Calciphylaxis is a rare disease with a poor prognostic that mostly occurs in patients with renal failure. Diagnosis is difficult and skin biopsy is the gold standard diagnostic procedure, although it may aggravate skin lesions. Identification of the typical cutaneous signs is important to initiate adequate medical care. Several differential diagnoses must be excluded. Treatments should include appropriate pain management, local wound pain, daily dialysis, intravenous sodium thiosulfate treatment, hyperbaric oxygenotherapy, thigh control of calcium-phosphate metabolism and interruption of medications that could contribute to calciphylaxis...

The article extensively covers the historical stages of the development of enteral oxygenation technique. There is shown the long way of scientific research from the first using of "oxygenating" products in the early XX century to undertaken hundred years after attempts of the oxygen introduction into gastrointestinal tract for systemic oxygenation improvement and prevention of intestinal flora translocation in sepsis. On the basis of anatomical and physiological characteristics of the intestinal wall there was shown the possibility of both local and systemic effects of the oxygen introduced into the intestinal tract...

BACKGROUND: Respiratory syncytial virus acute bronchiolitis (RSV-AB) is a major cause of hospital admission among our infants. The immune and inflammatory mechanisms involved in the RSV-AB and factors influencing severity have not been clearly established, although an imbalanced Th1 and Th2 response seems to be crucial. OBJECTIVES: To assess the local and systemic inflammatory response in RSV-AB. To find a possible marker of clinical severity and/or oxygen requirements...

COPD exacerbations with respiratory acidosis are difficult to manage, especially when OSA and obesity are associated. The solution is the use of noninvasive ventilation associated with oxygenotherapy in order to correct the hypercapnia, hypoxemia and respiratory acidosis and to prevent the invasive mechanical ventilation. Early respiratory rehabilitation and the use of a domiciliary ventilatory support after the acute episode could be a part of the management for these patients. We present a modality of therapeutical approach through a clinical case...

We report a case of anterior thigh compartment syndrome, which occurred after man's thigh was bruised after flipping repeatedly over his bike and being hit by the frame of the bike nearly at around 6 pm. The next day at 1:30 am, he was admitted to the hospital. The initial presentation was a hematoma, and the patient was kept in bed with local cooling. The compartment syndrome of the thigh (CST) diagnosis was made around 6:00 pm when the level of pain was interpreted as disproportionate to the treated lesion; anterior compartment pressure measure was 84 mmHg...

Bronchodilatation is preferably achieved with beta-2-agonists (SABA), salbutamol. Therapy is intensified with anticholinergics (ipratropium bromide monohydrate). A combined preparation may also be used (ipratropium bromide monohydrate and fenoterole hydrobromide). Methylxantines (theophylline) are the second line option. Corticosteroids are administered orally (prednisolone) or intravenously (methylprednisolone or hydrocortisone). Patients who have problems expectorating are administered mucolytics (ambroxol hydrochloride or bromhexine hydrochloride)...

Pre-irradiation dental care depends on teeth health, fields and dose of irradiation, compliance to fluorides, cessation of tobacco and psychosocial cofactors. Dental care aims at preventing complications and preserving the quality of life (eating, speech, and aesthetics). The role of hyperbaric oxygenotherapy for the prevention of osteoradionecrosis after teeth removal on the mandibula in areas receiving 50 Gy or more is still controversial. Medical treatments may be sufficient for early stages of osteoradionecrosis (antibiotics, pain killers, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs as well as clodronate, vitamin E, pentoxifyllin)...
