Newer technologies for detection of atrial fibrillation | The BMJ

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with increased risk of stroke, which can be reduced with appropriate anticoagulation treatment. However, it remains underdiagnosed in contemporary clinical practice using conventional detection methods, resulting in missed opportunities to implement appropriate treatment. Newer technologies developed in recent years can potentially enhance the detection of atrial fibrillation and overcome certain limitations of the conventional methods. However, uncertainties remain about their use and the significance of atrial fibrillation detected by some of these newer technologies. This review examines the evidence supporting the use of some of these technologies and evaluates their applications in certain clinical scenarios.

Measuring Nepotism through Shared Last Names: The Case of Italian Academia

Nepotistic practices are detrimental for academia. Here I show how disciplines with a high likelihood of nepotism can be detected using standard statistical techniques based on shared last names among professors. As an example, I analyze the set of all 61,340 Italian academics. I find that nepotism is prominent in Italy, with particular disciplinary sectors being detected as especially problematic. Out of 28 disciplines, 9 – accounting for more than half of Italian professors – display a significant paucity of last names. Moreover, in most disciplines a clear north-south trend emerges, with likelihood of nepotism increasing with latitude. Even accounting for the geographic clustering of last names, I find that for many disciplines the probability of name-sharing is boosted when professors work in the same institution or sub-discipline. Using these techniques policy makers can target cuts and funding in order to promote fair practices.

Rischia di atterrare nella pista errata: la manovra del pilota evita l’incidente Rischia di atterrare nella pista errata: la manovra del pilota evita l’incidente – La Stampa

«Solo pochi metri di distanza hanno impedito che questo potesse diventare il peggior incidente areo della storia». Bruce Landsberg, vicepresidente del National Safety Board, ha spiegato così il disastro evitato per un soffio dall’Airbus A320 dell’Air Canada, lo scorso 7 luglio. Le immagini, diffuse solo ora, mostrano chiaramente che l’aereo, autorizzato ad atterrare sulla pista 28 dell’aeroporto internazionale di San Francisco, si avvicina pericolosamente ad un’altra pista, dove quattro jet attendono il decollo. Accortosi dell’errore, il pilota dell’Airbus riprende bruscamente quota, evitando il peggio. Un altro membro del Safet Board, Earl Weener, ha dichiarato: «Oltre mille persone erano a rischio di rimanere gravemente ferite, o di essere uccise». National Safety Board
