Assessment In Response To Ketamine Patients In A Palliative Care Unit

A study examines that to assess the response to ketamine in patients with difficult pain syndromes in a clinical setting of a supportive/palliative care unit (SPCU), where ketamine has been used for years to treat difficult pain conditions and reverse states of hyperexcitation. Ketamine in subanesthetic doses has been found to have analgesic effects. The analgesic effect of ketamine is likely to occur through its antagonism on N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors.

Most Of Emergency Rooms Are Not Treated For Mass Tragedies

Many ER doctors say their hospitals are not fully prepared for major disasters or mass tragedies. The finding, from a new poll by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), comes as the U.S. Congress considers major disaster preparedness legislation. ACEP questioned 1,328 emergency room doctors between April 25 and May 6 and painted what is saw as a chilling picture of unreadiness.

Prediction Of Disease Outbreaks By Keeping In A Track

Researchers have created a modeling framework that takes a zoonotic perspective on Ebola. The study was published in Scientific Reports. The team's approach works by tracking the migratory patterns of bats, which are believed to be a main carrier of the Ebola virus. Bats, in this instance, are the reservoirs of Ebola. This means that they are carriers and transmitters of the virus, though it does not cause them harm.

Subtle Hearing Loss While Young Changes Brain Fucntion

A new study has found that young people with subtle Hearing loss, the kind they aren't even aware of are putting demands on their brains that typically wouldn't be seen until later in life. Cranking up your headphones or scrambling for a front-row spot at rock shows could be damaging more than your hearing. The study was published in the journal eNeuro.

Circadian Misalignment Occurs During Shift Work And Causes Health Problems

According to a new study, researchers examine that Circadian misalignment commonly occurs during shift work and is associated with health problems. Staying awake all night and sleeping all day for just a few days can disrupt levels and time of day patterns of more than 100 proteins in the blood, including those that influence blood sugar, energy metabolism, and immune function. The study was published in the journal PNAS.

New Hope For Patients With Depression And Anxiety

Researchers have proven that special treatment could help many sufferers, especially women for autoimmune thyroiditis(AIT), there is a strong link between depression and anxiety disorders and autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT), a chronic thyroid condition affecting approximately 10% of the population. Depression and anxiety are among the most common psychiatric disorders across the globe. In 2016 more than 260,000 patients were admitted to hospital for treatment in Germany alone.

Scanning Near-Field Optical Microscope Improves Imaging Structures

Researchers have found a way to reveal the 3D shape of the polariton interaction around a nanostructure. Their technique improves upon the common spectroscopic imaging technique known as scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscopy (s-SNOM). New method improves upon common spectroscopic imaging technique: scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscopy (s-SNOM), makes it possible to obtain polaritonic, mechanical and electrical information simultaneously with one measurement. The study was published in Nature Communications.

Potential Treatment For The Brain Damage Caused By Cosmic rays Of Sapce

NASA and private company SpaceX plan to send humans to Mars within the next 15 years but need to figure out how to protect astronauts from the dangerous cosmic radiation of deep space. Now neuroscientists have identified a potential treatment for the brain damage caused by cosmic rays, a drug that prevents memory impairment in mice exposed to simulated space radiation. The study was published in Scientific Reports.

Irregular Fasting May Increase Risk Of Diabetes

According to a study, researchers determined that fasting every other day to lose weight impairs the action of the sugar-regulating hormone, insulin, which may increase diabetes risk. These findings suggest that fasting-based diets may be associated with long-term health risks and careful consideration should be made before starting such weight loss programs.
