If it Hurts, Don’t do it!

If it Hurts, Don’t do it!

Let’s revisit concussion and return to play with UC Davis Head Team Physician, Dr. Jeremiah Ray. This Heartbeat was originally recorded as a Facebook LIVE for the UC Davis Health page. We first talked about concussion in May’s episode, “Breaking Out of Concussion Jail“. This Heartbeat is a little more casual and offers some practical information for how to recognize and manage concussion in athletes – plus, it provides a little spaced repetition to help us remember what we learned!

Don’t Be A Jerk

Don’t be a Jerk – Episode 8

Dr. R Nick Gorton and Dr. Kara Toles are back to talk about transgender care in the Emergency Department. Did you know you already have the skills to advocate for and care for transgender patients? You do! Let’s sum it up in four words: DON’T BE A JERK! Treat your patients like you’d want your family member to be treated. We’ll explore some of the challenges and concerns specific to transgender patients — JM Jaffe shares a very personal account of their experience. Drs. Gorton and Toles then review Nick’s recent paper on the topic and give us some practical tips to help us gracefully navigate the complexities of the gender spectrum in the ED.

LGBTQI, MD

Happy Pride, everyone! June is coming to an end and we’ve enjoyed celebrating all the diverse and beautiful people in our communities. In the spirit of Pride month, this Heartbeat explores what it’s like to be an LGBTQI physician. For those unaware, LGBTQI stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (or questioning), and intersex. Many people also add an A for asexual, or allies. Dr. Kara Toles and Dr. Nick Gorton graciously share their stories with us, as well as their advice for future doctors who may identify with any of the letters in the acronym. Dr. Gorton and Dr. Toles will also be joining us in an upcoming full episode that we are really excited about. Stay tuned!

Do you identify as LGBTQIA? We’d love to hear your story. Please send us your thoughts or experiences through our website, ucdavisem.com, or on social media, @empulsepodcast. We look forward to hearing from you!

DKA: It’s Not About the Fluids! – Episode 7

DKA: It’s Not About the Fluids! – Episode 7

Hot of the presses! We are thrilled to speak with the amazing husband and wife research team of Dr. Nate Kuppermann and Dr. Nicole Glaser, on their practice changing paper that was just, and we mean JUST, published in the New England Journal of Medicine. DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) is a potentially life threatening condition that can be complicated to treat, especially in children. First, we’ll hear from 9-year-old Whitley and her mom, Amanda, about what it’s like to be a kid living with diabetes, and what it feels like to have the dreaded DKA. Then we’ll dive into the research with Drs. Kuppermann and Glaser and learn how their findings revolutionize the way we treat DKA in kids.

How does this paper change the way you approach children with DKA in your practice? Continue the conversation on social media @empulsepodcast or at ucdavisem.com.

Catching Pee in the ED

Catching Pee in the ED

In this Heartbeat we go over two alternatives to cathing that infant in your ED.  If you had an infant who needed to be cathed, ever seen an infant cathed, or even heard a child cathed, you know it is less than fun. Here are two different, published methods that we attempted, back to back, on an infant…then we ended up doing the cath anyway!

Dr. Roger Zemek, one of the leading investigators studying concussion and return to play, discusses how recent research is changing our approach to recovery. Finally, Dr. Jeremiah Ray, a Sports Medicine and Emergency trained physician, talks about how he manages concussion in his college athletes, and gives us his recommendations for assessing and counseling patients in the ED.
