Presentación

El paludismo sigue siendo un importante problema de salud en muchas partes del mundo. El retraso de su tratamiento, especialmente del causado por Plasmodium falciparum ̶ la especie del parásito que constituye la principal causa de las formas graves de la enfermedad ̶ puede ocasionar un deterioro rápido del estado del paciente y la aparición de varias complicaciones potencialmente mortales. Por tanto, diagnosticar y tratar con prontitud el paludismo no complicado resulta de vital importancia.
En la presente edición actualizada del manual sobre el tratamiento del paludismo grave se ofrecen orientaciones prácticas, nuevas o revisadas, sobre su diagnóstico y tratamiento. Después de exponer la atención general de enfermería que necesitan estos pacientes, se examinan sus posibles complicaciones, entre ellas el coma, las convulsiones, la anemia intensa, la hipoglucemia o el edema pulmonar, y se proporcionan consejos específicos y concisos sobre su tratamiento.
Aunque este manual se destina principalmente a los profesionales clínicos encargados de tratar a los pacientes con paludismo grave ingresados en hospitales u otros centros sanitarios de los países en los que el paludismo es endémico, también puede ser útil para los médicos de las zonas no endémicas, que se encuentran con cada vez más pacientes infectados durante sus visitas a zonas donde hay paludismo.

WORKPLACE INJURY COSTS JUST TIP OF THE ICEBERG by Internatioal SOS

WORKPLACE INJURY COSTS JUST TIP OF THE ICEBERG by Internatioal SOS
Did you know that the true costs of treating a workplace injury or illness are far higher than most companies realise, and poor case management can contribute significantly to these costs. 

The direct costs of treating a workplace injury or illness are just the tip of the iceberg. They form only about 20 per cent of a company’s total liability from workplace injuries, which, if managed poorly, can end up in the millions from indirect costs.

Companies are under increased pressure to reduce operating costs yet still increase productivity. Too often this can lead to increased injuries, unidentified injury patterns, or quick-fix solutions that actually end up costing companies more in the long run.”

International SOS encourages companies to understand the hidden costs of workplace injuries and review their own injury management processes

Workplace health and safety is more than just treating an injury once it’s happened or reducing recordable figures. It’s about prevention, identifying and rectifying recurring issues, and providing the right treatment when it’s needed to ensure a fast recovery and promoting a healthier and happier workforce.

Taking a preventative approach to injury and illness management is proven to reduce recordable injuries and lost time. In addition, having appropriate illness and injury case management in place saves money. 

An analysis of International SOS’ healthcare processes on a recent resources construction project in Queensland found a 15% decrease in TI claims, 21% decrease in Workcover claims and 30% decrease in client workers’ compensation costs.

