As the population ages, more adults in the United States are living with dementia. Younger family members often are concerned that they too may develop dementia, but the general public is largely unaware that strategies exist to slow or delay onset of dementia. In fact, by implementing a number of healthful strategies throughout their lifespans, patients may be able to reduce the likelihood of developing dementia or at least delay its onset. These strategies include eating a high-quality diet; keeping physically, socially, and intellectually active; preventing or treating hearing loss; avoiding obesity, hypertension, and diabetes; and avoiding or stopping tobacco smoking...

In conducting its practice analysis, the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants incorporated new approaches in 2015. Twelve groups of PAs identified knowledge, tasks, and skills required for practice not only in primary care, but also in 11 practice focus areas (specialties). In addition, a list of diseases and disorders likely to be encountered was identified for each specialty. A representative sample of 15,771 certified PAs completed an online algorithm-driven survey and data were analyzed to determine how practice is the same for all PAs and how it differs depending on the practice focus...

The feldsher is a physician assistant (PA) prototype. Developed in Russia during the 19th century to serve as healthcare personnel at a time of physician scarcity, feldshers provided medical services throughout the Russian Empire and later Soviet Union. Their medical role from the mid-19th century until the Bolshevik revolution in 1917 was crucial, particularly in rural and underserved regions. During wartime, many served in the military as medics. During the late 20th century, feldshers' numbers waned compared with physicians and nurses...

Stridor is a high-pitched respiratory sound that signals upper airway obstruction. It can be encountered by clinicians in a variety of clinical settings and requires a team-based, interdisciplinary approach. Early recognition is crucial, as the differential diagnosis can be broad, and causes range from benign to life-threatening. This article reviews the most commonly encountered causes of chronic congenital stridor in infants, focusing on the diagnostic approach, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and management strategies...

Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) is a rare mitochondrial genetic disorder characterized by painless acute or subacute vision loss that develops during adolescence. Clinicians should know how to identify potential LHON and when to refer patients to a neuro-ophthalmologist for diagnosis and treatment. This case highlights the value of a thorough family history in ED patients.

Sudden infant death syndrome, a type of sleep-related sudden unexpected infant death (SUID) is the leading cause of postneonatal mortality in the United States and the third leading cause of infant death overall. Despite the evidence-based risk-reduction strategies and the highly publicized campaigns for a safe sleep environment, some infants continue to sleep in unsafe sleep conditions. Clinicians need to know the current best practices to reduce the incidence of sleep-related SUID and be knowledgeable to counsel caregivers who may resist adhering to these recommendations...

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects about 20% of US military veterans and is a major cause of mortality in these men and women. The incidence of PTSD has persisted over the last decade with the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, yet treatment and adherence remain inadequate in part due to clinician lack of knowledge about cognitive processing therapy and prolonged exposure, the proven gold standards in treatment. This article reviews the most current and successful PTSD treatment options and identifies risk factors for patient nonadherence in hopes of reducing the rate of veteran suicide related to PTSD...

Renal transplantation is the treatment of choice for patients with end-stage renal disease. Improved success of renal transplantation has led to a growing number of US patients waiting for a transplant and longer waits to obtain kidneys. This article discusses the process and challenges of getting on the wait list, kidney organ allocation, and areas being explored to increase available organs for renal transplantation.
