Hormone, bone tests may be indicative of dialysis patients' heart health

Approximately 2 million kidney disease patients in the world receive some sort of dialysis treatment. Now researchers say that in these patients, high parathyroid hormone levels and subsequent bone loss are major risk factors for worsening of coronary artery calcification.

Corticosteroids for the management of cancer pain in adults | Cochrane

Background: One of the most feared symptoms associated with cancer is pain. Opioids remain the mainstay of pain treatment but corticosteroids are often used at the same time, along with standard pain relievers. This review evaluates the clinical trial evidence up to 29 September 2014 to determine how effective corticosteroids are in treating cancer-related pain in adults and how well tolerated this treatment is for these patients.

Principles of Medical Physiology

This book has been specifically designed with the needs of the student in mind. Lengthy explanations are avoided and the material is presented in a concise form that not only makes it easy to understand but also easy to remember and reproduce, which is precisely what the student needs. Key features - Short chapters are organized in the sequence preferred by most physiology teachers - The contents of each chapter are tailored to provide just enough material for a single lecture (occasionally two lectures), making it very handy for teachers. (The book contains 120 chapters) - Basics of relevant physics and chemistry are made extremely simple. This is welcomed by both physiology teachers and students, for efficient teaching and learning - Schematic diagrams in 3D perspective are employed to elucidate difficult anatomical concepts, including the gross structure of the brain - Simple analogies of difficult concepts are given, often comically illustrated. Apparent paradoxes are highlighted and simple answers are provided - Difficult topics are presented with elegant simplicity and brevity without compromising on the core concepts. These include membrane electrophysiology, electromyography, hemostatic balance, electrocardiography, cardiac output, hemodynamics, respiratory mechanics, counter-current multiplier system, body fluid and electrolyte balance, gastric acid secretion, calcitropic hormones, fetoplacental unit, memory and learning, synaptic transmission and sensorimotor mechanisms

Is it better to add long-acting muscarinic antagonists or long-acting beta2-agonists to inhaled corticosteroids for people with uncontrolled asthma? | Cochrane

Differences between long-acting muscarinic antagonists (LAMA) and long-acting beta2-agonists (LABA) are mostly small or uncertain, based on studies less than six months in duration. The current evidence is not strong enough to support using LAMA instead of LABA for people whose asthma is not controlled on inhaled corticosteroids.

PMC1595201

In nature, when a laboring animal feels threatened or disturbed, the stress hormone catecholamine shuts down labor. Similarly, when a laboring woman does not feel safe or protected or when the progress of her normal labor is altered, catecholamine levels rise and labor slows down or stops. This column discusses the importance of providing labor support that respects the woman's privacy, protects her from unnecessary interventions, insures her safety, and allows her to trust her inherent ability to give birth normally.

Corticosteroids including ACTH (adrenocorticotrophin hormone) for childhood epilepsy other than epileptic spasms | Cochrane

We wanted to assess whether corticosteroids including ACTH are an effective treatment for children with epilepsy. Corticosteroids are sometimes used as an additional therapy to antiepileptic drugs in children with uncontrolled epilepsy. The role of corticosteroids in children with epilepsy is yet to be established.

Intrauterine contraception soon after childbirth | Cochrane

Women have two main choices for intrauterine contraception (IUC): one that releases the hormone levonorgestrel, and one without hormones that contains copper. Beginning IUC use right after childbirth and before hospital discharge can be good for many reasons. The woman knows she is not pregnant, and the time and place are convenient for starting a method that works well. We looked at whether IUC would be more likely to come out on its own if put in right after birth of a baby. For women who wanted IUC but did not have it placed right away, we studied whether they returned later for insertion.

Repeat doses of prenatal corticosteroids for women at risk of preterm birth for preventing neonatal respiratory disease | Cochrane

This review shows that a repeat dose of prenatal corticosteroids given to women who remain at risk of an early birth after an initial course of prenatal corticosteroids helps the baby's lungs and reduces serious health problems in the first few weeks of life.

Can taking inhaled corticosteroids when needed for symptoms help people with mild asthma from becoming more unwell? | Cochrane

Daily inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are the mainstay of medications prescribed for people with asthma who have ongoing difficulty with their breathing. However, for those with a milder form of the condition, it is hard to predict when their asthma will get worse and so many people do not use their inhaler regularly. In this review, we compared the use of ICS used intermittently at the start of an asthma episode with placebo treatment in children and adults with mild asthma (two trials representing 385 participants) and in preschool children deemed to be at risk of developing asthma symptoms in the future (four trials representing 490 participants).
