A case of tracheal obstruction caused by reflux and aspiration of semi-solid nutrients via the nasogastric tube

ConclusionsAlthough semi-solid nutrients have several advantages, including reduced diarrhea and gastroesophageal reflux, evidence on semi-solid nutrients via the nasogastric tube is insufficient. It should be noted that semi-solid nutrient reflux can be more fatal than liquid nutrients.

Pesch B Abstract Welders have an increased susceptibility to airway infections with non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi), which implicates immune defects and might promote pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We hypothesized that welding-fume exposure suppresses Th1-lymphocyte activity. Non-effector CD4+ T-cells from blood of 45 welders (n = 23 gas metal arc welders, GMAW; n = 16 tungsten inert gas welders, TIG; n = 6 others) and 25 non-welders were ex vivo activated towards Th1 via polyclonal T-cell receptor stimulation and IL-12 (first activation step) a...

Abstract The aggregation state of mineral slurry by coagulant with the presence of clay nanosheets appears similar to a flocculation gel with the absence of flocculant. The interactions between particles in mixed clay and quartz minerals systems are influenced by the interactions of ion correlation and slime coating, which creates zeta potential variation. Particle concentration has a substantial effect on zeta potential, and coal slurry has a relative high particle concentration. To realize an in situ aggregation study, zeta potential measurement of coal slurry was performed using electrokinetic sonic amplitude (...

Hypercalcemia of malignancy occurs in up to one third of patients at some point during the course of their advanced stage. The majority of them is caused by humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy due to systemic secretion of parathyroid hormone –related protein (PTHrP) by tumor cells. Extramammary Paget’s disease is a slow-growing cutaneous malignancy commonly limited to the epidermis of the anogenital region, but rarely becomes invasive and metastatic to distant sites. Herein, we report a 70-year-old male patient with metastatic extra mammary Paget’s disease. He consulted our hospital with altered conscious...

AbstractIdiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a peripheral subpleural interstitial lung disorder limited to the lung not involving the airways. It has a poor prognosis (survival less than 5  years) and commonly an interstitial pneumonia radiological pattern. Patients complain of a chronic dry cough in 80% of cases. A cough is often the first symptom of this rare disease, preceding dyspnea by years, and is associated with a poor prognosis, high dyspnea scores and low FVC percentages. T he pathogenetic mechanisms leading to coughing in IPF are unclear. This review focuses on recent evidence of cough pathophysiology in this d...

Authors: De Leon A Abstract At present, elderly individuals represent approximately 18,5% of the European population and account for about 23% of surgical procedures performed. This patient population is at a higher riskì for perioperative complications and adverse postoperative outcome. This narrative review highlights our current knowledge about physiological changes in the aging gut and the implications for anaesthesiologists. The reduced response to stimuli in the pharynx, and reduction of the cough reflex that occurs in many older individuals, probably explains the increased incidence of aspiration pneu...

Introduction The muscular dystrophies (MD) are a group of genetically heterogeneous muscle diseases marked by progressive wasting and weakness of the skeletal and cardiac muscles1. Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common and most severe form. It is an X-linked disorder affecting 1 in 5000 live male births2,3. DMD is caused by mutations in the DMD gene, which encodes the muscle fiber membrane protein dystrophin. Deficiency or complete absence of dystrophin makes muscle fibers sensitive to damage upon contraction, leading to plasma membrane leakage and muscle fiber degeneration, which eventually leads to progres...
