Hypogammaglobulinemia commonly presents with chronic diarrhea. Unfortunately, these patients require intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) transfusions of 400-800 mg/kg every 3-4 weeks as a standard treatment for hypogammaglobulinemia. Repeated transfusion of IVIG is costly, and many patients may not be able to afford it. We report the case of a young male with chronic small intestinal diarrhea who was later diagnosed with hypogammaglobulinemia. We treated the patient with fresh-frozen plasma (FFP) and the patient responded favorably...

INTRODUCTION: To date, there is limited literature to guide emergency providers (EPs) on the proper dosing of prescription opioids. Our study aims to assess the self-reported opioid use, storage, and disposal practices of patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) with acute pain. METHODS: This prospective cohort study employed a validated, cross-sectional survey of subjects identified using electronic medical records. The survey link was e-mailed to a continuous sample of eligible participants 3-4 weeks following ED discharge...

INTRODUCTION: Thousands of children and families are in danger after two powerful earthquakes and dozens of aftershocks struck the border between Turkey and Syria. Thus, earthquake survivors in Turkey and Syria have an urgent need for psychological help. The objectives of this study were to (1) describe the mental health support services offered to people affected by the earthquakes that ravaged parts of Turkey and Syria, (2) discuss the challenges faced by the psychological support services, and (3) highlight recommendations for improving mental health services for earthquake survivors...

INTRODUCTION: Primary intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a stroke subtype with high morbidity and mortality. Surgical treatments for ICH may be one of the beneficial modalities. There are inconsistent clinical outcomes of surgical treatments in several randomized controlled trials. This study aimed to evaluate if surgical treatment can reduce mortality in patients with ICH in a real-world setting. METHODS: This was a retrospective analytical study. The inclusion criteria were consecutive adult patients aged 18 years or over admitted to neurosurgery ward due to ICH, and indicated for surgical treatment according to the 2015 guideline for the management of spontaneous ICH...

Snakebite is one of the most common complaints related to wilderness medicine. Venomous snakebite manifestation is divided into local and systemic envenomation. For the Elapidae group, the most feared complication is respiratory muscle paralysis due to neurotransmitter malfunction at the neuromuscular junction level which leads to respiratory insufficiency. However, there is a lack of evidence or case report incidence to suggest that it can potentially associate with the development of stroke disorder. We present a rare case of massive posterior circulation infarct in a middle-aged gentleman following a cobra bite ...

INTRODUCTION: Midface fracture incidence and trauma patterns vary across countries, due to socioeconomic, environmental, and cultural factors. The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the etiology, pattern, and treatment of midface fractures in North of Jordan during 2018-2021. METHODS: This single-center retrospective study was based on the review of the medical records of patients who had suffered midface fractures and were treated at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the King Abdullah University Hospital...

INTRODUCTION: Adequate sedation and analgesia are two crucial factors affecting recovery of intensive care patients. Improper use of sedation and analgesia in intensive care patients may adversely lead to brain oxygen desaturation. This study aims to determine cerebral oxygenation as measured by near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and inotropic interventions received among mechanically ventilated children in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). METHODS: This study is a nested case - control study in the PICU of Indonesian tertiary hospital...

An aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) is a rare developmental anomaly wherein the right subclavian artery arises from the descending aorta as a fourth branch of the aortic arch. We present the case of ARSA in an 81-year-old woman who was injured in a motorcycle accident. The patient had a history of asymptomatic cerebral infarction, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and rheumatoid arthritis. She was diagnosed with spleen and liver injury, left renal injury, along with fractures in the rib, pelvic, vertebrae, and right tibia...

INTRODUCTION: Trauma is a major cause of death worldwide, and prehospital care is critical to improve patient outcomes. However, there is controversy surrounding the effectiveness of limiting scene time to 10 min or less in the care of major trauma patients. This study aimed to investigate the association between scene time and mortality in major trauma patients. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted on major trauma patients treated by the Thammasat University Hospital Emergency Medical Services (EMS) team from 2020 to 2022...

INTRODUCTION: Sepsis is a life-threatening condition with a very narrow golden period in which confirmatory diagnosis may change the outcome dramatically. No confirmatory biomarker is available till date for early diagnosis of sepsis. This study aimed to evaluate the combined and independent role of quick sequential organ failure assessment (qSOFA) score, lactate, and neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in diagnosis and mortality prediction in early sepsis. METHODS: This was a hospital-based, single-center, prospective cohort study conducted in a tertiary care institute, Karnataka, India...

Point-of-care ultrasound (PoCUS) has a potentially vital role to play in emergency medicine (EM), whether it be in high-, medium-, or low-resourced settings. However, numerous barriers are present which impede EM PoCUS implementation nationally and globally: (i) lack of a national practice guideline or scope of practice for EM PoCUS, (ii) resistance from non-PoCUS users of ultrasound imaging (USI) and lack of awareness from those who undertake parallel or post-EM patient care, and (iii) heterogeneous pattern of resources available in different institutes and settings...

INTRODUCTION: The link between methamphetamine (METH) use and mortality or morbidity, particularly perioperative complications, associated with trauma surgery are not well characterized. This study aims to address this by performing a comparison of surgical outcomes between METH-negative (METH-) and METH-positive (METH+) trauma patients. METHODS: An Institutional Review Board-approved retrospective chart review was performed on all trauma patients admitted to our Level 1 trauma center who underwent surgical operations between 2015 and 2020...
