The Effects Of Moderate-Severe Plaque Psoriasis On Patient Well-Being And Prevention Of Flares, Glenn Devera 2020 Dominican University of California

The Effects Of Moderate-Severe Plaque Psoriasis On Patient Well-Being And Prevention Of Flares, Glenn Devera

Nursing | Senior Theses

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that is indicated by red, patchy and scaly skin that can be painful when irritated. Patients with psoriasis have an increased risk for a number of chronic diseases. Despite the expansion of treatments for moderate-to-severe psoriasis over the last decade, patients may still find that treatment strategies are not as successful, leaving them dissatisfied with their treatments. A relationship built upon trust between the nurse and the patient diagnosed with psoriasis may serve to help ensure optimal care. A comprehensive literature review was performed and found that best practices for patient management need to ...

Reading Room Assistance Pilot: Improving Radiologist Workflow, Michael Hoy, Md, Christopher G. Roth, Md, Ms-Hqs, Rashmi Balasubramanya, Md

House Staff Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Conference (2020-)

Aims for Improvement

Our aim for improvement was to find ways to decrease distractions and phone calls in the body radiology reading room and to convert unpredictable and “immediate-response distractions” to “managed distractions” that can be addressed without aborting patient care/case interpretation immediately and unnecessarily. The goal was to decrease interruptions which would allow more time to be spent on reading cases, learning, and teaching. One metric that we identified was the number of phone calls to the reading room, which we intend to decrease by 50% within the first quarter. Another metric was the radiology attending and resident ...

Successful Non-Surgical Management Of Acute, Uncomplicated Appendicitis In Pregnancy: A Case Report, Avanthi Ajjarapu, Nina N. Moreira

Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Acute appendicitis during pregnancy is one of the most common non-obstetric indications for surgery during pregnancy. Prompt surgical intervention for appendicitis is considered the standard of care. However, data on the utility of surgical management of uncomplicated cases of appendicitis is inconclusive and effectiveness of non-surgical management is currently understudied. We present a case that provides evidence for successful, antibiotic management of uncomplicated appendicitis as a means to reduce the burden of surgical complications on the pregnant population. This article also offers a critical analysis of current standard of care and assesses feasibility of nonsurgical management of acute, uncomplicated appendicitis ...

Ultrasound has developed as an invaluable tool in diagnosis and proper management in the intensive care unit (ICU). Application of critical care ultrasonography is quite distinct from the routine comprehensive diagnostic ultrasound exam, because the urgent setting mandates a goal-directed approach. Performing accurate and efficient critical care ultrasound requires ultrasound providers to first understand the pathophysiology of the disease and related imaging findings, and then follow the protocols to perform a focused ultrasound exam. In the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, ultrasound plays an essential role in diagnosing and monitoring critically ill COVID-19 patients in the ICU. Our review ...

Osteoblastoma In The Occipital Bone: A Case Report Of A Rare Tumor In The Calvarium, Lukas M. Trunz, Scott H. Faro, Richard J. Gorniak 2020 Thomas Jefferson University

Osteoblastoma In The Occipital Bone: A Case Report Of A Rare Tumor In The Calvarium, Lukas M. Trunz, Scott H. Faro, Richard J. Gorniak

Department of Radiology Faculty Papers

Osteoblastomas infrequently occur in the calvarium, displaying a preference for temporal and frontal bones when it does. We present an unusual case of a large, expansile osteoblastoma in the occipital bone of a 23-year-old man who presented with a nontender lump at the back of his head. Initial computed tomography scan showed a large occipital bone mass, and after additional imaging, a gross total resection was performed. Histopathological examination revealed an osteoblastoma. Although these tumors are benign, overlapping imaging characteristics of lesions affecting the calvarium often present a diagnostic dilemma. This case emphasizes the importance of imaging in the management ...
