By Duke Medicine News and Communications DURHAM, N.C. – New guidelines for using statins to treat high cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular disease are projected to result in 12.8 million more U.S. adults taking the drugs, according to a research team led by Duke Medicine scientists.

Primary care providers often are asked to perform the preparticipation physical exam and cardiac screening of pediatric athletes. It can be challenging to evaluate which athletes may require further cardiac evaluation and specialist referral based on a focused history and physical. There is considerable controversy surrounding mass electrocardiogram ECG screening of athletes in the United States. The ECG is one of several diagnostic tests used by pediatric cardiologists in the evaluation of underlying heart disease in young athletes. This article reviews cardiac conditions associated with sudden death, discusses pertinent findings on history and physical, and provides clinically relevant information for practitioners wh...

New guidelines for heart treatment. Aspirin has commonly been used to treat heart rhythm disorder atrial fibrillation. Doctors should prescribe newer medications rather than using the "smokescreen" of aspirin to treat a common heart condition, guidance released today advises. Aspirin had commonly been used to treat atrial fibrillation AF, a heart rhythm disorder, which affects 1.5% of the population. The latest research from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence Nice advises doctors not to prescribe it to AF patients but to use instead anticoagulant drugs which prevent blood clots forming. It is thought around 200,000 patients in England are currently on aspirin for their AF. Dr Campbell Cowan, chair of the Guideline Development Group, said: "Aspirin has been a little bit of a smokescreen to anticoagulation. He sought to ...

Wes: Cholesterol Guidelines - Evidence Based. Cholesterol Guidelines - Evidence Based. Drs J Abrahmson and JM Wright published an interesting article in The Lancet on their evaluation of guidelines for the treatment of hyperlipidemia: For adults aged between 30 and 80 years old who already have occlusive vascular disease, statins confer a total and cardiovascular mortality benefit and are not controversial. In formulating recommendations for primary prevention, why do authors of guidelines not rely on the data that already exist from the primary prevention trials. The authors argue that current guidelines are an extrapolation of secondary prevention trials, or data combined from secondary and primary prevention trials, and not based on randomized trials of just primary prevention in the hyperlipidemia literature. To establish a basis for their concerns, they performed a retrospective analysis of the data from primary prevention trials which they admit were not perfect because some of the patients had known va...

The National Cholesterol Education Program NCEP offers cholesterol guidelines for men and women. Cholesterol and Heart Disease. High levels of LDL cholesterol and/or low levels of high-density lipoprotein HDL, or good cholesterol, are major risk factors for heart attack and stroke, two of the most common causes of death in the US. The good news is that most people can control major heart disease risk factors, including cholesterol levels, smoking, excessive weight, lack of exercise, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. Screening for lipid disorders like high cholesterol depends on your age and whether you have any risk factors for heart disease. A Run-Down of the Guidelines.

New Guidelines Limit The Use Of Antibiotics When Treating Children. By Steph November 20, 2013 5:30 AM. Share on Facebook. Share on Twitter. Don’t expect your doctor to get out the prescription pad next time you take your child or grandchild in for an ear infection or cough. Find out why. The American Academy of Pediatrics has. just released new guidelines for prescribing antibiotics when treating common childhood illnesses. These new guidelines encourage doctors to take a “wait and see” approach when they see children with ear infections, a runny nose or coughing. In keeping with these updated guidelines, doctors should choose an antibiotic that treats the specific bacteria causing the illness, only if symptoms persist or become severe. The academy warns that bacteria are getting stronger and more resistant to antibiotics because they are over prescribed. For more information on these new guidelines, click here, or click here.

New Guidelines Emphasize Physical Activity in Cancer Prevention Adopting a physically active lifestyle can help achieve and maintain a healthful weight and affect the levels of some hormones that contribute to cancer formation, say new guidelines recently issued by the American Cancer Society ASC. ASC's guidelines are revised approximately every 5 years by a national panel of experts in cancer research, prevention, epidemiology, public health, and policy. They reflect the most current scientific evidence related to dietary and activity patterns and cancer risk. The guidelines focus on recommendations for individual choices regarding diet and physical activity patterns, but they recognize that ch...

