Melatonin for Sepsis

You’re following along on my page bc you know I’m trying to find the most cutting-edge treatments and therapies for my critically ill patients. I hope to keep on pumping out eye catching content such as this article on melatonin. Please share with you’re nerdy friends who would also find this nerdy content I put out interesting.

Yes, melatonin. I finished my lecture today on metabolic resuscitation and this article was published just a few days ago. It’s actually free and you can download it from my website, eddyjoemd.com. I have learned a ton of fascinating facts regarding melatonin as to why is SHOULD work. I can see the eyes rolling already. No, there aren’t any double blind, randomized controlled trials on this but one is in the works.

It definitely makes me curious as this is yet another therapy that many of us take during the day to sleep while on night shifts and is benign (based on years and years of studies listed in this article).

Fascinating stuff, right? Did you know that melatonin did all these cool things? I surely didn’t. Now I do... and that’s why I read as much as I do. A 🎩 tip to the authors!

The primary source of compensation I receive for this page and Instagram work is via Amazon Affiliates. All this free education you receive is much out of the kindness of my heart but I also like to receive a check every month from Affiliate Marketing. No one likes to work for free. The best part is that it's of no cost to you. Here's how it works:

You click on the link for Will Owens' awesome ventilator book here: https://amzn.to/2myFxYm and whether or not you purchase the book I receive a small commission for whatever you buy on Amazon for the next 24 hours at no cost to you. For every copy of the Ventilator book people have bought off of my affiliate links, for example, I have earned $0.85. I know it's not big money but it helps motivate me to keep on plugging along doing this heavy lifting in Critical Care. Thank you for supporting my work!
