Long durations of rotating nightshift work may contribute to risk of hip and wrist fractures, although the potential for unexplained confounding cannot be ruled out.
Within the Life Safety Code, the NFPAs requirements for emergency lighting are referenced under section 7.9. Emergency illumination (when required) must be provided for a minimum of 1.5-hours in the event of failure of normal lighting. The emergency lighting must be arranged to provide initial illumination of not less than an average of one foot-candle and a minimum at any point of 0.1-foot-candle measured along the path of egress at floor level. And the emergency lighting system must be arranged to provide illumination automatically in the event of any interruption of normal lighting (section 7.9.2.3). ...
Although sleep and circadian rhythm disturbances are significant features of bipolar disorder and are associated with illness severity and recurrence, less is known about their significance prior to illness onset. Therefore, this study investigated these variables using objective assessment methods within a sample at high-risk of bipolar spectrum disorders. Thirty-one high-risk and 24 age- and gender-matched control participants wore an actigraph for 7 days to obtain sleep and circadian activity data. Self-report measures of mood, bed and get-up times, and cognitive style were also obtained. High-risk participants exhibited greater variability in duration, fragmentation, and efficiency of sleep, shorter sleep duration, and later and more variable bedtimes than controls. They also had lower relative amplitude of activity patterns and made more positive self-appraisals for hypomanic experiences. Logistic regression showed that positive self-appraisal and variability in bedtime significantly ...

To examine the effects of this disruption of circadian rhythm in mammals, the researchers exposed healthy mice to 20-h light/dark cycles, incongruous with their endogenous ∼24-h circadian period.. Over time, this disruption of circadian rhythm resulted in accelerated weight gain and obesity, as well as changes in metabolic hormones.. In addition, the researchers found marked in changes in the brains of these animals including loss of dendritic length and decreased complexity of neurons in brain regions important for complex executive functions and emotional control.. Consistent with these changes in brain architecture, disrupted animals showed decreased cognitive flexibility and changes in emotionality in experiments designed to test these functions.. These findings certainly support the notion that chronically disrupting the natural (24-h) circadian rhythm in mammals can lead to substantial changes in behaviour and alterations in metabolism that would promote weight gain.. Certainly further ...

Kirsten ten Tusscher first of all made a model that described the electrical behaviour of individual human heart muscle cells. She demonstrated that the behaviour of this model corresponded well with results from experiments on human heart cells. The source code of this cell model is freely available on Internet.. The researcher then used her new model to simulate the behaviour of 13,5 million individual grid points, which together form the anatomy of a human heart. As the model is extremely large and requires a considerable amount of calculating power, she used the TERAS supercomputer of SARA Computing and Networking Services and a mini-Beowulf cluster in her own Department of Theoretical Biology at Utrecht University. With this she studied the behaviour of electrical wave patterns during certain rhythm disorders in the human heart.. Heart rhythm disorders are abnormalities in the timing, sequence and co-ordination of how the heart muscle contracts. These vary in seriousness from palpitations ...
Clinical Presentation. The clinical presentation varies between patients and conditions, ranging from no symptoms to severe and frequently occurring symptoms 10. Though palpitations may occur infrequently, the typical symptoms are syncope (fainting) and cardiac arrest. Most inherited heart rhythm disorders are caused by autosomal dominant mutations 11-13. This means that a single genetic defect is present that results in the clinical condition that is inherited or transmitted to 50% of offspring. Typically, an index case (termed proband) presents with fainting, cardiac arrest or sudden death, and family screening identifies other members that are affected but with little or no symptoms. Being genetically affected, however, does not necessarily mean that individuals will be symptomatic. Penetrance is the term used to describe the proportion of individuals who possess the genetic mutation and are also symptomatic. The penetrance of inherited heart rhythm disorders is variable, ranging from 20-60% ...

There are eight reversible factors that can cause depression.. For some, depression may result from a combination of genetics, circadian rhythm disturbances, upbringing and social factors.. For others, depression may be rooted in a lack of dietary omega-3 fats combined with harmful addictions and adverse frontal lobe factors.. Exercise, herbs and nutrition play a role in the brains ability to manufacture serotonin and other neurotransmitters; thus, one may be able to manage good and bad stress, improve mood and change ones attitude and actions.. Dr. Neil Nedley, internal medicine specialist in cardiology, gastroenterology, and mental health and lifestyle medicine, has put together a DVD and eight-week depression recovery program..

