Effect of Body Mass Index on Hemiparetic Gait
To evaluate the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and spatiotemporal, kinematic, and kinetic gait parameters in chronic hemiparetic stroke survivors.
We have a total of 42 ICU beds in our community hospital. Acuity is high as we have a large catchment area and we serve as a referral site for surrounding hospitals. Trauma center and comprehensive stroke center. Trying to see how we could make things better. Currently we have 2 intensivists and 1 NP/PA on days. Open ICU and we see everyone on the vent and on vasoactive agents plus others if we are asked to help. We do multidis rounds on every patient in the unit, regardless of whether we... How is your ICU staffed?
ConclusionIt is envisaged that the current review will add value to more scientific research on M. flabellifolius and enhance/promote the increased interest in the sustainable commercialization of M. flabellifolius herbal tea as well as lead to the validation of unverified ethnobotanical claims.Graphical abstract
We describe below the design of dal-GenE, a precision medicine, placebo-controlled clinical outcome trial of dalcetrapib in patients with a recent acute myocardial infarction with the unique feature of selecting only those with the AA genotype at rs1967309 in the ADCY9 gene.
(CNN) — Adults in the United States who binge drink are consuming even more alcohol per binging episode, according to a new study published Thursday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Researchers analyzed data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System over a six-year period and discovered that the annual number of binge drinks among adults who reported excessive drinking jumped on average from 472 in 2011 to 529 in 2017. That’s a 12% increase. In 2017, the number of binge drinks per year among adult binge drinkers ranged from 320 per year in Massachusetts to 1,219 in Wyoming. The nu...

Conclusions: In this cohort of patients with granulomatosis with polyangiitis and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, both traditional and disease related risk factors were predictive of cardiovascular events. Further prospective studies should elucidate the impact of these and other modifiable risk factors on cardiovascular risk in ANCA-associated vasculitis.
In this study, we assessed the impact of interacting medication and pharmacogenetic variation to better explain apixaban concentration differences among 358 Caucasian AF patients. Genotyping (ABCG2,ABCB1,CYP3A4*22,CYP3A5*3) was performed by TaqMan assays, and apixaban quantified by mass spectrometry. The typical patient was on average 77.2 years old, 85.5 kg, and had a serum creatinine of 103.1 µmol/L. Concomitant amiodarone, an antiarrhythmic agent and moderate CYP3A/ABCB1 inhibitor, the impaired-function variantABCG2 c.421C > A, and sex predicted higher apixaban concentrations whe...
CONCLUSION: In patients with ULMCA disease, PCI was comparable with CABG for long-term MACCE and death rates. The TVR rate was higher in the PCI group. PMID: 31941834 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
