Researchers explore the evolution of regional anesthesia and the impact of technology on its development. Since the first general anesthesia (GA), anesthesia has seen a rapid evolution. In tandem with advances in pharmacology, anesthesia techniques were developed to facilitate surgical procedures and to increase patient safety.
Besides GA, regional anesthesia (RA) was introduced in the late 19th century when K. Koller used cocaine as a local anesthetic and W. Halsted performed the first peripheral nerve block (PNB) by infiltrating a local anesthetic (LA) solution around the nerve, making a transmission for sensation and pain impossible.
Nifedipine, hydralazine, and labetalol have similar efficacy and negligible differences in their safety profile and are likely comparable for treating severe hypertension in pregnancy, according to a recent network meta-analysis
Higher daily doses of rifampin, a cornerstone of tuberculosis treatment, killed more TB bacteria in sputum cultures, and the higher doses did so without increasing the adverse effects of treatment, according to a randomized controlled trial published online in the American Thoracic Society's American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
Adolescent students in a rural school in India who consumed an iron-biofortified version of the grain pearl millet exhibited improved attention and memory compared to those who consumed conventional pearl millet, according to Penn State researchers.
A study developed super-resolution nanoscope.,The device not only presents a 3D view of the molecules in the brain, but it does so at a resolution ten times higher than anything that has gone before. It is hoped that this new imaging technique will offer vital insight into the progression of the disease and lead to new treatments.
Tackling Alzheimer’s disease is a multifaceted issue, but among the biggest obstacles to overcome is not being able to see the origins of the condition. Already, there is a change as a result of the instrument. Scientists at Indiana University have used it to understand better the plaques that form in the brain of patients with Alzheimer’s. They were able to pinpoint characteristics with the potential to be the cause of the damage.
Researchers have found people suffering from osteoarthritis in the knees reported reduced pain when exposed to visual illusions that altered the size of their knees
Australian researchers said Wednesday they have developed a blood test for melanoma in its early stages, calling it a "world first" breakthrough that could save many lives.
Researchers have known that RNA encodes instructions to make proteins. The building blocks that comprise RNA-; A, U, C, and Gs-; form a blueprint for the protein-making machinery in cells. To make proteins, the machinery latches on RNA at one end and then scans along the RNA until it reaches an AUG string, which is the signal to start translating the genetic code into a protein. The study was published in Nature.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual or questioning (LGBQ) teens are at substantially higher risk of substance use than their heterosexual peers, according to a new study led by San Diego State University researchers and published in the American Journal of Public Health.
A study recommended new guidelines for high blood pressure (hypertension) would dramatically increase the number of people labeled as having the condition and being recommended for drug treatment, finds a study published by The BMJ today.
A relatively simple blood test could refine current lung cancer screening eligibility criteria and help identify more high-risk individuals for low-dose CT (LDCT), according to an international research group.
