In this study, we aim to determine whether acetaminophen is non-inferior to the acetaminophen/oxycodone combination for pain relief after non-operative fixation of an extremity limb fracture. We hypothesize that acetaminophen is non-inferior to the acetaminophen/oxycodone combination.MethodsA double-blind randomized controlled trial will be conducted. Power analysis determined that 1226 participants will be needed (P

This study assessed the effect of residual pain, age, sex, diabetes, hypertension, and depression on changes and status at one-year following arthroplasty with respect to shoulder function and overall physical and mental health status. Methods: A retrospective analysis of a prospective cohort of 140 patients tested preoperatively and one-year following shoulder arthroplasty was conducted at our tertiary hospital. Pearson's correlations and multiple regression analysis were performed to test the impact of predictors on shoulder pain and function assessed using the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgery (ASES) questionnaire...

DiscussionIt is anticipated that results from this preliminary study will begin to highlight effective pathways to improve QoL following chemotherapy for this population. This will better inform healthcare professionals to optimise QoL of lymphoma patients, and enable a smooth transition from being a cancer patient to survivor.Trial registrationThe REIL study has been registered on a publicly accessible database,, Registration Number:NCT02272751, October 2014.

Conclusion: In this multicentric observational study, referral to an FRP was linked to pain, self-reported physical activity and sick leave but not medical characteristics assessed. These findings confirm the bio-psycho-social approach of FRPs for cLBP.

Conclusion. The findings suggest that workload and health-related factors have stronger effects on the development than on the recurrence or progression of LBP, and that health-related factors do not mediate associations between workload factors and incident LBP. Level of Evidence: 3

In this episode, Gabe talks with editor-in-chief Dr. John Grohol about the importance of planning for the end of life.  We all know that everybody dies, but at the same time, no one wants to think about their own inevitable death. Do you know how you would like the end of your life to go?  What if you needed to make that decision for a loved one? Do you know what they want? Would they want to be resuscitated? Do they want to die at home or in a hospital? Do you even know what kinds of decisions need to be made, or what the options are?  Listen in as Dr. John explains that there is a degre...

We report the anesthetic management of 2 patients with Lennox–Gastaut syndrome presenting for respective epilepsy surgery with intraoperative electrocorticography. Electrocorticography is a useful tool to guide the localization of the epileptogenic focus for surgical resection in epilepsy surgery. Drug interactions, proconvulsant or anticonvulsant activity of the anesthetics, and anesthetic influence on intraoperative electrocorticography are the primary concerns to be addressed in these patients. We observed that dexmedetomidine-based anesthesia facilitates intraoperative electrocorticography monitoring. Dexmedetomi...

He had multiple cardiovascular risk factors and the EM physician strongly suspected ACS.Here is his initial ECG:What do you think?Sinus rhythm-STE in V1-V5, possibly a tiny amount in V6, and small amount in I and aVL, and II-Reciprocal STD (although perhaps isoelectric at J point, immediate STD after the J point) with very ischemic appearance in lead III (down-up T-wave is strongtly suggestive)-Large T-waves in V2-V4, which may be either a normal variant or hyperacute-Very tiny Q wave in lead V2, as well as V6, I,...
