Honey, sweetie pie, babe … all the sorts of slushy nominative phrases that get thrown into the droning movies and teen-focussed telly programmes we probably love to watch. But honey, the bear-beloved treat, could that help with hay fever? An intrepid evidence-based gang tried to answer the question for you (https://adc.bmj.com/content/109/1/71.1)
And we also chat in this podcast about the problems of cheap boots and damp toes (indirectly). (https://adc.bmj.com/content/109/1/71.2)
 
We would love for you to be involved in Archi (https://adc.bmj.com/pages/authors/#archimedes) - just ask the questions that your patients are offering you - and tell us how you’re finding the podcast offerings.

When treating children with cancer and febrile neutropenia, you may ask yourself, "Are urinary cultures a waste of time?"
Prof. Bob Phillips (1) of the ADC Archimedes podcast joins ADC Spotlight host Dr. Rachel Agbeko to reflect on this question, basing their discussion on the paper, "Role of urine culture in paediatric patients with cancer with fever and neutropenia: a prospective observational study". They consider the strength of evidence for urine culture testing in such cases, and whether there is an opportunity to reduce the burden on young cancer patients and their families.

Really difficult stuff

Friday Dec 29, 2023

Friday Dec 29, 2023

Proving something is safe, or that bad things don’t happen, is always hard. Really hard. And when people turn to the published literature to investigate adverse effects you have to send them much praise - like the team have done in this month's Archimedes when looking at if baclofen causes seizures (https://adc.bmj.com/content/108/12/1028.1).
The other thing we often struggle with is how much we can lump stuff together in a systematic review (https://adc.bmj.com/content/108/12/1028.2). So we chat about that. If you’re comparing fruit salad with potato salad, it’s probably fine to have apples and oranges (and banana and kiwi) in the same bowl. If you’re looking to see which apple to bake in a pie, you don’t want your crab apples in with your pippins and Granny Smiths. Baking tips can be found in this podcast too, it transpires.

The world advanced through the Next Great Thing. Like the C5 electric scooter, Hindenberg air ship and velocipedes. It’s always easy to see the next great thing being ignored when you look backwards in time - but what about looking forwards? Is video-assisted thoracoscopic draining of complicated infected pleural fluid really any better than a tiny plastic pipe and squirting in some fibrin muncher? (https://adc.bmj.com/content/108/11/940.1)
We chat about that, and your commoner medical devices (https://adc.bmj.com/content/108/11/940.2) on this month’s podcast.
