  • Are You an Apnea Tech or a Sleep Tech?

    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 ...

  • Immediate and Real Results with Radiesse

    We all 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. While emotionally and ...

  • Alopecia Areata

    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 ...

  • When Kids Get Cancer

    Students: You'll learn there are good preceptors, bad preceptors and then there are physicians who inspire, often because of a single incident. Last weekend I was inspired. I am on inpatient pediatrics and late Saturday afternoon we learned about a little baby whose white blood cell count was high and the pediatrician had sent this baby ...

  • Skincare on a Budget

    Quality skincare does not have to come at a steep price. If you splurge in some important areas (that benefit you the most) you may need to skimp a little in other departments and that is okay. Let's call this skincare on a budget, if you will.  SKIMP: Face Wash: Don't get me wrong. I love high end, fancy foaming, ...

  • Heart-Wrenching Heart Patient

    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 ...

  • Quench Your Skin with H20

    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 ...

  • I’ve Got Bugs

    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 ...

  • Treating Acne Aftermath

    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 ...

  • Spring Breakers Beware

    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 ...
