Darlene's Mug ShotDuring the “Insiders” portion of Episode 142, Heather Bryans describes encephalopathy and explains why there are difficulties in correct reporting. There will be more on this topic in Episode 143.

During the live call, Ms Bryans responds to three anonymous questions. The first one is from an IRF perspective. We are not in agreement on IGC selection, please help. Secondly, she addresses a concern about reporting the Moderna blue cap booster, what’s the way to correctly report this? The final query involves repair of multiple hernias through the same incision.
