161. Decision Aids for Advance Care Planning: An Overview of the State of the Science. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Decision Aids for Advance Care Planning: An Overview of the State of the Science. Advance care planning honors patients' goals and preferences for future care by creating a plan for when illness or injury impedes the ability to think or communicate about health decisions. Fewer than 50% of severely or terminally ill patients have an advance directive in their medical record, and physicians are accurate only about 65% of the time when predicting patient preferences for intensive care. Decision (...) aids can support the advance care planning process by providing a structured approach to informing patients about care options and prompting them to document and communicate their preferences. This review, commissioned as a technical brief by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Effective Health Care Program, provides a broad overview of current use of and research related to decision aids for adult advance care planning.

169. Amplification with hearing aids for patients with tinnitus and co-existing hearing loss. (Abstract)

Amplification with hearing aids for patients with tinnitus and co-existing hearing loss. Tinnitus is described as the perception of sound or noise in the absence of real acoustic stimulation. In the current absence of a cure for tinnitus, clinical management typically focuses on reducing the effects of co-morbid symptoms such as distress or hearing loss. Hearing loss is commonly co-morbid with tinnitus and so logic implies that amplification of external sounds by hearing aids will reduce (...) perception of the tinnitus sound and the distress associated with it.To assess the effects of hearing aids specifically in terms of tinnitus benefit in patients with tinnitus and co-existing hearing loss.We searched the Cochrane Ear, Nose and Throat Disorders Group Trials Register; the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL); PubMed; EMBASE; CINAHL; Web of Science; Cambridge Scientific Abstracts; ICTRP and additional sources for published and unpublished trials.

Sleep clinical record: an aid to rapid and accurate diagnosis of paediatric sleep disordered breathing Overnight polysomnography (PSG) is an expensive procedure which can only be used in a minority of cases, although it remains the gold standard for the diagnosis of sleep disordered breathing (SDB). The objective of this study was to develop a simple, PSG-validated tool to screen SDB, thus reducing the use of PSG. For every participant we performed PSG and a sleep clinical record was completed (...) . The sleep clinical record consists of three items: physical examination, subjective symptoms and clinical history. The clinical history analyses behavioural and cognitive problems. All three items were used to create a sleep clinical score (SCS). We studied 279 children, mean ± SD age 6.1 ± 3.1 years, 63.8% male; 27.2% with primary snoring and 72.8% with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) syndrome. The SCS was higher in the OSA syndrome group compared to the primary snoring group (8.1 ± 9.6 versus 0.4 ± 0.3
