Influenza infections can cause a variety of different systemic problems beyond respiratory symptoms. A 4-year-old boy with a history of atopy, infected with influenza A, presented to our hospital with an asthma exacerbation developed symptoms of anaphylaxis. He was treated with a full course of oseltamivir and symptoms resolved without recurrence of allergic reaction. Infections have been implicated as causes of anaphylaxis but this has mostly been limited to parasites. While viral infections have been documented as causes of urticarial rashes, anaphylaxis due to viral infection has only been reported once, in an adult patient...

Brian D McCauley, Antony F Chu
Implantable pacemakers stand as a mainstay in our therapeutic arsenal, affording those suffering from advanced cardiac conduction system disease both an improved quality of life and reduced mortality. Annually, over 225,000 new pacemakers are implanted in the United States for bradyarrhythmias and heart block. The first implantable transvenous pacemakers appeared in 1965; they were bulky devices, hobbled by a short battery life, and a single pacing mode. Modern transvenous pacemakers have evolved considerably with significant improvements in battery life, pacing options, and lead technology but are still subject to a spectrum of complications stemming from either the subcutaneous pocket or the leads, including: hematoma, infection, wound dehiscence, pneumothorax, cardiac tamponade, lead dislodgment, upper extremity deep vein thrombosis, lead failure, venous obstruction, tricuspid valve insufficiency, and endocarditis...

Rehabilitation is crucial in the treatment of ACL injuries, particularly in the pediatric population. Children are often eager to return to their pre-injury level of athletic participation, which may place them at risk for re-injury if rehabilitation protocols are not adequately followed. Contemporary protocols incorporate functional benchmarks rather than solely time-based milestones to better evaluate if patients have adequate strength and function to return to sport activities. Optimization of rehabilitation can lead to safer return to play and minimize the risk of re-injury...

Jose M Ramirez, Craig P Eberson
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a common clinical entity that affects approximately 2-3% of children and adolescents. AIS is defined as a curvature of the spine > 10 degrees and it usually presents as a right thoracic curve. Only a small fraction of patients with AIS go on to surgical intervention. This article will review the role of rehabilitation in the management of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, specifically as related to the preoperative, perioperative and postoperative care of patients with AIS...

Brachial plexus injuries during the birthing process can leave infants with upper extremity deficits corresponding to the location of the lesion within the complex plexus anatomy. Manifestations can range from mild injuries with complete resolution to severe and permanent disability. Overall, patients have a high rate of spontaneous recovery (66-92%).1,2 Initially, all lesions are managed with passive range motion and observation. Prevention and/or correction of contractures with occupational therapy and serial splinting/casting along with encouraging normal development are the main goals of non-operative treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Medicaid expansion since 2014, 68,000 more adults under age 65 years were enrolled in Rhode Island Medicaid as of December 2015, a 78% increase from 2013 enrollment. This report assesses changes in dental utilization associated with this expansion. METHODS: Medicaid enrollment and dental claims for calendar years 2012-2015 were extracted from the RI Medicaid Management Information System. Among adults aged 18-64 years, annual numbers and percentages of Medicaid enrollees who received any dental service were summarized...

#14
Alan L Gordon, Amy F Snyder
New Rhode Island regulations require physicians and other licensed practitioners to make significant adjustments to comply with new requirements for prescribing narcotics for chronic pain. Responding to the opioid epidemic, the new rules are intended to improve patient safety by changing physicians' prescribing patterns. However, the new rules may overlook the importance of treatment-access problems and the importance of buprenorphine products for treating pain and opioid dependence. Empirical data have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of buprenorphine in treating opioid-dependent patients with chronic pain, including those with and without substance abuse histories, but access to buprenorphine treatment remains limited throughout the state...

Alan L Gordon, Seamus L Connolly
The CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain, published last March, provided major steps toward bringing the medical community together to address the opioid epidemic in the U.S. However, the Guideline focuses primarily on treatment of new inductions into opioid therapy for pain. Physicians may have difficulty figuring out how to apply the CDC's recommendations to patients who are already receiving opioid maintenance therapy for chronic pain. Patients already maintained on opioids for chronic pain should not be subjected to abrupt cessation or rapid tapers, and the CDC's Guideline confirms this...
