BACKGROUND AND AIM: In an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) the communication between nurse and patient, the core of the care, is often hindered by patient's cognitive alterations and critical situation, by devices employed for the mechanical ventilation, and by the clinical and care-giving setting. How to overcome these barriers? How is the relational and communicative approach between nurse and patient unable to express him or herself to be managed? The available literature reveals that studies on communication with difficult patients, such as those treated in ICU are currently scarce...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: This study seeks to provide an in-depth analysis of care-based interaction in the experiences of volunteers working in lenitherapy (pain therapy) through the case study of hospices in Florence, Italy. METHOD: A qualitative method of data collection was chosen: the field research made use of open-ended questionnaires distributed to trained but unspecialised volunteers (V = 32) and to volunteers with hospital-based medical expertise (PV = 35) acting for the Italian Lenitherapy Foundation (FILe) and operating in hospices within the ex-ASL (Local Health Unit) of Florence...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The effectiveness of the treatments carried out in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is guaranteed by a socio-technical ensemble where material resources, scientific knowledge, technological artefacts, social norms, spatial dispositions, and professional practices coexist and constantly interact. This paper intends to penetrate such an ensemble for analysing the moral order produced and maintained in everyday medical practice. METHOD: The results of a case study, carried out in the ICU of a hospital in the north of Italy between 2006 and 2007 are reported...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: Lots of studies describe High Fidelity Simulation (HFS) as an experience well-accepted by the learners. This study has explored doctors and nurses satisfaction levels during HFS sessions, searching the associations with the setting of simulation events (simulation center or on the field simulation). Moreover, we studied the correlation between HFS experience satisfaction levels and the socio-demographic features of the participants. METHODS: Mixed method study, using the Satisfaction of High-Fidelity Simulation Experience (SESAF) questionnaire through an online survey...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Alzheimer's disease is the most common degenerative dementia with a predominantly senile onset. The difficult management of altered behaviour related to this disorder, poorly responsive to pharmacological treatments, has stimulated growth in non-pharmacological interventions, such as music therapy, whose effectiveness has not been supported by the literature up to now. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of video-music therapy on quality of life improvement in Patients affected by Alzheimer's Disease (AD)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: The peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC) have become an alternative to the traditional CVC. PICCs are usually inserted by trained nurses who decided to attend and complete a special training on PICC insertion and management. The present work aimed to investigate the intention of using PICC in a sample of hospital-based nurses using the theory of planned behavior as theoretical framework. METHODS: A cross-sectional design was used in which a questionnaire was delivered to 199 nurses...

In the traditional biomedical model of clinical practice, which assumes a medicine focused on disease, diseases are considered as biological or psycho-physiological universal entities. This explanation, although necessary, is not enough. Several authors have recently become interested in the use of narrative practices in the medical care setting, underlining the increasing importance of "a patient-centered approach", a "relationship -centered care" and "narrative medicine". Even in Nursing, the challenge was to combine two models that seemed incompatible: the Evidence-Based Nursing Model and the Narrative-Based Nursing Model...

The case study of PUNTOZERO as an open web lab for activities, research and support to 5 Master's courses for the health professions is described. A virtual learning environment integrated in a much wider network including social networks and open resources was experimented on for five Master's Courses for the health professions at the University of Parma. A social learning approach might be applied by the engagement of motivated and skilled tutors. This is not only needed for the improvement and integration of the digital and collaborative dimension in higher education, but it aims to introduce issues and biases of emerging e-health and online networking dimensions for future healthcare professionals...

PURPOSE: We aimed at investigating bowel function in children and adolescents with anorectal malformations (ARMs) and assess their quality of life (QoL), in order to define a personal program of bowel management improving both clinical condition and self-confidence. METHODS: A total of 55 patients treated for ARM by Posterior Sagittal Ano-Recto-Plasty (PSARP) from 2000 to 2014 were included into the study. The parents of 41 patients answered two telephone questionnaires about the parents' self-efficacy and about QoL (GIQLI)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Individuals with ischemia during cardiac stress-test (cST) have a high risk of developing myocardial infarction (MI), but the pathophysiologic mechanism has never been clarified. It is thought that non flow-limiting coronary plaques (FLP) cause more often MI than FLP, but this is in contradiction with the predictive value of cST. We investigated the correspondence between reversible ischemia and location of subsequent MI, since functional assessment shortly before MI could clarify whether the culprit plaque is a FLP or not...

Congenital pulmonary malformations represent a broad spectrum of anomalies that may result in varied clinical and pathologic pictures, ranging from recurrent pulmonary infections and acute respiratory distress syndrome, which require timely drug therapy, up to large space-occupying lesions needing surgical treatment. This classification includes three distinct anatomical and pathological entities, represented by Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid Malformation, Bronchopulmonary Sequestration and Congenital Lobar Emphysema...

Gallstone ileus is a rare case of mechanical intestinal obstruction observed in patients with history of cholelithiasis or cholecystitis. Its diagnosis is difficult and it is characterized by high mortality rate. Diagnostic Imaging plays an important role in the management of patients with suspected gallstone ileus because an early diagnosis could reduce the mortality. Abdominal Computed Tomography (CT) is the preferred modality because of its rapid diagnosis. Surgery remains the gold standard treatment.

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: Flexible flatfoot is one of the most common deformities in pediatric orthopaedics. Arthroeresis procedures are designed to correct this deformity. Among them, calcaneo-stop is a procedure with both biomechanical and proprioceptive properties. There could be other surgical procedure combined, such as a percutaneous Achilles tendon lengthening and the Gould tibialis posterior retension or Young tibialis anterior navicular tenosuspension. This study analyzed the clinical and sonographic results of 36 patients following flexible flatfoot surgical treatment with a calcaneo-stop arthroeresis combined with Achilles lengthening and a Young procedure...

Refractory esophageal strictures are a common sequela of caustic ingestion. If endoscopic dilation becomes ineffective, esophagectomy represents the only therapeutic option. The minimally invasive approach, specifically the thoracoscopic access in prone position, may allow postoperative morbidity to be reduced. We present the first case described in the Literature of minimally invasive esophagectomy in prone position for a long-term failure of endoscopic dilation after caustic ingestion.

BACKGROUND: Gastric cancer mortality rates have remained relatively unchanged over the past decades, in spite of progressive decrease in incidence. Nodal status represents a key factor for prognostic assessment, allowing a tailored-made adjuvant therapy for the patients. The aim of this study is to evaluate the prognostic influence of different nodal involvement indicators on the overall survival in a large series of patients submitted to gastrectomy at our Institution. METHODS: we retrospectively collected data from 634 newly diagnosed patients with gastric cancer who underwent curative gastrectomy, with D1/D2 lymphadenectomy during the last 20 years...
