STROKE

Right Side VERSUS Left Side Cerebral Vascular Accidents

[By staff reporters]

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients [occlusive and hemorrhagic]. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die.A stroke is a medical emergency. Prompt treatment is crucial. Early action can minimize brain damage and potential complications.The good news is that strokes can be treated and prevented, and many fewer Americans die of stroke now than in the past.

World Bi-Polar Day 2021

By staff reporters

Bipolar disorder, formerly called manic depression, is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings that include emotional highs (mania or hypomania) and lows (depression).

When you become depressed, you may feel sad or hopeless and lose interest or pleasure in most activities. When your mood shifts to mania or hypomania (less extreme than mania), you may feel euphoric, full of energy or unusually irritable. These mood swings can affect sleep, energy, activity, judgment, behavior and the ability to think clearly.

Episodes of mood swings may occur rarely or multiple times a year. While most people will experience some emotional symptoms between episodes, some may not experience any.

Although bipolar disorder is a lifelong condition, you can manage your mood swings and other symptoms by following a treatment plan. In most cases, bipolar disorder is treated with medications and psychological counseling (psychotherapy).

On Physician [Un] Match Day 2021

UN-Match day 2021

By Staff Reporters

DEFINITION: Match Day is a term used widely in the graduate medical education community to represent the day when the National Resident Matching Program or NRMP releases results to physician applicants seeking residency and fellowship training positions in the United States.

Unmatched physicians

So many physicians this year didn’t match, just like any other yesteryear.

* All have gone to medical school after being 1-10 top percent of their premedical courses.
* All have finished medical school .
* All of them have passed their USLME exams, but they didn’t match.

Medicine is calling for all of them, but they won’t be practicing medicine.

Why?

Limited number of spots for the new residents.
We know that there is shortage but we let these doctors not practice medicine.
Such an irony.

Assessment

  • Let these doctors practice in a supervised environment!
  • Your comments are appreciated

The Diderot Effect?

What is it?

[By staff reporters]

The Diderot Effect is a social phenomenon related to consumer goods. It is based on two ideas.

The first idea is that goods purchased by consumers will align with their sense of identity, and, as a result, will complement one another.

The second idea states that the introduction of a new possession that deviates from the consumer’s current complementary goods can result in a process of spiraling consumption.

The term was coined by anthropologist and scholar of consumption patterns Grant McCracken in 1988, and is named after the French philosopher Denis Diderot, who first described the effect in an essay.

Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2020

Nobel Laureate Jennifer Doudna

By Staff Reporters

Even as a child growing up in Hawaii, Nobel Laureate Jennifer Doudna had a strong urge to know things. One day, her father placed the book ‘The Double Helix’ on her bed. This detective-style story about how the structure of the DNA molecule was solved was like nothing she had read in her school textbooks. She was captivated by the scientific process and realised that science is more than just facts.

However, when she started to solve scientific mysteries, her attention was not on DNA, but on its molecular sibling: RNA. This would eventually lead her to the discovery of CRISPR/Cas9 a tool that can be used to change the DNA of organisms with extremely high precision and, in 2020, to the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

Wishing her a happy birthday today!

The Medicare Cost Control Paradox

WHAT IS THE “MEDICARE COST CONTROL EFFICIENCY” PARADOX?

The 800 Pound Gorilla in the Medical Treatment Room

Blogger Ezra Klein opined more than a decade ago that one of the dirty little secrets of the health-care system is that Medicare has done a much better job controlling costs than private health insurers. It is a paradox!

DEFINITION: A paradox is a seemingly absurd or self-contradictory statement or proposition that when investigated may prove to be well founded or true.

QUERY: But, what about Medicare, cost control efficiency, today?

What is Physician Board “Certification” & “Eligibility”?

WHAT IS PHYSICIAN BOARD CERTIFICATION AND BOARD ELIGIBILITY?
Courtesy: https://lnkd.in/drrYKeT

BOARD CERTIFICATION (Boarded, Diplomate): A doctor who is board certified has pursued advanced training in his or her specialty and has passed a qualifying examination; a doctor who is board eligible has received the training but has not taken or passed the exam.
DHIMC: https://lnkd.in/e9AmEhd

BOARD ELIGIBLE: Describes a physician who is eligible to take the specialty board examination by virtue of being graduated from an approved medical school, completing a specific type and length of training, and practicing for a specified amount of time. Some HMOs and other health facilities accept board eligibility as equivalent to board certification, significant in that many managed care companies restrict referrals to physicians without certification.
