High-Dose Ketamine Infusion for Neuropathic Pain in Critical Care SettingsNo abstract availableInsulin Therapy in Type 2 DiabetesBackground: Since the discovery of insulin, it was the only drug available for the treatment of diabetes until the development of sulfonylureas and biguanides 50 years later. But even with the availability of oral glucose-lowering drugs, insulin supplementation was often needed to achieve good glucose control in type 2 diabetes. Insulin NPH became the basal insulin therapy...

Fibrinolytic shutdown diagnosed with rotational thromboelastometry represents a moderate form of coagulopathy associated with transfusion requirement and mortality: A retrospective analysisBACKGROUND Viscoelastic techniques have made it possible to describe specific fibrinolytic phenotypes (physiological, hyperfibrinolysis and shutdown) and to establish a relationship of these phenotypes with outcome. However, there remains a debate as to whether shutdown is a state of hypercoagulability or rather...

Death rattle: reassuring harbinger of imminent death or a perfect example of inadequacies in evidence-based practicePurpose of review Death is the inevitable consequence of life. Although clinicians are unlikely to accurately pinpoint when death is likely to occur in the people they care for, the death in a person with a diagnosis of malignant and nonmalignant tends to involve a period of predictable progressive clinical and functional deterioration. During this time, it is common for death rattle...

Respecting voices: how the co-creation of teaching and learning can support academic staff, underrepresented students, and equitable practicesAbstractAnalyses of how staff and student voices are, or are not, respected in higher education typically unfold in separate conversations. In this discussion, I use narrative analysis of several sources—primary research data, informal participant feedback, and participants' published essays—to present a case study of how the co-creation of teaching and learning...

Characterization of Glucokinase Catalysis from a Pseudo-Dimeric ViewAbstractGlucose phosphorylation by glucokinase exhibits a sigmoidal dependency on substrate concentration regardless of its simple structure. Dimorph mechanism suggested the existence of two enzymatic states with different catalytic properties, which has been shown to be plausible by structural analysis. However, the dimorph mechanism gives rise to a complicated or non-explicit non-closed mathematical form. It is neither feasible...

Generalization of extent analysis method for solving multicriteria decision making problems involving intuitionistic fuzzy numbersAbstractAnalytic hierarchy process (AHP) is a widely used multicriteria decision making method. Chang's extent analysis method (EAM) is appeared as a very popular fuzzy AHP approach. The aim of this paper is to generalize the EAM in intuitionistic fuzzy settings for effective modeling of imprecision and uncertainty inherent in nature. In this paper, special triangular...

Clozapine-associated secondary antibody deficiencyPurpose of review Clozapine has recently been described as a novel cause of secondary antibody deficiency (SAD), associated with long-term therapy. Here we critically review the evidence linking clozapine use to an increased infection risk, describe immunological alterations, and discuss potential mechanisms. Recent findings Individuals with schizophrenia are at two to five times more likely to develop pneumonia than the general population, in particular,...
