Hospital readmissions following severe sepsis often preventable

In an analysis of about 2,600 hospitalizations for severe sepsis, readmissions within 90 days were common, and approximately 40 percent occurred for diagnoses that could potentially be prevented or treated early to avoid hospitalization, according to a study in the March 10 issue of JAMA.

No significant difference in outcomes found for surgical vs non-surgical treatment of displaced fracture of upper arm

Among patients with a displaced fracture in the upper arm near the shoulder (proximal humeral), there was no significant difference between surgical treatment and nonsurgical treatment in patient-reported outcomes over two years following the fracture, results that do not support the trend of increased surgery for patients with this type of fracture, according to a study in the March 10 issue of JAMA.

Methane in Arctic lake traced to groundwater from seasonal thawing

Global warming may ramp up the flow of methane from groundwater into Arctic lakes, allowing more of the potent greenhouse gas to bubble out into the atmosphere, according to a new study led by researchers at UC Santa Cruz.

Single protein spectroscopy from a diamond

Fazhan Shi and colleagues have used a defect inside a diamond to detect an electron spin resonance signal from a single protein at room temperature. Like a medical MRI for visualizing tissues in the body, such a technique could help researchers learn more about the structure and dynamics of all kinds of biomolecules.

Multiple images of a supernova to probe general relativity

Researchers using the Hubble Space Telescope have found four images of a distant supernova, its light bending around a massive galaxy located between the supernova and the telescope. They suggest that this system of curved light could be used to test Einstein’s theory of relativity and measure the rate of cosmic expansion in the universe.

What determines support for a democracy?

The more time a person lives under a democracy, the more likely she or he is to support democracy. That’s the conclusion reached by Nicola Fuchs-Schündeln and Matthias Schündeln, who studied the political preference using observations from 380,000 individuals in 104 countries.

Paint-like coatings repel spills, scratches, and more

A new paint-like coating added to the surface of soft or hard materials is strong and self-cleaning, repelling liquids while resisting the scratches and rubbing that break down other similar coatings. The new coating even works when exposed to oil, which could make it especially useful for mechanical parts like gears that need lubrication.

The oldest fossil of Homo on the books

The analysis of a partial hominin mandible with five of its teeth still intact suggests that the Homo genus had diverged by about 2.8 million years ago almost half a million years earlier than previous evidence had indicated. The fossil, known as LD 350-1, was unearthed from the Ledi-Geraru research area at the Afar Regional State in Ethiopia in 2013, and researchers say that it combines primitive Australopithecus traits with more modern Homo features.

Oxygen breathes new life into cancer-killing immune cells

Breathing in more oxygen can weaken tumors’ defenses against cancer-killing immune cells, according to a new study in mice. The results suggest that supplemental oxygen, widely used in hospitals, can be combined with immunotherapy to more effectively treat cancer.

Long-term follow-up of benign thyroid nodules shows favorable prognosis

After five years of follow-up, a majority of asymptomatic, benign thyroid nodules exhibited no significant change in size, or actually decreased in size, and diagnoses of thyroid cancer were rare, according to a study in the March 3 issue of JAMA.

Findings question benefit of administering sedatives before surgery for patients receiving general anesthesia

A randomized trial finds that among patients undergoing elective surgery under general anesthesia, receiving the sedative lorazepam before surgery, compared with placebo or no premedication, did not improve the self-reported patient experience the day after surgery, but was associated with longer time till removal off a breathing tube (extubation) and a lower rate of early cognitive recovery, according to a study in the March 3 issue of JAMA.

Maternal health during pregnancy in India and sub-Saharan Africa

A comparison of maternal nutrition in India and sub-Saharan Africa suggests a potential reason why African children are often taller and larger than their Indian counterparts. India is home to one-fifth of the world’s human births, but relatively little is known about maternal health.

Tropical plant recognizes different pollinators

A study describes a tropical plant that discriminates among pollinators that visit its flowers, enabling reproduction primarily by pollinators most likely to carry high quality pollen. Matthew Betts and colleagues studied the tropical plant Heliconia tortuosa, which has evolved long tubular flowers presumably to attract specific pollinators.
