A Resident ’s Right to Appeal a Facility-Initiated Discharge
On May 12, 2016, Mrs. D was admitted to an acute care facility after she was found collapsed in her home, unresponsive, covered with melenic stool, and with dried blood around her mouth. She could not provide a history, and her daughter (her caregiver) was unavailable. She was noted to have possible upper gastrointestinal bleeding, rhabdomyolysis (from a fall), and a urinary tract infection (UTI). She was hydrated aggressively, and her rhabdomyolysis and kidney injury resolved. Her upper endoscopy examination showed severe esophagitis and Barrett ’s esophagus. (Source: Caring for the Ages)

What Wildland Fire Fighters Need to Know about Rhabdomyolysis
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]. 05/2018 This two-page fact sheet provides information, questions, and answers about rhabdomyolysis (often called rhabdo), which is the breakdown of damaged muscle tissue that releases proteins and electrolytes into the blood. Because exertion in a hot environment is such a fundamental part of the job, fire fighters need to know the signs and symptoms of rhabdo to be able to quickly recognize the potential danger and get medical attention right away if they are not feeling well.

What Causes Hypernatremia?
Discussion Hypernatremia is a serum sodium of> 150 mEq/L. Basic causes are too much sodium or too little free water. If body weight is normal or increased, there is an increase in total body sodium without an appropriate increase in total body water. Normally when the serum sodium is increased there is transient hypertonicity of the plasma which causes the thirst center to be stimulated and antidiuretic hormone (ADH) to be released. The thirst center tells the person to drink more water and ADH causes the kidney to retain free water. This normally will allow the plasma tonicity to go back to normal. Treatment is by tr...

Statins side effects 'have been overstated', says study
Conclusion This is a complex study that provides a plausible explanation for the difference in reports of adverse effects of statins in RCTs and observational studies, some of which have suggested as many as 1 in 5 people get side effects from statins. However, we need to be aware of some limitations and unanswered questions: When people knew they were taking statins, they were more likely to report muscle pain than those not taking statins. But they were less likely to report muscle pain than in the first phase of the study, when they didn't know whether they were taking statins or placebo. We don't know why this is. ...

How Sore Should You Be After a Workout?
We’ve all heard the adage “no pain, no gain,” but how much truth is there to that mantra? It depends. Pain during or immediately following exercise, for one, is typically bad news. But soreness that comes several hours after your workout is usually a good thing. Check in with your body during and after your workouts by asking, “Am I feeling pain – or am I feeling like my muscles are working and that’s making me tired?” The two are very different. Pain is a warning signal that something is not right with your body; tiredness and soreness are signs of using a muscle to its full capac...

This study was groundbreaking. First, it was a prospective study; second, it found a complication rate of 1.7% limited to nerve palsies. These updated findings on complications of the device have helped to allay prior fears of morbidity that deterred tourniquet use. Following suit, the civilian community conducted its own research. Yielding low complication rates and high potential benefits, this research bolstered the recommendation for aggressive early tourniquet use.7 Mirroring the wave of change in military protocols, by 2012 some large metropolitan areas began equipping ambulances with commercial tourniquets and ...
