Learning Central

Experience in this field, in addition to a better understanding of pathophysiologic characteristics of the immature brain, has taught us that an increased precision in assessing central nervous system function in the neonate is compatible with a simplification of the clinical instrument. The complete procedure takes approximately 5 minutes. A simple 0, 1, and 2 scoring system is proposed. Because this coding system is not quantitative, any computation of quotient or total score is inappropriate. Rather, a final synthesis based on clusters of signs and symptoms is advisable. A distinct final synthesis is proposed for term newborn infants in the first week of life and for preterm neonates at approximately 40 weeks of age corrected. Clinical profiles emerging from repeated assessments in the term newborn and early clinical findings indicating a brain damage of prenatal origin are described. Interrater reliability has been proved to be more than satisfactory. Such an assessment is useful for any newborn infant in maternity wards or for any preterm infant approximately 40 weeks of age, with or without abnormal imaging findings.

Communication and Documentation Communication Clear communication is imperative in the health care environment and occurs between various individuals on a daily basis by way of verbal, non-verbal and written communication. Communication is essentially the activity of relaying information, expressing emotions and building relationships Smallwood, Students lack experience in communicating with physicians and other healthcare providers. SBAR is a communication technique and stands for: What is the situation?

Why are you calling the physician?

Creating Checks for Learning Checks for Learning align closely with what we want students to learn in the course. A deliberate system of assessments gives us “eyes” on how the desired learning is happening and yields information that can tell us how our teaching could be improved.

You may have experienced one of these employment personality tests yourself after filling out an online job application. After entering information relevant to the job, you were asked to answer between 50 and questions about yourself, many of which required you to agree or disagree with various statements that had little to do with the job you applied for. You may have been confused as to what some of these questions were actually trying to find out or why you were being asked to complete a personality test in the first place.

This is not true. If this were the case, why would employers waste their time and yours giving you an assessment test as part of the screening process? There are right answers on an employment personality test—the ones that will help you get the job. There are also wrong answers—the ones that will remove you from the applicant pool. To understand what those answers are, we need to look at what most job personality tests are looking for.

The company Psychometric Success, which sells books designed to help job seekers pass employment assessment tests , has identified these as traits employers find very undesirable:

Resident Rotations Obstetrics Residents manage all aspects of obstetrical care including antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum evaluation and management. There is in-house faculty available 24 hours a day in charge of supervision. Residents attend all vaginal and cesarean deliveries while on the floor. Residents also play a role in teaching medical students on the rotation the aspects of normal obstetric care.

The extent of involvement by residents during surgery is determined by the complexity of the case and the resident’s skill level. The setting of the program allows for a large volume and variety of cases. By their 4th year, residents are expected to be dexterous in performing minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, and complex robotic cases.

Residents on the GYN rotation also attend inpatient and ER consults, effectively learning how to manage routine GYN emergencies, under faculty supervision. Reproductive Endocrinology The Reproductive Endocrinology rotation is carried out at SIUs Fertility Center, where residents actively engage in the management of the infertile couple. Residents are exposed to the entire spectrum of the field:

Lesson 9 A newborn baby requires resuscitation, and you have begun positive pressure ventilation and chest compressions. Which 3 signs are used to evaluate the effectiveness of your actions and the need to continue some aspect of support? A Heart rate, Respirations, and assessment of oxygen B Heart rate, Respirations, and muscle tone C Saturation, grimace, flexion D Strong cry, muscle tone, grimace A Heart rate, Respirations, and assessment of oxygen Which statement describes the best practice when using a pulse oximeter?

What concentration of oxygen should be used in the resuscitation of this preterm baby? A Always use a different approach for newborn than you would for adults and children B Only doctors are able to make ethical decisions for a newborn C The approach to decisions in the newborn should be guided by the same principles as used in adults and older children C The approach to decisions in the newborn should be guided by the same principles as used in adults and older children You have determined that a baby needs resuscitation at birth.

Real-time scanners had rather standard appearance, sizes and fabrication. They are usually portable on 4 wheels with the monitor on the top of the console and rows of receptacles at the bottom to accomodate a variety of scanner probes. See some of these scanners here. By the mid s curvilinear or convex abdominal transducers have come into the market which have a better fit to the Obstetric abdomen and have a wider field of view further from the transducer face. Curvilinear arrays have completely replaced the linear configuration by the late s.

Prior to the s, B-scan ultrasound images made steady progress in resolution and quality, but the improvements were not dramatic and except for a few really top-end brands, most had felt that images in the late s did not have significant improvements over those in the early 80s. During this period, techiques for resolution and overall image enhancement centered around:

New charts for ultrasound dating of pregnancy and assessment of fetal growth: Correct assessment of gestational age and fetal growth is essential for optimal obstetric management. The objectives of this study were, first, to develop charts for ultrasound dating of pregnancy based on crown-rump length and biparietal diameter and, second, to derive reference curves for normal fetal growth based on biparietal diameter, head circumference, transverse cerebellar diameter, abdominal circumference and femur length from 10 weeks of gestational age onwards.

A total of pregnant women were included for analysis in this population-based prospective cohort study.
