Report finds female doctors may be more effective than male counterparts in reducing mortality and readmission rates
Oct 20, 2017
There have always been differences in the way that men and women think and work. When it comes to physicians, those differences can mean healthier patients and lower hospital costs. The 2010 HealthCare Act was signed in to law along with the Affordable Care Act, and restructured how hospitals get paid. It basically rewarded hospitals for patients' long-term health, and penalized them for patients being readmitted. It's laws like this and the concerns over rising health care costs that have hospitals looking for ways of improving patient outcomes and reducing operating costs. One tool for achieving this may be right under the hospital's nose... female doctors. A recent study published in the JAMA medical journal analyzes patient outcomes for female versus male physicians. The study, conducted by a Harvard team of researchers, reviewed data from a random sample of Medicare patients hospitalized between January 2011 to December 2014. They analyzed more than 1.5 million hospitalizations of Medicare patients treated by…
Weekly consumption of chocolate linked to lower risk for diabetes and cognitive decline according to new study
Jan 24, 2017
Chocolate is generally considered to be a popular treat or dessert. However, people’s love of chocolate might be based on more than just taste. There may be health-related reasons for the universal popularity of chocolate. We don’t typically think of our medicine as tasting good, so chocolate as medicine may be a difficult idea to swallow. Nonetheless, a recent study, the Maine-Syracuse Longitudinal Study (MSLS), has concluded that people who eat chocolate at least once a week have a lower incidence of diabetes and have a lower risk for developing diabetes in the next 4 to 5 years. Researches from the University of Maine partnered with a nutritionist and psychologist from the University of South Australia to conduct this study of over 900 participants. The National Institute of Health and the National Health and Medical Research Council, Australia both supported the research. Multiple neuropsychological tests were given to participants to measure cognitive performance in relation to chocolate consumption. A 2011…

Most of us have heard the saying "too much of a good thing" used to reference excesses in things like chocolate or sex. Now it seems that this age-old saying may apply to something as innocuous as drinking water. Hyponatremia is a condition that is defined as a severe electrolyte imbalance which rapidly decreases the sodium in the blood and can have serious consequences and may be fatal. Hyponatremia, more commonly known as "water intoxication," is generally caused by drinking too much water within a short period of time. Early onset symptoms of water intoxication can include: nausea, vomiting, and disorientation. If the condition is not treated promptly the symptoms generally worsen to include: seizures, coma, brain damage, and death. Several incidents of water intoxication have been reported, especially in the sports world. Exercise associated hyponatremia is seen when those engaging in endurance sports and athletic activities "preload" water and sports drinks in order to avoid fatigue, muscle cramps, or…
