Jokes like these are especially damaging and hurtful to patients with chronic illnesses. Additionally, they "validate" provider bias and "normalize" providers' lack of compassion when caring for certain groups of people. There's a lot to unpack, so buckle up 🧵🧵. 1/x Image
1. Using "frequent flyer" as a term to describe patients is dehumanizing, provides very little clinical information and context besides the fact that you think this person comes to the ER/ hospital frequently, and has been shown to ⬆️⬆️ implicit bias of those who read the chart.
Using unproductive terms like "frequent flyer" provides no differentiating information. The person with a life-long #chronicillness, a child who frequently is hurt, an under-resourced adult, and someone with a substance use disorder all fall into the same bucket clinically.

While the past couple of yrs hav undoubtedly been challenging for physicians & everyone in healthcare; it seems the acute on chronic overwhelm and toxic stress is what has led to significant amounts of moral injury, burnout, and for some of us trauma.
As a result dissatisfaction is high and so is attrition. We are struggling right now—healthcare is struggling.

But we can do this better. I know we can, and I know this personally as I found myself with severe #burnout not too long, suffering from #Morallnjury & #Trauma.
Much of my ability to recover was due to my learning with #Lodestar helping to develop more insight into trauma mitigation & trauma responsiveness. The work has been both life & perspective shifting, giving me a renewed commitment to rebuild an equitable healthcare system.

In 2020, 8,69,010 appeared for IIT JEE exam. Out of this top 2,50,000 are allowed to appear in IIT JEE Main Exam.
Total Number of B.Tech seats across all IIT's put together is 9737!!!

That means out of 2,50,000 people who give IIT JEE Main exam, only 9737 people get to join the course. Just 4% students get into IIT.

Does that mean that the other 96% were failures?
Of course not, they were not as good as those who got to the top of the merit list.

Our BJP leader is telling that those who failed NEET, have gone abroad. He, perhaps, has never appeared for a competitive exam in his 'entire' life.

An in-depth review of Humeral Shaft Fractures.

If you’re interested in orthopedics, you’ll definitely want to check this review out!


To view our past reviews, check out:
💻📱 Image
The humeral shaft is defined as the area distal to the surgical neck and proximal to the epicondyles.

The commonality of fracture is:
Middle ⅓ > Proximal ⅓ > Distal ⅓ shaft

The deforming forces of humeral shaft fractures usually result in what type of deformity?
Due to the muscular pull of the deltoid on the proximal fragment and medial/superior pull on the distal fragment, humeral shaft fractures tend to develop varus angulation.

Humeral shaft fractures are forgiving, and modest angulation can be overcome by the shoulders' large ROM. Image

It is composed of two bundles, named based on their tibial insertions:
✯ Anteromedial
✯ Posterolateral

What structure separates the femoral insertions of the two bundles?
AM bundle:
✯ Tightest in Flexion
✯ Resists anterior tibial translation
✯ Tested by Lachman's/Anterior Drawer

PL bundle:
✯ Tightest in Extension
✯ Rotatory Restraint
✯ Tested by Pivot Shift

An in-depth review of Clavicle Fractures.

If you're interested in orthopedics you won't want to miss this one!

Clavicle fractures are typically the result of a fall onto the shoulder and are one of the most common fractures in children.

They may also occur from direct trauma, seizures, or a fall onto an outstretched hand (FOOSH).
The clavicle serves as the connection between the UE and axial skeleton.

It is the first bone to ossify and the last to fuse. It is S-shaped and widest medially.

Most fractures occur in the middle 1/3rd, roughly 80%, which is the thinnest segment.

An in-depth review of intertrochanteric and subtrochanteric hip fractures.

If you're interested in orthopedics you won't want to miss this one!

Basicervical femoral neck, intertrochanteric (IT), and subtrochanteric (ST) hip fractures are different from femoral neck fractures in that they are extracapsular.

Extracapsular fractures, unlike intracapsular femoral neck fx, have a low likelihood of blood supply disruption/AVN
The calcar femorale is an extension of cortical bone from the proximal shaft to the posteromedial femoral neck. It aids in weight distribution from the hip to the proximal femoral shaft.

