A pregnant woman with anaemia and thrombocytopenia

A 28 year old woman who was 31 weeks pregnant attended the emergency department of our hospital with acute onset of abdominal pain in her right upper quadrant. She had undergone regular antenatal check-ups in the midwifery clinic, with no problems reported. She had no medical history of note and was not taking any drugs. She was a non-smoker and before she was pregnant she rarely drank alcohol. Her cardiovascular, respiratory, and neurological examinations were unremarkable and she had no peripheral oedema. The fetal heart sounds were normal. Her blood pressure was high (136/104 mm Hg) and her pulse was 88 beats/min. The urine protein to creatinine ratio showed no evidence of proteinuria.

Rescue high-frequency jet ventilation versus conventional ventilation for severe pulmonary dysfunction in preterm infants | Cochrane

Background: In very low birth weight infants who require support on breathing machines (ventilators), ventilator-associated lung injury and toxic effects of oxygen may be important factors in creating a chronic disturbance in lung function. Compared with routine conventional ventilators, high-frequency jet ventilators (breathing machines that introduce short-duration pulses of gas under pressure into the airway at a very fast rate) may reduce the severity of lung injury associated with mechanical ventilation.

Pulse oximeters used to self monitor oxygen saturation levels as part of a personalised asthma action plan for people with asthma | Cochrane

We became aware through talking with people with asthma that some are using pulse oximeters to monitor their own blood oxygen levels during an asthma attack. Pulse oximeters are marketed by some suppliers as essential equipment for the home medicine cabinet. We wanted to find out if reliable evidence is available on use of pulse oximeters to self monitor asthma exacerbations at home. We decided to include only trials that used pulse oximeters as part of a personalised asthma action plan because it is important that decisions are made on the basis of symptoms as well as oxygen saturation, and that patients have a clear protocol to follow when their asthma worsens.

Interventions for renal vasculitis in adults | Cochrane

Renal vasculitis presents as rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis which is a form of kidney disease that causes damage to the small structures (glomeruli) inside the kidneys that help filter waste and fluids from blood to form urine. The disease leads to a rapid loss of kidney function. Standard suppression of the immune system with steroids and cyclophosphamide is recommended. The aim of this review was to evaluate the benefits and harms of any intervention for the treatment of renal vasculitis. Thirty one studies (2217 patients) were identified. Plasma exchange reduces the risk of end-stage kidney disease in patients presenting with severe acute kidney failure. The use of pulse cyclophosphamide results in good remission rates but there was an increased risk of relapse. Azathioprine is effective as maintenance therapy once remission has been achieved. Mycophenolate mofetil is equivalent for remission induction than cyclophosphamide. Mycophenolate mofetil has also been tested in maintenance treatment and was found to result in a higher rate of disease relapse. Initial data on rituximab showed equivalent effectiveness to cyclophosphamide. Methotrexate and leflunomide are useful in maintenance therapy but their relative effectiveness are not clearly defined. Treatment with co-trimoxazole may prevent respiratory infections and relapses but are unlikely to have a major impact on systemic relapses of vasculitis.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for the treatment of schizophrenia | Cochrane

Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a relatively new and sophisticated device-based therapy. TMS involves the skilful application of a strong magnetic field close to the surface of the scalp. The TMS device delivers strong and very brief magnetic pulses that stimulate the brain and its network of neurons. TMS is a relatively painless and non-invasive technique that stimulates parts of the brain (the cerebral cortex). Brain activity has been shown to differ in people with schizophrenia compared to other people.
