Patient participation in hand hygiene among health professionals.

CONCLUSION: HPs showed limited knowledge about HH, opposing recommendations on the topic. The contradiction between the HPs acceptance and attitude when questioned by the patient regarding HH was revealed, reflecting a lack of knowledge about the WHO program and the need to implement educational practices in health.

This study examines the extent to which mental health, alcohol use, and certain sleep hygiene behaviors predict sleep problems within an Army National Guard sample (N = 438). Materials and Methods: This manuscript is part of a larger study approved through the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Medical Center Institutional Review Board. Mailed surveys were sent to Minnesota Army National Guard soldiers collecting data on sleep hygiene behaviors, mental health symptoms (post-traumatic stress disorder and depression), and alcohol use. Predictors of sleep problems were evaluated with ordinary least squares multiple linear regre...

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...

CONCLUSION: Although pain perception has multiple complex influences, the greatest variability seen in response to opioids among postoperative patients known to date can be traced to genetic differences in opioid metabolism. Further study is needed to determine the clinical significance of these genetic associations. PMID: 29791710 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: April 2018 Source:New Carbon Materials, Volume 33, Issue 2 Author(s): Yong-zhen An, Chun-hua Wang, Peng Miao, Xiao-xu Wang, Jie-ying Liang, Jie Liu Biofilm carriers and effective microorganisms (EMs) are both important to improve the decontamination performance of biofilms for wastewater. The decontamination performance of biofilms using polyester (PET), polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), carbon fibers (CFs) and electrochemically-treated CFs as biofilm carriers for EMs were investigated by comparing the concentrations of the chemical oxygen demand (COD), total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) of wastewater ...

Publication date: August 2018 Source:Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, Volume 104 Author(s): Meng-ge Zhao, Xue-ping Sheng, Ya-ping Huang, Yi-ting Wang, Cui-hua Jiang, Jian Zhang, Zhi-qi Yin The effects of triterpenic acids-enriched fraction from Cyclocarya paliurus (CPT) on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) were investigated using in vivo and in vitro models. In high fat diet-induced Wister rats, CPT significantly increased superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity and glutathione/oxidized glutathione (GSH/GSSG) ratio, reduced malondialdehyde (MDA) and protein carbonyl (PCO) levels. Moreover, CPT restored mitochondrial ...
