[Report] A nontoxic pain killer designed by modeling of pathological receptor conformations
Indiscriminate activation of opioid receptors provides pain relief but also severe central and intestinal side effects. We hypothesized that exploiting pathological (rather than physiological) conformation dynamics of opioid receptor-ligand interactions might yield ligands without adverse actions. By computer simulations at low pH, a hallmark of injured tissue, we designed an agonist that, because of its low acid dissociation constant, selectively activates peripheral μ-opioid receptors at the source of pain generation. Unlike the conventional opioid fentanyl, this agonist showed pH-sensitive binding, heterotrimeric gua...

Philips Respironics recalls select V60 ventilators over software shut down issues
Royal Philips (NYSE:PHG) Respironics business is recalling a select number of its V60 respiratory ventilators with its version 2.20 software over issues with the software causing the blower motor to stall and the unit to shut down, according to a recall notice released this week. The recall affects all V60 ventilators manufactured between Aug. 17, 2016 and Jan. 4, 2017 with v2.20 software, the company said, with the caveat that the recall may affect units manufactured prior to Aug. 2016 which have had v2.20 software added in the field. Philips cautioned that the v2.20 software “may falsely detect that the blower...

Study: Patient error cuts dose in half for inhalers
Researchers from Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine have identified patient errors that cause inhaler users to get about half as much medicine as they should from each dose. The team said that clinicians have known for years that patients don’t use their inhalers as prescribed, but inhaler-dosing studies tend to focus on the rare cases when patients use the devices correctly.

Scientists Find Out How Much Pee Is Really In The Swimming Pool
A whiz of a study has determined just how much urine may be in the average public pool. And urine for a shock: It’s more than anyone wants. The news leak ― actually, the news about leaks ― comes from a team of researchers in Canada who were looking for a way to detect urine in a swimming pool. Turns out, the solution was pretty sweet: an artificial sweetener called acesulfame potassium (ACE), found in a wide variety of consumer products.

Labetalol in acute cocaine toxicity: is it safe?
3 out of 5 stars Acute Toxicity from Topical Cocaine for Epistaxis: Treatment with Labetalol. Richards JR et al. J Emerg Med 2017 Mar;52:311-313. Abstract There has long been a debate among toxicologists — still unresolved — as to whether it is safe to use a beta-blocker to treat cocaine-related hypertension and tachycardia. The (theoretical) concern is that since cocaine is both an α- and a β-agonist, blocking the β-receptors could lead to unopposed α stimulation with increased severe hypertension. Some authors contend that in this setting, labetalol would be safe since it blocks bot...

An Overview of EMS Pediatric Airway Management
You arrive on scene, walk into the home and find a mother sitting on the couch with a 1-year-old child on her lap. She explains her daughter has been sick for several days, but today it was much harder than usual to wake her up from a nap and, “She just isn’t acting like herself.” The girl appears limp in her mother’s arms and doesn’t look up at you. She appears diaphoretic and her respiratory rate is approximately 8 breaths per minute. You look at your partner, who appears just as worried about the patient as you are, and quickly begin taking action. Your partner hooks up the small patient to...

Safety Risks of Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces and Similar Cultural Practices?
Discussion Amber is fossilized tree resin that is prized for its beautiful colors from deep brown to caramel, yellow, green or even white. It is promoted for its “healing properties” although there is not scientific evidence that supports the many potentiated mechanisms of these properties. One of the most consistent is that amber contains succinic acid which proponents believe is absorbed through the skin and is a pain reliever. Succinic acid was actually first purified from amber in 1546 by a German chemist. Succinic acid in humans is an important part of the Krebs cycle and acts as an important metabolite in...

Know When Airway Discomfort is Indicative of Something Serious
Discussion Coughing is a normal response that protects the airway. Typically, when an irritant enters the airway, the body responds by drawing in a quick breath and then closes the glottis as the air is forced out. This increases the pressure in the airways, which helps move the irritant out of the air passages. As the air is forced out past the closed glottis, the recognizable coughing sound is made. A cough that persists for several days or increases in its intensity and frequency can be a sign of a serious condition. (Source: JEMS Patient Care)

Prehospital Ventilation is in the Bag with Proper Technique and Appreciation
As a 16-year-old observer on the ambulance with my father, I wasn't allowed to ventilate unconscious patients, but I watched and learned a great deal by just observing how they used their "football," an early Puritan Manual Resuscitator (PMR) bag-valve mask (BVM). They nicknamed it the "football" not just because it was brown and resembled a football, but because it was easier to tell the firefighters or police officers assisting them to "go get the football" than "go get the BVM." I was curious why my dad placed rolled towels or a blanket under the patient's shoulder blades and neck...

Did the nerve agent VX kill Kim Jong Nam?
Last night Malaysian authorities announced that they identified the nerve agent VX taken off the face of Kim Jong Nam, who was murdered on February 13 at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. As the History Channel video above indicates, nerve agents are potent acetylcholinesterase inhibitors that utilize the same mechanism as organophosphate insecticides such as parathion. Conceptually, the effect of VX exposure is simple: wherever in the body acetylcholine acts as a neurotransmitter, nerve agents cause unregulated, chaotic activity. There are generally 3 such sites: muscarinic sites: connections between ner...
