Propofol Sedation in Patients Undergoing Colonoscopy in Jamaica

Issue: 
Pages: 
284–8
Synopsis: 
Propofol sedation in patients undergoing elective colonoscopy was associated with relatively quick recovery and excellent satisfaction by patients and is a suitable and safe alternative for sedation for colonoscopy in Jamaica.

ABSTRACT

Background: Propofol sedation is increasingly used for colonoscopy and may be associated with increased satisfaction and efficiency in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy.  However, propofol has a relatively narrow therapeutic window as it frequently produces deep sedation, and can precipitate respiratory depression.

Anticardiolipin Antibodies and Lupus Anticoagulants among Women Undergoing In Vitro Fertilization in Jamaica

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.224
Pages: 
789–94
Synopsis: 
Approximately 8% of the infertile women seeking in vitro fertilization in Jamaica were anticardiolipin antibody and/or lupus anticoagulant positive. The presence of these antibodies did not affect the fertilization rate, pregnancy rate, nor did it demonstrate an increased risk for cycle cancellation or the ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.

ABSTRACT

Objective:  The aims of this study were to evaluate the effect of anticardiolipin antibody (aCL) and lupus anticoagulant (LA) on the outcome of the in vitro ferlitization (IVF) cycles and to determine the prevalence of these antibodies in infertile women seeking IVF in Jamaica.
