@HIBGIA

By the way, you might be surprised to learn that Type I Diabetes can be caused by a Coxsackie B infection (hypothetically). So there, you have something to avoid like the MRSA bug (something which I'm sure you heard on House MD). And lay off doctors you arrogant nooblet!

Etotheipi, I find this fascinating...any theories as to why or how the maggots can live in formaldehyde? Thanks

2007-11-09T12:58:00.000-06:00

If someone doesn't 'get' the "don't get diabetes" comment, then they should not be reading this blog because they are literal minded dipshits.

Although my comment was basically ironic / sarcastic, you actually CAN, in a sense, GET diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is often directly related to obesity - many people who lose weight, lose the diabetes.

So there.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that you will likely get some combination of Ebola and 'flesh eating' staph if you don't wash your hands and genitals on an hourly basis. I certainly do this, although it has nothing to do with disease avoidance.

"cockroaches are pussies." laughing my freakin a$$ off.

"Don't get diabetes people." can't believe nobody's commented taking offense to that! You and I know what you mean, but non-medical? "Uhoh...I can "get" diabetes? Do I need to wash my hands more, like I do to keep away from the MRSAbug???" and "you arrogant doctor, it's about hormones...you don't "get" diabetes, you just have it or not!!!"

Hey was it really necessary to tell the maggot story...huh was it...I draw the line at maggots. I will run screaming from the room and probably never come back...

nocturnalrn: how do you deal with the "roach in the ear" at 2am? Those are the best!

Oh I can't stand it when patients come in with maggots. I hate bugs any ways, and should know by now to keep my distance, but I can't help but stare...like a car wreck/

2007-11-05T18:47:00.000-06:00

We just had a patient present with an I&D that was completed 3 years ago, with the original bandage still on her wound! We gowned, masked, bootied up, got the vicks vapor rub under our noses, put the winter green oil on tubs of guaze and headed in expecting the worst. Well, we were right about the smell, but once we pulled off the nasty (and stanking) little bandage, and got over the hundreds of little maggots in her wound, what a surprise to see that the wound itself was cleaner than just about any wound Ihave ever seen! Those maggots saved her leg and prolly her life.

"My instinct was to puke, but then I recalled my admiration for these humble creatures."

I would have gone with my instinct. :-)

"Again, I gulped the vomit from the back of my throat; my heart filled with love for these beautiful infant flies."

*sniff* What a sweet, romantic tale about maggots. I can tell you're deeply in love. Hee hee!

2007-11-04T02:23:00.000-06:00

generic maggots are 97% as effective as name brand maggots (according to recently published studies), but if you are stuck on names, go with paris hilton maggots.

Etotheipi: Why don't you and your little poet drop by my place and give me some good input? Professional input on the xanthochromia issue I have posted on my blog, that is. Seriously, I'd like an MD point of view from you or anyone else who cares to comment.

2007-11-03T19:46:00.000-05:00

Maggots are cool! I did wound care in an LTAC where our specialty was maggot debriedment. Toss the little buggers in the wound, cover with guaze and water every 3 hours, and in a few days what was a necrotic wound is now nice and pink!

Didn't realize they lived in formalin though. ick.

Several years ago, the NIH did a similar experiment with Yellow Page attorneys. They put two groups in formalin, and the ones facing the TV with an ambulance driving down the road were somehow able to survive.

Since you complimented my assonance yesterday, I feel I should tell you I like your diction. If you hadn't gone into medicine you could have been quite the cunning linguist.

Etoh, I knew there was a poetic little boy beneath that gruff exterior. This could well be a bedtime story for your children.

2007-11-02T15:13:00.000-05:00

My favorite bug story was cleaning all the maggots from a patient who had stroked out in a field in a rural area and survived for 5 days in the field with no food nor water. He said in his broken sentences that he stroked, fell off his riding lawnmower in the field and spent the first couple of days trying to drag himself back to the house to call 9-11. After the first couple of days, he just lay there waiting. Medics said it looked like he dragged himself 200 yards. Finally his family came to check on him and found him there.

Bugs in general (I'm fairly certain maggots were involved) ate away at his skin alive until large, gaping holes were there that needed to be packed every day. He arrived covered in dirty, grime, and bugs and needed the full body shave, etc in addition to major fluid resuscitation etc etc.
