Do housing tenure and car access predict health because they are simply markers of income or self esteem? A Scottish study. (1/1390)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate relations between health (using a range of measures) and housing tenure or car access; and to test the hypothesis that observed relations between these asset based measures and health are simply because they are markers for income or self esteem. DESIGN: Analysis of data from second wave of data collection of West of Scotland Twenty-07 study, collected in 1991 by face to face interviews conducted by nurse interviewers. SETTING: The Central Clydeside Conurbation, in the West of Scotland. SUBJECTS: 785 people (354 men, 431 women) in their late 30s, and 718 people (358 men, 359 women) in their late 50s, participants in a longitudinal study. MEASURES: General Health Questionnaire scores, respiratory function, waist/hip ratio, number of longstanding illnesses, number of symptoms in the last month, and systolic blood pressure; household income adjusted for household size and composition; Rosenberg self esteem score; housing tenure and care access. RESULTS: On bivariate analysis, all the health measures were significantly associated with housing tenure, and all except waist/hip ratio with car access; all except waist/hip ratio were related to income, and all except systolic blood pressure were related to self esteem. In models controlling for age, sex, and their interaction, neither waist/hip ratio nor systolic blood pressure remained significantly associated with tenure or care access. Significant relations with all the remaining health measures persisted after further controlling for income or self esteem. CONCLUSIONS: Housing tenure and car access may not only be related to health because they are markers for income or psychological traits; they may also have some directly health promoting or damaging effects. More research is needed to establish mechanisms by which they may influence health, and to determine the policy implications of their association with health.  (+info)

Biomarkers for exposure to ambient air pollution--comparison of carcinogen-DNA adduct levels with other exposure markers and markers for oxidative stress. (2/1390)

Human exposure to genotoxic compounds present in ambient air has been studied using selected biomarkers in nonsmoking Danish bus drivers and postal workers. A large interindividual variation in biomarker levels was observed. Significantly higher levels of bulky carcinogen-DNA adducts (75.42 adducts/10(8) nucleotides) and of 2-amino-apidic semialdehyde (AAS) in plasma proteins (56.7 pmol/mg protein) were observed in bus drivers working in the central part of Copenhagen, Denmark. In contrast, significantly higher levels of AAS in hemoglobin (55.8 pmol/mg protein), malondialdehyde in plasma (0. 96 nmol/ml plasma), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-albumin adduct (3.38 fmol/ microg albumin) were observed in the suburban group. The biomarker levels in postal workers were similar to the levels in suburban bus drivers. In the combined group of bus drivers and postal workers, negative correlations were observed between bulky carcinogen-DNA adduct and PAH-albumin levels (p = 0.005), and between DNA adduct and [gamma]-glutamyl semialdehyde (GGS) in hemoglobin (p = 0.11). Highly significant correlations were found between PAH-albumin adducts and AAS in plasma (p = 0.001) and GGS in hemoglobin (p = 0.001). Significant correlations were also observed between urinary 8-oxo-7, 8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine and AAS in plasma (p = 0.001) and PAH-albumin adducts (p = 0.002). The influence of the glutatione S-transferase (GST) M1 deletion on the correlation between the biomarkers was studied in the combined group. A significant negative correlation was only observed between bulky carcinogen-DNA adducts and PAH-albumin adducts (p = 0.02) and between DNA adduct and urinary mutagenic activity (p = 0.02) in the GSTM1 null group, but not in the workers who were homozygotes or heterozygotes for GSTM1. Our results indicate that some of the selected biomarkers can be used to distinguish between high and low exposure to environmental genotoxins.  (+info)

Urban-rural comparisons of drink-driving behaviour among late teens: a preliminary investigation. (3/1390)

