We're back, Hacking Science with Ricky Ditzel, Esq. III- Lead R&D guy with SOM-C, the editor for the Journal of High Threat and Austere Medicine, and, flight medic in the Army. Self described huge fan of The Eagles (not the Bald kind or the legendary band kind...just the Philadelphia kind.)
In Part one of this two part discussion, Sean apologizes to Ricky and they discuss the first time they hugged at SOMSA. Ricky spits out disruptive smart guy stuff like a lyrical genius…things like; calcium chloride, calcium gluconate, calcium neutral safe places, and something called DIC…which turned out to be totally different than what Ryan and Sean were thinking. Clotting cascade physiology, fibrinogen and fibrin, some info about his working group- which has smart guys with very odd initials and credentials after their names…Also...some protocol creations, a few specific dumb ass comments that others have made in opposition to Ricky's calcium crusade, a little flight medic insight with triage and hand-offs, but, most importantly…we discuss 3 other things, that when combined, will make you appear 33% better looking to 42% of the members of the opposite sex…FACT(ish). The mathematical wizardry used to calculate those percentages was performed using RCT and Meta-analysis with a p value of 0.05…so #EBM and #epistemology (how James Ferrier the Scottish philosopher would be puking in his mouth now…) Oh, and the squats that Ryan will be doing to prepare for his own crusade of bringing back the 1970’s era Ocean Pacific corduroy short shorts…
