Sleepy staffers struggle with handling frustration

Losing even a couple of hours of sleep makes you quicker to anger and less able to handle frustrating situations. New research conducted at Iowa State University and published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology, found that participants who restricted their sleep by two to four hours each night for two nights had a lower tolerance for even small annoyances.  The researchers said that while the results may seem intuitive, the study is one of the first to provide evidence that sleep loss causes…

This article includes academic work published between 2013 and 2017 in PubMed, Embase, Scopus, Web of Science, ACM Digital Library, and Google Scholar. A final list of 463 articles was analyzed for this review. Topic modeling methods were used to identify six key themes (topics) of WAT research, namely: 1) Technology Focus, 2) Patient Treatment and Medical Settings, 3) Behavior Change, 4) Acceptance and Adoption (Abandonment), 5) Self-monitoring Data Centered, and 6) Privacy. We take an interdisciplinary approach to wearable activity trackers to propose several new research questions. The most important research gap we ide...

Abstract Neuropsychiatric adverse events (NPAEs) observed with the integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI) dolutegravir (DTG) are usually mild to moderate. The most prevalent symptoms are insomnia and sleep disorders, but the spectrum also includes dizziness, anxiety, depression, headache, paraesthesia, muscle-skeletal pain, poor concentration, and slow thinking. In recent cohort studies involving>6400 patients in different countries, discontinuation rates due to NPAEs were observed in around 3.5% (range, 1.4-7.2%) of subjects treated with DTG. These rates have been higher than those seen in randomized clin...

ConclusionsWe report an uncommon case presenting initially with both ptosis and macroglossia, for which a final diagnosis of systemic AL amyloidosis was made. Detailed history and laboratory investigation must be implemented on suspicion of amyloidosis, because early recognition of amyloid-associated diseases and appropriate treatment can improve clinical outcomes.

Authors: McCarthy MS, Elshaw EB, Szekely BM, Raju D Abstract PURPOSE: To explore response to vitamin D supplementation in active duty (AD) warfighters and translate findings into evidence-based health policy. BACKGROUND: Soldiers are at risk for musculoskeletal injuries and metabolic dysfunction that impact physical performance and military readiness; the link with low vitamin D status is unclear. METHODS: This prospective trial enrolled 152 soldiers; baseline 25 hydroxyvitamin (OH) D level determined assignment to a no-treatment control (CG) or treatment group (TG) receiving a vitamin D3 supplement for 90 ...