A preliminary study was conducted to examine the nature and extent of urban-rural differences in self-reported drinking and driving among youths in Western Australia. A total of 102 youths aged 17, 18 and 19 years were surveyed via a random street sampling technique about their alcohol consumption and drink-driving behaviour. Analyses indicated that urban youths had a significantly higher level of self-reported drink-driving behaviour than their rural counterparts. Males indicated a higher level of self-reported drink-driving behaviour than females. This article also provides a review and summary of youth drink-driving literature with special focus on urban-rural comparisons.  (+info)

Considerations in pharmaceutical conversion: focus on antihistamines. (4/1390)

The practice of pharmaceutical conversion, which encompasses three types of drug interchange (generic, brand, and therapeutic substitution), is increasing in managed care settings. Pharmaceutical conversion has numerous implications for managed care organizations, their healthcare providers, and their customers. Although drug cost may be a driving consideration in pharmaceutical conversion, a number of other considerations are of equal or greater importance in the decision-making process may affect the overall cost of patient care. Among these considerations are clinical, psychosocial, and safety issues; patient adherence; patient satisfaction; and legal implications of pharmaceutical conversion. Patient-centered care must always remain central to decisions about pharmaceutical conversion. This article discusses the issues related to, and implications of, pharmaceutical conversion utilizing the antihistamines class of drugs as the case situation.  (+info)

Simple reaction time, duration of driving and sleep deprivation in young versus old automobile drivers. (5/1390)

Car accidents are one of the major causes of death in modern society and sleepiness is identified as one major risk factor. The purposes of the present study were: (1) to relate the sleep loss and driving time to a performance indicator and (2) to identify risk factors of performance decrement. We investigated 294 drivers (age < 30 years, n = 100; age > or = 30 years, n = 194) who drove into a rest stop area. All were asked to fill out a questionnaire about the drive and previous sleep/wake pattern, and to carry out a 10 min, simple reaction time (RT) test. The level of performance is identified by the 10% slowest RTs. Multiple regression analysis, with the mean of the 10% Slowest RTs as the dependent variable, showed that age, duration of drive, and duration (shortness) of previous breaks were the main predictors. Our study suggests that public awareness may need to be raised with respect excessive length of driving, especially in young drivers.  (+info)

A survey of attitudes and knowledge of geriatricians to driving in elderly patients. (6/1390)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the attitudes of consultant members of the British Geriatrics Society to elderly patients driving motor vehicles. DESIGN: An anonymous postal survey assessing knowledge and attitudes to driving in elderly people. A standardized questionnaire was used and five case histories were offered for interpretation. SETTING: The study was co-ordinated from a teaching hospital. SUBJECTS: The 709 consultant members of the British Geriatrics Society. Four hundred and eighteen responses were obtained, which represents a 59% response rate. RESULTS: 275 Respondents (68%) correctly realised that a person aged 70 had a duty to inform the Driving and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) about their eligibility to drive. The remainder did not. Most (315; 75%) believed that the overall responsibility for informing the DVLA was with the patient. If a patient was incapable of understanding advice on driving because of advanced dementia, 346 (83%) would breach patient confidentiality and inform the authority directly. Where a patient was fully capable of understanding medical advice but ignored it, 72% of geriatricians would have legitimately breached patient confidentiality and informed the DVLA. Most geriatricians (88%) saw their main role as one of providing advice on driving to patients and their families. Enforcing DVLA regulations was not seen as an appropriate function, unless the patient was a danger to themselves or other drivers. CONCLUSIONS: There is a wide variation in knowledge of driving regulations and attitudes to driving in elderly patients. Better education of geriatricians should improve awareness of when elderly drivers can safely continue to drive.  (+info)

The effects of age and alcohol intoxication on simulated driving performance, awareness and self-restraint. (7/1390)

