Goals-to-Discharge Patient Checklist: Implementing a Program to Optimize Recovery After Surgery for Patients With Colorectal Cancer.

Goals-to-Discharge Patient Checklist: Implementing a Program to Optimize Recovery After Surgery for Patients With Colorectal Cancer. Clin J Oncol Nurs. 2020 Jun 01;24(3):316-319 Authors: Trocchia Mattessich N Abstract Fast-track or enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) pathways are evidence-based perioperative guides that promote stress reduction and earlier return to function following surgery. They emphasize preoperative counseling, nutrition optimization, analgesia standardization, fluid and electrolyte balance, minimally invasive approaches, and early ambulation. Although ERAS pathways were implemented in 2016 on a 43-bed postoperative colorectal medical-surgical unit, inpatient stays remained beyond the projected two-day length of stay (LOS). A quality improvement team was formed and an eight-week pilot project was initiated in 2018. The project included the implementation of a laminated bedside goals-to-discharge checklist in the immediate postoperative period. PMID: 32441689 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

(Natural News) A recent study in the British Journal of Cancer revealed that people with at least 60 minutes of physical activity from adolescence could potentially reduce their risk for colorectal cancer by more than a third. The report, led by researchers from the University of Sao Paolo, is the first to analyze the direct link between physical...

AbstractPurpose of reviewAcute GI bleeding is a prevalent condition responsible for significant morbidity, mortality, and overall health care burden in the United States and globally. Obscure GIB is defined as recurrent or persistent evidence of blood loss after negative endoscopic assessment. The purpose of this review is to further examine colonic sources of obscure GI bleeding with regard to epidemiology, diagnosis, therapy, rebleeding rate, and areas in need of further study.Recent findingsNewer diagnostic modalities like video capsule endoscopy have shown the importance of continued investigation of colonic bleeding a...

. F. Tauriello Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most frequent and deadly forms of cancer. About half of patients are affected by metastasis, with the cancer spreading to e.g., liver, lungs or the peritoneum. The majority of these patients cannot be cured despite steady advances in treatment options. Immunotherapies are currently not widely applicable for this disease, yet show potential in preclinical models and clinical translation. The tumour microenvironment (TME) has emerged as a key factor in CRC metastasis, including by means of immune evasion—forming a major barrier to effective immuno-oncology. S...

In this study, we have performed mass spectrometry imaging and profiling analysis of 63 tissues of five types of cancer including breast, colorectal, esophageal, lung, and gastric cancer usingin situ liquid extraction electrosonic spray ionization mass spectrometry imaging. Alteration of fatty ‐acyl chain length of unsaturated phosphatidylcholines, phosphatidylinositols, and phosphatidylserines and of chain length of (un)saturated fatty acids are associated with different cancerous areas of five types of cancer. The ratios of the same fatty‐acyl carbon atom lipids with one double bond difference and the ratios of the s...

ConclusionPatients with cancer who need treatment can be treated by taking some measures. These measures include observing individual and collective protection principles in patients and health-care personnel, increasing patients ’ awareness particularly about self-care behavior, performing a COVID-19 test, and taking a chest X-ray, before the treatment starts
