By Duke Medicine News and Communications DURHAM, N.C. – New guidelines for using statins to treat high cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular disease are projected to result in 12.8 million more U.S. adults taking the drugs, according to a research team led by Duke Medicine scientists.

Primary care providers often are asked to perform the preparticipation physical exam and cardiac screening of pediatric athletes. It can be challenging to evaluate which athletes may require further cardiac evaluation and specialist referral based on a focused history and physical. There is considerable controversy surrounding mass electrocardiogram ECG screening of athletes in the United States. The ECG is one of several diagnostic tests used by pediatric cardiologists in the evaluation of underlying heart disease in young athletes. This article reviews cardiac conditions associated with sudden death, discusses pertinent findings on history and physical, and provides clinically relevant information for practitioners ...

New guidelines for heart treatment. Aspirin has commonly been used to treat heart rhythm disorder atrial fibrillation. Doctors should prescribe newer medications rather than using the "smokescreen" of aspirin to treat a common heart condition, guidance released today advises. Aspirin had commonly been used to treat atrial fibrillation AF, a heart rhythm disorder, which affects 1.5% of the population. The latest research from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence Nice advises doctors not to prescribe it to AF patients but to use instead anticoagulant drugs which prevent blood clots forming. It is thought around 200,000 patients in England are currently on aspirin for their AF. Dr Campbell Cowan, chair of the Guideline Development Group, said: "Aspirin has been a little bit of a smokescreen to ...

Wes: Cholesterol Guidelines - Evidence Based. Cholesterol Guidelines - Evidence Based. Drs J Abrahmson and JM Wright published an interesting article in The Lancet on their evaluation of guidelines for the treatment of hyperlipidemia: For adults aged between 30 and 80 years old who already have occlusive vascular disease, statins confer a total and cardiovascular mortality benefit and are not controversial. In formulating recommendations for primary prevention, why do authors of guidelines not rely on the data that already exist from the primary prevention trials. The authors argue that current guidelines are an extrapolation of secondary prevention trials, or data combined from secondary and primary prevention trials, and not based on randomized trials of just primary prevention in the hyperlipidemia literature. To establish a basis for their concerns, they performed a retrospective analysis of the data from primary prevention trials which they admit were not perfect ...

Don’t expect your doctor to get out the prescription pad next time you take your child or grandchild in for an ear infection or cough. Find out why. The American Academy of Pediatrics has. just released new guidelines for prescribing antibiotics when treating common childhood illnesses. These new guidelines encourage doctors to take a “wait and see” approach when they see children with ear infections, a runny nose or coughing. In keeping with these updated guidelines, doctors should choose an antibiotic that treats the specific bacteria causing the illness, only if symptoms persist or become severe. The academy warns that bacteria are getting stronger and more resistant to antibiotics because they are over prescribed. For more information on these new guidelines, click here, or click here.

ASC's guidelines are revised approximately every 5 years by a national panel of experts in cancer research, prevention, epidemiology, public health, and policy. They reflect the most current scientific evidence related to dietary and activity patterns and cancer risk. The guidelines focus on recommendations for individual choices regarding diet and physical activity ...

May 3, 2012 New guidelines deliver concise messages for implementing cardiovascular prevention May 3, 2012 The latest cardiovascular disease CVD prevention guidelines have been overhauled to produce a user friendly document with concise messages that awards greater weight than ever before to evidence from clinical trials and observational population studies. The "European Guidelines on Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Clinical Practice version 2012 " were launched at the EuroPRevent2012 meeting in Dublin, Ireland. For the first time the guidelines were launched at the EuroPRevent2012 meeting, held 3 to 5 May 2012, and published simultaneously in the European Heart Journal and European Journal of Preventive Cardiology. Evidence that CVD is caused by modifiable risk factors and preventable comes from clinical trials and observational community studies. Greater emphasis placed on population studies In a radical departure the Task Force have for the first time introduced the ...

Patients with diabetes are more likely to be visually impaired than those who do not have the disease. However, few studies have examined whether visual impairments in patients with diabetes can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses. To estimate the proportion of patients with diabetes who could benefit from such treatments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC published data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Study in the November 3, 2006, issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Overall, the results suggested that 11 percent of American adults 20 years and older with self-reported diabetes had visual impairments, 65.5 percent of which were correctable. adults with diabetes had mild ...

