Acupuncture Training May Lessen Burnout Symptoms
Researchers found a link between acupuncture training and decreased physician depersonalization, according to findings reported in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine. “Primary care physicians seek to practice acupuncture as a way to provide options for their patients, to focus on patients’ whole-person health, and to expand their knowledge and skills,” Paul F. Crawford III, MD, of the department of family medicine at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Services, and colleagues wrote.
Deep Learning Can Make Reliable Coma Outcome Prediction
After cardiac arrest and resuscitation, part of the patients will be in a coma and treated at an intensive care unit. Their prospects are uncertain. What is needed to get an outcome prediction that is reliable? Researchers of the University of Twente and the 'Medisch Spectrum Twente' hospital, both in Enschede, The Netherlands, developed a learning network that is capable of interpreting EEG-patterns. It can make a reliable outcome prediction, and thus forms a valuable extra source of information. The researcher present their approach in Critical Care Medicine journal.
