Editorial June 2013

As an editor of Journal of Research Nursing (JRN), I try to make every issue “balanced.” I ask myself, “Is there something for everyone who reads JRN?” I consider the clinical nurse, nurse researcher, nurse manager, and nurse in an educator role. I also think about others who may see and pick up JRN to read or who are doing research and see a citation for an article that appeared in JRN. Because articles cover topics involving patients during the whole life span (from prenatal to forensic imaging) and all imaging modalities and types of settings, the task of creating a balanced issue is not always easy. I also think about the authors of the articles. I want to see a good representation of radiology nurse authors but welcome articles by other nurses, radiologists, technologists, and others who provide different information and insights. In this particular issue, physicians have given the readers some very informative articles on treatment for acute ischemic stroke, breast tomosynthesis, Pradaxa®, and treatment of portal hypertension. Nurse authors have written about interventions for the pediatric patient in the magnetic resonance imaging setting and a new way to manage medications when there is a need to transport medications within the department. On the human side of nursing and medicine, this issue also features a book review about a poignant story on pulmonary embolism after childbirth. There is a very interesting Just Pediatrics column for all...

In conclusion, older adults exhibited decreased markers of UPR activation and reduced coordination with autophagy and SC-associated gene transcripts following a single bout of unaccustomed resistance exercise. In contrast, young adults demonstrated strong coordination between UPR genes and key regulatory gene transcripts associated with autophagy and SC differentiation in skeletal muscle post-exercise. Taken together, the present findings suggest a potential age-related impairment in the post-exercise transcriptional response that supports activation of the UPR and coordination with other exercise responsive pathways (i.e....

This study sought to investigate what could be learned from how these men have fared. The men were born in 1925-1928 and similar health-related data from questionnaires, physical examination, and blood samples are available for all surveys. Survival curves over various variable strata were applied to evaluate the impact of individual risk factors and combinations of risk factors on all-cause deaths. At the end of 2018, 118 (16.0%) of the men had reached 90 years of age. Smoking in 1974 was the strongest single risk factor associated with survival, with observed percentages of men reaching 90 years being 26.3, 25.7, ...

Shanshan Zhang1, Dongli Yuan2 and Ge Tan1* 1Department of Neurology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China 2The Institute of Medical Information, Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China Primary systemic vasculitis can affect every structure in both the central and peripheral nervous system, causing varied neurological manifestations of neurological dysfunction. Early recognition of the underlying causes of the neurological symptoms can facilitate timely treatment and improve the prognosis. This review highlights the clinical manifestations of primary systemic vasc...

Conclusions: Embolism associated with asymptomatic carotid stenosis shows circadian variation with highest rates 4–6 h before midday. This corresponds with peak circadian incidence of stroke and other vascular complications. These and ASED Study results show that monitoring frequency, duration, and time of day are important in ES detection. Introduction Transcranial Doppler (TCD) detected microembolism in the ipsilateral middle cerebral artery (MCA) may help stratify the risk of stroke and other arterial disease complications in persons with advanced (≥60%) asymptomatic carotid stenosis. If so, this techniqu...

This study demonstrated that the incidence of ischemic heart disease and death were three times higher among men with low birth weight compared to men with high birth weight (5). Epidemiological investigations of adults born at the time of the Dutch famine between 1944 and 1945 revealed an association between maternal starvation and a low infant birth weight with a high incidence of hypertension and coronary heart disease in these adults (23). Furthermore, Painter et al. reported the incidence of early onset coronary heart disease among persons conceived during the Dutch famine (24). In that regard, Barker's findin...

CONCLUSION: CP-CML patients treated with different TKIs (ponatinib, bosutinib, imatinib, dasatinib, and nilotinib) did not have different incidence of cardiovascular events (MACE, AOEs, VTEs) in this small cohort of real-world patients with ≥6-month of follow-up. The results were consistent among patients with prior use of one and two TKI types.DisclosuresLevy: Takeda (Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Inc.): Consultancy. Xie: STATinMED Research: Employment.

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study is to assess the feasibility of aspiration mechanical thrombectomy in patients with massive and submassive pulmonary embolism (PE) and contraindications to thrombolysis.Materials and MethodsEighteen patients presenting massive (8/18) or submassive (10/18) PE were prospectively enrolled between October 2016 and November 2017. All the patients enrolled had contraindications to thrombolysis (haemorrhagic stroken = 1, ischaemic stroke in the preceding 6 monthsn = 7, central nervous system damage or neoplasmsn = 1, recent major trauma/surgery/he...

Conclusion It’s important for prehospital providers to be able to differentiate metabolic disturbances in the setting of respiratory distress and not be fooled into thinking tachypnea always has a respiratory cause. The physical exam and adjuncts such as end-tidal capnography can assist in the prehospital diagnosis. A COPD exacerbation generally presents as diminished lung sounds, wheezing on exhalation, and a prolonged expiratory phase. Here, a patient will attempt to compensate for the inflammation and mucus accumulation associated with the destruction and narrowing of peripheral airways and a subsequent lack of av...
