Inflammation and sepsis

This collection of resources will support your teaching and learning in pathology, and covers inflammatory processes in health, disease, and trauma.
Richard Jones's insight:

Trying to get to grips with inflammation is quite tricky - there are a multitude of cellular and chemical responses to consider, and the complexity is staggering!

 

In preparation for teaching medical and dental students about inflammation, I have started to curate useful resources from the web on the pathophysiology of inflammation, and the adverse consequences of inflammatory processes, including systemic inflammation and sepsis.

 

There are some valuable videos covering the pathophysiology in interesting ways, including animations and mind-mapping/ drawings.

 

The influence of inflammatory processes in health and disease is still being elucidated, and there is some evidence that the complexity might be due to nonlinearity ('chaos'), perhaps explaining in part our inability to effectively treat systemic inflammatory response syndrome/ multiple organ failure/ severe sepsis beyond organ support in critical care settings.

Using aurasma augmented reality in forensic pathology - YouTube

A short introduction to the use of augmented reality in teaching - in this case forensic pathology - using a free app from Aurasma.com.

Richard Jones's insight:

 

I have been exploring how augmented reality might be integrated into my forensic pathology teaching, and this short video illustrates how 'value can be added' to pictures, using the free Aurasma.com app for tablets and smartphones (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/aurasma/id432526396?mt=8).

Images Of Disease Lite

Images Of Disease Lite | Pathology education | Scoop.it

Get Images Of Disease Lite on the App Store.

Richard Jones's insight:

Based on a collection of interactive images at http://web.med.unsw.edu.au/pathmus/ this app from the University of New South Wales, Australia aims to supplement teaching in pathology with annotated images of diseased organs.

 

The app comes in a free 'Lite' version containing a limited number of images, and a paid-for full version, which contains a large amount of reasonably good quality images. Each image comes with a short clinical history which is valuable.

 

Many of the images can also be found at https://www.best.edu.au/slice/featured which aims to increase the number of annotated digitised whole slides available for teaching, learning and sharing.

Richard Jones's insight:

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center have produced an excellent series of animated videos illustrating congenital heart defects, including Tetralogy of Fallot. These videos clearly show what the cardiac defects are, and the 3D animated models facilitate a greater understanding compared to 2D illustrations seen in most textbooks. These will complement your teaching and learning in paediatric placements.

Virtual microscopy in forensic pathology - cardiovascular system

Microscopy is an essential component of the practice of forensic pathology, and the following article draws together good examples of digital microscope slides relevant to autopsy pathology of the cardiovascular system available on the internet.
Richard Jones's insight:

A great way to learn about histology, and histopathology, is by viewing 'virtual microscope slides'.

 

Post mortem microscopy is an essential component of autopsy pathology, and this collection of virtual slides covers important pathological findings in the cardiovascular system, including atherosclerosis/ coronary artery disease, and myocardial infarction.

 

When you view the slides, try to recall the acute inflammatory process, and the consequences of ischaemia in the heart.

The General (External) Examination

Richard Jones's insight:

 

This is a well-crafted overview of the clinical examination of the external surface of the body - whilst it is aimed at clinical medical students, this will also be of interest to trainee pathologists, as the lesions identified in the living can also be recognised in the dead patient, and may provide clues as to the cause of death!
