National Case Conference - January 2023
1. A 56-year-old man with a history of diabetes, hypertension, severe restrictive lung disease secondary to covid pneumonia presents with one day of fatigue, dyspnea on exertion, dry cough, and hypoxia (79% at home pulse oximetry). Patient states the symptoms began acutely, two hours after getting home from work the day prior. He reports that a few other co-workers have similar symptoms as him or they have nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting. He thinks a virus is going around his workplace. 2. A 51-year-old man presents with a diffuse rash over the past 6 days that developed after he ingested a product for sexual stimulation called “royal honey” that he obtained at a local shop. His VS are normal and he is in no distress. 3. A 2-year-old girl is extracted from underneath debris from a structural fire; she was found covered in soot and is pulseless. CPR is initiated and ROSCis achieved within minutes. She arrives to the ED with the following vital signs: BP, 95/58; HR, 130; RR, 28; SaO2, 100% on NRB; T, 98.6F. She is only responsive to pain and is promptly intubated.
Disinfectants and COVID-19
The courses included in this Learning Plan are awaiting CE. This series of three elearning modules provides information about protecting your family and community from infectious disease using cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting products that are safer for human health and the environment.
Endocrine Disruptors in Consumer Products
Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Consumer Products is a three-part series of interactive, self-paced eLearning modules. The goal of this series is to enhance the knowledge of physicians and other healthcare providers about endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) including populations who may be vulnerable to exposure, identification of EDCs in consumer products, potential health effects of exposure, and exposure prevention strategies. By enhancing their knowledge, physicians and other healthcare providers can better assess patients who may be exposed to EDCs in consumer products.
Utilizing the Environmental Public Health System
This course is part of a series of short courses offered by the American College of Medical Toxicology on contemporary issues in environmental toxicology and environmental health developed by leading authorities in medical toxicology, under the direction of Drs. Michael Kosnett, Charles McKay and Paul Wax.
Safer Disinfectants Use in Your Home During the COVID-19 Pandemic
