Metabolic cost of locomotion during treadmill walking with blood flow restriction
Summary We explored whether interval walking with blood flow restriction (BFR) increases net metabolic cost of locomotion in healthy young men at their optimal walking speed. We also determined whether decreased walking economy resulting from BFR might be accompanied by an increase in ventilation relative to VO2 and VCO2. Finally, we examined possible relationships between the changes in ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) and those obtained in minute ventilation (VE) during walking with BFR. Eighteen healthy men (age: 22·5 ± 3·4 years) performed graded treadmill exercise to assess VO2max. In a randomized fashion, pa...

Smoking cessation in the workplace
Conclusions Smoking cessation programmes at work can provide useful support for workers wishing to stop smoking. They are only likely to be effective if participants have moved beyond the contemplation stage regarding smoking cessation, so that stopping smoking is a personal priority.

TRiM: an organizational response to traumatic events in Cumbria Constabulary
Conclusions In this study, we found that TRiM deployed within a police force responding to a major event offered a way of structuring a response for those involved. Our data suggest that TRiM may offer a way of assessing psychological risk so that officers can be offered early supportive interventions. Our data suggest that TRiM may help to ameliorate some of the negative effects of high trauma exposure. (Source: Occupational Medicine)

Clinical review: Lung imaging in acute respiratory distress syndrome patients - an update
Over the past 30 years lung imaging has greatly contributed to the current understanding of the pathophysiology and the management of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). In the past few years, in addition to chest X-ray and lung computed tomography, newer functional lung imaging techniques, such as lung ultrasound, positron emission tomography, electrical impedance tomography and magnetic resonance, have been gaining a role as diagnostic tools to optimize lung assessment and ventilator management in ARDS patients. Here we provide an updated clinical review of lung imaging in ARDS over the past few years to offer a...

Vesicular glutamate transporter 2 is required for the respiratory and parasympathetic activation produced by optogenetic stimulation of catecholaminergic neurons in the rostral ventrolateral medulla of mice in vivo
In conclusion, two responses evoked by RVLM‐CA neuron stimulation in vivo require the expression of VGLUT2 by these neurons, suggesting that the acute autonomic responses driven by RVLM‐CA neurons are mediated by glutamate. Catecholaminergic neurons of the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM‐CA neurons, viz. C1 neurons) contribute to the sympathetic, parasympathetic and neuroendocrine responses elicited by physical stressors such as hypotension, hypoxia, hypoglycemia and infection. Most RVLM‐CA neurons express vesicular glutamate transporter 2 (VGLUT2) and may use glutamate as a ionotropic transmitter but the impo...

Melatonin in the Biliary Tract and Liver: Health Implications.
Abstract Melatonin is a widely-produced and ubiquitously-distributed molecule with multiple critical functions in all organs and organisms. These functions are mediated by both receptor-mediated and receptor-independent actions of the indole. This survey reviews the reports documenting the presence and function of melatonin in the hepatobiliary system. The published data document the exceptionally high concentrations of melatonin in the bile; herein, we speculate on the significance of these high melatonin levels to the function of the biliary tree. Moreover, we suggest that the elevated concentrations of melatonin...

Immunohistochemical detection of virus through its nuclear cytopathic effect in idiopathic interstitial pneumonia other than acute exacerbation.
Abstract Idiopathic interstitial pneumonias include complex diseases that have a strong interaction between genetic makeup and environmental factors. However, in many cases, no infectious agent can be demonstrated, and these clinical diseases rapidly progress to death. Theoretically, idiopathic interstitial pneumonias could be caused by the Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, adenovirus, hepatitis C virus, respiratory syncytial virus, and herpesvirus, which may be present in such small amounts or such configuration that routine histopathological analysis or viral culture techniques cannot detect them. To test the ...

