The objectives of this retrospective case-control study were to identify risk factors of falls in geriatric-psychiatric inpatients and develop a screening tool to accurately predict falls. The study sample consisted of 225 geriatric-psychiatric inpatients at a Midwestern referral facility. The sample included 136 inpatients who fell and a random stratified(More)
OBJECTIVE Tumor angiogenesis is a highly regulated process under the influence of the host microenvironment and mediators. Studies of breast cancer and, more recently, ovarian and cervical cancer, demonstrate that neovascularization correlates with the likelihood of metastasis and recurrence. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), an important regulator(More)
This study examined relationships between emotional adjustment and a number of coping styles and strategies in people with cancer. Two-hundred eighty-three adults completed measures of positive and negative emotions, subjective ratings of cancer-related symptoms and functional impairment, coping strategies, hope, benefit finding, emotional(More)
Pursed lips breathing (PLB) is used by a proportion of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to alleviate dyspnea. It is also commonly used in pulmonary rehabilitation. Data to support its use in patients who do not spontaneously adopt PLB are limited. We performed this study to assess the acute effects of PLB on exercise capacity in(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this project was to develop a biomechanically based quantification of the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) using data derived from the accelerometer and gyroscope of a mobile tablet device. METHODS Thirty-two healthy young adults completed the BESS while an iPad was positioned at the sacrum. Data from the iPad were compared to(More)
Introduction. Based on anecdotal reports of improved olfaction following aerobic exercise, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of an 8-week aerobic exercise program on olfaction function in individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD). Methods. Thirty-eight participants with idiopathic PD were randomized to either an aerobic exercise group (n =(More)
e congratulate Morrow et al. (1) for their interesting study on the effects f ranolazine in patients with non–ST-segment elevation myocardial nfarction. Ranolazine reduced the composite primary end point of ardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, and recurrent ischemia in atients with B-type natriuretic peptide 80 pg/ml. Interestingly, there as a(More)
BACKGROUND Postural instability is a hallmark of Parkinson's disease. Objective metrics to characterize postural stability are necessary for the development of treatment algorithms to aid in the clinical setting. OBJECTIVE The aim of this project was to validate a mobile device platform and resultant three-dimensional balance metric that characterizes(More)
AIMS To assess the longitudinal accumulation of diabetes-related complications and the impact of glycemic control on the diabetes complications severity index (DCSI) score in people with newly-diagnosed type 2 diabetes (T2D). METHODS A retrospective cohort study was conducted using electronic health records (EHR) from a large integrated healthcare system.(More)
OBJECTIVE To understand how two types of aerobic exercise affect upper-extremity motor recovery post-stroke. Our aims were to (1) evaluate the feasibility of having people who had a stroke complete an aerobic exercise intervention and (2) determine whether forced or voluntary exercise differentially facilitates upper-extremity recovery when paired with task(More)
