Anesthesia Effects On Providers And Implications In Medicare

A study showed anesthesia services in the United States are predominantly provided by two types of providers: certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) and anesthesiologists. CRNAs are advanced practice nurses who have earned a baccalaureate degree, practiced at least one year as an acute care nurse, and have completed a graduate-level nurse anesthetist program. Anesthesiologists are physicians who have completed medical school, a clinical base year residency, and three years of residency in an anesthesia program.

Consequences of NCDs in Nepal

An alarming rise in non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as obesity, hypertension, and diabetes is silently threatening Nepal. According to national data, more than 1 in every 4 persons in Nepal suffer from hypertension, and many don’t even know it. Uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes can cause stroke, blindness, heart disease and kidney failure. The consequences of NCDs are more than just premature death; they are leading causes of disability and compromise development in Nepal.

Unique Role From An Transported Molecule

Researchers reported a basic science finding that might someday lead to better treatments for neurodegenerative diseases like a hereditary form of Lou Gehrig's disease. Their work identifies details in how molecules bind to each other for transport into the nucleus of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Proper binding and transport appear essential for the protein named FUS. The study was published in the journal Cell.