May 3, 2012 New guidelines deliver concise messages for implementing cardiovascular prevention May 3, 2012 The latest cardiovascular disease CVD prevention guidelines have been overhauled to produce a user friendly document with concise messages that awards greater weight than ever before to evidence from clinical trials and observational population studies. The "European Guidelines on Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Clinical Practice version 2012 " were launched at the EuroPRevent2012 meeting in Dublin, Ireland. For the first time the guidelines were launched at the EuroPRevent2012 meeting, held 3 to 5 May 2012, and published simultaneously in the European Heart Journal and European Journal of Preventive Cardiology. Evidence that CVD is caused by modifiable risk factors and preventable comes from clinical trials and observational community studies.

Patients with diabetes are more likely to be visually impaired than those who do not have the disease. However, few studies have examined whether visual impairments in patients with diabetes can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses. To estimate the proportion of patients with diabetes who could benefit from such treatments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC published data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Study in the November 3, 2006, issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Overall, the results suggested that 11 percent of American adults 20 years and older with self-reported diabetes had visual impairments, 65.5 percent of which were correctable. adults with diabetes had mild visual...

New guidelines on obesity herald changes in coverage - Journal News. Mobile: mobile.journal-news.net Sign In. Food. Senior Living. / News / Living / Food /. New guidelines on obesity herald changes in coverage July 11, 2012 By Michelle Andrews, Kaiser Health News. For the millions of people who struggle to lose weight, the new guidelines offer much-needed support. It's unclear whether employers and insurers will welcome the change, though. Under the 2010 health-care law, new health plans and those whose benefits change enough to lose their grandfathered status must provide services recommended by the Preventive Services Task Force at no cost to members. For the 70 percent of employers that already offer weight management programs, that may mean just supplementing what they already offer, says Russell Robbins, a senior clinical consultant at Mercer, a human resources consulting firm. According to the task force, effective weight-loss programs involve 12 to 26 group or individual sessions over the course of a y...

Frank Domino, MD, and other UMMS family physicians applaud the guidelines’ move away from specific low density lipoprotein LDL or “bad” cholesterol numbers as goals for treating high cholesterol, focusing instead on which patients should take statins based upon their individual demographics and cardiovascular risk.

(1/373) An economic evaluation of "Health for All".

The World Health Organization's 'Global Strategy' is an ambitious vision, but to achieve its goals it must first be implemented. Implementation will require careful and detailed planning. This paper evaluates the possibilities of transforming the Global Strategy from a laudable policy initiative into an actual 'Plan for Health', from the point of view of a health economist. This economic evaluation assesses the probable costs of implementing various activities of the Strategy, and the likelihood that developing countries will be able to afford these costs, either on their own, or with the assistance of the developed countries. A final section considers the current global situation and presents trends over the last two decades. The numbers of countries that have already achieved the goals of the Strategy, that can be expected to achieve the goals of the Strategy by the year 2000, and that are unlikely to achieve these goals (on the basis of current trends) are shown. The WHO 'success indicator' based on numbers of countries is compared to a more epidemiological one based on deciles of the world's population. It is argued that, even several years after the initiation of the Global Strategy, insufficient information exists on the next logical step of transforming the Policy into a Plan. Unless adequate attention is paid to this vital step, implementation of the Strategy will inevitably be ad hoc and patchy. Further research on the costs of the activities proposed by the Global Strategy, and the probable effects on health of those activities, is desperately needed.  (+info)

(2/373) Using problem structuring methods in strategic planning.

In this paper we present approaches to problem structuring that have been employed to derive planning guidelines as part of a comprehensive strategic planning process. The approaches were developed for use in the context of a developing country, where quantitative data is particularly scarce. They rely heavily upon the informed judgement of technical planning officers. We discuss ways of ensuring that the approach remains flexible and participative.  (+info)

