OBJECTIVE Our prespecified dose-response analyses of A Very Early Rehabilitation Trial (AVERT) aim to provide practical guidance for clinicians on the timing, frequency, and amount of mobilization following acute stroke. METHODS Eligible patients were aged ≥18 years, had confirmed first (or recurrent) stroke, and were admitted to a stroke unit within 24(More)
The bradycardia evoked by electrical stimulation of the peripheral cut end of the rabbit vagus nerve is mediated by both myelinated and non-myelinated fibres. The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of non-myelinated fibres on heart rate in the rabbit using selective electrical stimulation techniques. In 8 rabbits selective activation of(More)
Previous studies from this laboratory have established that electrical stimulation of non-myelinated axons in the rabbit vagus nerve produces a bradycardia which is unaffected by the nicotinic ganglion blocker hexamethonium. The present study was undertaken to determine whether this effect is mediated by afferent or efferent axons. A unilateral supranodose(More)
