We are offering #phone 📱& #video 💻consults so decide before calling which doctor you wish to see and how you would like to speak to them. We are doing some face to face consults, these are solely at your doctors discretion and we can arrange one after speaking to you 2/7
If you are going for a video 💻 consult, please ensure you have a good internet connection, a working video and microphone 🎙️ (these are usually 'built in' to devices) A discreet place to talk from also helps! Video consults can be done on most phones, tablets & laptops 3/7

A brief summary of the decision algorithm to hospitalise a patient with suspect #COVID19 in Italy. Relevant to @trishgreenhalgh guidelines for #GP remote assessment

A thread
1/n
Patients in respiratory distress affected with #COVID19 arrive with up to severe #hypoxia but usually normocapnia. Therefore no respiratory distress nor hyperventilation

2/n
Therefore Emergency doctors decide to admit otherwise healthy patients with oxygen saturation below 94% (young patient) or 90-94% (older patient or with chronic lung conditions). For those not falling below the threshold they perform the 40 steps test

1) Today at 11:19 am AWST, IHMS's GP during my appointment told me that he won't be providing me with any Medical Care, Assistance, & Medical Treatment & that:
"That's the end of our conversation" the #IHMS doctor said.
So I continue to be without my Medication & in Extreme Pain.
2) WA Health & Disabilities don't have Jurisdiction to investigate #IHMS,& @CwealthOmb can only ask questions & the department can't take years to answer,in the meantime you remain untreated & without medication.
This is a a very calculated vicious move to #Torture me by the law
3) At 01:31 pm AWST I met two ABF officers to convey my grievence regarding IHMS. #ABF advised me there is not much they can do to sway #IHMS.
But to their credit they said I can Oraganize & Pay for my own Doctor to treat me, & they will issue a letter to that effect to me & IHMS

So @getadrip deleted their tweet about IV and IM medicines for £50, after I asked about regulatory issues.
Emails from "Richard" @getadrip are bizarre.
"We are not currently CQC registered as we do not fall within their scope and have not been informed otherwise by the CQC."
Again from @getadrip :

"All our products are MHRA approved and are prescribed by GMC Registered Doctors or Advanced Nurse Practitioners, all of whom have 10 - 25 years experience in the NHS individually.
"
And:
"There are many Vitamin Drip providers within the UK, some of which have been operating for up to 10 years, they are also not regulated by the CQC ..., please see an example below:
cqc.org.uk/location/1-353…
"

10-20% of pregnant women experience depression and/or anxiety during the perinatal period. (peri=around, natal=birth). #MaternalMHMatters #PerinatalMentalHealth
Maternal prenatal stress has been associated with a range of negative outcomes in the baby.. such as obstetric outcomes (e.g. preterm birth, low birth weight), emotional outcomes, behavioural outcomes and cognitive outcomes. Review: sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
The biological basis for this is still poorly understood. More research is needed in this area to help identify early markers (as well as protective factors) and to help inform early interventions to ensure the best possible outcome for the mother and the baby.

@fernandokrammer depois do silêncio adotado ao observar que NÃO foi nada inteligente apoiar o #Golpe feito na democracia #brasileira, é incoerente se acovardar diante as manobras direcionadas nos diferentes sistemas
#justiçabrasileiraPartidária 😱
