The red eye.  Could be something, could be nothing…but everyone gets sent home from work or school.  Conjunctivitis is a condition that is actually really easy to see the differences once you know what you are looking for (get it).  This episode we will break down the different types of conjunctivitis, the causes, the symptoms, and the treatment of one of the more common ocular conditions you will see in clinical practice.

In this episode, I have Wes Johnson, PA-C, (soon to be) DHSc, and former RT, on the show to discuss the basics of the ventilator.  We talk about modes, delivery, PEEP, and everything you need to know about setting up a patient on the vent

Peptic Ulcer Disease is a condition I think gets thrown around a lot, both in the medical and non-medical worlds, so I figured we would tackle this disease for the October GI podcast.

This is the Student Spotlight Series of the PAINE Podcast. The purpose of these interviews is to give prospective students (and current students) a glimpse into the mind of a PA student. I ask a standard set of 10 questions to dive into what drove them into the medical profession, why they choose to be PA, what surprised them about PA school, and tips/pearls/strategies on how to be a successful PA student.

A few weeks back I had received an email from one of my former students (and previous Student Spotlight guest, Taylor Stefaniak) about electrolyte questions that have come up in the clinical year.  Since my first a publication that made me a published author was on clinical management of electrolytes, I thought this would be a good topic for the podcast.  So we will tackle a few of these questions now, and most likely revisit this from time to time as it can be difficult for clinical students.

I have been racking my brain trying to figure out how to breakdown musculoskeletal topics because tackling something like “hip pain” can be very tedious and doesn’t lend itself well to the podcasting medium.  So I thought what I would do for MSK topics is put it into joints and do multiple parts over the years to cover all the conditions you need to know.  So for this episode, we will be hitting Hip Disorders, specifically talking about avascular necrosis and slipped capital femoral epiphysis.

This episodes is a dry run of a talk I will be given at the 2017 TAPA Fall Fest.  It is also the talk I gave at the 2015 AAPA conference on "Evidence Based Approach to PTE".  We will cover the signs and symptoms, clinical decision instruments, work-up, risk assessment, severity classifications, and treatment of PTE.

This installment we are covering small bowel obstruction since it is surgery month on the PAINE Podcast.  This is a short and sweet episode on one of the more common reasons for surgical consultation in clinical practice.

Ok…I admit.  This episode is low hanging fruit.  But to be fair, I did cover “Approach to Sore Throat in Children” last year because it is so common in pediatric practice.  Acute Otitis Media (AOM) rounds out the other “most common” condition to give you a big chunk of outpatient and emergency medicine reasons for a pediatric visit.  We will cover everything you ever wanted to know about AOM, including the indications for tympanostomy tube placement.

The guest expert for this episode is Michelle Brown, Assistant Professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Clinical Laboratory Science Program.

 

Transfusion medicine is unique aspect of medicine that pretty much all subspecialties will interact with in the inpatient setting at some point.  Today we will be discussing what products are available for transfusion, the indications and contraindications of transfusion, what the current guidelines recommend, and some of the behind the scenes considerations from our friends in the bloodbank and lab.

With more and more people getting diagnosed with cancer earlier and earlier, the chances you will treat a patient who is receiving, or has had, chemotherapy are increasing. CDC estimates ~650,000 patients per year receive outpatient chemotherapy.  Since chemotherapy is designed to kill rogue cancer cells (some by sniper, some by nuke), you are bound to have some collateral damage.  Today, we are joined by Chip Lange, of TOTAL EM, again to discuss side effects and complications of chemotherapy that you may see in your clinic or emergency department.

Menorrhagia…metrorrhagia….menometrorrhagia.  These words can strike fear into the hearts of men….or the uteri of women.

 

Some of you may know what these mean….some of you may have no idea.  These are old and busted terms used to described dysfunction uterine bleeding (which is also is old and busted), but I have found still permeates throughout the non-OB/GYN subspecialties. For this episode, we will cover the definition and classifications of abnormal uterine bleeding as defined by the Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) systems.  We will most likely cover work-up and management in a subsequent episode.

For this episode, we will discuss everything you need to know about pericardial effusions and cardiac tamponade.  One can be slowly progressive condition and the other can kill you.  The trick is to know what can cause them, the presenting signs and symptoms, the diagnostic studies to see them, and the management of pericardial fluid problems.
