Two deaths are being investigated by United States health authorities linked to the use of an aromatherapy spray that contains a strange bacteria that causes melioidosis, a disease that is difficult to identify and it has rarely been seen in America.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced this Friday in a statement that the Walmart chain of stores is recalling almost 4,000 bottles sold in their stores.

This is the product with the English labeling “Better Homes and Gardens Essential. Oil Infused Aromatherapy Room Spray with Gemstones ?in lavender, chamomile, lemon, lime and eucalyptus, sandalwood and vanilla presentations.

The CPSC urged anyone with the spray to return it to Walmart instead of throwing it away. The return must be made in “clean, transparent and resealable bags” and placed in a cardboard box.

?The aromatherapy room spray sold for approximately 55 Walmart stores nationwide and online at walmart.com from February 2021 to October 2021 for about $ 4, ?the CPSC said.

Dangerous bacteria bottled in Walmart

The reason for recalling the product is that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determined that the bottle of the aromatic aerosol product contained the bacteria. Burkholderia pseudomallei, a rare and dangerous organism that causes melioidosis.

“The CDC has been investigating a cluster of four confirmed cases of melioidosis, including two deaths in the US,” said the CPSC. “Although the CDC has not confirmed the source of these four infections, the bottle with the same type of bacteria was found in the home of one of the people who died of melioidosis.”

The bacteria that usually cause melioidosis they are not in the country. These organisms are most commonly found in contaminated soil and water in tropical areas of Southeast Asia or northern Australia.

The CPSC said that none of the four people diagnosed with melioidosis in the US reported having traveled outside the country.

Leader of the table Ljubljana made short work of 5-0 at home with EC Grand Immo VSV, as did second-placed Fehervar 6-1 at home with Steinbach Black Wings Linz. The Moser Medical Graz 99ers also managed to break free with a 5-1 victory in Bratislava.

HC Znojmo also prevailed at the Dornbirn Bulldogs with 5: 1, and in the duel between South and North Tyrol the TIWAG Innsbruck Haie retained the upper hand against HC Pustertal with 4: 2. Defending champion KAC was able to look forward to a 4-2 home win against HC Bozen in a repetition of last year’s final after a 2-1 deficit.

In the table, Olimpija from the Slovenian capital continues to lead with 26 points and two points ahead of his Hungarian rival Fehervar. With five points behind Ljubljana, Salzburg is the best Austrian club just ahead of the KAC. At the bottom of the table are the Black Wings from Linz again. The Upper Austrians are one point behind the newcomer HC Pustertal, who was placed in front of them.

Järvinen shoots Salzburg into luck

The match of the severely weakened Salzburg team against the recently slightly improved Capitals was not very stirring. The party only picked up speed late, but nobody brought the puck into the case in regular time or in overtime. Jan-Mikael Järvinen made the decision in favor of the third-placed ?bulls? in the penalty shoot-out after a noteworthy hook. The Finn was the only one among a total of six shooters who scored his attempt.

In Klagenfurt, Rok Ticar (10th), who had recovered from illness, shot the champions into the lead from a tight angle. The guests equalized shortly after the first break and a little later also the 2: 1. Samuel Witting (35th) tied again before the end of the middle third. In the final third, Paul Postma (42nd / PP) and again Ticar (52nd) secured the home win of the Carinthians, who are now fourth.

The IVAucher Program is a system of incentives from the Portuguese Government, which will allow consumers to accumulate the amount of VAT paid in the accommodation, culture and restaurant sectors. But there is now something new!

The Government will use the IVAucher program to lower fuel prices by 10 cents per liter. Know how.

VATucher: ?0.10 per liter until March 2022 up to a maximum of 50 liters/month

The finance minister announced this Friday that the Government will start returning 10 cents per liter of fuel to the Portuguese in November by March 2022, up to a maximum of 50 liters per month. For this, the Government will use the IVAucher platform.

