Welcome back to Chakras & Cusswords Podcast. This episode is all about transitioning from nursing burn out to becoming a spiritual mentor. Bio:  Roshni is a heart-led community connector & compassion-driven nurse dedicated to empowering others to integrate into their whole selves. As a Critical Care nurse on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, the emotional & physical fatigue of facing death and fear head continues to be unpacked. She has spent the past year collecting stories from the frontlines to capture the voices of South Asian American healthcare workers mental & spiritual impact of the trauma stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. On IG @SouthAsiansBehindTheMask, the project aims to understand the unbearingly heavy burden to serve as “heroes”, while suffering from loss, combating stress and striving for survival despite a large gap in mental health & emotional support. Outside of her work at the bedside, Roshni works as a Integration coach supporting clients to deepen the connection of mind-body-spirit through life's unexpected and challenging transitions. You can follow her work on IG, TikTok and twitter @FollowTheRoshni.  The focus for healthcare workers/healing:  A year ago, I was selected by SAADA to curate and create a project around South Asian Americans in Healthcare.(SAADA stands for South Asian American Digital Archive. It is a community-based culture change organization ensuring that South Asian Americans are included in the American story: past, present, and future.) Over the course of the year, I did just that! Interviewing 9 incredible "heroes" from the frontlines, working with my incredible artist friend Meghna to create renderings, my amazing musician friend Nimo to source music and along the way, find space for my own story to find a place in history.  It has been an incredibly humbling and encouraging project and one that I hope continues to grow as more Desi-Americans find the courage to share their own truths. I am so excited for you to finally experience this & as always, am so grateful for your support in all of my endeavors.  SHARE:  I have curated a social media handle on instagram to help others share their own stories. If you or anyone you know are a healthcare worker who worked during COVID (or left because of it) I would love to share a short video or write-up with your own reflection. The instagram handle is @Southasiansbehindthemask . DM or email me for more details.  IMMERSE: I hope you find time to listen to the powerful stories from my incredible interviewees and see double the impact our culture as Desi Americans AND as healthcare workers connects and conflicts with our own personal journeys. Even if you are not South Asian, I hope this glimpse into someone's perspective helps you build your empathy muscle for all of us in the pandemic.

In this episode of The Connected Care Team podcast, Denise Pimintel, Clinical Program Manager at CommonSpirit Telehealth Network System, discusses how the healthcare industry has changed over the years, the value of secure messaging, and how the ongoing pandemic has made virtual care even more vital.Augmenting care with technologyDenise Pimintel has always worked to bridge the gap between clinicians and technology. After serving as an army nurse and ICU nurse for a period of time, Denise went back to school to study health information technology in an effort to help clinicians work more efficiently. She has worked with the CommonSpirit Telehealth Network for the past eight years using technology to connect patients with providers."My desire has always been to bridge clinical folks with technology, to do our jobs more efficiently and to do a better job for the patients that we serve." – Denise PimintelThe impact of secure messaging CommonSpirit implemented TigerConnect to incorporate secure messaging into clinical workflows. Denise says the move has been a game-changer in reaching clinicians and coordinating patient care. Since the clinician receiving the message can read it at their convenience, important conversations don't get interrupted or lost. Additionally, users can set up escalation rules if a message remains unread after a certain length of time. This allows the sending clinician to know the status of the message and removes barriers to collaboration."The message gets sent at the convenience of the person sending, and when it comes to the recipient, the recipient can choose to either look immediately, delay that look because he's in the middle of a conversation with somebody else, or pick it up, pass it on to somebody else if we have rules in it to escalate, if he hasn't looked at it in 5 minutes." – Denise PimintelEfficient critical care workflowsIt isn't just about getting things done quickly but about doing them well. Denise uses TigerConnect in the workflows in her critical care area, enabling experts to reach patients within one or two minutes. This means that the patients get better care, and the nurses can see more patients. She even has the ability to notify code teams simultaneously. "In the critical care area, definitely, you know, response times of providers to the bedside have significantly increased or I should say decreased, meaning they get there quickly." – Denise Pimintel