VELscope System uses blue spectrum lighting to screen for oral cancer. The VELscope® Oral Assessment System centers on a handheld scope that we use to screen for oral tissue abnormalities, including cancer. Unlike other adjunctive devices used for oral screening, the VELscope® does not require any dyes or prolonged testing procedures. In fact, a VELscope® exam is performed in our office during a routine hygiene exam (and under normal lighting conditions) in about two minutes. VELscope® technology is changing the way oral cancer screenings take place. The VELscope® handheld device emits a harmless, bright blue light which is used to inspect the mouth and tongue. The device is extremely sensitive to abnormal tissue changes and the distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinct patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease, such as neoplastic lesions, and fungal, viral or bacterial infections. We use ...

The underlying cause of any heart rhythm disorder provides the basis for selecting the best treatment plan. In general, the best treatment is the least invasive option that effectively controls the heart rhythm disorder. Treatment options fall into several categories from the least to the most invasive.
A method for quantifying cardiac desynchrony of the right and left ventricles includes obtaining cardiac acquisition data from a medical imaging system, and determining a movement profile from the cardiac acquisition data. The movement profile is directed toward identifying at least one of a time-based contraction parameter for a region of the left ventricle (LV), and a displacement-based contraction parameter for a region of the LV. The determined movement profile is visually displayed by generating a 3D model therefrom.

Statement of Need Recent catastrophic bus and train accidents in the Bronx, New York, have highlighted the importance of understanding the negative effects of circadian sleep-wake disruption in shift workers, especially those in positions of responsibility for public safety, including bus and train operators and healthcare workers. Scientific evidence exists that manipulations by employers and employees can reduce the risk of errors due to sleep deprivation, so long as there is an understanding of underlying chronobiologic principles and the corresponding therapeutic options that can reduce and improve circadian disruption.. Activity Goal This program is designed to present the current understanding of chronobiology and the effects upon health and disease and to highlight the importance of circadian disruption on shift workers performances and productivity. Appropriate interventions can be undertaken by employers and employees to mitigate the effects of circadian disruption by manipulating ...
Introduction: Shift work, characterized by irregular schedules resulting in sleep loss and misalignment of circadian rhythms, is associated with increased incidence of cardiovascular disease. We tested whether circadian misalignment has an adverse impact on cardiovascular function independently of sleep loss. Methods: 19 healthy adults were studied using a parallel group design comparing two inter
Sleep duration and disruption have a significant impact on human health, quality of life, and life expectancy. Among humans, it is clear that the biological need for sleep varies dramatically. Natural short sleepers have a lifelong tendency to sleep only 4-5 h per night and to awaken refreshed and energetic. Natural long sleepers biologically require 9-10 h/night to feel well rested. The reason for these physiological differences is unknown and the genetic basis has not been explored.. Although relatively little is known regarding the genetic basis of sleep, there is a wealth of information on the genetics of circadian clock function across species. Sleep and circadian function are distinct processes that interact in living organisms. Although these two systems can operate independently, recent studies indicate a more intimate relationship.. Over the last decade, genetic material has been collected from individuals and families with circadian rhythm disturbances including familial advanced sleep ...
WASHINGTON - According to a new survey issued by the Heart Rhythm Society, the majority of Americans are unaware of two serious and potentially life-threatening heart rhythm disorders, atrial fibrillation (AF) and sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). In fact, only one in three Americans have ever heard of AF or recognize the number of lives claimed each year from SCA. Throughout February, Heart Health Month, the Heart Rhythm Society spotlights the need for public education on heart rhythm disorders affecting millions of people, and the specialists best suited to treat them - electrophysiologists.. More than 250,000 deaths occur each year as a result of SCA, more than breast cancer, lung cancer or AIDs. Yet, according to the recent survey, more than 65 percent of Americans not only underestimate the seriousness of SCA, but also believe SCA is a type of heart attack. While this current data does show a 5 percent increase since the Societys 2008 SCA awareness survey, the lack of awareness remains high and ...
Circadian clocks are found in nearly all organisms, from bacteria to mammals, and ensure that behavioral and physiological processes occur at optimal times of day and in the correct temporal order. It is becoming increasingly clear that chronic circadian misalignment (CCM), such as occurs in shift workers or as a result of aberrant sleeping and eating schedules common to modern society, has profound metabolic and cognitive consequences, but the proximate mechanisms connecting CCM with reduced organismal health are unknown. Furthermore, it has been difficult to disentangle whether the health effects are directly induced by misalignment or are secondary to the alterations in sleep and activity levels that commonly occur with CCM. Here, we investigated the consequences of CCM in the powerful model system of the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster. We subjected flies to daily 4-h phase delays in the light-dark schedule and used the Drosophila Activity Monitoring (DAM) system to continuously track locomotor
Behavioural signs and symptoms in dementia are of central clinical significance. There are a number of standardised rating scales available for the assessment of motor phenomena in dementia. However, there is no objective method of assessing these symptoms. In addition, the reliability of these scales, especially when used by caregivers from within families, has been questioned. In order to overcome this flaw, we propose the use of an actometric device for assessing behaviour motor symptoms in dementia. In the first part of this dissertation we assessed the reliability and the concurrent validity of an actometric device against two behavioural scales. Results show satisfactory validity and good reliability of this method. In the second part of this dissertation, we reanalysed data from our validation study, investigating whether the pattern of circadian rhythm disturbances is different in patients suffering from Alzheimer disease and patients suffering from vascular dementia, controlling ...
pH variation in Thionin: The Two-Faced Solution Integrated-Science students Erin Smyers and Nicole Loughner from Homer-Center High School in Homer City, PA, worked with their science team leader, Mark Shopland, to investigate the pH changes in an oxidation-reduction reaction. The students chose to work with Thionin based on the demonstration Thionin - The Two-Faced Solution published by Flinn Scientific Inc. (Publication No. 0815.00). According to the Flinn Chem-Fax, Thionin is an organic compound that in the oxidized form is purple and in the reduced form is colorless. When a reducing agent such as iron(II) ion (Fe2+) is added to an acidic thionin solution, the thionin (Thio+) molecule accepts two hydrogen atoms and is reduced to its colorless form. This reaction only takes place in the presence of an intense light source. Thio+ + 2Fe2+ + 2H+ + Light ↔ ThioH2+ + 2Fe3+ [purple] [colorless] The graph shows the relatively constant pH under normal lighting conditions and the varying pH levels of the

