Thrilled and delighted to be a part of the GOAL trial team – published in @NEJM this week.…
What is the GOAL trial and what does it mean? A thread.
1/🧵 Image
GOAL stands for GwokO Adunu pa Lutino meaning “Protect the Heart of a Child.” ❤️🩺🚸
This trial tested a new strategy to prevent premature death and disability from Rheumatic Heart Disease #RHD 2/ Image
RHD causes >300,000 annual deaths & enormous morbidity, esp in LMIC countries, Indigenous and disadvantaged communities. Many are children or young adults in their prime. Most present with advanced disease, so little opportunity for intervention. 3/…

#Ecocardiografía y Cálculos Hemodinámicos

Este Sábado 16 de Octubre estuvo con nosotros la Dra. Eva Lemos para hablar de #POCUS, & #FoCUS específicamente.
¿Te lo perdiste?🚩

Estará en #YouTube y abrimos 🧵 con algunos de los puntos más interesantes y comentarios extras:
Las bases son #Fundamentales.

Nos dió un recordatorio simplificado del sustento físico que nunca sobra al hablar de POCUS (y siempre se hecha de falta si no se tienen las bases).
Características del US, donde ocuparás varias palabras de las cuales debes estar familiarizado.
Y no podemos olvidarnos de la #interacción del haz del US y los tejidos.

🔇No toda emisión regresará al transductor y debes saber el por qué.

So what shall we post & do on this #WorldMentalHealthDay
One ‘alter’ despairs over the rejection & disappointment we feel when we don’t get engagement in our efforts to generate awareness & improve the base of knowledge with people outside of our own #mentalhealth community.
But then the same alter & ‘I’ have this inner drive and passion to see change and also to support others who aren’t able to speak out. So on one hand we are like why do we bother, what’s the point, nothing changes. People have their own lives, they don’t want to hear heavy stuff
They’d rather spend time watching movies & TV or just getting on with what’s in front of them, their responsibilities and we don’t ‘blame’ them, we understand. But you see we don’t have a choice, like anyone dealing with serious ‘illness’ and/
or dealing with stigma of any kind

* How to #Focus *

Few young adults asked me ways to improve focus.
Sharing what I follow.

To begin with :
* Turn off all gadgets
* Sit in a room & read hard copies of books / newspapers
* Primarily try to focus & absorb the content
* Read aloud if necessary

* First read with an intention of consuming content . Read slowly
* Gradually shift to reflecting upon it
* Then memorising points
* Finally writing takeaways

* Don't use mobile / laptop for reading when developing attention span . Mostly they are counter productive !

* It takes time to develop focus.
Won't happen overnight , especially given the addiction to mobile & social media.
So begin consciously & slowly !

* Gradually increase reading speed & time & retention

* Switch to kindle only when comfortable level of focus is reached

En nuestros #SabadosdePOCUS tuvimos a @ACRP901 con el tema:

"Los Secretos Ecográficos de la Vena Cava Inferior (#VCI/#IVC)"

¿Quieres enterarte de alguna puntos claves?

Abrimos hilo... 🧵 #POCUS
Un punto clave del Dr. @ACRP901: "Los niños no son adultos pequeños"
La VCI sigue siendo esquiva.
Es #Fundamental conocer la fisiología y anatomía al tocar este tema.
Y recuerda: los secretos se encontrarán en la #Fisiología más que en la ecografía per se.
La #VCI se encuentra inmersa en varios protocolos y en las modificaciones de cada uno de estos dependiendo el contexto del paciente (#FOCUS, #RUSH, #EFAST).

Se habían utilizado a la #VCI regularmente para medir el estado de volemia y una posible respuesta (o no) a fluidos.

Das schockt mich sehr.

Laut #BILD und #Focus ist die #CDU-Bundestagsabgeordnete Karin #Strenz (#Aserbaidschan) auf dem Rückflug von Kuba nach Deutschland gestorben.

Auch eine Notlandung in Dublin konnte sie nicht retten.

Trotz der Diskrepanzen mein aufrichtiges Beileid. /TN
Bei einer solchen Nachricht sollte man die Politik ruhen lassen und an die Angehörigen denken.

Der Tod ist eine ganz andere Dimension und da hat die Politik zu schweigen. /TN
Ab jetzt wird jeder dämliche Kommentar dazu gelöscht und die Person blockiert.

