Formerly obese, now thin and confused: the utility of mnemonics in the approach to altered mental status.
Am. J. Med. Sci.
PUBLISHED: 04-17-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
: Altered mental status represents a common cause for admission to general medicine services. Often a significant workup ensues to define an underlying etiology. When a history of bariatric surgery with small bowel resection precedes the presentation, the differential diagnosis expands. We review a patient, having prior bariatric surgery and small bowel resection, who presents with altered mental status. After an extensive workup, she was diagnosed with a rare clinical problem, D-lactic acidosis. In presenting this case, we examine the use of mnemonics in medicine and how this can assist in solving clinical problems.

Retainer medicine: an ethically legitimate form of practice that can improve primary care.
Ann. Intern. Med.
PUBLISHED: 11-02-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Retainer medicine has become an important yet controversial form of primary care practice in the United States, coming under attack for its purported failure to measure up to professional ethics. Critics opine that retainer medicine obstructs professional commitments to health care access and social justice. Some ethicists urge that society should restrict or ban retainer medicine; professional organizations have yet to take a stand. The authors believe that retainer medicine is compatible with professional ethics and will more likely aid in solving the difficulties facing primary care rather than add to them. Although professional ethics should evolve to address new conditions, a condemnation of retainer medicine is warranted neither by traditional ethical precepts nor by contemporary developments in medical ethics. Any move to sanction retainer medicine under the banner of professionalism or professional ethics will be counterproductive. The primary care shortage will only get worse if physicians in retainer practice leave primary care altogether, a likely outcome of legal or professional condemnation of retainer practice.

Tried and true: a survey of successfully promoted academic hospitalists.
J Hosp Med
PUBLISHED: 09-15-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Academic hospital medicine is a new and rapidly growing field. Hospitalist faculty members often fill roles not typically held by other academic faculty, maintain heavy clinical workloads, and participate in nontraditional activities. Because of these differences, there is concern about how academic hospitalists may fare in the promotions process.

Fusobacterium necrophorum bacteremic tonsillitis: 2 Cases and a review of the literature.
Anaerobe
PUBLISHED: 04-02-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Fusobacterium necrophorum can cause endemic pharyngitis and the Lemierre syndrome. Four previous case reports and one epidemiologic study have documented that some F. necrophorum pharyngitis patients develop bacteremia without developing the complete Lemierre syndrome. We report two more patients who have bacteremic F. necrophorum pharyngitis. We summarize the clinical presentation of these six patients. All received early diagnosis and excellent response to antibiotics. We speculate that prompt antibiotic treatment may have prevented the more serious Lemierre syndrome. Adolescents and young adults who present with significant pharyngotonsillitis and bacteremic symptoms should have blood cultures and receive antibiotic regimens that treat F. necrophorum. Recognition of such patients might prevent Lemierre syndrome.

Hypercalcemia and acute renal failure in milk-alkali syndrome: a case report.
J Hosp Med
PUBLISHED: 01-28-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Historically, the milk-alkali syndrome developed as an adverse reaction to the Sippy regimen of milk, cream and alkaline powders as treatment for peptic ulcer disease. The classic description includes hypercalcemia, metabolic alkalosis, and renal failure. Over the past 20 years, milk-alkali syndrome has had a resurgence, as consumption of supplements containing calcium has increased. A 46-year-old man presented to the emergency department after outpatient labs to evaluate his fatigue. He was found to have acute renal failure and hypercalcemia (total serum calcium was 15.9 mg/dL). Subsequent laboratory evaluation excluded both hyperparathyroidism and malignancy as causes. A detailed history led to the diagnosis of milk-alkali syndrome. With hydration and cessation of calcium carbonate ingestion, his renal function and serum calcium levels returned to normal. Physicians should have a high index of suspicion for milk-alkali syndrome in patients with hypercalcemia. Milk-alkali syndrome is no longer a merely a historical curiosity; it is currently the third most common cause of hypercalcemia.

Expand the pharyngitis paradigm for adolescents and young adults.
Ann. Intern. Med.
PUBLISHED: 12-02-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Current guidelines and review articles emphasize that clinicians should consider group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus in the diagnosis and management of patients with acute pharyngitis. Recent data suggest that in adolescents and young adults (persons aged 15 to 24 years), Fusobacterium necrophorum causes endemic pharyngitis at a rate similar to that of group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus. On the basis of published epidemiologic data, F. necrophorum is estimated to cause the Lemierre syndrome-a life-threatening suppurative complication-at a higher incidence than that at which group A streptococcus causes acute rheumatic fever. Moreover, these estimates suggest greater morbidity and mortality from the Lemierre syndrome. The diagnostic paradigm for adolescent pharyngitis should therefore be expanded to consider F. necrophorum in addition to group A streptococcus. Expanding the pharyngitis paradigm will have several important implications. Further epidemiologic research is needed on both F. necrophorum pharyngitis (especially clinical presentation) and the Lemierre syndrome. Clinicians need reliable diagnostic techniques for F. necrophorum pharyngitis. In the meantime, adolescents and young adults who develop bacteremic symptoms should be aggressively treated with antibiotics for F. necrophorum infection. Physicians should avoid macrolides if they choose to treat streptococcus-negative pharyngitis empirically. Finally, pediatricians, internists, family physicians, and emergency department physicians should know the red flags for adolescent and young adult pharyngitis: worsening symptoms or neck swelling (especially unilateral neck swelling). Adolescent and young adult pharyngitis is more complicated than previously considered.

Peritonsilar abscess requiring intensive care unit admission caused by group C and G Streptococcus: a case report.
Cases J
PUBLISHED: 04-23-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Acute adult pharyngitis is a common reason to visit the primary care physicians office. Without knowledge of the natural course of acute pharyngitis in the adult patient, it can be easy to miss a serious complication. We offer the case of a 46 year-old man who initially presented with acute pharyngitis and eventually developed a peritonsillar abscess requiring intubation and intensive care unit admission. We hope to further clarify the normal natural history of adult pharyngitis and suggest clinical guidelines in the event of worsening pharyngitis.

Ward attending rounds are an integral part of internal medicine education. Being a good teacher is necessary, but not sufficient for successful rounds. Understanding perceptions of successful attending rounds (AR) may help define key areas of focus for enhancing learning, teaching and patient care.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
