Association of obstructive sleep apnea risk factors with nocturnal enuresis in postmenopausal women
Conclusions: OSA risk factors are associated with nocturnal enuresis in postmenopausal women. Mechanisms relating nocturnal enuresis to OSA may include apnea-associated changes in intrathoracic pressure, leading to increased urine output. Questioning at-risk postmenopausal women presenting with nocturnal enuresis about other OSA risk factors should be considered.
RESUMO Objetivo: Avaliar as respostas fisiol ógicas e do sistema nervoso autônomo de recém-nascidos prematuros ao posicionamento do corpo e ruídos ambientais na unidade de terapia intensiva neonatal. Métodos: Este foi um estudo quasi-experimental. O sistema nervoso autônomo de recém-nascidos foi avaliado com base na variabilidade da fr equência cardíaca quando os recém-nascidos foram expostos ao ruído ambiental e colocados em diferentes posições: supina sem suporte, supina com restrição manual e prona. Resultados: Cinquent...
Conclusion: Septic patients with a past history of heart failure received 1L less IV fluids in the first 24 hours with no difference in mortality.
The objective of this literature review is to present the theoretical and practical aspects of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support for respiratory and/or cardiac functions in critically ill patients.
Robotic assistance may facilitate completion of minimally invasive hysterectomy, which is the standard of care for the treatment of early-stage endometrial cancer, in patients for whom conventional laparoscopy is challenging. The aim of this systematic review was to assess conversion to laparotomy and perioperative complications after laparoscopic (LH) and robotic hysterectomy (RH) in endometrial cancer patients with obesity.
There are three general techniques for laparoscopic entry, all of which are considered safe and effective. These include the use of a veress needle, an optical trocar, and an open approach. Twenty-five percent of all injuries during laparoscopic surgery occur with initial entry. Therefore, a thoughtful approach to port placement is critical to ensure optimal performance and patient safety with entry. Certain patient factors that may increase the rate of injury or complicate entry include obesity, prior abdominal surgeries, large uterine size, and the small stature and short torso of the pediatric patient.
Fibroids are common, benign masses which can result in significant morbidity for affected women due to heavy menstrual bleeding and anemia, bulk symptoms and infertility. In women who are pre-menopausal or wishing to retain future fertility, the surgical management of symptomatic fibroids is by way of myomectomy. The surgical removal of fibroids can be associated with significant intraoperative blood loss and subsequent blood transfusion, which is an important morbidity associated with this elective procedure in reproductive-aged women.
To examine differences in life satisfaction, sleep, and fatigue after hysterectomy among women with preoperative pelvic pain and/or depression.
This study is aimed to evaluate the efficacy of fractional CO2 laser therapy (Laser therapy) in the treatment of GSM.
Assess hormone replacement therapy (HRT) use in patients undergoing premature surgical menopause, and correlate that with surgical indication for menopause.
To assess the effect of resident participation on hysterectomy-related complications in morbidly obese patients.
