Interesting European study that confirms the US findings: #POTS is the most common autonomic disorder, both after #COVID19 and #covidvaccines. It's important to remember that in the past, the European Medical Agencies rejected the idea that #POTS can follow #HPV vaccination. 1/n
But #Covid #pandemic showed us that jumping to conclusions prematurely and denying reality observed in various countries - which is that #POTS can be triggered by HPV vaccines - serves no purpose in scientific process or #PatientCare. 2/n
The house of cards has fallen. We can all agree now that #POTS is one of the major post-infectious AND post-vaccination adverse events and can finally invest money/resources in studying it and bringing effective therapies to millions of pts with POTS. 3/3…

I didn't think I'd spend my Easter morning educating hospital personnel about #AirborneTransmission but that's what happened. Here's a summary of the crack-of-dawn 💩 show at a hospital.

Approached screener. I was told to put on sloppy mask. Said I will put over #n95. Not asked any screening Qs. Noticed her mask only covering mouth. I said, "Your mask has slipped down." She points to the plexiglass. I proceed to advise her that #COVIDisAirborne.

I mean there is literally only one other guy that I can see, but aren't they told IT'S IN THE AIR?

I split, go to my destination, & an admin appears MASKLESS. She proceeds to put on a mask under her chin, then asks me questions, unfazed. WTAF.

#AIMART storytime 🧵
This just in: Boom💥
So, I’m getting ready for work today, tying up the ol’ scrubs and peek at my phone - I see a message, sent last night from the ER doc stating that one of my patients, a young Black man admitted for Sickle cell pain crisis...

..., wanted to leave and the doc was okay with discharging because the patient’s pain seemed to have resolved. Ok, I get to the 🏥and my team informs me the patient is still in-house (in the ED – No beds on the floors.

The ED is overflowing, so we have patients admitted and waiting in the ED for a bed for daaaays on end. Coupled with the ED being short-staffed - yeah…not good) and didn’t leave, after my wonderful senior resident convinced him to stay and receive more analgesia (pain meds)

I need a medical #oncology bed to transfer a 28 yo patient needing to urgently start chemotherapy. Not ICU, preferably #Texas. Please RT, DM. @OncoAlert @tmprowell @AjvictoryMD
Thank you for RT so far, we’ve been trying to get this patient to a hospital w/ chemotherapy capabilities for 6 days now 🙏🏻
Oxygen requirements increasing 🙁

Our new paper is out !

We explore which aspects influence health professionals´ decisions regarding EoL decisions and care for cancer patients in Colombia. #palliativecare @palliativewise @BMC_series #cancercare #patientcare…

Starting thread ... 🧵
We did a qualitative descriptive-exploratory study based on phenomenology using semi-structured interviews incluiding several professionals´ and several urban hospitals. Main results 👇

Professionals consider :
👉Patient's clinical condition, cultural and social context, in particular treating indigenous patients requires special skills, so training in discussing EoL is extremely important.

👉Many patients deny their imminent death which hampers shared open conversations.

@MParshleyMD @adamIMdoc @InduPartha @primarycarechat @ACPinternists Urgent need to provide MORE time for ambulatory visits. Us ambulatory specialists have all felt the time crunch of seeing complex patient w/ 5-10 issues (or more) in 15-20 minutes. NOT good #PatientCare. NOT #PatientSafety. Thread 🧵 1 @ACPinternists #IMProud
@MParshleyMD @adamIMdoc @InduPartha @primarycarechat @ACPinternists We need major payment reform so reimbursements & physician “productivity” is NOT volume-centered based on number of visit encounters. THAT drives ambulatory schedules to have visits that are far too short to maximize numbers of visits. Thread 🧵 2 @ACPinternists #IMProud
@MParshleyMD @adamIMdoc @InduPartha @primarycarechat @ACPinternists Focus on value of care, NOT number of visits. Have flexibility of visit lengths based on appropriateness for care complexity. Get rid of “one size fits all” 15-20 minute visits. Simple 1 issue visit ok for that. Complex multi-problems-NOT ok w/ that. Threads 🧵 3 @ACPinternists

As a part of my #PHMFellowship I spent last month with our wonderful #PalliativeCare (PaCT) team. I would like to share some reflections (in my first ever 🧵) on how valuable this month was for me. 1/
2/ In #PediatricHM we often have to deliver difficult news or discuss hard decisions with parents. How comfortable are we in these situations?

This month I saw the PaCT team show endless #empathy while sitting with families experiencing BIG emotions.
3/ I learned how statements like “I can see how much you care about your child” and “Tell me about your hopes and concerns for your child” can be so helpful. @vitaltalk offers more examples to help guide these convos.

I truly believe this is why ⁦@SanfordHealth⁩ is able to get away with all it does. #DennySanford is powerful and a contributor to #republican party. Both SD and ND are red states. Money talks.
#Sanford’s first priority has NEVER been 1/…
about #patientcare or EVEN about their employees. It has been and is about #money & #power. #Patients & #caregivers needs concerns ignored & complaints to government entities go unheard. Employees provided the worst #healthcare policies ever. #Sanford needs to 2/
truly engage with #patientadvocates if they want their imagine to change. Without his #money & #power they have less protection. Very sad and cynical thing to say but I truly believe it. 3/

A broad spectrum of #CVD toxicities can be seen with targeted therapies or #ICIs

Toxicities of one or the other can include cardiomyopathy, HF, myocarditis, venous or arterial thrombosis, progression of atherosclerosis, QTc prolongation, or arrhythmias

3/ 🔥✍🏽🗣

An eminent need is optimal risk management, surveillance, detection, and prevention

The heterogeneities of patient populations, risks, and disease spectra have complicated clinical and translation efforts

Going through my notes from the DIPS workshop (21-23 Feb 2020), I couldn't help but marvel at the depth and quality of the ideas discussed! 💡

👇This thread is an attempt to share select insights and thank ALL the organizers for the experience! 🙏


💡Good problem solvers are not necessarily good researchers also.

💡Simply wanting to do science is not enough. Persistence matters a lot more than wit does.

PS: Excellent thread by @AasthaV_ for a glimpse of all the lectures and tours!


🍎 Apples are falling on everybody's heads, all the time. Only a few Newtonian people ask WHY.

🍎 Since physician-scientists are less in number, benchmarking success is tough. You have to define your own criteria for success and strive towards them.

re: the current sad state of American physicians

🙏Why Doctors Should Organize…
#PatientCare #Healthcare
@drjudymelinek @choo_ek
Doctor-patient relationship is crucial and I wonder if a patient is aware of the hospital’s policy (not the doctor) for a visit time allotment (in minutes).

Building More Trust Between Doctors and Patients… @HarvardBiz #empathy #trust #PatientCare #IBD
“Administrative tasks have become so burdensome ....only thirteen per cent (13%) of a physician’s day, on average, is spent on doctor-patient interaction” Dr. Topol… #PatientCare #AI #Health #Healthcare #IBD #IBS #Hospital #Corpgov #Safety #MedEd #Doctors
