The purpose of this study was to assess mitochondrial function and glutathione (a mitochondrial antioxidant) in response to oxidative stress in mitochondria in vitro obtained from broilers with and without pulmonary hypertension syndrome (PHS). Liver mitochondria from Control and PHS broilers were incubated with 0, 1, and 5-mM tertiary-butyl hydroperoxide(More)
The growth of Internet applications has substantially broadened the potential for its use in global telehealth. This pilot project used the virtual reality world of Second Life for diabetic patients to meet with their nurse practitioners for their maintenance visits. Using avatars and the online patient portal, these scheduled visits were designed to meet(More)
Three years ago at the Medinfo conference a prototype version of a clinical log for nursing students at Vanderbilt University was demonstrated. The purpose of the log is to document the types of clinical experiences the students are participating in as part of their academic program. We collected log data during that first year and received ongoing(More)
We previously reported an impaired ability to regulate hepatic mitochondrial state 4 respiration rate in response to sequential additions of adenosine diphosphate in pulmonary hypertension syndrome (PHS). As proton conductance is a major contributor to State 4 respiration, the major goal of this study was to investigate the nature of proton conductance in(More)
Traditional techniques for collecting data on clinical experiences have been greatly flawed. Data cannot be easily collected in real time to make programmatic or placement changes "on the fly". Furthermore, it is difficult to look at data across students, specialty areas, and years because the data is typically not in a digital format. In response to this(More)
UNLABELLED Three years ago we developed a web-based clinical log for Advanced Practice nursing students to record patient encounters. Although it solved many problems, students complained about the time it would take to complete each encounter since they actually entered the data twice, once immediately after seeing the patient and later on the web. THE(More)
The analysis of binomial data that exhibit overdispersion in a randomized complete block design is investigated. More specifically, the asymptotic distribution of the test statistic for the treatment effects in the presence of overdispersion and random effects is considered. A Monte Carlo simulation attempts to quantify the error in the approximation by the(More)
