Certain leisure activities may reduce post-surgical delirium among older adults

first_imgDelirium, or the medical term for experiencing sudden confusion, is upsetting for both older adults and their families. In fact, it is one of the most common complications older adults face after surgery (a time often referred to as the “post-operative” period). Researchers believe that older adults who have higher levels of “cognitive reserve” may have a better chance for reducing their chances of developing dementia–which theoretically could reduce the risks for developing delirium.One way to understand cognitive reserve is to think of your brain as a muscle. When you exercise a muscle, you strengthen it. Activities such as reading, playing computer games, singing, emailing and even knitting may act as “exercise” for your brain, “strengthening” it in a way that could help prevent dementia and delirium. A group of researchers from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY, examined whether certain leisure activities known to reduce dementia risks could also reduce the risk of post-surgical delirium. They published their findings in the June issue of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.The researchers examined a group of 142 older adults who were scheduled for elective knee, hip, or spinal surgery. They determined whether or not the people participated in leisure activities such as reading books or newspapers, knitting, emailing, playing cards or other games, working on crossword puzzles, or joining in group meetings. Share on Facebook LinkedIn Email Sharecenter_img Pinterest Of those involved in the study, 32 percent developed post-operative delirium. Those who were diagnosed with delirium had participated in fewer leisure activities before surgery compared with people who didn’t experience delirium.Out of all the activities, reading books, using email, and playing computer games reduced the risk of delirium. Playing computer games and singing were the only two activities that predicted lower severity of delirium.The researchers reported that each additional day of participation in a leisure activity reduced post-operative delirium by 8 percent. According to the researchers, maintaining leisure activities later in life could be an important way to lessen the chances of developing delirium following surgery. This is important, since delirium increases an older adult’s risk for functional decline, dementia, and even mortality. What’s more, people with severe post-operative delirium are at greater risk for being institutionalized and for dying. Share on Twitterlast_img read more

Serna Releases Position Statement On Climate Change

first_imgMarco SernaFrom the Marco Serna for Congress Campaign:Española – Third Congressional District candidate Marco Serna has made public his position paper on Climate Change.While highlighting that climate change was very real and a threat to our survival, he rejects the “Green New Deal” proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three of his opponents in the 2020 Democratic Primary.“I join with the National AFL-CIO in opposing the Green New Deal. If the 10-year plan was implemented, it would have a devastating effect on New Mexico’s economy and the state budget,” Serna said. “It has the potential of ruining our cattle and dairy industry and bankrupting many small businesses. Even more compelling is the fact that it would eliminate the $934 million of gas and oil revenue that pays for our education system. Before I support any proposal, I have to be assured that the best interests of New Mexicans are protected. As written, The Green New Deal is a disaster to New Mexico.”Serna stated that he supported the New Mexico Transaction Act passed by the legislature and signed into law by Gov. Lujan Grisham in 2019.Dubbed the “Mini Green New Deal,” Serna said, “This is the type of change that makes sense for New Mexico. By setting a goal of 100 percent carbon-free by 2045, we do our part in terms of climate change while protecting our economy and education system.”The national  “Green New Deal”  has a 10-year implementation period without providing any details about how oil and cattle producing states will be compensated. If enacted as written, it would devastate our economy and education system.Serna stated that he was in favor of many environmental initiatives, including:  Rejoining the Paris Climate Change Accord;Funding of research for carbon capture and storage plants;Investing in solar, wind, nuclear and renewable energy;Encouraging reforestation and better forest practices;Help fund a geothermal energy program in New Mexico;Supports gradual moving away from fossil fuels; andOpposes fracking.“I am sure that many of my friends in the environmental movement will be upset with my decision to oppose the ‘Green New Deal’,” Serna said in closing. “To me it’s simple, without more details and assurances of mitigation costs, I refuse to support any proposal that will devastate New Mexico’s economy and education system.”last_img read more
