#FalseAlarm, #fakenews, ignorance...2019 #AmazonFires are only 35% more (ok, so far) than the average of the last 8 years.Most are burning on agricultural land where the forest had already been cleared, a common agricultural practice #deforestation #Brazil nytimes.com/interactive/20…
#AmazonFires 🔥🔥🔥 As of August 16, 2019, an analysis of #NASA satellite data indicated that total fire activity across the #Amazon basin this year has been close to the AVERAGE in comparison to the past 15 years. earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/145464/…

#Amazon contributes at most 5% (not 20%) of the world’s oxygen‼️
We actually used to see fires like this, and even worse, back in the 1990s and the early 2000s #climatechange #FakeNews

Anthropogenic #CO2 emissions, combined with #deforestation and increased #human-caused ignitions have created the perfect storm for #megafires in the #Amazon #IPCC2014
Warmer temperatures as a result of increased #anthropogenic #CO2, #detorestation and increased #fire activity can cause #positive #feedbacks that push the #Amazon towards a #tippingpoint resulting in a shift from #rainforest to #savanna forests
A shift from #rainforest to #savanna ecosystems will have global consequences. The rainforest creates its own weather by recycling moisture from the jungle. The trees absorb #CO2 and release #oxygen, literally the air we breathe.

A 1,000-square-foot medical clinic in the Andes Mountains is transforming rural healthcare

In the mountains of #Peru, a husband and wife run a #Quechuan-speaking center where patients pay what they can and are never turned away due to a lack of resources

Recently in our #MICU, I took pics of the oxygen sats of patients on oxygen supplementation.

What is the optimal oxygen supplementation strategy for a clinically stable patient in the ICU?

Follow me down this #tweetorial rabbit hole. #medtwitter #pulmcc #AIMW19

Given that population health improvements often come from small benefits in large populations, and the fact that #oxygen is one of the most commonly prescribed interventions in the #ICU, there is potential for benefit if we can correctly titrate our oxygen titration.

I’m going to refer to hypoxia and hyperoxia in this #medthread, and I’d like to (somewhat arbitrarily) define these terms. I’ll call hypoxia anything below 90% and hyperoxia anything above 96%. This is based upon some of the literature I will discuss.

Over 10 years ago, @ChemistryWorld started a project with the @NakedScientists (especially @Meera_Senthi) to tell the story of each chemical #element: The Chemistry in its Element #podcast. Let's look back for #IYPT2019. Here's @brianclegg with #hydrogen:

@ChemistryWorld @NakedScientists @Meera_Senthi @brianclegg The podcasts weren't published in atomic number order – we jumped around the #periodictable a bit – but here's @peterwothers getting grumpy about party balloons and the loss of the precious elemental resource: #Helium

#Lithium lubricates bearings & boosts batteries, but is also an important drug for depression and bipolar disorder. Nirvana sang about it in 1990 and, hot on their heels, Matt Wilkinson wrote a #podcast for @ChemistryWorld in 2009: chemistryworld.com/podcasts/lithi… #IYPT2019 #Mendeleev

My birthday is Feb 21.

I can't afford my #healthcare after Feb. 28 because my monthly premium leapt to $1,978.10 in January.

I'm re-applying for #Medicaid and #SSDI, but no one should have to do this in America.

I am just one of millions.
I'm angry.
I've been angry since Nov. 9, 2016.
I'm not by nature an angry person.
But when you're fighting for your literal life, you're in constant pain & you have to fight a system dedicated to crushing sick/#disabled people, it's enraging.
All over America people are crowdfunding

*healthcare
*prescriptions
*#oxygen
*dental care
*medical tests
*surgeries

Not artistic works or small films or books but
THINGS THAT WILL KEEP US FROM DYING.

Take that in, America.
