Prisoners shall have an opportunity to seek judicial review of disciplinary sanctions imposed against them generic 800mg zovirax with amex. In the event that a breach of discipline is prosecuted as a crime generic 200mg zovirax fast delivery, prisoners shall be entitled to all due process guarantees applicable to criminal proceedings, including unimpeded access to a legal adviser. Rule 42 General living conditions addressed in these rules, including those related to light, ventilation, temperature, sanitation, nutrition, drinking water, access to open air and physical exercise, personal hygiene, health care and adequate personal space, shall apply to all prisoners without exception. In no circumstances may restrictions or disciplinary sanctions amount to torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. The following practices, in particular, shall be prohibited: (a) Indefinite solitary confinement; (b) Prolonged solitary confinement; (c) Placement of a prisoner in a dark or constantly lit cell; (d) Corporal punishment or the reduction of a prisoner’s diet or drinking water; (e) Collective punishment. Instruments of restraint shall never be applied as a sanction for disciplinary offences. Disciplinary sanctions or restrictive measures shall not include the prohibition of family contact. Rule 44 For the purpose of these rules, solitary confinement shall refer to the confinement of prisoners for 22 hours or more a day without meaningful human contact. Prolonged solitary confinement shall refer to solitary confinement for a time period in excess of 15 consecutive days. Solitary confinement shall be used only in exceptional cases as a last resort, for as short a time as possible and subject to independent review, and only pursuant to the authorization by a competent authority. The imposition of solitary confinement should be prohibited in the case of prisoners with mental or physical disabilities when their conditions would be exacerbated by such measures. The prohibition of the use of solitary confinement and similar measures in cases involving women and children, as referred to in other United Nations standards and norms in crime prevention and criminal justice,2 continues to apply. Health-care personnel shall not have any role in the imposition of disciplinary sanctions or other restrictive measures. They shall, however, pay particular attention to the health of prisoners held under any form of involuntary separation, including by visiting such prisoners on a daily basis and providing prompt medical assistance and treatment at the request of such prisoners or prison staff. Health-care personnel shall report to the prison director, without delay, any adverse effect of disciplinary sanctions or other restrictive measures on the physical or mental health of a prisoner subjected to such sanctions or measures and shall advise the director if they consider it necessary to terminate or alter them for physical or mental health reasons. Health-care personnel shall have the authority to review and recommend changes to the involuntary separation of a prisoner in order to ensure that such separation does not exacerbate the medical condition or mental or physical disability of the prisoner. The use of chains, irons or other instruments of restraint which are inherently degrading or painful shall be prohibited. Other instruments of restraint shall only be used when authorized by law and in the following circumstances: (a) As a precaution against escape during a transfer, provided that they are removed when the prisoner appears before a judicial or administrative authority; (b) By order of the prison director, if other methods of control fail, in order to prevent a prisoner from injuring himself or herself or others or from damaging property; in such instances, the director shall immediately alert the physician or other qualified health-care professionals and report to the higher administrative authority. When the imposition of instruments of restraint is authorized in accordance with paragraph 2 of rule 47, the following principles shall apply: (a) Instruments of restraint are to be imposed only when no lesser form of control would be effective to address the risks posed by unrestricted movement; (b) The method of restraint shall be the least intrusive method that is necessary and reasonably available to control the prisoner’s movement, based on the level and nature of the risks posed; (c) Instruments of restraint shall be imposed only for the time period required, and they are to be removed as soon as possible after the risks posed by unrestricted movement are no longer present. Instruments of restraint shall never be used on women during labour, during childbirth and immediately after childbirth. Rule 49 The prison administration should seek access to, and provide training in the use of, control techniques that would obviate the need for the imposition of instruments of restraint or reduce their intrusiveness. Searches shall be conducted in a manner that is respectful of the inherent human dignity and privacy of the individual being searched, as well as the principles of proportionality, legality and necessity. Rule 51 Searches shall not be used to harass, intimidate or unnecessarily intrude upon a prisoner’s privacy. For the purpose of accountability, the prison administration shall keep appropriate records of searches, in particular strip and body cavity searches and searches of cells, as well as the reasons for the searches, the identities of those who conducted them and any results of the searches. Intrusive searches, including strip and body cavity searches, should be undertaken only if absolutely necessary. Prison administrations shall be encouraged to develop and use appropriate alternatives to intrusive searches. Intrusive searches shall be conducted in private and by trained staff of the same sex as the prisoner. Body cavity searches shall be conducted only by qualified health-care professionals other than those primarily responsible for the care of the prisoner or, at a minimum, by staff appropriately trained by a medical professional in standards of hygiene, health and safety. Rule 53 Prisoners shall have access to, or be allowed to keep in their possession without access by the prison administration, documents relating to their legal proceedings. The information referred to in rule 54 shall be available in the most commonly used languages in accordance with the needs of the prison population. If a prisoner does not understand any of those languages, interpretation assistance should be provided. If a prisoner is illiterate, the information shall be conveyed to him or her orally. Prisoners with sensory disabilities should be provided with information in a manner appropriate to their needs. The prison administration shall prominently display summaries of the information in common areas of the prison. Every prisoner shall have the opportunity each day to make requests or complaints to the prison director or the prison staff member authorized to represent him or her.