New guidelines on obesity herald changes in coverage July 11, 2012 By Michelle Andrews, Kaiser Health News. For the millions of people who struggle to lose weight, the new guidelines offer much-needed support. It's unclear whether employers and insurers will welcome the change, though. Under the 2010 health-care law, new health plans and those whose benefits change enough to lose their grandfathered status must provide services recommended by the Preventive Services Task Force at no cost to members. For the 70 percent of employers that already offer weight management programs, that may mean just supplementing what they already offer, says Russell Robbins, a senior clinical consultant at Mercer, a human resources consulting firm. According to the task force, effective weight-loss programs involve 12 to 26 group or individual sessions ...

(1/2665) Urinary lithium: distribution shape, reference values, and evaluation of exposure by inductively coupled plasma argon-emission spectrometry.

Inductively coupled plasma argon-emission spectrometry (ICPAES) was used to evaluate the lithium content of undiluted urine samples. The method can be performed with 1 mL of urine in a single tube using a routine ICPAES analysis for rapid and convenient assessment of lithium exposure in humans. Urine samples obtained from male workers (n = 86) who had not been exposed to lithium were used for the determination of this element by ICPAES. The obtained concentrations were corrected using a specific gravity of 1.024. The particular frequency distribution resulted in a log-normal distribution diagram for anatomical spread. Geometric mean value for urinary lithium in the nonexposed male workers was 23.5 microg/L, and the confidence interval from a log-normal distribution was 11.0 to 50.5 microg/L. Taking into consideration a short biological half-life and the massive urine excretion of lithium, urinary lithium was considered to be a useful index for monitoring of exposure. Calibration curves obtained for lithium standards had good sensitivity and linearity. Good reproducibility was assessed by lithium addition to urine samples. It was concluded that the obtained lithium reference values would be useful for the early diagnosis of lithium intoxication or in the assessment of the degree of exposure to lithium in subjects at risk.  (+info)

(2/2665) Bioterrorism alleging use of anthrax and interim guidelines for management--United States, 1998.

From October 30 through December 23, 1998, CDC received reports of a series of bioterroristic threats of anthrax exposure. Letters alleged to contain anthrax were sent to health clinics on October 30, 1998, in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. During December 17-23 in California, a letter alleged to contain anthrax was sent to a private business, and three telephone threats of anthrax contamination of ventilation systems were made to private and public buildings. All threats were hoaxes and are under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and local law enforcement officials. The public health implications of these threats were investigated to assist in developing national public health guidelines for responding to bioterrorism. This report summarizes the findings of these investigations and provides interim guidance for public health authorities on bioterrorism related to anthrax.  (+info)

(3/2665) Preclinical safety evaluation of human gene therapy products.

Human gene therapy products include naked DNA and viral as well as non-viral vectors containing nucleic acids. There is limited experience on the preclinical toxicity studies necessary for the safety evaluation of these products, which have been outlined in several recently released guidelines. Requirements for the preclinical safety evaluation of human gene therapy products are both specific and non-specific. All key preclinical studies should be performed in compliance with Good Laboratory Practices. Non-specific requirements are in fact common to all pharmaceutical products. Critical specific issues to be addressed are: the safety evaluation of the vector and the toxicity of the expressed protein(s), which are the two components of gene therapy products, the quality of the test article, the selection of animal species, and the verification that the administration method successfully transports the gene of interest, with the vector, to the target site(s). The treatment schedule should mimic the intended human therapeutic design. The host's immune response against the gene therapy product has to be evaluated to detect possible adverse effects and immune neutralization by antibodies. The biodistribution of the gene of interest is also essential and can be evaluated by molecular biology techniques, such as PCR. Specific confinement is required for the safe manipulation of viral vectors.  (+info)

(4/2665) Gender-specific differences in dialysis quality (Kt/V): 'big men' are at risk of inadequate haemodialysis treatment.

