A study declines that taking care of illness during a terminal period, due to infection or trauma. When they are older caused by chronic medical conditions such as heart, kidney or lung disease, diabetes or dementia. The good news is that we are living longer. The bad news is that many more of us will live long enough to die from complicated health conditions which often need care over many months or even years.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. It is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, and one person dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every hour. Dermatologists encourage everyone to be a 'Skin Cancer Hero' by learning this life-saving behaviour in conjunction with Skin Cancer Awareness Month and Melanoma Monday.
Researchers have begun to unravel how serotonin acts, based on data collected in a first-of-its-kind experiment that utilized electrochemical probes implanted into the brain of awake human beings. The neurotransmitter serotonin is associated with mood and helps shape the decisions they make. The study is published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology.
According to a study, researchers examine that Antidepressants, drugs for Parkinson's disease, and urologic medications that have definite anticholinergic activity increase the risk of developing dementia up to 20 years after exposure. The study was published online in the BMJ.
Researchers have observed a promising drug strategy that blocks tau transmission. Alzheimer's disease destroys brain cells in part by promoting the formation of insoluble clumps that contain a protein called tau. Not only are these "tau aggregates" toxic for the cells that harbor them, but they also invade and destroy neighboring brain cells, or neurons, which speeds the cognitive decline associated with the Alzheimer's. The study was published online in the journal Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications.
The AVIATOR 2 is a multicenter prospective observational study of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in 11 international sites. The use of a novel smartphone-based survey was used to capture physician and patient perspectives regarding antithrombotic therapies (ATT) after PCI. Results of the AVIATOR 2 international registry are being presented as late-breaking clinical science at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) 2018 Scientific Sessions.
Researchers have developed a novel method for optical microscopy. Using biological motors and single quantum dots, they acquire ultra-high-resolution images. The resolution of conventional optical microscopy is limited by the fundamental physical principle of diffraction to about one half of the wavelength of the light: If the distance between two objects is smaller than this so-called "diffraction limit," they can no longer be visually separated their image appears "blurred ."
To acquire optical images at the scale of few nanometers, this is clearly not sufficient. The study was published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. In a new study, physicists from the Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) and the Technische Universität Dresden now show that it is possible to measure these near-fields with significantly less effort. They used a biomolecular transport system to slide many extremely small optical nano-probes over a surface.
Researchers have found that developing neocortex neurons in mammals undergo a morphological transition from a multipolar shape to a bipolar shape due at least partially to signaling in neuronal migration during brain development. They used to study the process by which the neocortex develops in mammals and what they found. The study was published in the journal Science.
According to a study, researchers examine that Perioperative major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCEs) are more common among patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Patients undergoing noncardiac surgery frequently have diabetes mellitus (DM) and an elevated risk of cardiovascular disease. It is unknown whether temporal declines in the frequency of perioperative major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCEs) apply to patients with DM. The study was published in Diabetes Care.
A study shows lower mortality rates when culprit-only intervention is used for patients with multivessel disease (MVD) and acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with cardiogenic shock (CS). The authors compared culprit vessel intervention (CVI) to multivessel intervention (MVI) and presented the results today as late-breaking clinical science at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) 2018 Scientific Sessions.
According to a study, researchers estimate that black women having breast cancer placed a significantly greater financial strain on black women than white women. They surveyed women who were diagnosed with breast cancer in North Carolina between 2008 and 2013. The study was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology,
According to a new research, Patients with chronic pain completing a comprehensive, multidisciplinary pain rehabilitation program use significantly fewer healthcare resources except in the area of behavioral health.
