TikTok not only has bad advice about medical cures and treatments, but advertisements for some useless and misleading devices. Today I look at some dangerous and murky claims made about health and medicine on TikTok, including chiropractors, kneecaps, brain exercises, gym form on weight machines, fingernails, stem cells, neck stretchers, the spins from drinking, male birth control, sperm cells, prescription drugs for mental health, plastic surgery, bears, chest compressions, ear lobes, Rob McElhenney's body transformation, kegels, prosthetic legs, running on all fours, spicy food, raw vegan diet, eye tattoos, ab exercises, FDA approvals, foot fungus, freckle tattoos, and OnlyJayus spoon claims.
I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

The plastic surgeon who did my breast reduction agreed that the reduction was warranted to reduce my back pain but she also wanted my psychologist to evaluate me for body dysmorphia and to ensure my anxiety wouldn't be a danger around an elective procedure. Sure it was annoying to wait a bit longer before getting the surgery but I was glad she took it all seriously. I was pretty excited for the surgery so I can see why it might worry a doctor...but I lost 2.6 kg of breast tissue in total and I'm still a D cup it was well worth the risk of anxiety attacks lol.

I'm a medical student and for one of my clinical rotations I went to one of the most advanced emergency hospitals here and they had the chest compression kit like in 4:58 in their emergency room. And let me tell you it's f*ing terrifying seeing this working in a real life situation.

Yes! But the energy it saves in interns and Med students and nurses rotating through doing chest compressions when instead the machine can do them allowing the staff to do the brain requiring bits… it’s amazing. The trauma center near me has one too and they’ve said it’s a miracle and life saver, especially when they get multiple heart attacks or multiple crash victims around the same time.

I saw the Lucas machine in action recently when a middle-aged man collapsed in the hospital car park. Unfortunately the fastest route to the resuscitation rooms from the car park was through the actual A&E waiting room itself 🙈. This machine does literally look and sound the same when being used on an actual human as it did on the mannequin video here. The guy I saw it being used on survived by the way. They brought the unit in to the pod (aka cubicle room) my husband was being treated in, to recharge afterwards. The nurse I spoke to further about the Lucas unit, said it helped improve survival chances, as it - freed up the finite human resource available to carry out other checks and procedures, - it didn’t get tired, it could be attached to a power supply to allow for continued use whilst charging the battery for portable use, and - a defibrillator could still be utilised whilst it was attached.

THANK YOU ABOUT THE BODY DYSMORPHIA TALK! It's really saddening to see how many people immediately jump into doing plastic surgery, and that society as a whole seems to support and push people into doing it, instead of trying to build people's confidence and self-esteem as who they are. To say that someone like Natalie Dyer needs to get her faced changed in such a way is ridiculous, she's already beautiful as she is. People don't need to start looking like plastic dolls that all resemble one another.
Because "negativity" and "shaming" is no longer ok. If if it's objectively untrue or dangerous.

The LUCAS robots are actually apparently really useful for EMS if they need to continue chest compressions in an ambulance. It makes it a lot stabler in the vehicle and allows the paramedics to potentially focus on other aspects of care (such as administering a medication, getting an airway secured, placing leads to better monitor heart rhythm in case the pulse is there but just very weak or there's a different circulation issue, etc.)

11:35 That condition is known as trench foot. It's called that because so many soldiers fighting in trenches during WWI suffered from it. Since the trenches were dug with poor drainage systems, they would often be partly flooded with water, leading soldiers feet to rot from soaking.

