Intravenous Vitamin C in Adults with Sepsis in the Intensive Care Unit

Genetics/congenital heart disease in PICU vs. NICU?
Hi everyone! I'm a peds resident leaning towards a career in intensive care, either a Pediatric Critical Care or Neonatology fellowship. I have academic interests in genetic/metabolic conditions and congenital heart disease (e.g. "Terrible Ts," Pompe disease, Williams syndrome, Turner syndrome). I've ruled out peds cardiology because I want to work in the inpatient setting exclusively, ruled out PEM because I only want to care for the sickest patients. However, given the limited time I've...

Disadvantages.
I realize this is probably a semi-unusual topic... but what are the disadvantages to joining AMEDD as a reservist mid-career? Like, I'm going up for a tenure position (which I'll get), which in my field (pediatric intensive care) is quite rare, but it is kinda unsatisfying. For those who don't know, tenure is mostly a BS position that doesn't really mean anything except they can't fire you for reason "X" and if you get an endowed chair... you get a pot of money to do whatever (I'm not that...

They served on the COVID-19 front lines. Now these emergency medicine doctors can't find jobs.
February 25, 2021 Emergency medicine (EM) resident Rafay Khan, DO, faced an onslaught of COVID-19 patients when he worked in the intensive care unit at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, Pennsylvania, in December and January. But when Khan went home, he didn’t rest much. Instead, he would turn to his quest to find a job for when he graduates this spring. He would spend hours scouring online...

Happy Holidays SDN Anesthesiologists #Case_05
Dear All, I hope you are doing well, it has been a year since my last post where I told you about passing my 1st year residency exam (like ABA) here in Iraq where I am now a third year resident in Anesthesia and Intensive Care / Iraqi Board. It has been a tough year for all of us, and for me since Covid hits Iraq, we worked very hard to contain the crisis especially with a weak and devastated health system, it wasn't easy at all, we have lost so many doctors in Iraq and well known...

Pediatric Fellowships
Since most of the pediatric fellowships are designed to have around 2 years of research and 1 year of clinical experience, does anyone know if a person wants to do double fellowships eg pediatric intensive care after completing pediatric gastroenterology, would the person be required to complete both fellowships individually for a total of 6 years (3 each) or would doing one fellowship help in reducing the time for the second fellowship. Thank you in advance for your response. (Source: Student Doctor Network)

EMTALA, C Section, and Hospitals with no Ob
Doing mandatory EMTALA training for onboarding. Yawn. This stood out to me: Hospitals are obligated to provide any service that may be required, including anesthesia, cesarean section, and intensive care for the mother or newborn as necessary until any EMC is stabilized (note: true contractions are an EMC) If you work at a hospital without Ob and a patient comes in in early labor, say, at 36 weeks, stating she is scheduled for C section the next day (at the hospital...
