Researchers Identify 3 Factors Associated With Social Media Effect On Girls

BOSTON (CBS) – Many parents worry that social media could have a detrimental effect on their teen’s well-being, but a new study in The Lancet Child &Adolescent Health helps identify which kids are most at risk. Researchers in England interviewed more than 12,000 teens between the ages of 13 and 16 and found that girls who use social media multiple times a day were more likely than boys to report psychological distress like decreased happiness and increased anxiety. But they found that three factors seemed to account for most of that distress in girls: cyberbullying, poor sleep and inadequate physical activity. The researchers say perhaps instead of trying to curb social media use in teens, efforts should be focused on reducing the effects of cyberbullying, including making our kids more resilient to it, ensuring our kids get good sleep and making sure they get plenty of physical activity.

Conclusion Results provide insights into modifiable risk factors for morning fatigue. These risk factors can be used to develop more targeted interventions. Implications for Practice Patients in the high and very high morning fatigue classes experienced high symptom and comorbidity burdens and significant decrements in functional status. Using this information, clinicians can identify patients who are at an increased risk for higher levels of morning fatigue and prescribe interventions to improve this devastating symptom.

The objective of this study was to assess the effect of CPAP treatment in elderly patients with moderate OSA in terms of clinical, quality-of-life and neurocognitive measures. This was an open-label, randomised, multicentre clinical trial in 145 elderly patients (≥70 years old) with confirmed moderate OSA (apnoea–hypopnoea index 15–29.9 events·h–1) randomised to receive CPAP (n=73) or no CPAP (n=72) for 3 months.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) are a family of pain-related disorders associated with impaired function in the jaw, temporomandibular joint and muscles of mastication. Our objectives were to evaluate the association between chronic TMD and gastresophageal reflux disease (GERD) and to determine whether mental disorders or undermined sleep mediates this association. METHODS: We conducted a case-control study involving 1522 consecutive adult patients with chronic TMD and 1522 matched controls from 2 hospitals in China. All participants were aged between 18 and 70 years and were recruited...
