This study evaluated the relevance of the Lake Louise acute mountain sickness (AMS) scoring system in comparison with other AMS scoring systems. To achieve this objective nine subjects were submitted to a 9-hr exposure to hypoxia in a hypobaric chamber (altitude 4500-5500 m) that led to the development of AMS. AMS was scored at the end of this exposure(More)
In order to study relationships between acute mountain sickness (AMS) observations done both during a short-term hypoxic exposure in a hypobaric chamber, and in field conditions during a high altitude expedition, nine subjects were submitted to a 9-h hypoxic exposure in a hypobaric chamber. Then, they experienced a high altitude expedition in the Himalayas.(More)
BACKGROUND The use of hair dyes has been inconsistently associated with an increased risk of lymphomas. We explore hair dye use and lymphoma risk in a case-control study in Spain. METHODS We studied 574 incident lymphoma cases and 616 hospital controls in a multicentric study in Spain. Information on hair dye use was obtained through a personal interview(More)
BACKGROUND To analyze the interplay between diet, physical activity and health-related quality of life in a Spanish randomly selected sample of individuals attended in general practitioners offices with intermediate cardiovascular risk. METHODS This study analyzed 314 subjects, aged 35-74 years (50.6% women), from the MARK study, conducted in Spain.(More)
We examined the influence of the reproductive cycle and environmental variables on the gonadal fatty acid profile in the tropical scallop Nodipecten nodosus. Individuals from a natural population in north-eastern Venezuela (Caribbean Sea) were sampled monthly during one year. The gonadosomatic index (GSI) and a visual assessment of gonadic status are also(More)
Voluta musica is considered an endangered species in Venezuela for two main reasons: collectors appreciate shells and its incidental catch in fishery of Arca zebra. Population and ecological parameters including abundance, distribution, reproduction, length-frequency distributions, color pattern of shells and influence of biotic and abiotic factors on(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the level of therapeutic inertia (TI), and the factors associated to the patient, doctor and the health organisation, in hypertensive patients treated in Primary Care (PC). DESIGN Cross-sectional, multicentre study. SETTING A sample of PC Teams from all over Spain. PARTICIPANTS The study was conducted among PC doctors using a(More)
The diversity of a sublittoral epifaunal mollusk community of Punta Patilla, Sucre State, Venezuela, was studied from September 1990 to September 1991. We identified 25 species (14 bivalves and 11 gastropods) of mollusks that inhabit gravel, soft sand and bottoms covered by Thalassia testudinum. Total diversity indices were H' = 3.42. J' = 0.74 and 1-D =(More)
The reproductive cycle of the eared ark Anadara notabilis and its relationship with environmental factors was evaluated every 15 days between March 2004 and February 2005 at the northern part of the Peninsula de Araya, Venezuela. Environmental factors measured included temperature, salinity, chlorophyll a, and total seston, including the particulate organic(More)
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is successfully used on a year-round scale on only 15% of the area of roses under glass. Obstacles for further expansion of IPM practices among rose growers are the control of the spidermite Tetranychus urticae and the greenhouse whitefly Trialeurodes vaporariorum. The research stations of Naaldwijk, Aalsmeer and Boskoop(More)
