The Price of Beauty

Heartbeat: The Price of Beauty

As Emergency Physicians, we pride ourselves on recognizing and treating life-threatening conditions. But what if we’re missing important diagnoses and we don’t even know it? In this Heartbeat, we explore acute and chronic silicone syndromes, two potentially serious conditions caused by injecting liquid silicone into the body. Dr. Nick Gorton, previously featured on Episode 8: Don’t be a Jerk! and the LGBTQI, MD Heartbeat, joins us again with advice on how to diagnose and manage these conditions that predominantly affect women, especially transgender women. 

Are these diagnoses new to you? Have you seen and treated either of these conditions? Let’s continue the conversation on social media @empulsepodcast or at ucdavisem.com.

Don’t Be A Jerk – Episode 8

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. 

How does your department (or residency, med school, etc.) address the topic of transgender care? Join the conversation on social media, @empulsepodcast, or at ucdavisem.com.

LGBTQI, MD

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!