Disease severity and arterial oxygenation should be assessed in all patients with pneumonia discount 400mg zovirax overnight delivery. Noninvasive measurement of arterial oxygen saturation via pulse oximetry is an appropriate screening test order zovirax 200mg on-line. Arterial blood gas analysis is indicated for those with evidence of hypoxemia suggested by noninvasive assessment and for patients who have tachypnea and/or respiratory distress. If previous radiographs are available, they should be reviewed to assess for presence of new findings. Gram stain and culture of expectorated sputum should be performed only if a good-quality specimen can be obtained and quality performance measures can be met for collection, transport, and processing of samples. Correlation of sputum culture with Gram stain can help in interpretation of sputum culture data. Bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage should be considered, especially if the differential diagnosis is broad and includes pathogens such as Pneumocystis jirovecii. Diagnostic thoracentesis should be considered in all patients with pleural effusion, especially if concern exists for accompanying empyema, and therapeutic thoracentesis should be performed to relieve respiratory distress secondary to a moderate-to-large-sized pleural effusion. Modifiable factors associated with an increased risk of bacterial pneumonia include smoking cigarettes and using injection drugs and alcohol. Antibiotic therapy should be administered promptly, however, without waiting for the results of diagnostic testing. Preferred beta-lactams are high-dose amoxicillin or amoxicillin-clavulanate; alternatives are cefpodoxime or cefuroxime. Intensive Care Unit Treatment Intensive care unit patients should not receive empiric monotherapy, even with a fluoroquinolone, because the efficacy of this approach has not been established. In one study, the use of dual therapy (usually with a beta-lactam plus a macrolide) was associated with reduced mortality in patients with bacteremic pneumococcal pneumonia, including those admitted to the intensive care unit. Both of these pathogens occur in specific epidemiologic patterns with distinct clinical presentations, for which empiric antibiotic coverage may be warranted. Diagnostic tests (sputum Gram stain and culture) are likely to be of high yield for these pathogens, allowing early discontinuation of empiric treatment if results are negative. Preferred beta-lactams are piperacillin-tazobactam, cefepime, imipenem, or meropenem. Pathogen-Directed Therapy When the etiology of the pneumonia has been identified on the basis of reliable microbiological methods, antimicrobial therapy should be modified and directed at that pathogen. Managing Treatment Failure Patients who fail to respond to appropriate antimicrobial therapy should undergo further evaluation to search for other infectious and noninfectious causes of pulmonary dysfunction. Antibiotic chemoprophylaxis generally is not recommended specifically to prevent recurrences of bacterial respiratory infections because of the potential for development of drug-resistant microorganisms and drug toxicity. Special Considerations During Pregnancy The diagnosis of bacterial respiratory tract infections in pregnant women is the same as in those who are not pregnant, with appropriate shielding of the abdomen during radiographic procedures. Bacterial respiratory tract infections should be managed as in women who are not pregnant, with certain exceptions. Clarithromycin is not recommended as the first-line agent among macrolides because of an increased risk of birth defects seen in some animal studies. Two studies, each involving at least 100 women with first- trimester exposure to clarithromycin, did not document a clear increase in or specific pattern of birth defects, although an increased risk of spontaneous abortion was noted in one study. Arthropathy has been noted in immature animals with in utero exposure to quinolones. Beta-lactam antibiotics have not been associated with teratogenicity or increased toxicity in pregnancy. A theoretical risk of fetal renal or eighth nerve damage exists with exposure during pregnancy, but this finding has not been documented in humans, except with streptomycin (10% risk) and kanamycin (2% risk). Experience with linezolid in human pregnancy has been limited, but it was not teratogenic in mice, rats, and rabbits. Pneumonia during pregnancy is associated with increased rates of preterm labor and delivery. The regimen should be modified as needed once microbiologic and drug susceptibility results are available.

