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.

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.

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.
