Clinical Focus Volume 6 N3

Volume 10 Issue 2 - 2016

A tumultuous year so far for UK generally and the NHS in particular. Against most of the predictions the EU referendum was a win for the exit camp. This will have major effects on healthcare delivery, both directly and indirectly.  

Abstract

Antibiotics were one of the most important discoveries last century. As with all drugs, however, they are associated with adverse effects. This article reviews how inappropriate antibiotic prescribing not only fails to cure an infected patient; it may encourage overgrowth of resistant pathogens that ultimately threaten future management of sepsis.

Abstract

This review aims to cover the epidemiology, pathophysiology, symptoms/signs and management options (including when to refer) of common hand conditions presenting to primary care. These include: triggering; ganglions; base of thumb arthritis; carpal tunnel syndrome; Dupuytren’s disease and De Quervain’s tenosynovitis.
