How I secured AIR 814 in NEET PG 2023.
A 🧵

1. My previous ranks
NEET PG 2021 - 22244
NEET PG 2022 - 8474

I was working till July 2022 under compulsory rural service post MBBS till June of 2022. Could not get MD Gen MED, so decided to drop and prepare for the next 6-7 months.
Until July of 2022, I only solved Marrow Q banks and did pearls. Did not study any notes.
Then I came across @DrAditya2935 sirs videos of how a person cracked the exam using revision notes and his suggestion of Kam Pado Baar Baar Pado.
It was really difficult to start off with notes because I had never used them. But slowly I got the hang of it. Solved PYQs and annotated them to my Marrow Revision notes. I also subscribed to Reflex app by @DrAditya2935 sir and solved as much as I could.

Resources to study #Neurology

Adams and Victor’s. By far my favourite textbook.
The book is more clinically oriented, coloured with anecdotes and mental models. Reading it feels like seeing a pt in the ward/OPD

#MedTwitter #neurotwitter
It has elements of philosophy, history and is written eloquently.
Whimsical, yet profound, it’s teachings stay with me. Added bonus, my Guru in Neurology finds mention in the text 🙃 I’d recommend this for #mbbs #md and #dm students
Bradley is the standard #textbook in #neurology. A great book, it’s more like #Harrison. Great for information, latest research and management. Essential for the DM #neurology candidate, but also useful for MD #internalmedicine

Yes indeed
Adrenal #tuberculosis is one of the most common causes of #addisons disease
Rifampicin can precipitate a crisis as it increases the metabolism of cortisol and lowers its levels
Infact Rifampicin can unmask pre existing adrenal insufficiency.
#MedTwitter #MBBS
#Tuberculosis of adrenal glands occurs when ususally >90% of the gland is destroyed by TB.
usually bilateral in more than 70%.
Hence treatment of coexistent TB may not reverse the insufficiency.

Okay, I have 2 major doubts in this #HippocraticOath issue at #Madurai:

1. Medical colleges in #TamilNadu were communicated about the change in oath by @NMC_IND 2.5 months ago. It was admitted by the @MaduraiMedical VP in the story (published on Feb 15) below. But...

Why the #TamilNadu govt. did not issue a clarification or circular to all govt. & private medical colleges for the past 2.5 months till April 30, reiterating the stand over a Centre vs. State conflict?

So, why didn't @Subramanian_ma & @RAKRI1 instruct the Director of Medical Education (DME) to issue a circular to all colleges in Feb, immediately when they learnt about the issue, if TN had decided to stick to #HippocraticOath, as opposed to NMC guideline❓❓

Duration of Antibiotic Therapy
Deciding on the duration of antimicrobial therapy for an infection is neither straightforward nor simple. 👇
#MedTwitter #MedEd #USMLE #FOAMed #hospitalist #mbbs #medicine #doctor
#medschool #MedStudentTwitter #medstudent #TwitterRx

Most ID guidelines are based- either expert opinions or evidence-based medicine. Historically, duration of ABX Rx were based on arbitrary extension of days(magic numbers like 7, 10 & 14 days) rather than on reliable evidence with the main aim to ⬇️ failures & avoid underRx.

There is growing evidence to support for shorter courses. It is important for prescribers to be up to date with best practices. Duration of therapy plays a pivotal role in antimicrobial stewardship programme within the global effort to optimize antibiotic use &⬇️resistance.

Edema of the deep dermis & subcutaneous tissues.

Etiology, types and treatments👇👇👇👇⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️👇👇👇👇


#MedTwitter #MedEd #USMLE #FOAMed #hospitalist #mbbs #medicine #doctor
Mast cell–derived mediators tend to affect layers superficial to subcutaneous tissue, including the dermal-epidermal junction. These mediators cause urticaria & pruritus.

In bradykinin-mediated angioedema, the dermis is usually spared, so urticaria & pruritus are absent.

Typical excretion of cortisol ➡️diurnal pattern with peaking in the a.m, ⬇️toward the afternoon, & ⬆️ in the early p.m. The basal adrenal production of cortisol is 10-15 mg daily. #MedTwitter #MedEd #USMLE #FOAMed #hospitalist #mbbs #medicine #doctor
Physiologic & psychological stress can boost daily production of cortisol to 3 or more times typical levels.
Adrenal insufficiency: caused by a disease involving the adrenal gland itself (primary AI) or one altering its regulation by the hypothalamus and pituitary (secondary AI)
Primary AI results from destruction or replacement of the adrenal cortex. Addison’s disease (autoimmune destruction of the adrenal cortex) accounts for 80% to 90% of primary AI. Image

Listen to this story of #tuberculosis
Real, not fiction. Even though may sound like super fiction. Of a patient now admitted under me.

56 yr man. Prior #smoker No #alcohol use, no #DRUGS. Family guy. Starts havin cough. Nagging no sputum
Keeps him awake at night
He goes 2 a GP. Clinical examination and blood tests done. Says some chest infection. Puts him on antibiotics for a week. Asks for review. 1wk later some change in symptoms, but not fully ok. GP extends antibiotic course 7 more days. C, no fever and no signs of infection yet.
After 14d course, no change. Patient chucks the GP. Goes for a senior GP. Senior GP does clinical exam,blood tests AND chest X ray. X ray comes back as "not looking normal" 🙄 But no diagnosis. So he says. Let's try a short course of #antibiotics AND antifungal. Again 14 days
