Description

Seeing "lower leg swelling" as the chief complaint for patients as a new nurse practitioner was incredibly stressful. What’s the best course of action? Should you give diuretics for symptom control? Is this something serious...or something totally ordinary?


I had a super interesting case the other week and knew immediately that I had to share it with you — and it was one that I actually got a double-check from my colleague on!


In this episode, you'll learn:

  • The top DDXs - most common and red flags
  • What important history questions to ask
  • Two clinical pearls of patient histories
  • Differential diagnoses
  • How to manage patients in this common scenario - re: testing & treatment
