While screening for dementia in patients without symptoms is not recommended by the United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF), screening in those presenting with symptoms may help patients and caregivers prepare for the future. When selecting which screening tool to use in a primary care office, one needs to consider practicality, feasibility, applicability, and psychometric properties. The MIS, MiniCog, PhotoTest, and GPCOG have been found to have short administration times, good accuracy, and applicability for a broad range of patient education and backgrounds...

CLINICAL QUESTION: In menopausal women who experience regular hot flashes, does treatment with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) reduce the frequency and/or severity of hot flashes? ANSWER: Yes. Review of the literature suggests that treatment with SSRIs or SNRIs reduces the frequency and severity of hot flashes in menopausal and post-menopausal women. Studies demonstrated that paroxetine (Paxil), citalopram (Celexa) and escitolapram (Lexapro) were the most effective SSRIs, and venlafaxine (Effexor) was the most effective first line SNRI, with desvenlafaxine as a second option...

A 33 year-old female at 38 weeks gestation with a history of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Type 1 of the upper extremities, diagnosed 13 years prior to this admission, was scheduled for an elective cesarean section (C-Section). She refused neuraxial anesthesia and requested general anesthesia. This abstract discusses the general anesthesia steps taken to pre-empt recurrence of CRPS symptoms.

REVIEW
Abigail R Norris, Jan Estes Miller
CLINICAL QUESTION: In adults and adolescents using cigarettes and/or smokeless tobacco, is motivational interviewing (MI) more effective compared to counseling, medical therapies or no intervention for improving tobacco cessation? ANSWER: yes. Evidence is modest but conclusive that using MI alone or in conjunction with other therapies results in greater rates of tobacco cessation compared to interventions that did not include MI. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE OF THE ANSWER: A. DATE SEARCH WAS CONDUCTED: September 2015...

Clifford G Wlodaver, Chris May
The multiple drug resistant organism (MDRO) and Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) epidemics are progressing relentlessly. Antibiotic stewardship (ABS) has evolved to confront these scourges. The Joint Commission has formulated a standard for its implementation and this should promote its use where others have failed. However, precisely how to intervene needs definition. Healthcare workers need practicable guidelines. The article discusses clinical scenarios where antibiotics should be withheld (Table 1), how they should be modified (Table 2) and when they should be discontinued (Table 3), three focal points of ABS...

CLINICAL QUESTION: In adults with chronic pain, do yoga and other meditative movement therapies to improvement in chronic pain symptoms? ANSWER: Yes. However, in each of the studies reviewed, yoga classes were included as part of the pain management regime, sometimes alone and sometimes in tandem with DVDs or audiotapes. We feel that no exercise therapy program should be undertaken without professional coaching from certified, registered and qualified instructors...
