Social determinants of health and cardiologist involvement in the care of adults hospitalized for heart failure

JAMA Network Open

2023-11-20
(Press-News.org) About The Study: This study of 1,000 participants found that adults with low household income were less likely than adults with higher incomes to have a cardiologist involved in their care during a hospitalization for heart failure. These findings suggest that socioeconomic status may bias the care provided to patients hospitalized for heart failure. 

Authors: Parag Goyal, M.D., M.Sc., of Weill Cornell Medicine in New York, is the corresponding author.

Infertility and risk of autism spectrum disorder in children

2023-11-20
About The Study: In this study of 1.3 million children from Ontario, Canada, a slightly higher risk of autism spectrum disorder was observed in children born to individuals with infertility, which appears partly mediated by certain obstetrical and neonatal factors. To optimize child neurodevelopment, strategies should further explore these other factors in individuals with infertility, even among those not receiving fertility treatment.  Authors: Maria P. Velez, M.D., Ph.D., of Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, is the corresponding author.  To access the ...

The sound of injustice: Inequitable urban noise impacts people, wildlife

2023-11-20
Noise is an unseen pollutant with very real health impacts. Like many other forms of pollution, because of systemic injustice, it affects some people more than others. It also affects wildlife.   In a study published in Nature Ecology and Evolution, Colorado State University acoustic ecologists found that redlined, or marginalized, communities have more and louder urban noise, which has been linked to negative consequences for people and wildlife.   Ecological degradation exacerbates injustices against those living in formerly redlined ...

Grant backs research on teaching networks to make better decisions
2023-11-20
HOUSTON – (Nov. 20, 2023) – Picture a swarm of drones capturing photos and video as they survey an area: What would enable them to process the data collected in the most rapid and effective manner possible? Rice University’s Santiago Segarra and Ashutosh Sabharwal have won a grant from the Army Research Office, a directorate of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory, to develop a machine learning framework that improves military communication networks’ decision-making processes. The research could also help inform applications such as self-driving vehicles ...

72% of Thai women persuade partners to seek genetic counseling if they are thalassemia carriers | BGI Insight
2023-11-20
According to Thailand's Ministry of Public Health, approximately 18-24 million or 30-40 percent of the Thai population carries the thalassemia gene, with moderately severe thalassemia patients requiring regular treatment, including blood transfusion and chelation therapy to remove excess iron from the blood. To facilitate greater understanding of this hereditary hemoglobinopathy, BGI Genomics released its State of Thalassemia Awareness Report. This report assesses the level of knowledge and attitudes related to the associated ...

In many major crop regions, workers plant and harvest in spiraling heat and humidity

In many major crop regions, workers plant and harvest in spiraling heat and humidity
2023-11-20
A global study of major crops has found that farmworkers are being increasingly exposed to combinations of extreme heat and humidity during planting and harvest seasons that can make it hard for them to function. Such conditions have nearly doubled across the world since 1979, the authors report, a trend that could eventually hinder cultivation. The most affected crop is rice, the world’s number one staple, followed closely by maize. As temperatures rise, the trend has accelerated in recent years, with some regions seeing 15-day per-decade increases in extreme humid heat during ...

Understanding children’s views on the perfect school | Bentham Science

2023-11-20
Young Voices Unheard: Children’s Views from Scotland and Greece on Education is a new book published by Bentham Science that attempts to explore the question of how young children view the concepts of Children’s rights. Giving children an opportunity to voice their ideas on their education is necessary, if we do not want to deprive children of their right to be consulted and their opinions to be listened to and be seriously considered when decisions are made affecting children’s lives (article 12 of the Convention). The book attempts to give a voice to children aged 5 to ...

Redefining the quest for artificial intelligence: What should replace the Turing test?

2023-11-20
In a paper published Nov. 10 in Intelligent Computing, Philip Nicholas Johnson-Laird of Princeton University and Marco Ragni of Chemnitz University of Technology propose a novel alternative to the Turing test, a milestone test developed by computing pioneer Alan Turing. The paper suggests that it is time to shift the focus from whether a machine can mimic human responses to a more fundamental question: "Does a program reason in the way that humans reason?" The Turing test, which has long been a cornerstone of AI evaluation, involves a human evaluator attempting to distinguish between human and machine ...

Suboptimal follow-up, prevention in geriatric fall-related head trauma

Suboptimal follow-up, prevention in geriatric fall-related head trauma
2023-11-20
Falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries in the United States for adults ages 65 and older. With 1 in 4 older adults falling annually, 27,000 deaths, 8 million emergency department (ED) visits, and 800,000 hospitalizations have occurred. Follow-up after an ED-related fall visit is essential to initiate preventive strategies in these patients who are at very high risk for recurrent falls. Currently, it is unclear how frequently follow up occurs and whether preventive strategies are implemented. Researchers from Florida Atlantic University’s Schmidt College of Medicine and collaborators explored this issue by investigating ...
