Blast-Induced tinnitus and spontaneous firing changes in the rat dorsal cochlear nucleus - Luo H, Pace E, Zhang X, Zhang J.

Exposure to high-pressure blast shock waves is known to cause tinnitus. Although the underlying mechanisms may involve damage to structures in the ear and/or direct brain impact, which triggers a cascade of neuroplastic changes in both auditory and nonaudi...

The Geminid meteor shower reaches its peak this week, with up to 75 streaks an hour – which can be multicolouredThe Geminids are one of the mostreliable meteor showers of the year, with some 75 bright streaks an hour predicted to be visible from a dark site. They will radiate in all directions from the constellation Gemini, from which the shower takes its name. They are distinguished from other meteor showers in that the bright trails can be multicoloured. Although mostly white, yellow is quite common and green, red and blue have been known. It is thought that the colours come from traces of metals in the dust grains...

ConclusionsAbnormal laryngeal and lower airway findings are common in burns patients and the incidence tends to increase with severity of the burns. Most patients with abnormal findings remain dysphonic decades after the initial injury. Larynx, the inlet to the airway, is exposed to the most intense thermal damage and highest concentration of chemical in inhalational injury. Airway injury is common and may result in long term morbidity. Healing of this tissue architecture is prolonged and different from cutaneous burn. Many patients receive prolonged intubation for medical complications that arise due to the burn injury. T...

By ROBERTO ASCIANO We are living in an age where thousands upon thousands of individuals and companies are trying to find faster, better and cheaper ways to get things done leveraging the latest digital technologies. We are so completely surrounded by efforts to innovate, disrupt and accelerate, that it may come as a surprise to find out that “innovation” has been around ever since our earliest ancestors shed their body hair and started walking upright. Since those early days, our ancestors have sought solutions to their everyday problems and the “technology” they leveraged was whatever the environ...

If you're one of the more than 20 million Americans who suffer from chronic kidney disease (CKD), your doctor has probably told you there isn't much they can do for you. Mainstream medicine doesn't have a cure for CKD. What they do have is a lot of drugs to treat the symptoms of it. And most of the drugs will leave you worse off than before you started taking them… Like ESAs, which are prescribed to treat anemia caused by chronic kidney disease. These dangerous drugs can cause strokes, heart attacks, blood clots and seizures. And if your kidneys fail, your only options are dialysis or a kidney transplant...
