Among older people who developed mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer's disease, those with untreated obstructed sleep breathing began to experience mental loss at an average age of 77, compared to age 90 for those without breathing problems, the study team found.

  14. Hospital admissions for chest pain may result from poor communicationRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 12, 2015 | Fox News

    Poor communication may lead some patients with chest pain to be admitted to the hospital even when their risk for a heart attack is low, a small study suggests. "Ideally, you want the conversation between a physician and a patient to be as straightforward as possible, but in our study of admissions for cardiac observation, we found the risks of going home were terribly overinflated and so was the potential benefit of staying overnight in the hospital," said lead study author Dr. David Newman.
