Discussion Fats and fatty acids are essential for good human health. Saturated fats have hydrogen pairs linked to each carbon on the carbon backbone. They are solid or semi-solid at room temperature. Common examples are butter, lard, or hardened vegetable shortening. They are linked to higher cholesterol and triglycerides and only a small amount of them are recommended to be consumed in the diet. Unsaturated fats have one or more hydrogen atoms missing from the carbon backbone. They are liquid at room temperature. Monounsaturated fatty acids have one hydrogen pair that is missing from the carbon backbone. They are liquid at room temperature but start to become solid when placed into the refrigerator. Common examples are Canola oil, olive oil, peanut oil and avocados. They lower total and LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol. Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) have two or more hydrogen pairs that are missing from the carbon backbone. They are liquid at room temperature and when cooled. Common examples are corn oil, soybean oil, and the seeds and oil made from safflower, sesame, and sunflower seeds. They lower total and LDL cholesterol but also lower HDL production. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fats derived from eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). They are commonly found in fatty fish such as mackerel, albacore tuna, sardines, salmon, herring, anchovies, sardines and lake trout. They can also be found in Canola oil, s...
HelpAge International. 09/2017 This 100-page document is the Training Handbook for a course in Inclusion of Age and Disability in Humanitarian Action, which was jointly developed by the Age and Disability consortium, a group of seven agencies working to promote age and disability inclusive humanitarian assistance. The training aims to develop critical insights into gender-sensitive age and disability inclusion issues to improve programming and reduce barriers so that people with disabilities and older people are equally included and benefit from the humanitarian response.

HelpAge International. 09/2017 This 60-minute online course supports humanitarian actors to deliver gender-sensitive, age, and disability inclusive emergency response. It will help plan and enhance accessible assistance and safety and dignity for older women and men, and for women, men, girls, and boys with disabilities. It details how to understand the barriers experienced by older people and people with disabilities during a humanitarian crisis, and the increased exposure to risk when they do not access assistance.

A little bit about me: I went to two different 4-year undergraduate schools (transferred out of the first one due to clinical depression). Let's call them college 1 and college 2 (the most recent college I am at). Currently a senior in undergrad, with 3 quarters left of school (hoping I can raise my GPA in that time). I am planning on taking a gap year and in that time working with a local community in a healthcare-related way. Race/ethnicity: Chinese, Mexican, White... Do I have a chance at a top medical school?
Hello everyone! I hope this thread finds you all well. I was wondering if some residents, or attendings, could weigh in on my situation. Long story short, I have a unique background that exposed me to PM&R for my entire life (family member is disabled). As such, I went into med school with physiatry as on my short list of interests. However, I had family/ personal health problems during my first year, failed two courses and thus had to repeat the year. Since that point, I haven't failed... Third year DO with questions
CONCLUSIONS: Quercetin and the aqueous extracts decrease intracellular lipid accumulation by down-regulation of lipogenesis and up-regulation of lipolysis. PMID: 29469041 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: These results suggest that PIN possess potent antifibrotic effects that can be explained on its antioxidant properties. It ameliorates oxidative stress and inflammation during induction of fibrogenesis via its ability to augment celular antioxidant defenses, activating Nrf2-mediated HO-1 expression and modulating NF-κB and TGF-β1/Smad signaling pathway.

CONCLUSIONS: Appropriate and collaborative management is necessary with the "ABCDE" approach: Airway and im- mobilization of the neck; Breathing; Circulation; Disability and Exposure. A fibre-optic examination is the gold standard of airway diagnosis. Laryngeal intubation is the most effective treatment for protection of the respiratory integrity. The management of circulation includes the implementation of a venous route to initiate administration of IVFs, preferably with isotonic saline. Vasopressors and inotropes are used as second line agents. A multidisciplinary and team approach is preferred, in order to ac...
Authors: Hachimi-Idrissi S, Watelet JB Abstract First-line attitudes in acute medicine. The often complex problems of the trauma and/or severely ill patient present many challenges to front-line emergency staff. Multiple injuries and/or systems of the body involved require careful and timely prioritization and intervention. Optimum evaluation and resuscitation involves repetitive, systematic ipproaches that are known as the "primary", "secondary" and "tertiary" surveys. The primary survey focuses in general on the ABCDE approach of "Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Disability, Expo...
Conclusions: A linear relationship was observed between surgical timing and 1-year mortality. Each 10-hour delay from admission to surgery was associated with an estimated 5% higher odds of 1-year mortality. Therefore, we suggest that hip fractures should be treated urgently similar to other time-sensitive pathology such as stroke and myocardial ischemia. Level of Evidence: Prognostic Level III. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.
