How sleep helps teens deal with social stress

Adequate sleep can help teens navigate challenging social situations

Date:
February 25, 2020

Michigan State University
Summary:
Study found that adequate sleep allowed students to cope with discrimination and challenges associated with ethnic or racial bias. It also helps them problem-solve more effectively and seek peer support when faced with hardships. A surprising finding in the study was that peers, not parents, were the immediate support that help adolescents cope with discrimination.  

While encouraging good sleep habits in adolescents can be a struggle, said Wang that the benefits of a routine help them cope with the challenges of life in high school and beyond.

"The promotive effect of sleep is so consistent," Wang said. "It reduces how much adolescents ruminate, it promotes their problem solving and it also helps them to better seek support from their peers."https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/02/200225143511.htm

Lab-free infection test could eliminate guesswork for doctors

Date:
February 25, 2020

University of Southampton
Summary:
A new infection test, made up of sheets of paper patterned by lasers, has been developed by researchers to allow diagnosis at the point of care -- helping doctors give patients the right treatment, faster.

Laboratory tests to identify the cause of common infections like urinary tract infections (UTIs) can take up to four days, with doctors having to use broad-action antibiotics as a first line of treatment.

This may not only be less effective than using drugs specific to the infection, but also contributes to an increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria..
