BACKGROUND Studies have shown the detrimental effect of increased temperature on brain injury. Fever is common after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). The term 'central fever' is often used when no cause is identified. AIM The aim of the study was to determine the correlation of fever with third ventricular shift in 61 patients with ICH and hypothesize(More)
Data contained in the electronic health record (EHR) present a tremendous opportunity to improve quality-of-care and enhance research capabilities. However, the EHR is not structured to provide data for such purposes: most clinical information is entered as free text and content varies substantially between providers. Discrete information on patients'(More)
Excessive sleepiness occurs frequently in the general population and is a common feature of many psychiatric conditions. The reductions in quality of life associated with excessive sleepiness may be substantial, involving compromised cognitive performance and work productivity as well as possible harm to the individual and the public. Excessive sleepiness(More)
PURPOSE To describe the spin-echo and dynamic gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging appearance of the uterus in women receiving tamoxifen. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-five postmenopausal women with breast carcinoma receiving tamoxifen therapy underwent pelvic MR imaging. T1-weighted, T2-weighted, and dynamic gradient-echo T1-weighted(More)
Bariatric surgery has serious associated medical comorbidity and procedure-related risks and is, thus, considered an intermediate-to-high-risk non-cardiac surgery. Altered respiratory mechanics, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and less often, pulmonary hypertension and postoperative pulmonary embolism are the major contributors to poor pulmonary outcomes in(More)
Bariatric surgery has serious associated medical comorbidity and procedure-related risks and is thus considered an intermediate- to high-risk noncardiac surgery. Most patients referred for bariatric surgery have a low or very low functional capacity, making cardiac risk assessment imperative. Stress echocardiography has a high negative predictive value and(More)
Sleep medicine is a multidisciplinary specialty that is rapidly advancing with exciting new discoveries. Some sleep disorders are diagnosed by clinical history alone, but others such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy, periodic limb movement disorder, parasomnias, and nocturnal seizures (conditions that will be addressed by other articles in this issue) usually(More)
In recent years, sleep medicine has become a rapidly advancing field filled with exciting new discoveries. Many sleep disorders are diagnosed by clinical history alone. Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy, periodic limb movement disorder, parasomnias, and nocturnal seizures usually require evaluation in the sleep laboratory. Sleep studies are(More)
