Urgent Care RAP - WDIDN? Killing a Fly With a Cannonball!
Mike Weinstock, MD and Mizuho Spangler, DO discuss fingernail pathologies, management of paronychia and risks for aggressive antibiotic usage in outpatient settings.
Fingertip lesions can be isolated injuries or evidence of more serious, systemic processes.
Radiographs of fingertips are useful if there is a concern for a retained foreign body, underlying fracture or deep-space infection like osteomyelitis.
It is important to remember that nothing we do in medicine, including writing prescriptions and admitting patients to the hospital, is without risk, and we need to consider these risks in determining the right course of action for our patients.

Love this stuff
Relevant, fun, and convenient
I absolutely love this podcast. I learn so much from it every month, but I also search the archives when I want extra help with a topic on my mind. And not only is it not dry – it's super enjoyable. Also it's great to be able to get this calibre of broad ongoing education while washing dishes, driving, or taking a walk!
I really enjoyed the content and presenters.
