Nationwide risk factors for hospital readmission for subsequent injury after motor vehicle crashes.

Nationwide risk factors for hospital readmission for subsequent injury after motor vehicle crashes. Traffic Inj Prev. 2018 Dec 13;:1-6 Authors: Parreco J, Eidelson SA, Revell S, Zakrison TL, Schulman CI, Rattan R Abstract OBJECTIVE: Some drivers involved in motor vehicle crashes across the United States may be identified as at risk of subsequent injury by a similar mechanism. The purpose of this study was to perform a national review of the risk factors for hospitalization for a new injury due to a subsequent motor vehicle crash. It was hypothesized that presenting to a different hospital after subsequent injury would result in worse patient outcomes when compared to presentation at the same hospital. METHODS: The Nationwide Readmissions Database for 2010-2014 was queried for all inpatient hospitalizations with injury related to motor vehicle traffic. The primary patient outcome of interest was subsequent motor vehicle crash-related injury within 1 year. The secondary patient outcomes were different hospital subsequent injury presentation, higher Injury Severity Score (ISS), longer length of stay (LOS), and in-hospital death after subsequent injury. The analysis of secondary patient outcomes was performed only on patients who were reinjured. Univariable analysis was performed for each outcome using all variables during the index admission. Multivariable logistic regression was performed using all significant (P

AbstractBackground/ObjectiveNon ‐alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is more and more common in patients with type 2diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Currently, some researches have found that Sodium glucose co‐ transporter2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, a new hypoglycemic drug, can improve nonalcoholic fatty liver besides hypoglycemic effect . Thus, we undertook a meta‐analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the efficacy of SGLT2 inhibitors on the treatment of NAFLDMethodsPubMed, Embase and the Cochrane Library were searched for RCTs of SGLT2 inhibitors in patients with NAFLD and T2DM up to Oct1, 2019. Differenc...

In this work, a novel facile, environmental friendly method for fabricate high-strength carrageenan fibers is proposed. It involves the crosslinking of a small amount of Ba2+ ions in the carrageenan solution, followed by using recyclable alcohol in coagulation and stretching baths. Carrageenan molecular chains we...