A perfect storm has descended on hospital emergency rooms. The shortage of family physicians that was apparent before the pandemic has worsened since COVID-19, with many medical doctors taking early retirement or switching career paths due to exhaustion and burn out. With walk-in clinics now booked up days in advance, many people seeking non-critical medical care are turning to their local hospital's ER. However, once there they quickly discover the chances of seeing a doctor right away are slim. In fact, their wait time could stretch into hours and hours. That's because, like their family practice counterparts, hospital staff – especially ER doctors and nurses – are resigning, retiring, or taking sick leave in record numbers. For many, the deciding factor is the increasing amount of abuse directed their way from frustrated and angry patients spending hours in a crowded waiting room to see a physician.Are there other options than the ER or overbooked family physicians for those with non-critical medical needs? And what's it actually like on the frontlines of healthcare as already-stretched facilities struggle with staff shortages and increasing demand? To find out, host Wayne Cox speaks with two doctors who understand only too well how the shortage of MDs and nurses is leading some people to seek non-emergency medical help in crowded ER departments – where they are faced with lengthy wait times to see a physician: Dr. Rogan Thavarajah, a family physician at Hilltop Medical Clinic and the Board Chair for the White Rock-South Surrey Division of Family Practice Dr. Dan Crompton, head of the Emergency Room at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, B.C. They are joined by Vicki Brydon, Director of Public Relations with the Peace Arch Hospital foundation. Vicki discusses the Foundation's “Use your ER wisely” campaign, an initiative that highlights good alternative options to the emergency room for those seeking non-urgent health care in White Rock and South Surrey.

