Aug 2nd, 2020 - This new edition of the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) guidelines for the management of hemophilia comes at an exciting time in the evolution of the diagnosis and treatment of this condition. Since the publication of the second edition in 2012, tremendous advances have been made in several aspects of the management of hemophilia. These include genetic assessment as well as therapy with ma...
May 14th, 2018 - The present guideline is intended to be a resource for the clinical and public health practice communities. It is designed to be comprehensive but succinct and practical in providing guidance for prevention, detection, evaluation, and management of high BP.
Oct 31st, 2017 - Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women in the United States. Breast reconstruction surgery is a commonly used therapy for patients with breast cancer.

Feb 19th, 2013 - Based on a review of the available evidence, it appears that the administration of mild to moderate sedation does not confound the results or diagnostic validity of spinal injection procedures. Specifically, immediate pain relief after cervical and lumbar facet joint controlled nerve blocks is not enhanced by IV sedation with midazolam or fentanyl.
Sep 30th, 2018 - Girls and women with Turner syndrome face a lifelong struggle with both congenital heart disease and acquired cardiovascular conditions. Bicuspid aortic valve is common, and many have left-sided heart obstructive disease of varying severity, from hypoplastic left-sided heart syndrome to minimal aortic stenosis or coarctation of the aorta.

Jan 31st, 2013 - Encounters for infertility care are opportunities to assess and update immunization status. Women of reproductive age are often unaware of their need for immunization, their own immunization status, and the potentially serious consequences of preventable disease on pregnancy outcome.
May 28th, 2018 - Cardiac arrest effectiveness trials have traditionally reported outcomes that focus on survival. A lack of consistency in outcome reporting between trials limits the opportunities to pool results for meta-analysis.

Feb 14th, 2017 - The following recommendations are intended as a guideline for clinicians in choosing a specific pharmacological agent for treatment of chronic insomnia in adults, when such treatment is indicated. Under GRADE, a STRONG recommendation is one that clinicians should, under most circumstances, follow.

Jul 31st, 2013 - Work-related asthma is a common occupational lung disease. The scope of the Fourth Jack Pepys Workshop that was held in May 2010 went beyond asthma to include discussion of other occupational airway diseases, in particular occupationally related chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and bronchiolitis.
Jan 31st, 2016 - Ready access to physiologic measures, including respiratory mechanics, lung volumes, and ventilation/perfusion inhomogeneity, could optimize the clinical management of the critically ill pediatric or neonatal patient and minimize lung injury. There are many techniques for measuring respiratory function in infants and children but very limited information on the technical ease and applicability.

Feb 2nd, 2014 - This clinical practice guideline is an update and replacement for an earlier guideline published in 2006 by the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery Foundation. This update provides evidence-based recommendations to manage acute otitis externa (AOE), defined as diffuse inflammation of the external ear canal, which may also involve the pinna or tympanic membrane.

Jun 25th, 2004 - Untreated amblyopic patients are at a greater risk for loss of vision in the better eye. The optometrist should carefully outline the possible outcome without treatment, including the risk for impact on future occupational opportunities, the possibility of harm to the good eye, and the importance of protective eye wear and regular monitoring of the patient's condition.

Sep 30th, 2016 - The survival rate for the majority of patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) is favorable, however, the rates of recurrence and progression to muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) are important surrogate endpoints for overall prognosis, as these are major determinants of long-term outcome. The recurrence and progression probability rates depend on several clinical and patholo.
Aug 30th, 2018 - Acute bronchiolitis is common in young children, and some children develop chronic cough after their bronchiolitis. We thus undertook systematic reviews based on key questions (KQs) using the PICO (Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome) format.

Aug 31st, 2018 - The sexual response cycle is conceptualized as a sequential series of psychophysiological states that usually occur in an orderly progression. These phases were characterized by Masters and Johnson as desire, arousal, orgasm, and resolution.
Sep 26th, 2017 - Electrophysiological monitoring techniques allow the assessment of spinal cord sensory pathways (SSEPs), motor pathways (MEPs), and spinal root function (electromyographic potentials). Recording of these parameters after spinal cord injury or during spinal column or spinal cord operative procedures (IOM) has the potential to evaluate the integrity of the sensory and motor pathways and spinal ro.

Nov 30th, 2016 - The “2016 AHA/ACC Clinical Performance and Quality Measures for Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death” Writing Committee (the writing committee) was charged with creating the first comprehensive measure set in this area. In this measure set, the writing committee presents 10 measures that are intended for ambulatory and hospital (inpatient) settings or state/municipal use.
Mar 31st, 2013 - Although pulmonary function testing plays a key role in the diagnosis and management of chronic pulmonary conditions in children under 6 years of age, objective physiologic assessment is limited in the clinical care of infants and children less than 6 years old, due to the challenges of measuring lung function in this age range. Ongoing research in lung function testing in infants, toddlers, an.

Nov 30th, 2014 - Quality has been a key focus for gastroenterology, driven by a common desire to promote best practices among gastroenterologists and to foster evidence-based care for our patients. The movement to define and then measure aspects of quality for endoscopy was sparked by public demand arising from alarming reports about medical errors.
Dec 31st, 2017 - We performed systematic reviews using the population, intervention, comparison, outcome (PICO) format to answer the following key clinical question: Are the CHEST 2006 classifications of acute, subacute and chronic cough and associated management algorithms in adults that were based on durations of cough useful? Although the quality of evidence was low, the published literature since 2006 sugge.
