Women work the most injury-inducing jobs
Here's a headline that might surprise: Working in state-run nursing and residential care facilities was riskier than being a police officer or a firefighter in 2016. Since 2012 nurses and health aides in state-run residential care and nursing settings have accounted for the highest rates of injury and illnesses tracked by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The industry reported 164,300 employee injuries and illnesses in 2016, and racked up an incident rate t hat was roughly 30 percent higher than…
AbstractPurposeWhile the increased rates of high degree perineal tears were previously associated with the use of forceps, in the current era of low volume of forceps practice, factors associated with the occurrence of this potential complication remain understudied. We aim to evaluate factors associated with obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASIS) in obstetric units with a low volume forceps practice.MethodsA retrospective cohort study was conducted at two tertiary medical centers. All singleton pregnancies delivered by forceps extraction between 2011 and 2019 were analyzed. Women who experienced anal sphincter injury wer...

In high-income countries the rate of induction of labor (IOL) exceeds 25 % and it is continuing to rise [1 –3]. IOL typically involves cervical priming in an inpatient setting, before an amniotomy and oxytocin infusion. This can lead to a prolonged hospital stay and an increased burden on both women and the healthcare system . Outpatient cervical priming may be a safe and cost-effective alternative . However, little is known about women’s preference and the impact of outpatient cervical priming on their healthcare experience [6,7].
ConclusionsUse of balloon catheter in women with term PROM appears safe and was not associated with increased maternal or neonatal infectious morbidity.
Credit: Education Cannot Wait By External SourceMar 31 2020 (IPS-Partners) Armed conflicts, forced displacement, climate change induced disasters and protracted crises have disrupted the education of 75 million children and youth globally. And that number is growing in an unprecedented way with the spread of COVID-19. Education has been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic with 1.53 billion learners out of school and 184 country-wide school closures, impacting 87.6% of the world’s total enrolled learners. Drop-out rates across the globe are likely to rise as a result of this massive disruption to education ...
ConclusionsPatients with LAM avulsion present a higher degree of sexual dysfunction than patients without avulsion at 6 months after instrumental vaginal delivery.
CONCLUSIONS: We report a fetus with Kabuki syndrome 2 detected using CMA. It is strongly recommended that CMA be included in prenatal diagnosis in fetuses with growth retardation, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal abnormalities revealed by routine Color Doppler ultrasonography.
