The present study offered a constructive replication of an earlier study which demonstrated significant increases in theta EEG activity following theta binaural beat (BB) entrainment training and significant increases in hypnotic susceptibility. This study improved upon the earlier small-sample, multiple-baseline investigation by employing a larger sample,(More)
EEG activity at the midfrontal (Fz) region was recorded during pre- and postbaselines, live hypnotic induction, arm levitation and progressive relaxation (PNR) deepening, and therapeutic ego-enhancing suggestions among 60 college student volunteers, previously screened with the Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale, Form C. Comparisons across conditions(More)
Objective: To compare the overall utilisation patterns of lipid-lowering drugs between 1990 and 1994 in Australia, Finland, Italy, Norway and Sweden as well as the pattern of use with respect to age and gender in Italy and Sweden. Methods: Data were retrieved from regulatory authorities in each country for the 5-year period and analysed according to the(More)
Using light and electron microscopy, we examined two conjunctival filtering blebs that had been treated with mitomycin just prior to trabeculectomy and were later excised due to ocular hypotony. Light microscopy showed attenuated epithelium, loosely arranged subepithelial connective tissue, and scattered acute and chronic inflammatory cells. Electron(More)
This article summarizes and analyzes possible explanations for the near doubling, since 1960, of the proportion of children with limitations of activity due to chronic illness as reported in the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS). We examine several possible explanations for the upward trend in prevalence including: changes in survey design and(More)
The "Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981" included a number of provisions designed to reduce federal spending for health care and to increase state authority over health programs. Evidence concerning the financial condition and health care needs of children served by federally-financed health programs, and recent trends in coverage and eligibility,(More)
Although neonatal intensive care has been praised widely for individual successes, its effectiveness has not been established systematically or conclusively. The literature consists principally of reports from individual intensive care units with sample sizes too small for statistical validation or generalization. This study analyzes the results obtained by(More)
The specialties of family practice and pediatrics, as well as the numbers of nonphysician child health practitioners, are growing much faster than is the population of children. Current figures suggest that the aggregate supply of practitioners is already adequate and will be in excess by 1990. These overall statements, however, mask the fact that(More)
