    Urgent Care’s are well suited to provide care to patients presenting with work related injuries. The delivery of care for these patients does not differ in terms of diagnosis, examination, and treatment for such injuries. No specific accreditation is required to care for this patient population, but an understanding of how to properly chart the patient encounter for these patients is essential to improving the quality and work flow of the care provided for these patients. Join Andy Barnett, MD and Matthieu DeClerck, MD for a look into caring for patients with work related injuries.

    SVT and the REVERT Trial

    SVT and the REVERT Trial

    We all remember years ago when we took ACLS for the first time, once we got to the section on SVT, they would always say that we should “try vagal maneuvers” before moving to chemical conversion. Today we are going to review diagnosing SVT and re-examine all of the modalities available to those who see these patients present to the ED and Urgent Care.

    Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is a common tachydysrhythmia in young, otherwise healthy patients and can present in any acute care setting.  Drs. Little and Kalnow from the EM Over Easy Podcast (https://emovereasy.com/) sit down with Mizuho to discuss the diagnosis and management of SVT.

    VAPI: Vaping Associated Pulmonary Injury

    VAPI: Vaping Associated Pulmonary Injury

    Given the recent spike of VAPI (vaping associated pulmonary injury) cases, our HIPPO medical editorial team review the clinical presentation and latest management recommendations for this lung disease. Mizuho Morrison and Sol Behar discuss a recent case, and review the hot-off-the-press published CDC health alert. Take a listen!

    Pearls:
    There has been a recent explosion in vape associated pulmonary injury, with serious morbidity and mortality.
    VAPI has been more commonly associated with THC-containing products ,although a wide variety of nicotine containing products and devices have been reported.
    Symptoms: 
    Constitutional symptoms (100%)
    Respiratory distress and cough (98%)
    GI symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea (80%)
    Fever (30%)
    Diagnosis: Vaping in past 90 days, bilateral pulmonary infiltrates on imaging, Ground-glass appearance noted on CT chest. Absence of detectable bacterial/viral infection. 
    Treatment: 
    Respiratory support
    Steroids may be beneficial
    Antibiotics alone do not appear to help as this is not an infectious process, rather an inflammatory one. However given initial mixed presentation, it is not unreasonable to initiate antibiotics until pneumonia is ruled out and diagnosis is confirmed.
