Medical Rounds Presentation

Transcript: Family History - using Fiona’s family and medical history, a physical exam, and the results from diagnostic blood tests and procedures I determine that she had cancer-related IDA Treatment Options - treatment will depend on factors such as age, health, and cause. - To treat Fiona’s cancer related iron deficiency anemia, I recommend two things: ● take iron supplements along with an iron-rich diet to improve overall well being ● treat the underlying cause, the breast cancer. Fiona is now in remission, but the IDA will worsen as her cancer does. - mother also suffered from breast cancer, which can lead to cancer-related IDA Refrences Medical Rounds Presentation Organs/ Organ Systems Related to/ Impacted Iron Deficiency Anemia - name: Fiona - age: 41 - sex: female - a working mom and breast cancer survivor - fatigue - decreased work/ school performance - difficulty maintaining body temperature (always feeling cold) - decreased immune system - laboured breathing and headaches - the first step in being tested for IDA is blood tests. There are two initial types: ● Hemoglobin test (a test that measures hemoglobin which is a protein in the blood that carries oxygen) ● Hematocrit test (the percentage of red blood cells in your blood by volume) - these tests show how much iron is in your blood, and more importantly your body. Hemoglobin and hematocrit levels usually aren't decreased until the later stages of iron deficiency, i.e., anemia. - the next step is more blood tests used to confirm that anemia is due to iron deficiency. These might include: ● complete blood count (to look at the number and volume of the red blood cells) ● serum ferritin (a measure of a stored form of iron) ● serum iron (a measure of the iron in your blood) ● transferrin saturation (a measure of the transported form of iron) ● transferrin receptor (a measure of increased red blood cell production) http://www.medicinenet.com/iron_and_iron_deficiency/article.htm http:// www.ironmatters.com/?gclid=CLKw9oak9LkCFY87MgodYCkAUw http://www.rightdiagnosis.com/i/iron_deficiency_anemia/basics.htm the article on http://www.ironmatters.com/blog/patient-voices/don%E2%80%99t-suffer-unnecessarily - Anemia is a condition in which you do not have enough healthy red blood cells to deliver enough oxygen throughout your body. - When your body does not have enough iron, it will make fewer red blood cells or red blood cells that are too small. This is called iron deficiency anemia. Tests Used in Diagnosis - blood - circulatory system - Severe anemia may cause a condition called high-output heart failure, where the heart must work harder to provide enough oxygen to the brain and other internal organs. The heart beats faster and increases the amount of blood that is delivered per minute. Signs and Symptoms Patient Information Description of Diagnosis

Rounds Presentation

Transcript: Team - SLP, OT, TA 4-5 sessions/client Ax 2-3 Tx sessions with TA Follow up/Prescription Waitlist management 12 clients Phone History prior to Ax Plan: 3 Goals “The goal is to connect these children and youth to the services they need as early as possible and improve the service experience of families in three key areas: 1. Identifying kids earlier and getting them the right help sooner Trained providers ...will screen for potential risks to the child’s development as early as possible. 2. Coordinating service planning New service planning coordinators ... will connect families to the right services and supports. 3. Making supports and service delivery seamless Integrating the delivery of rehabilitation services...Services will be easier to access and seamless from birth through the school years.” (http://www.children.gov.on.ca/htdocs/English/topics/specialneeds/strategy/index.aspx) Barriers and Reflections Barriers Identifying and Meeting Our Client Needs 1. Increasing awareness amongst first responder community.  2. Offering resources and training , e.g., CDAC for frontline workers, and possibly sharing information via catchment agencies’ web sites.  3. Review role of signifier/arm band (with or without CAN symbol). The client and family may make use of aid (if their preference) in order to help first responder. 1. Kingston ACS Screening Clinic Screening Assessment Existing Screening Measures 2. Early AAC Intervention. Triaging select clients on waitlist. Prospective clients may not benefit from high tech intervention. Offered recommendations and treatment. Placement on wait list removed or adjusted accordingly. Minimizing/mitigating service gaps, i.e., more seamless service.  9 clients seen across 3 clinics: Language Express (PSL Smiths Falls); Pathways for Children & Youth (IBI); and Early Expressions (PSL Kingston)  5/9 referrals, i.e., 4 potentially inappropriate referrals not received. *Community providers rated quality of service and benefit of recommendations 5/5. Satisfaction and meeting clients' needs 4/5. Liked specific activity examples and strategies most. Results Preliminary Planning Stage Tyler Levee, M.Cl.Sc, S-LP (C), Reg.CASLPO Problem 6/12 clients seen Purpose and rationale  Community partners promote use of high tech systems for face-to-face communication. Sometimes inappropriate suggestions for system and/or implementation made. Opportunity to offer recommendations, suggest system or resource. Occasionally inappropriate referrals received, e.g., a client has functional speech or he/she is preintentional or not a symbol user. Meeting needs across large catchment and narrows/shortens wait list. 3. Identification of Communication Needs to First Responders Jessica Whynot, RECE,CDA, Therapy Assistant Long waitlist Complex cases Not necessarily appropriate for high tech Proposed initiatives to meet these needs: Concerns, Barriers, and Benefits Clients not appropriate for high tech - sent with low tech goals to work on One-to-one Tx - clinic is consultative Integrated services with other teams (Special Needs Strategy)  Composite checklist of essential AAC skills, e.g., intentional communication attempts, recognition and discrimination of symbols  Obtain additional valuable information inc. ability to match item to category, access needs, etc. Serves as guideline  Communication and Symbolic Behaviour Scales – Developmental Profile (CSBS-DP)  Augmentative Communication Interaction Checklist (Church & Glennen, 1992)  Meaningful Use of Speech Scale (MUSS) (Robbins & Osberger, 1992)  Augmentative and Alternative Communication Information and Needs Assessment (Beukelman & Mirenda, 1992)  Communication Matrix (Rowland, 2004)  Interactive Checklist for Augmentative Communication (INCH) (Bolton & Dashiell, 1991) Greater sensitivity than specificity? I.e., based on items alone, it is not great at identifying those who meet criteria but would not be eligible for prescription (emerging speech, unintelligible speech, DAS).  Poor reliability? Recognition and discrimination for novel symbols. Some clients were able to demonstrate skills only after multiple teaching trials. Others were able to demonstrate skills with own device, symbols. Inconsistent intake (coordinator vs. community ACS clinician) and misunderstanding amongst community providers. Resource intensive. Assessment Overview Special Needs Strategy Scheduling/time of the year Referral information was outdated SLP only available one day per week  Avoid stigmatization. Are clients visibly labeled by wearing signal and/or arm band? Do specific goals outweigh this concern?  Client needs may/may not be visible. Benefit for first responders to seek out system/device, seek contact information, ask family or guardians about need for system.  Nil traction with regional EMS. A number of contacts made. Possible to collaborate at provincial level?  Soliciting honest feedback re. the proposal, contacts and coordination process. Please see

