So #IPL match in #Delhi today amidst the #corona crisis. They say its a #stress buster. For once imagine if there was no ipl, would people who are already stressed, would they be more stressed over their friend/family/acquaintance getting ill/hospitalized. 1/7
Maybe, for some who seek a stress reliever. It gives them something to do, but so do these #OTT s.
I am pro #cricket and all for people prospering but never at the cost of other #people (I am sure it's not intended). Sadly, that's what ipl seems like right now..2/7
atleast in today's time when there is already a dearth of facilities and resources, we see it being diverted somewhere avoidable. There's a chill of #sadness in the air and a #curfew to curb the spread. As much as we try to focus on the #positives and the recoveries, .. 3/7

The only feelings to center on are those of black community
Wrong use of this quote during the week of #DerekChauvinTrial

Some people “feel” things if a white male faces accountability
Amy Cooper’s feelings: call cops
Racism & racism lite has always focused on “feelings” #BLM
When @ayshakhoury or @uche_blackstock were authentic in their feelings: ended careers

Black female physician #DrSusanMoore having “knowledge” or a “voice”
while DYING
made others
*feel* “intimidated.”

This is part of a known pattern for WOC
@COCoQC
#BLM #BlackintheIvory
This is a repeating pattern of “feelings” used against tellers of uncomfortable truths that #MLK described in the letter from the Birmingham jail.

Seeking order > justice or overpolicing are all to protect only certain “feelings” of “security” while those like #adamtoledo die.

#MedTwitter influencers show hypocrisy (advice vs actions on masks). Agree:

“unpleasant comments are ‘the nature of social media’ and holding public figures accountable is critical when they are setting an example for their ‘millions of followers.’”

#tweetiatrician have even gotten death threats for pro-#vaccine #SciComm - most #MedTwitter influencers did nothing to protect vs these personal safety threats to #clinician & #doctor colleagues

@ZDoggMD & @DrToddWo did step up to help @NicoleB_MD

medpagetoday.com/special-report…
Compare above to Dr. Mike:
when medical influencers are “caught”

adds to public perception:
“doctors cannot be trusted”

“Another fan posted on Reddit: ‘I know it's your life and you can do what you want, but you have chosen to be a public figure.’”

When the #ACA was implemented: there was no mandate established to ensure that #emr #ehr electronic medical records could communicate and physicians could obtain medical records from #doctors caring for the same patients at other offices or hospitals. 1/
What ensued was that the government forces practices to an incur most of the cost of buying expensive electronic medical records and forced them to use them or incur more financial penalties. In retrospect those who did not use #emr and #ehr benefitted 2/
It became impossible to afford an #emr #ehr in a private practice
costs include:
1. Computers

6. Cost of repairs

I asked a child in #kindergarten if he was allowed to talk during lunch.
A: no
Q: What do you do while you eat lunch?
A: Watch a show
Q: Can you remove your #mask other than to eat?
A: no
Q? During recess/play?
A: no
Q; Have you ever seen your #teacher's face?
A: no

The tearful mother, who had no idea, told me that this explains why her 5-yr-old does not eat most of his lunch. He sometimes can not open the containers, boxes, etc. - & is not to ask for help. As well, he has reiterated that he has to eat quickly & has no time to eat his food. ImageImageImageImage

My latest for @TPostMillennial

🩺 Joe Biden's new EO denies patients in pain the medication they need💊

thepostmillennial.com/joe-bidens-new… #chrnoicpain #drugs #biden #politics #health #medicine #MedTwitter #healthcare #Budget2021 #environment #OTD #quoteoftheday #SuperBowl
The genie for the far-left🧞‍♂️
otherwise known as President Biden

leads the executive gov agencies & the DEA to gamify pain medicine in order to "stop" the opioid crisis

Making it harder for your family to get help when you need it

#drugs #health #journalism #politics @JoeBiden
Biden allows DEA & others to radically expand unconstitutional powers & eliminate patient privacy like HIPPA

Making it so there is nothing in health
gov won't know about U🕵️

The RED Talk on The #Business and #Science of #Healthcare is now live! Still time to join us at ruralpolicy.group/red.
The next big issue facing NICE & #healthcare will be our relationship with the European Medicines Agency after Brexit; it will impact our #medicines research, trials. We could see a dramatic reduction in research, access to medicine and disrupt the supply of meds - @steve_mccabe
The British #taxpayer makes a phenomenal contribution to the development of new #drugs - but these can then be prohibitively priced. We need to improve access to new medicines and there is a question around cost, access and funding. @steve_mccabe

The only way to solve #surprisemedicalbills is with a #fairIDR. But we need to get to the crux of this #SMB issue.

appropriate amount for that non-contracted service OR whether the IDR will be rigged and so unfair that the insurer will always win the dispute.

Many IDR proposals, sadly, are unfair, pointing the IDR to primarily consider the contracted rates #health insurers make up...

#Poly_Cystic_Ovary_Syndrome PCOS

PCOS is a HORMONAL DISORDER that affects Women of REPRODUCTIVE AGE (16 - 45 years of age).

