Video game-based and conventional therapies in patients of neurological deficits: an experimental study.

Conclusion: This study opens the way for future researchers, psychologists, physiotherapist and other practitioners to do more extensive work in the domain of virtual reality with different sample, constructs and approaches.Implications for rehabilitationIt has become increasing important to introduce new state-to-art technologies in domain of rehabilitation.People are reluctant to use all the traditional modes of treatment. As these conventional ways of treatment are least motivating and interesting to indulge the patients without force and burden. It is evident in the present study that addition of virtual reality-based exercise increases the self-motivated balance during functional task in contrast to conventional and task-dependent training participants.This study opens the way for future researchers to do more extensive work in this domain.

Authors: Weng G, Tian P, Yan X, Cheng Q Abstract The present study aimed to determine the clinical significance of heart-type fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP) in patients with sepsis-induced cardiac dysfunction. A total of 30 healthy subjects served as the control group and 80 patients with sepsis were recruited for the present single-center prospective observational study for the final analysis. Among these patients, 50 developed cardiac dysfunction, while no cardiac dysfunction was detected in the remaining 30 patients. Echocardiography was performed on days 1, 3, 7 and 10 of hospitalization. Routine blood bio...

Authors: Shklovsky-Kordi A, Gelernter R, Berkovitch M, Dagan Z, Kozer E Abstract BACKGROUND: Acetaminophen is the most common drug involved in pediatric poisonings, both intentionally and accidentally, and is the leading cause of acute liver failure among all age groups. OBJECTIVES: To define the characteristics of patients admitted to a pediatric emergency department (ED) where serum acetaminophen concentrations were measured, and to determine which variables are associated with significant risk of acetaminophen toxicity. METHODS: Acetaminophen serum concentrations were measured, in a retrospective case se...

We present the case of an 87-year-old male with Parkinson's disease, admitted to the Emergency Room due to acute abdomen, without leukocytosis or neutrophilia, with PCR of 0.74 and lactate of 2.5. The emergency abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan showed a pneumoperitoneum and significant intestinal pneumatosis on the small bowel loops in the right abdomen. There was a 3.2 cm slight dilation, without portal venous gas and an adequate opacification of the superior mesenteric artery and its main branches. An emergency laparotomy was performed that showed subserosal cysts in the jejunum and ileum, with no signs of transmur...

ConclusionDiscontinuing ASA after short-term use for the treatment of patients with T2DM following PCI was not associated with any increased cardiovascular outcomes. Also, discontinuing ASA after short-term use and continuing the use of a P2Y12 inhibitor were somewhat safer in these patients with T2DM. Further research should follow.

ConclusionsGLP-1RAs and SGLT2is lead to similar benefits on MACE, CVD, MI, and ACD in adults with type  2 diabetes. The benefit from SGLT2is on HHF is greater than that from GLP-1RAs, while GLP-1RAs vs. placebo significantly reduce stroke whereas SGLT2is do not. The two drug classes reduce cardiovascular events independent of reductions of systolic blood pressure and body weight.

Conclusions: The current evidence demonstrates that mind-body exercise is relatively safe and modestly effective for symptom management in cancer survivors. Furthermore, randomized trials with larger sample sizes and of higher methodological quality are needed to confirm these results. PMID: 32952591 [PubMed]
