Persistent Night Sweats: Diagnostic Evaluation

Night sweats are a nonspecific symptom that patients commonly experience but rarely discuss with their physicians without prompting. Conditions commonly associated with night sweats include menopause, mood disorders, gastroesophageal reflux disease, hyperthyroidism, and obesity. Serious causes should be considered when the history and physical examination do not reveal a specific cause.

Outpatient Management of COVID-19: Rapid Evidence Review

When possible, patients with suspected coronavirus disease 2019 should be triaged via telehealth before they receive in-person care. There are no evidence-based treatments appropriate for use in the outpatient setting; management is supportive and should include education about isolation. In hospitalized patients, remdesivir should be considered to reduce time to recovery, and low-dose dexamethasone should be considered in patients who require supplemental oxygen.

CME credit for this article will be available when it is published in print.
