Damar Hamlin’s Medical Care

One week after his mid-game cardiac arrest, NFL safety Damar Hamlin is now at a local hospital in Buffalo for observation to make sure the flight did not affect his condition and lungs. According to doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where Hamlin has received medical care, he was taken off the breathing machine on Friday. He is walking normally with no signs of a neck injury. He is eating a normal diet. He will be getting physical therapy to regain his strength. Further testing will be performed to determine why he had the cardiac arrest. The doctors also elaborated on his care: Hamlin was defibrillated on the field only once, arrived at the hospital within 45 minutes of his collapse, and in the hospital he received aggressive targeted temperature management.

Serious Infection Raises Dementia Risk

The risk of a diagnosis of dementia is higher after a hospitalization with infection. In a study of 16,000 people followed over 30 years, those who were hospitalized with infection had a 70% increased risk of subsequent dementia. This could help prioritize dementia screening for certain individuals. Inflammation in the brain could be a contributing factor. (Source: MedPage Today, J. George, 1.9.23)
