Abstract PROBLEM/CONDITION: Drug overdoses are a leading cause of injury death in the United States, resulting in approximately 52,000 deaths in 2015. Understanding differences in illicit drug use, illicit drug use disorders, and overall drug overdose deaths in metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas is important for informing public health programs, interventions, and policies. REPORTING PERIOD: Illicit drug use and drug use disorders during 2003-2014, and drug overdose deaths during 1999-2015. DESCRIPTION OF DATA: The National Survey of Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) collects information through face-to-fa...

Abstract Pain control in total shoulder arthroplasty demands a multidisciplinary approach with collaboration between patients, surgeon, and anesthetist. A multimodal approach with preemptive medication, regional blockade, local anesthetics, and a combination of acetaminophen, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, tramadol, and gabapentinoids postoperatively leads to pain control and patient satisfaction. Assessment of patients' expectations constitutes a vital aspect of the preoperative patient evaluation. Educating and psychologically preparing patients reduces postoperative pain. Patients with anxiety and depress...

Conclusions: Vascular pressure gradients in renal vasculature suggest the presence of a vascular waterfall at baseline. Although this phenomenon disappeared in endotoxemic dogs, it could be restored with β-blocker therapy (esmolol).

CONCLUSIONS: There may be differences between the F20-29 and F30-39 groups and their family members regarding risk for diseases affecting the immune system. This is in line with different activity of the immune system measured in blood for the disorders and may add information regarding etiology and pathology of these psychiatric diseases. Further studies including a greater number of subjects, as well as confirmation of the immunological diseases through blood samples are needed. PMID: 29141491 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

A new pill has been approved by the U.S. Food &Drug Administration (FDA) that, when swallowed, notifies a monitoring device you wear that you actually took the medication. Sounds invasive and a gross violation of your privacy? Well, it would be. Except for the small problem that every year, millions of people say or agree to take a medication, and then stop taking it when they start to feel better. It’s a long-standing problem for people diagnosed with certain types of mental illness, and leads to serious and significant problems — for the patient, their family, and society as a whole. The new medication i...

Myocardial strain is a measure of deformation of a myocardial segment relative to its initial length. Strain rate is the rate at which the deformation occurs. This is in effect the gradient between velocities at two points. Strain and strain rate can be measured echocardiographically using tissue Doppler and 2D (two dimensional) speckle tracking. A change of radial myocardial strain of more than 9.5% has been shown to have a sensitivity of 83.9% and a specificity of 81.4% for detection of myocardial viability. Change in longitudinal myocardial strain more than 14.6% had a sensitivity of 86.7% and speci...

Unless, you have been avoiding me this year, you will know I have been photographing a lot of birds. Well over 120 native and migrant species in the UK so far. I am stockpiling the best photos for my forthcoming book: “Chasing Wild Geese“. One thing that everyone but the most experienced photographers struggle with is catching a crisp photo of a bird in flight, specifically as it takes off from a perch. I have managed it once or twice, but the issue tends to be that you need a short shutter speed to catch the action. Unfortunately, that then either means that your depth of field is very short (so focus is in th...

Authors: Kleinjung T, Thüring C, Güntensperger D, Neff P, Meyer M Abstract Neurofeedback is a noninvasive neuromodulation technique employing real-time display of brain activity in terms of electroencephalography (EEG) signals to teach self-regulation of distinct patterns of brain activity or influence brain activity in a targeted manner. The benefit of this approach for control of symptoms in attention deficit disorders, hyperactivity, depression, and migraine has been proven. Studies in recent years have also repeatedly shown this treatment to improve tinnitus symptoms, although it has not become e...

(Int J Obstet Anesth 2017;29:57–63) Chronic postsurgical pain (CPSP) has been widely studied. Its occurrence rate has been found to vary widely depending on the surgical procedure performed. Since cesarean delivery (CD) is considered the most common surgery performed worldwide, understanding CPSP in this patient population is important. In this prospective study from Scotland, the investigators sought to determine the rate of persistent pain after CD in an urban patient population consisting largely of women from a socially deprived background. Secondarily, the relationships between maternal anxiety, socioeconomic s...
