A long-recommended but seldom-used method of analysis for fall injuries found a unique pattern of risk factors in the youngest-old

Background Few studies on fall risk factors use long-recommended methods for analysis of recurrent events. Previous falls are the biggest risk factor for future falls, but few fall studies focus on the youngest-old. Aims This study’s objective was to apply Cox regression for recurrent events to identify factors associated with injurious falls in the youngest-old. Methods...

Depressive symptoms, atherosclerotic burden and cerebral blood flow disturbances in a cohort of octogenarian men from a general population

Background The aim of this study was to examine in elderly men a relationship between depressive symptoms, peripheral vascular disease and cerebral blood flow (CBF). Methods Population-based cohort study started with an examination of 809 men at age 55, followed by the first (age 68ys) and second follow up (age 82ys). 128 survivors were examined at age 82 with 99mTc-HMPAO-SPECT...

Phenomenon of declining blood pressure in elderly - high systolic levels are undervalued with Korotkoff method

Background Systolic blood pressure (SBP) decline has been reported in octogenarians. The aim was to study if it could be observed while measuring SBP with two methods: Korotkoff (K-BP) and Strain-Gauge-Finger-Pletysmography (SG-BP), and which of them were more reliable in expressing vascular burden. Methods A cohort of 703 men from a population of Malmö, Sweden, were included in...

Falls in the general elderly population: a 3- and 6- year prospective study of risk factors using data from the longitudinal population study ‘Good ageing in Skane’

Background Accidental falls in the elderly are a major health problem, despite extensive research on risk factors and prevention. Only a limited number of multifactorial, long-term prospective studies have been performed on risk factors for falls in the general elderly population. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors predicting falls in a general elderly population...

Cardiac ventricular dimensions predict cognitive decline and cerebral blood flow abnormalities in aging men

Background The aims of this study are to examine possible associations between left cardiac ventricular measures in sixth decade and cognitive performance, both cross sectionally and longitudinally, and to examine if left cardiac ventricular measures could predict future changes in cerebral blood flow (CBF). Methods 211 elderly men from a cohort of the population study “Men born...

Utilization of In-Hospital Care among Foreign-Born Compared to Native Swedes 1987–1999

In previous longitudinal studies of mortality and morbidity among foreign-born and native-born Swedes, increased mortality and dissimilarities in mortality pattern were found. The aim of this study is to describe, compare, and analyse the utilization of in-hospital care among deceased foreign- and Swedish-born persons during the years 1987–1999 with focus on four diagnostic...

Home care aides in the administration of medication

Objective. To assess to what extent home care aides (HCAs) within the social services are engaged in medication administration, including their knowledge of how to perform this work correctly, and also to assess their knowledge of pharmacology, adverse drug effects, diseases, and symptoms. Furthermore, we wanted to study if there were any changes to be seen in these areas since a...

Oxidative DNA damage in human lymphocytes: correlations with plasma levels of α-tocopherol and carotenoids

In order to investigate whether oxidative damage is associated with differences in antioxidant intake, we measured the levels of 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2′-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodGuo) in lymphocytes and α-tocopherol and several carotenoids in plasma of women with different dietary habits. We found that women from Granada (Spain), a region with a typically Mediterranean diet, had...
