blueearthphoto Here, miners pray for their safety before beginning a work shift 6500 feet underground at the Great Noligwa mine in Orkney, South Africa. The miners have historically had high rates of TB, due to poor screening and treatment programs, cramped living quarters and high rates of silicosis, an occupational lung disease that increase the likelihood of developing active TB.

  •   christiankraeker yikes 12h
  •   s_valdez85 Is that pneumothorax 12h
  •   s_valdez85 ? 12h
  •   kasikili There's a pneumothorax in the right hemothorax. Not sure if its a 'you have hours to live' life threatening but its still a red flag 12h
  •   doktork It's a PTX. If it's ok with dr @cjhunter I would like to ask his students another question. Why are HIV patients more likely to develop a PTX? Which HIV related conditions predispose to PTX? (It's a tough one, I know). 12h
  •   cjhunter @doktork excellent! Keep throwing in any question you like. Might just give you a faculty appointment. Great question. 11h

amy_mccaskill The old King Edward VII tuberculosis sanatorium. Built in the early 1900s was used for patients who suffered from tuberculosis. Until the late 50s when it became a home for the mentally handicapped for the next 25 years until it was shut down.
Had a great night exploring the tunnels of this spooky place with @kaileen_bocking @drealgarret @pureirish76 my mom and Holly. Fun and full of information. Thank you for the tour!

_samjordan_ 15 miles of sketchy abandoned underground tunnels. Finally found the old morgue/crematorium. It's like they just said fuck it and left everything exactly the way it was and never went back. #tuberculosis #asbestos # 4d
