122. Recommendations for the Management of Cerebral and Cerebellar Infarction with Swelling

Cerebellar Stroke Cerebellar infarction can be difficult to diagnose, especially when the chief complaints are dizziness, vertigo, and vomit- ing. Careful attention to speech, gait, coordination, and eye movements is required to make the diagnosis. It is a common pitfall to miss truncal ataxia in a patient during a bedside exam- ination. 48 Few, if any, reliable clinical signs and symptoms can serve to stratify cerebellar stroke patients across a continuum of clinical severity. Swelling after cerebellar

, is organic food really better, is it wise for the Catholic Church to campaign against condoms, and are exams really getting easier? We see a thinktank report on maths, promoted by a TV maths professor, that gets its own maths catastrophically wrong, and a select committee misleading, and being misled. After all this carping, in a report for the Department For Education I set out how the teaching profession could have its own evidence-based practice revolution to mirror what we’ve seen in medicine (...) in orchestras, how people can turn their back on all of science when some evidence challenges just one of their prejudices, how people win more in a simple game when they’re told they’ve got a lucky ball, how responding to a smear can reinforce it, how smokers are misled by cigarette packaging, how people can convince themselves that patients in comas are communicating, and how negative beliefs can make people experience horrible side effects, even when they’re only taking sugar pills with no medicine

129. The FDA-approved concussion blood test isn’t ready for prime time

, the diagnosis of a concussion is a timely, complicated task, taking into account both subjective historical elements and objective findings from the physical exam. The idea that a blood test could diagnose a concussion would be a game-changer. Unfortunately, after reading the release and the corresponding studies, we have yet to reach the goal line. The blood test released by San Diego based biotechnology company Banyan Biomarkers looks for serum levels of UCH-L1 (ubiquitin carboxy-terminal hydrolase L1 (...) from a CT scan to patients. Subjects were considered to have a mild Traumatic Brain Injury (not clear if this is how they define concussion since the patients were not followed) if they had an initial Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) > 13 and met one or more of the following criteria: loss of consciousness (LOC), posttraumatic amnesia, or confusion. Since only 10% of concussions experience a LOC, this disregards a lot of people. And I would submit, if someone came to the ED with any of these criteria

by a recovery phase with subsequent delayed clinical decline. Patient 1 suffered hypoxia from drug-induced respiratory depression and lack of post-operative positive airway pressure (PAP) support. Her neurological exam on follow-up revealed progressive cognitive decline. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain showed bilateral white matter changes involving the centrum semiovale. Patient 2 developed a generalized tonic-clonic seizure during an endobronchial biopsy procedure and was found to have multiple air (...) emboli on computed tomography (CT) head scan. She was initially in a drug-induced coma for her seizures. Electroencephalography (EEG) on day 14 of admission showed changes consistent with diffuse encephalopathy. MRI brain showed bilateral white matter changes particularly at the watershed zones and in the centrum semiovale. DPHL is a rare and under-recognized clinical entity that requires clinical suspicion and detailed evaluation for diagnosis. Neuroimaging studies can provide prognostic information

Absence of cognitive symptoms in a 6-year-old male with post-traumatic increased intracranial pressure - A case report Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) can range from mild to severe, and may result in increased intracranial pressure (ICP). Increased ICP causes hallmark physical signs, such as diaphoresis, emesis, fixed pupils, and altered mental status. Monitoring the patient's score on the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) and cranial CT scans are routine measures used in clinical practice to monitor (...) the development of a TBI.A 6-year-old male fell off his father's shoulders and subsequently presented to ED for suspected head trauma. He was transferred to our Level 1 Trauma Center after a head CT scan demonstrated a subdural hematoma. His GCS score remained 15. The next day he began to have episodes of apnea and desaturation. Further imaging indicated expansion of the hematoma with a 5mm midline shift. He remained consistently alert and a neurological exam revealed cranial nerves to be grossly intact
