Let me start from the beginning.Last December my daughter was diagnosed with malabsorpation. She was 10lbs at 7 months old. We seen a gastric specialist. Changed diet etc. She gained weight and doctors were happy. When she turned a year old in may we discovered she is lactose intolerant. It progressively got worse until 3 months ago. The middle of October my daughter formed a nasty cough and runny nose. Doctors told me it was viral.for a month my daughter would cough so bad at night it would make her sick, keep her awake. She would scream in her sleep. (Not night terrors) finally I got fed up. My daughter was suffering. I was suffering. There was no sleep. My precious daughter turned into a mean little girl 😟 on black Friday her Dr diagnosed her with asthma (her daddy's side has it bad and she was a premier) so the Dr gave us a nebulizer with pulmicort(sp??) And albuterol for emergencies. 2 weeks in she was the same. Coughing bad, snotty nose but sleeping was better. Dr refered us to a pediatric pulmonary. He did an auto immune (Aa) blood work. And ordered a cf sweat test. Started her on singular and upped the nebulizer to twice a day. We did the sweat test. I got the phone call her levels were elevated. Now we are scheduled to do another sweat test at a cystic fibrosis center. The center says this test is more in depth. Her pulmonary dr said that he doesn't think the new test is needed as he believes her results were not elevated enough. The CF center told me she has cf. ...

Discussion Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is a clefting problem of the brain. “[HPE] the result of incomplete or absent midline division of the embryonic forebrain into distinct cerebral hemispheres (prosencephalon) between the 18th and 28th day after conception.” There are four distinct subtypes: Alobar – both hemispheres are completely fused and are not separated into the left and right hemispheres. There is agenesis of the corpus callosum, arrhinencephaly and a single ventricle with fused thalami. Facial features are almost always affected. Semilobar – the cerebral hemispheres are fused anteriorly bu...

Grid cells fire in sequences that represent rapid trajectories in space. During locomotion, theta sequences encode sweeps in position starting slightly behind the animal and ending ahead of it. During quiescence and slow wave sleep, bouts of synchronized activity represent long trajectories called replays, which are well-established in place cells and have been recently reported in grid cells. Theta sequences and replay are hypothesized to facilitate many cognitive functions, but their underlying mechanisms are unknown. One mechanism proposed for grid cell formation is the continuous attractor network. We demonstrate that ...

ConclusionsPoor SRH was associated with raised concentrations of many plasma proteins. However, the relationships were largely attenuated by adjustments for CVD risk factors, comorbidity and psycho-social factors. Leptin and CCL20 were associated with poor SRH in the present study and could potentially be involved in the SRH –CVD link.

This study aims to explore the effects of low-temperature plasma treatment on pulmonary function in children with OSAHS.MethodsA total of 110 children with OSAHS were included in this prospective study. Low-temperature plasma radiofrequency treatment and routine surgical treatment were performed in group A and group B, respectively. Maximal voluntary ventilation (MVV), forced vital capacity (FVC), and total lung capacity (TLC) were measured. OSA-18 survey was used to evaluate the quality of life 1 year after operation.ResultsGroup A had significantly higher effective treatment rate (P
