Patients Are Unaware that the Anesthesiologist Who Put Them Under for Surgery

In this study, researchers examined that most of patients are totally unaware that the anesthesiologist who put them under for surgery might not be the same one who brings them out even though that 'handoff' between the two doctors has been linked to a series of negative patient outcomes, including an increased likelihood of death. The study got published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

A connection between shift work and type 2 diabetes

In this study, researchers observed at the connection between shift work and type 2 diabetes. Investigators at Brigham and Women's Hospital leveraged data on hundreds of thousands of people in the UK Biobank to better understand how shift work especially frequent night work contributes to the likelihood of type 2 diabetes. The study published in Diabetes Care.

Daily Cycle of Gene Expression is Controlled by Protein

According to new study, researchers assessed that the human body functions on a 24-hour, or circadian, schedule. The up-and-down daily cycles of a long-studied clock protein called Rev-erb coordinates the ebb and flow of gene expression by tightening and loosening loops in chromosomes. The study has published in Science.

Ligamentous and Structural Support of The Nasal Tip; Anatomical Study

According to this study, researchers examined that the support of the nasal tip in which they found four areas of anatomic support. These findings led to the “tripod concept” of tip support. Recently, surgeons have begun repairing and/or preserving the nasal ligaments as a method to control tip projection and rotation. The present study was done to investigate the ligamentous and structural support of the nasal tip.
