COVID-19 Can Increase Risk of Psychiatric Disorders for Up to Two Years
The increased risk of depression and anxiety that patients experience after developing COVID-19 typically subsides within two months, according to astudy published yesterday inThe Lancet Psychiatry. However, patients may have an elevated risk for developing other psychiatric and neurological conditions, such as psychosis, brain fog, and seizures, for up to two years after their infections.“The results have important implications for patients and health services as it suggests new cases of neurological conditions linked to COVID-19 infection are likely to occur for a considerable time after the pandemic has subsided,” s...

Prevalence of atrial fibrillation in a regional Victoria setting, findings from the crossroads studies (2001-2003 and  2016-2018)
CONCLUSION: The prevalence of AF among community-based participants in regional Victoria was similar to predominantly metropolitan-based studies, and was unchanged over time despite increased rates of risk factors. Electrocardiogram rhythm strip investigation was successfully utilised, and particularly benefited from physician overview.PMID:35938603 | DOI:10.1111/ajr.12914

Emerging Trends and Hotspots in Tai Chi Fall Prevention: Analysis and Visualization
This study has identified the core countries are the United States, China, Australia, and England, which are also the origins of the core institutions. Besides this, we also have found two large research groups led by Li and Sherrington. Moreover, the result has revealed that J Aging Phys Act and J Am Geriatr Soc are the primary journals. Geriatrics and gerontology, sport sciences, rehabilitation, and gerontology are the leading categories. Furthermore, one of the more important findings to come out in this study are that "elderly", "Parkinson's disease", "vestibular rehabilitation", "frail patient", and "community fall pr...

Impact of multimorbidity and complex multimorbidity on mortality among older Australians aged 45 years and over: a large population-based record linkage study
Conclusion MM and CMM were common in older Australian adults; and MM was a better predictor of all-cause mortality risk than CMM. Higher mortality risk in those aged 45–59 years indicates tailored, person-centred integrated care interventions and better access to holistic healthcare are needed for this age group.

Real-world effectiveness of lipid-lowering medications on outcomes after stroke: potential implications of the new-user design
Introduction: Observational studies are increasingly being used to provide evidence on the real-world effectiveness of medications for preventing vascular diseases, such as stroke. We investigated whether the real-world effectiveness of treatment with lipid-lowering medications after ischemic stroke is affected by prevalent user bias. Methods: An observational cohort study of 90-day survivors of ischemic stroke, using person-level data from the Australian Stroke Clinical Registry (2012-2016; 45 hospitals) linked to administrative (pharmaceutical, hospital, death) records. Use of, and adherence to (proportion of days covered

Development of a machine learning-based real-time location system to streamline acute endovascular intervention in acute stroke: a proof-of-concept study
Conclusions ML-based RTLS technology using WiFi fingerprinting has the potential to streamline delivery of acute stroke endovascular intervention by efficiently tracking patient and staff movement during stroke calls.

Differences in the pre-hospital management of women and men with stroke by emergency medical services in New South Wales
CONCLUSION: Our large population-based study identified sex differences in pre-hospital management by emergency medical services of women and men admitted to hospital with stroke. Paramedics should receive training that improves the recognition of stroke symptoms in women.PMID:35831059 | DOI:10.5694/mja2.51652