VIDEOS : WES2022 | Yuval Noah Harari and Vanessa Nakate in conversation (3:19) Why Colleges Are Becoming Cults [Full Series] | Dr. Lyell Asher (15:00 to 43:42 Gary Null Speaking Out at the NYS Assembly Hearing  (25:00)   Astragulus found to inhibit breast cancer cell proliferation Fujian University of Traditional Medicine (China), September 8, 2022 Huang qi (Astragalus) is one of the fundamental herbs in traditional Chinese medicine, with earliest records of its use dating back over 2,000 years ago. Now, a study in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine has found that astragulus is also able to prevent the spread of breast cancer cells in the body. In the study, researchers from the Fujian University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China looked at how astragulus extract can affect breast cancer cells and the process behind this biological effect. They also looked at the primary isoflavones in the extract, as well as its anti-proliferative activity on three breast cancer lines: MCF-7 (ER+), SK-BR-3 (HER2+) and MDA-MB-231 (triple-negative). They did this by exposing these breast cancer cells to the extract for 48 hours. In addition, they examined the effect of astragulus extract on phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate 3-kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (Akt)/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathways, a primary intracellular signaling pathway that contributes to cell proliferation, growth, migration, metabolism, and apoptosis. The results of the study showed that the treatment of astragulus exhibited anti-proliferative activity on breast cancer cells. Furthermore, the therapy promoted the death of breast cancer cells. These suggested that it's ability to inhibit breast cancer cell growth was linked to its ability to inhibit PI3K/Akt/mTOR activity. Moreover, the researchers found that the Huang qi extract contains four types of isoflavones, such as campanulin, ononin, calycosin, and formononetin, which contributed to the inhibitory effect of Huang qi extract on breast cancer cells proliferation. Vitamin D supplementation could help critically ill patients University Hospital Würzburg (Germany) September 12 2022. Findings from a review and meta-analysis reported in Critical Care suggest that providing critically ill patients with vitamin D supplements may improve some clinical outcomes, including survival. “Upon ICU admission, the majority of patients have significantly reduced 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels, which remain significantly reduced over the entire ICU length of stay,” Johannes Menger and colleagues wrote. “In these patients, significantly reduced vitamin D (25-hydroxyvitamin D) serum levels are frequent and independently associated with higher incidence and severity of sepsis.” Sixteen randomized, controlled trials that evaluated vitamin D supplementation's association with mortality were identified. Vitamin D supplementation was associated with a 22% lower risk of overall mortality in comparison with a placebo or standard care. Among studies that reported 28-day mortality, vitamin D supplementation was associated with a trend toward lower a lower risk. Receiving vitamin D by injection or intravenously had the strongest effect. Patients who received vitamin D spent an average of 3.13 days less in the ICU and 5 fewer days on a ventilator than those who received a placebo. “The results of this systematic review and meta-analysis suggest that vitamin D supplementation may be associated with reduced overall mortality in critically ill patients,” they concluded. Natural compound could reduce breast cancer risk in some women Luteolin may inhibit growth of human breast cancer cells in postmenopausal women taking hormone replacement therapy University of Missouri-Columbia, September 9, 2022 More than 100 women die from breast cancer every day in the United States. The odds increase in postmenopausal women who have taken a combined estrogen and progestin hormone replacement therapy; these women also have an increased risk of developing progestin-accelerated breast tumors. Now, University of Missouri researchers have found that luteolin, a natural compound found in herbs such as thyme and parsley as well as vegetables such as celery and broccoli, could reduce the cancer risk for women who have taken hormone replacement therapy. “Most older women normally have benign lesions in breast tissue,” Hyder said. “These lesions typically don't form tumors until they receive the ‘trigger'– in this case, progestin–that attracts blood vessels to cells essentially feeding the lesions causing them to expand.” His newest study shows that when the supplement luteolin is administered to human breast cancer cells in the lab, benefits can be observed including the reduction of those vessels “feeding” the cancer cells causing cancer cell death. Hyder's lab has found that as human breast cancer cells develop, they tend to take on stem cell-like properties, which can make them harder to kill. Here, luteolin was used to monitor stem cell-like characteristics of breast cancer cells and his team saw a vast reduction in this phenomenon, further proving that the natural compound exerts its anti-tumor effects in a variety of ways. “We feel that luteolin can be effective when injected directly into the bloodstream, so IV supplements may still be a possibility,” Hyder said. “But, until the supplement is tested for safety and commercialized, which we hope will happen after further testing and clinical trials, women should continue consuming a healthy diet with fresh fruits and vegetables.” CBD shows health benefits in estrogen-deficient mice that model postmenopause Rutgers University, September 14, 2022 A Rutgers study points to cannabidiol (CBD), a major component of hemp and medical marijuana used to treat conditions such as chronic pain, inflammation, migraines, epilepsy, autoimmune diseases, depression, and anxiety, as a possible treatment for postmenopausal women whose ovaries no longer make estrogen. In a study published in Frontiers in Pharmacology, scientists reported that when estrogen-deficient mice were fed CBD, a non-intoxicating compound extracted from hemp, they showed marked improvement in several areas. Their bloodstreams more readily disposed of glucose, and they burned more energy. In addition, their bone density improved, they had less inflammation in gut and bone tissues and they possessed higher levels of beneficial gut bacteria. “This preclinical study is the first to suggest the therapeutic potential of CBD for alleviating symptoms of estrogen deficiency,” said Diana Roopchand, an assistant professor in the Department of Food Science of the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) and senior author on the study. “There is much anecdotal evidence of CBD's health benefits for menopausal and postmenopausal women, but our study is the first to investigate some of the claims in an established preclinical model of postmenopause.” Over 18 weeks, researchers fed the estrogen-deficient mice a steady diet of either tiny, CBD-laced peanut butter balls or peanut butter balls without CBD. The untreated estrogen-deficient mice developed symptoms that resembled those of postmenopausal human females, such as metabolic dysfunction, evidence of inflammation, lower bone density, and lower levels of beneficial gut bacteria. However, in mice that ingested CBD, these conditions were significantly improved. Mediterranean diet and depression among older individuals Harokopio University (Greece), September 9, 2022 According to news originating from Athens, Greece,research stated, “In Europe, depression is one of the most frequent mental disorders across all age groups, but particularly in people aged 65 years and over, and higher depressive symptoms have been reported among individuals with chronic diseases (e.g., diabetes and heart disease).” Research from Harokopio University stated, “To evaluate the role of adherence to the Mediterranean diet (MedDiet) in depression in a sample of older people living in the Mediterranean basin. Standard procedures were used to determine socio-demographic, lifestyle, and clinical characteristics of the participants, as well as their dietary habits, and depressive symptoms were evaluated using the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS). Participants classified as having mild or severe depression were less educated and physically active, and more diabetic, and they reported less adherence to the MedDiet. Adherence to the MedDiet was associated with the absence of depression [(OR, 95% CI): 0.65, 0.50 – 0.85]. In addition, daily tea drinking was also related to the absence of depression [(OR, 95% CI): 0.51, 0.40 – 0.65].” According to the news editors, the research concluded: “Greater adherence to the MedDiet and daily tea drinking seem to have a beneficial effect on depressive symptoms in older adults.” High cholesterol leads to long-term liver scarring and immune cell dysfunction in lab study University of Southern California, September 15, 2022 There's a long-established link between a high-fat, high-sugar diet and fatty liver disease, which can lead to life-threatening conditions such as cirrhosis and liver cancer. Now, new research from the Keck School of Medicine of USC adds some detail and dimension to this picture. The lab study, published in Frontiers in Immunology, is the first-ever to focus on how different amounts of cholesterol as part of a diet high in fat and sugar affect fatty liver disease progression. Modeling the disease in mice, the investigators demonstrated that high cholesterol intake can make fatty liver disease worse—driving inflammation and scarring—and that, importantly, scar tissuecan persist even after switching to a diet low in cholesterol. The findings also indicated that a high-cholesterol diet can create long-lasting dysfunction in a specific population of immune cells previously shown to play a role in fatty liver disease. “We saw that you may have a high-fat and high-sugar diet, but when you add high cholesterol to that, it will accelerate the process that causes inflammation in your liver,” said corresponding author Ana Maretti-Mira, Ph.D., an assistant research professor of medicine at USC. “People focus on high cholesterol as a risk for heart disease, but we showed that your liver may also be affected, causing inflammation, scarring and, potentially, cirrhosis.” High cholesterol makes fatty liver disease worse The researchers fed mice a high-fat, high-sugar diet shown to cause a form of advanced fatty liver disease similar to human illness. The mice were split into three groups that received different amounts of cholesterol in their food for 20 weeks—midlife for the animals. The low-cholesterol group received one-quarter the cholesterol compared to medium; the high-cholesterol group received 25 times more than the low-cholesterol group. After 20 weeks, the livers of mice from all three groups showed accumulation of fat, a benign feature of fatty liver disease, but the high-cholesterol group had more advanced disease, with increased inflammation and scar tissue. For the following 10 weeks, mice from all three groups received low cholesterol as part of a diet that remained high in fat and sugar. At the end of that time, that change in diet had reversed inflammation in the original high-cholesterol mice, but had not reduced scar tissue. This finding shows that damage caused by high cholesterol can be hard to undo. The high-fat, high-sugar diet given to mice in the study has unfortunate similarities to the typical Western diet in humans. “Our daily diet has lots of carbohydrates, such as sugary drinks, bread, rice and pasta,” Maretti-Mira said. “Then there's high fat, since everybody likes deep fried foods. At the same time, we don't have the same active life we used to, so we end up eating much more than our body needs.”

