The article suggests that ophthalmologists should avoid saying "nothing more can be done" to their patients. Topics covered include referral of patients to specialists, willingness of ophthalmologists to engage colleagues in determining the…

Adult day centers (ADCs) are nonresidential settings that support the health and social needs of vulnerable older adults. Due to ADCs' congregate nature and participants' compromised health status, many ADCs have been forced to close during the…

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…

Although STEM is at the forefront of many educational initiatives, little is known about various professionals' perceptions of STEM. This mixed‐methods study surveyed 164 preservice teachers, inservice teachers, administrators, informal educators,…

Medical schools have been slow to include meaningful end-of-life (EOL) educational experiences in their curricula. As an area of inquiry and focused clinical experience, death is "conspicuous" by its absence, reflecting a medical culture that defines…

OBJECTIVES: This study was conducted to test several hypotheses: 1. That rheumatoid arthritis and syphilis were New World diseases, only transmitted to the Old World subsequent to the passages of Christopher Columbus; 2. To indirectly test the…

Background Cancer diagnoses pose challenges to adolescents' and young adults' (AYA) physical, mental, and emotional health, and developmental tasks. In order for AYAs, caregivers, clinicians, and other collaborators to optimize health outcomes…

Stories, film, drama, and art have been used in medical education to enhance empathy, perspective-taking, and openness to "otherness," and to stimulate reflection on self, others, and the world. Yet another, equally important function of the…

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…

Introduction: Laparoscopic inguinal herniorrhaphy is widely accepted. Robotic-assisted surgery provides improved 3-dimensional visualization and enhanced dexterity. The purpose of this case series was to demonstrate the feasibility of a modified,…

Although much is known about broad societal attitudes toward poverty, less is known about how women perceive their own poverty. We sought to examine the types of self attributions low-income women make about their poverty, as well as the association…

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…

B Learning Objectives: b There is scant data comparing Prothrombin Complex Concentrate (PCC) to Vitamin K/Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) in trauma patients. Patients that received PCC (PCC group) were compared to those who received Vitamin K/FFP (FFP…

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is not limited to middle-aged and elderly individuals; when premature CHD develops in the younger population, it has distinct characteristics in terms of lipid profile, risk factors, and clinical presentation. The…

The high affinity neuronal choline transporter (CHT1) is responsible for the uptake of choline into the pre-synaptic terminal of cholinergic neurons. Considering our past experience with modeling the blood-brain barrier choline transporter (BBBCHT)…

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.

Pentacycloundecylamine (PCU) derived compounds have been shown to be promising lead structures for the development of novel drug candidates aimed at a variety of neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases. Here we show for the first time a 3D…
