Lead and hypertension in a sample of middle-aged women. (1/1108)

OBJECTIVES: The role of lead exposure as a risk factor for hypertension is less well defined among women than among men. This case-control study assessed the relation of blood and bone lead concentrations to hypertension in women. METHODS: Cases and controls were a subsample of women from the Nurses' Health Study. Hypertension was defined as a physician diagnosis of hypertension between 1988 and 1994 or measured systolic blood pressure > or = 140 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure > or = 90 mm Hg. RESULTS: Mean (SD) blood lead concentration was 0.15 (0.11) mumol/L; mean tibia and patella lead concentrations by K-x-ray fluorescence were 13.3 (9.0) and 17.3 (11.1) micrograms/g, respectively. After adjustment for potentially confounding factors, an increase from the 10th to the 90th percentile of patella lead values (25 micrograms/g) was associated with approximately 2-fold (95% confidence interval = 1.1, 3.2) increased risk of hypertension. There was no association between hypertension and either blood or tibia lead concentrations. CONCLUSIONS: These findings support a potentially important role for low-level lead exposure as a risk factor for hypertension among non-occupationally exposed women.  (+info)

Continuous quality improvement decreases length of stay and adverse events: a case study in an interventional cardiology program. (2/1108)

A study was performed to assess the effectiveness of continuous quality improvement in achieving a better quality of care for patients undergoing coronary interventions. Increasing utilization of new coronary interventional devices has incurred a higher incidence of complications, prolonged hospital stay, and related costs. Using a clinical information system, we adopted continuous quality improvement to control the incidence of complications and postprocedural length of stay. Multiple regression analysis and a matched case-control study were performed to detect complications related to postprocedural length of stay and their causes among 342 patients. The results led to the modification of the postprocedural heparin anticoagulation protocol, which was followed by the introduction of a ticlopidine-based poststent anticoagulation regimen. Two sequential groups of patients (n = 261, n = 266) were selected to compare postprocedural length of stay and frequency of complications with those for the first group. Adjustments were made for patients and procedural characteristics through stratification and multiple regression methods. Blood transfusion was the most important predictor of prolonged hospital stay (partial R2 = 0.26, P < 0.01). A high level of postprocedural anticoagulation and intracoronary stent use were significantly associated with blood transfusion (P = 0.01, P = 0.02, respectively). The comparison among the three groups showed that heparin protocol change reduced only postprocedural length of stay (P < 0.001) for patients without stents, whereas the stent change in anticoagulation protocol significantly reduced both transfusion and hospital stay for patients with stents (P < 0.001, P < 0.05, respectively). Continuous quality improvement based on clinical information is promising to control both complications and hospital costs. Physician involvement is necessary throughout the process.  (+info)

A community-wide infant mortality review: findings and implications. (3/1108)

The authors present the results of a community-wide infant mortality review, describe implications for the delivery of maternal and child health services, and discuss the value of such reviews in addressing local public health concerns. The review included an analysis of birth and death certificates and medical record data; maternal interviews; review of cases and development of recommendations by provider panels; and convening of community groups to develop strategies to improve the health and health care of women and infants. The review focused on 287 infant deaths during 1990-1993. More than half of all neonatal deaths were attributable to "previable" or "borderline viable" births. Sexually transmitted infections were the most frequently identified underlying risk, and smoking was the most frequently identified prenatal risk. Homelessness, physical and sexual abuse, and alcohol use were at least twice as likely among women whose babies died than among a high risk comparison group. Panelists identified fragmented health care over the course of women's reproductive lives as a predominant theme. The authors conclude that: (a) The focus of maternal and child health care should shift to a model of women's health care that addresses the chronicity of social and clinical risks. (b) Infant mortality reviews are a valuable tool for community education, systems review, and policy development and can be applied to other public health issues with local significance. (c) Expectations about the review process's ability to produce conclusions about causality or recommendations narrowly geared to reducing infant mortality rates need to be reframed. (d) The model will be strengthened by greater participation of families affected by infant death.  (+info)

