RESUMEN

Objetivo. Evaluar los resultados de la formación mixta frente a la presencial en un curso de soporte vital básico/desfibrilador externo automático (SVB/DEA), así como su retención a los 9 meses. Método. Estudio experimental aleatorizado que compara los resultados de la formación en SVB/DEA entre un grupo control (GC) que recibió formación presencial de 4 horas frente a un grupo experimental (GE) que recibió formación en metodología mixta: 2 horas virtuales y 2 horas presenciales. Resultados. Participaron 89 alumnos (45 del GC y 44 del GE). Después de la formación, el GC obtuvo mejores puntuaciones en conocimientos [8,6 (DE 0,9) frente a 8,0 (DE 1,14), p = 0,013]. El GE obtuvo mejores puntuaciones en las habilidades del tiempo en segundos de "hands off" y en el porcentaje de la rexpansión completa del tórax. Los conocimientos decaen a los 9 meses, pero sin diferencias entre los dos grupos. La retención global baja de 8,31 (DE 1,1) a 6,04 (DE 1,6) (p = 0,001), en 9 meses, pero de forma similar en ambos grupos. En las habilidades prácticas no hubo diferencias entre los dos grupos ni al finalizar el curso ni a los 9 meses. Conclusiones. Con la metodología virtual se obtienen mejores resultados en algunos parámetros de las habilidades


Objective. To evaluate the immediate and 9-month results of blended versus standard training in basic life support and the use of an automatic external defibrillator (BLS/AED). Methods. Randomized trial comparing the results of standard BLS/AED training to blended training. The control group received 4 hours of standard instruction from a trainer and the experimental blended-training group received 2 hours of virtual training and 2 hours of in-person instruction. Results. Eighty-nine students participated, 45 in the control group and 44 in the experimental group. The controls achieved better mean (SD) knowledge scores immediately after training (8.6 [0.9] vs 8.0 [1.14] in the experimental group, P=.013). The blended training group scored better on certain skill markers (hands-off time in seconds and compressions followed by complete chest recoil). Participant knowledge had decreased at 9 months without significant between-group differences. Overall, retention fell from a score of 8.31 (1.1) to 6.04 (1.6) (P=.001) in 9 months and the loss was similar in the 2 groups. No differences in practical skills between the groups were observed at the end of the course or 9 months later. Conclusions. The blended training method led to better results on some skill ítems

RESUMEN

INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to assess the reproducibility of cervical vertebral maturation (CVM) method based on the type of radiographic image and the level of experience and level of training of the evaluator. METHODS: Ten evaluators (5 orthodontic residents and 5 faculty members) were randomly divided into 2 groups: trained and untrained. All participants evaluated 80 radiographic images previously acquired in 4 different formats: (1) 2-dimensional (2D) digital (2D-digital), (2) 2D digitized hard copy from the Iowa Facial Growth Study (American Association of Orthodontists Foundation Craniofacial Growth Legacy Collection), (3) 2D digital reconstructed from a 3-dimensional (3D) radiograph (2D-from 3D), and (4) 3D cone-beam computerized tomographic (3D-CBCT) images. Agreement among evaluators on the morphology of the cervical vertebrae (CV) and the CVM stage of each radiographic image was assessed using Randolph's kappa statistic and Kendall's W coefficient of concordance. RESULTS: Interobserver agreement on the determination of a curvature on the inferior border of the CV was substantial to perfect, whereas agreement on shape was fair to moderate. Overall, the level training in all image types, except 3D-CBCTs, but not the level of experience affected the agreement for shape and curvature of the CVs. Interobserver agreement on CVM staging for all combined images was substantial at 0.72. Faculty had a higher level of agreement than residents except for 2D-digital and 3D-CBCT images, whereas trained evaluators had an overall higher level of agreement than untrained evaluators except for 3D-CBCT images. CONCLUSIONS: Interobserver agreement in determining CVM stage was substantial for all images evaluated; experience and training resulted in higher level of agreement for some image types. The 3D-CBCT images did not provide increased interobserver agreement over current 2D-digital lateral cephalograms in determining CVM staging or shape of the CV. The highest agreement in CVM staging was obtained on 2D-digital lateral cephalograms with training.

RESUMEN

Aging-associated anatomic and physiologic decline begins during the fourth decade of life and progresses over the ensuing decades sometimes to a state of frailty, with the decline amplified when there is deconditioning. Aging-related gait and balance disorders leading to an increased risk of falling can be compensated for with the use of exercise interventions, durable medical equipment, and environmental modifications. Caregiver training is an essential component of geriatric rehabilitation.

