Meet Staph epidermidis, gatekeeper of healthy skin | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
As an increasing number of research groups seek to improve human health by genetically modifying an organism that makes the human body its home, new requirements surface. Now, the organisms we modify are returned to the human body in their modified state, where they produce just the right amount of protein, and produce it until no longer necessary (hopefully).

Implementation of an Automated Pediatric Malnutrition Screen Using Anthropometric Measurements in the #EHR

Implementation of an Automated Pediatric Malnutrition Screen Using Anthropometric Measurements in the #EHR | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Nutrition evaluation and intervention in hospitalized pediatric patients is critical, because undernutrition negatively impacts physical and cognitive development, wound healing, immune function, mortality, and quality of life.

 

Multiple, validated pediatric nutrition screening tools are available, yet no consensus on the ideal tool exists.

 

Generally, the aims of the nutrition screening process are identification of current nutrition status and determination of a need for further nutrition assessment and intervention.

 

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has developed what it says is the first automated pediatric malnutrition screening tool using EHR data.

 

In this study the tool was used to analyze anthropometric measurements in the hospital’s Epic EHR—including body mass index, height, length and weight—for inpatients in the pediatric oncology unit at CHOP for a little more than a year, representing about 2,100 hospitalizations.

 

Researchers used software to take note of changes in the anthropometric measurements to assess each hospitalized patient’s risk of malnutrition. For those pediatric cancer patients determined to be at risk, the automated program categorized their risk as either mild, moderate or severe.

 

In the study, 47 percent were classified as at mild risk, 24 percent as moderate risk and 29 percent as severe—consistent with clinical experience and other research. In addition, the overall prevalence of malnutrition was determined to be 42 percent for the study period, which was also consistent with previous studies.

 

“This test study demonstrates the feasibility of using EHR data to create an automated screening tool for malnutrition in pediatric inpatients, Further research is needed to formally assess this screening tool, but it has the potential to identify at-risk patients in the early stages of malnutrition, so we can intervene quickly. In addition, this tool could be implemented to screen all pediatric patients for malnutrition, because it uses data common to all electronic medical records.”

Forecasting life expectancy, years of life lost, and all-cause and cause-specific mortality for 250 causes of death: reference and alternative scenarios for 2016–40 for 195 countries and territories

With the present study, we provide a robust, flexible forecasting platform from which
reference forecasts and alternative health scenarios can be explored in relation to
a wide range of independent drivers of health. Our reference forecast points to overall
improvements through 2040 in most countries, yet the range found across better and
worse health scenarios renders a precarious vision of the future—a world with accelerating
progress from technical innovation but with the potential for worsening health outcomes
in the absence of deliberate policy action.

Which eHealth interventions are most effective for smoking cessation?

Which eHealth interventions are most effective for smoking cessation? | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

The Purpose of this study was to synthesize evidence of the effects and potential effect modifiers of different electronic health (eHealth) interventions to help people quit smoking.

 

Four databases (MEDLINE, PsycINFO, Embase, and The Cochrane Library) were searched in March 2017 using terms that included “smoking cessation”, “eHealth/mHealth” and “electronic technology” to find relevant studies. Meta-analysis and meta-regression analyses were performed.


Results: The review included 108 studies and 110,372 participants. Compared to nonactive control groups (eg, usual care), smoking cessation interventions using web-based and mobile health (mHealth) platform resulted in significantly greater smoking abstinence.

Similarly, smoking cessation trials using tailored text messages  and web-based information and conjunctive nicotine replacement therapy  may also increase cessation.

 

In contrast, little or no benefit for smoking abstinence was found for computer-assisted interventions. The magnitude of effect sizes from mHealth smoking cessation interventions was likely to be greater if the trial was conducted in the USA or Europe and when the intervention included individually tailored text messages. In contrast, high frequency of texts (daily) was less effective than weekly texts.

 

Conclusion

There was consistent evidence that web-based and mHealth smoking cessation interventions may increase abstinence moderately. Methodologic quality of trials and the intervention characteristics (tailored vs untailored) are critical effect modifiers among eHealth smoking cessation interventions, especially for web-based and text messaging trials. Future smoking cessation intervention should take advantages of web-based and mHealth engagement to improve prolonged abstinence.
