odd[edit source]

when I login my screen freezes/ I cant edit (hence the reason Im leaving you this note as an IP) I'm guessing its something that will slowly get be frank I wanted to add articles related to COVID pandemic....Ozzie User:Ozzie10aaaa talk

See if that fixed it User:Ozzie10aaaa. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:55, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
I turned off 'twinkle', that fixed it, thanks--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 19:19, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa I may have forgot to turn on you of your functions. Get to have you here and this working. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:21, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
[1] on it, should be a couple of days,(wanted to tell you this is a very good effort/project, thus you never know how far it will go and help people) Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:48, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks User:Ozzie10aaaa. Yes hopefully we will get this initial import down in a week or so. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 17:20, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Doc James... other drugs/procedures[2] completely imported (plus yesterdays essential meds)...tomorrow I'll start looking at price/dosage slowly one by one --Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 20:39, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
Perfect thanks User:Ozzie10aaaa. Am on call tonight so will hopefully get through returning prices to all the essential medicines.
With respect to "dosages" I am adding that section at the bottom of "medical uses" and trying to include the defined daily dose (DDD) when those details are present.
This is a good website for DDDs as seen here[3] Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 20:59, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
have started to add DDD to all essential meds (per where left off dosage working point on list), Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 17:51, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa yes dose not exist for all medications. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 22:16, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
Doc James, Sandy Georgia is giving me some trouble on WP, will be back when done(just emailed you)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:49, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

James, User:Ozzie10aaaa: When importing articles, it is essential to import the entire edit history as far as possible. Can we please make sure the box "Copy all history revisions for this page" is always ticked? I know this means a slower import, but the conditions for attribution require either that or an unambiguous link back to the revision exported from enwiki. Obviously the former is always preferable. Can we go back and re-import the full history for all articles where that hasn't been done? That may result in some wasted effort, but I do feel it's important to get this right. --Doug (talk) 19:52, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

User:Doug and User:Ozzie10aaaa our tech person is building a tool to do that history import for all articles imported. So no need to do it manually Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 21:40, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
User:Doug and User:Ozzie10aaaa have adjusted the footer so it now links to the Wikipedia page directly :-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 22:33, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

dosage info[edit source]

  • about halfway thru 'essential meds'(may take me an extra day to finish)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:55, 14 August 2020 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa have paraphrased a bit more and added the reference :-) Heparin#Dosage Ref toolbar is now working and you can turn it on under preferences.
Another useful source for medication doses is [5]. The nice thing about this one is we do not need to fully paraphrase as they are under a CC BY SA license. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 08:44, 20 August 2020 (UTC)
Doc James yes the other source is useful as well, will paraphrase more, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 20:50, 20 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. I will eventually go through and double check everything :-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 21:17, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

Peritoneal dialysis[edit source]

seems out of place on the essential list(IMO)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 18:34, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

User:Ozzie10aaaa the item on the list is Intraperitoneal dialysis solution which is included within peritoneal dialysis thus why it is there.
By the way you want to use this source
To add the DDDs to the items under "Other drugs / procedures" here WikiProjectMed:Translation_task_force/RTT(Simplified)L Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:28, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
thanks didn't notice redirect(Happy Labor day), and yes will use for next column as this one is almost done...further Id like to thank you for the correction [6] Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 14:41, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

other drugs/procedures[edit source]

per [7] added DDDs are given as fixed doses of 6 UD for throat preparations...however did not place in infobox (Doc James with a few exceptions the rest of other drugs/procedures were finished by you)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 17:13, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

User:Ozzie10aaaa yes :-) We now just need to switch the MSH instances to the WHO ref for the Essential Medicines. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:24, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
yes--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:45, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

different sources[edit source]

this gives [8] 500 U , yet the same ATC code B02BD02 gives nothing at [9]..? (also added [10] let me know if ok)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 18:20, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

Hum interesting. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 14:36, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
  • almost done …(wanted to clarify DDDs are not established for all medicines ….vaccines [11] ,as a result the DDD result was not placed in infobox, though it was placed in the body of article. The exception being BGC vaccine[12]--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 13:59, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Doc James have checked and added references for Far-sightedness[15] will begin Spinal muscular atrophy--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 00:46, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks User:Ozzie10aaaa Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:48, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

uptodate/other matters[edit source]

are we accepting/using[16]?...(BTW when I imported [17] I seem to have imported a couple of non-useful pages, should I export?)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 18:47, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

User:Ozzie10aaaa I generally avoid Uptodate as it is not possible to link to any specific version.
I think what you have imported is fine :-) Just got back form hiking and heading into a set of nights. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:34, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
Doc James thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:50, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
Done [18] (due to off-wiki [19] matter that has gradually improved, I should apologize for the extent of time taken to do '1 article', I will be starting Patellar tendinitis)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 21:37, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
No worries :-) User:Ozzie10aaaa Having been working on leads of articles again. Have done 36 as listed here WikiProjectMed:List so far. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 07:30, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
yes leads are very important, I expect to pick-up my pace --Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:19, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
what I noticed about the prior 'gallery' for Rib fracture was that the images were too small, however your edit is an improvement, thanks--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:24, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
Yah setting gallery image sizes works well :-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:19, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
(note- I left this ref ...McTavish, D.; Buckley, M. M.; Heel, R. C. (July 1991). "Omeprazole. An updated review of its pharmacology and therapeutic use in acid-related disorders". Drugs. 42 (1): 138–170. doi:10.2165/00003495-199142010-00008. ISSN 0012-6667. Retrieved 17 October 2020.(dated-1991)...since its a medication not a condition perhaps we let this one thru (1991) in terms of MEDRS... could use[27])
User:Ozzie10aaaa I think that is reasonable. Often stuff like this is defined early on before medication approval and dose not change much afterwards. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:48, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
Doc James thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 17:01, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
  • so we are in favor of [28] in contrast to MEDMOS(which allows 'classification' at start of article and diagnosis) in our efforts here...--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 14:38, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
    • User:Ozzie10aaaa I think so. The classification systems only come into play after the initial diagnosis has been made. And they are part of making a more specific diagnosis... Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 14:51, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
  • ok, sounds good(edited articles indicated above, will be back Wednesday), James thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 14:55, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

(James I dont mean to be an opportunist, however Flyer22_Frozendue to recent events there may be an available editor that would be good to reach out to...--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 22:15, 10 December 2020 (UTC))

Thanks User:Ozzie10aaaa I am sure they are burnt out and likely need a break. Feel free to reach out and invite them here though :-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 22:51, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
good, just sent an email, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 23:26, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

2021[edit source]

User:Ozzie10aaaa I think it is reasonable, especially for an easy to understand overview. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:41, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
ok, will leave(though per MEDRS....)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:44, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa The orthobullets are written by orthopods. If a better source contradicts anything would suggest we replace with the better source. I would consider this like emedicine or webmd, okish but happy for better sources to replace. But no need to remove and leave with no source. Thoughts? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:53, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
yes agree, will look for better source(should none be available, will then leave as is), Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:56, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
  • I've come across a good article by Hindawi, per this there not really predatory journals[32], should I use it?, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:12, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa which article? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:30, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