1 out of 10 (10%) of ladies are diagnosed with PCOS. 🚺

#PCOS affects woman’s hormonal levels thereby AFFECTING the OVARIES.

A Thread 👇 Image
In HEALTHY WOMEN, the ovaries produce a very small amount of MALE HORMONES called as ANDROGEN.

But In PCOS, due to #INSULIN_RESISTANCE, the ovaries produce EXCESSIVE androgens, RATHER than the female hormones (such as Estrogen & Progesterone). ❌

These Excess #ANDROGENS are
responsible for CAUSING lots of body changes SUCH as : Facial Hair (beards) & No or IRREGULAR menstrual flow.

POLY-CYSTIC means ‘Many Cysts.’

In PCoS, Many CYSTS (Small Fluid-filled Sacs containing IMMATURE EGGS) develops inside the Ovaries.

The EGGS are NEVER fully grown to

Is #govt doing #Enough for #Covid_19?
There is huge debate about govt not doing enough or hiding true data. Majority of people look at the data & facts published by govt with skepticism. The blame is , data are tailored to portray the shining picture in #Covid_19 management. 1/
I,as one, neither completely deny the accusation nor completely agree to it. I shall try to touch upon if actually govt doing enough or not in another space but let us first ask ourselves.
ARE WE DOING ENOUGH ??? Let’s ask few questions to ourselves before we question anyone!
1) are we taking all precautions ?? Do we wear masks as much time as possible ? How many times we put the mask down without reason ? Are we using right mask?

Apakah Kdrama Bisa Memotivasi Kita Belajar?

Uisa Yohan: Motivasi belajar dan sedikit review

Sebuah utas.

#kdrama #medical #doctor #hospital #learn #study #academicpaper #academicjournal

Catatan. Mengandung spoiler.
Perkenankan saya untuk menggunakan sebuah atsar dalam mengawali bahasan utas ini. "Undzur ma qala wala tandzur man qala". Lihat kata-kata/pesannya, bukan siapa yang menyampaikan.
Saya memahami atsar tsb dua makna. Pertama, mengenai bias. Kalau tidak salah atsar ini bekenaan dengan masalah kebohongan/kredibilitas. Jadi kamu perlu lihat isi pesannya bukan langsung percaya sama yang mengatakan.

1/ Q: If someone in my household tests positive for #COVID19, how can I best care for them and keep the rest of my household #safe?

A: This thread breaks down steps you can take to care for your sick family member and protect the rest of your household:
2/ If someone in your household develops symptoms of #COVID__19 (Here is a symptom list: cdc.gov/coronavirus/20…), or suspects they have been exposed to #COVID, they should contact their health care provider to get a test or, if available, visit a community testing site.
3/ If COVID-19 is suspected based on symptoms or verified with a positive test, start by:

👤 Isolating the ill member. Designate a separate bedroom, and if available, a separate bathroom to them. If only one bathroom is available, open a window/use a fan and clean after use.

Thinking of taking your loved one out of #longtermcare during the #covid19 ? There is *no easy answer*. But here are few things to think about:
1) Do they need to be transferred (bed / toilet / shower) and how would you do that?
2) Do they need a Hoyer lift? (thread continues)
3) Do you have the medications and expertise to provide the medical care?
4) Are you in danger of infecting other vulnerable members of your household?
5) How will you support them if they have dementia?
6) Do you have knowledge on how to support #incontinence & the products?
7) Who will you call if they get sicker either with #Covid19 or their underlying #health issues?
8) are they going to lose their #placement in the #nursinghome (in Ontario - the answer would be yes)
9) who else in your home needs care?
10) how will you support #socialengagement?

Did You Know?

#WHO D-G Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is actually an Ethiopian politician and not even a #Doctor?

& He is leading the Global #FightAgainstCoronavirus.

What started as a small epidemic in Wuhan converted into a #pandemic.

#WHOLiedPeopleDied #CoronaVillains WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is not even a doctor by profession
As Health Minister of Ethiopia, #TedrosAdhanomGhebreyesus was accused of covering up Cholera Outbreaks in 2006, 2009 & 2011, to avoid lab testing for cholera.
An excerpt from #NewYorkTimes
nytimes.com/2017/05/13/hea…

#WHOLiedPeopleDied #Covid19 #Coronaindia
Same happened with #ChineseWuhanVirus. Initially #WHO said it’s not contagious between humans, refused to recommend quarantine, refused to recommend travel advisories or any other measures till the #WuhanEpidemic converted to a #GlobalPandemic.

THREAD: I was sad, but now I am angry. As clinicians, we have the enormous privilege of attending to people when they are at their worst. Death, loss, disease, events that alter the trajectory of people’s lives, and keep working, because there is always work to be done. 1/
We ease the suffering of #humanity. That is what we have been called to do. And I feel like part of that is that we often censor ourselves to protect non-medical people. But how about we start to share a tiny glimpse of our reality? (Medical terminology is in quotes) 2/
While we know that 80% of cases are mild, do you know how people die after being infected with “Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome #Coronavirus 2” (#SARS_COV_2)?

Rather, do you know how the majority of people who are deceased as a result of the new Coronavirus, perished? 3/
