2009 Sep - My New Stethoscope in the Intensive Care Unit

Dr. KS Tang, Intensive Care Unit, Tuen Mun Hospital, 29 Sep 2009

As chest physicians, it is our second nature to do complete physical examination of the chest. We are also greatly assisted by two common imaging modalities of the chest, namely chest radiography (CXR) and computerized tomography (CT) of thorax. As a chest physician working in ICU now, it appears to me that the three major tools are handicapped to various extents. It is usually quite difficult to listen to the back of ventilated patients. Furthermore, the noises of ventilators and pumps around you make percussion and detection of subtle auscultatory signs difficult if not impossible. For CXR, you can never obtain good quality erect PA films in full inspiration and good penetration. Furthermore, the turnaround time is usually in terms of hours while deteriorating ICU patients demand our decisions in minutes. CT thorax is even worse as transportation of critically ill patients to the CT suite involve substantial risk and may not be available 24 hours a day.

2009 - Sleep Habits and Susceptibility to the Common Cold

Sheldon Cohen, PhD; William J. Doyle, PhD; Cuneyt M. Alper, MD; Denise Janicki-Deverts, PhD; Ronald B. Turner, MD. Arch Intern Med. 2009;169(1):62-67.
Editor's comment: Do have enough sleep!

Background Sleep quality is thought to be an important predictor of immunity and, in turn, susceptibility to the common cold. This article examines whether sleep duration and efficiency in the weeks preceding viral exposure are associated with cold susceptibility.

Methods A total of 153 healthy men and women (age range, 21-55 years) volunteered to participate in the study. For 14 consecutive days, they reported their sleep duration and sleep efficiency (percentage of time in bed actually asleep) for the previous night and whether they felt rested. Average scores for each sleep variable were calculated over the 14-day baseline. Subsequently, participants were quarantined, administered nasal drops containing a rhinovirus, and monitored for the development of a clinical cold (infection in the presence of objective signs of illness) on the day before and for 5 days after exposure.

2009 Aug - Comparison of Registered and Published Primary Outcomes in Randomized Controlled Trials

Sylvain Mathieu, MD; Isabelle Boutron, MD, PhD; David Moher, PhD; Douglas G. Altman, DSc; Philippe Ravaud, MD, PhD. JAMA. 2009;302(9):977-984.
Context As of 2005, the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors required investigators to register their trials prior to participant enrollment as a precondition for publishing the trial's findings in member journals.

Objective To assess the proportion of registered trials with results recently published in journals with high impact factors; to compare the primary outcomes specified in trial registries with those reported in the published articles; and to determine whether primary outcome reporting bias favored significant outcomes.

2009 Sep - Perspective: Discussing Treatment Preferences With Patients Who Want "Everything"

Timothy E. Quill, MD; Robert Arnold, MD; and Anthony L. Back, MD. Annals of Internal Medicine, 1 September 2009 | Volume 151 Issue 5 | Pages 345-349
When asked about setting limits on medical treatment in the face of severe illness, patients and their families often respond that they want "everything." Clinicians should not take this request at face value, but should instead use it as the basis for a broader discussion about what "doing everything" means to the patient.
