JoVE Medicine Video Journal serves as a unique platform featuring patient care and prognosis research, thus empowering today’s medical practitioners. The videos make research more accessible to clinical researchers, practitioners and those making decisions about treating patients.
Here are six video articles that demonstrate the broad range of research and patient-care technologies that appear in JoVE, published by authors from hospitals and medical research institutions around the world.
1. Setting Up a Stroke Team Algorithm and Conducting Simulation-based Training in the Emergency Department – A Practical Guide
Every minute counts in acute stroke care. This video guide shows how to establish a Stroke Team algorithm and enhance its performance with regular simulation training. The principles of Crew Resource Management (CRM) facilitate a straight workflow, reduce door-to-needle times and increase staff satisfaction.
2. The Multiple Sclerosis Performance Test (MSPT): An iPad-Based Disability Assessment Tool
Precise measurement of neurological and neuropsychological impairment and disability in multiple sclerosis is challenging. We report methodologic details on a new test, the Multiple Sclerosis Performance Test (MSPT). This new approach to the objective of quantification of MS-related disability provides a computer-based platform for precise, valid measurement of MS severity.
3. State of the Art Cranial Ultrasound Imaging in Neonates
Cranial ultrasound (CUS) is a valuable tool for brain imaging in critically ill neonates. This video shows a comprehensive approach for neonatal (Doppler) CUS for both clinical and research purposes, including a bedside demonstration of the technique.
4. Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Skeletal Muscle Disease
Neuromuscular diseases often exhibit a temporally varying, spatially heterogeneous, and multifaceted pathology. The goal of this protocol is to characterize this pathology using non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging methods.
5. Intraoperative Gastroscopy for Tumor Localization in Laparoscopic Surgery for Gastric Adenocarcinoma
In early gastric cancer, surgery aims to remove the distal stomach including the primary tumor precisely. To do this, accurate localization of the tumor is crucial, especially in totally laparoscopic surgery. This protocol describes a procedure for intraoperative gastroscopy in totally laparoscopic subtotal gastrectomy.
6. Transthoracic Speckle Tracking Echocardiography for the Quantitative Assessment of Left Ventricular Myocardial Deformation
Speckle tracking echocardiography is an emerging diagnostic imaging technique for the quantitative assessment of global and regional myocardial performance. Standard view echocardiographic motion images are recorded, and deformation parameters are subsequently measured by automated continuous frame-by-frame tracking and motion analysis of speckles within the B-mode images of the myocardium.
