Ketamine abusers referring to emergency departments in northern Italy: a cross- sectional study.

CONCLUSIONS: The results highlight a particular population of problematic ketamine users identified using the hospital's ICT system. In particular, poly-drug users who consume ketamine in combination with heroin or cocaine presenting to the ED represent a specific target for targeted prevention projects on non-lethal overdoses and suicide attempts.

This study examined for the first time the effect on malolactic fermentation of an autochthonous Oenococcus oeni PG-16, which was isolated following alcohol fermentation of red-fleshed apple cider. The chemical composition and volatile characteristics of red-fleshed apple ciders produced via simultaneous and sequential inoculation of yeast with either PG-16 or a commercial O. oeni 1 strain were examined. The fermentations were monitored by measuring cell viability and organic acid metabolism. Irrespective of the inoculation mode, malic acid and citric acid were rapidly degraded in the presence of PG-16 during alcoholic fer...

Conclusions: The study results emphasize the relevance of attachment orientation to caregiving relations in health-related contexts and call for awareness of the effect that level of depression combined with attachment orientation can have during hospitalization.Clinical implications: Assessing attachment orientation and depression in hospitalized elders might be useful for identifying older adults at risk for insufficient informal support during hospitalization.

Two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography demonstrated presence of a mass in the area of the right atrium. The mass appeared adherent and possibly infiltrative to the external wall of the right atrium. Three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography allowed better ...

Authors: Kikutani K, Itai J, Ota K, Chosa K, Yamane Y, Shime N Abstract Bronchial artery aneurysms are a rare but potentially life-threatening complications because of the massive hemothorax or hemoptysis that occurs with ruptures. A 79-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital because of the sudden onset of back pain, syncope, and subsequent hypotension. Computed tomography showed a left bronchial artery aneurysm with bilateral hemothorax and hemomediastinum. Transcatheter bronchial artery embolization failed because of the anatomical location, and she went into cardiopulmonary arrest. Cardiopulmonary resusci...

Authors: Zakir HM, Masuda Y, Kitagawa J Abstract Transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) is a polymodal receptor channel, which plays an important role in pain transduction. It is important to understand the functional expression of this channel under neuropathic pain (NP) conditions. A novel method was used to investigate the dynamics of functional expression of this channel on regenerated neurons under NP conditions following trigeminal nerve injury using a combination of a permanently charged sodium channel blocker (QX-314) and a TRPV1 agonist (capsaicin; QX-CAP). The combination was originally introduc...

This study conducted experiments to assess (1) whether neural activity, indicated by Fos expression in an NRM that has experienced MM injury, is affected by the stress of repeated forced swim tests (FST); and (2) whether the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluoxetine administered daily after an FST could affect the number of Fos-positive neurons in the NRM. Results revealed that the stress from repeated FSTs significantly increased the number of Fos-positive neurons in an NRM that had been affected by MM injury. Fluoxetine inhibited increases in the number of Fos-positive neurons in the NRM that occurred as a result...

RibeiroAbstractThe Taylor dispersion technique has been used for measuring the tracer diffusion coefficients, D0Tracer, for poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) in aqueous systems containing two specific electrolytes (i.e., NaCl and Na2SO4) at three concentrations (0.020, 0.050 and 0.10 mol dm−3), and at 25 °C. The selection of these salts has been based on the Hofmeister series of cations and anions, which order the ions with ...
