District 14 Recap - January 16, 2019

Technology is always changing and improving. One innovation leads to more, all in the pursuit of improving health care and decreasing pains and stresses for the patients. District 14 hosted an event to discuss these various new technologies.


District 14 Recap - December 20, 2018

Doctors hear a wide range of stories from patients about their health. Sometimes the “stories” are reasons a patient didn’t complete their treatment plan— “I didn’t finish it because reason A or B happened.” Other times the stories are works of fiction that don’t add up with the numbers that come back from tests. These “stories” often hinder results so physicians are always hoping to find ways of helping a patient develop more personal responsibility and control that will assist patients and doctors see better results. 


District 14 Recap - June 20, 2018

DVT and PE blot clots are seen throughout all practices across the state. Several treatment options exist on how to treat the problem. This was the main lecture topic for District 14’s member event on Wed. June 20th at Harvest in Newtown.

The pharmaceutical sponsored dinner began with a lecture by cardiologist Ronald Fields, MD.  Dr. Fields discussed the various treatment options and newly released research. The district 14 members, which included a radiologist, an internist, and emergency room doctors, enhanced the lecture by discussing how they approach the symptoms when they are presented to them.  Do you send them for extra testing or just put them on anti-coagulated agent?  The group also discussed what happens in a traumatic situation and how in most cases a reversal agent is not needed because the various drugs clear the system within a day. Reversal agents are available as well.
