Background. : The current US opioid epidemic is attributed to the large volume of prescribed opioids. This study analyzed the contribution of different medical specialties to overall opioids by evaluating the pill counts and morphine milligram equivalents (MMEs) of opioid prescriptions, stratified by provider specialty, and determined temporal trends. Methods. : This was an analysis of the Ohio prescription drug monitoring program database, which captures scheduled medication prescriptions filled in the state as well as prescriber specialty...

This study assesses one area where disparities may exist: recognition awards. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether female physicians are underrepresented among recognition award recipients by the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R). DESIGN: Surveillance study...

Introduction: Only a selected proportion of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients are managed in secondary care. The aim of this study was to characterize disease severity, treatment and structure of secondary care for COPD in Sweden. Methods: Information was collected from 29 of 33 existing secondary care units of respiratory medicine in Sweden, using both individual data from 373 consecutively enrolled COPD patients with Global initiative on Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) stage III-IV and a structural questionnaire about available resources at the units...

Although limb salvage is now possible for many high-energy open fractures and crush injuries to the distal tibia, ankle, hindfoot, and midfoot, orthotic options are limited. The Intrepid Dynamic Exoskeletal Orthosis (IDEO) is a custom, energy-storing carbon fiber orthosis developed for trauma patients undergoing limb salvage. The IDEO differs from other orthoses in that it allows patients with ankle weakness to have more normal ankle biomechanics and increased ankle power. This article describes the design of a study to evaluate the effectiveness of the IDEO when delivered together with a high-intensity, sports medicine-based approach to rehabilitation...

Pregabalin is often used for the treatment of neuropathic pain in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). We reported a patient with C5 [S(C5/C6)] ASIA Impairment Scale C SCI due to cervical myelopathy who presented CO2 retention when taking a therapeutic dosage of pregabalin. An 88-year-old patient with cervical SCI was transferred to the department of physical medicine and rehabilitation. When he had transferred, his neuropathic pain had been treated with 150-mg pregabalin per day (75 mg twice a day); however, he still exhibited severe neuropathic pain with a Numeric Pain Rating Scale score of 7 to 8...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of burn patients is very challenging because burn injuries are one of the most severe traumas that can be experienced. The effect of music therapy on burn patients has been widely reported, but the results have been inconsistent. Thus, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials in burn patients to determine the effect of music during treatments. METHODS: We searched a variety of electronic databases, including MEDLINE (via PubMed), EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Psychinfo, VIP Database for Chinese Technical Periodicals (VIP) and China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) for relevant trials on the basis of predetermined eligibility criteria...

Introduction: After the reform of the German Medical Licensure Act of 2003, Rehabilitation, Naturopathy and Physical Medicine were integrated into one discipline to be taught in Medical University. The aim of this survey is to determine the outcome of this change by evaluating the current status of education of these three disciplines based on the experience and satisfaction reported by lecturers responsible for teaching these subjects to medical students. Methods: A questionnaire-based survey. A paper version of the questionnaire for each discipline was posted to each Medical University in Germany...

BACKGROUND: OnabotulinumtoxinA is approved for the treatment of upper and lower limb spasticity in adults. Guidance on common postures and onabotulinumtoxinA injection paradigms for upper limb spasticity has been developed using a Delphi Panel. However, similar guidance for lower limb spasticity has not been established. OBJECTIVE: To define a clinically recommended treatment paradigm using onabotulinumtoxinA for each common posture among patients with post-stroke lower-limb spasticity (PSLLS); to identify the most common PSLLS aggregate postures...

REVIEW
Donna Bloodworth, Sindhu Pandit, Patrick Mullan, Faye C Tan
Rehabilitation Traumatology has developed within Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation as a specialized area of knowledge in which the physiatrist works with the Traumatology team to enhance the functional outcome of trauma patients. The American Heritage Dictionary defines Traumatology as "the branch of medicine that deals with the treatment of serious wounds, injuries, and disabilities" [1]. It defines rehabilitate as "to restore to good health or useful life, as through therapy and education" [1]. Thus the authors propose Rehabilitation Traumatology be "the branch of medicine that deals with the treatment of serious wounds, injuries, and disabilities", "to restore (the patient) to good health or useful life"...

A higher age is usually associated with multimorbidity due to chronic illnesses intermittently aggravated by acute disease and exarcerbation of pre-existing chronic illnesses. Physical and psychological diseases often coexist. Cure in the classical sense should not be the priority of diagnostic and therapeutic decision making, but more a prioritization of patient-oriented care. This includes polypharmacy which most often accompanies multimorbidity. Therapeutic actions and designated endpoints are therefore different from those in younger persons because preservation of functionality and independence is priority, not survival...

Physicians are among those prescribed statins and therefore, subject to potential statin adverse effects (AEs). There is little information on the impact of statin AEs on physicians affected by them. We sought to assess the character and impact of statin AEs occurring in physicians and retired physicians, and to ascertain whether/how personal experience of AEs moderated physicians' attitude toward statin use. Seven active or retired physicians from the United States communicated with the Statin Effects Study group regarding their personal experience of statin AEs...
