A class of histamine receptors discriminated by their pharmacology and mode of action. Histamine H2 receptors act via G-proteins to stimulate ADENYLYL CYCLASES. Among the many responses mediated by these receptors are gastric acid secretion, smooth muscle relaxation, inotropic and chronotropic effects on heart muscle, and inhibition of lymphocyte function. (From Biochem Soc Trans 1992 Feb;20(1):122-5)
Cell-surface proteins that bind histamine and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Histamine receptors are widespread in the central nervous system and in peripheral tissues. Three types have been recognized and designated H1, H2, and H3. They differ in pharmacology, distribution, and mode of action.
A class of histamine receptors discriminated by their pharmacology and mode of action. Most histamine H1 receptors operate through the inositol phosphate/diacylglycerol second messenger system. Among the many responses mediated by these receptors are smooth muscle contraction, increased vascular permeability, hormone release, and cerebral glyconeogenesis.

Review of abdominal damage control and open abdomens: focus on gastrointestinal complications. (4/26)

Massive trauma and abdominal catastrophes carry high morbidity and mortality. In addition to the primary pathologic process, a secondary systemic injury, characterized by inflammatory mediator release, contributes to subsequent cellular, end-organ, and systemic dysfunction. These processes, in conjunction with large-volume resuscitations and tissue hypoperfusion, lead to acidosis, coagulopathy, and hypothermia. This "lethal triad" synergistically contributes to further physiologic derangements and, if uncorrected, may result in patient death. One manifestation of the associated clinical syndrome is the development of intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and the abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). The development of ACS is insidious. If not recognized and treated promptly, ACS leads to multi-system organ failure (MSOF) and mortality. Improved understanding of IAH and ACS led to the development of damage control (DC)/open abdomen (OA) as surgical decompressive strategy. The DC/OA approach consists of three basic management steps. During the initial step the abdomen is opened, hemorrhage/abdominal contamination are controlled, and temporary abdominal closure is performed (Stage I). The patient then enters Stage II - physiologic restoration with core rewarming, correction of coagulopathy and completion of acute resuscitation. After physiologic normalization, definitive management of injuries and eventual abdominal closure (Stage III) are achieved. The authors will provide an overview of the DC/OA approach, as well as the clinical diagnosis of ACS, followed by a discussion of DC/OA-associated complications, with focus on digestive system-specific complaints.  (+info)

The purpose of this large-animal study was to assess the safety and effects of negative pressure therapy (NPT) when used as temporary abdominal closure in the immediate post-decompression period after abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). Using a hemorrhagic shock/resuscitation and mesenteric venous pressure elevation model, ACS was physiologically induced in 12 female Yorkshire swine. At decompression, animals were allocated to either NPT (n = 6) or Bogota bag (n = 6) as temporary abdominal closure and studied for a period of 48 h or until death. Outcomes measured included morbidity and mortality, as well as hemodynamic parameters, ventilator-related measurements, blood gases, coagulation factors, and organ (liver, kidney, lung, and intestinal) edema and histology at the time of death/sacrifice. All animals developed ACS. Early application of NPT was associated with decreases in mesenteric venous and central venous pressure, and significantly increased drainage of peritoneal fluid.

