Cardiac ICU Patient Composition Is Changing Over Time

A new study uncovers changes in the makeup of the cardiac intensive care unit as more patients are primarily diagnosed with noncardiac conditions.

The cardiac intensive care unit is no longer only a place for patients recovering from heart attacks, like the coronary care units of decades past. A new University of Michigan study finds slightly more than half of heart patients are admitted to the CICU for noncardiac conditions, such as sepsis or renal failure, rather than for a heart condition.

“It’s an opportunity for providers to assess training and staffing models,” says lead author Shashank S. Sinha, MD, MSc, an advanced heart failure and cardiac transplantation fellow at U-M’s Frankel Cardiovascular Center.

Is Parkinson’s Care Via Telemedicine As Effective As Going To The Clinic?

For people with Parkinson’s disease, seeing a neurologist by video conference from their homes may be as effective as their usual in-person care with their local physician, according to a new study published in the online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Improving Nursing Home Care for People with Dementia

By 2050, the number of people 65 and older with dementia in the United States is expected to nearly triple – from 5 million to more than 13 million – increasing the numbers in assisted living and nursing homes.

Antipsychotic medications are prescribed to more than half of patients with dementia – despite warnings about serious and life-threatening adverse drug reactions.

Experts from Rutgers Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research and Duke University School of Nursing presented research findings on what is being done to improve the safety of care for nursing home residents with dementia at the 21st World Congress of Gerontology and Geriatrics.

Rutgers Today spoke with symposium co-chairs Olga Jarrín of Rutgers School of Nursing and Stephen Crystal, chair of the Division on Aging and AIDS Research Group at the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Resea
