How hospitals can improve outcomes of weekend surgeries - EurekaAlert 9 hours ago
A large-scale, multicenter study has shown that emergency body cooling does not improve survival rates or reduce brain injury in infants and children with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest more than normal temperature control. Until now, this treatment has not been studied in infants or children admitted to hospitals with cardiac arrest.
Studies have shown that patients who undergo surgeries on weekends tend to experience longer hospital stays and higher mortality rates and readmissions. For the first time, a new study has identified five resources that can help hospitals overcome this 'weekend effect': increased nurse-to-bed ratio; full adoption of electronic medical records; inpatient physical rehabilitation; a home-health program; and a pain management program.

If you were looking to buy a Nexus 7, youâ€™re out of luck as Googleâ€™s 7-inch tablet is no longer available for purchase from Googleâ€™s online store.If you visit the Nexus 7 page on the Google Store, youâ€™ll be presented with a message stating that â€śthe Nexus 7 is no longer available for purchase.â€ťÂ Itâ€™s unclear as of this writing whether Google has discontinued the Nexus 7 outright, or whether itâ€™s merely out of stock or is planning to release a refreshed version.At the time of its release in 2013, we praised the current Nexus 7 as â€śthe best 7-inch tablet that money can buy,â€ť and especially liked its sharp, vibrant 1280 by 1920-resolution screen. The Nexus 7 hasnâ€™t received an update since then, however, so given the tabletâ€™s age, it wouldnâ€™t come as a shock if Google stopped production.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Debian 8.0 'Jessie' is out and even Microsoft is celebrating - PC World 15 hours ago
Ever since Amazon announced the release of an SDK (software development kit) for its Echo interactive speaker early last month, weâ€™ve been salivating at the prospect of using Alexa (Echoâ€™s built-in virtual assistant) as a smart-home factotum. It appears some of the developers with access to the SDK are thinking along the same lines.One such developer is Holland, Massachusetts-based web engineer Jeffrey Bachand, who has come forward with a video of him using Echo to control his Nest Learning Thermostat and Wink smart-home hub. In the 71-second YouTube video, first reported on by Engadget, Bachand can be heard bombarding Alexa with a barrage of commands: â€śopen Winkâ€ť, â€śturn the living room [lights] offâ€ť, â€śopen Nestâ€ť, â€śturn it [the temperature] downâ€ť, and so on. On each occasion, Alexa does exactly as told.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
