New Pain-Free Syringes Will Actually Stab You Twice

From Gizmodo:

It’s counter-intuitive, but a new syringe design could eliminate the pain when getting a shot by using two separate needles that work in quick succession. 

The first needle is actually considerably smaller than the second, and delivers a small amount of local anesthesia that numbs the skin around the entry point.

Sharing a bed with a parent has become a prominent SIDS risk

From MedPage Today:

Since public health messages to lay sleeping infants on their backs have become pervasive, the risk factor profile for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) has changed in recent years, researchers said.

Sharing a bed with a parent has become a prominent risk and was present in about 40% of cases, Henry Krous, MD, of Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, and colleagues reported in Pediatrics.

They also warned that the condition appears to rise from a combination of several risk factors, not just one.

“Risk reduction campaigns emphasizing the importance of avoiding multiple and simultaneous risks are essential to prevent SIDS,” they wrote.
