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.

Importance of “default” intraoperative ventilator settings

This article is very useful for anesthesia providers, who are typically responsible for selecting intraoperative ventilator settings—an area that sometimes does not receive the attention it deserves.1 I noticed that women in the cohort were substantially less likely to receive lung protective ventilation. Such a sex imbalance has been found before in studies of acute lung injury ventilation.2 Could this be due to default ventilator settings …

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.

The effect of early-life education on later-life mortality

Many studies link cross-state variation in compulsory schooling laws to early-life educational attainment, thereby providing a plausible way to investigate the causal impact of education on various lifetime outcomes. We use this strategy to estimate the effect of education on older-age mortality of individuals born in the early twentieth century U.S. Our key innovation is to combine U.S. Census data and the complete Vital Statistics records to form precise mortality estimates by sex, birth cohort, and birth state. In turn we find that virtually all of the variation in these mortality rates is captured by cohort effects and state effects alone, making it impossible to reliably tease out any additional impact due to changing educational attainment induced by state-level changes in compulsory schooling.

What is chemsex and why does it matter?

“Chemsex” is used in the United Kingdom to describe intentional sex under the influence of psychoactive drugs, mostly among men who have sex with men. It refers particularly to the use of mephedrone, γ-hydroxybutyrate (GHB), γ-butyrolactone (GBL), and crystallised methamphetamine. These drugs are often used in combination to facilitate sexual sessions lasting several hours or days with multiple sexual partners.1 2
