An evaluation was conducted to compare the impact of an 8-week cardiovascular disease risk reduction group teaching program for 92 individuals with mental retardation (MR; IQ less than 70) and 97 normal learners. The curriculum emphasized exercise, nutritional choices, and stress reduction. Body Mass Index (BMI; weight in kilograms, divided by height in(More)
The aim of this paper is to describe a novel approach to the analysis of data obtained from card-sorting experiments. These experiments were performed as a part of the initial phase of a project, called NEONATE. One of the aims of the project is to develop decision support tools for the neonatal intensive care environment. Physical card-sorts were performed(More)
Background.Common concepts and definitions are important for the effective practice of medicine. In an intensive care unit clear understanding of terminology and communication between different staff groups may be critical for optimal care. If computerised decision support tools are to be successfully deployed in these high intensity environments, all staff(More)
The aim of the NEONATE project is to investigate sub-optimal decision making in the neonatal intensive care unit and to implement decision support tools which will draw the attention of nursing and clinical staff to situations where specific actions should be taken or avoided. We have collected over 400 patient-hours of data on 31 separate babies, including(More)

The current study focuses on characterizing the rheological characteristics of different petrolatum grades using a controlled stress rheometer. Both steady-state flow and dynamic oscillatory tests were conducted on the petrolatums. The thermorheological scans were found to be the most informative and reproducible for this study. Significant differences in(More)
The purpose of this research was to demonstrate the utility of Raman spectroscopy for process analysis of a suspension metered dose inhaler manufacturing process. Chemometric models were constructed for the quantification of ethanol and active pharmaceutical ingredient such that both could be monitored in real-time during the compounding and filling(More)
Geolocation of a feature in a video sequence collected from a moving platform is an activity that must be undertaken in video exploitation, especially surveillance and reconnaissance applications. Examples of sensor systems that are the focus of this work include manned and unmanned aerial vehicles. The approach described here uses positional information(More)
The aim of this paper is to describe a novel approach to the analysis of data obtained from concept-sorting experiments. These experiments were performed as part of a project, called NEONATE, one of whose aims is to develop decision support tools for the neonatal intensive care environment. Physical card-sorts were performed using clinical " action " and(More)
Demonstration of content uniformity (CU) is critical toward the successful development of dry powder inhalers (DPIs). Methods for unit dose CU determination for DPI products are well-established within the field of respiratory science. Recent advances in the area include a uHPLC-MS method for high-throughput uniformity analysis, which allows for a greater(More)
