Cosleeping is the normative practice in many of the world's societies but is not endorsed by the Consumer Products Safety Commission or by the American Academy of Pediatrics. A survey was performed on 101 caregivers in an urban setting, designed to assess the prevalence of cosleeping and parental attitudes for this practice. Cosleeping rate was 88% with(More)
The electrophysiologic effects of N-acetylprocainamide (NAPA), a metabolite of procainamide reported to exert significant Class III antiarrhythmic effects in the adult heart, were evaluated in 12 neonatal mongrel canines (ages 7-14 days). Following transvascular placement of quadripolar electrical catheters in the right atrium and ventricle, and a tripolar(More)
Using the Self-Assessment of Perceived Level of Cultural Competence (SAPLCC) questionnaire, frequencies, means, and ANOVAS were determined to create medical and pharmacy student profiles of cultural competence. Profiles were used to identify needs for training and underscore critical issues that should be given priority in the curriculum. Significant(More)
According to mathematical models of antiarrhythmic drug-receptor interactions, lidocaine binds preferentially to the sodium channel when the membrane is depolarized (i.e., the "inactivated" channel state). Therefore, the effect of lidocaine on conduction should be greater when the action potential duration is prolonged. To test this prediction in vivo we(More)
Much nonspecific activity in enzyme immunoassay is due to reactions between anti-bovine antibodies which are commonly present in human serum samples and residual calf serum in viral antigens. Calf serum is used in cultured cells which are used to produce viral antigens. Addition of bovine proteins to serum samples to be tested for viral antibodies reduces(More)