(3/373) Practice guidelines for the management of patients with histoplasmosis. Infectious Diseases Society of America.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this guideline is to provide recommendations for treating patients with the more common forms of histoplasmosis. PARTICIPANTS AND CONSENSUS PROCESS: A working group of 8 experts in this field was convened to develop this guideline. The working group developed and refined the guideline through a series of conference calls. OUTCOMES: The goal of treatment is to eradicate the infection when possible, although chronic suppression may be adequate for patients with AIDS and other serious immunosuppressive disorders. Other important outcomes are resolution of clinical abnormalities and prevention of relapse. EVIDENCE: The published literature on the management of histoplasmosis was reviewed. Controlled trials have been conducted that address the treatment of chronic pulmonary and disseminated histoplasmosis, but clinical experience and descriptive studies provide the basis for recommendations for other forms of histoplasmosis. VALUE: Value was assigned on the basis of the strength of the evidence supporting treatment recommendations, with the highest value assigned to controlled trials, according to conventions established for developing practice guidelines. BENEFITS AND COSTS: Certain forms of histoplasmosis cause life-threatening illnesses and result in considerable morbidity, whereas other manifestations cause no symptoms or minor self-limited illnesses. The nonprogressive forms of histoplasmosis, however, may reduce functional capacity, affecting work capacity and quality of life for several months. Treatment is clearly beneficial and cost-effective for patients with progressive forms of histoplasmosis, such as chronic pulmonary or disseminated infection. It remains unknown whether treatment improves the outcome for patients with the self-limited manifestations, since this patient population has not been studied. Other chronic progressive forms of histoplasmosis are not responsive to pharmacologic treatment. TREATMENT OPTIONS: Options for therapy for histoplasmosis include ketoconazole, itraconazole, fluconazole, amphotericin B (Fungizone; Bristol-Meyer Squibb, Princeton, NJ), liposomal amphotericin B (AmBisome; Fujisawa, Deerfield, IL), amphotericin B colloidal suspension (ABCD, or Amphotec; Seques, Menlo Park, CA), and amphotericin B lipid complex (ABLC, or Abelcet; Liposome, Princeton, NJ).  (+info)

(4/373) Health impact assessment: a tool for healthy public policy.

Healthy Public Policy is one of the key health promotion actions. Advancement of Healthy Public Policy requires that the health consequences of policy should be correctly foreseen and that the policy process should be influenced so that those health consequences are considered. Health Impact Assessment is an approach that could assist in meeting both requirements. Policies often produce health impacts by multiple indirect routes, which makes prediction difficult. Prediction in Health Impact Assessment may be based on epidemiological models or on sociological disciplines. Health Impact Assessment must be based on an understanding of, and aim to add value to, the policy-making process. It must therefore conform to policy-making timetables, present information in a form that is policy relevant and fit the administrative structures of policy makers. Health Impact Assessment may be used to inform health advocacy but is distinct from it. There is a danger that Health Impact Assessment could be misunderstood as health imperialism.  (+info)

(5/373) Tobacco cessation, the dental profession, and the role of dental education.

This article describes the development of a comprehensive, interdisciplinary, tobacco cessation program based on twenty years of experience at the Indiana University (IU) School of Dentistry. It reviews the relationship between tobacco use and oral health, the nature of nicotine addiction and cessation approaches involving nicotine replacement therapy. In the early 1980s, tobacco control curriculum and cessation guidelines were introduced at the IU School of Dentistry and cooperative efforts initiated with other U.S. and Canadian dental schools. During the past decade, an interdisciplinary Nicotine Dependence Program has been developed to serve outpatients receiving treatment at all hospitals on the IU Medical Center campus. It is hoped that the models described here will be of value to other dental schools developing educational curricula and tobacco control and cessation programs.  (+info)

(6/373) Accident and emergency services for children within Trent region.

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the provision of accident and emergency (A&E) services for children within Trent region, and to compare these with published recommendations. METHODS: A postal questionnaire was sent to all A&E and minor injury units within Trent region providing services for children. Findings were compared with published recommendations including those of the Multidisciplinary Working Party into Accident and Emergency Services for Children. RESULTS: Thirty six units provided A&E services for children within Trent: 17 mixed units, 17 minor injury units and two children's units. Within mixed A&E units complete audio-visual separation from adult patients was provided by six units (35%), inpatient paediatric facilities were available at 11 units (65%) and a minimum of one registered children's nurse was always on duty in three units (18%). CONCLUSIONS: Few A&E units within Trent region currently meet the recommendations of the Multidisciplinary Working Party. The most common shortfall identified was in the provision of registered children's nurses.  (+info)

(7/373) Patient selection criteria and management guidelines for outpatient parenteral antibiotic therapy for native valve infective endocarditis.

