This paper briefly reviews the benefits of using age-progression techniques in hypnotherapy, followed by a detailed explanation and illustration of the "back-from-the-future" technique with two case examples, including their outcome. The patients…

We have developed an exercise designed to give students practice calculating arterial O2 content, O2 delivery, physiological dead space, dead space and alveolar ventilation, and alveolar partial pressure of O2 and CO2. The exercise is in the form of…

This essay explores how breast cancer and mastectomy are portrayed in twentieth-century North American literature. The purpose in doing so is to examine our understandings of how women in contemporary North American culture may experience this…

Male mice treated with MPTP or vehicle were tested for their ability to demonstrate a memory-recognition response as evaluated in a habituation-dishabituation task. Treatment with MPTP severely disrupted the male's habituation-dishabituation response…

Male retired breeder C57/Bl and CD-1 mice were treated with either MPTP or its vehicle. At 7-10 days post-treatment, catecholamine concentrations within the olfactory bulbs (OB) and hypothalamus were determined. Norepinephrine concentrations within…

Identification of a 3100-year-old lithopedion in the Archaic Southwest antedates its first clinical notation by 21 00 years. It was only the ''autopsy'' of time (excavation of the site) that allowed its presence to be brought to light.

A review of The Career Development Quarterly was conducted for a 20-year period (Volumes 23 through 42). A total of 791 articles were classified into the 14 substantive areas of career research and practice devised by Fitzgerald and Rounds (1989).…

Over the last two decades the emergency department has become the primary source of health care for a large segment of the population. While this practice is discouraged by ED staff and primary care providers, it is an unfortunate reality. Recent…

Ampicillin/sulbactam (1.0-2.0 g ampicillin and 0.5-1.0 g sulbactam) and cefoxitin (1.0-2.0 g), both administered intravenously once every 6 hours, were compared in patients with lower respiratory tract infections. Thirty-two of the 51…

This study examined the validity and reliability of full and short versions of the Arthritis Impact Measurement Scales (AIMS). One hundred fifty-five patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis followed at a University Hospital Rheumatology Clinic completed…

The neurochemical heterogeneity of the rat striatum was assessed in vivo by measuring subregional changes in extracellular dopamine and DOPAC by in vivo electrochemistry and microdialysis in response to amphetamine and the D2 antagonist,…

Clinical situations that require the use of systemic antibiotic therapy are common. Because millions of women choose oral contraceptives for birth control, the potential for interaction between these drugs frequently has to be considered. We review…

The following article presents a comprehensive overview of the practical aspects of radiation protection for diagnostic radiology. The topics discussed include background radiation levels, typical exposure levels for radiologic technologists, risk…

Historically, appendicitis in the elderly is associated with higher morbidity and mortality. Ninety-six patients over 60 years of age with appendicitis treated over a 10-year period were reviewed. Only 20% presented classically with anorexia, fever,…

In rats, restraint exposure potentiates the magnitude and duration of analgesia following both the peripheral and intracerebroventricular administration of several opioid agonists as compared to non-stressed controls. It has been suggested that the…

Due to the curved path they follow, the visual callosal projections to areas OC1 and OC2 of the rat visual cortex have been inaccessible to studies using brain slices. In this paper we describe a new slice preparation in which a curved cutting blade…

We have analyzed reticulocyte and leukocyte mRNAs isolated from a patient with congenital methemoglobinemia and pseudohermaphrodism. The cytochrome b5 cDNA sequences were amplified using specific oligonucleotide primers and the polymerase chain…

Medical waste appears, on the surface, to be dangerous. Public perception of medical waste is, in general, inaccurate. After syringes washed up on the beaches of New York and New Jersey in the summers of 1987 and 1988, and fanned by the…

This study was designed to determine the influence of the hypothalamus on the content of vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) in the anterior pituitary. Disruption of the hypothalamic-pituitary connection was performed by ablating the arcuate-median…

BACKGROUND: Conventional wisdom holds that the elderly living in rural areas suffer poor health and have limited access to health care compared with their urban peers. The relation between poor health and limited access, however, has yet to be…

N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors are important in many instances of synaptic plasticity. In hippocampal area CA1, long-term potentiation (LTP) can be induced by both NMDA receptor-dependent and -independent mechanisms. Using intracellular…

A high index of suspicion is required for early detection of complications, most commonly diverticular abscess and colovesical fistula. Appropriate antibiotic therapy should cover a wide range of potential pathogens.

Factors associated with a single bout of dynamic exercise (increased circulating catecholamines, increased body temperature, and decreased pH) are known to attenuate the vascular response to alpha-adrenergic receptor activation. Therefore, we…

A 30-year-old, white woman, gravida 4, para 2, abortus 1, was hospitalized at 21 weeks' gestation because of a symptomatic pericardial effusion. Extensive evaluation including pericardial biopsy failed to reveal a specific cause. Treatment with…

The effects of adenosine on inhibitory synaptic transmission in area CA1 were examined using the rat hippocampal slice preparation and intracellular recording. Adenosine did not change fast inhibitory synaptic potentials (IPSPs) but depressed late…

This study was designed to ascertain whether individuals with mood disorders are particularly vulnerable to adverse effects of aspartame. Although the protocol required the recruitment of 40 patients with unipolar depression and a similar number of…
