Use of intraaortic balloon counter pulsation in a patient with tortuous aorta
Chakravarthy Murali,Jawali Vivek
Annals of Cardiac Anaesthesia , 2008,
Abstract: The intraaortic balloon pulsation (IABP) catheter is commonly used to treat left ventricular failure. The abnormality of the descending thoracic and abdominal aorta is considered as a relative contraindication for its insertion. We present here a patient with acute myocardial infarction with a post-infarct ventricular septal defect who presented with left ventricular failure. During coronary angiography, tortuous abdominal aorta was noted and IABP catheter was inserted under fluoroscopic guidance to support the cardiovascular system. This case is reported to encourage discussion on the use of IABP catheters in patients with tortuous aorta and avoidance of events described.

The epinet data of four Indian hospitals on incidence of exposure of healthcare workers to blood and body fluid: A multicentric prospective analysis

Indian Journal of Medical Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: Background : Sharps injury (SI) and blood and body fluid exposure are occupational hazards to healthcare workers (HCWs). Although data from the developed countries have shown the enormity of the problem, data from developing countries, such as India, arelacking. Purpose : The purpose of this study was to cumulate data from fourmajor hospitals in India and analyze the incidence of SI and blood and body fluid exposure in HCWs. Materials and Methods : Four Indian hospitals (hospital A, B, C and D) from major cities of India participated in this multicentric study. Data ranging from 6 to 26 months were collected from these hospitals using Exposure Prevention Information network (EPINet) which is the database created by International Healthcare Worker Safety Research and Resource Center, University of Virginia. Results : Two hundred and forty-three sharp injuries and 22 incidents of blood or body fluid exposure were encountered in the cumulated 50 months of our study. The incidence of SIswas thehighestamong nurses (55%) of allthe HCWs, akin to the global data. An injury rate of nearly 20% among housekeeping staff seems to be specific to the Indian data. Patient′s room followed by operation theater appeared to be common locations of injury in our study. The source of the injury was identified in majority (64%) of the injuries. A major part of the group was not the primary users of the sharp (38%). Disposable needles caused nearly half of the injuries. Suture needles contributed to a reasonable number of injuries in one of the hospitals. Conclusions : The incidence of SI is the highest among nurses and the housekeeping staff (>30% each). A substantial number of injuries are avoidable.
