Gastrointestinal morbidity as primary outcome measure in studies comparing crystalloid and colloid within a goal-directed therapy.
(British journal of anaesthesia, 2015-01)
Emergency department point-of-care ultrasound in out-of-hospital and in-ED cardiac arrest.
Point-of-care ultrasound has been suggested to improve outcomes from advanced cardiac life support (ACLS), but no large studies have explored how it should be incorporated into ACLS. Our aim was to determine whether cardiac ...
Post-operative opioid pain management patterns for patients who receive hip surgery.
(Substance abuse treatment, prevention, and policy, 2017-03-16)
Identifying optimal, post-operative opioid management strategies is a priority of health providers and government agencies. At present, there are no studies we are aware of that have formally investigated opioid prescribing ...
A three dimensional nerve map of human bladder trigone.
(Neurourology and urodynamics, 2017-04)
Central efferent and afferent neural pathways to and from the human urinary bladder are well-characterized, but the location and arborization of these nerves as they traverse the serosa, muscularis, and urothelial layers ...
Validation of the modified Sgarbossa criteria for acute coronary occlusion in the setting of left bundle branch block: A retrospective case-control study.
(American heart journal, 2015-12)
The modified Sgarbossa criteria were proposed in a derivation study to be superior to the original criteria for diagnosing acute coronary occlusion (ACO) in left bundle branch block (LBBB). The new rule replaces the third ...
Genome-wide identification of autosomal genes with allelic imbalance of chromatin state.
(PloS one, 2017-01)
In mammals, monoallelic gene expression can result from X-chromosome inactivation, genomic imprinting, and random monoallelic expression (RMAE). Epigenetic regulation of RMAE is not fully understood. Here we analyze allelic ...
Evaluation of T-Wave Morphology in Patients With Left Bundle Branch Block and Suspected Acute Coronary Syndrome.
(The Journal of emergency medicine, 2016-09)
T-wave morphology in the setting of left bundle branch block (LBBB) has been proposed as an indicator of myocardial ischemia.We sought to identify T-wave morphology findings in patients with LBBB that predict non-ST-segment ...
Interactions between life stress factors and carrying the APOE4 allele adversely impact self-reported health in old adults.
(The Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences, 2011-10)
Based on the multiple logistic regression analysis of data from a random sample of 1,023 old adults collected in Taiwan in 2000, we found that interactions between carrying the APOE4 allele and one of four life stress factors ...
Cell type-specific changes in retinal ganglion cell function induced by rod death and cone reorganization in rats.
(Journal of neurophysiology, 2017-07)
We have determined the impact of rod death and cone reorganization on the spatiotemporal receptive fields (RFs) and spontaneous activity of distinct retinal ganglion cell (RGC) types. We compared RGC function between healthy ...
Critical Care Air Transport Team severe traumatic brain injury short-term outcomes during flight for Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom.
(Journal of the Royal Army Medical Corps, 2017-10)
Our understanding of the expertise and equipment required to air transport injured soldiers with severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) continue to evolve.We conducted a retrospective chart review of characteristics, ...
