Continuous Adductor Canal Block (Catheter Placement)

Our latest nerve block video is a demonstration by Dr. Don Pang on how to use the Pajunk catheter system. Here, he is using it to place a catheter in the adductor canal. This is a great technique to use to ensure analgesia beyond what a one time bolus of plain local anesthetic will provide. Great description by Dr. Pang!

A very cool graph demonstrating the effectiveness of even just one dose of the Pfizer vaccine. The blue line is the placebo group and the second line is the vaccine group. These lines are charted as incidence of Covid against time. Both groups contract Covid at the same rate until about Day 11, at which time the vaccine group incidence starts to level off. A very effective vaccine!

After record low flu season in Australia, US hopes for the same

Flu season is upon us. Social distancing, masking, and vaccination have now been proven to dramatically stop the spread of flu and other respiratory transmitted diseases. Australia, which just finished their flu season, has seen an unprecedented drop in flu cases: 61,000 cases in Aug 2019 vs only 107 in Aug 2020. All because of social distancing, masking, and vaccination. That is a 99.8% reduction!

The US can easily replicate the incredible success seen in Australia, but we all need to be in it together. Please get vaccinated today!

https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/07/health/covid-flu-season-fall/index.html

cnn.com Australia and other countries in the Southern Hemisphere just finished their easiest flu seasons on record, and the United States and other nations in the Northern Hemisphere could have an easy time, too -- if people get flu shots, practice social distancing and wear masks.

Masks Do More Than Protect Others During COVID-19: Reducing the Inoculum of SARS-CoV-2 to Protect the Wearer

Some have argued that masks which are not graded as N95 or better either:

1) Only protect others from the wearer
2) Have no protective effect at all for anyone due to small virus size

However, the below publication details that not only does mask wearing protect others from the wearer, it also protects the wearer by decreasing the amount of virus they are exposed to.

Although many masks are not 100% effective in stopping virus transmission, a substantial decrease in the amount of the inoculum related to masking correlated either with infection with mild/no symptoms or no new infection at all.

Please continue responsible social distancing protocols, including masking!

Not bad for 3 years old! Very impressive!

Playdough Surgery 🔪🦵🏼- Total Hip Arthroplasty (Replacement)
.
This 3-year old kid has been dying to use his tools from his tool box - translation: “I need an ortho case, please.” 🦴
.
He continually amazes me with how much he actually retains from this. We prepped for this surgery by watching both a real case and a simulated one (he was sure to tell me he preferred “the bloody one”), and then shocked this mama during our own case by pointing out the hip joint “capsule” 🤯 #whatnow
