ASPECT - Insufficient Care Environment Regarding Privacy, Views, Comfort and Facilities for Critically Ill Patients at One Emergency Department in Vietnam - An Observation Study

Sara Charmi, Amanda Johansson Landell and Kristina Rosengren

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: December 13, 2018

The importance of a healthy environment was noted by Florence Nightingale in the 19th century and is part of nurses' role of increasing health and well-being. The aim of this study was to investigate the care environment in emergency care (emergency ward and intensive care unit) at Hanoi Medical University Hospital in Vietnam. The study was conducted in the emergency department of a teaching hospital in Vietnam using a mixed methods design; quantitative (standardized protocol) and qualitative (field notes) methods with an inductive approach. The data were collected through ASPECT (n = 652) and...

Heart-Lung Acting Together

Robert S Fitzgerald

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: December 12, 2018

Most frequently medical education treats the pulmonary system and the cardiovascular system separately. And this is, indeed, quite understandable because each system's pathologies and their treatments differ in so many ways. However, from another perspective, the physiologist's, both systems are the evolutionary product for capturing oxygen from the external environment and delivering it to the mitochondria in the body's cells for the generation of the energy needed for life's operations. Bound together for maintaining life, the cardiopulmonary system is in fact two sub-systems composed of two...

Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Presenting as a Facial Soft Tissue Metastasis in a Non-Smoker

Berman Zoe, Pearl Joshua and Wiesel Ory

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 12, 2018

Lung cancer is an aggressive disease with projections estimating that more than 150,000 Americans will die in 2018 from lung cancer. Mortality is associated with advanced stage of disease and metastatic disease. While the major sites of metastases are the solid organs, the rate of soft tissue metastases has been reported as 0.75-9%. In an asymptomatic patient who is a nonsmoker, there is low likel...

Widened Mediastinum on Chest X-Ray as an Indicator of Mediastinal Injuries: A Relic of the Past?

Sunder Balasubramaniam, Rachel Yanlin Chen, Deng Tianshu and Teo Li Tserng

Article Type: Retrospective Study | First Published: December 12, 2018

The humble chest X ray (CXR) is an important factor in the assessment of the patient with traumatic injury. The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) programme recommends performing a CXR as part of the secondary survey, and this is widely used in Singapore. All general hospitals that receive trauma patients in Singapore have resuscitation bays capable of rapidly obtaining a CXR film using either a ...

Bioinformatics Analysis of Altered lncRNAs in Peripheral Blood Molecular Cells from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) Patients

Mingjun He, Xiaoli Zhu, Wei Niu, Lingming Kong, Gaofeng Yao and Li-yi Zhang

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 12, 2018

Based on the prior studies, altered lncRNAs in peripheral blood Molecular Cells (PBMC) from depression patients were chosen to perform informatics analysis for lncRNA target gene prediction and functional annotation. Microarray was first used to screen dys regulated lncRNAs in the PBMCs of MDD patients, of which 10 lncRNAs were selected for quantitative real-time Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) study, as well as bioinformatics analysis....

Influence of Anticoagulants on Determination of H2O2 Levels in Blood: Comparison of Citrate and EDTA

Nwose EU, Bwititi PT and Chalada MJ

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 12, 2018

H2O2 is supposed to be part of the laboratory test panel for assessment of oxidative stress. This molecule contributes to oxidative stress by reacting with Fe2+ ions to produce hydroxyl radicals. Anticoagulants, including citrate and EDTA chelate Fe2+, possibly have implications in oxidative stress studies especially when H2O2 is measured. This brief commentary is on the measurability of H2O2 in citrated and EDTA blood samples....

Visual Snow Syndrome: A Case Report and New Treatment Option

Shauna Wentzell and Mary Ryan

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 10, 2018

We present the case of a 47-year-old male who was diagnosed with Visual Snow Syndrome following extensive specialist consults and medical testing. With an unknown pathogenesis, Visual Snow Syndrome is very difficult to treat and there is no one treatment suited for all patients. The patient in this case report was successfully treated with Amitriptyline based on the hypothesis that Visual Snow Syndrome is a form of peripheral neuropathy and pituitary fatigue. With nearly 200 documented cases of visual snow worldwide, this case will add to the possible successful treatment options....

Biological Role of Transcription Factor Twist1 in Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma and Follicular Lymphoma

Vanessa Szablewski, Natacha Merindol, Sophie Ballazin, Valerie Costes-Martineau and Nathalie Bonnefoy

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: December 08, 2018

Twist1 expression was investigated by both real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-QPCR) and immunohistochemistry in 8 samples from reactive lymphoid tissues, 38 samples from DLBCL and 25 samples from FL patients. Results were correlated with clinicopathologic features. Both RT-QPCR and immunohistochemistry demonstrated increased Twist1 in DLBCL and FL in comparison to benign lymph no...

Pulmonary Strongyloidiasis in a Patient with Terminal Pulmonary Syndrome in Manabi Province, Ecuador: A Report Case

Juan Carlos Alava, Susana Alava and Juan Jose Alava

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 08, 2018

Strongyloides stercoralis is a common nematode causing intestinal parasitosis in the Ecuadorian population, but cases of lung infection by this helminth have not been documented in Ecuador. We document the first case of pulmonary strongyloidias is caused by S. stercoralis filariform larvae in a male patient from ManabĂ­ Province (Ecuador), showing clinical symptoms of terminal pulmonary syndrome. ...

Treatment of a Mandibular Anterior Lingual Recession Defect with Minimally Invasive Laterally Closed Tunneling Technique and Sub-Epithelial Connective Tissue Graft

Vrushali Abhyankar, David Wong and Jules Mascarenhas

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 08, 2018

Surgical coverage of mandibular lingual recession is not a routinely implemented treatment procedure because of its lack of esthetic significance, which is one of the most common indications for recession coverage. A gold standard for recession coverage, the sub epithelial connective graft is used in conjunction with a novel modification of the tunneling technique to treat the lingual recession on...
