Many diseases and injuries can impair joint mobility. Normal reference values are needed to determine extent of impairment to assess and monitor joint motion. There is very little published data describing normal joint range of motion (ROM) for healthy men and women across a wide span of ages. We enrolled male and female subjects aged between 2 and 69 years(More)
The relationship between body temperature and ethanol sensitivity was studied in male and female mice. Age-matched drug-naive mice of both sexes were injected with 3.6 g/kg ethanol (20% w/v) and placed into a chamber kept at one of 8 designated temperatures from 13 to 36 degrees C. In both sexes, wake-up rectal temperatures were significantly, positively(More)
BACKGROUND In Canada, there has been a disproportionate increase in adults with Class II (BMI 35.0-39.9 kg/m(2)) or Class III obesity (BMI ≥ 40 kg/m(2)) affecting 9 % of Canadians with increases projected. Individuals affected by severe obesity (BMI ≥ 35) are at increased risk of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, impaired(More)
The term evidence-based medicine was first coined by Sack-ett and colleagues 1 as " the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. " The key to practicing evidence-based medicine is applying the best current knowledge to decisions in individual patients. Medical knowledge is(More)
Background. The purpose of this study is to determine if colonoscopy quality is associated with the annual case volume of endoscopists. Methods. A retrospective cohort study was performed on 3235 patients who underwent colonoscopy in the city of St. John's, NL, between January and June 2012. Data collected included completion of colonoscopy (CCR) and(More)
The relationship between ambient temperature, body temperature, and brain sensitivity to ethanol was investigated in rats. Drug naive male Long Evans rats were injected IP with a hypnotic dose of ethanol (2.75 g/kg, 20% w/v). Immediately after injection, separate groups were exposed to one of five ambient temperatures from 12 to 34 degrees C. Ambient(More)
