Facilitators and barriers to ad hoc team performance.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018 Jul 14;31(3):380-384. Epub 2018 May 14.

Department of Medicine, Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, Temple, Texas.

Most teams in hospital medicine are ad hoc, meaning that the teams vary in participants. Ad hoc teams can be found in academic teaching hospitals where team members change across shifts and rotations. Due to varying team membership, these teams face significant hurdles, because they lack an opportunity to develop a team identity, shared mental models, and trust. Read More

Department of Nursing, University of San Francisco School of Nursing, San Francisco, California.

Malignant tumors composed of both epithelial and melanocytic populations are exceedingly rare. Because the etiology of these malignant tumors is not yet defined, several authors have argued for the continued cataloging of these lesions. We present a 67-year-old man with a suspicious-appearing lesion on the right forearm; initial biopsy was consistent with a pigmented basal cell carcinoma. Read More

Deaths associated with insertion of nasogastric tubes for enteral nutrition in the medical intensive care unit: Clinical and autopsy findings.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018 Jul 21;31(3):310-316. Epub 2018 May 21.

Department of Pathology, Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, Texas.

It is generally assumed that blind insertion of nasogastric tubes for enteral nutrition in patients admitted to medical intensive care units is safe; that is, does not result in life-threatening injury. If death occurs in temporal association with insertion of a nasogastric tube, caregivers typically attribute it to underlying diseases, with little or no consideration of iatrogenic death due to tube insertion. The clinical and autopsy results in three recent cases at Baylor University Medical Center challenge the validity of these notions. Read More

Department of Internal Medicine, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Lubbock, Texas.

Ascites is a debilitating condition affecting patients with end-stage liver disease and advanced abdominal malignancies. Serial paracentesis can reduce symptoms in these patients; indwelling peritoneal catheters provide an alternative approach that allows patients to manage their symptoms at home. A literature search was conducted to identify studies with at least 20 patients published in the last 15 years that reported indwelling catheter placement in patients with chronic ascites. Read More

Identifying suspected familial chylomicronemia syndrome.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018 Jul 21;31(3):284-288. Epub 2018 May 21.

Baylor Heart and Vascular Institute, Dallas, Texas.

Familial chylomicronemia syndrome (FCS) is a rare lipid disorder posing significant clinical burdens on patients. Due to its rarity, variety of presentations, and lack of universal diagnostic criteria, patients see an average of five physicians before diagnosis. We screened adults for a triglyceride level ≥1000 mg/dL from September 2015 to September 2016 and a history of pancreatitis and performed a thorough chart review on those who met the criteria.

Frequency of atrial arrhythmias after atrial flutter ablation and the effect of presenting rhythm on the day of ablation.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018 Jul 14;31(3):280-283. Epub 2018 May 14.

Division of Cardiology, Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, Texas.

Radiofrequency catheter ablation of the cavotricuspid isthmus is a proven therapy for typical atrial flutter (AFl); however, in some patients, new atrial arrhythmias (AA) may occur after AFl ablation. This study explored the difference in the occurrence of spontaneous AA after AFl ablation as a function of the patient's presenting rhythm on the day of the AFl ablation. A retrospective study of consecutive patients who underwent AFl ablation at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas was performed. Read More

Utility of venous blood gases in severe sepsis and septic shock.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018 Jul 9;31(3):269-275. Epub 2018 May 9.

Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine, Baylor Scott & White Health, Temple, Texas.

Acid-base status is frequently assessed in severe sepsis and septic shock. Venous blood gas sampling is proposed as a less-invasive modality but lacks evidence within this population. The objective of this study was to evaluate the correlation and agreement between arterial blood gas (ABG), peripheral venous blood gas (pVBG), and central venous blood gas (cVBG) in severe sepsis and septic shock.

In the 1800s, the word was used to describe reanimated corpses in the Caribbean who often worked on plantations doing long, arduous field work. The movie was released in 1932 and exploited this folklore, but it ignored the fact that zombies represent one outcome in Vodou religious beliefs regarding death and the migration of spirits following death.

Vitamin C deficiency may be common in third-world countries due to malnutrition, but it is currently rare in the USA. Initially, nonspecific symptoms like exhaustion and depression may make this disease difficult to diagnose until classical dermatological manifestations appear. Diagnosis mainly relies on clinical presentation, dietary history to identify risk factors, and dramatic recession of symptoms and signs following vitamin C therapy. Read More
