Researchers at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine found first-time healthy mothers electively induced labour at 39 weeks are at less risk of cesarean delivery and other serious complications compared to those induced after 41 weeks
According to new studies examined seasonal variations in cardiac-related hospitalizations specifically for aortic dissection and ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarctions (STEMI). The results of both studies revealed winter as the most common time for hospital admissions and used the Nationwide Inpatient Sample database (NIS) for analysis. Results were presented at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) Scientific Sessions in San Diego.
Researchers have developed a light-based measuring technique that could transform our ability to characterise biomolecules. Using a microscope that detects light scattering rather than fluorescence, the researchers have demonstrated that single molecules can be observed, and their mass measured, in solution. The study was published in the journal Science.
According to a new study, researchers estimated that hearing aids may hold the potential to cut older adults' visits to the hospital or emergency room. They cost thousands of dollars, and insurance almost never covers them. That could mean lower costs in the long run, though more research is needed to see if this is true. The study arrives at a time when discussion about adding Medicare coverage for hearing aids is rising. The study was published in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. After examining data from 1,336 adults ages 65 to 85 they had a severe hearing loss.
A study determines that one in every 100 people in the world takes glucocorticoids long term to treat immune-mediated diseases. However, glucocorticoids, such as prednisone, have a side effect, they induce the bone loss called osteoporosis, causing an estimated yearly bone fracture rate of 5 %. An alternative treatment option now appears promising. The study was published in the journal The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.
According to study, researchers examine that for a stroke patients, they give the clot-busting intravenous drug alteplase, but another drug may be more effective. Among more than 200 stroke victims, TNKase (tenecteplase) was about twice as effective as alteplase in restoring blood flow to the brain, and it also resulted in less disability. The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
According to a study, researchers examined that a Black Communities are obligated to learn more about heart valve disease and the lifesaving procedures available to treat it, according to a report from the Association of Black Cardiologists. It is incumbent upon us as healthcare providers do a better job educating our patients about heart valve disease. Heart valve disease affects more than 5 million U.S. adults and kills an estimated 25,700 Americans each year.
According to a new collaborative study led by a University of Miami Miller School of Medicine research team, a "cocktail" of monoclonal antibodies that can prevent Zika virus (ZIKV) infection in primates was not effective for treatment of fetuses
The present study aimed to identify discrepancies and areas of consensus between guidelines to give novel insights into areas where low consensus between the guideline panels exists in Urolithiasis surgical management and therefore where more evidence might increase consensus
Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine are preparing a first-of-its-kind, multidisciplinary investigation to determine if and how cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant, provides therapeutic benefit to children with severe symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
