Sub-optimal physical and mental health was reported in over 50% of nurses who undertook a national survey. The nurses who were unwell had a 26-71% higher likelihood of reporting medical errors than healthy nurses. In the U.S., 1,790 nurses were reported to commit medical errors due to their depression.
A new study was published in Arthritis Care & Research regarding the link between rheumatoid arthritis and increased risk of developing COPD. The article suggests that greater vigilance is required to monitor the increased risk of COPD in those with chronic inflammatory conditions.
A research presented at the 22nd Congress of European Hematology Association (EHA 2017) stated that outcomes of a phase II trial indicated positive responses to dasatinib in patients with imatinib-resistant/intolerant or newly diagnosed chronic myeloid leukaemia in chronic phase (CML-CP).
Noninvasive Ventilation is the standard of care for treating patients hospitalized for COPD exacerbation. Some research suggests that home-based NIV added to usual care following hospitalization may also benefit some patients, but results are conflicting, and it is unclear whether or not benefits may be most apparent in specific groups. A recent trial assessed home-based NIV following hospitalization for acute decompensated hypercapnic exacerbation of COPD that required NIV in the hospital. This trial demonstrated that the addition of home-based NIV to oxygen therapy might reduce the risk of the composite outcome of hospital readmission or death within 12 months among adults recently hospitalized for COPD exacerbation who had persistent hypercapnia and hypoxemia.
Brain cells communicate with one another with the help of a neurotransmitter called serotonin, which is playing essential roles in stabilizing mood and regulating stress.Previous attempts failed to achieve agreement in identifying the whole theory of brain serotonin function. The existing view should update to incorporate a 'two-pronged' model of how serotonin acts, researchers argue.
A new study presented at the ANESTHESIOLOGY 2017 annual meeting, reveals that women who deliver in winter or spring have the lower risk of developing postpartum depression (PPD) than women who give birth in the fall or summer.
The majority of cancer drugs approved in Europe (2009-2013) found to improve survival or quality of life for patients were often based on poor evidence. The results of a study conducted by King's College London and the London School of Economics indicate that the benefits of many of these drugs over existing drugs are marginal.
A new study published in the Applied and Environmental Microbiology, reported that use of antibiotics on humans and animals, and use of biocidal cleaning products such as bleach was linked to multidrug resistance in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in the home. The contamination of the home environment might contribute to reinfection of both humans and animals with MRSA, and to subsequent failure of treatment.
A new protein study led by the scientists from the University of Notre Dame provides better insight into the underlying basis for disease. The study was published in recent issue of journal Science.
A recent study from the University of Copenhagen denies the well-accepted hypothesis that extremely high levels of serum high-density lipids (HDL) are the good thing. Good cholesterol (HDL) in excess was assumed to be good for health, but it might not be good as we thought.
A new study published in the PLOS ONE exposed the influence of sleep on eyewitness’s ability to pick a convict out of police lineup. It states that eyewitnesses to a crime who sleep before being given a lineup are much less likely to choose an innocent person out of a lineup.
