Took me a while, but in response to @AmyPearsonMD tweet of my talk last week @uihealthcare, a thread on ⬆️FiO2 and #SSI.

Whether intraoperative high inspired oxygen is beneficial is not a settled question.* This thread explains why I routinely use it unless there is a contraindication. bit.ly/2gexBIz

*The evidence that it is NOT harmful is overwhelming.
Impetus to investigate high-inspired O2 grew out of in vitro, animal, human volunteer, & patient studies (1960s-90s): wound hypoxia associated with⬆️#SSI & peripheral vasoconstriction resulting from SNS activation is common source of wound hypoxia. bit.ly/2H9SlfS

Let's remove barriers so that #PharmacyTechnicians in the UK can be trained to vaccinate, and support attainment of community immunity

Now's the time to produce a training programme & PSDs to support the delivery of this year's flu prevention plan

#vaccines #InfectionPrevention
We need to adopt QI methodology to address this #publichealth concern

The drivers are clear - this is about ⬆️ #patientsafety via #prevention

It should not be about inter-professional competition; there is enough work for everyone
It's important to #vaccinate as many people as possible to protect those who're vulnerable

Although UK flu activity levels were not high last year, impact on 2°care was high due to hospitlisation & ICU admissions

This year looks set to ⬆️ so let's be innovative w/ healthcare WF