RESUMEN

Errors in death certification can directly affect the decedent's survivors and the public register. We assessed the effectiveness of an educational seminar targeting frequent and important errors identified by local death certificate (DC) evaluation. Retrospective review of 1500 DCs categorized errors and physician specialty. A 60-minute didactic/case-based seminar was subsequently designed for family medicine physician (FAM) participants, with administration of presurvey, immediate post, and 2-month postsurveys. Most DCs were completed by FAM (73%), followed by internists (18%) and surgeons (3%). Error occurrence (EO) rate ranged between 32 and 75% across all specialities. Family medicine physician experienced in palliative care had the lowest EO rate (32%), significantly lower (P < 0.001) than FAM without interest in palliative care (62%), internal medicine (62%), and surgery (75%). Common errors were use of abbreviations (26%), mechanism as underlying cause of death (23%), and no underlying cause of death recorded (22%). Presurvey participants (n = 72) had an overall EO rate of 72% (64% excluding formatting errors). Immediate postsurvey (n = 75) and 2-month postsurvey (n = 24) participants demonstrated significantly lower overall EO (34% and 24%, respectively), compared with the Pre-S (P < 0.05). A 60-minute seminar on death certification reduced EO rate with perceived long-term effects.

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: Prior studies demonstrate that social media are used by plastic surgeons to educate and engage. The hashtag #PlasticSurgery has been studied previously and is embraced by American plastic surgeons and journals; however, no studies have examined its use or adoption across Europe. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 800 tweets containing the words "plastic surgery" or the hashtag #PlasticSurgery in four of the most spoken European languages worldwide excluding English (Spanish, #CirugiaPlastica; French, #ChirurgiePlastique; Portuguese, #CirurgiaPlastica; and German, #PlastischeChirurgie) was performed. The following were assessed: identity of author, subject matter, use of the hashtag #PlasticSurgery in each language, whether posts by surgeons and academic institutions were self-promotional or educational, and whether a link to a journal article or a reference in PubMed was provided. RESULTS: Seventeen percent and 3 percent of analyzed tweets came from plastic surgeons or academic institutions, respectively; only 17.5 percent of them were for educational purpose. None of them had any digital link to a peer-reviewed article or a scientific journal. CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates the low participation of plastic surgeons and academic institutions in social media (especially for education) in four of the major world languages. Social media should be considered in Europe as an opportunity to increase leadership, improve education, and spread knowledge of plastic surgery by board-certified plastic surgeons.

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: During Transvaginal Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (vNOTES) the surgeon operates exclusively through a single vaginal entry point, leaving no external scarring. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the learning curve of vNOTES hysterectomy by experienced gynecologists based on surgical times and short-term outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted of the first 25 vNOTES hysterectomy surgeries performed from July to December 2018 at Rambam Health Care Campus by a single surgeon. The primary outcome was hysterectomy time. Secondary outcomes included intra-operative bleeding, length of hospitalization, postoperative pain, and need for analgesia. Socio-demographic and clinical data were retrieved from patient electronic medical charts. RESULTS: Median age was 64.5 years (range 40-79). Median hysterectomy time was 38 minutes (range 30-49) from the first cut until completion. Comparisons between median hysterectomy time in the first 10 hysterectomies and in the 15 subsequent procedures demonstrated a significant decrease in median total time: 45 minutes (range 41-49) vs. 32 minutes (range 30-38), respectively (P = 0.024). The median estimated intraoperative blood loss decreased from 100 ml (range 70-200) in the first 10 hysterectomies to 40 ml (range 20-100) in the subsequent procedures (P = 0.011). CONCLUSIONS: vNOTES hysterectomy is feasible by an experienced gynecologist, with an exponential improvement in surgical performance in a short period as expressed by the improvement in hysterectomy time, low complication rates, negligible blood loss, minimal post-surgical pain, fast recovery, and short hospitalization. vNOTES allows easier and safer access to adnexal removal compared to conventional vaginal surgery.

RESUMEN

This review focused on the progress in laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy(LPD) in the past six years.With the appropriate approaches under laparoscopy, including the resection and reconstruction, LPD has been proved to be safe and feasible. In some centers, LPD has been routine with rapid growth of numbers, it not only benefit the patients with fast recovery, but also benefit the trainees with similar sights as the primary surgeon and good videos of the procedures. However, LPD is still controversial as the more complications in some centers and inconclusive oncologic outcomes. Thus, in the further, a long-time outcome monitoring of LPD is essential. A registry of a prospectively maintained database may be a need for LPD to evaluate its outcomes by multicenter randomized control trials, and real world research may be of value. Structured LPD training programs are valuable for the new surgeons.

