Brain Shrinks during pregnancy

From the moment a developing embryo implants in the womb, a woman’s body begins to undergo a slew of changes. Some are immediately apparent to the mom-to-be a growing belly, fatigue, mood swings, and morning sickness, among others. What may not be so obvious are the changes happening in her brain those adaptations included changes to the structure and function of the woman’s brain too.

Comparing MRI images taken before women became pregnant with images taken after they had given birth; the researchers found pregnancy shrinks the brain’s gray matter, the pinkish-gray tissue containing the cell bodies and synapses of nerve cells. The volume loss persisted for at least two years after childbirth.

The areas of the brain that shrunk the most were those involved in social cognition, the ability to figure out what someone else is thinking and feeling. When a new mom was shown a picture of her baby, these areas of the brain lit up with activity. Enhanced social cognition might help a mother take care of her baby, enabling her to decode the child’s various coos and cries and figure out what she needs.

Improvements in social cognition might come at a cost. While studies looking at cognitive changes during pregnancy and the postpartum period have produced mixed results, many women report experiencing memory problems, a phenomenon termed “pregnancy brain.” Spatial memory, for example, might suffer late in pregnancy because it’s not critical for offspring survival during that time. Instead, the body redirects energy and resources to caring for the baby.

Hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and others most likely drive the changes in the brain structure and function during pregnancy. Hormones can exert a powerful influence on brain cells, and no time in a person’s life produces more extreme hormone fluctuations than pregnancy. Yet, researchers have largely neglected how pregnancy and its hormone surges shape the brain — in the last century there have been only a few dozen studies exploring pregnancy’s impact on women’s brains.

Laser dentistry

Laser dentistry can be a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. The potential for it to improve dental procedures rests in the dentist’s ability to control power output and the duration of exposure on the tissue (whether gum or tooth structure), allowing for treatment of a highly specific area of focus without damaging surrounding tissues.

If we consider our self somewhat of an anxious dental patient and are seeking extreme safety and comfort, you might consider looking for dentists who have incorporated laser techniques into their practices and treatments. It is estimated that 6 percent of general dentists own a laser for soft-tissue applications, with that number expected to increase over time.

As the applications for dental lasers expand, greater numbers of dentists will use the technology to provide patients with precision treatment that may minimize pain and recovery time.

Types of Dental Lasers

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved of a variety of hard and soft tissue lasers for use in the dental treatment of adults and children. Because dental lasers boast unique absorption characteristics, they are used to perform specific dental procedures.

Hard Tissue Lasers: Hard tissue lasers have a wavelength that is highly absorbable by hydroxyapatite (calcium phosphate salt found in bone and teeth) and water, making them more effective for cutting through tooth structure. Hard tissue lasers include the Erbium YAG and the Erbium chromium YSGG. The primary use of hard tissue lasers is to cut into bone and teeth with extreme precision. Hard tissue lasers are often used in the “prepping” or “shaping” of teeth for composite bonding, the removal of small amounts of tooth structure and the repair of certain worn down dental fillings.

Soft Tissue Lasers: Soft tissue lasers boast a wavelength that is highly absorbable by water and hemoglobin (oxygenating protein in red blood cells), making them more effective for soft tissue management. Commonly used soft tissue lasers include Neodymium YAG (Nd:YAG) and diode lasers, which may be used as a component of periodontal treatment and have the ability to kill bacteria and activate the re-growth of tissues. The carbon-dioxide laser minimizes damage to surrounding tissue and removes tissue faster than the fiber optic method. Soft tissue lasers penetrate soft tissue while sealing blood vessels and nerve endings. This is the primary reason why many people experience virtually no postoperative pain following the use of a laser. Also, soft tissue lasers allow tissues to heal faster. It is for this reason that a growing number of cosmetic dental practices are incorporating the use of soft tissue lasers for gingival sculpting procedures.

Some dental laser technology has been developed that can be used to generate both hard and soft tissue laser energy, depending upon the patient’s needs.

In addition to the lasers used for cutting and shaping hard and soft tissues, other laser types are specifically designed for viewing the insides of teeth and cells using Optical Coherence Tomography, a non-invasive imaging technique. Other lasers provide energy and specific proteins that help move messages between cells to match the body’s natural ability to use light spectrums to heal damaged cells.



Telehealth Innovations

Besides technology development, other activities will contribute to innovations in telehealth for training, education, and research. Patterns of healthcare delivery need to change in order to incorporate the benefits of telehealth applications. For example, tele training programs such as Antenatal and Neonatal Guidelines, Education, and Learning System and Peds PLACE, a combined obstetrical and pediatric telemedicine to outreach the program that connects with hospitals throughout the state of Arkansas with each other and the single academic medical center through weekly telemedicine conferences and 24/7 consultation, can reduce unnecessary costs while improving community health outcomes. Developers need to listen to healthcare and research professionals and organizations in order to understand their needs for tele training and tele research. Strategic partnerships with industry are key to development of novel applications.

