level - the first appearance of a clear tapping sound (phase I Korotkoff) - and the diastolic level (the point at which the sounds disappear (phase V Korotkoff)). If Korotkoff sounds persist as the level approaches 0 mm Hg, then the point of muffling of the sound is used (phase IV) to indicate the diastolic pressure. Leaving the cuff partially inflated for too long will fill the venous system and make the sounds difficult to hear. • For those with an arrhythmia: additional readings with auscultation

143. Ventricular Arrhythmias and the Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death (Full text)

. Palpitations related to ventricular tachycardia (VT) are usually of a sudden onset/offset pattern and may be associated with presyncope and/or syncope. Episodes of sudden collapse with loss of consciousness without any premonition must raise the suspicion of bradyarrhythmias or VA. Syncope occurring during strenuous exercise, while sitting or in the supine position should always raise the suspicion of a cardiac cause, while other situational events may indicate vasovagal syncope or postural hypotension. 92 (...) . An electrophysiological study (EPS) with PVS has been used to document the inducibility of VT, guide ablation, assess the risks of recurrent VT or SCD, evaluate loss of consciousness in selected patients with arrhythmias suspected as a cause and assess the indications for ICD therapy. The yield of EPS varies fundamentally with the kind and severity of the underlying heart disease, the presence or absence of spontaneous VT, concomitant drug therapy, the stimulation protocol and the site of stimulation.

For those in whom pain persists, psychological symptoms (anxiety, depression), and loss of sleep are likely to develop, even if they are not prominent at the outset. Therefore, an integrated interdisciplinary treatment approach is recommended, tailored to the individual patient. The primary aims are to reduce pain, preserve or restore function, and enable patients to manage their condition and improve their quality of life. The four

No information on 3-month outcomes other than survival was identified.

However, clinicians prescribing macrolides need to consider in their individual patients the potential for prolongation of the QT interval and hearing loss as well as bacterial resistance. The duration and exact dosage of macrolide therapy is unknown. 27. For patients with an acute exacerbation of COPD in the outpatient or inpatient setting, we suggest that systemic corticosteroids be given orally or intravenously to prevent hospitalization for subsequent acute exacerbations of COPD (...) prescribing this medication need to advise their patients of the potential side effects of weight loss and diarrhea. Patients may have to discontinue the therapy because of side effects. The decision to prescribe this medication should also be informed by the fact that there is limited data for supplemental effectiveness in patients concurrently using inhaled therapies. 30.

Cardiovascular function is usually main- tained. The caveat that loss of consciousness should be unlikely is a particularly important aspect of the definition of moderate sedation; drugs and techniques used should carry a margin of safety wide enough to render unintended loss of consciousness unlikely. Because the patient who receives moderate sedation may progress into a state of deep sedation and obtundation, the practitioner should be prepared to increase the level of vigil- ance
