Harrison's Internal Medicine Chapter 56. Cutaneous Drug Reactions
CUTANEOUS DRUG REACTIONS: INTRODUCTION
Cutaneous reactions are among the most frequent adverse reactions to drugs. Every physician will see patients suffering from them. Most are benign, but a few can be life-threatening. Prompt recognition of severe reactions, drug withdrawal, and appropriate therapeutic interventions can minimize toxicity.
New Zealand has a highly integrated, closed system of poultry production, with all
poultry meat available for retail sale being of domestic origin. Processors of chicken meat
control most aspects of production, processing, and distribution; 3 processing companies supply
90% of chicken meat consumed in New Zealand, representing 95% of all poultry meat
consumed (2). As a result, interventions applied to the local poultry industry affect all
domestically consumed poultry.
A marked decline in campylobacteriosis notifications was observed during 2007 and
The perfect cardiac catheterization technique, including good diagnostic and therapeutic
qualities, without risk and with no recovery time for the patient, does not exist. Obtaining
initial access to the arterial circulation is the first and most frequent catheterization difficulty
encountered by the interventional cardiologist during the procedure. Often, it is also the
only difficult part of the exam for the patient because it may cause a vagal reaction or
Numerous studies have compared the outcomes of two competing interventions for
multivessel coronary artery disease: coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) and
coronary stenting. However, little information has become available since the introduction
of drug-eluting stents.
This popular core nursing pharmacology textbook provides unique coverage of nursing interventions for drug therapy with related rationales. Highly praised for its organized and readable presentation, the text explains the "why" behind each nursing action and emphasizes how drugs work differently in different patients.
At the end of the session, participants should be able to: understand the complexity of drugs and classification of the drugs, define the society and understand the relation between drugs and society, understand the various interventions that can be used to mediate the impact of drugs on society.
The last quarter of a century has seen dramatic
developments in the management of cardiovascular
diseases. Besides the pioneering developments in
the medical management of cardiovascular disorders
the field of interventional cardiology has also emerged
as a major discipline with a huge impact on the
clinical management of acute coronary syndrome,
chronic coronary artery disease, congestive heart
failure, and peripheral vascular and valvular diseases.
From 1999–2003, FRONTIERS implemented a Global Agenda program of operations research
(OR) projects to address the reproductive health (RH) needs of adolescents in four countries—
Bangladesh, Kenya, Mexico, and Senegal. The project was implemented in urban areas of Saint-
Louis and Louga, in northwestern Senegal, and was called Improving the Reproductive Health of
Youth in Senegal.
Health insurance makes a difference in whether and when people get necessary medical care, where they
get their care, and ultimately, how healthy people are. Uninsured adults are far more likely than the insured
to postpone or forgo health care altogether and less able to afford prescription drugs or follow through with
recommended treatments. Problems getting needed care are less common among children, who are
generally healthy, but disparities in access to care between uninsured and insured children are as great as
the adult differences.
Mini-grants of up to $5000 were awarded to Kentucky,
Michigan and Rhode Island, to meet the objectives
of the 2007-2008 mini-grant program, including 1 )
the formation of a state team comprised of state MCH,
Planned Parenthood and ACOG representatives who
would lead an effort to increase the use of the state
Quitline, and 2) the development of an action plan
to accomplish the goal of increasing use of the state
Alternative medicine is recognized as medical products and practices that do not belong to
the standard cares taken by medical doctors, doctors of osteopathy and allied health professionals.
Alternative medicine includes the mind-body interventions (i.e., meditation, yoga,
acupuncture, deep-breathing exercises, guided imageryAny of various techniques (such as a
series of verbal suggestions) used to guide another person or oneself in imagining sensations—
especially in visualizing an image in the mind—to bring about a desired physical response
(such as stress reduction).
Doctors are obviously not undiscerning recipients of advertising and other forms of promotion. Smith (2003) says “Your opinion may not be bought, but it seems rude to say critical things about people who have hosted you so well.” He goes on to say that the easy dichotomy of pharmaceutical giants as villains and doctors as innocent victims is over-simplifying the situation. Clearly doctors need to use drugs in order to deliver their services, and it is also reasonable that firms should be allowed to promote their products.
Addiction and recovery have been topics of Hollywood films
and movies of the week and are increasingly integrated into
mainstream television shows through the inclusion of addicted
characters. Now the producers of reality shows have entered
the field with the new American television show Intervention,
on the A&E channel.
The neurons of the corpus striatum receive an excitatory input from the cerebral cortex and the thalamus.
The major outputs project to the globus pallidus and the substantia nigra pars reticula (SNr), and use
gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) as a transmitter. Major efferent pathways from the globus pallidus
interna and the SNr project to the thalamus. Feedback to the striatum is through the dopaminergic
striatonigral pathway originating in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc; Figure 1).
These separate pathways utilize different neuropeptides and dopamine receptors.