Morning Rounds

Transcript: Morning Rounds This is a 56 year old African American woman who presented to the ED with 3 days of nausea and vomiting. What questios do you have about this patient's HPI,PMH,PE? What is the first step in therapy? Work Up the Acid/Base Disturbance! Stepwise approach to interpreting the arterial blood gas. 1. H&P. The most clinical useful information comes from the clinical description of the patient by the history and physical examination. The H&P usually gives an idea of what acid base disorder might be present even before collecting the ABG sample 2. Look at the pH. Is there an acid base disorder present? - If pH < 7.35, then acidemia - if pH > 7.45, then alkalemia - If pH within normal range, then acid base disorder not likely present. - pH may be normal in the presence of a mixed acid base disorder, particularly if other parameters of the ABG are abnormal. 3. Look at PCO2, HCO3-. What is the acid base process (alkalosis vs acidosis) leading to the abnormal pH? Are both values normal or abnormal? - In simple acid base disorders, both values are abnormal and direction of the abnormal change is the same for both parameters. - One abnormal value will be the initial change and the other will be the compensatory response. 3a. Distinguish the initial change from the compensatory response. - The initial change will be the abnormal value that correlates with the abnormal pH. - If Alkalosis, then PCO2 low or HCO3- high - If Acidosis, then PCO2 high or HCO3- low. Once the initial change is identified, then the other abnormal parameter is the compensatory response if the direction of the change is the same. If not, suspect a mixed disorder. 3b. Once the initial chemical change and the compensatory response is distinguished, then identify the specific disorder. See table below. - If PCO2 is the initial chemical change, then process is respiratory. - if HCO3- is the initial chemical change, then process is metabolic. Acid Base Disorder Initial Chemical Change Compensatory Response Respiratory Acidosis ↑ PCO2 ↑HCO3- Respiratory Alkalosis ↓ PCO2 ↓ HCO3- Metabolic Acidosis ↓ HCO3- ↓ PCO2 Metabolic Alkalosis ↑ HCO3- ↑ PCO2 4. If respiratory process, is it acute or chronic? - An acute respiratory process will produce a compensatory response that is due primarily to rapid intracellular buffering. - A chronic respiratory process will produce a more significant compensatory response that is due primarily to renal adaptation, which takes a longer time to develop. - To assess if acute or chronic, determine the extent of compensation. See table. 5. If metabolic acidosis, then look at the Anion Gap. - If elevated (> than 16), then acidosis due to KULT. (Ketoacidosis, Uremia, Lactic acidosis, Toxins). See table. - If anion gap is normal, then acidosis likely due to diarrhea, RTA. 6. If metabolic process, is degree of compensation adequate? - Calculate the estimated PCO2, this will help to determine if a seperate respiratory disorder is present. See table. 7. If anion gap is elevated, then calculate the Delta-Ratio (∆/∆) to assess for other simultaneous disorders. - ∆/∆ compares the change in the anion gap to the change in bicarbonate. - If ratio between 1 and 2, then pure elevated anion gap acidosis - If < 1, then there is a simultaneous normal anion gap acidosis present. - if > 2, then there is a simultaneous metabolic alkalosis present or a compensated chronic respiratory acidosis. 8. If normal anion gap and cause is unknown, then calculate the Urine Anion Gap (UAG). This will help to differentiate RTAs from other causes of non elevated anion gap acidosis. - In RTA, UAG is positive. - In diarrhea and other causes of metabolic acidosis, the UAG is negative. (neGUTive in diarrhea Electrolytes Potassium If a patient is hyperkalemic, it is best to hold potassium. Low potassium is a sign of more serious disease and should be replaced. Sodium Typically, low sodium itself does not cause many clinical promlems in this context. Phosphate Bicarbonate Should bicarbonate be replaced? No. Has not been proven to be useful and is associated with a four fold increase in the incidence of cerbral edema. Treatment? Insulin at .1 units/kg/hr Why not faster? Low phosphate can lead to muscle weakness, confusion and rhabdomyolysis from depleted ATP stores. Phosphate repletion has not been shown to be of benefit in patients with DVT.