Cardiorespiratory complications of neuraxial opioids in patients with obstructive sleep apnea: a systematic review
Abstract: We sought to determine the rate of cardiorespiratory complications following neuraxial opioid administration in the setting of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This systematic review of the leading biomedical databases originated from a university-affiliated, tertiary-care teaching hospital. A systematic search of Medline, Embase, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and the International Pharmaceutical Abstracts Database (1970 - September 2011) was undertaken. Cardiorespiratory complications were stratified into minor and major based on existing OSA literature. F...

Respiratory failure due to blastomycosis infection in a patient with hypertension, cirrhosis and chronic pancreatitis.
Abstract Blastomycosis is an endemic fungal infection in North America. It usually causes acute and occasionally chronic pneumonias with disseminated infection, particularly skin lesion, as an extrapulmonary manifestation. Many cases are asymptomatic; however, a few patients progress to develop severe pulmonary infection leading to acute respiratory distress syndrome, which carries a high mortality rate. Disseminated blastomycosis involving the heart is exceptionally rare and can be potentially life threatening. To our knowledge, there are only four reported cases of cardiac blastomycosis in the literature. Here, w...

Disconnection between Periodic Leg Movements and Cortical Arousals in Spinal Cord Injury
Conclusion:The disconnection of PLMs from arousals supports a spinal generator or peripheral trigger mechanism for PLMs. The suppression of movements by a dopamine agonist suggests that its site of action is caudal to the cervical lesion and outside of the brain. Our observation provides significant new knowledge about the pathogenesis of PLMs and warrants studies in larger populations.Citation:Salminen AV; Manconi M; Rimpilä V; Luoto TM; Koskinen E; Ferri R; Öhman J; Polo O.

A retrospective performance evaluation of an adenovirus real‐time PCR assay
Abstract Human adenoviruses (AdVs) cause a wide range of diseases. To date, there are at least 60 known human AdV types and, as these exhibit high levels of genetic variation this could impact potentially upon their detection by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)‐based technology. Here, the sensitivity of a pan‐AdV real‐time PCR assay (AdV‐PCR) used widely for testing clinical samples was determined retrospectively. An in silico analysis was performed initially using the 370 AdV sequences available on the Genbank database. To investigate for potential false‐negative results, two additional AdV‐PCR assays were used...

Causes of mortality and pathological lesions observed post-mortem in red squirrels (Sciurus vulgaris) in Great Britain
Conclusions: Red squirrels in Britain suffer premature or unnatural mortality due to a number of conditions in addition to squirrelpox, many of which result, directly or indirectly, from human activities: road traffic trauma, pet predation, toxoplasmosis, trap injuries, rodenticide poisoning and electrocution accounted for 61% of all recorded mortality in this study. Red squirrels are also affected by several diseases of unknown aetiology which merit further research. (Source: BMC Veterinary Research - Latest articles)

A recombinant anchorless respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) fusion (F) protein/monophosphoryl lipid A (MPL) vaccine protects against RSV-induced replication and lung pathology.
Abstract We previously demonstrated that the severe cytokine storm and pathology associated with RSV infection following intramuscular vaccination of cotton rats with FI-RSV Lot 100 could be completely abolished by formulating the vaccine with the mild TLR4 agonist and adjuvant, monophosphoryl lipid A (MPL). Despite this significant improvement, the vaccine failed to blunt viral replication in the lungs. Since MPL is a weak TLR4 agonist, we hypothesized that its adjuvant activity was mediated by modulating the innate immune response of respiratory tract resident macrophages. Therefore, we developed a new vaccine pr...

Acute myocardial infarction after prednisolone administration for the treatment of anaphylaxis caused by a wasp sting.
CONCLUSION: Although reduced coronary perfusion, local histamine release-induced coronary vasospasm or severe hypoxia have been suggested, the pathophysiology remains unclear. Acute STEMI may be a rare but clinically important complication of a wasp sting, anaphylaxis or the corticosteroid used for its treatment, even in young adults with normal coronary arteries. Therefore, physicians should be aware of such serious complications in order to diagnose them early. PMID: 24217126 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Cardiovascular Journal of Africa)
