Sepsis, septic shock, and fatal exertional heat stroke - Epstein Y, Roberts WO, Golan R, Heled Y, Sorkine P, Halpern P.

Exertional heat stroke (EHS) is a clinical syndrome of hyperthermia, encephalopathy, and multiorgan dysfunction that can be irreversible and fatal. While prompt recognition and immediate, aggressive total body cooling can prevent progression of the clinica...

Publication date: Available online 21 January 2020Source: NeurocomputingAuthor(s): Emmanouil Giannakakis, Cheol E. Han, Bernd Weber, Frances Hutchings, Marcus KaiserAbstractSimulations of neural networks can be used to study the direct effect of internal or external changes on brain dynamics. However, some changes are not immediate but occur on the timescale of weeks, months, or years. Examples include effects of strokes, surgical tissue removal, or traumatic brain injury but also gradual changes during brain development. Simulating network activity over a long time, even for a small number of nodes, is a computational cha...

Conclusions: Mechanical thrombectomy for anterior circulation strokes based on CTP did not result in a significant functional outcome improvement. The duration of the thrombectomy procedure was the sole time-interval related to improved functional outcome. Published on 2020-01-20 12:01:10

ObjectivesCarotid artery geometry influences blood flow disturbances and is thus an important risk factor for carotid atherosclerosis. Extracellular matrix (ECM) and yes-associated protein (YAP) expression may play essential roles in the pathophysiology of carotid artery stenosis, but the effect of blood flow disturbances of carotid bifurcation location on the ECM is unknown. We hypothesized that carotid artery anatomy and geometry are independently associated with the ECM and YAP expression.MethodsIn this cross-sectional study, 193 patients were divided into two groups: an asymptomatic group (n = 111) and a symptomatic gr...

BOSTON (CBS) — Marijuana use is growing in popularity and local doctors are sounding the alarm about the potential harms the drug could have on the heart. They say marijuana carries many of the same cardiovascular risks as smoking tobacco. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital say while more patients are curbing their use of cigarettes, there has been an acceleration in marijuana use that marijuana users are now exceeding cigarette smokers. And the effects of the drug on cardiovascular health are not fully understood. Some studies have linked marijuana use with stroke, arrhythmias, and other heart conditi...

Exertional heat stroke (EHS) is a clinical syndrome of hyperthermia, encephalopathy, and multiorgan dysfunction that can be irreversible and fatal. While prompt recognition and immediate, aggressive total body cooling can prevent progression of the clinical syndrome, even a short delay can exacerbate the effects of hyperthermia-induced changes. EHS is linked to an inflammatory response that is akin to the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). However because EHS is not a common problem in most hospital intensive care units and is not in the usual list of SIRS causes, it may be overlooked easily. Furthermore norma...
