2022 Baylor Scott & White Concussion Education Course [IEM-X]
Concussion treatment has largely been absent from guidelines and research. There are an estimated 1.8 to 3.6 million sport-related concussions per year, yet many youth and high school athletes get poor or no treatment.

2024 Moving Beyond Teamwork in the Operating Room to Facilitating Mutual Professional Respect
Psychological safety enables the interpersonal risk-taking necessary for providing safer patient care in the operating room (OR). Limited studies look at psychological safety in the OR from the perspectives of each highly specialized team member. Therefore, we investigated each member’s perspective on the factors that influence psychological safety in the OR. Interviews were conducted with operative team members of a level 1 trauma center in central Texas. The interviews were transcribed, de-identified, and coded by two investigators independently, and thematic analysis was performed. Responses were collected from 21 participants representing all surgical team roles (attending surgeons, attending anesthesiologists, circulating nurses, nurse anesthetists, scrub techs, and residents). Circulating nurse responses were redacted for confidentiality (n = 1). Six major themes influencing psychological safety in the OR were identified. Psychological safety is essential to better, safer patient care. Establishing a climate of mutual respect and suspended judgment in an OR safe for learning will lay the foundation for achieving psychological safety in the OR. Team exercises in building rapport and mutual understanding are important starting points.

2024 Monkeypox: Another Pandemic in the Making
Monkeypox is a zoonotic disease caused by the monkeypox virus, which is a member of the Poxviridae family of viruses. It is transmitted through direct or indirect contact with fluid secretions. Initial symptoms include fever, chills, headache, and malaise, followed by a maculopapular rash that starts on the face and progresses centrifugally. Polymerase chain reaction is the preferred laboratory test for the diagnosis, and management is mostly supportive. The clinical presentation of monkeypox is quite similar to that of another member of the Poxviridae family: smallpox, which wreaked havoc in the 20th century, before being eradicated with the help of the vaccinia virus vaccine in 1977. This vaccine protects not only against smallpox but also monkeypox; therefore, when use of this vaccine was discontinued, monkeypox had a new susceptible population to infect and way to proliferate and evolve. Initially the disease spread in Africa, but now the more evolved monkeypox is quickly spreading to other countries. On July 23, 2022, the World Health Organization declared this multicountry outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. Given its mutating ability and high transmissibility, we need to quickly devise measures to control this virus before it turns into a pandemic.

2024 Updates on Enhanced Recovery after Surgery protocols for plastic surgery of the breast and future directions
Perioperative pain control is an important component of any plastic surgery practice. Due to the incorporation of Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) protocols, reported pain level, opioid consumption, and hospital length of stay numbers have decreased significantly. This article provides an up-to-date review of current ERAS protocols in use, reviews individual aspects of ERAS protocols, and discusses future directions for the continual improvement of ERAS protocols and control of postoperative pain.

2024 The potential impact of computed tomography coronary calcium score screening on patients with dyslipidemia
Coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring helps determine whether patients with known coronary artery disease (CAD) should initiate medical management by predicting future cardiac event risk. CAC scoring is underutilized because many insurance companies consider it experimental. This study aims to determine whether CAC screening of patients at risk for CAD can decrease the risk of myocardial infarction and improve survival.

2024 Management dilemmas in restarting anticoagulation after gastrointestinal bleeding
Systemic anticoagulants are widely prescribed to prevent and treat thromboembolism, among other indications. A common com-plication of using these agents is gastrointestinal bleeding. While early resumption of anticoagulants after the bleeding has resolved can increase the risk of rebleeding, delayed resumption puts the patient at increased risk of thromboembolic events and mortality. There is limited data on this topic to guide clinicians on resuming anticoagulation after hospitalization for gastrointestinal bleeding and to educate patients regarding the subsequent risks of recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding, thromboembolism, and mortality. The optimal time to resume anticoagulation is also unknown. This review summarizes the existing literature and available data on the commonly encountered dilemma of restarting anticoagulation therapy after hospitalization for gastrointestinal bleeding.

2024 A Concerning Trend in Geriatric Pharmacy Merits Evidence-Based Intervention
The effects of polypharmacy on geriatric populations are an emerging concern that merits more exploration. The primary goal of this review was to evaluate the current body of knowledge on polypharmacy and explore the preventive and corrective measures to avoid negative outcomes. Even if a medication has an appropriate indication, polypharmacy in the geriatric population is associated with an increased risk of drug-drug or drug-condition interactions. Recent efforts to prevent polypharmacy include the development of interprofessional teams in clinics dedicated to medication review and reconciliation, deprescription plans aimed to safely discontinue potentially inappropriate medications, and inpatient screening tools that provide prescribing recommendations. In conclusion, polypharmacy affects a high percentage of the geriatric population. Current efforts to address and prevent polypharmacy are ongoing but have not been widely adopted.
