Effects of long-term exposure to an extremely low frequency magnetic field (15 µT) on selected blood coagulation variables in OF1 mice. Electromagn Biol Med. 2019 Jul 13;:1-8 Authors: Vallejo D, Hidalgo MA, Hernández JM Abstract The long-term exposure of OF1 mice to an extremely low frequency magnetic field (ELF-MF; 50 Hz, 15 µT [rms]) has been associated with the appearance of leukaemia. Neoplasms are usually accompanied by changes in haemostatic processes but reports on changes in blood coagulation following exposure to an ELF-MF are scarce and rather fragmentary. The aim...

Prophylactic radiotherapy — once offered routinely after invasive procedures for pleural mesothelioma — is an unnecessary treatment for patients, according to the most recent study from the United Kingdom. Results from a large, multicenter clinical trial have shown the treatment — used regularly for almost two decades — does little to prevent chest-wall metastasis that can occur with mesothelioma cancer. “This should be helpful for patients to know if their oncologist is offering something they don’t really need,” clinical oncologist Dr. Neil Bayman, associate medical director at t...

Hello! Coming into CA-2 year now and deciding on fellowship. I am one of those who have always had the heart for critical care since prelim medicine intern year. I plan on wanting to do 100% ICU. ICU type SICU/MICU/CTICU/NICU doesn't matter so much to me so far. Maybe prefer MICU/CTICU. What is the job market and approximate salary for a 100% ICU job nowadays? Whether private/community/academic? Thanks!

I know a large part of it is the learning curve but I don't feel 'doctory' at all. I feel like I'm in med school again learning random anatomy minutiae and hating my life. I was deciding between rads and anesthesia up until August of fourth year and I can't help but feel I might've made a mistake. I'm in a good program so that's not the issue. Please tell me it will get better because I'm feeling borderline depressed and I'm never like this. I just finished a TY and enjoyed myself despite... Just started rads residency and I feel like I made a mistake.
