An Intervention for Sensory Difficulties in Children with Autism: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
The study shows high rigor in its measurement of treatment fidelity and use of a manualized protocol, and provides support for the use of this intervention for children with autism. Expand
Association of hypertension and sleep-disordered breathing.
TLDR
Sleep-disordered breathing, even snoring, was independently associated with hypertension in both men and women, and this relationship was strongest in young subjects, especially those of normal weight, a finding that is consistent with previous findings that SDB is more severe in young individuals. Expand
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and postoperative complications: clinical use of the STOP-BANG questionnaire.
TLDR
The STOP-BANG questionnaire is useful for preoperative identification of patients at higher than normal risk for surgical complications, probably because it identifies patients with occult OSAS. Expand
Association between time of admission to the ICU and mortality: a systematic review and metaanalysis.
TLDR
Whereas patients admitted to an ICU over the weekend appear to be at an increased risk of death, nighttime admissions were not associated with an increased mortality, and the lower level of staffing and intensity of care provided by many hospitals over the weekends may account for this finding. Expand
Low vision depression prevention trial in age-related macular degeneration: a randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
An integrated mental health and low vision intervention halved the incidence of depressive disorders relative to standard outpatient LVR in patients with AMD and promoted interactions between ophthalmology, optometry, rehabilitation, psychiatry, and behavioral psychology to prevent depression. Expand
A progressive postresection walking program significantly improves fatigue and health-related quality of life in pancreas and periampullary cancer patients.
TLDR
This is the first prospective, randomized controlled trial to report that participation in a home walking program confers a significant benefit in resected PPC patients with regard to fatigue levels, physical functioning, and health-related quality of life. Expand
Preventing depression in age-related macular degeneration.
TLDR
Problem-solving treatment prevented depressive disorders and loss of valued activities in patients with age-related macular degeneration as a short-term treatment, but these benefits were not maintained over time. Expand
Psychosocial benefits of a novel mindfulness intervention versus standard support in distressed women with breast cancer
TLDR
Assessment of the effects of a novel mindfulness intervention called mindfulness‐based art therapy (MBAT) versus standard educational support, on indices of stress and quality of life in breast cancer patients with high stress levels. Expand
The HYSLAR Trial: A Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial of the Use of a Restrictive Fluid Regimen With 3% Hypertonic Saline Versus Lactated Ringers in Patients Undergoing Pancreaticoduodenectomy
TLDR
A moderately restrictive fluid regimen with three percent hypertonic saline resulted in a statistically significant 25% reduction in complications when adjusted for age, weight, and pancreatic texture. Expand
Autonomic Dysregulation During Sensory Stimulation in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
Findings suggest that participants with ASD demonstrated a different pattern of parasympathetic activity during sensory stimulation, and the utility of ANS activity as an outcomes marker is suggested. Expand
