Respirol Case Rep 2020 Aug 29;8(6):e00605. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

Division of Pulmonary Medicine Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center New York NY USA.

Hiccups are common; however, hiccups caused by sarcoidosis have rarely been reported. An unusual case involving a patient with persistent hiccups possibly caused by hilar/mediastinal lymph node enlargement due to sarcoidosis prompted us to perform a literature search. Eight case reports relating hiccups to sarcoidosis were found and in only one case were the hiccups thought to be due to thoracic lymphadenopathy (LAD). Read More

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and thyroid storm (TS) are severe metabolic and endocrine disorders. Both usually manifest with multiple systemic clinical signs and symptoms, and digestive symptoms, such as nausea and vomiting, are most common in these patients. Moreover, the presence of a concurrent severe or rare complication may worsen the condition or even cause death due to misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, or inappropriate treatment. Read More

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 May;99(20):e19973

Harbin Medical University Cancer Hospital, Harbin, China.

Background: Hiccups are involuntary contractions of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles, which lead to sudden contractions of the glottis. CAM, such as acupuncture is commonly used and stimulation of the vagus nerve and interference with phrenic nerve conduction are also used to treat hiccups. However, there is little evidence on the effectiveness of acupuncture for cancer-related hiccups. Read More

Effect of lower esophageal gastric tube implantation in postoperative enteral nutritional support in patients with laryngeal cancer: A study protocol for a randomized controlled trial.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Apr;99(16):e19771

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, People's Hospital of De Yang City, Deyang City, Sichuan, China.

Background: For a long time, postoperative nutritional support for laryngeal cancer patients has depended on the gastric tube for enteral nutrition. Silica gel gastric tube is often used in clinical practice; however, the gastric tube placed in the conventional depth often leads to various complications in the stomach, thus damaging the nutritional status of patients and leading to the poor prognosis.

Methods/design: A total of 80 patients with laryngeal cancer in otolaryngology, head and neck surgery department of Deyang people's hospital from May 2020 to April 2022 will be selected and randomly divided into control group and experimental group according to the numerical table. Read More

University of Rochester Medical Center, Department of Neurology, 601 Elmwood Avenue, Box 673, Rochester, NY, United States.

Background: Aquaporin-4 IgG (AQ4-IgG)-neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) is an autoimmune inflammatory CNS disease that is predominantly characterized by severe relapses of optic neuritis and longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis (LETM). Women are disproportionately affected by AQ4-NMOSD, usually with disease onset occurring between the ages of 35-45. This has significant implications during pregnancy, as disease activity in NMOSD does not remit during gestation. Read More

Singultus, paper-bag ventilation, and hypercapnia.

J Hist Neurosci 2020 Jul-Sep;29(3):286-298. Epub 2020 Jan 8.

College of Medicine and Health Sciences, Khalifa University of Science and Technology , Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Sir Louis Francis Knuthsen (1869-1957), the physician who painstakingly listed almost all treatments known for obstinate hiccough, ascribes the holding of breath method to Philip Henry Pye-Smith, FRS (1840-1914), consultant at Guy's Hospital in London. In fact, the strategy is much older and was mentioned by greats such as Francis Bacon (1561-1626), Aristoteles (384-322 BC), and Eryximachus (late-fifth century bce). Hypoventilation to reduce central nervous system excitability was used in antiquity as evidenced by Cyriacus' treatment of Artemia, the daughter of Emperor Diocletian (≈ 244-311). Read More
