TL;DR: The results of the study showed a relatively high incidence of nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing hemodialysis, hence nurses must consider these problems by suitable measures to prevent the occurrence of the these unpleasant feelings in the patients during he modialysis.
Abstract: Introduction: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a rising problem across the world, including Iran. Most of the patients will require hemodialysis for survival. Despite the great progress has been made in the hemodialysis equipment, but it is still associated with complications. Nausea and vomiting are common complication of during hemodialysis, which leads to unpleasant feeling in patients. Objectives: This study aimed to determine incidence and severity of nausea and vomiting in a group of maintenance hemodialysis patients. Patients and Methods: This is a descriptive and analytical study on 60 hemodialysis patients of dialysis wards in Semnan University of Medical Sciences. Verbal Numeric Rating Scale (VNRS) and Korttila vomiting severity scale were used to measure the severity of nausea and vomiting during hemodialysis respectively. Results: In this study, the incidence of nausea and vomiting during hemodialysis were 28.3% and 11.7%, respectively. Meanwhile, the mean severity of nausea was 1.15 and the mean rank of vomiting was 2.08. Conclusion: The results of the study showed a relatively high incidence of nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing hemodialysis, hence nurses must consider these problems by suitable measures to prevent the occurrence of the these unpleasant feelings in the patients during hemodialysis.

TL;DR: According to DSMQ questionnaire in the present study, glucose monitoring, diet control, physical activity, and health care awareness in diabetic patients with heart disease were significantly reported to have been better than the other group with no cardiac problem.
Abstract: Background In general, the majority of diabetic patients suffering from a lack of capability in controlling different aspects of self-care have likely been prone to cardiovascular disease. To reduce the economic burden in societies and the rate of death on one hand, and improve life expectancy, on the other hand, it seems necessary to emphasize self-care training in diabetic patients. The purpose of this study was to determine comparison of self-care in cardiac and non-cardiac diabetic patients. Methods This descriptive-analytic study was carried out with 136 diabetic participants selected using random sampling and divided into two groups of 68 non-cardiac diabetic patients. Data were collected using a demographic and diabetic patient's self-management questionnaire (DSMQ). For the analysis of the data, SPSS16 was employed to check the significance test at the level of P<0.05. Results In this study, twenty-eight (41.2%) and forty (58.8%) of the participants in each group were male and female, respectively. Their ages spanned from (61.35±13.34) in non-cardiac diabetic group to (65.94±8.74) in cardiac diabetic participants. There were significant differences between two groups, specifically in patients with cardiac diabetic disease in different aspects, for instance, including glucose monitoring (F=4.977, P=0.027, η2=0.036), diet control (F=9.125, P=0.003, η2=0.064), physical activity (F=22.954, P=0.0001, η2=0.146) and health care awareness (F=31.366, P=0.0001, η2=0.19). Conclusion According to DSMQ questionnaire in the present study, glucose monitoring, diet control, physical activity, and health care awareness in diabetic patients with heart disease were significantly reported to have been better than the other group with no cardiac problem. Due to insufficient self-care in diabetic patients and some consequences such as poor health, heart disease as one of the complications of diabetes, hospital re-admission and heavy costs, the therapeutic team should be alerted to self-care training.

TL;DR: The HAC app appears to be functional to the physicians; however, it needs to improve its quality in terms of interactivity and effectiveness.
Abstract: Given the lack of literature on the contributing factors to adopt mobile applications (apps) among physicians and the crucial role of the quality of the apps in their widespread use, the aim of this study is using the Mobile App Rating Scale (MARS) to evaluate the quality of the head CT scan appropriateness criteria app(HAC app). It was developed to assist medical interns and residents in ordering head CT scans. MARS is internationally recognized as an app rating tool and consists of four objective and subjective quality subscales quality subscale. Although the overall quality score of the HAC app was favorable (82 out of 100), it had low quality scores in the "information" (73.37 out of 100) and the "engagement" (73.48 out of 100) subscales. The HAC app appears to be functional to the physicians; however, it needs to improve its quality in terms of interactivity and effectiveness.

