Tweetorial of @AparnaHoskote ‘s fantastic talk on #ecmo pearls for #singleventricle #chd in the #PedsCICU #PedsICU at #jpccim2019. Single ventricle pts have 43% ecmo survival. Several tweets to follow with pearls for how to optimize! @PICS_Conference @PCICS2 @PICSociety
Pearl 1: Timing is important; go on #ecmo electively
#jpccim2019 2/10
Pearl 2: hypoxemia is a better indication with better prognosis than hypotension (I.e. shunt issues are better than cardiac dysfunction) #jpccim2019 3/10

Antes de continuar este hilo, recuerda pasar a revisar la primera parte, por lo que te dejamos el enlace⬇️

Recordemos que en todo paciente grave, tener la mayor información posible antes de que llegue a Urgencias es fundamental.
El mejor desenlace ocurre con un adecuado apoyo prehospitalario, por lo que debemos apoyar a los servicios prehospitalarios y contribuir a su capacitación.

Palliative & end of life care is a small but critically important part of #pedsICU

Our community has the knowledge & skills that our patients need but we lack simple & robust frameworks

My talk on #pedsPC at @worldcongressic #WCIC19
@worldcongressic Few kids die but they die after long battles, with chronic illnesses & in hospital or #pedsICU

¾ kids who die in PICU do after WLST

= palliative care in the PICU is inextricably linked with care in the PICU, & we are the best ppl to manage it

#pedsPC #WCIC19 @worldcongressic
@worldcongressic A simple & robust framework for palliative care in the #pedsICU

1. See clearly (use benefits vs burdens)
2. Build professional consensus
3. Create shared understanding w family
4. Offer active palliative care

Why is so important (even vital) to improve research networks in LMICs ?
Here an awesome example of why NO ONE IS BETTER THAN ALL TOGETHER

Nadie es mejor que todos juntos. Sobre la importancia del trabajo en RED.

First, CONTEXT. Look at this video from Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in #Malawi 🇲🇼
Primero para conocer el CONTEXTO, miren este video

With the help of @PICJournalWatch @harrykchris we though we could put together a collaborative thread with useful #PedsICU resources like apps, websites, blogs and accounts. This thread is open so please don’t hesitate to add yours. Here are mine 👇🏻
- I-Perfuse: great tool for anything cardiovascular including #ECMO cannula sizes, equations, a calculator... very useful for #PedsCICU
- Heartpedia: awesome 3D models of heart anatomy. Also great for teaching at the #PedsCICU. And it was created by the great @pccm_doc
Apps continued:
- The Sanford Guide: it costs 25€/year. I’d pay 250€ since I use it everyday in the #PedsICU. Basically everything you need to now about antibiotics and bugs #PedsID.

Cuidados de Segundo Nivel en #TBI

Abro hilo, iniciamos y abierto los comentarios👩‍💻👨‍💻

#PedsICU #EduMed #MedEd
Cuarto hilo de #TBI enfocado a los casos Severos por Escala de Coma de Glasgow. Te sugerimos leer los hilos previos para continuar la temática (Abordaje prehospitalario y Urgencias, Cuidados Basales y Terapias de Primer Nivel)
Iniciamos comentándote que todas las terapias de segundo nivel "cuentan con mayor cantidad de efectos adversos", por lo que debes estar preparado para tratar estos efectos y saber como solucionarlos (te cobrarán factura). Una vez mencionando esto, iniciamos.

How did we started with heated humified high flow nasal cannula in 🇺🇾 ?

Easy explanation of 3 #HHHFNC homemade models #HFNC devices?

It is really easy.
You can get information of its uses and applications in this nice review in @respcare ▶️

This is basically the diagram 👇
So back in 2012 in our country we wanted to try some kind of respiratory support for the youngest infants in which interfases for #NIV was difficult.

SO we came up with an idea: What if we dismantle the old ventilators we do not use any more?

