A summary thread from the great Emergency Medicine Australasia issue I finally read on the plane; @EMAJournal #foamed

Thom study in EMA: patients with unstable cervical #fractures can sit (29%), walk (63%), lack midline tenderness (27%), and have delayed presentation (20%).
@EMAJournal #emergencymedicine

surf injuries were mostly lower c-spine

NEXUS underperformed compared to Canadian C-spine.

#drowning and cervical CTs are not inextricably linked: don't automatically image unless signs of axial loading/very specific concerns
@EMAJournal [my $0.02 on immobilising (virtually) anyone prehospitally: cervical immobilisation is a myth: collars don't actually immobilise, and 'immobilisation' doesn't actually prevent neurological *does* however harm (eg aspiration and other harms)]

Most parents don't know that the leading cause of death for children ages 1-4 is drowning.

And it's entirely preventable.

Infants can learn to float and swim. >

#RIPArrayah #YourBabyCanSwim…
Children can be taught to hold their breath, turn on their backs and float to safety, even fully clothed.

Water wings and life jackets harm infants by giving them a false sense of security.
Fences and alarms aren't foolproof.

#Thread #COVIDSecondWave
Dire warning from Dr Darayus Gazder, a young doctor in #Karachi: Second wave is very strong, patients are highly critical and sick. We have a waiting list of over 10 per bed. People are dying/suffering alone w no one to say goodbye!
It's painful
Some deteriorate within minutes. Others who survive COVID have permanent severe #lung damage, can't eat a single meal w/o high flow oxygen, later die painfully as if #drowning once respiratory/cardiac muscles can't compensate as oxygen is depleted.
- Dr Darayus Gazher 2/n
Educated people should take this seriously. But they are Instead throwing parties, weddings, going to sports events, malls, shopping, eating out with no precautions, even mocking the disease. This selfish behaviour must end as it endangers ALL age groups
- Dr Darayus Gazder 3/n

"Se vuoi scrivere qualcosa senza tempo, scrivi di razzismo, conflitti politici e divisioni culturali. Non sembra che abbiamo risolto nulla di quella merda.” Parola di Jim, batterista, durante il tour per i 25 anni del disco più famoso della band.
1/7 Image
La band di anni ne ha più di 30, anche se Jim è arrivato un po’ dopo. Si sono formati a Columbia, in un bagno in comune nei dormitori della University of South Carolina. Mark è una matricola e sente qualcuno, sotto la doccia, cantare magnificamente una canzone di Billy Joel Image

E’ Darius, e insieme mettono su una band con l’aggiunta di un bassista, Dean, e un batterista, che poi lascerà per far posto a Jim.

Una college band a tutti gli effetti, tanto che anche il nome lo prendono dai soprannomi di due amici: Hootie & the Blowfish. Image

THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4388: Donald Trump regarding Drowned Father and Daughter in the Rio Grande • #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #DonaldTrump #Drowning #RioGrade #Immigration
1/ Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his toddler daughter, Angie Valeri drowned last week while trying to cross the Rio Grande River. Óscar and his family had journeyed from El Salvador - escaping violence and seeking refuge.
2/ A photograph of Óscar & Valeria, side-by-side, her arm draped around his neck tragically humanizes the Central American diaspora. It reminds many of an iconic image of Aylan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian refugee, whose body washed up on Turkey's shores, near Bodrum, in 2015.

Welcome to day 14 #30days30waysUK. Being safe around water inc flooding prevents accidents and #drowning. Today we're joined by @RLSSUK and many others talking about how to #StaySafe and be better prepared
↙️open 'Show thread' Image
Did you know that in the UK around 400 people needlessly drown every year and thousands more suffer injury, some life changing, because of #neardrowning experiences? One person dies every 20 hours yet this could easily be prevented. Find out more
Other excellent info is from organisations e.g. the @RNLI #RespectTheWater
