March 13/14 we will discuss the pair of trials in NEJM from Vanderbilt: comparing balanced solutions to normal saline in critically ill & not ill patients. Join us for the next #NephJC to parse through SMART & SALT-ED
This was another great #NephJC. Notable for many firsts:
- Hosting debuts by #NSMC intern, Silvi Shah, and RenalMed founder, Matt Graham-Brown (the latter also wrote the pre-chat summary)
- Lot of fresh faces (hello Pawan, Todd and Sian) and over 700 tweets from more than 60 tweeps
The transcripts and storifys are also already done - and up on the page, due to uber-fast curation from Hector.
Lastly, we have the pleasure of announcing the winners of the coveted #NEJMCup. There were many great tweets, so it took some time to sift through all the nominees. Here are the winning tweets:
Congratulations, Kevin and Sian! Your #NEJMCups should be on the way soon, courtesy of the New England Journal of Medicine.
We are discussing an NEJM article next week (on that note check out the summary, written by Matt Graham-Brown). The hurdle? Its behind a subscriber-only wall - and this is an issue that has come up as a barrier for many of us not in academia or with a personal subscription to the Journal. However, the nice people at the Journal have kindly agreed to make it easily accessible for #NephJC readers - use the link on our summary page, and you will get the full text.
But there is more good news. Like what we have done in the past with JAMA, the best tweet of the night will get a prize. One for each chat.
Lastly, thanks to Lisa Rosenbaum for opening to doors to NEJM for us.
