several risk factors: age >1 month for full-term infants or 48 weeks’ postconceptional age for preterm infants, and absence of any previous apneic event at presentation to the hospital. Another large multicenter study found no association between the specific viral agent and risk of apnea in bronchiolitis. The literature on viral testing for bronchiolitis has expanded in recent years with the availability of sensitive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays. Large studies of infants hospitalized (...) for bronchiolitis have consistently found that 60% to 75% have positive test results for RSV, and have noted coinfections in up to one-third of infants. , , In the event an infant receiving monthly prophylaxis is hospitalized with bronchiolitis, testing should be performed to determine if RSV is the etiologic agent. If a breakthrough RSV infection is determined to be present based on antigen detection or other assay, monthly palivizumab prophylaxis should be discontinued because of the very low likelihood

183. How Much Do We Know About HDL Cholesterol?

Pfizer was forced to halt phase III trials of torcetrapib, a CETP inhibitor, after it was shown to increase mortality . [5] Pfizer spent over $800 million on their failed HDL raising attempt. [6] Some suggested that the mortality increase was due to adverse effects such as raising blood pressure. However, subsequent data analysis found that , [7] further confirming its lack of efficacy in halting or reversing atherosclerosis. Another CETP inhibitor, dalcetrapib, was tested in the dal-OUTCOMES study (...) clearance. [10] Several trials have evaluated the effect of niacin on cardiovascular outcomes. The HATS trial evaluated the effect of simvastatin plus niacin and found not only a rise in HDL levels but a regression of atherosclerotic lesions as well as reduced incidence of coronary events. [11] This trial did not compare niacin plus a statin to statin alone, however, so the marginal benefit of raising HDL could not be tested. The ARBITER 6-HALTS study looked at statin plus niacin versus statin plus

experts using prespecified levels of evidence. Recommendations Diagnosis and assessment A new recommendation this year relates to the diagnosis of white coat hypertension, which could be confirmed either by reliable repeated home blood pressure (BP) monitoring or 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM). Recommendations for BP measurement, criteria for hypertension diagnosis and follow-up, assessment of global cardiovascular risk, diagnostic testing, diagnosis of renovascular and endocrine causes (...) on the CHEP recommendations is to provide timely evidence-based recommendations to primary care providers to improve hypertension prevention, detection, and control in Canadians. Key clinical questions addressed include: (1) How is hypertension diagnosed? (2) How do we diagnose white coat hypertension? (3)What frequency of follow-up and laboratory testing is necessary for hypertensive patients? (4) How is risk assessed for future cardiovascular events in these patients? (5) When should we start

188. Antithrombotics: indications and management

with antithrombotics and their management should be evidence based. Developments since the publication of SIGN 36: Antithrombotic Therapy in 1999 include the introduction to clinical practice of novel antithrombotics (for example orally active inhibitors of thrombin and activated factor X), changes to models of care (including patient self testing and self dosing for warfarin) and exploration of new indications for antithrombotics (for example recurrent miscarriage). This guideline complements, and should be used (...) clinical assessment has demonstrated an indication for heparin treatment, the patient’s medical and drug history should be assessed and baseline blood tests including platelet count, coagulation screen (in order to check baseline APTT ratio is normal), urea, electrolytes and liver function tests should be obtained. These may reveal contraindications or risk factors for bleeding, such as anaemia, thrombocytopenia, renal failure, or coagulopathy (eg due to severe liver disease). 9 A baseline platelet

of the key definitions and concepts underpinning waged home care substitution by home modifications, and then testing this by comparing outcome and process measures from cases—those with exposure to home modification and waged home care interventions. Thus we systematically search the literature to present both current work and then use this to refine and advance a person-environment fit theory relevant to waged home care substitution, collect cases to test it, and reflect on whether the theory (...) its real-life context, from which both generating and testing hypotheses become possible. The case study method was deemed an ideal supplementary methodology for this research because of its ability to describe and illustrate a complex situation. This report seeks to better understand the substitutive relationships that can develop surrounding care in the home, where health, available care support and degree of home modifications are all highly individualised and each come into play to varying
