Is it possible to develop carpal tunnel and tennis elbow in the same arm simultaneously? Is it safe to wear braces for both at once?
>>12350617why wouldn't it be
Sorry for repost, but maybe someone has an idea:Guys, got a problem. I was pretty sick in the beginning of this year and had to sit around all day. Then Corona made me sit around even more for work.I get weird symptoms sometimes, heart racing, chest pounding, pain on my upper spine (not extreme), crazy hard muscles around some vertebrae, panic attacks that last for half an hour or so.I'm 99% convinced it's because of a problem with my upper spine. Doctors ruled out the heart and a slip disc. One doctor recommended doing sports, so I did that, but last time I did pull-ups, my heart started pounding again and I heard it beating extremely loud in my left ear.What the fuck is going on?

FUCK. Might have gotten carpal tunnel syndrome because of working so hard autistically and fucking up my elbows. Anyone else got something similar? What do?
>>12350896>What do?you can't diagnose yourself a carpal tunnel or a desk elbow without a clinical examgo see your doctor
>>12350967There's a pandemic going on, Can't do that. I got some cream and am changing the way I work from now on. Also got a splint
>>12351015hmmmtry to take it easy on your arm for a couple of weeksalso when you sleep, make sure you are doing it in an intelligent positiongoogle carpal tunnel sleep position i am however not convinced you have carpal tunnel from >>12350896 you can also go on youtube and write 'carpal tunnel self diagnosis' or something similarhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bOYvEADHyUtry these tests from the video and do exactly as he does and see what happens
>>12351115I've had this numbness on my right pinky finger for 2 months or so. I rang my doctor and told him my symptoms. I still have nerve functioning and no fasciculations.
>>12351143*Cubital tunnel, not carpal tunnel
>>12351143>I've had this numbness on my right pinky fingerok that's the elbow indeed, the ulnar nervegoogle around for remedies and correct position of the arm when you sleep and sit i don't actually know if flexed, extended in the elbow or what's best
>>12351163Yes, thanks for responding. My doctor told me to put on some Ibuprofen Gel, massage it and get a splint (don't have a split now but bought one of Amazon) Kinda worried as well. I've also stopped working out my right arm as much and only done left arm gym exercises.
>>12351174I wish I could get this checked up through scans and stuff but I cant.
>>12351174avoid working out and repetitive movements as well as applying pressure to it are you otherwise healthy and not taking any sort of medication?
>>12351197Is it ok to not work out my right arm though and work out the rest of my body? I can't avoid studying (doing dentistry) and flexing my elbow when Im working. I'm fairly healthy, not obese. On a big cut (diet wise) so i'm losing weight, maybe a bit too quickly. Not on any medications.
>>12351209>Is it ok to not work out my right arm though and work out the rest of my body?yeah, i guess that's okif the ibuprofen Gel fails:you can also try ibuprofen orally 200-400 mg three times a day for NO more than 3-4 weeks (bad for the stomach if taken for more than that)combined with paracetamol 1 gram 4 times a day for the same 3-4 weeksthat's like a super standard NSAID run, but don't take them above the daily maxthat's what i would try on myself if i had an elbow messing with my daily activities also take it easy with the big cut, if you want things to heal, you can't starve yourself
>>12350801when you become a father
>>12350596Thanks r*ddit friend
>>12351271Thanks anon. >if you want things to heal, you can't starve yourselfTbh, I feel great food wise. I'm not starving myself but am losing weight fairly quickly (like 0.2 kg a day). I have read on Wiki that Carpal tunnel can be fixed with the right treatment so hopefully that works.
I'm a nurse, used to work in the ER. I like what the ER is supposed to be, but I hate the homeless, mentally ill, poor people, hypochondriacs and calling cabs for people. Where can I work that's supposed to be an ER without the bullshit?

