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.

CONCLUSIONS.: Our results confirm the multidimensional nature of mania. Hyperactivity, increased speech, and thought disorder appear as core features of the clinical construct. The mood experience could be heterogeneous, depending on the co-occurrence of euphoric (elevated mood) and dysphoric (irritability and depressive mood) emotions of varying intensity. Results are also discussed regarding their relationship with other constitutive elements of bipolar disorder, such as mixed and depressive states. PMID: 32093802 [PubMed - in process]

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.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is present in at least 2% of women and 4% of men, and its prevalence is increasing, because a major predisposing factor for OSA is a high body mass index. Psoriasis has the most strongly substantiated link with OSA, where the relationship may be bidirectional. Dermatologic disorders may be comorbid with OSA due to several factors: (i) the heightened proinflammatory state in OSA, which can occur independent of body mass index, and may exacerbate inflammatory dermatoses; (ii) intermittent hypoxemia may promote neovascularization and tumor growth in certain cancers, such as melanoma; (iii) obesit...

Discussion Regurgitation is a passive expulsion of ingested material out of the mouth. It is a normal part of digestion for ruminants such as cows and camels. Nausea is an unpleasant abdominal perception that the person may describe as feeling ill to the stomach, or feeling like he/she is going to vomit. Anorexia is frequently observed. Nausea is usually associated with decreased stomach activity and motility in the small intestine. Parasympathetic activity may be increased causing pale skin, sweating, hypersalivation and possible vasovagal syndrome (hypotension and bradycardia). Retching or dry heaves is when there are sp...
