By RICHARD HOEHN, MD Experts claim we could have been better prepared when the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020. With an annual budget of $400-700 million, the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) is designed to respond to chemical, biological, and other disasters. Its $8 billion inventory included 13,000 ventilators and a limited supply of personal protective equipment, N95 masks, and medical supplies. This left state and local governments scrambling as the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated and the capacity of many hospitals was overwhelmed. Faced with immediate and visible death and suffering, leaders took drastic...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAdvances in preservation and transplantation techniques have made renal autotransplantation (RA) a modality that can be utilized in complex renovascular diseases (renal artery aneurysms), high ureteric injuries, chronic kidney pain, as well as conventionally unresectable renal tumours. In the current review, we present the Oxford experience, the only UK commissioned centre to perform RA for complex renal cell cancers, and review the published RA experience from other UK centres.Recent FindingsThe evidence and literature generated from the RA experience in the UK are largely limited to case reports....

A man who was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) five years ago sees his rheumatologist for a follow-up visit. Fortunately, his arthritis is well controlled through medication. He can walk and do all his daily activities without pain. But over the past six months, he’s been feeling short of breath when climbing stairs. He has an annoying dry cough, too. COVID-19? That’s ruled out quickly. But a CT scan of his chest reveals early fibrosis (scarring) of the lungs, most likely related to rheumatoid arthritis. “I can finally walk normally, and now I can’t breathe when I walk!” says the frust...

Over $50 billion is spent on elderly patients with chronic kidney disease in the United States; with 1.5 times higher incidence of end stage renal disease (ESRD) in Asian Americans compared to Caucasians, there is a dire need to improve self-care and symptom management studies for this population. ESRD patients typically have a very short life expectancy and do not qualify for hospice benefits while they remain on dialysis or transplant lists. There are calls to strengthen palliative care for ESRD patients to help decrease distressing symptoms.
