I am covering ICU's right now and not in clinic. Your PCP should be able to handle this. If not, I can get you in next week. I do not post or lurk often, just had some down time on call to check the OT this morning and came back to see if things were being handled. I will check back tomorrow in ...

Did the inhaler help your cough on the previous occasion? Is your cough worst at night? Did you have asthma or eczema as a child? Do any of your children have asthma or eczema? Did anyone in the house have a recent viral upper respiratory syndrome? How old are you?
The most common thing I se...

Trying to simplify a very complex deal here.
LSU took over the old charity system years ago. The hospitals were losing tons of money. Then the state decides to privatize the LSU/Charity system in hopes of losing less money.
Two big privatization players were OLOL in BR and Children's in NOLA...

Did it with the kids 2 years ago. Pontoon boat and live bait only on our trip. Plenty of bass, but not worth the money and not much sport in it. I suspect you could arrange a better trip than we had.
I am more interested in fishing the peacock bass in the canal around the airports....

First, prayers to you and your family.
Squamous cell can originate in or spread to the "bronchial tubes". The proximity in the bronchial tubes and the lymph node stage determine whether he is an operative candidate, a neoadjuvant chemo candidate (i.e. give chemo to shrink and then resect) or a c...

Not "data", just an impressive list of docs that trained at EKL in internal medicine. Multiply it across multiple specialties and sites across the state and even you may be able to appreciate that supporting residency programs may be a good idea for the state as a whole. This was posted by me prev...

To la bird
Keeping a minimum number of beds licensed is a requirement to maintaining funding for outpatient enterprises. LSU operates multiple clinics in the Baton Rouge area in addition to EKL. If EKL closes completely, the funding mechanism for the clinics is lost. http://theadvocate.com/home...

Disclaimer: Although I am an LSU doc, because I have been on the "privatization" side of resident education and clinical care for 4 years, I am not impacted personally by these cuts; many persons that I respect greatly will be.
The implications of the closures go far beyond just indigent care as ...

I chartered a catamaran this past July and did several islands over five days from the boat. Pretty cool deal. Husband is the captain, wife is the cook/first mate. All meals included and they were great. Was cool to be able to see multiple islands on the same trip on our own schedule. We used t...

I would buy or build an oil rig near the green canyon. I would have a means of driving my boats to store under the rig with lifts. There would be a 36 center console and an express. I would have the ability to dive my rig and get back on easily. I would fly my chopper out there for the weekend a...

Just looked at Hilton's. Using the chlorophyll (the true color images are poor):
From cocodrie it looks like SS 300 to SS 283.
From Fourchon, it is 7 miles south of the circle rigs and then heads north as you move east. The images from the east have some cloud cover, so I cannot tell.

Remember to put the patch on the night before and DO NOT let her rub her eyes!
Bonine will work, but also take the night before for best effect.
Ginger is not a bad addition.
For the oh shite moment, phenergan or zofran work. Phenergan can be compounded as a topical if pucking is an issue.....
