The ear is divided into three parts: the external ear includes the visible part of the ear the pinna and the ear canal; the middle ear is the air-filled space behind the eardrum that contains the three middle ear bones the ossicles ; and the inner ear contains the sensory organs of hearing cochlea and balance semicircular canals. The Eustachian tube is a narrow tube that connects the middle ear to the back of the nose. Normally, the Eustachian tube opens with every swallow or yawn to act as a pressure-equalizing valve for the middle ear.
Diarrhoeal aetiologies in this patient cohort remain debatable; however, the consequences of diarrhoea have been well established and include electrolyte imbalance, dehydration, bacterial translocation, peri anal wound contamination and sleep deprivation. This study examined the incidence of diarrhoea and explored factors contributing to the development of diarrhoea in the ETF, critically ill, adult patient. METHOD: After institutional ethical review and approval, a single centre medical chart audit was undertaken to examine the incidence of diarrhoea in ETF, critically ill patients.

Please take this quick survey to tell us about what happens after you publish a paper. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of head rotation in adults and children on endotracheal tube ETT position and to confirm previous results regarding the influence of head flexion and extension on ETT position. In all patients, flexing the head resulted in the ETT moving towards the carina, and extension resulted in the tube being displaced in the opposite direction.

Comparison of different methods of nasogastric tube insertion in anesthetized and intubated patients.

Several techniques are available for the successful insertion of nasogastric tube.
Synthetic ear tubes are also sometimes called ventilation tubes, ear grommets, or tympanostomy tubes. They are placed inside of the auditory tube in order to hold it open and to allow proper ventilation and drainage of the middle ear. The surgical placement of ear tubes is more common in children than adults because children have a naturally more narrow auditory tube which tends to be at a more horizontal angle than adults.
