#exercise #Longevity #mortality #elderly
1. As little as 10 min/wk of aerobic exercises caused lesser deaths in elderly as compared to <10 min.
2. Benefits of aerobic activity were seen up to 300 min or more per week.
3. 32% lower deaths occurred with >300 min/wk of aerobic exercises as compared to 17% in 10-150 min grp
4. For muscle strengthening activity (MSA), the effect on death rate was U shaped. Deaths were higher with <2 and >6 sessions of MSA. Lowest deaths occurred in elderly doing 2-6 sessions of MSA.

I don’t know where to start with this profoundly ignorant selfish stupid tweet from @EstherMcVey1 who clearly has no compassion for the 100,000s of people who died or were damaged by #COVID19Pandemic - not least those unprotected in the #NHS due to lack of #PPE early on 1/
#masks do work. We reduced transmission in in centre #haemodialysis #patients radically once they wore masks door to door. 3% of all such #patients died in the first wave Esther & we were told off for giving them masks. 80+ #patients died at our centre alone. It was brutal 2/
Don’t take my word for it (though I’m way more expert than you @EstherMcVey1) - read this thread from @trishgreenhalgh who is a world expert on how #Covid19 is airborne & how #masks protect yourself AND others

And the please correct your dangerous ignorant tweet 3/

‘Although proportionately scarce, exercise may paradoxically trigger sudden cardiac arrest in individuals with #cardiovascular disease (CVD), particularly those who were previously sedentary or have advanced CVD.’
‘In parallel with the drive to promote #exercise in all individuals, physicians will be confronted with an increasing number of enquiries from individuals with established risk factors for coronary artery disease or established CVD about participation in exercise‘
‘Such consultations need to strike a balance between the multiple benefits of #exercise, the small risk of sudden death, and the patient’s goals for cardiorespiratory fitness & ongoing participation in relatively strenuous exercise following a #cardiovascular diagnosis.’

I truly adore my #elderly patients. I will go to the ends of the earth to help them.

Probably because they all remind me of my grandparents.

I lost mine by the time I was born and then in my late teens.

Today a 96-year old had suffered 4 days...
before he owned up to swallowing difficulty with his abx for his cellulitis.

He has private carers who gave him all the “well let’s try this” advice.

Today he felt he needed someone who knew a little more than the carers.
We spoke about his legs, they were getting better.
I changed his abx to liquid so he didn’t choke every time he tried to swallow.
We talked about his care, dressings, infection rate.

"It’s good I pay them well".

We talked about his food. "Yes, I have plenty my 2 daughters have taken care of that, and ..

World Economic Forum: "Lockdown is the world's biggest #psychological #experiment - & we will pay the price"

Apr 9 2020 "With some 2.6 billion people around the world in some kind of #lockdown, we are conducting arguably the largest psychological experiment ever"

"Unfortunately, we already have a good idea of its results. In late Feb 2020, right before EU countries mandated various forms of lockdowns, The Lancet published a review of 24 studies documenting the #psychological impact of quarantine."

"The findings offer a glimpse of what is brewing in hundreds of millions of households around the world...

people who are #quarantined are very likely to develop a wide range of symptoms of #psychological #stress and #disorder..."

1/5 Taking care of #elderly in times of #COVID19
These are trying times and our elderly are vulnerable. As the virus stays in air and the situation may continue like this for a few weeks, We need to take special care of the health and minimize infection of elderly.
I have jotted some simple common sense measures. Feel free to add more-
1) anyone 60+ to remain home bound and not go out for walks or neighbours houses
2) eceryone coming in the house must immediately wash up with Soap up to elbows face and legs or take bath. Sanitizers alone will not do. Put all clothes for washing in closed container or soak in soap water.
3) ensure that elders eat proper balanced meals everyday

@KamalaHarris has none of the necessary tools to preside over this nation. But #birtherism #challenges to her qualifications to be elected are #silly.
In the years preceding the 2016 election, because @tedcruz and I share many of the same views, I spent considerable time and energy evaluating the question of whether he could be, consistent with the Constitution, qualified to serve as President.
If you're wondering why that would even be in doubt, remember two things: I am a hide-bound constitutionalist; and, the Constitution provides the brief but precise requirements to be qualified to be president.
