Collagenous and Lymphocytic Colitis | Johns Hopkins Medicine

§ May 9th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Collagenous and Lymphocytic Colitis | Johns Hopkins Medicine

Facebook Linkedin Pinterest Print Stomach and Gut

Collagenous and lymphocytic colitis are forms of microscopic colitis that affect the large intestine. The term microscopic colitis is used to describe chronic, watery diarrhea in patients with only microscopic evidence of inflammation.

The main symptom of collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis is chronic, watery diarrhea, as often as five to 10 watery bowel movements per day. More than half of patients cannot pinpoint when their symptoms began.

The diarrhea is usually accompanied by cramps and abdominal pain. These episodes rarely occur at night. Patients are commonly given an incorrect diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome. One key difference is that patients with collagenous/lymphocytic colitis tend to be older and do not have a history of alternating constipation and diarrhea.

A diagnosis of collagenous/lymphocytic colitis begins with a comprehensive physical exam during which you describe your symptoms and medical history. Other diagnostic procedures include:

Routine blood tests will be ordered to look for any abnormalities. Your doctor may also want to collect a stool sample for analysis.

The standard diagnostic procedure for collagenous/lymphocytic colitis is a lower endoscopy to examine the lower gastrointestinal tract. The endoscope or colonoscope is flexible and able to accommodate bends in the colon. A colonoscopy allows your doctor to see the largest area, including anus, rectum and colon.

Preparing for a colonoscopy includes:

Fasting for eight hours prior to the procedure.

Avoiding aspirin for seven days prior to the procedure if a biopsy (removing some tissue for analysis) will be performed. This will minimize the risk of bleeding.

Cleaning your colon using a bowel preparation. Your doctor will give you more details before your procedure.

What to expect during a colonoscopy:

You receive a sedative and are placed on your left side.

The colonoscope is inserted into the rectum and advances through your colon.

The colonoscope transmits images to a video monitor.

Your doctor examines your gastrointestinal tract and performs a biopsy if necessary.

While there is limited research on treating collagenous/lymphocytic colitis, the literature that does exist suggests that medication may bring relief to patients. Learn more about collagenous/lymphocytic colitis treatment at Johns Hopkins.

COVID-19 Took Black Lives First. It Didn’t Have To. – ProPublica

§ May 9th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on COVID-19 Took Black Lives First. It Didn’t Have To. – ProPublica

In Chicago, 70 of the citys 100 first recorded victims of COVID-19 were black. Their lives were rich, and their deaths cannot be dismissed as inevitable. Immediate factors could and should have been addressed.

ProPublica Illinois is a nonprofit newsroom that investigates abuses of power. Sign up to receive our biggest stories as soon as theyre published.

Larry Arnold lived less than a mile from a hospital but, stepping out of his South Side apartment with a 103-degree fever, he told the Uber driver to take him to another 30 minutes away.

Charles Miles breathing was so labored when a friend called to check on him that the friend called an ambulance. Still, Miles, a retired respiratory therapist, was reluctant to leave his home.

Close family support had helped Rosa Lynn Franklin recover from a stroke several years ago, but when she was admitted to the hospital in late March, her daughter could do little more than pat her on the back and say goodbye.

All three were among the first people to die of COVID-19 in Chicago, and all three were African American. Their deaths reflect the stunning racial disparity in the initial toll of the virus. Of the citys first 100 recorded victims, 70 were black.

As the pandemic has spread, that gap has narrowed, and Latinos now make up the largest portion of any reported demographic of confirmed cases across Illinois, state data shows. But the disparity in black deaths persists. As of early May, African Americans, who make up just 30% of Chicagos population, are about half of its more than 1,000 coronavirus deaths.

It has been well established that African Americans are dying of COVID-19 at a disproportionate rate in cities across America. ProPublica sought to explore the problem by examining the first 100 recorded deaths in Chicago, a city with a rich and often troubled history on issues of race.

Using a database obtained from the Cook County Medical Examiners Office that listed the names, health and location information of all COVID-19-related deaths, reporters reached out to the families and friends of each person who died. Reporters ultimately spoke with those who knew 22 of the victims; gleaned details about the lives of many others from obituaries and social media posts; and interviewed experts, medical professionals and government officials to understand how and why those first 100 died.

The racial disparities in coronavirus deaths have largely been attributed to endemic and entrenched inequalities in Chicago decades of disinvestment in the predominantly black neighborhoods on the South and West sides that have left residents with fewer jobs, poorer health and diminished opportunities. Those forces often are portrayed as intractable and, during a pandemic, nearly impossible to fix.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot acknowledged the challenge when she spoke publicly about the disparities last month and announced a plan to address them.

Were not going to reverse this in a moment, overnight, but we have to say it for what it is and move forward decisively as a city, and thats what we will do, she said. This is about health care accessibility, life expectancy, joblessness and hunger.

While all this is true, ProPublicas reporting also revealed other patterns, factors that could and should have been addressed and which almost certainly exist in other communities experiencing similar disparities. Even though many of these victims had medical conditions that made them particularly susceptible to the virus, they didnt always get clear or appropriate guidance about seeking treatment. They lived near hospitals that they didnt trust and that werent adequately prepared to treat COVID-19 cases. And perhaps most poignantly, the social connections that gave their lives richness and meaning and that played a vital role in helping them to navigate this segregated city that can at times feel hostile to black residents made them more likely to be exposed to the virus before its deadly power became apparent.

Many of the first 100 recorded Chicago COVID-19 victims led lives threaded through with community and civic involvement, powerfully connected to their city, to friends and family. Some had led careers of service, like Patricia Frieson, a retired nurse, and Rhoda Hatch, a former teacher, and Carl Redd, a U.S. Army veteran. Their small businesses helped shape their corners of the city; Hardwell Smith, 85, arrived in Chicago as part of the Great Migration from the Jim Crow South and established gas stations and auto repair shops on the South Side. They were church deacons and musicians; doting uncles like 32-year-old Carl White and nurturing mothers like Juliet Davis, who, despite her limited means, fed the homeless who lived under a neighborhood viaduct.

Most of the first 100 lived in majority-black neighborhoods, according to an analysis of medical examiner data; hardest hit were South Shore, Auburn Gresham and Austin, where the median income for 40% or more of the residents in each community is less than $25,000.

Many were already sick, with underlying health conditions. Seventy-eight of them had hypertension and 53 had diabetes. Just 12 had one health condition, and only five people had no comorbidities. James Brooks, a 27-year-old black man, was the youngest to die.

Im not surprised because every natural disaster will peel back the day-to-day covers over society and reveal the social fault lines that decide in some ways who gets to live and who gets to die, said Dr. David Ansell, senior vice president for community health equity at Rush University Medical Center. And in the United States, those vulnerabilities are often at the intersection of race and health.

Ansell, who wrote The Death Gap: How Inequality Kills, has spent decades documenting the life expectancy gap between black and white Chicagoans, which is the largest in the country. Structural racism, concentrated poverty, economic exploitation and chronic stress cause whats known as biological weathering, Ansell said, where the body ages prematurely and results in earlier death.

Who dies first is different for each pandemic, said Dr. Howard Markel, director of the Center for the History of Medicine at the University of Michigan. The coronaviruss earliest victims, he said, were the most vulnerable.

Theyre not quite forgotten, but we dont pay close enough attention to the health and well-being of this segment of the population, he said. Then a microscopic organism comes and topples them over.

They were vulnerable, but their deaths cannot be dismissed as inevitable.

Phillip Thomas, 48, started to feel sick while working a day shift at the Walmart in Evergreen Park. A diabetic, he was cautious about his health, and he reached out to a doctor, who told him to stay home and self-quarantine in case he had the coronavirus.

About a week into his bedrest, Thomas told his sister Angela McMiller that he was having a hard time standing up and was vomiting, no longer able to keep anything down. She encouraged him to go to the emergency room, but he didnt immediately go, citing the doctors advice to stay home.

Within a couple of days, he called an ambulance, which took him to Jackson Park Hospital, where he was intubated. Two days later, on March 29, he died, in the hospital where he was born.

When McMiller next saw her brother, it was at his funeral, which only 10 people could attend because of social distancing requirements. It was devastating, said McMiller. My mother fell down, my brothers cried.

McMiller is upset that her brother was told to stay home when he was sick, particularly considering the additional risks posed by his health history.

It shocked me, she said. He was diabetic.

Since the earliest days of the pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions guidelines have emphasized staying home when symptoms are mild. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care, the CDC says on its website. It recommends people call a doctor before going to get care in person, unless experiencing emergency signs like trouble breathing, blue lips or chest pain.

But experts told ProPublica that this one-size-fits-all advice does not account for the fact that African Americans are not only more likely to have preexisting conditions that increase their chances of bad outcomes, but also have a long-standing wariness of the health care system.

There is this distrust between black communities and health care systems based on this fraught history of how health care systems have exploited and abused black people, said Dr. Uch Blackstock, an emergency medicine physician in Brooklyn and the founder and CEO of Advancing Health Equity. What happens as a result of that is that patients dont want to interface with the health care system.

In addition, doctors said patients may delay seeking care out of a fear of the medical bills, lack of insurance or transportation barriers all of which underscores the need for targeted guidance. So instead of encouraging staying at home, these doctors want guidance to encourage African American patients to proactively seek care before symptoms get out of hand.

Dr. Mira Iliescu-Levine, a pulmonary critical care doctor at The Loretto Hospital on Chicagos West Side, is concerned that African American and Latino patients are waiting to come to the hospital after their symptoms become too severe.

You end up with an overwhelming clinical picture, almost like a tornado, thats very hard to stop, she said.

She said she wants patients, especially her African American patients with diabetes, obesity and other comorbidities, to seek care when they have innocent symptoms like a cough, runny nose, itchy eyes or low-grade fever.

Earlier treatment does not guarantee a better outcome, she said, but it can give the patient a fighting chance.

Reach out, she said. Dont wait.

Asked whether the CDC would consider tailoring its recommendations to reflect the underlying health conditions and barriers to care in African American communities, a spokesperson said the CDC is collecting data to monitor and track disparities among racial and ethnic groups to help inform decisions on how to effectively address observed disparities. We will continue to update our recommendations as we learn more.

The CDC spokesperson said the agency has increased engagement with organizations and other partners representing and serving racial and ethnic minority groups to identify gaps in the current response efforts, and that people should never avoid emergency rooms or wait to see a doctor if you feel your symptoms are serious.

On the first day, Willie Flake, a 72-year-old mechanic, lost his ability to taste. Then, he lost his appetite. With each new coronavirus symptom he experienced, his sister Betty and her daughter Yolanda pushed him to go to the hospital.

But Flake, who had diabetes, stayed home because he thought his symptoms were not severe enough to go to the emergency room. He soon developed a fever. By the fourth day, he had trouble breathing.

