Machine-learning algorithms can help health care staff correctly diagnose alcohol-associated hepatitis, acute cholangitis

New Mayo Clinic research finds that machine-learning algorithms can help health care staff distinguish the two conditions. In an article published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, researchers show how algorithms may be effective predictive tools using a few simple variables and routinely available structured clinical information.

Comprehensive patient blood management program can reduce use of transfusions, improve patient outcomes

A growing number of hospitals have implemented patient blood management programs to reduce unnecessary blood transfusions and costs. A study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings finds that such a program can not only substantially reduce transfusion use, but also reduce length of hospital stays and in-hospital adverse outcomes.

A forte resposta imunológica relacionada com a covid -19 contribui para lesões renais

Os pesquisadores da Mayo Clinic descobriram que a lesão renal aguda associada com a COVID-19 é muito similar à lesão renal causada por sepse e que a resposta imunológica ativada pela doença exerce um papel central.

Detrás de la insuficiencia renal aguda relacionada con la COVID-19, hay una fuerte reacción inmunitaria

Los investigadores de Mayo Clinic descubrieron que la insuficiencia renal aguda relacionada con la COVID-19 actúa de forma similar al daño renal causado por la sepsis y que la reacción inmunitaria producida por la infección tiene un papel fundamental.

Strong immune response underlies acute kidney injury related to COVID-19

Mayo Clinic researchers have found that acute kidney injury associated with COVID-19 resembles sepsis-caused kidney injury, and the immune response triggered by the infection plays a pivotal role.

The findings, published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, also suggest that mitochondrial dysfunction — a loss of function in cellular energy production — is commonly found in kidney injury related to COVID-19.

Mayo Clinic study provides clarity on use of anticoagulants in gastrointestinal cancers

A study by Mayo Clinic researchers provides some clarity in the use of direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC), such as apixaban and rivaroxaban, to treat acute venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with gastrointestinal cancers. The findings were published Wednesday, June 2, in Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

La fatiga, el deterioro cognitivo percibido y los trastornos del estado de ánimo se asocian al síndrome posterior a la COVID-19, según un estudio de Mayo Clinic

Los pacientes a los que se les diagnostica el síndrome posterior a la COVID-19, también conocido como “PCS”, “síndrome de COVID-19 de larga duración” y “secuelas posagudas del SARS COV-2”, experimentan síntomas como trastornos del estado de ánimo, fatiga y deterioro cognitivo percibido que pueden afectar de manera negativa el regreso al trabajo y la reanudación de las actividades normales.

Una tasa alta de vacunación es clave para el curso de la pandemia de la COVID-19, según un modelo computarizado de Mayo Clinic

Los científicos de datos de Mayo Clinic que desarrollaron un modelado computarizado de gran precisión para predecir las tendencias de los casos de COVID-19 en Estados Unidos cuentan con una investigación nueva que muestra la importancia de una tasa alta de vacunación para reducir la cantidad de casos y controlar la pandemia.

Mayo Clinic Model of Care and Research leads to favorable outcomes for patients with COVID-19

Patients with COVID-19 who received care at Mayo Clinic, whether in the hospital or at home, had outcomes that compared favorably to those reported nationally and internationally. These results demonstrate the value of an integrated, team-based approach to patient care and monitoring, according to a retrospective study of all patients with COVID-19 treated at Mayo Clinic March 1–July 31.

Homeless people receive less treatment in hospitals for heart attacks, have higher readmission rates

Homelessness has become a social crisis and public health problem around the world, affecting people of all ages. Most homeless people are at a disadvantage with few resources, and may or may not have adequate health insurance. Mental illness and substance abuse are common issues in the homeless community. People living on the streets have a high likelihood of developing heart disease. Yet they have little ability to take care of their health.

Structured, salary-only compensation plan for physicians is a model for pay equity, Mayo Clinic study finds

Gender pay equity in the field of medicine remains elusive. Gender-based pay differences have been shown to persist, even when controlling for experience, clinical productivity, academic rank and other factors. These inequities result in significantly lower lifetime earnings, job burnout and negative attitudes toward work, and adverse effects on the profession and society.

Expert Alert: Keep exercising: New study finds it’s good for your brain’s gray matter

A study in Mayo Clinic Proceedings from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases provides new evidence of an association between cardiorespiratory fitness and brain health, particularly in gray matter and total brain volume — regions of the brain involved with cognitive decline and aging.

Diabetes can independently lead to heart failure, population study shows

Heart problems are a common development for people with diabetes. In fact, about 33% of people in the U.S. admitted to the hospital for heart failure also have diabetes. Heart failure may be the result of a co-condition, such as hypertension or coronary heart disease, but not always.

A study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, Diabetes Mellitus Is an Independent Predictor for the Development of Heart Failure: A Population Study, examines the idea of diabetic cardiomyopathy and heart failure from the effects of diabetes alone.

Study finds associations between rheumatoid arthritis, other diseases before and after diagnosis

A Mayo Clinic-led study involving 3,276 patients has found that people with inflammatory bowel disease, Type 1 diabetes or blood clots may be at increased risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis. The study, published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, also found that people who have rheumatoid arthritis are at increased risk of developing heart disease, blood clots and sleep apnea.

Chronic kidney disease patients at increased risk of adverse cardiovascular outcomes, Mayo Clinic study finds

Chronic kidney disease, which afflicts an estimated 6.4% of U.S. adults 45 and older, is associated with an increased risk of heart attack and other adverse cardiovascular outcomes, according to new research from Mayo Clinic.
