Bronchiolitis is the first lower respiratory tract viral infection manifesting in infants younger than 12 months of age. Our aim was to evaluate clinical and serological differences in infants with bronchiolitis from a single or from multiple viruses. Our secondary aim was to investigate differences in recurrent wheezing episodes after 12‐24‐36 months of follow‐up. We reviewed the clinical records for 486 full‐term infants hospitalized for bronchiolitis with at least one virus detected in the nasopharyngeal aspirate. In 431 (88.7%) patients one virus was detected and in 55 (11.3%) infants more than one virus was fo...

One of the most unrecognized factors in the development of mental health is the role of nutrition. The link between diet and mental health is growing as the field of Nutritional Psychiatry/Psychology expands. This field is becoming more impactful as epidemics continue to make headlines surrounding the health of our country and world. We know nutrition has substantial physical impacts, but it is the mental impacts of nutrition that are gaining traction with additional research and heightening awareness around this topic. Proper nutrition is what fuels our bodies and our bodies need a regular supply of fuel. Oxygen is part o...

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings serve as a warning to not be too selective in the application of prevention strategies. Further research is needed to understand how decision-makers can find the right balance between the choice of interventions, focus on high-risk populations, and geographical targeting to ensure the greatest impact of HIV prevention.

Authors: Rice L Abstract Heparin was discovered 100 years ago, and the heparin-induced thrombocytopenia syndrome was described 40 years ago. That the most powerful anticoagulant of the last century can also produce the most extreme prothrombotic diathesis is but one of the paradoxes that surround heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. Standard treatment is alternative anticoagulation. Advances continue to be made regarding pathophysiology, prevention, and treatment. Currently, an epidemic of overdiagnosis threatens the well-being of patients, so efforts to educate clinicians on when and how to make this diagnosis are pr...

Fisher The study of infectious disease outbreaks is required to train today’s epidemiologists. A typical way to introduce and explain key epidemiological concepts is through the analysis of a historical outbreak. There are, however, few training options that explicitly utilise real-ti...

(Natural News) The epidemic of chronic disorders among US children, now reported to represent well over 1/3 of fully-vaccinated children in America is likely iatrogenic (ie, physician-caused, prescription drug-induced, vaccine-induced, medical/surgical treatment-caused). (Article by Dr. Gary G. Kohls and Kenneth P. Stoller republished from GlobalResearch.ca) But the corporate medical and pharmaceutical industries both go through...

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings show that in order to most optimally impact on child outcome 30 community-based workers (CBWs) should ideally be paid with trained staff. Specialised input for more severe child difficulties is needed. PMID: 29214899 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions Dietary energy density has increased between the two surveys and few people consumed low energy-dense diets in line with recommendations. The change was largely due to increased energy density of older adult’s diets, while young adults had high dietary energy density at both time points. These data suggest efforts now focus on the evaluation of the role of modifying energy density of the diet to reduce the risk of weight gain in adults.
