Additional resources OHA COVID-19 vaccine website: covidvaccine.oregon.gov OHA Facebook  Safe+Strong website Ask a Black Doctor on The Numberz REACH webpage and REACH Facebook Cornell University Infographic on Spotting Fake News Fighting COVID-19 Vaccine Misinformation and Heart Awareness:  Q1: Some social media posts I've read suggest COVID-19 vaccines lead to football player Damar Hamlin collapsing in the middle of an NFL game on Monday. Should I believe them? It's best to be cautious about other users' online posts around the COVID-19 vaccine, especially if they are vague, and trigger emotional responses like fear and anxiety. In this case, many of these posts imply a connection between Hamlin's collapse, and the COVID-19 vaccine without citing any sources. Some even say he passed away from the incident using the hashtag #diedsuddenly, when he's actually in a hospital as of the publishing of this episode. It's also important to note that Hamlin's vaccination status is unknown, and his full medical history isn't publicly accessible information.  For now, Hamlin's team the Buffalo Bills say he experienced a cardiac arrest shortly after a tackle. While there's no confirmed reason as to why, doctors following the situation say it was possibly due to something called commotio cordis. Q2: What is commotio cordis? Is it the same as a heart attack? Commotio cordis happens whenever someone experiences enough blunt force or trauma to the chest during a specific timing of their heartbeat, when the heart is most vulnerable to such impacts. Their heart can stop beating unexpectedly as a result, otherwise known as cardiac arrest.  In this situation, calling 9-1-1 and giving CPR as soon as possible can save that person's life until emergency response teams (EMTs) arrive.   By comparison, heart attacks can happen when the heart doesn't get enough blood, usually due to something blocking the bloodflow. Since someone experiencing a heart attack can still talk and breathe, they don't need CPR, but they do need to get to a hospital right away. Q3: Does getting the COVID-19 vaccine have any side effects that may affect my heart? There have been rare reports of Myocarditis and Pericarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle and inflammation of the heart's outer lining respectively. While few, these cases tend to happen in teen boys and young men within a week of getting their second COVID-19 shot. With that said, they felt better quickly after getting some care and medicine.  Those aside, there's a remote chance of a severe allergic reaction within minutes to an hour of getting your COVID-19 vaccine. A fast heartbeat and dizziness are some possible signs of this.   Q4: Are COVID-19 vaccines safe? Should I still get myself or my child vaccinated? Yes. Vaccines go through constant testing for quality and safety, even after they're licensed and approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Getting vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19 helps prevent possibly severe complications like getting seriously ill, being hospitalized and dying. Additionally, the vaccine helps reliably create an immune response against the virus without the potential illness or post-COVID conditions that can come with an infection. As the virus evolves over time and mutates into different variants like Omicron, keeping up to date on booster shots you're eligible for can offer protection against those new variants. Q5: I heard about a new variant type called XBB.1.5 in the news. What is the latest we know about it? At this time, we know that XBB.1.5 is a subvariant of Omicron that's steadily grown across December 2022. By the end of that month, it made up 18.2% of cases across Oregon, Washington and Idaho, and 40% of cases nationally, according to the CDC. There's currently no evidence of it causing more severe illness from catching the virus, though its mutations allow it to spread more quickly than other subvariants. While there's still a lot to learn, I think we should be hearing more about it in the coming weeks as new information becomes available.  Document accessibility: For individuals with disabilities or individuals who speak a language other than English, OHA can provide information in alternate formats such as translations, large print, or braille.

