Highlights from ACP Internist and ACP Hospitalist

ACP Hospitalist August 2017:

ACP Hospitalist July 2017:

  • Defeating C. diff
    While Clostridium difficile remains a stubborn infection, new drugs and research suggest ways to more effectively combat it.

ACP Internist September 2017:

  • To lie down, perchance to sleep
    Internists are good at picking up on obstructive sleep apnea, but chronic insomnia is underdiagnosed among a sleepy patient population.
  • Abdominal wall pain as its own diagnosis
    Internists can diagnose chronic abdominal wall pain with a simple physical exam and some savvy history taking, experts said, and reassure patients that their condition is not serious and may respond to treatment.
