Síndrome do túnel do carpo é uma condição que cria dormência e formigamento na palma da mão do polegar para os dedos anelares. Ocorre quando um nervo do lado da palma da mão é comprimido ou irritado de alguma forma. Muitas vezes, uma combinação de fatores de risco contribui para o desenvolvimento da doença, que tende a criar sintomas iniciais à noite. Várias opções de tratamento estão disponíveis para aliviar formigamento e dormência, e restaurar a função do pulso e da mão. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that creates numbness and tingling in your palm from the thumb to ring fingers. It occurs when a nerve on the palm side of the hand is compressed or irritated in some way. Often, a combination of risk factors contributes to the development of the condition, which tends to create initial symptoms at night. Several treatment options are available to relieve tingling and numbness, and restore wrist and hand function. #neurocirurgia#neurosurgery#neurologia#neurology#medicina#medicine#radiologia#radiology#medlife#medstudent#medicoresidente#medicalresident
This is the story of how a young female doctor started using a reusable water bottle. Prepare to be amused.
• • •
It was my first month working in the medical intensive care unit (ICU). I was working a month of chaotic, highly stressful 12-hour shifts, 6 days a week. Every hour of every day it seemed like there was something urgent to attend to. I wasn't drinking enough water & I wasn't allowing myself to go to the restroom. So I ended up with my first urinary tract infection during my ICU month and was absolutely miserable. (Little did I know that getting a UTI during your first ICU month is practically a right of passage.)
My first reusable bottle was a Camelback plastic bottle with a silicone spout which was fraught with problems. For one, I couldn't clean the spout or straw well - it was only a matter of time before it would make me sick. Then I made the horrifying mistake of opening the spout on an airplane, causing it to squirt water EVERWHERE & the man two seats down from me to give me the side eye. Needless to say that was the last time I used it.
For many months until now I used a mason jar for water, iced coffee, & especially matcha tea. But after someone jokingly said my matcha tea looked like "bile juice," I decided I'd rather people not see what I'm drinking.
After spying this elegant, marble S'well bottle on another zerowaster's Instagram page, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. It's wide-mouthed so easy to clean (& wouldn't cause me problems in a plane), stainless steel so keeps my beverages cold or hot for hours, & the best part is that it was on sale!!

Do you have an interesting story to share about your reusable bottle?
Para empezar, está es MI OPINIÓN PERSONAL y cada uno hace de su vaso lo que quiera.
Si, yo me presenté al libre de SM después de haber tenido 3 años de psicología en el secundario y de haber cursado la materia y dada de baja por problemas personales. Me desaprobaron diciéndome 'no aprobamos a nadie que se presente libre.' Fin de la historia.
Muchos me preguntaron por el libre de HyE. Primero, yo no les puedo decir mucho porque YO PREFERÍ RECURSARLA.
Hice una autocrítica y dejé mi orgullo de lado. Me había organizado mal, había estudiado mal y había cosas que eran fundamentales que nunca entendí. En la recursada aprendí. Aprendí muchísimo más allá de lo curricular; como organizarme con la cursada, con los exámenes, qué técnicas me servían, que no. Huesitos es lo que es por esa recursada. ¿Me separé de mis amigos? Si y no. Ellos están más avanzados pero nos seguimos juntando a estudiar y dándonos apoyo.
Yo preferí """""perder un año""""" (dejen de usar está frase por que me violenta) y aprender en todo lo que fallé. Así que si esta es tu primera recordada, YO te recomiendo que te animes a recursarla. Pero vuelvo a repetir, hace de tu vaso una flor si queres.
Hay cosas de histologia y de biología celular que las vas a volver a ver en otras materias más adelante. Conozco gente que fue bochada por no saber cosas de primero. Patología es histo pero con cosas amorfas y horribles. En pato marcar algo normal como patológico o viceversa, es un error bastante grosero.
Pero vuelvo a decirlo, de tu culo, una flor. Yo no me meto, no soy quién.
'Es mi quinta recursada' y todas esas respuestas que me mandaron. No estoy diciendo que el libre no deba existir. Si tiene que existir, tiene que ser una instancia con posibilidad de aprobable poniendo el culo en la silla y los sesos a procesar. El libre da posibilidad de seguir avanzando a un montón de gente. No estoy diciendo que no. .

