None of us want extra cheerleading and link-free repetition of memes; there are platforms for that. Low-value, link-free pom pom-wavers might be summarily whacked.

And for individuals who are new right here, this isn’t a mere well mannered request. We’ve got written website Insurance policies and those that remark have accepted these phrases.

Pulse Oximetry for Monitoring Sufferers with Covid-19 at Residence — A Pragmatic, Randomized Trial (letter) NEJM. n = 2097. From the textual content: “Amongst sufferers with Covid-19, didn’t end in a higher variety of days alive and out of the hospital than subjective assessments of dyspnea alone.” The headline is somewhat misleading; I might have thought probably the most helpful (i.e., life-saving) comparability would have been between sufferers who had been within the medical care system and those that had been outdoors it altogether. And whereas it’s good to know that, for the sufferers studied, listening to your physique (dyspnea) is enough with out extra expertise (the oximeter), these outcomes come two years into the pandemic.