>>12355044I feel yat. high test coomer pro
>>12354896You have to realize by yourself the reason why you used to take drugs. Lots of times it may not be the high itself but the "friends" around you or the sense of zoning out that you got from it. Nobody turn an addict out of personal fulfillment, the was something you lacked and tried to fill with the cozy embrace of drugs. I once got so high on dudeweed420lmao that I started to feel as if someone was hugging me and felt a warmth on my back and if as some woman breath on my shoulder. It was good but after it I felt miserable since it was not real. Addictive personalities may canalize their dopamine needs by doing something more productive or at least less harmful, like lifting, reading or playing competitive videogames.
>>12355100dunno, not very experienced in killing myself
>>12354538Yes. Don't know about the brain scan aspect, but DID is certainly real.
>>12355248why'd you need one.
>>12355432Not the guy that posted it but I'd guess that the pt had a gruesome fracture on the tibial head so the traumatologist decided to implant a mechanical knee to avoid leaving the patient with a stanky leg.

>>12355210How does it work? I thought there was no evidence for it
>>12350525Ok, I have had a condition for years, where my lips develop a white layer of skin on top of my bottom lip, and then it peels(Looks like exfoliative cheilitis). Another thing I've had, and it's gotten worse, is pain when I press my stomach(when it flares up and I've eaten something wrong). Had gas and gut issues for years(sometimes get the shits). Now my little brother is developing the exact same symptoms. I went to multiple doctors, but all the blood taking, sent in my shit, and where I ended up was; something is wrong when we looked at your shit. But after that my doc did a 3 month vacation and I moved during that time.What do? Should I do a colonoscopy? How do I reliably find out if I have food allergies/intolerances(patch test found nothing)? This shit is fucking my life. And now my lil' brother's getting it.
Just found this one and I thought you might enjoy it as well!!!
>>12356708Synonymous word funny
>>12356619You probably spent most of the time constipated and developed chronic colitis over it, your brother the same because he eats the same shit as you do.Of course with this little information how are we supposed to work.
Med student here, shitting my fucking brains out for the past 26 hours, what are some signs that I should consider going to the hospital?
>>12356848>imagine investing your precious time working for freeThat under the implications that your time is worth shit, since you're most likely a MS retard.
>>12356848Thanks anon, I quit eating like shit though, years ago. So I'm doing better on avarage. My brother isn't even 10, so there's that.>>12356884Anon, no need to be a rear receiver about it.
What did you say when asked why you wanted to be a doctor in med school interviews.How to give a meaningful answer that doesn't sound like generic bullshit?I think saying that I want to get an autistic understanding of the human body won't go over well.
>>12357040A blessing of the 3rd world is that we don't have to go under idiotic interview and whatever bullcrap is good to keep the profession as a lobby. However we were always asked that question on 1st day of class. I decided medicine because it interested me, simple as. Anyone can help, nurses specially. Anyone can learn human function, biomedical engineers specially. Anyone can read long hours, philosophers specially. Only requirement you need to study medicine is the will to do so. You don't need to justify it or become a virtue signalling retard.
>>12357148i am a firstie in europe (scandinavia) and we didn't get interviews either, just apply with your grades from school
>>12357040whatever it is, hit all these boxesI am convinced that a poorly articulated answer to this question was what failed me the interview at my first choice school, got into the second choice though.
med bros, should I major in medicine or go on to study physics, I'm a eurofag btw
>be me>hypothyroidism under control with levothyroxine>still sleep constantlyNot as bad as before diagnosis, but still quite a lot. Been diagnosed for around 7 years.
>>12357821physics is fun but a bitch to make a living with if you don't want to be a code monkey or a teacher
>>12350656Probably tight muscles around the scapula or the erector spinae causing the pain.The rest is just you panicking at the symptoms, probably have generalised anxiety disorder or panic attacks.
How do I get a prescription for ritalin or some other ADHD medication? I live in eastern europe and I'm not sure going to a psychiatrist would be much of an option, can I buy some other ADHD meds online?
>>12358324Dunno. Not familiar at all with pharmaceutical safety in eastern europe. A quick read of your local laws would be enough for you to figure out the legal/practical void, that would work if you're bright enough; which I highly doubt since your first choice was asking a tuvan xbox repair forum to spoon-feed you.