BACKGROUND: Inadequate dialysis dose is closely related to mortality and morbidity of maintenance haemodialysis (MHD) patients. According to the DOQI guidelines a minimum prescribed dialysis dose of single-pool Kt/V (Kt/Vsp)=1.3, equivalent to equilibrated double pool Kt/V (e-Kt/Vdp)=1.1, is recommended. Knowledge of patient-related risk factors for inadequate delivery of hacmodialysis would be helpful to select patient subgroups for intensive control ofdialysis adequacy. METHODS: A retrospective survey was conducted to assess the prevalence of inadequate dialysis dose according to DOQI criteria during a 7-month period. A total of 320 e-Kt/Vdp measurements in 62 MHD patients were evaluated (mean effective dialysis time 222+/-32 min). Residual renal function (RRF) was expressed as renal weekly Kt/V (r-Kt/Vweek) and included into assessment of total weekly renal and dialytic Kt/V (t-Kt/Vweek). RESULTS: Inadequacy (e-Kt/Vdp<1.10) was prevalent in 37.2% of all measurements and in 22/62 patients (35.5%). In 54% of underdialysed patients r-Kt/Vweek compensated for insufficient dialytic urea removal. Mean weekly Kt/V was inadequate (t-Kt/Vweek<3.30) in 12/62 patients (19.4%) of whom 91.7% (11/12) were male. Body-weight, urea distribution volume (UDV). and body-surface area (BSA) were significantly higher in inadequately is adequately dialysed males. UDV>42.0 litres or BSA>2.0 m2 and a lack of RRF (r-Kt/Vweek<0.3) put 'big men' at increased risk to receive an inadequate dose of dialysis. CONCLUSION: Our data identify patients at risk for inadequate haemodialysis treatment. Special attention should be focused on 'big men' with UDV>42.0 litres or BSA>2.0 m2. In this subset of patients frequent measurements of t-Kt/Vweek and assessment of RRF should be mandatory.  (+info)

(5/2665) Selecting subjects for participation in clinical research: one sphere of justice.

Recent guidelines from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) mandate the inclusion of adequate numbers of women in clinical trials. Ought such standards to apply internationally? Walzer's theory of justice is brought to bear on the problem, the first use of the theory in research ethics, and it argues for broad application of the principle of adequate representation. A number of practical conclusions for research ethics committees (RECs) are outlined. Eligibility criteria in clinical trials ought to be justified by trial designers. Research ethics committees ought to question criteria that seem to exclude unnecessarily women from research participation. The issue of adequate representation should be construed broadly, so as to include consideration of the representation of the elderly, persons with HIV, mental illness and substance abuse disorders in clinical research.  (+info)

(6/2665) Explicit guidelines for qualitative research: a step in the right direction, a defence of the 'soft' option, or a form of sociological imperialism?

Within the context of health service research, qualitative research has sometimes been seen as a 'soft' approach, lacking scientific rigour. In order to promote the legitimacy of using qualitative methodology in this field, numerous social scientists have produced checklists, guidelines or manuals for researchers to follow when conducting and writing up qualitative work. However, those working in the health service should be aware that social scientists are not all in agreement about the way in which qualitative work should be conducted, and they should not be discouraged from conducting qualitative research simply because they do not possess certain technical skills or extensive training in sociology, anthropology or psychology. The proliferation of guidelines and checklists may be off-putting to people who want to undertake this sort of research, and they may also make it even more difficult for researchers to publish work in medical journals. Consequently, the very people who may be in a position to change medical practice may never read the results of important qualitative research.  (+info)

(8/2665) Safe working practices and HIV infection: knowledge, attitudes, perception of risk, and policy in hospital.

OBJECTIVES--To assess the knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of risk of occupational HIV transmission in hospital in relation to existing guidelines. DESIGN--Cross sectional anonymous questionnaire survey of all occupational groups. SETTING--One large inner city teaching hospital. SUBJECTS--All 1530 staff working in the hospital in October 1991 and 22 managers. MAIN MEASURES--Knowledge of safe working practices and hospital guidelines; attitudes towards patients with AIDS; perception of risk of occupational transmission of HIV; availability of guidelines. RESULTS--The response rate in the questionnaire survey was 63% (958/1530). Although staff across all occupational groups knew of the potential risk of infection from needlestick injury (98%, 904/922), significantly more non-clinical staff (ambulance, catering, and domestic staff) than clinical staff (doctors, nurses, and paramedics) thought HIV could be transmitted by giving blood (38%, 153/404 v 12%, 40/346; chi 2 = 66.1 p < 0.001); one in ten clinical staff believed this. Except for midwives, half of staff in most occupational groups and 19% (17/91) of doctors and 22% (28/125) of nurses thought gloves should be worn in all contacts with people with AIDS. Most staff (62%, 593/958), including 38% (36/94) of doctors and 52% (67/128) of nurses thought patients should be routinely tested on admission, 17% of doctors and 19% of nurses thought they should be isolated in hospital. One in three staff perceived themselves at risk of HIV. Midwives, nurses, and theatre technicians were most aware of guidelines for safe working compared with only half of doctors, ambulance, and paramedical staff and no incinerator staff. CONCLUSIONS--Policy guidelines for safe working practices for patients with HIV infection and AIDS need to be disseminated across all occupational groups to reduce negative staff attitudes, improve knowledge of occupational transmission, establish an appropriate perception of risk, and create a supportive and caring hospital environment for people with HIV. IMPLICATIONS--Managers need to disseminate policy guidelines and information to all staff on an ongoing basis.  (+info)

Persuasive Essay Topic HELP?


