This research study aims to improve the standard exam called Focused Assessment with Sonography in Trauma (FAST). The FAST exam is an ultrasound test used to identify an abdominal bleed. The study will see if having patients roll on their right side improves the FAST exam. Making the FAST exam better can help trauma doctors save the lives of patients with bleeding.

In the proposed R34 grant, the investigators will develop and test a strategy of immediate fast-track care. The study population will include adult patients with early HIV infection. Parti...
Traditionally, dermatologic surgeons close wounds with stitches. Fast absorbing gut is a dissolvable stitch that is very commonly used. Some surgeons believe that using a thinner size of t...
Background: Researchers want to better understand the body s immune response to calorie restriction. To do this, they are asking healthy volunteers to fast for 24 hours. Researchers will ...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia worldwide with a prevalence of 8% in the elderly. AF is responsible for frequent hospitalizations, stroke, heart failure and ...
The study is trying to prove that the history and physical exam (H&P) in the emergency department is the most important tool in exam of patients. The investigator is attempting to correla...
Hemorrhages are the first cause of perinatal deaths in French women. Thirteen percent of these deaths are not linked to obstetrical problems but rather to hemoperitoneum. These incidents are under-dia...
The Focused Abdominal Sonography for Trauma (FAST) exam has been reported to be unreliable in pelvic fracture patients. Additionally, given the advent of new therapeutic interventions, such as Resusci...
By treating each examination as a polytomous item and a grade that a student achieved in the exam as a score on the item, the partial credit model (PCM) has been used to analyse data from examinations...
I read with great interest, the manuscript by Hung A et al., recently published in your esteemed journal. As abdominal paracentesis (AP) is considered a relatively safe procedure and done very common...
Accumulations of blood in the PERITONEAL CAVITY due to internal HEMORRHAGE.
Skeletal muscle fibers characterized by their expression of the Type II MYOSIN HEAVY CHAIN isoforms which have high ATPase activity and effect several other functional properties - shortening velocity, power output, rate of tension redevelopment. Several fast types have been identified.
Cell surface proteins that bind amino acids and trigger changes which influence the behavior of cells. Glutamate receptors are the most common receptors for fast excitatory synaptic transmission in the vertebrate central nervous system, and GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID and glycine receptors are the most common receptors for fast inhibition.
A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of a wide range of biomolecules, such as glycoalkaloids, glycoproteins, polysaccharides, and peptides. Positive and negative fast atom bombardment spectra are recorded on a mass spectrometer fitted with an atom gun with xenon as the customary beam. The mass spectra obtained contain molecular weight recognition as well as sequence information.
Abnormally rapid heartbeats caused by reentry of atrial impulse into the dual (fast and slow) pathways of ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. The common type involves a blocked atrial impulse in the slow pathway which reenters the fast pathway in a retrograde direction and simultaneously conducts to the atria and the ventricles leading to rapid HEART RATE of 150-250 beats per minute.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
