Dr Arun Sunny, infectious diseases fellow at the USF Morsani Division of Infectious Diseases, discusses three main publications that could change the practice habits of an Infectious Diseases specialist. The three publications involve: (1) The use of post-exposure doxycycline to prevent sexually transmitted infections; (2) The use of hydrocortisone for severe community acquired pneumonia; (3) Early lead extraction for infected implanted electronic devices; and (4) The effects of early sign-offs (discontinuation of care) of infectious diseases consultants. The presentation includes a lively discussion from participants on the merits and pitfalls of each of the presented studies.