The maximum monthly fuel discount will be five euros per person and 25 euros for the total of five months. Joăo Leăo estimates that this ?discount? for taxpayers will cost 133 million euros in five months.

The finance minister justified the maximum limit of 50 liters per month with the ?average standard of monthly consumption? of the Portuguese and with the ?high? financial impact of the measure.

Fuels with 10 cents off per liter?  IVAucher is the "secret"

Regarding the operation, there are not many details yet. However, from what is known, it will be similar to IVAucher. The taxpayer will first have to pay the full cost of the fuel that is attested, asking for an invoice with the taxpayer number (NIF). Then you will have to join the IVAucher program as well as the petrol stations.

The discount is returned to the bank account ?after the first eligible monthly consumption?, according to a Government document referring to this new measure.

This is a review of Dune, so there will be spoilers below.


The Beautiful Movie Is Accessible to Non-Book Readers

It?s been decades since I last read Dune. Although I was obsessed with the book series at the time, I now only remember a few specific plot points and many intricacies are lost on me. However, my husband ? who watched with me ? had not read the books and he was able to easily follow along. I would say that if you haven?t read the book, don?t let that stop you. There are some scenes ? such as the importance of Paul?s final fight and the importance of his visions ? that might be just a little less impactful to non-book readers who are watching. But these are minor nuances that don?t detract from enjoying the film at all.

The fourth wave of the corona pandemic is escalating dramatically in Russia. The number of cases and deaths is increasing every day. Independent researchers are now sounding the alarm: The Kremlin’s official figures are “invented”.

Independent experts are making serious allegations against the Russian government: The data published by the Kremlin on the situation of the corona pandemic have been manipulated. The number of infections and deaths is actually much higher. This is reported by the Washington Post. The criticism has already cost the experts dearly: at least three researchers have already been dismissed or have resigned from their posts in government or at state universities under pressure from their superiors.

The official Russian statistics show around 223,000 (as of October 22, 2021) corona deaths. But according to the independent demographer Alexey Raksha, this number is far too low: According to his calculations, corona excess mortality – probably the most reliable indicator of deaths from Sars-CoV-2 – is actually already around 750,000. That would mean almost 500,000 more deaths.

Raksha based his calculations on figures from the Russian statistics agency Rosstat. In a report in the Moscow Times, the number was estimated at around 660,000. Raksha assumes an even higher figure: “In fact, excess mortality now averages more than 2,000 people per day,” says the researcher. He lost his job last year when the official statistics agency Rosstat had fired him. The reason for this was that the registration authority Rospotrebnadzor apparently recorded death numbers separately, which were not included in the official statistics. Raksha exposed the case.

The corona cases in Russia have recently increased dramatically. Around 37,000 new infections were confirmed within 24 hours, the second day in a row, more than ever since the beginning of the pandemic, the authorities say. 1,064 other people died in connection with a corona infection, the fourth day record in a row. But is that also true?

According to the Washington Post, the scientists accuse the authorities of manipulating the statistics and thus preventing the pandemic from being contained. The reason for this they see political goals of the Kremlin, which does not tolerate criticism of its pandemic criticism. Demographer Alexey Raksha is convinced: “You (the authorities) are just making up numbers, literally.”

The independent analyst and biologist Alexei Kouprianov does not trust the official accounts either. “The data (for Russia) are absolutely unreliable,” Kouprianov told the Washington Post. In 2020, Kouprianov founded a panel of experts on social media to get an idea of ??the pandemic for yourself. A little later he lost his job on the St. Petersburg campus of the Higher School of Economics.

“I discovered this strange pattern”

Another problem arises from the numbers apparently embellished by the Kremlin: Corona deniers on social media use the souped-up statistics to declare Corona over and rail against the vaccination. But a pandemic cannot be fought with falsified data – sooner or later the Russian government will be afflicted by the problem.

