Generally, restoration of blood supply to heart tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. Reperfusion can be induced to treat ischemia. Methods include chemical dissolution of an occluding thrombus, administration of vasodilator drugs, angioplasty, catheterization, and artery bypass graft surgery. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.

Parents' beliefs and expectations when presenting with a febrile child at an out-of-hours general practice clinic. (1/199)

On the basis of structured interviews with 146 parents, this study describes why and when parents of acutely ill children seek the out-of-hours service, what actions they might have taken beforehand, and their expectations as to the outcome of the consultation. A total of 46% of the parents did not consider their child's condition to be serious, but 12% throught that their child was very ill. Parents sought medical advice because of what they perceived to be a lack of control of the condition (49%), fear of a serious disease (17%), and for symptom relief (34%). All except three parents expected there to be an examination of their child, and 79% expected an explanation or a diagnosis. Only 13% spontaneously mentioned that they expected a prescription. It is clinical and communicative skills that prevail in promoting successful consultations in this setting.  (+info)

Surgical OGD--a dying art? (2/199)

INTRODUCTION: Reductions in surgical training and the increases in medical gastroenterology have raised concerns that surgeons may not be adequately trained in upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy. METHOD: To evaluate this problem, a questionnaire was sent to all current surgical specialist registrars (SpRs) in the South Thames East Region. RESULTS: There was an 82% (52/63) response rate. Only 50% (26/52) of trainees had received more than 6 months' training in upper GI endoscopy. 83% (43/52) were in posts which did not provide adequate elective exposure for training. 50% (26/52) were required to provide an emergency service, despite a paucity of experience and less than 50% were able to perform therapeutic injection. In the main, emergency endoscopy is performed with substandard equipment, poor facilities, and untrained staff. CONCLUSIONS: Surgical trainees are poorly trained and do not have the necessary skills to provide an emergency service for upper GI haemorrhage. Emergency endoscopy facilities are severely under resourced.  (+info)

Effect of NHS walk-in centre on local primary healthcare services: before and after observational study. (3/199)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of an NHS walk-in centre on local primary and emergency healthcare services. DESIGN: Before and after observational study. SETTING: Loughborough, which had an NHS walk-in centre, and Market Harborough, the control town. PARTICIPANTS: 12 general practices. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Mean daily rate of emergency general practitioner consultations, mean number of half days to the sixth bookable routine appointment, and attendance rates at out of hours services, minor injuries units, and accident and emergency departments. RESULTS: The change between the before and after study periods was not significantly different in the two towns for daily rate of emergency general practice consultations (mean difference -0.02/1000 population, 95% confidence interval -0.75 to 0.71), the time to the sixth bookable routine appointment (-0.24 half-days, -1.85 to 1.37), and daily rate of attendances at out of hours services (0.07/1000 population, -0.06 to 0.19). However, attendance at the local minor injuries unit was significantly higher in Loughborough than Market Harborough (rate ratio 1.22, 1.12 to 1.33). Non-ambulance attendances at accident and emergency departments fell less in Loughborough than Market Harborough (rate ratio 1.17, 1.03 to 1.33). CONCLUSIONS: The NHS walk-in centre did not greatly affect the workload of local general practitioners. However, the workload of the local minor injuries unit increased significantly, probably because it was in the same building as the walk-in centre.  (+info)

Impact of NHS walk-in centres on the workload of other local healthcare providers: time series analysis. (4/199)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the impact of NHS walk-in centres on the workload of local accident and emergency departments, general practices, and out of hours services. DESIGN: Time series analysis in walk-in centre sites with no-treatment control series in matched sites. SETTING: Walk-in centres and matched control towns without walk-in centres in England. PARTICIPANTS: 20 accident and emergency departments, 40 general practices, and 14 out of hours services within 3 km of a walk-in centre or the centre of a control town. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Mean number (accident and emergency departments) or rate (general practices and out of hours services) of consultations per month in the 12 month periods before and after an index date. RESULTS: A reduction in consultations at emergency departments (-175 (95% confidence interval -387 to 36) consultations per department per month) and general practices (-19.8 (-53.3 to 13.8) consultations per 1000 patients per month) close to walk-in centres became apparent, although these reductions were not statistically significant. Walk-in centres did not have any impact on consultations on out of hours services. CONCLUSION: It will be necessary to assess the impact of walk-in centres in a larger number of sites and over a prolonged period, to determine whether they reduce the demand on other local NHS providers.  (+info)

