Experiences of health care providers with integrated HIV and reproductive health services in Kenya: a qualitative study
Conclusions: The success of integration primarily depends on the performance of service providers which, in turn, depends on a whole range of facilitative organisational factors. The central Ministry of Health should create a coherent policy environment, spearhead strategic planning and ensure availability of resources for implementation at lower levels of the health system. Health facility staffing norms, technical support, cost-sharing policies, clinical reporting procedures, salary and incentive schemes, clinical supply chains, and resourcing of health facility physical space upgrades, all need attention. Yet, despite t...

Commentary: Why we should report results from clinical trial pilot studies
Should clinical trial pilot studies be reported? Thebane, Ma, Chu, et al. argue in their discussion of the conduct of pilot studies, that they should be published.1 Others, such as the editorialist for The Diabetes Educator, take a more cautious approach to publishing pilot studies.2 I agree with those who advocate publication. I might also note that an April 9, 2012 search of "randomized clinical trial pilot studies" in PubMed contained almost 10,000 citations. Although some of these may not reflect individual pilot studies, there may, though, be many more (without "randomized" in the search term, the number is over 20,000).

Novel biaxial tensile test for studying aortic failure phenomena at a microscopic level
Background: An aortic aneurysm is a local dilation of the aorta, which tends to expand and often results in a fatal rupture. Although larger aneurysms have a greater risk of rupture, some small aneurysms also rupture. Since the mechanism of aortic rupture is not well understood, clarification of the microstructure influencing the failure to rupture is important. Since aortic tissues are stretched biaxially in vivo, we developed a technique to microscopically observe the failure of an aortic rupture during biaxial stretch. Methods: A thinly sliced porcine thoracic aortic specimen was adhered to a circular frame and pushed o...

Major depression epidemiology from a diathesis-stress conceptualization
Conclusions: A diathesis-stress conceptualization coupled with application of a threshold-based diagnostic definition may explain several of the apparent complexities of major depression epidemiology. Some of these complexities may be artifacts of the nominal diagnostic approach. These observations should encourage an empirical exploration of whether diathesis-stress interactions provide a more parsimonious framework for understanding depression than current approaches.

Imputing forest carbon stock estimates from inventory plots to a nationally continuous coverage
The U.S. has been providing national-scale estimates of forest carbon (C) stocks and stock change to meet United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) reporting requirements for years. Although these currently are provided as national estimates by pool and year to meet greenhouse gas monitoring requirements, there is growing need to disaggregate these estimates to finer scales to enable strategic forest management and monitoring activities focused on various ecosystem services such as C storage enhancement. Through application of a nearest-neighbor imputation approach, spatially extant estimates of forest...

An expected association between low haemoglobin and poor outcome in severe head injury and an insufficiently detailed multivariate analysis
I read with interest the paper by Sekhon et al, 'Association of hemoglobin concentration in critically ill patients with severe traumatic brain injury' (July edition of Critical Care) . Whilst the conclusion ('mean 7-day hemoglobin concentration < 90g/L associated with increased hospital mortality in patients with severe traumatic brain injury') is striking, it is plausible, if not likely, that both the haemoglobin deficit and the observed mortality are dependent upon the severity of the initial injury, and therefore an association between these two might be expected.Given the lack of transfusion trigger and a target ha...

Reflections on fertility and postponed parenthood-interviews with highly educated women and men without children in Sweden.
Conclusion. Highly educated young women and men in contemporary Sweden have competing priorities when planning and setting goals for their lives, and having children is one of them. They describe fertility as an imperceptible and retrievable capacity and postponed parenthood as a rational adaptation to changes in society. These findings suggest that increased information about the limitations of human reproduction is needed, but also that societal support for younger parents is of utmost importance.

Aboriginal-mainstream partnerships: exploring the challenges and enhancers of a collaborative service arrangement for Aboriginal clients with substance use issues
Conclusion: While the literature strongly advises partnerships be suitably mature before commencing service delivery, the reality of funding cycles may require partnerships become operational before relationships are adequately consolidated. Allowing sufficient time and funding for both the operation and relational aspects of a partnership is critical, with support for partners to regularly meet and workshop arrangements. Documentation that makes clear and embeds working arrangements between partners is important to ameliorate many of the issues that can arise. Given the historical undercurrents, flexible approaches are re...

