Newswise: Holiday Dinner With a Side of Impeachment Hearings

Holiday Dinner With a Side of Impeachment Hearings

Cedars-Sinai

Sitting down to a holiday season meal with friends and family can be fun, but it can also be a recipe for disaster if it serves up political opinions, invasive questions and family gossip. This time of year can be stressful, and the recent impeachment hearings and divisive political climate only add to the potential tension, say mental health professionals. Chaplains and mental health counselors at Cedars-Sinai offer tips on navigating holiday dinners and get-togethers.

Have Your Health and Eat Meat Too: Making a Mediterranean Diet Work Down Under

University of South Australia

Barbecued, stir-fried or roasted, there’s no doubt that Aussies love their meat. Consuming on average nearly 100 kilograms of meat per person per year, Australians are among the top meat consumers worldwide. But with statistics showing that most Australians suffer from a poor diet, and red meat production adding to greenhouse-gas emissions, finding a balance between taste preferences, environmental protection, and health benefits is becoming critical.

Newswise: Too Few Hospitals Have Clinical Decision Support Tools to Calculate Nutrition for Critically Ill Infants

Too Few Hospitals Have Clinical Decision Support Tools to Calculate Nutrition for Critically Ill Infants

Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

Most neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) participating in the Children’s Hospitals Neonatal Consortium are unable to reliably and consistently monitor caloric intake delivered to critically ill infants at risk for growth failure, according to a study published in the Journal of Perinatology. Managing optimal nutrition for preemies is a complex process, especially when the baby is transitioned from receiving nutrition intravenously to enteral (or through the gut) feeds. The study found low prevalence of fully automated clinical decision support systems used to calculate and adjust nutritional intake for premature infants.
