  30. Cenay nailor # seems to be the best of the lot in my opinion.

    April 20, 2008
  31. Hi, Berci! Nice list… you may also like to add these sites for medical procedures/patient education:

    At OR-Live ( ) you can watch – as one example – an entire normal, planned c-section performed. Two physicians operate, one narrates. The patient (and the baby) get to say Hi too. The video is about 70 minutes in length, at

    The U.S. National Library of Medicine, on the consumer health/patient education site MEDLINEPlus, provides video tutorials using both virtual patients and as an information source for actual patients, at:

    Some of these tutorials won’t be clinically-oriented enough for medical students or clinicians; however they are ideal for informing patients pre-op what will be happening to them during surgery. Medical librarians refer patients or family members to MEDLINEPlus quite frequently as a reputable source to answer specific health information. Hope those sites help,

    May 5, 2008
  32. Check our main websites: pediatric medical site about 660 videos video sharing site about 1000 videos

    Meet my experts:

    Our main library

    Many pediatricians and hospitals are linked to these pages.

    check a few examples:


    Hospitals: Maimonides Medical Center Schneider Children’s Hospital

    Do a google search “pediatric medical videos” or “DrMDK”

  33. Here is another site I would I like to point you attention to. Although stil in beta testing, Surgytec has attracted more than 1600 members sharing more than 350 video procedures. The official Launch is expected september this year.

    Surgytec is a community for and by surgeons it allows them to:
    Share insights and know-how that benefit colleagues and patients across the globe, find and access the most relevant and up-to-date surgical know-how across all surgical (sub)specialties discuss their own videos (procedures, techniques) and those of their peers

    It’s a platform dedicated to surgical videos, making it the starting point of choice for surgeons looking for video based surgical information
    every video is tagged with relevant keywords, making it easy to find.
    every video is reviewed by a moderator – a peer from the same surgical specialty – on quality of presentation before being released on SurgyTec
    SurgyTec allows members to comment, discuss (moderated) and rate individual videos resulting in a peer based ranking. Sharing your videos on SurgyTec is free

    Kind regards

    Pascal Boels

  55. Don’t forget the video science site
    They have over 43 catagories with hundreds of short educational science videos. Some of the people that come in and poke around the site all the time are from The University of Oxford Particle Physics Department, John Hopkins school of nursing or visitis from scientist who work at the Large Hadron Collider and many many more scientist from around the world. Some famous scientist are also members of the site too! I think a lot of them come by to get away from it all and enjoy watching science videos in general. Here are some of the categories.

    Aerospace Engineering
    Artificial Intelligence
    Biomedical Engineering
    Computer Science
    Earth Science
    Field trips in science

    Despite not doing the proper research, using single sources without confirmation, and writing a disparaging article BEFORE interviews with CCSVI physicians had been done, The Winnipeg Free Press decided that headline grabbing was preferential to printing a balanced and truthful front page article in the Saturday edition. It’s a matter of record that junior reporter Melissa Martin was tweeting that she had written an expose of CCSVI Clinic, before she had even interviewed the researcher involved with a study that CCSVI Clinic is co-sponsoring on safe and effective aftercare protocol for the “liberation Procedure”. If the hypothesis is confirmed, this protocol could help to dramatically reduce the 50% rate of restenosis in MS patients who choose to obtain the procedure abroad.
    Instead, The Winnipeg Free Press chose to attempt to create a scandal where none exists. The premise of the article maintained that clients of CCSVI Clinic are “pressured” through harassing phone calls and “multiple” mailings. In fact only one mailing that contains the clients results of their Doppler Ultrasound is ever sent out to every client and only one phone call is made by the nurse to the client to follow up and answer any questions they may have about their results. No further calls are made except where the patient requests help with some information or for requested help in navigating the system.
    Fjola Davidson, one of CCSVI Clinic’s clients who will shortly be receiving the new extended aftercare protocol following venous angioplasty surgery , said in fact said that she intends to send a “scathing letter to the Winnipeg Free Press” and that it was she “who was pressuring CCSVI Clinic to get to Noble Hospital, not the other way around”. Another client, Robert Prior, had been researching the best place to have the procedure and said, “ Once I read and understood your aftercare protocol, it became the only logical and realistic option as far as I was concerned. The Free Press article is disgusting.”
    In a late interview for this article, Doug Broeska, President of The CliniCard stated that the Free Press article is “disingenuous” and “false”. “I am not the spokesman for CCSVI Clinic, nor did I claim to be.” says Broeska. “She interviewed me for about four minutes and misquoted everything I said. The CliniCard does fulfillment for several clients using our medical record-keeping technology and I don’t presume to speak for those other clients either. Furthermore I know that Ms. Martin interviewed several other medical professionals actually involved with CCSVI Clinic and did not print what they had to say because it did not help to sensationalize her article. If the Winnipeg Free Press had printed anything close to the truth, they wouldn’t have had a story, let alone a headline, which is what the fabrication they printed was all about. I honestly don’t know how these people sleep at night.”
    Attempts to blog supporting comments under the article online have not been successful for everyone who’s tried. Lisa Chapil, the Nurse Administrator for CCSVI Clinic had her comment severely censored to the point it totally lost its message. In the new age of ‘managed’ news stories, it seems that the only freedom of speech that The Winnipeg Free Press supports is its own. Because you cannot read her comments anywhere else, Ms Chapil’s comments about the Free Press article are as follows:
    “There is a difference between responsible reporting and what Melissa Martin chose to write about the CCSVI Clinic in this article. She was in possession of factual information and documents that put the CCSVI Clinic in a favorable light but chose to withhold the information she received from interviews with people knowledgeable about CCSVI Clinic that would have conflicted with her agenda to smear our reputation in order to sensationalize her story and grab a headline. At no time did anyone from the CCSVI Clinic pressure patients into going to India for the Liberation Procedure. She should have considered that the one single person who made that claim clearly had her own agenda because she was disheartened by the ‘borderline’ results of her Doppler ultrasound. We simply provide information to people about our lengthened hospital stay and enhanced aftercare program should a patient decide to have the procedure. You can’t pressure someone to make an important decision about their health and all of our literature clearly states that. These MS patients are more knowledgeable about the CCSVI condition and about the options for treatment than most physicians are. To suggest that they can be pressured into a decision to have the procedure done in India is ludicrous. Patients who have signed up to be part of our open-ended study on the safety and efficacy of an enhanced aftercare protocol to reduce the rate of re-stenosis versus having the procedure on an outpatient basis (which may be contributing to long term failure of the procedure) have done so to ensure that they are getting the best care possible and because they want to be part of the important work we are doing on behalf of MS patients.”

When I found that my father had cancer, I immediately decided to take seriously how to handle growing marijuana seeds for medical purposes. However to find the strains and implement the growing process is very difficult.

    a cloth cover over the business financing fees during