The economist Tatiana Mikhailova does not believe the official authorities in Russia either. She is an expert in data analysis and worked in the Russian Academy of Economics and Public Service under the President of the Russian Federation (RANEPA). She discovered a pattern in the corona reporting system in many Russian regions: Instead of the well-known pandemic curve, the total number of cases fluctuated in the regional reports. The numbers for the largest city in the region increased in one day while the numbers for the rest of the region decreased – as if the city and the larger region were alternately seeing increases.

“I discovered this strange pattern in many regions,” said Mikhailova in the Washington Post. So she came to the conclusion that the official figures must be much lower than the actual figures – and so went public. Mikhailova has now also lost her job: At the pressure of her superior, the data analyst resigned from her post at the academy. The academy had forbidden her to give interviews. She felt it was her “duty as a scientist” to publish her revelations.

Russian authorities had repeatedly emphasized in official statements that they had the pandemic better under control than many Western countries. The truth looks grimmer: with 43 million Russians fully vaccinated on October 14, according to the Ministry of Health, the Russian vaccination rate is one of the lowest in the world. This is how the British Global Change Data Lab assesses it. The value corresponds to about 30 percent of the 144.4 million inhabitants.

By comparison, the vaccination rate in the United States is 56 percent. In Germany, 69.1 percent of people are fully vaccinated.

Putin rules out compulsory vaccinations

The government sees the main cause of the increase in infections in the low vaccination rate. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in mid-October that the death rate was high because of the “unacceptably low vaccination rate”. Nevertheless, there will be no nationwide compulsory vaccination, assured Peskov’s superior, President Vladimir Putin.

Otherwise people would buy fake certificates, argues the Kremlin chief. It is better to convince them that immunization is better than contracting corona.

In view of the increasing numbers, the authorities recently tightened the corona restrictions. Putin ordered a week off for the beginning of November. In the capital Moscow, all shops outside of everyday needs will have to close from October 28th. Only shops such as pharmacies and supermarkets are allowed to remain open.

Mayor Sergei Sobyanin has already publicly sounded the alarm: “The worst scenario has come true in Moscow.” Schools and kindergartens should therefore also close. Restaurants and cafes are only allowed to offer take-away food and drinks. Theaters and museums are only allowed to open to a limited extent. All measures could be extended if necessary, warns Sobjanin.

“The hospitals are overburdened,” quoted the Washington Post as quoting the chairman of the independent union of health workers, Andrei Konoval. In Yekaterinburg in central Russia, ambulance drivers are said to have been forced to work 24-hour shifts, reports the independent medium “Znak”. And the Russian Minister of Health Mikhail Muraschko urged retired doctors to return to their old jobs and help out.

In addition, there is the danger of a new mutant of the Corona variant Delta. The virus called AY4.2 has two additional mutations that need to be monitored closely, the World Health Organization (WHO) said. Russia has already recorded the first cases, as a representative of the consumer protection agency Rospotrebnadzor said, according to the Interfax agency.

The fourth wave of the corona pandemic is escalating dramatically in Russia. The number of cases and deaths is increasing every day. Independent researchers are now sounding the alarm: The Kremlin’s official figures are “invented”.

Independent experts are making serious allegations against the Russian government: The data published by the Kremlin on the situation of the corona pandemic have been manipulated. The number of infections and deaths is actually much higher. This is reported by the Washington Post. The criticism has already cost the experts dearly: at least three researchers have already been dismissed or have resigned from their posts in government or at state universities under pressure from their superiors.

The official Russian statistics show around 223,000 (as of October 22, 2021) corona deaths. But according to the independent demographer Alexey Raksha, this number is far too low: According to his calculations, corona excess mortality – probably the most reliable indicator of deaths from Sars-CoV-2 – is actually already around 750,000. That would mean almost 500,000 more deaths.

