Critical Care

There is a sex difference in the risk of ischemic acute kidney injury (AKI), and estrogen mediates the protective effect of female sex. We previously demonstrated that preprocedural chronic restoration of physiologic estrogen to ovariectomized female mice ameliorated AKI after cardiac arrest and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CA/CPR). In the present study, we hypothesized that male mice and aged female mice would benefit from estrogen administration after CA/CPR. We tested the effect of estrogen in a clinically relevant manner by administrating it after CA/CPR.

Authors’ reply to Whitlock and Saied and colleagues

Whitlock raises the important problem of default ventilator settings.1 2 Sex imbalances in the use of intraoperative protective ventilation have been described previously.3 Default settings on the ventilator probably play a large part in this discrepancy, as does the difference in the calculation of ideal body weight, which is based on sex. The default settings on the ventilators at our institution are almost identical to …

Interventions to address problems with sexual function in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease | Cochrane

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a general term referring to chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. People with COPD are thought to be at greater risk of having problems with sexual function than other people their age. These problems can include difficulties getting or maintaining an erection (for men), reduced sexual desire, difficulty achieving orgasm, discomfort during sex, anxiety about performance, or sex not being pleasurable. The aim of this review was to summarise studies that investigated the effects of drugs, physical aids, psychological interventions such as counselling, or educational interventions in order to improve the sexual function or sexual satisfaction of people with COPD and their partners.
