Antibiotic overuse can harm care facility patients

People in long-term care facilities in New York and around the country can be at particular risk of harm due to medication errors and the improper prescription of antibiotics. In particular, when antibiotics are used improperly to treat urinary tract infections, patients can be put at elevated risk of harm, especially due to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens. These types of antibiotic-resistant bacteria pose a major threat not only inside long-term care facilities but to overall public health.

Doctors less likely to detect heart disease in women

The medical community in New York does a better job of diagnosing and treating heart disease in men than in women. This disparity results from gender-based differences in symptoms and variations in cardiovascular disease between the sexes.

Cardiomyopathy, disease of the heart muscle

Busy people in New York might be aware of the risks of different types of cardiovascular disease; risks can be increased in people with hectic lifestyles, smokers or people who don't follow a healthy diet. Cardiomyopathy, disease of the heart muscle, is a lesser-known heart condition that can be dangerous, especially because people who have it sometimes don't notice any symptoms.

What to do after surgical errors

New York residents who undergo surgical procedures might be victims of surgical errors. When this occurs, it is important that the patients understand why the error occurred, how the surgeon can correct the errors and injuries and what legal steps should be taken.

Failed back surgery syndrome causes, symptoms, treatments

Patients in New York who are suffering from new and chronic pain following spinal surgery should know that they may have what's called failed back surgery syndrome. Patients who are suffering from the after-effects of neck surgery are also said to have FBSS.

Long-term research concludes some chemotherapy unnecessary

Cancer patients in New York depend on their doctors to choose appropriate treatment plans. Presentations at a recent American Society of Clinical Oncology meeting, however, shared conclusions from long-term studies that showed some cancer therapies were unnecessary or meaningless.

Detecting lung cancer with blood tests

New York residents who are concerned about cancer may be interested to learn that genetic blood testing may be able to detect the early stages of some cancerous conditions. According to researchers, a set of three different genetic tests detected early-stage lung cancer between 38 and 51 percent of the time. The researchers also report that the genetic tests detected advanced-stage lung cancers with nearly 90 percent accuracy.

Bilateral MRIs more accurate for diagnosing rheumatoid arthritis

New York patients who have rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, may get a more accurate diagnosis if they undergo magnetic resonance imaging on both hands. A new study shows that bilateral MRIs are better at diagnosing the disease than unilateral MRIs. The study was published in the Journal of Rheumatology.

Doctor facing multiple malpractice lawsuits

Patients in New York and throughout the country trust that their doctors will treat them with care and respect. However, one cosmetic surgeon who is known for posting videos of dancing while performing procedures is the subject of multiple medical malpractice lawsuits. The suits claim that the patients had infections and suffered from brain damage because of the doctor's negligence.
