The following are MY preferences and proclivities. Some will ring true for other PDs, some may not. And Turi McNamee wrote very eloquently about this in @AnnalsofIM in 2012. pdfs.semanticscholar.org/94f4/4d6b3da42…

I’m going to tag @davidschulman , @jennifer_jwm , @KristinBurkart3 , @DrMCMiles, @GenevaTatemMD, who are PD colleagues in #pccm, and @sanjayvdesai , @TKapetanos , @MitchGoldmanMD, @abbyCCim, @jenchoi_iu and any others who are PDs. I’d love to hear from them on this topic.

Yesterday I gave a talk to my #primarycare residency on PTSD in ICU Survivors. It's a topic I've learned a lot about here on Twitter (special thx to @Potato_Chip and @brookevitti), so feels appropriate to share as my first #Tweetorial. #PCCM #MedHumChat #TraumaInformedCare
Modern medicine has developed the tools to bring people back from the brink of death. What is life like for patients after surviving the previously unsurvivable? How can we provide better care for them?
~10% of ICU patients die during their hospitalization. 90% survive. (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28800866)

~20% of ICU survivors will develop symptoms of PTSD by 12 months (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31186070)
