How You Should Spend That Extra Hour As Daylight Saving Time Ends
(CNN) — It’s Sunday morning, and you open your eyes to discover it’s still incredibly early because — huzzah! — we’ve reached the end of the seasonal practice known as Daylight Saving Time. Do you: A) Immediately roll over and go back to sleep? or B) Tell yourself that you shouldn’t be lazy, and get up to make the most of this “extra” hour? It’s a trick question, because there isn’t a perfectly right answer that would be the same for everyone. But in general, experts say, most should use the fall time change to squeeze in more sleep — and with zero guilt about doing so. “We live in a society where the CDC considers sleep deprivation to be a public health epidemic,” said Dr. Nate Watson, a professor of neurology at the University of Washington School of Medicine and co-director of the school’s sleep center. “Easily a third of individuals are not getting the recommended seven or more hours of sleep on a nightly basis, which is necessary to support optimal health. So taking that into consideration, I would recommend that people use that hour [from the time change] to get additional sleep.” This is particularly true for those who skimp on sleep during the workweek, added Dr. Phyllis Zee, the chief of sleep medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. “For most people,” she said, “it’s a good idea to get an extra hour of sleep b...
I've been interviewed for and hired (onboarding to come) for a low volume rural ED to do a few moonlighting shift in the last few months of residency. I'm excited. I asked my PD what questions to ask the medical director for a low volume ED and the answers were as expected No cath lab, yes STEMI cardiologist on call to guide me with respect to tPA/no tPA and where to ship Tele-neurologist to 'share' my liability and decision making for stroke Radiology reads CT's 24/7, but... Low Volume Rural ED Survival Guide?
CONCLUSIONS: The GSDS-26 is a preliminary validated multidimensional scale for better identifying depression in men and may be suitable for routine use after further validation. PMID: 31952089 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The positive evaluation and the potential for improvements of the PNP program can support its advancement (e. g. enrolment, billing). PMID: 31952088 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Shame needs to be viewed in context of gender roles, status, and their interaction. Future studies should investigate the influence of mental health literacy. PMID: 31952086 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: In the population studied mental illness alone was not a sufficient predictor for suicide. Rather, an interaction between mental illness, psychosocial crisis and other factors may explain and predict suicides. Suicide prevention should better address the needs of relatives and family doctors and offer specific low-threshold services. PMID: 31952085 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Psychotherapeutic work in rural areas should be better incentivized. Interventions to reduce east-west inequalities in the density of service provision seem to be necessary. PMID: 31952084 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Elements of the guideline should be evaluated in relation to the preferred treatment method. Aspects related to the psychotherapeutic work with patients seem to be especially significant. PMID: 31952083 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This study provides strong evidence that following a healthy lifestyle can substantially extend the years a person lives disease-free."

It is interesting, but not compelling if its role...

(BEIJING) — Seventeen more people in central China have been diagnosed with a new form of viral pneumonia that has killed two patients and placed other countries on alert as millions of Chinese travel for Lunar New Year holidays. In total, 62 cases of the novel coronavirus have been identified in the city of Wuhan, where the virus appears to have originated. The Wuhan Municipal Health Commission reported the new cases in a statement Sunday. Nineteen of those individuals have been discharged from the hospital, while two men in their 60s — one with severe preexisting conditions — have died from the illness....
