Dr. Alice Hemenway and Former Student Dr. Alexandra Terry Publish Article
Dr. Alice Hemenway, Clinical Assistant Professor on the Rockford campus and former student, Dr. Alexandra Terry, recently had an article published. The article, Evaluation of Corticosteroid Dose in Acute Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease can be found in Hospital Pharmacy. It was published first online: July 30, 2017. doi: 10.1177/0018578717722540, http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0018578717722540.
The aim of the study was to determine whether, in a US community hospital, low doses of corticosteroids provide the lowest risk of adverse effects without increasing length of stay or readmission rate. After conducting their research, the authors found that the lowest dose range of corticosteroids was associated with the lowest rate of impaired blood glucose without a statistically significant increase in length of stay or readmission rate.
