OBJECTIVES To analyze the relationship between regular physical activity, as assessed by accelerometer and 7-day physical activity recall (PAR) with vascular structure and function based on carotid intima-media thickness, pulse wave velocity, central and peripheral augmentation index and the ambulatory arterial stiffness index in adults. METHODS This(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence of adverse drug events (ADE) in hospitalized patients, identify those that were potentially preventable, and asses the drug classes involved, the clinical symptoms and the type of medication errors that led to the preventable ADE. PATIENTS AND METHOD An observational study of ADE prevalence in(More)
BACKGROUND The cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) can reflect both central and peripheral arterial stiffness. Metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its components may increase arterial stiffness and the risk of cardiovascular diseases. However, the correlation of MetS and its components with arterial stiffness is still(More)
BACKGROUND The cardio ankle vascular index (CAVI) is a new index of the overall stiffness of the artery from the origin of the aorta to the ankle. This index can estimate the risk of atherosclerosis. We aimed to find the relationship between CAVI and target organ damage (TOD), vascular structure and function, and cardiovascular risk factors in Caucasian(More)
BACKGROUND Adverse events (AEs) cause harm in patients and disturbance for the professionals involved in the event (second victims). This study assessed the impact of AEs in primary care (PC) and hospitals in Spain on second victims. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted. We carried out a survey based on a random sample of doctors and nurses from(More)
OBJECTIVE To review a poorly studied pathology in the scientific literature. MATERIAL AND METHODS An observational, longitudinal and ambispective study of a series of 51 intramuscular lipomas in 50 patients. The frequency distribution of qualitative variables, and the median and the interquartile range (IQR) for continuous variables were calculated. The(More)
BACKGROUND New technologies could facilitate changes in lifestyle and improve public health. However, no large randomized, controlled studies providing scientific evidence of the benefits of their use have been made. The aims of this study are to develop and validate a smartphone application, and to evaluate the effect of adding this tool to a standardized(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects on healthy eating or the Mediterranean diet adherence achieved by interventions suitable for implementation in primary care settings. METHODS Medline (PubMed) and The Cochrane Library bibliographic searches retrieved randomized controlled trials published in English or Spanish, January 1990-January 2013. The inclusion(More)
BACKGROUND Adverse events (AE) are also the cause of suffering in health professionals involved. This study was designed to identify and analyse organization-level strategies adopted in both primary care and hospitals in Spain to address the impact of serious AE on second and third victims. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted in healthcare(More)
AIM We assessed whether there is an association between the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) score and the carotid intima media thickness (IMT), the pulse wave velocity (PWV) and the central augmentation index (CAIx) that is independent of the subject's cardiovascular risk and pharmacological treatment. METHODS The CAVI score was measured in 500(More)