Research at the intersection of computational mechanics, real-time computing, computer graphics, and computer haptics is key to the development of novel computational technology for real-time surgical simulation with visual and touch feedback. Technically, there is a need for network architectures that support multiple simulation users through direct interfaces with computer clouds. Examples linked to telehealth include the development of the Software Framework for Multimodal Interactive Simulations, a research resource that allows rapid development of networked interactive environments with real-time graphics and haptics; a hybrid network architecture that allows client-server as well as peer-to-peer communications for better synchronization; an environment where surgical students, geographically separated, can collaboratively learn and interact with specialists; tele mentoring environments where trainees may be “hand held” by geographically separated experts; and tele surgical planning environments where experts who are geographically separated may collaborate to plan a surgery. In addition, implementation and access to dynamic circuit networks technology should improve both network utilization and user experience.

There is wide agreement that formal evaluation of telehealth technologies is necessary to assess their effectiveness in real-world conditions. However, outcomes research studies are complex activities that require time, effort, and attention to detail. In order to bring the benefits in telehealth to the user in a timely fashion, outcomes research studies should be designed, implemented, and analyzed with utmost care so that they can readily provide the evidence required by users and policy makers.

Scoliosis: Braces for Kids

Most of the people are suffering from scoliosis, a sideways curvature of the spine. It includes approximately 2 to 3 percent of adolescents who are diagnosed each year with idiopathic scoliosis, which is usually identified during puberty and progresses until skeletal maturity. One in out of 500 children today requires treatment using spine braces and 1 in 5,000 need spinal surgery. This typical spine brace is made up of rigid plastic that fits trunk and hips and applies counter-pressure on the spine's abnormal curve around the child, based up on that pressure and support on the curve from outside will stimulate more normal growth of the spine.

The rigid braces have several shortcomings they "freeze" the child's upper body and limit movement to such an extent that users often avoid wearing the brace. And as the child grows, the required external forces to correct the abnormal posture change along the length of the curve and over the course of treatment. It is having the flexibility to move when wearing a spinal brace while still applying corrective forces would be a very useful feature for both patients and physicians.

One professor of mechanical engineering and of rehabilitation and regenerative medicine is working on solving about this problem. The professors are started to develop a dynamic spine brace that is more flexible than the rigid braces now in use.

Most of the children are used to take a rigid brace to treat scoliosis, the patients undergo spinal fusion surgery, so this will make a big difference, If new design make then it will be flexible brace and modulates and it is corrective forces on the spine in desired directions while still allowing the users to perform typical everyday activities, we will bring revolutionary change to the field.

They already developed prototype wearable spine braces that consist of rings that fit on the human torso. These types of rings are dynamically actuated by servomotors placed on adjacent rings to control the force or position applied on the human body. Onboard sensors record the force and motion data and transmit the information to a host pc for monitoring and adjusting the treatment. They have additionally advances that are a second brace that is fully passive, make of compliant components able to adjust stiffness in specific directions. However, both these braces have drawbacks. This dynamic brace needs an active power source while the passive brace but it cannot provide active controls.

The team, which is drawn together experts in robotics and pediatric orthopedics, plans to test all three types of braces on children with scoliosis. Preliminary experiment have started characterize the feasibility of the dynamic braces on healthy subjects with normal spines to characterize the body's stiffness in different directions during sports of daily living.

Scoliosis impacts the quality of life of these affected, limiting their activity, causing pain, and diminishing their esteem. This will transform treatment due to the ability of the brace to modulate force or position at specific locations of the spine and will greatly improve the quality of life for children with this debilitating condition.

Skin diseases and socioeconomic factors

The skin diseases in developing countries are associated with socioeconomic factors. It is generally agreed that a public health approach to dermatology in this setting is particularly appropriate but, there has been little epidemiologic research are going to examine which particular socioeconomic factors are important to determinants of the prevalence of skin disease.

A survey of villages involved randomly selected some households using a questionnaire, measurements of houses and water quality, and examination of the skin to household members.

Significant skin disease was encountered in 26.9%. Transmissible diseases comprised the many of skin diseases with73.9% of younger age groups being affected most. Socioeconomic conditions were poor, with low quality, crowded housing, low levels of literacy, unsatisfactory water sources, and few households with a regular cash income. Household density is significantly associated with transmissible skin disease and other indicators of poverty (e.g., no regular cash income and illiteracy) did not correlate with the prevalence of skin disease.

Skin disease is more commonly seen in the villages, especially transmissible diseases in the younger age groups. Household density is the only socio‐economic factor significantly associated with skin disease. Reduction of household density is an attainable intervention that will reduce the prevalence of skin disease in rural populations. Simple studies like this one should be the first step in community dermatology, assessing the burden of skin disease in communities and looking for particular factors with which public health interventions will effectively reduce the prevalence of skin disease.

Innovations in Chronic Wound Management

Chronic wounds, such as venous leg ulcers, have a devastating effect on quality of life and can lead to loss of independence and social isolation. It is estimated that the prevalence of chronic wounds is growing at the rate of around 12% a year and these wounds have a substantial economic burden on the NHS. Chronic wound management is primarily nurse-led and requires skills and knowledge to care for patients who frequently have multiple comorbidities that can adversely affect healing.

This award is open to individual nurses or teams in the NHS or independent sector and those working in specialist wound care services. Entrants must be able to demonstrate how a change in practice has resulted in clear improvements in patients’ or clients’ wound healing, enhanced their quality of life and/or prevented reoccurrence of their wound.

