Got Milk? – zebras stealing and sharing milk

by Wayne Linklater in Perissodactyla

Lactating and nursing is a major investment by mothers in their offspring. Milk is nutrient-rich and imposes extreme demands on the mother. It seems intuitive, therefore, that mothers should be very careful to make sure their offspring benefit from their milk and none is wasted. For the same reason it seems intuitive that young should …Read More... Read more »

Nurses on Sept 11: 'there were no patients'

by CxLxMx in cxlxmxrx

No doubt many nurses today are remembering the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. I wasn't a healthcare professional at the time. I had moved back home and was trying to figure out my next move after a web start-up I had been involved with went belly-up. My father was at the university, my mother was gardening, and my brother was at school. I got up and wandered around the house, read the newspaper. For some reason, I turned on the TV to flip through the channels and c........ Read more »

2 liter bolus of fat: no hemodynamic changes

by CxLxMx in cxlxmxrx

I bring to your attention a case report of a patient who received an accidental overdose of 2 liters intravenous lipid infusion and apparently suffered no ill cardiac effects. That is, the patient received fat directly into the blood stream in a quantity equal to a family-sized bottle of soda and didn't have a "heart attack."Just as certain medications bind to proteins, which binding in the blood stream changes their availability to other tissues, certain medications have an affinity for lipids........

Open letter to ANA on genetic testing

by CxLxMx in cxlxmxrx

In reporting on the recent March 8-9 meeting of the MCG Panel of the FDA's advisory committee, I find it problematic that I have no recording or minutes of the meeting. Of the five W's of reporting, I am missing the vital Who and hoW components. So, I was taken by surprise yesterday as I was working on my call to nursing organizations to submit comments to federal docket FDA-2011-N-006 in support of patients' rights to view their own genetic information. It turns out the American Nurses' Assoc........ Read more »

"sane and rational": an approach to swine flu

by CxLxMx in cxlxmxrx

Despite the deaths, the swine flu has not been without its humorous side. For example, in Afghanistan, Kabul Zoo quarantined that nation's only pig. The pig was a gift from China, which has taken the slightly less humorous action of quarantining a number of visitors from the Americas. Where does public health wisdom lie?Writing in Virology Journal, William R. Gallagher of the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center has reviewed the situation up to the current time and makes recommen........ Read more »
