This study examined the control of ventilation during repetitive bouts of isometric exercise in simulated sailing. Eight male sailors completed four successive 3-min bouts of similar isometric effort on a dinghy simulator, bouts were separated by 15-s rest intervals. Quadriceps muscle integrated electromyograph activity (iEMG) was recorded during each bout(More)
BACKGROUND Emergency Department (ED) crowding is well recognized, and multiple studies have demonstrated its negative effect on patient care. STUDY OBJECTIVES This study aimed to assess the effect of an intervention, Supplemented Triage and Rapid Treatment (START), on standard ED performance measures. The START program complemented standard ED triage with(More)
BACKGROUND Physician screening is one of many front-end interventions being implemented to improve emergency department (ED) efficiency. STUDY OBJECTIVE We aimed to quantify the operational and financial impact of this intervention at an urban tertiary academic center. METHODS We conducted a 2-year before-after analysis of a physician screening system(More)
BACKGROUND The erosion of the early mortality advantage of elective endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) compared with open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm remains without a satisfactory explanation. METHODS An individual-patient data meta-analysis of four multicentre randomized trials of EVAR versus open repair was conducted to a prespecified analysis(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about why patients choose emergency departments (EDs) to receive care. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to measure the distribution and frequency of the stated reasons why patients choose the ED for care and why primary care physicians (PCPs) think their patients utilize the ED. METHODS The authors conducted a survey of patients(More)
A light injection system using LEDs and optical fibres was designed for the calibration and monitoring of the photomultiplier array of the SNO+ experiment at SNOLAB. Large volume, non-segmented, low-background detectors for rare event physics, such as the multi-purpose SNO+ experiment, need a calibration system that allow an accurate and regular measurement(More)