A complete overview of Glucose and Sugar levels in human's

Blood sugar and glucose

Sugar is a carbohydrate found naturally in food. So many types of sugars are there i.e. glucose belongs to a type of sugar called monosaccharides or simple sugar. It is the primary source of energy and the body tissues need glucose to function normally, especially the brain. The blood sugar and blood glucose are often used interchangeably and refer to the amount of glucose carried in the blood.

Normal blood sugar level

Understanding what a normal blood sugar level is vital to diabetes prevention or management. Blood sugar level refers to the amount of glucose which present in the blood, and it sometimes known as blood glucose level and the concentration of glucose in the blood is expressed in mmol.

In healthy people without diabetes, your blood glucose level should measure between 4.0-5.5 mmol/l before a meal and should be less than 8.0 mmol/l two hours after a meal.

The blood glucose level is also measured by glycated hemoglobin, HbA1c, which gives information on the average blood glucose level over the last 2-3 months. A healthy person without diabetes should have HbA1c less than 42  mmol/mol.

Diabetes is diagnosed when the fasting blood glucose is greater than 7.0 mmol/l, random blood glucose greater than 11.1  mmol/l, or HbA1c greater than 48 mmol/mol.

A fasting blood glucose level between 5.5 and 6.9 mmol/l or HbA1c between 42 and 47 mmol/mol may indicate increased risk for type 2 diabetes, particularly those with obesity, family history of diabetes or from certain ethnic groups.

Low blood glucose is also known as hypoglycemia. It is defined by blood glucose below 4 mmol/l.

Low blood sugar symptoms

In the early stages of hypoglycemia, the body will react by releasing hormones such as adrenaline to warn that the blood glucose is going low so that actions can be taken to reverse the hypoglycemia.

This causes symptoms include palpitations, hunger, feeling warm or flushed, tremulous and sweaty.

If the blood glucose falls lower, brain function will be affected resulting in confusion, irritability, aggressive behavior, seizure and coma.

Since the brain is highly dependent on glucose to function, frequent hypoglycemia can cause cognitive impairment.

Some people with diabetes may have hypoglycemia unawareness where the warning symptoms are weak, especially during the early stages of hypoglycemia. This usually occurs in those with long duration of diabetes, tight diabetes control or frequent hypoglycemia. This condition is potentially dangerous as the patient is unaware the blood glucose is going low and therefore, not able to correct the low blood glucose at an early stage until it is too late when the brain function is affected. If untreated, prolonged severe hypoglycemia can cause permanent brain damage.

People can experience hypoglycemia at night when they're asleep. Low blood glucose level can wake the person up or lead to headaches, tiredness and sweat-soaked sheets in the morning.

High blood sugar symptoms

The symptoms of high blood sugar level occur when diabetes is uncontrolled, regardless of the type of diabetes. Typically, the patient experiences thirst, dry mouth, frequent urination, blurred vision and tiredness. In more extreme cases, weight loss can occur.

Occasional mild periods of high blood sugar level are non-threatening. They can require treatment or return to normal levels on their own. But frequent or severe episodes can be dangerous and can lead to coma.

To control

Poorly controlled blood glucose levels can lead to health complications. High glucose levels over a prolonged period, usually over several years, can damage the blood vessels in the eyes, kidneys, nerves and legs (peripheral vascular disease and gangrene). It can cause a heart attack or stroke. Apart from poor diabetes control, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels also contribute to these complications. These risk factors are common in type 2 diabetes. Adequate treatment of the blood pressure and cholesterol levels are as important as managing the glucose control to reduce the complications.


Modified cognitive behavior therapy (CBT)

The effectiveness among inpatients with depression of a modified cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) application is examined. a group of 300 inpatient admissions with a number one diagnosis of depression attending a private psychiatric clinic had been assessed at the beginning and end of a two-week CBT program. The effectiveness of the remedy was confirmed by improvements at the Beck depression inventory (BDI), the health of the nation outcome scales, locus of control of behavior scale, and the global assessment of function. The changes on the BDI for patients with depression were benchmarked against estimates generated from published research. The degree of exchange in a -week period for inpatients with depression was similar to that observed in efficacy studies of CBT that typically run over a more extended time. Implications for integrating CBT with inpatient offerings are discussed.

Empirically validated treatments are translated into routine clinical practice is an essential activity that requires a multitude of factors to be addressed. For any given disorder, some of these factors include the type of patients being treated, the setting in which treatment is delivered (including the funding arrangements and costs incurred), the attitudes and perceptions of staff about the treatment, and the other psychological and physical disorders, diseases, and disabilities that may co-occur with the condition being treated. These various factors mean that the translation will first involve a thoughtful adaptation to the given setting that takes into account local issues, current practices, staff attitudes, and funding arrangements. And this translation will involve evaluation of the effectiveness of the resulting treatment plus an empirical consideration of factors believed to influence outcome so that treatment can be furtherly improve. At Present it reports an attempt to translate a cognitive-behavioral program for depression to an inpatient hospital setting.

This cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has a sound evidence support in the treatment of depression, but little direction about adaptation to inpatient settings. When considering translation into an inpatient setting, a number of considerations are important. those who was in depression the ones are required inpatient admissions and often do so at a time of disaster or extreme symptom severity, and that they want quick and safe go back them to levels of independent function. For instance, inpatient treatment may be appropriate if there is a risk of suicide, but a goal will be to reduce symptoms rapidly, so the need for a restricted environment is removed swiftly.. The individuals with depression who do not require hospitalization may find an optimal treatment format to be brief, in weekly sessions. However, for individuals who are in a hospital, the logistics of organizing a more time-intensive program are less, and hospital staff is already present. Thus, an intensive day-long format of CBT becomes not only a viable option, but also a potentially good use of time. Third, given the constant turnover within a hospital, it is harder to mount disorder-specific treatments because the patients will possess various degrees of comorbidity and might not fit neatly into diagnostic categories, yet they may benefit from a CBT program. For reasons such as these, Perth Clinic developed an intensive CBT program suitable for inpatients. It is a closed-group program that is open to various diagnostic groups (but mainly depression and anxiety) during office hours for a two-week period. It is regarding group CBT for depression would generalize to this different format.

New innovations in halers

Smart inhalers

Treatments for asthma Inhaled corticosteroids and bronchodilators are the cornerstone.

It is the first step of medication helps control inflammation while the second provides immediate relief when symptoms flare.
Most of the people are not using an inhaler in a proper manner i.e. 94 percent people. If they’re used correctly Inhalers are efficient.

 In Standard of care works for nearly 90 percent of patients when taken correctly. In other case studies shows that about 50 percent of patients with asthma is not well controlled, which leads us to believe more can be done to increase adherence.

Enter Bluetooth-enabled smart inhalers.

These gadgets are designed to detect inhaler use, remind patients to use their medication, encourage people to use properly, and gather data about a patient’s inhaler use that can help guide care.

When the inhaler is using then automatically it records the date, time, place, and whether the dose was correctly administered.

It is giving a valuable insight to determine how adherent patients are controlling their medications as well as help us understand the patterns of when a patient experiences a flare.

New devices, which clip to existing inhalers and send data to a smartphone app, are available now.

In a clinical trial for Propeller’s add-on smart inhaler device, researchers found that participants used less reliever medication, has more reliever-free days, and improved they overall asthma control over the 12 months of the study.

The first fully integrated smart inhalers should be available to consumers by the middle of the year 2018.

End‐stage liver disease patient is treated with Palliative care

Symptomatology in patients with palliative cirrhosis according to (revised) Edmonton Symptom Assessment System and the debilitating complications of the end‐stage liver disease (ESLD) is associated with substantial symptom burden. These symptoms are often suboptimally controlled, resulting in poor quality of life among those with ESLD.

The Palliative care (PC) means it is a patient and family‐centered care that optimizes the quality of life by anticipating, preventing, and treating suffering and should be considered for patients with advanced chronic illness, at any point in disease trajectory. In contrast, hospice, which is a component of PC, is appropriate for those whose life expectancy is less than 6 months. Addressing end‐of‐life issues through PC or hospice referral provides improved communication between patients, their caregivers, and their healthcare team; reduces symptom burden; and enhances the quality of life. In other diseases (non–small cell lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, and congestive heart failure), PC and hospice can prolong life as well. From an institutional perspective, PC consultation can also be cost‐saving. Despite all of this, end‐of‐life issues for patients with cirrhosis are often not addressed until too late, if at all.

Utilization of PC in ESLD

A recent study demonstrated that, among patients with decompensated cirrhosis with no curative options (i.e., removed from the liver transplantation < waiting list or declined for transplant), only 11% were referred for PC.2 Of those; only 28% had documented do not resuscitate (DNR) status. It is demonstrated a similarly low utilization rate of PC services among veterans with cirrhosis who died within 1 year of cirrhosis diagnosis: only 7.5% received PC services and, when they did, it was very late in their disease trajectory (median of 32 days from PC consultation to death).

Disease Factors

It is unlike the progressive decline that occurs with cancer, ESLD is characterized by periods of relative stability interposed with episodes of hepatic decompensation that can result in rapid decline and death.

Patient Factors

Patients may have a poor understanding of liver disease severity and prognosis, due to inadequate physician communication or poor health literacy. When faced with life‐limiting illness, some patients may also refuse to accept prognosis. For some patients and their families, the prospect of a life‐saving intervention such as LT precludes consideration of any treatment focus that does not offer prolongation of life or cure. Misperception of PC and its association with giving up may also contribute to underutilization. All of these issues may be further exacerbated by hepatic encephalopathy and the associated uncertainty about decisional capacity.

Physician Factors

In a web‐based survey of intensive care nurses, house officers, and attending’s at a large liver transplant center, 84% of respondents indicated that the greatest barrier to PC involvement in patients with ESLD was the attending physician.10 Potential physician‐related barriers are multiple and well described in other diseases: overestimation of life expectancy, misperception of or unfavorable attitudes towards PC services, discomfort with end‐of‐life discussions. This discomfort with end‐of‐life discussions can be particularly challenging for a hepatologist who is working with their patient toward a mutual curative goal such as LT. Suboptimal end‐of‐life physician communication can result in patients being unaware of their prognosis as well as physicians were unaware of their patient's end‐of‐life preferences. Uncertainty and confusion about how and when to integrate PC into standard ESLD management may also result in under‐referral, indicating the need for guidelines to help guide timely and appropriate referral.

A multidisciplinary palliative assessment and radiotherapy clinic to Improve cancer patient experience

Patients with cancer-induced bone pain often wait weeks to receive palliative radiotherapy treatment and to have an assessment by specialist palliative care services and other allied health professionals (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, dietetics). While waiting, they continue to have psychological distress and potentially debilitating physical problems.

