Resuscitation - Vital Treatment Option Applies to More Than Cardiac Events

July 09, 2019

That’s understandable, since even in the medical community resuscitation is often seen as primarily focused around patients presenting with heart attacks or other cardiac-related issues. However, this lifesaving activity is vital to improve outcomes in many other patient conditions as well, says Dr. David Markenson, Chief Medical Officer for the American Red Cross Training Services and Medical Director at the New York Medical College Center for Disease Medicine, which he co-founded in 2005.

The Need for Clinical Trial Navigators

June 20, 2019

People facing a poor prognosis may not want to squander their limited energy on traveling, undergoing invasive scans or inhabiting hospital environments. The location of trials in urban centers poses a challenge for rural populations. Additionally, eligibility requirements make it impossible to enroll when people don’t have a specific genetic mutation or have previously taken a specific drug.

“A recent analysis of human-biting ticks worldwide considers H. longicornis a ‘frequent’ parasite of humans. ... If future introductions of this tick species should occur and if some of the introduced ticks were infected with [severe fever with thrombocytopenia virus], this could indeed post a public health concern.”

Breast implants linked to rare form of cancer, but FDA declines to ban

June 14, 2019

Kaveh Alizadeh (7-31-17)Recent medical studies have found that anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), which is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, is notably higher in patients who have textured implants, compared to other types. The majority of women in the U.S. get “smooth surface” implants rather than textured, and to-date there has been no connection found between smooth and the BIA-ALCL.
