It is well established that iodine excess inhibits transiently the thyroid function. As developing foetus depends on maternal thyroid hormones (TH) supply, more knowledge are needed about the plausible effects that repeated KI intake can cause in this...

ConclusionsAssisted reproductive techniques and in-vitro culture have been associated with an increased frequency of embryo splitting. This has been postulated to be linked to the in-vitro hatching method observed at the blastocyst stage of development. This case report highlights the need to objectively assess any splitting of the ICM, beyond standard grading of the quality of the ICM and the trophectoderm. Such assessments of ICM splitting should be routine practice in clinical embryology when selecting embryos for transfer.

Fetal programming refers to the response of a fetus to hostile uterine conditions with lifelong effects and possibly, in turn, providing a poorer uterine environment for future offspring. Fetal programming might have a greater effect in populations t...

The objective data comes from what you measure as an outcome. The device is the trainer. Again, use pressure threshold and then set out to measure the outcomes, a scale, a swallow exam, a cough flow rate, a voice quality, etc. Participant: How do you establish goals? There are norms for peak cough, is this what you use? Kiourkas: Respiratory uses cough peak flow to qualify for noninvasive ventilation for ALS and neuromuscular patients. The norms are different for each person. Suggested ranges are used as a guide to assist in determining if the patient is getting worse at subsequent visits. We also use a SNIP (sniffing pres...
