Electronic patient record (EPR) systems have a huge impact on nursing documentation. Although the largest group of end-users of EPRs, nurses have had minimal input in their design. This study aimed to review current research on how nurses experience using the EPR for documentation. A literature search was conducted in Medline and Cinahl of original,(More)
Advanced mobile devices allow registered nurses and nursing students to keep up-to-date with expanding health-related knowledge but are rarely used in nursing in Sweden. This study aims at describing registered nurses' and nursing students' views regarding the use of advanced mobile devices in nursing practice. A cross-sectional study was completed in 2012;(More)
Oral movements in rats administered one of three doses of either a D1 agonist (SK&F 38393) or a D2 agonist (LY171555) were observed via closed-circuit television and simultaneously recorded using a computerized video analysis system which measured the distance between two fluorescent dots painted above and below the rat's mouth. The D1 agonist SK&F 38393(More)
Single intraperitoneal doses of various antipsychotic drugs (clozapine 6, 12, 25 mg/kg, sulpiride 100 mg/kg, haloperidol 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 mg/kg, fluphenazine 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 mg/kg) induced a depression of the spontaneous chewing movement (SCM) rate in rats during the first 6-8 hours. Haloperidol and fluphenazine elicited a rebound increase in SCM on day 2-5,(More)
INTRODUCTION Inappropriate medication among elderly people increases the risk of adverse drug-drug interactions, drug-related falls and hospital admissions. In order to prevent these effects it is necessary to obtain a profile of the patients' medication. A personal digital assistant (PDA) can be used as a medical decision support system (MDSS) to obtain a(More)
Emergency dental and fearful dental patients were questioned in order to investigate the relationship between dental fear and different dental beliefs. The instruments used were the dental anxiety scale and the dental beliefs survey. The study also evaluated a Swedish version of the beliefs survey. The mean anxiety scale scores were 9.4 for emergency and(More)
Inappropriate use of medicines increases the risk of hospital admissions for the elderly. Not only does this lead to unnecessary suffering for the patients but also incurs a great financial cost to the society. A medicine decision support system in a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), with a barcode reader, can provide an overview of the patients' complete(More)
BACKGROUND Health care personnel need access to updated information anywhere and at any time, and a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) has the potential to meet these requirements. A PDA is a mobile tool which has been employed widely for various purposes in health care practice, and the level of its use is expected to increase. Loaded with suitable functions(More)
Synthetic agonists for the tachykinin NK1 and NK3 receptors were bilaterally infused at three dose levels (4.2, 0.17, and 0.007 nmol) into each substantia nigra of freely moving rats and oral behaviors were monitored for 30 min postinfusion. It was found that all doses of senktide, an agonist at the NK3 receptor, induced a significant increase of(More)
The effects of methylazoxymethanol (MAM)-induced brain lesions on vacuous chewing movements (VCM) were examined in rats given chronic haloperidol treatment (0.1 or 1 mg/kg/day) for 18 months. At the end of the experiment striatal, pallidal, and nigral activities of glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) were measured. MAM-lesioned rats had an elevated rate of VCMs(More)
