Welcome to Medoodle

The international medical community and professional network

...based on the popular Radiology community Radiolopolis...

The All-Around-Medicine Community

The purpose of this medical community is to create a possibility, where most of the needs of physicians, residents, medicals students, physician assistants, nurses, technologists and industry can be melted within one central medical network. It is based on a "taking and giving" principle, where you share your knowledge and others do the same.


Some features:

  • Share cases and your knowledge
  • Ask professionals for their opinion - in public or in private
  • Find people with similar interests, create new connections and expand your professional network
  • Discuss medical topics in dedicated forums - from residency to practice
  • Prepare for the USMLE / medical baords
  • Find tutorials and eLearning material
  • Share your images, videos, teaching files and lectures
  • Simplify your research and find partners worldwide
  • Create or join research and study groups
  • General and medical specific search engines
  • Read medical news from multiple subspecialties
  • Publishing case reports (cooperation with the JRCR)
  • Helpful tools for your daily work (calculators, case tracker, clinical, research tools, etc.)
  • ...and much more...
The best: IT'S FREE!

Precipitants of heart failure must be fully considered when predicting readmission
This study should be commended for attempting to further the field by determining if differences exist between patients with ischaemic and nonā€ischaemic heart disease. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Executive Functioning in Alcoholics Following an mHealth Cognitive Stimulation Program: Randomized Controlled Trial
Conclusions: The overall increase in general cognitive function for both experimental and control groups supports the beneficial role of existing alcohol treatment protocols aimed at minimizing withdrawal symptoms, but the differential improvements observed in frontal lobe functioning supports the use of mobile serious games for neuropsychological stimulation to overcome executive dysfunction in patients with alcohol dependence. This trial was negative on two neuropsychological/cognitive tests, and positive on one. Trial Registration: ClinicalTrials.gov NCT01942954; http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01942954 (Archived by WebCite at http://www.webcitation.org/6OYDqHLwB).

The in vitro GcMAF effects on endocannabinoid system transcriptionomics, receptor formation, and cell activity of autism-derived macrophages
Conclusions: This study presents the first observations of GcMAF effects on the transcriptionomics of the endocannabinoid system and expression of CB2R protein. These data point to a potential nexus between endocannabinoids, vitamin D and its transporter proteins, and the immune dysregulations observed with autism.

Biomarkers of cardio-renal damage in chronic kidney disease: one size cannot fit all
Biomarkers are useful tools for diagnosis and risk assessment of acute kidney injury and acute heart failure, particularly in ICU patients. Most biomarkers are produced or cleared by the kidney, so the presence of chronic kidney disease may affect their clinical reliability, particularly if the putative diagnosis of acute kidney injury or acute heart failure is based on a single measurement/single threshold approach. Better alternatives, such as establishing different diagnostic cutoff values per different chronic kidney disease strata or evaluating the diagnostic performance of a delta value (change from baseline levels) instead of a single threshold, should be carefully considered in critically ill patients with renal impairment and other co-morbidities.Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is hi...

Cost-outcome description of clinical pharmacist interventions in a university teaching hospital
Conclusion: This study provides further evidence that pharmacist interventions provide substantial cost avoidance to the healthcare payer. There is a serious issue of patient's regular medication being omitted on transfer to an inpatient setting in Irish hospitals.

Cross-Correlations and Joint Gaussianity in Multivariate Level Crossing Models
A variety of phenomena in physical and biological sciences can be mathematically understood by considering the statistical properties of level crossings of random Gaussian processes. Notably, a growing number of these phenomena demand a consideration of correlated level crossings emerging from multiple correlated processes. While many theoretical results have been obtained in the last decades for individual Gaussian level-crossing processes, few results are available for multivariate, jointly correlated threshold crossings. Here, we address bivariate upward crossing processes and derive the corresponding bivariate Central Limit Theorem as well as provide closed-form expressions for their joint level-crossing correlations.

Acupuncture at local and distal points for chronic shoulder pain: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial
DiscussionThis trial will be helpful in identifying whether acupuncture at local acupoints in combination with distal acupoints may be more effective than needling points separately.Trial registration: International Standard Randomized Controlled Trial Number Register: ISRCTN61861069 (http://www.controlled-trials.com).

Guidance strategies for a participatory ergonomic intervention to increase the use of ergonomic measures of workers in construction companies: a study design of a randomised trial
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the face-to-face guidance strategy and the e-guidance strategy on the primary outcome measure: use of ergonomic measures by individual construction workers, and on the secondary outcome measures: the work ability, physical functioning and limitations due to physical problems of individual workers. Methods: The present study is a randomised intervention trial of six months in 12 companies to establish the effects of a PE intervention guided by four face-to-face contacts (N = 6) or guided by 13 email contacts (N = 6) on the primary and secondary outcome measures at baseline and after six months. Construction companies are randomly assigned to one of the guidance strategies with the help of a computer generated randomisation tabl...

CD4+CD25+/highCD127low/- regulatory T cells are enriched in rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis joints - analysis of frequency and phenotype in synovial membrane, synovial fluid and peripheral blood
Conclusions: Treg enrichment into the joint compartment is not specific to inflammatory arthritis, as it was similarly found in OA. RA pathophysiology might not be due to a Treg deficiency, since Treg concentration in SM was significantly higher in RA. Synovial Tregs represent a distinct phenotype and are activated effector memory cells (CD62L-CD69+), while peripheral Tregs are resting central memory cells (CD62L+CD69-).
