1/ Proud to be a part of this hot-off-the-press #stewardship study examining time to blood culture positivity by pathogen and primary service. A joint effort by scientists at @ChildrensColo @CUMedicalSchool @CUAnschutz. Check it out #IDTwitter ! Summary 🧵
pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34407980/#:~:t…
2/ Some background:
* Historically, infants and children are given antibiotics until blood cultures are negative at 48-72 hours.
*Empirically treating is essential for children with bacteremia, but waiting for this negative BC period may be unnecessary. pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25567785/
3/ Why we did this study:
* Understanding the time it takes for blood cultures to become positive (with respect to certain organisms and subspecialties) can help shorten overall antimicrobial duration.

*Shortening duration= fewer adverse events, less resistance, shorter stays

Morrison is our statue of unempathic neoliberalism - erected by evangelical and corporate Australia to celebrate their victory over compassion, equality and secular humanism.
Neoliberalism in Australia has been implemented by both the major parties. The LNP-LAB Duopoly have used the strategy of Graduation over the last 40 years.
To make an unacceptable measure accepted, you only need to apply it gradually, to dropper, for consecutive years. This is how radically new socioeconomic conditions (neoliberism) were imposed during the decades of the 80 s and 90’s......

The position today ..
Not enough #Vaccines ordered to give everyone in the #UK the 1st dose ...& #Aged people who have had the 1st dose will not get a 2nd dose within the correct timeframe ..
if ever ?
Even worse ?
After have the 1st jab ...& No 2nd jab ?
This virus can mutate meantime into a completely new virus which no present #vaccine can recognise ...

Do You #TRUST the #Tories ?
#Lab rats ? #Cull the #Aged ? #Eugenics at work ?

I have a few things to say this morning. A small but mighty 🧵.
First , I can't say thank you enough to @KatherineJWu for writing this amazing piece highlighting the crucial work of clinical laboratory scientists/medical technologists. Please read it: nytimes.com/2020/12/03/hea…
The article captures a piece of the talent, expertise, and dedication of these healthcare workers. This is especially true of my dear friend @darcyavelasquez, who works relentlessly day in and day out at @ChildrensColo to provide the best care possible to Colorado's children.
Sometimes it feels like the @KatherineJWu's, @kmess44's, and @jesscataldi's of the world are one-in-a-million. The failure to recognize the clinical laboratory (and people within it) for its importance in how healthcare works is not just a #COVIDー19 issue.

@Twitter suspended @LiMengYAN119 after she made 3 twits only. Why, @jack?

One of @LiMengYAN119’s three twits links to her paper that she likes the world to know/read. Let’s keep spreading it. 1/2

After 6 months of #lockdown and #lab shutdown I spent a full day 9 am-8 pm in lab doing experiments! New #grad students in #lifesciences: There is always light 💡 and #fluorescent images at the end of the tunnel! Filing a #patent on my #invention from #phd work soon @OrganOnAChip
This is an Organ on a Chip platform that enables mimicking #tissues and #organs in a high throughput manner! The main focus will be towards developing #mucosal organs with tissue resident #immune cells and lining #epithelial cells for #testing #COVID19 treatments #covidvaccines
I recently gave a talk at #oooc2020 organized by @GVNlab at @Columbia. In the talk I demonstrated the #ease of fabrication, #functionality, and #modularity of this platform.
We’re open to #collaborate with interested #researchers! Interested to learn more:

Cuál es su parte favorita de su trabajo? La mía primeramente es el ambiente de trabajo que tenemos aquí en #Khannalab @UofA! Se siente como un hogar porque todos somos como famila ❤️. Quien más cree que trabajar en un ambiente así es lo mejor 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️
#lab #sciencefamily
Y la segunda es hacer experimentos! Ya les conté que hago registros de patch clamp en neuronas del ganglio de la raíz dorsal? 🐭 Llevo desde principios de año haciendo estos registros y me encanta! Image
Alguien más hace esta preparación? Qué tal sus registros? Si tienen alguna duda les puedo decir cómo la hacemos aquí 😉

