Developing an Innovative Tablet-Based Walking Program to Improve Arthritis Fatigue. J Gerontol Nurs. 2020 Oct 01;46(10):13-18 Authors: Cody J, Choi J, Martell CR Abstract Fatigue associated with arthritis is highly prevalent and interferes with patients' daily routines. An interdisciplinary research team developed the Tablet-based Cognitive Behavioral Intervention (Tab-CBI) for older adults with arthritis fatigue. The goal of the Tab-CBI is to alleviate fatigue by promoting a simple walking activity. The Tab-CBI application used off-the-shelf technologies and was implemented on a mini-tablet computer. The four key components of Tab-CBI are: (a) multimedia cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)-based educational modules; (b) videoconferencing communication; (c) individualized goal setting; and (d) electronic data submission. Experts perceived that the Tab-CBI was engaging and user friendly, and effective in improving simple walking routines and alleviating fatigue. Experts' feedback was incorporated into refining the Tab-CBI. The current study demonstrated that the Tab-CBI has potential to be a useful innovation for fatigue management in older adults.

CONCLUSION: According to our subclinical electrophysiological findings, surgeons that use the posterolateral approach in THA procedures must be conscious of the sciatic nerve's vulnerability to reduce possible clinical complications. PMID: 33031693 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Although treatment algorithms are an attractive tool to guide clinicians and resource allocation, they need to take into account the local population characteristics before routine implementation. Level of Evidence: Level IV–retrospective cohort study.
AbstractRheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a progressive autoimmune inflammatory disease affecting 1% of the population with three times as many women as men. As many as 86% of patients suffering from RA have cervical spine involvement. Synovial inflammation in the cervical spine causes instability and injuries including atlantoaxial subluxation, retroodontoid pannus formation, cranial settling, and subaxial subluxation. While many patients with cervical spine involvement are asymptomatic, symptomatic patients often present with nonspecific symptoms resulting from inflammation and additional secondary symptoms that are due to co...
