Homeschooling international status and statistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Homeschooling is legal in many countries. Countries with the most prevalent home education movements include Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Some countries have highly regulated home education programs as an extension of the compulsory school system; others, such as Germany,[1] have outlawed it entirely. In other countries, while not restricted by law, homeschooling is not socially acceptable or considered undesirable and is virtually non-existent.

Why we do what we do: Antibiotics for dog bites

For a long time when encountering a patient who had suffered a dog bite I reflexively placed the patient on antibiotics. Generally, either amoxicillin/clavulanate or clindamycin. Along the way I began to question whether or not there is evidence to support this practice, since I also haven’t seen many infected dog bites. As you may already be aware, most dog bites are from an animal known to the victim. One study from Australia noted that >4/5 were known. In children under 5 the bites are more likely to be in the head/neck (60-70%). See Patronek at al. for more. In older children and adults the extremities – more commonly the dominant hand – are involved.

Tox Myths and Mistruths - INTENSIVE

On Saturday 11th June 2016, The Irish Intensive Care Society Annual Scientific Meeting in Dublin will incorporate a Toxicology Symposium, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Irish National Poisons Information Center. The full programme is available here (pdf), and from the point-of-view of a tox-obsessed intensivist, it looks pretty exciting! The international line-up alone includes Donna Seger (USA), Bruno Mégarbane (France), Leon Gussow of The Poison Review fame (USA) and John Myburgh (Australia). In addition, I will be speaking about ‘Tox Myths and Mistruths’, and the resources for the talk are provided below.

UMEM Educational Pearls - University of Maryland School of Medicine, Department of Emergency Medicine

A new study from Australia shows that temper tantrums tax the heart. Some 300 patients with acute heart attack and confirmed coronary occlusion by angiography rated their usual anger level and their level in the 48 h before the attack. Just over 2% reported blowing their stack within 2 h of the attack. The angry outbursts were provoked by arguments at home, in the community, or at work, or by road rage. Compared with their usual anger levels, the relative risk of heart attack from their fit of rage was 8.5. Mechanisms may include sympathetic activation that speeds the heart, raises blood pressure, constricts blood vessels, and activates clotting (1).

Gastroenterology team

“In the past, managing irritable bowel syndrome by controlling the diet has been seen as a wacky idea—one for those who aren’t science driven,” admits Miranda Lomer, senior consultant dietician at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in London. But many minds have been changed by the success of a dietary regimen originally developed in Australia.
