America’s emergency, trauma & intensive care teams provide some of the world’s most advanced care, bringing patients back from the brink of death on a regular basis. But they can’t save the lives, limbs or health of all who suffer acute illness and injury. Now, a new U-M center will focus on finding new ways to treat such patients through cross-disciplinary research and entrepreneurial activity.
A University of Michigan study found cardiac arrest was associated with improved survival when it occurred in the operating room (O.R.) or post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) compared to other hospital locations.
After analyzing data from nearly 5,000 American adults, the researchers found that the quality of a person’s relationships with a spouse, family and friends predicted the likelihood of major depression disorder in the future, regardless of how frequently their social interactions took place.
