Welcome to the Show
Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up in this week’s episode, we look at a disease called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome. I chat with two people from the RSDS Association about this disorder including a nurse who’s been living with this disease for quite some time.
We’ll also have a segment on pediatric dentistry and what it can mean for nurses who interact with pediatric patients or their parents. We’ll have that and more later in this episode after the news.
If you want to get back in touch with me, please drop me an email. You can send those e-mails in to NursingShow@Gmail.com. I love to hear from you and I make sure I respond back to every email that comes in. Send me links to news items you’d like me to cover, interview suggestions with you or somebody you know.
Also, a special thank you to Physio-Control and the American Heart Association and their excellent CPR resources for a special partnership supporting this episode of the podcast. That’s it. I will have more contact information coming up later on in this episode. Let’s get into this week’s news items coming right up!
Coming up right now is a segment with someone from the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry to share a variety of important ways parents can both recognize potential problems for their children’s oral health and outline the actions they can take to prevent any issues. Check it out.
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy, also known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), is a chronic neuropathic pain condition that can arise from trauma of any kind. It can be the result of something as minor as a blood draw that initiates a reaction. The condition arises more frequently than many emergency physicians may realize: roughly 3 percent of patients suffering a Colles fracture develop CRPS. Often the traumatic event cannot be remembered, and CRPS has been associated with trauma happening anywhere from a day to a year after the event. Its most consistent feature, however, is how often physicians and other health professionals fail to make the diagnosis on initial presentation. Check out this interview that will teach you more about this rare illness and how to help recognize it in your patients.
