A personal prospective study was made of some perinatal and postnatal problems associated with induction of labour by three different methods in primiparous women with unripe cervices. The methods of induction were: (A) amniotomy followed by intravenous oxytocin [49], (B) amniotomy followed by intravenous prostaglandin E2 [39], (C) prostaglandin E2 by the(More)
In this study we created a virtual 3D world for learning to manage medical emergencies and evaluated it with 24 high school students in the USA and Sweden. We found that students in both groups felt immersed and found the online simulation easy to use. Scores for flow and self-assessed flow were significantly higher for the RHS group as compared to the HG(More)
209 first-born infants and their mothers were studied at birth and again two months later in order to learn how they had adapted to post-natal life. Only a small minority had escaped ill-health and also achieved the ideal of a contented breast-fed baby with an established routine. At two months 33-5 per cent were still breast feeding. Difficulties with(More)
We describe the architecture of a virtual patient model, the Virtual ED Patient, for scenarios in emergency medicine. The model is rule-based, and uses four vital signs as a representation of its state. The model is used in a multi-person learning environment based on online gaming technology. The efficacy of the model and the Virtual ED learning(More)
We report on a study that investigates the relationship between repeated training of teams managing medical emergencies in the Virtual World and affective learning outcomes in a group of 12 medical students. The focus of the training was on individual actions, but also on interaction and behaviour in the team. Current CPR training seems to lack important(More)
Children often acquire health and disease information from their parents; and, as a rule, parents of a higher socioeconomic status are often better educated than those of lower socioeconomic status. This study assessed children's knowledge of upper respiratory tract infection and correlated the level of knowledge with socioeconomic status, ethnic background(More)
Fourteen patients with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer were treated with oral verapamil 240 to 480 mg daily for 3 days and intravenous mitoxantrone 12 to 14 mg/m2 on the second days of verapamil administration. Courses were repeated at 21 day intervals to a maximum of 4 courses. Most patients had cancers refractory to prior cisplatin or carboplatin, or(More)
