Migrants and disability following injury: findings from a prospective study in New Zealand.

CONCLUSIONS: Disability was persistent for migrants and non-migrants to 24 months post-injury. The disability risk at three months was higher for migrants. Certain predictors associated with disability were identified. Implications for public health: Despite having accessed healthcare services for their injury, migrants (compared with non-migrants) had higher risks of disability at least in the first three months post-injury. Interventions should be focused during this critical period on identified key predictors to promote faster recovery and reduce disability. PMID: 31287940 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurpose of reviewTo elucidate the intertwining of vascular events, vascular disease and vascular risk factors and COVID-19.Recent findingsStrokes are a leading cause of disability and death worldwide. Vascular risk factors are important drivers of strokes. There are unmodifiable vascular risk factors such as age and ethnicity and modifiable vascular risk factors. According to the INTERSTROKE study, the 10 most frequent modifiable vascular risk factors are arterial hypertension, physical inactivity, overweight, dyslipidaemia, smoking, unhealthy diet, cardiac pathologies, diabetes mellitus, stress/depression and over...

Conclusion: The association of migraine and disordered eating attitudes was shown to be related to depression, anxiety, quality of life and personality traits and may also indicate a more clinically severe migraine. To the best of our knowledge, there is no literature study that deals with all these relevant data together. However, neuropsychiatry-based biological studies are required to better understand this multifaceted association.RESUMO Introdu ção: Poucos estudos exploraram a coexistência de migrânea e hábitos alimentares inadequados. Além disso, os mecanismos fisiopatoló...

Mortensen E-cigarette use is increasing among young adult never smokers of conventional cigarettes, but the awareness of the factors associated with e-cigarette use in this population is limited. The goal of this work was to use machine learning (ML) algorithms to determine the factors associated with current e-cigarette use among US young adult never cigarette smokers. Young adult (18–34 years) never cigarette smokers from the 2016 and 2017 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) who reported current or never e-cigarette use were used for the analysis (n = 79,539). Variables associated with curren...

Stroke is the second most common cause of death worldwide and the fifth in the US, also representing the major cause of disability in older adults. We aim to determine the risk of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) in individuals with obesity, with past history of transient ischemic attack (TIA), compared with patients with a history of bariatric surgery (BaS).

This study aimed to examine the differences in patient-reported outcomes over the course of 12 and 24 months among BMI classifications of patients who underwent lumbar surgery. METHODS: A search was performed using the Quality Outcomes Database (QOD) Spine Registry from 2012 to 2018 to identify patients who underwent lumbar surgery and had either a 12- or 24-month follow-up. Patients were categorized based on their BMI as normal weight (≤ 25 kg/m2), overweight (25-30 kg/m2), obese (30-40 kg/m2), and morbidly obese (> 40 kg/m2). Outcomes included the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) and the visual analog scale (VA...

Childhood obesity remains a serious public health problem affecting all ages of the pediatric life span. Despite increases in interventions and research, the prevalence of childhood obesity continues to rise. The National Center for Health Statistics 2015-2016 data report an overall childhood obesity rate of 18.5%, with variation between age groups: 13.9% among 2 –5 years old, 18.4% among 6–11 years old, and 20.6% among 12–19 years old (Hales, Carroll, Fryar,&Ogden, 2017). For children with developmental and intellectual disabilities (e.g., autism spectrum disorder), estimates of obesity are as h...