One treatment of palliative radiotherapy reduces cancer-induced bone pain in 60% of people and completely removes pain in 25%.

The Access of palliative care services for cancer patients relies on an entirely separate referral pathway. Similarly, access to assessment by allied health professionals is limited and via a further separate set of pathways.

Experience and research in other areas of the world have demonstrated the feasibility of combining assessments from a number of different specialists with the entire radiotherapy pathway, in one hospital visit. Some of these services have also incorporated specialist palliative care assessment.

This will involve developing a rapid access, multidisciplinary palliative assessment and radiotherapy treatment clinic. It is to combine assessment by specialist professionals from palliative care and clinical oncology with the planning and delivery of palliative radiotherapy.

The clinic will perform a process in a single half-day visit which normally takes 2-3 weeks and at least three separate appointments.

It is to improve referral to treatment timescales; manage patients closer to home once stabilized reduce the number of GP visits; reduce outpatient visits, non-elective admissions and associated length of stay; and earlier reduction of pain and improved patient mental health and wellbeing.

Innovation in geriatrics and gerontology

Nurses have been leading healthcare innovations since the dawn of the profession. They have ushered in broad-scale changes in areas ranging from better hygiene practices for wounded soldiers to public health visits to overcrowded urban homes to reproductive health services for women.

In more recent decades, nurses have begun developing innovations in geriatric care to help meet the massive health care needs of an aging population. They are finding new ways to improve the quality of care for older adults and ensure that it takes family and community considerations into account. They improve access to highly skilled health care providers with appropriate training in geriatrics, narrow disparities that disproportionately affect older minorities and avoid preventable hospital readmissions.

Their work answers the call from a groundbreaking report on the future of nursing that was released in 2010. It urges nurses to continue their long legacy of innovation as the health care needs of the population change from acute and infectious disease to that of an aging population with chronic disease.

The country is, indeed, undergoing dramatic demographic changes. As Baby Boomers age and immigration patterns change, it is becoming older and more diverse. By 2050, the number of people from age 65 and older will hit 40 million, about 20 percent of the population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. These changes will strain the health care system and the nursing profession, the largest segment of the healthcare workforce.

Experts say the nursing workforce is not adequately prepared for a crush of elderly patients who are living longer, and sicker, with more chronic and complex health conditions. To meet these growing health care demands and bridge gaps in services for older Americans, the IOM said nurses must continue to develop innovative care models based on current successes in rural aging and other areas.

Fortunately, many nurses are already leading efforts to meet current and future healthcare needs. Nurses are beginning to home in on the chronicity and the larger number of older people coming down the pike.

The Transitional Care Model utilizes nurses to reduce hospital readmissions among elderly patients after they have been discharged from the hospital. As many as one-third of re-hospitalizations are considered preventable, so reducing readmissions not only improves patients’ quality of life but reduces health care costs.

The Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is an example of a nurse-driven innovation in geriatric care. A replication of a program spearheaded many years ago it is now a federally legislated program in which interdisciplinary teams of providers give frail elders coordinated health, medical, and social services support by a one-stop system, a process that enables many to live in their own homes for longer periods of time.

Another nurse-led innovation, Nurses Improving Care for Health System Elders (NICHE), was developed to better meet the needs of older adults in a health care system that, in general, lacked access to gerontology-trained providers and to care coordination services. The NICHE program is helping hospitals and, increasingly, community health systems provide older Americans with sensitive and exemplary care. Under the program, nurses are empowered by knowledge to provide high-quality care for older adults and, in doing so, teach others about the uniqueness of caring for older adults.

Early Treatment for Lyme Disease

For analyzing Lyme disease that the doctors should use their clinical judgment to check people’s symptoms. Lyme disease can cause a circular red rash – medically referred to as erythema migrans – in the days or weeks after a tick bite. If this occurs, then doctors can diagnose Lyme disease immediately and give the person antibiotics.

Lyme disease symptoms are common with those of other conditions and so lab tests can be useful to help confirm a diagnosis. Typical symptoms can include combinations of a headache, fever, joint pain or fatigue as well as others that are more specific such as problems with nerves or joints.

 The tests, alongside the clinician’s judgment and its tests called ELISA and immunoblot, look for antibodies created by the body’s immune system to fight infection.

Not everyone with Lyme disease will have positive test clinicians that strongly suspect someone has Lyme disease should start them on antibiotic treatment while waiting for test results.

This will help raise awareness and drive up the standard of care right now so we can spot Lyme disease sooner and provide people with prompt treatment. We have to know about prevalence in this country and the benefit of long-term treatment options. Further research into Lyme disease should be a high-priority area in the world so we can continue to improve care.

People who have had initial treatment for Lyme disease sometimes continue to experience symptoms. The second course of antibiotics may be considered if there is a chance the first treatment did not clear the infection.

The evidence on the benefit of prolonged antibiotic treatment was limited. If unexplained symptoms persist, and the clinicians should seek a second opinion from a specialist.

The guideline highlights that persistent symptoms can affect people’s ability to continue with day-to-day life. The clinicians should inform their family, employers or schools that the person may need time to gradually return to usual activities.

