  • The Imperative of Palliation in the Management of Rabies Encephalomyelitis. [Review]
    Trop Med Infect Dis 2017; 2(4)Warrell M, Warrell DA, Tarantola A
  • The aim of this review is to guide clinicians in the practical management of patients suffering from rabies encephalomyelitis. This condition is eminently preventable by modern post-exposure vaccination, but is virtually always fatal in unvaccinated people. In the absence of any proven effective antiviral or other treatment, palliative care is an imperative to minimise suffering. Suspicion of rab…
  • Ethnic and geographic variations in multimorbidty: Evidence from three large cohorts. [Journal Article]
    Soc Sci Med 2018; 211:198-206Gebregziabher M, Ward RC, … Egede LE

This study (i) examines the magnitude and patterns of multimorbidity by race/ethnicity and geography; (ii) compares the level of variation explained by these factors in three multimorbidity measures across three large cohorts. We created three na…
  • Psychopathy and heroism in first responders: Traits cut from the same cloth? [Journal Article]
    Personal Disord 2018; 9(4):354-368Patton CL, Smith SF, Lilienfeld SO

We examined the relations among psychopathic traits, heroism, altruism, workplace deviance, and leadership in first-respo…
  • Recognition and Management of Pediatric Salt Toxicity. [Review]
    Pediatr Emerg Care 2018; 34(11):820-824Blohm E, Goldberg A, … Babu K
  • CONCLUSIONS: The approach to treatment differs between salt toxicity and hypernatremia, focusing on rapid correction of serum osmolality rather than gradual normalization of serum sodium concentrations. Consultation of nephrology and child protection services are strongly recommended in the comprehensive treatment approach.