Flake took an ambulance to Rush University Medical Center on March 27, where his condition appeared to stabilize before worsening again.

They say, Dont come in until your fever is high and you cant breathe, Yolanda Flake said. Thats the part where I feel like they failed him. He waited until he couldnt breathe and it was too late.

In the early hours of April 1, his sister and niece put on masks and gloves and looked through the glass window of his hospital room. He had been like a father to Yolanda, attended every graduation, from kindergarten through college, and had recently accompanied her to buy a car for her daughter, his 23-year-old grandniece, LaSeanda.

Yolanda said she wished she could have been with him inside the room, regardless of the risks.

I wanted to touch him, she said. I wanted to talk to him before he took his last breath. I couldnt say it through the glass door.

And then, his heart stopped.

He waited at home, Yolanda said, and he was dying already.

Larry Arnold also waited, not because he was instructed to, but because he didnt trust his neighborhood hospitals.

Two Jackson Park Hospital and South Shore Hospital sit within five minutes of his home. Both are century-old nonprofit facilities that serve majority low-income and uninsured patients on the South Side. When Arnold started to feel sick in mid-March, he worried that if he called an ambulance, it would take him to one or the other. He didnt want to go to either.

What upsets me is that we dont have adequate medical facilities where we can go to and feel like well be cared for, his niece Angelyn Vanderbilt said. Im sure theyre very good people but the consensus in the community is that those hospitals are inadequate and they have been for years.

After his fever didnt subside for a few days, Arnold, who was 70 and had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, knew he couldnt wait any longer, his family said. He got into an Uber with a temperature of 103 and told the driver to take him to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, some 30 minutes away.

On March 31, 16 days after he was admitted, the nurse put the phone to Arnolds ear one last time.

We told him to be strong and to continue to fight, Vanderbilt said.

He died about an hour later.

People who live on Chicagos South and West sides are often at a geographic disadvantage during medical crises because the hospitals that are closest to them frequently are those with fewer resources.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker acknowledged the hardships at a press briefing last month. The safety-net hospitals are challenged in our state, and the availability of health care in communities of color has been at a lower quality or lower availability than in other communities, he said.

The citys safety-net hospitals, facilities that serve a large portion of low-income and uninsured patients regardless of their ability to pay, dont have the private-insurance patient base or the cash reserves to fall back on during a pandemic that many larger hospitals have, said Larry Singer, associate professor at the Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy at Loyola University Chicago School of Law. Some are millions of dollars in the red and housed in aging buildings. And while their mission is a valiant one, he said, they have not been able to respond to the coronavirus as quickly or with the same equipment and staffing.

Theyre trying to fight the same fight as everybody else with one arm tied behind their back, Singer said. They deserve the resources to do an even better job. Im truly impressed by what they are trying to achieve during a time of crisis.

Tim Caveney, president and CEO of South Shore Hospital, said that limited resources is one reason safety-net hospitals have struggled to earn the trust of the communities they serve. Safety net [hospitals] have gotten a bad beat because we dont have much money. Its a funding issue, he said, adding that the pandemic has aggravated South Shores financial issues. Not only have lucrative elective surgeries been postponed, but COVID-19 patients often require complex and lengthy care, which can be expensive.

Black Neighborhoods Are Served by Fewer, Lower-Resourced Hospitals

Safety-net hospitals have more limited resources because a large portion of their patients have low incomes or are uninsured.

Dr. Khalilah Gates, an African American pulmonary and critical care specialist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital who has family on the South Side, said she is painfully aware that some black patients may prefer to wait it out or travel to distant hospitals.

Both of those are very common phenomenons, she said. Not all community hospitals, but many of the community hospitals in those communities lack the resources that offer security to the residents in those areas.

ProPublica spoke with several families who said their loved ones either delayed care because they didnt want to go to neighborhood hospitals or ultimately wound up in those hospitals as a last resort.

Miles, the retired respiratory therapist, had worked for about 40 years at Northwestern Memorial Hospital providing breathing treatments for patients there. When he started feeling sick in mid-March, he knew what resources he might need.

A friend called him on March 22 and heard his labored breathing. He told Miles that he was calling an ambulance, but Miles resisted, in part, because he didnt want to be taken to Jackson Park, the nearest hospital.

He shouldve been in there a week before that, said his sister Roselle Jones. But he was insistent on not going.

The paramedics said that they had to take him to Jackson Park because it was the closest hospital. Miles family asked that he be transferred to another hospital, but once he tested positive for the coronavirus, a doctor told the family that Miles couldnt be moved, Jones said.

By the end of the week, Miles had been sedated and placed on a ventilator. He died on April 3.

We wanted him out of there. We wanted him somewhere he could get some good care, Jones said. The doors should be closed, and the building torn down.

Philman Williams family also said they tried in vain to get him transferred out of Jackson Park after an ambulance took him there. Williams, 70, worked as a doorman at a luxury high-rise where residents dubbed him the Mayor of Michigan Avenue for his charm and good humor. Not only was his doctor at another hospital, but the family worried about the quality of care he would receive.

A day after he was admitted, their concerns were amplified by a news story detailing reports from employees that the hospital did not have enough personal protective equipment, prompting nurses to avoid entering patient rooms.

Nurses who were sick and those afraid to come to work because they had elderly relatives at home have led to staffing shortages, said Kindra Perkins, a representative with National Nurses United, the union that represents nurses at Jackson Park. One day, an ambulance couldnt drop off a patient because there were only two nurses working in the emergency room, she said.

The nurses deserve to have the resources that they need to provide the quality care in that community, and the people in that community are just as important as the folks on the North Side of Chicago, Perkins said.

Margo Brooks-Pugh, a vice president of development at Jackson Park Hospital, did not answer specific questions, but she wrote in an email that the hospital takes patient and staff safety seriously.

Jackson Park Hospital follows all guidelines and standards as related to patient care and safety, she wrote.

Austin, on the West Side, is one of the citys largest and most chronically underserved areas. It has become a hot spot for COVID-19 cases. The Loretto Hospital, a small nonprofit that has been an anchor in the community for more than 90 years, is the primary provider in the area. Like many of the safety-net hospitals in Chicago, it has struggled financially for years.

When Asberry Stoudemire Jr., a 54-year-old diabetic, got a runny nose, then felt his blood sugar levels begin to fall, his family knew he needed to get care quickly. He also had a history of congestive heart failure, which had forced the avid stepper and musician to retire early from his job as a certified nursing assistant. The Loretto Hospital wasnt their first choice or their second. But it was the closest. Within hours of arriving at Loretto, his condition deteriorated so rapidly that he was sedated and intubated.

His daughter Miranda Stoudemire said she had trouble getting a clear sense of what was going on in the 10 days her father spent in the hospitals recently reopened 15-bed ICU. Loretto couldnt afford to keep the unit up and running before the pandemic, a fate hospital administrators said they fear could be repeated without an infusion of cash as the pandemic continues.

He was saying, I know one thing, Im not going to Loretto, she said. But he did, and she is resolute in her belief that her father would have lived longer had he been at a better resourced hospital. His family tried having him transferred but said they were told he was too critical to be moved.

I feel like he didnt even have a chance to fight, she said.

He died March 29.

Mark A. Walker, spokesman for The Loretto Hospital, said that the hospital has the capacity to care for its patients and is doing its best to communicate with families.

This hospital has gone through hard times, he said. Were doing everything we can. Were learning along with everybody else. But better resourced communities dont have to fight for the same divvy of health care resources that we do.

Although L.B. Perry was 78 and suffered from hypertension and diabetes, nothing usually kept him in bed. So when he didnt wake at 6:30 for his morning oatmeal and coffee, his family began to worry.

As he grew weaker and needed help walking to the bathroom, his family urged him to go to the hospital. After a few days, he relented and went to Holy Cross Hospital in Chicago Lawn on the South Side, but he was sent home, his daughter Vernice Perry said.

Thats why Im so upset, she said. He was in the age bracket, and he has all these health conditions, and he had some of the symptoms.

His condition worsened at home, and his daughter said she begged him to let her drive him to another hospital. Four days later, his wife called an ambulance in the early morning of March 30, and he returned to Holy Cross Hospital. He died on April 2.

Dan Regan, a spokesperson for Sinai Health System, did not answer questions about specific patients, citing privacy restrictions. He said that its hospitals, including Holy Cross, are thoroughly prepared for handling the COVID-19 pandemic, having created dedicated COVID-19 teams, using mobile triage trailers outside facilities to handle sick patients, and isolating COVID-19 patients in specialized rooms.

It is worth noting though that the challenging nature of COVID-19 is that patients can look fine at one point and be discharged home with monitoring and follow-up, only to deteriorate and have to return to the hospital, said Regan. This has been seen in many cases nationwide.

At least 110 patients from community hospitals, including Holy Cross, have been transferred to Rush University Medical Center, a large, well-equipped facility that has been touted as having been built for a pandemic.

Theyre really patients that otherwise, in all likelihood, would not survive at those hospitals, said Dr. Paul Casey, Rushs acting chief medical officer. The resources just arent the same. Nor is the ability within critical care to provide a lot of the life-saving therapies.

On April 6, when Mayor Lightfoot publicly announced that the coronavirus was disproportionately affecting the citys black residents, the virus had been in Chicago at least since January, and more than 100 people were dead. The majority were black.

When we talk about equity and inclusion, theyre not just nice notions, Lightfoot said at the time. They are an imperative that we must embrace as a city. And we see this even more urgently when we look at these numbers and this disparity. Its unacceptable. No one should think that this is OK.

That day, the city announced the Racial Equity Rapid Response Team in partnership with West Side United, with a goal to bring a hyper local public health strategy to targeted communities. In the weeks since, the team has held tele-town halls, delivered thousands of door hangers and postcards with targeted information, and distributed 60,000 masks for residents in the predominantly black communities of Austin, Auburn Gresham and South Shore.

Dr. Allison Arwady, the citys public health commissioner said in an interview that officials had worked behind the scenes to combat rumors that black people couldnt contract the coronavirus, reaching out to community and faith leaders on the South and West sides in February and March to let them know the city was seeing cases across all races.

Arwady said the department at first hoped to contain the spread. It had tracked the cases for weeks as the virus crept through the city, and then exploded. By the end of March, more than 40 Chicagoans had died from the virus, according to the county medical examiner data, though the city said its tally of deaths was less than half of that.

For the most part, Lightfoot has received plaudits for her handling of the pandemic. Illinois was one of the first states in the country to release statistics on COVID-19 deaths by race. Lightfoot herself has even become something of a national political star, with viral videos and memes of her urging residents to stay home. She also gave several high-profile interviews discussing the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on black communities and emphasizing the importance of tracking demographic data.

