Astronauts Cardiovascular Systems Adapt To Conditions Aboard the ISS

According to a researcher, a little more time on the treadmill may be just what the doctor ordered for Canada's astronauts battling microgravity's effects on circulation. They can improve astronauts' health and may also help understand and prevent falls among frail elderly people on Earth. Shoemaker was co-investigator on the Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Control on Return from the International Space Station (CCISS), which studied the effects of long space missions on astronauts' hearts and the blood vessels that supply the brain. 

New Study Sheds Light on Body's Response to Killer Fungus

A new research, from the University of Aberdeen, shed light on the human immune system's response to a deadly fungus called Aspergillus fumigatus. 

The findings, reported in the journal Naturecould help in the fight against the fungal infection that kills around 200,000 people every year and causes lung and allergic diseases in millions of others.

Investigation Of IONM Team's Objective Communication With Anesthesia Providers

Few studies have investigated the IONM team's objective communication with anaesthesia providers. We conducted a retrospective review of IONM-related quality assurance data to identify how changes in the evoked potentials observed during the surgery were communicated within our IONM-anesthesia team and determined the resulting qualitative outcomes. Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) is the standard of care during many spinal, vascular, and intracranial surgeries.
