Starting a series on clinical Pearls I am gathering in #COVID19 patients based on experiences of many experts

Will add as we go along

Feel free to add your own observations/experiences

#covidclinicalpearls /1
Anosmia is likely the most specific #COVID19 related symptom
30% of patients have anosmia as their 1st symptom
#covidclinicalpearls /2
Around 90% of patients have fever.
50% maybe afebrile at the time of presentation
Fever tends to be very resistant to routine measures in hospitalized patients
There is no consensus that NSAIDs are to be avoided in #COVID2019 patients

But for every other country on earth, the #UnitedStates is the absolute worst country on earth.
We cherish #liberty but not enough to hang politicians for their every #encroachment on it.

(Remember, according to #ThomasJefferson (and all the natural rights philosophers who preceded him), the purpose of the government is to #securetheseliberties among men.)

#Jesus #JesusLovesYou
#God sacrificed his #Son #Jesus on the #cross as payment for the #sins of the world. #JesusChrist did this for you because He loves you. He does not want you to go to #Hell. To be saved, ask forgiveness of your sins & ask God to be your Lord (open thread)
#Jesus #Christ shed his #blood for you, so that you do not have to bleed simply to enter the #Kingdom of #Heaven. The debt is already paid. You are worth a lot, even if you feel worthless. You were worth dying for!
Stay away from #sin so you do not backslide & fall away from God. You cannot sin on purpose thinking you will have a chance to ask forgiveness later, it doesn't work that way. You must be seriously ready for a change in your life. Follow God in all you do, give him ALL the glory

I #linger dockside, watching laborers load ideas into the ship’s hold for their dangerous trip across the astral sea.

Waiting for my opportunity to stow away and sail into the starry night.

#vss365
I crawl up the rope from the far pier to the ship’s deck and climb over the rail. Glance around quickly, then duck down the stairs to the hold.

My eyes adjust and I see dreams stored neatly for their trip across the sea of night. I’m seeking #haven from nightmares.

#vss365
Hidden in the hold, I feel the ship move as the ropes let loose. The mystical tide pulls us out to sea. We rise into the night.

The ship begins to pitch and roll, as a #wild psychic storm passes over. The hatch slams shut above me.

#MECFS citizen science: What are the answers to these 6 important questions on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis???

The insightful questions below come from this nice @diagnostic_mdpi review

#mdpidiagnostics #pwME #chronicillness #SickNotWeak #MyalgicE
mdpi.com/2075-4418/9/3/…
1. Is there a genetic susceptibility which leaves some individuals vulnerable to #MECFS after exposure to a virus, bacteria or toxic chemical?

#pwME #chronicillness #SickNotWeak #MyalgicE @diagnostic_mdpi #medtwitter #genetic
2. What is the key initial physiological trigger causing the dramatic downward spiral in health leading to #MECFS?

#Philological detail: Mrs. O'Doherty keeps perpetuating a wrong attribution of 'hottest part of hell reserved for those who stay silent at times of moral crisis.' (or the like). , 39m46s is already the 3rd time I heard her say that. This is at best a
..
.. loose paraphrase of a more complex passage in Dante's #Inferno. Specifically, the "hottest" doesn't have any textual basis! To the contrary, Dante describes an eerily forlorn (rather cold) place OUTSIDE #hell, reserved for such souls: cf.
For your
..
.. convenience, I summarize the #punishment that #Dante imagines fence-sitting souls will receive after death:
• they are kept in a kind of antechamber of #hell, together with those #angels who were neither faithful nor rebellious to god
• they utter sounds of lamentation

Wow! 👉 This team found that 84% of patients w/ acute ischemic #stroke had bacterial DNA in their blood clots removed from the #brain ☝️oral #pathogen viridans streptococci (already connected to #endocarditis) was the most common organism identified in the #blood clots
Here is the paper itself which states 👉 “We found DNA of viridans streptococci in most aspired thrombi of patients with acute ischemic #stroke, which suggests that oral bacteria may have a role in the cause of #cerebrovascular disease.”
Also 👉 “Repeated transient bacteremia, caused by poor dental care or bacterial #infections, may trap pathogens in atherosclerotic plaques and promote rupture of the plaques”: ahajournals.org/doi/10.1161/JA…

