    Incident CTS in a large pooled cohort study: associations obtained by a Job Exposure Matrix versus associations obtained from observed exposures.
    Occup Environ Med 2018 Mar 29. Epub 2018 Mar 29.
    Division of General Medical Sciences, Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis, St Louis, Missouri, USA.
    Background: There is growing use of a job exposure matrix (JEM) to provide exposure estimates in studies of work-related musculoskeletal disorders; few studies have examined the validity of such estimates, nor did compare associations obtained with a JEM with those obtained using other exposures.

    Objective: This study estimated upper extremity exposures using a JEM derived from a publicly available data set (Occupational Network, O*NET), and compared exposure-disease associations for incident carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) with those obtained using observed physical exposure measures in a large prospective study.

    Methods: 2393 workers from several industries were followed for up to 2. Read More

    Wellness interventions for anesthesiologists.
    Curr Opin Anaesthesiol 2018 Mar 19. Epub 2018 Mar 19.
    University of California, Irvine, Stanford University Graduate School of Business, Newport Coast, California, USA.
    Purpose Of Review: The review examines the different preventive measures that have been found to be useful to abolish or decrease the negative effects of burnout and increase resilience in anesthesiologists.

    Recent Findings: Studies in anesthesiology cite autonomy, control of the work environment, professional relationships, leadership, and organizational justice as the most important factors in job satisfaction. Factors such as difficulty in balancing personal and professional life, poor attention to wellness, work alcoholism, and genetic factors increase an individual's susceptibility to burnout. Read More

    Learning from Job: A Rare Genetic Disease and Lessons of Biblical Proportions.
    Rambam Maimonides Med J 2018 Jan 29;9(1). Epub 2018 Jan 29.
    Chief, Laboratory of Allergic Diseases, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, USA.
    Dominant negative mutations in STAT3, a critical signaling molecule and transcription factor in multiple organ systems, lead to a rare monogenic disease called the STAT3 loss-of-function, autosomal dominant hyper-IgE syndrome (STAT3LOF AD-HIES). The original name for this syndrome, Job's syndrome, was derived from the observation that patients had a propensity to develop skin boils, reminiscent of the affliction cast upon the biblical Job. Many fascinating observations have been made regarding the pathogenesis of the disease and the role STAT3 plays in human health and disease. Read More

    Incidence and predictors of acute coronary syndrome within a year following a negative stress test-a false sense of security: is routine screening any useful?
    Ann Transl Med 2018 Jan;6(1):13
    Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Cardiology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tennessee, USA.
    One of the major issues in management of the acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is classification of patients with atypical presentation who have low risk of having a coronary episode at presentation. There have been multiple studies on the stratification of high risk patients and medical management of such cases, however, there is a sub-class of patients who do not fit any category. In this paper, we have looked at the current literature on stratification of patients based on the study tools available and the risk of having a coronary episode during the following year.

    Hyper-IgE may be found under many pathological conditions. The role of IgE is essentially associated with the occurrence of allergic manifestations, which may be accompanied by an increase of their serum levels. Elevation of total IgE has also been reported in association with certain rare genetic immune deficiencies called hyper-IgE syndromes. Read More

Although, there have been various studies showing the association of vitamin D in rheumatoid arthritis and lupus in different populations, there have been limited studies on vitamin D and primary Sjögren's Syndrome (pSS). There are no studies on association of vitamin D and pSS from any tropical country including Indian subcontinent. Read More

    Evaluation of Chest Pain and Acute Coronary Syndromes.
    Cardiol Clin 2018 Feb 18;36(1):1-12. Epub 2017 Oct 18.
    Finance and Healthcare Enterprises, Department of Emergency Medicine, Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, 1025 Walnut Street, Suite 300, Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA.
    Chest pain is a common complaint in the emergency department, and it is the job of clinicians to rule out life-threatening diagnoses such as acute coronary syndrome. The history, physical examination, cardiac risk factors, electrocardiogram findings, and clinician judgment are often not enough to distinguish between causes of chest pain syndromes and to reliably rule out acute myocardial ischemia. New cardiac troponin assays, especially in conjunction with clinical decision algorithms, help clinicians rapidly exclude acute myocardial infarction. Read More

    Risk assessments using the Strain Index and the TLV for HAL, Part II: Multi-task jobs and prevalence of CTS.
    J Occup Environ Hyg 2018 Feb;15(2):157-166
    a Department of Occupational Science & Technology , University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee , Milwaukee , Wisconsin.
    The Strain Index (SI) and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) threshold limit value for hand activity level (TLV for HAL) have been shown to be associated with prevalence of distal upper-limb musculoskeletal disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). The SI and TLV for HAL disagree on more than half of task exposure classifications. Similarly, time-weighted average (TWA), peak, and typical exposure techniques used to quantity physical exposure from multi-task jobs have shown between-technique agreement ranging from 61% to 93%, depending upon whether the SI or TLV for HAL model was used.
