Blast-induced tinnitus and hyperactivity in the auditory cortex of rats - Luo H, Pace E, Zhang J.

Blast exposure can cause tinnitus and hearing impairment by damaging the auditory periphery and direct impact to the brain, which trigger neural plasticity in both auditory and non-auditory centers. However, the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms of ...

Symptoms of burnout and regret over career choice are common among second-year resident physicians (PGY-2) in the United States, but these symptoms vary according to specialty, reports astudy published today inJAMA. Overall, 45% of PGY-2 residents reported symptoms of burnout and 14% reported career choice regret.“The findings suggest the prevalence of burnout symptoms among resident physicians may be similar to that of practicing physicians (48.8%) and higher than other U.S. workers (28.4% as assessed in 2014 using the same single-item measures adapted from the MBI [Maslach Burnout Inventory]),” wrote L iselot...

ConclusionMajor issues when addressing cicatricial ectropion followed by severe burns are: right donor site selection, appropriate graft thickness with the least possible disturbance of the affected place vascularisation, followed by immediate grafting after debridement of scaring and unhealthy tissue, with generous preservation of the orbicularis muscle.

ConclusionOur analysis comparing the use of traditional ISS and NBISS to measure comorbid non-burn trauma resulted in different interpretations for the effect of %TBSA on subsequent mortality. Our results suggest that the association of %TBSA with death can be obscured by the inclusion of traditional ISS. Therefore, we recommend using NBISS when constructing statistical models in this patient population.

Little is known regarding what characteristics predict outpatient treatment of pediatric minor burns and whether there is a temporal trend toward this treatment paradigm.MethodsA retrospective cohort study was performed using California’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development l...

ConclusionsAlthough the quality of information published on German-speaking burn center websites increased, they must be further developed, especially regarding burn-related information. Moreover, a clear structure and design could prevent long searches and facilitate an easier flow of information. The interface from websites and social media platforms appear to be an important tool for up-to-date self-promotion.

Issued in 2007 with images of Boston ’s Old North Church and the midnight rider Paul Revere, this 39-cent U.S. postal stamp commemorated the 200th anniversary of the birth of American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 to 1882). Because Georgia’s Crawford Long, M.D., failed to publish his use of obstetric ether more than 2 yr ea rlier, Longfellow’s wife Fanny became the first Americanrecorded to have received ether for obstetric anesthesia. (Note: Fanny ’s etherization by Dr. Nathan Cooley Keep occurred more than 3 months after Professor James Y. Simpson’s use in Scotland of obstetric ether...

Publication date: Available online 18 September 2018Source: NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Amarins N. Heeringa, Calvin Wu, Christopher Chung, Michael West, David Martel, Leslie Liberman, M. Charles Liberman, Susan E. ShoreAbstractTinnitus alters auditory-somatosensory plasticity in the cochlear nucleus (CN). Correspondingly, bimodal auditory-somatosensory stimulation treatment attenuates tinnitus, both in animals and humans (Marks et al., 2018). Therefore, we hypothesized that tinnitus is associated with altered somatosensory innervation of the CN. Here, we studied the expression of vesicular glutamate transporters 1 and 2 (VGLUT1...