>>12354484Yes. And break that which would continue the cycle.
>>12354896Do you have friends?
>>12356619What's your general level of fitness (not health)?What's your oral health regimen?
>>12358324Not very hard if you have ADHD / believe you have it. Even the most conservative countries are pretty lax on Ritalin. Most systems will let you easily get enough for personal use.Though if you try to sell/abuse them you're fucked. Abusing is pretty much impossible because you'll quickly build tolerance. If you try to sell, local LEO will easily notice if you're selling a lot and your name will be there on a silver platter on your RX.

>>12355248Someone post the pasta about surgeons being carpenter quacks
>>12358982Social isolation / lack of community / lack of personal contact. These lead to pressure on your sense of purpose and meaning in life. This was an epidemic before the pandemic, across the developed world. How do you fight it? Continually reaching out, involving yourself, even superficially, in others lives. Particularly, touching base with people you see every day, even if just to make eye contact, and say hi. Smile, the whole world smiles back at you as they say. The people who live on your block, in your building, are a source of comfort if you know them. Define for yourself a "home territory". This could be the space around your place, or a place you choose, like a coffee shop (problematic at the moment). In this territory, reserve the right to be gregarious, to be open. When someone passes through that territory, be interested in who they are. Take note of symbols and statements that telegraph meaning and interests. Assume that a person's unrevealed experiences will be interesting. Strike up conversations in a spirit of bonhomie. Acknowledge the presence of others with eye contact, and reserve the right to unapologetic, permission-less initiation of conversation, if they seem open to it. That's the social prescription. The personal platform is eschewing bad drugs especially alcohol, pills, cigarettes. If you're more of the autistic type, some further rules might help. For example, do not address anyone if they are not looking at you (from the side, from behind.) If they are facing you and your eyes meet, say "hello". Make a rule to acknowledge people who follow these rules as well. And finally realize your problems are more or less the same as everyone else's, and everyone wants the same basic things. We all have an inherent drive to know what others experience, and to be familiar with the people we see everyday. It is kind of like detective work. You are interested in them; they are interested in you; these all converge.
>>12358870There must be dozens of things that could cause that. Covid is one particularly obvious example nowadays but far from the only one. Definitely call up an actual doctor.
>>12359119thank you for the effort.i try to talk to people and colleagues but am just a toxic person i think, not that i say anything weird or offensive, i just get nervous and start spouting trivia that bores people and makes me look like an ass holehowever, i think my biggest problem is that i'm ugly so people, especially the females stay awayand there's no fix for that, also i missed my best yearsall i ever wanted was to have a gf/wife that's also a doctor so we could share the experience and be able to talk things through and discuss stuff and help each other i will keep trying for the next couple of years, i still have some hope, but it's slim
>>12359184What you have is self-limiting beliefs which are the sticking points in a lot of cases of depression. What you frame as "objective" truths are simply not. Your prior beliefs establish the perceptive filters that have been calibrated to affirm these beliefs. So when you look in the mirror you see "ugly", when someone seems to ignore you, you think they don't like you, etc.Most people think that they are building a life like they're building a house. Certain raw materials, certain processes, and following a plan are calibrated to deliver a predictable result. But in fact, all it does it reinforce a false sense of security that you can, in some way, make life more deterministic, when it will remain stubbornly serendipitous. Instead, use your time constructively without respect to outcomes, to create opportunities for chance events to occur without deliberative planning- instead of forever trying to triangulate toward some objective, eg., you work out because it makes you feel better, not that its intention is to make you look better. Think critically about dominant thought processes that are resistant to change. As we age we become less flexible intellectually and this process can start very early. Crystallized thought processes should be literally dissolved. The cognitive method of approaching this is to assume the premises of those closely-held beliefs are, in fact, untrue, and being relentless in self-assessment of the framing in which we contextualize internal experiences. In other words, external validation of those techniques is not what is prescribed. The totality of the success of these treatments is internal to the cognitive process- ideation, or internal dialogue.Lastly, I think you would benefit from regular sessions with a therapist.
