Projet #SMART8000

➡️ #IndoPacific2022 : @Navantia_AU a présenté - pour la 1ière fois - la SMART 8000 (#NS8K ?) de 120 mètres de long, 8 à 10 000 t et dont presque toutes les antennes sont intégrées ou conformes à la coque (photographies 1, 2 : RT @sweeneygov).
➡️ La SMART 4000 (#NS4K) avait été présentée (3), pour la 1ière fois, au salon #FEINDEF 2021. 2 000 à 2 500 tonnes de déplacement pour environ 120 mètres, 25 nœuds avec Voith Linear Jets (VLJ), équipage de 70 marins. La proposition industrielle DefendSeas des
Chantiers de l'Atlantique présentait la même architecture modulaire sur l'arrière et sous la plage hélicoptères.

➡️ Il est à se demander si les SMART 4000 (#NS4K) et SMART 8000 (#NS8K) sont la continuation du Proyecto #F2M2 (Navantia : photographie (4) que le

1/ Welcome back to 12-Lead Thursday #MedTwitter !

Let’s get the juices flowing with an EKG! What are the major abnormalities?
2/ Yes, those are inferolateral ST elevations!

And notice the underlying rhythm of atrial fibrillation
3/ Continuing our patient story, the patient was taken emergently to the cath lab where angiography revealed...

Normal coronary arteries!

1/9 #Morningreport recently @SinaiBmoreIMRes
by M. Thomas featured a middle aged pt presenting with sudden collapse whilst getting ready in the morning.
No prodromal episodes
#DDx ?
#MedTwitter #MedStudentTwitter #FOAMed
For acute collapse, this would need to be defined along the spectrum of:
Pre-syncope-> Syncope-> Near SCD-> SCD.
A quick review of medications show multiple medications that can present with this condition:

1/#Morningreport @SinaiBmoreIMRes
by @NasirAlhamdan featured a presentation of progressive fatigue and tachypnea X 2 months. This presentation opens up a significant number of #DDx's !
#MedTwitter #MedStudentTwitter Image
2/Other findings were:
-unexplained weight loss.,
- Tachypnea & mild SOB
- Intermittent chronic diarrhea, Intermittent small amount of bright blood per rectum
- Bruises on thighs
Now the DDx shift from the respiratory system to maybe an overlap of a hematologic etiology
3/A quick overview of our thoughts were: Image

1/#Morningreport @SinaiBmoreIMRes
featured a young patient presenting with abdominal pain X 2 weeks with a serum K=2.8.
There was also increased urinary frequency
some weakness and fatigue during the past 2 weeks
#DDX #MedTwitter #medstudents #FOAMed
2/The DDX for Hypokalemia requires consideration of a 3 pronged approach: 1)Decreased intake 2)Renal and GI losses and 3) IC shifts. Image
3/For the workup: Spot urine potassium and 24 hour urinary Potassium suggested urinary K wasting.
[UK] high (>40 mEq/L) =renal K loss
TTKG of 9 was concerning for renal potassium wasting
In hypokalemia (K⁺ <3.5 mEq/L), the TTKG > 7 suggests renal K wasting. Image

1/6 @k_vaishnani discussed Cement PE recently and it reminded me of a patient I had with N/V due to a procedural complication that I was also not familiar with. A great learning point is to try to associate the procedure to the complication whilst trying to entertain other #DDX Image
2/6 The patient presented with a past medical history of DM and paroxysmal AFib s/p Ablation two days prior to admission.
One day after the procedure, she developed generalized progressive abdominal discomfort (+) persistent n/v, exacerbated with food intake.
3/6 The abdominal pain was diffuse and intensity was 6/10 Intermittent and relieved by vomiting.
It was associated with palpitations and diaphoresis. The team ran through causes of abd pain via @CPSolvers schema. Her labs showed met. alkalosis /dehydration from excessive vomiting Image

1/ A 46-year-old man with a history of #malaria presented to the @JohnsHopkinsDOM on 8/12/1923 with

-- 3 years of generalized arthralgia
-- intermittent joint swelling

-- 40 lbs weight loss

@CPSolvers @DxRxEdu #medtwitter #MedEd
2/ Exam

-- synovitis of the 2nd and 3rd MCPs

-- diffuse joint tenderness

-- lymphadenopathy

-- pyorrhea alveolaris* of the few remaining teeth.

What do you want to do next? What's your #DDX?

Remember: Sir William Osler died in 1919, so it's all you...
So far, we have #tuberculosis on the differential. “Consumption” or “#phthisis”, wasting away, as #Tb was often referred to, certainly could explain this patients weight loss and adenopathy.

But does it explain the rest?

Last week we had our traditional lecture on Dizziness by our amazing PD, Dr @AndrewGutwein!...
As you are probably very aware, this is a very common complain!, and can have many subtleties.

#JacobiIM #JacobiNoonConference #medtwitter #FOAMed #DDx @CPSolvers @DxRxEdu
Dizziness is VERY relative...
Patient can describe it as spinning, lightheaded, "blacking out", but sometimes, it is just "Dizziness".

Newman et al evaluated the overlap of dizziness categories based on symptoms. (May Clin Proceedings, 2007-11-01,Vol 82,1)

But if it is just dizzy...DON'T STOP AT "JUST DIZZY"...try to really understand what is it!....As Dr Gutwein, says, "Dizziness is Meaningless".
A good way to try to understand what the patient means is:
