There is a coude cath!! It’s used for men with prostate inflammation when a reg cath cant be anchored.
Michał Płaczek (2 months ago)
Publishing medical related content requires some knowledge and responsibility as false claims may cause harmful consequences. Thus it is quite disappointing to see your claims regarding coude catheters. The 1957 hoax was not a question of the mere invention but dr. Coude himself, as such individual never existed. "Coude" is a French term for elbow and was used in regards to the shape of the catheter itself. Claims that coude catheters are fraudulent invention, that they are "extremely painful to use" and that many medical professionals are ignorant of these facts is untrue and proves poor research. Maybe just once you should use actual books, not dubious internet sources?
Jeffrey Schweitzer (2 months ago)
Coude just means elbow in French and is a description of the shape. These are very much real as even a cursory search will show. The hoax was just a prank we all used to play on medical students. Straight catheters are called Foley catheters, names for a Dr Foley, so the prank was asking students to tell us whom the Coude catheter was named for, to see how many would say “Dr Coude.”

Ecuadorian here. The Vilcabamba hoax was never meant to be one. It was originally a very tongue-in-cheek tall tale to attract tourists and sell stuff from the place, but since there are always idiots who take everything too seriously, it was blown out of proportion. In the height of the "hoax" several news crews actually traveled and did reports on the place putting all the rumors to rest once and for all; although a few gullible types still peddle the tale, it is not taken seriously anymore.

#6 _"Coude"_ (sorry; don't know how to add an _accent aigu_ on a U.S. keyboard) is French for "bent like an elbow." and would be pronounced something like, "koo-DAY." It's not someone's name. According to _Dorland's Illustrated Medical Dictionary,_ Twenty-sixth Edition, W. B. Saunders Company, 1985, it is another name for an elbowed catheter, which is defined as "one with a sharp bend near the beak; used principally in cases of enlarged prostate."

I was living in Springfield MO when the Gypsy Blanchard case happened. It was horrifying. It's worth noting with that case that it was an easy 1st degree murder charge, which would have been life. The prosecutor agreed to a plea deal for minimum time on 2nd degree, because he has some humanity apparently.

A little nit pick, Munchausen Syndrome is when you pretend to be sick for attention/money. If a parent does it to a child it is Munchausen-by-proxy.

but the coude catheter does work but not exactly how they initially invented it. only the very tip of the catheter is denser rubber and bent so it can go around obstuctions.
Patricia Alexander (2 months ago)
I believe ADHD and other similar cases are all due to lazy parenting, now it’s Autism it does exist because I’ve seen it and it quite distressing but now governments have made up a broad spectrum theme and now everyone has it! Once again much is lazy or bad parenting s it’s the modern day excuse for kids who are out of control The parents just say ‘oh, he has Autism’ In a smug tone when little Noah has strangled the neighbours cat It must be costing the government much the same as our sponging asylum seekers’.

As a practising urologist, I have to call you out on the Coude catheter. The name being eponymous is a hoax though - it's French for elbow. Very helpful for getting past enlarged prostates and for other reasons. I'd be surprised if I use less than 100 per year.

I'm a RN, we use coudae caths all the time (they are no hoax). They have a slight bend at the end and come to more of a point (as opposed to a regular foley that has a blunt end). They are used on mostly male patients when a foley won't pass, fo example, an enlarged prostate. Also, the male urethra makes a sharp bend before the bladder and the coudae cath passes easier.

In the UK given Gypsies age and what she had been through it is possible she would have been sent to a secure psychiatric unit for evaluation then received a "licence". IE monitored by the police in public. There is potentially a case for extenuating circumstances and diminished responsibility.
Maria Kelly (2 months ago)
I also noticed that Simon got the diagnosis a little bit wrong. There are 2 types of Munchausen's Syndrome. Munchausen's is when a person fakes illnesses to get attention from other people. Munchausen's By Proxy is when someone deliberately makes their child physically ill. The person then gets praise from everyone around them for giving up their life to care for the sick child.

There are lots of victims of serious Munchausen by Proxy,Child Abuse, Sexual abuse and other cruelties but that doesn't mean they contort a twisted plot to kill their abuser! All Gypsy needed to do was walk right into a police station...her walking alone would've gave it away! Instead she was too busy sexually role playing,having sex in movie theater mens room's, on her mother bed and then her writing those horrible Facebook posts! First she said she wasn't involved at all,then she was a little bit,then not all.."Daddy don't believe anything of the awful things they say about me on the news none of it's true". ..and it was! It's not that I don't have sympathy for her..I do but I also see the dangerous side of her! I see another Dee Dee!

I am going to start off with saying I am NOT an anti-vaxxer, my son has had all of his vaccinations and I don't tell people not to get them.  I do however find it somewhat alarming just how quick people are to have you sacrifice your child's health or worse for them to believe in herd immunity.  Many of these people say something like "parents that don't get their kids vaccinated should be put in jail" and are perfectly happy knowing that even if it's a 1 in a million chance of a kid dyeing from the vaccine that means if every child in the world was vaccinated then statistically 1900 children will die from it. I would feel better about putting a member of the vaccine company's top brass in jail for every kid that has a major complication from getting the vaccine before jailing the parents.  Gone are the days of just blindly believing in what doctors, big pharma, politicians, the news etc. tells you.  People need to do their research and educate theirselves on the risks before they do whet ever.  I say this from experience.  My son has many non-vaccine related medical problems that me blindly following the doctor's bad (but well meaning) advice have inadvertently made worse.  I can tell you that it is hard to live with yourself knowing you have made your sons health/life worse, even if it was an innocent mistake.
