of nitrous oxide and oxygen (to prevent hypoxaemia) that is inhaled. It has a rapid onset (30secs) and short duration of action (1 min). Thought to act by binding to opiate receptors in the CNS. Uses: Sedation, anxiolysis and minor analgesic properties. Administration: Inhaled but requires patient to be able to hold the inhaler, does not require venous access. Side effects: Requires a well ventilated room to prevent exposure of clinician, can cause vomiting, contraindicated in head injury, pneumothorax (...) , bowel obstruction, sinus disease. Propofol: Properties: Phenol derivative, highly lipophilic, crosses blood brain barrier rapidly. Action thought to be through positive modulation of GABA inhibitory neurotransmission. Used widely for induction and maintenance of anaesthesia. Uses: Sedation and amnesia. Administration: Much smaller doses are required for sedation than for general anaesthesia, with initial doses as low as 10 mg in the elderly or those with significant co-morbidities although

Taken together, these two studies show initial neurological involvement, especially in mild COVID-19 cases, is rare, but that neurological involvement can occur in more severe cases later in the disease course. Epilepsy and seizures are an uncommon complication of COVID-19.

Potential concerns for SARS-CoV-2 CNS infection Despite findings from early studies, there is great heterogeneity of neurological presentation for individual patients with viral illnesses, so a minority of COVID-19 patients may present with neurological signs and symptoms.

; conversely, not meeting this goal represents a preventable harm in that potential survivors of OHCA are lost. Public Health Implications of T-CPR Early lay rescuer CPR is associated, on average, with an ≈2-fold increase in the chances of survival after OHCA. Collectively, lay rescuer CPR can increase heart resuscitation and brain recovery and thus is associated with positive functional survival, better long-term prognosis, and favorable cost-effectiveness. Yet, fewer than half of patients who have (...) to be in cardiac arrest will ultimately receive CPR. Although rib fractures and sternal fractures have been observed in as many as 30% and 15%, respectively, of individuals experiencing cardiac arrest after prolonged CPR according to autopsy, no such adverse events were reported in individuals not experiencing cardiac arrest who received lay rescuer CPR. , Life-threatening injuries potentially resulting from chest compressions are extremely rare and are present in <0.5% of OHCAs.

but did not reduce rates of uterine perforation during operative hysteroscopy . Major bleeding, suspicion of visceral injury, or perforation by an electrosurgical electrode may warrant immediate surgical intervention. Infection Antibiotic prophylaxis is not recommended for routine hysteroscopic procedures. Hysteroscopy is contraindicated during an active pelvic infection and in women with prodromal or active herpes infection. Infectious complications related to hysteroscopic procedures are uncommon (...) postoperative infection after diagnostic hysteroscopy or operative hysteroscopy . Electrosurgical Injury Serious injury by electrosurgical electrodes can occur during operative hysteroscopic procedures, typically in the setting of uterine perforation. Exploratory surgery may be indicated if clinically significant bleeding arises or if there is suspicion of thermal damage to visceral structures. Lower genital tract structures (eg, vagina or perineum) also may be at risk for thermal injury. Potential risk
