Jonathan Kopel

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2019 Jan 11;32(1):167-168. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Department of Internal Medicine, Texas Tech University Health Sciences CenterLubbockTexas.

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder resulting from chromosomal duplications, deletions, or imprinting within the 15q11-q13 region. In most cases, patients with PWS inherit a de novo paternally inherited deletion, and the remaining result from maternal disomy 15 and imprinting. Currently, DNA methylation analysis remains the gold standard for diagnosing PWS. Read More

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2019 Jan 11;32(1):165-166. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Department of Internal Medicine, Texas Tech University Health Sciences CenterLubbockTexas.

Although clinical geneticists have traditionally monopolized the administration of genetic tests, several genetic test companies have started producing affordable consumer tests for genetic screening and ancestry analysis. With genetic test kits readily available, patients are increasingly using personal genetic testing resources with the intention of sharing their results with their primary care physicians. Therefore, both medical professionals and patients need information and guidelines to interpret and act on personal genetic data. Read More

Department of Internal Medicine, Texas Tech University Health Sciences CenterLubbockTexas.

Near-death experiences (NDEs) have been a source of controversy within academia and the public. NDEs occur in 10% to 20% of patients who have come close to death and consist of vivid, subjective experiences that occur during life-threatening emergencies. Specifically, NDEs include out-of-body experiences, pleasant feelings, seeing deceased relatives, a life review, or a conscious return into the body. Read More

Implications of endotracheal tube placement in a patient with a true tracheal bronchus.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2019 Jan 16;32(1):138-139. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Division of Pulmonary Medicine, Baylor Scott & White Medical CenterTempleTexas.

We report a rare anatomic abnormality, a true tracheal bronchus, where the right upper bronchus originates directly from the supracarinal trachea. This unusual anatomic variant can be problematic for the anesthesiologist if it is unrecognized. It can lead to hypoventilation of the right upper bronchus or cause confusion in placement of a double-lumen endotracheal tube if the carina is misidentified, as demonstrated in our case report.

Department of Anesthesiology, Critical Care, and Pain Medicine, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer CenterHoustonTexas.

This study (NCT02428413) evaluated waste anesthetic gas (WAG) in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU) and assessed the utility of the ISO-Gard mask in reducing nursing exposure to WAG. We hypothesized that WAG levels in the patient's breathing zone upon recovery would exceed the recommended levels, leading to increased exposure of the PACU nurses, with use of the ISO-Gard mask limiting this exposure. A total of 125 adult patients were recruited to participate. Read More

Driver see, driver crash: Associations between televised stock car races' audience size and the incidence of speed-related motor vehicle collisions in the United States.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2019 Jan 7;32(1):37-42. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Division of Trauma, Critical Care, and Acute Care Surgery, Baylor University Medical Center at DallasDallasTexas.

Several studies have examined road rage, but few studies have examined other psychosocial factors that may contribute to the number of motor vehicle collisions (MVCs). One study found increases in MVCs in West Virginia following televised NASCAR races but did not account for audience size. This study examined associations between NASCAR's television viewership ratings and the incidence of speed-related MVCs in the USA using generalized estimating equations that controlled for seasonal effects, intoxication, road surface conditions, and lighting conditions.
