Complementary and alternative medicine among hospitalized pediatric patients( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: The use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is very common among hospitalized pediatric patients and is often overlooked by the medical staff. Teething and colic pain are the main indications for CAM use. CAM use is age related, the older the child the less the use. Abstract: Objectives: To estimate the prevalence and describe the characteristics of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use among hospitalized children, and to discover the awareness of medical staff regarding CAM use. Design/Setting: Parents of children aged 0-18 years admitted to the Pediatric Division at Assaf Harofeh Medical Center in Israel between January and July of 2015 (n = 146) were provided a questionnaire regarding socio-economic status and evaluating the CAM use. The medical charts of the participants were reviewed in order to establish whether or not CAM use was documented. Results: Of those who completed the questionnaire, 78 (54.3%) were using CAM. The major indications for CAM use were colic and teething. CAM use was advised by the family in 44.9%, physician 34.6%, pharmacist 34.6%, friends 30.8%, previous experience 23.1, advertisements 18%, nurses 6.4%, and homeopaths 2.6%. The family physician was aware of CAM use was in 42%. During the admission, only 5 patients were asked about CAM use (3.4%) by the medical staff. Reviewing the medical charts revealed there was no documentation of CAM use in any of the participants. Socio-demographic analysis of our population revealed no differences between users and non users of CAM, but significant differences in belief in CAM (p = 0.018) were found. CAM use was age related; the older the child the less the use (p = 0.010). Conclusion: CAM use is common among hospitalized pediatric patients and is often overlooked by the medical staff. CAM use should be included in the medical history
Use of Psychotropic Medications in Breastfeeding Women( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Background: Breastfeeding women who are prescribed with psychotropic medications on a regular basis are often concerned, regarding the possible implications of such treatment on the breastfed infant. A mother's well-being has a direct influence on the well-being of the baby. However, the notorious reputation of psychotropic medications may lead to suboptimal prescribing by the physician and poor adherence by the mother. Methods: A PubMed search (from 1976 through February 2017) was conducted for commonly used psychotropic drug classes, as well as individual medications commonly prescribed in these classes, along with the MeSH terms "breastfeeding"/"lactation". In each case, we chose studies that describe the pharmacokinetics of passage into breast milk and/or adverse effects in breastfed infants. Results: No large-scale controlled studies regarding the safety of psychotropic medications in breastfeeding mothers were reported. Based on case reports and small studies, most psychotropic medications produce low milk levels and low plasma levels in the infant, while serious adverse effects in the breastfed infant are rarely reported. Safety data for some psychotropic medications are still unavailable. Conclusion: According to the data available in the literature to date, most psychotropic medications are expected to produce low levels in breast milk with no clinical importance. Nevertheless, an individual risk-benefit assessment of a proposed treatment should always be performed, as inter-individual differences may have a substantial effect on the breastfeeding infant's response to the treatment. Further studies and additional objective data are needed to consolidate and improve our current knowledge of psychopharmacotherapy in breastfeeding women.

Drugs during pregnancy and lactation : treatment options and risk assessment by Christof Schaefer( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Drugs During Pregnancy and Lactation, 3rd Edition is a quick and reliable reference for all those working in disciplines related to fertility, pregnancy, lactation, child health and human genetics who prescribe or deliver medicinal products, and to those who evaluate health and safety risks. Each chapter contains twofold information regarding drugs that are appropriate for prescription during pregnancy and an assessment of the risk of a drug when exposure during pregnancy has already occurred. Thoroughly updated with current regulations, references to the latest pharmacological data, and new
Roxithromycin Pharmacokinetics in Hospitalized Geriatric Patients( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Background: Drug administration as tablets to debilitated elderly patients in crushed form can modify the pharmacokinetic characteristics of the active components. Only scarce information is available on the pharmacokinetics when administered in such form. The aim of this study was to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of roxithromycin administered in crushed form and to compare it with the pharmacokinetics of a group of geriatric patients receiving it in the conventional tablet form. Methods: Twenty patients from the acute ward of the Shmuel Harofeh Geriatric Medical Center in stable, clinical, and hemodynamic condition were studied. Patients in group 1 (n = 10) received medications orally in tablet form. Group 2 (n = 10) included age- and disease-matched patients from the same department, who received oral roxithromycin in crushed tablet form. The mean daily dose was the same in both groups: 300 mg (150 mg twice daily). The patients received the drug for 3 days before the initiation of the study. Blood samples for determination of the roxithromycin concentration were taken at the baseline, 1 hour before the drug administration, and at 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 10 hours after drug administration. Roxithromycin concentration was measured by a liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method. Results: Pharmacokinetic parameters of roxithromycin were significantly different between the 2 groups: the Cmin and Cmax were significantly higher, the tmax significantly longer, AUC0-10 larger, and CL/F smaller in group 2. Conclusions: Roxithromycin pharmacokinetic parameters were significantly different between the 2 patient groups resulting in higher drug serum concentrations in the crushed tablets group. The impact of the increased drug exposure is unclear
<> by Orna Nagawkar( Book )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Primary Objective: To examine the association between BFR's and health factors. Secondary Objectives: 1. Compare BFRs levels of firefighters (exposed) and general population (unexposed). 2. Examine the association between BFR's and general health status, including certain diseases, lipid profile, and thyroid function. 3. Among Firefighters, evaluate the association of BFRs levels and employment characteristics. -- From the Abstract
