BACKGROUND This prospective, observational cohort study was designed to determine the feasibility of implementing a reduced enteral fasting protocol in mechanically ventilated trauma patients undergoing selected operative and nonoperative procedures. METHODS Critically ill, mechanically ventilated trauma patients undergoing selected operative and(More)
OBJECTIVE We compared the quality of care in admitted febrile neutropenic cancer patients presenting through the emergency department (ED) vs those directly admitted (DA) from the clinic or infusion center. We hypothesized that the quality of care would be comparable between these 2 pathways. METHODS We conducted a retrospective, observational cohort(More)
The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) currently uses a comprehensive, network-level pavement management system known as Network Optimization System (NOS). Annual condition surveys for roughness and faulting generate important inputs for NOS. Recently, AASHTO has published provisional standards for condition surveys in order to harmonize data(More)
BACKGROUND The Walgreens Connected Care Multiple Sclerosis (CCMS) treatment management program provides enhanced levels of monitoring, oversight, and care for patients taking MS disease-modifying agents. This study compared rates of adherence to MS medications for patients participating in the CCMS program for at least 6 months with those for patients(More)
The expansion of piñon-juniper woodlands the past 100 years in the western United States has resulted in large scale efforts to kill trees and recover sagebrush steppe rangelands. It is important to evaluate vegetation recovery following woodland control to develop best management practices. In this study, we compared two fuel reduction treatments and a(More)
An efficient and robust artificial boundary condition is important for successful near-surface seismic modeling. Especially in near-surface seismic modeling related to surface wave application such as in the MASW (Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves) method (Park et al., 1999), the significance becomes critical because correct amplitude and phase(More)
