Pharmacy pearls I’ve noticed in ICU COVID patients... 1) ⬆️ triglycerides (from HLH features of these patients) make using propofol sedation regimens difficult, have had to use BZDs to achieve apparopriate sedation for paralysis... 1/
2) look for Co-infections. These patients can be persistently febrile but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s due to COVID alone. Co-infections DO happen. Viral or bacterial. Trust me.... 2/
3) the need to keep patients net negative/even with diuresis/ ultrafiltration makes pts more sensitive to hypotension from propofol (when you can use it). 4) the drug interactions with Kaletra/plaquenil and other drugs makes me want to 😭..... 2/

We lost power for like 8 days after hurricane Irma. Our phones only worked sporadically, if at all. On maybe day 3, I drove about 9 miles to a parking lot near a working cell tower. I checked in w/ friends & family, submitted some documents & pictures to insurance companies...
...sought out locally relevant news and timelines. Where to go for water. If the tax deadline had been extended. How to make my mortgage payment. What stations had gas. When we might get power.

It was all so present. So immediate.

I remember looking at facebook. My local friends feeds were of devastation and largely unsolvable problems, and so, so many questions. While for everyone outside the blast radius, life just goes on. Birthdays and pet pics and memes and life, as it should be.

Used to be 2 weeks, caught w/in 100 miles of border, but now you'll have to prove you were here for 2 YEARS--& they can snag you anywhere--or else you can be deported WITHOUT seeing a judge.

Takes effect immediately, but comments ARE allowed.
This pdf is the "change in regulation," as sent out by DHS this morning, which will allow them, potentially, to deport many, many more people without judicial oversight or review. People who've lived here for years.…
And this is where, starting tomorrow (TUESDAY) you'll be able to start leaving comments on the Federal Register. I suggest you do. DHS needs to know what you think about their gestapo tactics.

Hm. I may have betrayed my hand there...