AIMS: To investigate whether, compared with middle-aged men (aged 30-50), older men (age > or =60) (i) perform more poorly on a driving simulator and (ii) are more sensitive to the effects of ethanol in terms of blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and driving performance, but more aware of their driving difficulties, and therefore exercise better driving judgement. METHODS: 14 Healthy middle-aged men (mean age 36 years) were compared with 14 healthy older men (mean age 69 years) on an interactive driving simulator, while sober and while legally intoxicated (BAC >80 mg/dl). RESULTS: Older age was associated with poorer driving performance on the simulator. While sober, older men exhibited more improper braking, slower driving, greater speed variability, fewer appropriate full stops and more crashes, and spent more time executing left turns (across oncoming traffic); all values < or =0.02. BACs > or =80 mg/dl were associated with impaired driving, with more inappropriate braking, fewer appropriate full stops and more time executing left turns (all values > or =0.02) and trends towards more speed variability, more low speed collisions and more wrong turns (values <0.1). However, similar ethanol consumption did not produce higher peak BAC or more driving impairments in older drivers. While there were no differences between age groups in terms of awareness of intoxication or driving difficulties, older men were unwilling to drive while legally intoxicated because of fear of physical injury, whereas middle-aged men were more likely to avoid driving when intoxicated due to fear of legal ramifications. CONCLUSION: While both age and legal intoxication affected driving performance, older men were no more sensitive to ethanol in terms of peak BACs, driving performance or awareness/judgement than middle-aged men.  (+info)

Drinking and driving among US high school seniors, 1984-1997. (8/1390)

OBJECTIVES: This article reports the prevalence of, and trends in, driving after drinking and riding in a car with a driver who has been drinking among American high school seniors, based on data from more than a decade (1984-1997) of annual national surveys. METHODS: Logistic regressions were used to assess the effects of demographic factors (gender, region of country, population density, parental education, and race/ethnicity) and selected "lifestyle" factors (religious commitment, high school grades, truancy, illicit drug use, evenings out per week, and miles driven per week). RESULTS: Rates of adolescent driving after drinking and riding with a driver who had been drinking declined significantly from the mid-1980s to the early or mid-1990s, but the declines have not continued in recent years. Rates of driving or riding after drinking were higher among high school seniors who are male. White, living in the western and northeastern regions of the United States, and living in rural areas. Truancy, number of evenings out, and illicit drug use all related significantly positively with the dependent variables, whereas grade point average and religious commitment had a negative relationship. Miles driven per week related positively to driving after drinking.  (+info)

In the medical field, gasoline is not typically used as a medical treatment or diagnostic tool. Gasoline is a flammable liquid that is primarily used as a fuel for internal combustion engines, such as those found in cars, trucks, and other vehicles. However, gasoline can be a dangerous substance if it is ingested or inhaled in large quantities. Ingesting gasoline can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and even death. Inhaling gasoline fumes can cause dizziness, headaches, and respiratory problems, and can also be fatal if exposure is prolonged or severe. If someone has ingested or inhaled gasoline, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Treatment may involve removing the gasoline from the body, providing supportive care to manage symptoms, and addressing any long-term health effects.

In the medical field, "Vehicle Emissions" generally refers to the harmful gases and particles that are released into the air by vehicles, such as cars, trucks, buses, and motorcycles. These emissions can include carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter, and volatile organic compounds, among other pollutants. Exposure to vehicle emissions can have negative health effects on humans, particularly those with pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular conditions. Long-term exposure to high levels of vehicle emissions can increase the risk of developing respiratory diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema, as well as cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes. In addition to the health effects on humans, vehicle emissions also contribute to air pollution, which can have negative impacts on the environment and climate. For example, air pollution can contribute to the formation of smog, which can reduce visibility and harm crops and other vegetation. It can also contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone, which can harm human health and damage crops and other vegetation.

Eye injuries refer to any damage or trauma that affects the structures of the eye, including the cornea, iris, lens, retina, optic nerve, and surrounding tissues. These injuries can be caused by a variety of factors, including physical trauma, chemical exposure, radiation, or infection. Eye injuries can range from minor to severe and can cause temporary or permanent vision loss, depending on the extent of the damage. Some common types of eye injuries include corneal abrasions, conjunctivitis, chemical burns, foreign body injuries, and retinal detachment. Treatment for eye injuries depends on the severity and type of injury. Minor injuries may be treated with eye drops or ointments, while more severe injuries may require surgery or other medical interventions. It is important to seek medical attention immediately if you suspect that you or someone else has suffered an eye injury to prevent further damage and promote the best possible outcome.

