“This is a great excuse to look at some really old books” grinned Iain Milne, Head of Heritage at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (RCPE) as he gingerly opened a copy of an encyclopaedia about the health benefits of water—published in Venice in 1553—and carefully propped it up on a pair of pillows on the table in front of him. The book was one of the oldest volumes on show at Fashionable Diseases, an event on April 6 organised as part of the 2017 Edinburgh International Science Festival.
CONCLUSION: Essential and dystonic vocal tremors responded differently to treatment. Dystonic vocal tremors responded significantly to treatment with botulinum toxin but not oral propranolol. Essential vocal tremors did not respond significantly to either treatment, perhaps due to the small number of patients, which is a limitation of this research.
CONCLUSION: Patients arrived very sick and displayed poor survival after deceased donor transplantation.
CONCLUSION: Except for the STOP-BANG questionnaire, subjective evaluation of sleepiness, sleep quality, perception of onset, and total sleep time are not important parameters for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea, which reinforces the need for an active search for better management of these patients.
