in the index patient. The sine-qua-non for a definitive diagnosis is a positive stress test, or witnessing of involuntary urine loss from the urethral meatus coincident with increased abdominal pressure, such as occurs with coughing and Valsalva maneuver. If leakage is not witnessed in the supine position, the test may be repeated in the standing position to facilitate the diagnosis. Once the increase in abdominal pressure has subsided, flow through the urethra should subside as well. Rarely, one may (...) by clinical reduction in complaints measured by the Urinary Distress Inventory and the Patient Global Impression of Improvement (PGI-I). Another RCT did show that urodynamics in addition to office evaluation lead to better outcomes than office evaluation alone. 16 However, the conclusions of this study were weakened by the low enrollment of only 72 patients, 12 of whom were excluded from the urodynamics arm because of “unfavorable parameters” for surgery, including detrusor overactivity, and valsalva leak

comfort and promote optimal fetal positioning can be supported as long as adopted positions allow appropriate maternal and fetal monitoring and treatments and are not contraindicated by maternal medical or obstetric complications. Second Stage of Labor: Pushing Technique Obstetrician–gynecologists and other obstetric care providers in the United States often encourage women in labor to push with a prolonged, closed glottis effort (ie, Valsalva maneuver) during each contraction. However, when (...) data regarding superiority of spontaneous versus Valsalva pushing, each woman should be encouraged to use her preferred and most effective technique. Collectively, and particularly in light of recent high-quality study findings, data support pushing at the start of the second stage of labor for nulliparous women receiving neuraxial analgesia. Delayed pushing has not been shown to significantly improve the likelihood of vaginal birth and risks of delayed pushing, including infection, hemorrhage

144. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

the inappropriate use of vestibular suppressant medications, decreasing the inappropriate use of ancillary testing such as radiographic imaging, and increasing the use of appropriate therapeutic repositioning maneuvers. The guideline is intended for all clinicians who are likely to diagnose and manage patients with BPPV, and it applies to any setting in which BPPV would be identified, monitored, or managed. The target patient for the guideline is aged ≥18 years with a suspected or potential diagnosis of BPPV (...) and treatment of BPPV, minimizing potentially unnecessary return physician visits, and maximizing the health-related quality of life of individuals afflicted with BPPV. Action Statements The update group made strong recommendations that clinicians should (1) diagnose posterior semicircular canal BPPV when vertigo associated with torsional, upbeating nystagmus is provoked by the Dix-Hallpike maneuver, performed by bringing the patient from an upright to supine position with the head turned 45° to one side

recommendation) Diagnosis of a ventral hernia is typically made during the history and physical examination. Imaging studies including ultrasound, provocative ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) with and/or without Valsalva, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can also be used for diagnosis. Imaging studies may be helpful to assess the anatomic details of a ventral hernia, augmenting the physical examination, especially when a hernia cannot be reduced, and therefore the defect cannot be palpated (...) defects, which occur in almost half of cases, thus allowing adequate mesh coverage of all defects and the entire old incision. Enterotomy during LVHR has been reported between 1- 6% and usually occurs during adhesiolysis. Several maneuvers facilitate safe adhesiolysis, including: Traction/counter traction technique Use of angled or flexible laparoscope Moving the scope among ports Improved exposure utilizing outside pressure on the abdominal wall, particularly for adhesions within a hernia sac

Digital rectal examination can reveal the presence of anal hypertonia, poor incremental squeeze, paradoxical puborectalis contraction, rectocele, anorectal masses, stricture, or fecal impaction that can be associated with constipation. in particular, a Valsalva maneuver should be done to diagnose a rectocele, prolapse, pelvic floor TABLE 1.

In these 67 women the mean distances from the bladder neck to the proximal edge of the tape (BNTD) during Valsalva maneuver were significantly higher in cured women compared to the not-cured women (11.2 vs. 9.4mm). The distance between tape and urethra (TUD) was significantly lower in cured vs. not cured patients (2.6 vs. 4.1mm). All women with a TUD of >5mm (n = 5) were incontinent.

, randomized clinical trial designed as a noninferiority, single-blinded study, 124 patients received Adherus Dural Sealant (test sealant) and 126 received DuraSeal (control). The primary composite endpoint was the proportion of patients who were free of any intraoperative CSF leakage during Valsalva maneuver after dural repair, CSF leak/pseudomeningocele, and unplanned retreatment of the surgical site. Each component was then analyzed individually as a secondary endpoint. Patients were followed for 4 mo

with management that is based on acknowledging both possibilities simultaneously. Options for this patient with wide complex regular tachycardia and some signs of hemodynamic compromise but not peri-arrest include: Immediate attempted intervention on the rhythm: - Synchronized electrical cardioversion - Adenosine and/or vagal maneuvers - Medical cardioversion (procainamide, amiodarone, etc) These options all incur some small risk (sedation for cardioversion, very small risk of deterioration in rhythm (...) otherwise LBB-like morphology.

159. What happens when you give adenosine to a patient with this rhythm?

. --Same stroke precautions as atrial fib Posted by Steve Smith at Labels: , Reactions: 7 comments: Anonymous What is your opinion of the use of modified Valsalva maneuver when diagnosing such rhythm? Does it offer any help? If it does, wouldn't it be reasonable to spare the patient from adenosine's side effects (which we know, can be really disturbing for some) and continue with definitive treatment? Thank you in advance, Tommi Finnish paramedic It takes a lot of AV nodal blockade to prevent flutter
