The opioid epidemic has become so severe it's considered a national public health emergency. Addiction to prescription painkillers, such as oxycodone and morphine, has contributed to a dramatic rise in overdose deaths and health care costs. What many don't realize, it's also associated with an alarming number of children placed into foster care.

Menstrual hygiene management in Nepal

Menstrual hygiene management (MHM) is an essential aspect of hygiene for women and adolescent girls between menarche and menopause. Despite being an important issue concerning women and girls in the menstruating age group MHM is often overlooked in post-disaster responses. Further, there is limited evidence of menstrual hygiene management in humanitarian settings. This study aims to describe the experiences and perceptions of women and adolescent girls on menstrual hygiene management in post-earthquake Nepal.

Early Detection of Subungual Melanoma Based On Case Study

In the case study, researchers must establish screening strategy for SUM in situ. Prevalence of subungual melanoma (SUM) in Asian population is relatively high and early clinical detection improves both quality of life and survival. The aim of our study is to suggest simple clinical strategy for SUM in situ for early clinical detection by analyzing clinical features of 8 cases of SUM in situ.

Neuroprosthetics For Auricular Muscles; Anatomical Study

In this study, researchers studied on neuroscience which can also serve as a bio-controller of human neuroprosthetics. Though, numerous therapeutic and diagnostic wearable devices are designed to monitor and alleviate the symptoms of neurological disorders, brainstem injuries, emotional states, and auditory functions, by making use of the neural networks of the auricular muscles and their locations, which are easily accessible for ergonomic wearable biomedical devices. They can also serve as a bio-controller of human neuroprosthetics.
