I’m pleased to host this roving blog carnival, and thrilled suitably humbled to be the first 7 time host.
Which is a terrible way to start this, the first Non-Narcissist, Non Personally Aggrandizing MedBlog Grand Rounds, and thanks for putting up with my first theme. 31 submissions from 23 submitters makes this theme viable, and well-attended.
by Movin’Meat. A tale you’ll retell. Recommended by Musings of a Dinosaur.
Most Recommended Post:
The body of work, in order of receipt*:
On call- tips from the trenches by Dr. Grumpy (self descriptive), and Only in the Country: Sunshine by Dr. Sanity (people with decompensated psych problems are usually interesting), both recommended by Melissa.
Boyfriend Doesn’t Have Ebola. Probably. *UPDATED* from Hyperbole and a Half. The title has nothing to do with the subject: the funniest, most accurate facial pain scale chart, ever. Recommended by How to Cope with Pain.
Story-telling in the Age of Corporate Medicine (or more on being called an AIDS denier) by Mad in America is his reply to reviews of his book, which is done well. Recommended by Behaviorism and Mental Health.
This is what you don’t want to think to yourself upon entering a room: by Head Nurse about the thought and action process (just go read it). Editorial: awesome and prolific nurse blogger, who you should add to your daily reads. Recommended by Geena of CodeBlog.
The Estrogen Dilemma – Hope, Hype or Just One Woman’s Story? from TBTAM, Life, Death and Everything In Between by A Day in the Life of an Ambulance Driver, Numbers by Dr. Wes (who knew a Navy man could rhyme polite words?) and choice by OncRn were all sumbitted by #1 Dinosaur, who also happens to have a book!
EHR Certification – A Delicate Balance by On Healthcare Technology shows acronyms aren’t just for medicine, HIT has plenty (and on a serious not argues whether we should be trying to certify EHR’s). Recommended by Occam Practice Management.
Last but certainly not least, Paucis Verbis Card: Vasopressors and Inotropes for Shock in Academic Life in Emergency Medicine is a very nice pocket reference card for the pressors. Nice! It was recommended by Blogborygmi‘s Nick Genes.
(*=except for these) And then, the Old Fashioned submissions:
Do Antidepressants Really Work? from A Better View, and Is That A T. rex Up Your Nose? New Species of Nose-dwelling Leech Discovered From Living the Scientific Life were auto-submitted.
Would you please include a request for submissions to the May 13 Change of Shift rounds at the end of your Grand Rounds post?
Details for the theme are at my site (http://themusern.com/), but the reason I’m asking for your mention is that it would be extra special to include and refer blogs/ posts from the doc group on the topic of “The Greatest Nurse I’ve Ever Known….” in honor of National Nurse’s Week.
Submissions no later than 5 pm your time, May 12.
All Hail Nick Genes, the creator of MedBlog Grand Rounds! (I know, but it’s a requirement now).
The next installment is at The Examining Room of Doctor Charles.
Thanks to all for participating!
