Ep. 24 - No, HHS’ purchase of Nplates is not for COVID-19 vaccines
The FLATLINING Podcast
This week on the FLATLINING Podcast, Ron and Matthew venture down the COVID-19 vaccine conspiracy theory rabbit hole. When Matthew reported about the Department of Health and Human Services’ purchase of an acute radiation sickness drug last week, some jumped to say that “really the Nplate drug is used to treat thrombotic thrombocytopenia syndrome caused by COVID-19 vaccines.” Ron and Matthew dive into what thrombotic thrombocytopenia syndrome is and why the claim is bogus.
Tech is having a greater and greater influence in the world and healthcare is no exception. Matthew and Ron discuss some of the latest tech trends in healthcare, including the vast expansion of telemedicine and online charts and how artificial intelligence could play a major role going forward.