1/ It's all scaremongering isn't it about #brexit and #drugs? Stockpiling, price hikes, and, as @MattHancock warns, dead patients. Well, here's the lowdown and it's not pretty. With or without #softbrexit.
A thread
2/ Patients with long-term conditions such as #diabetes, #asthma or #schizophrenia, #blood pressure, #heart problems or #cancer down to daily medicines for #rashes and skin problems, take for granted that they will be able to get their medicines when they need them.
3/ According the UK's Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
Committee publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201719/cm…
73 per cent of pharmaceutical imports in the UK come from the EU. This equates to around 37 million packets of medicines every month from the EU worth £18.3 billion.

Incredibly important hypothesis piece published today 👉 “Proposed here is a theory that #microorganisms from within the #brain and elsewhere in the body contribute to the long-term #neurological deterioration characteristic of traumatic brain injury”: sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
From paper 👉 1. “First, since the normal human #brain is not sterile, but is host to a variety of microorganisms, blows to the #skull may dislodge them from their accustomed local environments, in which they have been living in quiet equilibrium with neighboring #brain cells”
2. “2nd, upon impact commensal #microbes already resident on surfaces of the nose, mouth + eyes, and potentially harmful organisms from the environment, may gain access to the #brain through the distal ends of the olfactory + optic #nerves or even a disrupted blood-brain barrier”

Holobiont activity in chronic disease 👉In this analysis of #cardiovascular-disease-related proteins in human blood☝️genetics contributed most to immune-related proteins, while #microbiome contributed most to proteins tied to metabolism + intestinal health:nature.com/articles/s4158…
Worth noting that the team largely assumed that the proteins identified in #blood were derived from the gut microbiome 👉 but some #proteins could have been derived from organisms in the blood itself and/or organisms persisting in #microbiome communities outside the gut
Overall takeaway 👉 “This study provides important evidence for a joint genetic and microbial effect in #cardiovascular disease and provides directions for future applications in personalized medicine”

Yes 👉 And when #bacteria enter the #blood, they are even more likely to infect + persist inside the cells of the immune system 👉 There, the proteins + #metabolites they create can directly modulate the activity of human genes that regulate #metabolism + immune response etc
Also a growing # of organisms can persist in the #blood itself 👉 This @StanfordMed study found 1000s of never before discovered bacteria + #viruses in the blood of immunocompromised patients (99% of microbes identified were previously unknown to science): pnas.org/content/early/…
The team contends these newly discovered microbes 👉 “have potential consequences for human #health. They may prove to be the cause of acute or #chronic diseases that, to date, have unknown etiology”☝️This technology has not yet been used to study blood in conditions like #ME/CFS

Today is #WorldKidneyDay, so here is a thread about living on #dialysis & #OrganDonation. My name is Belinda Otas. I’m #African. I’m #Nigerian. I'm #Benin. I’m #British & I’m #Black. Beyond the nationalities or passports with my name, I also believe in our shared humanity.
I was 16, when I was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure (ESRF.) I had no idea what was happening to me because at the time, it made no sense. However, I remember the pain of that period like noonday. I lived on dialysis until i was 22. #dialysis #OrganDonation #renalhealth
It took over my teenage years. I don’t remember having much of a life as a teenager because dialysis was 3x a week & every session was 4hrs. Add the time it takes to recover from being exhausted by the process, my day was pretty much over. #dialysis #OrganDonation #renalhealth

Some thoughts on the social commentary in 2015's TAG (A Thread)

I first heard about Tag in May 2018. I instantly wanted to see it. I found the first five minutes or so on @Youtube and when the occupants of the 2 buses died, I was hooked. But I couldn't find it anywhere to watch.
Thursday, a friend of mine let me know Tag had come to @netflix and I watched it as soon as I could, which was yesterday. And I absolutely loved it. I loved the #horror of the first two acts. The excessive #gore and #blood. I loved how over the top some scenes were.
When the third act came and things came together, at the time I was blown away. I adored the craziness and how it explained some of the stuff that felt too out of place before. I loved how it went from an all female cast to a mostly male cast and why. Then it happened...
