5. Ice Packs Reduce Postoperative Midline Incision Pain and Narcotic Use: A Randomized Controlled Trial. (Abstract)

Ice Packs Reduce Postoperative Midline Incision Pain and Narcotic Use: A Randomized Controlled Trial. Postoperative pain is an unavoidable consequence of open abdominal surgery. Although cryotherapy, the application of ice to a surgical wound site, has been shown to be effective in reducing postoperative pain in orthopaedic, gynecologic, and hernia operations, it has not been assessed in patients who undergo major open abdominal operations. We hypothesized that patients who receive cryotherapy (...) by Student's t-test or Mann-Whitney U test for parametric and nonparametric data, respectively.There were 55 patients randomized: 28 to the control group and 27 to the cryotherapy group. For the primary measure, mean postoperative pain score on postoperative days (PODs) 1 and 3 after surgery was significantly lower between the control and cryotherapy groups on the visual analog pain scale (p < 0.005). Narcotic use was decreased in the cryotherapy group on POD 1 by 3.9 morphine equivalents (p = 0.008

6. Comparison of Ice Packs Application and Relaxation Therapy in Pain Reduction during Chest Tube Removal Following Cardiac Surgery. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Comparison of Ice Packs Application and Relaxation Therapy in Pain Reduction during Chest Tube Removal Following Cardiac Surgery. Usually the chest tube removal (CTR) has been described as one of the worst experiences by patients in the intensive care unit.This study aimed to compare the effects of cold therapy and relaxation on pain of CTR among the patients undergoes coronary artery bypass graft surgery.This single-blinded clinical trial was done on 80 post-cardiac surgery patients (...) in the heart hospital of Sari-Iran. The patients were assigned to three randomized groups that included cold therapy, relaxation, and control groups. Data analysis was done by T-test, Chi-square, generalized estimating equations and repeated measures analysis variance tests.The groups had no significant differences in pain intensity before CTR (P = 0.84), but immediately after CTR there was a significant difference between the treatment (cold application and relaxation groups) and control groups (P = 0.001

7. The effect of cool water pack preparation on vaccine vial temperatures in refrigerators Full Text available with Trip Pro

The effect of cool water pack preparation on vaccine vial temperatures in refrigerators Cool water packs are a useful alternative to ice packs for preventing unintentional freezing of vaccines during outreach in some situations. Current guidelines recommend the use of a separate refrigerator for cooling water packs from ambient temperatures to prevent possible heat degradation of adjacent vaccine vials. To investigate whether this additional equipment is necessary, we measured the temperatures (...) that vaccine vials were exposed to when warm water packs were placed next to vials in a refrigerator. We then calculated the effect of repeated vial exposure to those temperatures on vaccine vial monitor status to estimate the impact to the vaccine. Vials were tested in a variety of configurations, varying the number and locations of vials and water packs in the refrigerator. The calculated average percentage life lost during a month of repeated warming ranged from 20.0% to 30.3% for a category 2 (least

to improve the synthesis rate of SMs, gaining inspiration from the formation mechanism of ice crystals. SMs with uniform particle sizes (polydispersity index less than 0.05) and good spherical features were fabricated through homogeneous nucleation. The mathematical relationship between particle sizes of SMs and reactant concentrations is further fitted. High accuracy of the regression equation is verified by an F-test and verification experiment. Highly ordered PCs (the stacking fault is about 1.5 (...) Synthesis of Silica Microspheres—Inspired by the Formation of Ice Crystals—With High Homogeneous Particle Sizes and Their Applications in Photonic Crystals Silica microspheres (SMs) must possess the performances of desirable monodispersity, narrow particle size distribution, and high sphericity for preparing photonic crystals (PCs) and other materials such as microspheres reference material, etc. We have adopted the techniques of increasing reactant concentration and raising the temperature

9. Strategies to link people with undiagnosed HIV infection to HIV testing, care, and prevention services

for conditions that indicated risk for or actual HIV infection – some of which could have been prevented if diagnosed with HIV earlier (12). Some researchers have suggested that there is a need for alternative provider-initiated targeted HIV testing strategies to those based on risk behaviours (13). Indicator Conditions (ICs) are conditions that tend to affect HIV-infected individuals more frequently, either because they are facilitated by immune deficiency, or they share modes of transmission (14). Many (...) researchers believe that offering HIV testing based on the presence of ICs has the potential to increase HIV testing and reduce stigma, as it removes the need for behavioural risk assessment (13). Using this strategy may also provide a means to prevent missed opportunities for HIV diagnosis. For example, a retrospective case-control study conducted in six general practices in Amsterdam found that 58.8% of new HIV cases had exhibited an HIV IC (most commonly syphilis and gonorrhea), compared with 7.4

Midwives must complete all fields of the COVID-19 test requisition form when they have completed swabbing and include with sample(s) for processing. How do I prepare the sample(s) for transportation? After collecting the sample, midwives should: ? Place the specimen in the biohazard bag and seal. ? Ensure that specimens are stored at 2-8°C (in the fridge). ? Ship specimen on ice packs. ? Note: if there will be a delay of more than 72 hours before specimen can be shipped to laboratory, keep specimen (...) frozen (-80°C) and ship on dry ice 6 Can any lab accept samples for COVID-19 testing? [April 7, 2020] Midwives can either: ? Ship sample(s) to their local PHO Laboratory or ? Ship sample(s) directly to one of six PHO Laboratories that are processing specimens for COVID-19 testing (located in Toronto, Hamilton, Kingston, Ottawa, Timmins and London).

Provocation tests should be performed by applying a cold stimulus to forearm skin. Cold provocation methods include the traditional ice cube test, testing with cool packs or cold water baths, and TempTest ® measurements (Fig. 1).

The test should be considered positive if the test site shows a palpable and clearly visible wheal and flare type skin reaction. This reaction is, in most cases, associated with itch and/or a burning sensation. In patients who show a positive
