Publishing success

We are grateful to Terry McLoughlin, CT2 Emergency Medicine Trainee, currently on rotation at East Cheshire for taking the time to visit the Staff Library recently with this update.

Originally from Liverpool, Terry has previously worked in inner city locations but since February 2014 has been gaining experience in a rural setting, treating adult and paediatric patients in Macclesfield’s A&E department.

Formerly a professional rugby player, Terry has swapped tackling his opponents for tackling the publishing world and has seen one of his articles published in the Journal of Clinical Monitoring and Computing. The article looks at new capnography equipment used in anaesthesia.

Terry acknowledged the help and support of colleagues in A&E and the literature search assistance provided by library staff which had been so useful. As a regular night shift worker, Terry thought the Staff Library’s 24/7 service was an excellent feature and one his colleagues would appreciate.

Next on Terry’s agenda is a trip to Canada in June, where he will be presenting research at the ISPOR 19th Annual International Meeting (Montreal) entitled ‘Low incidence of venous thromboembolism in mobile populations’.  This builds on experience gained while working at the Royal London Hospital in 2012 during the London Olympics.  At that time the Royal London was the main tertiary hospital for the Olympic village.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish Terry every success when he returns to familiar pastures in his next placement at Liverpool’s Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

Huge holograms offer medics more memorable classes

See BBC News for the full article 18/6/13

“A system which uses giant holograms to help medical students master their subject has been pioneered by two London-based junior doctors.

They have demonstrated a 3D graphic of a kidney measuring 4m (13 ft) to demonstrate renal function at a “test lecture” last week.

It was one of a series of animations they are developing.”
