The aim was to study the ultrastructure of cytoplasmic fragments along with the effect of cosmetic micromanipulation (CM) on the morphology and development of vitrified-warmed embryos as well as assisted reproductive technology (ART) outcomes. A total of 96 frozen embryo transfer (FET) cycles were included in this prospective randomized study. They were divided into three groups of CM (n=32), sham (n=32) and control (n=32). In the CM group, the vitrified- warmed embryos were subjected to fragments and coarse granules removal (cosmetic micromanipulation) after laser assisted zona hatching (LAH); sham group subjected only to LAH and no intervention was taken for the control group...

PURPOSE: Inadvertent hypothermia is a common problem in the operating room. This can contribute to many unfavorable outcomes --rising costs, increased complications, and higher morbidity rates. DESIGN: This review determined the optimal method and time to prewarm a surgical patient to prevent perioperative hypothermia. METHODS: CINAHL and PubMed were searched. Fourteen articles were ultimately included in this review. FINDINGS: Based on the literature reviewed, it was suggested that forced-air warming was most effective in preventing perioperative hypothermia...

PURPOSE: Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia is a common problem for patients undergoing surgery. Heat redistribution from the body's core to the periphery after induction of anesthesia is the major contributor. DESIGN: A prospective randomized controlled trial was conducted to determine if reflective blankets are more effective than cotton blankets in reducing the core-peripheral temperature gradient and increasing peripheral compartment heat content during the preoperative phase among adult patients undergoing elective surgery of less than 1 hour...

Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM) manifests as hyperviscosity syndrome. Cryoglobulinemia, which may increase blood viscosity or induce thrombosis in association with decreased body temperature, can occur in combination with WM. We describe the management of an 82-year-old woman with WM, hyperviscosity syndrome, and cryoglobulinemia who required open aortic valve replacement. Decreased body temperature in this patient was prevented during cardiopulmonary bypass by using a forced air warming system and normothermic cardioplegia with continuous warm blood cardioplegia perfusion...

In medicine, it is critical that clinicians demonstrate both empathy (perceived as warmth) and competence. Perceptions of these qualities are often intuitive and are based on nonverbal behavior. Emphasizing both warmth and competence may prove problematic, however, because there is evidence that they are inversely related in other settings. We hypothesize that perceptions of physician competence will instead be positively correlated with perceptions of physician warmth and empathy, potentially due to changing conceptions of the physician's role...

This nonhuman simulation study was conducted to determine the decrease in temperature that occurred to 1-L bags of normal saline in a cold environment. The bags were warmed to 39°C and administered through intravenous (IV) tubing at a set flow rate while in a cold environment. The goal was to determine if there was a significant decrease in fluid temperature from the bag to the catheter site. Three trials were completed at temperatures of 0°C, -7°C, -12°C, and 22°C (control). Each bag of normal saline was warmed to 39°C using the SoftSack IV Fluid Warmer (Smithworks Med Inc, Lindale, TX)...

BACKGROUND: Simulation training is increasingly being used as part of the undergraduate medical curriculum, but it remains time and faculty member intensive. To improve efficacy, videos have been used prior to the simulation of practical procedures; however, using videos prior to simulation training concerning the management of patients who are unwell has not been investigated. The aim of this project was to see whether clinical decision-making and non-technical skills can be improved if a video is used prior to simulation training, and uniquely to enhance the authenticity we filmed it using a first-person perspective...

In multiple sclerosis (MS), increases in body temperature result in transient worsening of clinical symptoms (heat-sensitivity/Uhthoff's phenomenon). While the impact of heat-sensitivity on efferent physiological function has been investigated, the effects of heat stress on afferent sensory function in MS are unknown. Hence, we quantified afferent thermosensory function in MS following exercise-induced increases in body temperature with a novel quantitative sensory test. Eight relapsing-remitting MS patients (3M/5F; 51...

BACKGROUND: Pink pulseless hand syndrome is a rare condition of vascular injury due to distal humerus fracture. It is characterized by radial and ulnar pulselessness in a complex of good hand perfusion which can remain pink and warm. The management and treatment of this condition is still very debated. METHODS: We report four cases of arm traumas which occurred in pediatric patients. In all cases, after the fixation of the fracture by the orthopedic surgeon, the clinical evaluation and duplex ultrasound demonstrated the so called "pink pulseless hand syndrome"...

The benefit of endometrial scratch (ES) prior to embryo transfer is controversial. Systemic analysis has confirmed its potential benefit, especially in women with repeated IVF failures, yet most studies have focused on fresh embryo transfer, and its effect on vitrified-warmed embryo transfer (FET) cycles is yet to be explored. We hereby present our prospective, double-blind, randomized controlled study on the evaluation of the implantation and pregnancy rate after ES prior to natural-cycle FET. A total of 299 patients underwent natural-cycle FET and were randomized to receive ES (n = 115) or endocervical manipulation as control (n = 114) prior to FET cycle, and a total of 196 patients had embryo transfer (93 patients in each group)...
