The purpose of this study was to describe the physiological and aerodynamic characteristics and the preparation for a successful attempt to break the 1-h cycling world record. An elite professional road cyclist (30 yr, 188 cm, 81 kg) performed an incremental laboratory test to assess maximal power output (W(max)) and power output (W(OBLA)), estimated speed(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate exercise intensity and load during mass-start stages in professional road cycling, using competition heart rate (HR) recordings. METHODS Seventeen world-class cyclists performed an incremental laboratory test during which maximal power output (Wmax), maximal HR (HRmax), onset of blood lactate accumulation (OBLA), lactate threshold(More)
Background: Heated intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy achieves high peritoneal concentrations with limited systemic absorption and has become an important tool in the management of patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis from low-grade malignancies such as pseudomyxoma peritonei and in selected cases of high-grade tumors such as colon(More)
PURPOSE To estimate, upon competition heart rate (HR), exercise intensity during time trials (TT) in professional road cycling. METHODS Eighteen world-class cyclists completed an incremental laboratory cycling test to assess maximal power output (Wmax), maximal HR (HRmax), onset of blood lactate accumulation (OBLA), lactate threshold (LT), and a HR-power(More)
CONTEXT Although partner violence screening has been endorsed by many health organizations, there is insufficient evidence that it has beneficial health outcomes. OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of computerized screening for partner violence plus provision of a partner violence resource list vs provision of a partner violence list only on women's health(More)
The Chicago Area Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Network (CAPriCORN) represents an unprecedented collaboration across diverse healthcare institutions including private, county, and state hospitals and health systems, a consortium of Federally Qualified Health Centers, and two Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals. CAPriCORN builds on the strengths of(More)
The aim of this study was to establish the concordance for quality of life (QOL), disability, and use of health service indicators between two modes of computer-assisted interviews: audio-computer-assisted self-interview (A-CASI) and computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI). High concordance between these modes of data collection would allow comparisons(More)
