ConclusionAccording to the results, whey supplementation significantly reduced the SBP, DBP, HDL, waist circumference, TG and FBS in intervention groups in comparing to control groups.

Conclusions. These results hold promise in improving the understanding of brain deterioration in stroke patients and the re-arrangement of brain networks. Furthermore, shows the use of functionality based brain modeling.
In a large-scale'virtual study'that had more than 400,000 participants, the Apple Watch flagged atrial fibrillation, a major risk factor for stroke, with high accuracy.Medscape Medical News
Conclusions There is weak evidence for a positive effect of short-term whole-body vibration training on spasticity of lower limbs, mobility, balance, and postural control. Besides, positive effect of the long-term effect of whole-body vibration training on mobility in patients with neurological disorders. The optimal whole-body vibration training parameters in treating patients with neurological disorders remain unclear.
Research training equips residents with the skills to consume and produce research evidence and deliver evidence-based care. Within Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, studies have historically demonstrated low rates of resident research productivity. Although Canadian residency requirements mandate research participation, little is known about Canadian residents’ research productivity. Using standard systematic review search strategies, we evaluated the rate and type of peer-reviewed publications produced by resident physicians during postgraduate medical training for a historic cohort of Physical Medicine and Reh...
It is known that exposure to airborne particles, such as smoke from cooking fires, correlates with increased mortality due to cardiovascular disease. Setting aside commentary on wealth and its correlation with exposure to particulate air pollution, the obvious candidate mechanism is an increase in chronic inflammation due to the effects of inhaled particles on lung tissue. Raised inflammation then leads to an accelerated progression of atherosclerosis, the fatty deposits that narrow and weaken blood vessels, ultimately leading to heart failure, stroke, and heart attack. Researchers here provide epidemiological data to supp...
Study Design. Retrospective cohort study. Objective. Compare a novel two-step algorithm for indicating a computed tomography angiography (CTA) in the setting of a cervical spine fracture with established gold standard criteria. Summary of Background Data. As CTA permits the rapid detection of blunt cerebrovascular injuries (BCVI), screening criteria for its use have broadened. However, more recent work warns of the potential for the overdiagnosis of BCVI, which must be considered with the adoption of broad criteria. Methods. A novel two-step metric for indicating CTA screening was compared with the American Coll...