Background: In 2009, a classification system for the open abdomen was introduced. The aim of such a classification is to aid the (1) description of the patients clinical course; (2) standardization of clinical guidelines for guiding open abdomen management; and (3) facilitation of comparisons between studies and heterogeneous patient populations, thus serving as an aid in clinical research. Methods: As part of the revision of the definitions and clinical guidelines performed by the World Society of the Abdominal Compartment Syndrome, this 2009 classification system was amended following a review of experiences in teaching and research and published as part of updated consensus statements and clinical practice guidelines in 2013. Among 29 articles citing the 2009 classification system, nine were cohort studies. They were reviewed as part of the classification revision process. A total of 542 patients (mean: 60, range: 9-160) had been classified. Two problems with the previous classification ...
Acelity subsidiary KCI said today that it launched its Abthera open abdomen negative pressure therapy system in Japan.. The San Antonio-based companys Abthera is a temporary abdominal closure system intended to allow surgeons to manage challenging abdominal wall openings where primary closure is not possible and to manage repeat abdominal entries.. KCI said that the system has be validated in clinical studies, showing increased patient survival, improved primary fascial closure rates, shorter intensive care unit stays and improved outcomes.. When dealing with patients managed with damage control for severe abdominal hemorrhage, abdominal compartment syndrome or severe peritonitis, using Abthera Therapy has been shown to be associated with proven patient outcomes. With the introduction of Abthera Therapy in Japan, clinicians now have a clinically demonstrated solution for a previously unmet, significant need, that manages the open abdomen at critical times, helping to achieve primary fascial ...

Barker se často obrací pro inspiraci k historickým událostem. Například jeho hra Scény z popravy se zabývá následky Bitvy u Lepanta (1571) kdy fiktivní umělkyně byla pověřena vytvořením pamětního obrazu benátského vítězství nad Osmanskou flotilou. Hra byla původně napsána pro rozhlasovou stanici Radio 3 v roce 1984, kdy hlavní roli vytvoiřila Glenda Jackson, později byla hra upravena pro divadlo. Krátká hra Judith čerpá námět z biblického příběhu o Judith, legendární hrdince, která zabila generála Holoferna. V jiných hrách Barker reaguej na náměty ze slavných literárních děl. Brutopia je reakcí na Utopii Thomase Mora. Minna je cynické dílo inspirované komedií Gottholda Ephraima Lessinga Osvícení. Ve Strýčku Váňovi představuje alternativní vizi stejnojmenného Čechovova dramatu.

The Tidal Model of nursing, created by Phil Barker, Poppy Buchanan-Barker and their colleagues, is widely used in mental health nursing. It views health and illness as fluid, and life as a journey undertaken on an ocean of experience. However, it states that patients can become physically, emotionally, or spiritually shipwrecked. This metaphor of water throughout the theory should be appreciated by nurses to help them gain a better understanding of the patients current situation, as well as the inevitability of change.. Barkers model includes six philosophical assumptions: a belief in the virtue of curiosity; recognition of the power of resourcefulness; respect for the patients wishes; acceptance of the paradox of crisis as opportunity; acknowledging that all goals must belong to the atient; and the virtue of pursuing elegance, which means the simplest possible means should be sought.. In order for the nurse to start the engagement process with the patient, six things must be accepted: ...
It was a cold Belfast Sunday afternoon at Cathedral Quarters Out to Lunch Festival. The fare was two-course.. There was Australian singer-songwriter, musician, and composer Emily Barker, whos now based in London.

He has one album, one EP, and an otherworldly collaboration with electronic musician and composer Ryan Vail under his belt, and 2016 is promising more.. As Lavery pointed out, there is something different about an afternoon show in a bar. Its all so much more low-key, daytime chatting. When it started, though, we were halted. The room hadnt noticed Lavery walk on stage. We noticed the sound of him knocking the body of his guitar. Slowly, rhythmically. Thats all it took. We stopped mid-sentence..

