The Kallikak Family - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Kallikak Family: A Study in the Heredity of Feeble-Mindedness was a 1912 book by the American psychologist and eugenicist Henry H. Goddard. The work was an extended case study of Goddard's for the inheritance of "feeble-mindedness," a general category referring to a variety of mental disabilities including mental retardation, learning disabilities, and mental illness.

The cardiovascular safety of methylphenidate

In the United States alone, 6.4 million children received a diagnosis of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in 2011. Of these, 3.5 million received a stimulant drug, typically methylphenidate.1 In addition, there is off label use of stimulants for milder attention problems. The cardiac safety of stimulants, which are known to slightly raise blood pressure and accelerate the heart rate, has been hotly debated as case reports,2 and conflicting evidence has emerged over time.3

Training for Stress - INTENSIVE

The session was based on last year’s SMACC Chicago workshop ‘Learning to take the heat’ (see Learning to the heat at #SMACCUS – we’re doing it again at SMACCDUB soon…) Since then, a superb post was published at St Emlyn’s on Robert Lloyd’s experience working in South Africa, titled An Englishman in South Africa: Robert Lloyd. This reads as a case study in how anyone can succumb to the acute stress response when they perceive a threat to exceed their ability to cope. It is also a case study in how to go about rectifying the issue using stress training techniques. Hats off to Robert for sharing his experience, it is a must read!

Cardiovascular risks associated with clarithromycin

Concerns about the cardiovascular risks of macrolide antibiotics surfaced in the 1980s, with case reports and clinical studies describing arrhythmias and QT prolongation with erythromycin.1 2 These concerns subsequently extended to azithromycin3 and clarithromycin,4 two other members of the macrolide class. For example, a large cohort study using Danish healthcare data showed, on average, a 76% higher risk of cardiovascular mortality with current use of clarithromycin compared with penicillin V among middle aged patients, translating into an adjusted absolute risk difference of 37 cardiac deaths per million courses.4 The authors acknowledged concerns about confounding by indication and residual confounding. However, in a randomised controlled trial without such problems, a two week course of clarithromycin increased the risk of cardiovascular death for three years, compared with placebo, among patients with stable coronary artery disease.5