Discontinuity of care: urgent care utilization within a health maintenance organization. (4/1108)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the demographic characteristics, attitudes, and perceived barriers to primary care reported by patients seen in the urgent care department of a health maintenance organization (HMO) health center. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients aged 18 years or older who sought care at the urgent care department of a large, urban health center of a staff-model HMO were eligible for the study. Patients were handed a survey as they registered in the urgent care department. Demographic and visit diagnoses data were obtained through review of the computerized medical record. RESULTS: Patients seeking treatment at the urgent care department were significantly younger than those seen at a primary care physician's office (mean age, 40 years versus 46 years; P < or = 0.0001) but otherwise had similar demographic characteristics. Nearly 90% of 421 patients seen in the urgent care department reported having a primary care physician. When asked to list the reasons why they came to the urgent care department instead of the primary care offices, 64% said they needed to be seen immediately, 47% came because the primary care offices were closed, 27% cited the constraints of work or childcare, and 25% said they were unable to get an appointment with their primary care physician. Almost half of patients (47%) said they would have preferred to see their primary care physician within a day or two rather than seeking care at the urgent care department. CONCLUSIONS: Patients treated in the urgent care department reported various barriers to seeing their primary care physician. Improving same-day access to primary care providers will help alleviate this problem and may increase patient satisfaction.  (+info)

Prevalence, predictors, and consequences of late nephrology referral at a tertiary care center. (5/1108)

Despite improvements in dialysis care, mortality of patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) remains high. One factor that has thus far received little attention, but might contribute to morbidity and mortality, is the timing of referral to the nephrologist. This study examines the hypothesis that late referral of patients to the nephrologist might lead to suboptimal pre-ESRD care. Clinical and laboratory data were obtained from the patient records and electronic databases of New England Medical Center, its affiliated dialysis unit (Dialysis Clinics, Inc., Boston), and the office records of the outpatient nephrology clinic. Early (ER) and late (LR) referral were defined by the time of first nephrology encounter greater than or less than 4 mo, respectively, before initiation of dialysis. Multivariate models were built to explore factors associated with LR, and whether LR is associated with hypoalbuminemia or late initiation of dialysis. Of the 135 patients, 30 (22%) were referred late. There were no differences in age, gender, race, and cause of ESRD between ER and LR patients. However, there were significant differences in insurance coverage between these two groups. In the multivariate analysis, patients covered by health maintenance organizations were more likely to be referred late (odds ratio = 4.5) than patients covered by Medicare. Compared to ER, LR patients were more likely to have hypoalbuminemia (56% versus 80%), hematocrit <28% (33% versus 55%), and predicted GFR <5 ml/min per 1.73 m2 (17% versus 40%) at the start of dialysis, and less likely to have received erythropoietin (40% versus 17%) or have a functioning permanent vascular access for the first hemodialysis (40% versus 4%). It is concluded that late referral to the nephrologist is common in the United States and is associated with poor pre-ESRD care. Pre-ESRD care of patients treated by nephrologists was also less than ideal. The patient-, physician-, and system-related factors behind this observation are unclear. Meanwhile, pre-ESRD educational efforts need to target patients, generalists, and nephrologists.  (+info)

Comparing pediatric intentional injury surveillance data with data from publicly available sources: consequences for a public health response to violence. (6/1108)

