    • New European Consensus on Palliative Care in Neuro Disease2014-09-17
      Daniel M. Keller, PhD June 03, 2014 ISTANBUL, Turkey — A new consensus paper for palliative care for patients with progressive neurologic disease emphasizes the special needs of these patients and how neurologists and palliative care specialists can work together to fulfil them. One of the authors, David Oliver, BSc, FRCP, FRCGP, geriatrician at Wisdom Hospice and consultant in palliative medicine at the University of Kent, United Kingdom, said that for progressive and disabling neurologic diseases without curative treatment, palliative care aims to relieve pain and other distressing symptoms and to affirm life [...]

      RNA-sequencing analysis reveals new alterations in cardiomyocyte cytoskeletal genes in patients with heart failure Laboratory Investigation (2014) 94, 645–653; doi:10.1038/labinvest.2014.54; published online 7 April 2014 Isabel Herrer, Esther Roselló-Lletí, Miguel Rivera, María Micaela Molina-Navarro, Estefanía Tarazón, Ana Ortega, Luis Martínez-Dolz, Juan Carlos Triviño, Francisca Lago, José R González-Juanatey, Vicente Bertomeu, José Anastasio Montero and Manuel Portolés Changes in cardiomyocyte cytoskeletal components, a crucial scaffold of cellular structure, have been found in heart failure (HF); however, the altered cytoskeletal network remains to be elucidated. This study investigated a new map of cytoskeleton-linked alterations that [...]
    • Women’s Health in Spaceflight2014-09-17
      Authors: Drudi, Laura; Grenon, S. Marlene Source: Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine, Volume 85, Number 6, June 2014, pp. 645-652(8) Publisher: Aerospace Medical Association Objective: To review the current state of knowledge with regards to clinical challenges related to women’s health during spaceflight. Methods: Articles were reviewed relevant to “women”, “sex,” and “gender” in “microgravity,” “weightlessness,” and “spaceflight” in the English and Russian languages.Results: There were 50 papers identified. Studies have shown that crewmembers suffer from space motion sickness, but gender discrepancies have not been explored. Nearly all women experience orthostatic intolerance in [...]
    • Cockpit Displays of Traffic Information and Pilot Bias in Time-to-Contact Judgments2014-09-17
      Authors: Pankok, Carl; Kaber, David B. Source: Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine, Volume 85, Number 6, June 2014, pp. 597-604(8) Publisher: Aerospace Medical Association Introduction: Pilots are susceptible to over-reliance on distance when making relative time-to-contact (TTC) judgments of surrounding intruders, referred to as “the distance bias.” We tested the effect of adding perceptual cues and an information feature to cockpit displays of traffic information to mitigate this bias. Method: There were 14 general aviation pilots who participated in a simulated flight scenario and were asked to make relative TTC judgments. Three levels [...]
