One of the fundamental distinctions we need to make when working with people who experience pain is to understand the difference between experiencing pain – and the behaviour or actions or responses we make to this experience. This is crucial because we can never know “what it is like” to experience pain – and all we have to rely on as external observers is what we see the person doing. Differentiating between the various dimensions associated with our experience of pain makes it far easier to address each part in the distinct ways needed. Let me explain. We know the current definition of pain &ndas...

CONCLUSIONS: Based on the results with low rate of major adverse effects from multiple centers, we concluded that HIFU is safe in treating patients with benign uterine diseases. With development of this technique and more experience on the part of the physicians, the rates of the major adverse effects will be further lowered.

Publication date: September 2018 Source:Microchemical Journal, Volume 141 Author(s): Jorge Sanjurjo-Sánchez, Joeri Kaal, Juan Luis Montero Fenollós The Middle and Late Uruk period (3600–3100 BCE) is characterised by the diffusion of the Uruk culture in Mesopotamia and surroundings. Uruk sites are recognised by a special kind of pottery called bevelled rim bowls (BRBs), which comprise up to 80% of all recovered Uruk pottery. BRBs are very basic, handmade bowls produced in large quantities but their function is still under debate. Several uses have been proposed, including cooking, measurement of cerea...

U.S. Chemical Safety Board. 05/13/2018 This 154-page document is the final investigation report into the August 31, 2017, fire at the Arkema chemical plant in Crosby, Texas. In the days leading up to the incident, an unprecedented amount of rain fell at the plant due to Hurricane Harvey, causing equipment to flood and fail. As a result, chemicals stored at the plant decomposed and burned, releasing fumes and smoke into the air. The report calls for more robust industry guidance to help hazardous chemical facilities better prepare for extreme weather events, like flooding, so that similar incidents can be avoided. (PDF)

The following is a guest blog post by Justin Campbell, Vice President, Strategy, at Galen Healthcare Solutions. I Can’t Get No Satisfaction…but I try, and I try, and I try, and I try – Rolling Stones In a 2018 Medscape survey exploring the professional satisfaction of providers, 42 percent of 15,000 survey respondents reported feeling burnt out with their jobs, up from an overall rate of 40 percent in 2017. In recent years, physician burnout has become a serious industry issue, with national policy discussions ensuing on how to best combat the problem. Researchers have drawn correlations b...

I log onto KevinMD every day to get my much-needed dose of physician commiseration. At least once a day, one of us writes an article about burnout. It typically leaves me feeling quite validated. I particularly enjoy reading the comments section, as many of you make me laugh with your physician reality-based humor. I am more burned out than I ever hoped to be. I work in primary care, have a family and my spouse is a surgeon. My spouse and I are equally burned out, despite our differing specialties. I have “PCP burnout” qualified by: patient-centered care, clicks, forms, feeling like a doormat, patient satisfact...

For most of us, springtime marks the return of life to a dreary landscape, bringing birdsong, trees in bud, and daffodils in bloom. But if you work for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the coming of spring means the return of nasty diseases spread by ticks and mosquitoes. The killjoys at CDC celebrated the end of winter with a bummer of a paper showing that infections spread by ticks doubled in the United States from 2004 to 2016. (Tick populations have exploded in recent decades, perhaps due to climate change and loss of biodiversity.) Lyme disease The most common infection spread by ticks in the US i...
