PERC rule was created to rule out pulmonary embolism (PE) without further exams, with residual PE risk
This study was designed to validate the "San Francisco Syncope Rule". This set of rules was derived by Quinn et. al. to help guide the treatment of patients evaluated in the Emergency Department who had an episode of syncope (passed out) or near syncope (almost passed out). A rule that considers patients with an abnormal ECG, a complaint of shortness of breath, hematocrit less than 30%, systolic blood pressure less than 90 mm Hg, or a history of congestive heart failure was sh...
The aim of this study is to assess the effectiveness and usefulness of a simple one word mnemonic in the memory retention of the different components of the Canadian CT Head Rule (CCHR) in senior medical students and interns. The CCHR, a clinical decision rule used by emergency physicians to determine the need of head CT in the context of minor traumatic brain injury (mTBI). A rapid recall of the rule in the clinical setting would be expected to improve its utilization and over...
Early rule-in or rule-out of myocardial infarction (MI) is essential in patients presenting to the Emergency Department with chest pain. Recently, the European Society of Cardiology has suggested an accelerated 0h/1h algorithm to rule-in or rule-out MI as a valid alternative to the standard 0h/3h approach. So far, the 0h/1h algorithm has only been validated for certain high-sensitive Troponin assays. Moreover, it is unknown if MI can be ruled-out by measuring hs-cTn already at ...
The main objective of this study is to verify whether a new clinical decision rule identifying patients diagnosed with unprovoked blood clots who have a low risk of recurrence can safely stop oral anticoagulant therapy after 5-7 months of treatment.
To date, the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) rule for identifying children who are at very low risk of clinically-important traumatic brain injuries after minor head trauma has not been validated prospectively in an independent population. Our goal was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of the PECARN clinical decision rule in a French pediatric population in multiple clinical settings.
Management of NSTEMI in emergency departements represent 10% of the global activity. Since the the last European Society of Cardiology recommendation the use of an 1 hour rule-in and rule-out protocol is recommended combined with high-sensitivity troponin. But studies show 3% of the patients are false negative using this protocol. This study aims at analysing the feasibility of this protocol in an Emergency Departement and the security of this protocol if combined with a pre-tr...
The specific aims of this study were to assess whether letrozole as an aromatase inhibitor plus hCG or OT alone, or in combination compared with CC, improves ovarian response.Ethical design of this study is based on the ethical guidelines of the Iranian Medical and Health Ministry which is accepted by Tabriz medical university ethical committee .
This is prospective cohort study, in pregnant women who present with signs and symptoms of possible deep vein thrombosis. All patients will have the same method of assessment of their DVT symptoms (the LEFt clinical decision rule will be applied and D-dimer test will be done) to determine if a compression ultrasound is required. All patients will be followed for a period of 3 months.
Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a major health problem and its diagnosis remains a challenge for the emergency physician. The management of a suspected ACS is well codified, based on troponin assays, renewed if necessary. Conversely, the criteria leading to initiate a diagnostic procedure in chest pain to the Emergency department are unclear. The fear is, firstly, to miss a potentially life treating diagnosis and, secondly, exposing many patients to unnecessary examinations. ...
What combination of ≤ 6 clinical variables will give the highest specificity for indicating significant shoulder injuries (fractures or dislocations) with a set sensitivity of ≥ 97%? Although shoulder trauma is a common injury, there is no clinical decision rule to determine the necessity for radiography for these traumas. With this trial the investigators aim to develop such a rule to reduce the amount of radiographs without missing any significant injuries. The pr...
The Ethical, Legal and Social Issues Substudy in relation to the Genotype Tissue Expression Project (GTEx) aims to describe tissue requesters' approach to discussions about donation to GTEx and to assess the determinants of families' and patients' willingness to donate to GTEx. It also explores ethical issues such as privacy, risks, and release of incidental findings and recommend best practices for conducting authorizations and training requesters.
The purpose of this study is to validate a clinical decision rule for the management of minor head trauma in infants aged less than two years, constructed with the intention of minimizing the rate of computed tomography scans ordering.
Evaluate the reproducibility and validate a posteriori a new rule of clinical decision on a multi-center population of children with a post-chemotherapy febrile neutropenia
All clinical practice includes decision making, and sometimes you are ethically challenging because of the consequences it will bring to the patient, the health professional or society in general. Ethics seeks the best solution to a better treatment and seeks to increase the quality of life of the patient with correct decision making. Ethical / bioethical considerations are of a generic nature, and do not apply to specific situations. Therefore, it is suggested that there shoul...
The study is a prospective multi-centre observational study to evaluate a portable magnetocardiograph device for the rule-out of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in patients who present to the emergency department with chest pain and other symptoms consistent with ACS.
A prospective multi-centre observational study to validate the diagnostic accuracy of a transportable magnetocardiograph device for acute coronary syndrome (ACS), focusing on rule-out capability, in patients who present to the emergency department with chest pain symptoms consistent with ACS.
Main Outcome: To assess the effectiveness of new intraoperative technologies in the resection of intracranial tumors. Design: Prospective observational study. Method: Prospective observational study of the use and effectiveness of intraoperative neuronavigation ultrasound, intraoperative tractography, intraoperative fluorescence, advanced neuronavigation and intraoperative neurophysiology in the resection of intracranial supratentorial tumors. Number of patients:...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients who meet the criteria of the clinical prediction rule for spinal manipulation may respond more favorably to repeated exercises according to a direction of preference (what makes the symptoms decrease). The investigators do not know which of these two commonly-used treatments (manipulation or specific exercise) is better to treat low back pain.
There is a significant debate whether local infiltration techniques may be a method to treat complicated chronic pain syndromes, e.g. refractory headache. Until now there is a lack of evidence regarding efficacy of this treatment especially in long term follow up. Similarly, indication and management are under debate. Aim of this trial is to analyse pain scores during first treatment with anaesthesiological infiltration series.
Every year > 50.000 people in Denmark are hospitalized with a suspected acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The majority has other explanations of their chest discomfort and most are discharged again without any initiation of treatment. Still, the suspicion dictates acute ambulance deployment, hospital admission to a highly specialized cardiac unit, cardiac surveillance and cardiac troponin blood sampling. The novel biomarker copeptin, a byproduct of vasopressin production, is r...
Registry of an interventional Study-proved Strategy (BIC-8) using Copeptin and Troponin for the Early Rule-Out of Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) in Patients with Suspected Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) and a low-to intermediate risk profile.
This study evaluates whether the implementation of a prediction rule for postoperative nausea and vomiting changes physician behaviour, improves patient outcome and improves cost-effectiveness of treatment of postoperative nausea and vomiting.
One case of unsuccessful penile transplantation has been reported from China. The patient had suffered an industrial machine accident and lost his penis to the level of the pubic skin. Unfortunately the patient's wife insisted at about two weeks post-operatively that the organ be removed. At the time of surgical removal the penis was viable, except for a degree of superficial skin necrolysis. This has sparked debate on ethical issues regarding penile transplantation. South Afri...
