Don’t Drop That Turkey Leg: 5-Second Rule Unsupported by Science

When you were a kid, you might have heard a parent or sibling cite the “five-second rule” before swooping down on a piece of fugitive salami or a wayward grape. The basic premise is that once food is dropped on the floor you have a time limit of five seconds before it becomes unsafe to eat. The problem with the theory, according to microbial ecologist Jack Gilbert, is that it simply isn’t true.

Emergency Video Telemedicine Positively Impacts Newborn Resuscitation

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Approximately 10 percent of newborns require help breathing after birth, and 1 in 1,000 newborns require more intensive resuscitation measures. These infrequent, high-risk deliveries may present challenges to community hospitals less familiar with advanced newborn resuscitation interventions. Telemedicine consultations are a good option to help meet these challenges and positively impact patient care, according to a study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings.
