coronary revascularization or had a treadmill test without ischemia could resume sexual activity 3 to 4 weeks after MI. In contrast, the 2004 “ACC/AHA Guidelines for the Management of Patients with ST-elevation Myocardial Infarction” condoned sexual activity as early as 1 week after MI in the stable patient. Because participation of stable patients in cardiac rehabilitation exercise programs 1 week after MI has proved safe, resumption of sexual activity soon after uncomplicated MI seems reasonable (...) physical activity. If a patient can achieve an energy expenditure of ≥3 to 5 METs without demonstrating ischemia during exercise testing, then the risk for ischemia during sexual activity is very low. Sexual Activity and Myocardial Infarction Meta-analysis of 4 case-crossover studies, which consisted of 50% to 74% males predominantly in their 50s and 60s, showed that sexual activity was associated with a 2.70 increased relative risk of myocardial infarction (MI) compared with periods of time when

(QI) registry participation all promote the widespread dissemination of guideline-based evidence into actual practice. As a result, policy statements from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) advocate for the creation of regional systems of care for various time-critical diagnoses, including ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), out-of-hospital cardiac arrest resuscitation, and acute stroke. Creation of these regional networks requires multidisciplinary (...) for designating comprehensive stroke centers. Comprehensive stroke centers are highly specialized facilities capable of delivering the full range of care needed for complex stroke patients, including advanced neuroimaging capabilities, a neurosurgical team, and onsite rehabilitation services.

254. Treatment and recommendations for homeless people with Chronic Non-Malignant Pain

clinicians report that chronic pain is extremely common among their patients and is particularly challenging to treat. Although the prevalence of chronic pain among people experiencing homelessness remains largely unknown, this population suffers disproportionately from health problems that are associated with chronic pain — including trauma, peripheral vascular disease, viral hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, psychiatric illness, and substance use disorders (O‘Connell, 2004; Menchaca et al., 2008; Highley, 2008 (...) problems, including psychological sequelae of trauma and cognitive impairment. These factors also make adherence to a treatment plan for chronic pain more difficult. Barriers to effective pain management for homeless people include poor understanding of pain management in the general medical community, mutual mistrust between homeless persons and medical providers, lack of access to appropriate pain specialty clinics and other opportunities for rehabilitation, and lack of clear treatment

in the treatment of LEMS (Level C). Adverse effects of IVIg. Eighteen of the 22 prospective studies reviewed recorded the number of serious and minor AEs from 632 patients receiving IVIg (total dose 2.0–2.5 g/kg). There were no IVIg-related deaths in these studies. Most studies concluded that IVIg was well-tolerated and AEs were either transient or manageable. Serious AEs related to IVIg were rare and included aseptic meningitis (n = 3), urticaria (n = 2), heart failure (n = 1), myocardial infarction (n = 1 (...) ), and renal failure (n = 1). These findings do not exclude the possibility of rare AEs such as stroke and thrombotic events, which have been previously reported with IVIg. It is important to screen for vascular risk factors before infusion and to monitor carefully during and after infusion. , , The most common IVIg-related AEs included headache (16.1%), fever (6.6%), mild hypertension (4.6%), chills (3.3%), nausea (3.2%), asthenia (1.4%), arthralgia (1.3%), anorexia (1.1%), dizziness (1.1%), malaise (1.1
