Association between allergic disease, sleep-disordered breathing, and childhood nocturnal enuresis: a population-based case-control study

We examined whether allergic disease and SDB were associated with childhood NE.MethodsData were assessed from the 2007 –2012 Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database. We enrolled 4308 children aged 5–18 years having NE diagnosis and age- and sex-matched 4308 children as the control group. The odds ratios of NE were calculated to determine an association with preexisting allergic disease and SDB.ResultsA total of 8616 children were included in the analysis. Prevalence of allergic diseases and SDB was significantly higher for the NE group than the control group (allp

Herein, we synthesized a novel photocatalytic composite material of I-deficient BiO1.2I0.6/WO3 by solvothermal method coupling with thermal decomposition. The PL spectrum and photoelectrochemical tests found that WO3 compounded by 40 wt% BiO1.2I0.6 greatly promoted...

Authors: Ramos AR, Tarraf W, Wu B, Redline S, Cai J, Daviglus ML, Gallo L, Mossavar-Rahmani Y, Perreira KM, Zee P, Zeng D, Gonzalez HM Abstract INTRODUCTION: To determine if sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), daytime sleepiness, insomnia, and sleep duration predict seven-year neurocognitive decline in US Hispanics/Latinos (N = 5247). METHODS: The exposures were baseline SDB, daytime sleepiness, insomnia, and sleep duration. The outcomes were change in episodic learning and memory (B-SEVLT-Sum and SEVLT-Recall), language (word fluency [WF]), processing speed (Digit Symbol Substitution), and a cognitive ...

This study intended to compare the benefits of 2 mind-body interventions-yoga and mindfulness-in a hospital setting. Design: The research team performed a retrospective analysis of outcome data obtained from a hospital's programs. Setting: The study took place at a mind-body center at a hospital in Athens, GA (USA). Participants: Participants were 46 individuals enrolled either in a yoga (n = 24) or a mindfulness (n = 22) intervention program at the hospital. Intervention: Participants self-selected a mind-body-intervention program offered at the hospital: yoga or mindfulness. They received guided training ...

Discussion Lyme disease (LD) is caused by several genospecies of Borrelia burgdorferi senu lato that are transmitted by ticks of the Ixodes ricinus complex. In the U.S. and Europe it is the most common vector-borne disease. It is named for Lyme, Connecticut in the 1970s when it was “discovered,” but there are reports of LD-type disease in Europe since 1883. There are 18 distinct genospecies with B. afzelii, B. garinii and B. burgdorferi sensu stricto being the 3 most common ones causing human infection. There are many species of Ixodes ticks but only 4 commonly bite humans. Ixodes ricinus mainly in Europe, I, p...

Chahl Elderly fall detection systems based on wireless body area sensor networks (WBSNs) have increased significantly in medical contexts. The power consumption of such systems is a critical issue influencing the overall practicality of the WBSN. Reducing the power consumption of these networks while maintaining acceptable performance poses a challenge. Several power reduction techniques can be employed to tackle this issue. A human vital signs monitoring system (HVSMS) has been proposed here to measure vital parameters of the elderly, including heart rate and fall detection based on heartbeat and accelerometer sens...

AbstractBackgroundClinical evidence of the autologous platelet concentrates effects on the patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) after endodontic surgery is still limited.ObjectivesTo investigate the effect of the advanced platelet-rich fibrin (A-PRF+) membrane application upon patient postoperative pain, and quality of life in endodontic surgery.Materials and methodsA two-parallel-arm randomized clinical trial was made comparing endodontic surgery with or without A-PRF+ as adjunctive treatment. Fifty individuals comprehending 50 apical lesions (second premolar to the second premolar) of upper maxilla were included. Pa...

A question I’ve asked myself many times! As a small profession with a long history (as long as physiotherapy, TBH), it does seem odd that there are many, many pain rehabilitation services where never an occupational therapist has darkened the door. Some of the reasons lie within the profession: in general, occupational therapists are busy being clinicians and have little time for research. In New Zealand, few occupational therapists pursue higher degrees, and many avoid statistical analyses, experimental design, randomised controlled studies. In fact, some occupational therapists have argued that the tailored appr...

ConclusionsBronchodilator dose responsiveness may be useful for phenotyping and may be of utility in practice and future studies focused on asthma outcomes or quantification of treatment responses. In children and adolescents, this phenotype of poor bronchodilator responsiveness may be associated with periods of relatively stable disease yet marked airway constriction in response to triggers, including tobacco smoke, respiratory infections/pneumonia, and aeroallergens.
