Anxiety could mask heart disease symptoms in some women

New York women may be interested to learn that females who suffer from an anxiety disorder may have reduced blood flow to the heart during exercise, according to a study. This could cause doctors to miss the signs of heart disease in some female patients.

US roads may be getting riskier

Drivers in New York and other states may face heightened levels of risk as they attempt to navigate the highways. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed that in the first nine months of 2015, the number of national traffic fatalities jumped by more than 9 percent. This relatively sudden increase followed a consistent trend of dropping fatalities, and the NHTSA says it needs to increase its safety efforts in response.

Faster method for Lyme disease detection has been developed

New York residents may have heard that a test that is capable of testing for Lyme disease faster than traditional methods has been developed. Conventional tests often miss the early stages of the disease as there is often no presence of the pathogenic bacteria in the person's blood stream, leading to a potential misdiagnosis.

Self-driving cars inch closer to nationwide acceptance

Legislators in New York and many other states have been urged by technology companies to enact legislation that would allow autonomous vehicles to travel on public roads. California and Nevada have already passed such laws, and government regulators said in a Feb. 4 letter to Google that the artificial intelligence technology used in that company's self-driving cars could be viewed as the driver under federal rules and regulations.

When you are in the hospital after an accident, either for your own injury or for a loved one, it is an emotional and vulnerable time. Your mind is overrun with questions. What do I do next? Who will pay the bills? What will happen if I can't return to work?

1 killed, 1 injured in 2 hit-and-run crashes on same day

While New York City saw a drop in fatal pedestrian traffic accidents from 2014 to 2014, these types of accidents can still occur as two took place within hours of each other on Jan. 30. One happened when a woman in Williamsburg headed to a livery cab on Rodney St. near Hope St. tried to cross the street at around 1:15 a.m. when she was hit by a silver BMW.

New study offers insight for New York patients

A study published on Jan. 21 suggests that patients with colon cancer may need more than surgery if they are CDX2-negative. It is not common for those with stage 2 colon cancer to get chemotherapy because the risks generally outweigh the benefits. However, for at least 5 to 10 percent of the population, the tumors may return if they are treated with just surgery alone, according to the lead author of the study.
