Part 1
The Drumf lip-syncing is fantastic!

Part 2
The lyrics, and the greatly increased clarity of the vocal part (and sub-titles) in this version are great enhancements. I had missed a lot before, and lyrics are usually my primary concern.

Couple of sobering dispatches from the US front lines by doctors in this mini-discussion over on NC today. The main one is aimed at fellow MDs:

I offer this for the edification of “herd immunity“ proponents and the disconcertion of the rest of us, from an ER doctor in New Orleans...

Couple of things got my attention.

Desperate times...
Quote:
I had never discharged multifocal pneumonia before. Now I personally do it 12-15 times a shift. 2 weeks ago we were admitting anyone who needed supplemental oxygen. Now we are discharging with oxygen if the patient is comfortable and oxygenating above 92% on nasal cannula. We have contracted with a company that sends a paramedic to their home twice daily to check on them and record a pulse ox. We know many of these patients will bounce back but if it saves a bed for a day we have accomplished something. Obviously we are fearful some won't make it back.
Plaquenil is Hydroxychloroquine, which Il Duce had touted as a "magic drug" for COVID-19.
Quote:
Plaquenil which has weak ACE2 blockade doesn't appear to be a savior of any kind in our patient population. Theoretically, it may have some prophylactic properties but so far it is difficult to see the benefit to our hospitalized patients, but we are using it and the studies will tell. With Plaquenil's potential QT prolongation and liver toxic effects (both particularly problematic in covid 19 patients), I am not longer selectively prescribing this medication as I stated on a previous post.
<google google>

QT prolongation is a measure of delayed ventricular repolarisation, which means the heart muscle takes longer than normal to recharge between beats.
