It was found that oncological management is suboptimal among Poitevin territory residents. Publications report an inadequate management of symptoms of discomfort related to cancers. The multicentric study will comparate quality of life in patients with and without Cancers in nursing homes, including residents with neurodegenerat...

Continuous Temperature Measurement for Syndromic Surveillance

Is it possible to detect infection before it is clinically apparent? Fever is one indicator of infection. However, until recently, continuous temperature monitoring has not been feasible. With the advent of microelectronics, long battery life, and wireless transmission, it is now possible to continuously measure, record and report body temperature. For a period of 90 days, residents of a long-term care facility will have their body temperature monitored and then those measureme...

CArdio PulmOnary Exercise Testing and IntRAvenous Iron- 'CAPOEIRA-I STUDY'

Red blood cells contain a chemical called haemoglobin which carries oxygen from the lungs around the body. When the amount of haemoglobin is reduced, we say that a patient is 'anaemic'. Anaemia can have many causes, but affects about a third of patients having major surgery in hospital. After their operation these anaemic patients are more likely to suffer serious complications. This may be because the body needs extra oxygen - and so enough haemoglobin - to heal and recover su...

Device for Bacteremia Prevention in Post Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care Unit Patients

Intravenous catheters are often placed in large (central) veins in critically ill patients to provide special medications or frequent blood sampling. The body reacts to the presence of foreign material by forming a biofilm on the surface within the catheter. Either due to the patients condition or to emergency access to these intravenous lines can become infected with bacteria and reside within the biofilm. When bacteria is grown from these lines it is referred to as: a central...

Post-discharge transitional programs to reduce readmissions have shown some success. Telerehabilitation refers to the use of technologies to provide rehabilitation services to people in their homes. Considering the need for long-term follow-up care for people with hip fracture, in-home telerehabilitation could incre...

Impact of the Nurse Visit on Observance of the Intake of Oral Carcinological Treatment in the Elderly

The increasingly used oral anticancer treatments allow the patient to reduce treatment and social constraints to reduce hospitalization costs. The counterpart is a decrease in the monitoring of the correct intake of drugs and the detection of side effects. These two risks are major in the elderly, due to comorbidities, poly-medication and decreased attention. The project objective to evaluate the impact of a bi-weekly nursing visit to the patients' homes for 3 months, compared ...
