Engaging and inspiring grand rounds from @EMARIANOMD today @HSSAnesthesia about biggest threats to #anesthesiology —concerns and solutions- classic Ed. Too much good info to share so excuse the string 1/8
Loss of identity.
-anesthesia is safe. We have enabled remarkable surgeries to happen and make it look easy
-we are sometimes invisible. We have a “ambivalence toward recognition”
-loss of identity ➡️ #burnout 2/8
SOLUTION to loss of identity
- We need to consider our brand
- #anesthesiology can lead in #PrecisionMedicine
- Take a “victory lap” and talk to families after #anesthesia
- Know when to take the mask off. Lead committees, contribute to the hospital, community impact 3/8

This opinion article by Douglas Makinnon is both troubling and groundbreaking. First, no one should ever condone #fatshaming - as it has been proven to be detrimental to individual struggles with #obesity and does not lead to resolution. 1/
The publication of this opinion, which “calls out” the #US government for a “waste of energy” during an #obesity crisis - #obesityepidemic is one of the few times a political publication has addressed the lack of action on resolution of this chronic diesease. @ObesityAction 2/
Despite the accusations in the article that #Physcians are NOT addressing the issue, there is a strong effort from #baraitric #surgeons and #medical #baritricians as well as advocates #RD #nurses @ObesityAction @obsmchat @ObesitySociety @OMAsocial among scores of others 3/

I love how #Canada is celebrating the #IslamicHeritageMonth and honoring the rich Muslim heritage and its contributions to the world.

For nearly 1,000 years - from the 8th to the 16th centuries - Islamic civilization underwent what is now known as the Islamic Golden Age.
This period of economic, intellectual & cultural development resulted in countless inventions & advancements which remain ubiquitous till today. We hear about inventions of Western scientists and researchers, but did you know we also owe a lot to Islamic civilization? #Muslim
In #IslamicHeritageMonth, community centers, libraries, & public institutions across #Canada have special screenings & books on display showcasing Muslim innovation across sciences, humanities, medicine, astronomy, & other disciplines.

Here are some of my favorite contributions:

1/ As a #transgender woman, I never thought I would be able to have gender confirmation #surgery. It was on Dec 22, 2016, 17 years after the start of my transition, when I finally had GCS. However, I knew something was #botched the instant I woke from anesthesia.
2/ Cheerfully my nurse asked, "How do you feel?"

"I can't feel my arms," I responded. They were paralyzed.

After several weeks of physical therapy and excruciating pain, I finally regained full use of both arms. What I never regained was my ability to urinate and defecate.
3/ 2017 and 2018 were spent seeing various colorectal and urogynecological specialists as well as months of pelvic floor therapy. I was finally referred to Dr. Melissa Kaufman, a specialist in pelvic floor disorders at Vanderbilt.

*Thread* Was at a husting today AND when I highlighted the actual #waitinglist statistics for access to #healthcare #consultants and lack of #frontlinestaff #nurses & #GPs a sitting MEP & member of one our main political parties aimed to DISMISS the data... 1/
The data I presented was not compiled by me but by many prestigious organisations who represent #nurses #doctors #midwives #consultants #pharmacists #paramedics #carers #physios #OTs (tag anyone you wish here) 2/
The response I (and the audience got) was along the lines of “with technology data can be wrong” and “people don’t turn up to appointments”. I had no hestitation in finding an example and explained just how bloody difficult it can be for the #elderly to attend clinics... 3/

Interesting #Ortho tidbit. SHOULDER PAIN
You're over 40, you go to the doc because your #shoulder hurts. You did NOT have an injury. Many will be sent for an MRI.... 1/?
Bear in mind ... You have a very significant chance that a rotator cuff "abnormality" will be found. Those abnormalities will sound scary .... Partial rotator cuff tears, full rotator cuff tears, and labral tears. 2/?
These can be very alarming to many people... the word "tear" implies you're damaged and therefore something must be wrong -- and perhaps you're thinking it must be fixed. 3/?
