Skin With Kathy Nguyen – 596

Have questions about infections??? Joins as we discuss Skin with Kathy Nguyen

Who is Dr. Kathy Nguyen?

Dr. Kathy Nguyen is a primary care/sports medicine physician.  She is a team physician for multiple high schools, helps with colleges in the Houston area and is the team physician for the Houston Dash soccer team.

Skin With Kathy Nguyen

Do you know what is considered best practice and recommended by research?

As athletic trainers, we routinely see a variety of skin issues happening with our athletes.

Blisters: do you pop it or not?

Today on the podcast Dr. Nguyen relays to us the best practice in issues as common as blisters and as serious as tinea issues that may be resistant to topical antibiotics.

For example

At minute 2:10 on the podcast, Dr. Nguyen says she always recommends leaving the blister if possible.

Around 4 minutes on “Skin with Kathy Nguyen”, she discusses wound care specialist opinion on new skin growth and scarring.

What are truths and what are myths?

Through research and discussion with other wound care specialists, she helps us sift through what are considered old wives tales and gives us concrete reasons to refer a skin issue or lesion to a doctor.

We have discussed Dermatology and skin before:

Masters of Athletic Training Year 1- a look back -148

We are broadcasting live and interviewing the speakers of the Memorial Hermann's Sports Medicine Update.  Some of the recordings pick up noise, but this is a live event.

I will release the lecture and then the interview.  Through the course of the summer the podcasts will be shorter, more frequent, and a lot more raw (less editing).

All the lectures and handouts have been uploaded and are now available on Google Drive.  Go to www.drive.google.com and sign-in using the following:

External Bracing with Chris Dean and Maurice Hawkins – 115

External Bracing with Chris Dean and Maurice Hawkins – 115

Maurice Hawkins from Gazelle Health Care lends us some expert opinion on the topic of external bracing focusing specifically on the Ankle Roll Guard invented by Chris Dean.  The Ankle Roll Guard fits outside the shoe and acts as a block for inversion ankle sprains.  we do have concerns about this product on football or soccer players, but Chris says he is planning to do some trials with outside sports, but for now he has been focused on court sports since he is an avid basketball player.

Rookie Mistakes – 113

Rookie Mistakes with John Harmon, Bubba Wilson, Mark Knoblauch and Nicole Cascia – 113

John Harmon and I have spent a good bit of time together riding to meetings for GHATS.  One time we began discussing things we wish they had taught us in college to help us succeed as an athletic trainer in the secondary setting.  Budgeting, building relationships with vendors, insurance claim forms, student athletic trainer programs…they may have taught us something about them, but we could not recall lessons or courses on these topics.  So we decided to share some stories and things we have learned.  Nicole Cascia is going to be a rock star after hearing from so many experienced ATs about how to not fail.