>>12359324>Lastly, I think you would benefit from regular sessions with a therapist.i was thinking of making an appointment i am considering keeping my profession a secret though, at least to begin with
>>12358743Oral health = perfect. I brush every morning and before sleep. Take care of them and let the dentist check up aswell. I asked my dentist and she said it wasn't from my teeth for sure, since I did a swab test and they found nothing from that aswell + the look of them.Fitness: slipping, but I used to be decent. Let's say dormant, slaving away in CS. But not a fat slob either. Skinny fat bastard atm(hitting the gym once I get income again)
>>12359445I'd like to add, there was a time where I worked out every day. Not saying it isn't a better lifestyle, but my lips still kept peeling.

My clinical gross anatomy professor is literal creationist. If you ask questions about evolution of the body and joints or musculature she squirts the question and nearly mentions god. Keep in mind she has a fucking doctorate degree. Fucking aids.
>>12361935>My clinical gross anatomy professor is literal creationist.that's kinda weird but it's fairly irrelevantif you know the anatomy by heart it doesn't really matter if you believe god created it or evolutionalso you are probably autistic and didn't get she wasn't 100% serious
>>12359790thx bruhfeels good being appreciated for once
>>12361939Nah she was serious. Literally insane to have a PhD in any medical field and still be a creationist. This bitch is also an antimasker and started talking political corruption when she heard about the corona vaccines being released after the election cycle.

>>12362005On topic. Is it easy for medical doctors to immigrate to the EU? Fuck this shithole.
>>12362069depends on the country
>>12362093>>12362093this, some are very lax, but some have very high barriers to protect the native docs, once you get licensed to practice in one EU country, it gets a bit easier to move around
>>12362804>the introductory course for Norwegian practice costs 50NOK
>>12362833>50NOKthat's like 10 bucks what's the problem
>>12362843Oh sorry, I mistyped. It's 50k Nok.
>>12362848emigrating aint free believe it or not
>>12362833>the introductory course for Norwegian practice costs 50NOKwhat about doctors educated in the EU?Because Norway is on my list and I have some friends there. But I'm not going to be able to conjure 5k euros out of my ass to start working there.
>>12362878>what about doctors educated in the EU?you can practice there afaik, but you'll probably need to pay for language classes and probably start as a basic resident for a year, which aint even that long
>>12362862Enjoy the syrian engineers and somalian doctors.
>>12362862>emigrating aint free believe it or notIf you're out of africa the only fees you pay is for the human trafficker. Last bill is for the boatman, rest is on the European taxpayer. European governments spends 5-10x more money on a stranger that shows up with no papers than they do on their own born, bred and educated citizens. I'd rather pay a tax to combat subs to make the mediterranean a no-float-zone./rant
>>12362885>but you'll probably need to pay for language classesI speak Swedish so I can probably bypass that.
>>12362900trueyou'll pick up norwegian quickly then you'll have no trouble moving there if your diploma is swedish
>>12362889>>12362894>the only type of emigration is being a refugeeok zoomers
>>12362894Euros sabotage themselves. They cry about their shortage on licensed professionals but will make it as hard as possible for laymen to move while on the other side they even house "refugees" by the hundreds.
>>12362903>if your diploma is swedishIt's polish, that's my problem. Finnish citizen, speaking swedish with polish diploma.I'm clusterfucked by a bureaucratic nightmare.
>>12362878Within the EU your md is automatically recognized and you can do whatever a native graduate could do (apply for residencies etc), specializations are also "automatically" recognized if both countries have the same specialty, though this is a bit more murky in practice as you might have to cut through a lot red tape to be able to actually practice. Norway is a bit tricky because they are not in the EU, I don't know if they do have a deal with the EU. At least the Nordic countries have a separate agreement that allows for docs to move between those countries freely, though that predates the EU.
