Are We Monitoring Urine Output for the Surgical Patients in Ward Settings While Indicated or Planned?

Ramprasad Rajebhosale, Mohammad Miah, Daniel Centea, Cindy Cleto, Rabia Yusuf, Prabhu Ravi, Rajesh Paul, Najam Husain, Pradeep Thomas
Introduction: Early recognition of acute kidney injury (AKI), better understanding of its pathogenesis, and development of preventing strategies appear to be potential areas of improvement of patient’s prognosis. The decrease of glomerular filtration rate and urine output in response to a decrease of renal blood flow is classically referred as pre-renal azotaemia, which can evolve into structural damage if renal hypoperfusion persists. In this line, urine output often is used as a marker of AKI ...

Reversing Back to the Basic: Infection Control Strategies

Mohammad Miah, Syeda Nafisa, Tara Bartley, Sandeep Kaur, Ahmed Ashoub
Healthcare-associated infections are estimated to cost the NHS approximately £1 billion a year. In addition to increased costs, each one of these infections means additional use of NHS resources, greater patient discomfort and a decrease in patient safety. In the wake of the growing burden of healthcare- associated infections (HCAIs), the increasing severity of illness and complexity of treatment, superimposed by multi-drug resistant (MDR) pathogen infections, healthcare practitioners (HCPs) are...

Preoperative Management of Antiplatelet Agents for CABG Surgery Patients: A Prospective Cohort Study Focused on P2Y12 Inhibitors

Mohammad Miah, Syeda Nafisa, Liam Phelan, Sandeep Kaur, Mostafa Mehann, Ahmed Ashoub
Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) using aspirin and ticlopidine, a thienopyridine P2Y12 inhibitor, was introduced, decreasing the rate of stent thrombosis to about 1%. Continuation of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) until Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) increases the risk of excessive perioperative bleeding, transfusions, and re-exploration for bleeding as shown in RCTs observational studies and metanalyses. Therefore, it is recommended that the P2Y12 inhibitor should be discontinued wheneve...

Referring Patients with Iron Deficiency Anaemia to Colorectal Surgery under the Two-Week Wait Rule

Mohammad Miah, Humayra Begum, Fraser Currie, Thomas Wild, Mohamad Al Saramigy
Asymptomatic colonic and gastric carcinoma may present with IDA (Iron deficiency anaemia), and seeking these conditions is a priority in patients with IDA. One of the criteria under the Two-Week Referral (TWR) rule for suspected GI malignancy is iron deficiency anaemia (IDA). Although IDA is a good marker for gastrointestinal cancer, sometimes 2WW referral guidelines are not being followed appropriately for IDA. This not only has considerable workload and financial implications but also invasive...
