Elevated blood cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia) is a significant cause of cardiovascular disease. We aimed to estimate national and zonal prevalence of hypercholesterolemia in Nigeria to help guide targeted public health programs.
Despite the introduction of Oxygen Alert Cards, guidelines and audits, oxygen therapy remains overused in NHS practice, and this may lead to iatrogenic mortality. This pilot study aimed to examine the use of Oxygen Alert Wristbands (OxyBand) designed to alert health professionals who are delivering oxygen to patients to ensure that the oxygen is administered and titrated safely to the appropriate target saturations. Patients at risk of hypercapnic acidosis were asked to wear OxyBands while presenting to par...
Electronic health record (EHR) alert fatigue, while widely recognized as a concern nationally, lacks a corresponding comprehensive mitigation plan.
Increased adoption of electronic health records (EHR) with integrated clinical decision support (CDS) systems has reduced some sources of error but has led to unintended consequences including alert fatigue. The "pop-up" or interruptive alert is often employed as it requires providers to acknowledge receipt of an alert by taking an action despite the potential negative effects of workflow interruption. We noted a persistent upward trend of interruptive alerts at our institution and increasing requests fo...
This study explores essential oils' use by health care professionals for health maintenance. A qualitative, descriptive design was employed, and a convenience sample of 10 participants was interviewed. Four themes were identified: an essential oils' community, essential oils' use, essential oils' acceptance, and essential oils' benefits and harms.
: Choosing Wisely is a campaign of the American Board of Internal Medicine that aims to promote evidence-based practices to reduce unnecessary ordering of tests or procedures. As part of this campaign, the Endocrine Society advises against ordering a serum total or free triiodothyronine (T3) level when assessing levothyroxine dosing in hypothyroid patients. This study was performed to assess and reduce inappropriate laboratory ordering practices among providers who manage patients with hypothyroidism within...
A comprehensive laboratory evaluation of the Tetracore RedLine Alert test, a lateral flow immunoassay (LFA) for the rapid presumptive identification of was conducted at 2 different test sites. The study evaluated the sensitivity of this assay using 16 diverse strains of grown on sheep blood agar (SBA) plates. In addition, 83 clinically relevant microorganisms were tested to assess the specificity of the RedLine Alert test. The results indicated that the RedLine Alert test for the presumptive identificatio...
Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is the most common hereditary lipid disorder requiring life-long treatment to prevent cardiovascular disease. A recent concept in healthcare is not only to focus on outcomes defined by healthcare professionals, but also take Patient-Reported Outcomes Measures (PROMs) into account. The aim of this study is (1) to describe the development and first results of a health-related outcomes set including PROMs for FH patients and (2) investigate the influence of patient knowledge ...
There are hardly any concepts on how to impart knowledge about the own health system to students and to clarify the importance and practical relevance of the topic. The case-based approach and the errors described therein should highlight the relevance of the topic to the medical profession.
Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an underdiagnosed and undertreated genetic disorder that leads to premature morbidity and mortality due to atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Familial hypercholesterolemia affects 1 in 200 to 250 people around the world of every race and ethnicity. The lack of general awareness of FH among the public and medical community has resulted in only 10% of the FH population being diagnosed and adequately treated. The World Health Organization recognized FH as a public hea...
This article reports and reflects on an element of a recent survey of UK public health professionals, specifically in relation to the Public Health Knowledge and Skills Framework (PHSKF) and the ethical requirements that underpin public health practice. Only 38.4% of respondents reported accessing the PHKSF and a mere 13.7% reported accessing the accompanying background paper on ethical public health practice. Given that ethical practice underpins the PHSKF, it is concerning that so few respondents are fami...
Our study retrospectively evaluated the implementation of an influenza vaccine best practice alert (BPA) in an electronic medical record within an integrated pediatric health care delivery system.
The study sought to determine the impact of a digital sepsis alert on patient outcomes in a UK multisite hospital network.
Implementation of a universal primary care (PC) suicide-screening program in a college student health center to heighten awareness, provide support and enhance education of staff and students served. Program feasibility, data collection, electronic medical record (EMR) adaptations and staff learning outcomes were examined. 1,607 students with PC visits during Spring 2018 semester. Annual Suicide Behaviors Questionnaire (SBQ-R), EMR template, safety alert, referral tracking and simulated staff training wer...
Population health is a critical component of Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) education, providing the foundation for clinical prevention, health equity, responsible policy, and practice change. Many DNP learners enter population health courses focused on individual patient care in microsystems. Transformative learning broadens learners' perspectives about health determinants and implications for health system transformation.
Assessment of individual cardiovascular risk, distinguishing primary and secondary prevention, would improve the clinical management of the population with familial hypercholesterolemia. We aimed to develop and validate two risk functions to predict incident and recurrent atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in a primary care-based population with familial hypercholesterolemia phenotype (FHP), and to compare their predictive capacity with that of the SpAnish Familial hypErcHolEsterolemiA cohoRT (S...
Health care-related harm is an internationally recognized threat to public health. The United Kingdom's national health services demonstrate that upwards of 90% of health care encounters can be delivered in ambulatory settings. Other countries are transitioning to more family practice-based health care systems, and efforts to understand avoidable harm in these settings is needed.
Persons with multiple cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors are at greater risk than persons exposed to a single risk factor. Control of specific CVD risk factors in Poland is rather poor. Effective control of comorbid hypertension and hypercholesterolemia seems especially challenging.
Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH)is an under-diagnosed condition.
Іntroduction: Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an autosomal dominant disorder, caused by the defect of the gene, encoding the structure and function of the receptor for the apoprotein B/E. Patients with FH are predisposed to premature development of atherosclerosis and clinically manifested forms of cardiovascular diseases, in particular coronary heart disease (CHD). The aim of our article is informing the general practitioners about the diagnosis and management of patients with familial heterozygous ...
Familial hypercholesterolemia has long been considered a monogenic disorder. However, recent advances in genetic analyses have revealed various forms of this disorder, including polygenic and oligogenic familial hypercholesterolemia. We review the current understanding of the genetic background of this disease.
Hypercholesterolemia is a major risk factor for ischemic heart disease including acute myocardial infarction. However, long-term effects of hypercholesterolemia in a rodent myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury model are unknown. Therefore, the effects of diet-induced hypercholesterolemia on cardiac function and remodeling were investigated up to eight weeks after myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (MI-R) injury which was induced in either normocholesterolemic (NC-MI) or hypercholesterolemic (HC-MI) APOE*3-Le...
To assess periodontal and dental conditions in individuals in maintenance care after periodontal therapy in private practice, and identify risk factors for recurrence of disease and tooth loss.
Migration is a complex and contested topic of public debate. Professionals working in public health must negotiate this politicised complexity, yet few studies examine the perspectives and practices of public health professionals in relation to migrant health. This study seeks to redress this by exploring how migrant health is conceptualised and addressed by public health professionals after a key transitional point in the reorganisation of public health in England and the public vote for the UK to leave th...
