9 Clear Signs You’re About to Faint

October 08, 2019

Julian M. Stewart, M.D., Ph.D., headshotFainting—also called syncope—occurs when the brain experiences a sudden decrease in blood or oxygen levels (or both) due to a drop in blood pressure and heart rate. Thirty-five percent of people will have at least one fainting episode in their lifetime, either due to abnormal heart rhythms, overheating, or other causes, according to Julian Stewart, MD, professor of pediatric cardiology at New York Medical College in Hawthorne, New York. And feeling faint can happen to both children and adults. Know these symptoms of fainting and take the proper precautions to avoid injury and ensure that a one-time fainting spell doesn’t turn into a true medical emergency.

Be Wary of P Values: Ask About Effect Size

October 04, 2019

Leslie L. Citrome, M.D., M.P.H.We can measure effect size by the number of points improved on a rating scale, but that is difficult to interpret. Is a 4-point average improvement important? Hard to tell! Better off using a metric such as Number Needed to Treat (NNT) which can answer the question: "How many patients do you need to treat with one agent versus the other before expecting to encounter one additional responder?"

Pulmonary Embolism: What Duane Chapman’s Dangerous Condition Is &How It’s Treated: Docs Explain

September 30, 2019

Tanya DuttaDuane ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ Chapman, 66, is facing some serious health issues. Only weeks after losing his wife Beth, 51, to cancer, the bounty hunter was hospitalized on Sept. 14 for a “heart emergency,” leading to his diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism. But what exactly is the condition, and how does it start? “A pulmonary embolism is a blood clot that forms in the large veins, usually of the legs, although sometimes the arms, breaks off and travels into the blood vessels of the lungs,” Dr. Tanya Dutta, Director of Echocardiography at Westchester Medical Center explains to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “As the blood vessels become smaller, the clot eventually becomes lodged and obstructs blood flow. Once blood flow is obstructed, delivery of oxygen to the body decreases.”

The $100 Tube of Toothpaste Is Here

September 24, 2019

TCDMAs with many beauty products in the world of luxury, it turns out that toothpaste isn’t really necessary. Sure, it can freshen breath and help whiten teeth, but the real benefits of brushing come from the bristles on a toothbrush and their ability to scrape and disrupt dental plaque that leads to tooth decay and gum disease. Along with flossing once a day—arguably the most important—brushing twice daily is crucial to preventing oral infections, according to the American Dental Association.
