Episode 15 – Hematology Rapid Fire!


Welcome back Rounds Table Listeners!

Just before COVID was starting to take off we had recorded a non-COVID episode on four hematology papers, but we never got around to releasing the episode. Well, better late than never…Four rapid fire papers on hematology topics that have nothing to do with COVID-19!

  1. Is an incidental lymphopenia associated with increased mortality? (00:00 – 07:40) https://www.cmaj.ca/content/192/2/E25.short
  2. Does tranexamic acid increase risk of thrombosis? (07:41 – 12:45) https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31100632/
  3. Outcomes associated with antiplatelet therapy after spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage: (12:46 – 18:63) https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/10.1161/STROKEAHA.119.025972 
  4. Iron deficiency in pregnancy, and the IRON MOM study: (18:14 – 26:37) https://journals.plos.org/plosmedicine/article?id=10.1371/journal.pmed.1002867

And for the Good Stuff:

  1. Powerful article from 2003 written by a Toronto physician, Dr. Mark Cheung, who details his personal experience as a health care provider, and then patient after he acquired SARS. It’s a beautiful read: https://www.cmaj.ca/content/169/12/1284 
  2. Learning about R, with the help of Teacup Giraffes https://tinystats.github.io/teacups-giraffes-and-statistics/01_introToR
