Short on time but hungry for knowledge? Curbsiders’ Journal Club gives you the speedy article analysis you crave. We provide brief summaries of recent research and news items in the field of internal medicine, so you can save time and stay on top of the literature. On this episode, we were joined by Kashlak Memorial’s very own Chair of Medicine, Dr. Robert Centor AKA @medrants on Twitter or “Uncle Bob” to the Curbsider Crew. This month’s topics include: estimating atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk, whether CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) effectively rules out pulmonary embolism, discharging low risk patients with pulmonary embolism from the ED, metformin and risk of acidosis in patients with CKD, treating opioid use disorder after a nonfatal overdose, Canagliflozin and renal protection in type 2 diabetes, screening for diabetes among patients below age 40, and the association between nose-picking and staphylococcus. ACP members can claim free CME-MOC at acponline.com/curbsiders (goes live 0900 EST on podcast release date).
