The test-retest reliability of the survey form of the Leyton Obsessional Inventory-Child Version was examined over a 2-wk. interval. Three age groups of children participated in the study, 8- to 10-year-olds, 11- to 13-year-olds, and 14-to 16-year-olds (N = 106). For the total Obsessive scores, the test-retest Pearson correlation coefficients for the three(More)
BACKGROUND There is increasing interest in finding novel approaches to reduce health disparities in readmissions for acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). Text messaging is a promising platform for improving chronic disease self-management in low-income populations, yet is largely unexplored in ADHF. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this pre-post study was to(More)
Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia in heart failure and a risk factor for stroke. Risk assessment tools can assist clinicians with decision making in the allocation of thromboprophylaxis. This review provides an overview of current validated risk assessment tools for atrial fibrillation and emphasizes the importance of tailoring individual risk and(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a public health priority. Its age-standardized prevalence has increased over the past decade. A major challenge for the management of CHF is to promote long-term adherence to self-care behaviors without overtaxing available health care resources. Counseling by multidisciplinary health care teams helps to improve(More)
BACKGROUND Heart failure (HF) is common, and it is associated with high rates of hospital readmission and mortality. It is generally assumed that appropriate self-care can improve outcomes in patients with HF, but patient adherence to many self-care behaviors is poor. OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to develop and test an intervention to increase(More)
BACKGROUND Patients' knowledge of their atrial fibrillation (AF) and anticoagulation therapy are determinants of the efficacy of thromboprophylaxis. Nurses may be well placed to provide counselling and education to patients on all aspects of anticoagulation, including self-management. It is important that nurses are well informed to provide optimal(More)
BACKGROUND Self-management education for cardiopulmonary diseases is primarily provided through time-limited, face-to-face programs, with access limited to a small percentage of patients. Telecommunication tools will increasingly be an important component of future health care delivery. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe the patterns of(More)

The context tree weighting method (CTW) is a statistics–based universal date compression algorithm that is capable of achieving superior performance compared to Lempel– Ziv based algorithms [1], [2]. Motivated by this fact, we investigate the usability of CTW for applications involving content recognition. Recently, various authors have explored the(More)
