Flame retardants have been associated with endocrine disorders, thyroid disruption, reproductive toxicity, and immunological interference. Through dismantling and recycling electronics and electric products, flame retardants can be released into the air and settle on work surfaces which may lead to dermal exposure. Hand wipe sampling is commonly used to evaluate dermal exposure. This study assesses the removal efficiency of wipes on the hands of recycling employees, and to compare the efficacy of two common...
The present study investigated the occurrence of 20 organophosphate esters (OPEs) in house dust from 51 South China homes and the risks of human exposure to OPEs via two pathways: dust ingestion and hand-to-mouth contact. In addition to several traditional OPEs, five out of six novel OPEs, including bisphenol A bis(deiphenyl phosphate) (BPA-BDPP), t-butylphenyl diphenyl phosphate (BPDPP), cresyl diphenyl phosphate (CDP), isodecyl diphenyl phosphate (IDDPP), and resorcinol-bis(diphenyl)phosphate (RDP), were ...
Bleach disinfectant wipes are corrosive to hospital surfaces and equipment. We measured the effect of two widely used bleach wipes, with and without Highlight colour additive, on stainless steel to both quantify corrosion rate and determine the effect of Highlight on reducing surface damage caused by bleach wipes. The two bleach wipes alone caused severe corrosion (>5 mpy) while the addition of Highlight both significantly reduced corrosion rate (
Smoke generator sanitizers are easy to handle and can access to hard-to-reach places. They are a promising alternative for controlling food and air borne fungi, which are known to cause losses in the bakery, meat, and dairy industries. Therefore, the present study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of a smoke generator sanitizer based on orthophenylphenol against ten fungal species relevant to food spoilage. The tests were carried out according to the norms by the French protocol NF-T-72281, with adaptations ...
Individual exposure of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) was assessed by analyzing serum, food, dust, drinking water, and hand wipes from 50 individuals. The PFASs concentrations in serum were correlated most strongly with exposure to PFASs through the (direct and indirect) ingestion of dust (p
Patient-reported outcome measures assessing self-reported disability, pain, and function are primary endpoints for determination of optimal treatment strategies in hand-related conditions. In this study, we aimed to compare responsiveness of Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire (MHQ), Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand Questionnaire (DASH), and Duruöz Hand Index (DHI) in patients with traumatic hand injury.
There has been increasing interest in harm reduction initiatives for street-involved people who drink alcohol, including non-beverage alcohol such as mouthwash and hand sanitizer. Limited evidence exists to guide these initiatives, and a particular gap is in research that prioritizes the experiences and perspectives of drinkers themselves. This research was conducted to explore the harms of what participants termed "illicit drinking" as perceived by people who engage in it, to characterize the steps this po...
Hand hygiene compliance is low among anesthesia providers in the operating room, which places patients at risk of preventable infections. The goal of this project was to improve hand hygiene compliance by educating anesthesia providers on the World Health Organization's 5 indications for hand hygiene, and increasing access to hand hygiene products in the operating room.
Nurses undertake important responsibilities in patient care and the prevention of hospital-acquired infections. However, adherence to hand hygiene practices among nurses has been reported to be low. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of hygienic hand washing training on hand washing practices and knowledge. The study design was a nonrandomized, quasi-experimental study, with pretest-posttest for one group. Pre- and postobservations were also conducted using an observation form on any 5 workdays t...
Miscommunication that occurs during the exchange of information between healthcare providers accounts for approximately 80% of adverse events in the healthcare setting. Nurses devote 10% to 15% of the workday to the nurse-to-nurse hand-off communication. The hand-off itself has remained virtually unchanged for the past 20 years, although the process is prone to errors. The introduction of the electronic health record and mandates to decrease errors and improve patient outcomes has led to an influx of resear...
Hand tremor is one of the most frequent symptoms in movement disorders, and differential diagnoses for hand tremor include Parkinson's disease (PD) and essential tremor (ET). However, accurately differentiating between PD and ET in clinical practice remains challenging in patients presenting with hand tremor. We investigated whether a questionnaire-based survey could be useful as a screening tool in patients with hand tremor.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory polyarthritis that frequently affects the hands and wrists. Hand exercises are prescribed to improve mobility and strength, and thereby hand function.
