Current Practice and Barriers to an Early Antimicrobial Conversion from Intravenous to Oral among Hospitalized Patients at Jimma University Specialized Hospital: Prospective Observational Study. Interdiscip Perspect Infect Dis. 2019;2019:7847354 Authors: Beyene Berha A, Kassie GM Abstract Objective: The aim of the present study was to explore the current practice and its barriers to an early antimicrobial conversion from intravenous (IV) to oral (PO) therapy among hospitalized patients. Method: Hospital based prospective observational study was conducted to assess the practice of an early antimicrobial IV to PO conversion and its barriers using medical chart and case-specific physicians' interviews, respectively, from February to September, 2014. Patient charts and medication records were reviewed for appropriateness of IV to PO conversion program every 24hrs using a pretested data collection abstraction format. Independent samples t-test was used to compare the duration of therapy and time to clinical stability between converted and nonconverted patients. Two-tailed P values of

CONCLUSIONS: The oral iron absorption test, although not clearly standardized, is easy to conduct in any outpatient clinic. This test can readily and clearly determine absorption or nonabsorption of iron. This test can have major implications on the need of oral or intravenous iron therapy and can also determine the need for further gastrointestinal evaluation of the small intestine, where iron absorption takes place and the success of therapy on subsequent iron absorption.PMID:34672450

Acta Biomed. 2021 Sep 2;92(4):e2021190. doi: 10.23750/abm.v92i4.11194.ABSTRACT Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a pathological persistence of spontaneous or evoked disproportionate pain. Several drugs are employed, but only bisphosphonates seem to have good outcomes. The purpose of our research is to analyze the characteristics of the cases victims of CRPS and study the beneficial effect of the intravenous nerindronic acid sodium salt (Nerixia®), in an attempt to improve the results in this disabling disease. Materials and methods: We retrospectively examined 30 cases of CRPS that had undergone intravenous neri...
