Management of Type 1 Diabetes, a New Approach

For over a million American individuals with type 1 diabetes, daily insulin injections are literally a matter of life and death. And while there is no cure, a Cornell University-led research team has developed a device that could revolutionize the management of the disease.

General Anaesthesia a safer option for a parturient with intraneural perineurioma

According to a study, perineurioma can be divided into 2 forms: intraneural and extraneural (soft tissue) perineurioma. The tumor cells in perineurioma are characterized by their specific immunohistochemical and ultrastructural features. According to the location, to date, approximately 120 cases with intraneural perineurioma have been published. However, the anesthetic management for a parturient with intraneural perineurioma has not been reported. As the spinal roots and nerves of extremities are involved, neuraxial anesthesia should be theoretically avoided. Therefore, general anesthesia may be a safer option.

Post-hospital recovery care for sepsis survivors, calls for improvement

Researchers found that despite improvement in the rates of people dying of sepsis in the hospital, the condition is still a leading cause of hospital readmissions and costs, as well as long-term disabilities and impairments. Thus, the University of Pittsburgh and University of Michigan medical scientists were prompted to develop thorough recommendations for post-hospital recovery care and future clinical trials.
