1. Children with obesity were at greater risk of mortality in early adulthood than a population-based comparison group, suggesting that risks begin earlier than later adulthood. 2. Deaths due to suicide and self-injury are also common in this group, warranting clinical consideration at a primary care level. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) The impacts...
1. Sepsis bundles were not significantly associated with decreased risk of mortality or reduced vasopressor treatment time in community- or hospital-onset sepsis. 2. Components of the SEP-1 bundle, such as broad-spectrum IV antibiotic treatment and lactate levels were associated with improved outcomes in this population. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Sepsis bundles, or protocols...

1. Findings from this cohort study suggest that diets including processed meat, unprocessed, or poultry have significant associations with incidence of cardiovascular disease while fish do not 2. Processed meats and unprocessed red meats have significant association with all-cause mortality while poultry and fish did not Evidence Rating: 2 (Good) The concept...
Dexamethasone treatment for the acute respiratory distress syndrome: a multicentre, randomised controlled trial 1. Study findings suggest that early administration of intravenous dexamethasone during acute respiratory distress syndrome may decrease duration of mechanical ventilation and mortality rates. Evidence Level: 1 (Excellent) Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), characterized by acute hypoxemic respiratory failure...
1. In this retrospective study involving South Koreans with no history of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), persons who developed metabolic syndrome (MetS) within the three-year inclusion period were at significantly increased risk of MACE versus those who remained free of the condition. Persons who had MetS at the...
1. In this retrospective cohort study, mortality from neurodegenerative disease was higher among former professional soccer players than the control group. Mortality related to ischemic heart disease and lung cancer was lower. 2. Former professional soccer players were prescribed dementia-related medications more frequently than the control group. Evidence Rating Level: 2...
1. The incidence and mortality associated with cardiovascular disease has decreased over a generation in a Native American cohort, however, improvements in age-specific mortality amongst females has not been consistently demonstrated Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) High morbidity and mortality rates owing to cardiovascular disease (CVD) have been observed in...
1. Patients with obesity undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention are typically younger with more cardiovascular risk factors, but may be less likely to experience procedural complications, short-term and long-term adverse outcomes, with the exception of patients considered extremely obese Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) It has been well established that obesity is...
1. Maintaining obesity across adulthood, gaining weight from young to middle adulthood, and losing weight from middle to late adulthood, are all associated with an increased risk of all-cause mortality among community-dwelling adults. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) While it is known that high body mass index (BMI) is associated with...
