#ProtectingSight #358: Electronic pills that could transform how we treat disease. An IOL stuck in the incision & pseudo-papilledema. Values in financial markets.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Khalil Ramadi: Electronic pills that could transform how we treat disease. “Could a small jolt of electricity to your gut help treat chronic diseases? Medical hacker and TED Fellow Khalil Ramadi is developing a new, noninvasive therapy that could treat diseases like diabetes, obesity, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s with an electronic pill. More targeted than a traditional pill and less invasive than surgery, these micro-devices contain electronics that deliver “bionudges” — bursts of electrical or chemical stimuli — to the gut, potentially helping control appetite, aid digestion, regulate hormones — and even stimulate happiness in the brain.” (ted.com)

Fascinating Ted Talk.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1126: the IOL is stuck in the incision. Excellent learning case.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Pseudo-Papilledema.

Dr. Lee’s neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.

4. TIP352: MASTERMIND Q2 2021. “In today’s episode, Stig Brodersen speaks to Tobias Carlisle and Hari Ramachandra for the Mastermind Discussion of Q2 2021. Together, they discuss where they see value in the financial markets. They try and shoot holes in each other’s stock picks and help each other as much as possible.”

The TIP quarterly mastermind sessions are always a favorite. Love the process of analysis for individual securities, competing markets and other challenges.
