A Faculty Development Session or Resident as Teacher Session for Didactic and Clinical Teaching Techniques; Part 1 of 2: Engaging Learners with Effective Didactic TeachingDOI: https://doi.org/10.21980/J8RP4T
By the end of this workshop, the learner will: 1) describe eight teaching techniques that encourage active learning during didactic sessions; 2) plan a didactic session using at least one of eight new teaching techniques for didactic instruction
A Faculty Development Session or Resident as Teacher Session for Clinical and Clinical Teaching Techniques; Part 2 of 2: Engaging Learners with Effective Clinical TeachingDOI: https://doi.org/10.21980/J8MW2W
By the end of this workshop, the learner will: 1) describe and implement nine new clinical teaching techniques; 2) implement clinical teaching techniques specific to junior and senior resident learners.
By completing this oral board case learners will 1) evaluate a patient with altered mental status and discuss the differential diagnosis of a patient with altered mental status and weakness; 2) recognize the signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning; 3) manage treatment of a patient with carbon monoxide poisoning
By the end of this session, the learner will: 1) describe primary dialysis complications; 2) construct a full differential for a dialysis patient presenting with complications; 3) formulate an appropriate treatment and resuscitation in an acutely ill dialysis patient; 4) plan appropriate disposition and utilization of consultants for dialysis complications.
At the end of this module, the learner will be able to: 1) list the diagnoses critical to the emergency physician that may present with headache; 2) identify key historical and examination findings that help differentiate primary (benign) from secondary (serious) causes of headache; 3) discuss the indications for diagnostic imaging, lumbar puncture and laboratory testing in patients with headache; 4) recognize life-threatening diagnoses on CT imaging and CSF examination; 5) describe treatment strategies to relieve headache symptoms.
At the end of this simulation session, the learner will: 1) Recognize signs and symptoms of mesenteric ischemia; 2) order appropriately imaging and labs in the workup of an elderly patient with abdominal pain; 3) manage a patient with mesenteric ischemia, a rare, but serious cause of abdominal pain in the elderly; 4) discuss anchoring bias, specifically related to patients referred to the ED with an established diagnosis by outside specialists.
Bedside ultrasound revealed the presence of a left atrial mass that appeared to be tethered to the mitral valve. The mass was best viewed on ultrasound in the apical four-chamber window with the phased array probe placed over the patients’ point of maximal impact (PMI), with the patient in left lateral decubitus position.
In the lateral view chest x-ray, there is a Hampton’s Hump, a pleural based, wedge-shaped opacity at the base of the right lung, representing lung infarction (black arrow). These findings correlate with the sagittal view on CT angiography of the chest. The CT chest also shows a filling defect in the distal posterior basal segmental pulmonary artery (white arrow), as demonstrated by the absence of contrast enhancement in the distal portion of the vessel. This is associated with an opacification of the lung parenchyma distal to the occlusion (red arrow), representing lung infarction.
The ECG shows diffuse ST- elevation. The patient also has mild PR-depression, most notably in the inferior and lateral leads. The patient also has minimal PR elevation in lead aVR. The patient was diagnosed with acute pericarditis (ECG stage 1).
The left Achilles tendon had a defect on palpation, while the right Achilles tendon was intact. When squeezing the right (unaffected) calf, the ankle spontaneously plantar flexed, indicating a negative (normal) Thompson test. Upon squeeze of the left (affected) calf, the ankle did not plantar flex, signifying a positive (abnormal) Thompson test. The diagnosis of left Achilles tendon rupture was confirmed intraoperatively one week later.