>>12362930just get valvira to legalize you and fuck off to norway, finnish docs can work in norway without any hassle
>>12362930>It's polish, that's my problem.>Finnish citizen, speaking swedish with polish diploma.you should be finethere's tons of polish doctors in scandinavia
>>12362953>just get valvira to legalize youValvira will only legalize me if I'm fully legalized in Poland. So there goes any future plans of staying in Finland.I hope the Norwegian systems allows legalizing within the Norwegian system without needing Polish papers because otherwise I might as well wipe my ass with my degree and start stacking shelves.
>>12362941>Within the EU your md is automatically recognizedNo. I need to complete a post graduation practice work thing and the Polish State Board Exam LEK or whatever it's called.Only after that will automatic recognition apply to me. I would however prefer to live the rest of my entire life without ever putting my foot on Polish soil again, so I'm looking for a bypass. I thought I had an option for solving this in Finland but valvira fucked me over so I'm looking for another solution.
>>12363118>>12363108>goes to study MEDICINE abroad>doesn't bother to learn the languagewhat the fuck, you never talk to patients over there or what? You can't be a doctor without having interacted with patients but why am i surprised when you were too dumb to get into a finnish school anyways so you had to essentially buy a diploma in poland while doing less work than actual polish students >so I'm looking for another solution.yeah sit your ass down and learn polish so you can pass the post grad year
>>12363108>>12363118Ya dun goofed, embrace the suck and do your three years, no other way around it.
>>12363134What's an English language program?What's patients speaking English?What's interpreters?What's the local system changing the same year I graduate to make it harder to get legalized?What's the wage for a fresh doctor in Poland?(hint: it's less than four digits in euros)I'll go work for Big Pharma or international consultants if this doesn't pan out.
>>12363142>embrace the suck and do your three yearsI think you fail to understand the situation. 3 year in Finland gives me an YEK, the YEK is not accepted by Valvira as a step to legalization for foreign students. They will ask me to take it to Poland for Legalization and if Poland legalizes me then Valvira will consider doing the same. The only other option is to apply to the same process as those who studies outside the EU.
>>12363176I meant Poland, YEK is two years.
>>12363159>What's an English language program?that's no excuse, they're literally just using you and other westerners who failed to get into their own unis - to make easy moneyalso what's a young person that lived up to 6 years in a foreign country without learning the local languageand most importantly>speaking to some 75 year old polish lady with an interpreterthat's embarrassing and soulless. Just imagining it makes me cringe >What's the wage for a fresh doctor in Poland?(hint: it's less than four digits in euros)that doesn't matter, since we both know your parents are paying your fees and covering your expenses anywaysmedicine isn't like cs or engineering, it takes more and that's why most countries have a post grad clinical periodtime to put on your big boy pants and actually earn your place among us without looking for shortcuts
>>123632183 for foreign students. Though I don't see the point of it even existing as it's completely useless.Poland is out of the question. I would need to speak fluent polish to do anything there and again, the wage is what? 500 euros a month?Sweden is an option if Norway turns non-viable, or someplace else in Europe that values doctors more than their local bureaucrats. Or Pharma/Consulting.
>>12363238>>speaking to some 75 year old polish lady with an interpreter>that's embarrassing and soulless. Just imagining it makes me cringeA family doctor in some parts of Sweden have 50% of patient contacts through phone interpreter due to the migrant density.>since we both know your parents are paying your feesThey are Dead. What are student loans? Thanks for being an asshole, asshole.
>>12350525How do you circumcise someone and live with yourself? Doesn't it damage your core sense of identity, knowing you were pressured into mutilating someone's genitals? Sadists and psychopaths need not apply, I'm curious about what realer people have to say.
>>12363250so you're just as dumb as a migrant who can't learn swedish, that's your excuse?or do you expect your 75 yo patient to know english >They are Dead. What are student loans? Thanks for being an asshole, asshole.i don't believe youyou just seem like too much of a spoiled brat for that to be true, always seeking shortcuts
>>12363244>Though I don't see the point of it even existing as it's completely useless.It's a EU thing, we don't need it but apparently most European med schools can't produce competent docs out of the gate. I'd assume you'll have the same shit with Norway and Sweden. And I can't imagine you'd be very hot shit to pharma/MBB with just your polish md.