Jesus always responded to difficult people and situations by giving us a holy, humble example. He was persistently criticized by people like Pharisees, who unfairly accused Him of blasphemy, sedition and disobeying the Law, but He met that with calm, gracious and wise statements centered on the Truth. None of us likes to be criticized, but when we are, we have to look at ourselves first, to assess how true it is, and if it's a result of our critical spirit. Then, we have to look at the source of criticism, with love and grace, because if it is someone who is hurting or under conviction, our humble reaction may provide the opportunity for them to have a spiritual breakthrough.

Want to stay inspired with content tailored specifically to IMG's looking to create their medical success story? Sign up for the IMG Roadmap Newsletter so you never miss a beat! ***** Have you ever wondered what exactly program directors are looking for when reviewing residency applications from IMGs? Do you also one day see yourself as a program director? Dr. Amira Mohamed is here today to share some valuable insight. Keep listening to learn more about her fascinating journey! After finishing medical school in Khartoum, Sudan where she was born and raised, Dr. Mohamed made the bold decision to start pursuing medical residency in the US. Here's how she managed to navigate through the process and some of the highlights of her journey: Since she didn't know the pathway, she took a year off and did a lot of her own research. During that year, she moved to the US and did a Step One prep course in Washington DC. She eventually landed a job as a medical assistant for a gastroenterologist at Howard University hospital, while studying for exams. Finally, she scored a 3 year internal medicine residency, then a 2 year critical care fellowship. She was an attending physician for a few years, before transitioning into being an associate program director and then a program director. Right now she works in the Bronx, New York at the Montefiore Medical Center which is a part of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. There, she serves as a critical care medicine fellowship program director. Dr. Mohamed also works with the residency program of her institution as part of the clinical competency committee and at the adjoint medical school as a teacher. Therefore, while she primarily works with fellows, she also works with residents and students. As a program director, here is some of the advice that Dr. Mohamed has for IMGs: Letters of recommendation should be written by someone who knows you and can highlight your good qualities. These letters should also be geared towards your intended specialty. Speak to people who have been down your intended path and heed their relevant advice to make your journey easier. If you can, avoid applying to multiple specialties - if you have to, ensure that you show priority to the specialty you're most passionate about. Apply on time--if you have to be late, send an email explaining the situation. Take the time to plan your interview cycle carefully—place the programs that you are most interested in, last. That way you can overcome any early interview jitters with lower stakes. Be careful about the questions you ask. Ensure that your questions demonstrate your interest in the field and willingness to commit. Know your audience! Have a post-residency plan – what educational, research and other CV building opportunities does your residency have that you can take advantage of? Networking is key! Go up to the people you admire and ask them how they did it! As a program director she loves when candidates show initiative and go the extra mile. Don't hesitate to reach out to programs to show your interest! If you have any further questions, you can reach out to Dr. Mohamed via twitter @amiramohamedmd.

