PY - 2016/11/1. Y1 - 2016/11/1. N2 - Background Skeletal-related events (SREs; pathologic fracture [PF], spinal cord compression and radiation or surgery to bone) are common complications of bone metastases or bone lesions and can impose a considerable burden on patients and healthcare systems. In this study, the healthcare resource utilisation (HRU) associated with PFs in patients with bone metastases or lesions secondary to solid tumours or multiple myeloma was estimated in eight European countries. Methods Eligible patients were identified in Austria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Greece, Poland, Portugal, Sweden and ...

Sub-Saharan Africa is the eye of the HIV epidemic. This study was conducted when treatment for the majority of HIV-infected patients in low resource settings was considered unattainable and the risks of diagnosing HIV often outweighed the benefits. Coupled with the complexities of HIV diagnosis in infancy, children typically were only diagnosed once already ill or not at all. Key strategies to address the paediatric epidemic focused on preventing mother to child transmission and reducing mortality and morbidity of infected children predominantly with co-trimoxazole prophylaxis. Both strategies required early diagnosis of HIV infection in infancy for monitoring prevention programs and identifying infected children respectively. The diagnostic algorithm for resource limited settings recommended the use of inexpensive, technically simpler HIV antibody detection assays that are unsuitable for use in HIV-exposed children under 12-months of age. Paradoxically this algorithm provided a barrier to HIV ...
Im excited to be spending the week with US policy makers and representatives from the LIVESTRONG Foundation and MSH in Uganda and Rwanda. Were here to look at the burden of Non-Communicable Disease and how they are, or are not, taken into account in the national health systems of the two countries. So far, over a very short period of time weve been privileged to meet with many of the top decision-makers and senior management of Ugandas health system and have heard first hand of the challenges and triumphs theyve experienced in dealing with NCDs in low resource settings.. The great challenge of combating NCDs in a country like Uganda is that they are just one of many critical priorities within the health sector; not surprisingly most of Ugandas health budget and donor aid for health are channeled into fighting communicable disease and funding child survival and maternal health programming.. There is strong clear message from donors and government alike that additional funds will not be ...
I thought it was a very interesting discussion. I started with an overview of the role of pathology in managing patients in developing countries and why pathology is important. So in order to treat a patient and manage a patient appropriately we need the correct diagnosis and thats where pathology comes to assess whether at first their tumour is benign or malignant, whether it needs to be taken out or not, what type, how aggressive it is, the nodal status and so on, all the prognostic parameters that tell us how to manage the patient and whats the likelihood for this patient to survive. There was an overview as well of the resources in these countries and how little pathology is supported there. The number of pathologists is low and there are four countries, for example, in sub-Saharan Africa with no pathology at all. So this was really eye-opening.. Then we talked about some experiences from the pathologists in the UK helping out pathologists in Africa, particularly in Nigeria and Egypt, and ...
Assessing the impact of digital health projects and applications is a key challenge, especially in low resource settings. Full evaluative field studies are resource-intensive and time-consuming. Less demanding approaches that could provide rapid insights would be helpful. This paper presents some short-cut approaches for rapid assessments that can provide useful early indications of strengths and weaknesses and can ensure that evaluative efforts are focused on key uncertainties, are not wasted on unpromising interventions, and make the most of what is already known.. ...
Results: Of the 201 hospitalized UC patients, 82 (40.8%) were treated with topical 5-acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and/or topical rectal steroids. The main factors significantly and positively associated with receiving topical treatment were the use of topical treatment in the year prior to the hospitalization, receiving oral 5-ASA, and living in an urban area. The mode of administration was further related to the language area. Patients with topical therapy significantly more often received other UC-related medications, such as combinations with systemic steroids. They significantly more often underwent colonoscopies and calprotectin measurements, and more often consulted a gastroenterologist in the follow-up, while there was no significant difference regarding rehospitalizations ...
Introduction - Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) have expanded the options for antithrombotic therapy. DOAC-related major bleeds are associated with favorable outcomes compared to warfarin in clinical trials and routine practice. However, it is unclear whether management of DOAC-associated major bleeding incurs higher resource utilization and costs.. Materials and Methods - We screened medical records of patients ≥ 66 years with atrial fibrillation admitted to one of five tertiary care hospitals in Ontario, Canada with a hemorrhage. We abstracted bleeds involving DOACs or warfarin and linked them to administrative databases to capture length of hospital stay, blood product use, procedural interventions, intensive care unit (ICU) utilization and related direct medical costs. To control for confounders, multivariate logistic and linear regressions were used for binary and linear outcomes respectively.. Results - Among 19,061 records screened, 1978 (10.4%) cases involving 1632 patients met ...

