Pain is considered the most distressing symptom of a burn wound, with analgesia usually provided via oral or parenteral medications. Use of systemic opioids can be complicated by fluctuations in bioavailability, absorption, and clearance of drugs caused by the burn. There has been little research done in the area of topical medications for burn analgesia.(More)
Vinorelbine is a synthetic vinca alkaloid used for the treatment of Hodgkin's disease and metastatic breast, non-small-cell lung, and ovarian cancers. Vinorelbine-associated tumor pain can be so severe that patients are unable to complete therapy. We present a series of three patients who were premedicated with ketorolac in an attempt to control(More)
This study aims to test the validity and cost-effectiveness of reagent-strip analysis compared with microbiological laboratory testing for mass screening of urine for urinary tract infections in a gynaecological setting. Over a six-month period, urine samples from a convenient group of 228 women presenting in a gynaecological ward of an NHS Trust hospital(More)
PURPOSE Blood pressure (BP) is commonly assessed by brachial oscillometry in clinical practice, whereas in physiological studies, finger plethysmography is often employed. This study assessed the limits of agreement between BP metrics obtained from each device. METHODS In 96 participants, we simultaneously recorded BP by brachial oscillometry (BP+; Uscom,(More)
We investigated if hemodynamic variability, cerebral blood flow (CBF) regulation, and their interrelationships differ between patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) and controls. We recorded blood pressure (BP) and bilateral middle cerebral artery flow velocity (MCAv) in a cohort of TIA patients (n = 17), and age-matched controls (n = 15).(More)
Early exercise engagement elicits meaningful changes in peripheral blood pressure in patients diagnosed with transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or minor stroke. However, central hemodynamic markers may provide clinicians with important diagnostic and prognostic information beyond that provided by peripheral blood pressure readings. The purpose of this(More)
The first examples of gold(I) trimethylsilylchalcogenolate complexes were synthesized and their reactivity showcased in the preparation of a novel gold-copper-sulfur cluster [Au4 Cu4 S4 (dppm)2 ] (dppm=bis(diphenylphosphino)methane). The unprecedented structural chemistry of this compound gives rise to interesting optoelectronic properties, including(More)
