@samay A total of 134 children between 5 and 12 years of age were randomly assigned to receive INCS for 3 months or placebo. Children in the original INCS arm were then reassigned to receive 9 more months of the same treatment or placebo. Symptoms as well as polysomnographic and neurobehavioral findings were measured at baseline, at 3 months, and again at 12 months.

RE: Overdiagnosis Only a Matter of Time With ECG Watches
@jhilmil The thinking behind mobile heart-rhythm monitoring is simple: Stroke is a major health problem. AF associates with stroke. We have a treatment for stroke reduction (anticoagulants). Thus, it would be great to screen more people to detect AF. The problem is that simple thinking rarely works in medicine—an observation that was made long before mobile tech.
RE: More Evidence Ultraprocessed Foods Detrimental for the Brain
@titumir Based on these findings, doctors might counsel patients to prefer cooking at home [and] choosing fresher ingredients instead of buying ready-made meals and snacks.UPFs are highly manipulated, are packed with added ingredients, including sugar, fat, and salt, and are low in protein and fiber. Examples of UPFs include soft drinks, chips, chocolate, candy, ice cream, sweetened breakfast cereals, packaged soups, chicken nuggets, hotdogs, fries, and many more.
Adverse Drug Events That Bring Kids to the Emergency Department
Most of the literature and safety initiatives around adverse drug events (ADEs) concern inpatient prescribing. Therefore, a recent study sought to describe the patterns and drugs involved in outpatient ADEs. The study evaluated 2013-2014 data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System-Cooperative Adverse Drug Event Surveillance Project, which collates ADEs from a stratified national sample of hospital emergency departments (EDs). Both prescribed and over-the-counter drugs as well as vaccines, nutritional supplements and vitamins, and homeopathic products were included in this study. The mechanism of ADE, such as dosing or scheduling error, route error, incorrect drug administration, ingestion, or allergic reaction, was recorded for each ADE.
RE: The Gastroenterologist's Guide to Food Allergies, Intolerances, and Sensitivities
@jeevandeep Food allergies are due to an immunologic response to a food antigen culminating in a characteristic set of symptoms, ranging from mild to severe, with severe being multiorgan system anaphylaxis. In addition to immediate IgE-mediated food allergies, T cell–mediated and mixed pathophysiology food allergic disorders may present with more delayed and usually chronic gastrointestinal symptoms of emesis, diarrhea, blood in stool, poor growth, and/or weight loss. These disorders include eosinophilic esophagitis, food protein–induced enterocolitis syndrome, allergic proctocolitis, and enteropathy.
RE: What are the after effect of COVID?
@timir Most people who have coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) recover completely within a few weeks. But some people — even those who had mild versions of the disease — continue to experience symptoms after their initial recovery. These people sometimes describe themselves as "long haulers" and the conditions have been called post-COVID-19 syndrome or "long COVID-19." These health issues are sometimes called post-COVID-19 conditions. They're generally considered to be effects of COVID-19 that persist for more than four weeks after you've been diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus. Older people and people with many serious medical conditions are the most likely to experience lingering COVID-19 symptoms, but even young, otherwise healthy people can feel unwell for weeks to months after infection. Common signs and symptoms that linger over time include:
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Memory, concentration or sleep problems
Muscle pain or headache
Fast or pounding heartbeat
Loss of smell or taste
Depression or anxiety
RE: Typhoid fever of a 6 year old boy!
@timir Antibiotic therapy is the only effective treatment for typhoid fever. Commonly prescribed antibiotics include:
Ciprofloxacin (Cipro). In the United States, doctors often prescribe this for adults who aren't pregnant. Another similar drug called ofloxacin also may be used. Unfortunately, many Salmonella typhi bacteria are no longer susceptible to antibiotics of this type, particularly strains picked up in Southeast Asia.
Azithromycin (Zithromax). This may be used if a person is unable to take ciprofloxacin or the bacteria are resistant to ciprofloxacin.
Ceftriaxone. This injectable antibiotic is an alternative in more-complicated or serious infections and for people who may not be candidates for ciprofloxacin, such as children.
These drugs can cause side effects, and long-term use can lead to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria
