1845. Measurement of Glomerular Filtration Rate using Plasma Sampling

. Exercise has been shown to have a variable effect on GFR (Merrill et al, 1948, Kachadorian et al, 1970, Wilkinson et al, 1991). Strict bed rest is unnecessary, but some restriction of activity is necessary for good reproducibility. Some drugs can reduce renal function e.g. diuretics (frusemide), aminoglycoside antibiotics, penicillins, sulphonamides and aluminium (Blathen et al, 1978) and therefore all medications being taken should be recorded prior to the study being performed. Patient details should

attempts – 10 or 14 days treatment may have a higher chance of success. However, the risk of adverse effects increases • After two failed eradication attempts, current guidelines advocate antimicrobial sensitivity testing. Culture should be performed in specialised laboratories, as the procedure is technically demanding. Several studies have shown that higher eradication rates are obtained when antibiotics are chosen based on susceptibility testing, and this seems to be a cost effective approach • T (...) based therapy, bismuth based quadruple therapy is the favoured second line therapy. Preparing the patient for possible side effects is important as poor compliance and antibiotic resistance are the main reasons for eradication failure. helicobacter pylori The latest in diagnosis and treatment Barry marshall FRACP , FAA, FRS, Nobel Laureate, is Clinical Professor of Microbiology, The University of Western Australia.

to toxins or direct invasion. Water within the ear can precipitate an acute infection of the cholesteatoma and results in otorrhea. In any patient with otitis media that fails to settle with appropriate antibiotic treatment, a cholesteatoma should be suspected. A cholesteatoma is rarely associated with pain. Pain however reflects extensive disease with the possibility of intracranial invasion and dural irritation. 7 Vertigo is also associated with an extensive cholesteatoma and requires urgent attention (...) nerve. Antibiotic-steroid eardrops can be instilled on a daily basis over 1 week to treat any polyp occluding the ear canal and obstructing the view of the underlying tympanic membrane. If a cholesteatoma is suspected the patient’s facial nerve should be examined. The patient should also be examined for dizziness using the fistula test. A fistula test involves applying positive pressure to the affected ear. It can be performed by placing a finger to the external auditory meatus and creating

If the object is present it should be left in situ as its removal may cause further herniation of the eye contents. Topical anaesthetic and antibiotics can be given to aid comfort and reduce the risk of infection.

Antiviral medication has not been shown to be of any benefit. 13 In patients with suppurative labyrinthitis, usually following a bacterial otitis media infection, hospitalisation with intravenous antibiotic treatment is required. Early mobilisation as tolerated in a safe environment will encourage the brainstem compensatory mechanism.
