relevant due to #COVID19 in India) #FOAMed #FOAMcc
It's an invasive mould. Mucormycosis is a unifying term for infections belonging to 'Mucorales' - (so, Rhizopus, Mucor, Absidia etc). The fungi are filamentous. It's also all around us.…
Pulmonary infection is clinically indistinguishable from more common moulds such as invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) - PLUS, it's not a reportable disease, which makes it (obviously) underreported.

Guillan-Barré Syndrome (GBS) in ICU - a Tweetorial. #FOAMed #FOAMcc
First to note - is that there is no apparent association between GBS and #COVID19 #FOAMed #FOAMcc…
GBS is an ACUTE polyneuropathy (peripheral nervous system). Symmetrical in distribution. The onset is often over about 4 weeks and recovery often begins 2 weeks after progression has completed.

She denied using any medications before the onset of symptoms. She had no family history of kidney disease. Her labs showed ⏬K⏬Mg, normal TSH and negative ANA. USG of the abdomen was normal.

#Covid19 is probably the greatest debunker in #medicine we have seen...

Read this ... 👇🏾
🧵 *** The researchers found no evidence of a difference in response in biochemical markers of #inflammation between patients with #MIS-C/PIMS-TS who were treated with #IVIG, #steroids, or #biologics, compared with those who were not.
*** Despite a lack of evidence, 🇬🇧 and 🇺🇸 treatment guidelines for MIS-C/PIMS-TS have become very similar.

*** By the end of the study period, most patients had received immunomodulation.

Guillain-Barré-Strohl is a series of acute immune mediated demyelinating polyneuropathies, which are most commonly caused by some infectious episode. #Thread re how to NOT miss this dx! #MedTwitter #MedStudentTwitter #FOAMed @RosenelliEM @EMBoardBombs @MedTweetorials @Lmellick
Progressive, ascending symmetrical muscle weakness beginning in the legs, absence or depressed deep tendon reflexes, & paucity of sensory findings = hallmarks of GBS. Bladder/bowel dysfunction is RARE at presentation & suggests other diseases.
It is the most common cause of acute flaccid paralysis in children in the post-polio era.
C jejuni is the most commonly assoc. pathogen in the U.S., & might be associated w/worse prognosis. ~60% of cases will have a history of recent URI or GI infection.

Acute Kidney Failure

Acute Kidney Success?

✅maintain homeostasis.

This process is accurate to the T.
To achieve this accuracy, plasma is continuously filtered and reprocessed by the kidneys. ♻️

How much plasma is filtered per day, you ask? 😳

1/8 When might an FeUrea not be as useful as FeNa? Let's explore briefly!

#NephTwitter #MedEd #MedTwitter #Tweetorial #FOAMEd @MedTweetorials
2/8 First of all, a quick reminder that the utility of the FeNa and FeUrea in evaluation of AKI needs to be carefully considered before they are ordered (I'm a big fan of looking at UAs).…
3/8 You might see a table like the one below that can be used to (cautiously) interpret FENa and FEUrea.

💥Tweetorial on C3 Glomerulopathy (C3G)
⚡️what is C3 Glomerulopathy?
⚡️how to establish the diagnosis?
⚡️what is the role of Complements?
💥C3 Glomerulopathy (C3G) represents rare kidney diseases affecting both children & adults
⚡️It encompasses 2 distinct conditions:
1- DDD (dense deposition disease)
2- C3GN (C3 Glomerulonephritis)
💥C3G is...
⚡️driven by dysregulation of alternate complement pathway
⚡️mediated by genetic mutations or acquired defects of complement cascade
⚡️characterized by deposition of (sole or dominant) C3 in kidney tissue
⚡️presented with clinical features of glomerulonephritis

A little thread hypothesising why some of the beliefs about science can be polarising in the misinformation world (with some sneaky underpinnings of research paradigms).

#MedTwitter #MedEd #NurseTwitter #FOANed #FOAMed White text on black background reads: “Why do we have such
Some of the challenges around misinformation and the conflict surrounding responding to hot topics is all about world views. In research world we call this paradigms.
What this means is that there is a set of agreements about how a problem is be viewed - a set of assumptions and beliefs. The nuance here is that this worldview CHANGES the interpretation and/or weight of the problem or data.

1/ Prolonged APTT tweetorial

Quick tip; A prolonged APTT is more likely to indicate an underlying factor deficiency than a prolonged PT
BUT factor deficiency is not the most common cause for a prolonged APTT
2/ The most common causes include

- Heparin (either circulating in blood or in the line the sample was taken from)
- Lupus anticoagulant
- Liver disease (expect prolonged PT also)
- DIC (expect prolonged PT and low fibrinogen also)
- Factor deficiencies
3/ The coagulation factors associated with the APTT test are;

- IX
- XI

Time for another #MedTwitter #Tweetorial on murmurs.

You're examining a patient presenting with SOB. You get to the chest and you hear a blowing holosystolic murmur.

Now what?

Consider the most common causes of a holosystolic murmur
- Mitral regurgitation
- Tricuspid regurgitation
- Ventricular septal defect
Response to manoeuvres is a useful point of distinction
- Louder on inspiration -> TR
- Louder on handgrip -> MR
- Louder on valsalva - HCM

1/ Thought of doing a quick #tweetorial on image acquisition for #POCUS friends starting to do #VExUS
It's kind of "how I do it" guide and not necessarily optimized for research.
1st: Look at the IVC in both long and short axes
If big, do further scans 👇 #MedEd #FOAMed
2/ Lateral approach works best to obtain a straight segment of the portal vein (straight = best Doppler shift) and a nice hepatic vein too.
Place transducer approximately in the anterior axillary line pointing towards sternal notch. Then fan antero-posteriorly.
3/ Forgot what is fanning?
Its also called tilting or some people say, "look" in a particular direction from the same spot.
