I think that prone positioning has a significant role in treating early hypoxia. The research studies are not easy to prove but if adherence is optimized the patients may not need supplemental oxygen
Think of a patient on vent who is on NM blockade— proning for 16 hours can be done, but those awake alert patients do not like to lie on the belly for the long term.
In awake patients, adherence to the prone position is a considerable challenge, and perhaps it is one of the reasons most of the trials did not show any survival advantage of #awake prone therapy.
It turned out that smartphone-guided proning did not impact treatment adherence! Bummer! But gave valuable lessons.
The patients were put in categories whether prone or not and how long! All of them were highly motivated and consented to the study.
We recruited a large number of patients— randomized them — gave instructions
Most mammals spend their lives in prone positions. #Proning therapy was frequently used for #COVID19, but can smartphones be used to remind patients to be prone? ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P… a thread 🧵4
A full circle! Hopefully vaping induced lung diseases would be lower. I have seen several ILD cases in young people likely due to vaping. ⁦@accpchestbbc.com/news/business-…

REM related sleep apnea is an important #phenotype, with associate with hypertension (possibly nocturnal and diastolic @accpchest twitter.com/SleepyNeuroDoc…
Number is not everything! Extreme #REM dominant #OSA. AHI=6.1 suggest mild OSA, but actual apnea burden is much higher, with O2 nadir=67%! V-shaped desat + event clustering suggest REM dominance. Deep desat suggest long apnea durations and possible high arousal threshold. BMI=19

Nature has no boundaries! Wildflowers just appeared out of nowhere. What a #wonderfulday
Did the #BA2 wave just came and pass the Houston metro— thanks to high prior infection rates and vaccinations? Cautiously optimistic ⁦@PrathitKulkarni⁩ ⁦@PeterHotez
The wastewater data support my theory, cases are slowly rising.
Why there is no uptick in #covid19 in USA despite high proportion of #BA2 in new infections? I think the wave is a few weeks behind Europe. Interesting article via @nytimes nytimes.com/2022/04/06/bri…