Whiplash injuries are a type of soft tissue injury that occur when the head and neck are suddenly and forcefully moved back and forth, causing damage to the muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the neck. This type of injury is often sustained in car accidents, particularly rear-end collisions, but can also occur in other situations where the head and neck are subjected to sudden acceleration or deceleration. Symptoms of whiplash injuries can include neck pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion, as well as headaches, dizziness, and shoulder pain. In some cases, whiplash injuries can also cause long-term problems, such as chronic pain and reduced mobility. Diagnosis of whiplash injuries typically involves a physical examination and imaging tests, such as X-rays or MRI scans. Treatment options may include pain medication, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery. It is important to seek medical attention promptly if you suspect you may have sustained a whiplash injury, as early treatment can help prevent long-term complications.

Occupational diseases are illnesses or injuries that are caused by exposure to hazards or conditions in the workplace. These hazards or conditions can include chemicals, dusts, fumes, radiation, noise, vibration, and physical demands such as repetitive motions or awkward postures. Occupational diseases can affect various systems in the body, including the respiratory system, skin, eyes, ears, cardiovascular system, and nervous system. Examples of occupational diseases include asbestosis, silicosis, coal workers' pneumoconiosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and hearing loss. Occupational diseases are preventable through proper safety measures and regulations in the workplace. Employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthy work environment for their employees, and workers have the right to report hazards and seek medical attention if they experience any symptoms related to their work.

In the medical field, "wounds and injuries" refer to any type of damage or harm that is inflicted on the body, typically as a result of an external force or trauma. This can include cuts, scrapes, bruises, burns, fractures, and other types of physical trauma. Wounds can be classified based on their depth and severity. Superficial wounds only penetrate the outer layer of skin (epidermis) and are typically easy to treat. Deeper wounds, such as lacerations or punctures, can penetrate the dermis or subcutaneous tissue and may require more extensive medical attention. Injuries can also be classified based on their cause. For example, a fall may result in both a wound (such as a cut or bruise) and an injury (such as a broken bone or concussion). Injuries can be further classified based on their location, severity, and potential long-term effects. The treatment of wounds and injuries typically involves cleaning and dressing the affected area, administering pain medication if necessary, and monitoring for signs of infection or other complications. In some cases, more extensive medical treatment may be required, such as surgery or physical therapy.

Wounds, Nonpenetrating, also known as superficial wounds, are injuries to the skin and underlying tissues that do not penetrate through to the other side of the skin. These types of wounds can be caused by a variety of factors, including cuts, scrapes, burns, and bruises. Nonpenetrating wounds are typically less severe than penetrating wounds, which can damage underlying structures such as bones, muscles, and organs. Treatment for nonpenetrating wounds typically involves cleaning the wound, applying dressings, and monitoring for signs of infection. In some cases, antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent or treat infection.

Acrolein is a colorless gas with a pungent, irritating odor. It is a highly reactive compound that is produced naturally in the environment and is also formed during the incomplete combustion of organic materials, such as tobacco smoke and wood fires. In the medical field, acrolein is known to be a toxic substance that can cause a range of adverse health effects, including irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, as well as damage to the lungs, kidneys, and other organs. It has also been linked to the development of certain types of cancer, including lung cancer and bladder cancer. In addition, acrolein has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties, and it is being studied for its potential use in the treatment of certain medical conditions.

