Duty to Warn: Antidepressants in Children and Adolescents
For nearly 17 years, since the FDA black box warning about suicidality with antidepressants, our community has been quoting data that downplays this concern. We were wrong. We were deceived. Antidepressants can be lifesaving, but there really is a duty to warn. In this episode, Doctors Martha Ignaszewski and Glen Spielmans talk with us about what went on and how to talk about it with our families. Guests: * Dr. Glen Spielmans, professor of psychology at Metropolitan State University in Saint Paul, Minnesota * Dr. Martha Ignaszewski, staff psychiatrist at BC Children’s Hospital and a clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia Published On: 3/1/2021 Duration: 24 minutes, 36 seconds Related Articles: * "Duty to Warn?

Health Disparities is an indicator of a Broken System | Special guest - Gil Bashe
Gil Bashe, Managing Director of Finn Partners and Medika Life’s top 25 most influential voices in healthcare for 2021 joins Todd Eury on a discussion about our nation’s health disparities and our healthcare system’s reflection of a broken system. Interact w/ Gil on twitter, here: https://twitter.com/Gil_Bashe  References: Angelina Zayas, co-founder of the Grace and Peace community center, turned her church into a food bank on Chicago's northwest side. Just 4% of residents in the ZIP code received the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine as of Sunday, according to data from the Chicago Department of Public Health. Similarly low vaccination rates exist in other majority-Latino and majority-Black neighborhoods across the city's south and west sides, despite COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on those populations. https://www.usatoday.com/in-depth/news/health/2021/02/12/data-analysis-chicago-vaccine-rollout-reflects-us-racial-disparities/4418978001/ Bashe, named by Medika Life as one of the top 50 healthcare influencers, outlines why health care technology must be more accessible to people with urgent health needs. https://medika.life/fifty-of-the-most-influential-voices-in-healthcare-for-2021/ [The US government is throwing the kitchen sink at the Covid-19 national response. It’s doing so with an urgency so great that the Food and Drug Administration has issued Emergency Use Authorizations that tear down long-standing obstacles to telehealth, digital health, diagnostics and innovative medications that may prove effective against the virus.  By Gregg Girvan and Avik Roy The United States ranks 4th in the World Index of Healthcare Innovation, with an overall score of 54.96, behind only Switzerland, Germany, and the Netherlands. Americans are usually the first to gain access to major new medical advances, advances often discovered at American universities and developed by American companies. As a result, the U.S. ranked first for both Choice (57.65) and Science & Technology (75.14). https://freopp.org/united-states-health-system-profile-4-in-the-world-index-of-healthcare-innovation-b593ba15a96 Vaccine ‘Deserts’ Released in early February, the study, a white paper posted on the University of Pittsburgh’s website, found that in 69 counties, Black Americans would need to travel farther to get to sites such as hospital outpatient departments, federally qualified health centers and rural health clinics, and community pharmacies that formed the early backbone of large-scale vaccination efforts. The study, which used a sample population and geographic data supplied by the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Health Resources and Services Administration, among others, found that some of the worst so-called “vaccine deserts” for Black people were in Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina. In Lee County, Ga., for example, Black Americans are 825% more likely to live more than 10 miles from a vaccination location than whites. In Madison County, Miss., the figure is 976%. And in Chilton County, Ala., it’s 1,193%, the study found. But disparities are not limited to the rural South, according to lead investigator Lucas Berenbrok, PharmD, an assistant professor of pharmacy and therapeutics at UPMC School of Pharmacy. “Of those 69 counties, 23 are in urban areas, some are in the West and Southwest, and a few are in the Northeast,” Berenbrok said. “The point this analysis makes is that our existing health care infrastructure probably isn’t going to cut it in terms of achieving a good, equitable distribution of vaccines.” https://www.idse.net/Covid-19/Article/02-21/Pharmacy-s-Role-in-Addressing-Vaccine-Inequities/62669 This episode was sponsored by Ultiguard Safe Pack UltiGuard Safe Pack is the only pen needle product that comes with an all-in-one sharps container.

Peptic Ulcer Disease
Ulcers are open sores that develop in the skin or mucous membranes. In peptic ulcer disease (PUD), painful sores develop, most commonly in the lining of the stomach, duodenum, or both. PUD arises when there is an imbalance between protective factors (eg, mucosal barrier) and damaging factors (eg, hydrochloric acid). How does PUD differ from gastritis? Gastritis describes inflammation of the stomach lining, which can be acute or chronic. With gastritis, the submucosae are not harmed, and the muscular stomach wall remains intact. In PUD, there is ulceration through the mucosa into underlying tissue, which can reach into the submucosa and muscular layer. It may cause perforation and bleeding. Chronic gastritis can be a predisposing factor, but it is not required to diagnose PUD. After listening to this AudioBrick, you should be able to: * Define peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and state the most important risk factors. * Describe the morphologic and pathogenetic features of Helicobacter pylori and the histology of gastric lesions with which it is associated. * Explain gastrinoma and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome as a cause of PUD. * Describe the typical clinical presentation of PUD and the tests used to make a diagnosis. * Explain the most common treatment strategies for PUD. * List the potential adverse outcomes of untreated PUD. You can also check out the original brick on Peptic Ulcer Disease from our Gastrointestinal collection, which is available for free.
