Evaluation of the effect of hospitalization on mortality in patients with heart failure followed in primary care.

Conclusions: The findings indicate that hospitalizations are associated with a significant increase in mortality in patients recently diagnosed with HF. It is important to reinforce the need for the prevention of acute decompensated HF and for strategies to improve post-discharge outcomes. PMID: 31702737 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionIn this tale of 2 professions, radiology gained official specialty designation in the field of medicine. The medical profession had a monopoly on health care, and thus had few internal and external barriers to overcome. Chiropractic was oppressed by organized medicine, which helped to create the unofficial specialty of chiropractic radiology but which also later helped to limit the specialty. Chiropractic radiology has maintained its independence and autonomy, but also remains on the fringe of mainstream health care.

Publication date: December 2019Source: Journal of Chiropractic Humanities, Volume 26Author(s): Claire D. JohnsonAbstractIn 1910, radiology was an emerging field when x-rays first came into use by chiropractors. Much has changed in the body of knowledge about ionizing radiation and the spine since the early 1900s. There is little in the peer-reviewed literature on the topic of x-ray use in the chiropractic profession. Therefore, the Journal of Chiropractic Humanities has an open call for papers to investigate the topic of x-ray use in chiropractic and reveal what is myth and what is fact. Accepted papers will be published i...