Abstract:. BACKGROUND: Sleep-wake disturbances have frequently been reported in bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, and are considered to be caused by an underlying circadian rhythm disorder. The study presented here was designed to investigate the existence of Per3 polymorphism in bipolar disorder type I (BD-I) and schizophrenic patients in South India. METHODS: Blood samples were collected from 311 BD-I patients, 293 schizophrenia patients, and 346 age- and sex-matched normal controls. Per3 genotyping was performed on DNA by polymerase chain reaction using specific primers. RESULTS: An increased prevalence of five repeat homozygotes was seen in BD-I patients as compared with healthy controls (odds ratio =1.72 [95% confidence interval: 1.08-2.76, P=0.02]). In BD-I patients, the frequency of the five repeat allele was higher (allele frequency =0.41), and that of the four repeat allele lower (allele frequency =0.36) (χ (2)=4.634; P,0.03) than in the control group. No significant association was ...

Generation of Knockout Mice. The methods for generation of the knockout mice were as described in detail by Roberts et al. (2000). In brief, gene inactivation was obtained by disruption of the first coding exon of the μ-opioid receptor gene in 129/SV embryonic stem cells. Germline transmission occurred from the breeding of chimeric males with C57BL/6Orl females. After mice were genotyped, those showing germline transmission were used as founder animals to produce the F1 animals used in these experiments. We used male homozygous MOR KO and WT littermate mice (shipped from Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA) in these experiments. The genetic background of these mice was a hybrid C57BL/6Orl × 129/SV strain. We housed mice one to three per cage in a temperature-controlled room in which the lights were on a 12-h light/dark cycle with lights off at 10:00 AM.. In Vitro Single-Cell Recordings. We used 4- to 5-month-old MOR KO and genetically intact WT littermate mice in this study. In some ...

Circadian disruption has been implicated in tumour development, but the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Here, we show that the molecular clockwork within malignant human pancreatic epithelium is disrupted and that this disruption is mediated by miR-135b-induced BMAL1 repression. miR-135b directly targets the BMAL1 3-UTR and thereby disturbs the pancreatic oscillator, and the downregulation of miR-135b is essential for the realignment of the cellular clock. Asynchrony between miR-135b and BMAL1 expression impairs the local circadian gating control of tumour suppression and significantly promotes tumourigenesis and resistance to gemcitabine in pancreatic cancer (PC) cells, as demonstrated by bioinformatics analyses of public PC data sets and in vitro and in vivo functional studies ...