The city also encountered some challenges. Early on, it found that up to 30% of the testing data it collected didnt list race. At the April 6 press conference, which came one day after a WBEZ news report detailed the death disparities, the city released a detailed race analysis. The city also issued a public health order mandating demographic data of COVID-19 cases be reported in hopes of being better able to track and assist individuals and communities falling victim to the coronavirus.

Still, to some in the community, the city appeared a step behind. Niketa Brar, co-founder and executive director at Chicago United for Equity, which advocates for racial equity in the city, said officials didnt do enough to engage the communities they knew would be hardest hit. As soon as the virus entered Chicago, she said, the city should have used racial, health and economic data to predict where it would take hold and then begin working with residents in those communities on how best to protect and support them. The Racial Equity Rapid Response Team was dispatched much later, she said.

The Psychological Toll of Working on the Front Lines: Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s coronavirus podcast for May 6 – CNN

§ May 9th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on The Psychological Toll of Working on the Front Lines: Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s coronavirus podcast for May 6 – CNN

You can listen on your favorite podcast app or read the transcript below.

Jake Tapper, CNN Anchor, "The Lead" and "State of the Union": Doctors and nurses risking their lives to save you and me and patients.

Dr. Ken Duckworth, chief medical officer, National Alliance of Mental Illness: I do worry about our first responders and health care workers, in terms of the trauma they are exposed to.

Ana Cabrera, CNN Anchor: Even physicians are victims of this unprecedented public emergency.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Since the beginning of this pandemic, health care workers have been dealing with this virus head-on, putting their own physical health at risk.

According to a CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] report released in April, more than 9,0000 health care workers have been infected with the coronavirus. ... And because of the limited data we have, that number is likely higher.

But we shouldn't forget the other risks our health care workers are facing. I'm talking about the emotional and psychological ones.

[Pots and pans banging, people cheering for health care workers]

Gupta: Every night in cities around the world, we celebrate our health care workers. But the thing is, even before this pandemic, their jobs were demanding.

They're in high-stress life-and-death situations with long hours.

So in this episode, I want to talk about the pandemic's psychological cost to the people on the front lines -- and what's being done to help them.

I'm Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent. And this is "Coronavirus: Fact vs. Fiction."

Dr. Philip Breen: She was a doctor. Every bit of the word that a doctor should be. She put her life on the line to take care of other people.

Last week, Dr. Breen, a New York City emergency room doctor, died by suicide.

She had actually contracted Covid-19 herself. After recovering she went back to work.

Breen: She was like the fireman who runs into the burning building to save another life and doesn't regard anything about herself.

Gupta: There is so much about this virus that is new and unfamiliar, making everyday life more challenging.

I've heard that from my colleagues.

Every day they wonder: Are they safe? And if their families and loved ones are safe as well.

I recently spoke with Dr. Steven McDonald. He's an ER doctor at the same hospital as Dr. Breen.

He's been on the front line for weeks, taking care of patient after patient ... after patient. New York has been the US' pandemic epicenter, with more than 321,000 people infected and 25,000 deaths.

I asked Dr. McDonald about how he's coping with his everyday reality as well as the loss of a colleague, and how he's taking care of his own mental health.

Gupta: So how is life, Dr. McDonald?

Dr. Steven McDonald: First of all, things are changing day-to-day. I think life a month ago looked very different than only two weeks ago than it does today. Thankfully, emergency department volumes are significantly down.

But also, as you can imagine, the tenor of my department is depressed. We just lost one of our faculty members, one of our physicians. And so there's definitely a pall that's been cast over my department -- in addition to this pandemic.

Gupta: I'm so sorry to hear that. I don't think people always recognize both the physical and psychological toll on frontline workers like yourself. At what point for you did it become something that was personally frightening?

McDonald: As we were approaching the peak, I would walk into the emergency room and it was in a state of chaos. And it was overwhelming to an extent that I had never really seen before. It felt -- I keep describing it as though a caged animal had been kind of let loose, and no one could see it or get it back into the cage.

Gupta: Wow. You know, I've been -- I finished med school in 1993, so I've been doing this for a long time. And typically, you know, the family is there. There's an additional line of support.

But what you're describing is people who are coming in, almost always by themselves because families can't come in. And now they find themselves in a position where they may suddenly die. It's tough. I don't mean to paint it so stark, but it sounds like that is the reality, at least in some of these situations.

Let me ask: How worried were you about contracting the virus yourself?

McDonald: If I'm being honest, you know, early on, I think this was probably mid-March when this was first starting. I had a moment at home by myself, borne out of complete irrationality, where I suddenly was convinced that I was going to die of this. I can't explain to you where that came from. I think it was just maybe having read a couple too many of these cases and having talked to a couple of colleagues who had pronounced young people dead of this.

And I just suddenly was gripped by that conviction. And it was frightening. It was really frightening, just to feel like there's nothing that I can do in this. I have truly no agency over my death in some regard. There's no amount of PPE that will protect me from this. And I know that to be irrational. I know that to not be true, but I was so gripped by it in one moment.

Gupta: I agree with you, and I think that's a really interesting way to put it. You know, we do all the right things, but there are things in life, especially with a microscopic virus that's inexplicable. So you're really putting yourself at risk.

McDonald: Right.

Gupta: Did you ever think about sitting it out? Saying, you know what? It's not worth it.

McDonald: You know, I did have a moment where -- I think it was a Sunday night and I had my first shift in a couple of weeks on the Monday. And I was, to be totally honest with you, I was a wreck. I was a wreck. I was calling family and friends. And I was really upset.

And I was thinking about the number of people who I was going to have to pronounce dead or have to have end-of-life conversations with. And I found it so overwhelming in the abstract on that Sunday night.

I thankfully have a great support network, a great therapist -- and spoke with her a bit and was able to sort of pull myself together and work and be a physician the next day. But that was a difficult 24 hours.

Gupta: You know, Steven, it's always struck me that even within the medical community, there is still a stigma about seeking therapy, seeking mental health support. Yet it's so important, maybe never more important, than it is right now.

Do you sense that stigma? I mean, has it manifested at all in your life?

McDonald: I mean, you know, absolutely. I would say physicians don't talk about mental health issues. I don't know if any job is really that open about this, but I think medicine in general breeds a culture of silence about this.

Gupta: And you do hear about physicians who die by suicide. Compared to the general community, it's typically higher across the board.

There was a lot of news about Dr. Breen lately. And I know you knew her somewhat. When you heard this, were you surprised?

McDonald: Absolutely. I was completely floored. She always -- again, I only knew her in a professional capacity, but she struck me as someone who was so self-possessed and so capable, really tough as nails and able to deal with any situation head-on.

And, you know, I esteem all of my colleagues as being that tough.

Gupta: Has there been anything good that's come out of this for you?

McDonald: So I think there has been incredible camaraderie among physicians. At the peak of this, we had orthopedists and urologists coming down and managing critically ill patients and doing blood draws and doing things that are way below their level of training just to help out, and to see colleagues who were so willing to be part of this effort was really inspiring.

You know, secondly, and I think this remains to be borne out, but one hope that I have: This virus, I think is sort of peeling back the onion skin and showing us at the core of American society, things that really need attention on a federal and legislative level.

So, the inequalities that this is exposing, the problems in the health care system that this is exposing.

And I hope that these are conversations that are started and carry weight and are not forgotten after we beat this thing.

Gupta: Camaraderie as well, you're absolutely right about -- I've seen that in our own hospital. Although it does make me think of this joke that you probably heard: the definition of a double-blind study?

McDonald: No?

Gupta: Two orthopedic surgeons trying to read an EKG.

McDonald: Hahahaha. I love that. I will not be telling that to my orthopedic colleagues, but I love that.

Gupta: I want to ask you about, you know, if there's been a best moment and a worst moment.

McDonald: Yes. Worst moment for me was. ... It was during the peak, and I was coming into a shift. I received sign-out on probably 40 patients who were all critically ill.

And so I was in this awful situation where I was pulled into one room to be with a critical patient who was dying. And then the nurse comes and gets me and says, you also have a critical patient who's dying in this other room.

And so I run through to this other room, and this woman is near death. Her heart has nearly stopped. Her oxygen levels are falling. She's already on a ventilator. She was in her late 80s.

And the team is, the team of residents is looking to me, to ask: What are we going to do when this woman's heart stops, as it appears it's going to in the next 10 seconds, 15 seconds? And this woman had no established advanced directives. And we had made multiple attempts to get in touch with family and were unable to.

And, you know, all the data shows that someone of this age who's already on a ventilator, this person is not going to live no matter what interventions you make. And so, talking to you now, it seems very obvious to not attempt to prolong life. But in that moment, it was very hard for me to make that decision. It was -- there was no clarity about it.

And so, I declined to perform CPR. But then I felt terribly about that in the moment. That was really the lowest moment I've had during this, where I just felt like I ended someone's life without any data.

I guess, in terms of bright spots of this -- so you're familiar, I'm sure, with the 7 o'clock clap for providers and essential workers. And so, after Lorna Breen's passing, I was working that next day. And we did at 7 o'clock go out to the front of the emergency department.

All the doctors who were able and the nurses and everyone, and we just had a hell of a clap for those whom we've lost. And it doesn't in any way redeem what's happened. But it was a really nice moment of camaraderie and to celebrate the accomplishments of those whom we've lost, including Dr. Breen.

Gupta: Wow. Well, I mean, going back to the worst moment for a second, for what it's worth, Steven, that was a tough decision. I'm sorry that obviously left such a mark on you. But from what you described, you know, it was the correct decision.

McDonald: Thank you.

Gupta: Do you worry that you're suffering from post-traumatic stress?

McDonald: It's hard to say. I mean, I think like post-traumatic stress disorder, when you're in the thick of it, you don't think about it. And it's only once things calm down that you begin to have things like flashbacks or intrusive thoughts.

So far, I've been very fortunate in that I have not had those symptoms, but I can't tell you with any certainty that I won't in the future. And so that is a perpetual source of anxiety and concern.

Gupta: Well, I mean, I will clap harder and cheer even louder after hearing your story about how that made you feel. I mean, it's the least I think that people can do and people really owe you a debt of gratitude. So, thank you very much.

There'll be books written about the sort of work that you've done. I know you're in the midst of it right now, so it's hard to sense that, but thank you.

McDonald: Thank you. Thank you so much.

Gupta: Like Dr. McDonald said, doctors are facing so many challenges right now. There are these long, demanding shifts, the risk of exposure to the virus and the number of patients that are dying, which is unlike anything we have ever dealt with before.

Dr. John Krystal, Yale University professor of psychiatry and neuroscience and Yale-New Haven Hospital chief of psychiatry: You know you think of the first wave of illness being the wave of patients coming in and presenting with illness. But for these health care workers, the stresses are somewhat cumulative.

And so you can think of a second wave of stress coming through for the Covid health care workers.

Gupta: That was Dr. John Krystal. He heads the psychiatry department at both Yale University and Yale-New Haven Hospital. He's been tasked with leading a group that identifies health care providers who are struggling and provides them with support.

