Characteristics and Treatment Outcomes of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo in a Cohort of Veterans.

Conclusions: The characteristics and treatment outcomes of BPPV in our veteran cohort was similar to what has been reported in the general population. Future work should focus on improving the timeliness of evaluation and treatment of BPPV and examining the time course and management of residual dizziness.

AbstractObjectiveTo compare the Galletti –Contrino manoeuvre with the more widely used Semont–Toupet in overweight subjects presenting with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPBV) of vertical semicircular canals (posterior and anterior canals).Study designProspective cohort study.Patients204 patients (BMI range 25 –30) with a diagnosis of BPPV of vertical semicircular canals were randomly divided in two groups treated with two different maneuvers: Galletti–Contrino (Group A) and Semont–Toupet manoeuvre (Group B). The results were compared with those obtained from a control group (204 non-o...

Gender Affects the Median Effective Dose and 95% Effective Dose of Oxycodone for Blunting the Hemodynamic Response to Tracheal Intubation in Narcotic-Naïve Adult Patients. Chin Med J (Engl). 2018 Aug 20;131(16):1958-1963 Authors: Kang XH, Bao FP, Zhang HG, Yu DJ, Ha K, Xie Q, Zhu SM Abstract Background: Intravenous (IV) oxycodone has been used at induction to prevent an intubation reaction. The aims of the current study were to calculate the median effective dose (ED50) and the 95% effective dose (ED95) of an IV bolus of oxycodone that blunts the hemodynamic response to tracheal intubation with p...

CONCLUSIONS: S-SNHL can be an early manifestation of MS and should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of this condition, especially in women. The pathophysiology can be explained by the involvement of microglia attacking the central and/or peripheral auditory pathways as indicated by WMHs. PMID: 30058696 [PubMed - in process]
