The purpose of this randomized controlled trial was to investigate the influences of music during kangaroo care (KC) on maternal anxiety and preterm infants' responses. There are no experimental studies that explore the influences of combination of music and KC on psychophysiological responses in mother-infant dyads. Purposive sampling was used to recruit(More)
It is becoming increasingly important to manage databases as a repository resource and to allow application programs to access this resource in a heterogeneous distributed environment. Data requested by a query are sometimes available in multiple sites such that the query becomes executable in different ways. Under this circumstance, choosing the best(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of lento music on examination anxiety among nursing students. A randomized crossover classroom-based trial was conducted. Thirty-eight students with a mean age of 19.4 years (SD = .54) were randomly assigned to either a music/silence or a silence/music group sequence. The students in the music group were(More)
Using a heterogeneous platform has became a common approach to improve performance. This trend leads to critical problems of synchronization and superfluous memory copy construct, thus a memory model can be built to overcome this performance bottleneck via data exchange. Consequently, keeping the benefits of service consolidation while not losing(More)
The immune system of newborn is generally depressed by impaired production of Th1-cell associated cytokines, which results in increased susceptibility to intracellular pathogens and poor response to vaccinations. For avoiding abortion, the maternal and fetal immune systems tend to Th2-cell polarizing cytokines. Besides, IL-12p35 is a determining factor of(More)
Developing a parallel program on Chip multi-processors (CMPs) is a critical and difficult issue. To overcome the synchronization obstacles of CMPs, transactional memory (TM) has been proposed as an alternative control concurrency mechanism, instead of using traditional lock synchronization. Unfortunately, TM has led to seven performance pathologies:(More)