  • I have to write a persuasive essay for my grade 12 English class but can't decide on a topic, I have a few in mind, so please ether pick one of my ideas or try and give me your own. PLEASE NOTHING ABOUT ABORTIONS OR GENERIC THINGS LIKE THAT. 1. Does plastic surgery help you or ruin you? 2. Why atheists have to be tolerant to religion, while religious people are not tolerant to atheists? 3. Vegetarians vs. Meateaters 4. Prove that blondes are actually smart. 5. What do you think about gay marriages? Thanks.
  • Don't do topic number four. It is a very weak topic about stereotypes which is suited for a 10th grade (At max.) essay. The other four are good topics to pick but personally number two would be hard to get good, solid examples for. One is a little simple for a 12th grade essay. So of your topics I think three and five are both excellent choices. 3. You could do how each choice affects human health, how the animals are treated and slaughtered, (and if it is humane), and how it effects the environment. 5. How love is love, discrimination, that while you do not need to get married in a church you could still have some type of ceremony (or how any ceremony is insulting to the church), this could bring up human rights and the separation of church and state. Suggestions: 1. Animal testing-Is it worth it? 2. Drinking-Should the drinking age be lowered to 18? 3. Universal Heathcare-Is it good to raise taxes to support the unfortunate (This pertains more if you are American) 4. Death penalty- Should it be abolished? 5. Dropping Out- Should the age be raised? Should drop outs be required to complete some type of further education? (I.e. vocational/Tech school) Pick something that makes you feel something strong. For example if the idea of eating meat makes you barf, pick that. Anything that makes you feel passionate will be easier to talk about. (And don't forget you must write one paragraph about the other side!)


The most controversial topics?


  • I'm just looking for a discussion here. Not really looking for anyone to get nasty just posting an outlet for people to share there opinions. What do you all think about the following topics... Breastfeeding/bottle-feeding circumcision co-sleeping SAHM/working mothers spanking (not babies of course) the cry it out method Do you agree/disagree and to what extent do you take to these things? Meaning when you see someone that doesn't agree with you do you think "to each their own" or "this person is a horrible parent"?
  • When it comes to all these topics, I have my opinion on them, but how others choose to raise their kids is their business and I will never attack someone for making the decisions they do. I get very angry however when others feel the need to attack someone who doesnt do things the way they do or think they are far superior parents for making the choices they do. Being judgemental parents often leads to raising judgemental children and I would rather have a formula fed baby or a circumcised son then a judgemental child who grows up into a judgemental adult...not good. Now as for as my opinion on each Breastfeeding/bottle-feeding: whatever works for the mother and baby is what I feel is best. I bottle feed but I do not look down on those who breastfeed, I do not make comments to those breastfeeding in public and I expect the same respect when I am bottle feeding my child. Circumcision: again, whatever works. I would personally circumcise my son, but I dont think its necessary. My husband is circumcised and so I would want my son done as well. co-sleeping: I would never co-sleep as it is not safe for use to do so however as long as parents are doing it as safely as possible then I dont see a problem with it. I just hate listening to some parents whine that their child wont sleep in their own bed after having co-slept for a lengthy period of time. To me thats something they should expect and read up on how to deal with it before making the decision to co-sleep SAHM/working moms: if you can afford to be a SAHM the thats awesome...who better to raise their kids then the parents...but this isnt possible for all families and as long as proper child care is arranged and the parents spend as much of their "free time" with their kids as possible then there is nothing wrong with working moms. I will eventually need to go back to work, but I am spending the first year home with my daughter Spanking: this I dont agree with because parents are always teaching their kids its not ok to hit yet spanking is hitting your child. It sends a mixed message and isnt necessary. CIO: not something I would do, but if it works for the family and the child is not being neglected then who am I to judge their methods. I personally think mothers need to spend more time supporting eachother then criticizing eachothers methods. It often makes me laugh when some women go all out on here bashing formula feeding and whatever else. To me they bash other moms to make themselves feel better about their parenting skills that they are questioning.


WIC income guidelines: Before or after taxes? AND, is the boyfriends income included?


