Root Canal Preparation
Preparatory activities in ROOT CANAL THERAPY by partial or complete extirpation of diseased pulp, cleaning and sterilization of the empty canal, enlarging and shaping the canal to receive the sealing material. The cavity may be prepared by mechanical, sonic, chemical, or other means. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p1700)
Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED).

Healthy People Programs
Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Operational factors affecting maternal mortality in Tanzania. (1/381)Identification of the main operational factors in cases of maternal death within and outside the health care system is necessary for safe motherhood programmes. In this study, a follow-up was done of all 117 cases of maternal deaths in Ilala district, Dar es Salaam, 1991-1993, at all levels of care. In all, 79% received some medical care whereas 11% arrived too late for treatment. For each case the major operational factors and all health care interventions were defined through interviews with family members and health care staff and from hospital records, and the avoidability of each case was determined. In the health institutions where the women had consulted, the available resources were assessed. It was found that in most cases the husband (29%) or the mother (31%) of the woman decided on her care in cases of complications, and together with the lack of transport, this often caused delay at home. Also, delay in transfer from the district hospital was common. Cases of abortion complications were often not managed on time because of the delay in reporting to hospital or misleading information. Suboptimal care was identified in 77% of the cases reaching health care. Inadequate treatment was identified by the district health staff in 61% and by the referral centres in 12% of their cases. Wrong decision at the district level and lack of equipment at the referral centre were the main reasons for inadequate care. It is concluded that although community education on danger signs in pregnancy and labour is important, provision of the core resources and supplies for emergency obstetric interventions, as well as clear protocols for management and referral, are absolutely necessary for improvement of maternal survival.

Safety of air medical transportation after tissue plasminogen activator administration in acute ischemic stroke. (2/381)BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We sought to determine the safety of air medical transport (AMT) of patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) immediately after or during administration of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). Patients with AIS treated with tPA in nonuniversity hospitals frequently need transfer to tertiary care centers that can provide specialized care. AMT is a widely available mode of transport that is crucial in providing expedient and quality health care to critically ill patients while assuring high level of care during transportation. The safety of AMT of patients with AIS after or during administration of tPA has not been examined. METHODS: We performed retrospective chart review of 24 patients with AIS who were treated with intravenous tPA and transferred by helicopter to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania or the University of Cincinnati Hospital. The charts were reviewed for neurological complications, systemic complications, and adherence to the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) protocol for AIS management. RESULTS: No major neurological or systemic complications occurred. Four patients had hypertension warranting treatment, 3 patients experienced motion sickness, 1 patient developed a transient confusional state, and 1 patient experienced minor systemic bleeding. Four NINDS protocol violations occurred, all related to blood pressure management. CONCLUSIONS: In this small series, AMT of AIS patients after thrombolysis was not associated with any major neurological or systemic complications. Flight crew education on the NINDS AIS protocol is essential in limiting the number of protocol violations. AMT of patients with AIS provides fast and safe access to tertiary centers that can provide state of the art stroke therapy. (+info)
A single-center 8-year experience with percutaneous dilational tracheostomy. (3/381)OBJECTIVE: To determine surgical, postoperative, and postdischarge complications associated with percutaneous dilational tracheostomy (PDT) in an 8-year experience at the University of Kentucky. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: There are known risks associated with the transport of critically ill patients to the operating room for elective tracheostomy, and less-than-optimal conditions may interfere with open bedside tracheostomy. PDT has been introduced as an alternative to open tracheostomy. Despite information supporting its safety and utility, the technique has been criticized because advocates had not provided sufficient information regarding complications. METHODS: A prospective database was initiated on all patients who underwent PDT between September 1990 and May 1998. The database provided indication, procedure time, duration of intubation before PDT, and intraoperative and postoperative complications. Retrospective review of medical records and phone interviews provided long-term follow-up information. RESULTS: In the 8-year period, 827 PDTs were performed in 824 patients. Two patients were excluded because PDT could not be completed for technical reasons. There were 519 male and 305 female patients. Mean age was 56 years. Prolonged mechanical ventilatory support was the most common indication. Mean procedure time was 15 minutes, and the average duration of intubation before PDT was 10 days. The intraoperative complication rate was 6%, with premature extubation the most common complication. The procedure-related death rate was 0.6%. Postoperative complications were found in 5%, with bleeding the most common. With a mean follow-up of greater than 1 year, the tracheal stenosis rate was 1.6%. CONCLUSIONS: On the basis of this large, single-center study, the authors conclude that when performed by experienced surgeons, PDT is a safe and effective alternative to open surgical tracheostomy for intubated patients who require elective tracheostomy.

