It is that time of year when i'll start getting questions from graduating #ophthalmology residents about the best ways to prepare for #retina fellowship...here are some of my favorite resources
🧵
Going through the @aao_ophth BCSC Retina book is a great way to start. All the important topics are covered here to some degree. A good grasp of the information in this book will help build a foundation.
There are plenty of retina textbooks out there. Truthfully you likely won't have time to go cover to cover but you can pick out topics for a deep dive. Ryan's Retina is a classic AND may be available online for free through your medical center library

Estornudos 🤧

Todo el mundo sabe que se puede estornudar por gripe, alergia o cualquier irritación nasal momentánea pero…

…si tú o alguien que conoces ESTORNUDA CON LA LUZ☀️, DESPUÉS DE COMER🍇 O POR EXCITACIÓN SEXUAL🔥, este hilo es para ti

🧵👇🏼

1/13
Estornudar es un reflejo protectivo🛡 y en ocasiones puede ser signo de alguna condición médica. Ocurre debido a la estimulación del tracto respiratorio alto (o superior), particularmente de la cavidad nasal👃🏼

2/13

#Sneeze #Nose #RespiratoryTract
A lo largo de la historia se le ha dado diferentes explicaciones a estornudar, incluyendo #mitos y #supersticiones, ej: grieg@s y roman@s creían q era un signo de #bienestar y expresaban buenos deseos a la persona q lo hacía diciendo “Larga vida” o “Que Júpiter te bendiga”

I'll be adding short important points which would hopefully help in remembering certain concepts during #PLAB preparation, to this thread🧵every now and then as I take them out from my scattered notes. Feel free to comment your tips and tricks which would help others, as well 👇
Please don't take any of these as medical advice 😂🙏. Real life stuff is much more nuanced. These are just clinchers for the sake of the exam.
#PLAB
1. Drug contraindications...
-Avoid BAN drugs in Asthma (Beta blockers, aspirin, NSAIDS) &
-DAMN drugs in diarrhoea (Diuretics, ACEIs, Metformin, NSAIDs)

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

Accountability

Flowers, I will go see she said.

Headed to Esplanade (cuz this photo alone would check a box but would actually be cheating - the power of “optics” or manufactured data whose lives & careers are Twitter).

Question everything you see
See like a #pediatrician Image
I shall see from a new perspective she said - I will cross on the other side.

(Actually, I wanted to be on the other side but would have to walk a block to cross so, fine, I’ll cross on this side. Bah humbug). Image
I shall admire the barely born green hope unfurling into the crisp Spring air, fragile yet #resilient, she said

(Yay #Science and @museumofscience #BostonStrong #Boston ... and yes, and requisite monuments to male anatomy and war as well) Image

I can't speak to the details of all the pardons and commutations handed out by Trump, but there is one especially heinous one I'm moved to address. It involves #ophthalmology and #RacialEquity in health care.

Come along... 1/21
First, you have to know a little about age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). We have a smart wallpaper (retina) that lines the back of our eyes (the center of which is called the macula), and it turns light into electrical signal to send to the brain. 2/21
Melanin-derived pigment is an important photochemical buffer for absorbing this light over the course of an eye's life.

Macular degeneration, therefore, is a breakdown of this pigment layer of the retina. 3/21

#Tweetorial time! A little late this week as I’ve been busy on inpatient. Transitioning to #CommonNeuroConsults and this week will start with a #stroke and #ophthalmology topic @DGlaucomflecken @MedTweetorials #meded #medstudenttwitter

“Transient Monocular Vision Loss”
1/
You may also hear this called “amaurosis fugax” and can be due to an ocular cause, a vascular cause, or an optic nerve head problem!
2/
Let’s start with a brief review of ocular and oculovascular anatomy!

Your optic nerve is cranial nerve 2. This is the nerve that transmits visual information from the retina to the visual cortex.

"Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" (John Lydon)

The publication of this letter & the nature of its correction raises questions about the reliability of the academic record.

THREAD

When the letter by Won Sriwijitalai & Viroj Wiwanitkit was published in #JFLM, fact-checking journalists @SureAndShare in Thailand shared their concerns about it on @Twitter & @Facebook.

2/14
@SureAndShare were concerned that they were unable to verify who the 1st author was (or where they worked), or the death of a #forensic #medical professional from #COVID19. They cautioned against sharing the story.