>>12363305>I'd assume you'll have the same shit with Norway and Swedenyou would be ccorrectthey both have postgrad clinical periods, also denmark and germanyand apparently poland tooit's probably an EU standard requirement so all the schools adhere to it >It's a EU thing, we don't need it but apparently most European med schools can't produce competent docs out of the gate.it's essentially a way of moving the gate a year or two further
>>12363305>It's a EU thing, we don't need it but apparently most European med schools can't produce competent docs out of the gate.Direct legitimation is a thing with doctors from Poland today. Had I started my education a bit later I would've been fully legitimized, because turns out the postgraduation practice is a retarded system.Also you still don't understand. The YEK serves absolutely no purpose. You don't get legitimized after doing it if you have a foreign degree. You don't get higher wage if you have a local degree. It's a completely worthless piece of paper. It's originates from some EU initiative but it serves no actual purpose.
>>12363339>it's probably an EU standard requirement so all the schools adhere to itDirect legitimation is a thing. A lot of countries have it and more moves towards it because it makes things a million times more simple. Doesn't mean you're more competent when you leave school but it means you're not stuck in a never ending nightmare of applications, queues and paperwork. There is a standardized EU intiative for postgraduation studies but these are not binding in the EU in any way. It's up to the local legislature to either care a lot, a little or not at all if you have it or not.
>>12363358regardless, you can't be a lazy fennoswede that can't learn a language in 6 years so he could round off his studies dude's more interested in the title rather than actually earning it
>>12363340>Also you still don't understand. The YEK serves absolutely no purpose. You don't get legitimized after doing it if you have a foreign degree. You don't get higher wage if you have a local degree. It's a completely worthless piece of paper. It's originates from some EU initiative but it serves no actual purpose.No. I understand perfectly. As I said, we don't need it, but we have it because most EU/ETA countries had a system where MDs were not considered competent enough to practice straight out of school. So in order to establish automatic recognition of degree inside the EU they decided they need a universal post graduate period. We didn't have such a period before as the assumption was (and still is) that a MD is competent enough to practice straight out of school, but we created it to comply with the EU regulations. It was literally called the eurolääkärivaihe (euro doctor phase) before.
>>12363385There's thousands of people in Poland doing the English language programs. No one stays in Poland after medschool for wrapping it up because it's a retarded choice. You're oblivious to the context if you think it's a good idea, or retarded.
>>12363397>but we created it to comply with the EU regulationsSeveral other EU countries don't offer it so it's not necessary to have such a program.It's also pointless because it gives no additional qualifications, whoever in Finland that decided that it should exist in finland at all was obviously just sitting on additional resources that they needed a black hole to dump things into.
>>12363412Kek, if the EU comes up with absolutely anything Finland will implement it religiously, you should know this.A part of it is also to force docs into primary care for the nine month period to in an inane way to provide workers for the public sector.
>>12350525Is it possible that dyspraxia, autistic like tendencies, mild psychosis, mild digestional issues and above average intelligence (not meaning to wank myself off) are all part of one larger condition?In which case I call it "retarded anon syndrome".
>>12363470this guy was clamped
>>12363541Yes, probably. Cesarean and born "in distress" (oh noes!) and thus immediately clamped and taken from my mother without her even getting to hold me.
>>12363551>>12363470That's it. You were warned about spamming and now we have to turn on the brain fog beam. YOU MADE US DO THIS
>>12363638Nah Anon, I already think like that. You can't exploit a near solipsistic well of uncertainty and an inability to resolve ambiguity, if it's already been thoroughly tapped, traced out, and accepted. Sorry if I'm no fun. ;^(

Just admit it, you are only in it for the money.
