BACKGROUND Enoxaparin has recently been shown to be superior to unfractionated heparin in patients with unstable angina/non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Theoretical advantages of low-molecular-weight heparin versus unfractionated heparin include a higher ratio of anti-Xa to anti-IIa activity (3:1 for enoxaparin), a more predictable dose response that(More)
There is considerable evidence that individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) experience problems interpreting the emotional state of others. However, the functional implications of these changes have not been fully investigated. A study of 13 individuals with severe TBI and an equal number of matched controls found that TBI participants had(More)
Do gestures merely reflect problem-solving processes, or do they play a functional role in problem solving? We hypothesized that gestures highlight and structure perceptual-motor information, and thereby make such information more likely to be used in problem solving. Participants in two experiments solved problems requiring the prediction of gear movement,(More)
PRIMARY OBJECTIVE To understand how the spouses of individuals with severe TBI experience the process of supporting their partners with decision-making. DESIGN This study adopted a constructivist grounded theory approach, with data consisting of in-depth interviews conducted with spouses over a 12-month period. Data were analysed through an iterative(More)
PURPOSE To raise professional awareness of factors that may influence the support offered by clinicians to people with acquired brain injury (ABI), and to consider the potential implications of these factors in terms of post-injury rehabilitation and living. METHOD A review of the literature was conducted to identify factors that determine how clinicians(More)
There is growing recognition of the right of all individuals, including those with cognitive impairment, to make decisions about their own lives. However, little is known about how the process of decision making is experienced after severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). This study used constructivist grounded theory to explore processes used by adults with(More)
PURPOSE Although adults who sustain a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) require support to make decisions in their lives, little is known about their experience of this process. The aim of this study was to explore how participation in decision making contributes to self-conceptualization in adults with severe TBI. METHOD We used constructivist grounded(More)
People with traumatic brain injury (TBI) describe everyday interactions as a long-term challenge frequently associated with ongoing stress. Communication-specific Coping Intervention (CommCope-I) is a new treatment developed to target coping in the context of communication breakdown. The intervention incorporates principles of cognitive behavioural therapy,(More)
