A tiny little thread on #Sleep and #Success!
Let's break some myths. 🙂
"If I sleep less, I will study more!"
But that motivational speaker told me- "Dreams are not what you see during sleep, dreams are things which don't let you sleep!"

डॉ. #Ambedkar से पढ़ने की तरकीब सीखने लायक है

१. #Finish - एक शाम उन्होंने किताब उठायी तो चार बजे सुबह खत्म कर ही सोए। एक मोटी किताब में 64 घंटे तक नित्य कर्म के अतिरिक्त कुछ और नहीं किया

२. #Improve #PageCounts- वेनिस और लंदन की यात्रा में उन्होंने 6000 पृष्ठ पढ़े
३. #Sleep on books- वह अपने बिस्तर के साथ लगे स्टूल पर दर्जन भर किताबें रखते थे, जिन्हें पढ़ते हुए देर रात सोते थे।

४. #Write on books- वह पुस्तकों को पढ़ कर उन्हें अपने लेखों में सम्मिलित करते थे।

५. #Collect books- उनका संग्रह भारत के सबसे बड़े निजी संग्रहों में था
इतना पढ़ने के बाद भी उन्होंने कहा, “दुनिया की सभी महत्वपूर्ण किताबें पढ़ने के लिए मुझे नौ जन्म लेने होंगे”

६. #accessibility - पुस्तकों कहाँ रखी है, #lighting कैसी है, और वहाँ बैठने की जगह है या नहीं, यह भी महत्वपूर्ण है

While #science thought us that we can even cut and paste #genes with #CRISPR technology…even with that we only influence 3% to 5% of #chronicillness. The rest depends on #how you #live your #life!!! So how do we #SelfRegulate our #body?
1. Good #sleep is more important than most think! What happens during sleep? The fluctuation of consciousness…that we call the waking state. But in many wisdom traditions of the world, the waking state is merely a lucid dream that consciousness is having…

2/ Extensive epidemiological data has found that sleep impacts the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

1/🧵 Sleep for Sick Patients & #LongCOVID

If sleep is so important, why do we wake you up (hourly) in hospital?

Do #LongCOVID pts need MORE rest than they think?

We’re studying this to see if “forcing” hospital quiet times helps people survive & get less #delirium.

Read on…
2/ It makes sense to me that it’s unhealthy to keep waking up people who are trying to get rest & heal.

If the body needs 7 hours #sleep a night when NOT sick (see 🧵 in tweet above), is it anti-medicine to prevent us from even more sleep when so much repair is needed? Image
3/ @fi_lowenstein & @itsbodypolitic wrote a wonderful piece about how she “rested herself” to health when suffering #LongCOVID.

I tell my COVID survivors @CIBScenter, “However much sleep/rest you think you need, double it.”

Hello all! I am excited to present “Time to move from “push” to “pull”: A collaborative process for implementing movement behaviour curricula in undergraduate medical education”
- Tami Morgan, Queen’s University @QueensSKHS @Queensu
3rd year PhD Candidate
If you research or practice #PhysicalActivity in #MedEd, you may recall a number of “calls to action” issued over the years, “pushing” for medical schools to add physical activity to their overextended curricula—for more, see @CmejEditor editorial below & Part B soon in 12(5)
These calls to action have recommended that new objectives and learning hours be added to the curriculum, when medical educators have stated that they do not have time. Unsurprisingly, few medical schools have sustainably implemented physical activity in their curricula.

Now we get to another area of particular interest for me: circadian rhythms and #fatigue. Elizabeth Klerman presenting. (1/5) #sleep
How does sleep/circadian rhythms affect various body systems and ultimate effects?
First I've heard of health disparities, here; well done, Klerman. #fatigue #sleep
Circadian rhythms WILL affect results in studies. Researchers, take note!
Record time of events, blood draws, etc.!
Include sleep metrics in subjects!
Circadian =/ diurnal.
Most studies that say they're talking about circadian rhythms are actually referencing diurnal rhythms.

1/🧵Wake-Up to how #SLEEP flushes waste from your brain 🧠 @JAMA_current
I may get more done when I 💤 less, but I lose the long-game! #Evolution dictated that we gain an advantage by spending 1/3rd of our lives asleep.

I’ll tell you WHY?

