"Back to health matters presented by SSM health voice of Saint Louis MO acts this is Kmart self editor Fred bottom are early on in the corona virus pandemic many of us were afraid to go to the doctor's office or clinic or the hospital or the ER hearing we might pick up the corona virus but health officials say that's not the case anymore here to talk with us about that is doctor Michelle Phillips Dr Phillips is the medical director for SSM health cardinal Glennon pediatrics primary care clinics thank you Philip thanks for joining us thank you for having me thank you for the ups if we have to take your child to a clinic what sort of safety precautions are being taken so I'm we're doing lots of things hopefully to prepare for the safe return of our patients we're ready thing to look a little bit different but one of the things that we're doing and nationally A. R. the health screenings so certainly all patients visitors and staff for that matter screen for symptoms of the current novel coronavirus and then we also have temperature checked prior to entering our buildings that and that is true of all of our staff and physicians to so we'll do that prior to coming into the office for work what about social distancing and masking so masking is everyone coming to our clinics and hospitals is required to Merrick where some sort of mask or face covering to protect our staff our physicians and care providers and other patients that are going to be coming to PS if you don't have one certainly will provide one for you social distancing also a very important piece as we know these these viruses are spread person to person by close contact so we want to maintain that social distancing where we can so we're doing a few things one of which were avoiding use of our waiting rooms where it's possible and we're trying not to have people congregating in these areas so immediately rooming them upon their arrival it in those areas where we need to utilize waiting rooms you'll see some changes there are some things are rearranged to make sure that we have signs and things in place to make sure people are maintaining that appropriate physical distance scene and we're also limiting the number of patients that are scheduled around the same time period again to ensure that we have the room availability to allow us to maintain that proper distance and we're also trying to keep our well patients separated from our sick patients so if we have patients that were concerned potentially might have corona virus we're trying to keep those patients either in different hours of operations of our clinics or in separate hallways to keep them from coming into any potential contact with our healthy patient so if you're taking your child to the clinic for some sort of a medical concern there is a very minimum chance that they can pick up the virus berry minimum gas and and certainly even to that to that point Dan calling our office the initial phone call we're doing the screens to figure out you know what's the reason for the visit were asking about potential sentence in those patients any known exposures that that families have had that we we know we're the proper place for this patient to be seen and what precautions do we need to be taking to make sure that they're not scheduled or have any potential contact with some of our healthy well patients so that all comes after the pre registration stage correct yeah so pre registration I think it's important to collect that information and make sure that we're directing patients to the appropriate place for care but also we're attempting to collect all the necessary information in advance as far as pre registration and pre registration so that we're limiting the also the contact the monistat that that families have to come in contact with while they're at the office so that we can immediately ran them working in verbal consent where that practice is appropriate so really trying to limit touch points what about visitation policy so medication policy we are still asking that only one parent or guardian or you know it doesn't mean that the parents have have given permission to bring their child a company that child to the office visit again the point there is to limit the number of visitors at our facilities and and limit any potential exposures that may be there as you know some some patients are walking around without symptoms and fill up the potential to possibly spread the virus so we're trying to be as safe as we can if you bring your child in are you allowed to go with your child yes so we do ask that it's just one parent but I think you know what technologies these days we also have other we have the technology available if both parents want to be a part of the visit absolutely having phones available to face time we now have telehealth available to so we can we have the the ability to bring up an audio visual visit so we can we can have both parents involved but we ask that just one parent accompany the child into the building and enter that room to limit exposures are you seeing an increased use of telehealth options these days yes certainly you know as as restrictions started coming out and we were able to get our telehealth platforms up and running we were we were starting to see a big increase in that telehealth platform thankfully as we've we've we've been able to put more the safety precautions in the clinics and assuring our families that we're doing everything we can to make sure that they're they're safe when they're attending clinic visits we are starting to see more people come come in person and making sure they're staying up to date on immunizations but we do still have telehealth available for those that aren't comfortable coming into the office yet or have other barriers that may keep them from coming in so that's that's been a really great thing to come of that that we have that platform that we can see patients with we're talking with doctor Michelle Phillips Dr Phillips is the medical director at cardinal Glennon pediatric primary care doctor Phillips let's talk about the enhanced cleaning of the rooms of the instruments used what what are you doing there yes so certainly we've you know we've always practice and good disinfecting procedures that we're being extra cautious there so making sure that we're disinfecting everything more off and making sure that we have you know any touch points all door handles all the equipment as you mentioned we're also limiting what's actually in the rooms where we're seeing the patients we know children are kind of tend to wanna be curious in gravel lots of things so we tried to move all of those potential objects that don't need to be in the room out of the room and making sure that we're doing enhance cleaning procedures after each patient and certainly at the end of the day doing more enhance cleaning and disinfection just to keep trying again keep our patients safe we also have designated rooms that will use that you know we can shut down if needed if there's anything if we're needing to get a medication that might increase these respiratory droplets in a sick patient for instance we we are shutting those rooms down for an appropriate amount of time prior to disinfecting them appropriately to make sure that we're not bringing I help the patient or another patient into that room Dr Phillips what do you want parents to know about the risk of coronavirus and kids so what I think is is really important to know is that you know certainly the sentence can be really highly variable and and and children especially many of them are a symptomatic or having very very mild symptoms it's unusual that we're seeing severe illness with this novel coronavirus and children stating I think that that's really important the biggest thing is just you know making sure that were or washing our hands having your children sing the ABC's to make sure the thing them long enough trying keep them away from.

