Automated treponemal immunoassays are used for syphilis screening with the reverse sequence algorithm; discordant results (e.g., enzyme immunoassay [EIA]-reactive, reactive plasma reagin [RPR]-non-reactive) are resolved with a second treponemal test. We conducted a study to determine automated immunoassay signal strength values consistently correlating with reactive confirmatory treponemal testing.We conducted a cross-sectional analysis of four automated immunoassays: BioPlex 2200 microbead immunoassay (MBIA), LIAISON chemiluminesence immunoassay (CIA), ADVIA-Centaur CIA, and TrepSure EIA, and three manual assays: Treponema Pallidum Particle Agglutination (TP-PA), Fluorescent Treponemal Antibody-Absorption (FTA-ABS) test, INNO-LIA line immunoassay...

The importance of pertussis toxin (PT) IgA testing in the diagnosis of recent pertussis infection remains unclear. The contribution of PT IgA to the diagnosis of recent pertussis was reviewed in two separate analyses. Firstly, an evaluation of two new automated assays [DiaSorin Liaison (DL), Italy] for PT IgG and PT IgA provided an opportunity to assess the contribution of PT IgA testing to PT IgG results. Secondly, a retrospective review of results from the PT IgA assay currently in use [Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology (SNP) PT IgA] was performed from 2013 to 2015 (n=63,474)...

The purpose of this organizational case study is to describe the complexities librarians face when serving a multi-campus institution that supports both a joint-use library and expanding health sciences academic partnerships. In a system without a centralized health science library administration, liaison librarians are identifying dispersed programs and user groups and collaborating to define their unique service and outreach needs within a larger land-grant university. Using a team-based approach, health sciences librarians are communicating to integrate research and teaching support, systems differences across dispersed campuses, and future needs of a new community-based medical program...

Literature reports suggest that up to 30% of dermatology patients have associated psychiatric co-morbidity. A psychodermatology liaison (PD) clinic is essential to deal with such patients, which is almost non-existent in the Indian scenario. In order to report the working pattern of such a clinic and to determine its efficacy with the help of Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) and Short Assessment of Patient Satisfaction (SAPS) questionnaires, we investigated patients with suspected psychocutaneous diseases in an open-labelled two-year prospective study...

Neuropsychiatry is a specialized clinical, academic and scientific discipline with its field located in the borderland territory between neurology and psychiatry. In this article, we approach the theoretical definition of neuropsychiatry, and in order to address the practical aspects of the discipline, we describe the profile of a neuropsychiatric liaison service in the setting of a large hospital for neurological diseases in a middle-income country. An audit of consecutive in-patients requiring neuropsychiatric assessment at the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery of Mexico is reported, comprising a total of 1212 patients...

The Ugandan government is committed to scaling-up proven HIV prevention strategies including safe male circumcision, and innovative strategies are needed to increase circumcision uptake. The aim of this study was to assess the acceptability and feasibility of implementing a soccer-based intervention ("Make The Cut") among schoolboys in a peri-urban district of Uganda. The intervention was led by trained, recently circumcised "coaches" who facilitated a 60-minute session delivered in schools, including an interactive penalty shoot-out game using metaphors for HIV prevention, sharing of the coaches' circumcision story, group discussion and ongoing engagement from the coach to facilitate linkage to male circumcision...

Neonatal ischemic brain injury causes permanent motor-deficit cerebral palsy. Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a very serious condition that can result in death and disability. In 1997, we reported that irreversible neuronal cell damage is induced by the elevation of intracellular Ca ion concentration that has occurred in sequence after excess accumulation of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate during ischemia. We also reported that hypothermia was effective in treating ischemic brain damage in rats by suppressing energy loss and raising intracellular Ca ion concentration...

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). ILCOR was formed in 1992 to create a forum for collaboration among principal resuscitation councils worldwide. Since then, ILCOR has established and distinguished itself for its pioneering vision and leadership in resuscitation science. By systematically assessing the evidence for resuscitation standards and guidelines and by identifying national and regional differences, ILCOR reached consensus on international resuscitation guidelines in 2000, and on international science and treatment recommendations in 2005, 2010 and 2015...

This study aimed to use nuanced statistical methods in a large UK sample to identify and explore the factors associated with different types of frequent user of Emergency Departments (EDs) who are referred to Mental Health Liaison Services (MHLS). A retrospective 5-year longitudinal study was conducted of all attenders (n = 23,718) of four London EDs who were referred to their MHLS. Longitudinal group-based trajectory analysis of monthly MHLS referrals enabled identification of factors which may contribute to membership of the resulting groups...

Fracture liaison services prevent hip fractures by identifying other osteoporotic fractures that generally debut at a younger age. However, this study showed that a minority of hip fracture patients are already known to the health services through having had prior osteoporotic fractures. Identification of vertebral fractures in particular is lacking. INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of prior major osteoporotic fractures (MOF) in the prior 10 years preceding hip fracture in order to provide information about the potential for prevention of hip fractures by fracture liaison services (FLS)...

INTRODUCTION: Do Not Attempt Resuscitation (DNAR)decisions have traditionally formed the basis of ceiling of care discussions. However, poor quality discussions can lead to high patient and relative dissatisfaction, generating hospital complaints. Treatment escalation plans (TEPs) aim to highlight the wider remit of treatment options with a focus on effective communication. We aimed to improve TEP discussions and documentation at Weston General Hospital by introducing a standardised form...

BACKGROUND: The importance of handovers has been recognised and proven in clinical practice. In liaison psychiatry, this is particularly important due to the high turnover of patients seen, the shift work pattern and the number of member staff engaging in this process. An Audit on the Quality of Handovers was carried out within a Psychiatric Liaison team of a General hospital in UK with an intention to review and improve this. METHOD: Handovers were evaluated against the gold standard of the SBAR tool (Situation/Background/Assessment/Recommendations) over a period of 4 weeks...