In the medical field, "Polycyclic Hydrocarbons, Aromatic" refers to a group of organic compounds that are composed of multiple fused aromatic rings of carbon atoms. These compounds are commonly found in a variety of environmental sources, including tobacco smoke, diesel exhaust, and certain types of industrial emissions. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are known to be toxic and carcinogenic, meaning they have the potential to cause cancer in humans. They can also cause a range of other health problems, including respiratory issues, skin irritation, and damage to the liver and kidneys. In the medical field, PAHs are often studied as potential environmental pollutants and as potential risk factors for certain types of cancer, such as lung cancer and bladder cancer. They may also be used as markers of exposure to environmental pollutants in epidemiological studies.

Thoracic injuries refer to any damage or trauma that affects the chest and its contents, including the lungs, heart, ribs, and chest wall. These injuries can be caused by a variety of factors, including blunt force trauma, penetration wounds, or sudden changes in air pressure, such as those experienced during a high-impact accident or a sudden decompression event. Thoracic injuries can range from minor to severe and can be life-threatening. Some common types of thoracic injuries include rib fractures, punctured lungs (pneumothorax), collapsed lungs (pneumomediastinum), and traumatic hemothorax (bleeding in the chest cavity). In severe cases, thoracic injuries can lead to respiratory failure, cardiac tamponade, or other complications that can be fatal if not treated promptly and effectively. Diagnosis of thoracic injuries typically involves a combination of physical examination, imaging studies (such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI), and laboratory tests. Treatment depends on the severity and type of injury, and may include medications, oxygen therapy, chest tube insertion, surgery, or other interventions.

In the medical field, polycyclic compounds are organic compounds that consist of two or more fused aromatic rings. These compounds are often found in nature and are known for their complex structures and diverse biological activities. Polycyclic compounds can be classified into several categories based on their structure, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heterocyclic compounds, and fused-ring systems. PAHs are compounds that contain multiple aromatic rings, typically with a carbon skeleton, and are known for their carcinogenic properties. Heterocyclic compounds contain at least one heteroatom (such as nitrogen, oxygen, or sulfur) in addition to carbon, and are often used as pharmaceuticals or as intermediates in the synthesis of other drugs. Fused-ring systems are compounds that consist of two or more rings that are fused together, and are often used as dyes or pigments. Polycyclic compounds can have a wide range of biological activities, including anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-microbial properties. They are also used in the development of new drugs and as research tools to study the mechanisms of various diseases. However, some polycyclic compounds can be toxic or carcinogenic, and their use must be carefully monitored to minimize potential risks.

In the medical field, aerosols refer to tiny particles or droplets of liquid or solid matter that are suspended in the air and can be inhaled into the respiratory system. Aerosols can be generated by various sources, including human activities such as talking, coughing, and sneezing, as well as natural phenomena such as volcanic eruptions and dust storms. Aerosols can contain a variety of substances, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, pollutants, and other particles. When inhaled, these particles can enter the lungs and potentially cause respiratory infections, allergies, and other health problems. In the context of infectious diseases, aerosols are of particular concern because they can transmit pathogens over long distances and remain suspended in the air for extended periods of time. To prevent the spread of infectious diseases, it is important to take measures to reduce the generation and dispersion of aerosols in indoor environments, such as wearing masks, practicing good respiratory hygiene, and improving ventilation systems.

In the medical field, "lead" can refer to several different things, including: 1. Lead poisoning: A condition caused by exposure to high levels of lead, which can damage the brain, kidneys, and other organs. Lead poisoning can occur through ingestion of lead-contaminated food or water, inhalation of lead dust or fumes, or absorption through the skin. 2. Lead shield: A protective covering made of lead or lead alloy used to shield patients and medical personnel from ionizing radiation during medical imaging procedures such as X-rays or CT scans. 3. Lead apron: A protective garment worn by medical personnel during procedures involving ionizing radiation to shield the body from exposure to harmful levels of radiation. 4. Lead acetate: A medication used to treat lead poisoning by binding to lead ions in the body and preventing them from being absorbed into the bloodstream. 5. Lead poisoning test: A medical test used to diagnose lead poisoning by measuring the level of lead in the blood or urine.