Raksha based his calculations on figures from the Russian statistics agency Rosstat. In a report in the Moscow Times, the number was estimated at around 660,000. Raksha assumes an even higher figure: “In fact, excess mortality now averages more than 2,000 people per day,” says the researcher. He lost his job last year when the official statistics agency Rosstat had fired him. The reason for this was that the registration authority Rospotrebnadzor apparently recorded death numbers separately, which were not included in the official statistics. Raksha exposed the case.

The corona cases in Russia have recently increased dramatically. Around 37,000 new infections were confirmed within 24 hours, the second day in a row, more than ever since the beginning of the pandemic, the authorities say. 1,064 other people died in connection with a corona infection, the fourth day record in a row. But is that also true?

According to the Washington Post, the scientists accuse the authorities of manipulating the statistics and thus preventing the pandemic from being contained. The reason for this they see political goals of the Kremlin, which does not tolerate criticism of its pandemic criticism. Demographer Alexey Raksha is convinced: “You (the authorities) are just making up numbers, literally.”

The independent analyst and biologist Alexei Kouprianov does not trust the official accounts either. “The data (for Russia) are absolutely unreliable,” Kouprianov told the Washington Post. In 2020, Kouprianov founded a panel of experts on social media to get an idea of ??the pandemic for yourself. A little later he lost his job on the St. Petersburg campus of the Higher School of Economics.

“I discovered this strange pattern”

Another problem arises from the numbers apparently embellished by the Kremlin: Corona deniers on social media use the souped-up statistics to declare Corona over and rail against the vaccination. But a pandemic cannot be fought with falsified data – sooner or later the Russian government will be afflicted by the problem.

The economist Tatiana Mikhailova does not believe the official authorities in Russia either. She is an expert in data analysis and worked in the Russian Academy of Economics and Public Service under the President of the Russian Federation (RANEPA). She discovered a pattern in the corona reporting system in many Russian regions: Instead of the well-known pandemic curve, the total number of cases fluctuated in the regional reports. The numbers for the largest city in the region increased in one day while the numbers for the rest of the region decreased – as if the city and the larger region were alternately seeing increases.

“I discovered this strange pattern in many regions,” said Mikhailova in the Washington Post. So she came to the conclusion that the official figures must be much lower than the actual figures – and so went public. Mikhailova has now also lost her job: At the pressure of her superior, the data analyst resigned from her post at the academy. The academy had forbidden her to give interviews. She felt it was her “duty as a scientist” to publish her revelations.

Russian authorities had repeatedly emphasized in official statements that they had the pandemic better under control than many Western countries. The truth looks grimmer: with 43 million Russians fully vaccinated on October 14, according to the Ministry of Health, the Russian vaccination rate is one of the lowest in the world. This is how the British Global Change Data Lab assesses it. The value corresponds to about 30 percent of the 144.4 million inhabitants.

By comparison, the vaccination rate in the United States is 56 percent. In Germany, 69.1 percent of people are fully vaccinated.

Putin rules out compulsory vaccinations

The government sees the main cause of the increase in infections in the low vaccination rate. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in mid-October that the death rate was high because of the “unacceptably low vaccination rate”. Nevertheless, there will be no nationwide compulsory vaccination, assured Peskov’s superior, President Vladimir Putin.

Otherwise people would buy fake certificates, argues the Kremlin chief. It is better to convince them that immunization is better than contracting corona.

In view of the increasing numbers, the authorities recently tightened the corona restrictions. Putin ordered a week off for the beginning of November. In the capital Moscow, all shops outside of everyday needs will have to close from October 28th. Only shops such as pharmacies and supermarkets are allowed to remain open.

Mayor Sergei Sobyanin has already publicly sounded the alarm: “The worst scenario has come true in Moscow.” Schools and kindergartens should therefore also close. Restaurants and cafes are only allowed to offer take-away food and drinks. Theaters and museums are only allowed to open to a limited extent. All measures could be extended if necessary, warns Sobjanin.

