Syringe Technique: With the patient in a sitting position, the physician places a 5 or 10 ml syringe between the posterior upper and lower molars or gums on the affected side. The patient is asked to gently bite down and grasp the syringe as the patient is instructed to roll the syringe back and forth, resulting in the reduction of the dislocated TMJ.
An exacerbation of COPD is defined as an event characterized by dyspnea and/or cough and sputum that worsen over < 14 days. Exacerbations of COPD are often associated with increased local and systemic inflammation caused by airway infection, pollution, or other insults to the lungs.
If you take care of sick patients, you owe it to them to learn POCUS. You will save lives!
