CONCLUSIONS: Workers expose themselves daily to physical, chemical, biological, psychosocial, and ergonomic risks. These exposures often lead to symptoms such as stress, headache, eye and mucous membrane disorders, respiratory diseases, back and muscle pain, depression, and symptoms often associated with Sick Building Syndrome.PMID:34719452 | DOI:10.3233/WOR-205179

Mil Med. 2021 Oct 6:usab420. doi: 10.1093/milmed/usab420. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTLyme disease is a vector-borne infection that can affect multiple different organ systems. Lyme carditis represents one of these sequelae and is defined by acute onset of high-grade atrioventricular block in the presence of laboratory-confirmed infection. Current guidelines recommend patients with Lyme carditis be admitted for close cardiac monitoring and intravenous antibiotics therapy. Our case illustrates an active duty male who was initially diagnosed with Lyme disease after initially reporting symptoms including headache, fever, ey...

At my animal hospital in upstate New York, an epicenter of the U.S. tick epidemic, my dog Fawn lets out a whimper as the veterinarian injects her with her annual Lyme disease shot. I roll my eyes. She doesn’t know how good she has it. The injection means that if a tick bites her (and in rural New York, a tick always does), the creepy crawly will feast on dog blood that’s been supercharged with a Lyme bacteria-killing substance, and Lyme disease won’t be transmitted to Fawn. I wish I could be shot up with that superpower. Currently, there is no human vaccine for Lyme disease—even though more than two...

Environ Sci Pollut Res Int. 2021 Apr 2. doi: 10.1007/s11356-021-13655-6. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDormex is widely used as a plant growth regulator in developing countries such as Egypt as well as worldwide. Despite the widespread use of Dormex, little is known about the exact mechanism of action and toxic profile. The current study aims to outline the factors that predict in-hospital outcome and the need for intensive care unit (ICU) admission among the patients who presented with acute hydrogen cyanamide exposure as well as to evaluate the roles of the Multiple Organ Dysfunction Score (MODS) and the Sequential Organ...

We appreciate Dr. Pun's interest in ibuprofen's capacity for acute mountain sickness prevention.1 There has been concern that ibuprofen may prevent headache only through analgesia rather than treating the disease entity itself. However, multiple trials have reported no significant difference in headache incidence or severity compared with acetazolamide.1-3 At the anti-inflammatory 600-mg ibuprofen dose, we theorize that the medication functions similarly to dexamethasone through cyclo-oxygenase inhibition.

By HANS DUVEFELT We live in a time of thirty second sound bytes, 280 character tweets and general information overload. Our society seems to have ADHD. There is fierce competition for people’s attention. As doctors, we have so many messages we want to get across to our patients. How many seconds do we have before we lose their attention in our severely time curtailed and content regulated office visits? I have found that it generally works better to make a stark, radical statement as an attention grabber and then qualifying it than to carefully describe a context from beginning to end. Once a person s...

The way we think about pain could change how much we actually sufferWe ’ve all got a story about pain. Maybe it’s that time you broke your arm skating, or the time you finished the game on a twisted ankle, or the 10 hours of labour without an epidural. Maybe your story of pain is a story of violence, the injury and trauma of an assault. Maybe it’s a story of terr or. Or it’s heartbreak, the seemingly endless depths of grief and despair after a loss. Whatever it is, (almost) all of us have experienced what we call pain and we’re not in a hurry to experience it again.But have you ever tried to d...

We all have become a little lazy and are inactive in terms of activities due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Covid-19 pandemic has disturbed several aspects of our lives. Working from home, online training, and government limitation on gyms has led to a situation where we don’t know where and when to exercise to stay healthy. One more point we like to mention over here is that it is tempting for each one of us to stay away from the healthy routine. But as per medical science and fitness enthusiast, it is always crucial, in normal and abnormal circumstances, to follow a healthy routine for physical and mental well-being....