Development of mental health quality indicators (MHQIs) for inpatient psychiatry based on the interRAI mental health assessment
Conclusions: The RAI-MH is a feasible assessment system for deriving MHQIs. Given the breadth of clinical content on the RAI-MH there is an opportunity to expand the number of MHQIs beyond indicators of depression, cognitive performance, and restraints. Further research is needed to improve risk adjustment of the MHQIs for their use in mental health services report card and benchmarking activities.

Sensitivity and specificity of Norwegian optometrists' evaluation of diabetic retinopathy in single-field retinal images -- a cross-sectional experimental study
Conclusions: The evaluation of retinal images for diabetic retinopathy by Norwegian optometrists does not meet the required screening standard of at least 80 % sensitivity and 95 % specificity. The introduction of measures to improve this situation could have implications for both formal optometric training and continuing optometric professional education.

Oral care and pulmonary infection - the importance of plaque scoring
Improving the quality of oral hygiene is recognised as an important counter measure for reducing the incidence of ventilator associated pneumonia amongst critically ill patients. Toothbrushing physically disrupts the dental plaque that acts as a reservoir for pulmonary infection and therefore has the potential to reduce the incidence of ventilator associated pneumonia. Gu and colleagues performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of oral hygiene with and without a toothbrush and found no difference on the incidence of pneumonia in mechanically ventilated patients. The diagnosis of ventilator associated pneumonia is pro...

Pulmonary Hypertension and Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis-A Dastardly Duo.
Abstract ABSTRACT:: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a well-recognized complication of interstitial lung disease, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). The underlying pathogenesis was initially hypothesized to be inflammatory but now is characterized as an over exuberant fibroproliferative process. The prevalence of PH in the setting of IPF has not been well described in the literature, with a reported occurrence from 32% to 85%. Diagnostically, recognizing underlying PH in the setting of IPF remains challenging because of nonspecific clinical symptoms and unrevealing ancillary testing. A high degree of clin...

Suppression of Primary Aldosteronism and Resistant Hypertension by the Peroxisome Proliferator-activated Receptor Gamma Agonist Pioglitazone.
We report a case of 55-year-old man with primary aldosteronism (PA) whose hyperaldosteronism was suppressed with the PPAR γ agonist pioglitazone. He had drug-resistant hypertension, hypokalemia, and diabetes mellitus. The diagnosis of PA was confirmed by the oral sodium loading test (20.5 μg/d of urinary aldosterone) and Captopril challenge test (19.5 ng/dL of plasma aldosterone). Computed tomography imaging revealed no apparent adrenal mass. The result of the posture stimulation test was consistent with the diagnosis of idiopathic adrenal hyperplasia. On administration of pioglitazone (30 mg/d) and nifedipine (40 mg/d),...

Effectiveness of a Web-Based Cognitive-Behavioral Tool to Improve Mental Well-Being in the General Population: Randomized Controlled Trial
Conclusions: Participants allocated to the intervention arm had an average increase of approximately 3 points on the WEMWBS scale compared to no increase for participants in the control group. Three points on this scale is approximately one-third of a standard deviation. In a low-cost automated intervention designed to shift the population distribution of mental well-being, a small difference per individual could yield a major benefit in population terms. In common with other Web-based interventions, there were high rates of attrition. Further work is needed to improve acceptability, to evaluate against placebo effect, and...

Abstract Vitamin-K antagonists (VKA) are the current standard for oral anticoagulation. However, they carry several problems in older patients: frequent bleeding complications, complex management, risk of interactions with multiple drugs. Two new classes of oral anticoagulants (NOA) are now available: direct thrombin inhibitors (dabigatran); and direct factor Xa inhibitors (rivaroxaban, apixaban) and others. Their management is easier: quickly effective after administration, they are given at fixed doses and do not need regular laboratory monitoring. Several randomized trials have shown that NOA are non-inferior to...