World Wide Hospital Ships

World Wide Hospital Ships

Sometimes it is difficult to understand the scope of American military power relative to that of the rest of the world. This graphic illustrates America's Hospital Ships, and those of the rest of the world. Each image is an accurate depiction of the ship as seen from the side, all to a common scale.
Many centuries before our era, the Athenian fleet included a vessel called 'Therapia,' while in the Roman fleet was a ship bearing the name 'Aesculapius.' Their names have been taken by some authors as indicating that they were hospital ships. All we know with certainty is that at the beginning of the XVIIth century it became customary for naval squadrons to be accompanied by special vessels entrusted with the task of taking the wounded on board after each engagement. It was, however, not until the second half of the XIXth century that the practice really developed. During the Crimean War, more than 100,000 sick and wounded were repatriated to England on board hospital transports. Thereafter, no military expedition was ever undertaken without the necessary ships being assigned to evacuate soldiers from the combat area and give them the medical treatment they might require.
During the First World War, hospital ships were used to an increasing extent, despite the serious disputes and grave incidents which arose between the belligerents in this regard and to which we have already referred. In most instances, passenger liners were converted for use as medical transports. When the Second World War came, hospital ships specially designed for the purpose were built, and consequently the accommodation for patients was greatly improved. Because bases were far apart and hospitals on land in short supply in the Pacific war theater, the American forces brought into service ships which were really floating hospitals, able to give complete medical and surgical treatment.
The international legal definition of a Hospital Ship is found in "Convention (II) for the Amelioration of the Condition of Wounded, Sick and Shipwrecked Members of Armed Forces at Sea" done in Geneva, 12 August 1949. For brevity the second of the four Geneva Conventions done at that time is called "the Second Convention". Article 22 of this Convention states "Military hospital ships, that is to say, ships built or equipped by the Powers specially and solely with a view to assisting the wounded, sick and shipwrecked, to treating them and to transporting them, may in no circumstances be attacked or captured, but shall at all times be respected and protected, on condition that their names and descriptions have been notified to the Parties to the conflict ten days before those ships are employed. The characteristics which must appear in the notification shall include registered gross tonnage, the length from stem to stern and the number of masts and funnels." Article 41 stipulates that "Under the direction of the competent military authority, the emblem of the red cross on a white ground shall be displayed on the flags, armlets and on all equipment employed in the Medical Service. Nevertheless, in the case of countries which already use as emblem, in place of the red cross, the red crescent or the red lion and sun on a white ground, these emblems are also recognized by the terms of the present Convention."
And Article 43 requires that "All exterior surfaces shall be white. One or more dark red crosses, as large as possible, shall be painted and displayed on each side of the hull and on the horizontal surfaces, so placed as to afford the greatest possible visibility from the sea and from the air." The essential thing is that it should be as clear as possible that the vessel is a hospital ship. Similarly, the reference to "dark red" obviously does not mean that a ship on which the red crosses were of another shade would not be protected. This is merely a recommendation intended to increase the effective security of a floating hospital by providing a better colour contrast. It is clear from the records that the lack of an up-to-date system of marking, visible at a great distance, was the cause of most of the attacks made on hospital ships during the Second World War.
There is nonetheless no hard and fast precise definition of a "Hospital Ship" and some vessels listed on the Hospital Ship International (HSI) Fleet Registry are not included here, while some vessels included here are not on the HSI list. The HSI list is an attempt at a comprehensive inventory of medical / health care purpose vessels / craft that are flagged, registered, homeported and/or operate mainly under specific nations or organizations. Ths HSI list characterizes the Italian San Giorgio class small dock landing ships as "not technically a hospital ship this vessel was designed with the purpose of being if necessary converted rapidly into one especially for disaster relief(especially earthquakes)." But this is the case with all amphibious landing ships.
Currently, hospital ships may be conveniently partitioned into five types:
  1. YH - Hospital Launches - A number of countries -- including at least Bolivia, Brazil, Camaroon, Chile, Peru, and Thailand -- operate small Hospital Launches that provide medical assistance to local populations living on rivers or lakes. These riverine and lacustrine craft are not sea going, and may be operated by either the country's Navy or some other governmental department. Two of the Brazilian vessels carry the traditional green cross markings of a civilian hospital ship.
  2. AHL - Small Medical Support Ships - At least three countries - India, Indonesia, and Mexico - operate ocean-going military vessels that are equiped to provide humanitarian assistance medical services, while also serving a domestic sovereignty presence function. These ships do not primarily function as hospital ships, nor are they hospital ships under international law. Of these ships, the Indian and Mexican ships are neither white nor provided with distinctive markings. The Indonesia vessel is not white, and though it is marked by a large red cross, it is also armed, which disqualifies it from protection as a hospital ship under interntational law.
  3. APH - Personnel Transport, Evacuation - Three countries - Germany, the United Kingdom, and China - operate large multi-purpose amphibious support ships that can provide for both combat casualty evecuation and humanitarian assistance medical support. These ships do not primarily function as hospital ships, nor are they marked as hospital ships under international law.
  4. AH - Civilian Hospital Ships - There are currently two entirely civilian hospital ships. The Labor Ministry in Spain operates the Juan de la Cosa to support the Spanish fishing fleet at sea. And Mercy Ships International operates the non-governmental M/V Africa Mercy which provides medical assistance in ports of call in Africa.
  5. AH - Hospital Ships - Three countries - Russia, China, and the United States - currently operate Hospital Ships. The three Russian vessels of the Ob'b class have been largely inactive in recent years, though they have been proposed for commercial charter. The United States operates two very large hospital ships of the T-AH-19 Mercy class. In the 1990s China converted two or three Qiongsha-class Attack Transports into hospital ships, and may have recently purchased an Ob'-class ship from Russia. PLA's first new large Hospital Ship was launched in Guangzhou on 29 August 2007. In August 2008 the Type 920 Hospital ship was reported to have successfully conducted a sea trial. This is the world's second largest hospital ship, after the two American ships, providing China with a major new capability to support amphibious operations.

Rescue Robots at the Cutting EdgeThe most advanced rescue robot in Japan at the moment is Quince, unveiled in April 2010 by the Chiba Institute of Technology, Tohoku University, and IRS. Quince consists of a main body incorporating two wide crawler belts, and four free-moving pairs of wheels that extend like arms from the corners. Making full use of these body parts, the robot adeptly maneuvers its way around all kinds of terrain, from stairs to rubble. Resistant to dust and water, Quince is also able to rinse off quickly any dangerous polluting chemicals it encounters, making it a highly durable and practical robot. Quince is set to be loaned out to fire departments in Chiba and Kobe. Japanese rescue robots are quickly moving from the realm of research to the front line of disaster rescue operations.
The main purpose of the robots introduced above is information gathering, but the Tokyo Fire Department is also spearheading efforts to develop life-saving robots. One example is a remote-controlled rescue robot nicknamed Robocue, which debuted in 2009. Robocue runs on caterpillar treads and can pull a person into its body using a manipulator arm and conveyor belt. With a smaller and lighter body than its predecessors and added remote control, Robocue promises improved mobility and utility in disaster sites. (September 2010)
