    Title Communication Outcomes in Audiologic Reporting.
    Date July 2011
    Journal Journal of the American Academy of Audiology
    Excerpt

    Audiologists often work collaboratively with other health professionals-particularly otolaryngology providers. Some form of written reporting of audiologic outcomes is typically the vehicle by which communication among providers occurs. Quality patient care is dependent on both accurate interpretation of outcomes and effectiveness of communication between providers. Audiologic reporting protocols tend to vary among clinics and providers, with most methods being based on preference rather than standardized definitions.

    Title Acute Airway Obstruction in Cervical Spinal Procedures with Bone Morphogenetic Proteins.
    Date October 2010
    Journal The Laryngoscope
    Excerpt

    Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP) used in anterior cervical spinal procedures causes an inflammatory response resulting in upper-airway obstruction between postoperative days 2 to 7. The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence and severity of complications associated with use of BMP.

    Title Evaluation of Culture and Antibiotic Use in Patients with Pharyngitis.
    Date October 2006
    Journal The Laryngoscope
    Excerpt

    OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to evaluate practice patterns for treatment of patients with pharyngitis with regard to testing for group A beta hemolytic streptococcal (GABHS) infection, frequency of antibiotic use, and appropriate choice of antibiotics. STUDY DESIGN: The authors conducted a retrospective review of billing data for 10,482 office visits for pharyngitis. METHODS: The 2004 billing database for a tertiary institution was queried for outpatient visits for pharyngitis or tonsillitis, group A Streptococcus tests (GAST), and antibiotic prescriptions filled after the visit. Patients were separated by age group and analyzed for the proportion of patients that received a GAST and proportion prescribed an antibiotic. Antibiotic prescriptions were also analyzed to determine whether they were appropriate for treatment of GABHS. RESULTS: A total of 68.7% of all patients and 82.2% of pediatric patients were tested for GAST. A total of 47.1% of adult patients and 44.9% of pediatric patients received an antibiotic. For adult patients for whom GAST was obtained, 48.6% were prescribed an antibiotic versus 53.6% of those not tested. Streptococcus testing was a significant predictor of antibiotic use (P < .0001), whereas age was not (P = .22). A total of 82.1% of all antibiotics prescribed were recommended for treatment of GABHS. CONCLUSIONS: Most patients seen for pharyngitis were tested for GABHS, but pediatric patients were tested more frequently than adults. Patients who received a GAST were less likely to receive antibiotics. The rates experienced in our tertiary academic institution are higher than previously quoted for community practice. When antibiotics were prescribed, they were usually appropriate for the treatment of GABHS based on current recommendations.

    Title Abnormal Coagulation Profiles in Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy Patients.
    Date December 1990
    Journal Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal
    Excerpt

    Preoperative coagulation profile screening is routinely performed in otolaryngology before tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy surgery in the United States. Recently there has been controversy as to whether this routine testing is necessary. To evaluate the need for this testing, we reviewed a series of patients with particular attention to abnormal coagulation profiles. Of 91 consecutive patients undergoing tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, or both, four had abnormal preoperative coagulation profiles. Of these patients, one had von Willebrand disease, one had hypofibrinoginemia, and two had a transient acquired lupus-like anticoagulant. The latter condition, which causes a temporary prolongation of the activated partial thromboplastin time, is discussed in detail along with a review of the pertinent literature. We conclude that coagulopathies occur frequently enough to justify preoperative screening even in the absence of a positive history.
