Our job is to work with people with multiple disorders and to help educate them about the need for sleep and how sleep apnea affects the body. But are we really only teaching about apnea? I would tend to say no. Our audience in the lab may be limited but I have learned when teaching about sleep that hygiene, parasomnias and ...
know aging is a part of life and in many regards, aging is quite fabulous. I
mean, does anyone really want to go back to their high school days? Pimples,
bus stops, getting teased for the outfits we were wearing. I know I personally
would be happy if I never had to look at (or hear about) a yearbook again.
A 54-year-old male
presents for a total body mole check and reports hair loss for 6 months. The
patient says, ''I don't care about the hair loss, I am here to have my moles
checked for cancer. I'm going to buzz my hair anyway.''
After completing the
total body mole exam, I explained the condition on his scalp - alopecia ...
Students: You'll learn there are good preceptors,

I had my first jaw dropping patient last week. You know, working
in cardiology, you see a lot of the same thing. Acute coronary syndrome, atrial
fib, heart failure...Turn 'em and burn 'em, that's my motto. Thursday, I had my
first patient that I was completely side-bombed over.
That day, an 86-year-old female presented to the ED for ...
Have you noticed that we live in a dehydrated world full of
carbonated beverages, caffeine and alcohol? I know people who consume multiple
sodas, juices and coffees a day. But what about water? Drinking adequate
amounts of water daily is important for overall good health because water aids
in digestion, circulation, absorption and even ...
There are several presentations for patients who have or believe they have ''bugs'' in or on their skin. There are the haves, have nots and the ''I know I have it and I brought proof but have nots.'' The haves are easy to diagnose. The most common of these are lice, scabies, ticks, bed bugs and the occasional erythema migracans.
The have nots ...
Whether you currently have acne or have suffered from
acne in the past, one thing we know for sure is that acne changes our
skin. This includes dark spots, red spots and indentations that remain
well after acne lesions have cleared. Exactly how this is treated is a
common concern of patients. Whether you work in internal ...
As the universities and secondary schools are
preparing for spring break, it is important that we are educated and educate
our young patients on the dangers of ultraviolet exposure. I am going to focus
this blog more specifically towards the use of tanning beds.
As a dermatology specialist and a parent, I find it
unconscionable that ...
