Using social exchange theory to understand non-terminal palliative care referral practices for Parkinson's disease patients.

Related Articles Using social exchange theory to understand non-terminal palliative care referral practices for Parkinson’s disease patients. Palliat Med. 2017 Oct;31(9):861-867 Authors: Prizer LP, Gay JL, Perkins MM, Wilson MG, Emerson KG, Glass AP, Miyasaki JM Abstract BACKGROUND: A palliative approach is recommended in the care of Parkinson’s disease patients; however, many patients only receive this care in the form of hospice at the end of life. Physician attitudes about palliative care have been shown to influence referrals for patients with chronic disease, and negative physician perceptions may affect early palliative referrals for Parkinson’s disease patients. AIM: To use Social…

Predictive value of presuperior cavopulmonary anastomosis cardiac catheterization at increased altitude.

Related Articles Predictive value of presuperior cavopulmonary anastomosis cardiac catheterization at increased altitude. Congenit Heart Dis. 2018 Mar;13(2):311-318 Authors: Di Maria MV, Mulvahill M, Jaggers J, Ivy DD, Younoszai AK Abstract OBJECTIVE: Infants with single ventricle physiology typically undergo cardiac catheterization prior to superior cavopulmonary anastomosis (SCPA) to assess operative suitability. Predictors of poor outcome at sea level include elevated pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP), indexed pulmonary vascular resistance (PVRi), age <3 months, significant atrioventricular valve regurgitation, among others. Increased altitude has vasoconstrictive effects on the pulmonary vasculature, which may affect pre-SCPA hemodynamics and outcomes. The goal of this study was…

Hospice in heart failure: why, when, and what then?

Related Articles Hospice in heart failure: why, when, and what then? Heart Fail Rev. 2017 Sep;22(5):593-604 Authors: Spiess JL Abstract Hospice is a model of care for patients nearing the end of their lives that emphasizes symptom management, quality of life (QOL), and support of the patient and caregiving family through the death of the patient and the family’s bereavement. It is associated with high patient and caregiver satisfaction and appears to not shorten lifespan for appropriately referred patients. Patients with advanced heart failure are being referred to hospice care more often than in the past, but the majority of…

Chronic Critical Illness: The Limbo Between Life and Death.

Related Articles Chronic Critical Illness: The Limbo Between Life and Death. Am J Med Sci. 2018 03;355(3):286-292 Authors: Ruggiero RM Abstract The entity of chronic critical illness (CCI) has shown a rise in the past decades for popularity and prevalence. CCI is loosely defined as the group of patients who require the intensive care setting for weeks to months; its hallmark is prolonged mechanical ventilation. The outcomes of chronically critically ill patients have been dismal and have not improved over time; 1-year survival hovers at approximately 50%. Given the high mortality, prognostic variables are important when making medical decisions. CCI…