Antibitiotics associated with #Encephalopathy:
- Beta lactams
- #Cephalosporins (#Cefepime is the most common,
Ceftazidime)
- Imipenem
- #Penicillin procaine
- Fluoroquinolones
- Macrolides (clarithromycin)
- TMP-SMX
- #Metronidazole
- Isoniazid

I just want to be clear: while I understand and have similar frustrations with turnaround times for #COVIDー19 testing, I'm afraid the angst is falling on the laboratories...and I do not feel that is fair or appropriate. (Small thread)
The clinical laboratory is full of living, breathing, intelligent human beings. The work takes skill and time. Often, labs are understaffed and there has been a shortage of trained clinical lab scientists FOR A WHILE. There are only so many tests a person can crank out in a day.
Even if a lab has all the staff they need, there's only so much testing that can be done when a) your instruments are full b) you cannot get the supplies you need to run these tests. Seems like many people think labs have unlimited access to very expensive instruments...nope.

So "open and transparent" that if you look up Rick Switzer on the WIV website, you won't find any mention of him.

I just published C-19. Part One: The Chimera Protocol. It's not 100% ready but I feel like I'd better publish it before I fall asleep. They got to #stopscrewingup, seriously.

1/ Okay, since nobody appears to be interested, I'll just rehash points and timeline from my #Medium post about all pre- #COVID19 #research #US & #China did for "#pandemic preparedness". Proofs only, and if u think it's #fakenewscovid19, read the post and check out on the links.

2009-2010: #H1N1 #SwineFlu #pandemic claimed "between 151,700 and 575,400 people" worldwide according to the CDC.

2011: Humanity generally stopped giving a f..k even though the #virus kept coming back.

Did the lesson go to waste? There was plenty of warning on #COVID2019.

Thinking about a low cost easy to manufacture home test kit for #Coronavirus. Outline: #Nasal_swab (Q-tip) w/ freeze dried reagents for isothermal #DNA amplification with #COVID19 primers. Colorimetric readout by #iOS or #Android #App w/ #geolocation & #HIPPA compliant reporting. Image
Read-out would be in minutes - timer in App - read by camera in your smart phone. No other machines. Links to telemedicine groups for positive results. Built in positive control - e.g. no color = improper test, green NEGATIVE, red POSITIVE.
I’ve done my best creating when faced by a challenge. Next gen sequencing when my son went to new born intensive care - #454 @iontorrent. Ultrasound on a chip @ButterflyNetInc when wanted to monitor my daughter’s kidneys.

#Brexit's just 'their chance'.

John Smith moved #LAB from being a "democratic socialist" party to being a "social democrat" party. Corbyn, Milne, McDonnell et al want their Leninist roots fully restored and, then, because they're the revolutionary type of 1/2
2/2 socialist, want to try to make #LAB the "vanguard party" Lenin dreamed of, introducing socialism to the whole world.

An outdated ideology that fires-up '70s student activists like...Corbyn, Milne & McDonnell.

Wolfie Smiths in suits.

#LAB #TakenOverByExtremists
Compare & contrast with the 1945 Attlee government. What's Corbyn ever achieved? So far SFA except pissing off (now)-ex-#Labour-supporters like me.

The #Tories are desperate & lying. #Labour (well, Milne & Corbyn) are desperate & lying. Both ends of #CONLABKIP are desperate & lying. Believe either and we'll get #Brexit or #Lexit.

Whatever happens longer-term at least lending the @LibDems votes is more likely to keep 1/2
2/2 us in the #EU. We can sort the longer-term once the #Tories are dead and #Labour is rescued from its current anti-#EU extremist cabal.

But, for now, Job #1 is to keep ouselves in. Otherwise forget the "long-term".

(I'm temporarily not #LAB after 40 years, BTW.)

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

It doesn’t seem to be as easy as it looks like 😋
My version 🤠
Its definitely worse than the last time 🍳
1. Its over cooked from the outside.
2. Runny from the inside.
Possibilities why it went wrong:
1. Very hot pan to start with?
2. No enough scrambling?
Positives:
It tastes good to me😋
Take those points in account & try again next week.
