Ilana Borukhov, Denise Rizzolo
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) both cause an infl ammatory response and hypoxia. Patients who have both conditions (overlap syndrome) have increased morbidity and mortality. This article aims to increase awareness of the potential effects that untreated OSA can have on COPD and the importance of treating patients with overlap syndrome.

OBJECTIVES: Physician assistants (PAs) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) can perform multiple roles on primary care teams, but limited research describes the patients they serve. We sought to identify patient characteristics associated with roles of primary care PAs and APRNs. METHODS: We analyzed adult respondents to the 2010 Health Tracking Household Survey with a primary care usual provider (physician, PA, or APRN). The dependent variable is the PA or APRN role...

Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and clinicians treating them are faced with innumerable management choices. Minimizing thromboembolic events and strokes related to AF is paramount. Estimating the risks with the various therapies is important for optimal therapy. Also, patients must choose a rate control or a rhythm control strategy. With so many options, clinical presentations, and patient desires, patients with AF are rarely treated identically. This allows for shared decision-making and patient-centered care...

Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency is an inherited disorder that may lead to early development of emphysema and also can cause serious hepatic disease. Because the condition is underrecognized, diagnosis may be delayed. This article aims to increase awareness about alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency and screening guidelines that can help primary care providers identify patients early for better outcomes.

Denise Yocum
This article describes an uncommon presentation of a subdural empyema in a young man. Because the patient's initial presentation consisted of nonspecific abdominal complaints, subdural empyema was not initially considered. However, a thorough medical history, including recent travel history, and appropriate multidisciplinary consultation, were key to reaching the correct diagnosis.

Laura Dubis, Miranda Collins
Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an autoimmune condition that can cause life-threatening bleeding. ITP may develop idiopathically, after an infection or administration of a medication, or as a comorbid condition. Treatment depends on whether life-threatening, active bleeding is occurring. Although corticosteroids remain a standard of care, new medications offer patients an alternative to splenectomy when other pharmacologic treatments fail.

Since 1798, the men and women of the Commissioned Corps of the US Public Health Service (USPHS), one of the seven US uniformed services, have served on the front lines of public health. Two hundred years after the start of the USPHS, the first physician assistant (PA) entered the service to carry on the tradition of protecting, promoting, and advancing the health and safety of the nation. These dedicated clinicians are involved in healthcare delivery to underserved and vulnerable populations, disease control and prevention, biomedical research, food and drug regulation, and national and international response efforts for natural and man-made disasters...

Daniel Pavlik, Michael Huber, Melissa Justice
This article describes a young, otherwise healthy woman who presented to the ED with numbness in her feet and was discharged. Twenty-four hours later, she returned because of difficulty walking; in 48 hours she could not walk without assistance. Although Guillain-Barré syndrome was suspected initially, the patient's weakness, sensory loss, and autonomic dysfunction eventually were diagnosed as transverse myelitis, a myelopathy often associated with infectious or autoimmune diseases. The article describes the presentation, diagnostic evaluation and criteria, treatment, and prognosis of transverse myelitis...

Chelsea Hiller, Jennifer L Wegler, Christopher P Forest
Osteosarcoma is the most common primary bone malignancy in children and adolescents. Because the incidence of osteosarcoma is low and the disease occurs in physically active patients, it may be misdiagnosed as a more benign condition, thus leading to late diagnosis. This article describes the disease's most frequent presenting complaints and initial radiographic findings, as well as its risk factors and common misdiagnoses. Clinicians should consider osteosarcoma in young patients with persistent bone pain, especially pain with weight-bearing...
