This Compound Can Reverse Aging in Mice. Will It Work in People?
Mice are by no means men — but the results of a new mouse study are still encouraging for man’s search for longer life. In a study published in the journal Cell, researchers report that they found a molecule that essentially reactivates faltering blood flow in aging mice. Compromised blood flow is a major component of aging, since it deprives tissues and organs, including the brain, of the essential nutrients and oxygen they need to function. “Loss of blood flow seems to be one of the early things that leads to diseases of aging,” says David Sinclair, the study’s senior author and co-director ...

Study shows potential of imaging methods for systemic sclerosis-related Raynaud's phenomenon
Current methods of measuring changes in blood flow or skin temperature in the hands of people with systemic sclerosis are subjective and not always sensitive to change. Testing and developing new means of treating systemic sclerosis-related Raynaud's phenomenon in future clinical trials could now be made easier thanks to two imaging methods that have been validated by new research. Arthritis Research UK has funded a study led by the University of Manchester showing how laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI), which measures blood flow, and thermography techniques, which measure skin temperature, could both play an i...

This article describes the RFD's journey toward increased SCA survival-a journey that, in 2016, resulted in a 71% (Utstein) survival rate from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in Rialto. This is due in large part to what the RFD unlearned about cardiac arrest; Rialto's outcome-based data now shows that all of these assumptions are false: CPR should be done on a hard, flat surface; Always defibrillate ventricular fibrillation (v fib); Intubation attempts should be limited to 30 seconds; ALS actions are what saves lives; Prioritize epinephrine to improve cerebral perfusion and survival; Asystolic patients have essentially n...

Capnography is a great way to confirm airway device placement and monitor ventilation, but it can do so much more. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a product of metabolism transported via perfusion and expelled through ventilation. End-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) waveform monitoring allows you to measure all three simultaneously, making it the most important vital sign you use.1 To evaluate the metabolism, ventilation and perfusion of a patient through EtCO2 waveform monitoring you need to read the PQRST: proper, quantity, rate, shape and trend.
