Ebola Virus Disease - MOA Animation - Scientific Animations

We all hear about Ebola being a deadly disease, and indeed it is. The rather agressive virus has already claimed about 10,000 lives. But what really makes Ebola such a deadly virus? Let’s try and understand how Ebola really attacks the cells within the body which in turn leads to multiple organ failure and then exigency. This 3D Medical Animation illustrates the Mechanism of Action of the Ebola Virus.

Critical Care

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) remains an important pathogen in pneumonia. Bacteremia may secondarily complicate MRSA pneumonia. The epidemiology and outcomes associated with bacteremia in the setting of MRSA pneumonia are unknown. We sought to describe the prevalence of bacteremia in MRSA pneumonia and its impact on hospital mortality and length of stay (LOS).

Social Factors Linked to Heart Disease for All

“Poverty and the many stresses that come with social disadvantage have long been linked to cardiovascular disease, but how we live, work, and play has a great impact on heart health for people from a broad range of economic and cultural backgrounds,” explains David Siscovick, MD, MPH, Senior Vice President for Research at The New York Academy of Medicine and Chair of the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Council on Epidemiology and Prevention.

Emergency Medicine Literature of Note: When Anaphylaxis Makes a Comeback

Hey Ryan -- As someone interested in CoI, you might find this piece from Harper's I read several years ago interesting in the context of research on anaphylaxis/allergic emergencies, particularly research using definitions of anaphylaxis derived from an organization like FAAN (now FARE, I guess?): http://harpers.org/archive/2008/01/everyones-gone-nuts/Middle paragraph on the second page, specifically-- the definition they're using in this paper was published by the FAAN medical advisory member mentioned in the Harper's piece and Ms. Munoz-Furlong, and includes recommendations for prescribing Epi Pens for anyone with respiratory/cardiovascular symptoms who thinks they were exposed to an allergen, prompt referral to an allergist, referral to helpful websites/advocacy organizations like FAAN. :-) This is obviously not meant as a criticism of the article or authors--the study appears to be well done and the reputation of the group who produced it obviously speaks for itself. I also don't think Big Epipen has an interest in the epidemiology of biphasic reactions, but in the broader context of anaphylaxis research and public awareness/fear of this outcome, it's always interesting to think about how these relationships might play a role. Also, I went to a Giants game the other night and found myself in a "No Peanut Zone", complete with sponsor-backed t-shirts being handed out, so maybe this was just on my mind a bit. :-)

Strategies for dealing with loss of hearing in adulthood

I greatly enjoyed Ibrahim’s account of hearing loss and cochlear implantation.1 While I suspect that a formal study along the lines of “The epidemiology of cochlear implantation in epidemiologists” would ultimately founder under sample size considerations, I find it interesting to consider one aspect where our preimplantation experience diverged.

Critical Care

Selective digestive decontamination (SDD) and selective oropharyngeal decontamination (SOD) have been associated with reduced mortality and lower ICU-acquired bacteremia and ventilator-associated pneumonia rates in areas with low levels of antibiotic resistance. However, the effect of selective decontamination (SDD/SOD) in areas where multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria are endemic is less clear. It will be important to determine whether SDD/SOD improves patient outcome in such settings and how these measures affect the epidemiology of multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria. Here we review the current evidence on the effects of SDD/SOD on antibiotic resistance development in individual ICU patients as well as the effect on ICU ecology, the latter including both ICU-level antibiotic resistance and antibiotic resistance development during long-term use of SDD/SOD.

MRSA In Practice

Aimed at junior hospital doctors and general practitioners, the In Practice Series has been devised by RSM Press to present cutting-edge and clear-cut opinion leader advice and summary acts related to every day clinical practice.MRSA is an all too familiar acronym in use in most UK hospitals. MRSA was discovered in the 1960s however has not been a public cause for concern until the current pandemic started in the 1990s. It shows no signs of abating and the UK now has about the highest prevalence in Europe. It has captured the attention of the public and politicians but how important is it in clinical practice? How did it evolve, will it go away or get worse - will it really develop into the untreatable superbug? Is it more virulent than Staphylococcus aureus, what are its common clinical presentation and the best treatments? What are the best ways to control it if indeed we should bother? How much does it cost the NHS? Do we have any new strategies up our sleeves? These are just some of the intriguing questions that a distinguished panel of authors from around the world have tried to answer in this monograph.Some of the topics covered include:Historical perspectives - Ian Phillips (London)Immunology and pathogenesis of MRSA - Von Belkum (Rotterdam) Antibiotic resistance in MRSA - Giles Edwards (Glasgow)Evolution of MRSA - Mark Enright (London University)Epidemiology of MRSA - Vuopia-Varkila (Finland) Control of MRSA - Barry Cookson (London) Georgia Duckworth (London) & Hans Kolmos (Denmark) Treatment of MRSA - Ian Gould (Aberdeen)Decolonisation of MRSA patient - A Seaton (Glasgow)Laboratory aspects- developments in detection and AST - Donald Morrison (Glasgow) Alternative treatments - Tom Riley (Perth, Australia)MRSA in the home and on the farm - Vos + Vos (Nijmegen/Rotterdam)Mopping up MRSA - Stephanie Dancer (Glasgow)Guidance to control MRSA from the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh - D Baird (Glasgow)With its easily accessible approach, broken down into easy-to read chapters, the tips and useful advice of this text makes this a key text for all hospital practitioners. MRSA In Practice is a book that no health care professional can afford to be without.
