Extraction with an electric motor-driven handpiece may still cause subcutaneous emphysema - A case report
This article reported a case of SE around the paraorbital and submandibular regions through extractions of teeth 28 and 38. This 20-year-old man came to the emergency room at night with the major complaint of pain and discomfort during swallowing. Sudden swelling at his left face during extractions of teeth 28 and 38 three hours ago was mentioned. The original surgeon who performed the odontectomy was aware of the SE after removing the surgical drape and specific post-operation instructions were given as follows: immediate hospital care may be needed if the patient encountered difficulties in swallowing or any worsen compl...

" Platelets as a prognostic marker for sepsis: A cohort study from the MIMIC-III database. "
During sepsis, platelets dysfunction contributes to organ dysfunction. Studies on platelets dysfunction in the long-term prognosis of sepsis are lacking. The aim of this study was to assess the role of platelets in the long-term prognosis of sepsis patients.A total of 4576 sepsis patients were extracted from MIMIC III Database. Survival was analyzed by the Kaplan-Meier method. Univariate and multivariate cox analyses were performed to identify prognostic factors. Significant prognostic factors were combined to build a nomogram to predict 1 year overall survival (OS). The discriminative ability and predictive accuracy of th...

Resonant collisional shielding of reactive molecules using electric fields
Full control of molecular interactions, including reactive losses, would open new frontiers in quantum science. We demonstrate extreme tunability of ultracold chemical reaction rates by inducing resonant dipolar interactions by means of an external electric field. We prepared fermionic potassium-rubidium molecules in their first excited rotational state and observed a modulation of the chemical reaction rate by three orders of magnitude as we tuned the electric field strength by a few percent across resonance. In a quasi–two-dimensional geometry, we accurately determined the contributions from the three dominant angu...

Massachusetts Man Dies From Eating Too Much Black Licorice
(AP) – A Massachusetts construction worker’s love of black licorice wound up costing him his life. Eating a bag and a half every day for a few weeks threw his nutrients out of whack and caused the 54-year-old man’s heart to stop, doctors reported Wednesday. “Even a small amount of licorice you eat can increase your blood pressure a little bit,” said Dr. Neel Butala, a cardiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital who described the case in the New England Journal of Medicine. The problem is glycyrrhizic acid, found in black licorice and in many other foods and dietary supplements containing li...

Discussion Pediatric cancers in the US number about 12,000 per year. After injury, it is the second leading cause of death in children and adolescents. Cancer presentations vary widely, but often begin with non-specific symptoms that continue or progress depending on the location and tumor type. Patients can present with oncological emergencies especially if there are mechanical obstruction such as superior vena cava syndrome or cerebral herniation. More commonly are infections due to immunosuppression. Cancer treatment also causes its own myriad of problems that clinicians need to be aware of to diagnosis and treat, but a...

Electrogenetic control was achieved by coupling ectopic expression of the L-type voltage-gated channel CaV1.2 and the inwardly rectifying potassium channel Kir2.1 to the desired output through endogenous calcium signaling. Focusing on type 1 diabetes, we engineered electrosensitive human β cells (Electroβ cells). Wireless electrical stimu...

What Causes Tachycardia?
Discussion Tachycardia is a rapid heart rate that is above normal for age and level of exertion. Tachycardia is common, particularly sinus tachycardia due to normally encountered circumstances such as pain, fever or exercise. It is usually a normal physiologic process but sustained tachycardia often indicates a potentially abnormal underlying cause. Sinus tachycardia has a rapid heart rate with normal P waves and P-R intervals and variations from moment to moment and respiration. Generally it is not over 200 beats/minute. Vagal stimulation can slow the heart rate; this is a gradual slowing, not an abrupt slowing seen in ...

CO2 electrolysis to multicarbon products at activities greater than 1 A cm-2
Electrolysis offers an attractive route to upgrade greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) to valuable fuels and feedstocks; however, productivity is often limited by gas diffusion through a liquid electrolyte to the surface of the catalyst. Here, we present a catalyst:ionomer bulk heterojunction (CIBH) architecture that decouples gas, ion, and electron transport. The CIBH comprises a metal and a superfine ionomer layer with hydrophobic and hydrophilic functionalities that extend gas and ion transport from tens of nanometers to the micrometer scale.
