CONTEXT Exercise or rest is commonly prescribed as treatment for patellofemoral pain syndrome. STUDY SELECTION This study is based on Level I or II research studies examining the effects of exercise and rest on decreasing pain (visual analog scale) and increasing function (Kujala Scoring Questionnaire) using human participants. Articles were limited to(More)
CONTEXT Fatigue has been shown to disrupt dynamic stability in healthy volunteers. It is not known if wearing prophylactic ankle supports can improve dynamic stability in fatigued athletes. OBJECTIVE To determine the type of ankle brace that may be more effective at providing dynamic stability after a jump-landing task during normal and fatigued(More)
A statewide survey was designed to develop a better understanding of the current practices and problems encountered with medication administration through enteral feeding catheters (EFCs). The sample of 223 registered nurses and licensed practical nurses estimated that a median of 10% of patients received medications through an EFC. EFC obstruction was(More)
Thrombocytosis is generally defined as platelet counts greater than 400,000/mm3. Thrombocytosis can be either primary or secondary. Adrenalin was one of the first drugs noticed to cause platelet elevations, probably due to demargination of platelets in the pulmonary vasculature. Vinca alkaloids have the most convincing data to show that they can induce(More)
We observed 70 patients with asymptomatic carotid bruits with and without stenoses for cerebral and myocardial ischemic events. Four patients developed transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) without subsequent cerebral infarctions; all of the TIAs occurred distal to vessels with greater than or equal to 50% stenoses. Three cerebral infarctions occurred, but only(More)
One would think that risk factors for transient ischemic attack (TIA) and asymptomatic carotid bruit (ACB) would be similar. In our referral population and in several previously reported cohort populations, however, men outnumber women among patients with TIA. In contrast, women outnumber men among patients with ACB. We found in two independent populations(More)
CONTEXT Clinicians should consider multiple factors when estimating tissue-heating rates. OBJECTIVE To report 3 separate occurrences of blisters during an ultrasound treatment experiment. BACKGROUND While we were conducting a research experiment comparing the measurement capabilities of 2 different intramuscular temperature devices, 3 female(More)
The severity of coronary artery atherosclerosis correlates with increased plasma concentrations of total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and triglycerides and with decreased plasma concentrations of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). The role of plasma lipoproteins in the pathogenesis of cerebral atherosclerosis,(More)
CONTEXT The superimposed-burst (SIB) technique is commonly used to quantify central activation failure after knee-joint injury, but its reliability has not been established in pathologic cohorts. OBJECTIVE To assess within-session and between-sessions reliability of the SIB technique in patients with patellofemoral pain. DESIGN Descriptive laboratory(More)
