Free PDF Ebooks Claims, Errors, and Compensation Payments
The debate over medical malpractice litigation continues unabated in the United States.Advocates of tort reform, including members of the Bush administration, lament the burden of “frivolous” malpractice lawsuits and cite them as a driving force behind rising health care costs.

(A frivolous claim is one that “present[s] no rational argument based upon the evidence or law in support of the claim.") Plaintiffs’ attorneys refute this charge, countering that contingency fees and the prevalence of medical errors make the pursuit of meritless lawsuits bad business and unnecessary.

Previous research has established that the great majority of patients who sustain a medical injury as a result of negligence do not sue.

However, the merit of claims that are brought, and the ability of the malpractice system to resolve them appropriately,remainmuchmorecontroversial.

Free PDF Ebook Bronchial Asthma and Acupuncture

Free PDF Ebook Bronchial Asthma and Acupuncture

This paper reviews a number of clinical trials and outcome studies on the use of acupuncture to treat asthma. None of the trials had a large sample size and they suffer from the problems common to all acupuncture trials, such as what constitutes appropriate treatment and a suitable “control”. The outcome studies avoid some of these problems but many lack rigour or adequate description of measurements used. This paper reviews the trials that appeared most sound in methodological terms, together with those outcome studies that had relatively large samples. The trials are divided into two groups: those treating patients as part of normal clinical management and those treating patients suffering an induced asthma attack. The
findings for the first group are inconsistent, particularly as regards objective measures of lung function. There is, however, evidence that acupuncture can improve patients’ subjective experience of their symptoms, reduce their use of medication and improve immunological parameters. The smaller number of trials of induced asthma is more consistently positive.