2/ Why do we sleep? Brain rest? To process bad decisions or incomplete conversations? Maybe. But the coolest reason is removal of #amyloid & #tau proteins that cause #dementia. Our #glymphatic system does this most efficiently during deep sleep.
3/ Have I mentioned that I’m fascinated by the glymphatic system? It’s the lymph system for our #brain & serves as the “garbage” removal program to keep our #neurons healthy. Wanna know more?

I have heard so many people talk about new or worsened #insomnia during #COVID19.

My PSA for today. Do not lay in bed if you are not sleeping! #sleep #sleeping #CBTi @nytimes (1/6)…
I know that with disrupted schedules, and sky high anxiety, this can be tough, but it is the #1 sleep advice I have given clinically this year. You want your bed to be a place associated with sleep and comfort, not worry and frustration (2/6).
Create a safe and cozy space for yourself somewhere outside your bedroom, and if you can't fall asleep within 15 minutes (you know that feeling!) get up and read/do a puzzle/listen to a podcast, until you're sleepy and then try again (3/6).

1/ #Sleep & #Dementia: @NatureComms
Study of ~8,000 people followed for 25 years! Look at the figures. Sleeping <7 hrs per night chronically increases risk of dementia by 30%.  Get your sleep!

#MedTwitter #MedEd #Geriatrics
2/ Sleep and Dementia Risk: @nytimes

@PamBelluck wrote a great article on this NatureComm paper showing heightened risk of #dementia for “short-sleepers,” defined as <7 hrs of sleep a night.

#Aging #Delirium
3/ What’s the Mechanism?

Our brain’s “trash” clearance (like the body’s Lymphatic system but by brain’s “glial” cells & called Glymphatics) kicks into ⬆️ gear in sleep. So less sleep is like your waste management system going on strike. Kapische??

Here is why you can't STOP OVERTHINKING: A THREAD

Brain waves: Our brain produces 4 different types of waves depending on the activity-
Beta waves- When we are actively thinking
Alpha waves- When we are in a free flow of thought
Theta waves- When you are dreaming at night or daydreaming
Delta waves- When you are in a dreamless state
During Daytime: Our days are sometimes completely filled with activities and distractions such that we are always in a Beta wavelength.
This hardly gives our brain time to relax or go into any other wave state.

1/ In 2014, a meta-analysis of randomized controlled parallel-group trials comparing placebos to sleep drugs for primary insomnia showed statistically significant small-to-moderate effect size improvements that favored drugs
2/ However, the small number of polysomnography studies between 1992 to 2012 were low quality, resulting in “these effects sizes to be non-robust” according to the fail-safe N statistic. If “causal interpretations from non-robust models should be avoided”
3/ then our confidence in non-robust small-to-moderate effect sizes should wane. A year later in '15 the same authors conducted a meta-analysis on the placebo effect in primary insomnia from randomized controlled parallel-group trials using polysomnography

1/ A: Celebrate the mild #flu season & take what we have learned this year to inform future behavior. Harmful germs are not going away. 🦠 Illness from bacteria & viruses that make us sick do not “strengthen” the #immune system & contribute to significant complications & death. Image
2/ The lack of infectious illnesses will not #weaken your #immunesystem. Public health measures to combat #COVID19 including social distancing, masks, & extra hand washing greatly reduced the incidence of some bad microbes that cause common infectious illnesses such as the flu.
3/ More than 15,000 US deaths attributed to the #flu were averted this year. Other common viruses, like rhinoviruses, did not decrease as consistently. #Bacteria & #viruses that cause illness will continue to exist.

Since I was a #graduate student, I’ve been struck by the variability in advisor-student relationships. While some are amazing, fruitful, and inspiring to watch, others are a downward spiral of awfulness and pain. 1/10 #gradschool #AcademicTwitter
Despite this, not only are #professors not taught how to be good mentors, but there is almost never any penalty or remediation for those with awful track records. 2/10 #mentorship
As a #stress and #socialsupport researcher, it was evident to me that advisor-advisee #relationships were likely having an effect on student stress, well-being and health. Surprisingly, no one had ever looked at this before. 3/10

Recapping @AmCollegeGastro's #VirtualGrandRounds on #IBS! Let's begin!
🟣IBS can be diagnosed with the Rome criteria
🟣Making a positive diagnosis is very helpful to patients, many of whom have gone years without a name for their symptoms
#IBS is heterogeneous, and so are its pathogenesis and pathophysiology.
🟣Identifying underlying factors in patients can help target treatment!

Important principles when diagnosing and treating #IBS.
