Rocky Mountain Poison Center Staff Discuss Legalized Pot in Colorado
Dr. Eric Lavonas,  associate director of the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center, discussed the situation with legalized cannabis in Colorado on 710KNUS in Denver.

Dr. Lavonas also touched on the problem of users “stacking” doses of ed...

The impact of a heart failure educational program for physicians varies based upon physician specialty.
CONCLUSIONS: There was no difference in BB titration rates following an HF training intervention for physicians compared to historical controls. However, FM physicians had a greater change in prescribing practices compared to IM physicians. Educational programs targeting FM physicians may benefit HF patients and could potentially lead to greater adherence to clinical guidelines related to BB use and address gaps in providing HF care.

The Social Health Intervention Project (SHIP): Protocol for a randomized controlled clinical trial assessing the effectiveness of a brief motivational intervention for problem drinking and intimate partner violence in an urban emergency department
DiscussionWhile screening and intervention for intimate partner violence is now recommended for women of child bearing age in health care settings, there is a need for rigorous evaluations of what works for whom. Upon completion, we will have high-quality evidence regarding the effectiveness of a low-intensity, brief motivational intervention, delivered by social workers in the Emergency Department setting, for decreasing episodes of heavy drinking and intimate partner violence. Ultimately, this is a model could be generalizable to other acute health care settings.Trial Registration: ClinicalTrials.gov Registration Number:...

Management of the acute painful crisis in sickle cell disease‐ a re‐evaluation of the use of opioids in adult patients
The objective of this article is to evaluate the evidence for use of opioids in APC management. We have highlighted the possibilities for improving management by using alternatives to morphine, and intranasal (IN) or transmucosal routes of administration for rapid onset of analgesia in the emergency department (ED). We suggest how experience gained in managing acute sickle pain in children could be extrapolated to adolescents and young adults. We have also questioned whether patients given strong opioids in the acute setting are being safely monitored and what resources are required to ensure efficacy, safety and patient s...

Aggressive and acute periodontal diseases
Abstract Inflammatory periodontal diseases are highly prevalent, although most of these diseases develop and progress slowly, often unnoticed by the affected individual. However, a subgroup of these diseases include aggressive and acute forms that have a relatively low prevalence but show a rapid‐course, high rate of progression leading to severe destruction of the periodontal tissues, or cause systemic symptoms that often require urgent attention from healthcare providers. Aggressive periodontitis is an early‐onset, destructive disease that shows a high rate of periodontal progression and distinctive clinical features...
