Although the birth prevalence of all malformations was 3.5% for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal infants, significant differences were(More)
Venous serum glucose concentrations determined by a laboratory hexokinase technique were compared over a wide range of glucose concentrations with concentrations of capillary blood glucose determined by three reflectance meter techniques currently available in the United States (Eyetone and Dextrometer, Ames Company; StatTek, Bio-Dynamics BMC) and by visual(More)
A series of studies was undertaken in 1989 to validate the data held by the Western Australian Congenital Malformations Registry. Comparison with hospital discharge data identified 1585 children six years of age or younger with malformations discharged from hospitals in Western Australia in 1986, 226 of whom were not already recorded on the Congenital(More)
People with Cystic Fibrosis have a high risk of MRSA infection. Prevalence has increased from 7% of patients in 2001 to 17.2% of patients in 2005 in the USA (1). It is unclear whether MRSA respiratory infection influences lung function, which antibiotics (if any) should be used to treat MRSA infection and for how long. This study investigates the prevalence(More)
Scapa Flow in Orkney is one of the major world centres for wreck diving. Because of the geography of Orkney and the nature of the diving, it is possible to make relatively accurate estimates of the number of dives taking place. The denominator of dive activity allows the unusual opportunity of precise calculation of accident rates. In 1999, one in every 178(More)