TY - BOOK. T1 - Global surgery. T2 - The essentials. AU - Park, Adrian. AU - Price, Raymond. PY - 2017/5/2. Y1 - 2017/5/2. N2 - This text was developed as a book aimed at surgeons and allied health professionals that provides an introduction to the unmet needs , epidemiological, socioeconomic and even political factors that frame Global Surgery. Following upon an understanding of these issues, the text is a practical guide that enables the reader on several levels: to work cross culturally , build relationships and negotiate the logistical challenges of bringing surgical care to low resource settings; to develop an approach to the management of various clinical conditions that would be unfamiliar to most western surgeons. Global Surgery is a recently coined term that encompasses many potential meanings. Most would agree that it focuses on the growing recognition of the crisis of access to quality surgical care in low resource settings. Such scenarios exist on every continent. Increasingly ...

Much of the current concerns about prescription medication abuse have centered on opioids, and while opioids are certainly of greater concern in regard to morbidity and mortality related to overdose, the data reported here suggest that emphasis should also be placed on sleeping pills, Weigand said. Our data also suggest that while medication abuse is a major problem, restricting our concerns to prescription drug abuse fails to acknowledge the major contribution of nonprescription agents to healthcare resource utilization ...
Africa still bears the highest disease burden globally with an estimate of 190million cases adequate diagnosis in low resource setting areas are underway
Over the last few decades scientists have tried to change - and improve - the way clinical trials are conducted. Their purpose… Improving the process and improving the way novel pharmaceutical drugs are being developed. But it still takes many years and huge investments to successfully bring a new drug to market.. But despite their efforts there is still a huge unmet medical need.. While there are many novel drugs being developed to help improve the outcome and improve survival, resources are limited. Optimal use of resources requires better understanding of cancer biology, the identification of novel therapeutic targets, and the ability to address inefficiencies in the cancer clinical trials system. This may especially be so in how we treat women with metastatic, high risk, breast cancer.. Based on the current limitations in how we conduct clinical trials, scientists of The Biomarkers Consortium, at the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, are changing the way new anticancer ...
CULTURE COLLECTIONS. A growing awareness of the importance of biodiversity and the hidden genetic potential has resulted in both an increased recognition of the value of collections of cultures of microorganisms and an increase in the number of such collections. However, not all parent organizations are fully aware of the responsibilities inherent in maintaining a public service to appropriate standards. A culture collection is a long-term commitment, as explained in the guidelines of the World Federation for Culture Collections (WFCC) (Hawksworth et al., 1990): It is important to consider the level of funding, both now, and likely to be forthcoming on an on-going basis. This must be adequate to provide the range of services being planned, and at a standard users would expect. If secure resources are limited, in general it is preferable to restrict the primary objectives of the collection to those which have a strong probability of maintaining in the long-term. Collections require a clearly ...
There are a number of issues where Thorne & cook-kallio voted differently that are telling on how they see things. Im thinking of Cook-kallio not wanting to allow rebutle agreements on the Oak Grove referendum & then changing her mind once she saw that Thorne was going to support allowing the arguments. How about her yes vote for Measure B1 the perpetual tax where Thorne voted no. Then Im thinking of the vote on supporting the Castlewood union & the Peace foundation--both items beyond what our city government should be working on especially in these economic times where resources are limited. Then there was the Cunningham house where they voted differently even though she had led the applicant to believe she would support the house. How about wanting to have a discussion about requiring conditional use permits for all retail. (She backed away from that after the Chamber had a conversation with her.) Anyway, i could go on but the point is there are a number of votes where they differed.. ...
By Elizabeth Meier. June is AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) awareness month in the United States - a month to create awareness of the virus that has taken the lives of more than 25 million people since 1981. Education and awareness has given way to improved care, and a higher survival rate, however, AIDS remains a critical world health issue and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, states the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). The pulmonary complications of HIV/AIDS are a common issue adding significantly to patient morbidity and mortality. Imaging plays a vital role in the diagnosis and management of lung of complications associated with HIV. Accurate diagnosis is based on an understanding of the pathogenesis of the processes involved and their imaging findings. Imaging also plays an important role in selection of the most appropriate site for tissue sampling, staging of disease and follow-ups… Almost 70% of the patients suffer at least one respiratory ...

