baby's first breath could wait a minute if study strikes right cord

But today they are testing a theory that babies who do not breathe immediately after being born might be better off being left attached to the umbilical cord for a short time, keeping them anchored to the placenta with its natural supply of blood and oxygen.Researchers at the Royal Women’s Hospital and Monash University are embarking on a two-year randomised study involving 1000 babies, testing if infants might benefit from remaining connected to their mother for up to five minutes.Darcy Tucker today, aged almost 15 months.

demi lovato's 'sorry not sorry' lyrics

In the video for Demi Lovato’s unapologetic single “Sorry Not Sorry,” the pop star appears to be living her best post-breakup life. And that is very evident in the song's lyrics.The single has peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it still continues to be a catchy comeback song.

nation's public cord blood banks provide benefits, despite drop in use, study fi

The nation's public umbilical cord blood banks provide benefits that far outweigh their costs and should continue to receive federal support, even though use of cord blood stem cells from the banks has been declining, according to a new RAND Corporation study.Federal regulators can better support the 19 public cord banks by standardizing the way the organizations are paid and by encouraging collection practices that increase the diversity of the cord blood collected, according to the report. "While public cord blood banks are having some trouble competing in the medical marketplace, they remain an important resource for patients and the research community," said Kandice Kapinos, lead author of the study and an economist at RAND, a nonprofit research organization. "There are strategies avai

the best way to deal with your stand mixer's cord

A lot of small appliances are ugly and need to be hidden away in a cabinet. But if you are among the lucky ones who have a beautiful KitchenAid stand mixer, you know that baby's meant for display! The color! The sculptural feel! Plus, if you keep it out, you're just that much more likely to start spontaneously baking cupcakes, right?
While the stand mixer is great-looking, the long electrical cord, however, is not. You don't want to leave the machine plugged in all the time (boo, vampire power!) and you don't want the cord all piled up at the base of the mixer, either. What to do about this?
Steal this idea, which we found over at Dreaming in DIY. All you need is a pack of Command Cord Bundlers.

seth meyers' wife gave birth in the lobby of their building

It seems Seth Meyers’ new baby boy shares his dad’s dramatic flair.The Late Night with Seth Meyers host, 44, revealed during Monday’s show that his wife gave birth to their second son, named Axel Strahl, a day earlier in the lobby of their apartment building.Meyers began his opening segment by recalling that his first son was nearly born in an Uber two-years prior, before joking, “Move over that story, because that’s so normal compared to what happened yesterday.”On Sunday, Meyers’ wife Alexi Ashe began having contractions, and Meyers called an Uber. However, Ashe was adamant that the car wouldn’t arrive in time. “My wife just says, ‘I can’t get in that car. I’m going to have the baby right now. The baby is coming,'” Meyers said. He added that he looked at his wife and it was “like someone

most patients with unknown spinal cord disease later given specific diagnosis, s

ROCHESTER, Minn. -- A study by Mayo Clinic researchers found that most patients with suspected spinal cord inflammation of unknown cause have an alternative, specific diagnosis. The research is published in Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology."Our review draws attention to the critical need to properly diagnose spinal cord disease to initiate appropriate therapy early on and avoid unnecessary and potentially harmful treatments," says B. Mark Keegan, M.D., Mayo Clinic neurologist and senior author.Of 226 adult patients referred to Mayo Clinic for spinal cord inflammation of unknown cause between Dec. 1, 2010, to Dec. 31, 2015:Diagnosed correctly: 41 patients (18 percent)

pregnant doctor delivers baby just before giving birth

A doctor in Kentucky delivered a baby while covering for her hospital's on-call obstetrician – and then promptly give birth herself.Amanda Hess, an OBGYN at the Frankfort Regional Hospital, told WKYT that the on-call doctor was on his way back to the hospital, so there was no time to spare when the patient, Leah Halliday Johnson, was dilated.“I had actually taken a call the day before, so I thought really that I was working up to the last minute. But this was literally 'til the last second,” Dr. Hess told LEX 18.She added that her own contractions started just minutes after taking the call.“I just put on another gown to cover up my backside and put on some boots over my shoes, to keep from getting any fluid and all that stuff on me, and went down to her room and I knew her," Hess told WKYT

electrical implant reduces 'invisible' symptoms of man's spinal cord injury

An experimental treatment that sends electrical currents through the spinal cord has improved "invisible" yet debilitating side effects for a B.C. man with a spinal cord injury. A diving accident six years ago left Isaac Darrel, of Langley, British Columbia, with a spinal cord injury. Side effects of the injury include dizziness, fluctuations in blood pressure and changes in bladder and bowel function. Darrel made the decision to have electrodes surgically implanted over his spinal cord in 2016 to test out a treatment known as epidural stimulation in the hopes of improving some of the side effects. A case study about his experiences was published today in JAMA Neurology."Mobility issues or paralysis are the most visible consequences of a spinal cord injury but as a clinician, I know that m

hospital staff shortages blamed for baby girl's death

“No one was in the room besides my husband,” Mrs Amone said.An autopsy report dated April 22, 2015 said the baby was born at 10.03pm and “received by dad in absence of a midwife”.Mrs Amone said hospital staff told her the baby died after its lung collapsed. The cause of death on the baby’s death certificate says it was unknown. The following year, the autopsy stated the baby’s death was “most likely due to the toxic effects of pethidine”.Mrs Amone is questioning whether the baby would have survived had she not been given pethidine shortly before the child’s birth and had she had not been left alone in the birthing room.Just before and immediately after the baby was born, Mr Amone said he pressed the buzzer for help.“I pressed the buzzer and no one came. I tried to tell [Sharon] to hold on…