Cannabis plants 2 % Reputation systems also play a role in regulating vendors on the markets. A recent study, exploring sales on 16 major darknet markets between 2011 and 2015, estimated that drug sales were responsible for more than 90 % of the total economic revenue of global darknet marketplaces. Cannabis is the most commonly seized drug, accounting for over 70 % of seizures in Europe (Figure 1.

It should also be are the two main cannabis products found on the noted that recent data on the number of seizures are not European drugs market, while cannabis oil is available for the Netherlands or for Poland and Finland. Cannabis products account for the Tese gaps in the data add uncertainty to the analysis.

In addition, evidence suggests that Libya Te number of seizures of herbal cannabis in Europe has has become a major hub for the trafcking of resin to exceeded that of cannabis resin since 2009, with relatively various destinations including Europe. An estimated In 2015, 732 000 seizures of cannabis products were 135 tonnes of herbal cannabis was seized in Europe in reported in the European Union including 404 000 of 2015, a decrease of 38 % compared with the 217 tonnes herbal cannabis, 288 000 of cannabis resin and 19 000 of seized in 2014. A similar decrease in the quantity of however, is more than 6 times that of herbal cannabis herbal cannabis seized in Turkey is also evident from 2013. Tis is partially a A number of factors may be behind this overall drop in consequence of cannabis resin being trafcked in volume Europe. Tese may include initiatives to tackle large-scale over large distances and across national borders, making it production in countries outside the European Union, such more vulnerable to interdiction. In the analysis of the as Albania; increased focus on domestic cultivation rather quantity of cannabis seized, a small number of countries than trafcking; changes in the way seizures are registered, are particularly important due to their location on major and changing law enforcement priorities in some cannabis trafcking routes. In the latest data, the quantity of cannabis resin point of entry for cannabis resin produced in Morocco, seized in the European Union has remained relatively reported more than 70 % of the total quantity seized in stable since 2009. Te most recent data suggest that may refect changes in law enforcement priorities, with resin and herb have similar prices, whereas on average, cannabis cultivation more intensively targeted. In 2015, 335 seizures of cannabis oil were reported, with Greece and Turkey seizing the largest quantities. Historically, diverted from legitimate pharmaceutical supplies, while imported heroin has been available in Europe in two forms, others such as the 27 kilograms of morphine powder the more common of which is brown heroin (its chemical seized in 2015, are illicitly manufactured. Far less common is white heroin (a salt form), which in the past Afghanistan remains the world’s largest illicit producer of came from South-East Asia, but now may also be opium, and most heroin found in Europe is thought to be produced in Afghanistan or neighbouring countries. Price and purity of ‘brown heroin’: national mean values — minimum, maximum and interquartile range.

In addition to heroin, other opioid products are seized in Te two most important are the ‘Balkan route’ and the European countries, but these represent a small fraction of ‘southern route’. Te other opioids most commonly Balkan countries (Bulgaria, Romania or Greece) and on to seized are the medicinal opioids buprenorphine, tramadol central, southern and western Europe. Te southern route, where shipments from Iran and Pakistan enter Europe by air or sea, either directly or transiting through African countries, has gained importance in recent years. Other routes include the ‘northern route’ and a route through the southern Caucasus and across the Black Sea. Following a decade of relative stability, markets in a number of European countries experienced reduced heroin availability in 2010/11. Tis is evident in the number of heroin seizures reported, which declined in the European Union from 2009 to 2014, before stabilising in 2015. Between 2002 and 2013, the quantity of heroin seized within the European Union halved, from 10 to 5 tonnes. Tere are marked regional diferences regarding which stimulant is most commonly seized (Figure 1. Cocaine is the most frequently seized stimulant in many western and southern countries, closely refecting where the drug enters Europe. Amphetamines seizures are predominant in northern and central Europe, with methamphetamine the most commonly seized stimulant in the Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania and Slovakia. Cocaine is transported to Europe by various means, including passenger fights, air freight, postal services, private aircraft, yachts and maritime containers.
