MIT Researching Alternative That Could Be Used If Hospitals Run Out Of Ventilators
CAMBRIDGE (CBS) – Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are working on an alternative treatment that can be used when a hospital runs out of ventilators. The researchers are testing whether a drug called TPA that is now used to treat blood clots in heart attack and stroke victims could also clear blood clots that form in the lungs of some people in respiratory failure. Doctors are planning to test this approach at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and at a hospital in Colorado.

He’s delayed chemotherapy for patients who—he hopes—can wait, knowing the treatment would wipe out...

Taking A Hot Bath Linked To Lower Risk Of Heart Disease And Stroke, Study Finds
(CNN) — Ending your day with a hot bath might have more benefits than just relaxation. It could also lower your risk of heart disease and stroke, a new study finds. Previous research on bathing has already shown that it’s beneficial for sleep quality and how healthy a person thinks they are. A new study, published Tuesday in the journal Heart, found that a daily hot bath is also associated with a 28% lower risk of heart disease, and a 26% lower risk of stroke — likely because taking a bath is also associated with lowering your blood pressure, the researchers said. They discovered this after tracking the b...
