The Blakemore Tube

Enter the Sengstaken-Blakemore Tube, basically a last ditch effort for balloon tamponade.  This procedure is not a common one given the prevalence and efficacy of endoscopy, but when you're all out of options it's either this or a body bag.

Less is better—sometimes

Global cigarette sales are going down. In most rich countries the proportion of adults who smoke is falling. So why aren’t antitobacco activists celebrating? Our feature this week by Jonathan Gornall (doi:10.1136/bmj.h2052) is the first in a series of articles that describe the efforts of the tobacco industry to regain credibility and influence public policy. Many experts say that the hard won successes of the war against tobacco are in danger of being undone. Population growth will be concentrated in countries with poor tobacco control, and population expansion will exceed any decrease in prevalence. Furthermore, tobacco company profits continue to rise, in part because of expansion into a variety of alternative tobacco and nicotine products, particularly electronic cigarettes (doi:10.1136/bmj.h2133).

Critical Care

Non-manual techniques for terminal disinfection of hospital rooms have gained increasing interest in recent years as means to reduce transmission of multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs). A prospective crossover study by Blazejewski and colleagues in five ICUs of a French academic hospital with a high prevalence of MDRO carriers showed that two different hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-based non-touch disinfection techniques reduced environmental contamination with MDROs after routine cleaning. This study provides further evidence of the ‘in use’ bioburden reduction offered by these techniques. Before H2O2-based non-touch disinfection can be recommended for routine clinical use outside specific outbreak situations, further studies need to show whether the environmental contamination reduction provided by these techniques is clinically relevant and results in reduced cross-infections with MDROs.

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.

Minorities and mental health disorder treatment - DTC of Cal

Approximately 18.6 percent of Americans (43.7 million) live with mental health disorders in the United States and an alarming 60 percent of them do not receive treatment for their condition, especially those from diverse backgrounds. The prevalence of mental health disorders appears to be comparable across most demographics, but sadly the mental health treatment rate among minorities appears to be significantly lower than that of Caucasians.
