    Description: A recent Cochrane systematic review examined whether general health checks in adults have a positive effect on morbidity or mortality. The review included 14 randomized trials with follow-up periods ranging from one to 22 years; nine provided mortality data. A health check was defined as a health care visit at which tests were conducted to screen for more than one disease or risk factor in more than one organ system; the check could occur once or multiple times. The nine studies documenting mortality reported 11,940 deaths among 155,899 people. The data suggested that general health checks had no effect on mortality. Similarly, no effect was noted when specific causes of death, such as cancer or cardiovascular disease, were analyzed. Events related to morbidity, such as heart disease, were rarely reported; the data showed that health checks didn't improve morbidity, either. Adapted from the source document.

    Description: Catheter-hub contamination is one of the five primary causes of central catheter infection. A recent study evaluated the use of disinfection caps in luer access valves to decrease bacterial contamination and infection rates. The caps contained a sponge saturated with 70% isopropyl alcohol affixed to the catheter hub. The researchers measured contamination rates in blood samples taken from the intraluminal catheter space of peripherally inserted central venous catheters, as well as central line-associated bloodstream infections among patients with any central venous catheter.

    Description: Forensically trained nurses often treat sexual assault survivors. They're responsible for identifying genital injuries, and their documentation of those injuries is often used during legal proceedings. The authors of a recent literature review sought to examine whether it can be determined that female genital injuries are a result of consensual or nonconsensual intercourse. The review included only 13 articles. In the eight studies that examined nonconsensual sex, genital injury occurred at frequencies ranging from 20% to 81%, with the highest rate in women who experienced forced digital penetration.

    Description: The Department of Veterans Affairs Health System (VA) recently restructured its primary care delivery system so that nurse case managers can be used to help patients transition from the hospital to their homes. Building on this structure, a VA hospital in Wisconsin created the Coordinated-Transitional Care (C-TraC) program to facilitate smooth transitions and reduce repeated hospitalizations.

    Description: Although digoxin is commonly used for rate control in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), it has been linked to greater mortality. To evaluate this relationship, the authors of a recent retrospective study examined data from the Atrial Fibrillation Follow-up Investigation of Rhythm Management (AFFIRM) trial. The AFFIRM trial involved 4,060 patients with AF who were at high risk for stroke; 39% were women, and 27% had heart failure. Overall, 69% received digoxin; the median duration of digoxin therapy was 32 months. Many patients also received -blockers and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors. A total of 666 patients died during a mean follow-up of 3.5 years. Of those patients, 56% were taking digoxin at their last follow-up visit. Adapted from the source document.