The subtrochanteric region extends 5 cm below the lesser trochanter.

An in-depth review of Ankle Fractures.

If you're interested in orthopedics you'll definitely want to check this review out!

The ankle is a complex hinge joint comprised of the tibial plafond, talar dome, and distal fibula.

Ankle fractures most commonly occur in elderly females, with roughly 70% being isolated malleolar, 20% being bimalleolar, and 5-10% being trimalleolar. (1)
When first examining a patient with an ankle injury, you can utilize the Ottawa Ankle Rules to determine if you should x-ray the patient.

An in-depth review of pediatric femoral shaft fractures.

If you're interested in orthopedics or pediatrics you'll definitely want to check this review out!

Pediatric femoral shaft (PFS) fractures constitute a small portion of pediatric fractures roughly 1-2% with a bimodal age distribution

Most common causes:
✯ Toddlers: falls
✯ Teenage/adolescent: MVA
In children younger than walking age child abuse must be suspected. As high as 80% of PFS fractures in this age group are due to child abuse.

In the toddler age group as high as 25% of PFS fractures are due to child abuse, so it must be ruled out.

Sri Avinash.T, Joint Secretary, Karnataka Govt. MEDI Employees Welfare Association notified employees of medical & superspeciality institutions, dept.of medical education not being covered under any cashless health scheme like Karnataka Arogya Sanjeevani.


1/4 ImageImage
While the Hon'ble High Court ordered the state government to consider these employees' requests, it is disheartening to note that they do not fall under the category of state employees.


#Doctors #MedicalEducation #Bengaluru #Karnataka

Even the committee constituted by the Director of Medical Education recommended the government to extend the cashless health scheme benefits to the employees of the above mentioned institutions.

These employees dedicated their heart and soul during the pandemic.

Es curioso porque clásicamente se decía que la ecografía pulmonar no era posible. Harrison afirmaba que " los ultrasonidos (US) se disipan rápidamente en el aire por lo que carecen de utilidad en la evaluación del parénquima pulmonar" ¿Qué ha cambiado? Image
Daniel Lichtenstein, un intensivista francés, redescubrió la ecografía pulmonar. Es cierto que los US no se transmiten bien por el aire, pero Lichtensein descubrió que pequeñas alteraciones en la relación aire-agua a nivel pulmonar formaban artefactos ecográficos característicos. Image

Sharing some tips for improving the abstract section of medical papers! As an editor, I spend a lot of time on the abstract. It’s often the only part of a paper that readers see due to access limitations and paywalls. #MedTwitter #academicWriting #MedicalEducation 1/
Journals differ in how much space they give for abstracts and how they are structured. Rule one is to follow the journal’s instructions to authors, but it’s generally better to err on the side of more detail. The abstract should stand on its own. 2/
I’m making the assumptions here that this is an abstract for a primary research paper and that the abstract is more or less structured: there are sections with headers like Objective/Methods/Results/Conclusions, or it’s expected that those topics are included. 3/

4 types of learning
#MedicalEducation now teaches about learning from teachers,self directed learning,peer learning & lifelong learning.This has been explained beautifully in this shloka long ago

आचार्यात् पादमादत्ते पादं शिष्यः स्वमेधया ।
सब्रह्मचारिभ्यः पादं पादं कालक्रमेण च ॥
One fourth from the teacher, one fourth from own intelligence,
One fourth from classmates, and one fourth only with time...

Not necessarily that one fourth should come from each of these, but is based on any individual’s capacity to absorb from each of these sources
1.Teacher : it’s a two way traffic here. The best of the teacher might not be successful if the student is not ready.The teacher can guide you , but you need the student to work on themselves, take help of their peers & nurture everything as you mature in time

1/ Some reflections on remote and online classroom style medical education vs face to face (F2F)

#FOAMed #MedicalEducation

A thread...
2/ The growth in remote MedEd has occurred through necessity. Remote is different but not better than F2F. It has some clear advantages but also significant disadvantages. Where possible we need to mitigate these problems.
3/ Delivery is not learning. Remote MedEd is high risk for providing something which is not received in any meaningful way. His is especially true for education which is not the agenda of the learners.
