Immune (idiopathic) thrombocytopenic purpura: rituximab | key-points-from-the-evidence | Advice | NICE

Most of the evidence for using rituximab in adults with immune thrombocytopenic purpura comes from observational studies, with no comparator arm. The populations in the included studies varied, as did the platelet count considered to represent an overall response or complete response. The randomised controlled trials (RCTs) discussed in this evidence summary had a number of limitations, including small numbers of participants. All of these factors make it difficult to draw firm conclusions from the evidence.

no-plasmalyte-in-cms-sepsis-bundle-does-this-matter

CMS recently produced a new sepsis measure/bundle that has many EM and critical care docs up in arms.  I’m not going to focus on their definition of sepsis (save your rage for later), but instead on the fact that their definition of resuscitative crystalloid specifies ONLY LR or NS.  So to be truly within guidelines, isolyte/plasmalyte is not allowed.  Does this matter?

Interventions for treating shoulder fractures in adults | Cochrane

Fracture of the top end of the upper arm bone (proximal humerus) is a common injury in older people. It is often called a shoulder fracture. The bone typically fractures (breaks) just below the shoulder, usually after a fall. Most of these fractures occur without breaking the skin lying over the fracture. The injured arm is often supported in a sling until the fracture heals sufficiently to allow shoulder movement. More severe (displaced) fractures may be treated surgically. This may involve fixing the fracture fragments together by various means. Alternatively, the top of the fractured bone may be replaced (half 'shoulder' replacement: hemiarthroplasty). More rarely, the whole joint, thus including the joint socket, is replaced (total 'shoulder' replacement). Physiotherapy is often used to help restore function.

Rectal thermometer should be used for accurate temperature reading, analysis finds

Most of the commonly used peripheral thermometers—those that are used under the arm or orally—do not accurately measure body temperature, a meta-analysis published in Annals of Internal Medicine has found.1 At extremes of body temperature, peripheral temperature measurements may be as much as 1-2°C higher or lower than actual body temperature, the study found.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome - Causes, Treatment & Therapies - Gold Canyon AZ

The Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is an unceasing pain condition that often affects one of the limbs (that can be arms, legs, hands, or feet), generally after an injury or trauma to that particular limb. Complex regional pain syndrome is believed to be caused due to damage, or malfunctioning of the peripheral and central nervous systems. The central nervous system encompasses the brain and spinal cord; whereas the peripheral nervous system includes the nerve signaling from the brain and the spinal cord to the other parts of the body. The Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is exemplified by prolonged or a chronic pain and mild or dramatic changes in the color of the skin, temperature or even swelling in the affecting area.

Treatment for superficial infusion thrombophlebitis of the upper extremity | Cochrane

Superficial thrombophlebitis is an inflammatory condition of the veins just below the surface of the skin. The development of superficial thrombophlebitis frequently complicates the insertion of needles into the veins for catheters to give medication or fluids in hospitalised patients. The best treatment for these blood clots in the hands and arms remains unclear. While local treatment has the potential to improve the painful symptoms and patient discomfort, it may not prevent complications, including infection or the extension or transit of the clot into the deep vein system.