썸띵 프뤠쉬한게 필요해서 ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 그냥 떠나버림~
#장성#백양사#당일치기#단풍놀이 는 무슨... 1년 일찍 가버려서 나무가 아직 앙상하더라 ㅠㅠ
스님한테 감도 받고, #정읍식당 상 휘게 밥먹고, 카페가서 노가리까다가, #광주 와서 영화까지! 피곤했지만 알차게 재밌게 신선하게 진짜 잘 놀고 온듯! 👍👍👍 Just needed something fresh and new in my the same everyday life in med. 🤩🚗🛣🍁🌄
I’m a proud junior! Many thanks to Mba @dokterpitha for writing this fruitful book, and personally signed it for me. This book represents what most OB/GYN feel about our job, during residency time and also in the real practice life. Makasi ya Mba Pitha buat bukunya, sharing pengalamannya, and for bring back the memories of those (not always) good old times 😂😂😂... Barakallah! #books#bookreview#medicaljourney#obgynlife#doctors#medlife

Girl who used to be paralyzed surprises her nurse! ❤️ #nursesrock
Every week, l am amazed by the infinite potential that technology withholds for the Medical field. This week, the main headline is the new decision stating that wearable glucose monitors will now be made available to tens of thousands more people with type 1 diabetes from April 2019. What is this device you say? Bare with me.. 😉
1️⃣ The Freestyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system was made available on the NHS last November. Recent research however has suggested only 3-5% of type 1 patients in England had access to the monitors on the NHS, when 20-25% were eligible. In England, around 300,000 people have type 1 diabetes. It reduces the need for finger-prick blood tests and helps people with diabetes to manage their condition! 🙀
2️⃣ The glucose monitoring device uses a tiny sensor inserted under the skin of the arm which is connected to a small transmitter patch on the surface of the skin. The sensor reads blood sugar levels from fluid just beneath the skin and transmits them wirelessly to a display on a portable reader held near the sensor! 🥞
3️⃣ ‘Finally, my poor finger tips which bear the scars of thousands of pricks from over the years get a break. Another surprising benefit is that you can easily spot other people with diabetes - making you feel you're not alone dealing with this lifelong condition,’ one of the patients using the device said. The announcement would be welcome news to the many thousands of people with T1DM whose lives will now be changed for the better by access to flash glucose monitoring! 🤓
4️⃣ The Chief Executive of NHS England, said digital health and technology would be at the heart of NHS England's long-term plan. Rolling out these monitors will not only make life more convenient for these patients, but it will save the NHS time and resources by preventing people becoming ill in the first place! ——
5️⃣ I would love to see innovations like these become commonplace in our healthcare system so millions of people across the country stay out of hospital and can get on with their lives. Please do send me links to any innovations you read in the news! 📰
My favorite season of the year 🍂. I love the change of the colors, the sweater weather, and bringing out all my bold lippies💋
My favorite way to soften up a bold lip is to apply the color just to the center of my top and bottom lips, and then blend out the edges. I apply 2-3 layers and love how this creates an ombré effect that is way less intimidating to wear. This also makes the color stay on so much longer. Today’s pick is @tomfordbeauty in #28 Nicholas💋
P.s....the super legit pro-makeup artist tool I use = my pinkie finger 🌝
Guys!!! I started my family medicine rotation this week and wooow it’s just so different from the hectic schedule that I had for obgyn! I really did love my women’s health rotation though - definitely a fave so far. The only downside to my FM rotation is that I have to get up at 5am everyday for an hour commute via train... and I am NOT a morning person.😴 I got to play with liquid nitrogen though and that was pretty cool 🤷🏻♀️ Can’t believe that I’m halfway through clinical year already!
Have you ever gotten a stye? 👁
Styes are red, swollen, sometimes painful bumps on your lid. It happens when bacteria enters an oil gland that lines the base of your eyelashes and causes an infection, kind of like a pimple 🤭.
To get rid of styes, apply warm compresses and gentle lid massages twice a day. It also helps to clean your lashes with baby shampoo. If it doesn’t go away, you might need an antibiotic ointment. A trick for keeping a towel warm is to fill it with rice🍚 and put it in the microwave for 1 minute 😉.
Here is an extremely rare case, where the patient has 3 extra cervical discs. His Cervical disc count should be 7, he has 10! Normally, The disks between the vertebral bodies of the vertebrae serve as a protective cushion, preventing damage to the spine. This, however, is abnormal and likely caused neck and nerve symptoms.