Henlo frens, long time no see, romanon here. How's the situation in your country? We're in lockdown, doing online classes, pure theory and it's fucking with my brain plus the government wants 4th, 5ht and 6th year students to volunteer at triage to help out a bit. Fuck nurses (especially the ones with a dick)Fuck premedsFuck medical advice

>>12365787Is this, dare I say, based?
>>12365703let's hope so
>>12365787>people have collectively stopped giving a fuck about coronaCould it be because it's a nothingburger to everyone who isn't 85 years old with dementia so advanced they don't even know their own name anymore?
>>12366186In Mexico it's more serious than that, mainly because 1/3 adults in working age have hypertension. Out of the bunch there's also a strong genetic predisposition for diabetes and obesity that complicates everything. There's also a major population on unattended/neglected people in south and central america with failed states that legit live in africa-tier conditions. Unfortunately we live in a globalized world and the ineptitude of one country can hurt another in the whole other side of the globe. If you really think this is a nothingburger you're either subclinically retarded or a straight retard (aka american).

>>12350555Shut your whore mouth.
>>12354626It was fun going to slums and asking parents for permission to scotch tape their kids for samples.
can someone redpill me on what the fuck's going on in the US about PA, NP and their titles? Do they have such a large inferiority complex that they want to take the short route and offer suboptimal patient care? I've seen something about NPs that want to change their names to Cathopathic (kek) Physicians. Yes, PHYSICIANS. Fucking cope, nurse niggers.
>>12369142The main reason behind the very large MD and DO salaries in the US (namely market economics of AMA restricting the number of residences to create a low supply of drs, therefore, driving up rates they can demand) has finally come home to roost as the same capitalist logic has driven policy changes to allow NPs and PAs to act up, therefore, lowering costs to the health care providers employing providers.MD and DO are now seething and croaking about MUH PATIENT CARE as if that's what they care about and not their massive pay packets. Any argument they make will be demolished by the demand for increasing profits.
>>12369215Let me understand this properly. So, NPs and PAs were created to address the physician shortages IN RURAL AREAS but most of them don't want to work there or under the supervision of a physician, yet when they fuck up, they blame it on the doctor. I understand that giving them the right to practice independently is unfair to the people that completed medical school and residency, but what's up with the creep? Why do NPs and PAs push it so hard to practice independently when they have only a fraction of knowledge of a physician? Also, considering the lower cost of a NP or PA, doesn't that make the profit go down? Or does it mean it's more accessible than a physician and more people will seek a NP/PA?I'm confused.
>>12369238Never think this is about what is best for the patients' health, it is purely about money.>yet when they fuck up, they blame it on the doctorWould you not do the same if you were a retarded NP? They are acting to get the best of both worlds, both freedom of practice with none of the risk. Stop thinking that anyone will act on behalf of the patient or some concept of justice/fairness/ethics etc.>unfair to the people that completed medical school and residencyNo one cares about fairness this is about money>they have only a fraction of knowledge of a physicianWho cares? Health care businesses can employ 3 NPs for the cost of 1 MD which equals 3x the product (billable notes/hours/investigations) for the same cost therefore increasing profits.This is the end result of your goal being profit rather than patient health. None of the big health lobbyists or politicians that have pushed through these policies gives a fuck about what is best for the patient. Profit=Revenue-Costs Using NPs and PAs lowers costs and reduces the demand for MD and DOs so the salaries they can demand decrease.
>>12369275Got it now, thanks for the explanation. Never thought of it in that way, I really thought it was about patient care and not about money. US is more fucked up than I thought.
>>12369275Whats an NP and a PA.
>>12369349Not him. NP is Nurse Practitioner and PA is Physician Assistant. I don't want to explain which one is doing what, you can google it and see for yourself. My country doesn't have that shit, at least and I assume yours too?
>>12369359Just the acronyms is what I needed.
I have an autistic question, what is surgery? How do you define that branch of medicine?
>>12369517>Surgery is a medical specialty that uses operative manual and instrumental techniques on a person to investigate or treat a pathological condition such as a disease or injury, to help improve bodily function or appearance or to repair unwanted ruptured areas.Literally googled it.