RESUMEN

INTRODUCTION: The study aimed to determine the effectiveness of an intervention for unhealthy visual behaviors of school-age children using a wearable device (Clouclip). METHOD: The design was a self-controlled prospective study. Clouclip, with the vibration alert disabled, was first applied to measure baseline near-work behaviors in the first week. The vibration alert was then enabled to signal unhealthy visual behaviors (near-work distance < 30 cm and >5 seconds, or near-work distance <60 cm for >45 minutes) for 3 weeks. Near-work behaviors were measured again at the first week and the first month after intervention, respectively. The changes in behaviors between the baseline and the first week and the first month after intervention were analyzed. RESULTS: Sixty-seven subjects were eligible for this experiment (the mean age 10.45 ±â€Š0.50 years, 34 boys). Children who logged sufficient wearing time (12.30 ±â€Š0.18 hours on weekdays and 12.16 ±â€Š0.23 hours on weekends) were included for analysis. The average daily near-work distance was significantly increased after the vibration intervention. The time ratio of near-work activity <30 cm to the total <60 cm and the frequency of continuous near-work (distance <60 cm and continuous time >30 minutes) were significantly decreased after the intervention. Although some of the effects were reversed with time following the intervention, some were observed to be maintained until the end of the observation period, and the improvement of the behaviors was more prominent in children who had a shorter near-work distance (<30 cm) at baseline. CONCLUSIONS: In conclusion, Clouclip can significantly modify near-work behaviors in school-age children and it can last a certain period of time. If these behaviors are causes of myopia development and progression, Clouclip might provide a strategy for managing myopia.

RESUMEN

OBJECTIVE: To improve the results of treatment of patients undergoing laparotomy by using of a new method of aponeurosis suturing after laparotomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Training process for a new method of aponeurosis suturing after laparotomy was organized on the patented medical simulator for learning the technique of laparotomy closure. The method was introduced into surgical practice later. The study involved 130 patients who underwent emergency abdominal surgery through median laparotomy. The main group consisted of 70 patients (laparotomy closure using the proposed method (RF patent No.2644846 dated 02/14/18). Interrupted sutures were applied for aponeurosis suturing in the control group. RESULTS: Duration of laparotomy closure was similar in both groups. Postoperative ventral hernias in 1 year after surgery occurred in 5 (8%) patients of the main group and in 11 (18%) patients of the control group. CONCLUSION: The proposed method of aponeurosis suturing after laparotomy is mastered by students and serves as effective method for prevention of postoperative ventral hernias and eventration.

RESUMEN

Importance: The number of patients presenting to emergency departments (EDs) for psychiatric care continues to increase. Psychiatrists often make a conservative recommendation to admit patients because robust outpatient services for close follow-up are lacking. Objective: To assess whether the availability of a 45-day behavioral health-virtual patient navigation program decreases hospitalization among patients presenting to the ED with a behavioral health crisis or need. Design, Setting, and Participants: This randomized clinical trial enrolled 637 patients who presented to 6 EDs spanning urban and suburban locations within a large integrated health care system in North Carolina from June 12, 2017, through February 14, 2018; patients were followed up for up to 45 days. Eligible patients were aged 18 years or older, with a behavioral health crisis and a completed telepsychiatric ED consultation. The availability of the behavioral health-virtual patient navigation intervention was randomly allocated to specific days (Monday through Friday from 7 am to 7 pm) so that, in a 2-week block, there were 5 intervention days and 5 usual care days; 323 patients presented on days when the program was offered, and 314 presented on usual care days. Data analysis was performed from March 7 through June 13, 2018, using an intention-to-treat approach. Interventions: The behavioral health-virtual patient navigation program included video contact with a patient while in the ED and telephonic outreach 24 to 72 hours after discharge and then at least weekly for up to 45 days. Main Outcomes and Measures: The primary outcome was the conversion of an ED encounter to hospital admission. Secondary outcomes included 45-day follow-up encounters with a self-harm diagnosis and postdischarge acute care use. Results: Among 637 participants, 358 (56.2%) were men, and the mean (SD) age was 39.7 (16.6) years. The conversion rates were 55.1% (178 of 323) in the intervention group vs 63.1% (198 of 314) in the usual care group (odds ratio, 0.74; 95% CI, 0.54-1.02; P = .06). The percentage of patient encounters with follow-up encounters having a self-harm diagnosis was significantly lower in the intervention group compared with the usual care group (36.8% [119 of 323] vs 45.5% [143 of 314]; P = .03). Conclusions and Relevance: Although the primary result did not reach statistical significance, there is a strong signal of potential positive benefit in an area that lacks evidence, suggesting that there should be additional investment and inquiry into virtual behavioral health programs. Trial Registration: ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT03204643.

