Medical Residents To Receive Education On Health Effects Of Climate Change

"Teaching doctors about the health effects of climate change is growing from medical schools to the residency programs where new physicians put their skills to the test. But skeptics wonder if it's appropriate for doctors to learn how climate change can affect Human Health Martha Bebinger of member station W. R. in Boston Begins Her story in clinic exam room. I just remember for so many months it was hard for you to walk. There are three people in this exam room doctor Gora. A resident he's training and seventy one year old Steve Kerns who is recovering from West Nile virus, Kerns remembers the mosquito bite on his neck but very little about the brain infection that landed him in the hospital for a week for at least six months after that. I felt like every five minutes I was being run over by a truck I couldn't work. I couldn't walk very well. And I couldn't focus. A wondered for bit if I'd ever get better now, almost two years later Kern says he's back to about five hours a day on the job making windows and doors, and he started reading again the sounds like you've made tremendous progress. Dr. Charlotte Roses is a third year primary care resident at Cambridge Hospital. It seems like tremendous progress. that. It was scary. It was scary. It was it was definitely scary us and I'm not scared anymore although. Can I get worse now over again, Dr seuss sympathizes with the fear West Nile is still rare. There were no cases in Massachusetts before two thousand and two in two, thousand, eighteen year a mosquito bit kerns cases had climbed to forty nine mosquitoes love warm temperatures and so when temperatures increase mosquitoes can have breeding seasons the virus itself West alka replicate faster and they. Bite more more active Basu learned a lot of this while treating, Kerns. He was buses i West Nile case when someone comes in with a fever and his confused, it's not what my mind thinks of as the diagnosis right away. This case has really taught me how much I need to be informed about the ways in which climate change is changing the patterns of infectious. Disease. Around the United States to inform his residence busu added the health impacts of climate change to an elective courses teaches Ross says residents need much more. This is something that needs to be more directly integrated into the curriculum because I think it's going to have such a huge impact on human health. There are no approved curricula for hospitals that might want to tell emerging. Lung specialists about longer pollen seasons as temperatures rise or teach new emergency room physicians to consider more waterborne diseases for patients with fever and diarrhea. But Pediatrician Rebecca Phillips born at Emory University has just published. A framework hospitals can use as a starting point. Patients want physicians to be able to provide guidance on things that affect their individual help. We have this accumulating body of. That climate change does just that it poses harms to our patients Dr Stanley Goldfarb, the former associate dean for curriculum at the University of Pennsylvania's medical school says hospitals trained doctors not. He worries that discussing climate change with patients might create mistrust I. Think there are concerns about getting into the political sphere because I'm against anything that's going to. represent a barrier between patients and physicians being comfortable with each other other physicians. See Wildfires, sweeping western states and hurricanes flooding the Gulf coast and say, we want to impart this information to our residents as fast as we can because it's so important that they gain this information sooner than later advocates say including climate change in residency training won't stick and tell doctors are tested on the health effects before they are licensed to practice medicine for NPR news I'm Martha Bebinger in Boston.

How do we avoid the dreaded second (third or fourth) coronavirus wave?

How do we avoid the dreaded second (third or fourth) coronavirus wave?