>>12369520Yeah, and the definition is shit.
>>12369522You definitely are autistic. What are you looking for then? That's the definition, brief and comprehensive.
>>12369522>Surgery, branch of medicine that is concerned with the treatment of injuries, diseases, and other disorders by manual and instrumental means. Surgery involves the management of acute injuries and illnesses as differentiated from chronic, slowly progressing diseases, except when patients with the latter type of disease must be operated upon.Here's another one, literally the same but in more words.
>>12369529>>12369534I think I am autistic just ignore me. I have to actually think about why I am sperging out about the definition in the first place. I think the current definition is just too vague and long, it should be shorter and more precise,When a dermatologist removes a mole for biopsy, when you stitch a wound, or when you just add a band-aid to a wound, is that considered surgery?
>>12369549Read this part again>Surgery involves the management of ACUTE injuries and illnesses as differentiated from chronic, slowly progressing diseases, except when patients with the latter type of disease must be operated upon.A biopsy is, stitching is, band aid surely not as there is no instrumentation.
>>12369553But that definition basically excludes plastic surgery. Also, diagnostic surgery is also excluded by the definition?
Is there anything like full body iontophoresis where you can shock your entire body?t. full body hyperhidrosis
>>12369560Biopsy is also diagnostic, of course it includes them too by the first definition. The second one is more "treatment" related.
>>12368993>people get sick everyday tb will kill way more people than yo stupid rona faggot

>>12368993Eh, remember the chinese lockdowns? People dying in the streets, police dragging people to quarantine etc.
>>12371103Yeah but most of us are not living there. It's hard to handle a country with such an immense population and I'm not even sure their numbers are real.
After reading this article: https://www.bmj.com/content/371/bmj.m4298I have to say this is exactly my boring experience of my 4th and 5th years of med school here in the UK. All we do is observe and have no specific role in the team, maybe more responsibility is a good thing for training.I only have experience with the UK medical school system.Do final year/senior medical students get clinical responsibilities in your country? Are you actually part of the team? Would patient care suffer if you didn't turn up? What are your opinions on this?
>>12371298>Do final year/senior medical students get clinical responsibilities in your country?nowe do get tasks to do, but no actual responsibility >Are you actually part of the team? often yes, but it's mostly for our own learning>Would patient care suffer if you didn't turn up?sometimes yes>What are your opinions on this?there's just so much shit to learn that i don't see another wayhere we get a postgrad year where we work as full fledged MD's but it's still under some supervision. I think that addresses your articlethe thing is nowadays the healthcare system is very well regulated and extremely patient whipped, so doctors are a bit concerned to assign tasks to students since it's the doctor that carries the responsibility in the end anywaysi can definitely identify with your feelings though
>>12350525Can MDs go into just research?
>>12370117Thats a horrible thing to say
Premed chad here. Im an perfect applicant AMA. Also nurses are vagrant whores with no virtues. Debate me, you won't because you all know it's true.

Yesterday read a news article that stated 600 people are waiting for a spot to open up so the govt sent them all over the country for admission and treatment.
>>12351626Never anywhere dude, if you're in the hospital you're with anything and everything. Especially for us RN's dude, we wipe crackheads asses in the ICU
>>12354502Keep doing things and eventually it becomes normal, you won't even notice the pressure

>>12371298Here you can work outside of primary care positions after the 4th year and everywhere after the 5th year (MD is six years). I find it to be very valuable, we have a lot of people who go abroad to study medicine and come back, and their clinical skills tend to be a lot worse as they have very little clinical experience compared to native grads.
>>12372321No, we have 10x the daily infections compared to the spring but around one tenth of the patients in the spring (which was around 30% of our max capacity).

You medfags are embarrassing. I just spent the weekend in the hospital due to accidental exposure to large amounts of iron pentacarbonyl and none of the doctors even knew what chemical I was talking about, or what to do about it.
