Emergency Health Care Professionals' Understanding of the Costs of Care in the Emergency Department.
Authors: Hoffman KA, Mancini M Abstract Background: Efficiency and fiscal responsibility are important to the equal, safe, and effective delivery of care in the emergency department, where all presenting patients must be evaluated for emergent conditions. Health care professionals' understanding of the costs of care is a first step to developing rational approaches for the efficient distribution of the finite resources hospitals and emergency departments have at their disposal to reduce costs to patients and health care systems. Objective: To determine emergency department health care professionals' knowledge o...

Mood disorders are often comorbid in patients with migraine and are known to adversely affect migraine activity. Objectives: To explore the effects of osteopathic manipulative therapy (OMTh; manipulative care provided by foreign-trained osteopaths) on pain and mood disorders in patients with high-frequency migraine. Methods: Retrospective review of the medical records of patients with high-frequency migraine who were treated with OMTh a...

One Health: Children, Waterfowl, and Lead Exposure in Northwestern Nigeria.
Authors: Edwards JR, Fossum TW, Nichols KJ, Noah DL, Tarpley RJ, Prozialeck WC Abstract The One Health concept focuses on the interrelationship between the health of humans, animals, and the environment. There is a delicate balance among these relationships, and when an imbalance exists, the effects can be catastrophic. Such an imbalance occurred in 2010, when elevated lead exposure in rural communities in northwestern Nigeria resulted in the deaths of an estimated 400 children younger than 5 years in a 12-month period. Before the children became ill, waterfowl began to die in great numbers, a connection that would...

Bridging the Gap: An Osteopathic Primary Care-Centered Approach to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Authors: Carls C, Krajacic P Abstract Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a deadly and incurable disease typically diagnosed in early childhood. Presently, the delay between a caregiver's initial concern and the primary care physician obtaining creatine kinase levels-the most important screening test-is more than a year. It is imperative to diagnose DMD as soon as possible because early treatment has the potential to double the patient's lifespan. In addition, because of geographic and economic disadvantages, multidisciplinary DMD treatment centers are not readily available to all patients. Therefore, the challeng...

Osteopathic Medical Students Entering Family Medicine and Attitudes Regarding Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment: Preliminary Findings of Differences by Sex.
Authors: Baker HH, Linsenmeyer M, Ridpath LC, Bauer LJ, Foster RW Abstract Context: Factors distinguishing osteopathic physicians from their allopathic counterparts include the use of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), application of osteopathic principles and practice (OPP), and a greater likelihood of entering primary care, specifically family medicine (FM). In the United States, the percentage of entering osteopathic medical students who were female rose from 14.3% in fall 1977 to 44.3% in fall 2015. Objectives: To investigate the perspectives of female osteopathic medical students as they relate to o...

Therapeutic Hypothermia to Treat a Newborn With Perinatal Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy.
Authors: Fredricks TR, Gibson C, Essien F, Benseler JS Abstract Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy is caused by neonatal asphyxia and can lead to mortality or long-term neurodevelopmental morbidity in neonates. Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) is one of the few effective ways to manage mitigating neurologic sequelae. The authors describe the case of a neonate who had a perinatal hypoxic insult and sustained no long-term sequelae after being treated with TH. It is important that osteopathic physicians who provide obstetric and gynecologic, perinatal, and emergency medical care are able to recognize a perinatal hypoxic even...

Use of the Fascial Distortion Model to Evaluate a Limp in a Child.
Authors: James SJ, Hudnall J Abstract Pediatric limp is a relatively common condition in primary care and can be challenging to diagnose and manage. Common causes of painful pediatric limp include transient synovitis, septic arthritis, osteomyelitis, and trauma. The authors present the case of an 11-year-old girl with a painful limp and anterior ankle pain of unclear origin. Osteopathic structural examination revealed a somatic dysfunction known as continuum distortion, 1 of 6 fascial alterations identified in the fascial distortion model. Myofascial release was applied, providing rapid, complete resolution of symp...

Introducing High School Students to Careers in Osteopathic Medicine.
Authors: Wilson NF Abstract An aging population and expansion of health care coverage under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act have led to a predicted deficit of primary care physicians by 2025. In response, medical schools must develop new strategies to identify students early in their educational pathways to encourage exploration of careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, especially medicine. Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences developed 2 internship programs, Oklahoma Science Training and Research Students (OKStars) and Native OKStars, to introduce...

Vitamin D Deficiency, Its Role in Health and Disease, and Current Supplementation Recommendations.
Authors: Pfotenhauer KM, Shubrook JH Abstract Vitamin D deficiency has been identified as a common metabolic/endocrine abnormality. Despite known dietary sources of vitamin D and the role of sunlight in its production, much of the US population may have inadequate levels of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D. Deficiency of vitamin D can be caused by a variety of health conditions, but studies on the effects of vitamin D supplements have had mixed results. This evidence-based clinical review discusses what is currently known about vitamin D and what areas need further research to clarify its role in health and disease. P...

Attitudes of Family Medicine Program Directors Toward Osteopathic Residents Under the Single Accreditation System.
CONCLUSION: Directors of AOA/ACGME programs, as well as those whose programs have an osteopathic focus in curricular offerings, were more likely to rank the academic preparation of osteopathic residents higher than directors of ACGME-only programs and those without OMT curricula. Further research is needed to determine the value of osteopathic recognition in attracting strong family medicine residency candidates.

Residency Program Directors' Interview Methods and Satisfaction With Resident Selection Across Multiple Specialties.
CONCLUSION: The perceived success of an osteopathic residency program's interview process does not appear to be related to methods used and is not distinctively different from that of programs dually accredited. The findings suggest that it may not be realistic to aim for standardization of a common set of best interview methods or ideal personal characteristics for all programs. Each residency program's optimal interview process is likely unique, more dependent on analyzing why some resident selections are regretted and developing an interview process designed to assess for specific desirable and unwanted characteristics....
