What are the Sex Differences in Neuromuscular Fatigability in Response to Load Carriage in the Field in British Army Recruits?

Research Paper Title Sex differences in neuromuscular fatigability in response to load carriage in the field in British Army recruits. Background Women are resistant to neuromuscular fatigue compared to men in response to a range of exercise tasks. The sex differences in the neuromuscular responses to load carriage have yet to be investigated. Prospective cohort… Read More

Fit for Duty: Malignant Hyperthermia Susceptibility

Research Paper Title Malignant Hyperthermia Susceptibility and Fitness for Duty. Background Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is an inherited hypermetabolic condition characterised by uncontrolled calcium release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum of skeletal muscle, usually from exposure to inhaled general anesthetics and/or the depolarising neuromuscular blocking agent succinylcholine. Multiple case reports now reveal that crises may be precipitated… Read More

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Diagnosis & the Role of Ultrasonography

Research Paper Title Review of Ultrasonography in the Diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and a Proposed Scanning Protocol. Abstract Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common peripheral compressive neuropathy. Ultrasonography (US) is an emerging technology that can be used in the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome. Although the cross-sectional area is the most studied and… Read More
