So the first thread I want to do is tech/applications that have made my science easier and more accessible. Some of them are paid (not always accessible), but I'll try to offer a free version that I've used that may not be as great but worked for me. 1/
I'm not paid by any of these companies and I am welcome to be corrected/supplemented on any of these resources from people in the community. Because we work together, not separately!! So LET'S GO! 2/
Science is hard. And trying to keep track of all the literature can be a pain so I have some resources for that. The trifecta: @RsrchRabbit, @zotero, and Excel Splicer worksheet. 3/

Just in: @GendroOrg piece – Towards the real-time inclusion of sex-and age-disaggregated #data in #pandemic responses – published @GlobalHealthBMJ

Enjoy your fresh #globalhealth read!

DYK, that only 1/3 of all #COVID19 cases are reported to WHO with #data on sex & age?

If we want comprehensive & effective #publichealth measures to fight the pandemic, we need systematically collect & report #genderdata.

How? Check out our paper👉 Image
Data on #sexdifferences, #gender, age, geographies, #accesstohealth are essential from the outset and throughout different phases of #COVID19 progression.

More about prerequisites in pandemic response read our paper @GlobalHealthBMJ👇 Image

So Who is at risk? And why?
♥️Hormones fluctuate over a lifetime in BOTH men &💃♥️There are benefits of estrogen in women protecting them but at menopause it changes and more risk factors ⤴️the risk for ♥️ disease
@MaasAngela #ESCCongress
🔺⤴️insulin resistance
🔺⤴️ adverse cardiometabolic risk profile
All seen in menopause, increasing the risk of CVD in 💃

"Further validation of the affective bias test for predicting antidepressant and pro-depressant risk: effects of pharmacological and social manipulations in male and female rats" @Dr_Hinch @doctmcgee…
Summary: #pharmacology #affectivebias #depression #animalmodels #affectivestate #malesandfemales #ABT
The need for a reliable and #translational tool measuring emotional behaviours in animals that possessing robust validity is unquestionably important but 1/
but very challenging to achieve. Commonly used assays are generally lacking in at least one aspect of #validity and do not fully translate into #clinical work. In this paper, the affective bias test (ABT) has demonstrated to reliably detect both positive 2/

#SCCT2020 Limitations of Stress Testing/Imaging in Women from @Heart_SCCT
♥️Too few 💃 enrolled in studies based on prevelance esp in CAD and HF
♥️NIH/Gov funded the worst enrollees of women! We need to change that
#scct2020 Sex Considerations for Stress Testing need to be considered
♥️ Sn/Sp of tests based on doing Cath for Obstructive CAD: these are NOT false positives! so these numbers are outdated IMHO
♥️every imaging modality has + &- to consider when imaging women
♥️Prognostic implications of CAC in women vs men well established: CAC >300: 💃 do worse
♥️Nonobstructive disease more prevalent in 💃
♥️ Implications on imaging women ultimately
