The November issue of ACP Hospitalist is online and includes stories on the following.
Top Hospitalists. Our sixth annual Top Docs issue profiles the best and brightest of your colleagues in hospital medicine from east to west, urban and rural areas, and academic and community hospitals.
Syncope units. Syncope accounts for nearly half a million hospital admissions per year, yet only about half of patients admitted for syncope are actually discharged with the condition as their primary diagnosis. Syncope units aim to make diagnosis more precise, use fewer tests and shorten length of stay.
The Brief Case. This collection of interesting patient cases submitted by hospitalist readers includes an account of drug-induced eosinophilic pneumonia, vancomycin-induced thrombocytopenia, and vesicular rash in a patient with myasthenia gravis.
