Adherence is of fundamental importance to ART success. We examined the association of self-reported non-adherence with demographic factors, health and behaviour issues, and virological outcome, in a multi-clinic study. Seven hundred and seventy-eight HIV patients in five clinics in London and Brighton completed a questionnaire on adherence and HIV/health(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to explore levels of doctor-patient concordance during the making of decisions regarding HIV treatment switching and stopping in relation to patient health-related outcomes. METHODS Adult patients attending five HIV clinics in the United Kingdom were requested to complete the study questionnaire, which included a(More)
In the present investigation a method of quantifying electromyograms (EMG's) from different muscle groups of the body to evaluate total muscular activity is described. A unipolar pickup, i.e., one standard silver cup surface electrode over each active muscle, was used because the EMG outputs with this electrode configuration during the same muscular(More)
The arterial and mixed venous carbon dioxide tension gradient has been shown to increase when there is a decrease in cardiac output. Monitoring central venous gases is an attractive alternative to monitoring mixed venous gases in circulatory failure because central venous catheterisation is a less invasive procedure than pulmonary artery catheterisation.(More)
RATIONALE Hospitalised patients with acute exacerbation of COPD may deteriorate despite treatment, with early readmission being common. OBJECTIVES To investigate whether neural respiratory drive, measured using second intercostal space parasternal muscle electromyography (EMGpara), would identify worsening dyspnoea and physician-defined inpatient clinical(More)
Discussion of acceleration protection measures should be based on analysis of relevant accident data, including determination of high risk aircraft, G profiles, and pilot descriptions. There were 18 accidents (14 fatalities) attributed to G-induced loss of consciousness (G-LOC) in the United States Air Force (USAF) from 1982 through 1990. All 18 accidents(More)
Two hundred and twelve patients with recognizable coronary artery block and no other pathology were selected using an interactive computer data retrieval system. The relationship of coronary artery collaterals to left ventricular (LV) dysfunction was investigated. Analysis revealed the significant role of the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery(More)
BACKGROUND Respiratory management of obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS) focusses on the control of sleep-disordered breathing rather than the treatment of obesity. Currently, there are no data from randomised trials of weight loss targeted rehabilitation programmes for patients with OHS. INTERVENTION A 3-month multimodal hybrid inpatient-outpatient(More)
