Authors: King S, Werther K, Ruelling A, Kim E Abstract A case study approach was used to describe faculty facilitators' perspectives on the creation and implementation of an interprofessional experiential learning opportunity for students at an aphasia camp. The facilitators serendipitously created an interprofessional experiential learning opportunity for speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, and physical therapy students volunteering at the aphasia camp. During focus groups several weeks after the camp, students discussed the interprofessional nature of their camp experiences and stated they had learne...

(CNN/CBS) — At least 1,300 people have died from the flu so far this season, according to a preliminary estimate released Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There have been at least 2.6 million flu illnesses and 23,000 flu-related hospitalizations, according to the analysis. So far this season, the CDC has received reports of 10 children who have died from the flu, four more than the week before. Experts have warned that flu is hitting the United States early this year, and there are concerns that this early season could mean a particularly severe season overall. Flu spread significantly in ...

Authors: Hsieh CDT, Warden LCGI, Butler MJM, Nakanishi E, Asano Y Abstract The spectrum of the neurological effects of high-altitude exposure can range from high-altitude headache and acute mountain sickness, to the more severe end of the spectrum with high-altitude cerebral edema. In general, patients with known unstable preexisting neurological conditions and those patients with residual neurological deficits from a preexisting neurological condition are discouraged from climbing to high altitudes because of the risk of exacerbation or worsening of symptoms. Although multiple sclerosis exacerbations can be trigge...

DEs have mainly been developed and used in Europe. As we are able to use the DEs safely due to the current advanced level of technology, use of DEs has been increasing rapidly over the last decade. Unlike placement of SEs, which simply requires craniotomy, DE placement generally requires stereotactic techniques such as frame-based stereotactic or robotic arm-based methods....
