The peritoneum is divided into parietal and visceral components. The parietal peritoneum covers the inside of the ABDOMINAL WALL. The visceral peritoneum covers the intraperitoneal organs. The double-layered peritoneum forms the MESENTERY that suspends these organs from the abdominal wall.Fatigue: The state of weariness following a period of exertion, mental or physical, characterized by a decreased capacity for work and reduced efficiency to respond to stimuli.Heart Arrest: Cessation of heart beat or MYOCARDIAL CONTRACTION. If it is treated within a few minutes, heart arrest can be reversed in most cases to normal cardiac rhythm and effective circulation.United StatesEndotoxins: Toxins closely associated with the living cytoplasm or cell wall of certain microorganisms, which do not readily diffuse into the culture medium, but are released upon lysis of the cells.Recurrence: The return of a sign, symptom, or disease after a remission.Shock, Hemorrhagic: Acute hemorrhage or excessive fluid loss resulting in HYPOVOLEMIA.Pain Measurement: Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.Hematoma: A collection of blood outside the BLOOD VESSELS. Hematoma can be localized in an organ, space, or tissue.Wakefulness: A state in which there is an enhanced potential for sensitivity and an efficient responsiveness to external stimuli.Flow Cytometry: Technique using an instrument system for making, processing, and displaying one or more measurements on individual cells obtained from a cell suspension. Cells are usually stained with one or more fluorescent dyes specific to cell components of interest, e.g., DNA, and fluorescence of each cell is measured as it rapidly transverses the excitation beam (laser or mercury arc lamp). Fluorescence provides a quantitative measure of various biochemical and biophysical properties of the cell, as well as a basis for cell sorting. Other measurable optical parameters include light absorption and light scattering, the latter being applicable to the measurement of cell size, shape, density, granularity, and stain uptake.Acetaminophen: Analgesic antipyretic derivative of acetanilide. It has weak anti-inflammatory properties and is used as a common analgesic, but may cause liver, blood cell, and kidney damage.Heart: The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.Ethanol: A clear, colorless liquid rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and distributed throughout the body. It has bactericidal activity and is used often as a topical disinfectant. It is widely used as a solvent and preservative in pharmaceutical preparations as well as serving as the primary ingredient in ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES.Cardiopulmonary Bypass: Diversion of the flow of blood from the entrance of the right atrium directly to the aorta (or femoral artery) via an oxygenator thus bypassing both the heart and lungs.Anoxia: Relatively complete absence of oxygen in one or more tissues.Multivariate Analysis: A set of techniques used when variation in several variables has to be studied simultaneously. In statistics, multivariate analysis is interpreted as any analytic method that allows simultaneous study of two or more dependent variables.Light: That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum in the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared range.Intracranial Embolism: Blocking of a blood vessel in the SKULL by an EMBOLUS which can be a blood clot (THROMBUS) or other undissolved material in the blood stream.

Other non-cardiac sources of emboli are usually associated with VASCULAR DISEASES.Time Management: Planning and control of time to improve efficiency and effectiveness.Risk Assessment: The qualitative or quantitative estimation of the likelihood of adverse effects that may result from exposure to specified health hazards or from the absence of beneficial influences. (Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 1988)Leukocytes: White blood cells. These include granular leukocytes (BASOPHILS; EOSINOPHILS; and NEUTROPHILS) as well as non-granular leukocytes (LYMPHOCYTES and MONOCYTES).Fluorescent Antibody Technique, Indirect: A form of fluorescent antibody technique commonly used to detect serum antibodies and immune complexes in tissues and microorganisms in specimens from patients with infectious diseases. The technique involves formation of an antigen-antibody complex which is labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody. (From Bennington, Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)Antineoplastic Agents, Phytogenic: Agents obtained from higher plants that have demonstrable cytostatic or antineoplastic activity.Anti-Bacterial Agents: Substances that reduce the growth or reproduction of BACTERIA.Cell Line: Established cell cultures that have the potential to propagate indefinitely.Middle Cerebral Artery: The largest of the cerebral arteries. It trifurcates into temporal, frontal, and parietal branches supplying blood to most of the parenchyma of these lobes in the CEREBRAL CORTEX.

Osmolality is expressed in terms of osmoles of solute per kilogram of solvent.Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.

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 ...

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 ...

Dr. Prayson had a histology review session for the M1s this morning, but of course the few of us who were taking the clinical research class missed it. 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.

Just over half (58%) of clinicians indicated that the provision of after-hours care was important. Some clinicians perceived that demand for after-hours care had decreased because of greater availability of appointments during normal business hours. This aligned with the views of some patients who indicated they could access appointments without having to wait for weeks. At [previous] clinic I had to wait for about a week to get an appointment. If urgent, you had to try to the local after-hours which wasnt great. Here I can usually get an appointment within a day. In the survey, just over half of all patients (52%) reported they had changed from another practice to attend the GP Super Clinics. Results from the survey also indicated that patients rated access issues regarding availability and costs as important determinants of reasons to attend the GP Super Clinics. The majority (67%) of the patients participating in the survey also indicated that they were there on the day to see their usual ...