OBJECTIVE: A hospital based intentional injury surveillance system for youth (aged 3-18) was compared with other publicly available sources of information on youth violence. The comparison addressed whether locally conducted surveillance provides data that are sufficiently more complete, detailed, and timely that clinicians and public health practitioners interested in youth violence prevention would find surveillance worth conducting. SETTING: The Boston Emergency Department Surveillance (BEDS) project was conducted at Boston Medical Center and the Children's Hospital, Boston. METHOD: MEDLINE and other databases were searched for data sources that report separate data for youth and data on intentional injury. Sources that met these criteria (one national and three local) were then compared with BEDS data. Comparisons were made in the following categories: age, gender, victim-offender relationship, injury circumstance, geographic location, weapon rates, and violent injury rates. RESULTS: Of 14 sources dealing with violence, only four met inclusion criteria. Each source provided useful breakdowns for age and gender; however, only the BEDS data were able to demonstrate that 32.6% of intentional injuries occurred among youth aged 12 and under. Comparison data sources provided less detail regarding the victim-offender relationship, injury circumstance, and weapon use. Comparison of violent injury rates showed the difficulties for practitioners estimating intentional injury from sources based on arrest data, crime victim data, or weapon related injury. CONCLUSIONS: Comparison suggests that surveillance is more complete, detailed, and timely than publicly available sources of data. Clinicians and public health practitioners should consider developing similar systems.  (+info)

Association between iron deficiency and low-level lead poisoning in an urban primary care clinic. (7/1108)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to examine the association between iron deficiency and low-level lead poisoning. METHODS: Data were collected in an urban primary care clinic from 3650 children aged 9 to 48 months. Iron deficiency was defined as a red cell mean corpuscular volume (MCV) of less than 70 fL and a red cell distribution width (RDW) of more than 14.5 in children younger than 2 years, and an MCV of less than 73 fL and RDW of more than 14.5 in those 2 years or older. RESULTS: After adjustment for age, hemoglobin concentration, and insurance status, the odds ratios for iron deficiency predicting blood lead levels greater than or equal to 5 micrograms/dL and greater than or equal to 10 micrograms/dL were 1.63 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.29, 2.04) and 1.44 (95% CI = 1.004, 2.05). CONCLUSIONS: Iron deficiency is significantly associated with low-level lead poisoning in children aged 9 to 48 months.  (+info)

Maternal pregnancy hormone levels in an area with a high incidence (Boston, USA) and in an area with a low incidence (Shanghai, China) of breast cancer. (8/1108)

Characteristics probably associated with the fetal hormonal milieu have recently been shown to increase (birth size indicators, prematurity, neonatal jaundice) or decrease (pregnancy toxaemia) breast cancer risk in the female offspring. However, it is unknown whether differences in pregnancy hormone levels may contribute to the marked geographical variation in breast cancer incidence. We have compared, in a highly standardized manner, pregnancy hormone levels in a population with high incidence and one with low incidence of breast cancer. Three hundred and four pregnant Caucasian women in Boston and 334 pregnant Chinese women in Shanghai were enrolled from March 1994 to October 1995. Levels of oestradiol, oestriol, prolactin, progesterone, human growth hormone, albumin and sex hormone-binding globulin were measured in maternal blood at weeks 16 and 27 of gestation and compared between the two study sites using non-parametric Wilcoxon's rank-sum test. Demographical, anthropometrical and pregnancy characteristics were ascertained through interview, and relevant variables concerning delivery and the newborn were abstracted from medical records and paediatric charts. During the first visit, median serum levels of all studied hormones were statistically significant, and in most instances substantially, higher among Chinese women, who have a low incidence of breast cancer, compared with American women, who have a high incidence of breast cancer. An analogous pattern was evident during the second visit, although the relative differences tended to be smaller. Further research is needed to identify lifestyle or other exogenous determinants of pregnancy hormone levels, as well as possible mechanisms by which they may influence carcinogenic processes in the breast and possibly other organs.  (+info)

New England Deaconess Hospital was founded In 1896 by Methodist deaconesses to care for Bostons residents.[10] The Methodist Deaconess movement, which started in Germany in 1836, was a group of women dedicating themselves to the care of the sick and the poor. The first 14-bed infirmary was opened in a converted five-story brownstone at 691 Massachusetts Avenue. Although the hospital was originally staffed by the Deaconesses, in 1922 it added a permanent medical and surgical staff. In 1927, the New England Deaconess Association opened the Palmer Memorial Hospital, a cancer treatment facility. During the 1960s, Deaconess residency programs gained accreditation and it affiliated with Harvard Medical School. Deaconess had a leading role in the early studies of the cause, course and treatment of AIDS. Deaconess was also a pioneer in organ transplantation and immunological research. During an era of religious separatism and anti-Semitism, Bostons Jewish community founded Beth Israel Hospital in ...

