A 3,000-Year-Old Mummy Speaks. Really.
The priest once known as Nesyamun has been a man of few words for the past 3,000 years—which is how things go when you’ve been dead since about 1000 BCE. But according to a study just published in Scientific Reports, he recently spoke in a lab in the United Kingdom, and the single syllable the mummified Nesyamun uttered could open the door to an entire chorus of voices from the ancient Egyptian past. One of the things that makes mummification special among interment rites is that unlike simple burial—in which bodies decay relatively quickly, leaving only bones behind—it preserves soft tissue. That m...

FDA Is Still Trying to Tackle the Dirty Duodenoscope Problem
In April FDA reported that postmarket surveillance studies indicated higher-than-expected levels of contamination on duodenoscopes after reprocessing. Now, FDA is recommending that healthcare facilities either use fully disposable duodenoscopes or ones with disposable endcaps when they become available. Disposable designs simplify or eliminate the need for reprocessing, which may reduce between-patient duodenoscope contamination as compared to reusable, or fixed endcaps, the agency said. Duodenoscopes are the flexible, lighted tubes that are threaded through the mouth, throat, and stomach into the t...

Discussion Respiratory problems in infants can caused by many things including any type of obstruction from the nose to lung. Neonates and infants are particularly susceptible to changes in the size of the airway because of the physics of airflow resistance. Important reminders about infant airways: Resistance = 1/radius4 (Poiseuille’s equation) therefore even a 1 mm decrease in the airway circumferences increases the airflow resistance x16. Increased airflow causes less pressure along the walls, which can lead to collapse of the walls (Bernoulli’s and Venturi effects). Neonates have smaller lungs relative to ...