Outpatient parenteral antibiotic therapy (OPAT) for infective endocarditis (IE) is being applied widely, despite the absence of controlled data that demonstrates that outcomes are equivalent to those with standard inpatient antibiotic therapy. We review existing OPAT guidelines, published data on the timing of complications from IE, and data on risk factors that can be used to predict complications. These data are used to propose more stringent criteria for patient selection and clinical management of OPAT for native valve IE. We recommend a conservative approach (inpatient or daily outpatient follow-up) during the critical phase (weeks 0-2 of treatment), when complications are most likely, and we recommend consideration of OPAT for the continuation phase (weeks 2-4 or 2-6 of treatment) when life-threatening complications are less likely.  (+info)

(8/373) Malaria chemoprophylaxis in the age of drug resistance. I. Currently recommended drug regimens.

As international travel becomes increasingly common and resistance to antimalarial drugs escalates, a growing number of travelers are at risk for contracting malaria. Parasite resistance to chloroquine and proguanil and real or perceived intolerance among patients to standard prophylactic agents such as mefloquine have highlighted the need for new antimalarial drugs. Promising new regimens include atovaquone and proguanil, in combination; primaquine; and a related 8-aminoquinoline, tafenoquine. These agents are active against the liver stage of the malaria parasite and therefore can be discontinued shortly after the traveler leaves an area where malaria is endemic, which encourages adherence to the treatment regimen. Part 1 of this series reviews currently recommended chemoprophylactic drug regimens, and part 2 will focus on 8-aminoquinoline drugs.  (+info)


What should I look for in a good health plan for my wife and I?


We are late twenties, married two years and really need a decent family health plan. We have no kids yet. What specific benefits/costs should I be looking at? We can probably only afford $200-$300 a month, sadly.
----------

If you can find a plan through your employer, it would be the cheapest. If you are buying on your own then you will have some additional things to look at:
1. are either of you planning any major surgeries or health events (pregnancy)
2. how often do you typically go to the doctor (1? 10?)
3. Do you need specialist care (ob? specialists?)
4. How much money do you have available in an emergency
5. Any routine medications (birth control? allergy? special condition?)

Plans will have info such as co-pays (what you pay when you go in) and then also things like co-insurance. Pay attention to these as it will help you identify how much money you will be paying in addition to your health insurance.

Some people pick plans that have higher upfront costs (copays, drugs, etc) with lower monthly costs because they rarely go to the doc and it is cheaper to pay those costs out of pocket. Others find insurance that is more per month but the day to day is cheaper.

Read the fine print- will previous conditions be a problem? Is there a limit to how much the insurance will pay? Is there a drug plan.

Good luck.


What does the new medical health plan mean for me?


I am in my early 30's, working as a freelance consultant (meaning buying private health coverage). 
Can I and my wife choose the new Gov Medical health plan that are in the works -- and what will that mean for covering her and kids when we start a family?

Last I heard, there is no government health plan in the works. Lieberman managed to kill it. 

Meanwhile, there are still 2 different plans b/n House and Senate and we won't know what the outcome is until they are reconciled.


What kind of health plan do rich people use?


I'm a middle class student on my parent's employer provided health plan: Kaiser Permanente, a large HMO.  I don't know much about the health care system.  I'm just aware of university provided health care as another alternative. So I'm curious what kind of plan do rich people use?
----------

Hello, I'm not sure how you define "rich," but high-end policies are either 80/20 plans (and the wealthy can afford the 20% they pay), low-deductible plans, or plans their corporations write themselves and are provided free to them. They have the freedom to go to any doctor they choose, anywhere in the country. However, that's still a lot running around. Personally, I've been with Kaiser for 20 years and if you're willing to be an advocate for your health care, Kaiser is the best HMO out there, and it's under one roof.


How do Americans without a health plan survive?


I mean, not all jobs give you a health plan. What happens when you get a minor infection? What happens when you get pregnant and need check-ups and then deliver your baby? What happens if you need a major surgery? Do you get in debt for the rest of your lives.

They just have to pray that they're one of those healthy people who don't even see a doctor for years at a time.


How can a person switch health plans when they are sick?


Please help! My uncle, who is in his fifties and has kidney problems (stones) and other issues, has doctors who suck because he is forced to stay with his crappy health plan. I won't name it, but his doctors are indifferent and haven't helped him and he can't afford to see another doctor. He also is discouraged and is too upset to haggle with insurance people, so he just allows himself to suffer. 

So, I want to help. What can he do to eventually switch plans (legally) when he has been with one for so long and is currently sick? Every insurance carrier will not take a new customer if that person is sick (pre-existing condition clause) so a sick person is effectiively screwed. He has nothing terminal and does not have diabetes. 

