SETTING Three intensive care units of a tertiary care medical center. PATIENTS We used prospectively collected information from the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation III database(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of the C-nociceptive nerve fibers in nerve axon reflex-related vasodilation. METHODS Skin vascular reactivity, in response to iontophoresis of acetylcholine and sodium nitroprusside, was evaluated at both the forearm and the foot levels in 13 diabetic neuropathic (DN),11 nonneuropathic (D), and 9 healthy control (C)(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the vasodilation induced by topical application of methyl nicotinate (MN) and to compare it with the vasodilatory response to acetylcholine (ACh) and sodium nitroprusside (SNP) in healthy subjects and diabetic neuropathic patients. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Ten diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy (DN) and 10 age- and(More)
The researchers developed a diabetes care quality summary score (DCQSS) that weights blood pressure, tobacco use, glucose information, and lipid information by cost-effectiveness for improving cardiovascular outcomes. They compared the DCQSS to selected Diabetes Quality Improvement Project (DQIP) measures of care in an urban Medicaid healthcare maintenance(More)
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for the prevention of catheter-related bloodstream infections suggest using "a subclavian site, rather than an internal jugular or a femoral site, in adult patients."
