OBJECTIVE Patients who have to wait in the hospital for coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) are exposed to the potential risks of immobilization. This clinical trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of an in-hospital cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program performed before and after CABG on postoperative outcomes. DESIGN Fifty-six patients who had(More)
BACKGROUND Migraine is a highly prevalent chronic neurologic disorder. Frequent headache attacks require prophylactic treatment, and side effects are limiting prescribing factors among traditional agents for migraine prophylaxis. Beta-blockers, antidepressants, calcium channel blockers, and anticonvulsants have been used since the 1960s, and their efficacy(More)
The general objective of this study was to learn about the pedagogical practices that are already in use in nursing teaching in order to identify and analyze those that have brought changes and innovation. This field study used a qualitative and comparative approach, and the subjects were nursing professors and students. The data was collected through(More)
Extending a given language with new dedicated features is a general and quite used approach to make the programming language more adapted to problems. Being closer to the application, this leads to less programming flaws and easier maintenance. But of course one would still like to perform program analysis on these kinds of extended languages, in particular(More)
Programmers are often interested in a way to write error-free programs, i.e. to avoid undesired behaviors. In this context, a type system was conceived as the formal method for specification and proof of programs written in the Tom rewriting language. The Tom programming language is an extension of Java that adds pattern matching, more particularly(More)
Frequent migraine attacks require prophylactic treatment. Anticonvulsants have been suggested due to the progressive knowledge that cortical hyperexcitability is involved in migraine pathophysiology. Topiramate is one of these drugs and its efficacy has been demonstrated in several studies. The aim of this study is to evaluate the adherence and response to(More)
The effect of locust bean gum, a galactomannan, with different molecular weights on the microstructure and viscoelastic properties of heat-induced whey protein gels has been studied using confocal laser scanning microscopy and small-deformation rheology. The results obtained clearly showed that differences in the molecular weight of the polysaccharide have(More)
