Several animal models of atrial fibrillation (AF) have been developed that demonstrate either atrial structural remodeling or atrial electrical remodeling, but the characteristics and spatiotemporal organization of the AF between the models have not been compared. Thirty-nine dogs were divided into five groups: rapid atrial pacing (RAP), chronic mitral(More)
Atrial conduction properties have been shown to differ among animal atrial fibrillation (AF) models of rapid atrial pacing (RAP), chronic mitral regurgitation (MR), and control. We hypothesized that these conduction differences would continue with the onset of AF, which would affect AF spatiotemporal organization, resulting in model-specific characteristics(More)
In summary, the medical care system is undergoing the most widespread and significant changes in a generation. Individual hospitals, the basic delivery units of the past, may fast be disappearing as mergers, acquisitions, and a variety of multi-institutional arrangements become the dominant form and as a host of free-standing medical enterprises spread out(More)
BACKGROUND Much of the research performed studying the mechanism of ventricular fibrillation (VF) has been in normal ventricles rather than under a pathological condition predisposing to VF. We hypothesized that different ventricular substrates would alter the mechanism and characteristics of VF. METHODS AND RESULTS Three groups of dogs were studied: (1)(More)
Head impact research involving accelerometer based sensors in sports helmets has been well documented over the past decade; however, the maximum number of players involved in the largest continuous study was 314 over 3 years. Practical methods for using accelerometer arrays present significant power management issues and a requirement for high resolution(More)
The purpose of this study was to document differences in perceived skating characteristics resulting from three unique cross sectional skate blade profiles. Sixteen (n=16) University level hockey players were used in this double blind study looking at the perceived performance differences of four different skate blade profiles. No significant differences(More)
Athletic participation after injury may resume when cleared by a physician familiar with hand injuries. It is the role of the athletic trainer or therapist to implement appropriate rehabilitative measures and apply a protective device to lessen the chance of re-injury or delayed healing. The trainer must also educate coaches, athletes, and parents that hand(More)
