In conclusion, this study demonstrates that thermal injury after NIR-PIT can be avoided by either employing a cooling system or by lowering the power density of the light source and prolonging the exposure time such that the total energy is constant. Thus, thermal damage is preventable side effect of NIR-PIT. PMID: 29348898 [PubMed]

By Sandee LaMotte, CNN (CNN) — Move over, prehistoric bears. Humans have loved honey since the Stone Age. Rock art pictures of honey harvesting, which at first glance look like drawings from A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh, date to about 8000 B.C. Beeswax has been found on pottery dating as far back as 7000 B.C., most likely used for waterproofing. The ancient Egyptians offered honey to the gods and then joined the Greeks, Romans and Chinese in using it as a salve for wounds and a treatment for fevers and stomach ailments. Today, proponents of honey tout its miraculous healing properties, claiming that it can prev...

a Jing Li Ethanol extract (EE) from Periplaneta americana (PA) is the main ingredient of Kangfuxin, which is a popular traditional chinese medicine (TCM) and has long been used for the clinical treatment of burns, wounds and ulcers. We compared the wound-healing activities of three extracts of PA using cutaneous wound-healing in mice as the bioactivity model. These three extracts were EE, total polysaccharide and total protein. We also tracked bioactive fractions in the EE by organic reagent extraction, column chromatography and HPLC. Seven compounds were successfully identified from the water elution fraction of the...

Image: Ars Electronica | CC BY-NC-ND 2.0) ___ From Healthcare to Warfare: How to Regulate Brain Technology (University of Basel press release): “The term “dual-use” refers to technology that can be used for both beneficial (i.e., medical) and harmful (i.e., military of terroristic) aims. Until recently, most dual-use technology emerged especially in virology and bacteriology. In the last years, however, military-funded research has entered the domain of neuroscience and neurotechnology. This has resulted in a rapid growth in brain technology prototypes aimed at modulating the emotions, cognition, and beha...

by Vickie LeffEvery day, we get involved in unbelievable and incredible situations. Tragedy, sadness, horrific trauma, despair, and hopelessness all wrap themselves around the cases we drop into. We step onto the stage and become part of the story.Moral distress – the discomfort, angst, and frustration related to situations in which we think we know the “right thing” to do, but cannot due to the situation – is endemic to palliative care and hospice work. Some examples are:Aggressive chemotherapy for a dying cancer patient with days to live.Dumping the truth on a patient overwhelmed and alone.Fo...

Electrosurgical vessel joining is commonly performed in surgical procedures to maintain hemostasis. This process requires elevated temperature to denature the tissue and while compression is applied, the tissue can be joined together. The elevated temperature can cause thermal damages to the surrounding tissues. In order to minimize these damages, it is critical to understand how the tissue properties change and how that affects the thermal spread. The purpose of this study is to investigate the changes of tissue thermal conductivity and how the changes correlate to thermal dose during the joining process. We propose a hyb...

I am in my last year of pharmacy school, and going through rotations really opened my eyes to how much I hate clinical pharmacy. As the time draws closer and closer to residency applications, I dread thinking about having to do clinical pharmacy work for the next year of my life before moving on to the unknown. I got pretty down on my last rotation, waking up every single morning way too early and being forced to do things that I hate so much. I am now burned out, and I have never hated... I hate clinical pharmacy. Am I the only one?
