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...

What Causes Bradycardia?
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. Severe bradycardia ...

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...

Why America Is Failing To Feed Its Aging
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...

Newborn resuscitation is delivered and despite best efforts the situation is becoming increasingly futile. Five minutes have passed with no detectable cardiac activity; the midwife and additional paramedics are five minutes away, the nearest hospital fifteen.

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).

Neuroprotective Effects of Targeted Temperature Management
Hypothermia has a number of potential neuroprotective effects; however, they can be broken down into two main properties: metabolic and neuronal protection. When mammals hibernate, they experience acidosis both from lactate and carbon dioxide, resulting in hypoxia and hypoglycemia. These conditions are not unlike those that occur post-cardiac arrest: Hypothermia decreases metabolic rate by about 6% per 1 degree C reduction in brain temperature. If blood flow and demand are coupled, it’s possible to see a 50% decline in cerebral metabolic after cooling the brain to 32 degrees C. The protective effects occur via reduct...