"Are we going to mitigate the risk of the current health and financial crisis happening again if carbon does cape returning over and over again? Is there anything we can do to avoid it? Look the best thing. It depends on which country you're in. It's going to be very hard and countries where there's a lot of corona virus like the United States European countries. That it will there will be waves. Coming back was going to be very hard to get rid of it altogether. And what that means is you've got to get to a point where either you've opened up the economy and you've accepted the fact. There's going to be a lot of deaths ongoing or your country Australia or New Zealand. Hopefully some of the Asian countries like Taiwan maybe Singapore. And get back to this point. Where you've got very few cases in the community in which case you can slowly open up the economy with lots of testing lots of contact tracing lots of and very strict isolation and quarantine and in that way. One would hope that you're going to get on top of each outbreak and not have to close down the economy again. So that's why everybody talks about testing testing testing testing. Because testing is once. You've got it down to very low levels. Testing AND JUMPING ON OUTBREAKS. Is the way you control it and stop having to keep on returning over and over again? What we talked about the other day was slightly artificial but if it does disappear it could keep coming back in terms of depending on how long the immunity is and that. Hopefully we don't get to that point because we'll get a vaccine or we'll get treatment which means when it does come back we can treated effectively. That actually brings me to the next question from an audience. About someone's asking you spoke about the virus may be coming back again and again. They're saying where does it come back from? Where is it hiding out? Really good question. Well it would be that. It slowly is circulating under the radar in the community where people are getting very mild symptoms children or young people and they think just the common cold and not necessarily getting tested for it as they are are. It may come in from overseas when you're let down the borders. There's lots of places in come from and assumes in that situation that you've got a degree of immunity in the population and it's under control and that immunity in goes away so again. That discussion is a bit more for places like New York and is restricted where they may have a bit more immunity but even after this epidemic in places like New York dies down even if it's forty percent of people who've been infected and still unknown. That's still not high enough to prevent returns of return of the virus so it was very much theoretical that if we actually got to a degree either. Fu flattening the curve and slow infection of the community to a point of reasonable haired immunity. You could get it still circulating around. You would notice it very much. But then when immunity dies and the rest of the population goes away it surges bank. Another question from the audience. Someone asking we've talked about the second week crash a couple of times. What is it that causes our immune system to become hyperactive in the second week of the illness? In some people. If only we knew don't really understand why that happens in influenza can happen in young people and in pregnant women and in this condition it happens in older people and it is simply the immunes. It's not simple at all. Actually but the immune system does return and very aggressively and interestingly the more that's discovered about what happens in severe disease with Colvin nineteen the more complicated it becomes. It's more than just an immune reaction turns out. There's a clotting reaction where you get blood clots in the lungs. You get blood clots in the fingers. It's a clotting diseases well and they're giving blood thinners to people with covered. Nineteen you other responses in organs it turns out to be really complicated and nobody fully understands it and some people are worried because it is so complicated. That just giving drivers like maybe hydroxy chloroquine or other immune suppressants. You might still not help it because it might be something else going on as well. I think one of the things about Kobe. Nineteen to remember is just how new it is. It's like it's we just white now. What the long term effects are for such a long time. Well that's right and right at the beginning of Corona cast. We were asking a lot of questions about had long term effects and what we did when we spoke about. This feels like three years ago. But it's only a few weeks ago is we say when when you look at SARS one. Two Thousand and two people did not seem to have long-term effects that does not seem to be the case with covered nineteen. There are some people who recover completely. There's some people who take a long time to recover new notice. Boris Johnson doesn't you is taking a long time to recover. There are some people in whom they get a brain infection and it affects the way they think. And there's some people where it damages heart so this is not a benign disease either in the short term Orange

"Ginny. Federal Vic talked with WW. Jay's Laura banal about making the movie that is now showing in imagine theaters. The fact that this is a legacy piece, and it's such an important story in Detroit sports history. Jane, I wanted to do it. Right. We wanted to take the time and make sure that it was done the right way. And that would honor everyone. So. Yeah. These things take time and to me the biggest lesson I learned was you need to surround yourself with the right team. And I think it's sort of a meta thing from the film itself. But it wasn't until Jenny got involved in some other people in our production. Dan, Millstein Steve Bannon Jason wailing, David Fabella. Like, that's when the film really went from this potential. To what people will see this weekend. You know, we're faced a lot of it from the fans exactly what you're saying. When it was when this is gonna be out how long does it take. It takes a lot of time to make a film. There's so many intricate parts in its patience. It seeing the project through it was an extremely difficult and challenging journey when you think of all the pieces were filmed in Canada were filmed in Moscow with filmed all over the place. We've been all over the world. And then there's pieces of information that took time. I mean, beautiful things take time to make. And this was one of those things that's beautiful and people are going to really see that took the Redwings. Forty two years to finally win the Stanley Cup in seven years to make the story. I don't think it's too bad. That's great. And the next thing. I was going to ask you is. Because you know, I feel so proud of whatever it is a good story. That's even a minute longer.

Remember what the Russian five men to the city because it's been a while. And when Sergei laugh there was no fans had difficult feelings. But hopefully, this movie will remind them of what he meant to the franchise. Yeah. I just want people enjoy it. Yeah. And enjoy it in theaters. I think it's important message. You gotta see it with other fans you've got to see it together. It's like a communal thing. Sure. We'll be streaming. Everybody wants to know if we're going street, and we're gonna stream, but this is something you gotta see with other Red Wings fans. It's going to be a completely different experience guman jersey. And if you can briefly just tell me what the what the film because I have not seen it yet. What the film takes you through from Wenda win. You know? So the film basically takes you from one Mike you bought the Detroit Red Wings in nineteen eighty-two as the dead wings in sort of this huge undertaking of how do we make them competitive?

The two dopamine d two antagonists hell appear dull and surprised on used in. This study are commonly used in patients who exhibit agitated and potentially injurious behavior in the ICU such as intentionally or inadvertently removing Endo tracheal and gastric tubes.