This paper explores the womens stories in Pat Barkers three earliest novels: Blow Your House Down, Lizas England and Union Street. Using Kristevas concepts of temporality from Womens time, it takes as its starting point the idea that Barkers women are trapped in a harsh cyclical timescale by gender, class and place. Motherhood therefore becomes another form of imprisonment, particularly when father figures are absent. Despite this, there are moments in the texts when women do experience connections that could be described as a more positive version of this cyclical time, one that gestures towards a female tradition, or genealogy. As this suggests, bonds between women in these novels, particularly mothers and daughters, are complex and often troubling, eschewing any easy version of female solidarity. They are more adequately described as bonds based on a complex mixture of fascination and distaste, evoking Luce Irigarays work on relationships between women. This paper examines these ...
A novel layered double hydroxide (LDH) nanoparticle/thermogel composite drug delivery system (DDS) for sustained release of brimonidine (Bri) has been designed, prepared, and characterized in this study for treatment of severe glaucoma. Brimonidine is first loaded onto LDH ([email protected]) nanoparticles, which are then dispersed in the thermogel consisting of plenty of micelles based on poly(dl-lactic acid-co-coglycolic acid)-polyethylene glycol-poly(dl-lactic acid-co-coglycolic acid) (PLGA-PEG-PLGA) copolymer. The [email protected]/Thermogel DDS containing 125.0 μg/g of brimonidine has been found to sustainably release the drug for up to 144 h, significantly extending the drug release period compared to that from [email protected] nanoparticles.

Introduction. To what extent do you agree that in Regeneration Barker question the notion of Heroism in wartime? Courage is generic, denoting fearlessness or defiance of danger; fortitude is passive courage, the habit of bearing up nobly under trials, danger, and sufferings; bravery is courage displayed in daring acts; valor is courage in battle or other conflicts with living opponents; intrepidity is firm courage, which shrinks not amid the most appalling dangers; gallantry is adventurous courage, dashing into the thickest of the fight. Heroism may call into exercise all these modifications of courage. It is a contempt of danger, not from ignorance or inconsiderate levity, but from a noble devotion to some great cause, and a just confidence of being able to meet danger in the spirit of such a cause. There are many different ways in which to show heroism, yet in this context there are only two, the first is contemporary societys definition of heroism, being that of someone who shows selfless ...

The global negative pressure wound therapy market has been segmented on the basis of wound type, product type, end-user, and region.. By mode of product type, the global negative pressure wound therapy market has been segmented into single-use negative pressure wound therapy devices, conventional negative pressure wound therapy devices, and accessories. Among these, the conventional segment is considered to account for the largest market share owing to the ability of conventional negative pressure wound therapy devices to manage severe wound exudates.. By mode of wound type, the global negative pressure wound therapy market has been segmented into ulcers, surgical and traumatic wounds, and burns. Among these, the ulcers segment has been further sub-segmented into venous ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, and others. Surgical and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Negative pressure therapy for post-sternotomy wound infections in young children. AU - Kawajiri, Hiroyuki. AU - Aeba, Ryo. AU - Takaki, Hidenobu. AU - Yozu, Ryohei. AU - Iwata, Satoshi. PY - 2014/7. Y1 - 2014/7. N2 - OBJECTIVES: Post-sternotomy wound infection remains a significant morbidity in congenital and paediatric cardiac surgery. However, the techniques used for this complication in children are not optimal in terms of mortality, morbidity and the use of medical resources. Negative pressure therapy is an effective modality in the treatment in adults, but reports of its use in children are limited. This study evaluated the use of negative pressure therapy in young children for post-sternotomy wound infections. METHODS: From October 2004 to June 2012, 15 consecutive cases of post-sternotomy wound infections in patients ≤6 years of age were managed with negative pressure therapy, and these patients were followed up for ≥12 months after wound closure. The median Aristotle ...
New independent data from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, USA, has demonstrated that the use of negative pressure therapy using Prevena incision management system may reduce the rate of major wound complications and associated costs following vascular groin surgery in high-risk patients. The results were presented at the 2017 Society for Vascular Surgery annual meeting (SVS; May 31-June 3, San Diego, USA).. There is a risk of complication following any procedure that involves an incision, but the risks are even higher with groin incisions. Morbidity related to groin wounds leads to significant increases in length of stay, need for re-operation, re-admission, and even limb loss, says Paul DiMuzio, lead investigator, Philadelphia, USA. The study results indicate that negative pressure therapy over the closed incision significantly decreases the rates of these complications in patients at high risk, and further reduces associated health care costs well beyond the cost of the ...
Wound closure techniques have evolved from the earliest development of suturing materials to comprise resources that include synthetic sutures, absorbables, staples, tapes, and adhesive compounds. The engineering of sutures in synthetic material along with standardization of traditional materials (eg, catgut, silk) has made for superior aesthetic results. Similarly, the creation of natural glues, surgical staples, and tapes to substitute for sutures has supplemented the armamentarium of wound closure techniques. Aesthetic closure is based on knowledge of healing mechanisms and skin anatomy, as well as an appreciation of suture material and closure technique. Choosing the proper materials and wound closure technique ensures optimal healing. Continue reading →. ...
High closure rates of the open abdomen have been reported following negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). However, the method has occasionally been associated with increased development of intestinal fistulae. We have previously shown that the application of NPWT to the open abdomen causes a decrease in microvascular blood flow in the small intestinal loop and the omentum adjacent to the visceral protective layer of the dressing. In this study we investigate whether the negative pressure affects only small intestinal loops lying directly below the dressing or it also affects small intestinal loops that are not in direct contact with the dressing. Six pigs underwent midline incision and application of NPWT to the open abdomen. The microvascular blood flow was measured in four intestinal loops at different depths from the visceral protective layer, at two different locations: beneath the dressing and at the anterior abdominal wall, before and after the application of NPWT of -50, -70, -100, ...