Lyme disease spreads to humans through an infected tick bite. Ticks are mainly found in grassy and wooded areas, including gardens and parks, but only a small number carry the bacteria that causes Lyme disease.

Women who had Lyme disease during their pregnancy are encouraged to highlight this to their doctor if they have any concerns about their baby. If this happens, their doctor should discuss the details with a child health specialist.


The drug epidemic is putting nurses and inmates at serious risk

Nurses and healthcare assistants are often first on the scene when inmates need emergency care, and under current guidance, they are expected to enter cells before the smoke has cleared. RCN members report suffering the effects of inhaling the drug for hours following exposure, with some unable to drive home after their shifts.

So many cases, a nurse was taken to A&E by ambulance after being knocked unconscious by the psychoactive fumes.

Use of psychoactive substances is widespread in UK prisons, and the situation has become so dangerous that recent month Tees, Esk & Wear Valley NHS Trust withdrew nursing staff from the world due to the risk posed by Spice.

RCN experts argue that existing HMPPS guidance conflates the chronic and long-term issues of exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke with the serious and acute issue of exposure to psychoactive substances.

The guidance also suggests there is a duty for nurses and healthcare assistants to intervene to protect a prisoner in danger of immediate harm in a cell where smoke or fumes has not yet cleared.

This runs contrary to the guidelines produced by the Resuscitation Council which says emergency responders should assess dangerous situations and ensure their own safety before treating casualties.

If this happened in a hospital, there would be uproar and investigation after investigation. It feels like being swept under the carpet. There’s not enough being done.”

As dedicated health professionals, prison nursing staff is expected to offer high-quality care, but they should not be expected to put their own well-being on the line to deliver it. Some of the truly shocking stories of nursing staff passing out or being unable to drive after exposure to Spice.

The scale of this problem demands swift and effective action from HM Prison & Probation Service. We would like to see an urgent review of the guidance that properly reflects the risks posed by this extremely dangerous drug.”

At RCN Congress today, delegates will call on RCN Council to work with employers to improve the morale and working conditions of prison nursing staff across the UK.

Differences: Hospice and palliative care

We must recognize what the differences between palliative care and hospice care so that we are able to ensure that patients and families are getting appropriate care and services at the appropriate times.

Both palliative care and hospice care require an interdisciplinary technique, with a focus on relieving pain and handling bodily and psychological symptoms, even as improving quality of life. What differs is that palliative care must start on the time of diagnosis, while possible, and can be offered at the same time as curative treatments. Hospice care is appropriate for those with a prognosis of six months or much less and excludes concurrent curative remedy.

The Hospice care is a Medicare advantage and new idea but it is quickly recognized its value in support of a quality dying experiences that were patient-centered. According to CMS guidelines, it is moving this beyond the prognostic limits the idea of palliative care was put forward. Palliative care is for anyone with a serious illness. You can have it at any age and at any level of an illness, and you can have it along with curative treatment. It is not dependent on prognosis.

Hospice is an important Medicare gain that provides palliative care for terminally ill patients who may have only months to live. People who get hold of hospice are also not receiving curative treatment for their underlying disease

Put down the electronic devices and leave the tablets for the best sleep

The small analysis of healthy adults of their 20s. Their sleep changed into tracked after 5 straight nights of unrestricted tablet use, after which compared to their sleep patterns after studying printed materials alone. It is not only light from electronic devices it will suppress the secretion of melatonin, the sleep-regulating hormone.

Those participants who are using electronic devices could select to visit bed significantly later, even though they knew they needed to wake up at 6 a.m. But exactly how a pill's glow interferes with sleep remains unclear. A neuroscientist of medicine recommended there can be several possible reasons.

For one, they noted, the human body's 24-hour circadian clock is very sensitive to the blue light that digital devices give off. Or it might be the brightness the people generally tend to keep screens close to their face, filling their visual view with light.

It can be that the individuals were living in our lab for the entire study and not getting bright outdoor light so, relatively, the screen light became quite bright.

The experiment took place in a sleep lab in which light and sound pollution were kept to a minimum. For five nights, members chose whether to use their digital gadgets for reading, emailing, browsing the net, playing video games or watching films. They also selected when to finally go to sleep, knowing that they had to be up at a specific time the next morning.

For the duration of a separate 5-day period, the have a look at participants were allowed to examine only printed books, magazines or newspapers, even though the content choice was theirs.

In each situation, the setting was dimly (and similarly) lit, till participants chose to go to bed, at which time the lighting fixtures have been turned off. The researchers said that who was using pills are less sleepy at bedtime and less alert during their first hour after wake up, compared with print readers.

Tablet users those participants bodies are waited longer at night to produce melatonin, and they fell asleep, in common, 30 minutes later than print readers, the findings showed.

Turning down the screen brightness ought to help, but we do not know how much. The use of a program to exchange the screen output or the use of a filter may help, (however) once more we do not know how much. And spending a lot of time outdoors during the day must help, but it must be the day you are using the screen in bed, not the day after."

The Researchers said these strategies need to be tested in a lab setting so scientists can understand whether -- and how -- they work. There is no substitute for sleep. Put down their electronics and wind down in the evening before heading off to bed for the best night's sleep possible.

