Ottawa ankle rules
In medicine , the Ottawa ankle rules are a set of guidelines for clinicians to help decide if a patient with foot or ankle pain should be offered X-rays to diagnose a possible bone fracture. Before the introduction of the rules most patients with ankle injuries would have been imaged. However the vast majority of patients with unclear ankle injuries do not have bone fractures. Additionally, the Ottawa ankle rules indicate whether a foot X-ray series is required.
It states that it is indicated if:. Certain groups are excluded, in particular pregnant women, and those with diminished ability to follow the test for example due to head injury or intoxication. Several studies strongly support the use of the Ottawa Ankle Rules in children over 6 The rules have been found to have a very high sensitivity , moderate specificity , and therefore a very low rate of false negatives.
Evidence supports the rules as an accurate instrument for excluding fractures of the ankle and mid-foot, reducing the number of unnecessary investigations and length of stay in emergency departments. This list of rules was published in by a team of doctors in the emergency department of the Ottawa Civic Hospital in Ottawa , Canada. The original rules were developed for ankle and foot injuries only, but similar guidelines have been developed for other injuries such as the Ottawa knee rules.

Main Outcome Measure. The rules were found to have sensitivities of 1. In the following 12 months at the intervention hospital, use of radiography did not increase. Future studies should address the generalizability of these decision rules in a variety of hospital settings. Implementation of the Ottawa Ankle Rules. Coronavirus Resource Center.

J Am Osteopath Assoc ; 12 — Context: Reducing unnecessary testing lessens the cost burden of medical care, but decreasing use depends on consistently following evidence-based clinical decision rules. The Ottawa foot and ankle rules OFARs are validated, longstanding evidence-based guidelines to predict fractures. Frequently, radiography is automatically ordered for acute ankle injuries despite findings from OFARs suggesting no fracture. Objectives: First, to determine whether implementation of protocol-driven use of the OFARs at triage would decrease the number of radiography orders and length of stay LOS in the emergency department. Second, to quantify the incidence of OFARs use at triage and to assess patient expectations of radiography use and patient satisfaction as rated by both patients and clinicians.
Introduction: The Ottawa ankle rules OAR is a tool physicians may use to determine whether or not to perform an x-ray after an ankle or midfoot distortion or blunt trauma to these structures. The rationale of using the OAR is to exclude a fracture by means of clinical examination without resort to x-rays, and thereby limiting the use of x-rays, time, costs, etc. The principle of the OAR is that an ankle x-ray is only required when there is bone tenderness along the distal six centimetres of the posterior part of the medial or lateral malleolus, or when the patient is unable to bear weight immediately after the accident and in the emergency department ED.
Ankle and foot injuries are common presentations to the Emergency Department, and it can often be difficult to know whether imaging is required.
Рядом раздался оглушающий визг тормозов такси, его лысая резина заскользила по полу. Машина завертелась в облаке выхлопных газов совсем рядом с мотоциклом Беккера. Теперь обе машины, потеряв управление, неслись к стене ангара. Беккер отчаянно давил на тормоз, но покрышки потеряли всякое сцепление с полом.
Вы набрали правильно, - сказал он осторожно, - но это служба сопровождения. Звонивший некоторое время молчал. - О… понимаю. Прошу прощения.
Не бывает такой диагностики, которая длилась бы восемнадцать часов.
