in einer randomisierten kontrollierten studie aus pakistan konnte gezeigt werden, das prä- und postoperativ intravenös verabreichtes #Dexamethason zur schmerzlinderung im rahmen einer knie-TEP beitragen kann.
in der doppelt-verblindeten studie wurden zwei gruppen mit je 79 teilnehmenden verglichen.
die erste gruppe erhielt sowohl 15 minuten vor als auch 24 stunden nach der OP jeweils 0,1 mg/kg dexamethason i.v.
die zweite gruppe bekam kein dexamethason und diente als kontrolle.
sowohl im aufwachraum als auch 24 sowie 48 stunden nach dem eingriff gaben die teilnehmenden der dexamethason-gruppe bis zu 1,5 punkte weniger schmerzen auf der visuellen analogskala an. Image

Knowing when to test (vs) when not to test is the hallmark of a seasoned clinician.

But how to you teach this?

Follow this 🧵 to help your trainees navigate uncertainty.

The art & science of #diagnosticreasoning is still in its infancy but we now at least have a shared language to navigate the unknown and have meaningful conversations.

That said, much nuance and variability exist with how clinicians approach and explain the diagnostic process to trainees.

At some point, the conversation usually ends with something like...

“… b/c it won’t change management”

#FOAM #Herzinsuffizienz #BNP
vor allem im anfangsstadium einer herzinsuffizienz treten nicht unbedingt dyspnoe, ödeme oder leistungsschwäche auf. und wenn, dann sind diese symptome oft differentialdiagnostisch nicht immer sicher einzuordnen.
darum wird oft ein laborchemischer parameter zurate gezogen: NT-proBNP
was ist NT-proBNP?
das sog. Brain Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) ist ein polypeptid und wird aus speziellen kardiomyozyten des herzmuskelgewebes synthetisiert und sezerniert.
es ist an der salz-/ wasserhomöostase und damit an der regulation des blutdrucks beteiligt. es wird bei volumenbelastung von den myokardzellen des ventrikels infolge des dehnungsreizes in die blutbahn ausgeschüttet. es liegt zunächst in form von zwei vorläuferpeptiden vor:

heute jährt sich ein nicht-alltäglicher einsatz, der mir leider nicht aus dem kopf geht. er ist ausreichend verändert worden um dem datenschutz und der schweigepflicht rechnung zu tragen. trotzdem sind die inhalte authentisch.

rettungsdienstlich sind noch zwei RTW mitalarmiert. bei unserem eintreffen vor dem haus ist dieses hell erleuchtet und die eingangstüre steht offen. man hört lautes geschrei von drinnen. aufgrund der unklaren lage beschliessen wir zunächst am NEF stehen zu bleiben (4S) Das 4S-Schema (Szene, Sicherheit, Situation, Support) dient

The Pv-aCO2 gap is an easily obtained measure that serves as a marker of impaired cardiac output/tissue perfusion, yet seemingly few of us use it in practice

A short 🧵 on ΔCO2, its potential benefits & some pitfalls

#Hameodynamics #FOAM
The Pv-aCO2 gradient (ΔCO2) is simply the partial pressure of CO2 in venous blood (mixed or central venous) - the partial pressure of CO2 in arterial blood.

Normal values are ≤ 6mmHg (0.8kPa)

Values > 6mmHg suggest a low CO or impaired microvascular tissue perfusion Image
ΔCO2 is primarily determined by total CO2 production (VCO2), cardiac output (CO) and the complex relationship between pCO2 and total blood CO2 content (CCO2).

It can be conceptualised mathematically using the Fick equation Image

A big thanks to Kathryn for using our sofa cushion replacement service 🇬🇧👍 ImageImage
"I bought a brand new sofa and chair from M&S last year. The non-foam back cushions kept collapsing and I constantly had to unzip them to push back into shape. I found GB Foam whilst searching the Internet for a remedy and ordered shaped back cushions made from foam...
The website was really user-friendly and gave helpful advice to ensure I ordered the correct thickness. I also liked that I could choose a specific delivery day without any extra charge. The cushions arrived on time and are a perfect fit."

#Fieber #Intensivmedizin #FOAM
wenn während einer erkrankung die körpertemperatur über 38°C steigt, sprechen wir von fieber. fieber ist an sich keine krankheit, sondern eine reaktion des körpers auf bspw. infektionen, die für die immunabwehr wichtig ist. ob fieber nun eher
ein epiphänomen und damit nur ein zeichen von einer krankheit oder aber ein direktes und lohnendes ziel therapeutischer interventionen darstellt, ist nicht klar. insofern ist es fraglich, ob es vorteilhaft ist, fieber durch antipyretika oder kühlung zu senken.
eine metaanalyse fand nun dafür bei erwachsenen patient:innen keine belege. untersucht wurden 42 studien mit 5140 teilnehmern:innen. in der gesamtschau ließ sich aus den daten kein beleg ableiten, dass eine fiebersenkung das sterberisiko reduziert.
