Reducing catheter-associated urinary tract infections through best practice: Sherwood Forest Hospitals' experience.
A programme to standardise catheterisation practice was introduced in Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Trust in 2016, with the aim of reducing the incidence of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs). The ...
Down the drain and back up a drain
In this issue the paper by Aranega-Bou et al provides one more piece to the jigsaw of our understanding on drains and spread of organisms .
Non Invasive Ventilation: Case Study
(British Thoracic Society, 2019-02-18)
The Acute Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV) team at King's Mill Hospital have been asked to collaborate with the British Thoracic Society (BTS) on a case study to share the results of our quality improvement transformation ...
Surgical lung biopsy for interstitial lung disease: when considered necessary, should these be done in larger and experienced centres only?
Surgical lung biopsy for ILD: higher volume centres may offer lower mortality, but data are only suggestive – we need more research, including into lower risk alternatives to conventional biopsy, to reduce risk for patients ...
Discrete Trajectories of Resolving and Persistent Pain in People With Rheumatoid Arthritis Despite Undergoing Treatment for Inflammation: Results From Three UK Cohorts.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an example of human chronic inflammatory pain. Modern treatments suppress inflammation, yet pain remains a major problem for many people with RA. We hypothesized that discrete RA subgroups might ...
Associations of symptomatic knee OA with histopathologic features in subchondral bone.
OBJECTIVES: Subchondral bone and the osteochondral junction are thought to contribute to osteoarthritis (OA) knee pain. We aimed to identify osteochondral pathologies specifically associated with symptomatic human knee OA. ...
The polyadenylation inhibitor cordycepin reduces pain, inflammation and joint pathology in rodent models of osteoarthritis.
Clinically, osteoarthritis (OA) pain is significantly associated with synovial inflammation. Identification of the mechanisms driving inflammation could reveal new targets to relieve this prevalent pain state. Herein, a ...
Trajectories of pain predict disabilities affecting daily living in arthritis.
PURPOSE: To examine the interplay between pain and disability in arthritis when adjusting for patient heterogeneity in pain progression. There is consistent evidence to suggest that people experience osteoarthritis ...
The impact of anxiety on chronic musculoskeletal pain and the role of astrocyte activation.
Anxiety and depression are associated with increased pain responses in chronic pain states. The extent to which anxiety drives chronic pain, or vice versa, remains an important question that has implications for analgesic ...
Molecular expression patterns in the synovium and their association with advanced symptomatic knee osteoarthritis.
OBJECTIVE: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a major source of knee pain. Mechanisms of OA knee pain are incompletely understood but include synovial pathology. We aimed to identify molecular expression patterns in the synovium ...
