intermittent. Provocative testing or an electro- physiological study (EPS) may be required when a bradycardia is suspected but not documented (Figure 2). Since there is no de?ned heart rate below which treatment is indi- cated, correlation between symptoms and bradyarrhythmia is essen- tial when deciding on the need for cardiac pacing therapy. This can be dif?cult to establish in patients with competing mechanisms for their symptoms—for example, HF or pulmonary disease. Another common dilemma (...) , the suspicion should be corroborated by an ECG documen- tation of bradyarrhythmia or, alternatively, by laboratory testing. w25 The most useful tests and their diagnostic yield are listed inTable6. † ECGmonitoring. Short-term monitoring (Holter, telemetry and ex- ternal loop recorder) is useful, soon after the index episode, in patients who have very frequent symptoms (at least once per week).

with hope (or relief) as accessible, scalable tools that employers can offer. The market is being flooded with new tools and re-purposed versions of existing tools. These are targeted at employees and sold into a market very keen on low cost, high volume solutions. In October 2017, I , which welcomed innovation in this field and drew out the necessity of digital interventions to be tested in and adapted for workplace settings for maximum effectiveness. This recent review from Elizabeth Stratton and her (...) stated, we need to do more to understand the factors that affect roll-out in workplace settings. The ideal scenario is creating a crucible where agile development, service design and robust evidence can combine to create products and services that meet an obvious need. We must be aware of the problem or opportunity being addressed, the audience, and the evidence of effectiveness in this context before deploying tools in the workplace. That means collecting good data and engaging employees as well

90. Should we screen new Dads for depression? #DadsMHday

, but will it work? A fair answer from this research is probably: not yet. The 12-question Edinburgh-Gotland Depression Scale (EGDS) is a step forward in that it combines questions that are perhaps a better fit for the range of symptoms experienced by many new dads with depression. However, this current iteration of the test is not ready for rolling out nationwide, and this is something that the authors accept in their measured conclusion: This is an important first step towards identifying a set of items (...) study carried out by researchers in Sweden aimed to develop a better tool for screening depression in fathers of children aged 0-18 months. Their two main aims were to: “investigate whether depressive symptoms in fathers postnatally comprise both typical depressive symptoms and externalizing, depressive equivalents” “test the hypothesis that the addition to the EPDS of items addressing depressive equivalents would result in increased sensitivity in detecting fathers with elevated, burdening

If the physician documented a reason for denial (including it is my right to), attempted to educate the patient (gave him ACS pamphlet on recommended screening), periodically revisited the topic (and noted refusal again), and did not ignore the patient's request for alternative testing (FOBT vs colonoscopy), then the physician did everything possible and has a defensible position.

There is an argument that many of the manual therapy postgraduate courses do a good job in developing more skilled physiotherapists with better examination and diagnosis skills. Well, this may be true. I have seen many of the postgraduate courses and MSc programs run by manual therapy institutions in the UK such as the and and they do cover some enhanced clinical reasoning and assessment skills such as blood test and radiology interpretation. However, I also know (...) training?

I felt such infuriation and overwhelming grief when we log rolled this beautiful baby and it became evident that he had been subjected to such extensive sexual abuse that I was secretly thankful he was now unresponsive. Just as Josh was out of spinal immobilization, I scooped him into my arms to cradle him in his mother’s absence. Once the charge nurse heard (...) about the test results, he suddenly became concerned about Josh and moved him from the pediatric ED to a trauma bay. I wanted to stay with Josh in the trauma bay; after all, he was my patient, and I was his nurse. Instead, a different nurse would take over. With no choice in the matter, I felt forced into abandoning and dismissing Josh. The move into a trauma bay was futile, and a trauma activation wouldn’t have saved him. Nothing further could be done for him, except to offer him some human touch