Boston University Eye Associates glaucoma service provides comprehensive medical and surgical management for glaucoma. Glaucoma is a complicated disease in which damage to the optic nerve results in vision loss. Elevated eye pressure is an important risk factor in the development of glaucoma. In the early stages, glaucoma typically has no obvious symptoms thus it has been called "the silent thief of sight". Therefore early diagnosis and treatment is important, since it can halt or prevent optic nerve damage. Risk factors for glaucoma include: African-American and Asian race, age over 60, family history of glaucoma, steroid use (i.e. for asthma), and eye injury. Other possible risk factors include: extensive blood loss, sleep apnea, raynauds phenomenon, nearsightedness, hypertension, and diabetes.. Glaucoma can only be diagnosed through a routine complete eye exam. Therefore it is important to have your eyes checked regularly. As part of the examination you may also undergo testing of peripheral ...

The study is clever and the finding are intriguing," said Bradley T. Hyman, MD, PhD, the John B. Penney, Jr. professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School and director of the Alzheimers Disease Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Hyman and John H. Growdon, MD, director of the Memory and Movement Disorders Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, wrote an accompanying editorial in JAMA Neurology.. "Weve had evidence that there are already differences by middle-age," Dr. Hyman told Neurology Today in a telephone interview. "When does it start becoming different? Is this a fundamental developmental issue or is it related to Alzheimers? We just dont know.". The brain changes - low metabolic activity in areas hard-hit in AD - in young and middle-aged adults with APOE4 suggested that there is a long prodromal period before the onset of obvious clinical signs. "But this latest study tells us that there is more to it than that," said Dr. Hyman. "APOE4s role in early development ...

Result-oriented innovations In addition to designating innovation units, MGH also made a concerted effort to track the results and quickly identify trends and adapt their protocols on the fly. They developed an evaluation schema in all of their units, collecting data before the innovation units launched, and at specific intervals to measure their successes or failures. They gathered qualitative feedback from focus groups, surveys, observations, and interviews with both patients and staff.. Almost immediately, they saw positive results. More than 95% of patients surveyed felt included as part of the care team, a stated goal of the Innovation Unit. Patients also reported that calls were answered promptly 88% of the time. By the end of the first year, MGH found that units using ARNs saw a 5% decrease in length of stay and a 3% drop in readmissions in the first year. Patient satisfaction scores for these units doubled those from the rest of the hospital.. The staff reported an increase in ...
By Lonnie Powers. Heres an economic statistic that holds true in almost every part of the world: women are significantly more likely to be poor than men. In the United States, 16 percent of women live below the federal poverty line, compared with 12 percent of men.. Why is this? When we think about gender inequality in the workplace, its often in the context of the "wage gap," the well-documented phenomenon of women making less than their male colleagues for the same amount of work. Though more American women are finishing college these days than men, a woman with a bachelors degree can still expect to take home a lower salary than a man with the same degree. Averaging incomes across the nation, women make about 78.3 cents for every dollar earned by men. President Obama, who signed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law at the very beginning of his first term, has often called for measures to close the wage gap; however, income averages have moved very little over the past seven years, even ...