Krystal: One kind of support that we have is giving people a place they can drop into any day they want, every day, five days a week. We have what we call stress and resilience town halls. They're open to everybody in the community: staff, trainees, doctors.

The idea was they should connect to deal with the isolation that they're often feeling. They should unload, you know, they should just share what it is that they're going through and then to learn a few skills. And so we teach people relaxation skills, and we teach people sleep hygiene. And so far, I think in our community, over 1,400 people have made use of them.

Gupta: Dr. Krystal and his team also established a buddy system -- pairing health care workers with their peers. And then they dispatched volunteers to provide psychological support to anyone who wants it, over the phone.

But both Dr. Krystal and Dr. McDonald bring up a more deeply rooted issue about the culture of medicine.

Krystal: You know, some of the challenges are that some of the characteristics that we have historically admired most about physicians: They're willing to sacrifice themselves for others, their reluctance to complain about things.

All of those are admirable, wonderful traits, but somehow, we haven't always inculcated in the values of our medical system that self-care is as much a duty and a responsibility as caring for the patient.

And my hope is that this is an opportunity to have broader discussion about that. And to make it OK for more doctors who need help to seek help.

Gupta: This pandemic has really tried and tested the best of us.

But I am thankful that mental health services are available for our doctors and medical workers who need it the most.

A fund was recently set up in honor of Dr. Breen -- it's called the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes' Fund, and it's there to provide mental health services to medical workers.

It's my sincere hope that the support that's been marshaled to help health care workers in this pandemic will last beyond this moment -- that they'll become a fixture in the way we think about care.

We'll be back tomorrow. Thanks for listening.

UPDATED: May 8, 2020

Life in L.A. is changing again, and it's just the beginning.

Californians spent nearly two months under orders to stay home unless working essential jobs or seeking essential services. Businesses shut down, schools went online, nature was closed, and an astonishing number of people lost their jobs.

The road to reopening will be paved in waves.

This first set of restriction changes are here, and they fall under "Phase 2" of Gov. Gavin Newsom's state plan. His model hinges on six metrics, and phases on phases. L.A. County has a plan too, but that's structured more as stages and batches. And L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti also has a plan. His is based on five key pillars. If this all sounds confusing, that's because it is.

Here's where we currently are:

Meanwhile, the U.S. still has the highest number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the world, the local numbers are continuing to rise, and we are still publishing and updating this massive resource guide.

For months we've been doing what we can to help combat fear, anxiety, frustration, and confusion by:

Everyone here in the LAist newsroom takes our essential work as journalists very seriously. Most of us have been working from home since March 11. We're here for the long haul.

We remain committed to helping you understand the changing reality, and confront the recovery ahead, while we all do our best to slow the spread of this deadly disease.

This is what we know, so far.

On January 30, a "Public Health Emergency of International Concern" was declared by the World Health Organization over an outbreak of a new, deadly, novel coronavirus which began in Wuhan City, China.

On February 11, WHO announced "COVID-19" as the name of he disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. COVID-19 is an abbreviation of "coronavirus disease 2019."

On March 4, L.A. County declared a local and public emergency, and Gov. Gavin Newsom made the call to declare an emergency for the state of California the same day.

On March 11, WHO made it official: COVID-19 is a pandemic.

On March 19, California, the nation's most populous state, ordered its nearly 40 million residents to stay home and practice social distancing (there are exceptions).

On March 26, the United States surpassed China as the country with highest total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the world.

On April 11, the U.S. became the nation with the most confirmed COVID-19 deaths.

The global total is now more than 267,000 deaths and over 3,813,000 confirmed cases. The local total is more than 1,360 deaths and over 28,600 confirmed cases.

You can track the global scope and spread with this map and list from Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center. And these U.S. numbers from the CDC are updated daily.

The map below also shows cumulative confirmed cases, deaths, and recoveries. It's updated in near real-time throughout the day. Zoom out to see more of the world.

The data is maintained by the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering, which pulls from: World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China, local media reports, local health departments, and the DXY.

BACK TO TOP

A local public health emergency was declared by county officials on March 4.

The first possible community spread case meaning the source of infection was unknown was announced on March 9.

L.A. County announced the first death from COVID-19 on March 11.

Confirmed cases and deaths are being tracked on the public health department's website.

On March 15, L.A. County officials said they were closing all offices to the public, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti issued a moratorium on evictions, and an executive order banning dine-in restaurants and entertainment facilities went into effect at midnight.

L.A. County followed with a similar list of actions, closures, and restrictions the following day, including strongly discouraging gatherings of more than 50 people.

The "Safer at Home" emergency order was issued by L.A. County and city leaders on March 19. It includes the following directives:

"I want to be clear about this," said L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti during the announcement, "that the only time you should leave your home is for essential activities and needs to get food, care for a relative or a friend or child, get necessary health care," and the like.

Jobs that are critical to safety, health, and the security of city, as well as an "economy of recovery," are exempt. Examples Garcetti cited:

But social distancing must be enforced in all of these cases.

You are allowed to go outside, take a walk, and enjoy an open space. But some outdoor areas are off-limits because of crowding. And even in outside, you are required to stay 6 feet away from people.

On March 25, Garcetti said the stay-at-home order would likely be in place until May.

On the same day, public health officials issued an Emergency Quarantine Order and an Emergency Isolation Order. Here's when to home-quarantine, and when to self-isolate.

On March 27, Garcetti tonight used what may have been his strongest language yet to urge people to heed his stay-at-home orders.

"These aren't suggestions, I remind you, these are orders. We are in the midst of a pandemic," Garcetti said.

The city punctuated that message with a piercing emergency alert sent moments after his nightly address reminding people to keep staying at home, and to only go out for essential activities. L.A. County sent an alert as well.

Official guidance on general mask-wearing arrived on April 1. Garcetti made the recommendation that all residents wear face coverings whenever they're out of the house and interacting with people.

About a week later, that was changed to a requirement. Shoppers and store employees must wear face masks starting April 10.

L.A. County echoed with a face covering ordinance a few days later, bringing some uniformity to the patchwork of mask rules across the 88 cities. You now have to wear a mask when shopping anywhere in L.A. County.

County health officials have also extended the stay-at-home order to May 15. They laid out new data that shows current social distancing practices are working but we need to do better.

We are bending the curve, but if we stop physical distancing, the projection is that "virtually all residents in Los Angeles County would have been exposed or infected with COVID-19" by mid-summer, said the director of L.A. County's Department of Health Services.

Testing was still only being recommended for people who were symptomatic.

Garcetti said he doesn't see large gatherings like concerts happening again this year, but relative normalcy may come sooner. Similar to Gov. Gavin Newsom's six strategies, the mayor laid out five key marks for the city to hit in order to lift the stay-at-home order:

On April 17, Garcetti said testing capacity has increased and urged everyone with symptoms to get a free test.

Based on the current modeling, mid-May is the projection to begin rolling back the current restrictions, said Barbara Ferrer, director of the L.A. County Department of Public Health at a briefing on April 21. But, she said, there is no "magic day."

Ferrer said on April 22 that CDC staff members would be helping the health department improve infection control practices at skilled nursing facilities, and that approximately 40% of all deaths countywide have been at institutional facilities.

On April 23, COVID-19 became the leading cause of death in L.A. County, surpassing coronary heart disease, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and the flu.

On April 27, Ferrer said that county residents living in areas with high rates of poverty are dying at a rate about three times that of communities with low poverty rates.

"This data is deeply disturbing and it speaks to the need for immediate action... this would mean increased testing, better access and connection to health care and support services, and more accurate culturally appropriate information about COVID-19, and we're joining with our partners in the community to make sure this happens."

On the same day, Mayor Garcetti said L.A. might be baby stepping toward normalcy in the next two to six weeks. There are plenty of caveats. There's also this: because what we've done is working, most of us could still get the coronavirus. "If we open up the wrong way," he said, 95% of us could get COVID-19 by August 1, citing a USC study.

Garcetti added "it's not really about a date, or how few cases you have it's about the infrastructure you have to handle opening up."

A day later he announced a major testing change: all L.A. city residents, even those without symptoms, could get tested for COVID-19, for free.

On May 4, Garcetti called the reopening situation "fluid," and said he thought by May 15 the city would be ready to take some steps forward. Ferrer said the city would be releasing recovery plan guidelines. This was in response to the Governor's expected order which may allow some businesses to re-open beginning May 8.

The mayor said that moving forward he would follow the county's guidelines on retail businesses. Curbside retail, he said, is something that might be allowed next week, or more likely, the following week.

The timeline from L.A. County officials the following day was different:

Certain businesses and recreational spaces in Los Angeles County would be allowed to start reopening on May 8. According to County Supervisor Kathryn Barger. Shops that are reopening are for curbside pickup only. All of the shopping still has to be done online or over the phone.

Barger said the easing of restrictions aligns with the state level, adding:

"This list is less about what products are sold and more about the ability to maintain social distancing. We are finalizing the details and we'll have all the information and guidelines for businesses up on our website before the order goes into effect."

Garcetti's address on May 6 was similar to the county's annoucement:

L.A.'s stay-at-home order will be amended to allow some low-risk businesses to reopen for curbside pick-up on May 8.

Here is the official guidance for businesses to "prepare and effectively manage the safety of employees and customers as they resume operations."

And on May 9, city and county hiking trails and golf courses will reopen for public use. The exception is Runyon Canyon, which will remain closed.

Strict rules will be in place. Garcetti said anyone using the open trails and golf courses must wear a face mask at all times.

Here's a list of businesses that will be allowed to reopen for curbside pick-up only in the city and county of L.A. on May 8:

Here's what will reopen on May 9:

Restrictions:

Also, all travelers at LAX are required to wear face coverings, as of May 11.

Here are current local totals of confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths.Here is an L.A. County breakdown by area.

BACK TO TOP

On March 15, Gov. Gavin Newsom called for far stricter guidelines in the state. He asked all seniors and people with underlying conditions to isolate at home, restaurants to operate at diminished capacity, and wineries, bars, and brewpubs to close.

In a March 18 letter to President Trump, Newsom projected that more than half of the population of California will be infected with the virus over an eight-week period. He asked for $1 billion in federal funding and requested the hospital ship USNS Mercy be sent to Los Angeles.

On March 19, about an hour after the L.A. County orders were announced, Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered all residents of California to stay home or otherwise remain at their place of residence in order to slow the spread of the virus. There are exceptions for people who maintain critical infrastructure in 16 key sectors, including:

On April 13, Newsom announced what he described as a shared framework with Oregon and Washington about how to economically reopen California. More details came April 14 with a plan that includes six key metrics for loosening the stay-at-home orders. They include:

The governor's tasked 80 leaders to help plan for the state's economic recovery, with an advisory council that includes all four of the state's living governors. He said the task force which will divide up into sub-groups covering entertainment, hospitality, retail, manufacturing, regional issues, etc. will work on actionable ideas in real time, not some future report.

