A radiological dispersive device (RDD) spreads radioactive material, complicates the treatment of physical injuries, raises cancer risk, and induces disproportionate fear. Simulating such an event enables more effective and efficient utilization of the triage and treatment resources of staff, facilities, and space. Fast simulation can give detail on events in progress or future events. The resources for triage and treatment of contaminated trauma victims can differ for pure exposure individuals, while discouraging the "worried well" from presenting in the crisis phase by media announcement would relieve pressure on hospital facilities...

The goals of distal radius fracture treatment in patients above 65 years of age would not change over time if the fracture were the only factor to consider. However, people change, and fixation methods also change. Since this fracture heals in nearly every case and volar plates have eliminated the worry of malunion, we are left with two main goals. In active patients with weakened bones, the aim is to help them regain their quality of life as quickly as possible while avoiding iatrogenic conditions. This compromise is possible because of new tools-but at what price?...

BACKGROUND: Distress is common among cancer and surgical patients and can lead to worse outcomes if untreated. The objective of this study was to explore sources of distress among colorectal cancer patients undergoing surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a qualitative study using in-depth, semistructured, one-on-one interviews in an academic setting. Patients were recruited if they had a pathologically confirmed diagnosis of colon or rectal cancer. Purposive sampling was used to recruit patients who were about to undergo (preoperative), or had recently undergone (postoperative), curative resection for colorectal cancer...

. Based on the publication in this issue of AI&R of a metanalytic assessment of the degree and the quality of the available evidences on the clinical efficacy of an otherwise diffuse utilization of nutritional integration on a spectrum of fragile patients, the methodological comment is focused on the limitations, biases, misleading implications which are today threatening the role of metanalytical analyses of existing literature, to produce useful-reliable evidences in areas where the representativeness of the source of data is substantially scarce...

Broadly, species of arthropods infesting livestock are grouped into flies (biting and non-biting), fleas, lice (biting and sucking), ticks (soft and hard), and mites (burrowing, non-burrowing, and follicular). Among which, biting and non-biting flies and ticks are the potent vectors for many bacterial, viral, rickettsial, and protozoan diseases. Vectors of livestock are having economic significance on three points (1) direct losses from their bite and annoyance, worries, and psychological disturbances produced during the act of biting and feeding, (2) diseases they transmit, and (3) expenditure incurred for their control...

Objectives Understanding why some women actively decline cervical screening could contribute to tailored intervention development. We explored reasons for non-participation in cervical screening among women who had made an active decision not to attend in the future. We also explored interest in human papillomavirus self-sampling. Methods In a population-based survey of women in Great Britain, home-based computer-assisted interviews were carried out with screening eligible women. Women reported their intention to attend for screening when next invited...

Better selection of patients with treatment-resistant depression for high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (HF-rTMS) would make the procedure more efficient. The objective of this study was to search for clinical and neurophysiologic predictors of therapeutic response with a special focus on the bipolar population. Forty patients (30 bipolar) underwent 20 daily sessions of HF-rTMS. Clinical outcome measures included the 21-item Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, the Beck Depression Inventory, the Clinical Global Impression, and the Patient Global Impression...

Diabetes and prediabetes are increasing in prevalence, corresponding to epidemic rates of obesity. Hispanic adults with prediabetes are 1.7 times more likely than non-Hispanic whites to progress to diabetes. We set out to understand health beliefs of Hispanic adults and, with that knowledge, facilitate tailored messaging to promote patient activation and lifestyle change. Using the Risk Perception Survey for Developing Diabetes along with demographic and lifestyle intervention interest questions, a 34-question survey was mailed to a registry of Hispanic adults with a diagnosis of prediabetes and an HbA1c between 5...

Introduction: Understanding the breadth of patients' support needs is important for the delivery of person-centered care, particularly in progressive long-term conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Existing reviews identify important aspects of managing life with COPD with which patients may need support (support needs); however, none of these comprehensively outlines the full range of support needs that patients can experience. We therefore sought to systematically determine the full range of support needs for patients with COPD to inform development of an evidence-based tool to enable person-centered care...

Case A 45-year-old man presented at the emergency department (ED) with stomach pain since eight days. The patient was not worried about his symptoms and requested only pain relief. The emergency physician requested a consult of the gastroenterologist. Clinical examination was unremarkable. However, 12-lead ECG and ischemic markers were suggestive of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) which led to admission at the cardiology department. Despite delayed presentation, the patient was still referred for urgent coronary angiogram after receiving heparin, ticagrelor and acetylsalicylic acid because of persistent pain...

Recent studies on the Zarit Burden Interview (ZBI) support the existence of a unique factor, worry about caregiving performance (WaP), beyond role and personal strain. Our current study aims to confirm the existence of WaP within the multidimensionality of ZBI and to determine if predictors of WaP differ from the role and personal strain. We performed confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) on 466 caregiver-patient dyads to compare between one-factor (total score), two-factor (role/personal strain), three-factor (role/personal strain and WaP), and four-factor models (role strain split into two factors)...

BACKGROUND: Recent progress in understanding the genetic basis of breast cancer and widely publicized reports of celebrities undergoing risk-reducing mastectomy (RRM) have increased interest in RRM as a method of preventing breast cancer. This is an update of a Cochrane Review first published in 2004 and previously updated in 2006 and 2010. OBJECTIVES: (i) To determine whether risk-reducing mastectomy reduces death rates from any cause in women who have never had breast cancer and in women who have a history of breast cancer in one breast, and (ii) to examine the effect of risk-reducing mastectomy on other endpoints, including breast cancer incidence, breast cancer mortality, disease-free survival, physical morbidity, and psychosocial outcomes...
