BACKGROUND A growing number of studies indicate that low income, African American men and women living in urban environments are at high risk for trauma exposure, which may have intergenerational effects. The current study employed psychophysiological methods to describe biomarkers of anxiety in children of traumatized mothers. METHODS Study participants(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) induces intermittent hypoxia (IH) during sleep and is associated with elevated triglycerides (TG). We previously demonstrated that mice exposed to chronic IH develop elevated TG. We now hypothesize that a single exposure to acute hypoxia also increases TG due to the stimulation of free fatty acid (FFA) mobilization from white(More)
Patients who frequently miss or do not show for their scheduled psychotherapy appointments create administrative and clinical difficulties, and may not be receiving effective treatment. Prior research has predominately focused on either identifying demographic and administrative factors related to patient no-show rates or evaluating the effectiveness of(More)
Bayesian Decision Analysis (BDA) uses Bayesian statistics to integrate multiple types of exposure information and classify exposures within the exposure rating categorization scheme promoted in American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) publications. Prior distributions for BDA may be developed from existing monitoring data, mathematical models, or(More)
OBJECTIVE Trauma is associated with increased risk for anxiety disorders such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). To further understand biologic mechanisms of PTSD, we examined the dark-enhanced startle response, a psychophysiological correlate of anxiety, and heart rate variability (HRV) in traumatized individuals with and without PTSD. The(More)

The critically ill obstetric patient presents many unique management problems to the health care provider. Both the mother and her fetus can be profoundly affected by disease processes. One such challenging management problem in the obstetric population is the development of an underlying coagulopathy. Coagulopathies during pregnancy present diverse(More)
In a randomized investigator-blinded study, 506 children ages 6 months to 12 years with positive rapid direct antigen tests for Group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus (GABHS) received treatment with either clarithromycin suspension, 7.5 mg/kg twice daily, or penicillin VK suspension, 13.3 mg/kg three times per day for 10 days. Signs and symptoms of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether workplace exposures to recognized lymphohematopoietic carcinogens were possibly related to cancers in six semiconductor-manufacturing workers. METHODS A job-exposure matrix was developed for chemical and physical process agents and anticipated by-products. Potential cumulative occupational exposures of the six cases were(More)
