A total of 959 faecal samples were obtained from dogs in 12 native communities in Northern Saskatchewan, Central and Northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories. All samples were examined using a flotation technique. Samples from an area of endemic human amoebic infections were also examined by a formol-ether sedimentation method. Eighteen necropsies(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was designed to compare the incidence and nature of facial nerve stimulation (FNS) in patients receiving cochlear implants (CI) manufactured by Cochlear Corporation, Advanced Bionics Corporation, and MedEl. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective chart review at a tertiary referral center. METHODS The charts of 600 patients who received CIs(More)
Cochlear implant programming necessitates accurate setting of programming levels, including maximum stimulation levels, of all active electrodes. Frequently, clinical techniques are adequate for setting these levels; however, they are sometimes insufficient (e.g., very young children). In the Nucleus 24, several methods have been suggested for estimation of(More)
BACKGROUND Unilateral centrifugation (UC) is a test of utricular function that involves the eccentric displacement of a patient while undergoing high velocity rotation. These off-center placements permit evaluation of utricles as only one organ is subjected to linear stimulation. Currently, several different protocols are used for translation times between(More)
The purpose of this study was to design an automated mental alerting task that could be utilized when performing vestibular testing on a broad range of patient populations, including certain difficult-to-test populations, such as the hard-of-hearing. A device was developed that utilized vibrotactile stimuli output to two vibrators placed on the subject's(More)
