How do parents influence their adolescents' use of over-the-counter analgesics: A review of the current literature.

J Clin Nurs 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Health, Oslo Metropolitan University, Oslo, Norway.

Aim And Objectives: Continuous use of over-the-counter analgesics (OTCAs) may prevent adolescents from learning healthier options and might lead to lifelong use of such medicines. It is possible that parents' own use of OTCAs might influence adolescents, but little is known about this issue. Our research questions were; "What are the main factors leading to a high use of OTCAs among adolescents and how can health professionals support these adolescents in their pain management?"

Background: Frequent consumption of OTCAs may cause health problems such as drug-induced headache and liver failure. Read More

Does the intravascular volume status in haemodialysis patients measured by inferior vena cava ultrasound correlate with bioimpedance spectroscopy?

J Clin Nurs 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

School of Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, Curtin University Perth.

Aims And Objectives: This project aimed to evaluate the accuracy of traditional clinical predialytic fluid assessment by renal nurses and the efficacy of 2 additional fluid assessment methods focussing on the potential preventative effect for intradialytic hypotension (IDH).

Background: Predialytic fluid assessment remains a daily challenge for renal nurses, when aiming for adverse-event free haemodialysis treatments. Adding further objective parameters obtained through non-invasive methods into pre- and intradialytic fluid assessment could potentially improve health outcomes for haemodialysis patients. Read More

Université Côte d'Azur, LAMHESS, Nice, France.

Aims And Objectives: The aim of this study was to get a deeper understanding of correlates of perceived HIV-related fatigue by exploring its associations with sociodemographic characteristics and physical activity level of HIV-infected people.

Background: Previous studies on HIV-related fatigue have mainly focused on physiological and psychological characteristics, but few have considered its associations with sociodemographic variables. In addition, while physical activity has been found to reduce acute fatigue among HIV-infected people, its links with chronic HIV-related fatigue remain to be explored. Read More