Her results showed that bowel care, followed by sexual function, bladder function and pain were of key concern. Surprisingly, one of the lowest-ranked concerns was using a wheelchair for mobilit

the legend of zelda: breath of the wild review – the grandest adventure yet

I’m just going to admit it right off the bat: I haven’t been on board the Breath of the Wild hype train this entire time. When Nintendo first started showing the game off, alongside the promises it made about a truly open world and a reinvention for the Zelda franchise, I was skeptical. I didn’t think Nintendo could deliver on its promises. After all, for the past 20 years, Zelda has been anything but open world – aside from a slight detour from the tried-and-true formula in A Link Between Worlds on the 3DS. I thought, if anything, Breath of the Wild would just be a console version of that.The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildDeveloper: Nintendo EPDPublisher: NintendoPlatforms: Switch (version tested), Wii UAfter 80 hours clocked in Breath of the Wild with no end in sight, I can now say

home remedies to cure bad breath

Halitosis is the scientific term for the cringe-inducing condition called bad breath. Having bad breath is such an embarrassing, confidence-sapping problem. Those with bad breath have to constantly worry about it offending other people. There is a huge social stigma of sorts associated with bad breath. The first step towards tackling it is to understand what causes it.So What Causes Bad Breath?More often than not bad breath is caused by the accumulation of plaque or by decaying food trapped between teeth. While this is the case in a majority of people, chronic bad breath can also be caused due to some health issue, a poor diet, or other lifestyle choices.Bad oral hygiene is a definite cause of bad breath. Apart from that obvious cause, bad breath can also be a result of a crash diet or a p

woman, 22, who left baby in light shaft, being treated for shock | news

A 22-year-old woman who allegedly told the police that she left her newly-born infant in the light shaft of the Athens apartment block where she lives shortly after living birth was receiving treatment for shock in the capital's Alexandra hospital on Wednesday.According to investigators, the woman told police that she gave birth in the bathtub of her home in Nea Smyrni last Friday, used a pair of scissors to cut the umbilical cord herself and threw the placenta in the trash.She subsequently wrapped the infant in a sheet and left it at the bottom of the light shaft, according to police who found the baby's body on Saturday. A coroner concluded that the baby boy, which was found wrapped in a sheet with the umbilical cord still attached, probably died due to pathological causes following its

the long-awaited youtube tv is here

We’ve talked about this up-and-coming cord-cutting solution before, so here are the basics. For $35 per month, you get 40 channels that include ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, regional sports networks, and other popular cable channels. You also get what looks like the best feature yet for cord-cutters, an unlimited cloud DVR. The service will be available on iOS and other platforms, but not Apple TV. At least not for now, but maybe Apple TV support will come in the future. We aren’t holding our breath, though, since Google might prefer to push the service to the TV set solely by way of its own Chromecast device.

genes that aid spinal cord healing in lamprey also present in humans, mbl team d

Woods Hole, Mass.-- Many of the genes involved in natural repair of the injured spinal cord of the lamprey are also active in the repair of the peripheral nervous system in mammals, according to a study by a collaborative group of scientists at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) and other institutions. This is consistent with the possibility that in the long term, the same or similar genes may be harnessed to improve spinal cord injury treatments."We found a large overlap with the hub of transcription factors that are driving regeneration in the mammalian peripheral nervous system," says Jennifer Morgan, director of the MBL's Eugene Bell Center for Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering, one of the authors of the study published this week in Scientific Reports.Lampreys are jawless

flu virus can be spread by simply breathing: study

Being around a random sneeze or cough during flu season is enough to strike paranoia into one’s heart, but it turns out it takes far less to potentially infect you. Researchers with the University of Maryland and other institutions are behind a newly published study that details how easily the influenza virus can be transmitted. Sneezing and coughing can spread the virus, of course, but so can simply breathing.The research was detailed in a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, where it details the process that found flu virus transmission risk. Coughing is problematic, as far as spreading the virus is concerned, but so is simply exhaling. To determine this, the researchers monitored the influenza virus in volunteers’ breath.The researchers gathered 218 na

study: new exercises help athletes manage dangerous breathing disorder

A novel set of breathing techniques developed at National Jewish Health help athletes overcome vocal cord dysfunction and improve performance during high-intensity exercise. Vocal cord dysfunction, now also referred to as exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO), has been shown to improve for athletes after being trained to use the new techniques. The findings were published in the September 16, 2017 online issue of the Journal of Voice.
"These new breathing techniques could represent a breakthrough for athletes seeking help with breathing during training and competition," said J. Tod Olin, MD, senior author of the study, developer of the novel breathing techniques and Associate Professor of medicine at National Jewish Health in Denver, CO.
EILO is characterized by involuntary and

loss of spinal nerve fibers not the only cause of disability in multiple scleros

It is commonly thought that in MS, the loss of axons (nerve fibres) contributes to the chronic disability found in many patients. This has led to the wide use of MRI to measure the cross sectional area of the spinal cord in order to predict disability. But researchers from Queen Mary University of London have now sampled spinal cords of thirteen people with MS and five healthy controls, and found that spinal cord cross sectional area is not a good predictor of axonal loss. Lead researcher Klaus Schmierer said: "The lack of association between axonal loss and spinal cord cross sectional area significantly changes our understanding of chronic disability in MS. "The nature of the spinal cord as a highly organised and largely autonomous network needs to be appreciated. We need to identify othe
