Conclusions: In vivo exposure to remifentanil exerts a beneficial effect against excitotoxicity on the developing mouse brain, which is associated with a reduction in the size of ibotenate-induced brain lesion as well as prevention of some behavioral deficits in young mice. The long-term effect of neonatal exposure to remifentanil should be investigated.

It’s hardly news that the gastrointestinal tract is important to human health: It transports food from the mouth to the stomach, converts it into absorbable nutrients and stored energy, and shuttles waste back out of the body. If you don’t properly nourish yourself, you don’t live. It’s that simple. But in recent years, scientists have discovered that the GI system has an even bigger, more complex job than previously appreciated. It’s been linked to numerous aspects of health that have seemingly nothing to do with digestion, from immunity to emotional stress to chronic illnesses, including can...

Authors: Fard RK, Tabassi Z, Qorbani M, Hosseini S Abstract Delay in the initiation of breastfeeding is one of the problems of cesarean section.

Authors: Kurek Eken M, Şahin Ersoy G, Çetinkaya S, Çam Ç, Karateke A Abstract Planned caesarean delivery (CD) frequency is increasing in many countries, and elective CD accounts for 50% of preventable causes of neonatal respiratory morbidity. The clearing of fluid in the lungs is important for the establishment of normal gas exchange with inspired air. A defect in this clearance can result in respiratory problems in neonate, but on the other hand patients waiting for the onset of spontaneous labour pain, the increase in emergency CD, together with severe mortality and morbidity are causes of c...

Before Obamacare, insurers could consider the following pre-existing conditions: being pregnant, having had postpartum depression, being a survivor of sexual assault, having had a C-section or being a survivor of domestic violence. Under the AHCA, states are allowed to waive the requirement that insurers cover people with pre-existing conditions, meaning if you’re deeme...
