Good morning, and welcome to The Week in PAAD.
First and foremost, SHOUT-OUTS to PAAD’s newest Founding Member Subscribers: Lauren Lobaugh, Eric Holley, Micky Sofer, Maurine Heard, Tom Majcher, Lenny Naftilin, and Destiny Chau. THANK YOU! Your voluntary contributions to PAAD will be 100% donated to SPA’s Patient Safety, Education and Research Fund (PSERF) that supports junior investigators.
New PAAD additions: I’m a big fan of Politico’s Playbook, a daily email of current political events. Along with Heather Cox Richardson’s Letters from an American, it’s my morning coffee reading. Playbook has created a nice sense of community by including sections at the end of the newsletter with announcements of birthdays, job transitions, and other “mazel tovs”. Starting this Monday I’ll try to do the same with fellow PAADers. If you would like a shout-out, please send them to me at LitmanR@chop.edu and I’ll post them for the group (I already have 5 exciting transitions!).
ICYMI, here are the newsletters from the past week:
Medicolegal Monday March 15, 2021: Read about a tragic case of an easily preventable medication error in the OR.
Tuesday March 16, 2021: Is postoperative acute kidney injury in children a “thing”?
Wednesday March 17, 2021: Are opioids becoming obsolete in pediatric day surgery?
Throwback Thursday March 18, 2021: Distinguished Professor Myron Yaster discusses a classic paper on the origins of the 4-2-1 maintenance fluid formula. Take the IV fluid bag challenge.