Because medication errors account for a great number of patient deaths, a legal nurse consultant needs to be diligent in detecting their possible role in a medical malpractice case. Christine Dorman, critical care nurse practitioner, legal nurse consultant, and expert witness, shares with us her expertise in this area. After going through some basic clues that suggest medication errors, she goes into more detail. The administration of sedatives and paralytics requires close attention, as this is an area where errors may occur. Cardiac medication administration is another problematic area that calls for examination. For those who miss hand-written records, Christine emphasizes the value of electronic records for their programmed ability to detect a medication error. The biggest problem, though, is understaffing of personnel. Although the level of stress may have gone down from the height of the COVID pandemic, hospitals are still feeling the repercussions, especially since highly skilled personnel have retired or changed jobs due to burnout. Lack of communication can aggravate the situation, and Christine emphasizes the importance of accurately communicating essential information. Christine's ability to communicate her expertise makes this podcast highly informative and valuable. Be sure to take the opportunity to learn from her. Join me in this episode of Legal Nurse Podcast to learn about Catastrophic Critical Care Medication Errors - Christine Dorman What are clues that a medication error may have occurred in a patient's treatment? Why should special attention be paid to the administration of sedatives or paralytics? How do staffing shortages, such as occurred at the height of the pandemic, affect nursing care?

The modern CICU has evolved to include patients with complex pulmonary mechanics requiring more non-invasive and mechanical ventilation. Series co-chairs Dr. Eunice Dugan and Dr. Karan Desai along with CardioNerds Co-founder Dr. Amit Goyal were joined by FIT lead, Dr. Sam Brusca, who has completed his NIH Critical Care and UCSF Cardiology fellow and currently faculty at USCF. We were fortunate enough to have two expert discussants: Dr. Burton Lee, Head of Medical Education and Global Critical Care within the National Institutes of Health Critical Care Medicine Department and master clinician educator with the ATS Scholar's Critical Care for Non-Intensivists program, and Dr. Chris Barnett, ACC Critical Care Cardiology council member and Section Chair of Critical Care Cardiology at UCSF.  In this episode, these experts discuss the basics of mechanical ventilation, including the physiology/pathophysiology of negative and positive pressure breathing, a review of ventilator modes, and a framework for outlining the goals of mechanical ventilation. They proceed to apply these principles to patients in the CICU, specifically focusing on patients with RV predominant failure due to pulmonary hypertension and patients with LV predominant failure.

Pearls and Quotes - Positive Pressure Ventilation in the CICU Respiratory distress, during spontaneous negative pressure breathing can lead to high transpulmonary pressures and potentially large tidal volumes. This will increase both RV afterload (by increasing pulmonary vascular resistance) and LV afterload (by increasing LV wall stress). An analogy for the impact of negative pleural pressure during spontaneous respiration on LV function is that of a person jumping over a hurdle. The height of the hurdle does not increase, but the ground starts to sink, so it is still harder to jump over. Intubation in patients with right ventricular failure is a tenuous situation, especially in patients with chronic RV failure and remodeling (increased RV thickness, perfusion predominantly during diastole, RV pressure near or higher than systemic pressure). The key tenant to safe intubation is avoiding hypotension, utilizing induction agents such as ketamine or etomidate, infusing pressors, and potentially even performing awake intubations. Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation in HFrEF has hemodynamic effects similar to a cocktail of IV inotropes, dilators, and diuretics. CPAP decreases pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (LV preload), decreases systemic vascular resistance (afterload), and increases cardiac output. Airway pressure during mechanical ventilation is based on the “equation of motion”: Pressure = Volume/Compliance + Flow*Resistance + PEEP. Our goals of oxygenation on mechanical ventilation include achieving acceptable PaO2/Sat with the lowest FiO2 possible (avoiding oxygen toxicity) and optimal PEEP (which increases oxygenation but can have detrimental impact on cardiac output) Our goals of ventilation on mechanical ventilation include achieving acceptable pH and PaCO2 while preventing ventilator induced lung injury and avoiding auto-PEEP.

Women have traditionally been ignored in sleep medicine (shocking, we know). That means our sleep issues can be misunderstood and misdiagnosed, especially during menopause when sleep disruptions rise. This week we investigate how hormones and menopausal symptoms impact sleep, as well as dive into sleep issues like sleep apnea (which shows up differently in women), restless leg syndrome, hypervigilance, and more with Dr. Andrea Matsumura, a holistic sleep medicine physician and a partner at the Oregon Clinic in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine.   Dr. Matsumura's personal passion is helping women and women athletes understand their sleep and its key role in personal health, wellness, and performance. She has been the guest speaker for The American Academy of Sleep Medicine, numerous podcasts, and has been quoted in myriad articles about sleep and wellness.
