•Can’t believe it’s almost the end of February aka American Heart Month! ❤️ As health professionals, we are constantly busy with either working, studying, or catching up and as a result, sometimes we forget about our personal physical health & might not exercise as much as we’d like!🙊 *The AHA suggests at least 30 minutes of aerobic (cycling, running, etc.) for at least 5 days/week.*❤️ 🏊🏼‍♂️🚴🏼‍♀️ •In 2018, I’ve really been striving to stay active and workout. It’s always been a challenge for me because I find myself sitting for long hours studying or in class so as I result I’ve been taking the stairs 6 floors up in the library everyday that I study! It’s a small effort to stay active but it’s made me feel better (and improve circulation) before I hit the books for a few hours! Of course, my walk up the stairs is not enough exercise so I like going for a run in the evenings🏃🏻‍♀️ How do YOU stay active with a busy schedule?! Comment below! 👇🏼 #stayactive #hearthealth #worklifebalance #stethohope #stethoscope
So proud of my husband on co-authoring a Pathology/Radiology textbook! The book, titled "23 Autopsies. A companion for the study of Pathology," is now available on Amazon. He worked really hard on this book, working on it even after a long day at the hospital. We appreciate all your support! I’m his #1fan 😘😍 #author #pathology #radiology #proudwife #mashaAllah #Alhumdulilah #ThankGodforalltheblessings

Face transplant is not a fictional case scenario any more! A face transplant is a medical procedure to replace all or part of a person's face using tissue from a cadaver. The world's first partial face transplant on a living human was carried out in France in 2005. The world's first full face transplant was completed in Spain in 2010. Turkey, France, the United States and Spain are considered the leading countries in the research into the procedure.
The procedure consists of a series of operations requiring rotating teams of specialists. With issues of tissue type, age, sex, and skin color taken into consideration, the patient's face is removed and replaced (sometimes including the underlying fat, nerves, blood vessels, bones, and/or musculature). The surgery may last anywhere from 8 to 36 hours, followed by a 10- to 14-day hospital stay! Weird or not?🤔👇________________________________________________________Follow @medical_clinical_cases for more!!

The internal segment of the globus pallidus (GP(i)) gathers many bits of information including movement-related activity from the striatum, external segment of the globus pallidus (GP(e)), and subthalamic nucleus (STN), and integrates them. The GP(i) receives rich GABAergic inputs from the striatum and GP(e), and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors are distributed in the GP(i) in a specific manner. Thus, inputs from the striatum and GP(e) may control GP(i) activity in a different way. The GP(i) finally conveys processed information outside the basal ganglia. Changes in GABAergic neurotransmission have been reported in movement disorders and suggested to play an important role in the pathophysiology of the symptoms.

I'm often asked about my dual role as a fellow and attending. Currently, I'm a critical care fellow and board-eligible anesthesiology attending who "moonlights" in the operating rooms doing my own cases or supervising residents/CRNAs. As per my program's policy, I'm not allowed to moonlight more than 20 hours per month as this could potentially lead to duty hour violations during my critical care fellowship. ⏱
.
Once I start my second fellowship in July, I'll also be a board-eligible intensivist that can moonlight in the intensive care units (ICUs). I plan to take advantage of this opportunity by doing 1-2 overnight shifts in the thoracic ICU per month as I complete my cardiothoracic anesthesiology fellowship. 😊
.
Having the ability to roam seamlessly between the OR and ICU is incredible. Both environments involve acute care, and the knowledge/skills I utilize in one arena make me better in the other for my patients and trainees. 👨🏽‍⚕️🏥💉

The Cardiac Cath Lab!
So what exactly goes on in here? The Cath Lab is where we do diagnostic and interventional cardiac procedures - meaning we can detect a problem and fix it. Everything we do here is minimally invasive and more of a procedure than a surgery unlike an actual sterile OR.
*
*
We take small catheters and introduce them into the arterial system through the radial artery in the wrist or the femoral artery in the groin. We direct them into the coronary arteries and inject contrast dye and use the live x-ray camera (flouroscopy) to see the contrast inside the arteries to look for blockages. We can then snake wires, balloons, and stents through the catheters into the arteries to open up those blockages. This is how we treat someone emergently during a heart attack or electively for a stable blockage. *
*
Similarly we can evaluate and treat almost any arterial blockage in the body here including the legs, carotid, subclavian, mesenteric, and even veins. We also use the Cath Lab to perform valve procedures such as TAVR where we can replace aortic valves minimally invasively.

On weekend STEMI call, waiting for some action. So far so quiet! (Oops I said the Q word.....) What’s everyone else doing this weekend?

Lung sounds, also called breath sounds, can be auscultated across the anterior and posterior chest walls with a stethoscope. Adventitious lung sounds are referenced as crackles (rales), wheezes (rhonchi), stridor and pleural rubs as well as voiced sounds that include egophony, bronchophony and whispered pectoriloquy.

What Is More Important for USMLE Step 1, Questions or Studying?
One of the good things to be aware of, is the fact that you have been studying the requisite material for nearly 2 years by the time you take USMLE Step 1. The questions are often long and clinical vignette based, so getting used to the style of questions that are being asked is important. The more questions you are able to do the better prepared you will be for the test! While multiple questions banks are available, ask more senior students at your school as to which they would recommend. USMLE World tends to be one of the most popular, particularly as the questions are harder than the exam. Leave yourself plenty of time to do enough questions and to review all of the explanations; this includes questions you get right and ones you get wrong.
Good luck!

If you have questions or comments, please let me know here or via DM!

“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.” ⠀

The path we have taken as foreign medical students and graduates is not an easy one. Will it be hard? Yes! Will it be worth it? YES! Keep working on your dream of becoming the physician you want to be and whenever you lose site of that goal remember why you started!⠀

These are my Saturday essentials! Not pictured is my laptop that allows me to have access to the EMR while out and about on medicine wards 👩🏽‍💻 I wish I was able to enjoy Florida’s warm sunny weather today, but sickness doesn’t care about how nice the weather is outside! So I’ll be hanging out with my patients. What are you all up to today? If you’re off, please enjoy it for me!
