Todd M Olszewski
Using editorials published in the Rhode Island Medical Journal's inaugural year, this article examines what it meant to practice medicine in Rhode Island in 1917. One hundred years ago, the state's medical community was undergoing rapid transformation epitomized by a turn toward the germ theory of disease, ongoing education and hospital reform, and a growing sense of the profession's political and social role. In many ways, the social and professional concerns of Rhode Island physicians in 1917 continue to resonate today...

Violence against women is a public health issue. Monitoring assault-related injury and homicide death among women is imperative for understanding this public health issue. We used data from the 2014 Rhode Island emergency department (ED), hospital discharge (HD), and 2004-2014 Rhode Island violent death reporting system (RIVDRS) to provide a broad picture for violence against women injuries and deaths in Rhode Island. ED visit and HD data show that the majority of female assault injuries occurred among women aged 25-44, resided in the core cities, and had public insurance...

Falls are the leading cause of emergency department (ED) visits for fatal and non-fatal injuries among adults 65 years old and older. We aimed to better understand the fall history, risk for further falls, and actions taken to prevent further falls among this higher fall risk population. This cross-sectional study included older adults without cognitive impairment presenting to the Rhode Island Hospital ED from February to May 2017. Of the 76 participants, 35 self-reported no prior falls, and 41 self-reported at least one prior fall, of whom 20 fell on the day of ED presentation...

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...
