We present a rare case of hemichorea associated with a hemorrhagic stroke in the contralateral striatum.
We describe the clinical practice of EKG testing in a 720-bed facility in the Bronx, NY.
Heart failure (HF) is a leading cause of mortality and hospital readmissions in the United States. A large proportion of these patients are readmitted from skilled nursing facilities (SNF). The implementation of quality initiatives, such as staff education, to recognize early measures of clinical instability could improve HF management at these facilities.
The geriatric population is at high risk of severe low blood glucose (LBG) events due to diminished homeostatic mechanisms, especially on hypoglycemic medications. Moderate to severe LBG events in these patients can contribute to behavior changes such as agitation, change in level of consciousness, disruption of sleep, instability and increased risk of myocardial infarction, stroke and falls. Rapid recognition and appropriate treatment and prevention of LBG and recurrences can reduce risk for hospitalization in the geriatric population.

Authors: Medeiros MC, Rocha N, Bandeira E, Dantas I, Chaves C, Oliveira M, Bandeira F Abstract Sclerostin (Scl) is an osteoblast-inhibiting glycoprotein that is secreted mainly by osteocytes and is regulated by hormonal changes and skeletal loading. Decreased physical function and high serum Scl concentrations have been reported in chronic renal failure patients but little is known to date about the differences between diabetic and non-diabetic patients on hemodialysis who are susceptible to both sarcopenia and bone fragility. Objective.To determine the prevalence of sarcopenia and its association with serum Scl co...
We thank Dr Reiffel for his interest in our case description1 and his comments. Indeed, the presence of precordial T-wave inversions in the setting of pulmonary embolism has been described periodically in the literature. The cases described by Dr Reiffel supplement the cases we referenced in our report to reinforce this point. Two theories are often cited as an explanation for this finding. The first is heightened sympathetic tone caused by an autonomic nervous system –mediated response triggered by acute pulmonary embolism.
