and coordination of care. Introduction Cerumen, or “earwax,” is a naturally occurring substance that cleans, protects, and lubricates the external auditory canal. It is also the primary reason why the ear canal can become obstructed. While often harmless, blockage of the ear canal by cerumen can lead to a host of symptoms: hearing loss, tinnitus, fullness, itching, otalgia, discharge, odor, and cough. In addition, cerumen impaction can prevent diagnostic assessment by preventing complete examination (...) , or both. (3) Clinicians should assess the patient with cerumen impaction by history and/or physical examination for factors that modify management, such as ≥1 of the following: anticoagulant therapy, immunocompromised state, diabetes mellitus, prior radiation therapy to the head and neck, ear canal stenosis, exostoses, and nonintact tympanic membrane. (4) Clinicians should not routinely treat cerumen in patients who are asymptomatic and whose ears can be adequately examined. (5) Clinicians should

ANV is not an indication of psychopathology but is rather a learned response that, in other life situations (e.g., food poisoning), results in adaptive avoidance. A variety of correlational studies provide empirical support for classical conditioning. For example, the prevalence of ANV before treatment with any chemotherapy is very rare, and few patients ever

A growing body of literature examines the prevalence of malnutrition in obese cancer patients. In a study of clinical data obtained from 1,469 patients with metastatic primary cancers, 41.9% were identified as overweight or obese.[ ] Upon assessment, 50% were at risk of being malnourished, and 12% were already (...) by the patient. There are four sections comprising 17 data points evaluating weight/weight history, food intake, symptoms, and activities/function. The remainder of the PG-SGA is completed by a health care practitioner, accounting for information about disease and metabolic demand and the completion of a physical exam. The abPG-SGA and PG-SGAsf use only the section completed by the patient. Responses are then scored and, on the basis of the score, patients are stratified into four nutrition triage categories

However, in general, the health effects of e-cigarettes have not been well studied, and the potential harm incurred by long-term use of these devices remains completely unknown. Nevertheless, some studies have examined the health effects of e-cigarettes by considering the constituents of their aerosol (...) . There are some studies of prolonged NRT in smokers who have quit smoking. , In these studies, no adverse effects have been found when nicotine medication was administered for months to several years. Other studies indicate that patients with known cardiovascular disease tolerate NRT well for periods up to 12 weeks. Because most of the toxicity from cigarette smoking derives from combustion products, the health effects of smokeless tobacco could be examined to assess potential long-term adverse effects
