The first device I invented was the Arrow-Trerotola percutaneous thrombolytic device. I invented it when I was still a fellow. We were just getting into dialysis access declotting and at the time, we were doing thrombolysis with urokinase. This procedure was long, resulted in lots of bleeding and did not work that well. That is what prompted me to do something different. We were also doing a lot of biliary work and using stone baskets all the time, so I came up with the idea of spinning around a stone basket really fast. That was the genesis of the device…necessity being the mother of invention.. I developed the first prototype between 1990 and 1991 and then identified the company I was going to work with, which was Arrow (now Teleflex). Between 1992 and 1996, we carried out a large series of pre-clinical animal testing and then started the clinical trial in 1996. The trial enrolled quickly and was completed by the end of that year. We received US FDA approval in 1997 as the third mechanical ...

A statewide survey was designed to develop a better understanding of the current practices and problems encountered with medication administration through enteral feeding catheters (EFCs). The sample of 223 registered nurses and licensed practical nurses estimated that a median of 1096 of patients received medications through an EFC. EFC obstruction was estimated to have occured a median of 1.5 times per week, with 50% of obstructions estimated to be due to medication administration. Nine of 14 spic medications reported as most frequently contributing tofeeding catheter obstruction available in liquid form, yet tablets were crushed and given When nurses perceived the pharmacy department as helping them insure that liquid dosage form was used, there was greater use of liquid forms, less use of crushed forms, and less medication-associated catheter obstruction. In this sample, the majority of nurses did not follow consistently the few recommendations available.
Tools have distinctive black rubber tips and an entirely new approach to working with clay, plasticene, wax, plaster, heavy body paints, and tough adhesives.
My senior supervisor Dr. Tomono Takahashi, whose speciality is Diabetology, also taught me about the examination and treatment of DM (diabetes mellitus). Not only did she teach me, but she organised visits for me in both Scintigraphy (of suprarenal gland) and an operation with the famous DaVinci robot in Urology (prostatectomy). It was fascinating to see them both. I also listened to a lecture about a nasal spray for allergic rhinitis in medical environment. My favourite procedure however was the adrenal vein sampling,in which I took part twice. I helped in putting the blood samples in the correct containers. I also learned how to insert a PICC (peripherally inserted central venous catheter) with ultrasound, which added a great skill to my medical carreer. Apart from professional work we went to eat out with the doctors of our team to a sushi restaurant, and we visited an owl cafe with two of the doctors, it was highly entertaining. I spent my last two weeks of exchange at the Gastroenterology ...
Abstract:. OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of two concentrations of heparin to clear the lumen of in vitro clotted neonatal, peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs).. METHODS: This is an in vitro, experimental quantitative study of 76 neonatal 2.0 Fr PICCs coagulated in vitro. The catheters were divided into two groups of 38 PICCs each. In both groups an infusion of low molecular weight heparin was administered with a dose of 25IU/mL for Group 1 and 50IU/mL for Group 2. The negative pressure technique was applied to the catheters of both groups at 5, 15 and 30minutes and at 4hours to test their permeability. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis was used to verify the outcome of the groups according to time intervals.. RESULTS: The comparison between both groups in the first five minutes showed that more catheters from Group 2 were cleared compared to Group 1 (57.9 vs. 21.1%, respectively). Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed that less time was needed to clear catheters treated with ...
Abstract:. BACKGROUND: Peripherally inserted central venous catheters (PICCs) are widely used in patients with cancer. Catheter usage is one of the risk factors for venous thromboembolism. We aimed to scrutinize the incidence and risk factors for PICC-related upper extremity venous thrombosis (UEVT) in patients with lung cancer receiving chemotherapy.. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients with lung cancer with PICC insertion undergoing chemotherapy. Symptomatic PICC-UEVT was diagnosed by ultrasound. The relationship between chemotherapeutic agent exposure and PICC-UEVT was evaluated. Patient-, catheter-, and insertion-related factors were analyzed in univariable and multivariable logistic regression to identify significant independent risk factors for PICC-UEVT in patients with lung cancer.. RESULTS: A total of 328 patients with lung cancer having PICC undergoing chemotherapy were included, for a total of 34 895 catheter days. Seventeen (5.2%) patients ...

Cool the swelling. Put a cold compress on the outside of your cheek if youve got swelling from the toothache.. Chill the pain. Holding an ice cube or cold water in the. mouth may relieve the pain. But if you find that it simply aggravates your sensitive tooth, skip it.. Keep your head up. Elevating your head can decrease the pressure in the area and may lessen throbbing pain.. Rinse. You cant really rinse away the pain (although its a pleasant thought), but you can rinse with warm water to remove any food debris that may be causing or aggravating the pain. A piece of food that gets stuck in the gum can hurt as much as damaged tooth pulp. Stir one teaspoon salt in a glass of warm water, swish it around in your mouth, then spit it out.. Floss. No, its not a cure, but flossing is another way to remove any food debris that could be trapped. The rubber tip on your toothbrush or a toothpick (if used with caution) can help dislodge stuck food, too.. Be careful with the hot, the cold, and the sweet. ...

Regular dental cleanings remove the tarter, plaque, and stains that naturally collect on and in-between teeth. Even with regular brushing and flossing, these substances can build up, cause decay and gum disease, and discolor your teeth. Bi-annual cleanings by a dental hygienist can also improve your overall health. During cleanings, dentists screen for oral cancers, gum disease, tooth decay, and bite problems. Regular cleanings may even help prevent stroke and heart disease.. The Dentists and Hygienists of Premier Dental Group use a variety of tools to clean your teeth. X-rays help identify problem areas and decay present on the teeth. Dental mirrors help them see into hard-to-reach areas of your mouth to ensure a complete examination and cleaning. Ultrasonic tools are used to help loosen tartar. Curettes, or scalers, are used to remove finer deposits on the teeth. Finally, low-speed polishers with curved rubber tips are used with a grainy, toothpaste-like solution to smooth and shine the teeth. ...

Central venous catheters (CVC) are vital for patients receiving chemotherapy not compatible with peripheral infusion. Thousands of centrally and peripherally inserted central venous catheters are inserted into patients with cancer each year. All types of intravascular catheters are associated with complications. These complications may be divided into infectious, thrombotic, mechanical and occlusive events. All of these events have the potential to harm patients and cause additional expense for the health-care system. Furthermore, the above-mentioned complications are largely avoidable through proper patient selection, insertion technique, hygiene precautions and catheter maintenance.. Catheter-related infections and deep venous thrombosis are the two most common and feared CVC related complications. Infection in a catheter can cause lifethreatening bacteraemia, and thrombosis can lead to pulmonary embolisation, post-thrombotic syndrome and stenosis of the vessel affected. Many studies ...
Normal-pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) was the first treatable type of dementia everdescribed. Hakim and Adams described the entity they called normal pressurehydrocephalus in 1965 (Hakim & Adams, 1965). Cerebrospinal fluid shunting forhydrocephalus was the first wide treatment available for the disease. In the followingyears, an initially uncritical enthusiasm for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunting wasgradually dampened because of the underdeveloped shunt technology, low clinicalsuccess rates, and frequent complications (Dippel & Habbema, 1993).The most frequent complication is ventricular catheter obstruction, which may accountfor 50 to 80% of newly inserted shunts (Bergsneider et al., 2006). Although many factorscontribute to this (Harris & McAllister, 2012), the main one is related to flowcharacteristics of the catheter within the hydrocephalic brain (Harris & McAllister, 2012;Lin, Morris, Olivero, Boop & Sanford, 2003).
