Burnout is defined as emotional exhaustion, feelings of cynicism and detachment, and a sense of ineffectiveness at work. The inverse of burnout is engagement — a persistent, upbeat sense of fulfillment characterized by vigor, dedication, and absorption. I haven’t seen that doctor in the hospital lounge in a long time. I am a neurologist practicing for 25 years in both academic and community hospital settings. I have a busy outpatient practice, take calls at two hospitals and serve a leadership role within our regional health care system. I found I was becoming less enthusiastic about the practice of medicine. I...

The EVAHEART Left Ventricular Assist System (LVAS) was designed for the long-term support of a patient with severe heart failure. It has an original water lubrication system for seal and bearing and wear on these parts was considered one of its critical failure modes. A durability test focusing on wear was designed herein. We developed a mock loop, which generates a physiologic pulsatile flow and is sufficiently durable for a long-term test. The pulsatile load and the low fluid viscosity enable the creation of a severe condition for the mechanical seal. A total of 18 EVAHEART blood pumps completed 2 years of operation unde...

(R&D at British American Tobacco) Clinical studies by scientists at British American Tobacco indicate that when smokers switched completely from conventional cigarettes to glo, their exposure to certain harmful chemicals was significantly reduced. In some cases, the reductions were the same as those in smokers who quit altogether. These data suggest the potential of glo as a reduced-risk product. glo is a tobacco heating product designed to heat rather than burn tobacco. Tests show that glo vapour has around 90-95 percent less toxicants than smoke.

Conclusion The study group who received complete ventilator bundle practices has got higher weaning scores and shorter duration of the connection to mechanical ventilator than the control group. Relevance to clinical practice implementation of complete ventilator bundle elements together among mechanically ventilated patients by the trained nurses could be effective in accelerating the safe weaning of patients and decreasing the duration of the connection to mechanical ventilation.

Authors: Thill MP, Horoi M, Ostermann K, Depuydt C, Deschamps M, Ducène C Abstract Acute external ear lesions: clinical aspects, assessment and management. We reviewed the literature concerning the assessment and the management of the external ear traumas, which is not very rich. Nevertheless, we outlined the practical attitudes in the four major conditions met: the auricular haematoma, the auricular perichondritis, the auricular laceration and auricular bums. All these pathologies must be promptly treated because there is a risk of perichondritis, which can destroy the cartilage and will result in a severel...

Management of the severely burned patient is ery often a challenge, not only due to major disturbances in anatomy and physiological processes, but also because the relatively low incidence of this pathology in both civilian and military practice results in care providers'lack of experience. The purpose o...

Abstract Editor's note: On July 26, 2017, Alex Wubbels, the charge nurse on the burn unit at the University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City, was arrested for refusing to allow a police officer to draw blood from an unconscious patient in her care. Her arrest, during which she was forcefully placed in handcuffs and dragged out of the hospital, was documented on body camera video and drew national attention. We asked our ethical and legal contributing editors to provide some insight on the issues of this case. PMID: 29470217 [PubMed - in process]