The best baby reflexes are when you lightly touch the side of their cheek with your finger, their little head turns and their mouth opens slightly and it’s the cutest thing ever 🥰 The second one is taking your finger and gently gliding it on the sole of their foot. It extends their foot and wiggles their toes in the most adorable way! This is also a neat trick to help a parent get shoes on a toddler if they crinkle their toes into a ball and won’t extend them 😂 My oldest son ended up in the NICU for a long period of time and before he finally came home the doctor spent a long time showing me how to properly check his reflexes. She taught me how to check everything from his head, all the way to his toes and showed me exactly how the reflexes were supposed to look so I knew what to expect and if there might be something wrong. I’ve had two more kids since then and I did the same thing for both of them even though they had no health concerns at birth. I also taught my friends how to check their babies as well 🥰 not only is it good for parents to check these things but it’s also so stinkin cute!
The chest compression machine is commonly used in the German emergency services. (Probably in USA as well i guess) the main upside is that it connects to a spineboard and continue to do good chest compressions while transporting someone to the hospital

@@gkb0572 You know that doesn't work, right? Sweat as you're moving about can be just as problematic as trekking through areas that are extremely moist or humid. So you're basically wasting an extra pair or two of socks as they get drenched in sweat. Further more, those plastic bags do not work with constant movement, as there is no way to adhere the opening of the bag to your skin enough to prevent moisture from seeping into the bag as your leg and muscles are moving about. The correct thing to do is to be carrying several fresh pairs of socks in your backpack or rucksack and to change them at minimum every 6 hours if you're in an area with decent humidity, moisture, or if you are sweating, or every 3 hours minimum if you are constantly traveling through swampland.

Hey doc, first off, you're great. I just found your channel and I really enjoy watching. The LUCAS machine is typically for extended rides on an ambulance to aid first responders in giving compressions. I don't know if you've ever given compressions in the back of a moving vehicle for 20+ minutes but it ain't easy. Heck, even giving compressions for 20 mins while stationary ain't a small feat. Those machines are a really great tool to have in your truck.

(won't go into detail but I was in horrible stress every single day from age 12 to 18) I got an x-ray and MRI done and doc says my neck curve is now inverted (along with a few other issues that were very medical jargan heavy so idk what they meant) and I now deal with a lot of horrible neck pain everyday due to it

I can totally vouch for the horrors of psych med withdrawal. I'm Bipolar (type 2), experience the usual hypomanic and depressive episodes, but also the rarer mixed episodes, which IMO are worse than either of the other two because they're roughly the same as having BOTH at the same time. The physical symptoms from Cymbalta (duloxetine) or Effexor withdrawal already suck and start within a few hours of missing a dose-sortuva built in alarm to take them but that it's already too late so ya can't drive for a couple of hours. Some people describe it as a zap or buzz (not like being high/drunk, rather your brain buzzes inside your skull) or watching Hollywood special effects on a low framerate, say 5-8 frames per second-jarring and unpleasant. Headache follows. An emotional crash follows that if left unmitigated. Going off these meds should be tapered and bystanders alerted so as to monitor effects the consumer may not see in themself. Now for my mood stabilizer I take 200mg of Lamictal (lamotrigine), which is fairly high. It takes weeks to ramp up to that level safely, and it's just as important, if not more, to ramp down slowly. In addition to the psychiatric effects of going off too quickly, Lamictal's higher rate of incidence of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, which is dangerous and characterized by intense skin rash. The psychiatric effects of withdrawal may all be present even when dosage tapers slowly. These symptoms include all those the patient typically feels during any of their episodes plus sensory wonkiness (it's a technical term), and other altered mood symptoms, e.g. inexplicable anger or crying. Again, a patient should only changed doses with the supervision and guidance of a professional and the patient should entrust key persons regularly around them to keep an eye out for unusual or dangerous symptoms, for the patient's senses and perceptions will be off until withdrawal ends. To go off Lamictal suddenly can be catastrophic in numerous ways. Mood stabilizers are powerful psychotropics affecting multiple neurological pathways and should never be messed with or taken lightly. Both times I went off Lamictal had to do with access issues and the episodes have left me terrorized about ever losing access to my meds again and thus try to somehow have at LEAST a week supply extra each time my prescription refill comes due. I'll spare you the details, but I'm lucky one of the episodes was merely disastrous financially and not worse medically. I was a physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially haggard man for a couple of weeks after only three days of withdrawal from Effexor and Lamictal. It could be argued that I've never recovered from that debacle 18 years ago.

