Longer Sleep Improves Cardiovascular Outcomes: Time to Make Sleep a Priority
Longer Sleep Improves Cardiovascular Outcomes: Time to Make Sleep a Priority Causal diagrams demonstrating potential relationships between genetic causes (G) of sleep duration, sleep duration (S), and a cardiovascular outcome (Y). (A) G is a valid instrumental variable for the relationship of S and Y, and can be used to estimated the S–Y association (orange arrow). (B) G has a pleiotropic association with Y. Because there are no unmeasured confounders (U) of the S–Y association, causal mediation analysis can be used to estimate both the direct (pleiotropic) association of G and Y, and the indirect effect via S. (C) The pleiotropic effect of G on Y can be measured by blocking the pathway through S, which is done by conditioning on levels of S. (D) The effect of S on Y independently of G can be measured by blocking pathways through G and C (measured confounders) by conditioning or using matching methods.

Certain Social, Behavioral Factors Associated With Diabetes and Hypertension Onset
Certain Social, Behavioral Factors Associated With Diabetes and Hypertension Onset Education and exercise may determine early start of diabetes and hypertension. Select behavioral and social risk factors were correlated with early onset of hypertension and diabetes, a prospective cohort study found. At 3.5 years of follow-up, among the patients without diabetes at baseline, 4% developed diabetes, while 6.4% of the cohort without baseline hypertension developed hypertension, reported Matthew Pantell, MD, MS, of the University of California, San Francisco, and colleagues.


THE FEATS OF DOCTORS DURING  THE GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR (WORLD WAR II)
THE FEATS OF DOCTORS DURING THE GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR (WORLD WAR II) During the war years, more than 700 thousand doctors and medical professionals worked at the front. At the end of the war, 12.5% of all these people were killed, and this figure seriously exceeds the losses in each individual military unit. But despite the danger, they never gave up, and in the most extreme situations only the iron will helped them to pull hundreds of people from the other world, and again to return to the battlefields. They achieved amazing results, and during the entire war, thanks to medical workers, about 72 percent of wounded soldiers and 90 percent of sick people, that is, approximately 17 million people, returned to the system.