RSV: Ribonucleic acid virus

Nowadays Flu season is hitting hard! The centers for disease control (CDC) have suggested that as of 2018, so many children’s have died from headaches related to the flu (CDC, 2018). But, it’s not just the flu that parents have to worry about. Further to the flu, parents of infants and really younger children must also worry about respiratory syncytial virus, extra typically called RSV.

RSV is a seasonal ribonucleic acid (RNA) virus that happens in temperate climates. Even though humans of any age can expand an RSV contamination, extreme infection is most not unusual in the very young and the elderly. It’s miles the most common respiration virus discovered in babies and young kids and is an idea to absolutely infect all babies by the point they reach the age of two years antique.

High threat companies consist of: untimely babies, children younger than 2 years of age with underlying conditions which include congenital heart or persistent lung disease, youngsters with compromised immune structures because of a medical condition or clinical remedy, adults with compromised immune systems and adults sixty-five years and older.

RSV is maximum commonly unfold with the aid of bodily contact. In line with the CDC, the virus can live up to 5 hours on countertops and for several hours on used tissues. RSV is transmitted at once through huge droplets at some stage in near contact with folks who are infected, or circuitously via RSV-infected arms and surfaces. Daycare settings and play areas provide a mess of assets to facilitate transmission of contamination. The surfaces of toys, excessive chairs, and toddler seats can be contaminated with RSV.

Most people inflamed with RSV are contagious for three to 8 days. Toddlers and people with weakened immune systems may be contagious for as much as four weeks.

RSV continues to motive most of the people of visits to healthcare centers, and children that turn out to be infected with RSV will usually whinge of cold-like signs. However, other youngsters can also become seriously sick and require hospitalization. RSV might also cause mild, bloodless-like signs (nasal congestion, mild fever, and cough) in adults and wholesome older youngsters, however, can cause bronchiolitis and pneumonia in kids less than twelve months of age. When infants and youngsters are uncovered to RSV for the primary time, 25 percent to 40 percent of them have symptoms or symptoms of bronchiolitis or pneumonia.

Minor signs consisting of nasal congestion, slight fever, and cold-like lawsuits are often without problems managed at domestic and recovery happens inside 1-2 weeks. Everyone is with symptoms such as nasal flaring, tachypnea, labored respiratory, extreme wheezing, out of control fever, and cyanosis needs to be looking for hospital therapy and may require hospitalization.

Most children hospitalized for RSV are much less than 6 months of age and about zero. Five percent to two percent of kids will require hospitalization. The remedy for RSV is broadly speaking supportively with emphasis on retaining the kid hydrated and preserving oxygen saturations within everyday range. Due to the fact that antibiotics are not powerful for viral diseases, antibiotic therapy is not indicated for RSV.

Improvement of an RSV vaccine is an excessive research priority, but a vaccine is not but available. Synagis® is a monoclonal antibody that facilitates save you severe lower respiratory tract disorder caused by RSV in youngsters at excessive danger for RSV sickness and works by slowly increasing antibody ranges.

One component this is beneficial to assist managers and prevent RSV is that the virus is unstable inside the surroundings and is common without difficulty inactivated with cleaning soap and water and disinfectants. Teaching healthcare people, mother and father, own family participants, and buddies to comply with easy guidelines for frequent and thorough handwashing can help prevent the spread of RSV infection. Also, coach dad and mom to no longer proportion cups, ingesting utensils or meals with a child or individual with bloodless-like signs, and avoid cigarette smoke.

The parents with high-threat young infants that they have to keep away from crowds for the duration of outbreaks of RSV. Ultimately, common handwashing, wiping down surfaces and heading off crowds will decrease the hazard of spreading RSV.

Beneficial Bacteria in Mother’s Milk

Bacteria are found in large numbers all over the human body where there is a channel to the outside world, as an instance in the gut, lungs, and surface of the skin. We always thought that actually inside the human body changed into a bacteria-free environment unless an infection was raging so we are very excited to locate that bacteria are present in breast milk. As a product which is made within the human body, breast milk was traditionally thought to be sterile.

One of the recent researchers has shown that breast milk contains a healthy dose of commensal bacteria i.e. the staphylococci, streptococci, and lactic acid bacteria that are found in the infant's gut. This is not just a bacteria from the skin which have contaminated the samples, however bacteria that have come from inside the breast as an integral component of the milk.

A study of midwifery is determined that each milk sample contained hundreds of different species bacterial around half of the micro biotic community was made up of nine species present in samples. The other half various from one person to another person. This sample also located in human gut microbes; a core set present in all individuals along with a large diversity of separate species to make up a unique person microbiome.

So how do bacteria get into breast milk i.e. A number of them might also come from the mouth of the baby. During feeding the skin of both the mother and baby will be in contact with the child's open mouth and a certain amount of flow-back can occur between the mouth and nipple. greater excitingly it's been suggested that immune cells within the mothers gut can be capable of pick up bacteria and convey them across the body the usage of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic gadget is a network of vessels used to transport blood plasma. It is the main highway for immune cells inside the body and is also worried in the absorption and transports of fat.

The cells thought to be chargeable for picking up the bacteria and transporting them to the breast is called dendritic cells. In non-breastfeeding people, they are used to transport bacteria and bits of bacteria to the rest of the immune system to prepare a defense, and can sometimes carry entire live bacteria.  Recent research has shown that in mice bacteria from the gut translocate into lymph nodes and mammary glands during the overdue tiers of being pregnant and the beginning of lactation. It is also been shown that if breastfeeding women are given a capsule of life (and safe!) bacteria to swallow, these bacteria can be isolated later from the breast milk.

