New Findings Illustrate How Standardized Care Reduces Disparities in the ICU
A recent study shows how equitable COVID-19 outcomes and reduced disparities in care can be achieved.
Common Measures of Immune Status, Inflammation Can Predict Mortality
The association between low lymphocyte levels and reduced survival is strengthened when present in combination with other blood abnormalities. Epidemiologist Jarrod Dalton, PhD, discusses his findings, which suggest that lymphocyte count, red blood cell distribution width and C-reactive protein levels can be used as pragmatic immune status indicators in routine preventive care.
Exercise Stress Test Performance Beats Age in Predicting Longevity
