HIV infection and AIDS HIV infection and AIDS - NICE CKS Share HIV infection and AIDS: Summary The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a retrovirus that preferentially infects and destroys cells of the immune system, in particular the CD4 cells (a class of T lymphocyte, also known as T helper cells). There are 2 main types of HIV: HIV-1 (the predominant type in the UK) is highly virulent and is found worldwide. HIV-2 is found mainly in West Africa but has also been reported in Portugal (...) that breaks the skin. HIV cannot be transmitted by social interactions, such as shaking hands and kissing, or by the routine sharing of household items. Primary HIV infection (PHI) or HIV seroconversion illness often presents with a flu-like illness in the first few weeks following infection and can be mild or severe. The person is highly infectious during PHI. Progression of HIV infection involves: An asymptomatic stage once the symptoms of PHI resolve. Some people progress rapidly to AIDS (Acquired

139. Effect of a Multimedia Patient Decision Aid to Supplement the Informed Consent Process of a Peripherally Inserted Central Venous Catheter Procedure: Pre-Post Quasi-Experimental Study. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Effect of a Multimedia Patient Decision Aid to Supplement the Informed Consent Process of a Peripherally Inserted Central Venous Catheter Procedure: Pre-Post Quasi-Experimental Study. Informed consent is a complex process to help patients engage in care processes and reach the best treatment decisions. There are many limitations to the conventional consent process that is based on oral discussion of information related to treatment procedures by the health care provider. A conclusive body (...) of research supports the effectiveness of multimedia patient decision aids (PtDAs) in the consent process in terms of patient satisfaction, increased knowledge about the procedure, reduced anxiety level, and higher engagement in the decision making. Little information is available about the effectiveness of multimedia PtDAs in the consent process of invasive therapeutic procedures such as the peripherally inserted central venous catheter (PICC).The objective of this study was to examine the effectiveness

140. Bilateral versus unilateral hearing aids for bilateral hearing impairment in adults. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Bilateral versus unilateral hearing aids for bilateral hearing impairment in adults. Acquired hearing loss is common and its incidence increases markedly with age. In most people, 'age-related' hearing loss is sensorineural (due to the loss of cochlear hair cells) and bilateral, affecting both ears to the same degree. Hearing loss categorised as mild, moderate or severe is primarily managed with hearing aids. People with bilateral hearing loss may be offered one aid, fitted to one specific ear (...) , or two aids fitted to both ears. There is uncertainty about the relative benefits to people with hearing loss of these different strategies.To assess the effects of bilateral versus unilateral hearing aids in adults with a bilateral hearing impairment.The Cochrane ENT Information Specialist searched the ENT Trials Register; Cochrane Register of Studies Online; PubMed; Ovid Embase; CINAHL; Web of Science; ClinicalTrials.gov; ICTRP and additional sources for published and unpublished trials.
