The European Association for Predictive, Preventive and Personalised Medicine (EPMA) considers acute problems in medical sciences as well as the quality and management of medical services challenging health care systems in Europe and worldwide. This actuality has motivated the representatives of EPMA to comment on the efforts in promoting an integrative approach based on multidisciplinary expertise to advance health care-related research and management. The current paper provides a global overview of the problems related to medical services: pandemic scenario in the progression of common non-communicable diseases, delayed interventional approaches of reactive medicine, poor economy of health care systems, lack of...
Neumonía nosocomial y multirresistencias en una unidad de cuidados intensivos de adultos de un hospital de tercer nivel - Guzmán Herrador, B.; Díaz Molina, C.; Farouk Allam, Mohamed; Fernández-Crehuet Navajas, Rafael
To determine the incidence and etiology of Nosocomial pneumonia (NP) in adult ICU of Reina Sofia University
Hospital (RSUH) of Córdoba.
The Department of Preventive Medicine of RSUH conducted a prospective cohort
study for admitted patients at adults� ICU from 2006 to 2009. The following incidence rates were calculated: accumulated
incidence (AI) rate of patients with NP and incidence density of pneumonia associated with mechanical ventilation. We conducted a descriptive statistical analysis with calculation of the frequencies.
There were registered 233 patients with
NP (AI of NP of admitted patients 5.3/100). About 96.6% of patients with NP were previously subjected to mechanical ventilation (MV). The incidence...
Quantifying public preferences for different bowel preparation options prior to screening CT colonography: a discrete choice experiment. - Ghanouni, A; Halligan, S; Taylor, SA; Boone, D; Plumb, A; Stoffel, S; Morris, S; Yao, GL; Zhu, S; Lilford, R; Wardle, J; von Wagner, C
CT colonography (CTC) may be an acceptable test for colorectal cancer screening but bowel preparation can be a barrier to uptake. This study tested the hypothesis that prospective screening invitees would prefer full-laxative preparation with higher sensitivity and specificity for polyps, despite greater burden, over less burdensome reduced-laxative or non-laxative alternatives with lower sensitivity and specificity.
