101. Staphylococcus aureus colonisation in patients from a primary regional hospital (PubMed)

revealed differences in the resistance of methicillin-sensitive, MRSA and MORSA strains. On the whole, our study demonstrates the pattern of distribution of nasal and pharyngeal colonisation with SA, MRSA and MORSA in adults vs. children, inpatients vs. outpatients, ICU patients vs. non‑ICU patients, and females vs. males, which can be used for adjusting the screening and decontamination protocols in a hospital. SA is a pervasive pathogen with constantly changing trends in resistance and epidemiology

102. Emergency Management of a Victim who has Been Poisoned

. Speed of effect is determined by the nature of the poison, its concentration, and the time of exposure. ? It is important to seek medical assessment or advice after significant exposure to a poison, even if symptoms are initially mild or absent. MANAGEMENT The principles of managing a patient who has been poisoned are: ? Prevention of poisoning of the rescuer. ? Decontamination of the patient. ? Resuscitation and supportive care, using the Australian Resuscitation Council and New Zealand (...) . ? If more than one person simultaneously appears affected by a poison, there is a high possibility of dangerous environmental contamination. ? The rescuer may need to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) during decontamination and resuscitation. The need for PPE will be guided by knowledge of the likely poison. If equipment is not available to safely decontaminate and treat a victim, rescue may not be possible. [Class A; LOE Expert Consensus Opinion ] 2. Decontamination ? Separate the victim from

M. tuberculosis is resistant to cold (remaining viable for weeks at 4°C) but susceptible to heat, sunlight, UV light and X-rays. Slow- growing, with generation times ranging from 13 to 20 hours, M. tuberculosis is preferential aerobic, and its growth rate is highly affected by oxygen con- centrations. M. tuberculosis replicates rapidly in cavitary lesions of lung pa- renchyma where oxygen concentration is high

the foundation for professional and service development to address inequities in provision of oral care. Data available on oral health status for children and adults with a learning disability relates mainly to specific groups. However, the overall picture is one of poor periodontal health and a greater than normal unmet need of treatment for children and adults (Shaw et al., 1986, Nunn and Murray, 1987 , Hinchliffe et al., 1988, Thornton et al., 1989, Shaw et al., 1990, Francis et al., 1991, Kendall, 1991 (...) to general well being” (Oral Health Strategy Group, 1994). The term ‘oral health’ includes dental health and will be used throughout this document. Prevalence of Learning Disability It is estimated that there are 1.2 million people with a mild to moderate learning disability living in the UK and approximately 210,000 with a severe or profound disability (Valuing people 2001). More males than females are affected, with about one quarter being children aged under 16. Approximately a quarter of the total
