NY Motorist Rescued after 10 Hours in Car Buried by Snow Plow
By JIM MUSTIAN Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — A man who drove off the road in this week’s snowstorm spent 10 hours trapped in his car after a passing plow buried it, finally managing to get a 911 call through and being rescued in the nick of time by a New York state trooper. Kevin Kresen, 58, of Candor, drove off the road in the town of Owego and became “plowed in by a truck,” state police said. “If he was in there for another hour his body temperature would have gone lower, and I’m convinced he wouldn’t have made it,” State Police Sgt.

Scientists solve 100-year-old cerebral malaria mystery using neuroimaging techniques
(London School of Hygiene& Tropical Medicine) Scientists have shown for the first time that cerebral malaria causes death in adults by triggering oxygen-deprivation in the brain, in new research published in Clinical Infectious Diseases.Already available treatments, such as hypothermia, may slow brain oxygen-deprivation in cerebral malaria patients. The researchers say these neuronal survival-enhancing approaches could soon be trialled in adults with cerebral malaria, alongside existing anti-malarial treatments, to hopefully improve survival.

30 Endangered Sea Turtles From Cape Cod Waters Reach New Orleans For Further Treatment
BOSTON (CBS) — Thirty endangered sea turtles recused from Cape Cod beaches have reached New Orleans after a hiccup in their travel plans over Thanksgiving week. The Kemp’s ridley turtles are at the Audubon Nature Institute’s Coastal Wildlife Network after stopping in Tennessee. For weeks, the New England Aquarium and the National Marine Life Center cared for turtles, who were suffering from hypothermia and the inability to feed due to cold ocean temperatures, the organizations said. On Wednesday, pilots with Turtles Fly Too were transporting the turtles to New Orleans when they came across strong winds an...

New England Aquarium Rescues Over 60 Stranded Turtles On Cape Cod Beaches
QUINCY (AP) — The onset of cold weather in New England has led to a surge of cold-stunned turtles becoming stranded on Cape Cod beaches, marine scientists said Thursday. The New England Aquarium’s sea turtle hospital in Quincy has taken in more than 40 turtles in the last two days alone, a large number in a short period of time. That brings to 66 the number of turtles that have already been treated at the aquarium. The turtles — Kemp’s ridleys, loggerheads, and leatherbacks — are treated for life-threatening medical conditions that are a result of weeks of hypothermia and the inability to feed...

Normothermia in patients with sepsis who present to emergency departments is associated with low compliance with sepsis bundles and increased in-hospital mortality rate
Objectives: To investigate the impact of normothermia on compliance with sepsis bundles and in-hospital mortality in patients with sepsis who present to emergency departments. Design(s): Retrospective multicenter observational study. Patient(s): Nineteen university-affiliated hospitals of the Korean Sepsis Alliance participated in this study. Data were collected regarding patients who visited emergency departments for sepsis during the 1-month period. The patients were divided into three groups based on their body temperature at the time of triage in the emergency department (i.e., hypothermia [ 38degreeC]). Intervention(s...

Metabolic adaptation to calorie restriction
In this study, we compared the global metabolic response to CR of mice housed at 22°C (the standard housing temperature) or at 30°C and found that thermoneutrality reverted 39 and 78% of total systemic or hypothalamic metabolic variations caused by CR, respectively. Systemic changes included pathways that control fuel use and energy expenditure during CR. Cognitive computing-assisted analysis of these metabolomics results helped to prioritize potential active metabolites that modulated the hypothermic response to CR. Last, we demonstrated with pharmacological approaches that nitric oxide (NO) produced through the c...

Discussion Bradycardia is a heart rate below what the lowest value that is normal for age. Infants and children have higher heart rates that slowly decrease with age to adult levels. It is usually noted as an incidental finding because of increased vagal tone. Reasons for cardiology referral include associated heart murmur, syncope especially if associated with exercise or unusual triggers, other signs such as chest pain or palpitations, family history of sudden cardiac death, congenital heart disease or familial heart disease, bradycardic medication use, or unusual symptoms associated with the concern.

Discussion The purpose of measuring temperature is to monitor the health of the individual and evaluate for a potentially abnormal physiological state such an ambient hyper/hypothermia or infectious disease. Rectal and esophageal temperature are considered the two most reliable measures for the gold standard of core body temperature. Oral, axillary and inguinal temperatures are common alternative measurement sites but do underestimate core body temperature. These sites often use digital/electronic temperature measurements and contact with the patient’s skin which is not helpful for high volume screening locations. An...

Army veteran Eugene Milligan is 75 years old and blind. He uses a wheelchair since losing half his right leg to diabetes and gets dialysis for kidney failure. And he has struggled to get enough to eat. Earlier this year, he ended up in the hospital after burning himself while boiling water for oatmeal. The long stay caused the Memphis vet to fall off a charity’s rolls for home-delivered Meals on Wheels, so he had to rely on others, such as his son, a generous off-duty nurse and a local church to bring him food. “Many times, I’ve felt like I was starving,” he says. “There’s neighbors that...

According to the latest numbers, roughly 9 million Americans — 4% of U.S. adults — use prescription sleep aids, or medications that can help with insomnia and other sleep issues. And now, some of the most popular prescription sleep drugs must carry stronger safety warnings. In April, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) mandated black-box warnings — which the agency uses to “call attention to serious or life-threatening risks” — on three sedative-hypnotic sleep aids: eszopiclone (often sold under the brand name Lunesta), zaleplon (Sonata) and zolpidem (Ambien).
