How to be healthy in Ramadan in 2020

How to be healthy in Ramadan in 2020

April 18, 2020

How to be healthy in Ramadan while fasting in 2020- a resource for patients and clinicians

 

With Ramadan starting in a few days this video is a simple guide of how to keep healthy during Ramadan especially during our lockdown period due to cororonavirus

 

🔴 Subscribe: https://bit.ly/eGPlearningYTsubscribe 🔴 

 

For more information see this webpage: https://egplearning.co.uk/how-to-be-healthy-in-ramadan-in-2020/

 

Ramadan is here and particularly in the UK, each fast is about 17 hours and especially during our coronavirus lockdown. Fasting can have a physical and emotional toll on the human body. As a result, it is worth covering the common conditions that affect people during this time and how to keep healthy in Ramadan in 2020. This information is not for religious purposes.

 

This information is available here as a PDF for easy sharing: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wu4koq9zbohseup/How%20to%20be%20healthy%20when%20fasting%20in%20Ramadan.pdf?dl=0

 

Coronavirus advice

 

Medically it is not advised to fast if you are symptomatic. This can lead to significant risks to your personal health. If you feel you should fast while being symptomatic please discuss with you local imam - however, this is not medically recommended.

 

Please do not congregate outside of your own household and use tools like Zoom or Houseparty to keep in touch with friends and family. 

 

What to expect:

 

Firstly only fast if you feel able to. Several groups of people are recognised to be exempt from fasting. These include those:

 

✳️ with an illness  like coronavirus

✳️ who are traveling

✳️ who are young (before puberty) or of old age

✳️ who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

 

Because of the long time between starting the fast at sihori (suhoor/sunrise) and iftaar (sunset) in the UK, the fasting time of Ramadan can be a challenging 30 days of 17-hour fasts. If we have a hot summer this can make the fasting more difficult. Under coronavirus lockdown, this can be even more challenging. 

 

The first couple of days are difficult due to adapting to the lack of fluid and food. Often, after a few days, the body becomes used to this and sleep deprivation is often a greater challenge.  Ensure appropriate rest to tackle this, see below for tips.

 

Regarding work, explore with your employer alternate working patterns or use of leave if you are struggling. See our link on home working tips for more information. 

 

You should NOT see your GP for a fit note in this circumstance as fasting is not a medical sickness condition.

Understanding the hype cycle for primary care technology

Understanding the hype cycle for primary care technology

March 21, 2020

Today will talk about the hype cycle for primary care

What is the hype cycle?

  • A graphical representation of the maturity and adoption of trends or technologies
  • Model developed by Gartner https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gartner a US research and advisory firm. It is branded, they sell reports and analysis to industry. Thanks for the concept Gartner. 

Why might this be useful?

  • Useful as a way of conceptualising 
    • How technologies go through the journey from discovery to mainstream use
    • Recognising that hype does not always equate to real utility
    • Understanding that many technologies don’t make it to mainstream adoption
    • And that even those that will will have a period of reduced interest
    • Main application in timing your own or your organisations adoption of a technology and reducing the risks when you choose to embrace an innovation

 We are going to create the eGPLearning 2020 Primary Care Health Technology Hype Curve

Best webcam for video consultations

Best webcam for video consultations

March 12, 2020

Best equipment for video consultations in General Practice

Do you want to know the best equipment for video consultations in primary care and General Practice?

This blog will show you webcams, microphones and more than you may want to consider. This does contain affiliate links but all the products shown I have tried and tested unless mentioned.

Best Webcam for video consultations

With more clinicians and patients looking towards video consultations, having the right tools is key.

Best webcams for video consultations in GP

In this episode, I review three common webcams and show you which options are best, compared with using an in-built webcam. 

I review the Logitech C920 HD, Logitech C270 and the Dericam.

Logitech C920 HD

Many eGPlearners will know of my love of this webcam. It shoots in high-quality HD, is simple to use, has good audio and great autofocus. It also is a great option to use for video conferencing so it can double up effectively. It is the most expensive of the three and this may be an issue to some, but being able to use it on a separate stand and get with privacy covers (although often cheaper if bought separately) it is hard not to like this webcam and is my recommended webcam for video consultations

Logitech C270

I must admit I was pleasantly surprised by this webcam. It is easily the best budget option with great audio. The camera doesn’t shoot in full HD, but this may not be an issue for many. The lack of stand attachment is an issue for me because of my preference of how I use my webcams when consulting but if this is not for you then it is the best budget webcam for video consultations in my view. 

Dericam

I want to like the dericam. A webcam the cost of the C270 but the capabilities of the C920 HD. However, for video consultations, I find the dericam falls short of the C270. The wide-angle lens is better suited to video conferencing, and unfortunately, the in-built audio is not the best, but if you want a webcam that does the job it is often the cheapest available for the job. 

Other webcams

Other webcams you may want to consider, are the Logitech Brio and the B525.

The Brio is the market leader in quality and cost and shoots in 4k definition. I would easily argue this is unnecessary for video consultations and would not recommend it unless you had the money to burn. The B525 may seem more sensible and its swivel head and business credentials make it attractive. However, it shoots at the same definition as the C270 and is double the cost just for a swivel head. I would not recommend the cost and would argue at that level the C920 HD is the better option. 

Stands

Having a separate stand is a must in my view for webcam placement. I must admit I recommend a simple desk stand like this octopus one that I use. It is the perfect height for mid-screen placement and does the job. My switchpod I use more for video conferencing as the height is useful. 

Microphones:

I do recommend if able, to have a separate microphone than the webcam. This just improves the audio significantly. Here are some excellent options which I will be reviewing shortly.

Tonor desktop microphone: https://amzn.to/2TSaKCK

Blue Snowball: https://amzn.to/3cCZdQ4

MPOW corded headset: https://amzn.to/2TxrNuP

MPOW wireless headset: https://amzn.to/38t3Rgp

I will share my review of these soon but the Blue brand is always reliable. 

Additional tools:

Sometimes extra tools help. I know many get worried about the power of Google and webcam security. That is easy to fix, use a webcam privacy cover. These two are options with a plain or panda flavour version. 

Also, I love having a headphone hook for my equipment. It just makes it so accessible. This one on Amazon is great as it hangs off my monitor rather than my desk so less chance errant children will grab them in my consultation room.
