Dawn of a New Era for JEMS: It's About 'Time'

Today, our industry is heavily data and technology driven, with CAD systems and EPCRs almost universally used. Emergency care practices are more dynamic than ever, with critical advances in patient care occurring more frequently than a monthly print publication can possibly allow. Because technology and the Web have advanced to a point that it is both instantaneous and reliable, we feel that we can better serve the EMS community by focusing our efforts on delivering JEMS content via our website www.JEMS.com and other digital platforms to allow for a more timely – and frequent – publication. So we’ve decided to advance with the times and discontinue printing JEMS in its traditional monthly magazine format, effective with our June 2018 issue, and use our web platform and mobile technology to get information to you sooner with our new digital approach. When I started at JEMS 23 years ago (in 1995), the Internet was in its infancy, having been introduced in 1991. It was a new phenomenon. It was clunky in its infancy and many thought it was just for national security purposes. Boy were they wrong. Back in 1995, JEMS received almost all of its articles and queries via the mail. We used to have to laboriously transfer written articles and documents to text to place in the magazine. Even though we had a Web page in the mid-1990s, it was not easy to upload documents and videos. JEMS and all of our newsletters were only available in print and it took weeks for interna...

Publication date: Available online 12 December 2018Source: The Veterinary JournalAuthor(s): A. Ehrle, L. Ressel, E. Ricci, R. Merle, E.R. SingerAbstractThe equine interspinous ligament (ISL) consists of an oblique crossing arrangement of collagenous bundles which are thought to counteract the tensile and rotational forces of distraction between the spinous processes (SPs) in the caudal thoracic and cranial lumbar spine. The aim of this controlled histological study was to assess the structural anatomy and innervation of the ISL in horses with clinically significant overriding (dorsal) SPs (ORSPs) and to compare the finding...

CONCLUSION:: These results provide information to support choices in exercise progression from flat stable to more unstable surfaces, and from those with bilateral foot support to unilateral foot support. The Oov was more comfortable that the foam roller, and this may help with exercise adherence. PMID: 30526226 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Monks, Jose C.A.Carvalho, Fulvio Zullo, Vincenzo BerghellaAbstractCesarean delivery occurs in roughly one third of pregnancies. Effective postoperative pain control is a goal for patients and physicians. Limiting opioid use in this period is important as some percentage of opioid naïve individuals will develop persistent use. Gabapentin is a non-opioid medication that has been used perioperatively to improve postoperative p...

ABSTRACT Neuropathic pain is a chronic pain condition caused by damage or dysfunction of the central or peripheral nervous system. Electroacupuncture (EA) has an antinociceptive effect on neuropathic pain, which is partially due to inhibiting astrocyte activation in the spinal cord. We found that an intrathecal injection of 8-cyclopentyl-1,3-dipropylxanthine (DPCPX), a selective adenosine A1 receptor antagonist, reversed the antinociceptive effects of EA in a chronic constriction injury-induced neuropathic pain model. The expression of GFAP in L4-L6 spinal cord was significantly upgraded, while DPCPX suppressed the effect ...

CONCLUSION: This is the first study evaluating the relationship between serum ET-1 levels and cartilage morphology and clinical parameters, which did not show any conclusive result. Future studies, overcoming the limitations of this study, might provide a better understanding of the role of ET-1 in the pathogenesis of OA. PMID: 30530965 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The present study demonstrated that nurses working in Jeddah exhibit a high prevalence of lower back pain. In order to reduce the risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders among nurses, the physical therapist's role is vital and nurses' practice of relaxation and stretching exercises in between work schedules is mandatory.

CONCLUSIONS: According to RULA scores, training on ergonomics was effective in reducing the risk level of musculoskeletal disorders. MCFRF scores showed that ergonomics training had no effect on posture during computer usage. Nevertheless, MCFRF evaluates only posture and does not calculate approximate forces that body parts were exposed to. Thus, these areas of MCFRF required improvement. Our study emphasized the importance of the long-term effects of ergonomics training for preventive purposes before musculoskeletal problems manifest.
