Is placing a victim in the left lateral decubitus position an effective first aid intervention for acute oral poisoning? A systematic review.

Clin Toxicol (Phila) 2019 Feb 20:1-14. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

a Centre for Evidence-Based Practice (CEBaP) , Belgian Red Cross, Mechelen , Belgium.

Introduction: In acute oral poisoning, any first aid intervention that limits or delays the uptake of the ingested substance, and which can be performed by bystanders as first responders, might assist in reducing morbidity if a toxic substance has been ingested. The current recommendation by the International Federation of Red Cross/Red Crescent Societies is to place a victim in the left lateral decubitus position.

Objective: The aim of this PRISMA compliant systematic review is to assess whether the current recommendation by the International Federation of Red Cross/Red Crescent Societies decreases or delays the absorption of an orally ingested poison. Read More

Keeping Children Still in Medical Imaging Examinations- Immobilisation or Restraint: A Literature Review.

J Med Imaging Radiat Sci 2019 Mar 1;50(1):179-187. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Department of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences, Monash University, Clayton, VIC, Australia; Department of Medical Imaging, Western Health, St. Albans, VIC, Australia.

Purpose: In paediatric imaging, it is common practice to hold children still for an examination by using immobilisation devices, parents, and/or staff. Historically, there has been a perceived need to restrain a child against their will when uncooperative behaviour was demonstrated. The issue of patient consent and use of physical force forms this fundamental difference between "immobilisation" and "restraint". Read More

The Dual Role of Benzophenone in Visible-Light/Nickel Photoredox-Catalyzed C-H Arylations: Hydrogen-Atom Transfer and Energy Transfer.

Angew Chem Int Ed Engl 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Institute of Organic Chemistry, RWTH Aachen University, Landoltweg 1, 52074, Aachen, Germany.

A dual catalytic protocol for the direct arylation of non-activated C(sp )-H bonds has been developed. Upon photochemical excitation, the excited triplet state of a diaryl ketone photosensitizer abstracts a hydrogen atom from an aliphatic C-H bond. This inherent reactivity was exploited for the generation of benzylic radicals which subsequently enter a nickel catalytic cycle, accomplishing the benzylic arylation. Read More

Systematic review of preoperative carotid duplex ultrasound compared with computed tomography carotid angiography for carotid endarterectomy.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2019 Feb 15:1-9. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Regional Vascular Centre, Royal Preston Hospital , Preston , UK.

Introduction: We reviewed the literature for preoperative computed tomography carotid angiography and/or carotid duplex to determine their respective sensitivity and specificity in assessing the degree of carotid stenosis. We aimed to identify whether one imaging modality can accurately identify critical stenosis in patients presenting with transient ischaemic attack or symptoms of a cerebrovascular accident requiring carotid endarterectomy.

Methods: Systematic search of MEDLINE, Embase, Cochrane database of systematic reviews, all Evidence-Based Medicine Reviews (Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, ACP Journal club, Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects, Cochrane Clinical Answers, Cochrane Controlled Trials Register, Cochrane Methodology Register, Health Technology Assessment and NHS Economic Evaluation Database) for primary studies relating to computed tomography carotid angiography (CTA) and/or carotid duplex ultrasound (CDU).

Assessment of reporting quality of abstracts of systematic reviews with meta-analysis using PRISMA-A and discordance in assessments between raters without prior experience.

BMC Med Res Methodol 2019 Feb 14;19(1):32. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Center for Evidence-Based Medicine and Health Care, Catholic University of Croatia, Ilica 242, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia.

Background: Reporting quality of systematic reviews' (SRs) abstracts is important because this is often the only information about a study that readers have. The aim of this study was to assess adherence of SR abstracts in the field of anesthesiology with the reporting checklist PRISMA extension for Abstracts (PRISMA-A) and to analyze to what extent will the use of PRISMA-A yield concordant ratings in two raters without prior experience with the checklist.

Methods: We analyzed reporting quality of SRs with meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials of interventions published in the field of anesthesiology from 2012 to 2016 by using 12-item PRISMA-A checklist. Read More