“The hospitals are overburdened,” quoted the Washington Post as quoting the chairman of the independent union of health workers, Andrei Konoval. In Yekaterinburg in central Russia, ambulance drivers are said to have been forced to work 24-hour shifts, reports the independent medium “Znak”. And the Russian Minister of Health Mikhail Muraschko urged retired doctors to return to their old jobs and help out.

In addition, there is the danger of a new mutant of the Corona variant Delta. The virus called AY4.2 has two additional mutations that need to be monitored closely, the World Health Organization (WHO) said. Russia has already recorded the first cases, as a representative of the consumer protection agency Rospotrebnadzor said, according to the Interfax agency.

This year, Zrní celebrated twenty years on the scene and on Thursday also baptized “Heavenly Peace” after a year and a half. The godparents became the most faithful – the technicians.

As a big fan of Zrní, I could not miss the twice delayed baptism of the sixth line of the band “Nebeský klid”. Much has been written about the name and atmosphere of the album. And the interplay of circumstances provided a broader context than planned. With the release of the act in early March last year, the infamous, ubiquitous coronavirus spectacle also started. The baptism was therefore postponed several times. Unger & spol. they performed in many places, but for the first time at the Archa Theater. The space is nice and they had no problem filling it with visitors. But the hall gave me a somewhat gloomy impression, which was intensified by the unfortunate lighting of the group. Nature shots ran in the background, but so raw, dark, often different corners of the forest and so on. At the same time, the atmosphere somehow corresponded to the christened album, which in my opinion is quite sad, although others may perceive it hopefully, cheerfully.

But what is positive news that the Hero has been found (a typical light figure associated with a ten-year-old studio film “The Hero of a Computer Game Goes to the World” – author’s note)who was missing ten concerts. He can thus hold an imaginary protective hand over others. The setlist exactly copied the current recording. The first was live “Peace and Rain and Forgiveness”, which is thanks to the words “Stand with us in difficult moments / Stand with us insincere / Stand with us unwilling? vindictive? unbelievers” such (coronavirus) prayer. During it, the singer applauded as furiously as if he were in a trance (and not just for this song).

The actual act of baptism took place after the musicians played the title song. The main godparents were sound master Petr Jane?ek and light master Petr Ol?a. They have been connected with Zrní for 5.5 years since the concerts in Trhové Sviny. The baptism on the stage was supported by other guests, such as another sound master Viki, artist Ale? Fulín (author of the visuals of the last records – author’s note) or Robert, whom others called a manager over alcohol. It was also justified. It was baptized with beer, which Robert had brewed especially for the occasion. Jane?ek recalled that he was glad that they finally wanted the band delivery of Pistachio, because there was only suffering with it. Fí?a mentioned that Jukla’s daughter Viola was born a week ago, so she also drank to her health.

As another guest, they invited Nina Marinová, who complemented them during “Let’s Fly Together on a White Horse” and represented “Honza’s wife Bára,” who was dedicated to foreign friends from Scandinavia, who also visited the Ark. Until the third, she sang the song “Dva” with them. She admitted that they practically didn’t have time to rehearse, so the performance on stage was their real (almost untrained) premiere. The members of the band did not comment on anything extra until the moment of the ceremony, they simply played and enjoyed this long-prayed moment. Honza Unger thanked those present for attending the baptism and remarked that there would be another one in a moment. No wonder – this period encouraged artists to creative activity. Now we can only look forward to more material, which will complement the already released singles “Millimeter”, “Sweet Trip” and “Inauguration”.

A consortium of entities associated with the Nanoracks company will be responsible for the planned construction of the first independent space station with commercial use (called Starlab). Voyager Space and Lockheed Martin have so far confirmed their commitment to cooperation.

Starlab is to be a permanently manned 340 cubic meter orbital platform designed to conduct research, support industrial activities and “ensure continued American presence” in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Starlab is expected to reach initial operational capability by the end of 2027.

