Authors: Granick MS, Tran BNN, Alvarez OM Abstract The surgical surgical debridement of wounds has evolved over the past 250 years. At that time, the amputation of extremities was recognized as a life-saving procedure to treat major wounds suffered in combat. This continued until after World War I. As the survival of patients with diabetes and other chronic conditions improved, and as advanced therapies were developed to meet the needs of an increasing number of patients with chronic wounds, debridement became a focal point of surgical wound care. It is now well-established that debridement enhances wound-healing a...
Conclusion Overall, inpatient prevalence of HAV in KTx recipients in the United States (years 2005–2014) was 23.42 cases per 100 000 admissions. Hospitalization for HAV after KTx is associated with increased ICU stay, coexisting hepatitis B and C infection, and liver failure.
AbstractPurposeRecently, some attempts have been made to integrate lung ultrasound (LUS) teaching into medical curricula. However, current education studies of LUS are extremely heterogeneous due to the lack of evidence-based guidelines on LUS education. In particular, the assessment of competencies is poorly standardized and mostly relies on non-validated scales. A new validated tool, the objective structured assessment of lung ultrasound skills (LUS-OSAUS), has the potential to overcome these limitations. Therefore, we adopted the LUS-OSAUS tool to assess the competencies of a group of LUS-trained undergraduates. Existin...
