“There’s a storm coming, Mr Wayne…”

As Catwoman said to Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight Rises: There has been a large backlash from UK junior doctors against Jeremy Hunt’s proposed changes to the #juniorcontract. What if this is a smokescreen for the proposed changes to the existing consultant contract? This is not like 2003, where a new contract was being proposed.…

Don’t just soldier on—read this

We recently learnt that health professionals, among others, do work that is the least replaceable by computers and robots (doi:10.1136/bmj.h6250). This is something Jeremy Hunt may be pondering with regret as talks continue on the junior doctors’ and consultant contracts. It may also partly explain why doctors don’t take sick leave when they’re ill.

JC: Can alcohol relieve nausea. St.Emlyn's - St.Emlyn's

Whilst I was a medical student, I ran several ‘n of 1’ clinical trials, principally investigating whether alcohol could reduce nausea. My notes from these studies were incomprehensible scrawls, and in all honesty the results seemed to disprove my null hypothesis. My early experience, and my subsequent experience as an emergency physician in Virchester rather suggests that alcohol is definitely associated with nausea and vomiting. But maybe we’ve been doing it wrong. So, I was pretty excited to see what Beadle et al found in their trial investigating whether Isopropyl Alcohol wipes could reduce nausea in the Emergency Department. This idea has apparently been around for years with one of the Virchester consultants telling me that this was first mooted in the early 90’s, before iPhones, EBM or #FOAMed.
