Starvation, exercise and the stress response
We describe how the body adapts to decreased nutrient supply, increased energy demands and to stress.
Authors: Arrigoni F, Bruno F, Palumbo P, Zugaro L, Zoccali C, Barile A, Masciocchi C Abstract Background: Interventional radiology, thanks to its low invasiveness and possibility to reduce the average time for the patients to come back to their normal activity, is becoming more and more promising and diffused in multiple fields. Employed without needles, MRgFUS is probably the less invasive techniques among the ones belonging to the field of interventional radiology. Purpose: To evaluate safety and effectiveness of MRgFUS in the treatment of a rare and benign, though disabling, bone lesion: intra-articular osteobla...
I am not trolling or hoping to start a heated political discussion. And I don't wish to debates the merits of the proposal, nor its chances of passing. But Medicare For All is going to put Kaiser out of business, correct? I mean, they will still own their hospitals and clinics and patients will still engage with their Permanente physicians, but all the fat will be trimmed. Same thing for the Mayo Clinic, IHC, and all the others, correct? Is the reason nobody talks about this is...

ConclusionThe combination of real-time ultrasound guidance and placement of an intrauterine balloon through the cervix may increase safety during the procedure by providing clear visualization of the uterine cavity and septum border during resection.
ConclusionThe laparoscopic reverse technique is an alternative approach to face retrocervical or rectovaginal nodules infiltrating the anterior rectal wall. In this technique, the separation of the nodule from the rectal wall is performed at the end of the surgery and not at the beginning as performed within the traditional technique. This enables the surgeon to perform a more precise dissection of the endometriotic nodule from the rectal wall because of the increased mobility of the bowel. The wider range of movements serves as an ergonomic advantage for the subsequent dissection of the lesion from the rectum, allowi...

Publication date: Available online 21 August 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Naomi Fleming, Rowena CockerhamAbstractGeneral anaesthesia in obstetrics is reducing with a reported use in only 4% of caesarean sections in 2017–2018. Obstetric surgery is often urgent, requiring effective team communication and a rapid, focused preoperative assessment. Physiological changes of pregnancy increase the incidence of aspiration, desaturation and failed intubation. In addition, the rapidly evolving circumstances add additional stress, impacting on performance. Hypotension from aortocaval compr...
