ECG Interpretation - ECG Nomenclature

http://www.acadoodle.com In this video we review the nomenclature of the ECG readout. You will learn that the deflection produced by atrial depolarisation is termed a P wave while ventricular depolarisation produces the qrs complex. You will also learn the correct nomenclature of individual deflections within the qrs complex and some important terms used in ECG analysis.

ECG Interpretation - ECG Lead Perspectives

http://www.acadoodle.com The different leads of the ECG examine cardiac electrical activity from different perspectives. In this video we teach you the perspectives of the 12 ECG leads on cardiac depolarosiation and repolarisation. We consider the 12 leads in two groups of six, with the six chest leads (V1-V6, also referred to as the precordial leads) examining the flow of cardiac depolarisation and repolarisation in the horizontal plan and a second group of six leads (the standard leads and augmented leads) which examine these events in the vertical plane. For the experienced practitioner, looking at different areas on the ECG readout is like looking at different anatomical regions of the heart. Also, understanding the lead perspectives is crucial in the interpretation of cardiac arrhythmias.

Medical Professionalism in the New Millennium: A Physician Charter

The charter is the product of several years of work by leaders in the ABIM Foundation, the ACP–ASIM Foundation, and the European Federation of Internal Medicine. The charter consists of a brief introduction and rationale, three principles, and 10 commitments. The introduction contains the following premise: Changes in the health care delivery systems in countries throughout the industrialized world threaten the values of professionalism. The document conveys this message with chilling brevity. The authors apparently feel no need to defend this premise, perhaps because they believe that it is a universally held truth. The authors go further, stating that the conditions of medical practice are tempting physicians to abandon their commitment to the primacy of patient welfare. These are very strong words. Whether they are strictly true for the profession as a whole is almost beside the point. Each physician must decide if the circumstances of practice are threatening his or her adherence to the values that the medical profession has held dear for many millennia.

Top 8 reasons you should marry a female physician

A couple of years ago, I asked a friend of mine how she met her husband.  It was at a bar, and when she asked his occupation he replied, “I work for the city.”  She took that to mean he was a construction worker.  They began dating and quickly fell in love.  Much to her…

Guest Blogpost for: Progressive collaborative refinement on teams: implications for communication practices

This article demonstrates the importance of oral and written communication between members of medical teaching teams in a busy teaching hospital. The authors have made excellent use of genre theory to examine the challenges facing senior and junior doctors, attending physicians and medical students as they share patient care while working in a complex hospital environment. These challenges included fragmented continuity of care due to regular staff rotations and shift work, compounded by time constraints and patients with complex healthcare needs. Communications broke down on many occasions, at times affecting patient care, and the authors provide useful recommendations for reform and further research.

Kevin's Take | KevinMD.com

Esteemed physician social media leader Bryan Vartabedian argues that all doctors are public physicians. It's really not a choice. So what's the best way to establish that public presence?  Create content online using social media, of course. Two of the best ways is to write articles on blogs and create videos on YouTube.  These pieces of social media will contribute to your digital footprint, and likely will be found if patients Google you.   If the content ...Read more...

The end of life

Increasingly, US physicians face legal risks for doing too much or too little to help patients with end of life issues. On one hand, doctors are under more pressure to hold discussions with people who are diagnosed with terminal illnesses—exploring whether they would want to stop treatment if it became ineffective. In that case, the patient would shift to palliative care, which involves pain medications and other therapies to enhance quality of life.

The team physician

This week, the BMJ publishes an interview with Jonathan Drezner, the team doctor for the Seattle Seahawks, winners of this year’s Super Bowl (doi:10.1136/bmj.g1745). The interview gives us a behind the scenes glimpse at an exciting yet uncommon career path for a physician. As a team doctor, Drezner’s practice is a mixture of a “non-operative musculoskeletal specialist” and a primary care doctor. One of his major responsibilities is to evaluate players for concussions and determine suitability for play.

Climate change is a health emergency

It’s nearly 30 years since Eric Chivian and three other Harvard faculty members won the Nobel peace prize for their work as founders of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War. At its height IPPNW had a membership of 250 000 doctors from 80 countries. Its leaders spoke directly to the world’s leaders and to the public, helping them to understand the terrible things that happen to people’s bodies and lives when nuclear bombs explode. As Chivian says in a BMJ essay this week, the aim was to help people grasp what a nuclear war would really be like, so that politicians and the public would do everything in their power to prevent such a war from happening (doi:10.1136/bmj.g2407).
