Niamh Appleby, Daniel Angelov
Elevated platelet counts are frequently encountered in hospital medicine and arise from both physiological and pathological mechanisms. Thrombocytosis may be secondary, reflecting an inflammatory state, iron deficiency, recent surgery or point towards an underlying neoplasm. Thrombocytosis may be the presenting sign of solid tumours and haematological conditions. The discovery of the activating mutations affecting thrombopoiesis led to greater understanding of the pathobiology of essential thrombocythaemia and other myeloproliferative neoplasms...

Omp Jolobe
Unsuccessful titration of endocrine replacement therapy may signify the coexistence of an unrecognized disorder which alters the response to replacement therapy. Examples include recurrent hypoglycaemia when type 1 diabetes mellitus coexists with either Addison's disease or coeliac disease. Recurrent Addisonian crisis occurs when Addison's disease coexists with thyrotoxicosis. Conversely, in a patient with Addison's disease, recognition and treatment of coexisting coeliac disease may facilitate a reduction in corticosteroid dosage...

Nuno M Borges, Jecko Thachil
Coagulation testing has long been part of the routine assessment of the preoperative patient, with the aim of identifying those with a bleeding disorder who might suffer significant perioperative bleeding. Some of the issues surrounding this involve the low prevalence of bleeding disorders in the general population, and the implications of further testing for both the patient and the health-care system. Studies suggest that this practice is not evidence based and is considered to be outdated. Most guidelines now advise against routine coagulation screens before surgery, and instead recommend taking a thorough personal and family history of bleeding in order to determine the need for further investigations...

#15
Musfira Shakeel, Jecko Thachil
Venous thromboembolism most commonly affects older patients. Despite the high incidence in this population, challenges remain in terms of the understanding of its presentation, diagnosis and management. Old age is associated with multi-morbidities which may complicate the diagnosis of venous thromboembolism as signs or symptoms may be attributed to underlying medical conditions. The presence of certain comorbidities (such as congestive cardiac failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) also increases the risk of venous thromboembolism, but could mimic the clinical features of pulmonary embolism...

#16
Jonathan Ka Mills, Judy McKimm
In health care, a post-mortem might be required after a patient has died, to try and establish why, and sometimes when and how, the patient died. Many projects are likely to fail, with reasons including the lack of tools to facilitate change, and failure to consider the organizational and environmental situation a change project faces. When projects or initiatives fail, clinicians often carry out a 'post-mortem', trying to understand the factors that contributed to the failure, with the aim of learning lessons and not repeating the same mistakes...

#18
Siba P Paul, Ruby Paul, Paul A Heaton
Accidental hanging is rare in childhood but is often fatal. Window blind cords pose a particular and unique risk to young children in the UK, accounting for one to two deaths annually. These accidents are frequently associated with non-adherence to the safety instructions provided by the manufacturers. Early discovery of the child and initiation of effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation at the site of the incident are likely to improve the outcome. Prolonged suspension, children who are pulseless at first contact by the emergency paramedic responder, and patients with prolonged periods of remaining in asystole before return of spontaneous circulation after starting cardiopulmonary resuscitation are unlikely to have intact neurological survival...
