Authors: Liu SH, Lai CT, Chen HR, Lin WL, Yamada S, Lugtu IC, Chou YH, Yang CCH, Kuo TB, Chen SA, Lo LW Abstract Sleep and estrogen levels have an impact on neural regulation and are associated with cardiovascular (CV) events. We investigated the effects of estrogen on heart rate variability (HRV) and circadian cycle in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). Polysomnographic recording was performed in seven male and seven female SHRs during sleep. The electroencephalogram (EEG) and electromyogram (EMG) were evaluated to define active waking (AW), quiet sleep (QS), and paradoxical sleep (PS) stages. Cardiac activit...

This study compared the risks of ischemic stroke/systemic embolism (ISSE) and major bleeding in patients with NVAF and stage IV-V CKD treated with rivaroxaban or warfarin.MethodsPatients with NVAF and stage IV-V CKD who initiated rivaroxaban or warfarin treatment between November 2011 and June 2018 were selected from the Optum® Deidentified EHR Database. Propensity score (PS)-matching was used to balance rivaroxaban and warfarin patients on 112 measured baseline covariates. ISSE and major bleeding events over two years following treatment initiation were ascertained with validated endpoint definitions. Outcomes were an...

Nguyen, Tetsuro SakaiAbstractCare for end-stage organ failure through transplant is one of the landmark accomplishments of the modern medicine. At the same time, organ transplant is a resource-intensive service that has been under increasing scrutiny in this era of cost containment. A detailed understanding of the economic implications of organ quality, recipient characteristics, and allocation policy is vital for the transplant professionals. Prior studies of kidney transpl...

Harvesting tissue from failing kidneys and autotransplantation of tissue progenitors could theoretically delay the need for dialysis. Here we use healthy and end-stage human adult kidneys to robustly expand proliferative kid...

Authors: Manske A, Schmidt SJ Abstract Mediators of Problematic Social Media Use in Adolescence as Possible Mechanisms of Change in Psychotherapy Social media are omnipresent in the lives of adolescents. Problematic use of social media has been linked to adverse mental health outcomes including depression, anxiety, suicidality, self-harm, body dissatisfaction and eating pathology. Preliminary evidence suggests that interventions aiming at reducing the amount of time spent in social media and changing dysfunctional beliefs about social media use are promising. However, the mechanisms of change of these interventions...

This article is about a few mistakes I've made. About a few destructive habits that can make life quite messy and unhappy. And it's about what you can do instead to replace those mistakes and habits with something better. This article is all about uncovering simplicity if you find yourself having overcomplicated your life. 1. Stop overthinking things. Few habits and mistakes are as common as getting stuck in overthinking. I used to do it all the time. And it led to a lot of analysis paralysis, to little action being taken on what I deep down wanted and to so much time and energy wasted. What to do instead: Set short deadl...

By Emily Reynolds We tend to think of sleep as a positive thing. Not enough of it, and we suffer: our moods drop, and we find it harder to both concentrate on what’s in front of us and remember what’s happened. Being well-rested, on the other hand, is associated with greater ability to communicate, to achievement at home and at work, and to superior recollection of previously learned facts or events. Based on what we already know about the benefits of sleep on memory it may seem obvious that going to bed would also help eyewitnesses identify those they had seen perpetrate crimes. But in a new study, publis...
