Critically ill patients are at increased risk of malnutrition due to inflammation and altered metabolism. Malnourished hospitalized patients are associated with longer hospital stays, higher medical costs and increased mortality.

The prevention and treatment of hospital malnutrition offers a tremendous opportunity to optimize the overall quality of patient care, improve clinical outcomes, and reduce costs. Nutrition care is a critical component of patient recovery.

MUSC Health's Registered Dietitians are working hard to improve the speed and accuracy of malnutrition identification and implement nutrition interventions.

ECMO keeps 10-year-old girl with severe COVID alive. What is it? 10/06/2021

ECMO keeps 10-year-old girl with severe COVID alive. What is it?

The life-support machine called ECMO has become a hot topic during the pandemic because it can be used to treat patients suffering from primary respiratory failure from COVID-19. Their lungs are so damaged they can’t breathe.

“I would say nearly every day, physicians across the institution are getting requests for transfers for patients who are either already on ECMO or look like they need ECMO,” said Laura Hollinger, M.D. She serves as medical director of the pediatric ECMO program in the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital.

“It's a challenging time, because we are the pediatric ECMO center for South Carolinians for many medical conditions, in addition to COVID-19. But it’s an extremely risky resource, so we have to be judicious and selective about providing a therapy to the patients who are most likely to benefit.”

MUSC Health gastroenterologist urges IBD patients to get two-dose vaccine

“The authorization of the vaccines in April 2020 was a landmark event in the battle against COVID-19,” says Dr. Forster.

“Based on the science, we can say with confidence that getting fully vaccinated reduces risk of COVID infection and hospitalization. Even those who do get COVID are less likely to be in the hospital and on a ventilator.”

Nurse’s heroism earns her prestigious award 10/04/2021

Nurse’s heroism earns her prestigious award

Angie Powers, an MUSC College of Nursing instructor, served in the U.S. Army Reserves for nearly three decades, spending 2004-2005 in Iraq.

She remembers taking constant mortar fire, car bombs exploding, threats coming from any- and everywhere. It was an extremely dangerous, high-intensity job, but she tried not to think about that and, instead, focused on taking care of her team. If somebody was injured, she’d treat them as best she could until they could be transported out to a combat support hospital. In a way, it helped to keep her mind off the imminent danger.

“It was my job. It was just what I was trained to do.” she said modestly. Read her story ⬇️

Pregnant Myrtle Beach woman with COVID gets lifesaving help at MUSC Health 10/03/2021

Pregnant Myrtle Beach woman with COVID gets lifesaving help at MUSC Health

“We're seeing pregnant moms get sick again," says maternal fetal medicine specialist Rebecca Wineland, M.D. "Even prior COVID should not be a reason not to be vaccinated now, because the Delta variant is 100% in South Carolina and is continuing to cause devastation to those who are unvaccinated.”

Prem Koonkhuntod, whose baby was born while she was unconscious with COVID-19, saw that firsthand and doesn’t want other mothers to go through what she and her baby have. “I think everyone, even pregnant women, should take the vaccine.”

Her husband agreed. “If I knew this would happen, I would ask my wife to go ahead and get the vaccine to keep her from getting COVID.”

Pediatric Immunologist Builds Relationships to Diagnose and Prevent Childhood Allergies 10/02/2021

Pediatric Immunologist Builds Relationships to Diagnose and Prevent Childhood Allergies

"For a long time, the recommendation was to avoid all allergenic foods – like peanuts, milk, and eggs – until children were at least one year old. But recently, a large study turned those guidelines completely around," says Emily Campbell, MD, an assistant professor of pediatrics who specializes in allergies and immunology at MUSC Children’s Health.

"We now know that getting things like peanuts into children's diets at an early age actually helps prevent peanut allergy. Studies with milk and eggs are coming out too, and it looks like this general principal will apply to all of the top food allergens."

“There's so much disease that can occur and happen if we're not doing routine screening … If you're really nervous about coming in to see a physician, we offer telemedicine services where we can provide preventive services via video. If you don't have the technology in your home, we can actually use your telephone to help do that. And we're able to screen people for things like colorectal cancer without having (the patient) come into the office.” -Terrence Steyer, MD
