Spigelian hernia: a rare abdominal hernia

Sajid Hussain, Shakil Jawed, Zamurrad Parveen, Md. Asjad Karim Bakhteyar
2018 International Surgery Journal  
Spigelian hernia is a rare variety of abdominal wall hernia occurring through the spigelian fascia which is composed of the aponeurotic layer between rectus muscle medially and semilunar line laterally. Generally it is difficult to diagnose because of their location and non specific symptoms. Diagnosis is aided by ultrasonography and Computerized Tomography. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, it is repaired surgically as risk of incarceration is high. We reported this interesting case of

Introduction Obstructive lung disease, if not managed appropriately and in a timely manner, increases morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to see an obstruction on spirometry reports of clinically asymptomatic oil and gas field workers. Methods In this retrospective observational study, spirometry reports performed at the pulmonary function laboratory of Ziauddin Hospital and University, Karachi, were reviewed. All reports were of the clinically asymptomatic employees of an oil

Obstructive impairment was defined as a forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) to forced vital capacity (FVC) ratio of less than 0.7. Results Of the total of 199 spirometry reports, 197 (99%) were of male employees. The mean age of the employees was 30.52 ± 8.24 years and 46 (23.1%) employee were smokers. Obstruction was observed in 48 (24.1%) of the reports of the employees with 13 (27.1%) smokers and 35 (72.9%) non-smokers. No statistically significant association between obstruction and gender, age, and smoking was observed. Conclusion In this study, we observed obstructive impairment in around one-fourth of the otherwise clinically asymptomatic oil and gas field workers with no apparent impact of baseline smoking behavior.

The effects of group composition on decision quality in a social production community

2010 Proceedings of the 16th ACM international conference on Supporting group work - GROUP '10  
Online social production communities allow efficient construction of valuable and high-quality information sources. To be successful, community members must be effective at collaboration, including making collective decisions in the presence of disagreement. We examined over 100,000 decisions made by small working groups in Wikipedia, and analyzed how decision quality in these online groups is influenced by four group composition factors: the size of the group, how members were invited to the

Effective decision-making and conflict resolution processes are essential to a healthy community. Flawed processes may lead to poor decisions, which are costly to addressnot only can they increase coordination costs and process losses, they can also alienate users and cause them to leave.

We hypothesize that a change in lung ultrasound score (LUS) can assist in the early diagnosis of weaning-induced respiratory failure (RF). The objective of this study was to determine the utility of LUS in weaning patients with mitral regurgitation (MR) from mechanical ventilation (MV). Methods: This prospective observational study included patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who required invasive MV after angiography/angioplasty. Echocardiography was performed and MR was recorded. When
more » ... the patient was considered ready for extubation, a spontaneous breathing trial (SBT) was performed and pre- and post-SBT LUS was calculated. Patients who successfully passed the SBT were extubated and followed up for 48 hours for the signs of RF and outcomes. Results: We enrolled 215 patients, out of which MR occurred in 51(23.7%) patients. On post-SBT lung ultrasound, patients with MR were more likely to have B2 lines compared to those without MR; 15.7% vs. 3.7%; p=0.002 and mean LUS was significantly higher for patients with MR as compared to patients without MR; 2.75±3.21 vs. 1.37± 2.02; p<0.001. Post-extubation RF and mean CCU stay were significantly higher in MR patients, 49.0% (25) vs. 32.3% (53); p=0.030 and 3.53±1.54 days vs. 2.41±1.1 days; p<0.001 respectively. However, re-intubation and coronary care unit (CCU) mortality rate were not significantly different between patients with and without MR; 7.8% (4/51) vs. 3.7% (6/164); p=0.215, and 5.9% (3/51) vs. 3% (5/164); p=0.35 respectively. Conclusions: Bedside LU is a convenient tool to detect changes in cardiopulmonary interactions during weaning for patients with MR post-ACS.

Objective: To find the correlation between thoracic and femoral central venous pressure (CVP) and changes in femoral CVP, if any, incurred by intra-abdominal pressure. Study Design: Cross sectional observational study. Place and Duration of Study: Coronary care unit of National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases Karachi, from Jul 2017 to Sep 2017. Material and Methods: We randomly selected 90 patients who had a thoracic central catheter and another femoral catheter in place. A central venous

Results: Ninety patients participated in our study where mean age was 58.90 ± 11.34 years. The mean thoracic CVP was 11.22 ± 3.53 mmHg while mean femoral CVP was 11.38 ± 3.53 mmHg, with a mean pressure difference of -0.16 mmHg between the two. We also calculated intra-abdominal pressure with mean of 6.20 ± 2.47 mmHg. The reliability of the two methods was determined by intra class coefficient model where we got a higher value of 0.97 with significant p-value of <0.001. We analyzed the limits of agreement between the two approaches by Bland and Altman plot, where the mean difference between thoracic and femoral CVP was -0.16 mmHg (95 % CI - 0.34 - 0.02). Conclusion: Central venous pressure can be reliably and accurately measured through femoral site.

Introduction Mishandled endotracheal cuff pressure may either make ventilation difficult or cause damage to the airway. Therefore, the aim of this audit was to assess the knowledge about endotracheal cuff pressure monitoring with a manometer and manual palpation of pilot balloon among critical care providers. Methods This audit includes 150 critical care providers having experience of handling endotracheal tube (ETT) cuff at critical care area of National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases

Knowledge about endotracheal cuff pressure monitoring with the manometer and deleterious effects of mishandled ETT cuff was assessed using a self-reported questionnaire. Enrolled healthcare providers were asked to palpate the patient and cuff pressure was recorded and categorized. Results Out of 150 participants, 66 (44.0%) were doctors. Only 46 (30.67%) participants had prior knowledge about ETT cuff manometer and 110 (73.33%) had never used a manometer. Similarly only 42 (28.0%) had knowledge of hazardous effects of mishandled ETT cuff. Kappa coefficient of 0.155 with p=0.015 showed significant yet low agreement between participant prediction and the actual amount of air in cuff balloon. Agreement level was comparatively higher for staff as compared to doctors with a Kappa coefficient of 0.210 (p=0.018) vs. 0.133 (p=0.099). Conclusion In this study of knowledge and practice of ETT tube cuff pressure monitoring, we observed low levels of knowledge (30.67%), poor adherence to standard practice (73.33%) and were able to demonstrate poor agreement (Kappa coefficient 0.155; p=0.015) between the palpation method and cuff manometer measurements for assessing cuff pressure.
