INSOMNIA DOES NOT PREDICT HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
(Tuesday, October 28, 1:00 PM EST)

Difficulty falling asleep may be associated with a lower risk of hypertension than researchers once believed. Researchers from the University of Kentucky proposed the hypothesis that insomnia would predict hypertension, particularly among African-Americans. Data were analyzed from 1,419 older individuals with a mean age of 73.4 years who were not hypertensive at baseline. Researchers found that difficulty falling asleep, alone or in combination with other sleep complaints, predicted a significantly reduced risk of incident hypertension for men who were not African-American over a 6-year period of follow up. Furthermore, insomnia complaints did not predict hypertension in women or in African-Americans, although there may not have been enough power to show a significant association for African-Americans.

BRONCHOSCOPY SAFE FOR RETRIEVING ASPIRATED PINS FROM MUSLIM SCARVES
(Tuesday, October 28, 1:00 PM EST)

Flexible bronchoscopy may be a safe method of retrieving aspirated metallic pins that are used to fix Muslim women's scarves, now a common problem in Islamic countries. Researchers in Egypt reviewed the charts of 115 patients who underwent fiberoptic bronchoscopy in order to remove a metallic pin from the trachea or left or right bronchial trees. Overall, 120 metallic pins were successfully retrieved with no major complications. Researchers conclude that flexible bronchoscopy is a safe way to retrieve aspirated metallic pins and avoid rigid bronchoscopy and general anesthesia.
