OR10-1 – Efficacy of High-Intensity Intermittent #Training for Improving Cardio-Metabolic Health in Women With #Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common and complex endocrinopathy with significant metabolic and reproductive manifestations, carrying a major health and economic burden. Consistent improvements in clinical outcomes have been reported as a result of exercise training, but shortfalls with exercise prescription are evident. Research suggests that high-intensity intermittent training (HIIT) is feasible, well tolerated and enjoyable for people with or at risk of chronic … Continue reading OR10-1 – Efficacy of High-Intensity Intermittent #Training for Improving Cardio-Metabolic Health in Women With #Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Utility of bedside leucocyte esterase testing to rule out septic #arthritis

Suspected septic arthritis is a common presentation to EDs. The underlying diagnosis is often non-infective pathology. Differentiating between aetiologies is difficult. A bedside test with high negative predictive value (NPV) may allow safe discharge of patients, reduce the time in the ED, hospital admission and associated costs. This study aims to evaluate the NPV of bedside leucocyte esterase (LE) in the assessment of these patients. … Continue reading Utility of bedside leucocyte esterase testing to rule out septic #arthritis
