  • Oxygen therapy increases amputation risk in diabetes
    Data on more than 6,200 diabetes patients with foot ulcers revealed those who received oxygen treatment plus standard care did not show better wound healing than those who had only standard care. Researchers also found patients in the oxygen treatment group were more than twice as likely as those in the control group to undergo amputations. The results were published in Diabetes Care.

  • Senator backs Medicare bill for greater rehab coverage
    Medicare would cover more nursing home costs under a bill to be introduced by Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. Observational stays would count toward a required three-day hospitalization before Medicare covers nursing facility rehabilitation. "If you are holed up in a hospital bed for days on end, it shouldn't matter what your billing status is, and this plan will save ... seniors thousands," Schumer said.
