The aims of the study were (1) to determine whether miRNAs (microRNAs) can be detected in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and blood of patients with ischemic stroke and (2) to compare these miRNA profiles with corresponding profiles from other neurological patients to address whether the miRNA profiles of CSF or blood have potential usefulness as diagnostic(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to provide data on the use of immunomodulatory therapies in a population comprising all treated patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) in Denmark. PATIENTS AND METHODS From the introduction of immunomodulatory therapy in Denmark in 1996 through 2003, all patients that started immunomodulatory(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to quantitatively measure and describe the amount and pattern of physical activity in patients within the first week after acute ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack using accelerometers. METHODS A total of 100 patients with acute ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack admitted to our(More)
BACKGROUND A new electroencephalogram monitor, the Narcotrend, was developed to measure anesthetic depth. The authors compared the Narcotrend, the Bispectral Index, and classic electroencephalographic and hemodynamic parameters during anesthesia with propofol and remifentanil. METHODS The authors investigated 25 patients undergoing laminectomy at(More)
The aim of the study was to (a) assess the feasibility of intensive treadmill training in patients with acute ischemic stroke, (b) test whether physical activity of the legs during training increases with time, and (c) evaluate to what extent training sessions contribute toward the overall physical activity of these patients. Twenty hospitalized patients(More)
INTRODUCTION We studied how effectively a mixed group of helpers could ventilate a manikin with a new rescue breathing device after a short period of instruction. The device consists of a mouthcap, a "glossopalatinal tube" (GPT) reaching between tongue and palate and a connector for a bag, ventilator or the rescuers mouth. Rather than reaching behind the(More)
