In elderly patients, this trial aimed to assess the impact of the addition of remifentanil during RSI on the occurrence of: tachycardia (primary outcome), hypertension (due to intubation) nor hypotension (rem...

Publication date: Available online 8 October 2019Source: NeuroImageAuthor(s): In-Seon Lee, Elizabeth A. Necka, Lauren Y. AtlasAbstractPain is a subjective, multidimensional experience that is distinct from nociception. A large body of work has focused on whether pain processing is supported by specific, dedicated brain circuits. Despite advances in human neuroscience and neuroimaging analysis, dissociating acute pain from other sensations has been challenging since both pain and non-pain stimuli evoke salience and arousal responses throughout the body and in overlapping brain circuits. In this review, we discuss these chal...

This study aimed to investigate the one-month outcome of patients with unspecified abdominal pain. Methods: This cohort study was conducted on subjects who were evaluated in ED with unspecified abdominal pain and were referred to the gastroenterology clinic and followed for one month. Finally, they were divided into two groups of cases with clear cause of abdominal pain and unclear cause of abdominal pain and patients' characteristics were compared between the groups. Results: 150 cases with the mean age of 40.68 ± 18.34 years were studied (53.3% female). After one month, 67 (44.7%) patients still complain...

Publication date: Available online 12 October 2019Source: Life SciencesAuthor(s): Suzanne A. Nasser, Elham A. AfifyAbstractSex-related differences in pain and opioids has been the focus of many researches. It is demonstrated that women experience greater clinical pain, lower pain threshold and tolerance, more sensitivity and distress to experimentally induced pain compared to men. Sex differences in response to opioid treatment revealed inconsistent results. However, the etiology of these disparities is not fully elucidated. It is, therefore, conceivable now that this literature merits to be revisited comprehensively. Poss...

Conclusion: Caffeine consumers receiving regadenoson stress MPI was very common, and use of regadenoson for MPI in caffeine consumers is safe and associated with lower incidence of certain symptoms compared to non-caffeine consumers. Specifically, caffeine intake was associated with less aminophylline use and chest pain. PMID: 31604901 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
