So remember when I wrote this thread in an effort to explain why, coming from a mechanism of action perspective, #hydroxychloroquine (#HCQ) for #COVID-19 should be administered with #zinc?
2/ Well, this NYU preprint explains how the team performed a retrospective observational study to compare #hospital outcomes among patients who received #HCQ + azithromycin + #zinc vs. HCQ + azithromycin alone for COVID-19: medrxiv.org/content/10.110…
3/ They found that addition of #zinc sulfate to the #drug combo increased the frequency of patients being discharged home, and decreased the need for #ventilation, admission to the #ICU, and mortality or transfer to hospice for patients who were never admitted to the ICU.

#Thread: Thoughts on #clinical #guidelines for doctors: This one is for you, @EPSTamilNadu, because l've followed TN response closely . No harm in tagging @OfficeOfOPS (who won't do anything) and @mkstalin, who is asking #DMK cadre to indiscriminately distribute masks #Corona
1) From what I know, no clinical guideline has gone out from the Health department. Why? Is Tamil Nadu on the same planet as Kerala?
2) Many doctors have no idea of any standard protocol in place. They are treating as they know, from experience. This is Day 3 after the closures
3) So what are the symptoms here? Does a doctor go by what he/she saw on TV? Or what WHO has put out based on some patient in China or Europe?
4) what happens if 50 ICU beds get filled up with Covid19 patients? Where will the remaining go?

In my opinion the single best parameter that predicts longevity and improves #clinical outcome is #cardiopulmonary #fitness. #VO2Max is an easy way to quantify this. Having a ⬆️ #VO2max & a ⬆️#lactatethreshold could be the difference between life & death during #CoronaOutbreak
It could be the difference between requiring venilatory support and no ventilatory support during this #coronavirus #pandemic. So please who are #QuarantineAndChill please keep your physical activity up! Do some #tabata #HIIT
Lactate inflection point (LIP), is the exercise intensity at which the blood concentration of #lactate begins to increase exponentially. It can be improved significantly with regular exercise. #vo2max is the max rate of O2 consumption measured during incremental exercise.

There's been a story in a UK tabloid (that I won't name), and @BBCRadio4 of all places; that #rocket #salad causes #cancer due to high levels of #nitrates in the leaves. Here's my take, and what's wrong with the thinking behind it.

A thread.

1/12
It's true, #rocket #leaves are hyperaccumulators of #nitrates ; this isn't anything new. It's been known for a long time. Other crops with high nitrate content include #spinach and #watercress

2/12
Nitrate content varies according to where the #crop is grown, and is closely tied to the soil #plants are grown in, and the amount of #light they receive. Rocket leaves grown in #winter have higher nitrate content than those grown in #summer

1/Tweetorial! Exploring a novel conceptual model of the clinical Learning & Working Environment (LWE) #MedEd
Do you wonder what the Clinical LWE *is*? Given the energy we put into making the LWE better, why is this still such a confusing question?
So - can you define the LWE?
2/In July 2017 an @AAIMOnline collaborative was tasked to recommend strategies for LWE improvement. In early discussions we realized we had no shared mental model of the LWE w/ which to systematically approach improvement. 2yrs later we are publishing a conceptual model.
3/Let’s start w/ the model & then explain its development:The LWE is the nesting of personal, relational, curricular, & structural domains as traversed by multiple learners, centered on the needs of individual or populations of patients, & influenced by the sociocultural context

Themes from the opening and keynote speaker at @UBSSW Poverty is a Human Rights Issue: 4th Annual Symposium:
- Poverty is nuanced
- It is based on the history of the United States and US Social Policy
- Many “good” policies to integrate individuals have been create but..
#PHRI
Have been created so marginalized communities can be integrated because profits have been able to be made off of their exploitation (ie. Predatory Lending allows credit, for profit education allows debt and worthless degrees) #PHRI #MacroSW #Policy
- There are many two tiered systems (4% loan rates vs 11% loan rates).
- Military budget
- If we have Medicare for all, how do we ensure a second system for the wealthy doesn’t get created so we don’t wind up back where we started? #MacroSW #PHRI

Except you don't have the consciousness to do that- only what you've, perhaps, been programmed to register, process, or maybe transmit/emit. Here in #Ireland on the other hand there are 💚s everywhere hoping to #repealthe8th #LISTENUP #Focus on #Caring #Now to ensure #legislation

3/ Think you want to **Repeal the 8️⃣️th** 💚s? This is a sane quote from here, Ireland, today:"The dissolution of the Dáil would see the simultaneous dissolution of all Oireachtas Committees. ---
