Extubation failure increases morbidity and mortality in intensive care. Laryngeal edema which developed post extubation is one of the major risk factor for extubation failure. Post extubation laryngeal edema occurs in up to 37% of the extubations. Steroids are commonly used pre extubation to prevent development of laryngeal edema. Aim of this study was to find whether steroids can prevent post extubation laryngeal edema and types of patients who frequently fails extubation....

Inter-hospital Critical Care Transport: Implementation of a Novel Policy and Review of the Literature

Andrea M Pakula, Jannet Gannon, Lisa Mundy, Kathleen Berns, Anita Stoltenberg and Beth A Ballinger

Article Type: Literature Review | First Published: January 30, 2016

The decision to transport a critically ill patient is based on the need for diagnostic or therapeutic procedures that are not available within the intensive care unit. Most commonly this type of transport is within the home facility and is for procedures such as imaging or for operative intervention. Theoretically, intra-hospital transfers are safer than the transfers to another institution, as transfers outside of the home facility tend to require the coordination of extensive cardio-pulmonary ...

The Role of Vitamin D in Metabolic Syndrome

Hwei-Fang Tsai

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: March 31, 2016

The effects of vitamin D on bone and mineral metabolism were well known. Proper exposure under the sunlight to increase body vitamin D content was long well practiced.

Miriam Theilla RN, Jonathan Cohen, Pierre Singer, Chedva Liebman and Ilya Kagan

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 25, 2016

The Rabin Medical Center (RMC), a tertiary care, university-affiliated, 1,300-bed hospital in central Israel, recognized the need for a multi-disciplinary approach and so established a Clinical Nutrition Forum (CNF) comprising physicians, dieticians, pharmacists and nutrition nurses.

Radiographic Follow-up of Transforaminal Lumbar Fusion with Silicon Nitride Spacers: A case Report of Two Patients

Jim A Youssef, Sue Lynn Myhre and B. Sonny Bal

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 28, 2016

When non operative actions for degenerative spinal disorders fall flat, surgical intervention frequently becomes the popular choice of treatment. Although the class of pathology matters, the surgical operation will generally include an arthrodesis procedure. The gravity of a successful initial fusion surgery is intensified not only by the growing number of arthrodesis procedures, but also by the rising costs for revisal operations. Additionally, fusion success appears to have an impact on patien...
