The findings of Shepard, Hovland, and Jenkins (1961) on the relative ease of learning 6 elemental types of 2-way classifications have been deeply influential 2 times over: 1st, as a rebuke to pure stimulus generalization accounts, and again as the leading benchmark for evaluating formal models of human category learning. The litmus test for models is the(More)
For most of the industrialized world, the morbidity and mortality attributed to cardiovascular disease have declined in recent decades as a result of improvements in technology and a greater emphasis on primary and secondary preventative strategies.1 Unfortunately, this dramatic improvement in disease burden has not been witnessed in lowand middle-income(More)
BACKGROUND A large disparity in medical health care is clearly evident between developed and underserved nations in the field of cardiac electrophysiology, specifically pacemaker implantation. This study aimed to assess the safety of pacemaker reuse. METHODS AND RESULTS A computerized search from January 1, 1970, to September 1, 2010, identified 18(More)
Significant healthcare disparities exist between the developed world and low and middle income countries (LMIC), specifically in the field of cardiac electrophysiology. As a result, pacemaker reutilization has been proposed as a viable option for those in LMIC and no other means of obtaining a device. Little data exist regarding the feasibility of(More)
The goal of this paper is to present a verification and validation study of HiFiLES: a high-order LES solver developed in the Aerospace Computing Laboratory (ACL) at Stanford University. HiFiLES has been built on top of SD++ (Castonguay et al.) and achieves high-order spatial discretizations with the Energy-Stable Flux Reconstruction (ESFR) scheme on(More)
INTRODUCTION Prior studies have suggested that pacemaker reuse may be a reasonable alternative to provide device therapy in the low- and middle-income countries. We studied explant indications and remaining battery life of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) at a tertiary medical center. METHODS AND RESULTS We conducted a retrospective review(More)
As disparities in healthcare between the industrialized world and low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) continue to widen, novel methods of delivering cardiovascular therapies-specifically electrophysiological devices-must be explored. Post-mortem pacemaker donation is a safe and effective method of decreasing the morbidity associated with cardiovascular(More)
