Day Trip to Johor Bahru

Had an early start today. Cought a glimpse of the football score before leaving for KLIA. Damn Liverpool leading Real Madrid 3-0. It ended up 4 nil. They are playing United this weekend, and for sure they will get a stuffing. Left for KLIA finally at around 5.30.

Took slightly longer than expected on the empty morning traffic, taking an whole hour. Finally settled in and waited for Zack. He had made an online check-in last night and bringing over the printed boarding pass. Boarded the flight for 7.25. Luckily so as we found out later on that the 10ish flight was cancelled. Seems to be a regular occurrence on MAS now in their plan to cut operating cost. Reached Senai Airport a little after 8.15 and went ahead to have breakfast.

Found out that Dato' Chang was around to do his hospital visit. The CME started around 1.15, with only 20 MOs attending. Chang pointed out that the attendance could have been better with more support from hospital management. Reminds me of my previous talk in Hospital Melaka where around 60 people attended. Rushed to the airport to make the 3.50 flight, in time to hit the KL rush hour on the drive back home.

In the lecture, I touched on definition of febrile neutropenia and approach on the empirical management when it comes to initiating antimicrobials. Went through the IDSA guideline, then pointed the resistance pattern in UMMC. The Q&A was interesting, but hopefully the message was clear enough.