My peer mentor, Mark, inspired me to not give up. He taught me how to problem solve and think ahead. I can do anything if I set my mind to it and simply figure out how to do it. I can be independent. Today, I am finishing college and preparing to apply to medical school. I also volunteer my time in the neurology/pain management center at a leading medical center and have fun playing sled hockey and skiing. All things I never imagined during those dark nights laying in my hospital bed ...
The Senate recently included municipal health reform in its proposed budget. It includes a new expedited process for municipalities to transfer coverage to the Group Insurance Commission (GIC) or design plans with features that are no greater than the median co-pays and deductibles in the GIC. Last month, the House included a proposal in its budget. It gives municipalities plan design authority, enabling them to change health plan features such as co-pays and deductibles without having to go through the collective bargaining process. Both the House and Senate proposals ensure that cities and towns across the Commonwealth will achieve valuable and essential savings ...
For employers, the most discussed item in the FY18 budget is the employer assessment, which was originally proposed by the Administration. A modified version now sits before the Legislature.. Monday, Governor Baker returned to the Legislature an amendment to the assessment on employers that was adopted in the budget. The amendment adds a series of previously proposed changes to the MassHealth program and includes a request from the Governor that the Legislature hold a public hearing on the MassHealth changes within 30 days and act upon it within 60 days. The Governor also underscores that timely action is necessary to ensure the FY18 budget is balanced; without action, there is likely to be corrective budget action a few months into the fiscal year. In addition to the amendment, the Governor filed separate, stand-alone legislation that included commercial insurance market changes.. Both the amendment and the stand-alone legislation mirror a new proposal offered by the Governor while the House ...
Take a stroll down Brookline Avenue before any Red Sox game and youll see how easy it is to flout state law. Youre supposed to have a license to resell tickets - and youre not supposed to jack the price up more than $2 plus expenses. Yet Fenways unlicensed scalpers operate right on the street. And if you buy from a licensed reseller like Stub Hub or Ace Ticket, youll pay a heck of a lot more than two bucks extra. For some folks I talked to, the experience is a mixed bag. One woman paid $90 for a ticket with a $30 face value.. Now Brighton State Representative Mike Moran wants to scrap the states feeble anti-scalping law altogether - letting anyone who buys a ticket resell it at any price. That could benefit ordinary fans looking to unload tickets at the last minute, but only if they can overcome the publics intense aversion to buying on the street.. However, the biggest beneficiaries would probably be Stub Hub and Ace Ticket. Morans bill would let them raise prices even higher, and in ...

For the womens crew team at College of the Holy Cross and rowers everywhere, all eyes are on the Head of the Charles Regatta. Its a long journey for every rower participating in the sports ultimate competition. But few have come so far as Caroline Laurendeau, the 411" coxswain for the Holy Cross Crusaders womens rowing team.. Caroline, who was born weighing just 1 lb. 11 oz., spent the first four-and-a-half months of her life in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) at Boston Childrens Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.. Those first few months were hectic and scary for Carolines family. At one point, she suffered a pericardial effusion - fluid had accumulated around her heart. "The mortality rate from that can be really high," explains Dr. Jane Stewart, director of the Boston Childrens Infant Follow-up Program. Physicians at Boston Childrens tapped the effusion to release the fluid and save her life.. …. ...

Steven D. Freedman, M.D. is looking to improve communication between patients and physicians, not only during the office visit, but beyond it as well. Freedman, chief of the Division of Translational Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and a professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, started up the Passport to Trust foundation alongside Mark Aronson, M.D., Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, to do just that and improve the overall patient-physician encounter.. "One of the problems and barriers in healthcare is that generally the office visit is a black box," explains Freedman. "You may get a great doctor. You may get a not so great doctor. Its a one-way communication where the doctor says to you, Heres the test that I recommend, why dont you see me back in six weeks. They and their families generally are not informed partners in their care. And then we wonder why patients may not follow our recommendations.". For improving in-visit interactions, ...
Sarah Beth had just celebrated her 49th birthday on May 16, 2002. She had been eating healthy, walking three to four miles a day, and lost 22 lbs over a period of three months. Sarah Beth felt great!. On the Friday night before Memorial Day, May 24, Sarah Beth started running a low-grade fever, just enough to make her feel lousy, and had a slight cough. The next morning, however, she had a fever of 102.. Sarah Beth had planned to spend the day with her mother, but decided to stay home. An on call doctor said it was likely viral and to take Tylenol and stay hydrated. The fever would go down and then spike back up to 103 degrees.. Sarah Beths mother came to stay with her at her house, and then Sarah Beth went to bed. Sunday, Sarah Beth was unable to go to church. Her friend Linda checked on her and called the on call doctor, who told her that same thing he had told Sarah Beth, that it was likely viral. But that night, Sarah Beth could not get out of bed, could not eat or drink.. On Monday, Linda ...

