Hospital purchasing alliances: Ten years after.

Most hospitals outsource supply procurement to purchasing alliances, or group purchasing organizations (GPOs). Despite their early 20th century origin, we lack both national and trend data on alliance utilization, services, and performance. The topic is important as alliances help hospitals control costs, enjoy tailwinds from affiliated regional/local alliances, and face headwinds from hospital self-contracting and criticism of certain business practices.

Challenging the six-hour recommendation for reprocessing sterilizable medical equipment.

At present, reprocessing of sterilizable medical equipment is recommended to be initiated within 6 h after completion of surgery, to ensure that the quality of the instruments does not deteriorate. A literature search showed a lack of evidence for consequences that may occur if medical personnel deviate from the standard 6 h sterilization protocol.

We will also discuss challenges associated with pediatric CI programming that are unique to the use of distance technology, and we will describe ways to overcome those challenges. Last, we will review the results from 2 recent studies specifically targeted toward testing behavioral thresholds in young children with CIs.

Antenatal Testing for Women With Preexisting Medical Conditions Using Only the Ultrasonographic Portion of the Biophysical Profile.

To report the utility of the ultrasonographic biophysical profile, which includes all the components of a biophysical profile minus the nonstress test, in women with maternal indications for antepartum surveillance.

When singing with cochlear implants, are two ears worse than one for perilingually/postlingually deaf individuals?

Many individuals with bilateral cochlear implants hear different pitches when listening with their left versus their right cochlear implant. This conflicting information could potentially increase the difficulty of singing with cochlear implants. To determine if bilateral cochlear implants are detrimental for singing abilities, ten perilingually/postlingually deaf bilateral adult cochlear implant users were asked to sing "Happy Birthday" when using their left, right, both, or neither cochlear implant. The r...

Rhytidectomy in Patients with Cochlear Implants.

As the incidence of rhytidectomy and cochlear implantation increases, so does the likelihood that an individual patient will undergo both procedures over their lifetime. This is particularly relevant as the US population not only ages but ages well. The purpose of this paper is to describe cochlear implants and to characterize pre-, intra-, and postoperative considerations of rhytidectomy in patients with cochlear implants. A thorough understanding of the relevant anatomy and physiology is crucial to the av...

Residual Cochlear Function in Adults and Children Receiving Cochlear Implants: Correlations With Speech Perception Outcomes.

Variability in speech perception outcomes with cochlear implants remains largely unexplained. Recently, electrocochleography, or measurements of cochlear potentials in response to sound, has been used to assess residual cochlear function at the time of implantation. Our objective was to characterize the potentials recorded preimplantation in subjects of all ages, and evaluate the relationship between the responses, including a subjective estimate of neural activity, and speech perception outcomes.

Outcomes after cochlear implant provision in children with cochlear nerve hypoplasia or aplasia.

Cochlear nerve aplasia or hypoplasia is found in up to a half of patients with unilateral or bilateral hearing loss. There is an ongoing discussion regarding the indication of cochlear implants for hearing rehabilitation in cases with radiologically-defined aplasia or hypoplasia of the cochlear nerve in those patients, especially in children. At present there is conflicting evidence whether the audiological outcomes of those children with a CI are comparable to those of children with a CI and a radiological...

Design, Fabrication and Evaluation of A Parylene Thin Film Electrode Array for Cochlear Implants.

To improve the existing manually-assembled cochlear implant electrode arrays, a thin film electrode array (TFEA) was micro-fabricated to have a maximum electrode density of 15 sites along an 8-mm length, with each site having a 75 1.8-μm (diameter - height) disk electrode.

Plague Masks: The Visual Emergence of Anti-Epidemic Personal Protection Equipment.

Often described as "masks" face-worn devices are employed as personal protection equipment by health workers and the general public and considered to be an indispensable technology against epidemics. Simultaneously, they are potent symbols of existential risk. Could these material and visual aspects be more than simply indexically connected? In this article, I examine these apparatuses through a historical anthropological approach of their invention during the 1910-11 Manchurian plague outbreak. Arguing tha...

Automatic localization of closely-spaced cochlear implant electrode arrays in clinical CTs.

Cochlear Implants (CIs) are neural prosthetic devices that provide a sense of sound to people who experience profound hearing loss. Recent research has indicated that there is a significant correlation between hearing outcomes and the intra-cochlear locations of the electrodes. We have developed an image-guided cochlear implant programming (IGCIP) system based on this correlation to assist audiologists with programming CI devices. One crucial step in our IGCIP system is the localization of CI electrodes in ...

This study based on the technology evolution theory, S-curve and bibliometrics, verified product evolution was accompanied by the evolution and transition of a number of sub technologies. It judged MRI was in the stage of underdevelopment and a new round of technology was being developed. It was found that the value of MRI equipment in scientific research or clinical application in foreign countries was higher than that in China by comparing the literatures at home and abroad. And there was a gap between Ch...

Establishing the First Hartford Consensus-Compliant Medical School in the USA.

Following the Hartford Consensus meetings, the Stop the Bleed Campaign was created to reduce the prevalence of death from exsanguination in the case of traumatic hemorrhage. The campaign revolves around providing hemorrhage control training to members of the public and increasing public access to hemorrhage control equipment. To our knowledge, no medical school has established a self-sustaining Stop the Bleed program to train their students and faculty as well as made hemorrhage control equipment available ...

Unlike Medical Spending, Medical Bills In Collections Decrease With Patients' Age.

Health policy is often designed to help protect patients' financial security. However, there is limited understanding of the role medical debt plays in household finances. We used credit report data on more than four million Americans to study the age profile of people whose medical bills were sent to a US collections agency in 2016. We found that, unlike health care use and spending, medical collections decreased substantially with age. The average size of medical debt decreased nearly 40 percent from pat...

Sustaining participation in multisector health care alliances: The role of personal and stakeholder group influence.

Cross-sectoral collaborative organizations (e.g., alliances, coalitions) bring together members from different industry sectors to ameliorate multifaceted problems in local communities. The ability to leverage the diverse knowledge and skills of these members is predicated on their sustained participation, which research has shown to be a significant challenge.

Cochlear-Internal Canal and Cochlear-Facial Dehiscence: A Novel Entity.

Different types of otic capsule dehiscence restricted to the cochlea have been described. Here we describe the case of a patient with a cochlear-internal auditory canal dehiscence associated with a cochlear-facial dehiscence not reported before. A 53-year-old patient with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss due to bilateral Meniere's disease underwent a cochlear implant surgery on the right ear. Preoperative brain magnetic resonance imaging findings were reported to be normal; during surgery, a ce...

Application of "banana cochleostomy" and looped electrode insertion for cochlear implantation in children with common cavity malformation and cystic forms of cochlear hypoplasia.

Patients with profound hearing loss due to inner ear malformations may benefit from cochlear implantation; however, the surgery may present a substantial problem for the cochlear implant surgeon due to anatomical variations. The authors describe a new surgical and technical advancement for implantation in patients with small inner ear cavities that make the surgery easier and safer. On the basis of experience involving five consecutive surgeries performed in four patients with inner ear malformations, we pr...
