Pregnancy duration and endometrial cancer risk: nationwide cohort study Full-term pregnancies are strongly associated with a reduced risk of endometrial cancer. Whether this protective association is driven by fecundity, a specific process that occurs during pregnancy, or cumulative number of months pregnancy, however, is unknown. In this cohort study, 2,311,332...
  Effect of Clopidogrel and Aspirin vs. Aspirin Alone on Migraine Headaches After Transcatheter Atrial Septal Defect Closure: The CANOA Randomized Clinical Trial New-onset migraines affect approximately 15% of patients that have undergone transcatheter atrial septal defect (ASD) closure. Following the transcatheter procedure, empirical antithrombotic therapy is indicated, with aspirin over...
  1. In this cluster randomization with crossover trial, continuous chest compressions with asynchronous positive pressure ventilation (PPV) during CPR was not associated with a significantly higher rate of survival to hospital discharge or favorable neurologic function compared to a strategy of chest compressions interrupted for ventilations. 2. The continuous...
1. In this study, survival at discharge was more likely to occur with bystander-initiated cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation, bystander-initiated CPR and first responder defibrillation, and first responder-initiated CPR and defibrillation, than it was for emergency medical services-initiated CPR and defibrillation. 2. In this study, individuals who received bystander and...
1. In a study conducted using data from the Swedish Cardiac Arrest Registry, initiating cardiopulmonary resuscitation prior to the arrival of emergency medical services was associated with significantly higher 30-day survival. 2. This study also demonstrated that shorter time to starting CPR after collapse was linked with improved 30-day...
In this section, we highlight the key high-impact studies, updates, and analyses published in medicine during the past week. Randomized Assessment of Rapid Endovascular Treatment of Ischemic Stroke With current ischemic stroke treatment options, approximately 60 to 80% of patients suffering from a stroke involving the proximal vessel occlusion in the...
1. Amongst Medicare beneficiaries who experienced an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in urban areas, those who received basic life support (BLS) had greater survival to hospital discharge and beyond compared to those who received advanced life support (ALS) in the field. 2. Neurologic recovery rates were also higher amongst patients who...
1. No evidence of improvement in 30-day survival was found with use of LUCAS-2 mechanical compression versus manual compression for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) of cardiac arrest victims outside of a hospital. 2. Health systems must evaluate the benefit of introducing LUCAS-2 technology into emergency vehicles, weighing the price of the...
Image: PD/Tau Protein Alzheimer Disease In this section, we will highlight the key high-impact studies, updates, and analyses published in medicine during the past week. Romosozumab in Postmenopausal Women with Low Bone Mineral Density Current osteoporosis medications increase bone mineral density and prevent the progression of structural damage but may not restore...
Image: PD 1. Rates of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on patients in cardiac arrest increased following initiatives to improve resuscitation education in Denmark.  2. Survival increased in cardiac arrest patients who were given CPR by bystanders.  Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good)  Study Rundown: This study, conducted using patient data from Denmark, assessed the...
