Should we advise patients with sutures not to swim?

Patients often ask when they can swim after a wound has been sutured. Despite such an apparently simple query, evidence supporting any answer seems to be lacking. Many patient information sites advise against swimming after the suturing of wounds1 but fail to provide evidence to support this recommendation. Advice is broad ranging and inconsistent.1 Current information ranges from waiting until the sutures are removed and the wound has healed1 to abstaining from swimming for six weeks postoperatively.2 Patients with external frame fixators are advised that it is permissible to swim in a chlorinated pool or clean sea water, although in practice this is difficult to ascertain and is far from an objective measure, once the pin sites have healed.3 Evidence to back up the advice is scarce.

Whom should we “test and treat” for Helicobacter pylori?

The possibility that peptic ulcer and gastric cancer could be an infectious disease would have been dismissed as ridiculous 30 years ago. We now realise that Helicobacter pylori infection is the major cause of both. As H pylori infection has been implicated in various upper gastrointestinal diseases, testing for the bacterium non-invasively and treating infected individuals (“test and treat”) has become widespread. The key question is in which group of patients is this approach appropriate?

A reform too late and a “redisorganisation” too far

The World Health Organization is at the forefront of our efforts to defeat Ebola virus disease. Preventing and treating communicable diseases were the making of WHO as an international organisation capable of delivering successful health campaigns. Historically, Africa has preoccupied WHO more than any other continent. Recent pandemic threats, from avian flu to Middle East respiratory syndrome, readied WHO for the current crisis that now threatens 15 countries (doi:10.1136/bmj.g6305).
