Just Another Stethoscopic Life

I'm an international medical student studying in the UK, with a special interest in molecular oncology and research. In this blog, I will post science, thoughts and what not that I experience and come in contact with day to day. Good browsing (hunting) and enjoy! :).

Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock

Linked is a very good overview of severe sepsis and septic shock, detailing pathogenesis, epidemiology and treatment (+new therapeutic approaches). A must read by all medics. Sepsis must be borne in mind in all acutely unwell patients with 20-30% mortality in treated septic shock patients.

I leave you with a quote from one of the ID profs I had during a tutorial. He said “Its as deadly as a MI (heart attack), pulmonary embolism, but it is one of the least emphasized subject in UK medical schools.”

Just a Wee Update

Not been posting much. It seems like I have made it through and have graduated from medical school. Just like to reiterate that my posts here will still be just my own encounters and by no means construed as medical advice. See your doctor for that :).
