Listen to this and letโ€™s reflect as a respiratory community how we can emulate #cardiology and transform outcomes in #asthma, #COPD, #bronchiectasis, #ILD +other chronic #respiratory diseases over the NEXT 50 years. This accompanies a great @nejm Perspective by @EricTopol. Think:
Cross-disciplinary interchange of ideas...integration of basic science and translational research...technological innovation...EBM...large cohorts...policy change...huge collaborative trials...adequate research funding...genetic insights...drug development... life-course...
...precision determinants of health...biomarkers...AI...

Respiratory #pulmonology - we need to be more bold.

A #MedEd Thread for #pulm #criticalcare #applicants. How do you pick a program? What questions do you ask in a fellowship #interview? Here are some ways programs differ and tagged @IUPCCM experts to answer any questions you may have! #MedTwitter
#PAH: Does Pulm house pulmonary hypertension and manage vasodilator therapy? Or is this managed by a different department? Are there opportunities to learn this if so? @TimLahm @RFPMachado
#IP: Do you have experts performing advanced #bronchoscopy such as #navigational? Does Pulm place stents, valves? Is there #EBUS volume for general fellows to become proficient? How much of this is done by other departments such as Thoracics or ENT? @ChrisKniese

Berikutnya sa ingin bahas #tuberkulosis #TBC yg masih aja disebut sebagai flek paru.

Istilah flek paru itu istilah lawas jaman kolonial karena ditemukan bercak di foto ronsen dada (CXR). Padalan #covid19 pun gambarannya bisa seperti itu.

Tinggalkan istilah flek paru!
#Tuberkulosis #TBC termasuk penyakit menular, karena infeksi bakteri ๐˜”๐˜บ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ถ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ค๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ด. Menular lewat cipratan dahak di udara.

Jadi pencegahan utama #TB adalah etika batuk yang benar, jangan asal tembak. Tutupi dgn lengan atau sapu tangan.
Gejala #TB: batuk (bisa kering, bisa berdahak, bisa berdarah) kronik (>2 pekan), keringat malam walau gk aktivitas atau gk lagi sumuk/panas, berat badan turun, mudah letih. Bahkan jaman dulu nama penyakit ini "consumption" atau "wasting" krn korbannya kurus kering.

1/4 Saw this at Bandstand today. As a chest physician, this made me very happy! Pigeons are responsible for an interstitial lung disease (ILD) called hypersensitivity pneumonitis or extrinsic allergic alveolitis. Image
2/4 Most chest physicians and radiologists in the city will tell you how the number of patients with the disease has consistently increased over the years, paralleling the increase in the pigeon population of the city.
3/4 Thank you, whoever was responsible for this, and I hope this awareness increases! #interstitiallungdisease #lunghealth #lung #pigeon #mumbai #bandstand #ild @RajaniSurendarB @bandrabuzz @RupsaChak @AlexandraUlmer

1/ Continuing the #immunosuppression #tweetorial series...@MedTweetorials

Today's player: #mTORi, mammalian/mechanistic target of rapamcyin inhibitors

Rapamcyin was @US_FDA approved for #kidneytransplant in 2003.

It was isolated from a soil sample from which island in 1975?
2/ Meet mTOR, a phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3)-related kinase (adds a phos). mTOR adds a phosphoryl group to serine/threonine residues.

It is a key component of the complexes mTORC1 and mTORC 2 - which regulate processes including cell growth, proliferation, and survival.
3/ mTOR inhibition blocks "Signal 3" of #TCell activation - reducing cytokine dependent cell proliferation and activation.

Take a look at all 3 signals below ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝโ€ฆ

1/ Dear #ILD #medtwitter, what about we discuss ILA (interstitial lung abnormalities) definition?

I am so curious to know how you all see this complex subject (just ILD being ILD, right? :-)

So please answer the poll bellow and/or comment; This is much appreciated!
2/ You understand the term ILA as an imaging alteration that consists of:
#pulmonaryfibrosis #ILD
3/ If you answered that ILA should be defined as *mild* imaging abnormalities (thought to be interstitial in nature) in the poll above, I would like to know how you think we should be the best way to define *mild*.
