The Rhode Island Violent Death Reporting System (RIVDRS) collects comprehensive surveillance data on violent deaths to support violence prevention programs in Rhode Island and nationwide. Successful collection of firearm information is critical to understanding gun violence in public health. A recent quality improvement (QI) project was performed to improve gun information collection in the RIVDRS program. Our aim was to increase the presence of firearm model information for 2014 suicides from 50% to 80% by December 31, 2015...

BACKGROUND: This study compared outcomes and costs for new-onset Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients educated at the outpatient versus inpatient settings. METHODS/DESIGN: Retrospective study examining the following variables: 1) hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), 2) severe hypoglycemia, 3) admissions for diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) or ER visits, and 4) healthcare cost. RESULTS: 152 patients with new-onset T1DM from September 2007-August 2009.

Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne infection in the Northern hemisphere. Cardiac manifestations of Lyme disease typically include variable atrioventricular nodal block and rarely structural heart pathology. The incidence of Lyme carditis may be underestimated based on current reporting practices of confirmed cases. This case of a 59-year-old man with Lyme carditis demonstrates the unique presentation of widespread conduction system disease, mitral regurgitation, and suspected ischemic disease. Through clinical data, electrocardiograms, and cardiac imaging, we show the progression, and resolution, of a variety of cardiac symptoms attributable to infection with Lyme...

Middle school students completed pre- and post-assessments. Teachers and medical students completed questionnaires relating their perceptions of students' attitudes and understanding of sexual health...

INTRODUCTION: Toxic shock syndrome occurs from dysregulation of host inflammatory responses. Toxin- producing strains of Group A streptococcus cause TSS. Ischemic optic neuropathy rarely complicates septic shock. We present a rare case of streptococcal pharyngitis complicated by septic arthritis and TSS with reversible blindness due to non-arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy. CASE: A 28-year-old man drove to our ED with exudative pharyngitis. A rapid streptococcal test was positive...

We report a case of Fournier's gangrene in a 12-year-old boy from St. Boniface Hospital in Fond-des-Blancs, Haiti. Fournier's gangrene, a fulminant necrotizing fasciitis of the penis and scrotum, is a rare and life-threatening infection that requires hospitalization, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and surgical debridement.1-3 It is usually associated with impaired cellular immunity due to systemic disorders such as diabetes and liver disease.4,5 This patient had none of those risk factors, but had severe, longstanding phimosis, for which circumcision had been recommended many years before...
