    Sample Size Calculation for a Hypothesis Test

    One of the most common causes for problems we see in manuscripts at JAMA is an inappropriately calculated study sample size. This seemingly mysterious process is explained by Lynne Stokes, PhD, professor of Statistical Science at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.

    Understanding Pragmatic Trials

    Understanding Pragmatic Trials

    Generalizability of randomized trials is always limited because of the super-selectivity of the patients enrolled in these trials and the very controlled conditions in which clinical care is delivered. Pragmatic trials are performed in order to provide guidance for how to best deliver clinical care in situations that more closely resemble actual clinical scenarios. Hal Sox, MD, director of peer review for the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), explains how these trials work and what clinical questions they answer.

    The Effect of Hearing Loss on Cognitive Decline

    The Effect of Hearing Loss on Cognitive Decline

    Even limited hearing loss might be associated with cognitive decline. If true, early intervention with hearing aids might help people have better cognitive performance. Michael Johns III, MD, online editor for JAMA Otolaryngology, speaks with Justin Golub, MD, assistant professor of otolaryngology at Columbia University, whose research has shown that very mild hearing loss can be associated with cognitive disability.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Ventilatory Management for COVID-Related Respiratory Failure

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Ventilatory Management for COVID-Related Respiratory Failure

    Management of COVID-19-related respiratory failure differs from what is necessary for ARDS. Rather than having alveolar edema, COVID-19 patients have pulmonary vascular dysregulation. Gas exchange is severely compromised with little reduction in lung compliance. Ventilatory support for COVID-19 patients requires higher than normal tidal volumes with minimal PEEP and allowance for higher than usual serum CO2 levels. How the unique pathophysiology of respiratory failure should be treated is discussed by John J. Marini, MD, professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota.

Very Good

Very fun and interesting content. I am a 3rd year medical student, and I really enjoy the historical perspectives and the broad overviews of the the topics coupled with detailed information. The production quality and scripts are also very well done. I think JAMA Clinical Reviews has mastered the Conversational style of instruction. Keep up the good work.
