This week: Save for an Emergency. The MAReport: the Summer/Fall 2018 issue of the MAReport newsletter is now available! This quarter, Education &Healthy Literacy Coordinator Michelle Burda is challenging YOU to raise health literacy awareness in your library, organization or community! Check out her article on Health Literacy Month for tools and resources you can use to promote health literacy during the month of October, and all year long. National Network of Libraries of Medicine News Funding Available: NNLM MAR has funding available for two grants of $19,000. Libraries, community-based organizations, schools, health care providers, and other organizations that provide health programming or services within PA, NY, NJ or DE are eligible to apply. Applications are due next week on October 5, 2018, and award funds must be spent by April 30, 2019. As part of a partnership with the All of Us Research Program, NNLM MAR is also pleased to offer up to 20 Professional Development Awards for library staff to attend ALA Midwinter. Awardees can apply for up to $2,000 for registration and travel costs. Learn more about the requirements and apply by October 12.

However, few studies have investigated the acute effects of ketamine on the BOLD pharmacological magnetic resonance imaging (phMRI) response and EEG spectra. In a randomised, double-blind, active placebo-co...

This study aims, first, to validate a retrospectively-gated implementation of the DENSE method for assessing brain tissue pulsations as a physiological marker, and second, to use the acquired measurements to explore intracranial volume dynamics. We acquired repeated measurements of cerebral volumetric strain in 8 healthy subjects, and internally validated these measurements by comparing them to spinal CSF stroke volumes obtained in the same scan session.Peak volumetric strain was found to be highly repeatable between scan sessions. First/second measured peak volumetric strains were: (6.4 ± 1.7)x10−4/(6.7...

ConclusionsWe established a novel formula to mathematically calculate actual 3D angles between inflow cannula and device body of HeartMate II. The formula would help investigators to validate their findings of the relationship between 2D projected angle (from CXR) and device thrombosis.

Mather, Wael El-Mallah, Mohiuddin Cheema, Raymond G. McKayBackgroundPrevious reports described successful use of transcarotid and transsubclavian approaches for the performance of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in patients with severe aortic stenosis who cannot be treated with transfemoral access. The purpose of the present study was to compare these two alternative approaches with respect to safety, efficacy, and procedural efficiency.MethodsA retrospe...

Kern, Mark E. Roeser, Benjamin Kozower, Nicholas R. TemanBackgroundCurrent reporting on cardiac surgical outcomes focuses on a patient’s status at 30 days and lacks long-term meaningful data. The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of complications after cardiac operation on patient-reported outcomes (PROs) at 1 year after surgery.MethodsAll patients undergoing cardiac operation at an academic institution (2014...

ConclusionFindings support the cross-cultural relevance of SDT while at the same time highlighting important cultural variations such as greater importance of competence support in the West, suggesting the need to be cognizant of both cross-cultural universality and variability in motivational theorizing.

CONCLUSIONS: The 2014 federal rescheduling of hydrocodone was associated with only minor changes in overall and potentially high-risk opioid-prescribing rates. Neither state variation in long-term prescribing nor beneficiary characteristics explained the changes in persistently high opioid-prescribing rates among adults with disabilities after the 2014 regulation. Future studies should examine patient and provider characteristics underlying the persistent high-risk prescribing patterns in this population. PMID: 31835012 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Commonly used imputation procedures produced estimates of the number of opioid-involved overdose deaths that are similar to the true number of opioid-involved overdose deaths obtained from toxicology data. Although future studies should examine whether these results extend beyond the geographic area covered in our data set, our findings support the continued use of these imputation procedures to quantify the extent of the opioid epidemic.

Canadian Journal of Zoology, e-First Articles. Senescence is the age-specific decline in fitness of adult organisms principally associated with a decline in survival rate (actuarial senescence) and fecundity (reproductive senescence). Although common in natural populations of many taxa, there are few examples in fishes. A recent study found age-specific increases in the relative frequency of macroscopically non-reproductive Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus Linnaeus, 1758), consistent with reproductive senescence in a number of Canadian populations. However, a non-adaptive explanation for these patterns, unrelated to senes...
