  • Postpolio Syndrome: A Review of Lived Experiences of Patients. [Journal Article]
    Int J Appl Basic Med Res 2019 Jul-Sep; 9(3):129-134Oluwasanmi OJ, Mckenzie DA, … Fakoya AO
  • Postpolio syndrome (PPS) refers to a group of conditions that are present in patients, years after recovery from initial acute paralytic poliomyelitis. About 15%-80% of 20 million polio survivors worldwide will experience exacerbation of symptoms which typically appear 15-30 years after the resolution of initial poliomyelitis. Symptoms include new muscle weakness, fatigue, myalgia, joint pain, dy…
  • Complex regional pain syndrome - False hopes and miscommunications. [Review]
    Autoimmun Rev 2019; 18(3):270-278Chang C, McDonnell P, Gershwin ME
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) has been considered to be an autoimmune disease and there have been clinical trials with intravenous immunoglobulin. Often the etiology of the so-called CRPS diagnosis cannot be discerned and there are no validated instruments that provide functional metrics. The term complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), coined in 1994 to describe patients in whom the pain …
  • Successful outcome of early ambulation after extensive skin grafting in extramammary Paget's disease. [Journal Article]
    J Dermatol 2018; 45(12):1456-1458Maeda T, Yoshino K, … Hata H
  • Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is a rare cutaneous malignancy that mainly affects the senior population. There is a relatively high risk of postoperative complications from surgery in the senior population, such as disuse syndrome, deep vein thrombosis and postoperative delirium. To prevent such postoperative complications, early ambulation is recommended. However, EMPD often requires extens…
  • Botulism in the ICU: Nursing care plan. [Case Reports]
    Enferm Intensiva 2018 Apr - Jun; 29(2):86-93Zariquiey-Esteva G, Galeote-Cózar D, … Castanera-Duro A
  • CONCLUSIONS: The nursing care plan, standardised and organised with the NANDA taxonomy and prioritised with the outcome-present state-test (OPT) model, guaranteed the best care based on evidence, as the NOC scores improvement demonstrated. It was impossible to compare the nursing intervention with other case reports.
  • Intensive Care Unit-Acquired Weakness. [Review]
    Neurol Clin 2017; 35(4):723-736Kramer CL
  • Intensive care unit-acquired weakness (ICUAW) is a substantial contributor to long-term disability in survivors of critical illness. Critical illness polyneuropathy, critical illness myopathy, and muscle atrophy from disuse contribute in various proportions to ICUAW. ICUAW is a clinical diagnosis supported by electrophysiology and newer diagnostic tests, such as muscle ultrasound. Risk factor red…
  • Prolonged Glucocorticoid Treatment in ARDS: Impact on Intensive Care Unit-Acquired Weakness. [Review]
    Front Pediatr 2016; 4:69Meduri GU, Schwingshackl A, Hermans G
  • Systemic inflammation and duration of immobilization are strong independent risk factors for the development of intensive care unit-acquired weakness (ICUAW). Activation of the pro-inflammatory transcription factor nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) results in muscle wasting during disuse-induced skeletal muscle atrophy (ICU bed rest) and septic shock. In addition, NF-κB-mediated signaling plays a signifi…
  • [Individualised care plan during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. A clinical case]. [Case Reports]
    Enferm Intensiva 2016 Apr-Jun; 27(2):75-80Call Mañosa S, Pujol Garcia A, … de Haro López C
  • An individualised care plan is described for a woman diagnosed with pneumonia, intubated, and on invasive mechanical ventilation, who was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). A nursing care plan was designed based on Marjory Gordon functional patterns. The most important nursing diagnoses were prioritised, using a model of clinical reasoning model (A…
