@JenniferBrokaw Caveats
1⃣I’m not an anesthesiologist & don’t care for pts w PD #intraoperatively
2⃣I practice outpatient #PREoperative medicine, so I am not providing inpatient postop care
3⃣There are several high yield publications/resources, & much of this is pulled from my own experience

@JenniferBrokaw Caveats out of the way, let’s chat about why understanding #periop #ParkinsonsDisease management is so foundational.
Remember how Osler said to know syphilis is to know all of internal medicine?

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.
