[Bilateral loss of the horizontal vestibulo-ocular reflex in Wernicke encephalopathy - a specific and early clinical sign].

Lakartidningen 2019 Jan 24;116. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Skane's University Hospital - Ear, nose and throat clinic Lund, Sweden - Lund, Sweden.

Wernicke encephalopathy is a condition in which thiamine deficiency causes cognitive dysfunction, ataxia and eye motor abnormalities. The condition is potentially reversible if treated with high doses of intravenous thiamine (vitamin B1). The video head impulse test, in which the vestibulo-ocular reflex is tested, can reveal an early specific sign of selective dysfunction in the medial vestibular nuclei by demonstrating selective dysfunction of the horisontal vestibulo-ocular reflex.

Lakartidningen 2019 Jan 18;116. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Umeå universitet - Umeå, Sweden Umeå universitet - Umeå, Sweden.

The recently updated Swedish National Guidelines on prevention and lifestyle habits (tobacco use, hazardous use of alcohol, insufficient physical activity and unhealthy eating habits) emphasize the importance of supporting lifestyle changes among risk individuals, such as already affected by disease, carriers of risk factors that increase the risk of disease, and people with social vulnerability. More measures targeting youth are included, as well as measures to avoid smoking and alcohol use prior to surgery. Physicians have a key role in implementation of the new guidelines, as a great majority of patients who attend healthcare and discuss lifestyle habits do so with a physician. Read More

Norra Alvsborgs lanssjukhus - ÖNH-kliniken Trollhattan, Sweden Norra Alvsborgs lanssjukhus - ÖNH-kliniken Trollhattan, Sweden.

Continuous monitoring of the need to educate specialists is important in the planning of health care resources. In this article, the authors present a questionnaire-based tool that is answered by the heads of Departments of ear, nose and throat (ENT) across Sweden every year. In Stockholm, the movement of patients from university to private ENT has dramatically decreased specialist training in ENT, and this can be seen by the employment survey instrument called »Tjänsteenkäten«.

Linköpings universitet - Institutionen för TEMA - Teknik och social förändring Linköping, Sweden Linköpings universitet - Institutionen för TEMA - Teknik och social förändring Linköping, Sweden.

Patients' experience of abuse in health care (AHC) is common, and may cause long-lasting suffering. In Sweden, lifetime prevalence is estimated at 20 per cent among female patients and 8 per cent among male patients, and a background of other abuse is a risk factor. Most health care staff have experience of patients who have been abused, but the topic is surrounded by silence from both patients and caregivers. Read More

One aim of the Bunkeflo project is to evaluate if daily school physical activity (PA) is associated with higher final school grades and improved eligibility for upper secondary school. One elementary school extended PA throughout elementary school to 200 minutes/week while control schools continued with in mean 60 minutes/week. We then registered final school grades and eligibility for upper secondary school in children who began first grade in the intervention school during the years before the intervention (1994-1997) and in the children who started 1998-2003 (that is, who had daily PA during the 9 compulsory school years).

[The doctor's personal knowledge of patients saved resources and reduced mortality in an American study. How should a care system in Sweden be designed to get similar effects?]

Lakartidningen 2019 Jan 4;116. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Primärvårdens FoU enhet - Futurum Jönköping Jönköping, Sweden Primärvårdens FoU enhet - Futurum Jönköping Jönköping, Sweden.

In a recent study of more than 500 000 hospitalisations, doctors with personal knowledge of their patients used less resources, more often discharged them to their own home and their patients had lower mortality. Furthermore, other studies have shown that personal continuity increases patient satisfaction as well as compliance and reduces costs for medical services and visits to emergency services. In a Swedish context we discuss how a combination of organizational factors and personal listing on physicians and continuity of care favour personal knowledge between physician and patient and contribute to a primary care that works well for both the frail elderly and the healthy young.

Stroke rehabilitation has often been based on tradition instead of evidence-based methods in the clinical practice. The recently updated Swedish national stroke guidelines have emphasized the amount of evidence-based stroke rehabilitation that is expected to be implemented in clinical practice. The most important recommendations in regarding stroke rehabilitation are the early support discharge, a structured follow-up at the subacute stage for identifying unmet rehabilitation needs and high intensity task-specific training from early to chronic phases.

The Swedish translation of the diagnostic manual DSM-5 has chosen to use the term »hasardspelsyndrom« for Gambling disorder (GD), although the term gambling addiction is still in use. The inclusion of GD in DSM-5 has led to new amendments that the social and healthcare services have obligations to deal with problematic gambling in the same way as substance use disorders. Now, new Swedish gambling rules will enter into force on January 1, 2019. Read More

Wandering spleen is a rare reason for acute abdominal pain in pediatric patients caused by laxity of the splenic ligaments. It can be complicated by torsion of the pedicle, leading to ischemia, a situation that in most cases results in acute abdominal surgery. To prevent ischemia of a mobile spleen caused by a total occlusion of the pedicle, splenopexy can be considered. Read More
