Computerized working memory and executive function training programs designed to target specific impairments in executive functioning are becoming increasingly available, yet how well these programs generalize to improve functional deficits in disorders, such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), beyond the training context is not(More)
Intensive treatment regimes that are known to have a potential risk of infertility sometimes have to be given to boys who have aggressive malignant disease. Long-term care must therefore include further discussion of these patients' impaired fertility. This study describes the results of a series of semi-structured interviews with 15 young male cancer(More)
Biodegradable polymer scaffolds can be used to deliver soluble factors to enhance osseous remodeling in bone defects. To this end, we designed a poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLAGA) microsphere scaffold to sustain the release of FTY720, a selective agonist for sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptors. The microsphere scaffolds were created from fast(More)
Discovery of the fuel additive methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) in groundwater, surface water, and stormwater has prompted studies of its sources, transport and fate. More limited data, however, is available on the extent of contamination of coastal waters, as well as the persistence of MTBE in the marine environment. We apply here the combination of solid(More)
Transfusion therapy in postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) traditionally has been modeled after precedents set in the Vietnam and Korean wars. However, data from recent military combat casualties suggest a different transfusion strategy. Transfusion of packed red blood cells, fresh frozen plasma, and platelets in a ratio of 1:1:1 improves dilutional coagulopathy(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop and validate models to predict emergency department (ED) presentations and hospital admissions for time and day of the year. METHODS Initial model development and validation was based on 5 years of historical data from two dissimilar hospitals, followed by subsequent validation on 27 hospitals representing 95% of the ED presentations(More)
AIMS There is evidence of a non-linear relationship between alcohol consumption and mental health status, and of an association between tobacco use and poor mental health. This paper examines the nature of the association between usual alcohol consumption, tobacco use and symptoms of anxiety and depression in Emergency Department patients in Queensland,(More)
– Third generation mobile communication networks are designed to provide a variety of high data rate services with higher Quality of Service (QoS) than second-generation systems. Handover becomes one of the major problems in such a mobile environment as it is of utmost importance to provide a higher guarantee that the users are able to continue their(More)
