Mapping dengue risk in Singapore using Random Forest.

Singapore experiences endemic dengue, with 2013 being the largest outbreak year known to date, culminating in 22,170 cases.

This study aims to stratify the spatial risk of dengue transmission in Singapore for effective deployment of resources.

Ketamine Use for Suicidal Ideation in the General Hospital: Case Report and Short Review.

Low-dose infusion of ketamine may have rapid antisuicide properties. Such a treatment may therefore be useful in the general hospital to prevent suicide in an environment that cannot be made safe enough. We report on the use of ketamine as an efficient, well-tolerated treatment for persistent suicidal ideation in a patient hospitalized in a general hospital after a severe suicide attempt. Based on data in the literature, we suggest that the benefit-risk ratio for ketamine use in such a context is highly fav...

This rarity poses a challenge for the anaesthetist when dealing with surgeries for the removal of CBT. Reports of associated perioperative morbidity range from twenty to forty percent. This paper reviews the perioperative anaesthetic management of CBT patients and challenges in our institution's 20 year experience on 13 surgical CBT resections.

Is there still a role for the Adult General Surgeon in General Paediatric Surgery within a District General Hospital setting? National Questionnaire amongst Adult General Surgical Trainees.

In recent years there has been a trend towards centralisation of services for general paediatric surgery in the United Kingdom.

Limited influence of hospital wastewater on the microbiome and resistome of wastewater in a community sewerage system.

Effluents from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) have been proposed to act as point sources of antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB) and antimicrobial resistance genes (ARGs) in the environment. Hospital sewage may contribute to the spread of ARB and ARGs as it contains the feces and urine of hospitalized patients, who are more frequently colonized with multi-drug resistant bacteria than the general population. However, whether hospital sewage noticeably contributes to the quantity and diversity of ARGs in ...