All of the medical resources of the United States cannot in any real sense or legal sense be owned by everyone. So the common ownership rhetoric must be metaphorical and physicians as stewards of the resources must be rhetorical as well. It is a poetic way of saying the physicians should rein in the ever increasing cost of medical care. Further they can do that by ordering fewer tests and procedures and treatments,that they should abide by recommendations based on studies of cost effectiveness of various medical options, that they should not let their concern and duty to the individual patient override the collective good which will be brought about by doing what is best for the group and what will be best will be determined by the progressive medical elite.Just follow the guidelines,Doc ...

Sets the number of concurrent disk I/O operations that PostgreSQL expects can be executed simultaneously. Raising this value will increase the number of I/O operations that any individual PostgreSQL session attempts to initiate in parallel. The allowed range is 1 to 1000, or zero to disable issuance of asynchronous I/O requests.. A good starting point for this setting is the number of separate drives comprising a RAID 0 stripe or RAID 1 mirror being used for the database. (For RAID 5 the parity drive should not be counted.) However, if the database is often busy with multiple queries issued in concurrent sessions, lower values may be sufficient to keep the disk array busy. A value higher than needed to keep the disks busy will only result in extra CPU overhead.. For more exotic systems, such as memory-based storage or a RAID array that is limited by bus bandwidth, the correct value might be the number of I/O paths available. Some experimentation may be needed to find the best ...

Access and well-modulated use of antiretroviral agents (ARVs) in North America dates as early as 1990 with the initial guidelines recommended zidovudine monotherapy, just 4 years after FDA approved the drug. Continued review of emerging data, led to the recommendation of highly active antiretroviral treatment (HAART) in 1998. Clear documentation of access and use of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in resource limited settings was first observed in 2002 after the World Health Organization (WHO) issued guidelines for resource limited settings, and included key ARVs into the WHO essential drug list. Delayed access to ART heavily impacted the initial control of the HIV epidemic in resource limited settings, but even with improved access to ART, differences in the management of HIV still exist; including timing for ART initiation and HIV/ART monitoring strategies. Access to key HIV/ART monitoring tools including viral load testing is limited in low resource settings, leading to gaps in HIV/ART ...
Biopharmaceutics is a kind of organic resource that uses protein, starch, vitamins, minerals and other raw materials to produce drugs through microbial fermentation. Its residue contains rich mycelium and residual organic and inorganic substances. Bio-pharmaceutical residue is one of the most serious pollution sources in bio-pharmaceutical enterprises. Over the years, some enterprises have tried to reuse the residue and achieved some results, but most of them are directly discharged as waste, bringing pollution to the surrounding environment. Biopharmaceutical fermentation is a hot topic in the research of biopharmaceutical modernization in recent years. It is a perfect combination of modern biotechnology and traditional biopharmaceutical advantages, and is one of the important means to improve the material basis of biopharmaceutical efficacy. Based on membrane separation technology, this paper focuses on bio-fermentation of bio-pharmaceutical residues, and reviews from aerobic fermentation and ...

13-year old girl presented to the medical outpatient department with epilepsy diagnosed within the preceding 3 months. However, her seizures were becoming more frequent despite being on Carbamazepine and Phenobarbital at maximal tolerable dosages. She had no recent history of head trauma neither any other medical illness. Her physical examination was unremarkable. Her full blood count, liver and kidney function tests were within normal limits. A Brain CT scan was ordered which revealed multiple calcified and vesicular cysts within the Brain parenchyma; features consistent with Neurocysticercosis. The stool examination was negative for Taenia species ova. She was treated with Albendazole 400mg tid for 1 month and subsequent CT scans at 4 weekly intervals showed marked reduction in the number of active (vesicular cysts). Brain CT scans showing multiple vesicular cysts before treatment with Albendazole (A and B) and after treatment (C and D)
Background: Previous research has shown that patient cost-sharing leads to a reduction in overall health resource utilization. However, in Canada, where health care is provided free of charge except for prescription drugs, the converse may be true. We investigated the effect of prescription drug cost-sharing on overall health care utilization among elderly patients with rheumatoid arthritis.. Methods: Elderly patients (≥ 65 years) were selected from a population-based cohort with rheumatoid arthritis. Those who had paid the maximum amount of dispensing fees ($200) for the calendar year (from 1997 to 2000) were included in the analysis for that year. We defined the period during which the annual maximum co-payment had not been reached as the cost-sharing period and the one beyond which the annual maximum co-papyment had been reached as the free period. We compared health services utilization patterns between these periods during the 4 study years, including the number of hospital ...

