Postpartum Depression For Mothers With Early Fetal Death Or Stillbirths, Callie Goldman 2022 Kennesaw State University

Postpartum Depression For Mothers With Early Fetal Death Or Stillbirths, Callie Goldman

Symposium of Student Scholars

Background: Many times, prevention of early fetus death and stillbirths is possible; however, some mortality events are spontaneous or unavoidable. While existing research reveals the likelihood of postpartum depression for mothers following birth, few studies address the potential for postpartum depression of mothers of stillbirth or demised fetuses. The purpose of this study is to determine how mothers can be better prepared for the hardship of losing a baby during childbirth, while going through common difficulties, such as postpartum depression, following birth. Methods: A mixed method approach will be conducted to gather qualitative (interview) and quantitative (Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale …

Severe Lower Extremity Trauma In Ontario: A Linked Population-Based Analysis, Stephanie M. Kim

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Open tibia fractures (OTF) are a management challenge. Admission to a trauma center (TC) and a coordinated approach to bony fixation and soft-tissue reconstruction (STR) have been shown to improve outcomes. The objective of this study was to describe patients who had OTF in Ontario and analyze their outcomes. Linked population data pertaining to patients who had OTF between the years 2009-2020 were examined. Demographic information, admission location, and management course were collected. 4240 patients were found. The mean age was 47, and majority were males. Patients admitted to TC had greater proportion of having Injury Severity Score >15, and …


Early And Progressive Mobility: A Program Implementation Strategy For High Acuity Patient Care Locations, Stefani Poland 2022 University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences

Early And Progressive Mobility: A Program Implementation Strategy For High Acuity Patient Care Locations, Stefani Poland

Student Scholarly Projects

Despite an increase in the promotion of early progressive mobility, its decrease in hospital-acquired complications and improvement of patient outcomes, there remains a reluctance in staff commitment to daily evaluation and implementation. This is largely due to the fact nurses or other interprofessional staff are the primary individuals responsible for this change in process. A lack of confidence in staff to correctly identify patients that meet criteria and anxiety regarding the safe transfer or mobilization of patients, particularly in high acuity settings have been identified as major barriers. The PICOT question that guided this program development of a CBO toolkit …

Patient Experience Journal

Different types of medical imaging are increasingly being used to explain specific aspects of injuries to patients during consultations. However, there are no validated questionnaires available yet that specifically measure patients’ satisfaction with the use of such images. The objective of this study was to develop and evaluate a patient-centred measure of satisfaction with the use of medical imaging modalities in clinical treatment. A preliminary 22-item version of the Questionnaire for Patient Satisfaction with Imaging (QPSI) was developed based on extant literature and interviews with trauma patients. Final item selection and psychometric evaluations were conducted amongst a sample of 106 …

Limb Amputations; Etiopathogenesis, Diagnosis And The Multidisciplinary Therapeutic Approach, Vlad Denis Constantin, Bogdan Socea, Bogdan Severus Gaspar, Dragos Epistatu, Ioana Paunica, Anca Silvia Dumitriu, Stana Paunica, Adrian Silaghi

Journal of Mind and Medical Sciences

Despite remarkable advances in medicine, limb amputations remain a therapeutic measure that saves the lives of many patients. Given the varied etiopathogenesis, such operations are performed both as an emergency and as an elective procedure. Such interventions address either only the distal segments of a limb, or even the entire limb, having a great psychological, functional and social impact on the patient. Due to these multiple implications, limb amputations must be performed by specialized teams, in order to achieve the best possible functional and aesthetic results to be compatible with the correction of the remaining deficit with a prosthesis. The …

Does Vehicle Intrusion Alone Still Predict Injury: A Retrospective Analysis Of Mechanism As Trauma Activation Criteria, Harrison Travis, Sarah Muramoto, Alison Smith, John Hunt, Lance Stuke, Patrick Greiffenstein, Jonathan Schoen, Alan Marr

Medical Research Day

Background: Current Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Guidelines for ‘Field Triage of Injured’ recommend patients involved in automobile collisions with greater than 12 inches of intrusion on the driver side or 18 inches on the passenger compartment should meet criteria for trauma activations. However, previous studies suggest that mechanism-of-injury (MOI) criteria only is a moderate predictor for patients who require trauma center resources given the introduction of “crumple zones” to cars. Crumple zones have been incorporated into modern vehicle design as a safety feature. The objective of this study was to determine if vehicle intrusion alone as MOI criteria necessitates …

Gunshot Wound To The Chest With Retained Epicardial Bullet., Toba Bolaji, Abuoma C Ekpendu, Frederick Giberson

Transitional Year

Gunshot wounds remain the most common cause of penetrating injuries in children and adolescents and the second leading cause of death among youth in the United States. Penetrating cardiac injuries carry a significantly increased mortality rate. The extent of damage caused depends on the type of firearm, the bullet used, the velocityand the trajectory. Therefore, rapid diagnosis and treatment is of the utmost importance. We report a case of a 19-year-old boy who presented to ouremergency department (ED) after sustaining a gunshot wound (GSW) to the right chest. In the ED, the patient was stabilized and a large hematoma was …

Stop The Stroke: An Analysis Into The Role Of Gender And Pmh In Stroke Symptom Recognition​, Shuaibahmed M. Arab, Kelsey Baker

MEDI 8127 Scholarly Activities Pre-Clerkship

A cerebral vascular accident, also known as a stroke, is an event in which blood flow to a brain region is disrupted. This disruption leads to loss of perfusion which results in brain tissue death.

The best combat against a stroke and its long-term effects/death is timely interventions. This requires quick symptom recognition by patients and presentation to an emergency department. However, stroke remains the 5th most common cause of CVD-related death. With an incidence of 40% across the United States, stroke events have been identified as an actionable goal by Healthy People 2030; with the goal of decreasing the …

Assessment Of Trauma-Informed Care Knowledge Among Caregivers In An Inpatient Mental Health Unit, Katie Rhea, Loni Conley, Jeremy Williams, Kathryn Wiltfong, Teresa Bigand

2022 Providence Nurse Research Conference

Background: Research suggests exposure to traumatic events is extremely common. Furthermore, risk of developing chronic health conditions or engaging harmful behaviors such as substance use later in life increases with more frequent exposure to traumatic events, especially during childhood. Best evidence recommends delivery of health care using a Trauma Informed Care (TIC) approach to improve outcomes such as anxiety or depression. This care approach guides healthcare providers on interactions with patients centered on the tenets of (1) safety, (2) trustworthiness, (3) peer support, (4) collaboration, (5) empowerment and choice, and (6) cultural, historical, and sex issues. On one inpatient …
