Link unlikely between insomnia symptoms, high blood pressure, study concludes

Link unlikely between insomnia symptoms, high blood pressure, study concludes

There’s good news for the 30 per cent or more of adults who suffer from insomnia–difficulty falling asleep, waking up for prolonged periods during the night or unwanted early morning awakenings. New research from St. Michael’s Hospital has found that insomnia does not put them at increased risk of developing high blood pressure. Continue reading

First comprehensive pediatric concussion guidelines available now

First comprehensive pediatric concussion guidelines available now

Pediatric emergency medicine researchers at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) together with the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF) today launch the first comprehensive pediatric concussion guidelines. “There have been recommendations and policies on concussion available in the past, but they tend to have focused on sports-related injury and not on children and youth,” said Dr Continue reading

Deep brain stimulation improves non motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease as well as motor symptoms

Deep brain stimulation improves non motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease as well as motor symptoms

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has become a well-recognized non-pharmacologic treatment that improves motor symptoms of patients with early and advanced Parkinson’s disease. Evidence now indicates that DBS can decrease the number and severity of non motor symptoms of patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) as well, according to a review published in the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease .

New device could improve biomarker analyses

New device could improve biomarker analyses

A device proposed by researchers at Sweden’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology could offer a more reliable alternative for detecting biomarkers in patients facing such illnesses as cancer or malaria. Whether to extract circulating tumor cells from the blood of a cancer patient, or to measure the elasticity of red blood cells due to malaria infection, the physical attributes of cells are important biomarkers in medicine.
