>>Hi, I’m Dr. Kevin Casey. I’m happy to welcome
you again to the second episode of Cooking with Casey. Today’s episode, I have with me
Dustin Riccio. Dustin is a a emergency room trained physician. He is president of our
eastern region hospitals, Newark-Wayne and Clifton Springs Hospital.
>>Correct.>>And I’m happy to have you here.
So talk to me a little bit about what happened in the emergency room with flu this season
and what we typically see.>>Yeah, so the flu this season was actually
quite difficult for all of the emergency departments, and I think thats when we see the individuals
actually coming in, and then when we get into the male we talk about the man cold, right?
And so in addition to the flu like symptoms, we had a really brutal flu year, we also had
a lot of man cold coming through. And I think, when you start to separate out the men versus
women and that is one of those things that we joke about, but we do see it.
>>What is the number one thing that seems to bring people into the emergency room?
>>I know we are talking somewhat about men’s health and women’s health, that number one
killer still remains the same. Heart disease is the same across our emergency departments
as well as the number one killer in the United States and that would play true within Rochester
Regional Health as well.>>In our last episode we talked about men’s
health and how men often delay their presentations and delay getting health care. Does that affect
you in the emergency room as well?>>Yeah, I think it does, I mean women will
typically present later with that chest pain and shortness of breath symptoms because it
comes on differently for them. Men will present with chest pain and shortness of breath and
they typically will come in in an appropriate fashion.
>>Other things that you see on that acute side, on the more critical kind of things.
>>Yeah and y’know I would put abdominal pain as one of those things that we see in the
emergency department all the time and it is again not gender specific, abdominal pain
is the same across men and women and it is one of those top five chief complaints that
we see all the time. From most life threatening to least life threatening
is those weekend warriors. So I don’t know if you know what that means Kevin or not.
>>Yeah, we’ve both been there.>>So those weekend warriors are those, the
guys like myself, who are unable to exercise because of work restrictions, family.
>>Life.>>Thank you very much. And then they get some
time off on the weekend and they decide that they are gonna run a half-marathon or a full-marathon
or play a pick up game with a bunch of 18 year olds. And that is when we start to see
those kinds of bumps and bruises, those are from the weekend warrior.
>>Dustin, thank you very much for coming out here.
>>Thanks for having me, Kevin.>>It’s great to have you, and I’ve really
enjoyed this. Our food looks like it’s ready to go.
>>Yeah so with that, Kevin, who I’d like to introduce you to is Hannah. Hannah is a registered
dietitian at Newark-Wayne and Clifton Springs across the eastern region and what does she
have for us today?>>So in compliment to our chicken wing burgers,
we also have a homemade low-fat yogurt and blue cheese dressing, and some fresh kale
and a tomato on there, and it looks like it will be an absolutely fabulous lunch for us.
>>It will.>>I want to make the point for folks, if they
have an acute injury.>>Come to the emergency department, we’re
there for you.>>Excellent. Thank you for coming and watching
us today on Cooking with Casey, our second episode. Watch for future episodes as we release
