A blood pressure reading lower than 90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) for the top number (systolic) or 60 mm Hg for the bottom number (diastolic) is generally considered low blood pressure. #medtwitter #CardioTwitter #lowBP
Low blood pressure might seem desirable, and for some people, it causes no problems. However, for many people, abnormally low blood pressure (hypotension) can cause dizziness and fainting. In severe cases, low blood pressure can be life-threatening. #dizziness #fainting
Symptoms of low BP •Dizziness or lightheadedness
•Fainting
•Blurred or fading vision
•Nausea
•Fatigue
•Lack of concentration

In the am, increasing shocked state. On norad 20ml/hr SS, vasopressin max, adrenaline 5ml/hr to maintain MAP > 60.

Continuing the vasoactive meds week, we will talk about dopamine. It is a precursor of norepinephrine, inducing its release. There are dopamine receptors in the renal, splanchnic, coronary and cerebral vascular beds; stimulation of these receptors cause vasodilation. #critcare
Again, since our historical "nerdiness" was so well received, this is one of the first papers that talked about dopamin in shock: pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/1563/#:~:text=…
And this is their conclusion:"Because dopamine increases myocardial contractility, selectively redistributes perfusion to essential viscera and allows a pharmacologic titration of effect, it is a logical first-choice catecholamine for treatment of shock and refractory HF."

When I personally learned about the OP #SaveTheChildren taking down #Tunnels/DUMBS last MARCH 2020, I CRIED & CRIED
I was very #EMOTIONAL, #SHOCKED hearing all that was happening to all OUR #CHILDREN underneath our feet
My Thoughts were straight away to these #Children how #traumatized, hurt they would be

Not all hypotension is from hypovolemia. Then why load every hypotensive patient with #fluids? 🤔 An excerpt from a previous lecture. Very basic. Intended for #medicalstudent #MedEd
Experts, stay away 😄
First, what happens when somebody is hypovolemic?
The cardiac output drops
Unless doing #POCUS, we are not measuring cardiac output. We are measuring blood pressure. So, why does it drop? because it depends on the cardiac output!

1/10 It’s hard to shut my mind off in the face of #COVID19. As #AcuteCareSurgeons our day/night/weekend jobs taking care of #injured patients and #patients needing #EmergencySurgery for abdominal and soft tissue diseases do not dissipate.
2/10 Yet we are also experts in #CriticalCare and need to prepare to care for patients w/ #respiratoryfailure and #shock due to #COVID19. We are implementing #plans based on the little evidence that exists while trying to stay #safe, #healthy, and #resilient.
3/10 We step into the trauma bay as others threaten to shoot our patient (but police can protect us). We do operations where rHepC/HIV risk is high (but PEP can protect us). We don't shy away from blood, feces or dead flesh up to our eyeballs (but we have #PPE to protect us).

1/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4414: Alex Bozarjian, news reporter slapped by runner on live TV: "He took my power" — #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #AlexBozarjian #Shock #Assault #ThreatAssessment #MeToo
2/ From a body language perspective, the perpetrator's jaw can be seen to be projecting forward [Jaw Jut]. In addition, his lips are pulled inward, between the teeth [Inward Lip Roll].
3/ This facial expression combination [cluster] is indicative of an adrenaline surge and consistent with Ms. Bozarjian's recounting of "it was a heavy impact" and "he hit me hard".

People with courage exist.

We allow children to be kept in concentration camps.

America disgusts me.
I can't wait to go on trial for over 3 years of my life against #TheState!

The #CityOfPortland wants me in jail and I will demonstrate that my peaceful #FreeSpeech was both entirely truthful and correct. #Portland's City Council colluded with @G4S to sign a $10 million contract.
Mayor #TedWheeler's cowardly City Council rammed-through a new 5-year contract without public testimony, and while ignoring KNOWN PUBLIC DISAPPROVAL.

@G4S security also armed, trained & included #OmarMateen in their "security agent" ranks - the #Pulse mass-shooting killer of 49.

More details on the schism between the Hazimis and lesser-extremists in #IS: Abu Anisa al-Dagestani, an Azeri commanded and Hazimi, blames the caliph's insufficiently stern position on takfir for the loss of land and men last year. chechensinsyria.com/?p=26129
According to Abu Anisa al-Dagestani, the caliph reversed the May 2017 expansion by the Delegated Committee of the takfir ruling after his wife had a dream in which Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, and Abu Muhammad al-Furqan came to his house and ignored him. #pt
The caliph reversed the May 2017 takfir ruling by a deft institutional manoeuvre: he invited its author, Ismail al-Ithawi (Abu Zayd al-Iraqi), to a meeting in August 2017 and threatened to kill him if he didn't reverse himself. #pt

Una de las cosas más maravillosas que te pueden pasar es enamorarte, ¿no?. ¿Quién no se quiere enamorar? HILO👇
Todo empezó cuando yo estaba pasando una etapa durilla. Me acababan de echar del trabajo.
Me había costado lo suyo tener algo de estabilidad laboral cuando... Pum! No sé qué de ajustes presupuestarios y que yo no era indispensable.
