Authors: Chen YW, Camp PG, Coxson HO, Road JD, Guenette JA, Hunt MA, Reid WD Abstract In addition to dyspnea and fatigue, pain is a prevalent symptom in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Understanding the relative prevalence, magnitude, and interference with aspects of daily living of these symptoms can improve COPD management. Therefore, the purposes of this study were to: (1) compare the prevalence and magnitude of dyspnea, fatigue, and pain and how each limits aspects of daily living; (2) determine the association between pain and the other two symptoms; and (3) assess the impact of these symptoms on...

Authors: Wołk K, Wołk A, Glinkowski W Abstract People with speech, hearing, or mental impairment require special communication assistance, especially for medical purposes. Automatic solutions for speech recognition and voice synthesis from text are poor fits for communication in the medical domain because they are dependent on error-prone statistical models. Systems dependent on manual text input are insufficient. Recently introduced systems for automatic sign language recognition are dependent on statistical models as well as on image and gesture quality. Such systems remain in early development and are based mo...

Authors: Mensah GA, Boyce CA, Price LN, Mishoe HO, Engelgau MM Abstract In August 2016, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) released its Strategic Vision for charting a course for research over the next decade. This vision was the culmination of an unprecedented process that engaged diverse stakeholders from across the United States and around the globe. The process resulted in four mission-oriented goals and eight strategic objectives that provide an overall framework for advancing research in heart, lung, and blood diseases and sleep disorders. In this perspective, we address opportunities that ...

by Drew Rosielle (@drosielle)I ’m a little bored of all the discussion about physician-assisted suicide. Mostly it’s because legalizing PAS is going to have zero impact on nearly all of my patients, and I think the significant amount of press and energy it gets is a distraction from other things which actually would improve t he lives (and deaths) of the patients and families I care for as a palliative doc.The last time I blogged about PAS waspart of my euphemisms series last year, when I elaborated why I did not like terms like ‘assisted death’ or ‘aid-in-dying’ and prefer ‘assist...

Authors: Banzhoff S, Del Mar Ropero M, Menzel G, Salmen T, Gross M, Caffier PP Abstract Playing a musical instrument can affect physical and mental health. A literature review was conducted to determine the prevalence of health problems among oboists, which medical conditions can be caused or exacerbated by playing, whether oboe playing can be a protective factor, and whether recommendations are possible as to who should or should not play the oboe. Searches in 7 databases (Medline, Embase, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, SocIndex, PsyIndex, Psychinfo) yielded a total of 950 studies; after exclusion of duplicates...

Many people die or become disabled because of motor vehicle accidents. Scientific data suggest that sleepy drivers or those driving at odd hours are more likely to make driving mistakes. Patients with obstructive sleep apnea and narcolepsy have been found to exhibit higher rates of falling asleep while driving. Treatment enhances the vigilance of these drivers. Tests measuring the extent of daytime sleepiness or drowsiness while driving can help identify at-risk drivers. There is a need to develop clear regulations governing periodic assessment of drivers ’ risks of falling asleep at the wheel, especially commercial drivers.