Newsom said on April 21 that local officials can lift some stay-at-home restrictions, as long as they don't conflict with state orders. His comments, made a daily press briefing, were in response to a question about Riverside County opening up golf courses and Port Hueneme opening beaches.

The governor reviewed testing numbers on April 22, saying the 465,000 tests administered so far in California were not enough to modify stay-at-home orders.

On April 27, Newsom said he hoped the state was weeks, not months, away from making significant changes to the stay-at-home orders but that those decisions will be driven by data, and require people to abide by physical distancing orders.

As an example of what not to do, he brought up the photos of people crowding the beaches in Orange and Ventura counties. He gave special attention to Newport Beach's weekend crowding situation.

Newsom has phases on phases to go with his six key metrics. On April 28, he laid out a "resilience roadmap" with four steps towards a full reopen. He also said that despite distributing millions of masks, the state is not even close to where it need to be with personal protective equipment yet.

Newsom said on April 29 that the state was possibly "a week or two away from significant modifications on our stay-at-home order," as long as coronavirus numbers remained stable.

Two days later the governor said the state is now "days, not weeks" away.

On May 4, Newsom said parts of the state would start moving into Phase 2 of reopening on May 8, and that guidlines would be forthcoming. This phase includes changes like retail beginning to reopen for pickup. Here's more on the six key metrics on the "State Reopening Roadmap Report Card."

Social/physical distancing is even more important in Phase 2, he said on May 5.

BACK TO TOP

Note: President Trump usually opens coronavirus news briefings with his own remarks. His comments in a number of past briefings have later been contradicted by information provided by other officials. He has also repeatedly used stigmatizing language to describe COVID-19. Following the president's remarks, health experts and other adminstration leaders provide additional updates.

Voluntary, nationwide guidelines were announced on March 16, initially set to last for 15 days.

President Trump and the White House coronavirus task force asked Americans to close schools, avoid groups of more than 10 people, homeschool kids where possible, avoid discretionary travel, and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, and food courts.

On March 18, the border between the U.S. and Canada was closed for "non-essential" travel. On March 20 came an announcement closing the U.S. and Mexico border to non-essential travel.

Meanwhile, a Level 4, "Do Not Travel" global health advisory was issued by the U.S. State Department advising all citizens to "avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19."

At a March 23 briefing, Trump said the REAL ID deadline will be postponed and that surgical and N95 masks would be distributed by FEMA. An executive order was also announced by Attorney General William Barr making certain items illegal to hoard.

Delegation for 5.8.20: Stimulus & safety protecting PPP SLITHER Trojan horse? noob progressives – Florida Politics

§ May 8th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Delegation for 5.8.20: Stimulus & safety protecting PPP SLITHER Trojan horse? noob progressives – Florida Politics

Safety versus economy

This week brought two examples of the stark realities facing Florida and the entire country with the continuing struggle to find the appropriate balance between health and a crashing economy. The loss of life, coupled with the fear of much more, is on the same stage as the staggering loss of millions of jobs announced Friday.

Dont open too soon is face-to-face with hurry up before a recession or depression sets in. The hurry-up line was personified this week by the Texas beauty salon owner, Shelley Luther, who defied guidelines and a judge who ordered her to apologize for being selfish by violating the stay home edict and apologize for ignoring a court order.

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther would rather go to jail than close shop, despite a restraining order. Image via AP.

Luther noted that feeding my kids wasnt selfish as she respectfully refused to comply, landing her in jail and making her a national figure. With the recognition that individuals cannot decide what laws to obey came further recognition that putting her in jail while other jurisdictions released others due specifically to coronavirus concerns made for poor optics.

The Texas Supreme Court ordered Luther released one day before salons could legally open. A Go Fund Me page on her behalf had reached $500,000 before her release.

President Donald Trump caused a stir when he said this week the coronavirus task force would be winding down with emphasis shifting toward reopening the economy. After a public outcry and no doubt some pushback internally, the President reversed course within 24 hours.

Last month, Trump appointed the Opening Up America Again Congressional Group. To gain multiple perspectives on achieving the elusive balance. Florida is represented by Democratic Reps. Ted Deutch of Boca Raton, Stephanie Murphy of Winter Park and Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Fort Walton Beach, along with Sens. Rick Scott and Marco Rubio.

With Luther likely setting an example for others to soon follow and protests becoming more dangerous, a plan is quickly needed to soothe those in fear for public health and those who fear losing everything they own. How many of those urging continued lockdowns are out of a job, especially in Florida, where the states spit and duct tape system of getting relief to the unemployed is an ongoing tragedy?

Deutch has submitted detailed suggestions to the White House in the form of a slick, 34-page report titled Opening Up America Again Congressional Group: Next Steps. The report focuses on seven key areas beginning with prioritizing public health.

It continues with reopening the economy in the face of challenges and specifically Bringing our Businesses Back from the Brink. It continues with sections on ensuring everyone can contribute, helping students and young Americans, asserting global leadership, and concluding with ensuring safe and secure elections.

Now is the time to seriously consider where we stand as a country and what national priorities weve been ignoring, Deutch said in a statement following the reports release. Our immediate attention is to the health and safety of our nation. But we cant simply focus on how to get our economy back to where it was.

He characterized the report as offering the opportunity to look ahead, exemplified by his suggestions on pursuing infrastructure spending, reengaging with the World Health Organization (WHO), and other global health security measures, as well as looking at the likelihood of telework becoming more widely used in businesses going forward.

If we dont use this pause now to think about what needs to change and do something different, we will be playing catch-up to the rest of the world and leaving future generations woefully underprepared, he said.

Protecting PPP

Despite reports of big businesses obtaining forgivable loans designed for small businesses under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the problem seems to be minimal. In remarks on the Senate floor, Rubio said the focus on the few publicly traded businesses who gamed the system is a microscopic amount of those who were awarded funding.

They have taken 0.35% of the funds that were approved. Not 35%, not 3.5% 0.35% of the money thats been lent, Rubio said. So its not like they took half the money, which is the perception thats been created out there in some of the coverage.

Marco Rubio says the number of big businesses that received PPP funds are minuscule. Image via AP.

Meanwhile, that means the rest of it went to somebody who is not publicly traded, so thats an extraordinary achievement nonetheless, and Im glad thats being looked at.

For those small businesses that have received part of the nearly $700 billion appropriated, Rubio and some of his Senate colleagues are already looking toward next year, especially when it is time to pay taxes. He joined with Republican Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa and John Cornyn of Texas, along with Democratic Senators Ron Wyden of Oregon and Tom Carper of Delaware to introduce the Small Business Expense Protection Act.

The bill, sponsored by Cornyn, would clarify the program so small businesses can deduct expenses paid with a forgiven PPP loan from their taxes. The need for the legislation came last week when the IRS issued a notice saying small businesses cannot deduct these business expenses.

The congressional intent of the PPP program was to keep workers connected to their jobs and to ease the financial burden on small businesses so they could weather this pandemic, Rubio, chairman of the Senate Small Business Committee, said.

Borrowers should not be penalized by new taxes because they sought help during this unprecedented crisis. I appreciate my colleagues Sen. Cornyn and Chairman Grassley, as well as Sen. Carper and Ranking Member Wyden for introducing this bill to rectify IRSs ruling.

Growing debt

The massive sums the U.S. is spending or borrowing to protect individuals, workers, hospitals and health care workers, businesses and governments are staggering. While few argue that something drastic had to happen, some Republicans, including Scott, are now sounding the alarm on skyrocketing debt.

In an op-ed for Fox Business, the first-term Republican pointed out that the U.S. government was already running one trillion-dollar deficit even during what Trump and the GOP have touted as the greatest economy ever.

Rick Scott is concerned about skyrocketing debt.

In Washington, fiscal conservatism goes out the window during a crisis. As we work to solve the coronavirus crisis, make no mistake Congress has significantly exacerbated and sped up our looming fiscal crisis, he wrote. Even during the economic boom we were experiencing, our federal government was set to spend approximately $4.6 trillion while collecting only $3.6 trillion in taxes and fees.

Now, with the downturn in the economy and the new stimulus bill, the federal government this year will spend more than $7 trillion and collect much less than anticipated.

Scott remains on message against bailing out states hard hit by the virus, especially those with budget deficits and lingering debt before the COVID-19 outbreak. This week he joined a virtual town hall organized by the conservative group Americans for Prosperity.

Theres no free money here, he told those online. Im very concerned about where were heading, and about the size of the Federal Reserve balance sheet. Scott continued. Weve got to figure this stuff out.

His takeaway message to those states was live within your means. Do as we did in Florida.

Invasive species

Whether on land or water, Invasive species continue to threaten ecosystems around the state. An area of particular concern is in the Everglades, where invasive plants, animals, or reptiles can hamper restoration efforts.

A prime example is the Burmese Python, which is swallowing up countless animals in the area. Sens. Rubio and Scott have introduced legislation to authorize local authorities to take necessary action to remove the ecosystem disrupters.

The Suppressing Looming Invasive Threats Harming Everglades Restoration (SLITHER) Act authorizes and directs the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force to develop technologies and approaches to identify, target, and eliminate invasive animal and plant species that threaten Everglades restoration.

Invasive species such as the Burmese Python are causing trouble in the Everglades. Photo courtesy National Park Service.

The SLITHER Act will allow the federal, state, tribal, and local partners on the Task Force to collaborate and innovate in new ways, as we identify and eliminate invasive species that threaten the effective restoration of South Floridas ecosystem, Rubio said in a joint news release. This will not only promote ecological health, but it will also make it easier to measure the progress of state and federal investment in Everglades restoration.

The Senators are describing the bill as a positive step forward in combating harmful invasive species that pose risks to the ecological communities, native species, and habitats within the South Florida ecosystem, which can make it challenging to measure progress in Everglades restoration.

Weve successfully fought to fund projects that preserve and protect our Everglades, including repairs to the Herbert Hoover Dike and the EAA Reservoir, but this incredible progress is threatened by invasive species, Scott said. Im proud to join Sen. Rubio in introducing this legislation to combat this threat to our environment, and protect Floridas natural resources for future generations.

Chinas Trojan horse?

Relations between China and the United States have always been an interesting dynamic, but they have taken a turn for the worse during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many believe the worlds most populous country has ulterior motives for many things they do, sell, or even donate.

Among the skeptics is Rep. Gaetz, who, in a letter to U.S. Attorney General, William Barr, urges the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to stop the use of Chinese-made drones by state and local governments. He went further, telling Fox News Tucker Carlson that they may be giving hostile forces important law enforcement information.

Matt Gaetz warns that Chinese drones could be Trojan horses. Image via AP.

