Welcome to NephJC, the Twitter Nephrology Journal Club.
NephJC is a nephrology journal club that uses Twitter to discuss the research, guidelines, and editorials that are driving nephrology. After the chat the conversations are archived by Symplur and in Storify. You can also follow our posts on Pubmed.
March 13/14 we will discuss the pair of trials in NEJM from Vanderbilt: comparing balanced solutions to normal saline in critically ill & not ill patients. Join us for the next #NephJC to parse through SMART & SALT-ED
What's the risk of ESKD after a child has a resolved nephrology issue in childhood? Israeli military records answer the question.
This week, we will discuss the JAMA paper on disparities in living donor kidney transplant *rates* across race/ethnicities. There is a parallel paper from the UK, which shows somewhat similar findings. Join us Feb 6 and 7 to discuss on #NephJC!
How long should we allow metformin to remain the bogeyman in CKD? Should MALA scare us from ever letting our patients benefit from metformin? Join us as we discuss some rare prospective data on metformin in moderate to severe CKD.
Join us as we dissect a few key aspects of the mammoth undertaking that was the 2017 ACC/AHA blood pressure guidelines!
Join us Dec 19 and 20 as we discuss the MYRE trial from JAMA. Using a high cutoff dialyzer and removing light chains to help the kidneys heal faster
The NephJC Book Club is an annual tradition. Every summer we blog our way through a book of medical interest and have a Twitter-based book club discussion.
This was the third year. We read Vanessa Grubb's, Hundreds of Interlaced Fingers.
In 2016 we read Eric Topol's, The Patient Will See You Now
In 2015 we started the book club with Atul Gawande's, Being Mortal
