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.
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.

It’s obvious!

In this month's Archimedes section of ADC: there are a lot of things in life that are obvious like crash barriers making roads safer, giving iprotropium for wheezy bronchiolitis or using C-reactive protein to differentiate bacterial and viral infections… oh wait … well … one out of three …
This podcast is all about how you sometimes need to state the obvious (https://adc.bmj.com/content/108/10/862.2) and sometimes you need to question it (https://adc.bmj.com/content/108/10/862.1). Have a listen and consider what you’d do.
We would love for you to be involved in Archimedes (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.

Balance in (almost) everything

Back to the cut and thrust of clinical neonatology for the September 2023 Archimedes, where we visit the challenge of sugar-free babies again. How do you move forward with uncertainty about the adverse effects of medicines but significant problems with the adverse effects of disease processes? [doi 10.1136/archdischild-2023-325726]
 
We also flicker our minds back to the Olden Days, when analysers were simpler and viral PCRs were Special And Rare. And where Jones criteria were more in evidence than circulating IL23 levels. We ask - how does time change things? [doi 10.1136/archdischild-2023-326113]
 
We would love for you to be involved in Archi [adc.bmj.com/pages/authors/#archimedes] - just ask the questions that your patients are offering you - and tell us how you’re fidning the podcast offerings.