In order to meet the expectations of the US government, the international community and the market needs, Starlab is to offer the possibility of conducting advanced experiments in space, including research on materials, plants and health of people staying at the station. “From the outset, Nanoracks sought to own and operate a private space station to fully address market demand,” said Jeffrey Manber, CEO and co-founder of Nanoracks. “Our team has spent the last decade exploring the subject, building understanding of customer needs, tracking market developments, and investing in private ISS equipment such as Bishop Airlock,” he added.

The Starlab project is also to be correlated with the assumptions signaled by NASA for the future maintenance of a manned presence in orbit. The US space agency recently announced the Commercial Low-Earth Orbit Destination (CLD) project to support the development of private space stations. CLD will stimulate the multi-faceted use of LEO and provide opportunities for science research before the International Space Station (ISS) is decommissioned.

As a leader of the Starlab project, Nanoracks will benefit from over ten years of experience from being involved in the operation of the ISS. Voyager Space, the majority shareholder of Nanoracks, will lead the strategy and equity investments, with Lockheed Martin serving as contractor and technical integrator.

The basic elements of the Starlab space station are to consist of: a large inflatable habitat module (habitat) designed and built by Lockheed Martin, in which the crew will be staying; metal docking node; power and drive segment; large robotic arm for loading and unloading; and a laboratory for carrying out various research, scientific and engineering operations. Starlab will be able to host up to four crew members continuously.

“Lockheed Martin’s expertise in the production of complex space vehicles and systems, combined with Nanoracks’ commercial business innovation and Voyager’s financial expertise, will enable our team to create a customer-centric space station that will drive our vision for the future,” said Lisa Callahan, vice president and general manager Commercial Civil Space at Lockheed Martin. “We have invested heavily in habitat technology, which allows us to propose a cost-effective and mission-oriented project for Starlab,” she assured.

The project aims to provide customers around the world with access to research in the field of science and production, and the possibility of organizing sovereign manned space missions. Starlab will also serve tourism and other commercial and business activities in space. “Voyager Space is very confident in Starlab’s business model and its ability to be commercially balanced over the long term,” assured Dylan Taylor, Voyager Space president and CEO.

This is a new element in the already heavy file of the University Hospital Institute (IHU) of Marseille. For several years, the IHU has been carrying out, under the direction of the controversial professor Didier Raoult, irregular clinical trials on treatments for tuberculosis, writes Mediapart, Friday October 22.

“Since 2017”, l’IHU “Leads a wild experiment against tuberculosis, causing in several patients, including a minor of 17 years, serious complications”, explains the newspaper, which quotes several employees of the institute on condition of anonymity. This experiment was “Initiated by its director, Didier Raoult, and his deputy, Michel Drancourt”, precise Mediapart.

According to the site, which is also based on e-mail exchanges and hospitalization reports, IHU teams tested a combination of four drugs whose joint effectiveness had never been evaluated.

These trials were carried out despite the refusal of the National Medicines Safety Agency, the ANSM, which must give its approval to research requiring experiments on human beings, in particular clinical trials of drugs.

Several studies conducted in a way “Not eligible”

Asked by Agence France-Presse, the Marseille IHU did not immediately respond. The ANSM, without mentioning these trials in particular, acknowledged that several studies had been carried out in a manner “Not eligible” by the organization, and said they have initiated “Adequate suites”, without further details.

Information from Mediapart come in addition to revelations published during the summer by L?Express, according to which many studies carried out at the IHU for years broke free from the rules governing experiments carried out on human beings.

Marseille hospitals, one of the six founding members of the IHU, for their part estimated in a press statement that if these “Breaches” were confirmed, they “Would be of real gravity by their supposed scale, by the time during which they would have lasted, by the possible implication of several professionals and if necessary their full conscience and their repeated desire to register outside the regulatory framework”.

The AP-HM has promised to tie up with “All stakeholders as soon as possible in order to analyze the follow-up to be given to this alert and to initiate, if necessary, all useful investigations [pour] know the reality of the facts ?, reserving the possibility also to seize the parquet floor of Marseilles.

