In participating in the educational session associated with this task trainer, the learner will: 1) Identify landmarks for the following nerve blocks: Infraorbital, Supraorbital (V1), Mental, Periauricular 2) Demonstrate the appropriate technique for anesthetic injection for each of these nerve blocks 3) Map the distribution of regional anesthesia expected from each nerve block 4) Apply the indications and contraindications for each regional nerve block
By the end of this session, the learner will be able to: 1) Recognize normal and abnormal left heart global function 2) Recognize normal and abnormal right heart global function 3) Recognize pericardial effusions and pericardial tamponade
Upon completion of this cTBL module, the learner will be able to: 1) Properly assess LVAD patients’ circulatory status; 2) appropriately resuscitate LVAD patients; 3) identify common LVAD complications; 4) evaluate and appropriately manage patients with LVAD malfunctions.
By the end of this educational session, the learner will: 1) List the six primary types of rash (maculopapular, petechial/purpura, diffuse erythematous, non-erythematous, vesiculo-bullous, and pustular). 2) Be able to accurately describe various types of lesions and rashes with appropriate terminology; 3) Understand the use of the Modified Lynch Algorithm and how it can be used to narrow down the differential diagnosis in patients presenting with rash.
Pediatric sepsis is a low-frequency, high impact condition. Nurses and physicians do not see it often, but must recognize and treat children with sepsis efficiently when they present. This makes pediatric sepsis education particularly amenable to simulation scenarios.
At the end of this simulation session, the learner will: 1) Demonstrate the management of status epilepticus 2) Justify when airway intervention is needed for status epilepticus 3) Describe risk factors for status epilepticus 4) Prepare a differential diagnosis for the causes in status epilepticus.
Physical examination revealed inflamed gingiva, ulceration, and soft tissue necrosis (Image 1) along with mandibular lymphadenopathy (not shown). Given her symptoms, poor oral care, and her immunocompromised state, she was given a diagnosis of Acute Necrotizing Ulcerative Gingivitis (ANUG) or Vincent’s Angina.
Chest x-ray and CT angiogram was performed to evaluate his thoracic and abdominal vasculature. Chest x-ray did not show any significant widening of the mediastinum. The CT angiogram demonstrated an intimal tear along the aortic arch separating a true and false aortic lumen, consistent with an acute aortic dissection. The true lumen (highlighted in blue in images 1-5) can be identified by continuity with an undissected part of the aorta. While the false lumen (highlighted in red in images 1-5) can be identified by its crescent shape and larger cross-sectional area.
The X-ray showed an acute comminuted fracture of the distal diaphysis of the radius with disruption of the distal radioulnar joint, consistent with a Galeazzi fracture. The patient was then splinted and taken for operative reduction and internal fixation the following day.
