Study Finds IV Steroids for Nerve Blocks Associated With Decreased Need for Pain Medication

A study conducted by researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center found that IV dexamethasone did not prolong nerve blocks but did decrease the amount of pain medicine needed and extended the time before the first pain medicine was requested.

Reducing Radiation Could Safely Cut Breast Cancer Treatment Costs

More than half of older women with early stage breast cancer received more radiation therapy than what might be medically necessary, adding additional treatment and health care costs, according to a study led by Duke Cancer Institute researchers.

In Times of Plenty, Penguin Parents Keep Feeding Their Grown Offspring

A research team reports that fully grown Galapagos penguins who have fledged -- or left the nest -- continue to beg their parents for food. And sometimes, probably when the bounty of the sea is plentiful, parents oblige and feed their adult offspring.

Acetone Experiences Leidenfrost Effect, No Hotplate Needed

Researchers in Japan noticed that acetone droplets not mixing with the water, because of their own form of the Leidenfrost effect, more commonly observed in water droplets on solid hot surfaces. They studied the fluid dynamics of this interaction, and of the self-propulsion common to the Leidenfrost effect (which has its own name, Marangoni effect) to learn more about the underlying mechanics. Their surprising results appear this week in the journal Physics of Fluids.

Six Ways to Prevent Toenail Fungus

Although fungal nail infections are usually painless, the condition can be unsightly. If you get nail fungus – more common on the toenails than the fingernails – your symptoms could include yellow or brown nails, or nails that lift up from the nail bed or split or crumble. Without treatment, say dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology, nail fungus can worsen and make it painful to wear shoes.

Scientists Predict Crime Knowledge States in the Human Brain

Scientists and lawyers speak different languages, but there is common ground. Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute scientists working in a multi-institutional team with legal authorities have discovered that brain imaging can determine whether someone is acting in a state of knowledge about a crime.

New Study Finds Nursery Product-Related Injuries on the Rise Among Young Children

Parents of young children use nursery products daily but these products are associated with injury more often than you might think. A new study from the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital found that about every 8 minutes in the U.S., a child three years of age or younger is treated in a hospital emergency-department for a nursery product-related injury – which is approximately 66,000 children each year.
