We prospectively studied early bedside standard EEG characteristics in 61 acute postanoxic coma patients. Five simple EEG features, namely, isoelectric, discontinuous, nonreactive to intense auditory and nociceptive stimuli, dominant delta frequency, and occurrence of paroxysms were classified yes or no. Sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether activation of the frequency of use and automatic learning parameters of word prediction software has an impact on text input speed. METHODS Forty-five participants with cervical spinal cord injury between C4 and C8 Asia A or B accepted to participate to this study. Participants were separated in two groups: a high lesion group(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether the number of words displayed in the word prediction software (WPS) list affects text input speed (TIS) in people with cervical spinal cord injury (SCI), and whether any influence is dependent on the level of the lesion. DESIGN A cross-sectional trial. SETTING A rehabilitation center. PARTICIPANTS Persons with cervical(More)
BACKGROUND Respiratory involvement in neuromuscular disorders may contribute to impaired breathing-swallowing interactions, swallowing disorders and malnutrition. We investigated whether the use of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) controlled by the patient could improve swallowing performances in a population of neuromuscular patients requiring daytime NIV.(More)
This study evaluated compliance with non-invasive ventilation in patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1 and identified predictors of cessation at 5 years in a cohort of patients followed in a specialist center for Neuromuscular Diseases in France. Mechanical ventilation in these patients poses a very strong challenge to caregivers. Factors predicting(More)
Understanding locomotor behavior is important to guide rehabilitation after stroke. This study compared lower-limb kinematics during the walking and turning sub-tasks of the Timed Up and Go (TUG) test in stroke patients and healthy subjects. We also determined the parameters which explain TUG sub-task performance time in healthy subjects. Biomechanical(More)
BACKGROUND Scoliosis is the most debilitating issue in SMA type 2 patients. No evidence confirms the efficacy of Garches braces (GB) to delay definitive spinal fusion. OBJECTIVE Compare orthopedic and pulmonary outcomes in children with SMA type 2 function to management. METHOD We carried out a monocentric retrospective study on 29 SMA type 2 children(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY To explore the effects of caffeine and bright light therapy on simulated nighttime driving in sleep-deprived healthy volunteers. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS Twelve male healthy volunteers aged 20 to 50 years participated in a randomized cross-over study of simulated nighttime driving at a sleep laboratory, followed by recovery sleep with(More)