This week we will discuss another respiratory virus that has been really hitting hard here in the United States this season.    ​ Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a contagious virus that is usually mild, but can severely affect the lungs and respiratory airways in older adults While you may not have heard of it yet, RSV is not a new virus and may be more of a health concern than you think—even if you're healthy. And if you're aged 60 or older, you can get RSV. But don't worry, by coming here you've taken a savvy first step toward learning about RSV so you can be informed. Let's dive in. What are the symptoms of RSV? ​ Symptoms of RSV can range from mild to severe and can last up to 2 weeks. RSV can cause severe symptoms in older adults. RSV symptoms may include: Fever Cough Sore Throat Runny Nose Congestion Headache Tiredness ​The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that adults at highest risk for severe RSV infection include older adults, especially those 65 years of age and older, adults with chronic heart or lung disease, and adults with weakened immune systems. ~~ How does RSV spread? Similar to some other respiratory infections, a cough or sneeze can easily spread RSV. And while you're typically contagious for 3-8 days, some people, especially those with weakened immune systems, can be contagious for as long as 4 weeks—even after they stop showing symptoms. ~~ There's a trio of viruses spreading in the U.S. — COVID-19, the flu and RSV — and some in the medical world are calling it a “tripledemic.” Public health officials have seen “elevated” levels of all three viruses circulating in the U.S. If you're feeling sick, it can be tough to differentiate among COVID-19, the flu and RSV because they share similar symptoms and can also look like the common cold. When it comes to COVID-19, the CDC reports cases and deaths have risen in the past few weeks, as of Dec. 16. Meanwhile, Walenksy said at the briefing that flu and RSV cases are higher than what's been historically typical this season. It's possible that you might be sick with one of the viruses. But keep in mind that from late August through March, it's also a prime time to get a cold ~~ Am I sick with COVID, RSV, the flu or simply a cold? Before getting into symptoms, one characteristic COVID-19, the flu and RSV shares is that they're respiratory infections affecting the airways, lungs, sinuses and throat. The cold is similar in that it is an upper respiratory infection affecting the nose and throat. COVID-19 and the flu have quite a few overlapping symptoms, according to the CDC, including: Fever Cough Trouble breathing  Feeling tired Sore throat Headache Vomiting Runny or a stuffy nose ~~ Diarrhea is listed as a flu and COVID-19 symptom by the CDC. However, while anyone with COVID-19 can experience diarrhea, it is more likely that children with the flu will experience the symptom, according to the agency. The CDC notes that COVID-19 symptoms may take longer to show up after an initial infection compared with the flu. ~~ Overall, the flu is the most likely to result in muscle aches and a fever compared to COVID-19, a cold and RSV, according to NYU Langone Health. ​In the U.S., the flu and RSV is hitting children hard and overwhelming hospitals, NPR reports. ~~ RSV, or respiratory syncytial virus, can affect anyone with “cold-like” symptoms and has the potential to be most severe for babies and older adults, according to the CDC.  The most common symptoms of RSV and a cold Similarly to COVID-19 and the flu, RSV symptoms, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, include: •  Fever • Cough • Trouble breathing, including wheezing and shortness of breath • Feeling tired • Stuffy nose Other symptoms include sneezing, flaring nostrils, lack of appetite, and “head bobbing or chest caving in between and under ribs with each breath,” the American Academy of Pediatrics reports. The common cold also shares overlapping symptoms of COVID-19, the flu and RSV, according to Mayo Clinic. ~~ Some include: • Low-grade fever • Cough • Runny or stuffy nose • Congestion Meanwhile, sneezing, body aches and a mild headache are also cold symptoms.  Getting evaluated for COVID-19 or the flu With COVID-19 and the flu, the CDC reports that “you cannot tell the difference between” the pair based on symptoms. ​Luckily, there is a test that can detect whether you have COVID-19, the flu and even RSV that you can get through a health care provider. If all three are ruled out, there's potential that you could have a cold. Generally, good habits to prevent yourself from getting sick include washing hands, avoiding touching your face, avoiding close physical contact, staying home and cleaning surfaces (CREDITS: https://bit.ly/3jIWxbG) .

However, young children are especially susceptible to RSV.  Those at higher risk of severe illness are: Children under the age of 2 Premature infants Infants with congenital or chornic cardiopulmonary disease  Older adults 65+ Children and adults with weakend immune systems When children are first infected with RSV, between 25-40% will have symptoms of bronchiolitis or penumonia Yet, it's important to keep in mind that only about 2% of children will require hospitalization Q2: What are signs and symtpoms of RSV? Symptoms will show within 4 to 6 days after getting infected.  Runny nose Decrease in appeitite Sneezing Fever Wheezing Symptoms in infants with RSV may be Irritability Decrease activity  Breathing difficulties These symptoms usually appear in stages and not all at once. Q3: What is the impact of RSV in the Black and African American community? Research has show that due to racism-related stress Black and African American women are more likely to deliver a premature baby.  The risk of contracting RSV is even higher for premature babies. Making this of particular concern for Black and African American community.  Being aware of the impact of RSV on the community and the preventive steps that can be taken, is critical to protect the health and well-being of children.   Q4: What are some safety measure one should take?