Oral warts in an African female child; a rare pathology, diagnostic and therapeutic challenges in a resource limited setting: A case report, Roland Cheofor Ngu, John Fonyuy Tengen
0055] At 604, abnormal consumption of the resource at the location may be detected or determined. For example, a data collection device 102 may detect abnormal consumption of the resource at the location. Additionally or alternatively, a network communication device 206 and/or a computing device of the central office 202 may determine based on received consumption data that a current consumption rate at the location is an abnormal consumption of the resource at the location. In one example, detecting/determining the abnormal consumption comprises comparing a current consumption of the resource through the utility meter with one or more predetermined normal consumption patterns, and determining that the current consumption does not match any of the normal consumption patterns. In that case, the normal consumption patterns may be based on historical resource consumption through the meter, historical resource consumption by a customer currently associated with the meter, average resource ...
Title: Medical Resource Software, Description: Software resources including medical encyclopedias and dictionaries., By: Feedage Forager, ID: 340162, Grade: 82, Type: RSS20
Results There were 12,717 eligible patients in the primary cohort: the majority (86%) were female and the mean age was 51 years. Overall, 61% of patients had claims associated with extra-glandular disease manifestations. These patients experienced a higher disease burden with 41% reporting pain, fatigue and/or insomnia, compared with 12% of patients with glandular disease only who reported pain, fatigue and/or insomnia. Patients in the primary cohort incurred greater annual healthcare service costs (1.6 times greater for all causes and 1.5 times greater for pSS-related causes) and healthcare resource utilisation compared with the sicca-free comparator cohort. The largest difference in SS-related resource utilisation was in the number of office visits (primary cohort: 5.8 visits per patient; comparator cohort: 4.7 visits per patient). Patients with extra-glandular disease also incurred greater average annual costs and used more healthcare resources than patients with glandular disease only. ...

Contribution and significance. The practical contribution is to improve maternal healthcare in Uganda specifically through improved predictions of pregnancy complications in order for Uganda to meet the MDG5. Furthermore, the research supports the task shifting strategy by increasing access to quality care in low resource settings. The theoretical contribution is to identify how social capital theory and the service innovation framework enhance the use of IT to co-create value in the low-resource setting.. 2. Literature. Value co-creation in the service-dominant (S-D) lens is defined as the processes and activities that underlie resource integration and incorporate different actor roles in the service ecosystem (Lusch and Nambisan, 2015).. The task shifting strategy presents challenges of inadequate access to quality maternal healthcare services in the rural communities. The quality of healthcare is not only achieved through service delivery but also through improved healthcare outcomes or the ...
Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) results in a heavy burden on healthcare resources, and this burden is increasing due to a number of factors. By the nature of this chronic illness, mathematical modelling is the only method available to investigate the cost-effectiveness of new treatments in T2DM. To help populate and validate a new model of T2DM, this study was undertaken with the objective of quantifying hospital resource use as patients with and without diabetes approach death. Using the Cardiff Diabetes Database, mortality data from the Office of National Stistics for 1996 were linked to existing hospital records using probability matching techniques. Costs were attributed using a statistical costing technique (healthcare resource groups (HRGs)). Costs are UK 2000 prices. There were 4,394 deaths of which 412 (9.4%) were for patients with diabetes. In the year before death 380 (92%) DM+ patients with diabetes were admitted as an inpatient compared with 73% DM-, a relative rate of 1.27. Total inpatient ...

Background: Influenza-like illness (ILI) among elderly living in residential care homes (RCHE) is a common cause for hospitalization. We examined the incidence, underlying aetiology, natural history and associated healthcare resource utilization related to ILI in the RCHE population. Methods: A prospective study of ILI in 4 RCHEs in Shatin, HK, from Apr 2006 to Mar 2007 was conducted. Each RCHE was monitored daily for ILI occurrence, and followed up until resolution of illness or death. Clinical features were recorded whereas sputum, nasopharyngeal aspirate, blood, and urine specimens were examined for underlying aetiology. Results: 259 episodes of ILI occurred in 194 subjects, with mild peaks in winter and summer, over a sustained level throughout the year. Infection agent was identified in 61.4% of all episodes, comprising bacterial infection in 53.3% and viral in 46.7%. Multiple infections occurred in 16.2% of subjects. The most frequent organisms were Streptococcus pneumoniae, followed by ...
XALIA - which included approximately 5,000 patients from 21 countries - evaluated the safety and effectiveness of XARELTO®, taken once daily, for the treatment of DVT in routine clinical practice as compared to standard anticoagulation. The primary outcome was the incidence of adverse events (major bleeding, recurrent blood clots and all-cause mortality). Healthcare resource utilization, including length of stay, also was evaluated.