at long cancer and we'll find out about a new partnership between SSM health and a nonprofit corporation to deal with generic drug shortages but first let's start the show the way we always do with our co host actor Fred buckled doctor buckled is a slew care general internist at SSM health Saint Louis University hospital doctor buckled good to see again was there wanted to start out by talking with you about a new warning from health officials in the state of Illinois they're alerting residents about a potentially deadly fungus that sweeping through the state it's called candida orris in the last three years that we've been counting and keeping track of the individual cases we've had two hundred and seventy confirm two cases and for probable cases Canada or is is a fungus that can cause serious infections it's noteworthy that it's often resistant to medications and it does spread around in in health care settings post acute care facilities nursing homes but most people are at very low risk of infection there are anti fungal medications that are useful in treating this of fungal infection there's some anti fungal drugs that don't work but the majority of cases here in Illinois have been susceptible to anti fungal that's doctor in Gaza Izzy case she's the director of the Illinois department of public health that's a buckle tell us more about candida orris give it is is a fungus and and fungus is just a small species of similar to the bacteria but from a kind of a different animal family or different family biologically that that can cause infections in the right situation so we see patients or L. they haven't action you know as I've said before it almost always most common thing is is a viral infection there's bacterial infections in bacteria are usually one cell organisms that that can infect the body and cause problems that's the bulk of what we see we treat patients in the hospital for infections and then kind of more infrequently in rare is is fungal infections and you know we all are exposed to this fungal crease spores are in the air we breathe there are common just if you come ones are common in the United States differ regions became as common all across the country in to these manifest all our at a couple different scenarios one is when we have patients on antibiotics for a long amount of time for whatever reason right or wrong and you know the end about it does a good job kind of eliminating or reducing the number of different bacteria and you know kind of like a damn that's leaking and you put a a a a figure in one hole you know another whole tends to pop up and that's what fun guy do you take care of all and kill a lot of bacteria our bodies are what warm environments and that's what fungus likes and they tend to proliferate sets that most common way we see it there's also a big area for where patients are either really ill and and they've been ill for a long time in their muted system is compromised or not functioning very well or you know maybe they've had a transplant to deliver our our can you transplant or a bone marrow transplant in there on steroids right other medicines you can reduce the auction of they were immune system and that's also environment we see Canada quite a bit and there's some more common ones and there's ones are a little bit more rare and the rare runs to tend to be a little bit more resistant to our common drive so we used to treat us a bit more gnarly to take care of kind of a rule one night when I teach in the house will take care of patients is if you're sick enough to get became infection typically there's exceptions this is you eat eat your body's been yo L. for sometime so this is not something that healthy robust person typically gets either people have a lot of chronic conditions and they've been encountering the healthcare system more like they've been on antibiotics more than once over the course of the last year or some other time frame like that six months are there symptoms you know it's the same thing is just with any other faction you know you you know people may feel ill they may feel like they have a fever they you know if they're severe infections what gets as worried as you know they're they're not only feeling well but the blood pressure may be low they really just show signs of severe infection I mean it's nothing specific to having a fungus is just really the way we kind of talk about it and and and treated is just if we have a high index of suspicion she was always been I am back for awhile or there me to suppress we tend to at least consider that and and check for it and best form of prevention had well I mean that the the Keller thing is I'll be sack but you know wash your hands do the normal things that are quite good again these are things that just you are probably in our body anyway they just the tender just manifest when you know we suppress other types of bugs in the body so to speak or people just are are pretty L. healthy person walking around is not going to get a fungal infection typically there's an exception of course but it's it would be an unusual we're talking with doctor Fred buckled he's a slew care general internist SSM health Saint Louis University hospital live it later on the show we're going to talk with the cardiologists about a new study regarding stance and bypass surgery but I want to give you a chance as a general internist to tell us what you think about this study that we're going to hear about what do you study shows not Stenson bypasses might be premature for people with severe but stable heart disease from clogged arteries Dr Judith Hochman of NYU school of medicine we just had a discussion about this it's late breaking clinical trial sessions at the American heart association meetings and the panelists agreed that this would be practiced changing and would lead to lower uses stance especially in patients who don't have symptoms for non emergency cases the study shows there's no need to rush into invasive procedures medication and lifestyle changes could be just as beneficial Tom Foley CBS news as a general internist what's your reaction well this isn't surprising at all in fact my argument and and again general internists we we love to need our cardiology college just because it's fun but the there's been no study that showed that this was ever effective so you're what I say this I mean doing an intervention and putting a stent and for people that have what we call stable corners so what that means is you know if you feel healthy and fine and all said you're having chest pain and you go to the house would you say you don us with a heart attack that's pretty standard we have a very standard approach to deal with this you need to you know depend on the situation of an urgent or OR emergence are catheterization what we call an intervention which is just kind of opening up the pipe so to speak but in that dad's say every time you mow the yard you have a little bit of pain you stop mowing the yard you don't have pain we call that stable disease meaning that we can predict when it occurs you know when it's going to Kerr and you know there's never been any trial ever done that shows that doing anything about this other than the tree with medicine has a fact with a couple small kind of specific exemptions and so you know for general interest myself who treats us quite a bit is is this is this is to be expected it's all over the twitterverse about you know this debate and and a lot of people in kind of my camp feel strongly right well this is no surprise and nothing that it's been known for at least ten years from our perspective so it's an interesting it's it's interesting to the study and it's another one it's just going to prove that and again I think it really just shows how great the therapies we have a route are right now you know a Staten you know what the cholesterol medicines that are out daily aspirin when you have disease blood pressure management really talking about smoking cessation I mean these things are huge and they they really do a phenomenal job of reducing disease such that young caresses these be the number one killer in the United States house number two and that's really because of the medical profession and lifestyle regions and and policy and such so you know it's it's a big win for the country it was a lot of work to do but it this it just confers a point one final one for you and I guess it's the big question of the coming week I with thanksgiving coming up the question is do you cheat don't you cheat thanksgiving day be a cheat day.