  • Sister just had twins (2 weeks ago).She is too stubborn and proud to check in on any info on this topic. My question is the yearly & monthly income guidelines, is that before or after taxes are taken out? Is the boyfriend income included as well? He doesn't make much (neither does she), he pays about $800 a month in child support to his exwife (who doesn't work and neither does her boyfriend but completely different topic!) Was just lowered from $1000 a month (state of MO. can only lower 20%). After taxes child support and the insurance he carries for the twins and 2 previous children he only brings home about $250 every 2 weeks (when no overtime is given). I'm just worried about my sister and her new babies, I haven't been through this so I don't know how to help her. She has her master's in business but, has to stay with the low paying job that she has now for another 8 months due to a contract that she signed saying they would pay for school if she stayed for a year after graduation
  • WIC Income Eligibility Guidelines 2008-2009 On April 8, 2008, a Notice announcing revised WIC Income Eligibility Guidelines was published in the Federal Register. The adjusted income eligibility guidelines are used by State agencies in determining the income eligibility of persons applying to participate in the WIC Program. WIC State agencies must implement the new guidelines on July 1, 2008. However, WIC State agencies may implement the revised income guidelines at the same time States implement revised income eligibility guidelines for the Medicaid Program. On January 23, 2008, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published its annual update of the poverty guidelines. The HHS guidelines are used by a number of Federal programs, including WIC and the Medicaid Program, as the basis for determining and updating program income eligibility limits. To be eligible on the basis of income, applicants' gross income (i.e. before taxes are withheld) must fall at or below 185 percent of the U.S. Poverty Income Guidelines. The guidelines for WIC are shown below. Click here if you are looking for WIC income eligibility guidelines for July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2008.

What are some good gothic stores?


  • Does anyone know of some good gothic stores besides hot topic?
  • HOT TOPIC hellloooo! and Spencers


hot topic....for punks?


  • is hot topic rly for goths only? cuz rite now i think tht other ppl are shopping there cuz of twilight. i personally dont think preps should be shopping there. but thts just my opinion. also im not even rly punk or w/e. i still wear hollister. i just like hot topics shirts, makeup, belts, bags, jeans, and twilight stuff. i just wanna know if u think hot topic is a store JUST for punks. or if other ppl can n go in there.
  • oh my f***ing god to that first answer. hot topic isn't scary. get over yourself. hot topic is in NO way a store only for punks. however, "punk" people generally find the stuff that hot topic sells appealing. i personally hate it when i see a preppy twilight fan go in there only to buy twilight stuff and then skip right out like "YESS. i shopped at hot topic and didn't get shot or approached with drugs!" don't get me wrong, i'm a twilight fan, but that just sort of bugs me haha. posers. other people should go in there if they can find stuff in there that they enjoy. like the cds or band shirts or makeup or w/e. people that go in there with scared expressions on their face like that jonas brother lover who answered first need to gtfo immediately. sorry, that's my opinion. they shouldn't judge the store.


Hot topic and goths???


  • I am just wondering who here reading this thinks that goths are nicer than preps? In my opinion, goth people can be a lot more nicer than people in abercrombie or aeropostale, for example. Who here agrees with my opinion? P.S: Hot Topic is not only a goth store- it is a MUSIC store. Also, it is a store with television brands. They have stuff from hello kitty and foster's home for imaginary friends in there! ANother P:S- My favorite is Invader ZIM and GIR! :D
  • Goths and preps aren't really different from each other, they just dress differently and have different interests, I guess. They are all still annoying people with annoying problems. Anyhoo, adding to your observation, the people at Hot Topic are some of the nicest, most helpful workers I have seen in the mall. They always help me find music and give me great recommendations. Abercrombie just scares me, it's even darker than Hot Topic! Goths aren't nicer as I whole, it just really depends on who you talk to. There are nasty and nice people on both sides. I just get along with the people at HT better because I feel more comfortable with them. Those sales clerks can smell fear, and when they smell fear, they like to prey on poor innocent customers, I swear! Maybe that is happening to you at Abercrombie and Aeropostale. And you are right, they sell music, graphic tees, and accessories, not just "goth" attire. I practically live at Hot Topic, it is a heaven to shoppers like me. Their products are really unique and fun, they never bore me! And the atmosphere at Hot Topic is really nice as well, I love the dark cave feeling it gives. HT is awesome. -SK <3

Its with a women's health service clinic and the lady told me that I would be paying for the visit according to my income. Does anyone know of a way to find this income guideline chart online somewhere? Thanks in advance.