Methods This 6-year geographic study of 7679 on-scene patients with suspected stroke with a positive Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale (CPSS) score identified 4037 patients with all three CPSS items who were suspected as having an LVO. Geographic, population, and patient coverage rates for hospitals providing IV thrombolysis and those providing EVT were identified according to hospital service areas, defined as geographic districts with access to a hospital within a ≤15 min off-peak driving time estimated using Google Maps. Moreover, we estimated the effects on resource redistribution when implementing a bypass strategy. ...
The current pandemic of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, widely known as COVID-19, has affected millions of people around the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended vigorous testing to differentiate SARS-CoV-2 from other respiratory infections to aid in guiding appropriate care and management. Situations like this have demanded robust testing strategies and pooled testing of samples for SARS-CoV-2 virus has provided the solution to mass screening of people for COVID-19. A pooled testing strategy can be very effective in testing when resources are limited, yet it comes with its own limitations. These benefits and limitations need critical consideration when it comes to testing highly infectious diseases like COVID-19. This study evaluated the pooled testing of nasopharyngeal swabs for SARS-COV-2 by comparing the sensitivity of individual sample testing with 4-and 8-pool sample testing. Median cycle threshold (Ct) values were compared, and the precision of pooled testing was assessed through an
Both phenomena, slums and tumors, often develop in the periphery of the host (carcinomas develop from epithelial tissue separated by host by basement membrane while slums have their origin in the outskirts of towns where real state is less expensive) where resources are limited and uncontrolled growth lead to gradients of resources and harsh conditions.. Both systems invade by trashing their surroundings: tumors invade healthy tissue by both degradation of extracellular matrix and by causing death of healthy cells; it is known that tumors constitutively metabolize glucose anaerobically producing lactic acid [3, 4] even in presence of oxygen. It was proposed that this glycolytic phenotype would be a mechanism through which tumors would intoxicate their surroundings in order to kill healthy tissue and make room for new tumor cells [4]. A similar mechanism is found in the periphery of growing slums: a wave of devaluation of real state moves outwards of the slum propagated by criminality which ...
Community-acquired pneumonia is often easily treatable and can be managed without hospitalization; however, it continues to be an important cause of morbidity and mortality despite modern antimicrobial therapy. Assuming that resources are limited and because older people are at higher risk, it might seem legitimate to inquire whether the elderly receive sufficient benefit compared with younger patients to justify treatment. The study by Brancati and colleagues adds to the accumulating evidence that decisions to limit treatment on the basis of advanced age alone cannot be supported on scientific grounds. The study was strengthened by its prospective design, completeness and duration of follow-up, and power to detect significant relative risk differences between the oldest and youngest groups. Although some might dispute the definitions for designating moderate and severe comorbidity, the authors finding that the severity of underlying medical conditions predicted mortality, whereas age alone did ...

Epidemics of the SIS form apply to a small but important class of epidemics in which infected individuals recover and can be reinfected (Murray 2002). With just two interconnected regions of hosts and a fixed population size, our SIS formulation allows a rigorous analysis to show that, under certain initial conditions, equalizing infection in each subpopulation is the worst possible strategy when resources are limited for control. It also shows that treatment should be focused on subpopulations with the lower level of infected individuals. This is equivalent to allocating treatment preferentially to subpopulations with the higher proportions of susceptible individuals. The methods introduced here provide new insights into optimal disease control. The results overturn a simple intuition that preference should normally be given to strategies designed to equalize infection in different subpopulations. This paper presents an alternative intuition that derives from the influence of treatment on the ...
With the increasing hardware diversity comes an increasing need for software adaptation and significant re-engineering, or in some cases the need to rewrite code from scratch. Since the effort required is significant and the resources are limited, it is of primary importance to facilitate the re-use of codes and libraries. At the same time, this will also improve portability

Individuals in jail have far higher rates of physical heath problems, mental illness and substance use disorder than the general population, and studies have shown that access to treatment can improve public safety. Counties across the country are developing innovative cross-system approaches to more effectively treat justice-involved individuals with health needs, more efficiently use resources and improve outcomes for individuals and the community. This workshop will feature a national expert detailing ways counties can institutionalize collaboration, and two counties will share their efforts to combine or link justice and health resources to better serve residents.. ...

1.2 Is hep C the same as hep A and hep B?. Hep A, hep B and hep C are all different viruses which can cause liver inflammation. Each virus is transmitted in different ways. You can be vaccinated against hep A and hep B, but there is no vaccine to prevent hep C. It is possible to have different hepatitis viruses at the same time.. About 1 in every 100 people in Australia and around the world has hep C, and many people dont know that they have it. People can have hep C and not know because it can take many years for symptoms to appear ...
