We used the Rasch (1980) model to develop new pictures for the Thematic Apperception Test (C. D. Morgan & Murray, 1938; McClelland, Atkinson, Clark, & Lowell, 1953) or picture story exercise to measure need for achievement (nAch). In Experiments 1 and 2, we analyzed stories to assess the difficulty level of a total of 8 pictures using the multifaceted Rasch(More)
Sister chromatid exchange (SCE) frequencies were studied in differentially stained lymphocytes from 47 patients with malignant lymphoma. Thirteen patients were untreated when studied. The mean SCE frequency [±standard error (SE)] for these patients was 12.7±0.9 per mitosis. The mean score for 40 controls was 6.1±0.3. SCE mean scores were significantly(More)
An otherwise healthy 8-year-old neutered male, mixed breed dog was anesthetized for surgical removal of multiple uroliths. Pre-anesthetic medication was midazolam, glycopyrrolate, and morphine. Anesthesia was induced with propofol and maintained with isoflurane in oxygen. One hour after induction, the patient moved and propofol was administered.(More)

Measurable clinical differences between inferior dental block injections using 25-gauge or 30-gauge short needles for children is addressed in(More)
