CONCLUSIONS: Women in the third trimester of their pregnancy put aside their sexual appetite and that of their partners, and concentrate in the wellbeing of their new born baby. It highlights the role of the mother before the couple. The more desired and difficult the pregnancy has been, the more the sexual life is reduced. The Health Professionals must advise and inform the couples with an open-minded attitude. PMID: 29661671 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Atencion Primaria)

[Point of Care Ultrasound in Primary Care. Is it a high resolution tool?]
Short Apellaniz J Abstract Point-of-Care Ultrasound is a method of performing a rapid clinical ultrasound, with the aim of responding to a clinical question immediately. This is not an ultrasound performed systematically as the radiologists do, nor does it pretend to replace it. It is useful in some kind of screening (abdominal aortic aneurysm) and is of special interest in ultrasound-guided procedures (joint infiltration by injection). It allows to adapt the derivations, minimising the uncertainty, ruling out certain pathologies due to its high diagnostic precision. It can also lead to overdiagnosis, if the exami...

In this study, patients and family members describe the fear and resistance to being present during CPR. Health professionals consider that their decision is complex, and each case must be assessed independently, and patients and relatives must be integrated into decision-making. Future research should explore in greater depth the subjective experience of relatives who have witnessed CPR and the impact of contextual and sociocultural elements from the perspectives of relatives.
