 The Conference
The Italian National Conference of Italian Public Health Medical Residents reachs its 3th edition by renewing its format and getting bigger!
For the first time, the conference is not exclusively open to Medical Residents in Hygiene and Preventive Medicine, but also to Community Medicine and Health Statistics and Biometric Medical Resi-dents, as well as to all members of the European Network of Medical Residents in Public Health (EuroNet MRPH).
This Abstract Book collects all the contri-butions of the Oral Sessions.
These are the TOPICS:
The contributions were collected and arranged by Francesco Soncini, Francesca Campanella, Rocco Guerra and the members of the Scientific Commettee Benedetto Arru, Michela Capelli, Elvira D’Andrea, Francesco Soncini
The Consulta
The “Consulta dei Medici in Formazione Specialistica SItI” (commonly “Consulta”) is part of the Italian Society of Hygiene, Preventive Medicine and Public Health (S.It.I.)
Consulta promotes and to stimulates professional, cultural and personal devel-opment of the Italian Medical Residents in Public Health, to endorse cooperation between the Italian Public Health Schools and to inspire discussions about issues related to Public Health.
Consulta is composed of two delegates for each of the 32 Italian Public Health Schools, accounting for more than 750 residents across Italy, and it’s fully aware of the importance of having tight rela-tions and productive forms of cooperation between Public Health Residents across Europe (Consulta is proud founder of
EuroNet MRPH, the Network of Medical Residents in Public Health: ).
Moreover, Consulta shares with its European counterparts the need for a better integration of Public Health expertises in Europe (It’s also a support-er of EUPHAnxt Project:

 Purpose: In many places, especially in emergency department, central venous catheter is still inserted using anatomical landmark guidance with a success rate up to 97.6% and complications up to 15%. This study was aimed to determine by the support of ultrasono-graphy (US) the anatomical variations of the internal jugular vein (IJV) in relation with other structures of the neck, such as the common carotid artery (CCA).
Material and Methods: 830 patients requiring central vein catheterization (CVC) were in-cluded in the analysis. The position of the IJV in relation to the other structures of the neck was demonstrated by portable ultrasonography.
Results: The mean diameter of IJV was 10.3 mm in right and 10.5 mm in left side of neck, in male (p > 0.05) and 9.1 mm in right and 10.5 mm in left side of neck, in female (p > 0.05). The mean distance between IJV and CCA was 1.9 mm in right and 1.7 mm in left side of neck in male, and 2.0 mm in right and 2.2 mm in left side of neck in female. The mean distance of IJV from the skin surface was 9.8 mm in right and 10.0 mm in left side of neck in male, and 12.1 mm in right and 12.5 mm in left side of neck in female. On 25.54 % we observed variations of internal jugular vein site. On 3.97 % we observed a small caliber of internal jugular vein that could complicate the catheterization of the vein. On 1.8 % was diagnosed a thrombus of internal jugular vein, that is considered as an ab-solute contraindication for a CVC.
Conclusion: Different patients had anatomical variations that are important and should be knowed, in order to reduce the possibility of severe complications.
