What Are Complications of Oropharyngeal Trauma?

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 00:37:55 +0100

Discussion Oropharyngeal trauma is common and ranges from minor contusions to severe trauma of the head and neck. Sudden movement while having a foreign object in the mouth is a very common scenario with falls or collisions being common mechanisms. Common objects include toys, sticks, pens/pencils, chopsticks, toothbrushes, and popsicle sticks. Many of these injuries cause minimal problems such as a contusion to lips (i.e. “fat lip”). In general, the more anterior the location the more common the injury and the less likely to have a severe injury (i.e. lips). Whereas posterior structures are more protected, but because of their location next to vital structures, the potential complications can be higher. Similarly, midline injuries tend to be less risk for complications than l...

April 12, 2018Since 2011, IntraHealth International has reached more than 960,000 boys and men in Tanzania with VMMC.  “A circumcised male is expected to be very brave and not display any sign of fear,” says Moses Matiko. “During traditional circumcision, he is expected to stay still and not show he is experiencing pain. There are selected community members who watch to see that he observes the rules.”Moses grew up in Tarime District in Mara, a region in northeast Tanzania, and is part of the Kurya society. For Kurya clans, traditional circumcision like Moses describes —usually with no painkillers and performed in large groups—is an important cultural practice that marks the transition from being a boy to becoming a man.  Traditional circumcision, common in some parts of Tanz...

Scandal-plagued Theranos this week gave "all but a small group of employees" a 60-day termination notice, according to CEO Elizabeth Holmes' "confidential" letter to shareholders that Buzzfeed published.  "The most viable option that we have identified to forestall a near-term sale or a potential default under our credit agreement is further investment by one or more of you," Holmes wrote to shareholders. "In light of where we are, this is no easy ask. However, given your support of the company over the years, we wanted to provide this opportunity before we proceed too far down the current path." The letter suggests that without further funding the company's cash reserves will drop below the $3 million minimum liquidity threshold required by its lender, the Fortress Investment Group. N...

In Iowa, Teachers Learn How to 'Stop The Bleed'

Mon, 09 Apr 2018 15:33:00 +0100

PLEASANT HILL, Iowa (AP) — As she learned the basics of applying direct pressure, packing a wound with gauze and tying a tourniquet, sixth-grade math and social studies teacher Kari Stafford shook her head at the thought that this may now be an essential skill for her profession. Stafford didn't like it, but with school shootings now a regular occurrence, she and her colleagues have reluctantly accepted that the attacks won't stop and that teachers must know how to keep the victims from bleeding to death.

How Do You Fix A Broken Nail?

Mon, 09 Apr 2018 00:14:02 +0100

Discussion Distal digits, especially of the hand, are important as they provide support for pinching and grip, give tactile sensation and contribute to cosmesis. Trauma to the distal digit and nailbed ranges from significant trauma with digital crush injuries or amputation to minor broken nails causing only annoyance. Most injuries especially in children involve the hand especially the middle finger. The dominant hand is more common if the child has a hand-preference. Usually they occur indoors especially being caused by being pinched by a door. Significant trauma requires surgical intervention and may require specialty surgical intervention by a hand specialist. Survival rates for distal digital amputations with re-implantation vary based on several factors. A 2011 systematic review of f...

A Diagnostic Dilemma: Sometimes You ’ ll Never Know

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 00:04:09 +0100

Discussion It can be difficult to consider what is the problem when a health care provider is presented with a group of seemingly disparate signs and symptoms with a history and time course that do not match classic (or commonly atypical) disease presentations. Common things happen commonly, so when symptoms occur without the usual co-occurring symptoms, unusual symptoms or time courses, it can be challenging. The provider must develop a reasonable differential diagnosis and balance how far to go with the evaluation against how much to monitor the patient for new signs or symptoms which can provide new information. Patient safety and the natural time course of diseases have to be considered. Providers also recognize that well-appearing individuals with acute onset of problems usually have ...

Magnetic nanoparticles will help stop internal bleeding 15 times more effectively

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 05:00:00 +0100

(ITMO University) Scientists from ITMO University have found a way to effectively stop internal bleeding by magnetically-driven nanoparticles containing thrombin. A drug based on these nanoparticles can be injected intravenously and delivered straight to the site of a vascular injury. It can accelerate local clot formation and reduce overall blood loss by 15 times. The nanoparticles are not toxic to humans and can potentially be used for safe treatment. The results were published in Scientific Reports. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

You enter the alley and see a body lying to the side of a dumpster. Moving closer, you see it’s a male in his 20s or 30s. He’s wrapped in blankets and is wearing several layers of clothes and you can’t see much more than the condensation coming from his mouth with each one of his breaths. The shelter volunteer tells you the man’s name is Jeff, that he’s a frequent guest at the shelter. Last night he didn’t show up, and volunteers found him this morning in the alley. You call his name loudly and carefully shake Jeff’s shoulder with no response other than a soft moan and a bit of facial grimace. You car...

You Asked: Is It Bad To Pick Your Nose?

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 10:00:27 +0100

Most agree that nose-picking is an unseemly habit. But a casual observation of drivers (who seem to think no one can see them through clear glass) suggests that a lot of people pick when they believe no one’s watching. Setting aside the shame of being busted knuckle-deep in nostril, can picking your nose hurt your health? “Probably the number-one thing we worry about is digital trauma, which is a fancy name for bleeding related to picking,” says Dr. Brett Comer, a head and neck surgeon and assistant professor of otolaryngology at the University of Kentucky. The skin on the inside of the nose is more delicate than skin outside of it, and so more susceptible to damage, Comer says. Once that damage occurs, the inside of the nose is also slow to repair itself. A scrape or cu...

The move means Banyan Biomarkers can commercialize its test, giving the company an early lead in the biotech industry’s race to find a way to diagnose concussions. The test doesn’t detect concussions and the approval won’t immediately change how patients with suspected concussions or other brain trauma are treated. But Wednesday’s green light by the Food and Drug Administration “is a big deal because then it opens the door and accelerates technology,” said Michael McCrea, a brain injury expert at Medical College of Wisconsin. The test detects two proteins present in brain cells that can leak into the bloodstream following a blow to ...
