Risk of burn injury in patients with narcolepsy: a nationwide population-based cohort study - Chang ET, Lin CL, Chen SF, Shen YC.

Narcolepsy is a rare brain disorder characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), cataplexy, hypnagogic hallucinations, and sleep paralysis. Stimulants have been used to relieve the symptoms of EDS. Narcolepsy symptoms may pose a risk to burn injury...

Publication date: March 2020Source: Developmental Review, Volume 55Author(s): Saoirse Mac Cárthaigh, Claire Griffin, John PerryAbstractObtaining sufficient sleep is a protective factor against mental and physical ill-health. However, evidence suggests that, among adolescents, the proliferation of mobile devices has contributed to a decline in sleep quality and duration over the past few decades. There is a paucity of research on the relationship between sleep and problematic smartphone use. Of the studies which have researched this association, all have relied on homogeneous samples within specific cultural contexts...

We present a mathematical model of human sleep/wake regulation with thermoregulatory functions to gain quantitative insight into the effects of ambient temperature on sleep quality. Our model extends previous models by incorporating equations for the metabolic processes that control thermoregulation during sleep. We present numerical simulations that provide a quantitative answer for how humans adjust by changing the normal sleep stage progression when it is challenged with ambient temperatures away from thermoneutral. We explore the dynamics for a single night and several nights. Our results indicate that including the ef...

ConclusionCT was a more effective diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of irreversible gastric necrosis following caustic ingestion than a strategy based on digestive endoscopy and the use of CBSC. CT could eventually replace gastrointestinal endoscopy in the emergency evaluation of gastroesophageal caustic burns.

ConclusionIn Europe in recent years for the availability of the vascular device of small dimensions and materials increasingly compatible, the "PICC-PORT" is positioned in the veins of the arm with ultrasound-guidance without complications such as pneumothorax, arterial puncture, hematoma of the neck, Pinch-off syndrome, such as the clinical case presented with extensive scars on the chest and neck. Thoracic devices (chest port, tunnel venous catheter) are not indicated in thickened and inelastic skins, due to the high risk of dehiscence of the surgical wound.
