Peer Respites: A Research and Practice Agenda.
Authors: Ostrow L, Croft B Abstract Peer respites are voluntary, short-term residential programs designed to support individuals experiencing or at risk of a psychiatric crisis. These programs posit that for many mental health services users, traditional psychiatric emergency department and inpatient hospital services are undesirable and avoidable when less coercive or intrusive community-based supports are available. Intended to provide a safe and homelike environment, peer respites are usually situated in residential neighborhoods. These programs are starting to spread across the United States, yet there is very ...

Impact of the 2nd Story Peer Respite Program on Use of Inpatient and Emergency Services.
Conclusions: By reducing the need for inpatient and emergency services for some individuals, peer respites may increase meaningful choices for recovery and decrease the behavioral health system's reliance on costly, coercive, and less person-centered modes of service delivery.

Letters, green cards, telephone calls and postcards: systematic and meta-analytic review of brief contact interventions for reducing self-harm, suicide attempts and suicide.
Conclusions A non-significant positive effect on repeated self-harm, suicide attempt and suicide and a significant effect on the number of episodes of repeated self-harm or suicide attempts per person (based on only three studies) means that brief contact interventions cannot yet be recommended for widespread clinical implementation. We recommend further assessment of possible benefits in well-designed trials in clinical populations.

Pedicled pericardial patch tracheoplasty as a last-resort repair for acquired and recurrent long-segment tracheal stenosis through resternotomy without CPB
Abstract Long-segment stenotic tracheal rings represent a rare but life-threatening cause of respiratory distress. Surgery may be required in an emergency setting, using established techniques and repair materials. In an adult with long-segment tracheal stenosis whose extent was underestimated by conventional diagnostic workup, standard repair materials were unavailable in emergency setting. This case report illustrates a usual surgical technique in a bail out situation, using autologous Pericardium to patch a large tracheal defect. Although several techniques have been described for the treatment of tracheal sten...

DEGRO/DGK guideline for radiotherapy in patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices
Abstract An increasing number of patients undergoing radiotherapy (RT) have cardiac implantable electronic devices [CIEDs, cardiac pacemakers (PMs) and implanted cardioverters/defibrillators (ICDs)]. Ionizing radiation can cause latent and permanent damage to CIEDs, which may result in loss of function in patients with asystole or ventricular fibrillation. Reviewing the current literature, the interdisciplinary German guideline (DEGRO/DGK) was developed reflecting patient risk according to type of CIED, cardiac condition, and estimated radiation dose to the CIED. Planning for RT should consider the CIED specifica...

Changing prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection and peptic ulcer among dyspeptic Sardinian patients
Abstract Over the past 50 years, the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection has fallen as standards of living improved. The changes in the prevalence of infection and its manifestations (peptic ulcer disease and gastric mucosal lesions) were investigated in a large cohort of Sardinians undergoing upper endoscopy for dyspepsia. A retrospective observational study was conducted involving patients undergoing endoscopy for dyspepsia from 1995 to 2013. H. pylori status was assessed by histology plus the rapid urease test or 13C-UBT. Gastric mucosal lesions were evaluated histologically. Data including non-steroid...

8 Ways to Combat Decision Fatigue
It's a fact that decision fatigue can lead to analysis paralysis and overwhelm our daily lives. On the one hand, choices give us freedom and allow us to see the possibilities, especially for the important things in life. The downside is we are constantly bombarded with tiny decisions throughout the day, like what to eat, what to wear or whether or not to respond to this email now. This could be particularly overwhelming and prevent us from being present enough to do our best work and live our best lives. It's no wonder by night time all we want to do is veg in front of the TV with a bag of chips. Our brains are filled to ...

Will the Supreme Court send Obamacare into a death spiral?
The Supreme Court heard arguments this morning in a case that could threaten the viability of the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature health care law. The law, also known as Obamacare, survived a previous Supreme Court challenge in 2012. But this new one has many people worried, and rightfully so. At issue in the case are the financial subsidies provided to millions of Americans to buy health insurance through the insurance marketplaces, called exchanges. Without these subsidies, many people of lower income would not be able to afford coverage. Stopping these subsidies would put a big dent in the “...

Emergency department orthopedics observation unit as an alternative to admission.
CONCLUSIONS: An OOU prevented 138 of 199 (69%) patients from being admitted to a hospital. There were no significant predictors of which patients would require admission. Pain was not a predictor of need for admission. The lack of significant predictors is important in suggesting that without the ability to predict which patients require admission, a system using an OOU can reduce admissions by more than two-thirds.

Relatively High Prevalence of Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy (Stress-Induced Cardiomyopathy) in the Japanese Population—Contribution of Cardiac Imaging in the Identification of Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy and its Differentiation from Acute Coronary Syndrome
Abstract Apical ballooning syndrome, the so-called takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC), is characterized by wall-motion abnormality. The wall-motion abnormality includes hypokinesis in the mid and apical segments of the left ventricle (LV) with hyperkinesis in the mid LV segment. The LV dysfunction is reversible. TTC has been reportedly been found in 1 to 2 % of patients suspected of having acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Although the wall-motion abnormality of TTC is a significant feature, clinical presentation involving chest pain or ECG abnormalities is similar to that for ACS. Therefore, the diagnosis of TTC is st...

Cardiogenic shock: how to overcome a clinical dilemma. Unmet needs in Emergency Medicine
Critical cardiogenic shock patients experience an ominous prognosis [1]. In spite of the multiple pharmacological chances, the in-hospital mortality rate is still very high (around 60% of patients) [2]. The poorest results are achieved in patients with refractory cardiogenic shock, who are currently graded as Interagency Registry for Mechanical Assisted Circulatory Support (INTERMACS) Level I or ‘crash and burn’ patients [3]. However, although the worst clinical outcome, according to the downshifting risk concept [4], these patients have the most to gain in terms of absolute benefits throughout a rapid escalation of al...

Explaining and responding to the Ebola epidemic
The Ebola epidemic in West Africa is not merely a biomedical problem that can be seen in isolation and dealt with only through emergency medical rescue processes. The ethical dilemmas surfaced by this epidemic are also not confined to the usual micro-ethical problems associated with medical care and medical research. The pandemic, as one of many manifestations of failed human and social development that has brought the world to a dangerous ‘tipping point, requires deep introspection and action to address upstream causal processes.
