Great cases on call

I’m running the on-call gauntlet.

I was on call Sat and Sun December 6,7

Sat December 13

Sat and Sun December 20,21

Thursday through Sunday December 25-28

four straight week-ends, with Christmas thrown in for the Jew. Ughh.

That said this week-end has had a few great cases:
  • IgM Cold-agglutinin hemolytic anemia in need of plasmapheresis.
  • Fluconazole induced hyperkalemia
  • Urinary obstruction induced electrogenic type 1 RTA (Hyperkalemic variety of type 1 RTA)
  • Primary hyperaldosteronism induced hypertensive emergency
I’ll elaborate on some (all) of these cases in the next few days.

Happy holidays
