Preventive therapy in brain-injured patients lowers risk of pulmonary embolism, DVT

People who sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are at high risk for developing deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. But blood-thinning medications started within 72 hours of hospital arrival have a significant protective effect against these conditions in patients with severe TBI and do not increase risk of bleeding complications or death, say investigators.

Can Scientists Hack Sleep For Better Memory?

New brain research reinforces the connection between deep sleep and memory. One of the benefits of sleep is its contributions to memory. People with sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea or chronic insomnia, who may experience little non-rapid-eye-movement (non-REM) sleep—the deepest level of sleep—tend to have impaired memory functions.
