As the opioid epidemic evolves, it is vital to identify changes in the geographical distribution of opioid-related deaths, and the specific opioids to which those deaths are attributed, to ensure that...
Since 1989, when the term "oligoanalgesia" was coined, physicians have been encouraged to be more aggressive about treating pain (1). Although pain scores have sometimes been considered the "fifth vit...
The opioid epidemic remains prominent in both the medical literature and popular media. Rheumatologists are among the physicians at the forefront of the epidemic because of the prominent role of pain ...
Opioids have incredible power to make lives better, as well as destroy them. After the latest US opioid overuse crisis reported by the United Nations (UN) in 2017, several other countries started obse...
The United States is in the middle of an opioid epidemic. Gastrointestinal surgery has been ranked in the top 3 surgical subspecialties for highest opioid prescribing.
The overall goals for this study are: 1) to develop a predictive model to identify patients who are stable enough to forego vital sign checks overnight, 2) incorporate this predictive mode...
Patients and volunteers both with and without medical problems will be recruited; vital sign measurements are taken twice with normal equipment and while recording video data at the same t...
Partners Connected Health will conduct a clinical validation study to evaluate the accuracy of measurement for each vital sign with the Vital Moto Mod platform, compared to appropriate ref...
This trial seeks to demonstrate clinical accuracy and safety of the integrated V-Sensor when used by the general, healthy adult population interested in measuring their vital signs outside...
The purpose of this study is to determine if checking smoking status as a routine vital sign increases the delivery rate of cessation counseling to adult smokers in primary care practices.
A synthetic opioid that is used as the hydrochloride. It is an opioid analgesic that is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. It has actions and uses similar to those of MORPHINE. It also has a depressant action on the cough center and may be given to control intractable cough associated with terminal lung cancer. Methadone is also used as part of the treatment of dependence on opioid drugs, although prolonged use of methadone itself may result in dependence.

A class of opioid receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Kappa opioid receptors bind dynorphins with a higher affinity than endorphins which are themselves preferred to enkephalins.
A class of opioid receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Mu opioid receptors bind, in decreasing order of affinity, endorphins, dynorphins, met-enkephalin, and leu-enkephalin. They have also been shown to be molecular receptors for morphine.
A species of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria that is the etiologic agent of epidemic typhus fever acquired through contact with lice (TYPHUS, EPIDEMIC LOUSE-BORNE) as well as Brill's disease.
A class of opioid receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Delta opioid receptors bind endorphins and enkephalins with approximately equal affinity and have less affinity for dynorphins.
