A Randomized, Controlled Clinical Trial Comparing Efficacy, Safety and Cost Effectiveness of Lornoxicam with Diclofenac Sodium in Patients of Osteoarthritis Knee (Original Work) (Report)

INTRODUCTION Osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative condition affecting joints including articular cartilage and subchondral bone. Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness and locking of affected joint and sometimes joint cavity effusion. In majority, large joints of human body are affected more than smaller joints (1). Among these larger joints, knee joint is most commonly […]

Safety and Efficacy of Procedural Sedation and Analgesia (PSA) Conducted by Medical Officers in a Level 1 Hospital in Cape Town (Original Articles) (Report)

Procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA) is a skill commonly required when dealing with patients in the emergency department (ED). Typical procedures performed under PSA in the ED or minor theatre setting are reduction of fractures and common dislocations, incision and drainage of abscesses, laceration repair in children, foreign body removal, and evacuation of retained products […]

Linking Joint Commission Inpatient Core Measures and National Patient Safety Goals with Evidence.

Linking Joint Commission Inpatient Core Measures and National Patient Safety Goals with Evidence.

The Joint Commission’s core measures serve as a national, standardized performance measurement system providing assessments of care delivered in given focus areas (1-3). The current set of hospital-based Joint Commission core measures represents the results of a stepwise development process including input from multiple stakeholders (clinicians, hospitals, consumers, medical societies), a testing/validation phase, and alignment […]

Serial Assessment of Biochemical Parameters of Red Cell Preparations to Evaluate Safety for Neonatal Transfusions (Report)

Serial Assessment of Biochemical Parameters of Red Cell Preparations to Evaluate Safety for Neonatal Transfusions (Report)

Red blood cells (RBC) are ideally suited to their primary function i.e., transport of oxygen from lungs to the tissues and carbon dioxide from the tissues to lungs. In neonates, RBC transfusion therapy is required in various clinical situations. During the first week of life, neonates experience a decline of RBCs caused by both physiologic […]
