  • Therefore, interventional cardiologists must have a thorough knowledge of consequences of exposure to patients and personnel to ionizing radiation and methods of reducing staff and patient radiation exposure. (
  • 1,2 Any interventionist should keep in mind that there is a "Gordian knot"-type connection between patient and operator exposure, and decreasing the patient dose will result in a proportional decrease in the scatter dose to the operator. (
  • Epidemiologic investigation showed that the four staff had been exposed 3 months earlier to an asymptomatic hepatitis B surface antigen-positive (HB s Ag) patient who was also e positive. (
  • But Anchorage's hospital emergency rooms have been overflowing this year with psychiatric patients, in part because of API staffing shortages. (

  • Amayiri N, Madanat F (2011) Retrospective analysis of pediatric cancer patients diagnosed with the pandemic H1N1 influenza infection. (
  • In pediatric interventional cardiology, cardiologists need to stay closer to the patient than during adult catheterization, and the use of biplane systems increases the scatter radiation. (
  • A biplane X-ray system and polymethylmethacrylate plates of 4 to 20 cm to simulate pediatric patients have been used. (
  • Additional steps for the inpatient staff include a pain history, physical examination, assessment of comorbidities (psychiatric and substance use), medication assessment, urine toxicology screen, and online prescription drug monitoring. (
  • Of the involuntary admitted patients, 424 (35%) had been secluded, 117 (10%) had been restrained and 113 (9%) had received involuntary depot medication at discharge. (

  • A new general of fecal occult blood laboratory tests utilizing immunochemistry demonstrates higher sensitivity, fewer false negatives, and greater patient compliance, which can lead to better laboratory efficiency and cost savings. (
