Officials at two Washington, D.C.-area hospitals said Friday they had isolated patients over fears of Ebola after the nation's first case of the deadly virus was confirmed in Dallas this week. But officials at one of the hospitals, Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville, determined late Friday that their patient had malaria, not Ebola, hospital officials said in a statement late Friday. Howard University Hospital quarantined a patient who had recently traveled to Nigeria out of "an abundance of caution," officials said.

Thirty-minute bouts of daily meditation can help ease symptoms of anxiety and depression, a new Johns Hopkins Medicine analysis has found. Researchers at Hopkins analyzed previous studies and found that meditation seemed to provide as much relief for people with mild anxiety and depression as antidepressants. The researchers looked at 47 clinical trials performed through June 2013 involving 3,515 patients. The studies focused on the impact of meditation on mental and physical health issues, including depression, anxiety, stress, insomnia, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and chronic pain.

I would like to add a few comments to the recent article about avoiding Lyme disease ( "Avoiding ticks is the key to preventing Lyme disease," Aug. 21). In mid-March of this year, I worked in the yard raking and bagging leaves left from the winter storms. I had Lyme disease two years ago so I checked myself over carefully and found no tick, rash or bite. However, about a week later I started getting mild headaches. Next, I experienced numbness in my feet, a slight ache in one ear, a mild ache in one hip joint and worst of all, extreme fatigue.

If they awarded medals for linguistic gymnastics, The Sun editorial staff would take the gold. For the hundreds of thousands, soon to be millions, the abrupt cancellation of individual health insurance policies is, according to the Sun, "hardly a calamity" and only "a momentary discomfort. " Relax, you're simply being "shuffled around. " And you truly misunderstood President Obama when he said "if you like it, you can keep it. Period. " In breathtaking tightrope language, the omniscient Sun editors then go on to tell us what the President "really meant.

When cancer experts announced yesterday that they had identified certain symptoms that might indicate ovarian cancer, they sent a pointed message to patients and clinicians: Scrutiny of seemingly benign physical complaints can save lives. The "first national consensus on ovarian cancer symptoms" urged women and clinicians to regard bloating, abdominal pain, eating difficulties and urinary symptoms as possible early warning signs. According to the statement by the American Cancer Society, the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation and the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists, women should contact their doctors if they experience such symptoms almost daily for a few weeks.

Researchers have clarified the vague warning signs of ovarian cancer - the so-called "silent killer" - which could lead to earlier detection and improved survival rates among women with the disease. Many healthy women experience at least some of the symptoms associated with the cancer, which is generally diagnosed only after it has reached an advanced stage. But scientists at the University of Washington School of Medicine and the Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle found that the symptoms - which include bloating, constipation, fatigue and urinary problems - occurred more frequently and with more severity in women with malignancies.

Spring means the same two things every year for Brian Nehus: The grass grows, and his nose runs. The 27-year-old from Kingsville finally had enough and ended up at the Asthma Sinus Allergy Program at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. He learned after a battery of skin tests that he is indeed allergic to his lawn, as well as weeds and cats. "I need to cut the grass," said Nehus, as he studied his arm, which was full of red blotches, the result of the tests. "I have about an acre of land.

With all of the beeping of machines and checking of vital signs, patients in the intensive-care unit often have trouble sleeping. This, along with other hospital conditions, like lack of natural light and familiar surroundings, can lead to disorientation. It's called ICU psychosis, and while it's unsettling to patients and their families, it's not likely to last all that long, according to Dr. Chaitanya Ravi, director of LifeBridge Health Hospitalist Services. What is ICU psychosis and what are the main symptoms of it?

As kids spend time in the water, officials warn parents to keep a close watch to ensure children don't drown. But there is another condition parents should know about: secondary drowning. It afflicts children who survive a near-drowning incident. And though it's uncommon, it can be fatal if left untreated, according to Dr. Melissa Sparrow, clinical director for pediatric inpatient and emergency services at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. What is secondary, or dry, drowning? Secondary drowning is a term that is used by the public, and less so by physicians.

Professional baseball great Tony Gwynn Sr., also known as Mr. Padre, died last month of salivary gland cancer, which he believed was caused by years of using smokeless chewing tobacco. The cancer is a rare form that begins in any of the salivary glands in the mouth, neck or throat. Two adults in 100,000 are diagnosed with salivary gland cancer each year. The chances of survival drop if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. Dr. Patrick K. Ha, with Johns Hopkins Head and Neck Surgery at Greater Baltimore Medical Center, says new types of treatments and therapies are in the works to treat the disease.

I can't say I blame Towson University coach Shawn Nadelen for looking so depressed after the Tigers lost, 8-1, to Penn State on Saturday night. I've been covering college lacrosse since 1987, and that was one of the worst, if not the worst, performance I have ever seen from a team, regardless of division. The Tigers couldn't pitch and catch. They got outhustled and allowed the Nittany Lions to push them around the field. Towson's performance was on the level of a 13- or 14-year-old team in the Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association's B bracket.

The flu that hit the Orioles clubhouse last week affected two more players Tuesday. The Orioles sent center fielder Adam Jones and right-handed relief pitcher Evan Meek home from Camden Yards before the game against the Tampa Bay Rays was postponed because of rain. Neither player would have been available if the Orioles and Rays would have played. “From what I understand, it's going on all over,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “It's not just in our locker room. Unfortunately, a lot of it is unavoidable other than don't touch or communicate with people all day. That's pretty hard to do in this sport.

Carrie O'Connor thought she was a fairly healthy 35-year-old who went on daily jogs and ate well. Then, more than a year ago, she suffered back-to-back heart attacks. The first hit while she was treating herself to baubles at Smyth Jewelers in Timonium. The project manager at T. Rowe Price suddenly felt nauseated and severe pain consumed her stomach. Pain shot up her arm and her jaw ached. All were common symptoms of a heart attack, the paramedics later told her. The second happened later that day when doctors tried to insert a stent to open a blocked left artery they believed had caused the first attack.

A 40-year-old Baltimore doctor who developed symptoms of SARS after a trip to Toronto was admitted yesterday to Johns Hopkins Hospital - two days after he showed up sick for work at another local hospital and was sent home. Health officials said the doctor, a resident at Sinai Hospital working a rotation at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, did not come into contact with patients while he was on the job Monday, although his supervisor was sent home as a precaution. Meanwhile, fears about another possible SARS case in Baltimore eased yesterday as a 26-year-old Hong Kong woman with symptoms of the deadly respiratory illness improved at Maryland General Hospital.

A panel of health experts updated federal guidelines yesterday for treating asthma - a disease that continues to beleaguer Maryland and hits particularly hard in African-American communities. The National Institutes of Health report, containing the first new guidelines in a decade, urges doctors to treat underlying problems that can worsen asthma, such as obesity, and make sure that patients continue taking medications even when symptoms abate. The panel recommends that patients use two kinds of drugs: emergency medications to relieve temporary symptoms and long-term controllers to reduce the risk of life-threatening asthma attacks.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles outfielder David Lough has passed a series of concussion tests and has one more to go through before he can return to games. Lough was scratched from last Friday's game against the Minnesota Twins in Fort Myers, and he hasn't played since after complaining of neck stiffness and concussion symptoms, like dizziness and eye floaters. “They wanted to take precaution and go through a concussion protocol,” Lough said. “I've been taking some tests. I have one more test to take, an impact test, and then I should be cleared to go.” If Lough passes that final test, he's expected to play in Thursday's Triple-A minor league game.
