reconstructions) followed by a complete NDD assessment. Both CT-perfusion and the clinical exam will be performed by independent assessors blinded from each others' interpretation. The primary endpoints will be the sensitivity and specificity of CT-perfusion to confirm NDD. Safety endpoints will be CT-perfusion -related adverse events (i.e. contrast-induced kidney injury, new hemodynamic instability while undergoing CT-perfusion). The true negative, true positive, false negative and false positive for CT (...)

. On admission, patient was soporous without signs of peritonitis and meningitis. Patient's peritoneal effluent was clear, with normal leukocytes. Cranial CT scan showed no abnormalities. Laboratory exams revealed positive inflammatory syndrome. Despite antibiotic therapy, next day, symptoms aggravated with coma development. Peritoneal effluent became cloudy and its leukocyte count rose up. Effluent microscopy revealed Gram-positive bacilli. Patient was started with intraperitoneal Vancomycin and Amikacin

with a large IVH burden and poor exam.We present a patient with significant IVH and minimal ICH who deteriorated rapidly to coma after presentation. Despite this exam, an initially non-functioning diversion of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and temporary halt of further attempts of CSF diversion in the setting of an early "do not resuscitate order," our patient gradually improved and, with supportive ICU care and rehabilitation, was able to communicate and ambulate with assistance at 12 weeks.Patients with ICH (...) Intracerebral Hemorrhage with Intraventricular Extension—Getting the Prognosis Right Early Early accurate outcome prognostication for patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and accompanying intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) is often challenging (1). Acute hydrocephalus often contributes to a poor clinical exam (2) and can portend significant morbidity and mortality (3). Accordingly, the inpatient neurologist may feel inclined to recommend limitations of care for an ICH patient admitted

healthcare has become the priority while men’s healthcare has not been given much attention. I’d like to explore another reason why some men are dying at a younger age. The reason more men would rather let nature take its course than seek out medical care is due to the lack of Choice, Privacy, and Respect (CPR), afforded men by our medical system. This is especially true when gender specific intimate exams, tests, or procedures come into play. Same gender caregivers are a subject whose time has come (...) givers for an intimate exam, test, and/or procedure will raise his anxiety level through the roof. The medical community’s answer to that is to just say “too bad, it is what it is”. End part 2 NTT At , said... Good Afternoon: Part 3 So, what can be done to alleviate the unnecessary confrontations between male patients and female healthcare workers when male specific intimate issues are in play?

testing if deemed appropriate. These criteria for declaring death are more stringent than for patients who have not designated themselves as potential donors. Furthermore, unlike coma, in which limited brain function is still intact and the patient may eventually “wake up,” there have been no documented cases of revival after brain death. Will my organs be given to alcoholics or drug abusers? Although potential donors cannot specify the race, sex, age, or religious affiliation of their potential (...) will be what we recommend or what we would do ourselves (donating organs to help another person, signing a DNR order, consenting to a biopsy) but sometimes it will not. Lastly, while the current guidelines for determining brain death are for 2 examinations by qualified providers spaced at least 6 hours apart, there is literature and movement to support changing this protocol to 1 examination.