TL;DR: The 11th edition of Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine welcomes Anthony Fauci to its editorial staff, in addition to more than 85 new contributors.
Abstract: The 11th edition of Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine welcomes Anthony Fauci to its editorial staff, in addition to more than 85 new contributors. While the organization of the book is similar to previous editions, major emphasis has been placed on disorders that affect multiple organ systems. Important advances in genetics, immunology, and oncology are emphasized. Many chapters of the book have been rewritten and describe major advances in internal medicine. Subjects that received only a paragraph or two of attention in previous editions are now covered in entire chapters. Among the chapters that have been extensively revised are the chapters on infections in the compromised host, on skin rashes in infections, on many of the viral infections, including cytomegalovirus and Epstein-Barr virus, on sexually transmitted diseases, on diabetes mellitus, on disorders of bone and mineral metabolism, and on lymphadenopathy and splenomegaly. The major revisions in these chapters and many

TL;DR: This report provides a well-formulated framework for decision-makers and health service planners to implement strategies for comprehensively managing chronic conditions and describes eight essential elements for improving and creating innovations in the care of chronic conditions.
Abstract: Chronic health conditions have been on the rise across the world. But few health care systems, have proved able to cope with managing this dramatic increase in chronic conditions. This report from the World Health Organization (WHO) provides a comprehensive framework for the prevention framework for the prevention and management of Chronic health conditions around the world. Chronic health conditions were defined in this report as “health problems that persist across time and require some degree of health care management”. This new report addresses how policy makers can take effective and innovative action to tackle these conditions. The report addresses the following issues: Exploring chronic conditions, including how and why they are increasing, what is their economic impact on patients, families, communities, and governments, and how to reduce their prevalence. The deficits in current systems of health to successfully manage chronic conditions because the acute care model dominates health care systems. The acute care model increased health care expenditures without improving populations health status. A new framework for health care systems to improve care for chronic conditions. This framework is comprised of fundamental components within the patient, health care organization and community, and policy levels. These components were described as “building blocks” that can be used to re-design a health care system to manage long-term health problems more effectively. The report describes eight essential elements for improving and creating innovations in the care of chronic conditions. These elements include: Supporting a shift in attitudes, so that decision­ makers, health workers and patients are aware that a shift in resources from the acute, episodic model of care is needed to meet the different of chronic conditions. Building political commitment to the process of preventing and managing chronic conditions. Avoiding fragmentation of services, to ensure that the care for chronic conditions is integrated. To align and analyze policies which affect chronic conditions, such as agricultural regulations, labor laws and health education. To use new, team care models and evidence-based skills for managing chronic conditions, worth more efficient use of health care personnel. To re-oriented Health care for chronic conditions around the patient and family. To support patients within their communities, because communities can fill a crucial gap in health services that are not provided by organized health care. To emphasize prevention, as many of the complications of chronic conditions can be prevented or reduced. This report provides a well-formulated framework for decision-makers and health service planners to implement strategies for comprehensively managing chronic conditions.

TL;DR: A non-parametric PLS-based approach to multi-group analysis: P LS-MGA is developed and applied to a marketing example of customer switching behavior in a liberalized electricity market.
Abstract: This paper adds to an often applied extension of Partial Least Squares (PLS) path modeling, namely the comparison of PLS estimates across subpopulations, also known as multi-group analysis. Existing PLS-based approaches to multi-group analysis have the shortcoming that they rely on distributional assumptions. This paper develops a non-parametric PLS-based approach to multi-group analysis: PLS-MGA. Both the existing approaches and the new approach are applied to a marketing example of customer switching behavior in a liberalized electricity market. This example provides first evidence of favorable operation characteristics of PLS-MGA
