Make the Diagnosis: Because One Sting is Never Enough
(MedPage Today) -- A 34-year-old woman went to urgent care while on a camping trip. She was setting up a tent when she was stung by some type of insect on her finger. Before she could untangle herself from the cloth, she had been stung several more times on her hand and arm, still never seeing the culprit. A short time later she began vomiting and noticed her stings were erythematous. Can you diagnose the patient?

Accelerated Summer Weight Gain in a Low-Income, Ethnically Diverse Sample of Elementary School Children in Massachusetts.
CONCLUSIONS: Children in this high-risk sample gained weight at a faster rate during the summer than during the school year, with no discernable demographic differences. However, this phenomenon was not observed in the subgroup exposed to a school year walk/run program. More research is needed to clarify the determinants of summer weight gain and understand how school year programming and its effects can be transferred to the summer months.

Activated carbon from sugarcane bagasse as a potential positive electrode catalyst for vanadium redox flow battery
Publication date: Available online 19 March 2019Source: Materials LettersAuthor(s): Vivekananda Mahanta, M. Raja, Kothandaraman R.AbstractThermally activated graphite felt (T-GF) electrode coated with carbon derived from the sugar cane bagasse (AC-SCB) was investigated for catalyzing the VO2+/VO2+ reaction in vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB). Micrographs from the scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy clearly show the highly porous structure of the carbon. The electrochemical surface area of AC-SCB based electrode is nearly 80 times higher than that of the thermally activated graphite felt (T-G...

Fundus Autofluorescence in Lamellar Macular Holes and Pseudoholes: A Review.
Authors: Bottoni F Abstract Macular pseudoholes (MPHs) and lamellar macular holes (LMHs) have been recently defined according to spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) criteria. A major feature for differentiating an MPH from an LMH remains the loss of foveal tissue. The anatomy of the foveola is peculiar with the macular pigment (MP) embedded in a very thin layer of tissue underlying the internal limiting membrane and mainly constituted of a specialized group of Müller cells and Henle's fibers. Despite the near microscopic resolution (≈5-7 μm) and the capability to visualize the outer retina i...

You Asked: Should I Try ‘Mindful Eating?’
Grab a raisin—just one raisin—and put it on a plate. Now, sit down and examine the raisin. Smell it. Roll it between your fingers. When you feel you’ve fully appreciated its raisin-ness, pop it into your mouth, and consider its taste and texture as you slowly chew and swallow it. You’ve just dabbled in the trendy practice of mindful eating: a kind of meditation in motion that’s increasingly being scientifically studied for its potential health benefits. Like other mindfulness methods, it emphasizes a judgment-free awareness of your thoughts, emotions and sensory experiences, and it helps you p...

Supreme Court Rules to Protect Navy Veterans in Asbestos Case
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that manufacturers are liable for asbestos-containing materials they did not make, distribute or install, but were needed for their equipment to function properly. The maritime-law ruling involved Navy veterans who were not warned about the danger of asbestos insulation added by a third party to pumps, turbines and blowers aboard three different ships. The ruling will allow cases filed originally by Navy veterans Kenneth McAfee and John DeVries to move forward against five manufacturers. Both veterans died from cancer during the course of litigation. The deaths have been attributed to a...

Temporal Characteristics of Attentional Disengagement from Emotional Facial Cues in Depression
DiscussionThese results suggest that normal controls complete their attentional disengagement from emotional facial expression between 350 ms to 1000 ms after cue offset, while depressed patients complete their attentional disengagement later than that of normal controls but earlier than 1500 ms from the perspective of CNV onset, though the two groups have no significant difference in response time in the conditions of CTI = 1000 ms and CTI = 1500 ms respectively.

Just 10 Minutes of Exercise a Week May Be Enough to Extend Your Life, Study Says
Exercising for just 10 minutes a week is linked to a longer life, according to a new study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Several recent studies have found that even low-intensity exercise, done for a short amount of time, can have a meaningful impact on health. Still, the idea that exercising for 10 minutes a week — less time than it takes to watch a TV show, do a load of laundry or make a pot of pasta — may be enough to increase your lifespan is novel. It’s also somewhat controversial, since the federal physical activity guidelines recommend getting at least 75 minutes of vigorous ...

Evaluating and Improving an Outpatient Clinic Scheduling Template Using Secondary Electronic Health Record Data.
Authors: Hribar MR, Read-Brown S, Reznick L, Chiang MF Abstract Improving the efficiency of outpatient clinics is challenging in the face of increased patient loads, decreased reimbursements and potential negative productivity impacts of using electronic health records (EHR). We modeled outpatient ophthalmology clinic workflow using discrete event simulation for testing new scheduling templates that decrease patient wait time and improve clinic efficiency. Despite challenges in implementing the new scheduling templates in one outpatient clinic, the new templates improved patient wait time and clinic session length ...
