I'll be adding short important points which would hopefully help in remembering certain concepts during #PLAB preparation, to this thread🧵every now and then as I take them out from my scattered notes. Feel free to comment your tips and tricks which would help others, as well 👇
Please don't take any of these as medical advice 😂🙏. Real life stuff is much more nuanced. These are just clinchers for the sake of the exam.
#PLAB
1. Drug contraindications...
-Avoid BAN drugs in Asthma (Beta blockers, aspirin, NSAIDS) &
-DAMN drugs in diarrhoea (Diuretics, ACEIs, Metformin, NSAIDs)

#Doctors and #Medicine need an #AI update.
Bold and convincing book.

@EricTopol
#ArtificialIntelligence has the ability to bring the fourth industrial revolution. Healthcare is deemed to be an industry which can get transformed the most.

#DeepMedicine
@EricTopol is a #cardiologist, historian of the present and a #MedicalFuturist.
He believes that the way we practice medicine now ( #ShallowMedicine ) relies too heavily on human inputs and is thus plagued by human biases and imperfections.

"Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" (John Lydon)

The publication of this letter & the nature of its correction raises questions about the reliability of the academic record.

@llantwit @FFLMUK @RCPath @AAPTTweets @mike4path @Richard56 @JJPJ #autopsy

THREAD

1/14
When the letter by Won Sriwijitalai & Viroj Wiwanitkit was published in #JFLM, fact-checking journalists @SureAndShare in Thailand shared their concerns about it on @Twitter & @Facebook.

2/14
@SureAndShare were concerned that they were unable to verify who the 1st author was (or where they worked), or the death of a #forensic #medical professional from #COVID19. They cautioned against sharing the story.

1/14 "In defense of Simethicone" - a Tweetorial for #GITwitter, #Gastroenterology - Instead of focusing on why we can't use Simethicone, I'll try to show you why we (endoscopists) should put it in the water, if u haven't, or re-start if you stopped.
2/14 - When you are doing a colonoscopy, bubbles are your enemy. There are now countless studies showing that adding simethicone improves both colon prep, inspection time, and most improtantly - Adenoma Detection Rate.
3/14 - Now the first mention of using Simethicone in the water bottle that I could find dates to 1995, so not too long ago. Ever since then, many docs, all over the world used it, and believe me when I say, if you forget to add it to the water, you really notice its absence.

Our new @ThaLancet Digital Medicine essay is especially timely
thelancet.com/journals/lance…
It's on #AI-assisted endoscopy w/ @tberzin, a co-author and collaborator in 3 randomized clinical trials @BIDMChealth
@tberzin @BIDMChealth Of the 6 randomized trials of #AI in medicine published to date, 5 are in #gastroenterology, using real-time machine vision during endoscopy. All of these were conducted in China.
@tberzin @BIDMChealth Unlike other deep neural networks for medical imaging, it requires real time assessment to detect an adenoma and decide whether a biopsy is indicated.
This video from Japan's @LPIXEL_Inc shows where the field is headed #AI

There have only been 5 randomized clinical trials of #AI in medicine to date. Here's the summary:
4 in gastroenterology (2 @LancetGastroHep, 2 @Gut_BMJ)
1 in ophthalmology (@EClinicalMed)
All were conducted in China
(None in radiology, pathology, dermatology or other specialties)
@LancetGastroHep @Gut_BMJ @EClinicalMed What constitutes suitable evidence for clinical implementation (and surveillance after) for #AI in #healthcare?
Here's @d_spiegel's take:
hdsr.mitpress.mit.edu/pub/56lnenzj @pubpub @harvard_data
@LancetGastroHep @Gut_BMJ @EClinicalMed While there are now hundreds of in silico, retrospective dataset reports, the number of prospective (non-randomized) trials in a real clinical environment testing #AI performance is limited. I only know of 11. Let me know if I'm missing any.

Here's more on the importance of the role of nutrition and exercise: anesthesiology.theclinics.com/article/S1932-…
Nutrition is a modifiable risk factor for post-operative outcomes. We must identify ‘at-risk’ patients early to help prevent malnutrition @StGDietitians
