Attending the school of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences research retreat #PAMRR2021 @Griffith_Uni

Thankfully it's made accessible via Teams for those of us unable to physically attend.

Might share some little insights from the presentations
Welcomed by the enthusiastic, encouraging, and humble @JennyAKEkberg and reminded to connect our research and funding with community and industry and engage in research cross-pollination. /1

Every speciality who is on (or wants to be) the ‘Mucor’ team- how many are willing to admit a patient with Mucor under their care and manage (even after surgical debridement). How many were admitting before and will admit after the pandemic? (1/n)#Mucormycosis #COVID19India
Some hypothetical consultations in the emergency before and after the pandemic:

#ENT : We will operate and transfer back

#Ophthalmology : Call us during the Surgey, we will coordinate with ENT in the OT, if needed

#Neurology : Continue Amphotericin (2/n)
#Endocrinology : Send us a consultation after admission under primary, we will control sugars

#Neurosurgery :No active neurosurgical intervention required

#Nephrology :We will do renal modification of Amphotericin

#Medicine/ #Infectiousdisease Admit under any of the above

1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged). japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/05/0…

A Legislature exists primarily to give checks and balances to other arms of government on behalf of the people.

We ask that @nassnigeria led by @femigbaja not to pass an #InfectiousDiseaseBill that could give individuals unchecked power over the rest of Society.
1. The #InfectiousDiseaseBill is supposed to give legal structure to public management of infectious disease outbreaks like the extant #COVID19 pandemic.

But what it does is make the head of the #NCDC and the Minister of Health powerful enough to be legal tools of Dictatorship.
2. Nigeria is supposedly a democracy and laws should be drafted with the intent to help build proper institutions that can be trusted and checked to treat people equally and fairly.

@nassnigeria should not enact laws that make gods out of men.

Although related to the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (#SARSCoV) & the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (#MERS), #COVID19 virus #SARSCoV2 shows some peculiar pathogenetic, epidemiological & clinical features which have not been completely understood to date.
#SARSCoV2 is more phylogenetically related to #SARSCoV than to #MERS. Only minor differences have been found in the #genome sequences of SARS-CoV-2 comparing with SARS-CoV. SARS-CoV-2 affinity for angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (#ACE2) receptor is higher than in SARS-CoV.

Wonderful new podcast by @CIDRAP, giving you an inside look at what my @PublicHealthUMN class w/Dr. Osterholm is like! Highly recommend the listen! Key points from ep 1 on #COVIDー19 #COVID19:
Thread 1/10
1: @mtosterholm debunks the seasonality premise. Typical in disease outbreaks to see peak infections after 6mo, this is time to understand transmission & take action. Nothing to do w/seasonality or temp, example of active MERS transmission in Arabian desert
2/10
2: Must consider long-term plans. Something between full lockdown vs no action. Find middle ground, minimize exposure in most vulnerable pop, allow transmission in less vulnerable pop b/c less severe outcomes, they become immune & continue to work in society/care for others

1/5 Beware of “back-of-the-envelope” ✉️ calculations that try to predict how many ppl will get sick or die from #COVID19 #coronavirusoutbreak , especially when they’re done by ppl who have little experience in #infectiousdisease modeling. The current situation is not that simple
2/5 Many different factors may affect the spread of the #SARSCOV2 #coronavirus . These include different assumptions about the virus characteristics (which are still emerging), how much the virus has already spread (which is unknown since widespread testing is not occurring yet),
3/5 ...how much ppl are mixing, washing their hands, & practicing other infection control measures, and what the government & other organizations are currently doing & will do in response. These all can significantly affect the spread of the #COVID19 #coronavirus

Summary of #coronavirus #COVID19 webinar by @JohnsHopkinsIH yesterday:
🔹 No country is fully prepared for an epidemic
🔹 during Ebola outbreak, 10% of tweets had bad info
🔹 Others were rumors about govt conspiracies
🔹 Others were chaos inducing tweets
1/8
🔹Propaganda blames various different populations, give rise to discrimination
🔹 There is NO CURE for #COVIDー19
🔹 There is no foolproof preventative
🔹 Surgical masks are NOT EFFECTIVE
🔹N95 #Masks are needed by medical staff. We need them to stay healthy. DON'T stockpile
2/8
🔹Community transmission - identify (testing), isolate (hospital), inform (community, health authorities)
🔹Long term care facilities have older, less heathy populations. DON'T visit them if sick. When visiting, use good #hand hygiene
🔹Facility workers should use masks
3/8

What's in a name?

1. Wash your hands often and/or use hand sanitizer more frequently.

2. Try not to touch your face... 🙈

3. Cough into your shirt or arm.

4. Stay home when you are sick.

5. WASH. YOUR. HANDS!

2. Current status is WIP with more features - and additional models - planned. Contributions much appreciated!

Planned features: github.com/seabbs/idmodel…
3. {#idmodelr} has an accompanying #shiny app that demos some of the functionality and can be used as a standalone tool for exploring infectious disease models.

I listen to ~90 #Podcasts on a (semi) regular basis. Let me give you a rundown of ALL of them and why you should listen to some amazing #FOAMed, especially for all the new #EmergencyMedicine interns. #FOAMed #MedEd #medtwitter
First of all, you need a good podcast app. I absolutely love Downcast. Great app, gives you more control over playback, downloading, and allows you to categorize your podcasts into playlists (picture 2). This is where you get to customize your #FOAMed experience! #medtwitter
In no particular order,

- Anesthesia and Critical Care Reviews and Commentary (ACCRAC). Great insight into Crit Care from an anesthesia perspective. Coming from EM, this is great to listen to- much different from my day-to-day! #FOAMed #FOAMcc #CriticalCare
