Portal:Feminism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Feminism has altered predominant perspectives in a wide range of areas within Western society, ranging from culture to law. Feminist activists have campaigned for women's legal rights (rights of contract, property rights, voting rights); for rights to bodily integrity and autonomy, for abortion rights, and for reproductive rights (including access to contraception and quality prenatal care); for protection from domestic violence, sexual harassment and rape; for workplace rights, including maternity leave and equal pay; and against other forms of discrimination.

Nosocomial transmission of avian influenza A (H7N9) virus in China: epidemiological investigation

Methods An epidemiological investigation looked at two patients who shared a hospital ward in February 2015, in Quzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. Samples from the patients, close contacts, and local environments were examined by real time reverse transcriptase (rRT) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and viral culture. Haemagglutination inhibition and microneutralisation assays were used to detect specific antibodies to the viruses. Primary outcomes were clinical data, infection source tracing, phylogenetic tree analysis, and serological results.

bmj.h5510-0

A 34 year old woman presented with an extensive cutaneous eruption on the lower limbs and buttocks. She had had atopic dermatitis with recurrent flares until age 22. She currently had idiopathic hirsutism and chronic foot onychodystrophy. Results of fungal culture of the nails three years earlier were negative. She had no personal or family history of psoriasis and no pets. When the lesions first appeared on her knees six months earlier she had consulted her general practitioner. A diagnosis of psoriasis was suspected and daily topical calcipotriol and betamethasone (strength III—potent topical steroid) were prescribed. The treatment was continued even though the lesions worsened and extended to her thighs and buttocks, with intense pruritus and burning. Finally she consulted our dermatological emergency unit.

Critical Care

In a recent article, Balzer et al. [1] reported an unexpected relationship between an initial central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) >80 % on ICU admission and increased morbidity and mortality in cardiac surgery patients. Interestingly, as compared with low (<60 %) or normal (60–80 %) ScvO2 levels, values above 80 % were associated with more acute kidney injury (AKI) and a higher hemodialysis need. This goes against common belief that a higher ScvO2 is a prerequisite for more optimal organ, and in particular kidney, protection.