Primary malignant tumors of the hand are rare. Most cases present to clinics unaffiliated with cancer centers, making it incumbent on all hand surgeons to understand the pathology indicative of malignancy and the proper course of treatment of hand neoplasms. In this review, we report, based on tumor type, the anatomical considerations, proper management, staging, surgical approaches, reconstructive considerations, and long-term surveillance of primary malignant tumors of the hand.
This study investigated the cause of hand hygiene deficit, and further implemented a quality improvement program using WHO's hand-hygiene strategy to enhance the compliance of hand hygiene in the nursing home in Taiwan.
Volume restoration using filler in the dorsum of the hand is a simple and effective procedure to improve wrinkles and to hide veins and tendons. Currently, Calcium-Hydroxyapatite (CaHA)-filler is the only FDA-accepted material to use in the hand dorsum. However, it is not easy to inject due to swelling and redness. In addition, hand anatomy through sonography is wrongly described in PRS. Through incorrect anatomy, physicians will make erroneous surgeries.
Hand hygiene plays a key role in the prevention of healthcare-associated infections. Therefore, this study aims to analyze nurses' adherence to hand hygiene and identify intervention strategies to improve this procedure.
In May 2015, a child with absence of most of the five fingers with scar formation after healing of a left hand burn wound hospitalized in our burn ward. According to the free online design program for making artificial limbs using three-dimensional printing technology on the internet, a utility artificial hand, most of which made of plastic parts, was designed for the child and printed by a three-dimensional printer. The child was instructed to wear and use the utility artificial hand, including driving the...
Hand surgery outreach programs to low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) provide much-needed surgical care to the underserved populations and education to local providers for improved care. The cost-effectiveness of these surgical trips has not been studied despite a long history of such efforts. This study aimed to examine the economic impact of hand surgery trips to LMICs using data from the Touching Hands Project and ReSurge International. We hypothesized that hand surgery outreach would be cost-effect...
Previous studies revealed that healthy individuals consistently misjudge the size and shape of their hidden hand during a localisation task. Specifically, they overestimate the width of their hand and underestimate the length of their fingers. This would also imply that the same individuals misjudge the actual location of at least some parts of their hand during the task. Therefore, the primary aim of the current study was to determine whether healthy individuals could accurately locate the actual position ...
Hand preference may be crucial in the forensic domain, notably in cases where the assailant is known to be left-handed and the defendant claims to be right-handed (or vice versa). In such cases, forensic psychologists or physicians may be asked to test the hand preference of the defendant. However, hand preference may be faked. The case described here illustrates this problem and addresses potential solutions. We also present preliminary data showing that a standard instrument for measuring handedness is se...
Recent evidence suggests that hand-stimulus proximity enhances the visuo-motor Simon effect. The present study used event-related potentials (ERP) to examine the timing at which hand-stimulus proximity modulates the Simon effect. The results show that the P1 and N1 components were not modulated by hand-stimulus proximity, suggesting that early sensory processing is not altered by hand-stimulus proximity. However, the interference effect (the difference between incompatible versus compatible trials) on the N...
Evaluation of a hand mass and subsequent surgical treatment is a frequent clinical encounter for the practicing hand surgeon. The clinical evaluation of benign and malignant hand tumors has traditionally focused on diagnosis, surgical excision, and reconstruction. There is a paucity of literature discussing the determining factors for a hand mass biopsy, its appropriate technique, and postbiopsy preparation and handling. This review discusses the approaches of the hand surgeon and orthopedic oncologist to a...
Hand hygiene is the most important strategy for preventing healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs); however, the impact of hand hygiene in middle-income countries has been poorly described. In this work, we describe the impact of the programme 'Let's Go for 100' on hand hygiene adherence, HCAIs rates and multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria, including the molecular typing of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains.
