Two experiments using male and female college students studied the effects on free recall of transforming auditory and visual stimuli by imagination or penciling. Experiment 1 (N = 152) presented nouns either auditorily by a tape recorder or visually as printed words, and Ss either drew them as pictures or printed them as words. Significantly more items(More)
BACKGROUND Triage is implemented in healthcare settings to optimise access to appropriate care and manage waiting times. OBJECTIVES To determine the optimum features of triage systems for patients with musculoskeletal conditions. DATA SOURCES AMED, BNI, CINAHL, EMBASE, Health Business Elite, HMIC, MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, Web of Science and Google(More)
Commonwealth Fund Pub. #557 Over the past decade, there has been growing evidence of race-based disparities in access to health care services and the quality of care patients receive. Many studies show that even among insured individuals with the same type of health coverage, differences among racial and ethnic groups exist—with minorities generally faring(More)
BACKGROUND Musculoskeletal condition assessment and management is increasingly delivered at the primary to secondary care interface, by inter-disciplinary triage and treat services. OBJECTIVES This review aimed to describe Intermediate Care pathways, evaluate effectiveness, describe outcomes and identify gaps in the evidence. DATA SOURCES PubMed, ISI(More)
AIMS Accurate serum aldosterone determination is critical to the screening and diagnosis of primary aldosteronism, the localisation of aldosterone producing tumours, and the investigation of other disorders of the renin-angiotensin system. Mass spectrometry offers a means to overcome problems with method-dependent bias between competitive immunoassays for(More)
The effects on free recall and recognition of transforming visually presented words and pictures was investigated. The Ss (n = 88) were asked to imagine or trace the words or pictures, and the number of item remembered was measured through free recall or recognition. There was no significant difference in items remembered as a result of tracing or(More)
Fasted (48 h) rats were killed at 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24 h after they were refed on a high-carbohydrate diet. An increase in the maximal activity and quantity of cystolic acetyl-CoA carboxylase was found in liver of refed rats after a lag time of about 8 h. The increased quantity of cytosolic enzyme was attributable primarily to mobilization of(More)
Despite increasing use of left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) as a surgical treatment for advanced heart failure in an era of improved outcomes with LVAD support, the mechanical interactions between these pumps and the cardiovascular system are not completely understood. We utilized an in vitro mock circulatory loop to analyze the heat production(More)
The 3C protease encoded by human rhinovirus type 2 catalyzes with equal efficiency cleavage of a peptide substrate with or without a fluorescein label attached to the amino acid at the P7' position. Substrates Ac-MEALFQGPLQYKDL-NH2 and MEALFQGPLQYKE(fluorescein)L are hydrolyzed with values of Vmax/KM of 970 M-1 s-1 and 1100 M-1 s-1, respectively. With the(More)
