ILLUMINATED CODE FROM SPACE

Bioartis Haari Tesla (behance) - "Macrocosm and microcosm is an ancient Greek Neo-Platonic schema of seeing the same patterns reproduced in all levels of the cosmos, from the largest scale (macrocosm or universe-level) all the way down to the smallest scale (microcosm or sub-sub-atomic or even metaphysical-level). In the system the midpoint is Man, who summarizes thecosmos." - I was doing some researches  and I found experiment with miniatures of space so I decided to try my own. The result has been nebulae, galaxies and supernovae transformed into microorganism.

Clostridium difficile

  • gram +ve bacteria
  • causes pseudomembranous colitis
  • seen following use of broad spectrum antibiotics e.g. cephalosporins, cirpofloxacin
  • Management - metronidazole or vancomycin, STOP broad spectrum agents

Due to failure rates in normal management, trials using “faecal transplant” - infusion of faeces in to duodenum, have shown favourable results. The aim is to reintroduce normal gut flora which has been eradicated through the use of broad spectrum antibiotics, therefore providing competition for C. difficile.

Ohhhh, controversial!!! Wanted to post something like this for a while. Let’s go!

So I am going to break this down into bullet points on what I think doctors should do to get along with the nursing staff and work with them so that there is no animosity. Often times I see doctors acting like…

Must-know info for all healthcare providers!

This is a good read. I know some nurses hold animosity towards doctors because of how they’ve been treated. I think if all members of the health care team just made even a small amount of effort to make a positive work environment, it would make a huge difference.

Latest Pew study: 71 one percent of adult Internet users belong to Facebook
Nearly three-quarters of Internet users in the United States are on some form of social media, and nearly half hang out on several social networks:
More young adults and African Americans are using Instagram. According to the study, 37 percent of Instagram users are ages 18 to 29, percent (up from 28 percent in 2012) and 34 percent are African American (up from 23 percent in 2012).
 53 percent of Twitter users are also on Instagram, and 53 percent of Instagram users are also on Twitter.
Women are four times as likely as men to be Pinterest users, but overall, only 23 percent of Pinterest users visit the site daily.
 LinkedIn is the only social network in which users ages 50 to 64 are more active than users ages 18 to 29, Pew found. What’s more, LinkedIn usage is especially high among people with a college degree or higher, and among those with an annual household income of $75,000 or more.
