Evaluation of the Explorer Endoscopy Mask© for esogastroduodenoscopy in children: a retrospective study of 173 cases

This study was a retrospective observational study. The study was undertaken at the pediatric digestive endoscopy suite in the Cliniques universitaires Saint‐Luc, Brussels, Belgium. We retrospectively analyzed the occurrence of minor and major airway‐related adverse effects during pediatric EGD procedures performed under GA with the EM between June 2014 and March 2015. ResultsDuring the study period, 173 patients underwent EGD. Their mean age was 8.4 years (median: 9.1 years, range 4 months to 16 years). Mean duration of endoscopy (from insertion to removal of the endoscope) was 12.6 min (median: 12 min, range 3–47 min). The use of EM was uneventful in 159 (92%) cases. There were 24 airway‐related adverse events in 14 children. Hypoxemia (SpO2

Conclusions: Our results confirm health benefits of exclusive breast-feeding and that the introduction of complementary foods before 4 to 6 months poses a greater risk to infant health than does formula. Greater attention to the early introduction of complementary foods is needed in research and clinical practice.

Whether there are specific clinical and pathophysiological features can indicate RB in patients with CVA needs further investigation. Thus, we aimed to investigate the RB in patients with CVA and associated factors.MethodsForty-two CVA patients were randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive oral bambuterol hydrochl...

We report an elderly male who presented with cough and fever and had pulmonary infiltrates suspicious of tuberculosis. Bronchoalveolar lavage microbiology including XpertMTB/Rif assay was non-contributory. Contrast enhanced computed tomography scan of abdomen revealed multiple non-enhancing lesions in the spleen. Ultrasound guided splenic aspirate revealed pus that was positive for Mycobacterium tuberculosis in XpertMTB/Rif assay confirming the diagnosis of tuberculosis. PMID: 32072799 [PubMed - in process]

“I was raised to believe that being frightened meant being alive. Timeo, ergo sum. That being scared is not a frailty but a skill. That I displayed intelligence by shunning whatever displayed itself as welcoming or wild. That the scariest time-bomb in the world was me.” Some of us were raised to seek out scary things. Not in a fun way. Not like skydiving or watching horror films. Some of us were taught to expect and detect threats in every circumstance. Anticipating every buffet, ballgame and block party, every crosswalk, cough and conversation—we were taught to wonder: What could possibly go wr...

This study examined the effects of two skill-based treatments aimed at improving swallowing and cough in a severely dysphagic person with PD: respiratory-swallow coordination training (RSCT) and voluntary cough skill training (VCST). It was hypothesized that (a) RSCT would improve respiratory-swallow coordination and swallowing safety and efficiency and (b) VCST would improve reflex and voluntary cough effectiveness. Method An 81-year-old man with midstage PD and severe dysphagia was recruited for study participation. The study utilized a multiple-baseline ABACA experimental design with a 2-month delayed retention assessme...
