PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The opioid epidemic has been making news and gaining medical attention over the past several months. On the heels of these reports, there is a new study from the annals of the American Thoracic Society. According to the report, the number of deaths associated with opioid overdose in hospital intensive care units has doubled over the past seven years. The cost of treating these victims of overdoses has skyrocketed as well.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Cyber attacks are becoming much more common throughout the world and we are seeing the issues in medicine as well. What we are learning from the cyber attacks is that people who are working in hospital settings may actually be the first to realize there is a problem. The Wannacry cyber attack certainly had major impact throughout Europe and into the United States and the rest of the world.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Pneumonia and sepsis are two major reasons why people are admitted to hospitals. Thanks to antibiotics and rapid care many people will survive these episodes of lung and infection problems and can do quite well. But now there is a new report in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology which suggests that people who are hospitalized for pneumonia or sepsis have a six time higher risk of heart disease incidence in the following year.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
