Things I learned from Medscape and Google Scholar at work today…

1) Cordless power tools don’t mix well with implantable cardioverter-defibrillators.

2) There is a procedure called “tongue suspension” for treating sleep apnea that involves screws and lots of surgical suture. Google image that for some disturbing pics 😛

3) People with mono shouldn’t take Amoxicillin unless they want lovely measles-like rashes. I really want to know how that works…

4) If you jump down the cited-by rabbit hole you can get from random-paper-about-antibiotics to case-report-of-awkward-mouth-bruises-of-questionable-origin in about 10 papers :S

Good times…