As impractical as a chest compressions kit is as far as having it around when you need it goes, honestly I think there should be one with every AED station, so in schools, in government buildings, with the first aid kits at worksites, like, I'd say, even if the chance that no one around knows how to do CPR is really small, if it can save a life, I think that 1% of people it would help would really appreciate not dying that day!

Dear Doctor Mike, the Devise seen at 4:51 is called "Lucas" and is used by paramedics in Europe (or at least here in Austria where i am one) for CRP treatment, precisely said chest compressions during Transport of patients to a Hospital to keep the chest compressions running. Its customizable for many adult patient Sitzes and is much safer for everyone involved, especially if it has to go fast and the ambulance driver has to drive like the protagonist from the Fast and furious franchise

For the sillicone contraption (3rd clip), it would be extremely unhelpful for an endoscopy actually! The reason being that the plastic gag they put in your mouth is hard, so you can bite into it for when they insert the tube through your mouth, since (at least for me) the moment the tube went behind the uvula, I wanted to bite into it as a reflex. And since youre not really supposed to move your jaw at all, biting into it kind of keeps the jaw in place. Not a medical professional but Im speaking from experience as someone whos had to go through endoscopy :D (as well as a nasoendoscopy but you dont need something to prevent your nose from biting lol) ---The sillicone thing is potencially some weird tongue scraper, although idk why a toothbrush wouldnt suffice (?)

Dr. Mike, the Lucas machine (chest compression machine) is something we carried on every ambulance and fire truck in New Orleans. It helps keep compressions consistent and avoids interruptions due to fatigue. Super helpful when personnel is limited such as a paramedic and their partner being the only two responders. You do manual compressions while it’s set up, and switch to the device during a pulse check. It can provide constant compression during defibrillation, movement of the patient, etc.

And not long after I went to a smaller clinic because who wants to be made to wait months just for a medication refill appointment.

I’m a paramedic in Switzerland and we use the chest compression machine (Lucas 3) primarly on ambulances and air ambulances. We use it when a patient has other injuries other than a cardiac harrest that need immediate care. It’s consistent and the batteries can last up to 20h. We normally engage the Lucas when for example the patient is very far from the nearest hospital. The model that we use has also has an ECG integrated, so it knows when it has to stop compressing or it needs to restart pumping. It’s a cool instrument to make our job much easier. Thank you for your videos, always a big fan of you. Byeeee

7:43 "Next time you eat, pay attention if your nose starts to run" This I agree with, mostly so you don't make a big mess (Which is partially why I have a ton of napkins with me at all times, the other part is I grew up in home where there was always the fear of not having enough stuff in general but that's besides the point) "If you're eating and your nose starts to run, STOP EATING. If I eat something that's not good for me, my nose runs" This is the part where I disagree, not only for the reasons Dr Mike gives but also for the fact that this has NEVER been the case for me. Every time my nose has ever run when eating, it was when I was eating spicy food. You know what I also had while eating said food at those times? Stuffy nose. So for me, Spicy food appears to be effective at basically getting my nose unblocked. I'm not gonna sit here and say it'll totally work for everyone (unless an actual expert can chime in and say "Yeah, it totally works for everyone" and explains how), but I'm sure I'm one of many examples where having a runny nose while eating food does not automatically mean "Its bad for you". Just my two slightly dusty cents.
Also, to the guy talking about raw food: I have several chronic disorders (eoe, ibs, oral allergy syndrome) that prevent me from eating many raw vegetables and fruits. Cooking them breaks down certain fibres and proteins which then makes it safer for me to consume and get the nutrients I need 😊
Also love how he states. "It will cure everything." I wish. I mean. I'd love it, but considering I have a neurological condition that's barely understood despite being known from at least the 1600s. It ain't gonna happen.

Also people with constant allergy struggles, like not food allergies, will have more of a runny nose any time you are doing stuff with your face. Chewing, especially a hot or cold thing, will effect your nasal pressure or the consistency of the mucus to allow more flow. You can chew gum and start dripping, something I've used for relief many times. That's why singing can be good for people with congestion issues and we drink hot tea to loosen up our thick mucus to let it run.
