Pulmonary hypertension in the ICU

Many seriously ill patients have risk factors for pulmonary hypertension. This condition is much more common than you might appreciate. It is very important to understand the physiology, how to recognise patients at risk, and how to investigate them.

Aortic Aneurysms

This is a PowerPoint presentation I made whilst on my surgery rotation that I received several compliments for. I have just re-discovered it and found it useful for revision, so maybe you will too! It covers the basics of: - Aortic anatomy - What is an aneurysm? - Risk factors - Ruptured aortic aneurysms - Surgical repair: Open & EVAR - Main complications of surgery

Introduction to Epidemiology and public health

Introduction to Epidemiology and public health Epidemiology is the study of the patterns, causes, and effects of health and disease in defined populations. It is the cornerstone of public health, and informs policy decisions and evidence-based medicine by identifying risk factors for disease and targets for preventive medicine. Epidemiologists help with study design, collection and statistical analysis of data, and interpretation and dissemination of results (including peer review and occasional systematic review). Epidemiology has helped develop methodology used in clinical research, public health studies and, to a lesser extent, basic research in the biological sciences. Public health is "the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals" (1920, C.E.A. Winslow). It is concerned with threats to health based on population health analysis. The population in question can be as small as a handful of people or as large as all the inhabitants of several continents (for instance, in the case of a pandemic). The dimensions of health can encompass "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity", as defined by the United Nations' World Health Organization. Public health incorporates the interdisciplinary approaches of epidemiology, biostatistics and health services. Environmental health, community health, behavioral health, health economics, public policy, insurance medicine and occupational health (respectively occupational medicine) are other important subfields.

Lung cancer screening with low dose computed tomography

Lung cancer is a health problem that clearly merits a screening programme. Each year about 35 000 people in the United Kingdom die from lung cancer—more than the number for colorectal and breast cancer combined. In addition, about three quarters of people present with incurable disease, at a stage when treatment has little effect on overall survival; early stage disease is curable; risk factors for lung cancer are well understood; and a highly sensitive screening test is available.

Antibiotics to promote growth in children?

Overt infections are a leading cause of death worldwide in children under 5,1 and strategies to prevent and treat infections are a cornerstone of child survival programmes. Recent assessments suggest that despite a net increase in the size of birth cohorts, the number of children dying before their fifth birthday has fallen to 6.6 million (uncertainty range 6.3-7.0 million) per year, a 45% reduction from almost 12 million deaths in 1990.2 In contrast, the fall in undernutrition has been modest at best. An estimated 165 million children under 5 were stunted in 2011 and an estimated 52 million severely wasted; almost 45% of the current burden from child mortality in under 5s can be attributed to malnutrition.3 Although many risk factors for early child mortality are well recognised, the mechanisms underlying chronic enteropathy and growth failure among children in low and middle income countries remain uncertain.4