China is massively expanding a Trojan horse spying operation in our country, and your local police department may be unknowingly helping them, Gaetz said.

He continued by stating that the United States Army and the Department of Interior have banned their use of Da Jiang Innovations (DJI) drones and cited vulnerability and potential value for other countries. The drones are sold to American agencies at cut-rate prices or even donated.

A 2017 report from a Los Angeles U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office revealed DJI was targeting law enforcement and critical infrastructure companies to collect and exploit data. It also suggested that it could be forwarding that data to the Chinese Communist Party.

Despite being banned by the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act, drones from DJI have gone to 43 law enforcement agencies in 22 states to help ensure social distancing guidelines are being followed. DJI, however, has pushed back on claims that its drones are used to spy on Americans and said that users could prevent their devices from transmitting data.

The information thats being collected makes our nation more vulnerable, the Fort Walton Beach Republican said. And I believe the attorney general, under the existing authorities he has, under these cybersecurity laws, should immediately ground the entire fleet of DJI drones used by U.S. law enforcement.

We should not be spied on by our own government and giving the information then to a foreign government thats hostile.

Relief grants

While Americans from all walks of life have many challenges getting through the COVID-19 crisis, those in public housing face other hurdles. Among those are paying everyday bills even if the lockdowns have not taken away many of their jobs.

Democratic Rep. Al Lawson of Tallahassee was able to provide good news to many of his constituents living in public housing when he announced almost $2.3 million was on the way through two grants created by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

Rep. Al Lawson has good news for constituents in public housing.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will be sending $1,821,514 to the Jacksonville Housing Authority and $453,355 to the Tallahassee Housing Authority. The grants include funds for medical travel and child care.

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit Floridians hard, and this crucial funding will help our most vulnerable citizens during this difficult time, Lawson said in a statement. Many public housing residents are among our most essential workers whose jobs place them on the front lines in hospitals, grocery stores, security guards and other areas. It is critical that we provide them with support and stability during this public health crisis.

Within the $2.2 trillion appropriated by Congress through the CARES Act, HUD received $685 million in relief funds.

Lawsons office noted the funds would also allow public housing systems to prevent, prepare and respond to potential COVID-19 issues in public housing, including resident support services, management and operations, including staff, routine and preventive maintenance, safety and security; transportation and other costs.

Health centers

As the country starts to see the opening of individual businesses in an attempt to return to normal, many are still concerned due to the virus communicable nature. This is especially true for the poor and uninsured should they need critical health care.

Seeking to help the medical facilities that primarily assist these people, Rep. Gus Bilirakis and New Hampshire Democratic Rep. Annie Kuster led a bipartisan letter to House and Senate leadership urging them to make the long-term authorization and infrastructure funding for community health centers (CHCs) a priority in any subsequent COVID-19 response legislation.

Gus Bilirakis and New Hampshire Democratic Rep. Annie Kuster are calling for more funding for community health centers.

The pandemic has had a dramatic economic impact on our health centers, many of which have been forced to implement safeguarding measures to ensure the financial stability of their organization for the long term, they wrote.

This includes some having made difficult personnel decisions, including a temporary reduction in staffing during this global health crisis. Given the health centers vital role in protecting vulnerable populations, both in rural and urban areas, more needs to be done to ensure their long-term financial viability..

While the recent CARES Act extended funding for CHCs, these facilities operate on thin financial margins already stretched because of the coronavirus efforts. The letter also notes the critical role of CHCs in protecting vulnerable populations and calls on leadership to consider legislation that would reauthorize CHCs for five years.

It is also critical that future legislation takes into account the urgent infrastructure needs of CHCs, the letter continues. We have been encouraged by the House adoption of $10 billion in program and capital improvement funds for CHCs as part of H.R. 3, the Elijah Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act.

Now more than ever, infrastructure funding is essential to both support ongoing projects to address unmet primary care needs that have been suspended due to COVID-19, as well as support the implementation of various new infrastructure needs to provide ongoing and necessary care during the pandemic.

Included among the letters 43 co-signers were Democratic Reps. Kathy Castor, Darren Soto and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Noob progressives

Having regained the majority in the House and seeking to gain the majority in the Senate, a group is trying to develop a new generation of progressives to serve as a foundation for years to come. With the help of Florida Democrats Soto, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell and Frederica Wilson, Next Steps Florida seeks to aid trainers charged with nurturing future leaders.

NSF will offer a Volunteer Academy, an Operative Academy, an African Diaspora Campaign School and a Hispanic Campaign School. Organizers hope the effort is similar to GOP steps taken in the 90s as a new generation of leaders, described then as a farm team or bench, matured and has helped lead to Republican dominance throughout the state for more than 20 years.

Next Steps Florida is looking for the next crop of progressive leaders.

At this time in American history, its imperative that we have leaders in place who reflect their communities, who embody progressive values and are committed to social and economic justice as the cornerstones of equitable and transformative legislation, NSF Co-Founder and Executive Director Millie Raphael said.

In addition to the three members of Congress, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary and presidential candidate Julian Casto will lend his expertise.

Florida must lead Americas transformation, and empowering Floridas citizens is our mission. That is why we have dedicated our time and resources to ensuring this vision for our future, Raphael added.

Stimulus versus lawsuits

With the House assembling a new coronavirus aid package, the politics have already begun. While Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her members are putting together a bill that would obviously contain Democratic priorities, Republicans in the House and Senate are following the lead of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who is calling for an assessment of funds already appropriated, which he described as pushing the pause button.

McConnell repeated his insistence on lawsuit liability for governments, doctors and hospitals, private businesses and others susceptible to lawsuits from workers or customers infected after the economy begins to reopen. The latter is clearly not a priority of Democrats.

No. I dont see the House its not even under discussion among the House Democrats, Rep. Kathy Castor said in a radio interview. We had a conference call (earlier this week), a long conference call that reviewed some of the options and needs for our local communities, and that was not even a topic of discussion.

If and when the liability is worked out, there seems to be a growing consensus that at least one additional stimulus payment to individuals and families is necessary. There is less agreement on helping state and local governments.

We didnt invest nearly $3 trillion into workers, businesses & hospitals so municipal services that protect & run our communities can go belly up, Democratic Rep. Wasserman Schultz of Weston said on social media. State & local governments need help. This Republican Admin, GOP Congress must stop blocking local relief.

While there is no bill to block as of yet, the Senate is likely to get something to consider shortly. If it does not contain lawsuit protection, blocking will be a term used frequently by both sides.

Bringing manufacturing home

As the COVID-19 crisis deepened and China became a central focus, calls increased to end dependency on an adversary for everyday items, but especially ingredients for potentially lifesaving drugs. Bills seeking to change the way the U.S. does business were previously filed, but Rep. Vern Buchanan is proposing a significant change.

This week, he introduced the Securing Americas Medicine Cabinet Act, which would create a federal office for stockpiling adequate supplies of critical medicines and encourage a major increase in American production. Buchanan claims 80% of the raw ingredients used to manufacture many medications and antibiotics are produced overseas, primarily in China.

As we confront the coronavirus, it has become clear how dangerously reliant we are on China and the global supply chain for pharmaceutical products, the Longboat Key Republican said in a news release. We must act swiftly to ensure that America is never again forced to rely on other countries for critical drug components and lifesaving drugs.

Buchanan added that Chinese pharmaceutical companies supply between 80 and 90% of U.S. antibiotics, 70% of acetaminophen, and about 40% of heparin (blood clot medication).

Every day, we are learning more about Chinas malicious intentions, from lying about the origins of the coronavirus to threatening to cut off drug supplies to American citizens during a pandemic, Buchanan said. Its clear we must take immediate steps to make our country more independent when it comes to producing lifesaving medicines.

Accelerating restoration

As Floridas Senators are taking action to remove obstacles affecting Everglades restoration (see invasive species above), some South Florida lawmakers are focusing on specific projects that make up the more significant effort. Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings of Delray Beach, joined by Wasserman Schultz and Hialeah Republican Mario Diaz-Balart, wrote to the bipartisan leadership of the House committee and subcommittee with oversight of restoration efforts.

Specifically, they are asking for projects authorized as far back as two decades be considered as ongoing activities. Taking such a step, they said, would speed up restoration efforts and eliminate the need for a separate congressional authorization for each project

Additionally, this would eliminate the need for conditionally approved projects from competing with other (Army Corps of Engineers) projects for funding and congressional authorization, they wrote. In the case of South Florida, each project authorized as part of the CERP provides greater ecosystem and water supply benefits, undoubtedly ensuring South Floridas economic and ecosystem health.

Authorization for Everglades restoration and multiple projects came through the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2000, signed by President Bill Clinton on December 11, 2000. The House is working on WRDA 2020, into which Hastings, Diaz-Balart and Wasserman Schultz seek to insert language.

Deutch backs whistleblower

After spending the summer flushing out the claims of an individual claiming Trump acted improperly toward Ukraine, a whistleblower from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is set to testify that he is the victim of retaliation.

Dr. Rick Bright, the former director of Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, alleges he was reassigned to a lesser role because he resisted political pressure to allow widespread use of hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug touted by the President. Bright is tentatively scheduled to testify next week before a House subcommittee overseeing health commerce.

Could quantum machine learning hold the key to treating COVID-19? – Tech Wire Asia

Scientific researchers are hard at work around the planet, feverishly crunching data using the worlds most powerful supercomputers in the hopes of a speedier breakthrough in finding a vaccine for the novel coronavirus.

Researchers at Penn State University think that they have hit upon a solution that could greatly accelerate the process of discovering a COVID-19 treatment, employing an innovative hybrid branch of research known as quantum machine learning.

When it comes to a computer science-driven approach to identifying a cure, most methodologies harness machine learning to screen different compounds one at a time to see if they might bond with the virus main protease, or protein.

This process is arduous and time-consuming, despite the fact that the most powerful computers were actually condensing years (maybe decades) of drug testing into less than two years time. Discovering any new drug that can cure a disease is like finding a needle in a haystack, said lead researcher Swaroop Ghosh, the Joseph R. and Janice M. Monkowski Career Development Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering at Penn State.

It is also incredibly expensive. Ghosh says the current pipeline for discovering new drugs can take between five and ten years from the concept stage to being released to the market, and could cost billions in the process.

High-performance computing such as supercomputers and artificial intelligence (AI) canhelp accelerate this process by screeningbillions of chemical compounds quicklyto findrelevant drugcandidates, he elaborated.

This approach works when enough chemical compounds are available in the pipeline, but unfortunately this is not true for COVID-19. This project will explorequantum machine learning to unlock new capabilities in drug discovery by generating complex compounds quickly.

Quantum machine learning is an emerging field that combines elements of machine learning with quantum physics. Ghosh and his doctoral students had in the past developed a toolset for solving a specific set of problems known as combinatorial optimization problems, using quantum computing.

