is to be sized correctly in patients: if the airway is too short it will fail to separate the soft palate from the pharynx and if too long it can pass into the larynx and aggravate cough and gag reflexes ( ). The NPA primarily acts as a 'splint' which maintains patency of the airway, or keeps the tongue from falling back on the posterior pharyngeal wall and occluding the airway, therefore preventing airway obstruction, hypoxia and asphyxia ( ). NPAs are generally well tolerated by conscious children (...) and are used in the management of children with congenital maxillofacial abnormalities, syndromic craniosynotosis, mid-facial hypoplasia or to support the upper airway post trauma or surgery ( ).

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

Bioterrorism: 10 facts about sarin gas Bioterrorism: 10 facts about sarin gas Bioterrorism: 10 facts about sarin gas | | April 8, 2017 90 Shares As the civil war in Syria shows no signs of de-escalating, worrisome evidence points towards the deployment of chemical warfare with banned agents recently, resulting in almost a hundred deaths with more than a quarter of them children. Chlorine and Sarin gas are primarily being implicated. Here are ten facts to know about Sarin gas and how it works. 1 (...) . Sarin is heavier than air and sinks to lower levels over the ground. Children are more susceptible to Sarin because they are closer to the ground, have smaller bodies, faster breathing rates, immature organ systems, and . 5. Sarin gas is more potent than liquid and symptoms appear within seconds of exposure to the gas but may take hours with the liquid form. Since it is odorless, victims are unaware of its presence, just like carbon monoxide. Deaths are mostly due to respiratory failure from

115. Contaminated fingers: a potential cause of Chlamydia trachomatis-positive urine specimens (PubMed)

surrogate specimens were subjected to C. trachomatis assay and quantification in a real-time PCR-based diagnostic system.The amplimer crossing point (Cq) for EB dilutions was 10.0±1.6 less than for corresponding finger contacted urine specimens, which corresponds to ~10 µL of EB suspension transferred. This was largely independent of participant identity, C. trachomatis strain or EB dilution. Hand decontamination led to large reductions in EBs transferred, but transfer remained consistently detectable (...) . Recent Cq data from C. trachomatis-positive clinical urine specimens were collated, and 20% clearly contained sufficient C. trachomatis to detectably contaminate another specimen by finger-mediated transfer, as in this experiment.This study directly demonstrated the potential for urine contaminated fingers to convert a C. trachomatis-negative urine specimen to C. trachomatis positive as a result of contact. Accordingly, procedures for urine specimen collection, particularly from children, need

. 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
