CARDIAC SOUNDS AND MURMURS – PRACTICAL APPROACH

Teaching Assistant Bogdan A. Stana MD, PhD

2nd Pediatrics Clinic, „Gr. T. Popa” University of Medecine and Pharmacy, Iasi, ROMANIA

 

Auscultation is one of the golden-four elements of the clinical exam, along with inspection, palpation and percussion. Depending on anatomic location, auscultation can provide essential tips for diagnosis (positive and differential).
Cardiac auscultation offers lots of information about the status of the heart muscle, valves of the heart and the great vessels, turbulences made by the flow of blood in physiological and pathological conditions. It all begins with understanding the production of the cardiac sounds in the normal heart. Then, using the stethoscope and different techniques, pathological conditions can be clinically identified and discussed. From the practical point of view, a „trained ear” is prone to a faster identification and diagnosis of pathological conditions.

MAKING SENSE OF SPIROMETRY

Dr. Irina Alexandru MD

Allergy and Clinical Immunology

Spirometry is a diagnostic tool;  the most common of the lung function tests. It is used to detect airflow obstruction, which is a characteristic of certain lung diseases, such asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In these diseases, evaluating lung function with spirometry is important for diagnosis and monitoring, as recommended by most guidelines.

It can detect very subtle changes which may not be obvious on physical examination or even to the patient. Through routine spirometry, many abnormalities can be detected in the early stages, when treatment is usually most effective. Spirometry can also be used when testing the reversibility of the airways to a bronchodilator drug.

The workshop outcomes are for the students to learn why respiratory function tests may be required. The students will have the opportunity to receive training. During the practical session, we also hope to use the opportunity to ask the students to develop their communication skills by working in pairs or triads, using role play to ‘act out’ the patient/health care professional relationship.

THE ART OF MOLDING A DISABLE FOOT TO CREATE A NORMAL LIFE – PONSETI METHOD FOR CONSERVATIVE MANAGEMENT OF CONGENITAL CLUBFOOT 

Assistant Professor Carmen Iulia Ciongradi MD, PhD

Teaching Assistant Ioan Sârbu MD, PhD

Pediatric Surgery department, University of Medicine and Pharmacy „Grigore T. Popa” Iași

 

Congenital clubfoot (talipes equinovarus foot) is a well known and one of the most commonly referred problem in pediatric orthopedics, characterized by a complex three dimension malformation of the foot, in which one or both feet are excessively plantar flexed, with the forefoot swung medially and the sole facing inward. The congenital foot deformity affects the bones, muscles, tendons, and blood vessels of one or both feet. The prevalence of clubfoot is relatively high, 1 to 3 per 1000 live births in Caucasians. The treatment of clubfoot is still one of the big challenges in pediatric orthopedics. Clubfoot it’s a malformation known from the ancient time as it was identified in the wall paintings found in the ancient Egyptian tombs. Its treatment was described in India as early as 1000 B.C, but it was Hippocrates who gave us the first written description of the deformity, as well as the descriptions of the manipulative correction remarkably similar to current non-operative methods. Unfortunately, Hippocrates ideas and principles of conservative treatment in congenital club foot were apparently forgotten by next generations, and for centuries children bearing this malformation underwent different types of surgical procedures on the skeleton or muscles of the ankle and foot. Surgery in club foot is invariably followed by scarring, stiffness and muscle weakness. The modern era in the treatment of congenital clubfoot started with Kite’s work, completed by Ignacio Ponseti who developed a method of conservative treatment based on the understanding of the functional anatomy of the foot and of the biological response of bones, muscles and ligaments to gradually position changes by manipulations and casting. The aim of this workshop is to present the principles behind the conservative, modern treatment of congenital club foot. During our hands-on session students will have the opportunity to apply the Ponseti principles on training models (manipulations, casts, tenotomy bracing, etc). So let’s embrace together the delicate art of sculpture a normal foot from an abnormal one!

TIPS AND TRICKS IN ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHY:CLINICAL CASES

Mariana Floria Assistant Professor, MD, PhD
University of Medicine and Pharmacy „Gr. T. Popa” Iasi

How an electrocardiogram (ECG) is performed and how it is interpreted can lead sometimes to problems. Frequently ECGs could be interpreting in a non-threatening and simple way if step by step analyzing in clinical context is done. Sometimes surface ECG could be challenging without other data about clinical context and sometimes without biological or transthoracic echocardiography data. Therefore an integrative approach in these cases is essential. Sometimes timing and sequential interpretation is the key. The emergency physician should be aware of such issues so he does not embark on an unnecessary diagnostic or treatment pathway.

This workshop will be about some tricks and tips on surface ECGs presented during some clinical cases. They might be saving solution in life-threatening situations. In addition these cases will underlie the importance of data integration in clinical practice. This workshop will be about tachycardia with narrow and large QRS from differential diagnosis to treatment and from antiarrhythmic to proarrhythmic effect.

Also the ability of  the urothelium to  regenerate itself  very quickly, may lead to  scars with stenosis that might prevent normal urinary flow. The urine’s characteristics as a hyper-concentrated solution compel the choice of special suture material. Considering,  urological surgical techniques tend to be different from general surgical ones.  The students will have the opportunity to practice  pyeloplasty, ureteral reimplantation, knots and sutures on animal bladder and ureter. 
 MODERN AND CLASSIC IN RADIATION ONCOLOGY
Dragos Teodor Petru Iancu MD, PhD
University of Medicine and Pharmacy „Grigore T. Popa” Iași

Radiation therapy is a part of the multidisciplinary treatments for cancer. It uses high-energy particles or waves, such as x-rays, gamma rays, electron beams, or protons, to destroy or damage cancer cells. Radiation can be given alone or used with other treatments, such as surgery or chemotherapy. Oncological drugs can make  cells more sensitive to radiation. Using  advanced imaging technics  like CT, MRI and  PET-CT we can accurately locate the tumor volume and the  radiosensitive organs. Modern radiotherapy  technics allows us  to irradiate the tumor volume with higher doses in order  to kill malignant cells without major damage of healthy tissues. The aim of the workshop is to present  the  rolls of multidisciplinary team in  cancer patinent management and the patient pathway from the  initial consultation to the end of  the treatment in the radiotherapy department.  The students shall have the opportunity to identify and  delineate the radiosensitive anatomical structures and the  tumor target volumes using CT simulation.