Placebo in the management of acute hypoactive or hyperactive delirium, the editorial, I would still consider using dopamine antagonists in patients at imminent risk of injurious behaviors. But he would have less confidence in their benefits than he had in the past. Why did the trial failed to show benefit? It is likely that our concept of delirium is flawed. The neuro chemistry of sudden alteration in Mente Shen is complex and involves several neuro transmitters as well as structural immunologic and network alterations and possible brain infection that is not clinically evident. The investigators deserve credit for conducting difficult trial. But it would have been astounding if there were a single magic bullet for the restitution of normal brain function in ICU patients with delirium. It brute nib regimens versus chemo.

"WG Y. Welcome back to male Clinic Radio. I'm Dr Jake Schramm, and I'm Tracy McCray. Infections are a normal part of childhood, according to the American Academy pediatrics most children will have six to eight respiratory infections. Each year. These include colds ear infections, sinus infections bronchitis and ammonia infections that caused diarrhea and vomiting are also very common. Any parent can tell you some of the best kind. Absolutely. When children are together in close quarters such as a child care setting or in school infections are more easily spread from one child to another. So how can we help our kids? Avoid those nasty bugs that are going around here to discuss kids infections in what to do about them. As mayo clinic infectious disease specialist Roger poxy. Welcome back to the program. Dr Roger poxy. It's great to have you here. Thanks for having me both Dr stranded. I kids in daycare minor, no longer in daycare, minor almost here. I think it's the best thing ever because they have gotten all those bugs out of their system. And my kids have not been sick ever since they were in daycare, and my imagining that or is that for real so kids are exposed to a lot of different types of infections in daycare for sure. And by virtue of that parents are often exposed to a lot of infections during that phase of life as well. I'm so there are many infections when you get infected with them once you develop some level of immunity to them. And so it does kind of help to stimulate a child's immune system to be exposed to all those impacts not imagining it. No, it doesn't make it less of frustrating. I mean, I guess one of the things I'm curious about are what are those? What are the most common infections that kids are getting things that circulate during different times of year by far the most common infection? I would be the common cold, which we see kind of happen year round common cold is caused by variety of different viruses, actually for one hundred different viruses. And that's why it is so common as I mentioned, you can get some level of immunity to things you've been exposed to in the past. When there's so many different viruses out there, and there's a lot of different things that can circulate it in different places and over time. What is the difference between a viral and bacterial infection because the only reason it makes a difference? As far as I'm concerned as a parent is do they get anti-biotics or not? That's kind of one of the important. Distinguishing features so viruses are tiny microscopic particles that we can't see they can cause a whole variety of different types of infections. Some mild like the common cold, but also more serious things like brain infections. As well. And so there's a large spectrum of diseases that we see caused by viruses. Bacteria are also microscopic. So can't see them with the naked eye and they can cause variety of infections ranging from harmless to quite serious and harmful sometimes even leading to death. And so the main thing when it comes to treatment is whether or not they will respond to antibiotics are viruses. Do not respond to antibiotics only bacterial infections do and as we're learning more and more about some of the harmful effects of antibiotics and running into more and more problems with antibiotic resistance that differentiation becomes more and more important. Do you think it's the case because I hear this from fellow parents and family members that it it seems more and more. We're hearing about the problems of over prescription of antibiotics is that because kids are generally getting more commonly viral infections would that be a fair statement or is that overstating it? So we do see a lot of antibiotic prescriptions being written for things that are viral infections and for which there are no benefits. It's one of the biggest drivers of. The over prescribing of antibiotics it can be challenging in some situations. When you have a patient in front of you to say for sure whether it's virus or bacteria kids are exposed to both frequently during childhood, but we really want to get away from using antibiotics in kids who have a viral syndrome or viral infection. Just because it's of no benefit to them. And can cause harm our parents not surprised by that as much as they used to be. Yeah, I think now parents have access to so much information. I think a lot of them are very aware about the issues of our resistance, and some of the impact of antibiotics on things like, for example, the microbiome. So we know that our body is made up of all sorts of good bacteria. And when you give someone antibiotics along with wiping out harmful bacteria, you also wipe out some of the good bacteria. And so now, I'm hearing a lot more from parents who are saying does my child really need an antibiotic for this more so than in the past coming in and sometimes asking or demanding from doctor to have an antibiotic for their child. And so I think I'm all this new information and knowledge that we're getting. We're starting to kind of see the tides change about it. Well, and I and I think that leads to the next question. So if you don't get antibiotics because a lot of these syndromes are potentially viral what sort of things can you do to help kids get healthy? And and how do you help keep them from spreading and other kids, Jerry? That's a great question. Kids can feel very miserable and they have a viral infection. It's not like just because it's a virus. It's just a mild infection, and they necessarily feel fine. But there are a lot of things that we can advise that can help them feel better. One of the things is using medications.
