  • A somnolent woman in her fifties with acute circulatory failure. [Journal Article]
    Tidsskr Nor Laegeforen 2019; 139(9)Viland J, Langørgen J, Wendelbo Ø
  • CONCLUSIONS: Flecainide blocks sodium channels in cardiomyocytes. Intoxication with flecainide is rare, with mortality rates of about 10 %. Sodium bicarbonate in larger doses has been reported to stabilise patients with flecainide intoxication due to modification of the binding of flecainide to sodium receptors in cardiomyocytes, and due to alkalisation which makes flecainide detach from sodium receptors. Our patient had a temporary effect with narrowing of QRS complexes after receiving sodium bicarbonate. She also showed a beneficial effect from implantation of a temporary pacemaker, although earlier case reports have described problems with high thresholds and capture failure.
  • Women's perspectives on the management and consequences of hyperemesis gravidarum - a descriptive interview study. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite the high psychosocial burden and major impact on daily activities, many women with HG reported a lack of support from healthcare professionals and suboptimal management. Greater awareness and knowledge among healthcare professionals is needed to improve care for women with HG. Key Points There is a paucity of studies on management and the consequences of HG on women's daily lives and psychosocial burden. We found that: • Many women described HG as one of their worst life experiences with profound morbidity. • Many women reported suboptimal management of HG and lack of support from healthcare professionals. • Greater understanding of patient perspectives among healthcare professionals is important to improve care and management for HG patients.
