For those too twitchy to sit still and focus on breathing, the ubiquitous mindfulness apps, self-help sheets and courses in schools and workplaces are little more than totems of uselessness. But you wouldn’t have this problem if you lived in France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland o r Portugal, because you’d be doing sophrology instead. It&rs...

We report the case of a 79-year-old man with severe, undiagnosed OSA who inhaled his fixed dental bridge during sleep. The inhaled foreign body came to rest in the lumen of the left main stem bronchus. The association of obesity with a body mass index of 30kg/m2, snoring with breathing pauses reported by his partner, nocturia, morning headache and an Epworth score of 11 led to polysomnography which confirmed OSA with an apnoea/hypopnoea index of 53 per hour. This case report emphasises that OSA may constitute a risk fact for foreign body inhalation in elderly subjects due to arousal-induced hyperventilation following the a...

Publication date: August 2018 Source:Polymer Degradation and Stability, Volume 154 Author(s): Zong-Min Zhu, Wen-Hui Rao, A-Hui Kang, Wang Liao, Yu-Zhong Wang Herein, expandable graphite (EG) and aluminum hypophosphite (AP) are used to prepare flame-retardant polystyrene (PS) composites. The flame-retardant properties of the PS composites are investigated by the limiting oxygen index (LOI) test, vertical burning test (UL-94) and cone calorimetry test (CC). With 15 wt% EG or AP incorporated alone, the PS composites show limited improvement in LOI, and fail to pass the UL-94 test. In contrast, with 10 wt% EG and 5 wt% ...

“Put me out of my misery!” I’ve pleaded to anyone within earshot in the throes of a grueling day, a rant from one feeling burnt out. There are days I want to pull my hair out, even the ones that aren’t gray. One night I caught myself grunting, “I hate my life,” while heading out the door at 12 a.m., after an already exhausting day in the OR. No sane person should ever say that. But the world of medicine nowadays is far from sane. After returning home for two hours of sleep, I drag myself to the office with a full patient-load, which is not bad in itself if it weren’t for that unset...
