Managing Fatigue in EMS
Fatigue is a fact of life in modern society.  Fatigue in EMS is constant and, sadly, all too accepted by both employers and employees.  I taught a class recently and easily half of the soon-to-be instructors (who had to try and retain a lot of new information) survived the class on an endless stream of coffee and energy drinks. I still wonder how much of the key information was retained. This is a constant theme in all my classes. I still remember being on the other side of the table: in uniform struggling to stay awake. Leading EMS organizations are finally addressing the problems of fatigue and shift work, so c...

Why Life on Mars May Be Impossible
Mars is a lousy place to try to live—what with the paralyzing cold, the blistering radiation and the thin carbon dioxide atmosphere. That hasn’t stopped us from looking for life on Mars or from hoping to to live there ourselves once day. The Red Planet was once a watery world like ours, after all, with oceans and seas and rushing river valleys. Microbial life that got started in those days could, scientists theorize, still be holding on in pockets today. That theory may well be a good one, but the odds just got a lot slimmer. According to a new study in Scientific Reports, the Martian soil itself may be toxic t...

Can magnesium help depression – or is it just a placebo?
Conclusion Depression is a serious illness that can cause a great deal of distress to those who have it, as well as to their friends and family. Current treatments – both medication and talking therapies – work well for some people but less well for others. Antidepressants can have unwanted side effects. So, a new treatment for depression with few side effects would be very welcome. Despite the researchers' interpretations of their results, however, it's hard to recommend a treatment when we don't know whether a sugar pill would work just as well. The lack of a placebo group in the study means we cannot be sur...
