Background We investigated whether the effect of air pollution on daily mortality is enhanced by high temperatures in Wuhan, China, using data from 2001 to 2004. Wuhan has been called an “oven” city… Expand
Pennsylvania State Hospital system's seclusion and restraint reduction program.
OBJECTIVES This study examined the use of seclusion and mechanical restraint from 1990 to 2000 and the rate of staff injuries from patient assaults from 1998 to 2000 in a state hospital system. … Expand
Association of higher levels of ambient criteria pollutants with impaired cardiac autonomic control: a population-based study.
An association between air pollution and increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality has been reported, but underlying mechanisms are unknown. The authors examined short-term associations… Expand

IL-6 and TNF alpha secretion is increased by sleep loss or restriction. IL-6 secretion progressively increases with age, yet its association with decreased quality and quantity of sleep in old adults… Expand
Association of daily cause-specific mortality with ambient particle air pollution in Wuhan, China.
In Asia, limited literature has been published on the association between daily mortality and ambient air pollution. We examined the associations of daily cause-specific mortality with daily mean… Expand

BACKGROUND Apnea, depression, and metabolic abnormalities are independent predictors of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in patients with sleep apnea. Exercise is beneficial for apnea, depression,… Expand
Femoral bone structural geometry adapts to mechanical loading and is influenced by sex steroids: the Penn State Young Women's Health Study.
We used 10 years of longitudinal data from Penn State Young Women's Health Study to explore predictors of adult bone structural geometry and strength. One hundred twelve participants were enrolled in… Expand