Drug discovery computation aligns with combinatorial optimization problems, allowing the researchers to tap the same toolset in the hopes of speeding up the process of discovering a cure, in a more cost-effective fashion.

Soumik Roy | 18 March, 2019

Artificial intelligence for drug discovery is a very new area, Ghosh said. The biggest challenge is finding an unknown solution to the problem by using technologies that are still evolving that is, quantum computing and quantum machine learning. We are excited about the prospects of quantum computing in addressing a current critical issue and contributing our bit in resolving this grave challenge.

Joe's interest in tech began when, as a child, he first saw footage of the Apollo space missions. He still holds out hope to either see the first man on the moon, or Jetsons-style flying cars in his lifetime.

The Psychological Toll of Working on the Front Lines: Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s coronavirus podcast for May 6 – jacksonprogress-argus

§ May 7th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on The Psychological Toll of Working on the Front Lines: Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s coronavirus podcast for May 6 – jacksonprogress-argus

Health care workers on the front lines are risking not only their lives, but also their mental and emotional well-being. CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta speaks with Dr. Steven McDonald, an emergency room doctor at New York-Presbyterian Allen Hospital, about the psychological toll of his everyday reality.

You can listen on your favorite podcast app or read the transcript below.

Jake Tapper, CNN Anchor, "The Lead" and "State of the Union": Doctors and nurses risking their lives to save you and me and patients.

Dr. Ken Duckworth, chief medical officer, National Alliance of Mental Illness: I do worry about our first responders and health care workers, in terms of the trauma they are exposed to.

Ana Cabrera, CNN Anchor: Even physicians are victims of this unprecedented public emergency.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Since the beginning of this pandemic, health care workers have been dealing with this virus head-on, putting their own physical health at risk.

According to a CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] report released in April, more than 9,0000 health care workers have been infected with the coronavirus. ... And because of the limited data we have, that number is likely higher.

But we shouldn't forget the other risks our health care workers are facing. I'm talking about the emotional and psychological ones.

[Pots and pans banging, people cheering for health care workers]

Gupta: Every night in cities around the world, we celebrate our health care workers. But the thing is, even before this pandemic, their jobs were demanding.

They're in high-stress life-and-death situations with long hours.

So in this episode, I want to talk about the pandemic's psychological cost to the people on the front lines -- and what's being done to help them.

I'm Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent. And this is "Coronavirus: Fact vs. Fiction."

Dr. Philip Breen: She was a doctor. Every bit of the word that a doctor should be. She put her life on the line to take care of other people.

Last week, Dr. Breen, a New York City emergency room doctor, died by suicide.

She had actually contracted Covid-19 herself. After recovering she went back to work.

Breen: She was like the fireman who runs into the burning building to save another life and doesn't regard anything about herself.

Gupta: There is so much about this virus that is new and unfamiliar, making everyday life more challenging.

I've heard that from my colleagues.

Every day they wonder: Are they safe? And if their families and loved ones are safe as well.

I recently spoke with Dr. Steven McDonald. He's an ER doctor at the same hospital as Dr. Breen.

He's been on the front line for weeks, taking care of patient after patient ... after patient. New York has been the US' pandemic epicenter, with more than 321,000 people infected and 25,000 deaths.

I asked Dr. McDonald about how he's coping with his everyday reality as well as the loss of a colleague, and how he's taking care of his own mental health.

Gupta: So how is life, Dr. McDonald?

Dr. Steven McDonald: First of all, things are changing day-to-day. I think life a month ago looked very different than only two weeks ago than it does today. Thankfully, emergency department volumes are significantly down.

But also, as you can imagine, the tenor of my department is depressed. We just lost one of our faculty members, one of our physicians. And so there's definitely a pall that's been cast over my department -- in addition to this pandemic.

Gupta: I'm so sorry to hear that. I don't think people always recognize both the physical and psychological toll on frontline workers like yourself. At what point for you did it become something that was personally frightening?

McDonald: As we were approaching the peak, I would walk into the emergency room and it was in a state of chaos. And it was overwhelming to an extent that I had never really seen before. It felt -- I keep describing it as though a caged animal had been kind of let loose, and no one could see it or get it back into the cage.

Gupta: Wow. You know, I've been -- I finished med school in 1993, so I've been doing this for a long time. And typically, you know, the family is there. There's an additional line of support.

But what you're describing is people who are coming in, almost always by themselves because families can't come in. And now they find themselves in a position where they may suddenly die. It's tough. I don't mean to paint it so stark, but it sounds like that is the reality, at least in some of these situations.

Let me ask: How worried were you about contracting the virus yourself?

McDonald: If I'm being honest, you know, early on, I think this was probably mid-March when this was first starting. I had a moment at home by myself, borne out of complete irrationality, where I suddenly was convinced that I was going to die of this. I can't explain to you where that came from. I think it was just maybe having read a couple too many of these cases and having talked to a couple of colleagues who had pronounced young people dead of this.

And I just suddenly was gripped by that conviction. And it was frightening. It was really frightening, just to feel like there's nothing that I can do in this. I have truly no agency over my death in some regard. There's no amount of PPE that will protect me from this. And I know that to be irrational. I know that to not be true, but I was so gripped by it in one moment.

Gupta: I agree with you, and I think that's a really interesting way to put it. You know, we do all the right things, but there are things in life, especially with a microscopic virus that's inexplicable. So you're really putting yourself at risk.

Gupta: Did you ever think about sitting it out? Saying, you know what? It's not worth it.

McDonald: You know, I did have a moment where -- I think it was a Sunday night and I had my first shift in a couple of weeks on the Monday. And I was, to be totally honest with you, I was a wreck. I was a wreck. I was calling family and friends. And I was really upset.

And I was thinking about the number of people who I was going to have to pronounce dead or have to have end-of-life conversations with. And I found it so overwhelming in the abstract on that Sunday night.

I thankfully have a great support network, a great therapist -- and spoke with her a bit and was able to sort of pull myself together and work and be a physician the next day. But that was a difficult 24 hours.

Gupta: You know, Steven, it's always struck me that even within the medical community, there is still a stigma about seeking therapy, seeking mental health support. Yet it's so important, maybe never more important, than it is right now.

Do you sense that stigma? I mean, has it manifested at all in your life?

McDonald: I mean, you know, absolutely. I would say physicians don't talk about mental health issues. I don't know if any job is really that open about this, but I think medicine in general breeds a culture of silence about this.

Gupta: And you do hear about physicians who die by suicide. Compared to the general community, it's typically higher across the board.

There was a lot of news about Dr. Breen lately. And I know you knew her somewhat. When you heard this, were you surprised?

McDonald: Absolutely. I was completely floored. She always -- again, I only knew her in a professional capacity, but she struck me as someone who was so self-possessed and so capable, really tough as nails and able to deal with any situation head-on.

And, you know, I esteem all of my colleagues as being that tough.

Gupta: Has there been anything good that's come out of this for you?

McDonald: So I think there has been incredible camaraderie among physicians. At the peak of this, we had orthopedists and urologists coming down and managing critically ill patients and doing blood draws and doing things that are way below their level of training just to help out, and to see colleagues who were so willing to be part of this effort was really inspiring.

You know, secondly, and I think this remains to be borne out, but one hope that I have: This virus, I think is sort of peeling back the onion skin and showing us at the core of American society, things that really need attention on a federal and legislative level.

So, the inequalities that this is exposing, the problems in the health care system that this is exposing.

And I hope that these are conversations that are started and carry weight and are not forgotten after we beat this thing.

Gupta: Camaraderie as well, you're absolutely right about -- I've seen that in our own hospital. Although it does make me think of this joke that you probably heard: the definition of a double-blind study?

Gupta: Two orthopedic surgeons trying to read an EKG.

McDonald: Hahahaha. I love that. I will not be telling that to my orthopedic colleagues, but I love that.

Gupta: I want to ask you about, you know, if there's been a best moment and a worst moment.

McDonald: Yes. Worst moment for me was. ... It was during the peak, and I was coming into a shift. I received sign-out on probably 40 patients who were all critically ill.

And so I was in this awful situation where I was pulled into one room to be with a critical patient who was dying. And then the nurse comes and gets me and says, you also have a critical patient who's dying in this other room.

And so I run through to this other room, and this woman is near death. Her heart has nearly stopped. Her oxygen levels are falling. She's already on a ventilator. She was in her late 80s.

And the team is, the team of residents is looking to me, to ask: What are we going to do when this woman's heart stops, as it appears it's going to in the next 10 seconds, 15 seconds? And this woman had no established advanced directives. And we had made multiple attempts to get in touch with family and were unable to.

And, you know, all the data shows that someone of this age who's already on a ventilator, this person is not going to live no matter what interventions you make. And so, talking to you now, it seems very obvious to not attempt to prolong life. But in that moment, it was very hard for me to make that decision. It was -- there was no clarity about it.

And so, I declined to perform CPR. But then I felt terribly about that in the moment. That was really the lowest moment I've had during this, where I just felt like I ended someone's life without any data.

I guess, in terms of bright spots of this -- so you're familiar, I'm sure, with the 7 o'clock clap for providers and essential workers. And so, after Lorna Breen's passing, I was working that next day. And we did at 7 o'clock go out to the front of the emergency department.

All the doctors who were able and the nurses and everyone, and we just had a hell of a clap for those whom we've lost. And it doesn't in any way redeem what's happened. But it was a really nice moment of camaraderie and to celebrate the accomplishments of those whom we've lost, including Dr. Breen.

Gupta: Wow. Well, I mean, going back to the worst moment for a second, for what it's worth, Steven, that was a tough decision. I'm sorry that obviously left such a mark on you. But from what you described, you know, it was the correct decision.

Gupta: Do you worry that you're suffering from post-traumatic stress?

McDonald: It's hard to say. I mean, I think like post-traumatic stress disorder, when you're in the thick of it, you don't think about it. And it's only once things calm down that you begin to have things like flashbacks or intrusive thoughts.

So far, I've been very fortunate in that I have not had those symptoms, but I can't tell you with any certainty that I won't in the future. And so that is a perpetual source of anxiety and concern.

Gupta: Well, I mean, I will clap harder and cheer even louder after hearing your story about how that made you feel. I mean, it's the least I think that people can do and people really owe you a debt of gratitude. So, thank you very much.

There'll be books written about the sort of work that you've done. I know you're in the midst of it right now, so it's hard to sense that, but thank you.

McDonald: Thank you. Thank you so much.

Gupta: Like Dr. McDonald said, doctors are facing so many challenges right now. There are these long, demanding shifts, the risk of exposure to the virus and the number of patients that are dying, which is unlike anything we have ever dealt with before.

Dr. John Krystal, Yale University professor of psychiatry and neuroscience and Yale-New Haven Hospital chief of psychiatry: You know you think of the first wave of illness being the wave of patients coming in and presenting with illness. But for these health care workers, the stresses are somewhat cumulative.

