What's the fast track system at an er?

What's the fast track system at an er?

For noncritical case: This usually involves triaging patients needing urgent care for noncritical illnesses presenting to the er. Once determined noncritical, these folks are fast-tracked to a separate area of the er staffed with urgent-care providers--pediatricians, internist, nurse practitioner, physician assistant etc.. Who can quickly assess, treat, and plan for discharging you. Dont use er for nonemergent illness. ...Read more

I recently got over having Gastritis but I am still bloated after meals. Why is this and what can I do to get my digestive system back on track?

Gastritis: If you are feeling bloated try to drink and eat non gas producing products. A lactose free diet and probiotics may help. It may depend on the cause of your gastritis. Temporary Zantac (ranitidine) may also help. All the best. ...Read more

Is there any system for tracking how many CT scans you can have every year since I am moving across the country?

Is there any system for tracking how many CT scans you can have every year since I am moving across the country?

Number: There is no limit on the number of ct scans you can have. If you need the imaging studies they should be performed. However, all physicians should try to limit the number of exams you need and repeat only as necessary. There is radiation exposure with a ct scan and you always want to limit this as much as possible. No need to repeat if all you need is a copy of the exam. ...Read more

I : I am definately confused by how you are taking your flagyl. If you missed a dose, the recommendation is that you take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Just go without that dose, if if is almost time for the next scheduled dose. Don't double up to make up for the dose you missed. Are you are electing to stop taking your medication for the rest of today, so that you can drink alcohol? The answer to your question, is that it is medically contraindicated for you to drink alcohol tonight. You should not drink while you are taking Metronidazole and for at least 3 days after you stop taking it. Mixing alcohol with Flagyl can cause nausea and vomiting, you can feel hot and get red. It can also cause your heart to race. I recommend that you take your medication as it was prescribed. ...Read more

I don't take hormone pills , but I take the shot , they told me  that I should start loosing weight when my hormones get back on track it's been 3 mon?

Start now: Losing weight is always difficult. Don't give up. We see 5-6 pounds of water weight with shot and that should be back to normal. Your cycles may take up to a year to normalize. That doesn't mean you won't have a cycle but don't be surprised if they are light or irregular. Losing weight always means reducing the calories. Get started now making lifestyle changes. Dont wait, get started now. ...Read more

On bc pill. Had sex 3 wks ago. Keep track of period (same as usual) usually last 6-7 days but only 4 days this time. Could it be implantation?

On bc pill. Had sex 3 wks ago. Keep track of period (same as usual) usually last 6-7 days but only 4 days this time. Could it be implantation?

Unlikely: Women on birth control pills are unlikely to conceive, and without conception, there is no embryo for implantation. If worried, one can check a home urine pregnancy test. They give a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after having a "weird" withdrawal period, or after missing a withdrawal period. ...Read more

How do I get my period back on track after missing 2 days of pills, and now I have my period heavy. Not supposed to have it for 2 more weeks.

More pills: usually when you miss pills the lack of hormones causes bleeding. I would double up on the pills the 2 days after missing them then go back to normal schedule. Likely that will fix the problem ...Read more
