INTRODUCTION Present implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) have algorithms that discriminate supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) from ventricular tachycardia (VT). One type of algorithm is based on differences in morphology of ventricular electrograms during VT and SVT. Prior SVT-VT discrimination algorithms have not undergone real-time evaluation(More)
The current study investigated the underlying dimensions of DSM-5 PTSD symptoms in an epidemiological sample of Chinese earthquake survivors. The sample consisted of 810 females and 386 males, with a mean age of 47.9 years (SD=10.0, range: 16-73). PTSD symptoms were assessed using the PTSD Checklist for DSM-5, and alternative models were evaluated with(More)
This pilot study aimed at fostering resilience among people living with HIV and improving the HIV-negative participants' acceptance of people living with HIV. A group of 75 people living with HIV who were former blood/plasma donors and 36 HIV-negative fellow villagers in rural China participated in the intervention. The 8 sessions lasted for 4 months and(More)
The current study investigated the factor structure of posttraumatic stress symptoms assessed by the Impact Event Scale-Revised (IES-R) in a large sample of individuals from China who recently experienced a destructive earthquake. The results of the confirmatory factor analysis indicated that a four-factor structure (intrusion, avoidance-numbing,(More)
Formation of a solid solution of a drug in a water-soluble polymer is one of the primary techniques used to improve the dissolution rate and thus bioavailability of a poorly water-soluble drug. Understanding and detecting the state of the drug inside such a polymer matrix is critically important since issues such as drug stability, safety and efficacy can(More)
Nanothermal analysis (NTA) supported by atomic force microscopy imaging has been used to study the changes that occur at the surfaces of solid dispersions of the drug felodipine and the water soluble polymer, polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) on exposure to standard pharmaceutical environmental stress conditions. Exposure to relative humidities above 75% (at 40(More)
Eye tracking is the focus problem in the researching domain of human-machine interaction and computer vision in recent years. The method of using a single eye location and detection algorithm has poor real-time performance. So a new eye tracking method is proposed in this paper. This method combines the location and detection algorithm with the grey(More)
AIM To evaluate the role of microcirculatory disorder (MCD) and the therapeutic effectiveness of tetramethylpyrazine (TMP) on intestinal mucosa injury in rats with acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP). METHODS A total of 192 Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into three groups: normal control group (C group), ANP group not treated with TMP (P(More)
