The difficult airway: A safe extubation strategy.

Laura Viguera Fernandez, Pedro Charco Mora, Lucia Gallego Ligorit et al.

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.3.412

During the last years, different algorithms have been developed for the treatment of a difficult airway, which besides the development of new technologies such as video laryngoscopy, have improved the results in the treatment of these patients. However, all of it has not had beneficial repercussions on the complications derived from extubation, especially in difficult patients, who remain in a third of the total complications related to the control of the airway, reaching a mortality rate of 5%. We all know the clinical criteria for extubation in a patient. However, it is mandatory to have previously established an adequate strategy to perform a safe extubation for our patient, especially if it was difficult to intubate.

PREVALENCE ALTERATION OF DOPPLER UTERINE ARTERIES BETWEEN WEEK 20 – 24 OF GESTATION IN LOW RISK POPULATION

Linda Patricia L. Meléndez Pérez, Monica Andrea Beltran Avendaño

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.2.394

Abstract: In Colombia, patients classified as obstetric low risk have maternal or fetal adverse outcomes like pathologies associated with the alteration in placentation and Doppler of uterine arteries (DUA) is a useful method to predict complications derived from inadequate placentation. We decided to evaluate the prevalence alteration of DUA between week 20 and 24 of gestation in low-risk obstetric patients in Bucaramanga and its metropolitan area. We did a prospective cross-sectional study on this population and we report the result in 120 patients that were between 18 and 35 years old. There was an abnormality IP in 15.0% (18) of the patients (95% CI from 9.1% to 22.7%), of the IR in 25.0% (30) (95% CI from 17.3% to 33.7%) and presence of Notch in 10.8% (13) (95% CI from 5.9% to 17.8%). Of 18 (15.0%) patients who had impaired PI 2 had normal RI and the Notch was absent in 6. The three parameters were altered in 11 (9.2%) patients.

ECOGRAPHIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE POST CAESAREAN SECTION SCAR IN THE LOWER UTERINE SEGMENT IN NON-PREGNANT PATIENTS

Nataly Negrette, Jackeline Jaimes

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.2.391

SUMMARY: with the increase in the rate of cesarean sections, more women experience long-term effects, because more than half develop a defect in the scar after a cesarean section. These defects are related to abnormal bleeding, dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, subfertility and obstetric problems. Evaluate by transvaginal ultrasound the post-cesarean scar in the lower uterine segment in non-pregnant patients and explore the possible factors involved in the healing of the cesarean, the development of scar defects and their association with gynecological symptoms. Our results are similar to those reported in the literature. The RM and the percentage of RM are maintained as important factors in determining the healing of a cesarean. The distance of the scar to the (ICO) a protective factor for the formation of defects, as the elective cesarean is associated with anomalous scars.

CARDIAC ARREST IN A POSTOPERATIVE CARE UNIT. LITERATURE REVIEW OF PULMONARY PERIOPERATIVE CRITICAL SITUATIONS

Carlos Andres C. Cortes Samaca, Carla Andrea Puche Cogollo et al.

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.2.386

Cardiac arrest secondary to postoperative pulmonary complications is the second most frequent cause of mortality, and they are often underestimated. A review of the literature was made. We describe the main risk factors for postoperative pulmonary complications, the diagnosis and initial management of the main pulmonary complications such as hypoxemia, hypercapnia, laryn-gospasm, bronchospasm, bronchoaspiration and residual neuromuscular relaxation. El paro cardiaco perioperatorio secundario a complicaciones pulmonares transoperatorias es la segunda causa de mortalidad, y con frecuencia son subestimada.

Search for synthetic and natural substances with in vitro bioactivity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Maria-Fernanda Moreno , Wellman Ribón

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.1.380

tuberculosis (TB) is still considered as an important worldwide health problem. For this reason, national and international health agencies encourage the researchers to improve and strengthen the control strategies and disease treatment. Currently, there have been important advances in the discovery and development of drugs that probably will be included in the standard scheme of anti-TB treatment, however for many of the current treatments, there have been resistant strains reported and even worst for most of the new treatments resistance is expected, making it necessary to maintain a continuous search for treatment alternatives.

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.1.377

This single case study aims to analyse the case of a patient suffering panic disorder, accompanied by a recurrent depressive disorder. As a treatment, therapies based on empirical evidence were used. During the evaluation phase, a symptoms severity scale for panic disorder, a depression inventory from Beck, 1979 and a clinical interview were used; additionally, therapeutic targets were proposed, and panic cognitive therapy was applied; the therapy was developed during 17 treatment sessions, where the techniques of psychoeducation, cognitive restructuring, relaxation and interceptive exposure were used; At the end of the treatment there was a significant decrease in the symptoms of panic, anxiety and depression that helped to improve the overall conditions of the patient. When comparing the results obtained after the treatment process, the results show congruencies with the available literature.

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.4.6.367

INTRODUCTION: tuberculosis (TB) is still considered as an important worldwide health problem. For this reason, national and international health agencies encourage the researchers to improve and strengthen the control strategies and disease treatment. Currently, there have been important advances in the discovery and development of drugs that probably will be included in the standard scheme of anti-TB treatment, however for many of the current treatments, there have been resistant strains reported and even worst for most of the new treatments resistance is expected, making it necessary to maintain a continuous search for treatment alternatives. OBJECTIVE: determine the in vitro antimycobacterial activity of 15 synthetic molecules, 14 essential oils and 6 extracts from endemic plants growing in the department of Santander, Colombia.
