Welcome to my daily learning journal. My daily goal is to watch one Ted Talk and one cataract surgery. I also plan to read one journal article and read/listen to a book chapter, short story or significant work.
Here’s today’s list:
1. Ted Talk – Jenna McCarthy – What you don’t know about marriage – “In this funny, casual talk from TEDx, writer Jenna McCarthy shares surprising research on how marriages (especially happy marriages) really work. One tip: Do not try to win an Oscar for best actress.” (ted.com).
This was a trending talk. 6 million+ views and worth a watch.
2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – Complete Case: Retained Viscoelastic – “Retained viscoelastic after cataract surgery is the most common reason why there is an elevation of the intra-ocular pressure (IOP) in the immediate post-op period. This can last from between 1 day to 1 week after the cataract surgery and it is different from steroid-inducted pressure spikes which tend to happen 10 days to 2 weeks after surgery.”
3. Journal – Conrady CD, Demirci H, Wubben TJ. Retinal Whitening After Lung Transplant for Cystic Fibrosis. JAMA Ophthalmol. 2020;138(9):994–995. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2020.1306
4. Book Chapter – Walt Whitman – Leaves of Grass: Sparknotes, Wikipedia, and Gutenberg. Books 11.
