Preventing Stroke in People With Atrial Fibrillation

Preventing Stroke in People With Atrial Fibrillation | DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION | Scoop.it
When blood does not flow smoothly, there is a chance that the blood can form clots. If a blood clot has formed in the heart, it can be carried by the bloodstream to other areas of the body (thromboembolism). This is dangerous because the clot can become wedged in a smaller blood vessel and decrease the flow of blood to the area that blood vessel supplies.

A blood clot that travels to the small blood vessels in the brain can decrease or block blood flow to the brain, causing injury to the brain (ischemic stroke).

The chance of forming blood clots is different from person to person. Atrial fibrillation is not the only factor that creates blood clots; some people may have other medical problems that can increase the chance of forming blood clots or having a stroke. Your doctor will consider your situation to decide whether you have a low or high risk of blood clots or stroke.

Via Seth Bilazarian, MD
Shyam Kumar Chaturvedi's insight:

Atrial fibrillation can increase the risk of thromboembolism and ischemic stroke. Treatment for atrial fibrillation might require anticoagulation, but each patient should be considered individually. The risk of stroke needs to be considered with other medical details, such as the risk of bleeding, to determine the best plan for each patient.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, November 8, 2014 2:19 PM

Because infectious diseases are a major source of morbidity and mortality in the majority of patients with primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs), the application of a prophylactic regimen is often necessary. However, because of the variety of PIDs and pathogens involved, and because evidence is scarce, practices are heterogeneous. To homogenize practices among centers, the French National Reference Center for PIDs aimed at elaborating recommendations for anti-infectious prophylaxis for the most common PIDs. We performed a literature review of infectious complications and prophylactic regimens associated with the most frequent PIDs. Then, a working group including different specialists systematically debated about chemoprophylaxis, immunotherapy, immunization, and recommendations for patients. Grading of prophylaxis was done using strength of recommendations (decreasing from A to D) and evidence level (decreasing from I to III). These might help infectious diseases specialists in the management of PIDs and improving the outcome of patients with PIDs.

A technology that can detect multiple of cancers with a standard blood test that can be used in a GP's surgery – or even someone's home – has been developed by a startup company, Miroculus.

It works by detecting microRNAs - a type of molecule which can be used to identify illnesses such as cancer, diabetes and even Alzheimer's - from a blood sample using technology and biochemistry usually reserved for high-tech laboratories.

The company says the technology – which is undergoing clinical tests in hospitals at the moment - could be ready within five years.

The use of Facebook in medical education – A literature review

The use of Facebook in medical education – A literature review | DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION | Scoop.it
Abstract

Background: The vogue of social media has changed interpersonal communication as well as learning and teaching opportunities in medical education. The most popular social media tool is Facebook. Its features provide potentially useful support for the education of medical students but it also means that some new challenges will have to be faced.

Aims: This review aimed to find out how Facebook has been integrated into medical education. A systematical review of the current literature and grade of evidence is provided, research gaps are identified, links to prior reviews are drawn and implications for the future are discussed.

Method: The authors searched six databases. Inclusion criteria were defined and the authors independently reviewed the search results. The key information of the articles included was methodically abstracted and coded, synthesized and discussed in the categories study design, study participants’phase of medical education and study content.

Results: 16 articles met all inclusion criteria. 45-96% of health care professionals in all phases of their medical education have a Facebook profile. Most studies focused on Facebook and digital professionalism. Unprofessional behavior and privacy violations occurred in 0.02% to 16%. In terms of learning and teaching environment, Facebook is well accepted by medical students. It is used to prepare for exams, share online material, discuss clinical cases, organize face-to-face sessions and exchange information on clerkships. A few educational materials to teach Facebook professionalism were positively evaluated. There seems to be no conclusive evidence as to whether medical students benefit from Facebook as a learning environment on higher competence levels.

Discussion: Facebook influences a myriad of aspects of health care professionals, particularly at undergraduate and graduate level in medical education. Despite an increasing number of interventions, there is a lack of conclusive evidence in terms of its educational effectiveness. Furthermore, we suggest that digital professionalism be integrated in established and emerging competency-based catalogues.

HIV in the countries most affected by Ebola

Ebola News and Views's curator insight, November 6, 2014 4:03 AM

In the countries most affected by Ebola, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, there are an estimated 210 000 [200 000–250 000] people living with HIV and about 50 000 people receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART).

In order to provide continuity of treatment to people on ART, community networks, supported by UNAIDS have been working with the National AIDS Councils to establish additional service delivery points. People on ART have been collecting their medicines from the offices of the National AIDS Councils and wherever possible, patients have been given supplies for longer periods than usual.

Graham Player Ph.D.'s curator insight, October 31, 2014 3:03 PM

Personalized genetic information to guide medical decisions is increasingly becoming available. A study was done to determine if individualized genetic and environmental risk assessment (GERA) of colorectal cancer susceptibility improves adherence to screening tests in average-risk persons.

Researchers studied 783 people aged over 50 who were found to be at risk for colorectal cancer and who had not undertaken prior screening. All the participants were told of their apparent risk for the cancer.

Two-thirds of the people in the study received comprehensive advice about colon cancer screening, a session of genetic counseling and a blood test that could tell them whether they were at average or increased risk for colon cancer. The other third received only the advice about the advantages of screening.

Over the next 6-months those people who chose to have screening tests in each of the two groups was basically the same – 33.1% and 35.7% respectively. This study example shows that giving people knowledge of the availability of personalized risk assessment testing made no difference to their decision to undertake testing.
