Effect of house officer clerking on short-term outcomes in paediatric orthopaedic patients.

Summary of "Effect of house officer clerking on short-term outcomes in paediatric orthopaedic patients."

Children who are admitted with acute orthopaedic problems are often fit and healthy. The house officer (ie, intern) is required to carry out the formal clerking/admission of inpatients. However, they are often also busy with sick ward patients, which leads to delays in formal clerking of these children until after they have been to the operating theatre (OT). The aim of this study was to assess what information, if any, is missed in children who were seen by a house officer prior to going to OT, compared to those who were not.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Temporary storage of information for a few seconds to hours, as opposed to long-term memory which refers to material stored for days, years, or a lifetime.

A physiochemical process which occurs in a wide range of organisms which unlike BASAL METABOLISM is not required for or essential to short-term survivability but to long-term general well-being of the organism.

Illicit use of chemicals and products whose vapors can be inhaled to produce a rapid mind-altering effect. Inhalants include aerosols, gases, and volatile solvents that are often inhaled repeatedly to achieve the short-lived intoxicating effect.

The effect of GLOBAL WARMING and the resulting increase in world temperatures. The predicted health effects of such long-term climatic change include increased incidence of respiratory, water-borne, and vector-borne diseases.

A carbamate with hypnotic, sedative, and some muscle relaxant properties, although in therapeutic doses reduction of anxiety rather than a direct effect may be responsible for muscle relaxation. Meprobamate has been reported to have anticonvulsant actions against petit mal seizures, but not against grand mal seizures (which may be exacerbated). It is used in the treatment of ANXIETY DISORDERS, and also for the short-term management of INSOMNIA but has largely been superseded by the BENZODIAZEPINES.
