Heart rate variability: origins, methods, and interpretive caveats.
Components of heart rate variability have attracted considerable attention in psychology and medicine and have become important dependent measures in psychophysiology and behavioral medicine.Expand

Role of endothelial shear stress in the natural history of coronary atherosclerosis and vascular remodeling: molecular, cellular, and vascular behavior.
Although the entire coronary tree is exposed to the atherogenic effect of the systemic risk factors, atherosclerotic lesions form at specific arterial regions, where low and oscillatory endothelialExpand

From vulnerable plaque to vulnerable patient: a call for new definitions and risk assessment strategies: Part I.
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease results in >19 million deaths annually, and coronary heart disease accounts for the majority of this toll. Despite major advances in treatment of coronary heartExpand

Quantifying Uncertainties in Climate System Properties with the Use of Recent Climate Observations
We derive joint probability density distributions for three key uncertain properties of the climate system, using an optimal fingerprinting approach to compare simulations of an intermediateExpand

The Critical Care Safety Study: The incidence and nature of adverse events and serious medical errors in intensive care*
Objective:Critically ill patients require high-intensity care and may be at especially high risk of iatrogenic injury because they are severely ill. We sought to study the incidence and nature ofExpand

Effect of reducing interns' work hours on serious medical errors in intensive care units.
BACKGROUND Although sleep deprivation has been shown to impair neurobehavioral performance, few studies have measured its effects on medical errors. METHODS We conducted a prospective, randomizedExpand

Depression, Heart Rate Variability, and Acute Myocardial Infarction
Background—Clinical depression is associated with an increased risk for mortality in patients with a recent myocardial infarction (MI). Reduced heart rate variability (HRV) has been suggested as aExpand

Estimated PDFs of climate system properties including natural and anthropogenic forcings
[1] We present revised probability density functions (PDF) for climate system properties (climate sensitivity, rate of deep-ocean heat uptake, and the net aerosol forcing strength) that include theExpand

Circadian variation in the frequency of onset of acute myocardial infarction.
To determine whether the onset of myocardial infarction occurs randomly throughout the day, we analyzed the time of onset of pain in 2999 patients admitted with myocardial infarction. A markedExpand

Climate Sensitivity: Analysis of Feedback Mechanisms
We study climate sensitivity and feedback processes in three independent ways : (1) by using a three dimensional (3-D) global cli- mate model for experiments in which solar irra- diance So isExpand