Citation counts come from OTHER RESEARCHERS. They are important, yes.

But, sharing #science on #SoMe=broad & instantaneous dissemination to those who focus their time AT THE BEDSIDE. Which may surprise some- but is MOST OF MEDICINE especially....#anesthesiology.(Thread) #AUA2019
A metric like the “Kardashian Index” *MAY* be relevant in genome biology where the proportion of basic/translational science is significantly higher and no immediate bedside application for a general practitioner is there. (and I’m making an assumption here) #medtwitter #aua2019
When your #research is relevant primarily to other #scientists who are also writing research papers then citation counts do more wholly reflect the paper’s impact. But in clinical research, it’s different. Bedside clinicians are looking to the literature for guidance & new ideas.

Some time ago y discovered this amazing project:…

Altough it needs updating, I am sure many things shouldn´t have changed a bit.

Like this map of phisicians working


My collegue @mardi_steere is currently working with @PECCAfrica and gathering info about health-care human resources in the african continent. Today she detected a frightening number👉6 #PEM / #PEdsICU trained docs for more than 800 millons inhab👇

Yes, believe the numbers

TO make things worse:
It is predicted that by 2050, 35–40% of children and adolescents globally are projected to be living in Africa.

Daremos un repaso discreto de CAD y analizaremos el texto de la NICE Pathway

Comentaremos con relación a las guías @ispad_org, una de las más utilizadas a nivel mundial

En pocas palabras, el diagrama con relevante información
#CAD puede presentarse en #T1D y #T2Diabetes. Debido a obesidad, han aumentado los casos en esta última, presentándose también como debút.

#T1D es resultado de destrucción autoinmune progresiva de células beta. Ocurre a una tasa de 6-8%/año en aquellos con Dx establecido.

Objetivo del algoritmo es su utilidad en el manejo general en #PedsICU en el TBI severo así como aspectos específicos

La definición es simple y fácil de recordar.

A pesar de existir muchas más, la definición de la #OMS es práctica y usada a nivel mundial.
La mayoría son extensiones <20%

En #Latam las lesiones por escaldadura son el tipo principal de quemaduras reportadas

Si hay afectación a vía aérea, los costos y morbi-mortalidad se incrementan.

>% afectada = >% mortalidad

There is a fundamental misunderstanding in the public about end-of-life care, which I think is relate to, but not the root cause of, a significant amount of vitriol directed at abortion by forced birth advocates. 1/
If there is one thing I have learned in the #pedsICU, where death and dying are part of everyday life and medicine, it is that the goal of medicine is not to “save” the life of every baby, child, adolescent, or adult that comes through the doors. 2/
The medical team acts on the wishes of the parents and family to provide goal-directed care based on the patient’s quality of life, potential for meaningful recovery, and more. We can almost always keep a heart beating,but that doesn’t always mean we should. 3/

Hi, all. I’m giving noon conference to the UIC residents on use of social media next week

Can we show them the power of #SoMe?

Any tips you recommend?

@SapnaKmd @namd4kids @hshermd @MAhealthforkids @DrCJohns @DrJaimeFriedman @greenhousemd @PergamIC @sbernsteinmd @EMeadeMD
Side note: there were literally dozens of people I wanted to tag. I used the very scientific method of hitting @ and just putting in names

I’d love for anyone to respond, but if you do, please don’t forget to remove tag for everyone else so I don’t bother all those fine people
Also, @DrJas_Saavedra - do you want this to be a how-to or a why-to talk?

Welcome all my new #PICUQI friends to twitter! Don't be overwhelmed by the number of #PedsICU and #PICUQI tweets right now--they will sadly slow down after #CCC48. In this thread, I will recommend some great follows and some quick how to tutorials!
How do I use # AKA hashtags? Click on the #PedsICU, #CCC48, and #PICUQI hashtags above and see who is tweeting about what you are interested in and what they are saying!
