Medical Jellybeans with @TheTopEnd

Jellybeans. Conversations with Care. The Jellybeans started here and are now also hosted on lifeinthefastlane.com (The Original) & www.IntensiveCareNetwork.com This is the complete collection. Sometimes containing more controversial offerings.

Jellybean 96; Big Data with Nik Kumar

Big data. It’s very big. There’s a lot of it. It’s Jellybean time. Matt McPartlin strikes gold in Wollongong.

Moment to moment information on heart rate, respiratory rate, how much urine has come out, how much fluid has gone in, the sodium, the glucose, the pH and what was had for breakfast. And that’s just one hour, from one patient in one of sixteen beds, in one ICU, in one hospital, in one city, from one state.

That’s a lot of data. It takes machines and algorithm to process. Intelligence of the artificial type. Automated processing.

So who manages the machines? Who decides what patterns to watch for? What can be learned from it.

Big data is a term that has become increasingly tossed around at research meetings and medical conferences. The multi-centre RCT is under attack. It’s expensive, restrictive and only ever seems to beget more RCTs. Is Big Data here to replace RCTs or to refine it?

Big data may be more reflective of real world practice and variance. Like a mega-collection of annecdotal evidence – a Megadote, or maybe a Metadote.

Nik Kumar is an ICU registrar who trundled along to the ANZICS Datathon in April to see what all the fuss was about and whether he could use it for some of the projects he had in mind. He went with few expectations. He came back with a whole new perspective on not just data collection and analysis but on collaborative research and future directions for determining trends in practice. He also likes pizza.

Big thanks to Matt for recording another Jellybean. Thanks to Dr Nik Kumar for explaining some high end health focused data science. It is not a main stream thing. (Yet.) It is one of those interesting things that hang around at the edges of our working lives.

Here at the Jellybean podcast, we love the fringes. We love to learn a little more about the stuff that isn’t in the books, that’s not on any syllabus but is relevant. It might seem small but as we should all know; from little things big things grow.

Thanks to Big Data for making the music. We couldn’t resist using one of their tunes. The intro and outro music is from Big Data’s track Dangerous

So.... you see the little dots in the middle of the white line where the Typhoon will probably be on early Saturday am? That’s The Yaeyama Islands. That’s where we are. That’s where we will be early Saturday am. Mmmmm #typhoon

I’ve never seen a jet pass by this close at cruising altitude. I thought they usually travelled in the opposite direction at a significantly different altitude? Is that a #nearmiss

@wanderingsootball I used to travel with Sluggy all the time. He still comes on many trips but he is less of an exhibitionist these days. Or maybe he just didn’t want to steal all the limelight. I don’t know. He doesn’t talk much. But somehow I feel that Kuro and Sluggy might get on. He’s made of slugginess and slime. He’s not made of soot but he is a big fan of Spirited Away. Am I right in assuming that Kuro is in fact one of the very talented soot ball actors from the scenes in the boiler room with Kamaji, the Boilerman?

My mate Gerry. A winemaker and wine thief #extraordinaire Here clambering among French oak at @willowcreekvineyard in ninja like fashion ( the equally agile @mammoth_wine might be concerned about her bringing a knife to a gun-fight! ) thanks to @mpplunge for a great day.
