CCFP 105 Topics: Pneumonia
Today we shall be talking about Pneumonia! What an exciting topic. According to Dr William Osler considered to be the “father of modern medicine” and who trained at McGill, pneumonia is known as “the old man’s friend” he wrote, “"Pneumonia may well be called the friend of the aged. Taken off by it in an acute, not often painful illness, the old man escapes those 'cold gradations of decay' so distressing to himself and his friends.” Dr. Olser himself died from complications of pneumonia. Pneumonia has a fascinating history as it has been with humanity for many centuries. Symptoms of pneumonia were first described by Hippocrates around 460 BC, but it wasn’t until the 19th century that doctors were aware pneumonia was its own condition and not a symptom of another disease. Interesting tidbits of pneumonia related history, Dr. Edwin Klebs was the first person to observe bacteria causing pneumonia under the microscope in 1875 and the bacterial genus klebsiella was named after him. Strep pneumonia, commonest cause of CAP was the first bacteria to be gram stained to distinguish gram positive from gram negative bacteria by Hans Christian Gram in 1884. Hence the name “Gram” stain. The Spanish Flu in 1918, which was an H1N1 influenza A pandemic, killed more people than the first world war in combat, resulting in approximately 20-50 million deaths, and was the second most deadly pandemic on record. In comparison, Covid19 worldwide deaths stand at around 7 million according to the WHO in November 2023. Alright, we could talk all day about pneumonia history, but its time to focus on CCFP objectives for pneumonia!

CCFP 105 Topics: Trauma - Part I
Authors: Veronica Oczkowski (MS4) and Andrea Brabant (rFM PGY-2) Content Expert and Reviewer: Dr. Matt Strickland According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than nine people die every minute from injuries or violence. A total of 5.8 million people of all ages and economic groups die every year from unintentional injuries and violence. The burden of injury accounts for 18% of the world’s total diseases. Motor vehicle crashes alone cause more than 1 million deaths annually and an estimated 20 million to 50 million significant injuries; they are the leading cause of death due to injury worldwide.  Traumatic presentations are unfortunately quite common, so it’s important we get comfortable with a strong approach. Our goal today is in no way to complete an exhaustive review. That being said, we did our best to prepare a brief overview that allows us to cover the CCFP objectives. Get ready. This is a pretty robust topic to cover, so buckle up!!

CCFP 105 Topics: Obesity
Obesity Canada published a guideline in 2020 that we will be referring to a lot in this episode. It defines obesity as a chronic, progressive and relapsing disease characterized by the presence of adiposity that impairs health and social well-being.    So today you’ll learn what you need to know for the exam, but also some practical considerations for real life visits that take into account the pressures of diet culture, and how we as physicians can provide evidence based advice that doesn’t isolate and judge our patients. And because we know language matters, you’ll hear us use terms like “large bodies”, instead of saying someone is fat. There are advocates who have reclaimed the term fat, but today we’ll stick with medical jargon and terms aimed to avoid stigma.

CCFP 105 Topics: Loss of Consciousness
Syncope = a brief loss of consciousness and postural tone that resolves spontaneously with a return to baseline neurological function within seconds or a few minutes. Presyncope = near LOC. Should be worked up the same as we know it portends a similar risk of downstream badness as syncope. presyncope is “I almost lost consciousness and then recovered” → more of acute thing. The final common pathway of syncope is the same regardless of the underlying cause. In general, 10 seconds of interrupted blood flow to the brain.

CCFP 105 Topics: Meningitis
Written By: Andrea Brabant – FM PGY1 - NWT Expert Review By: Dr Katherine Breen, ER Physician NWT Meningitis is defined as inflammation of the meninges, the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. It is most commonly due to infection, either bacterial or viral. This can happen through hematogenous spread, when bacteria invade the bloodstream (often from the upper airway), and gradually make their way to the subarachnoid space.  However, it can also happen through direct contiguous spread. This is when organisms gain entry into the cerebrospinal fluid from adjacent infections (think sinusitis, brain abscess, otitis media) or directly through penetrating traumatic injury, congenital defects, or during neurosurgical procedures.

CCFP 105 Topics: Personality Disorders
Written By: Shaila Gunn, FM PGY2, Calgary AB Expert Review: Dr Darby Ewashina, ER Psychiatrist, Calgary AB @doc.darbs on Instagram   Why should a family physician learn about personality disorders? Well, to start, we are the first point of contact with the patients who have them, and often the first to recognize they have a personality disorder. While psychiatrists may have a role in their treatment, most patients do not require a referral, making family doctors the primary provider of care. Even if you do not plan on managing the personality disorder, you WILL have patients with personality disorders and this podcast will help you effectively manage challenging situations.   Personality disorders make up over 10% of the general population, and 24% of the population in primary care. They may or may not seek treatment for aspects pertaining to their personality disorder, but they sure as well will have other health concerns.

CCFP 105 Topics: Low Back Pain
Written By: Christopher Clarke, FM PGY2, Victoria BC Expert Review: Dr Jaques De Jager, GP, CFB Edmonton AB We are talking Low Back Pain. Amanda is a 32 year old Search and Rescue Technician with the Royal Canadian Airforce based out of Canadian Forces Base - Comox here on the island. Two days ago, she was on a mission med-evacing a patient from a fishing vessel of the coast.    She and her fellow SAR - Tech were able to stabilize the patient for transport. However, upon bending over to lift the stretcher, Amanda felt an immediate sharp pain her in lumbar spine. Upon returning home for her days off, despite taking Tylenol, which offered little relief, she stayed mainly in bed because the pain was so intense.   She presents to sick parade on Monday at the base clinic, because the pain has not resolved and now she is having some pain radiate down her right leg.   When it comes to back pain, I find it useful to consider timelines as this can help to guide our differential and management.   Definitions ●        Acute back pain: 4 weeks ●        Subacute back pain: 4-12 weeks ●        Chronic back pain: >12 weeks

CCFP 105 Topics: Lacerations
Written By: Jessica Dawson , FM PGY2 in Edmonton       Expert Review By: Dr. Brent Crawford, an Emergency Medicine physician at Westview Health Center in Stony Plain Alberta.   Lacerations come in many shapes and flavours - big ones, little ones, simple ones, dirty ones, bloody ones, complicated ones - . . .you get it. As family physicians we tend to encounter accidental lacerations (as opposed to incisions of our own making) most often in emergency medicine or urgent care, but we will also see a lot of lacerations in follow up. Lacerations are one of those topics where art, science and personal preference tend to collide. There is enormous practice variation between physicians - probably in part because there is an absence of evidence for and lot of dogma behind many common practices.  We will focus on the fundamentals for the CCFP exam – the things you need to know to put back together the most common lacerations you’ll encounter, and to identify those situations where referral might be necessary or when it’s best not to close things up at all!  There are some great links in the show notes you can reference with tips and tricks for repairing different types of lacerations and deep dives into the evidence.
