Decreased swallowing function is a common and main cause of malnutrition and aspiration pneumonia in patients with Parkinson's disease. The aims of this systematic review were to summarize and qualitatively analyze the studies that have been published on behavioral therapies for improving swallowing functions in patients with Parkinson's disease. Studies published from January 2000 to December 2015 were identified via electronic database searches using Ovid-MEDLINE, Ovid-EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and 8 Korean databases...

Pediatric patients with inflammatory bowel disease are undervaccinated against influenza. Gastroenterology nurses are ideally situated to assist in improving vaccination in this population. The objective of this quality improvement project was to evaluate the implementation of information technology prompts within the electronic medical record to improve influenza vaccination during specialty clinic visits. The proportion of patients with yearly influenza vaccination was evaluated at baseline, Year 1, and Year 2 following implementation...

The aim of this study was to determine prognostic factors in pediatric patients with short bowel syndrome and very short bowel syndrome (defined as less than 25 cm of the bowel with or without colon). This was a retrospective, single-center, observational study that included patients with intestinal failure. Thirty-eight children with short bowel syndrome were included in the study (mean age at diagnosis = 8.4 [range = 0-48] months; female/male = 20/18); 12 children (31.6%) had very short bowel syndrome. Weaning from parenteral nutrition was achieved in 29 (74...

Given the chronic nature of inflammatory bowel disease, understanding the coping behaviors of individuals affected with the disease is important to influence health outcomes. Although minorities comprise a significant portion of individuals with the disease, little is known about the potential influence of one's culture, specifically among African Americans, on coping with inflammatory bowel disease. This integrative literature review examined the past decade of research related to the coping behaviors of African Americans living with inflammatory bowel disease to identify opportunities for further research...

Donna M Zucker, Rhoda Redulla
Minimal hepatic encephalopathy has been shown to increase risk of involvement in road traffic accidents and alter quality of life. This systematic review focused on the role of nonabsorbable disaccharides for the management of minimal hepatic encephalopathy. Randomized clinical trials that evaluated medical management of minimal hepatic encephalopathy were considered for inclusion. Individual studies compared lactulose with usual care and lactulose with probiotics and L-ornithine-L-aspartate. The outcome for examination was the neuropsychiatric test for cognitive function...

The aim of this study was to investigate adherence to a gluten-free diet and potentially associated factors, focusing on the relationship between adherence and knowledge of the gluten content of foods and of celiac disease in general. A questionnaire was completed by adult patients diagnosed with celiac disease including demographics, dietary practices, sources of information, and attitude to the disease. Their knowledge of disease and gluten-free diet was assessed using a newly developed scale comprising 31 statements on celiac disease in general and foods appropriate in a gluten-free diet...

Deborah Jo Kummer, Bonnie J Walden
The purpose of this Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates Fellowship project was to determine whether capnography is more accurate than oximetry in identifying symptoms of respiratory depression in patients undergoing moderate sedation. Capnography provides an early warning of respiratory depression and airway compromise, especially when the medications used for sedation include opiates and benzodiazepines. It is a standard of care according to the American Society of Anesthesiologists that should be adopted in order to provide the safest possible environment for the delivery of moderate sedation...

Recent statistics report that 3 million people, or 1% of the population in the United States (U.S.), are affected by celiac disease (CD). In addition, in the U.S., as many as 1 in 80 children is affected with CD. However, CD can be challenging to diagnose and many children are not correctly diagnosed or live without a diagnosis for several years. Symptoms, if present, are often nonspecific and may be common manifestations of many pediatric illnesses. The purpose of this review is to examine the current evidence regarding incidence, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of a child with CD...

Medical professionals have long been concerned about the lack of accurate information in some online spaces. People with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have a great need for health information, and with the rise of social media platforms, patients are going online to share and receive health information from other patients. This study aimed to uncover how patient leaders of online IBD communities share health information, and how they conceive their responsibility to provide accurate information. To answer these questions, a digital ethnography of 14 online IBD communities was conducted...

Jingtao Chen, Patrick Brady
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common chronic disorder in industrialized countries. Gastroesophageal reflux disease is one of the most frequent diseases encountered by primary care providers. The primary symptoms of GERD include heartburn, regurgitation, globus sensation, dysphagia, chest pain, and belching. If symptoms are left untreated, a major concern is complications and the potential risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma associated with GERD. With the increasing prevalence and incidence of GERD and the increasing cost of this disease, there is a need for advanced practice registered nurses to understand the nature of GERD including its pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, and treatment options to address the disease...

The aim of this prospective, descriptive cohort study is to describe the prevalence of lower bowel dysfunction, possible relationship to diagnosis and severity, use of laxatives, and defecation patterns in patients with acquired brain injury during inpatient rehabilitation. Enrollment consisted of all patients admitted to an inpatient rehabilitation hospital (n = 98) within a 3-month period and assessments of fecal incontinence and fecal constipation at admission were performed. Documentation of used laxatives, number of defecations, and the macroscopic form during 4 weeks was conducted...

Providing safe patient care is an important focus of healthcare organizations. In surgical settings, mortality rates have been shown to decrease from 1.5% to 0.8% and complication rates from 11% to 7% when institutions use the World Health Organization's Surgical Safety Checklist. In our hospital-based gastrointestinal endoscopy unit, we recognized that inconsistencies in the preprocedural readiness of patients were causing inefficiencies in scheduling. Therefore, we initiated a quality improvement project to determine whether a preprocedural checklist and positive reinforcement for the nurses in the units could improve endoscopy preparation of patients...

A diverse range of conditions share symptoms commonly identified with irritable bowel syndrome. The objective of this study was to examine the diagnostic process in identifying additional diagnoses in women who are attending a clinic for evaluation of symptoms suggestive of irritable bowel syndrome. A retrospective audit was conducted of anonymous data gathered on consecutive female patients presenting to a specialist nurse-led service in Christchurch, New Zealand, with a provisional diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome...
