DOT & Employment Physicals – Summit Urgent Care

Federal law requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles (DMVs) to receive regular physical examinations. These exams are defined as the “Department of Transportation Medical Examinations.” DOT physicals are highly regulated for the drivers’ safety. They detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can affect a driver’s ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle. DOT medical examiners are specially trained to understand the regulations and prevent drivers from being inappropriately disqualified.

Heinz Hartmann

Heinz Hartmann - Heinz Hartmann’s ego psychology influenced a whole generation of psychoanalysts. Considered a major figure in the second generation of psychoanalysts after Freud, Hartmann was challenged to fulfill Freud’s hope to create a general psychoanalytic psychology. He emphasized the independence of ego processes versus drive, and the role of external reality. In his writings there are few clinical observations as he felt that it was important to develop a conceptual framework that illustrated a general theory.

Mobile Health integrated in future healthcare systems.

Hello Community, I have been wondering how new technologies in mobile health can revolutionize our european healthcare systems and what incentives governments and large organizations need to drive mobile health technology solutions to make a difference. I also had the pleasure to be CEO of a mobile health technology startup called Comoray AB, over the past year, in Sweden. Now, in the process to start something new (possibly in the field of mobile driven Electronic Medical Record / Electronic Health Record systems). I would like to get some feedback from communities and student how YOU consider the current healthcare system changing.

How can you identify a COPD patient who relies on hypoxic drive?

It has been suggested that clinicians are occasionally hesitant and even fearful when prescribing oxygen for the CO2-retaining COPD patient because of concerns over increasing hypercapnia. We have been taught that prescribing oxygen does more good than harm if a patient is clearly distressed and should not be denied to any COPD patient in the ED, as only ~5% rely on hypoxic drive to ventilate. How can we recognise the patients who actually rely on hypoxic drive?
