Autonomic dysreflexia severity during urodynamics and cystoscopy in individuals with spinal cord injury
TLDR
Even though cystoscopy filled the bladder to lesser volumes than did urodynamics, the individuals developed greater changes in systolic BP, indicating that stimulation of the urethra/prostate/internal sphincter region probably is a more potent stimulus of AD than just the filling of the bladder.

Training effectiveness when teaching the International Standards for Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury (ISNCSCI) to medical students
TLDR
The training effectiveness of ISNCSCI through self-study is reliable and the correct answers to key points could remain for at least 2 days without the need to use a reference, however, some specialized knowledge could not be transmitted without more detailed discussions and case presentations. Expand
Cardiovascular response during urodynamics in individuals with spinal cord injury
TLDR
Individuals with cervical SCI, DSD, poor bladder compliance or >2 years after SCI were associated with a higher possibility of developing AD during urodynamics, and AD was more severe in complete individuals and was exacerbated with time after injury. Expand
Development and validation of a bowel-routine-based self-report questionnaire for sacral sparing after spinal cord injury
TLDR
The validity of this questionnaire for the assessment of sacral sparing in up to 12 months post injury is good except for the motor function when there was increased AST, which could be considered as an alternative tool for digital rectal examination. Expand
The influence of question design on the response to self-assessment in www.elearnSCI.org: a submodule pilot study
TLDR
Investigation of the difference in response to self-assessment questions in the original and an adjusted version for a submodule of www.elearnSCI.org found variations in design influence the response to questions. Expand
The practice of spinal cord injury core data collection among Chinese physicians: a survey-based study
TLDR
The self-reported practice of data collection regarding date of birth, acute admission and inpatient discharge, gender, vertebral injury, associated injury, spinal surgery and frequency of neurological examination are consistent with the information in the ISCICDS among the majority (⩾76%) of physicians. Expand
Effect of and satisfaction with www.elearnSCI.org for training of nurse students: a submodule pilot study
TLDR
Self-study and lecture presentation are effective methods for training the content of www.elearnSCI.org to nurse students and they indicated that they were very satisfied with the training and no students were unsatisfied. Expand
Feasibility of using training cases from International Spinal Cord Injury Core Data Set for testing of International Standards for Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury items
TLDR
Majority of the facts related to SL, ML and AIS are included in the five training cases of ISCICDS and it is feasible to test the above facts within the ISNCSCI. Expand