As educators, Jeremy and Sass both write a lot of test questions so they'll share their experience from that side of the test-taking process. They'll also give you methods to analyze the questions in a way that can help you narrow down to the correct answer. Hey...it's Q&A day, so let us know what you think.   Here are some of the things you'll learn on this show: Which measure is an accurate indicator of preoxygenation? (3:04) Which effect explains the right work shift in the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve? (6:15) Which factors cause a left work shift in the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve? (10:14) Hypoxic Pulmonary Vasoconstriction is inhibited by…? (12:58) What is the infrared wavelength measured by pulse oximetry? (17:20) Which inspiratory muscles are involved with supplemental inspiratory effort during times of respiratory distress?

As Glicksman explains, there are individual systems that are irreducibly complex, and these are joined together into a higher-level system of systems that is also irreducibly complex, marked by causal circularities and coherent interdependencies at every turn.

How Past Extinctions At The La Brea Tar Pit Can Teach Us About Our Climate Future If you drive through Los Angeles, you'll pass by some of California's most iconic sites—the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Universal Studios, the Santa Monica Pier. But if you don't look for it, you may miss the La Brea tar pits—a place where Ice Age life from around 50 thousand years ago got trapped and preserved in sticky black ooze. Visitors can see megafauna, including skeletons of saber tooth cats and dire wolves, along with a vast collection of specimens, including things as small as beetle wings and rodent dung. La Brea was recently named as one of the world's most important geological heritage sites by the International Union of Geological Sciences. The museum is currently planning an extensive redesign that will seek to connect visitors to research, offering lessons about climate, extinction, and survival. Dr. Lori Bettison-Varga, president and director of the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History, joins Ira to explain the significance of the site, and how a trove of Ice Age specimens can serve as a modern-day climate laboratory.   Across The Country, RSV Is Overwhelming Medical Systems If you have a child—or interact with children on a regular basis—odds are you've heard about a very contagious virus: RSV, or respiratory syncytial virus. This isn't a new illness, but it has been surging across the country. This has left parents and caretakers stressed about how to keep their kids safe. Hospitals across the country are having trouble coping with this year's surge, which has come earlier and stronger than normal. This week, Science Friday is spotlighting two regions affected by the wave: Wisconsin and Washington, D.C. The two regions have their own challenges when it comes to the RSV surge. In Wisconsin, care deserts and a large elderly population make containing this virus important to avoid dangerous consequences. In Washington, D.C., hospitals are feeling the effects of years of shutting down pediatric units to make room for adult beds. Joining Ira to talk about RSV in Wisconsin and Washington D.C. are two journalists who have been following this: Jenny Peek, news editor for Wisconsin Public Radio and Aja Drain, reporter at WAMU public radio.   What You Should Know About This RSV Surge Respiratory syncytial virus, known as RSV, is the number one cause of infant hospitalizations in the United States, and cases are soaring this year. Because young children have spent part—if not most—of their childhoods isolated, masking, or staying home due to the pandemic, many of their immune systems haven't been exposed to RSV until now. It's caused a huge surge in cases, and placed a heavy burden on pediatric clinics and hospitals. What do you need to know about the spike in infections? Ira talks with Dr. Carol Kao, a pediatrician and assistant professor at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, who has treated RSV for years. They dig into why this surge is happening now, the basics of the virus, how RSV is treated, and where we stand with an RSV vaccine.   Mapping Brain Connections Reinforces Theories On Human Cognition Brain regions are associated with different functions—the hippocampus is responsible for long-term memory, for example, and the frontal lobe for personality, behavior, and emotions. After decades of research using sophisticated brain imaging, there's a growing consensus among neuroscientists that understanding the connections between brain regions may be even more important than the functions of the regions themselves. When it comes to understanding human cognition, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Ira speaks with Dr. Stephanie Forkel, assistant professor at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging at Radboud University in Nijmegen in the Netherlands, who wrote a review article in the journal Science about the importance of brain connectivity, and what it means for the future of neuroscience. Transcripts for each segment will be available the week after the show airs on sciencefriday.com.
