Many nonpharmacologic (behavioral) techniques are being proposed for the therapy of essential hypertension. The research in this area is reviewed and divided roughly into two categories: the biofeedback and relaxation methodologies. While feedback can be used to lower pressures during laboratory training sessions, studies designed to alter basal blood(More)
Morphine dependent rats that underwent naloxone-precipitated withdrawal in the presence of both gustatory and audiovisual stimuli subsequently avoided the taste cue, but not the audiovisual one. All environmental stimuli do not associate equally with withdrawal in the rat. The role of stimulus factors should be investigated in other forms of(More)

Attempts were made to condition taste aversions to the objects of two mineral-specific hungers. Both the innate preference of adrenalectomized rats for sodium and the learned preference of parathyroidectomized rats for calcium were studied. None of the sodium-deficient rats poisoned after drinking sodium chloride (NaCl) reached a taste-avoidance criterion,(More)

Proximal DVT (thrombus in the popliteal or femoral veins) can usually be diagnosed and treated at the initial ED encounter. When proximal DVT has been ruled out, isolated calf-vein deep venous thrombosis (IC-DVT) often(More)
