252741. The effect of earplugs on sleep measures during exposure to simulated intensive care unit noise. (PubMed)

The effect of earplugs on sleep measures during exposure to simulated intensive care unit noise. Sleep deprivation may contribute to impaired immune function, ventilatory compromise, disrupted thermoregulation, and delirium. Noise levels in intensive care units may be related to disturbed sleep patterns, but noise reduction has not been tested in this setting.To measure the effect of a noise reduction intervention on the sleep of healthy subjects exposed to simulated intensive care unit (...) noise.After digital audiotape recording of noise and development of the noise reduction intervention, 5 nocturnal 8-hour periods of sleep were measured in 6 paid, healthy volunteers at 7-day intervals in a sleep disorders center. Polysomnographic data were collected by experienced sleep disorders technicians and scored by certified raters. After the first 3 quiet nights, earplugs were randomly assigned to be worn on the fourth and fifth nights during exposure to the recorded noise. Sound pressure levels

[Powdered milk enriched with iron and ascorbic acid as an intervention measure for treating iron deficiency anemia in children seen at a Basic Health Care Unit]. This study was undertaken to verify the influence of the use of iron and Vitamin C fortified powdered whole milk on the hemoglobin levels of 238 children, aged 6 to 18 months, seen at a Basic Health Care Unit in the State of São Paulo. The powdered milk was fortified with 9 mg of iron (ferrous sulfate) and 65 mg of Vitamin C for each (...) 100 g of powder. 4 kg/month were distributed to children under one year and 2 kg/month to those over one year of age. Clinical, anthropometric and hematological (hemoglobin level measurements) evaluations were performed at the onset of the study and at three month intervals after the beginning of the supplementation. At the end of the trial, there was still enough milk available to extend the intervention for a group of 39 children who had presented the worst evolution in the first six months

252743. Continuous enteral feeding counteracts preventive measures for gastric colonization in intensive care unit patients. (PubMed)

Continuous enteral feeding counteracts preventive measures for gastric colonization in intensive care unit patients. To test the influence of continuously administered enteral feeding on gastric pH and gastric colonization in patients receiving or not receiving topical antimicrobial prophylaxis of the oropharynx and stomach, including sucralfate as stress ulcer prophylaxis.Prospective, open trial.Two university hospital general intensive care units (ICUs).Patients (n = 95) with an ICU stay (...) for at least 5 days.Thirty-one patients received antimicrobial agents into the stomach and oropharynx in combination with sucralfate (1 g/6 hrs) as stress ulcer prophylaxis. Sixty-four other patients did not receive antimicrobial prophylaxis or sucralfate, but instead received gastric pH-increasing stress ulcer prophylactic agents, if indicated. Gastric colonization and gastric pH were measured on admission and subsequently at least two times a week. Forty-eight patients (14 receiving and 34 not receiving

252744. Effect of desloratadine versus placebo on nasal airflow and subjective measures of nasal obstruction in subjects with grass pollen-induced allergic rhinitis in an allergen-exposure unit. (PubMed)

Effect of desloratadine versus placebo on nasal airflow and subjective measures of nasal obstruction in subjects with grass pollen-induced allergic rhinitis in an allergen-exposure unit. Unlike many antihistamines, desloratadine can reduce nasal congestion in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR).We compared the effects of 5 mg of desloratadine and placebo on nasal airflow and SAR symptoms, including nasal congestion, in response to grass pollen in an allergen-exposure unit.In (...) a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial, 47 subjects with histories of SAR received desloratadine or placebo every morning for 7 days and, after a 10-day washout period, were crossed over to the other treatment arm for 7 days. Subjects underwent a 6-hour allergen exposure on day 7 of each treatment period. Nasal airflow and nasal secretion weights were measured before and every 30 minutes during allergen exposure; SAR symptoms (including nasal congestion) were scored before exposure

252745. A prospective study of lung water measurements during patient management in an intensive care unit. (PubMed)

A prospective study of lung water measurements during patient management in an intensive care unit. We prospectively evaluated a protocol that included extravascular thermal volume (ETV) as a measure of extravascular lung water (EVLW) instead of pulmonary artery wedge pressure (Ppaw) measurements to guide the hemodynamic management of 48 critically ill patients. Patients were randomized to either a protocol management (PM), or to a routine management (RM) group. In the RM group, EVLW (...) measurements were unknown to the primary care physicians. The 2 groups were similar with respect to age, gender, and severity of illness. In patients with initially high EVLW, EVLW fell to a greater extent in PM than in RM patients (18 +/- 5 versus 4 +/- 8% decrease, p less than 0.05). This difference was even greater in patients with heart failure. No adverse effects on oxygenation or renal function occurred in following the protocol. Mortality for the groups as a whole was similar, but was significantly

252746. The PATRIARCH Study. Using outcome measures for league tables: can a North American prediction of admission score be used in a United Kingdom children's emergency department? PRISA And Triage In A Regional Children's Hospital. (PubMed)

The PATRIARCH Study. Using outcome measures for league tables: can a North American prediction of admission score be used in a United Kingdom children's emergency department? PRISA And Triage In A Regional Children's Hospital. The use of league tables has become predominant in the healthcare culture of the United Kingdom. These tables are often based on measures that are viewed with scepticism by clinicians. This study was designed to test the validity of a North American risk of admission (...) with the highest PRISA scores (that is, with the highest likelihood of admission), none were admitted in the 48 hours after their original attendance.These results show that the PRISA is suitable as a measure of paediatric A&E department performance in the United Kingdom and it is highly promising as a future measure of quality.

252747. Clinical assay of N-duopropenide alcohol solution on hand application in newborn and pediatric intensive care units: control of an outbreak of multiresistant Klebsiella pneumoniae in a newborn intensive care unit with this measure. (PubMed)

Clinical assay of N-duopropenide alcohol solution on hand application in newborn and pediatric intensive care units: control of an outbreak of multiresistant Klebsiella pneumoniae in a newborn intensive care unit with this measure. Outbreaks of gram-negative colonization (generally by antibiotic-resistant enterobacteria) are common in newborn intensive care units (NICUs), and control methods are not always effective. We studied the effectiveness of an alcohol solution of N-duopropenide (NDP (...) ) in vivo (germicidal effect on flora of teams in the NICU and the pediatric intensive care unit vs handwashing with nonantiseptic soap) and its effect on the control of a multiresistant (MR) Klebsiella pneumoniae outbreak in our NICU that had persisted for 13 months, despite the use of classic control measures. For educational purposes, we also performed 4 prevalence studies of microbial hand flora in NICU staff (two before and two after introducing NDP). The alcohol solution of NDP was highly
