Gout: Diagnosis and treatment
Although the incidence of gout is increasing worldwide, there are many misconceptions about the diagnosis and treatment of gout. The two attached videos can be used to inform medical students, residents in family practice, internal medicine, orthopedic surgery, emergency medicine, psychiatry residents as well as practicing physicians about gout. Allied health professionals including nurses, nurse practitioners and physicians assistants will also find the videos helpful.
The second video I review the causes of gout and show several pictures to demonstrate what an acute attack can look like. The recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of gout are reviewed. At the end of the video a site that provides more pictures is given and several references are listed for those who want to learn more.
