Procedural sedation and analgesia for adults in the emergency department

A 59 year old woman presents to the emergency department with an isolated anterior dislocation of her left shoulder after a fall. Other than controlled asthma, she is healthy. Her last meal was four hours before the injury. After adequate analgesia using intravenous fentanyl, and despite an initial attempt to reduce her dislocation using relaxation techniques, it becomes evident that she needs sedation to complete the procedure successfully.

Collecting data on female genital mutilation

Female genital mutilation is defined by the World Health Organization as “all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genitalia for non-medical reasons.” A horrendous form of child abuse, in its most extreme form (type 3) it involves removing the clitoris and labia and narrowing the vaginal introitus. More than 100 million women worldwide are affected.

Surgeon volume and early complications after primary total hip arthroplasty

Within the past 50 years, total hip arthroplasty has developed from a procedure with a low success rate to one of the main achievements in surgery and has even been designated the operation of the century.1 The tipping point came during the 1960s, when Sir John Charnley designed and developed a unique well functioning prosthesis and used acrylic bone cement to fix the components. Early (already good) results with this prosthesis have been further improved by later devices. Clinical outcomes are now excellent, and over 95% of modern hip prostheses survive for at least 10 years. Complications do occur, however, and include instability, aseptic loosening, periprosthetic fracture, infection, and occasionally death. Although rare, complications do not happen completely at random, and various patient, surgical, and prosthetic factors have been associated with higher risk.

OSCE-Aid : the online revision community for medical students and junior doctors

In your OSCE, you may be asked to explain a procedure and gain consent for it. You may even be provided with a consent form for the patient to sign after your discussion. It is vital to remember that FY1 doctors should not be gaining consent for procedures, and that a doctor should be able to perform a procedure before they can consent a patient for it. Below are some common procedures that are discussed in OSCE stations, along with a structure about how to explain it to a patient: Liver biopsy Endoscopy Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography Colonoscopy Bronchoscopy

Bariatric surgery for obesity and metabolic conditions in adults

This review summarizes recent evidence related to the safety, efficacy, and metabolic outcomes of bariatric surgery to guide clinical decision making. Several short term randomized controlled trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of bariatric procedures for inducing weight loss and initial remission of type 2 diabetes. Observational studies have linked bariatric procedures with long term improvements in body weight, type 2 diabetes, survival, cardiovascular events, incident cancer, and quality of life. Perioperative mortality for the average patient is low but varies greatly across subgroups. The incidence of major complications after surgery also varies widely, and emerging data show that some procedures are associated with a greater risk of substance misuse disorders, suicide, and nutritional deficiencies. More research is needed to enable long term outcomes to be compared across various procedures and subpopulations, and to identify those most likely to benefit from surgical intervention. Given uncertainties about the balance between the risks and benefits of bariatric surgery in the long term, the decision to undergo surgery should be based on a high quality shared decision making process.