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.

Thankfully, she was a dream and we sang and swayed to Christmas carols the whole ride.. After I played photographer for the class, I hobbled out to the car, knowing I needed to call my doctor. There are no office hours on Tuesdays and I was actually hoping they would let me go to a closer hospital for a quick ultrasound. But, as Nurse Barb put it, "in the event we need to admit you, you need to come here." Thankfully they were able to see me, in spite of having no office hours. For some reason, it makes me feel bad when I cant make it to my next scheduled appointment. I just wish I could feel "normal" as the "typical" pregnant person isnt seen nearly as often as I am nor does the average TAC patient go for weekly scans. I think most tend to go every other week. There is absolutely no way that I could do that. Between obtaining my ticket at the parking garage and paying my $3 to raise the gate, I was there for less than an hour. It was fabulous in terms of convenience. I was even able to pick ...

Objectives The use of escorts (chauffeurs and chaperones) while on duty in after-hours-house-call (AHHC) is one key protective option available to doctors in the service, and has been linked to low burnout and increased satisfaction in AHHC. This study aims to explore the patterns of engagement of escorts in Australian AHHC. Method This is a questionnaire-based, electronic survey of all 300 doctors involved in AHHC through the National Home Doctor Service (NHDS), Australias largest providers of the service. The survey explored the doctors experiences over the 12-month period from October 2013 to September 2014. Results This survey received a total of 168 valid responses, giving a response rate of 56%. Nearly 61% of the doctors involved in AHHC engaged escorts (chauffeurs and chaperones). Of those doctors that engage chauffeurs, three-quarters do so

A long time ago I worked for a commercial out-of-hours service and spent many happy antisocial hours driving around the less salubrious areas of town seeing a series of snotty children and coughing adults. Or occasionally the other way around. When the call details were passed through a very high proportion of the patients were said to have "difficulty in breathing", but when I arrived their respiration was almost always normal, or at least unlaboured. The reason was that the call handlers always asked the stock question "do you/they have difficulty in breathing?" The customers, perhaps thinking that a doctor would be impressed by such difficulty and might turn up earlier, or fearing that he might not turn up without it, would answer "yes". This has entered the local folk memory, and even now patients will report difficulty in breathing as a way of seeking my favour ...

Under no circumstances should you answer it during the day. Calls placed to home numbers during office hours are invariably from one of the following: robots offering to consolidate your debt; robots reminding you that you havent paid your telephone bill; robots blathering on about payment protection insurance refunds and trying to trick you into pressing 5; wrong numbers; defeated-sounding men pushing dodgy investments; or someone from your bank bearing bad news. Take my word for it: I just answered my landline six times in a row in order to compile this list. After a few weeks you may ask yourself: why do I need a landline at all?

We love our patients, so wed be more than happy to see you every day! Alas, we realize thats not really possible, so here are some more realistic guidelines for making appointments. In general, it all depends on your oral health status and your health history. For most patients, the optimal frequency to visit the dentist is twice a year. In six months, enough tartar and plaque can build up to require a dental check-up and cleaning, especially if your dental hygiene isnt as rigorous as it should be. It is very easy to request an appointment (from our website, Facebook page, Google or by phone). Our convenient office hours are Monday - Thursday 8am - 5pm.. For others with gum disease, a genetic predisposition for plaque build-up or cavities, or a weakened immune system, youll need to visit more frequently for optimal care.

In a "normal" pattern, like the one to the left here, the green would have been closer to the center of the chart. Thats pretty much my ideal pattern.. In my actual pattern, well, the green kinda slops all over the place, filling up morning hours and dripping over into the afternoons some days. Except, of course, for the days when I had to be up in time to teach or hold office hours. In which case, those green sections are looking sadly anemic. (Four hours! Can you imagine being coherent enough to rein in a classroom of resentful 18 year olds on four hours of sleep? Gah.). The one yellow block in my actual chart is to indicate restlessness. The white block in the middle of the green indicates me being stuck awake for an hour. When I used an alarm to wake up, I wrote that down. When I took a medication, I wrote that down. When I got up to go to the bathroom, I wrote that down, too (bw = bathroom waking).. And heres the addendum to that chart, which I kept on the same page.. ...
A 2009 article from paulgraham.com is doing the rounds this week, identifying why meetings annoy a substantial subset of their participants. The 30 second summary is that most meetings are organised by people who spend a lot of time in meetings and hence are used to doing non-meeting work in small blocks (context switching fairly quickly). Participants, notably people who make things or write software, are used to and most productive in an environment where they have long uninterrupted time to focus on getting things done. Putting a meeting in the middle of that block of time causes a disproportionate loss of productivity (a 1 hour meeting in the middle of a 4 hour morning more or less trashes the entire mornings productivity). The remedy recommended, which Id heartily endorse, is for the "maker" people to set aside "office hours" for meetings, one or two chunks of time in the week when they are fully available for meetings and hence wont be planning any deep-dive productivity session. ...

Even after midnight, when a surgeon is thought to be most affected by fatigue, there was no significant increase in complication rate or mortality.