Pediatric emergency preparedness in the office. (4/381)Pediatric office emergencies occur more commonly than is usually perceived by family physicians, and most offices are not optimally prepared to deal with these situations. Obtaining specific training in pediatric emergencies and performing mock "codes" to check office readiness can improve the proper handling of pediatric emergencies. Common airway emergencies include foreign-body aspiration and croup. Cool mist, racemic epinephrine nebulization and dexamethasone are typical treatment measures for croup. Asthma and bronchiolitis are common causes of respiratory distress. Hypovolemic shock is the most common cause of circulatory failure in children. Intraosseous access is a simple and underutilized route for vascular access in a critically ill child. Status epilepticus is the most common neurologic emergency. Avoidance of iatrogenic respiratory depression and hypotension can be optimized by taking an algorithmic approach to the use of anticonvulsant medications. Transport of patients after initial stabilization of an emergency should always be done in a manner that provides adequate safety and monitoring. (+info)
What does it cost the patient to see the doctor? (5/381)Against a background of increasing demands on limited resources, there will be an emphasis on undertaking studies that relate benefits of an intervention to the costs that are incurred in their production. Patient costs are an important, but often overlooked, part of an economic exercise and include transport costs, loss of employment, and loss of leisure time. This paper highlights the theoretical difficulties inherent in deriving patient costs and suggests a pragmatic framework to derive unit costs in these areas. We demonstrate that these costs are not inconsiderable when compared with the cost of a general practitioner consultation. (+info)
Effects of ambulance transport in critically ill patients. (6/381)Two groups of critically ill patients were transferred by ambulance from other hospitals to a central intensive therapy unit. The effect of transport was reviewed retrospectively in 46 patients and prospectively in 20 patients. Of the 46 patients reviewed retrospectively six became hypotensive, six became hypertensive, and seven developed delayed hypotension. One patient developed fits and six out of 13 patients had a rise in arterial PCO-2 of 1-6-4-1 kPa (12-31 mm Hg). Of the 20 patients reviewed prospectively, one patient became hypertensive due to overtransfusion, one had a fit, but none became hypotensive. Three out of four cases of delayed hypotension were related to starting intermittent positive pressure ventilation. Arterial PCO-2 fell in one patient and arterial PCO-2 rose in two, each change being related to changed oxygen therapy or narcotics. There were no changes in other cardiovascular or respiratory indices, body temperature, or urine production. Earlier transfer, resuscitation before transfer, continuing medical care during the journey, and hence a slower smoother journey seemed to be important factors in the management of these patients. Our findings, may have important implications in the future regional organization of the care of critically ill patients. (+info)
Movement of criticall ill patients within hospital. (7/381)Critically ill patients were observed during routine movement inside the hospital to and from the intensive therapy unit. One patient a month suffered major cardiorespiratory collapse or death as a direct result of movement. Renewed bleeding of a pelvic fracture, cardiac arrhythmia, cardiac embarrassment due to a haemothorax, and cardiovascular decompensation were seen. It was difficult to continue treatment during movement, especially maintaining an airway or providing adequate intermittent positive pressure ventilation. Seventy postoperative patients suffered few ill effects on being moved. Greater awareness of the dangers of moving critically ill patients within hospital is needed. Thorough preparation for the move and adequate maintenance of treatment during movement requires the skill of experienced medical staff. (+info)
Heart transplantation in children in foreign countries with reference to medical, transportation, and financial issues. (8/381)Heart transplantation is increasingly becoming accepted worldwide as therapy for end-stage heart failure not only in adult patients but also in pediatric practice. The new law in Japan for organ transplantation from brain-dead patients was established on 16 October 1998, but there is no definite law or protocol for brain death in children under the age of 6 years and children less than 15 years of age cannot become donors. These facts make organ transplantation from the cadavers of neonates, infants and young children almost impossible in Japan, even though there are children who need heart or heart-lung transplantation. The present authors have to date transferred 8 patients to the USA or Germany for heart transplantation: 4 successfully underwent heart transplantation, but 4 died during the waiting period overseas. There are many things to consider; not only the medical problems involved in transportation, but also the financial issues when transferring patients to other countries. This report details the experience with the 8 cases that were transferred overseas for heart transplantation, and highlights the problems that need to be considered. (+info)

