This study describes the incidence of workplace bullying among perioperative RNs, surgical technologists, and unlicensed perioperative personnel in two academic medical centers. The study sought to determine whether the demographic variables of gender, ethnicity, hospital, years of experience on the unit, years in the profession, and job title predict the(More)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of injury, disability, and death in the United States. Amantadine is an established dopamine agonist that supports neurological function. The purpose of this literature review was to determine whether amantadine improves cognitive function post-TBI. PubMed and CINAHL were used to search the literature for(More)
The endonucleases from Neurospora crassa and Saccharomyces cerevisiae are not closely related antigenically. They also differ with respect to their activity at pH 8, their degree of hydrophobicity, and their sensitivity to elevated temperatures. However, the two nucleases have similar specific activities, are inhibited by EDTA, and have nearly identical(More)
Lysobacter enzymogenes ATCC 29487 (UASM 495) produces an outer-membrane-associated phosphatase and an excreted phosphatase. The cell-associated enzyme was compared to phosphatases of nine other Gram-negative gliding bacteria and to that of Escherichia coli. The other three species of the genus Lysobacter also produce a particulate, cell-associated(More)
A turbidimetric esterase assay was developed using a Tween 20 solution in the presence of CaCl2 and Lysobacter enzymogenes esterase (EC 3.1.1.1) as the enzyme source. The reaction was followed by measuring the increase in the optical density at 500 nm (OD500) due to the hydrolytic release of the fatty acids from Tween 20 and their precipitation as the(More)