Breastfeeding may additionally reduce the asthma symptoms infants

A new innovation provides further evidence of the health advantages of breastfeeding, after finding babies with a genetic susceptibility to asthma development are less possible to enjoy symptoms of the condition if they're breastfed.

Asthma is estimated to affect mostly youngsters and teenagers around the world, making it one of the most common chronic childhood diseases.

Asthma symptoms are the identical for kids as for adults; these include wheezing, coughing, breathing problems, and chest tightness. However, because children have smaller airways, symptoms may be severe.

As a result, asthma is the third main cause of health center remains and a leading cause of missed school days for children in the world.

While the proper causes of asthma continue to be uncertain, studies have cautioned the respiratory condition can also arise due to environmental and genetic factors.

For example, researchers have associated gene variants in the region 17q21 - located on chromosome 17 - with an increased chance of childhood asthma, and a study posted earlier these months found children with such variants were more likely to experience asthma symptoms as a result of environmental triggers.

But according to the researchers of this modern day innovations- breast-feeding could protect against such symptoms in children with 17q21 gene variants.

 According to research, the researchers protected information from 368 infants who were a part of the Basel-Bern infant Lung development birth cohort

The researchers assessed the genetic profile of every infant, and they gathered data on occurrence and severity of respiration signs and symptoms, as well as breastfeeding repute in the first year of existence.

The children who carried the 17q21gene variations, the risk of respiratory symptom development was 27 percent lower at the weeks they had been breastfed. In the weeks these kids have been not breast-fed, respiratory symptoms were more likely to arise.

Infection-reducing surgical suture and catheter fixer to be fast-tracked for NHS use

surgical suture and a tool for securing peripherally inserted massive catheters (PICCs) are to be rapid-tracked to be used throughout the NHS in England, because of their capability to reduce contamination risk.

The two are among 4 bits of recent technology that NHS England has announced could be added to a central purchasing scheme designed to speed up the adoption of innovation by the health service. These technologies will improve affected person safety and probably reduce the need for expensive tests

Plus Sutures is a new type of surgical suture that has been shown to reduce the rate of surgical site contamination, along with MRSA, through using antimicrobial suture packs. Meanwhile, SecurAcath is a tool to secure a p.c. Those results in shorter maintenance times and less want for device replacement.

SecurAcath is simple to insert, well tolerated, associated with a low incidence of catheter-related complications and does not usually want getting rid of while the catheter is in place, according to scientific technology steering posted by the Countrywide Institute for health and Care Excellence.

The other two improvements are a new form of bowel scope that is expected to pick out more cases of most cancers and image evaluation software program that creates a 3D model of the heart.

They were decided on from amongst 250 applicants to enroll in the Innovation and era price scheme, due to the fact they had been able to display sufficiently strong proof of efficacy and value. By buying those four improvements centrally, NHS England has removed the boundaries to their spread

Selected improvements had to already be in use and equipped to be rolled out widely, and turning in significantly improved pleasant, improved efficiency and affected person benefit.

The programmer – much like the NHS Innovation Accelerator – is meant to deliver improvements in affected person care through cutting forms for clinicians and other innovators and encouraging uptake across the NHS via vital commissioning.

NHS England said that A rejoice the NHS’s 70th birthday, the NHS continues to champion innovation. This technology will improve affected person safety and potentially reduce the need for invasive and highly-priced exams.

This is the second year at NHS England has run the programmer to identify and fast-track unique innovations into the health service. It said the 15 academic health technological know-how Networks throughout England might not take direct responsibility for accelerating uptake regionally. Sepsis detector among innovations to be ’spread throughout NHS’

National medical lead for innovation at NHS England stated: for new enhancements to flourish and unfold at scale, get right of access to funding is vital. Through shopping for those 4 upgrades centrally NHS England has eliminated the obstacles to the spread of these improvements so patients can advantage faster.

Obesity Impacts Kids Health

As per the recent examination that Pediatrics is the first to show that weight gain may have a negative impact on liver health in children as young as 8 years old. The study found that bigger waist circumference at age 3 raises the likelihood that by age 8, children will have markers for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

In childhood obesity, more children are facing a nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in pediatric weight management practice. It can lead to diabetes and other metabolic conditions, but there is no awareness about obesity in parents as well as young children, It leads to serious liver disease. The disease occurs when too much fat accumulates in the liver and triggers inflammation, causing liver damage.

It generally has no symptoms; progression of the nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can lead to cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver and, in some instances, liver cancer. The scientists measured blood levels of a liver compound called ALT- - That ALT is a marker for liver damage and it occurs in people with nonalcoholic greasy liver illness and different conditions that affect the liver--in children.

By age 8, 23 percent of children in the study had elevated ALT levels. Kids with age between 3 and 8 who are facing obesity problems are more elevated ALT. In that 35 percent of 8-year-old kids with obesity had elevated ALT versus 20 percent of those with normal weight. The best way to recover fatty liver disease is to lose weight, by eating fewer processed foods and getting regular exercise. We require better ways to cure, screen, diagnose, prevent, and treat the disease in childhood itself.