Oslo moves to block Uber transport service
The City of Oslo, as expected, has decided to file charges against the new Uber personal transport service, telling website E24.no that Uber lacks legal permission to operate in the Norwegian capital. Uber disagrees and has its supporters in Oslo as well as other cities where it operates.. Uber made its debut in Oslo earlier this month and immediately upset the taxi business, which must obtain licenses from the city to carry passengers. They view Uber, which connects drivers and passengers via a mobile phone app at fares much less than those charged by conventional taxis, as a competitive threat.. Others think Uber may pave the way towards liberalizing Norways expensive taxi market, especially at this time of the year when a late-night ride home from a Christmas Party can cost as much as a low-fare airline ticket abroad. After a state secretary in the transport department from the otherwise market-minded Progress Party also claimed Uber was illegal, members of his own partys youth ...
Kelley v. Venezia Transport Services
JOHN A. MASTROPIETRO, CHAIRMAN. The claimant has petitioned for review from a February 1, 2000 Ruling on Motion to Preclude Defense that was issued by the Commissioner acting for the Second District. He contends on appeal that the trier erroneously denied his motion because he incorrectly concluded that this Commission lacks subject matter jurisdiction over the instant claim. We find no error, and affirm the trial commissioners decision.. The claimant is a longtime resident of Pawcatuck, Connecticut. The trier found that he was working as a truck driver in 1990 when he contacted the respondent Venezia Transport Services (Venezia), a trucking company located in Limerick, Pennsylvania, to inquire about employment prospects. His application was initially rejected because he did not have ten years of steady work experience. In June 1991, however, the respondent mailed an employment application to his home, and the claimant submitted that application. Shortly afterward, he called Venezia to check on ...

Transportation - Village Earth
Rural Transport in Developing Countries, Disk 27, File 26-683, book, 145 pages, by I. Barwell et. al., 1985, £7.95 from ITDG. Recent research has drawn attention to the fact that: 1) Few regular transport services operate away from all-weather road networks. However, many people live remote from such networks …. 2) In areas with all-weather road access, motor vehicles are beyond the financial means of the majority of people. Equally, many people cannot afford to use the transport services which do operate. There is unlikely to be a significant improvement in this situation for the foreseeable future given the limited resources available for expansion of road networks and motor vehicle fleets, and the problems of maintaining existing roads and operating conventional motor vehicles. The nine case studies on the transport needs of rural people presented here provide some evidence that contradicts long-held notions about the nature of rural transport activities. Not only are footpaths and ...

Travelling to dialysis - a way ahead? | National Voices
Getting to and from health appointments is a big part of patient experience.. Arriving late, being unable to park or pay for parking, all contribute to what may already be a stressful occasion. When you rely on transport services to get you there it can be even more difficult.. Imagine if that travel was for treatment to keep you alive, and you needed to do the same return journey 3 times a week. And each treatment was at least four hours long, plus time waiting to get onto a machine and be taken off, which is usually another hour. It can leave you feeling exhausted and unwell. That is the reality of dialysis for 29,000 people with kidney failure. During 2018 and 2019 we took a long look at the dialysis travel experience and service; our patient transport review was produced in conjunction with the kidney community and made some important recommendations for improvement. Transport is the lowest-rated aspect of dialysis patient experience and yet is absolutely fundamental as so few people can get ...

River Reporter: Medical transport services under pressure - Save Our Air Medical Resources
By David Poulson. One in three Americans lives in rural areas where getting urgent medical care for events like cardiac emergencies, stroke and trauma are extremely difficult due to the distance of appropriate medical facilities. Since 1990, over 22% of Americas hospitals have closed.. Getting timely, appropriate medical care is deadly serious. Trauma doctors refer to the first hour after a traumatic injury as the Golden Hour because during this critical window, the right kind of medical care can lead to vastly better outcomes with regard to saving lives and preserving quality of life. Eighty-five million Americans who live more than one hour from a hospital with a Level 1 or Level 2 trauma center by ground transport can only access these centers within the Golden Hour because of air medical services. For these Americans there is literally no way to get appropriate emergency care without air transport.. Emergency air medical transport providers, which most often use helicopters, provide a ...

Economic aspects of transport | Umweltbundesamt
Although the transport of people and goods ensures mobility and a wide variety of products, it also incurs a number of costs. Whereas the benefit of the goods added by transport is compensated by the prices of transport and transport services, other associated costs are only in part taken into account in decisions concerning how to execute transport. So-called external costs are ignored, especially costs incurred through pollution and accidents. As a result, there is a large of volume of transport performance whose total cost is higher than its benefit.. In order to contain the economys transport volume to a level that makes both macroeconomic sense and is environmentally sound, external costs must be assessed fairly to their source; in other words, they must be internalised. Efficient and ecological transport policy may not be limited to raising the price of transport. It must also take into account measures that avoid transport activity, which promote a switch to more environmentally friendly ...
