I was nearing the end of my pediatrics rotation as a third-year medical student when the senior resident asked me to admit a patient to the general pediatrics floor. The only information I had as I headed down to the intensive care unit was that she was a ten-year-old girl who had survived an extensive resuscitation at home. By this point in my education, I was certain that I wanted to be a pediatrician. I had recently finished my internal medicine rotation. Fresh in my mind were hospitalized patients who were suffering from their past choices, like drug addiction and alcoholic cirrhosis. I had cared for a man who, as soon...

This study investigated the behavioral phenotypes characteristic of GR stimulation in male Wistar rats. Rats in each of the four groups of rats received one of the following treatments: distilled water (control) or one of three doses of dexamethasone (treatment) injected intraperitoneally for 7 days. The Rats were afterwards subjected to the Y maze, the elevated plus maze (EPM), the Morris water maze (MWM), and the novel object recognition (NOR) test. At the end of the study, the animals were anesthetized and neural activity from the prefrontal cortex recorded. Blood was collected via cardiac puncture to evaluate the level...

Our greatest and worst attribute is seeing and saying that the Emperor has no clothes.  It requires intellectual honesty, a willingness to overcome confirmation bias and perhaps some hubris.  Often we make others uncomfortable with the raw honesty of such proclamations. For years many blogs have decried performance measures.  I have written about this problem for over 10 years.  Currently I serve on ACPs performance measure committee.  In this capacity I have reviewed well over 100 performance measures.  Most performance measures have the potential for harming patient care.  The committee...

These results show that both assays are suitable for ISD monitoring in an APAC population across a range of different transplant types. PMID: 29214751 [PubMed - in process]
