Effects of virtual reality immersive training with computerized cognitive training on cognitive function and activities of daily living performance in patients with acute stage stroke: A preliminary randomized controlled trial
Conclusion: Virtual reality immersive training might be an affordable approach for cognitive function and activity of daily living performance recovery for patients with acute stroke.
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...

ConclusionIt is envisaged that the current review will add value to more scientific research on M. flabellifolius and enhance/promote the increased interest in the sustainable commercialization of M. flabellifolius herbal tea as well as lead to the validation of unverified ethnobotanical claims.Graphical abstract
We describe below the design of dal-GenE, a precision medicine, placebo-controlled clinical outcome trial of dalcetrapib in patients with a recent acute myocardial infarction with the unique feature of selecting only those with the AA genotype at rs1967309 in the ADCY9 gene.
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...
(CNN) — Adults in the United States who binge drink are consuming even more alcohol per binging episode, according to a new study published Thursday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Researchers analyzed data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System over a six-year period and discovered that the annual number of binge drinks among adults who reported excessive drinking jumped on average from 472 in 2011 to 529 in 2017. That’s a 12% increase. In 2017, the number of binge drinks per year among adult binge drinkers ranged from 320 per year in Massachusetts to 1,219 in Wyoming. The nu...