Use of out of hours services: a comparison between two organisations. (5/199)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate differences in numbers and characteristics of patients using primary or emergency care because of differences in organisation of out of hours care. BACKGROUND: Increasing numbers of self referrals at the accident and emergency (A&E) department cause overcrowding, while a substantial number of these patients exhibit minor injuries that can be treated by a general practitioner (GP). METHODS: Two different organisations of out of hours care in two Dutch cities (Heerlen and Maastricht) were investigated. Important differences between the two organisations are the accessibility and the location of primary care facility (GP cooperative). The Heerlen GP cooperative is situated in the centre of the city and is respectively 5 km and 9 km away from the two A&E departments situated in the area of Heerlen. This GP cooperative can only be visited by appointment. The Maastricht GP cooperative has free access and is located within the local A&E department. During a three week period all registration forms of patient contacts with out of hours care (GP cooperative and A&E department) were collected and with respect to the primary care patients a random sample of one third was analysed. RESULTS: For the Heerlen and Maastricht GP cooperative the annual contact rate, as extrapolated from our data, per 1000 inhabitants per year is 238 and 279 respectively (chi(2)((1df))=4.385, p=0.036). The contact rate at the A&E departments of Heerlen (n=66) and Maastricht (n=52) is not different (chi(2)((1df))=1.765, p=0.184). Some 51.7% of the patients attending the A&E department in Heerlen during out of hours were self referred, compared with 15.9% in Maastricht (chi(2)((1df))=203.13, p<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The organisation of out of hours care in Maastricht has optimised the GP's gatekeeper function and thereby led to fewer self referrals at the A&E department, compared with Heerlen.  (+info)

A systematic review of the effect of different models of after-hours primary medical care services on clinical outcome, medical workload, and patient and GP satisfaction. (6/199)

BACKGROUND: The organization of after-hours primary medical care services is changing in many countries. Increasing demand, economic considerations and changes in doctors' attitudes are fueling these changes. Information for policy makers in this field is needed. However, a comprehensive review of the international literature that compares the effects of one model of after-hours care with another is lacking. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to carry out a systematic review of the international literature to determine what evidence exists about the effect of different models of out-of-hours primary medical care service on outcome. METHODS: Original studies and systematic reviews written since 1976 on the subject of 'after-hours primary medical care services' were identified. Databases searched were Medline/Premedline, CINAHL, HealthSTAR, Current Contents, Cochrane Reviews, DARE, EBM Reviews and EconLit. For each paper where the optimal design would have been an interventional study, the 'level' of evidence was assessed as described in the National Health and Medical Research Council Handbook. 'Comparative' studies (levels I, II, III and IV pre-/post-test studies) were included in this review. RESULTS: Six main models of after-hours primary care services (not mutually exclusive) were identified: practice-based services, deputizing services, emergency departments, co-operatives, primary care centres, and telephone triage and advice services. Outcomes were divided into the following categories: clinical outcomes, medical workload, and patient and GP satisfaction. The results indicate that the introduction of a telephone triage and advice service for after-hours primary medical care may reduce the immediate medical workload. Deputizing services increase immediate medical workload because of the low use of telephone advice and the high home visiting rate. Co-operatives, which use telephone triage and primary care centres and have a low home visiting rate, reduce immediate medical workload. There is little evidence on the effect of different service models on subsequent medical workload apart from the finding that GPs working in emergency departments may reduce the subsequent medical workload. There was very little evidence about the advantages of one service model compared with another in relation to clinical outcome. Studies consistently showed patient dissatisfaction with telephone consultations. CONCLUSIONS: The rapid growth in telephone triage and advice services appears to have the advantage of reducing immediate medical workload through the substitution of telephone consultations for in-person consultations, and this has the potential to reduce costs. However, this has to be balanced with the finding of reduced patient satisfaction when in-person consultations are replaced by telephone consultations. These findings should be borne in mind by policy makers deciding on the shape of future services.  (+info)

Outcome of primary angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction during routine duty hours versus during off-hours. (7/199)

OBJECTIVES: We sought to investigate the impact of circadian patterns in the onset of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) on the practice of primary angioplasty. BACKGROUND: A circadian variation in the time of onset of AMI with a peak in the morning hours has been described. METHODS: We studied 1,702 consecutive patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction treated with primary angioplasty. We observed circadian variation in frequency of symptom onset, hospital admission, and first balloon inflation. Circadian patterns of symptom onset, hospital admission, and balloon inflation are similar. RESULTS: A majority of patients have symptom onset (53%), hospital admission (53%), and first balloon inflation (52%) during routine duty hours (0800 to 1800 h). There were no differences in baseline clinical characteristics or treatment delays between routine duty hours and off-hours patients. Hospital admission between 0800 and 1800 was associated with an angioplasty failure rate of 3.8%, compared with 6.9% between 1800 and 0800, p < 0.01. Thirty-day mortality was 1.9% in patients with hospital admission between 0800 and 1800, compared with 4.2% in patients with hospital admission between 1800 and 0800, p < 0.01. CONCLUSIONS: Circadian variations may have a profound effect on the practice of primary angioplasty. A majority of patients are treated during routine duty hours. Patients treated during off-hours have a higher incidence of failed angioplasty and consequently a worse clinical outcome than patients treated during routine duty hours.  (+info)

