OK, time for a tweet summary of what we know from the paediatric literature about #COVID19 in kids SO FAR

Given the disease has only existed for 3 months, it's quite a lot...

#FOAMPed #PedsICU #IDTwitter

Kids get MUCH less severe disease than adults. Mortality AND critical illness v. low (close to 0%), confirmed from both China and Italian data……
Kids PROBABLY acquire the disease less often than adults. Low rates seen in symptomatic cohorts, and in S Korea which had higher rates of population screening.…

Japanese contact tracing found lower attack rates in children…

I spent the afternoon with many @HopkinsMedicine colleagues making #ppe for the staff. I am sharing (with permission) the steps and materials for making faceshields of your own. We are all in this together. ❤️💪🏼 #PPEshortage #ppeisnotoptional #PedsICU #covid19 #ICU #healthcare
@AOC @BarackObama @HillaryClinton @SenSchumer @SenateDems @JoeBiden @3M we need your help! The #PPEshortage is real and many of us are helping make #ppe to keep our colleagues in #healthcare safe. #GetMePPE #ppeisnotoptional #WeNeedPPE

All "Mechanical ventilation for dummies" videos in one thread so we can have a bit of discussion around each topic. All questions encouraged, will try to answer to the best of my knowledge! @lberto_Medina #SoMe4MV #PedsICU
I will dedicate each video to a friend and ask them to help me with the discussion (no pressure). We are learning together, and we are a team!

#medtwitter- now not time to dress up at work. Do it like staff in operating room. #COVID19 #ICU #pulmcc #PedsICU

1. Wear “Commute clothes” from home. Old stuff/shoes you don’t care about.

2. Remove commute clothes before any pt/team contact in office/locker room.

3. Wear Surgical scrubs from machine if possible- if you don’t have access see if you can get it. Otherwise keep several clean pairs of scrubs in locker/office

4. Deposit scrubs end of day or if not from machine,keep in closed bag.

#covid19 #medtwitter #icu #PedsICU #pulmcc
4. Wear Commute clothes home, straight into wash.

5. Repeat.

Trust me this is important- do not wear your clothes home. #SocialDistancing #covid19 #medtwitter

T1. Each March for the last decade, I have given a visiting lecture at @GWpublichealth "Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Disease Epidemiology", which combines my love of math w/ work relevant to my life in the #PedsICU (disclaimer: I am not an ID doc)
T2. This year unfortunately, we weren't able to find a date that worked but given the emergence of #COVID19, I thought it might be worthwhile providing a little context to some of the terms being thrown around the interwebs.

Si escribo coronavirus probablemente encienda en tu cabeza varias alarmas.
Si lees que, como todo virus, no suele requerir de tratamiento específico quizá esa alarma suene extraña.
Si añades distancia e incertidumbre tienes un cóctel revuelto y agitado.
Hablemos del cóctel pues.
Este #HiloYTal tendrá los siguientes apartados:
2️⃣ El PERO
3️⃣ La CURA
5️⃣ ¿Conclusión?
El coronavirus depende de aquel a quien infecta para replicarse. Tipo con instrucciones pero sin material ni herramientas.
Llega al individuo, alcanza las células que tapizan su vía aérea y entra en su interior para amueblarse la casa.

#tweetorial #MedEd #PedsICU
Los esfuerzos para reducir la incidencia de quemaduras han tenido resultados variables.
El asesoramiento familiar en las visitas al pediatra en el control de niño sano puede ser lo más efectivo.
Existen programas educativos y en lugares públicos que buscan prevenir este tipo de accidentes, siendo estos diferentes en cada país.

1/15 #Fever #tweetorial

Parents and paediatricians alike are obsessed with fever

We've all got fever fever 🔥 But it is SO misunderstood

Let's take a look at what fever actually is, and finish off with some myth busting!

#FOAMPed #FOAMed #IDTwitter #PedsICU #PedsID
Fever (pyrexia) is an elevated core body temperature as part of a physiological response to infection controlled by the hypothalamus

This is opposed to hyperthermia, a pathological elevated temperature

This is important, as your body is IN CONTROL. Fever happens on purpose
What temperature counts as a fever?

There's no strict definition (there's no really good data on what a "normal" temperature is...), but an arbitrary cut of off 38C is often used.

Its better taken in context; 37.8C following temps >38.5C is probably still a fever.

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

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.

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?

(No COI to declare)

#PedsICU #SoMe4MV #historyofmedicine @WFPICCS
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.
