Highlights in Nurse Practitioner

Age is a predictor of mortality in status epilepticus

As reported in Neurocritical Care, males have a higher incidence of status epilepticus, early age of onset, and increased mortality. The highest mortality rates occurred in patients < 10 years of age and > 50 years of age. The in-hospital mortality rate of patients ≥ 80 years of age was 20.2%.

Increased incidence of second primary cancers in patients with salivary gland tumors

As reported in JAMA—Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, patients with salivary gland tumors have an increased risk of second primary tumors and newly developed cancers. Specifically, the cumulative 2-, 5-, and 10-year rates for second primary cancers are 4.4%, 8.3%, and 12.4%, respectively. Similarly, the cumulative 2-, 5-, and 10-year rates for newly diagnosed cancers are 1.1%, 3.4%, and 10.5%, respectively.

Low vitamin D levels increase risk of GDM

As reported in Acta Diabetologica, the OR for developing gestational diabetes mellitus was 1.48 for each 1 SD decrease in the 25OHD level. A decrease in 25OHD was also shown to be associated with increased insulin resistance in the second trimester.
