Author Affiliations: Healthcare Administration Program, Lewis College of Business, Marshall University (Mrs Bakhamis); Department of Marketing and International Business, Monmouth University (Dr Paul); and Lewis College of Business, Marshall University (Drs Smith and Coustasse), South Charleston, West Virginia.

The number of registered nurses (RNs) in the United States is roughly 3 times the number of physicians and surgeons, making RNs a critically important component of the US health care system. Registered nurse burnout-the state of emotional exhaustion in which the individual feels overwhelmed by work to the point of feeling fatigued, unable to face the demands of the job, and unable to engage with others-is a real concern, having been reported in many hospitals. The purpose of this research was to examine the causes and consequences of burnout syndrome among RNs in US hospitals and its role in the RN shortage in hospitals. Read More

Humoral immunodeficiencies: conferred risk of infections and benefits of immunoglobulin replacement therapy.

Transfusion 2018 Dec;58 Suppl 3:3056-3064

Division of Clinical Immunology, Department of Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York.

Primary immunodeficiency (PID) diseases result from genetic defects of the immune system that increase a patient's susceptibility to infections. The types of infections that occur in patients with PID diseases are dictated largely by the nature of the immunodeficiency, which can be defined by dysfunction of cellular or humoral defenses. An increasing number of PID diseases, including those with both cellular and humoral defects, have antibody deficiency as a major feature, and as a result can benefit from immunoglobulin replacement therapy.

Hypothenar or thenar hammer syndrome (HHS) and hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) are diseases caused by acute or chronic trauma to the upper extremities. Since both diseases are generally related to occupation and are recognised as occupational diseases in most countries, vascular physicians need to be able to distinguish between the two entities and differentiate them from other diagnoses.

Hyper IgE syndromes: clinical and molecular characteristics.

Immunol Cell Biol 2018 Sep 28. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Seattle Children's Research Institute, Seattle, Washington, USA.

Hyper IgE syndromes comprise a group of rare primary immunodeficiency disorders characterized by a triad of atopic dermatitis, recurrent skin and lung infections along with elevated IgE levels. Job syndrome or autosomal dominant hyper IgE syndrome because of heterozygous loss-of-function mutations with dominant negative effect in signal transducer and activator of transcription-3 is the prototype of these disorders. However, several other genetically characterized immunodeficiency disorders have been identified over the past decade and joined the umbrella of hyper IgE syndromes including autosomal recessive mutations in the DOCK8, ZNF431 and PGM3 genes and heterozygous mutations with dominant negative effect in the CARD11 gene.

Gender, Marital Status, and Children as Risk Factors for Burnout in Nurses: A Meta-Analytic Study.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2018 09 25;15(10). Epub 2018 Sep 25.

Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Granada, Avenida de la Ilustración N. 60, 18016 Granada, Spain.

The correlation between the burnout syndrome and sociodemographic variables in nursing professionals has been widely studied though research results are contradictory. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of gender, marital status, and children on the dimensions of the burnout syndrome (emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment) in nursing professionals, as measured with the Maslach Burnout Inventory. The search was performed in May 2018 in the next databases: CINAHL, CUIDEN, Dialnet, Psicodoc, ProQuest Platform, OVID Platform, and Scopus with the search equation ("Maslach Burnout Inventory" OR "MBI") AND "nurs*", without using any search restriction.

CMME, service du professeur Philip Gorwood, hôpital Sainte-Anne, 1, rue Cabanis, 75014 Paris, France. Electronic address:

Although burnout syndrome was first described clinically about sixty years ago, it hasn't yet found its place in the classification of mental disorders. The wide range of clinical signs and aetiopathogenic theories has certainly contributed to this situation. There are different clinical forms of burnout and various therapeutic strategies. Read More

Successful treatment of severe refractory autoimmune hemolytic anemia after hematopoietic stem cell transplant with abatacept.

Transfusion 2018 09 4;58(9):2122-2127. Epub 2018 Sep 4.

Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, Phoenix Children's Hospital, Phoenix, Arizona.

Background: After hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is a known and fairly common complication. It is often refractory to conventional therapies including corticosteroids, intravenous immunoglobulin, splenectomy, and the more recently described use of monoclonal antibodies. The high morbidity associated with these severe persistent cases elucidates the gaps in alternative therapies available for treatment. Read More

The impact of occupational psychological hazards and metabolic syndrome on the 8-year risk of cardiovascular diseases-A longitudinal study.

PLoS One 2018 27;13(8):e0202977. Epub 2018 Aug 27.

Division of occupational medicine, Division of fanily medicine, Department of Family and Community Medicine, Tri-Service General Hospital, National Defense Medical Center, Taipei, Taiwan, Republic of China.

There was little information concerning the combined effect of occupational psychosocial hazards such as long working hours, high job stress, and high fatigue on the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases (CVD). The aim of this study was to investigate the interaction among occupational psychosocial hazards and the impact of metabolic syndrome (MetS) on the risk of CVD among bus drivers. The Taiwan Bus Driver Cohort Study involving 1014 professional drivers was established in 2005 and comprehensively studied. Read More

Differences in Metabolic Syndrome Prevalence by Employment Type and Sex.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2018 08 21;15(9). Epub 2018 Aug 21.

Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul 06591, Korea.

Workers may sometimes do the same work, but differ in their risk of health-related problems depending on whether the employment type is standard or non-standard. Furthermore, even with similar job and employment types, there may be differences in risk factors for health-related problems depending on sex. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) by employment type and sex using data from the Fifth Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES Ⅴ) (2010⁻2012) and KNHANES Ⅵ (2013⁻2015) conducted by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Human hyper-IgE syndrome: singular or plural?

Mamm Genome 2018 08 9;29(7-8):603-617. Epub 2018 Aug 9.

St Giles Laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases, Rockefeller Branch, Rockefeller University, New York, NY, USA.

Spectacular progress has been made in the characterization of human hyper-IgE syndrome (HIES) over the last 50 years. HIES is a primary immunodeficiency defined as an association of atopy in a context of very high serum IgE levels, characteristic bacterial and fungal diseases, low-level clinical and biological inflammation, and various non-hematopoietic developmental manifestations. Somewhat arbitrarily, three disorders were successively put forward as the underlying cause of HIES: autosomal dominant (AD) STAT3 deficiency, the only disorder corresponding to the original definition of HIES, and autosomal recessive (AR) DOCK8 and PGM3 deficiencies, in which atopy and high serum IgE levels occur in a context of manifestations not seen in patients with typical HIES.
