Teen ’s idea leads to surgical innovations at Aurora St. Luke’s

When 16-year-old Kailah Cathey has free time, she often reaches for a book. But what she pulls off her shelf isn ’t your typical young adult or popular fiction. She reads medical books and dreams of becoming a surgeon. Aromatherapy and its calming and healing effects is a particular interest of Cathey’s. She wondered how it might benefit patients undergoing medical procedures. And now, she’s playing a role in answering that question. Dr. Richard Rovin, a neurosurgeon at Advocate Aurora Health,…

Tomisawa Kuromoji (Lindera umbellata) is a tree that grows throughout Japan. The components of kuromoji essential oil have antitumor and aromatherapy effects. However, the composition of the hydrosol, obtained as a by-product of the essential oil process, is unknown. Furthermore, it is unknown whether kuromoji essential oil has a deodorizing effect. Therefore, the purpose of the current study was to compare the chemical composition of kuromoji essential oil and hydrosol, as well as evaluate the deodorizing effect of the former. The chemical composition of samples was evaluated using gas chromatography–mass s...

CONCLUSIONS: Some CAM therapies may help reduce post-CS pain for up to 24 hours. The evidence on adverse events is too uncertain to make any judgements on safety and we have no evidence about the longer-term effects on pain. Since pain control is the most relevant outcome for post-CS women and their clinicians, it is important that future studies of CAM for post-CS pain measure pain as a primary outcome, preferably as the proportion of participants with at least moderate (30%) or substantial (50%) pain relief. Measuring pain as a dichotomous variable would improve the certainty of evidence and it is easy to understand for ...