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND & PROBLEMS: Early rehabilitation after stroke is important for the recovery of bodily functions in stroke patients. However, the percentage of completion of early limb rehabilitation among stroke patients is only 16%. PURPOSE: Raise the early rehabilitation intervention rate to 88% for patients with stroke within 24 hours of hospitalization. RESOLUTION: We developed an education course on post-stroke rehabilitation and a related e-Learning course as well as organized an 'alliance for recovery' team. In addition, we established a standard for post-stroke relay rehabilitation and designed rehabilitation relay cards, Xbox rehabilitation games, and nine squares challenge for brain stroke care. RESULTS: The accuracy of the knowledge of nursing staff related to physical rehabilitation improved from 72.4% to 100%; the accuracy of their perceptions regarding early limb rehabilitation increased from 16% to 100%; and patient satisfaction increased from 68% to 98%. CONCLUSIONS: We deployed diverse and innovative strategies to assist limb rehabilitation in patients with stroke. Patients and caregivers should be encouraged to participate in early rehabilitation and related programs and should apply the skills and rehabilitation activities learned to daily life.

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this Web-based survey was to elucidate the current perspectives of plastic surgery residency program directors on training residents to perform gender-affirming surgery. METHODS: Web-based surveys were distributed to 79 plastic surgery program directors. Demographic information and perspectives on training of gender-affirming surgery in plastic surgery residency were queried. RESULTS: Of 79 distributed surveys, there were 43 responses (54 percent). Overall, program directors reported that their trainees were prepared to address plastic surgery-related transgender concerns (67 percent), and believe plastic surgeons are the most appropriate specialty referral for each type of gender-affirming surgery (top/chest, 98 percent; facial, 95 percent; and bottom/genital, 79 percent). Ninety-three percent of program directors noted that transgender surgery is becoming more accepted and/or practiced in their referral area, with 26 percent reporting a dedicated clinic experience. There was a mixed response on the need for additional fellowship training for gender-affirming surgery. Residents are exposed to significantly more bottom (p = 0.0018), top (p = 0.0013), and facial operations (p = 0.00005) if they rotate through a "gender" clinic. CONCLUSIONS: Of the queried program directors, the majority feel their residents are well-trained in gender-affirming surgery. However, residents have more clinical exposure in facial and top (chest) gender-affirming surgery as compared to bottom (genital) surgery. Although most program directors agree that plastic surgeons are the most important referral for top, bottom, and facial operations, there is less consensus over the role of fellowship training. Most program directors reported a desire to devote additional CME time to the topic in the coming years.

RESUMEN

Valbenazine and deutetrabenazine are FDA-approved as treatment for tardive dyskinesia (TD). Both medications are vesicular monoamine transporter type 2 (VMAT2) inhibitors, and both are effective for reducing TD symptoms. Clinicians need to be aware of the adverse effects of valbenazine and deutetrabenazine, as well as other key differences between the two, in order to individualize treatment. Using the Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale assists clinicians in assessing progress for each patient. Treating TD effectively with these new medications will reduce the burden of the condition for patients.

RESUMEN

Mock board exams are common in residency programs across many disciplines. However, the value of mock board results in predicting success on the actual certifying examination is largely anecdotal and undocumented. The University of Tennessee anatomic pathology residency program has a long history of giving mock board exams twice a year during the course of the 3-year diagnostic training program. The mock exams give residents a sense of the types of questions that may appear on the actual certifying examination. The resulting scores serve to help identify improvement areas to focus additional study. In addition, by providing residents the mental and physical experiences designed to mimic the test day, we hope to better prepare these trainees for optimal performance on the certifying examination. This study correlated mock board results of 16 anatomic pathology residents, from July 2006 through January 2016, with their subsequent performance on the certifying exam. The results of these biannual exams were significantly correlated (p < .001) with results for the American College of Veterinary Pathologists Certifying Examination.
