It's 7:30 am and a 55 year old male presents to your emergency department complaining of stabbing pain in his right side, which woke him up from sleep, about 20 minutes ago.
As you walk into the room, you see him pacing around, clutching his side and slightly hunched over.
He won't sit still and can barely complete a sentence before groaning from all the pain.
He has a past medical history of hypertension and diverticulitis. He denies any associated symptoms and states yesterday he felt normal.
The triage nurse obtained a urine sample showing hematuria. What do you do...?
Today, we'll be discussing kidney stones and we will be answering a couple of your questions regarding acute kidney injury and post exposure prophylaxis after a needle stick.
