Context: The  flu shot season includes several new vaccine options for consumers, Mayo Clinic vaccine expert Gregory Poland, M.D., says. Fearful of needles? There’s now an influenza vaccination just for you. Allergic to eggs? It won’t stop you from getting a flu shot. The new choices move influenza vaccinations closer to the personalized approach long sought by immunologists including Dr. Poland, but they may also prove bewildering to patients, he says.

Track medical substance-use data, association board member says
by Jeff Hansel

A study by Mayo Clinic researchers shows nearly 1 in every 100 of anesthesiology specialists-in-training developed substance-use disorder during their residency programs. In addition "at least 11 percent" of those with confirmed substance use disorders eventually die "of a cause directly related to the disorder," says an announcement of a study appearing in the Dec. 4 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. "That's a pretty high mortality rate for a disease," said Dr. David Warner of the Mayo Clinic, a member of the American Board of Anesthesiology's Board of Directors and co-author of the study.

Circulation: The Post-Bulletin has a weekend readership of nearly 45,000 people and daily readership of more than 41,000 people. The newspaper serves Rochester, Minn., and southeast Minnesota.

Context: According to a study conducted by Mayo Clinic and the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA), nearly 1 in every 100 anesthesiology residents entering primary training from 1975 to 2009 developed substance use disorder (SUD) during training. The incidence of this disorder is continuing to increase and the risk of relapse or death is high. The study appears in the Dec. 4 issue of JAMA, a medical education theme issue.

Substance use disorder is a serious public health problem, and physicians are not immune. Anesthesiologists have ready access to potent drugs such as intravenous opioids, although only indirect evidence exists that SUD is more common in anesthesiologists than in other physicians, according to background information in the article. "Although relatively few anesthesiology residents develop SUD, the incidence is continuing to increase," says David Warner, M.D., of Mayo Clinic's Department of Anesthesiology, and the ABA Board of Directors and chair of the Research and Credentials committees.

CBS News, Menopause studies shine light on two potential treatments for dwindling sexual desire by Michelle Castillo…Menopause can bring about many changes for a woman. The vaginal and genital tissue may get thinner, which can cause painful sex, or dyspareunia.

TIME, 80 Reasons Why Drinking Alcohol Is Great by Laura Stampler, Thursday is the 80th birthday of the repeal of prohibition in 1933, a day that should be heartily celebrated across the country. To give martini aficionado Franklin D. Roosevelt and the 21st amendment a proper “thanks,” we decided to make a list of 80 reasons why drinking alcohol is the greatest….6. Although the Mayo Clinic says, “it’s possible that red wine isn’t any better than beer, white wine or liquor for heart health,” which we’re taking to mean all of the above is a healthy choice in moderation.

KTTC, Mayo Clinic lights Plummer Building for the holidays, The lighting of the Plummer Building used to be a Mayo Clinic tradition, and this year, for the sesquicentennial, it's back. For a few years in the 1950's the building was lit in different shapes for different holidays: a Christmas tree for Christmas, a cross for Easter, but the tradition ended in 1956… "Back in the 1950's those windows were operable so we could actually go through the widows and affix that star to the wall," said Bruce Rohde, the chair of the committee responsible for putting on the light show. "The building has been upgraded. There's work that's been done, so those windows are not operable now. So the window washers that actually work here in town at Mayo were able to secure the star coming over the side of the building."

Post-Bulletin, Plummer Building regains Christmas lights status by Anne Murphy, Once, Rochester residents did not have to go far or look hard to find the perfect Christmas tree. Every December, from 1950 to 1956, the night skyline of Rochester featured a tree formed of lights shining from the windows of Mayo Clinic's Plummer Building, facing Second Street Southwest. "The tree was always perfectly shaped," remembers Maxine Kalmes, who, with her husband, Curtis, would take their children to see the tree in the '50s. "Everyone would go downtown to see it," she said.

US News & World Report, How to Exercise in Cold Weather by Laura McMullen…Suspicious of anyone who’d voluntarily go outside – let alone exercise! – in 30-degree weather?

Follow these tips from John Honerkamp, chief coach of the New York Road Runners organization, and the Mayo Clinic, for safely (and even enjoyably) working out in the winter.

