Previous work has demonstrated the correlation of increased blood perfusion in the orbital muscles and stress levels for human beings. It has also been suggested that this periorbital perfusion can be quantified through the processing of thermal video. The idea has been based on the fact that skin temperature is heavily modulated by superficial blood flow.(More)

BACKGROUND Healthcare workers' (HCWs) uniforms become contaminated with bacteria during normal use, and this may contribute to hospital-acquired infections. Antimicrobial uniforms are currently marketed as a means of reducing this contamination. OBJECTIVE To compare the extent of bacterial contamination of uniforms and skin when HCWs wear 1 of 2(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether treating hospitalists can identify and address early postdischarge problems through a structured telephone call. STUDY DESIGN Prospective cohort study. METHODS We studied patients insured through a managed care program who were discharged from a general internal medicine service of a university-affiliated public safety(More)
