Although immunohistochemistry has helped to classify the histology of frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD), there have been many cases, described in the literature as showing “dementia lacking distinctive histology” (DLDH), in which this technique has failed to disclose signature pathological changes. Using an automated procedure we have repeated(More)
We have investigated the pathological correlates of dementia in the brains from a consecutive series of 70 patients dying with a clinical diagnosis of frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). Clinical misdiagnosis rate was low with only 3 patients (4%) failing to show pathological changes consistent with this diagnosis; 1 patient had Alzheimer’s disease(More)
Estimating the changes in the variance of wages features in two intensively researched areas of economics, one examining changes in residual inequality, the other investigating the link between college attendance and wage uncertainty. Both literatures typically neglect the effects of endogenous schooling choices and unobserved heterogeneity on observed(More)
Artifacts are common in patients who require ECG monitoring. Artifacts can simulate arrhythmias such as atrial flutter and ventricular tachycardia and lead to inappropriate treatment. Electrode and lead misplacements are another common pitfall and can lead to ECG changes that may be interpreted as ischemic in origin and can mimic serious arrhythmias. A(More)
CRITICALCARENURSE Vol 29, No. 1, FEBRUARY 2009 67 Electrode misplacement is another common artifact. Such misplacement may lead to changes in ECG morphology that could potentially be interpreted as ischemic in origin. Electrode misplacements can also mimic serious arrhythmias and lead to misdirected therapeutic decisions. Electrode misplacement Adrian(More)
BACKGROUND There is increasing interest in how culture may affect the quality of healthcare services, and previous research has shown that 'treatment culture'-of which there are three categories (resident centred, ambiguous and traditional)-in a nursing home may influence prescribing of psychoactive medications. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was(More)