After-hour home care service provided by a hospice in Singapore. (8/199)

A home care Hospice programme was set up to provide care to the patients with advanced diseases and their families in Singapore. After office-hour, the service is managed by a doctor on weekdays, with the assistance of a nurse during daytime on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. The doctor on-call made an average of 3.1 phone calls and 1.3 visits each weekday evening. Over the weekends and public holidays, there were a mean of 16.7 phone calls and 6 visits each day. More than half of the visits (50.3%) were made for certification of death. The commonest symptoms that prompted visits were dyspnoea (20%) and pain (12.2%). The busiest period during weekdays was between 6.00 pm and 11.00 pm, when our doctors did most of their visits. The workload of the hospice home care service is likely to increase and resources such as family health physicians can be explored to help to meet this increasing demand. This can be achieved through the provision of comprehensive training and easy accessibility to medical records which are kept with patients.  (+info)

Proactive and comprehensive health care for people with chronic diseases has recently received increased focus. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), chronic diseases are the major cause of death and disability worldwide [1]. The proportion of people living with chronic diseases is currently increasing due to modern life style in combination with longer life expectancy in all western countries, and these patients are among the highest consumers of all healthcare resources [2, 3]. Primary care has become extremely important in providing high quality and coordinated healthcare for people with chronic diseases [4, 5].. In the Danish healthcare system, general practice is gatekeeper for the rest of the healthcare system and thereby the first in line to handle both daytime healthcare and the out-of-hours services (OOH) [6, 7]. Thus, general practice holds an important position as the place that all patients contact to get medical advice, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up regardless if ...

Chest pain is a common diagnostic challenge in primary care and diagnostic measures are often aimed at confirming or ruling out acute ischaemic heart disease. The aim of this study was to investigate management of patients with chest pain out-of-hours, including the use of ECG and laboratory tests, assessment of severity of illness, and the physicians decisions on treatment and admittance to hospital. Data were registered prospectively from four Norwegian casualty clinics. Data from structured telephone interviews with 100 physicians shortly after a consultation with a patient presenting at the casualty clinic with
The demand for out-of-hours (OOH) primary care has increased during the last decades, with a considerable amount of contacts for young children. This study aims to describe the reasons for encounter (RFE), the most common diagnoses, the provided care, and the parental satisfaction with the general practitioner (GP) led OOH service in a Danish population of children (0-5 years). We conducted a one-year cross-sectional study based on data for 2363 randomly selected contacts concerning children from a survey on OOH primary care including 21,457 patients in Denmark. For each contact, the GPs completed an electronic pop-up questionnaire in the patients medical record. Questionnaire items focussed on RFE, health problem severity, diagnosis, provided care, and satisfaction. The parents subsequently received a postal questionnaire. The most common RFE was non-specific complaints (40%), followed by respiratory tract symptoms (23%), skin symptoms (9%), and digestive organ symptoms (8%). The most common diagnosis
We report both short-term and long-term outcomes after PPCI for STEMI in a large contemporary cohort of patients presenting in and out of usual hospital working hours at a regional UK heart attack centre. We have found that the timing of presentation to hospital does not affect mortality after STEMI. Importantly, there was no difference in effective treatment delivery as evidenced by door-to-balloon and call-to-balloon times between patients presenting IHs and those presenting OOHs. That rapid reperfusion can be achieved despite reduced staffing levels is likely to be the key to the equivalent outcomes of our OOH population.. It was first recognised in the 1970s that throughout the Western world mortality is up to 10% higher in patients admitted to acute hospitals at the weekend than during the week,7 ,21 with cardiovascular disease being one of the main causes of this excess mortality.21 In particular, there has been a focus on studies that have suggested increased mortality (due to delayed ...

I was ok with missing it---Im pretty sick of histology at this point. But one of my classmates emailed him about it, so he set up a special review session in the afternoon just for us. I didnt really want to go, but I kind of felt obligated to go after he went out of his way to make a second review session. Actually, it turned out to be pretty helpful, and Im also glad that I went because only one other person besides me showed up. When it was over, I went to anatomy office hours with one of my classmates. There were only two cadavers this week, and Dr. Drake went over them with us. I like neuroanatomy so far.

