Paediatric glaucoma in Hong Kong: a multicentre retrospective analysis of epidemiology, presentation, clinical interventions, and outcomes
CONCLUSION: Primary congenital glaucoma was most prevalent, followed by juvenile open-angle glaucoma and aphakic glaucoma. Most eyes with primary glaucoma required surgical treatment. Parental concerns were important clinical presentations. Basic assessments by healthcare providers to identify glaucoma signs (eg, poor visual acuity, high intraocular pressure, and strabismus) warranted prompt referral to an ophthalmologist.PMID:33542158 | DOI:10.12809/hkmj208833 (Source: Hong Kong Med J)

Admission triage tool for adult intensive care unit admission in Hong Kong during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Abstract Intensive care is expensive, and the numbers of intensive care unit (ICU) beds and trained specialist medical staff able to provide services in Hong Kong are limited. The most recent increase in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infections over July to August 2020 resulted in more than 100 new cases per day for a prolonged period. The increased numbers of critically ill patients requiring ICU admission posed a capacity challenge to ICUs across the territory, and it may be reasonably anticipated that should a substantially larger outbreak occur, ICU services will be overwhelmed. Therefore, a transparent ...

Cross-border reproductive care use by women with infertility in Hong Kong: cross-sectional survey.
CONCLUSION: Nearly one in six women with infertility in Hong Kong had used CBRC. Among women who had not used CBRC, more than one third planned to use or would consider it. The main factors influencing the likelihood of CBRC use were long waiting times in the public sector and high cost in the private sector. These results will help clinicians to more effectively counsel patients considering CBRC and facilitate infertility services planning by authorities in Hong Kong.

Medication-related problems in older people: how to optimise medication management.
Abstract Older patients are at risk of medication-related problems because of age-related physiological changes and multiple medications taken for multiple co-morbidities. The resultant polypharmacy is frequently associated with inappropriate medication use, which in turn contributes to a range of adverse consequences, including geriatric syndromes (eg, falls, cognitive decline, urinary incontinence) and hospitalisation. In addition, medication non-adherence or discrepancies between the medications prescribed and those actually taken by patients, either intentional or unintentional, are prevalent and can lead to t...

Pre-hospital stroke screening and notification of patients with reperfusion-eligible acute ischaemic stroke using modified Face Arm Speech Time test.
Abstract INTRODUCTION: To investigate the effects of pre-hospital stroke screening and notification on reperfusion therapy for patients with acute ischaemic stroke. METHODS: Pre-hospital stroke screening criteria were established based on a modified version of the Face Arm Speech Time (FAST) test. Screening was performed during ambulance transport by emergency medical service (EMS) personnel who completed a 2-hour training session on stroke screening. Temporal trends affecting acute ischaemic stroke investigation and intervention were compared before and after implementation of the pre-hospital screening. ...
