Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Adherence to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidelines in treatment of in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) have been associated with favourable patient outcome. The aim of this study was to evaluate if compliance with initial CPR guidelines and patient outcome of witnessed IHCA events were associated with the place of arrest defined as monitored versus non-monitored ward.

METHODS: A total of 956 witnessed IHCA events in adult patients at six hospitals during 2018 to 2019, were extracted from the Swedish Registry of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. Initial CPR guidelines were: ≤ 1 min from collapse to alert of the rapid response team, ≤ 1 min from collapse to start of CPR, ≤ 3 min from collapse to defibrillation of shockable rhythm.

RESULTS: The odds of compliance with guidelines was higher on monitored wards vs non-monitored wards, even after adjustment for factors that could affect staffing and resources. The place of arrest was not a significant factor for sustained return of spontaneous circulation, survival at 30 days, or neurological status at discharge, when adjusting for clinically relevant confounders. Compliance with initial CPR guidelines remained a significant factor for survival to 30 days and favourable neurological outcome at discharge regardless of other confounders.

CONCLUSION: Compliance with initial CPR guidelines was higher in witnessed IHCA events on monitored wards than on non-monitored wards, which indicates that healthcare professionals in monitored wards are quicker to recognize a cardiac arrest and initiate treatment. When initial CPR guidelines are followed, the place of arrest does not influence patient outcome.

Abstract [en]

Background: Approximately 2,500 in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) events are reported annually to the Swedish Registry of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (SRCR) with an estimated incidence of 1.7/1,000 hospital admissions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the compliance in reporting IHCA events to the SRCR and to compare reported IHCA events with possible non-reported events, and to estimate IHCA incidence.

Methods: Fifteen diagnose codes, eight Classification of Care Measure codes, and two perioperative complication codes were used to find all treated IHCAs in 2018-2019 at six hospitals of varying sizes and resources. All identified IHCA events were cross-checked against the SRCR using personal identity numbers. All non-reported IHCA events were retrospectively reported and compared with the prospectively reported events.

Results: A total of 3,638 hospital medical records were reviewed and 1,109 IHCA events in 999 patients were identified, with 254 of the events not found in the SRCR. The case completeness was 77% (range 55-94%). IHCA incidence was 2.9/1,000 hospital admissions and 12.4/1,000 admissions to intensive care units. The retrospectively reported events were more often found on monitored wards, involved patients who were younger, had less comorbidity, were often found in shockable rhythm and more often achieved sustained spontaneous circulation, compared with in prospectively reported events.

Conclusion: IHCA case completeness in the SRCR was 77% and IHCA incidence was 2.9/1,000 hospital admissions. The retrospectively reported IHCA events were found in monitored areas where the rapid response team was not alerted, which might have affected regular reporting procedures.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: When establishing Physical Employment Standards, validity is dependent on the correct identification and characterisation of critical job tasks.

OBJECTIVE: To develop and validate a standardised protocol for the identification, characterisation, and documentation of critical physical job tasks in military occupational specialities in the Swedish Armed Forces (SwAF), and propose a definition of critical physical job tasks for use in the SwAF.

METHODS: A protocol was drafted with three content domains, including a preliminary definition. Protocol content validity was iteratively assessed in two consecutive stages where ten subject experts rated relevance and simplicity. A consensus panel revised the protocol after each stage. Content validity index (CVI) was calculated as item-CVI (I-CVI) per each feature and as scale average (S-CVI/Ave) per content domain. Acceptable content validity thresholds were 0.78 and 0.90, respectively.

RESULTS: The validated protocol consisted of 35 items with an I-CVI≥0.90 and≥0.80 for relevance and simplicity, respectively. The S-CVI/Ave was 0.97 for relevance and 0.98 for simplicity. The protocol was language reviewed, reorganised for easy use, and approved by the consensus panel. The final protocol includes: background and aim of the protocol, the accepted generic and critical physical job task definitions, protocol instructions, subject expert-qualifications, job task source and characteristics.

CONCLUSION: A standardised protocol for identification and characterisation of critical job tasks in SwAF military occupational specialties was developed. The protocol content was rated relevant and simple by experts and will be of importance in future work establishing physical requirements in the SwAF.

