This article discusses occupational therapy for children with perinatal HIV infection and their care-givers. An interdisciplinary early intervention and preschool program serving these children is described. Current medical and neurological research is reviewed to serve as a basis for occupational therapy intervention. Therapeutic approaches that integrate(More)
N Engl J Med 2008;359:e18. Copyright © 2008 Massachusetts Medical Society. Introduction Peripheral blood vessels in neonates are often friable and difficult to access, particularly in the preterm population, and traditional central venous catheters are both challenging and risky to place. For this reason, umbilical-artery catheters (UACs) and umbilical-vein(More)
Data from 8 mothers of preschool children with cerebral palsy were collected through intensive interviews concerning their experience with home programs. The data were analyzed with qualitative techniques. Each mother had previously participated in or attempted to use a home treatment program with her child, but none was currently doing so. The mothers'(More)
Simulation-based training is a novel approach that facilitates the use of higher order thinking skills. Simulation-based training challenges medical professionals to develop cognitive, technical, and behavioral skills through the use of mannequins, working medical equipment, and human colleagues. During scenarios, trainees must make use of their knowledge(More)
The boundaries between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, known as critical transition zones (CTZ), are dynamic interfaces for fluxes of water, sediment, solutes, and gases. Moreover, they often support unique or diverse biotas. Soils, especially those of riparian zones, have not been recognized as CTZ even though they play a critical role in regulating(More)
Introduction Many advances in neonatology in the last several decades have allowed for the resuscitation, support, and survival of more preterm infants. The mortality associated with respiratory disease in this population of micropremies has been altered significantly by the use of antenatal corticosteroids, postnatal surfactant, improved respiratory(More)
Neonatal care occurs in extremely complex and dynamic environments and requires providers to operate under intense time pressure in coordination with multiple disciplines. Teaching the clinical skills requisite to effective practice requires the meticulous application of curricular design principles. Simulation can be used as an effective instructional(More)
BACKGROUND Healthcare professionals are expected to make rapid, correct decisions in critical situations despite what may be a lack of real practical experience in a particular crisis situation. Successful resolution of a medical crisis depends upon demonstration not only of appropriate technical skills but also of key behavioral skills (eg, leadership,(More)
Scanning electron microscopy was used to investigate the presence of microorganisms, probably bacteria, on the gut surface of earthworms. The washed surfaces of the intestines of two earthworms, Lumbricus terrestris and Octolasion cyaneum, were examined. Numerous organisms resembling bacteria were observed throughout the gut, some in situations suggesting(More)
