It's my absolute honor to introduce today's speaker at the @StanfordWellMD Physician #Wellness Forum.

Dr. @MaryamSHamidi will be sharing insights on the “Nutritional Strategies to Improve Alertness and Mood”.

#doctorsarehumanstoo #preventburnout
It's important to eat meals early (within 60 minutes of natural waking) and weigh the first meal more than the rest.

#IntermittentFasting has so many benefits including decreasing body fat BUT NOT necessarily weight loss. The latter has to do with caloric intake.

Top 10 key expert opinion recommendations for nutrition support for the critically ill patient with #COVID19 via @ASPENWEB.
These recs are based on indirect evidence (2016 SCCM/ASPEN and 2019 EPSEN Guidelines), direct evidence from limited COVID19 trials, and expert opinion. 2/
Key Rec #1:
-Use wt based equations to determine energy & protein needs
-15-20 kcals/kg/d; 1.2-2 g protein/kg
-Do not use indirect calorimeter as this increases contamination risk
-Monitor for refeeding syndrome (monitor phos, mag, potassium)

Calculating requirements (Energy)
▪️If BMI>25 therefore opt for AIBW/IBW
▪️Many with single organ failure, ventilated & febrile +
▪️Equations to help – PENN STATE & Mifflin St Jeor – factors temp/vent settings OR if in doubt or time limits ASPEN BMI>30 11-14kcal/kg/ABW/day 2/13
Calculating requirements (Energy)
▪️We anticipate most pt’s will receive only 70% of feed due to variety of issues (proning, aspiration risk/placement delays)
▪️Don’t despair but prioritise tolerance and build up feed and ⬆️ protein provision 3/13

A dear friend and #nutrition expert, Dr. @MaryamSHamidi|@StanfordWellMD:…

In a study of 245 @StanfordMed physicians, researchers found that a better diet is associated with reduced side effects of sleep deprivation.…
Sleep deprivation. Stress. Mood. Diet. all are interdependent.

⬆️ calories food are more rewarding. Higher added sugar/saturated fat/salt = comforting. Also impairs sleep. Weight gain --> sleep apnea.
Sleep deprivation --> want to eat more even when not hungry
On Food, hydration & performance:
Dehydrated pilots have poor flight performance.
Soccer referees make poor judgment when dehydrated.
Physicians who are dehydrated have impaired short term memory.

HANGRY is real.

I found my 7 year old digging through the house for change. I asked why. He owes Carmen, la elotera who sells corn & fruit outside his school, $1.50. I will remember this moment when folks ask why that school, that neighborhood. 1/6
He knows her NAME and schedule ("cada jueves, a veces los miércoles"). #dignity #respect #streetvendors
He is doing MATH ("elote en el palo $2, en la copa $3). #informaleconomy

Over the last 12 months, @isabellasaund and I have had the privilege of working with @socprogress to develop Australia's first Social Progress Index.… @CSIsocialimpact
@isabellasaund @socprogress @CSIsocialimpact Why measure #socialprogress? We live in a country that prioritises economic growth and #GDP over pretty much everything else. The logic goes that if economic progress increases, so should social progress.
@isabellasaund @socprogress @CSIsocialimpact But we know that's not the case - we know that the mining boom, while contributing to 28 years of unprecedented economic growth, has also had ongoing impacts on communities and the environment where mining companies have now left.