Abstract [en]

Introduction

Chronic musculoskeletal pain is a highly prevalent, complex and distressing condition that may negatively affect all domains of life. In view of an active inference framework, and resting on the concept of allostasis, human movement per se becomes a prerequisite for health and well-being while chronic pain becomes a sign of a system unable to attenuate an allostatic load. Previous studies on different subgroups of chronic pain conditions have demonstrated alterations in gait kinematics and muscle activity, indicating shared disturbances in the motor system from long-term allostatic load. We hypothesise that such alterations exist in heterogenous populations with chronic musculoskeletal pain, and that exposure to acute and controlled exercise may attenuate these alterations. Therefore, the main aim of this study is to investigate the acute effects of exercise on gait kinematics and activity of the back and neck muscles during diverse walking conditions in patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain compared with a reference sample consisting of healthy participants.

Methods and analysis

This two-sample two-armed parallel randomised controlled laboratory trial will include 40 participants with chronic musculoskeletal pain (>3 months) and 40 healthy participants. Participants will be randomly allocated to either 30 min of aerobic exercise or rest. Primary outcomes are gait kinematics (walking speed, step frequency, stride length, lumbar rotation, gait stability) and muscular activity (spatial and temporal) of the back and neck during diverse walking conditions. Secondary outcomes are variability of gait kinematics and muscle activity and subjective pain ratings assessed regularly during the trial.

Ethics and dissemination

The study has been approved by the Regional Ethics Review Board in Uppsala, Sweden (#2018/307). Findings will be disseminated via conference presentations, publications in peer-reviewed journals and engagement with patient support groups and clinicians.

Abstract [en]

Background Pain increases the risk for cardiovascular diseases, including myocardial infarction (MI). However, the impact of pain on mortality after MI has not yet been investigated in large studies with long-term follow-up periods. Thus, we aimed to examine various levels of pain severity 1 year after an MI as a potential risk for all-cause mortality. Methods and Results We collected data from 18 376 patients, aged <75 years, who had a registered MI event during the period from 2004 to 2013 and with measurements of potential cardiovascular risk indicators at hospital discharge from the Swedish quality register SWEDEHEART (Swedish Web System for Enhancement and Development of Evidence-Based Care in Heart Disease Evaluated According to Recommended Therapies). Self-reported levels of experienced pain according to EuroQol-5 dimension instrument were recorded in secondary prevention clinics 1 year after hospital discharge. We collected all-cause mortality data up to 8.5 years (median, 3.4 years) after the 1-year visit. The Cox proportional hazard regression was used to estimate hazard ratio (HR) and 95% CI. Moderate pain and extreme pain were reported by 38.2% and 4.5%, respectively, of included patients. There were 1067 deaths. Adjusted HR was 1.35 (95% CI, 1.18-1.55) and 2.06 (95% CI, 1.63-2.60) for moderate and extreme pain, respectively. Pain was a stronger mortality predictor than smoking. Conclusions Pain 1 year after MI is highly prevalent, and its effect on mortality 1 year after MI was found to be more pronounced than smoking. Clinicians managing patients after MI should recognize the need to consider experienced pain when making prognosis or treatment decisions.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: The benefits of exercise in patients with knee osteoarthritis are well documented, but the optimal exercise dose remains unknown.

OBJECTIVE: To compare high-dose versus low-dose exercise therapy with regard to knee function, pain, and quality of life (QoL) in patients with long-term symptomatic knee osteoarthritis.

DESIGN: A Swedish and Norwegian multicenter randomized controlled superiority trial with multiple follow-ups up to 12 months after the intervention. (ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT02024126).

SETTING: Primary health care facilities.

PATIENTS: 189 patients with diagnosed knee osteoarthritis and a history of pain and decreased knee function were assigned to high-dose therapy (n = 98; 11 exercises; 70 to 90 minutes) or low-dose therapy (n = 91; 5 exercises; 20 to 30 minutes).

INTERVENTION: Patient-tailored exercise programs according to the principles of medical exercise therapy. Global (aerobic), semiglobal (multisegmental), and local (joint-specific) exercises were performed 3 times a week for 12 weeks under supervision of a physiotherapist.

