In a case-control study based on 859 consecutive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) cases identified through a tumor registry between 1990 and 1998, the authors collected demographic, occupational, exposure, and education information. Exposures were identified through self-report, reported occupational history, and the use of a job-exposure matrix. Conditional(More)
Exposure to an aversive and stressful event is reported to have similar effects on hippocampal plasticity and behavior as does exposure to high-frequency stimulation of the hippocampus. Here we directly compared the effects of exposure to a stressor vs. a previous induction of LTP on a subsequent induction of LTP and the extracellular response to a tetanus(More)
OBJECTIVE: The reporting of relative risk reductions (RRRs) or absolute risk reductions (ARRs) to quantify binary outcomes in trials engenders differing perceptions of therapeutic efficacy, and the merits of P values versus confidence intervals (CIs) are also controversial. We describe the manner in which numerical and statistical difference in treatment(More)
Sigma (sigma) ligands have been shown to modulate NMDA receptor activity. In the present study we used the olfactory bulbectomy (OBX) animal model of depression to assess the effects of the sigma1 ligand igmesine on OBX-induced behaviour. Behavioural experiments demonstrated OBX (saline-treated) rats to have increased dizocilpine-induced behavioural(More)
In the assessment of chest pain patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in the emergency department (ED), physicians rely on global diagnostic impressions ('gestalt'). The aim of this study was to determine the diagnostic value of the ED physician's overall assessment of ACS likelihood, and the values of the main diagnostic modalities(More)
Early recognition and management of shock decreases morbidity and mortality. The recognition of chock and identification of its causes is based on an integration of the clinical context, physical findings, history and bedside tests. Ultrasound plays an important role in elucidating the cause of chock in the emergency department (ED). This article presents a(More)
AIM/BACKGROUND The purpose of the Swedish specialist examination in Emergency Medicine is not only to determine whether residents have attained the level of competence of specialists, but also to guide and facilitate residency training. METHODS The Swedish Society for Emergency Medicine has developed checklists that delineate criteria of consideration and(More)
