Therapists continuously strive for efficiency in clinical practice. Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) is a tool that can provide both a structure for objective documentation of patient progress and a means of program evaluation. This article describes the application of GAS in a comprehensive outpatient brain injury rehabilitation program. The benefits of GAS(More)
Three groups of eight dogs each were studied to evaluate the early evolution of the hyperamylasemia, hyperlipasemia, and acinar cell pathology at the light and electron microscopic levels during acute Diazinon-induced pancreatitis. Two more groups of five dogs each were evaluated for the effects of cholinergic receptor blockade with atropine and ductal(More)
Total activity of creatine kinase (CK), lactate dehydrogenase (LD), aldolase (Ald), glutamico-oxaloacetic transaminase (GOT), and LD-isoenzyme distribution was studied in serum and muscle biopsies from normal persons and 117 patients with different types of muscular dystrophy: 82 Duchenne type (DMD), 12 BEcker type, 7 facioscapulohumeral (FSHMD), and 16(More)
The total lactic dehydrogenase (LD) activity and the isoenzyme pattern were studied in muscles of mice during the progressive growth of a distally transplanted methylcholanthrene-induced tumor. The thigh muscles as a group (a mixture of fibers with different oxidative-glycolytic metabolic potentials), the gastrocnemius muscle (primarily glycolytic), the(More)
Clinical pancreas transplantation is logistically difficult because of uncertainty concerning how long pancreas grafts can be preserved. We studied the viability of canine segmental (tail) pancreatic autografts transplanted after 24 to 72 hours of hypothermic preservation in either modified Collins' solution or modified silica gel filtered dog plasma (SGF).(More)
