The Medical Minute: Lawn Mower Injuries Often Prove Severe

The buzz of lawn mowers signals the arrival of spring as much as singing birds and kids playing outside. Yet it’s easy to forget that the machines can cause serious damage if not used safely.

In 2015, lawn mowers were responsible for sending more than 68,000 adults and about 13,000 children to emergency departments nationwide.

“We need to remind people that these are dangerous machines, and the consequences are devastating,” said Mariano Garay, a fourth year medical student at Penn State College of Medicine.

Garay has studied the subject of lawn mower injuries in children and found that the number of injuries statewide has remained about the same during the past decade.

A 12-year study of 199 patients ages 18 and younger from 2002 through 2013 found that more than half of those who were admitted to a hospital with injuries from lawn mowers ended up having an amputation of some sort –

Three Little Letters That Could Make You A Big Hero At The Beach This Summer: CPR

Imagine yourself relaxing at the beach when the worst happens — someone notices a boy in trouble in the water. In the mad rush to get him to shore, you have two choices: wait for emergency responders to arrive or start administering CPR yourself.

Your decision could be the difference between a good neurological recovery or a coma, brain death or even death for a drowning victim in cardiac arrest, according to a new study led by Joshua Tobin, MD, associate professor of clinical anesthesiology at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC), published in the issue of Resuscitation.

“What we found is that when bystanders begin CPR before emergency personnel arrive, the person has a higher chance of leaving the hospital and leading a life reasonably close to the one they had before the drowning,” Tobin says.

Drowning is a significant public health issue that

Study Links Physician Age To Patient Mortality Risk

Patients treated by older hospital-based internists known as hospitalists are somewhat more likely to die within a month of admission than those treated by younger physicians, according to the results of a study led by researchers at Harvard Medical School and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

The findings published in BMJ, reveal the largest gap in patient mortality—1.3 percentage points—between hospitalists 40 and younger and those 60 and older.

The researchers note that the absolute difference in death rates was modest yet clinically meaningful—10.8% among patients treated by physicians 40 and younger, compared with 12.1% among those treated by physicians 60 and older. That difference translates into one additional patient death for every 77 patients treated by physicians 60 and older, compared with those treated by doctors 40 and younger.

“This difference is not merely st

Opening Up The Playbook

As cancer treatments become more personalized, professional care extends beyond therapy for the disease itself. Though today’s treatments are highly effective for many cancers, they can also bring side effects that can significantly affect a patient’s quality of life, either for the duration of treatment or sometimes, even beyond. It’s a reality that has forced many cancer centers to add supportive services to their care plans and integrate them into their specific treatments. Support groups have long been common to help patients deal with the emotional and spiritual effects of cancer treatment, but more and more, cancer care experts are learning there are also ways to help deal with the physical toll. Recent research led by a team at Penn Medicine showed the benefits of yoga during prostate cancer treatment, and that only scratches the surface. Another frontier of this supportive care c