MEASUREMENTS: The Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) was measured biweekly during the 3-month intervention period and at 6 and 12 months after the intervention. The primary end point was the mean difference in KOOS scores between groups at the end of the intervention (3 months). Secondary outcomes included pain intensity and QoL. The proportion of patients with minimal clinically important changes in primary and secondary outcomes was compared between groups.

RESULTS: Both groups improved over time, but there were no benefits of high-dose therapy in most comparisons. One exception was the KOOS score for function in sports and recreation, where high-dose therapy was superior at the end of treatment and at 6-month follow-up. A small benefit in QoL at 6 and 12 months was also observed.

LIMITATION: There was no control group that did not exercise.

CONCLUSION: The results do not support the superiority of high-dose exercise over low-dose exercise for most outcomes. However, small benefits with high-dose exercise were found for knee function in sports and recreation and for QoL.

Abstract [en]

Introduction Attitudes towards cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) among in-hospital healthcare professionals (HCPs) are poorly understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate attitudes towards CPR situations among in-hospital HCPs and assess associations with potential influencing factors. Materials and methods A questionnaire was distributed to 3,085 HCPs in 2009 and 2,970 HCPs in 2015–2016. The associations of influencing factors were analyzed using binary logistic regression. Results In the event of a possible cardiac arrest situation, 61% of the HCPs would feel confident in their CPR knowledge, 86% would know what to do, and 60% would be able to take command if necessary. In the latest real-life CPR situation, 30% had been worried about making mistakes or causing complications, 57% had been stressed, and 27% had been anxious. A short time since the latest real-life CPR performance and a high number of previous real-life CPR performances were associated with lower odds of worrying about making mistakes/causing complications, lower odds of feeling stressed or anxious, and higher odds of feeling calm. Regardless of previous real-life CPR experience, there were differences in attitudes between groups of professions, where physicians showed increased odds of worrying about making mistakes/causing complications and nurses showed increased odds of stress. Working on a non-monitored ward meant increased odds of stress and worrying about making mistakes/causing complications. Twelve months or more having passed since the latest CPR training course was associated with increased odds of anxiety. Conclusions Despite HCPs’ generally positive attitudes towards performing CPR in the event of a possible cardiac arrest situation, feelings of stress and anxiety were common in real-life CPR situations. Regular CPR training among all HCPs is a key factor to maintain competence and reduce anxiety. The possible effects of attitudes on performing CPR need to be studied further.

Abstract [en]

Background and aims: *Low physical health is one consequence that chronic pain encompasses. To improveeffectiveness of Interdisciplinary pain rehabilitation programs (IPRP) theeVISualisation of physical activity and pain (eVIS) intervention was developed. Thepurpose of this study was to evaluate eVIS validity by the aspects of content validityand clinical feasibility in IPRP-context.Methods: *This observational study was performed in 3 phases. Twenty-two field experts (patients,caregivers, researchers) participated, and provided quantitative scores and qualitativecomments on eVIS and its included elements (data collection, visualization,communication). In phase 1, ratings on a four-point Likert scale of each element´scontent validity (relevance, simplicity, safety) were collected through digitalquestionnaires. Three iterative assessment loops were completed, each followed byconsensus panel protocol revisions. Item-level content validity index (I-CVI), averageand overall CVI were calculated, and free-text comments were analyzed. In phase 2,ratings of content validity and elements’ clinical feasibility categorized in 5 focus areas(acceptability, demand, implementation, limited efficacy, practicality), were collectedfrom patients and caregivers after 2-3 weeks test trial. Phase 3 involved follow-up focusgroup interview with caregivers on specific ratings, as well as interviews with expertsin clinical pain management pharmacology.Results: *CVI for relevance, simplicity and safety improved over time and were all rated abovecut-off (0.78). Revisions were mainly made in the visualization element. In phase 2,participants rated eVIS as relevant and feasible to use in clinical IPRP-context.Conclusions: *Patients, caregivers, and researchers found eVIS valid in IPRP-context. Methodicalvalidation was essential to ascertain eVIS’ substantiality before clinical trial.