US News & World Report, Yes, You Can – and Should – Exercise During Pregnancy by Rachel Pomerance Berl, "There's been a legacy forever of pregnant people being somehow equated with eggs, that their shell is very fragile" and thus, "the baby is easily broken," says Roger Harms, associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Mayo Medical School and editor of the "Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy." To the contrary, there's no evidence that exercise would harm a fetus and the health benefits for the mom-to-be are well-established, he says. As Harms sees it, exercise provides a kind of insurance for mothers to better rebound from the added weight and stress of new motherhood.

Pueblo Chieftain, Walking may help retain brain health by Marni Jameson, Everyone knows walking is good exercise, but it has another benefit: a daily 20-minute walk can also cut the risk of dementia by 40 percent, studies show. Taking those findings a step further, neurologists at Jacksonville, Fla.’s Mayo Clinic are studying whether getting patients immobilized by disease to walk can also help stave off mental decline. Dr. Jay Van Gerpen, a neurologist who specializes in gait, is recruiting Parkinson’s patients for a study to help them stay on their feet and retain brain health.

Chemotherapy Advisor, Less-invasive option effective in early esophageal cancer by Kathy Boltz, PhD., … Endoscopic therapy was found to offer long-term survival rates similar to those for esophagectomy, according to lead author Michael B.

FiercePractice Management, Study: Office-based docs more emotionally exhausted than hospital doctors by Debra Beaulieu, Contrary to popular belief, physicians who work in outpatient settings are at just as much risk for burnout as their inpatient counterparts, according to a new study published in the Journal of Hospital Medicine.

Post-Bulletin, Answer Man: Mayo Clinic adds splash of color, Dear Answer Man, I drive past Rochester now and then and rarely go into downtown. Lately, I've noticed that orange-colored building on the skyline. It definitely looks like something non-Mayo. What is it? What an easy question to start my week. That's the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center, at 565 First St. S.W., and while it doesn't match the clinic's melange of gray and off-gray buildings, it's very much a part of the Mayo empire. As it's gone up in stories over the past several months, the Dan has added a badly needed splash of color to the Rochester skyline, especially when viewed from the west at dusk.

Austin Daily Herald, Comfort in trying times: Woman advocates for hospice after husband’s death by Trey Mewes, Mary Hokanson is glad she and her husband, Jim, moved to Mapleview in October 2012, just in time for Jim to seek hospice care.

Reuters, Surrogates often make call to deactivate heart devices by Shereen Jegtvig, People who have implanted heart devices rarely have advance directives indicating whether they want them deactivated near the end of life, according to a new study. So the decision often has to be made by loved ones… "Because of the increasing prevalence of patients with these devices, we were encountering an increasing number of patients approaching the end of life (e.g., due to cancer) requesting that the device be ‘turned off' so that the device doesn't interfere with a peaceful or natural death from unhelpful and uncomfortable ICD shocks," Dr. Paul Mueller told Reuters Health in an email. Mueller, the study's senior author, is chair of the Division of General Internal Medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Additional Coverage: NBCNews.com

Star Tribune, Novel treatments expand device use by Jim Spencer, The Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Richard Marsh helps control brain seizures in epileptic patients with a fiber-optic laser first introduced to treat prostate tumors. .. During a recent operation, Amy Mcintosh, a pediatric orthopedist at the Mayo Clinic, inserted several steel screws into the deformed spine of a 5-year-old patient.

She walks upright, goes to school and plays with her dog, Daisy, in her yard in Roseville.  "It has literally allowed her to hold her chin up high," JunFen's mom, Karin Freihammer, said.

Modern Healthcare, Doctors argue for decision aids to promote patient engagement by Melanie Evans, …Nearly five decades of research exploring what impact better-informed and engaged patients have on medical decisionmaking has found some benefit to patients' health and satisfaction....But that uncertainty does not reduce the ethical obligation to better inform patients, or lessen the promise of tools that help patients understand their options and identify their values, some doctors say. “It is the right thing to do,” said Dr. Victor Montori, associate director of the Health Care Delivery Research Program at the Mayo Clinic Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery. More research will yield more clarity on how tools to promote shared decisionmaking affect health and medical spending. “I don't think the word yet is in on this topic,” he said.
