High-intensity respiratory muscle training improves strength and dyspnea after stroke: a double-blind randomized trial

To examine whether high-intensity home-based respiratory muscle training, ie, with higher loads, delivered more frequently and for longer duration, than previously applied, would increase the strength and endurance of the respiratory muscles, reduce dyspnea and respiratory complications, and improve walking capacity after stroke.

AbstractThe purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between morphology, hemodynamics, and aneurysm wall enhancement (AWE) on vessel wall MRI and their potential role in rupture of intracranial aneurysms. Fifty-seven patients (22 males and 35 females; mean age of 58.4) harboring 65 unruptured intracranial aneurysms were retrospectively recruited. Vessel wall MRI images were reviewed and differentiated as no (NAWE), partial (PAWE), and circumferential (CAWE) wall enhancement. Computational geometry and computational fluid dynamics were used to calculate morphological and hemodynamic parameters. The PHASES sc...

I've been interviewed for and hired (onboarding to come) for a low volume rural ED to do a few moonlighting shift in the last few months of residency. I'm excited. I asked my PD what questions to ask the medical director for a low volume ED and the answers were as expected No cath lab, yes STEMI cardiologist on call to guide me with respect to tPA/no tPA and where to ship Tele-neurologist to 'share' my liability and decision making for stroke Radiology reads CT's 24/7, but...

This study provides strong evidence that following a healthy lifestyle can substantially extend the years a person lives disease-free." Commentary on Recent Evidence for Cognitive Decline to Precede Amyloid Aggregation in Alzheimer's Disease https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/01/commentary-on-recent-evidence-for-cognitive-decline-to-precede-amyloid-aggregation-in-alzheimers-disease/ I can't say that I think the data presented in the research noted here merits quite the degree of the attention that it has been given in the popular science press. It is interesting, but not compelling if its role...

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...

ConclusionThe prevalence of the PEX increased significantly with age. The risk of the PEX was significantly higher among persons with IHD and even higher among persons with IHD and stroke. In the future, a greater understanding of the cardiovascular, metabolic, and environmental components associated with the PEX may lead to more specific lifestyle-related preventive strategies to decrease the disease burden.

eppe Annino Nowadays, in modern elite sport, the identification of the best training strategies which are useful in obtaining improvements during competitions requires an accurate measure of the physiologic and biomechanical parameters that affect performance. The goal of this pilot study was to investigate the capabilities of the e-Kayak system, a multichannel digital acquisition system specifically tailored for flatwater sprint kayaking application. e-Kayak allows the synchronous measure of all the parameters involved in kayak propulsion, both dynamic (including forces acting on the paddle and footrest) and kinematic...
