Vaping-Related Disease: A Challenge For Health Care Providers

The recent emergence of severe and even fatal vaping-related lung disease presents a challenge for health care providers, according to Sanjay Sethi, MD, professor and chief of the division of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine in the Department of Medicine in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo.

Sethi is an expert on lung disease, especially chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the respiratory effects of smoking and vaping. He has always been concerned about the potential toxicity of vaping-related lung disease in his practice at UBMD Internal Medicine, and he noted that the rising incidence is now causing some changes in the practice of health care providers.

Researchers Identify Focus Points To Reduce Opioid Overdose Deaths

A new study identifies specific locations where medication and harm reduction services for people with opioid use disorder should be available in order to have the greatest impact on reducing opioid overdose deaths. Led by researchers at Boston Medical Center's Grayken Center for Addiction, the data show that more than half of those who died of an opioid overdose in Massachusetts encountered the health care, public health and/or criminal justice systems within the 12 months prior to their fatal overdose. These results, published in Drug and Alcohol Dependence, provide a roadmap to better reach these individuals at high risk of overdose and provide treatment and harm reduction services in order to reduce the number of overdose deaths.

For this retrospective cohort study, researchers set out to determine how and where individuals encounter the health care, criminal justice and public heal

Nearly 3 In 4 Americans Say It's Easier To Go To The Emergency Room Than To Get A Doctor's Appointment

The emergency room (ER) is the default choice for most Americans when they need medical care. Nearly 3 in 4 Americans (73%) think it is easier to go to the ER than to get a doctor's appointment, according to a new independent study from Zocdoc.

This attitude toward health care is driven by long wait times, given the average 24-day wait time to see a primary care physician in the U.S. Zocdoc's research found that even though 84% of Americans have an established relationship with a primary care physician, the majority (65%) would still visit the ER if they couldn't get in to see a doctor at the office quickly enough. Younger generations like Millennials (ages 25-39) and Gen Z (ages 18-24) were even more likely to do so (71% and 69%, respectively).

The study also found that 1 in 3 Americans (33%) had gone to the ER for non-urgent me

In the emergency department, every day brings a different crisis. Fortunately, health care professionals have the skills, training and resources necessary to deliver lifesaving care.

But what happens when the resources, even the basics of electricity or running water aren't available?
