Care in specialized intensive care units (ICUs) is generally of higher quality than in general care units. Neurocritical care focuses on the care of critically ill patients with primary or secondary neurosurgical and neurological problems and was initially developed to manage postoperative neurosurgical

Nurse educators always have a dual role—they are both nurses and educators. As nurses
they often have a specialty, such as psychiatric nursing or nephrology nursing, and they
need to keep up with developments in that specialty, both in terms of the literature and
the practice. When such nurses become educators, they also have to master the field of
education, and keep up with what is new in the field of education, both in terms of theory
The Group puts forward these recommendations recognising that the project on economic evaluation has
still to produce its final report, and that the Group’s recommendation will be assessed in the light of the
economic evaluation by the Steering Committee. Also, the question of geogenic dust, which plays an
important role in some member states, has not been taken into full account and needs further
consideration by the Commission. Whatever decisions the Commission takes finally on the above values,
the Group recommends that they be reviewed within 5 years after entry into force.
Mercury health effects depend on the type of mercury to which a person is exposed. In general, health
impacts include renal toxicity, damage to the immune system, alteration of genetic and enzyme systems
and neurological damage, especially in babies exposed in utero. Methyl mercury is the most toxic form of
mercury because it is absorbed quickly in the body and expelled much more slowly.
Currently there is not
enough human exposure data to make links between mercury and cancer.
This report, one of a series of adoption case studies coordinated by the Impacts Assessment and Evaluation Group (IAEG) of
the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), examines the adoption by Ghanaian maize farmers
of improved production technologies developed through the Ghana Grains Development Project (GGDP).
When we began working in pediatric neurosurgery as advanced practice
nurses, we searched for a reference that would explain the different neurosurgical
conditions affecting our patients and teach us how to care for
them. There was nothing to be found. We asked our colleagues for a reference
and they, too, had found none. “Someone should write a book about
how to care for pediatric neurosurgery patients,” we all said each time we
met at the AANS pediatric neurosurgery section meeting.
Finally, it dawned on us. We were the someone.

Abstract Although gait change is considered a useful indicator of severity in animal models of Parkinson's disease, systematic and extensive gait analysis in animal models of neurological deficits is not well established. The CatWalk-assisted automated gait analysis system provides a comprehensive way to assess a number of dynamic and static gait parameters simultaneously. In this study, we used the Catwalk system to investigate changes in gait parameters in adult rats with unilateral 6-OHDA-induced lesions and the...
(BQ) Ebook 100 Cases in Clinical Medicine is an indispensable revision tool for medical students preparing for clinical examinations or OSCEs. Using scenarios which mimic daily life, the cases will interest students in clinical problems and help them develop their clinical reasoning skills, with each case presenting details of a patient's medical history and the key findings of a clinical examination, together with initial investigation results for evaluation.
The general physical examination in a delirious patient should include a careful screening for signs of infection such as fever, tachypnea, pulmonary consolidation, heart murmur, or stiff neck. The patient's fluid status should be assessed; both dehydration and fluid overload with resultant hypoxia have been associated with delirium, and each is usually easily rectified. The appearance of the skin can be helpful, showing jaundice in hepatic encephalopathy, cyanosis in hypoxia, or needle tracks in patients using intravenous drugs.
Neurologic Evaluation Peripheral sensory neuropathy is the major risk factor for diabetic foot ulceration (24, 26, 27, 46, 50). The patient history and physical examination utilizing the 5.07 SemmesWeinstein monofilament (10-g) wire are sufficient to identify individuals at risk for ulceration (26, 232-235). Vibration perception threshold assessment with the biothesiometer is also useful in identifying patients at high risk for ulceration (44, 57, 236). More sophisticated studies such as nerve conduction studies are rarely necessary to diagnose peripheral sensory neuropathy.
Excessive daytime sleepiness is often result of self-imposed sleep deprivation espetially in
young people. More often it is effect of disturbed nocturnal sleep or misaligned circadian
rhytms. It may be side effect of many often-used drugs, for example hypnotics or alcohol.
Nocturnal sleep disturbances, which lead to EDS, should be carefully assessed and treated.
In several conditions EDS is not an outcome of night-sleep loss and should be considered as
primary hypersomnia of central origin.

As part of the project we follow an ascertainment protocol which involves several
measures and procedures. Parents or guardians must complete an informed consent form
with the help of a psychologist or social worker. Subsequently, parents are interviewed using
the Vineland Behavior Adaptive Scales, a structured interview about adaptive behavior