The IHU and Mr. Raoult encountered a strong media aura at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, in 2020, by promoting hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the disease, despite the lack of proven effect. Several studies have been carried out by the IHU to confirm the interest of this treatment, but they have been criticized by many scientists as to their methodology and their conditions.

More recently, Mr. Raoult has been criticized for advertising a Brazilian study defending a treatment with hydroxycholoroquine, when these trials then caused a wide scandal for having been carried out on patients without their consent, and for giving rise to the publication of truncated results.

Didier Raoult will leave the head of the IHU at the end of June at the latest, the founding members of the institute having wished to launch a succession process. He retired this summer as a university professor-hospital practitioner.

In an article published in Science, Helen Colby, an assistant professor of marketing at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business in Indianapolis, and a co-author note that it is time for many doctors to stop relying on their use of mental shortcuts, usually called decision rules or heuristics, when making decisions about patient care with limited cognitive resources.

Colby, who researches health decision-making, and Meng Li, an associate professor and director of undergraduate studies in the Department of Health and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Colorado Denver, were invited to provide commentary on a paper also published in Science by Manasvini Singh, an assistant professor of health economics at the University of Massachusetts.

Colby and Li?s article, ?Physicians? flawed heuristics in the delivery room; Complicated childbirths can influence later decision-making,? also appears in the Oct. 15 edition of the journal.

Using electronic health records of more than 86,000 deliveries, Singh found that delivering physicians were influenced not just by the indications of the current patient but also by the outcome of their most recent previous delivery. For example, when a physician experienced a negative outcome with a vaginal delivery they were more likely to choose to deliver the next baby by cesarean section and vice versa.

?Most of the time, the heuristics do save time and resources and they produce pretty good outcomes. But in some situations, pretty good is not good enough,? Colby said. ?When lives are on the line, any improvement in decision making can have life-saving consequences.?

Colby and Li highlight that a ?win-stay-lose-shift? heuristic has been identified in other contexts as a learning strategy, but said it only works well in certain settings.

?In the medical context, this heuristic would be rational only if the specifics of the prior patient matched the specifics of the current patient and thus provided a useful learning experience. In that case, if one patient?s delivery went wrong, it can tell the physician that the same delivery plan may not work well with another patient with very similar characteristics and indications,? they wrote. ?However, two patients who happen to have consecutive deliveries by the same physician are not expected to be highly similar.?

They are not suggesting that physicians? use of these mental shortcuts lack expertise or training, but the research demonstrated that it a common tendency, even among more experienced doctors.

Colby and Li offer several suggestions to help physicians overcome their reliance on maladaptive heuristics or decision rules.

First the phenomenon needs to be acknowledged within the profession without condemning physicians.

?Although understanding decision biases usually does not entirely ameliorate them, teaching doctors about heuristics may promote the acceptance of potential interventions,? they wrote. ?More research and clinical efforts need to focus on designing and testing decision aids that are beneficial to patients and user-friendly to physicians.

?In addition to making sure that the decision aid has a high degree of scientific accuracy in recommending the optimal treatment option, studies also need to examine whether physicians will accept and use such recommendations,? they added. ?Physicians may have understandable concerns about recommendations from a ?black box.’?

Colby also said this is not an attempt to sound an alarm on doctors or castigate them for not always making optimal decisions. Rather, it simply highlights an important fact ? like all experts, doctors are human.

?We patients, and often the doctors themselves, want to think of doctors and other healthcare staff as omniscient and omnipotent ? a bastion of strength when we are in our time of need,? she said. ?Doctors are regularly rated as the most respected profession in the United States, and a recent study found that doctors are often ascribed godlike powers.

?We cannot seek to assist medical decision making without first admitting the nature of the decision makers,? she added. ?Helping doctors to make better decisions through reduced reliance on heuristics and decision rules should be a public health priority ? It may be scary to admit that doctors are human, but it is the best thing we can do to help them, and ultimately to help them help us.?
