more-power

59 y/o M presents to the cardiac room after cardiac arrest. EMS reports a downtime of 5 minutes with immediate bystander CPR. The initial rhythm was vifb that responded to two EMS shocks and CPR. The patient arrived with ROSC. Soon after the patient goes back into VF. You try everything in the books-continuous compressions, repeated shocks at 360J, all the drugs, but nothing breaks it. Twenty minutes have passed. Is there anything that can be tried or should you call it?

Comparison of two forms of local anaesthesia for cataract surgery | Cochrane

Cataracts are the commonest cause of blindness, worldwide. A cataract is the clouding of the lens that causes loss of transparency of the eye. It is treated by removing the lens and replacing it with an artificial lens. Cataract surgery is usually performed under local anaesthetic, either peribulbar or retrobulbar anaesthesia. There is debate over whether the peribulbar approach provides more effective and safer anaesthesia for cataract surgery than retrobulbar block. Peribulbar anaesthesia is performed by injecting the anaesthetic drug in the orbit around the equator of the eye ball (globe). Retrobulbar anaesthesia is performed by injecting the anaesthetic drug in the orbit further back behind the eye ball, which is near the nerves that control eye movement and sensation.

CHIVA method for the treatment of varicose veins | Cochrane

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a disorder in which veins fail to pump blood back to the heart adequately. It can cause varicose veins, skin ulcers, and superficial or deep vein thrombosis in the legs. The ambulatory conservative hemodynamic correction of venous insufficiency (CHIVA) method is a minimally invasive surgical technique to treat varicose veins. The aim of the CHIVA treatment is to eliminate the venous-venous shunts by disconnecting the escape points, preserving the saphenous vein and normal venous drainage of the superficial tissues of the limb.

Spinal injury in ankylosing spondylitis

A 51 year old man attended the emergency department because of a painful neck after falling from standing height while climbing out of the bath. He slipped backwards in the bath and landed heavily on his back. He didn’t remember hitting his head. He lived alone and was previously independent, although his activities had become increasingly difficult in recent years owing to ankylosing spondylitis. The neck pain worsened during the day and he attended hospital. On initial clinical examination, he was alert and communicative. He had paravertebral soft tissue discomfort at the level of the mid-cervical spine but no midline bony tenderness. His range of neck movement was limited, although this was not unusual for him. No neurological deficits were noted and he was discharged with analgesia.