If you find that work that extends beyond your typical office hours is regularly eating into valuable time spent with your friends or partner, or indeed time youve earmarked for yourself, then you need to take steps to protect yourself. Work that begins to erode your important relationships is something that needs to be managed carefully, and you can do that with the same scheduling techniques you bring to your professional life.. If you have a date - romantically or with friends - treat that with the same priority as you would a work meeting or call. As youd never cancel a meeting during office hours to go to the pub with friends (and expect to remain employed), you shouldnt allow yourself to cancel time with friends out of office hours for work (and expect to remains either friends or happy)..

In August, BMI announced a new general medical admissions service, which will enable GPs to refer patients quickly for private treatment for a broad range of conditions and illnesses. The companys lead for the new service Wouter Van Den Brande tells Pulse it has been introduced in response to the many enquiries received from our patients… who want a viable alternative to queuing to get into an NHS site.. Meanwhile, other companies who focus on winning NHS contracts have reported problems with the approach.. CareUK says total revenue declined by £5.8m (1.7%) in 2015, but elective procedures rose 10.3%. The decline, it says, came from losses from early termination of a significant but loss-making out-of-hours GP contract in April 2015 and loss of the Sussex/East Surrey OOH contract in March 2015.. Virgin Care, meanwhile, posted a £9.15m loss in 2014/15 following a £9.9m loss in 2013/14.. GPC chair Dr Chaand Nagpaul says the rise in private use represents a clear diversion of funds ...

Here are three stories, all from Dublin.. The Stage Manager (SM) fell off her beloved horse. A dog startled Shadow; he bolted and slipped, horse and rider fell to the ground. Shadow was not hurt but the SM blacked out, and was quite shaken for some hours after.. We used to do head injury observation overnight because of the risk of dying from a brain haemorrhage. The new approach is based on CT scan.. This is what actually happened.. SM and mum called the out-of-hours GP, but its a hospital case. Go to the emergency department (ED). They went to a private clinic, who said it was a significant fall, a scan was needed and it couldnt be done there. Go to the ED.. Reluctantly, they joined the queue in a busy hospital. They waited, and they waited. At 2am, they were told the SM would see a doctor at 5am; a scan would not be done until 10am.. A nurse suggested mum could keep an eye on her and come back the next morning. So they went home. Next day, they were told there was no need for a scan ...
Vanguard Healthcare is a private company that the NHS contracted to provide 400 cataract operations in Taunton in 2014. However, the contract was terminated after four days of operations. The trust said that 31 of 62 patients had had a complication, but it did not disclose the severity. Overall, about 2% of cataract operations are expected to have a serious complication1-and compensation is being sought, but would it be the NHS or Vanguard that pays?2. In Cornwall, Serco pulled out early from its contract to provide out-of-hours GP care,3 after a report by the Public Accounts Committee made claims of bullying, short staffing, and alteration of performance data.4. Atos Healthcare bailed out three years into a 10 year contract of providing general practice services in Tower Hamlets, London, where it had not delivered improvements, especially around access.5. Private companies on take or pay contracts from the NHS-that is, where the fee is paid regardless of whether services are used-are reported ...

Background: In recent years, there has been a growth in the use of triage nurses to decrease general practitioner (GP) workloads and increase the efficiency of telephone triage. The actual safety of decisions made by triage nurses has not yet been assessed.. Objectives: To investigate whether triage nurses accurately estimate the urgency level of health complaints when using the national telephone guidelines, and to examine the relationship between the performance of triage nurses and their education and training.. Method: A cross-sectional, multicentre, observational study employing five mystery (simulated) patients who telephoned triage nurses in four GP cooperatives. The mystery patients played standardised roles. Each role had one of four urgency levels as determined by experts. The triage nurses called were asked to estimate the level of urgency after the contact. This level of urgency was compared with a gold standard.. Results: Triage nurses estimated the level of urgency of 69% of the ...

The HSE has published the first national review of GP Out of Hours Services around the country since the commencement of publicly funded GP Cooperatives in 1999. The report found that there were almost 1 million contacts with GP out of hours services in 2008 and that patient satisfaction is rated at over 90% for the majority of the out of hours services. The review examined the 9 GP co-operatives across the country which provide an evening/nighttime, weekend and bank holiday GP service to patients and the 4 extended hours services in Dublin (see below). The development of the service over the 10 year period (1999 - 2009) has led to a successful and highly significant quality initiative for patient care. The report was conducted to review the local arrangements that have developed over this 10 year period to see what works well for patients and to identify where greater value for money can be achieved to ensure the continued provision of service and the development of the service in parts of the ...
