Case 8: Cough – medmalreviewer Patient seen for cough. Radiology read mentions incidental finding. No follow-up until several years later, patient's incidental finding now developed into inoperable cancer. Patient sues. Doc has died in the meantime, so they're really just suing his estate. Lawsuit dismissed due to statute of limitations. I'm guessing the doc looked at the xray, searching for pneumonia, did not see any, so discharged... Malpractice Case: Missed x-ray finding

This study sought to evaluate pre-operative risk factors for PPCs in abdominal surgerypatients in Nigeria.Methodology: This was a prospective study in patients booked for surgery in 2014. Biodata, medical his tory, pre-operative respiratory and cardiovascular examination findings, body mass index, serum albumin, serum urea, ventilatory function, chest x-rays and oxygen saturation were obtained. The association between pre-operative variables and PPCs was determined.Results: The pre-operative spirometry was predominantly restrictive (62%). Overall, the prevalence of PPCs was 52%. This included non-productive cough (14%), is...

​Seventy-five percent of trauma injuries involve some kind of thoracic insult, a quarter of which need a procedural intervention like a chest tube. (Surg Clin North Am 2007;87[1]:95; http://bit.ly/2HaoX90.) Long-term illness, lung disease, and post-operative complications may cause pleural effusions or a pneumothorax, so treating these conditions quickly can significantly decrease patient morbidity and mortality. Other indications for chest tube placement include:Trauma: Pneumothorax, hemopneumothorax, or tension pneumothoraxLong-term illness: Pleural effusion (cancer, pneumonia)Infection: Empyema, purulent pleuriti...

Recently we had a patient admitted for a diagnosis that did not really fit his problem representation. The diagnosis was a convenient one, and easily treated. He initially responded to treatment and we discharged him. The diagnosis assumption nagged at me, but I did not push forward with a test that my mind wanted. A week later he returned (the dreaded readmission), with the same symptoms. The admitting resident expanded the treatment for the same diagnosis. The next morning on seeing the patient we were even more uncomfortable than on the first admission. As often happens, this is a story of community acquired p...

Conclusion: The XCP rate and the percentage of specimens positive for Cp increased in early 2014, peaking in May. Only 12% of trainees with laboratory-confirmed Cp were febrile. Historically, acute respiratory disease surveillance at military training centers focused on febrile diseases, particularly those caused by adenoviruses. With introduction of an adenovirus vaccine in late 2011, respiratory disease rates dropped with only sporadic occurrences of adenovirus-associated disease. In 2012, the San Diego surveillance program began providing data on multiple respiratory disease agents, in addition to adenoviruses and influ...

This article will review the spectrum of infectious (VAP &VAT) complications, as well as the main non-infectious complications, namely pulmonary edema, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and atelectasis. Strategies to limit these complications and improve outcomes will be presented. Expert commentary: Improving outcomes should be the objective of implementing bundles of prevention, based on risk factors amenable of intervention. Promotion of measures that reduce the exposition or duration of intubation should be a priority. PMID: 30460868 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
