1841. WEO/WGO Guidelines on endoscope disinfection: a resource-sensitive approach

by covering the detergent container. 2.3 Detergents Detergents with or without enzymes, and detergents containing antimicrobial substances, can be used for endoscope cleaning. Use of nonfoaming detergents is recommended. Foaming can inhibit good fluid contact with device surfaces and prevent a clear field of vision during the cleaning process, with a risk of injury to personnel. The detergent selected should effectively loosen organic and nonorganic material so that the flushing action of the detergent (...) growth. • In Europe, detergents commonly used may contain antimicrobial substances that reduce the risk of infection to reprocessing personnel, but they do not replace disinfection. • Enzymes generally function more effectively above room temperature (> 20– 22 °C) and should be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. 3 Endoscope disinfection 3.1 General procedures Endoscopes should be disinfected in dedicated rooms by trained staff at the beginning and at the end of each patient

A retrospective observational study of 287,213 singleton pregnancies reported an aOR of 2.24 (99% CI 1.91–2.64) for wound infection in obese women compared with healthy- weight women. 10 Evidence level 2++ In the general maternity population, a systematic review of randomised trials in women undergoing elective or non-elective caesarean sections showed that the incidence of wound infections was significantly reduced with antibiotic prophylaxis compared with no prophylaxis. 60 The RR of infection for elective

The approach to antibiotic endocarditis prophylaxis has changed for several reasons. In short, transient bacteraemia occurs not only after dental procedures but frequently in the context of daily routine activities such as tooth brushing, ?ossing, or chewing. Due to the lack of scienti?c evidence for the ef?cacy of antibiotic prophylaxis (...) , the estimated huge number of patients that may need to be treated to prevent one single case of IE, the small but existing risk of anaphylaxis, and the general problem of emergence of resistant microorganisms resulting from widespread, often inap- propriate use of antibiotics, it is currently recommended by expert consensus to limit antibiotic prophylaxis to patients with the highest risk of IE undergoing the highest risk procedures (IIaC). This recommendation includes the following patient groups

for children who have either two or more episodes of chronic (> 4 weeks) wet cough per year that respond to antibiotics, or chest radiographic abnormalities persisting for at least 6 weeks after appropriate therapy. Intensive treatment seeks to improve symptom control, reduce frequency of acute pulmonary exacerbations, preserve lung function, and maintain a good quality of life. Antibiotic selection for acute infective episodes is based on results of lower airway culture, local antibiotic susceptibility (...) patterns, clinical severity and patient tolerance. Patients whose condition does not respond promptly or adequately to oral antibiotics are hospitalised for more intensive treatments, including intravenous antibiotics. Ongoing treatment requires regular and coordinated primary health care and specialist review, including monitoring for complications and comorbidities.

Type of analgesia Adequate analgesia should be administered before and immediately after surgery. Three-in-one femoral nerve block is an effective method of providing analgesia to patients with hip fracture in the emergency department (A), and is useful for reducing postoperative pain (A).

The diagnosis can only be definitive when patients become asymptomatic with treatment.

Allergy assessment can be helpful if there is associated allergic rhinitis. Management is according to current evidence-based guidelines and involves nasal saline irrigation, intranasal corticosteroid therapy for a minimum trial of 1 month, and oral antibiotic therapy for 3 weeks to 3 months for purulent chronic rhinosinusitis. Short-course prednisone treatment can be added for associated nasal polyposis (GRADE: strong). Obstructive sleep apnoea Obstructive
