Administrative Churn in SNAP and Health Care Utilization Patterns
Conclusions: SNAP administrative churn was very common among our study sample. Given that health care utilization patterns varied for churners compared with nonchurners, it is important that researchers and public health professionals not assume stable SNAP receipt among participants.

Adverse Events Among Hospitalized Critically Ill Patients: A Retrospective Cohort Study
The objective of this study was to estimate the frequency and type of adverse events (AEs) among critically ill patients and identify patient and hospital factors associated with AEs and clinical and health care utilization consequences of AEs. Materials and Methods: This retrospective cohort study includes patients admitted to 30 intensive care units (ICUs) in Alberta, Canada from May 2014 to April 2017. The main outcome was AEs derived from validated ICD-10, Canadian code algorithms for 18 AEs. Estimates of the proportion and rate of AEs are presented. The association between documented AEs and patient (eg, age, sex, ...

Validity of Race and Ethnicity Codes in Medicare Administrative Data Compared With Gold-standard Self-reported Race Collected During Routine Home Health Care Visits
Discussion: The status quo of using “good-enough for government” race/ethnicity variables contained in Medicare administrative data for minority health disparities research can be improved through the use of self-reported race/ethnicity data, available in the Medicare data warehouse. Health services and policy researchers should critically examine the source of race/ethnicity variables used in minority health and health disparities research. Future work to improve the accuracy of Medicare beneficiaries’ race/ethnicity data should incorporate and augment the self-reported race/ethnicity data contained in assessment ...

New Roles for Canonical Transcription Factors in Repeat Expansion Diseases
Publication date: Available online 11 December 2019Source: Trends in GeneticsAuthor(s): Lindsey D. Goodman, Nancy M. BoniniThe presence of microsatellite repeat expansions within genes is associated with>30 neurological diseases. Of interest, (GGGGCC)>30-repeats within C9orf72 are associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia (ALS/FTD). These expansions can be 100s to 1000s of units long. Thus, it is perplexing how RNA-polymerase II (RNAPII) can successfully transcribe them. Recent investigations focusing on GGGGCC-transcription have identified specific, canonical complexes that may promote RNAP...

Hunting for new epilepsy drugs, and capturing lightning from space
About one-third of people with epilepsy are treatment resistant. Up until now, epilepsy treatments have focused on taming seizures rather than the source of the disease and for good reason —so many roads lead to epilepsy: traumatic brain injury, extreme fever and infection, and genetic disorders, to name a few. Staff Writer Jennifer Couzin-Frankel talks with host Sarah Crespi about researchers that are turning back the pages on epilepsy, trying to get to the beginning of the story w here new treatments might work. And Sarah also talks with Torsten Neurbert at the Technical University of Denmark’s National Space Instit...

Mainstreaming Leprosy-affected People a Big Challenge in Bangladesh
Feroza Begum, Leprosy activist. Credit: Rafiqul Islam / IPSBy Rafiqul IslamDHAKA, Bangladesh, Dec 12 2019 (IPS) When Feroza Begum was first diagnosed with leprosy in 2006, it felt as though she had been struck by a thunderbolt due to the deep-seated prejudice in her society that the disease is a curse from Allah (God). “ I was affected with leprosy disease, nobody accepted me (in the past). They had made me isolated. I cannot forget the plight I suffered at that time. Even my family was broken as I was left by my husband,” she told IPS. The 35-year old says she was ostracized and made to feel like a lesser person. Fer...

Nurses ’ Lack Of Sleep Could Affect Patient Safety And Care, Study Says
BOSTON (CBS) — Nurses aren’t getting enough sleep, which may impact patient care and safety, according to a new study by NYU. Nurses usually don’t work a typical nine to five job, often working in 12-hour shifts and all hours of the day and night. And we know that irregular hours take a toll on circadian rhythms. Researchers at the NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing surveyed more than 1,500 nurses, and found that they reported getting just under seven hours of sleep prior to a work day on average, but more than eight hours before a day off. That’s an hour and half less sleep before a work shift, and...

A Simple, Objective, and Mathematical Grading Scale for the Assessment of Facial Nerve Palsy
Conclusion: The proposed simple, objective and mathematical (SOM) method of grading facial nerve palsy is convenient and provides global and regional continuous percentage that can monitor the progress and classify the patients with facial paralysis into six-point grades based on severity. This system was having substantial compatibility with HBGS-2 grading. For further validity, multi-center study with a larger sample of patients would be required.

Do ’ s and Don ’ts for Buying Christmas Toys
It was a total Christmas fail. With great fanfare, my well-intentioned brother-in-law gave my 2.5 year old son a 2-foot tall robot for Christmas. It was jet black. It had red flashing eyes. It shot a ray gun with a rat-a-tat-tat. My brother-in-law was so excited when he pulled it from the box — but my son was terrified. He ran behind me and peered out at the thing, saying “No! No! No!” His favorite uncle was crushed. He thought he’d brought him the perfect toy.

We describe a feature, give a location, and then synthesise a conclusion. For example: There is an irregular mass with microcalcification in the upper outer quadrant of the breast. Findings are consistent with malignancy. You don’t need to understand the words I used here, but the point is that the features (irregular mass, microcalcification) are consistent with the diagnosis (breast cancer, malignancy). A doctor reading this report already sees internal consistency, and that reassures them that the report isn’t wrong. An common example of a wrong report could be: Irregular mass or microcalcification. No ...

Lasmiditan: New first-in-class drug treatment approved for migraine
Migraine is a huge medical problem, accounting for half of the disability produced by all neurologic diseases worldwide. The medication sumatriptan (Imitrex) is well known for the treatment of a migraine attack. Sumatriptan is part of a group of medications known as the triptans. Triptan medications have been in use for over 20 years and are very effective for the acute treatment of headache (relieving migraine headaches that are already in progress). But they also have limitations; triptans can cause temporary narrowing of blood vessels in the heart and elsewhere that can result in side effects, such as chest pain or tigh...

Assessing Late Life Cardiovascular Risk from Mid-Life Cholesterol Levels
Researchers here use data on cholesterol and health assessed in a large patient population over a 40 year period in order to determine how the risk of suffering atherosclerosis by age 75 varies with cholesterol levels assessed in the 30s and 40s. It is no surprise that higher cholesterol levels mean a greater risk of atherosclerosis, the development of fatty lesions that narrow and weaken blood vessels. The condition is one in which the macrophage cells responsible for removing these unwanted lipids from blood vessel walls are made dysfunctional by rising levels of oxidized cholesterol. The more cholesterol in the blood st...
