Evaluated a low cost and practical intervention designed to decrease children's, parents', and nurses' distress during children's immunizations. The intervention consisted of children viewing a popular cartoon movie and being coached by nurses and parents to attend to the movie. Ninety-two children, 4-6 years of age, and their parents were alternatively(More)
Chronic pain, most often due to haemophilic arthropathy, is a pervasive problem in persons with haemophilia (PWH) that adversely impacts function and quality of life. PWH with inhibitors and older PWH may be especially vulnerable to progressive arthropathy and resulting chronic pain. The development of chronic pain from acute pain involves a complex(More)
To understand better reported sex differences in sensitivity to pain, this study examined daily pain frequency and intensity, use of analgesics, physical activity, and both subjective and physiological response to acute pain in 18 men and 24 women, healthy people who provided information about their daily pain symptoms and physical activity before(More)
To understand better the role of pain history in current response to pain episodes, this research examined pain-related indices from the patient's family of origin and their relationships to the patient's coping with acute pain. Participants were 42 healthy men and women who provided information about their own and their family's pain history and then were(More)
In this paper we present two optimized eight-step symmetric implicit methods with phase-lag order ten and infinite (phase-fitted). The methods are constructed to solve numerically the radial time-independent Schrödinger equation with the use of the Woods-Saxon potential. They can also be used to integrate related IVPs with oscillating solutions such as(More)
In this work a new optimized symmetric eight-step embedded predictor-corrector method (EPCM) with minimal phase-lag and algebraic order ten is presented. The method is based on the symmetric multistep method of Quinlan-Tremaine [1], with eight steps and eighth algebraic order and is constructed to solve numerically IVPs with oscillatory solutions. We(More)
objective of the project was to study, evaluate and propose an appropriate standard for the exchange of geographic data. The primary application interest was in the Hellenic Cadastre Project. The proposed standard however is suitable to serve as a national standard for geographic data exchange (NSGDE). As a result of the study, three primary trends in(More)