Habt doch wenigstens bei solchen Themen mal Respekt und Anstand. /TN

Focus on #China & #Russia = 2 most significant geopol threats to global peace & prosperity—

Clear stakes:

"China has implemented a strategy & revisionist approach that aims at the heart of the US’ #maritime power."…
"... our three #Sea Services have watched with alarm the growing #naval #power of the People’s Republic of #China & the increasingly aggressive behavior of the Russian Federation.

Our globally deployed naval forces interact w/ #Chinese & #Russian #warships & #aircraft daily."
"We witness firsthand their increasing sophistication and growing aggressiveness. ... The People’s Republic of #China represents the most pressing, long-term strategic threat."…

The Truth About #OpenOffices
”When the firms switched to open offices, face-to-face interactions fell by 70%.”

#HRM #WorkplaceDesign…
But ”hybrid #openoffice designs are not a panacea. If you are going to let people choose the spaces that best meet their individual needs, your workers might as well be remote.”
And #remotework hinders #communication: ”we found that remote workers communicated nearly 80% less about their assignments than colocated team members did; in 17% of projects they didn’t communicate at all.”

#Elektroautos sind "klimaschädlicher als ein 'moderner Verbrenner' (TM)". Behauptet das Institut für Kolbenmaschinen am @KITKarlsruhe in einer Studie für den #VDI @handelsblatt und @focusonline berichteten groß
Das habe ich mir genauer angesehen
1 der #Focus bläst das Papier gar zur Reinen Lehre auf:
der VDI habe "erstmals eine deutlich umfassende Gesamtbilanz berechnet"…
das ist natürlich Unfug, solche LCAs gibt es schon lange
2) doch das Papier enthält mehrere falsche Annahmen:

a) "die Zellfertigung ist heute in #China" deswegen hat das IFKM mal eben auch in europäischen und US-E-Autos mit dem chinesischen Strommix gerechnet

A quickfire thread based on a book I read recently titled " 80/20 YOUR LIFE " .

Disclaimer : This is MY interpretation & the ratio (80/20) is variable..
The essence here is to identify what matters & weed out the inconsequential & thereby manage time accordingly.
The #Pareto principle - 80/20 Rule is pretty well known & discussed in context of work & business productivity.
But it can also be applied practically in our day to day life in all possible aspects to ensure smooth sailing.
How do we do that? 🤔
Pretty simple actually !
Our Top priority goal must be a S.M.A.R.T goal aka :

Time based goal .

Everything is #time based as time saved can be used constructively for other purposes or even wasted happily ! :))

1/11 One from my blog archives...

It's weekend & I decided to do something child like . Started building a house out of "THE YOUNG ARCHITECT" blocks which were gifted to me for my 10th birthday! ( Yes , I keep things carefully!!) 😇
+ Image
Filled with excitement akin to a 10 year old , I carefully laid out a blueprint of the desired house in my mind palace ( Sherlock fan 😉)& began with gusto ! But I made the layman error of not paying proper attention to the surface area required for a sturdy construction.
There went my initial efforts in vain as I saw the house crashing like a bowling ball hitting skittles !!! 🙄
I reworked & this time ensured my unwavering attention to the base ,gradually building the house. Basically just going with the flow, enjoying myself immensely.

Tracing for the #RealMoses Standby. BIG Thread. 🔥 🔥 🔥

We will read the scriptures literally as we connect the dots.

Moses’ mother was a Levite, Jochebed (Yo'Cheved, Numbers 26:59), which means, "Yahweh’s honour" or “Yahweh is glory” (NOBSE Study Bible Name List&Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names).
2/ Moses' siblings were given in the Hebrew Scriptures as Aharown (Aaron) (Exodus 4:14) and Miryam (Miriam) (Exodus 6:20 and Numbers 26:57-59).

At the age of 40, he fled to Midian where he lived for 40 years (Exodus 2:11-15).

Every man on earth has a unique race and timeline.
You might be "age mates" with the person next door but differ in miles as "grace mates".

It takes commitment to start any project in life, but more than commitment it takes consistency -

1/4 Image
( Hard work, Smart work, Steadfastness, Failing and rising again) to stay relevant and get to the finish line.

You can admire another man's hustle. Stay motivated by his hustle but never be envious or look down on your self if you are not on the same pedestal.

Remember, it is A's turn today, it might be yours in the next few hours or at most the next day. Wish no man bad(even your supposed enemies).

Your being alive today is not a mistake, be grateful for life.
You are the best version of yourself. Yes! I know you are, do you?