And so you can think of a second wave of stress coming through for the Covid health care workers.

Gupta: That was Dr. John Krystal. He heads the psychiatry department at both Yale University and Yale-New Haven Hospital. He's been tasked with leading a group that identifies health care providers who are struggling and provides them with support.

Krystal: One kind of support that we have is giving people a place they can drop into any day they want, every day, five days a week. We have what we call stress and resilience town halls. They're open to everybody in the community: staff, trainees, doctors.

The idea was they should connect to deal with the isolation that they're often feeling. They should unload, you know, they should just share what it is that they're going through and then to learn a few skills. And so we teach people relaxation skills, and we teach people sleep hygiene. And so far, I think in our community, over 1,400 people have made use of them.

Gupta: Dr. Krystal and his team also established a buddy system -- pairing health care workers with their peers. And then they dispatched volunteers to provide psychological support to anyone who wants it, over the phone.

But both Dr. Krystal and Dr. McDonald bring up a more deeply rooted issue about the culture of medicine.

Krystal: You know, some of the challenges are that some of the characteristics that we have historically admired most about physicians: They're willing to sacrifice themselves for others, their reluctance to complain about things.

All of those are admirable, wonderful traits, but somehow, we haven't always inculcated in the values of our medical system that self-care is as much a duty and a responsibility as caring for the patient.

And my hope is that this is an opportunity to have broader discussion about that. And to make it OK for more doctors who need help to seek help.

Gupta: This pandemic has really tried and tested the best of us.

But I am thankful that mental health services are available for our doctors and medical workers who need it the most.

A fund was recently set up in honor of Dr. Breen -- it's called the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes' Fund, and it's there to provide mental health services to medical workers.

It's my sincere hope that the support that's been marshaled to help health care workers in this pandemic will last beyond this moment -- that they'll become a fixture in the way we think about care.

We'll be back tomorrow. Thanks for listening.

Growing back the lymph system – University of Georgia

§ May 7th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Growing back the lymph system – University of Georgia

The study, published in a Nature journal, provides hope for cancer-related lymphedema

A team including University of Georgia researchers has for the first time documented the regrowth of surgically removed pathways in the lymphatic system, a network of vessels designed to pump away inflammatory fluids and defend the body against infection.

Published in Nature Biomedical Engineering, the findings lay the foundation for a new class of treatment options for lymph-related disorders, such as chronic wound complications, and could even help prevent the spread of cancer.

Lymphatic dysfunction is connected to a variety of diseases, including both cardiovascular disease and cancer. For example, breast cancer cells break away from the primary tumor and travel through the lymphatic system. If left alone, they can spread throughout the body. Lymphatic vesselswhich operate in similar ways to the cardiovascular systemare sometimes traumatized by cancer treatment or the removal of lymph nodes, which can lead to lymphedema, or the chronic swelling of a leg or arm.

Right now, we dont have a way to rebuild or reconstruct the lymphatic system. We hardly even understand how it works, said Dr. John Peroni, a professor and large-animal surgeon in UGAs College of Veterinary Medicine. This study was one of the first in fundamentally addressing a basic scientific question that has been left unanswered: If lymphatics are injured, can they remodel or heal?

Working with a sheep model, collaborators from Georgia Tech and the Regenerative Bioscience Center at UGAs College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, removed one of two lymphatic vessels that run parallel to each other in the leg. These are as crucial to lymph flow as the heart is to blood flow, according to the researchers. Under these conditions, they were able to show the beginning of a lymphatic pump cycle and the start of the remodeling and repair stages.

As a result of the remodeling, the team concluded that molecular changes in lymphatic muscle cells enhanced oxidative stress, which typically occurs when the immune system is creating inflammation to fight off bacteria. After a period of six weeks, the team discovered that the remaining lymphatic vessel was working twice as hard to compensate for the oxidative stress.

One would expect that when you remove the main lymph vessel, in the part thats lower than the obstruction, it would swell. To our surprise, it only did so minimally, Peroni said. It turns out theres a considerable amount of collateral lymphatic circulation that we were not expecting. At a microscopic level, theres enough mechanisms by which the body can still recirculate and drain fluids out of the leg, even though the main highway is removed.

The findings follow the same researchers previous work which showed similar results in using the rodent tail, one of the oldest and most widely utilized model systems for lymphatic research.

Perhaps the most important single feature of using a larger model like sheep, versus the historical benchmark of a rodents tail, is the gravitational benefits, Peroni said. Gravity makes it harder for lymph to be transported from the legs and the lower half of the body, and sheep provide a better gravitational model compared to the consistently flat position of a rodents tail. Its almost identical to wound-healing issues in humans.

Peroni worked closely with Brandon Dixon, lead author and associate professor of mechanical and biomedical engineering at Georgia Tech, who heads the Laboratory of Lymphatic Biology and Bioengineering.

What distinguishes this study from others is that it focused on remodeling of the vessel that was not initially damaged during surgery, as it attempts to compensate for the segment that was removed, said Dixon. This is important for understanding secondary lymphedema in breast cancer survivors, since most onset of lymphedema occurs many months after breast cancer surgery, and the remaining intact lymphatic vasculature can no longer keep up with the demands placed on it.

These findings are pre-clinical and further studies are required to confirm testing in humans, but they provide scientific evidence for lymphatic remodeling that up until now has been scarce.

Were excited because there is now an animal model that we can use to put the vessel under this state of prolonged stress that wasnt result of the initial injury, but a result of the vessels adaptation to the surgery, said Dixon. Its a good model for what happens to a human.

This study was funded by the Regenerative Engineering and Medicine (REM) seed grant program. The Regenerative Bioscience Center is a unit of the UGA Office of Research, with generous support from the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences and its Department of Animal and Dairy Science.

The Benefits of Tech Even Those That Don’t Cut Costs – The Tech Report

§ May 7th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on The Benefits of Tech Even Those That Don’t Cut Costs – The Tech Report

Technology makes processes easier, faster, safer, and more efficient. Shouldnt it, therefore, also reduce costs?

This isnt always the case. Thats because researching and developing new technology can cost millions of dollars; add to that the cost of materials and production. By the time that technology is launched, billions may have been spent developing it.

New technology has brought immense benefits to the following four industries, but it hasnt necessarily lowered costs for consumers.

Medical technology is so innovative that doctors can now insert tiny robotics into the body to repair internal wounds or remove objects. This is a branch of medicine called nanomedicine. Nanomedicine uses nanosized (even smaller than microsized) carriers to transport drugs to specific cells or tumors in the body. This form of technology opens up a new way to treat cancer, for instance. Rather than subject the entire body to chemotherapy, nanotechnology can deliver chemotherapy drugs directly to the tumor.

These types of treatments, however, dont come cheap. In fact, healthcare costs in the United States continue to rise. In 2018, the U.S spent $3.6 trillion on healthcare, which works out to an average of $11,000 per person. This is projected to increase to $18,000 per person by 2028.

One of the main drivers of escalating healthcare costs is medical technology. According to a report by The Hastings Center, healthcare economists found that 40 percent to 50 percent of annual healthcare cost increases were linked to new medical technologies.

Sustainable energy has a positive impact on the environment. Solar- and wind-powered energy mean less reliance on harmful fossil fuels for energy production. Electric cars eliminate toxic fuel emissions.

But solar panels can be costly to install, and electric cars are often more expensive to buy than traditional cars. Electric vehicles can range in pricing from $31,915 for a Nissan Leaf to $70,875 for the Jaguar I-Pace.

The good news is these products pay for themselves over time with the savings on your electric and gas bills. In addition, buying an electric car or implementing energy-saving technology in your home can make you eligible for a rebate. States like California offer rebates of up to $500 when installing solar products and up to $7,000 when buying an electric vehicle.

Many of the aviation safety systems that are standard on planes today were born from past mistakes. When an airplane crashes, a thorough investigation is conducted. The lessons learned from a catastrophic disaster often lead to improved safety technology.

The aviation industry has made giant strides in technology to make flying safer, lower the cost of fuel, and find ways to reduce airplane emissions. Engineers are looking at ways to manufacture lighter engines and using 3D printing to design and produce lighter aircraft parts. Every part that becomes lighter, even brackets and hinges, helps decrease the planes overall weight and boost fuel efficiency.

In their quest to reduce their carbon footprint, aircraft manufacturers are following the example of the automotive industry and testing electric engines for airplanes. Theyre also testing biofuels, such as sugarcane and cooking oil. According to NASA, a 50/50 blend of jet fuel and biofuel can cut soot emissions by 50 percent. While this is great for the environment, flying a plane with biofuels costs more than traditional jet fuel.

Despite new technology and lower fuel costs, travelers are unlikely to see a drop in the cost of flights. And with the COVID-19 pandemic grounding planes across the globe, many airlines are likely to try to recoup losses by charging higher fares when travel resumes.

Car safety technology, like collision avoidance systems, blind-spot monitoring, automated braking, lane keep assist, and rear-view backup cameras have become standard on most new cars.

Despite the fact that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety agree that safety tech in cars is effective in reducing car crashes, insurance companies havent lowered their rates on cars that feature them. The only car safety technologies that lower insurance rates are electronic stability control and telematics.

If car tech helps prevent accidents, why arent insurance rates lower? Insurance companies cite the following reasons:

Technology improves our lives in many ways, but it doesnt always lower costs. In some cases, it may even increase the cost of goods or services. The tradeoff is in what we gain from new technologies: more efficiency, better safety, time-saving convenience, and less damage to the environment.

§ May 7th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on IIT-M develops oil-based cancer therapy – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Researchers from IIT-Madras have developed a clove oil-based emulsion to treat cancer, claiming that the formulation would have enormous scope in the treatment of undifferentiated cancer and can also overcome anti-microbial resistance. The research papers were published recently in the reputed International Journal of Nanomedicine. The researchers, led by professor R Nagarajan, head, department of chemical engineering in IIT Madras, have developed a nano-scale emulsion of clove bud using the spontaneous self-emulsification technique with potent anti-cancer and anti-bacterial activity. This formulation meets all compliance requirements, they said. According to Nagarajan, while conventional therapies for cancer like radiation, chemotherapy and surgery cause severe damage to normal cells along with other major side-effects, the plant-based essential oils have paved way to devise innovative solutions to these drawbacks of synthe-tic drugs. "The advantages of these emulsions lie in their small droplet size, ease of preparation, optical clarity, good physical stability, improved bio-availability, non-toxicity and non-irritability," said Nagarajan. "This formulation would have an enormous scope in the treatment of metastatic cancer. Moreover, the components involved are cost-effective and demonstrate good efficacy, and the technique employed is simple, which is the utmost need for drug development," he said.

The team of scientists includes M Joyce Nirmala, post doctoral fellow, Vineet Gopakumar, B Tech student, and Latha Durai, Research Scientist-all from IIT-Madras.
