Alkali Burn Over a LASIK Flap
Conclusions: A chemical burn over a LASIK flap poses a challenge for managing corticosteroids, which are required to prevent diffuse lamellar keratitis but can also contribute to keratolysis beyond the first week after an alkali injury. Oral corticosteroid therapy may be beneficial in this situation, with a low threshold to lift the LASIK flap and debride the interface if inflammation occurs. (Source: Cornea)

Sensors, Vol. 21, Pages 3982: Multitemporal Mapping of Post-Fire Land Cover Using Multiplatform PRISMA Hyperspectral and Sentinel-UAV Multispectral Data: Insights from Case Studies in Portugal and Italy
Moretti Wildfires have affected global forests and the Mediterranean area with increasing recurrency and intensity in the last years, with climate change resulting in reduced precipitations and higher temperatures. To assess the impact of wildfires on the environment, burned area mapping has become progressively more relevant. Initially carried out via field sketches, the advent of satellite remote sensing opened new possibilities, reducing the cost uncertainty and safety of the previous techniques. In the present study an experimental methodology was adopted to test the potential of advanced remote sensing techniques ...

System Analysis of Wildfire ‐Water Supply Risk in Colorado, USA with Monte Carlo Wildfire and Rainfall Simulation
AbstractWater supply impairment from increased contaminant mobilization and transport after wildfire is a major concern for communities that rely on surface water from fire-prone watersheds. In this article we present a Monte Carlo simulation method to quantify the likelihood of wildfire impairing water supplies by combining stochastic representations of annual wildfire and rainfall activity. Water quality impairment was evaluated in terms of turbidity limits for treatment by modeling wildfire burn severity, postfire erosion, sediment transport, and suspended sediment dilution in receiving waterbodies. Water supply disrupt...

Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair and Mitral Valve Surgery Following Acute Myocardial Infarction (Insights From a Nationwide Cohort Study)
Transcatheter mitral valve (MV) repair with MitraClip (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) is an established treatment in patients with severe mitral regurgitation (MR) at inoperable or high surgical risk. Acute ischemic MR can occur due to leaflet tethering or papillary muscle dysfunction secondary to acute myocardial infarction (AMI), leading to cardiogenic shock or congestive heart failure.1-3 While MV surgery has been the mainstay for acute ischemic MR refractory to medical treatment,1 recent reports have shown the feasibility of MitraClip in selected patients with acute/subacute MR following AMI.

Impact of closure of the in-house psychiatric care unit on prehospital and emergency ward length of stay and disposition locations in patients who attempted suicide: A retrospective before-and-after cohort study at a community hospital in Japan
Suicide is an increasingly serious public health care concern worldwide. The impact of decreased in-house psychiatric resources on emergency care for suicidal patients has not been thoroughly examined. We evaluated the effects of closing an in-hospital psychiatric ward on the prehospital and emergency ward length of stay (LOS) and disposition location in patients who attempted suicide. This was a retrospective before-and-after study at a community emergency department (ED) in Japan. On March 31, 2014, the hospital closed its 50 psychiatric ward beds and outpatient consultation days were decreased from 5 to 2 days per ...
