 Full Suite of Innovations from Carestream Dental Opens New Treatment Options for GPs, Takes Teams from Case Start to Finish Faster LAS VEGAS —After a long stretch without trade shows, doctors and team members are excited to explore all the latest technology at ADA SmileCon 2021. In Carestream Dental ’s booth, C1201, they’ll find the integrated solutions that will help them offer new treatment options; open new lines of revenue and engage with their patients better. The highly anticipated CS 3800 wireless intraoral scanner will be available for dental teams to experience. When microns matter, the scanner ’s enlarged field of view and improved depth of field enhance soft tissue scanning, even with edentulous patients; making it easier to capture interproximal areas and subgingival margins; and improve image quality when scanning emergence profiles, deep margins and post spaces. The scanner is all about freedom, including the freedom to offer new treatment options, from restorations to implant-borne restorations, sleep devices to orthodontics. For example, if doctors are looking to add clear aligners to their workflow, they can design and print in-house with a new version of CS Model+ v5.2 that now gives them more control. While much of the design process is still automated for users ’ convenience, the latest updates give them more freedom to adapt treatment based on individual teeth, with the software automa...

Everest South Base Camp lies at an altitude of 17,598 feet (5,364 m), but it is no refuge from the global pandemic. The Nepali Sherpas who, in normal times, share the camaraderie of climbers on the world’s highest mountain, now enforce strict social-distancing rules, remaining within their separate camps—indeed, mostly inside their own tents. “We have made a rule not to walk from one camp to another as some climbers have tested positive,” says Phunuru, a Sherpa guide. “If we see somebody new walking around our camp, we immediately start an inquiry.” Officially, there is no coronavirus he...

Scand J Public Health. 2021 Apr 19:14034948211007679. doi: 10.1177/14034948211007679. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe COVID-19 pandemic has had negative effects on health-care workers. The rapid growth of the disease has led to overwhelmed health-care systems, overcrowded hospitals, an insufficient number of health-care professionals and shortages of medical equipment. The potential exposure of front-line health-care workers during the COVID-19 outbreak has led to self-isolation and the appearance of adverse feelings such as stress, anxiety and fear. All these factors, combined with an increased workload and extra and ch...

This report points to the importance of oc cupation as a risk factor but also to the availability and use of appropriate personal protection to mitigate the risk of becoming infected. In addition, well-established socio-economic factors of health inequalities intermingled with occupations at risk, demonstrated by the fact that most taxi driv ers belonged to the same ethnic group and that taxi drivers had higher mortality rates when residing in London (5). These findings are mirrored in a recent preprint publication from the US state of California, reporting that relative excess mortality was particularly high among food/ag...
