As vulnerable road users, cyclists are suffering from a disproportionate burden of crash injuries and fatalities. Road anger has been demonstrated as an important precursor of unsafe behaviors and crash-related outcomes for drivers. However, little attenti...
Authors: Ertel KA, Hallam JE, Hillman AR Abstract BACKGROUND: Individuals participating in exercise beyond their level of fitness may be at higher risk for exercise-induced muscle damage, however the impact of training status on muscle damage development is not well understood. The purpose of this study was to measure skeletal muscle damage and soreness after five days of high and low intensity exercise in previously trained and untrained individuals. METHODS: Eighteen males and females (9 trained and 9 untrained) completed five consecutive days of high intensity (HI) exercise and five consecutive days of low i...
I haven't used Stimwave since fellowship. Anyone using their technology for peripheral nerve stim? Results? Pros/Cons and feedback from patients? If I were going to use it, it would probably be for suprascapular neuralgia, genicular nerualgia, and/or SI joint pain vs cluneal neuralgia, when other options have failed (i.e. RF).
CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE: There has been a remarkable expansion of knowledge on Malassezia yeasts and their role in animal disease, particularly since the early 1990's. Malassezia dermatitis in dogs and cats has evolved from a disease of obscurity and controversy on its existence, to now being a routine diagnosis in general veterinary practice. Clinical signs are well recognised and diagnostic approaches are well developed. A range of topical and systemic therapies is known to be effective, especially when predisposing factors are identified and corrected. PMID: 31957204 [PubMed - in process]

We place two opposite conceptual views on trial: (a) the behavioral consistency view predicting that applicants should display consistent behavior patterns (honest or dishonest) across selection ...
How bad of an idea is it to be pregnant with adequate lead coverage during early months of pregnancy? I had a fellow resident who was pregnant who changed her rotations around to avoid any exposure, however it's my understanding that overall the exposure with adequate coverage is ultimately fine. I know most of you are men - not sure if there are any female pain docs who could chime in? Sigh.
Dear Dr. Ducttape, Beginning in 2020, our Board will offer its longitudinal assessment technology to diplomates of other medical specialties to maintain their Pain Medicine certification.

Our Pain Medicine-certified... New for Pain Recertification- re PMR
