Surviving Ebola: A historical cohort study of Ebola mortality and survival in Sierra Leone 2014-2015.

PLoS One 2018 27;13(12):e0209655. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Save the Children International, Kerry Town, Sierra Leone.

Background: While a number of predictors for Ebola mortality have been identified, less is known about post-viral symptoms. The identification of acute-illness predictors for post-viral symptoms could allow the selection of patients for more active follow up in the future, and those in whom early interventions may be beneficial in the long term. Studying predictors of both mortality and post-viral symptoms within a single cohort of patients could also further our understanding of the pathophysiology of survivor sequelae. Read More

Ayhan Bilgiç

Clin Neuropharmacol 2019 Jan/Feb;42(1):17-18

Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Meram School of Medicine, Necmettin Erbakan University, Konya, Turkey.

Hiccup is a sudden-onset repeated involuntary and spasmodic contraction of the diaphragm and intercostal muscle accompanied by laryngeal closure, generating the characteristic inspiratory sound and discomfort. Various factors including drugs may trigger the hiccups. There are some reports regarding the possible links between psychotropic agents that can affect the dopaminergic system and the triggering of hiccup; however, to our knowledge, there are no data regarding sertraline-induced hiccup.

Medullar impairment resolves hiccups.

J Thorac Dis 2018 Jun;10(6):3622-3626

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Fukuoka University, Fukuoka, Japan.

Background: In a previous article we reported the time that hiccups stop as the instant when CO levels in both expiratory gas (EtCO) and inspiratory gas (InspCO) reach approximately 50 mmHg. To support our findings, in this article we aim to clarify the precise values of the CO level in arterial blood (PaCO) and venous blood (PvCO) during plastic bag rebreathing.

Methods: A healthy male volunteer was asked to perform a rebreathing experiment using a 20 L air-filled plastic bag. Read More
