Shortening Door-to-Balloon Time: The Use of Ambulance versus Private Vehicle for Patients with ST-Segment Elevation Acute Myocardial Infarction
CONCLUSION: There was no statistical significance when comparing the D2B time between the private car group and the ambulance group (P = 0.1870). Finally, ambulance transport significantly shortened the time to first ED physician contact. However, it was not associated with shortened D2B time when compared to private vehicle transport.PMID:38145227 | PMC:PMC10740716 | DOI:10.2147/OAEM.S435446 (Source: Pain Physician)

Responsiveness and meaningful thresholds of PROMIS pain interference, fatigue, and physical function forms in adults with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies: Report from the OMERACT Myositis Working Group
CONCLUSION: This study provides evidence towards the responsiveness of the PROMIS instruments in a large international prospective cohort of adults with IIM supporting their use as PROMs in adult myositis.PMID:38141522 | DOI:10.1016/j.semarthrit.2023.152339 (Source: Pain Physician)

Human dissection for anesthesiology resident training augments anatomical knowledge and clinical skills
In this report, the need for a more extensive review of relevant anatomy for the practice of anesthesiology was addressed by the design, evaluation, and dissemination of a human dissection course for procedural training of anesthesiology residents. The course utilized "freedom art" embalmed human bodies that allowed trainees to perform ultrasound-based regional and neuraxial techniques followed by detailed dissections of critical anatomy. One hundred and four residents participated in workshops and small group discussions and were evaluated using pre- and post-course assessments. A variety of clinical techniques were perfo...

Successful treatment of fulminant myocarditis due to COVID-19 in a 5-year-old girl
We report a case of a 5-year-old girl with fulminant myocarditis caused by COVID-19, who was successfully treated with veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO). The unvaccinated patient had developed fever 1 week before attending our hospital and was "presumptive positive" for COVID-19 based on the surrounding infectious situation. The fever resolved, but the day before the visit, abdominal pain appeared. The patient visited her previous physician with vomiting as the main complaint. She was transferred to our hospital due to impaired consciousness and bradycardia, with a heart rate of 40 beats/min. Imme...

Using PROMIS-29 to determine symptom burdens in the context of the Type 1 and 2 systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) model: a cross sectional study
CONCLUSION: PROMIS-29 similarities in patients with high Type 2 SLE, with and without active Type 1 SLE, demonstrate the challenges of using PROs to assess SLE inflammation. In conjunction with the Type 1 and 2 SLE model, however, PROMIS-29 identified distinct symptom patterns, suggesting that the model may help clinicians interpret PROs.PMID:38127169 | PMC:PMC10739689 | DOI:10.1186/s41687-023-00678-5 (Source: Pain Physician)

Dishonest Physician Reviews: Challenging Physician Online Reviews and the Appeals Process
The objective of this observational study was to determine the ability to challenge dishonest negative reviews online. Commonly used websites for physician reviews as of August 2021 were utilized: Healthgrades, Vitals, RateMDs, Zocdoc, Yelp, and Google Business. Each review platform's website was tested for leaving a physician review and process of appeal and possible removal of a negative review. The process for appeal and the steps involved in posting and appealing a review were determined, whether individuals are verified patients and criteria for verification, how physicians can respond, and the process of appealing fa...
