More significantly, email communications have changed our behaviour through their perceived urgency and sheer volume. Some people receive more than 100 a day, as “spam” filters fail to live up to their promise. In the vain hope of controlling the “inbox”, some answer their emails immediately. For others, the day’s first task is to deal with the inevitable new batch of emails. The seeming importance of each email demands immediate attention. How many of us have responded to the heady rush and… Expand

Drowning is a common cause of accidental death and often affects young healthy individuals. Early rescue and resuscitation in order to minimise damage to the central nervous system and theExpand
Drowning, Near Drowning and Immersion Syndrome
TLDR
This article is intended to update medical and paramedical staff on current terminology and the emergency management of submersion injury and the fact that significant morbidity may still arise in the apparent survivor, up to 24 hours after successful rescue. Expand

Near‐drowning treated with therapeutic hypothermia
TLDR
The importance of continuing resuscitation efforts despite severe acidosis and fixed dilated pupils in drowning victims, as ultimate neurological recovery is still possible, suggests that the benefit of hypothermia may be not in preventing death but in improving neurological outcome in survivors. Expand
Influence of hypothermia, barbiturate therapy, and intracranial pressure monitoring on morbidity and mortality after near‐drowning
TLDR
Because severe cerebral edema and herniation after near-drowning is usually associated with irreversible brain damage, measures to control brain swelling such as hypothermia and barbiturates will be of little benefit. Expand
Cold water submersion and cardiac arrest in treatment of severe hypothermia with cardiopulmonary bypass.
TLDR
Until more information regarding prognostic factors are available, children who are severely hypothermic and clinically dead after submersion in cold water--even if for an unknown length of time--should receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and be transported without delay to a facility with capabilities for CPB instituted via a median sternotomy.

Treatment of comatose survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with induced hypothermia.
TLDR
Treatment with moderate hypothermia appears to improve outcomes in patients with coma after resuscitation from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, according to preliminary observations. Expand
Mild therapeutic hypothermia to improve the neurologic outcome after cardiac arrest.
TLDR
In patients who have been successfully resuscitated after cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation, therapeutic mild hypothermia increased the rate of a favorable neurologic outcome and reduced mortality. Expand
Physical health monitoring of patients with schizophrenia.
TLDR
A consensus panel's recommendations for improving the physical health monitoring of patients with schizophrenia who are treated in outpatient settings, including regular monitoring of body mass index, plasma glucose level, lipid profiles, and signs of prolactin elevation or sexual dysfunction are discussed.

Experimental and Clinical Studies on Lactate and Pyruvate as Indicators of the Severity of Acute Circulatory Failure (Shock)
TLDR
These studies corroborate that L alone serves as a reliable indicator, but neither the measurement of P nor the computation of L/P or XL was shown to improve either the reliability of L as a measure of cumulative oxygen debt or its value as a prognosticator of survival during shock states. Expand
Consensus development conference on antipsychotic drugs and obesity and diabetes.
TLDR
A consensus position is developed on the relationship between the second-generation antipsychotics (SGAs) and the development of major CVD risk factors, including obesity, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. Expand
Plasma and macular responses to lutein supplement in subjects with and without age-related maculopathy: a pilot study.
TLDR
The augmentation of MP, and plasma concentrations of lutein, following supplementation in subjects with ARM provides the first evidence the disease is not associated with intestinal malabsorption of the relevant macular carotenoids, and that a diseased macula can accumulate and stabilise lutenin and/or zeaxanthin.
