This research will allow us to assess the value of the NFC and similar models of care for providing a more coordinated care approach...

Apnea Tests as the Methods of Brain Death Diagnosis.

Apnea test (AT) is the most important clinical test performed usually at the end of brain death (BD) diagnosis procedure. Traditional insufflation apnea test (I-AT) cannot be completed in patients with extremely compromised lung function due to rapid blood desaturation and circulatory disturbances. Therefore we decided to verify alternative AT options such as continuous positive airway pressure apnea test (CPAP-AT) in patients with good and poor baseline oxygenation, before imp...

A Multicenter Trial of Academic Hospitalists

Care of hospitalized patients by "hospitalists" -- often defined as physicians who dedicate at least 25% of their practice to inpatient care -- is a recent, growing, and controversial trend in health care delivery in the United States. But despite the growth of interest in hospitalists, there have been few scientific evaluations of the concept. The comprehensive aim of this research study is to measure and analyze the effects of hospitalists on patient outcomes, costs and medic...

Cerebral Oximetry As an Auxiliary Diagnostic Tool in the Diagnosis of Brain Death

Aim: To investigate the efficacy of cerebral oximetry (CO) as an auxiliary diagnostic tool in confirming brain death (BD). Materials and Methods: This observational and interventional study was performed on patients with suspected BD in emergency departments and intensive care units. CO monitoring was performed for at least 6 h, and cerebral tissue oxygen saturation (ScO2) was recorded. Basal ScO2 values (basal ScO2), ScO2 values after 6 h (end ScO2), mean ScO2 values during ...

Neurophysiological Examination in Patients With Brain Death

This study examines muscle movements of elecromyography in adults with brain death. Half of the participants will have brain death, the other half will be healthy volunteers.

Referral Patterns for Hospital Acquired Acute Kidney Injury and Relevance to Renal Outcomes

Few studies analyzed the referral time to nephrologists and its impact on the patient outcome in a large cohort. The investigators described the incidence and determined the outcome with respect to renal function recovery, renal replacement therapy (RRT) requirement and in-hospital mortality of Hospital Acquired Acute Kidney Injury (HA-AKI) without nephrology referral (nrHA-AKI) and late referred HA-AKI patients to nephrologists (lrHA-AKI) compared with early referral patients ...

Effectiveness of Phone Calls Intervention on Diabetic Patients After Ambulatory Discharge of a Tertiary Care Center

The study is a randomized clinical trial, controlled, open label that aimed to compare two groups after discharge of a tertiary care: type 2 diabetes patients followed exclusively by primary care (control group) and patients followed by primary care and supported by phone calls (intervention group).

Photodynamic Therapy Versus Eplerenone: Treatment Trial for Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy

Chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (cCSC) is a relatively frequently occurring eye disease that is often diagnosed in patients in the professionally active age range. In this disease, a subretinal fluid accumulation occurs, due to abnormalities in both the choroid and the retinal pigment epithelium. This specific form of macular degeneration can cause permanent vision loss, image distortion, and loss of color and contrast vision. An early diagnosis and treatment may impro...

Antenatal Palliative Care

In France, according to current legislation, termination of pregnancy could be performed without any upper gestational age limit, if there is a strong probability that the fetus will be affected by a particularly severe and incurable disease. When there is a lethal fetal diagnosis most of parents wish to terminate their pregnancy. However, and despite some medical resistance a few of them do wish to continue pregnancy. In these situations, palliative care seems to be a good way...

S100 Protein in Minor/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a Public Health problem, because of the numbers of events (more than 200,000 per year in France). Craniocerebral tomodensitometry (CCT) is widely used for the diagnosis of minor/mild TBI, but both the access to the CCT and the cost of this imagery are critical factors. We hypothesized that the blood level measurement of S100 protein (S100), a neurological biomarker of cerebral injury, would help to the clinical evaluation of minor/mild head inju...

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is one of the major causes of mortality in adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD). Risk stratification for sudden cardiac death in this patient group is challenging and at the current moment there are no clear guidelines on implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) implantation for primary prevention of SCD in this young patient population. The reason for this is the fact that this is a heterogenous group of patients and SCD is a relatively ra...

Goals-of-Care Shared Decision Making for Surrogates of Severe Acute Brain Injury Patients

Severe acute brain injury (SABI), including large artery acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, and severe traumatic brain injury continue to be the leading cause of death and disability in adults in the U.S. Due to concerns for a poor long-term quality of life, withdrawal of mechanical ventilation and supportive medical care with transition to comfort care is the most common cause of death in SABI, but occurs at a highly variable rate (for example in Traumatic Brain ...

18F-FluoroethylCholine Positron Emission Tomography: a Promising Diagnostic Tool for Hepatocellular Carcinoma

18F-FluoroethylCholine (18F-FECH) is a new tracer used in PET synthesized by Nuclear Medical Center of Peking Union Medical College Hospital and is favored for diagnosis of primary brain tumor. Although 18F-FECH showed a high presence of biological distribution in liver, 18F-FECH PET may have a higher sensitivity in diagnosis of intra- and extra-hepatic lesions of HCC respectively than those of 18F-FDG or 11C-acetate PET scan, and 18F-FECH PET could be a promising tool in diagn...
