Sort of like ABSITE studying itself, our high yield #absite graphics series this year had some highs and some lows. What better way to reminisce than putting them all in one place... 🧵(1/n)

CPB 🧵pt4. Dessert course. Circ arrest.

Yes we know it’s a lifestyle.

But what IS it actually? Why do we do that to a person - stop blood flow to their whole body. Isn’t blood flow necessary? Or at least preferable?

To understand why we “circ arrest” someone- meaning arrest or stop the circulation to the whole body- we have to return to the basics of vascular surgery (bc cardiac surgery is kind of the ultimate #vascularsurgery 🙃)

it’s all about proximal and distal control
Let’s say you want to fix a psuedoanuerysm on the common femoral artery.

Well you need to get proximal and distal control with vascular clamps so that you can work on the area of interest.

Now while you’re working, the leg is a little sad 😔 but it’s got some collateral flow

We proudly share the first @CovidSurg @GlobalSurg paper published in @Anaes_Journal based on the world’s biggest data about surgery following SARS-CoV-2 infection. Hopefully, it will guide practice.

📃It is open access and you can read it here 👇 doi.org/10.1111/anae.1…
@CovidSurg @GlobalSurg Week was an international, prospective cohort study with more than 140,000 surgical patients from 116 countries enrolled 🌏🌎🌍

We compared 30-day postoperative mortality in previously infected patients with SARS-CoV-2 vs patients who never were infected
Previously infected patients having surgery at 0-2, 3-4, 5-6 weeks after the infection have higher mortality rates than patients who never got infected with SARS-CoV-2 ImageImage

Have to say something about the #MedBikini paper. I run the professional identity formation course for my institution. My intentions in the course are to pull back the curtain on the #HiddenCurriculum, and empower students to reframe what #professionalism should look like.
To me, this means:
✅Promoting #DEI
✅Dismantling #SystemicRacism, #WhiteSupremacy, and #Misogyny
✅Normalizing #DocsWithDisabilities, #ImposterSyndrome, and seeking #MentalHealth support
✅Building a group of #MDsLoading willing to #SpeakTruthToPower
Framework for the course is the seminal @AcadMedJournal paper from Cruess et al. from 2015 (👀👇).

#MedBikini authors have done so much damage, but to me, they have really laid bare what being socialized into the profession of #VascularSurgery really looks like. Image
