This paper broadly reviews the study of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), across the spectrum of neuroimaging modalities. Among the range of imaging methods, however, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is unique in its applicability to studying both structure and function. Thus we additionally performed meta-analyses of MRI results to examine 1) the issue(More)
Serodiagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in the United States has traditionally relied on a sequential two-test algorithm: an initial screen with an enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and reflex testing of EIA-reactive specimens with a more specific supplemental test such as Western blotting or immunofluorescence. The supplemental tests are(More)
S-nitrosation of protein thiol groups by nitric oxide (NO*) is a widely recognized protein modification. Only few intracellular S-nitrosated proteins have been identified and it has been reported that S-nitrosation/denitrosation can serve as a regulatory process in signal-transduction pathways. Given the potential physiological importance of(More)
Administrative data are critical to describing patterns of use, cost, and appropriateness of imaging in emergency care. These data encompass a range of source materials that have been collected primarily for a nonresearch use: documenting clinical care (e.g., medical records), administering care (e.g., picture archiving and communication systems), or(More)
Although great progress has been made in the understanding and treatment of acute leukemia, this disease has not been conquered. For emergency providers (EPs), the presentation of these patients to an emergency department presents a host of challenges. A patient may present with a new diagnosis of leukemia or with complications of the disease process or(More)
An implantable electro-osmotic valve for the controlled and continuous administration of medication is under development. The objective is to regulate the amount of drug to be released. The driving force behind this valve is a liquid with a vapour pressure above 1 bar (100 kPa) which presses the solution under question through the membrane. The rate of flow(More)
We report a case of traumatic arterial hemorrhage from the posterior urethral artery, refractory to traditional hemostatic technique, and successfully managed with intraurethral thrombin hemostatic matrix (FloSeal [Baxter Healthcare Corporation, Deerfield, Illinois, US]). We believe that this demonstrates a safe, effective therapy for urethral hemorrhage(More)
BACKGROUND Abscess is a distinct skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI) requiring incision and drainage (I&D). Previous national surveys combined all SSTIs to estimate abscess and evaluate management. We hypothesized that antibiotic rates are declining in response to evidence that antibiotics are unnecessary for most SSTIs requiring I&D. METHODS Emergency(More)
