101. QTc Prolongation and Psychotropic Medications

is not as significant as the risk of psychiatric decompensation with a lower dose. There is evidence to suggest that the FDA warning has not reduced all-cause or cardiac mortality, but has led to increased rates of psychiatric hospitalizations for patients whose dose was reduced reflexively (39). Another study found that patients who had their dose of citalopram reflexively reduced were more likely to be prescribed sedatives or anxiolytics and had higher healthcare utilization (40). These studies highlight

103. Low back pain and radicular pain: evaluation and management

a pain in the lower extremity with a dermatomal distribution. In some patients, radicular pain can be dominant over the back pain or can be isolated. Radicular pain can be associated with neurological symptoms and signs (numbness and/or tingling, in a dermatome pattern, reflex disturbances or motor weakness in an associated myotome), although this is not always the case. Not all radicular pain have a neuropathic pain component, i.e. pain caused by a lesion or a disease affecting the somatosensory (...) nervous system. All phases of the affection are covered by the guideline: acute phase from 0 to 6 weeks, sub-acute from 6 to 12 weeks and chronic from 12 weeks. This guideline covers: ? Low back pain without serious underlying cause (red flags) ? Radicular pain (including neurogenic claudication) This guideline does not address: ? Low back pain and radicular pain in children ( 75% in nearly all studies) and a severe spectrum of disease, and cannot be generalised to populations with a lower prevalence

You are given the option of two coloured markers, green or red. But, when you choose green you are handed a yellow crayon. How do you feel? Confused? Frustrated? Angry? Sad? This is what so many physicians do every day when asking patients about goals of care. It does not have to be this way. Asking a patient who (...) pain control. 8) Nausea and vomiting have more than one cause… and treatment. Dopaminergic? Cholinergic? Serotonergic?

The presence of metabolic syndrome criteria should be sought to support a diagnosis of NAFLD. For children, the text should be consulted for modification of recommendation. Areas of diagnostic (...) persists even if both values are within the normal refer- ence interval. 39 While it is hard to justify the routine analysis of both AST and ALT together on every liver blood test request, a strategy not supported by the data from the BALLETS study, subsequent testing of AST (or ALT depending which one is undertaken first) to calculate the AST:ALT ratio is clearly desirable. From a patient and cost perspective this is likely to be more cost-effective if performed by ‘reflex’ on the same sera following

(if needed). Be sure to keep in mind the red flags for back pain that include: history of IV drug use, history of cancer, night time symptoms, fever, saddle anesthesia, bowel or bladder incontinence, or neurologic symptoms such as weakness or asymmetric reflexes.

For example, in a young and otherwise healthy patient with no red flag symptoms mechanical back pain should come up much earlier in the differential than the causes listed under referred pain. Advanced learners should be able to come up with these categorical clusters without a mnemonic

in primary care settings. Visual acuity tests screen for visual deficits associated with amblyopia and refractive error. Ocular alignment tests screen for strabismus. Steroacuity tests assess depth perception. For children younger than 3 years, screening may include the fixation and follow test (for visual acuity), the red reflex test (for media opacity), and the corneal light reflex test (for strabismus). Instrument-based vision screening (i.e., with autorefractors and photoscreeners) may be used (...) in very young children, including infants. Autorefractors are computerized instruments that detect refractive errors; photoscreeners detect amblyopia risk factors (ocular alignment and media opacity) and refractive errors. Vision screening in children older than 3 years may include the red reflex test, the cover-uncover test (for strabismus), the corneal light reflex test, visual acuity tests (e.g., Snellen, Lea Symbols [Lea-Test], and HOTV [Precision Vision] charts), autorefractors and photoscreeners
