Diagnosing Secondary Hypertension - January 1, 2003 - American Family Physician
Secondary hypertension is elevated blood pressure that results from an underlying, identifiable, often correctable cause.Only about 5 to 10 percent of hypertension cases are thought to result from secondary causes.The ABCDE mnemonic can be used to help determine a secondary cause of hypertension: Accuracy of diagnosis, obstructive sleep Apnea, Aldosteronism, presence of renal artery Bruits (suggesting renal artery stenosis), renal parenchymal disease (Bad kidneys), excess Catecholamines, Coarctation of the aorta, Cushing's syndrome, Drugs, Diet, excess Erythropoietin, and Endocrine disorders.An algorithm showing the general strategy to help screen for factors involved in secondary hypertension is presented.Routine urinalysis, complete blood cell count, blood chemistry profile (potassium, sodium, creatinine, fasting glucose, fasting lipid levels), and a 12-lead electrocardiogram are recommended for all patients with hypertension.

Appropriate Prescribing of Oral Beta-Lactam Antibiotics - August 1, 2000 - American Family Physician
EDWARD M. ONUSKO, M.DUniversity of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Cincinnati, OhioBeta-lactam antibiotics include penicillins, cephalosporins and related compounds.As a group, these drugs are active against many gram-positive, gram-negative and anaerobic organisms.Information based on expert opinion and antimicrobial susceptibility testing supports certain antibiotic choices for the treatment of common infections, but less evidence-based literature is available to guide treatment decisions.Evidence in the literature supports the selection of amoxicillin as first-line antibiotic therapy for acute otitis media.Alternative drugs, such as amoxicillin-clavulanate, trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole and cefuroxime axetil, can be used to treat resistant infections.Penicillin V remains the drug of choice for the treatment of pharyngitis caused by group A streptococci.
