Psychosis can complicate Alzheimer's diagnoses

Throughout New York and the rest of the nation, Alzheimer's disease is often misdiagnosed. A misdiagnosis can come in the form of a false positive, when doctors diagnose Alzheimer's in patients who don't have it, or a false negative, when doctors fail to detect the condition in a patient. A recent study published in Alzheimer's & Dementia: Translation Research and Clinical Intervention reveals how psychosis complicates matters.

Eating disorders and immune systems diseases

Parents in New York who are concerned about the effects eating disorders can have on their children should know that authors of a study have determined new associations between eating disorders and immune system diseases. They believe that these links may be useful in diagnosing and treating the diseases.

Registered nurses could prevent drug errors in nursing homes

New York families who have elderly relatives living in nursing homes may be interested to learn that, according to a study, registered nurses are more equipped to identify medication order discrepancies than licensed practical nurses. These mistakes often occur when patients are being moved between hospitals and different nursing homes.

4 skin conditions a dermatologist says are commonly misdiagnosed

Patients in New York and across the country often visit a doctor when they notice an unusual blemish or spot on their skin. Some skin imperfections are nothing more than sun spots or acne. However, others may indicate something requiring immediate attention. If initial signs of skin cancer or similar conditions are overlooked, a delay in treatment could have serious consequences for patients.

2 diagnostic tests proven to reduce preterm birth complications

It's a sad reality that not all pregnancies end at nine months with a healthy bundle of joy. For parents of babies born with birth complications, the normally celebratory event is often mitigated by worries and fears over the medical uncertainties that lie ahead for their newborns.

Surgeons don't always follow error disclosure rules

A New York surgeon who makes a mistake is supposed to inform the patient of that error. However, a survey published in JAMA Surgery found that some surgeons only follow some national guidelines related to disclosing such an error. The survey involved more than 60 surgeons who worked at various VA medical centers. Of the eight national guidelines for error disclosure after a surgery, most who participated in surgery said that they followed five of them.

Detecting cardiomyopathy

People in New York who have cardiomyopathy may not exhibit symptoms of the disease, which is why it is essential to know how to identify someone who may have a high likelihood of developing the condition. In some cases, there may be no symptoms or signs in the early stages of the disease, but the indications of heart failure may become obvious as the heart begin to deteriorate.

Diagnosing exploding head syndrome

New York patients who have trouble sleeping may be interested to learn about a sleep disorder known as exploding head syndrome. People who have this condition often experience a loud bang or even a gunshot noise when they try to go to sleep, even though these noises actually never occur. For many, the syndrome is overlooked by doctors.