Background: Patients with an open abdomen (OA) treated with temporary abdominal closure (TAC) need multiple surgical procedures throughout the hospital stay with repeated changes of the vacuum-assisted closure device (VAC changes). The aim of this study was to examine if using the intensive care unit (ICU) for dressing changes in OA patients was safe regarding bloodstream infections (BSI) and survival. Secondary aims were to evaluate saved time, personnel, and costs.. Methods: All patients treated with OA in the ICU from October 2006 to June 2014 were included. Data were retrospectively obtained from registered procedure codes, clinical and administrative patients records and the OR, ICU, anesthesia and microbiology databases. Outcomes were 30-, 60- and 90-day survival, BSI, time used and saved personnel costs.. Results: A total of 113 patients underwent 960 surgical procedures including 443 VAC changes as a single procedure, of which 165 (37 %) were performed in the ICU. Nine patients died ...

Ines Doujak and John Barker presented film work, Masterless Voices (2014), at Tate Liverpool and a new podcast series on the history of pandemics titled Transmission: A series of five Podcasts on Disease and Pandemics in a Distorted World (2021).. Interested in uncovering how histories of globalisation impact contemporary socio-cultural conditions, Masterless Voices retraces the roots of carnival to patterns of extraction, labour, and trade, but also to rebellion and joy. The podcast series looks at the social and cultural history of pandemics, beginning with the global transmission of diseases that was facilitated by European colonialism. Interwoven with spoken word, music and songs, Doujak and Barker consider how the spread of disease, parasite and infestation throughout history has created a dehumanised language, which has entered political vocabulary, specifically directed at migrants, minorities and the poor.. Ines Doujak and John Barker have collaborated since 2010. They work together ...

Introduction. Management of open abdomen (OA) with enteroatmospheric fistula (EAF) in morbid obese patient with comorbid disease is challenging. We would like to report the management of septic OA in morbid obese patient with EAF which developed after strangulated recurrent giant incisional hernia repair. We would also like to emphasize, in this case, the conversion of EAF to ileostomy by the help of second Negative Pressure Therapy (NPT) on ostomy side, and the chance of new EAF occurrence was reduced with intrarectal NPT. Case Presentation. 62-year-old morbid obese woman became an OA patient with EAF after strangulated recurrent giant hernia. EAF was converted to ostomy with pezzer drain by the help of second NPT on ostomy. Colonic distention was reduced with the third NPT application via rectum. Abdominal reapproximation anchor (ABRA) system was used for delayed abdominal closure. Conclusions. Using the 2nd NPT on ostomy side may help in the maturation of the ostomy created in a difficult ...

