Dear Patrons, Nineteen new links have been added since the last newsletter. For Professionals:1. The American Dental Association has a new guideline for pretreatment for infective endocarditis prevention. This is in conjunction with the American Heart Association. There are major differences from the previous guidelines with many conditions NOT needing treatment now.
ADA - Infective Endocarditis Prophylaxis Guidelines http://www.ada.org/prof/resources/topics/infective_endocarditis.asp2. The American Psychiatric Association has several new practice parameters on common conditions.
APA - Practice Parameters for Assessment and Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Anxiety Disorders
Cincinnati Children's Hospital - Pap Testhttp://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/health/info/teen/procedure/ paptest.htm
2. JAMA Patient Pages also has a new patient handout on ALL. Just as a reminder. JAMA Patient Pages are available by subscription earlier than they appear in the free MEDEM website. Therefore there is a delay in linking to them on GeneralPediatrics.com
JAMA Patient Page - Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemiahttp://www.medem.org/search/article_display.cfm?path=\\TANQUERAY \M_ContentItem&mstr=/M_ContentItem/ZZZ25QXRVZE.html&soc=JAMA/ Archives&srch_typ=NAV_SERCH
