The science behind this week's leap from the edge of space - how the human body copes. Why are the chances of surviving a common type of emergency abdominal surgery lower if you have the operation at night or over the weekend? One listener - a former artist and puppeteer - emailed Inside Health about his recent diagnosis of essential tremor. He's finding the shaking of his hands embarrassing and wants to know what can be done about it. And a new design of pyjamas in response to a spate of blocked catheters in patients wearing conventional pyjamas.
