December 6, 2009

The Respiratory Unit is as busy as ever, particularly in this cold snap.  So plenty of learning opportunities for you all.

Ward 3 – Dr Smith is on the ward, with few junior doctors, so any help you can provide on the ward will be rewarded with quality teaching, I’m sure.  The juniors will hug you for any help you can give them!

Learning Opprtunities

October 26, 2009

Hello Phase 2 and 3.  I’ve just done the most interesting clinic:

2 cases of bronchiectasis

1 case of sarcoid

A pectus excavatum

An extrinsic allergic allveolitis to cat urine

A woman with liver capsular pain

A woman with a lung abscess

So a mixed bag, but all of it interesting.  And no students sitting in!!!  I have another clinic this afternoon – no students scheduled, 7 patients with a host of interesting pathologies……

See you later….?

Teaching Opportunity….?

October 14, 2009

Hi. It’s 10 o’clock on Wenesday morning, and I’m in the bornch suite in East block, doing a list. There’s no students here, so if you’re interested, pop along. There’s 5 on the list, I’ve done 2, so I should be here until about 11:30, ish, if you want to come along for some on the spur of the moment teaching!

CXR Teaching

October 14, 2009

Morning Chesters.

Thanks to Dr Goudie for finding this little gem!  If you want some teaching on CXRs, you can always come to the next SEXI course (Scheduled for Aberdeen later in November!), but in the mean time, this is a fantastic on-line alternative from the University of Miami.  Some of the bits are a bit USofA, but it’s sound radiology, I feel.

Take a look here for more details.

Presenting a Clinical History

September 26, 2009

I know it’s a bit American, but this provides at least some structure for how to present a case to a proper grown-up doctor.

Chest Sounds, normal and not

September 13, 2009

Steve Kraman, Professor of Pulmonology at the University of Kentucky, has produced a very nice presentation demonstrating lung sounds as heard through an electronic stethoscope.  He’s made it available through creative commons, and it’s available to download here.
