Testing 106 Giardia-positive and 104 Giardia-negative stool specimens yielded a sensitivity of 97.2% and a specificity of 100% for the SIMPLE-READ Giardia rapid(More)
BACKGROUND Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) and mild therapeutic hypothermia (MTH) have been linked to increased risk of Stent Thrombosis (ST) in comatose survivors who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). In this sense, there is no formal recommendation about which antiplatelet regimen should be used in patients with acute coronary(More)
BACKGROUND Mild therapeutic hypothermia (MTH) is associated with an increased risk of both thrombotic and bleeding events. Although little is known about the use of Glycoprotein IIb-IIIa inhibitors (GPi) in this setting, the early action and the intravenous administration of these agents in patients who cannot swallow might potentially translate into(More)
