According to new research published in the JAMA Surgery, surgeons trained in nonuniversity- and university-based residency programs have distinct practice patterns. When compared to the same clinical setting, surgeons from both training backgrounds achieve similar clinical outcomes.
According to a new data, cervical dilatation during labour for vaginal births can progress more slowly than the widely accepted benchmark of 1 cm / hour in many women. The study findings were published in the PLOS Medicine . Spontaneous labor progression for vaginal births is slower than expected in many women.
A new study has suggested that a specific group of bile acids could directly burn away the lipids in fat depots, effectively making it a new therapy against obesity.When bile acids concentration in the blood reaches a certain level, it can turn up the thermostat and increase fat burning for energy and heat production.
In this study, scientists discovered that bile acids can turn fat-storing cells into fat-burning ones. This process is called thermogenesis (literally, "heat production") and it helps maintain body temperature in cold environments. Beige cells have recently attracted a lot of attention, especially because adults have very low numbers of active brown adipocytes that burn energy.
In a new research, scientists have found that visit preparation and alignment of visit agendas were critical concepts influencing primary care visit interactions. Time constraints require patients and physicians to implement proactive strategies early in the visit to better manage their limited time together.
According to a new study, children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) often have a hard time switching gears from one task to another. However, being bilingual may actually make it a bit easier for them to do so. The study findings were published in the Child Development.
The researchers show that the latest cholera pandemic originated in Asia, and that most of antibiotic resistant strains come from this continent. They recently published two studies tracing the history of cholera outbreaks in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean from the last 60 years. This study has been published in Science.
A new study, published in Nature Communications, has found a new way of halting the growth of breast cancer cells. In the study, researchers explore a new way to starve cancer cells from their molecular energy source. They hope that their discoveries can be further developed into a new way of treating breast cancer, and possibly other types of cancer.
Air pollution trapped by winter inversions along Utah's Wasatch Front, the state's most populated region, is estimated to send more than 200 people to the emergency room with pneumonia each year, according to a study by University of Utah Health and Intermountain Healthcare. Bad air quality especially erodes the health of adults over age 65, a population particularly vulnerable to the effects of pneumonia.
A new study published in the journal BMC Medicine has suggested that frailty and cognitive impairment before surgery are associated with developing complications after surgery, but not the age of older patients. In addition to frailty, depressive symptoms and smoking were also associated with developing postoperative complications following elective surgery.
A recent study conducted at the University of Tampere, Tampere University of Technology, Pirkanmaa Hospital District and Fimlab in Finland has concluded that an electronic nose (eNose) can be used to identify the most common bacteria causing soft tissue infections.