 Please! If there are any insiders who wish to earn some good karma and relieve the pain of someone who has given up, now would be a great time!

Look for something in the "naturopathic" area.  The health industry is changing.  Stanardized medicine doctors' don't care, they get paid whether they are showing your uncle any progress or not...and they push PILLS instead of getting to the root problem.  Your uncle's body is out of balance.
My sister is graduating in May for her certification as a CERTIFIED NUTRITION THERAPIST.  
Start your uncle on a new path for his health. 
NO PROCESSED FOODS OF ANY KIND. Cut back on red meat too.  Organic apple juice could help with the stones.  Also get him off of ALL sugar and dairy products.  The white bag of sugar off the grocery shelf is bleached. Splenda, also a chlorinated product. If you'd like an "education" about the food industry in this country go to a health food store and they can lead you in the right direction. INCLUDING a referral for a CNT or naturopathic doctor.   Just don't let him give up he's young.
"To relieve existing stones, a GINGER COMPRESS should be applied over the kidneys continuously, especially during a kidney stone attack or strong pain.  Plenty of hot fluids may be taken especially hot BANCHA TWIG TEA, to help ease the obstruction and flush out the stone."pg 274
If your Uncle is serious about what he wants, relief from pain and kidney stone episodes...he will be willing to make the CHANGES that will literally save his life. 
I have been a diabetic since 1992. I managed it pretty well or so I have always thought.  Well I went through some changes in 2003 and my doctor never in questioned me about what I was doing with my diet she just added insulin shots to my life and before I knew it I put on 85 lbs I didn't ASK for....when I found out that the insulin was the direct result I asked the nurse how do I get off of this.  I made changes in my diet and weaned myself off the shots within about 4 months.  I wasted no time doing this.  I still had two diabetic pills I was taking and I did such a great job I got off Avandia as well (major side effect---wt gain.)  My sister and I started seeing a CNT 11/06 and we are currently taking a protocol of BIOTICS and I've lost 20 lbs just since January 07.
Let me explain it this way.  When you see people that are obese and you think--wow that persons' a p-i-g or not caring about themselves.  You can start looking at them in a new light.  It's true some people do overeat...But also true is that the body is completely out balance.  Their body is not handling the chemicals and processed food this country is making for us to comsume.  They are full of toxins. And when the body can't get rid of them it stores the toxins in the fat of the body remaining trapped there.
Let's look at a simple product like: oreo cookies...yeah there yummy....But are you aware that the company that makes them, makes them to be ADDICTIVE.. ?  It's true. When my sister completes  her training I'm going to read everyone of her text books.  Please, Please get your uncle the help he needs through a CNT.  Best Wishes for you both in good  health. 
P.S. I quoted a source but have discovered a CNT the best way to go.  I got the book to look at recipes etc..

----------

Is he on state medicaid? or does he have insurance thru a private insurance company? That can make a big difference. If his health is nothing terminal can he just not mention it when trying to switch? Is his sickness something he has to share with new insurance? Because kidney stones shouldn't prevent him from switching. I know most insurance co. Even state only has open enrollement 1 time a year. If he has to stay with the ones he's with I would start filing complaints for him about the indifferences. Not only to the insurance co but to the health program that dr works for (hospital, clinic, etc). If he's not willing to say enough is enough then there may not be much that can be done. If the problem continues I would seriously think about contacting an attorney. good luck


What would be an example of a group health plan?


Are Aflac and Blue Cross Blue Shields Group Health Plans?

I'm asking for an assignment in my medical office class.  I'm trying to figure out what to put in Block 1 of the CMS 1500 claim form.
----------

Group health plan? Hmm well I know the difference between an insurance and a medical group not sure if that's the same. For example if a patient has Blue Cross and it is an HMO policy the medical group would be Arta Monarch or Family Choice << those are medical groups that fall under HMO's.

(Assuming the US)

If he has insurance through an employer, he can change plans during "open season."  Employer-sponsored plans typically require that the insurer not turn down employees due to pre-existing conditions. 

If he's purchased insurance on his own or has it provided in such a way that the "no reject" provisions don't apply, then he might have a problem.  There's little that can done, unless he's "poor" and therefore falls into a special pool (the government covers part of the risk).
