Dr Huber shared with the permission of his family member, & the work/management of this case was through his eyes, by proxy through another family member, over phone calls and text messages, complicated by the fact that the patient did not have insurance initially #NoonConference

There may not have been 525,600 #medtwitter moments, but 2018 was quite the year to learn, connect, and share the joy of practicing internal medicine and caring for patients, ourselves, and each other. Here’s our 2018 #medtwitter highlights real! 1/n
We drove, walked, ran, and biked to work (the unicycle commuter isn't a resident, alas...), even during the long winter nights, taking in the sunrise while pre-rounding or rounding 2/n
We came together to learn, with the input and involvement from each other, fellows, and faculty 3/n

#ChiefResident blog #NoonConference Dr. Eddie Maldonado's case highlighting care facets when a patient is incarcerated!…
#NoonConference #meded this was a fascinating case that touched on multiple medicolegal and social themes encountered on the wards--We were also joined by two representatives from our wonderful OHSU social work team @OHSUSOM @OHSUNews
Incarcerated patients, when admitted, have certain considerations, rules, and legal protections that we should keep in mind. Remember, implicit and explicit biases by the entire care team must be carefully considered while administering treatment for this vulnerable populartion,

It’s an #InterviewDay and R2 Francis Phan is shaking it up with #NoonConference in a different format!
(Do you remember the last time he presented when he brought tons of BP cuffs and did hands on pulsus paradoxus testing incl breathing through straws?!) Image
This is revealing itself to be an incredible systems-based and ethics case!
Don’t forget the difference between capacity and competency! Image

#ChiefResident blog #NoonConference #meded Thanks to Dr. Nelson for a non-conventional case exploring capacity and ethics! "Tips to not feeling incapacitated by capacity assessments"…
The questions were raised:
--Does this patient have capacity to make this decision?
--How does her underlying schizophrenia affect her capacity?
--What do you do when the patient’s wishes don’t align with your own or those of the patient’s family members?
this is a great @NEJM article on assessing capacity
and remember, have confidence with capacity: This is not only something we can and should assess, it is something that the primary team is BEST suited to do.…

In the age of echocardiography, it is easy to lose our pulsus paradoxus skills, but this is an important maneuver that should stay in our physical exam repertoire! #NoonConference #meded
Pulsus paradoxus is a phenomenon that was first described in 1873 by German physician Dr. Adolf Kussmaul (yes, the same Kussmaul as Kussmaul’s sign with JVP and Kussmaul breathing in DKA) #NoonConference #meded…

Immunotherapy for cancer and specifically immune check point inhibitors are being used and their side effects can be thought of as all the “itises”. Have a HIGH index of suspicion for their side effects when a patient presents with an inflammatory picture #NoonConference #meded

What a case-- jam-packed with items ripe for differential making! Petechial rash! Pancytopenia! Mediastinal Mass!…
remember “the cartoon network” or “that crazy Neukam” (@sneukam) or “totally cool Nikes” or any mnemonic for the letters “TCN” to help you remember the differential for anterior, middle and posterior mediastinal masses #medtwitter #meded #NoonConference
the paraneoplastic syndromes associated w thymic neoplasm are many and can present in myriad ways. So the lesson is, if you see a mediastinal mass and well… any other symptom!... think thymoma and it’s attendant paraneoplastic syndromes #meded #medtwitter #NoonConfernece

One way to think about the elimination of carbon dioxide is:
"won't breath" - CNS
"can't breath" - PNS, respiratory muscles, chest wall, pleura, upper airway
"can't breath enough" - lungs

A pulsus paradoxus of >10-12 mmHg has a +LR of ~3.3 and -LR of 0.03 which is the best diagnostic test we have for tamponade physiology. Here is a great @StanfordMed25 page to review how to perform a pulsus #NoonConference #meded
Things to do immediately for a pt with tamponade physiology include considering the following: hemodynamic stability (consulting the ICU), IV access, coagulation status (reversal if indicated), fluids to support preload, other consultants (cardiology/ cardiothoracic surgery)

#NoonConference #meded We discussed the utility of a D-dimer in diagnosis of aortic dissection. If < 500 ng/mL it has an excellent negative likelihood ratio (LR- 0.06) but not a good positive LR in a meta analysis
