Could some ADHD be a type of sleep disorder? That would fundamentally change how we treat it.

Over the past two decades, U.S. parents and teachers have reported epidemic levels of children with trouble focusing, impulsive behavior and so much energy that they are bouncing off walls. Educators, policymakers and scientists have referred to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, as a national crisis and have spent billions of dollars looking into its cause. They've looked at genetics, brain development, exposure to […]Related:Hospital staffers took photos of a patient’s genitals — and the foreign object lodged thereSelena Gomez’s kidney transplant: Young, minority women disproportionately affected by lupusTo fight deadly hepatitis outbreak, San Diego begins power-washing streets with bleach

Beatrice BoniottiAbstractThere is currently an increased interest in the use of serological approaches in combination with traditional cell-mediated immunity-based techniques to improve the detection of tuberculosis (TB)-infected animals. In the present study, we developed and validated two different serological TB-detection assays using four antigens, MPB70, MPB...

Species of Neobenedenia are harmful monogenean ectoparasites that infect economically important bony fishes in aquaculture worldwide, however, the species boundaries between two of the most notorious taxa, N. melleni and N. girellae, has been a topic of contention for decades. Historically, identificati...

Authors: Ott U, Thiese MS, Ronna BB, Hegmann K, Hegmann KT Abstract OBJECTIVES: Working-age adults are disproportionately impacted by opioid misuse. Factors associated with opioid misuse in people with workers compensation (WC) claims are not well studied. WC in some states is a "captured" market making it a more efficient site for researching the opioids epidemic. A pilot study was conducted to identify factors associated with opioid use using a large WC insurer's claims in Utah. METHODS: This was a case-control study using a large WC insurer's database. We conducted secondary data analyses of a de-i...

Brandenberger, KJ, Ingalls, CP, Rupp, JC, and Doyle, JA. Consumption of a 5-mg melatonin supplement does not affect 32.2-km cycling time trial performance. J Strength Cond Res 32(10): 2872–2877, 2018—Some studies suggest that exogenous melatonin supplementation may improve athletic performance in hot humid environments because of its precooling effect. However, melatonin is also consumed as a sleep aid for its depressive effects on the central nervous system (CNS), which may hinder performance. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine whether consuming a 5-mg supplement of melatonin would affect perform...

This study examined the effect of β-alanine as a potential anti-inflammatory agent during intense military training. Twenty soldiers (20.1 ± 0.6 years) from an elite combat unit were randomly assigned to either a β-Alanine (BA) or placebo (PL) group. Soldiers were provided with 12 g·d−1 of either BA or PL for 7 days between 2 intensive periods of navigational training and restricted sleep. During the initial training period, soldiers navigated on average 27.8 km·d−1 with ∼50% of their body mass in their packs for 5 days. Soldiers returned to base and began a 7-day supplementat...

In this report, we describe a case of 21-year-old with a history of seizure disorder and developmental delay that presented for dental surgery under general anesthesia and developed type I AV block following the simultaneous administration of neostigmine and glycopyrrolate to reverse a nondepolarizing neuromuscular block with rocuronium at the end of his surgery. We suggest that the chronic use of antiepileptic drugs in this patient in combination with neostigmine and glycopyrrolate lead to AV block in this patient. We also review similar cases reported in the literature and suggest an explanation for this observed phenome...

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine which factors influence inpatient and postdischarge opioid use after orthopaedic trauma. Design: Retrospective cohort study. Setting: Single Level 1 trauma center. Participants: The study included 235 adult trauma patients treated operatively for fracture with minimum 1 overnight hospital stay. Intervention: Operative fracture management. Main Outcome Measurement: Total opioid pain medication use, in oral morphine equivalents, in inpatient and postdischarge settings. Results: Controlling for length of stay, inpatient opioid use was negatively correla...
