In this issue of the Journal, a group of distinguished Nordic researchers, led by Anne Helene Garde and including four of our Associated Editors, present a discussion paper that originated from a workshop and provides detailed recommendations on night shift work (1). The recommendations are very clear: to protect workers ’ health, night shift schedules should have: (i) ≤3 consecutive night shifts; (ii) shift intervals of ≥11 hours; and (iii) ≤9 hours shift duration. For pregnant women, night work should be limited to one shift per week. The authors acknowledge that under circumstances allowing better possibi...

This study will be a single-blinded, randomized controlled trial with 2 parallel groups. It will be conducted at North China University of science and technology affiliated hospital. Discussion: There is no consistent conclusion about the pathogenesis of wake up stroke. Wake up stroke is more likely to manifest as small vessel disease. The incidence of wake up stroke patients is relatively high, and the effectiveness and safety of intravenous thrombolysis under the guidance of multimode imaging therapy in wake up stroke need to be further explored by prospective, large-scale studies. Trial registration: ClinicalTrial...

ConclusionIschemic stroke patients with OSA have higher disability, higher need of rehabilitation, and longer hospitalization length. Prescreening tools for recognizing these stroke patients in acute phase could be valuable. That could result in earlier initiation of treatment and might prevent worse recovery from stroke.

The objectives of the present study were to determine the incidence of the composite endpoint postoperative MPCs and to identify predictors for postoperative MPCs in patients without SDB, with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and with central sleep apnea (CSA) undergoing cardiac surgery. STUDY DESIGN: and methods: In this sub-analysis of the ongoing prospective observational study CONSIDER AF, preoperative risk factors for postoperative MPCs were examined in 250 patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Postoperative MPCs, including respiratory failure, acute respiratory distress syndrome, pneumonia, or pulmonary embolism, we...

The objective of this article is to investigate the differences of carotid atherosclerosis patients with or without OSAHS by a cross-sectional research. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients diagnosed with carotid atherosclerosis by ultrasonography were recruited. They were requested to fill the primary screening OSAHS questionnaire. Patients with high tendency of OSAHS underwent polysomnography (PSG) tests into OSAHS group, and patients without OSAHS were into non-OSAHS group. Blood tests and medical history were collected. Carotid atherosclerosis severity was analyzed by carotid artery intima-media thickness (IMT), c...

Wow, that was a couple of very insightful discussions, via social media no less. #1. The first one was about whether heads of state and candidates to high office should pass a cognitive/ mental fitness test. Click HERE to read and discuss some of the sharpest comments, such as… “I wonder what brought this up.” “Definitely. We routinely screen applicants for a wide range of jobs.” “Then the balance of political power would shift towards the designers of those tests.” “That’s what debates are for.” “Yes, but probably nobody would pass it.” “...