The goal of Boston Community Information System Project is to explore new information system technologies that can provide sophisticated new services to entire metropolitan areas at moderate cost. The Boston Community Information System (BCIS) is a polychannel system that combines digital broadcast and duplex communication in a single integrated framework. Data from an experimental test of the BCIS system in 200 Boston area homes and businesses have shown that the Boston Community Information System provides a valuable and useful service. We present and discuss all of the data from the experimental test of the BCIS system in Boston area homes and offices from February 1987 to April 1988. The test began in February 1986, and the period from February 1986 to January 1987 is covered in MIT/LCS/TR-397. We also present data drawn from a second system that we have built called the Clipping Service. The Clipping Service provides a personalized information service to users around the world via electronic mail.

According to new study published in the Journal of Urology. Researchers have determined that individuals with mild to severe symptoms of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are more likely to suffer from metabolic syndrome (MetS), a collection of cardiovascular risk factors thought to be linked by insulin resistance). LUTS encompass voiding (incomplete emptying, weak stream, intermittency, straining) and storage (frequency, urgency, nocturia) difficulties.. In a study published in the August 2009 issue of The Journal of Urology, researchers from the New England Research Institutes, Watertown, Massachusetts; the Department of Urology, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois; Cornell University, Weill Medical College; Pfizer Inc, New York, New York; and Pfizer Ltd, Sandwich, United Kingdom, explored the possible association of LUTS with MetS using data from the Boston Area Community Health Survey. 2,301 men 30 to 79 years old were interviewed and analyses were conducted on 1,899 men who ...

About a year after mumps first arrived on campus, Harvard University Health Services Director Paul J. Barreira said there are currently no confirmed cases of the virus on campus.. Last spring, a months-long outbreak culminated in 66 total cases of mumps at Harvard. Although the disease died down by the start of the fall semester, HUHS confirmed five active cases of mumps on campus in Dec. 2016. HUHS confirmed the first two active cases of mumps at the College and Divinity School in Feb. 2016. The disease had infected 58 Harvard affiliates by the end of the 2016 spring semester and spread to nearby universities like Boston University and Tufts. Barreira said mumps outbreaks are not uncommon at large universities.. "Youve got this dense living arrangement, and youre all sharing water bottles and everything else so its easy to spread the virus," he said. In spring 2016, HUHS encouraged mumps patients to quarantine themselves at the Harvard Inn, and many infected students spent their spring ...

Mark Almberg, PNHP communications director, 312-782-6006, [email protected] Medicares pay-for-performance incentives, which financially reward or punish hospitals depending on whether they hit specific numerical targets in matters such as curbing inpatient readmissions, are having the unintended side effect of taking dollars away from the nations historically cash-strapped safety-net hospitals and boosting the revenue of wealthier hospitals that serve an economically better-off patient base.. Thats one of the conclusions of an evidence-based editorial in todays [Tuesday, Sept. 8] Annals of Internal Medicine.. The article, titled "Collateral Damage: Pay-for-Performance Initiatives and Safety-Net Hospitals," is written by two leading health-system researchers, Drs. Steffie Woolhandler and David U.
