The objective of this study was to compare between the quantitative and qualitative aspects of a clock drawing test in elderly schizophrenic and Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. Three independent raters performed a retrospective analysis of the clock drawing item from the Cambridge Cognitive Examination (CAMCOG), in long-term open wards of a public(More)
The present study, using a decision analysis, evaluates whether an exercise tolerance test (ETT) is indicated before initiating regular physical activity to reduce the risk of sudden death during exercise training. The study encompasses a decision tree, Monte Carlo simulation, and utility analysis for adults at low to high risk for coronary disease, with a(More)

Out of eight pregnancies, four fetuses(More)
Microalbuminuria (MA) is a known marker for endothelial dysfunction and future cardiovascular events. Exercise-induced albuminuria (EiA) may precede the appearance of MA. Associations between EiA and metabolic syndrome (MS) have not been assessed so far. Our aim was to investigate this association in a large sample of apparently healthy individuals with no(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the agreement among spouses and children in their describing the current and past personality of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and to determine the relations between their descriptions and selected demographic and clinical variables. The subjects were 22 dementia out-patients who fulfilled the(More)
OBJECTIVE Clock drawing has been studies in Alzheimer's disease but not in elderly schizophrenics. We examined clock drawing ability in elderly schizophrenia patients and sought possible correlations with demographic, clinical and cognitive variables. DESIGN Retrospective analysis of the clock drawing item from the Cambridge Cognitive Examination (CAMCOG)(More)
