Neck injuries: Get support if you're suffering from whiplash

When you were driving home, you were suddenly involved in a car crash. You hadn't expected it, because traffic was light, but you ended up going off the road and into a ditch. The first thing you noticed was that your neck was sore, but you felt like things could be worse.

WHO formally defines burnout as a diagnosable condition

Burnout is something that many workers in New Jersey suffer from without even knowing it. Now, however, the World Health Organization has formally defined the condition as something diagnosable. Within its occupational context, burnout is a syndrome caused by work-related stress and characterized by exhaustion, an increasing mental distance from one's job and a reduced ability to carry out that job in a professional manner.

Reducing distracted driving using artificial intelligence

Drivers in New Jersey are likely interested in learning about efforts that are being made to improve distracted driving. Unfortunately, about nine deaths in the United States are related to individuals being distracted while behind the wheel. Many feel that it is good news to know that Advanced Driver Assistance Systems will have to be included in all new vehicles by the end of 2020 in the United States and Europe, including forward collision warning systems and autonomous emergency braking systems.

Alzheimer's misdiagnosis common among dementia patients

Alzheimer's disease has become nearly synonymous with dementia, but memory loss among older adults can arise for different reasons. Multiple forms of dementia exist, and a recent study explored the connection between traumatic brain injuries and memory disruption among the elderly. The researchers noted that the correct identification of the source of memory loss was crucial for providing appropriate care for memory patients in New Jersey and elsewhere. They estimated that roughly 21% of Alzheimer's patients had been misdiagnosed.

Risks patients may face outside of hospitals

According to a report published by the ECRI Institute, patients in New Jersey and elsewhere are more likely to seek medical interventions in ambulatory care facilities. However, there may be risks for those who choose to seek care in a doctor's office or outpatient center instead of at a hospital. One of those risks is diagnostic testing errors, which may make it harder for a patient to get treatment in a timely manner.
