    Qualitative test for CO toxicity

    Hello there! One quick (and relatively insensitive) method to detect acute CO poisoning is to take a blood sample, dilute it and mix it with 5% NaOH. A pink tint in comparison with the colour obtained from a normal blood specimen (I've been told it'd be brown-ish?) suggests the presence of...

    Whats is like being a hematologist/oncologist?

    Hi everyone, I'm an M1 and I've been giving a lot of consideration to heme/onc as a specialty (I know its still early to decide). Would anyone be willing to share what it is like to be a heme/onc doctor? Given the seriousness and life-threatening nature of the diseases encountered, do you...

    Are Hem/Onc docs paid less than hospitalists in general?

    I heard from a current Hem/Onc fellow that hospitalists are paid higher than Hem/Onc specialists. I thought Hem/Onc had greater salaries, almost on par with Pulm/Crit and Cardiology, so I was just wondering how far was true. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Endocrinology vs Hematology

    Hello! I would like some opinions on whether you think hematology can be done as a second specialty to endocrinology (endocrine being the first). I couldn't find many resources dedicated to hematological problems in endocrine disorders. On a different note, if you were to choose between the two...