Descendants of John and Grace BarkerbyShaun L Wilson - February 2017 Barker families have resided in Hampsthwaite since the early seventeenth century and were extensive in the area during the nineteenth century. From the 1881 England Census for Hampsthwaite taken on 3rd April that year, Barker was the most popular name totalling 57 out of 457 people enumerated - 12.5% of those recorded living in Hampsthwaite at the time of that census. From the registers of Hampsthwaite parish, Barkers were in existence as early as 1610. The earliest Barker mentioned is John Barker, son of Peter who was baptised on 17th March that year.Where Hampsthwaite is mentioned in this article it refers to both village and parish. We will never know exactly where the early Barkers dwelling houses were as they are not recorded in either the parish registers or on the early census returns, but it is assumed that they lived in the village or within the parish. It was not until the England Census of 1911 that full address ...
The testing was conducted over a 30-day period, 24 hours a day, seven days a week to achieve the thousands of cycles required for the overall test. During the evaluation there were five inspection periods, which required the samples to be removed from the HTU and physically measured to evaluate any changes. During the initial set-up period and up to the first inspection QinetiQ had specialist staff available on-hand 24 hours a day. Once the testing was underway QinetiQ worked closely with the manufacturer and the in-service submarine team.. QinetiQ were very easy to work with. They were well prepared and had thoroughly thought through the process and showed a great deal of initiative, observed Stuart Mills.. Through carrying out the tests with QinetiQ on the proposed modifications, we identified some areas where the redesigned rudder did not behave as we had predicted. As a consequence we have been able to make further design changes to eradicate the defects. This has renewed our confidence ...

It is hard to say how much Bells legal team accomplished for him in practical terms [when he was going to be retried in the juvenile courts system]. The plea offered him in both his adult and juvenile proceedings was the same: second-degree battery (Bells mother told a reporter that the adult-court plea bargain that Bell rejected would have had him serve a four-year sentence, with three years to be suspended and credit given for the time Bell had already spent behind bars). In addition to serving 18 months in juvenile custody as part of his December 3 plea bargain and agreeing to testify in the trials of the other five of the Jena Six, Bell promised to pay $935 in court costs and partial restitution to Barkers parents for their sons medical expenses. Emergency-room treatment for [Justin] Barkers head injuries cost at least $5,000.

Introduction: Quality-adjusted life years are derived using health state utility weights which adjust for the relative value of living in each health state compared with living in perfect health. Various techniques are used to estimate health state utility weights including time-trade-off and standard gamble. These methods have exhibited limitations in terms of complexity, validity and reliability. A new composite approach using experimental auctions to value health states is introduced in this protocol. Methods and analysis: A pilot study will test the feasibility and validity of using experimental auctions to value health states in monetary terms. A convenient sample (n=150) from a population of university staff and students will be invited to participate in 30 auction sets with a group of 5 people in each set. The 9 health states auctioned in each auction set will come from the commonly used EQ-5D-3L instrument. At most participants purchase 2 health states, and the participant who acquires ...

Our main interests revolve around two relatively common, chronic neurodegenerative disorders of the nervous system - Parkinsons disease (PD) and Huntingtons disease (HD). We are interested in better understanding how these diseases develop and then how they change over time with the idea of better classifying patients into different subtypes of disease. These subtypes can then be used to test new therapies as some types of these diseases may be better suited for one type of experimental treatment whilst others may not: e.g. dopamine cell therapies from stem cells treatment may be better suited to younger PD patients with a more benign clinical course. In addition this ability to stratify patients also enables us to undertake studies looking at how these disease subtypes may arise using cells grown from the patients themselves. Typically we harvest these cells from the skin and then turn them into nerve cells in the lab, and by so doing we hope that we can recapitulate what goes wrong in the ...
