This review presents evidence of the undertreatment of pain for people with cognitive impairment and explores reasons for this, emphasizing inadequate detection due to lack of suitable pain assessment protocols. Implications for practice and suggestions for further research are made.
This study was conducted to examine the hypothesis that P2 purinoceptors contribute to pressure-induced autoregulatory adjustments of afferent arteriolar caliber. Experiments were performed in vitro using the blood-perfused juxtamedullary nephron technique. Afferent arteriolar diameter averaged 19.2 +/- 0.6 microns (n = 51) at control perfusion pressure of… (More)
A photonic crystal nanocavity with a Quality (Q) factor of 1.4 × 10 6 , a mode volume of 0.78(λ /n) 3 , and an operating wavelength of 637 nm is designed in a silicon nitride (SiN x) ridge waveguide with refractive index of 2.0. The effect on the cavity Q factor and mode volume of single diamond nanocrystals of various sizes and locations embedded in the… (More)
