After electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), many patients experience a decrement in their mnestic capacity. We studied episodic memory in eight severely depressed patients treated with a course of right-unilateral ECT. For this purpose, a testing instrument was constructed by the authors. It was made of paper cards that held four pieces of information, namely a(More)

METHODS In 16 depressed patients treated with right unilateral ECT, pretreatment absolute band powers and interhemispheric coherences were(More)
To determine whether patient and hospital characteristics were significantly associated with variations in Pneumocystis carinii (PCP) care and outcomes, we analyzed the use of diagnostic tests, intensive care units (ICUs), anti-PCP medications for persons hospitalized with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-related PCP, and hospital discharge status. We(More)
Hospitals are a major provider of medical care for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected persons. Although utilization and patterns of care profiles in public and private hospitals have been evaluated for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-related Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP), one of the most costly and common severe complications of(More)
