Feeding tube practices and the colonisation of the preterm stomach in the first week of life
CONCLUSION: Changing the feeding tube daily rather than weekly in the first week of life did not result in reduced bacterial concentration in gastric aspirates. The bacterial load from the feeding tubes was low suggesting that contamination of feeding tubes did not affect early colonisation of the upper gastrointestinal tract.FUNDING: none.TRIAL REGISTRATION: ClinicalTrials identification number NCT02830503.PMID:35959833 (Source: Danish Medical Journal)

Spinal versus conventional fine needle for ultrasound-guided thyroid nodule biopsy: a protocol for a randomised clinical trial
CONCLUSIONS: This trial will explore whether FNAB from thyroid nodules employing spinal needles compared with conventional fine needles improves diagnostic results, thereby providing evidence-based recommendations for a future choice of the FNAB needle. Secondary outcomes are patient-experienced pain, complication rate and sensitivity and specificity.FUNDING: This trial received funding from Erik and Susanna Olesens Fond. The funding source had no influence on trial design, data collection, analysis or publication.CLINICALTRIALS: gov Identifier: NCT04879355.

Comparison of two frailty screening tools for acutely admitted elderly patients
CONCLUSION: A significant association existed between frailty and 90-day mortality in the Danish cohort. However, the CFS is a better predictor of 90-day mortality the FP. Even so, the CFS still has a lack of sensitivity and specificity.FUNDING: none TRIAL REGISTRATION. not relevant.PMID:35959830 (Source: Danish Medical Journal)

The first COVID-19 lockdown's impact on hand injuries at a Danish accident and emergency department
CONCLUSION: We observed a greater reduction in non-severe injuries than in severe injuries compared with 2019. Further studies are needed to fully examine the cause of this phenomenon. The reduction may be caused, in part, by a more restrictive attitude towards seeking medical help at a trauma A and E during the first COVID-19 lockdown.FUNDING: none TRIAL REGISTRATION. not relevant.PMID:35959831 (Source: Danish Medical Journal)

Post-operative opioid dosing relative to preoperative long-acting opioid dose
CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that patients with a high intake of long-acting opioids may be more likely to receive PRN opioid doses that are not sufficiently adjusted to their total intake during the first 24 hours after inpatient surgery than patients with a lower intake of long-acting opiods.FUNDING: none.TRIAL REGISTRATION: The study was approved by the AUH Ethical Committee and by the Danish Data Protection Agency (ID 1-16-02-341-21).PMID:35959832 (Source: Danish Medical Journal)
