Association between nocturnal enuresis and snoringin the community-dwelling 21,380 children
DISCUSSION The study indicated that OSA and NE were associated, leading to their possible common pathogeneses. There were a few limitations; this was based on cross-sectional study, and thus did not elucidate the causal relations. In addition, some of the diagnoses might be clinically inaccurate as the study was to the parents or care-takers. However, only a restricted number of studies based on communities was available regarding this topic, while our study enrolled more than 21,000 children, with such a high response rate.
ConclusionIn our study, the Met-allele was associated with higher stress levels. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study investigating this area. The findings from this study should trigger more investigators to focus on the impact of stress, due to the potential effects of these genes, on medical students.
In an attempt to keep the main University of Michigan thread on topic and avoid the spamming that we saw last week, I have made this thread for all of our neuroticism and anxiety to be redirected to. I will lock this thread Monday evening and I will unlock it the following Sunday. @EmbryonalCarcinoma @Doctors' Docta @pagingdocopp @Jappa @peanutbuttah @premedpower8484848...

ConclusionsBronchodilator dose responsiveness may be useful for phenotyping and may be of utility in practice and future studies focused on asthma outcomes or quantification of treatment responses. In children and adolescents, this phenotype of poor bronchodilator responsiveness may be associated with periods of relatively stable disease yet marked airway constriction in response to triggers, including tobacco smoke, respiratory infections/pneumonia, and aeroallergens.

ConclusionsCommunity pharmacist–delivered inhaler training informed by a digital technology improved adherence and health status.
ConclusionsThe trial demonstrated a favorable safety profile of the SQ HDM SLIT tablet in Japanese adult patients with AA. The treatment appeared to be efficacious in patients requiring rescue medication (ie, short-acting β2-agonist) at baseline in the efficacy assessment using asthma exacerbation during inhaled corticosteroid reduction (JapicCTI number 121847).
ConclusionsPatients may adapt their ICS use to their current needs without this impacting later RDAC.

Hirsch, Frances Meeten, Lies NotebaertAbstractWhile considerable experimental research has examined the impact of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on a range of cognitive processes associated with emotional pathology, the impact of tDCS on worry has been comparatively neglected. Given that anxiety pathology is characterised by motivated engagement in worry, and that frontal tDCS has the capacity to enhance goal-oriented cognition, it is important to examine whe...
ConclusionsWhen considered within the context of previous research, the experimental effects and therapeutic potential of CBM-I for high AS appear to be minimal. However, methodological questions need to be resolved before such a conclusion can be considered definitive.
Authors: Bashir MU, Bhagra A, Kapa S, McLeod CJ Abstract Atrial fibrillation is the most common symptomatic arrhythmia that is associated with stroke. Contemporary management of the disease is focused on anticoagulation to prevent stroke, coupled with catheter ablation to limit symptoms and prevent deleterious cardiac remodeling. Emerging data highlights the importance of lifestyle modification by managing sleep apnea, increasing physical activity, and weight loss. There is significant data that supports a link between the autonomic nervous system, arrhythmia development, and atrial fibrillation therapy. It is like...
