Abstract: Preeclampsia is a complication of pregnancy that affects approximately 4% of pregnancies. Preeclampsia is defined as new-onset hypertension after 20 weeks gestation often accompanied by new-onset proteinuria. Women who experience preeclampsia during pregnancy are at an increased risk for hypertension and stroke later in life. Healthcare providers should screen women appropriately to minimize risk.

Guadagnin, Francesco Saglietti, Giuseppe Servillo, Giovanni Volpicelli, Paolo Navalesi, Tiziana BoveAbstractPurposeThe effects on the respiratory or hemodynamic function of drainage of pleural effusion on critically ill patients are not completely understood. First outcome was to evaluate the PiO2/FiO2 (P/F) ratio before and after pleural drainage. Secondary outcomes: evaluation of A-a gradient, End-Expiratory lung volume (EELV), heart rate (HR), mean arterial pre...

Every now and then we come across a technology that just begs the question: How on Earth did they think of that? Case in point, a toilet seat designed to detect heart failure by measuring a patient's biometrics during "natural" processes.  A team of researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) are responsible for the idea, which is intended to lower hospital readmission rates by alerting doctors of a patient's deteriorating cardiovascular condition before the patients even realize they have symptoms. The idea is for hospitals to buy the seats and issue them to heart failure patie...

This recommendation has come under scrutiny due to possible slow uptake of oral antiplatelet agents.ObjectiveWe performed a meta-analysis of all available studies in AMI patients treated with prasugrel or ticagrelor (P2Y12 inhibitors), that reported use of morphine prior to loading the antiplatelet agents to critically assess the safety of co-administration of morphine and the newer P2Y12 in...
