What Is the Scope of Practice for Pediatric Care for Chiropractic Doctors?
Discussion “Chiropractic is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health.” Some people look at chiropractic care solely as spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) or manipulation. Chiropractic physicians also offer a variety of other treatments including nutritional advice, dietary or herbal supplements, therapeutic exercise, posture correction and behavioral counseling. Spinal muscle therapy or spinal manipulation is one of the most common complementary, integrative, and alternative medicine practices used by children in the U.S.. Usually care is sought for musculoskeletal complaints but also infant crying/colic, anxiety/stress, sleep problems, asthma, attention problems and upper respiratory infections including otitis media. Another important reason is overall health promotion. A literature review regarding different forces used for SMT in children found that there was a range of forces used depending on the study and SMT technique used. This paper cites standards for force relative to adults: Neonates to 2 month olds =
Conclusion: Current evidence precludes drawing a firm conclusion on the efficacy or superiority of LidoIV over traditional therapies for ED patients with renal colic. Evidence suggests LidoIV may be an effective non-opiate analgesic alliterative; however, it's efficacy may not exceed that of NSAIDs or opiates. Further study is needed to validate the potential improved efficacy of LidoIV plus metoclopramide. PMID: 32259122 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Abstract Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening systemic allergic hypersensitivity reaction that may potentially be triggered after the administration of any drug. Our case was a 51-year-old man with the history of mild pain in his flanks since the night before he was admitted to our hospital. The patient was diagnosed with urolithiasis and admitted to the emergency department. He developed anaphylaxis after intravenous injection of 30 mg ketorolac. Allergic reactions to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ketorolac are rare; nonetheless, they can be life-threatening and should be carefully monitored...
Conclusion: It seems that naloxone is not a completely safe medication even in opioid-naïve patients, and administrating adjusted doses of naloxone even in opioid-naïve methadone intoxicated patients may be logical. PMID: 32259115 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
