What Can You Do About Tinnitus?

Discussion Tinnitus is derived from the Latin word tinnire which means to ring but in general practice it means any perceived sound that is not generated externally. It is a common problem in adults. In children it is described as being commonly overlooked as children do not spontaneously report it. It is felt that children may consider the sound normal, or are easily distracted and therefore forget about it. Children can accurately describe the sounds they hear and use words such as buzz, ring, hum, swish, whish, blow or beep. Spontaneously reported tinnitus is ~6.5% and increases to 34% when children are specifically questioned in one study. Prevalence has been reported in up to 36% of children with normal hearing and rises to up to 66% in children with hearing loss. Constant tinnitus (43%) is reported more commonly than intermittent tinnitus (31.5%) and bilateral (69%) is more common than unilateral (31%). Tinnitus that affects quality of life is not reported in studies but studies in adults show ~33% will report tinnitus but only 0.4-1% report it affecting their quality of life. Reported problems in children with tinnitus include sensory perception problems, emotional/psychological problems, headache, dizziness and vertigo, fatigue, and sleep problems. One study found no association between childhood hearing disorders and adult tinnitus after adjusting for adult hearing thresholds. Another study of adolescents found a high prevalence of tinnitus in those who had signific...

Authors: Amore M, Bernárdez R, Enríquez R, Granja S, Romeo H Abstract The study aim is to evaluate anatomical variations of the thoracic duct using a specialized sequential injection procedure. The different types, frequencies, and anatomical topography were recorded and evaluated using 12 adult and 16 fetus specimens. By employing a perfusion pump device, cadavers were sequentially perfused with acrylic colored latex first through the internal marginal vein, then the thoracic duct at the interazygous-aortic recess, and finally through the posterior tibial artery. After perfusion, thoracic ducts were ...

Authors: Iwakiri K, Sotoyama M, Takahashi M, Liu X, Koda S, Ichikawa K Abstract Many care workers at elderly care facilities in Japan suffer occupational low back pain (LBP) despite the utilization of welfare equipment. When introducing welfare equipment such as hoists and sliding boards, education on appropriate care methods using welfare equipment is usually conducted, but the effect of education diminishes with time. This intervention study aimed to examine the effect of re-education on appropriate care methods using welfare equipment on the prevention of care workers' LBP at an elderly care facility. At the int...

Authors: Norum J, Balteskard L, Thomsen MW, Kvernmo HD Abstract Rough weather conditions in the subarctic areas of Norway may influence on the risk of wrist fracture. We implemented data from the Norwegian System of Patient Injury Compensation (NPE). All claims due to wrist surgery, performed at the public hospitals in Northern Norway, during 2005-2014 were analyzed. We employed the ICD-10 classification codes S52.5 (fracture of distal end of radius) and S52.6 (fracture of distal end of radius and ulna). Treatment was defined by NCSP codes. 84 patients (0.3%) complained. Females complained four times more often tha...

CONCLUSIONS:   In participants reporting HxLBP, TrA thickness modulations were lower and both tabletop and seated thickness modulations were able to distinguish reported HxLBP status. These findings suggest that TrA muscle function may be altered by HxLBP. PMID: 29912568 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Being in a healthy relationship has been shown to provide health benefits, including a longer life. Now, a new study reports that people who are married appear to have a lower risk of heart disease. The review, published in the journal Heart, analyzed over 30 studies that involved more than two million people. The studies included information on people’s marital status and their risk for heart-related problems. An estimated 80% of a person’s risk for cardiovascular disease is related to issues like genetics or other health issues like high blood pressure or diabetes, the researchers say. But other factors, like...

CONCLUSIONS: 24-h ambulatory recordings with ≥8/≥4 awake/asleep readings yielded ABP levels similar to recordings including the guideline-recommended ≥20/≥7 readings. These criteria save valuable data in a research setting, but are not applicable to clinical practice. PMID: 29909698 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
