The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of stress management training on quality of life, functional capacity, and heart rate variability in elderly patients with New York Heart Association class I-III congestive heart failure (CHF). While substantial research exists on stress management training for patients with coronary heart disease, there(More)
OBJECTIVES This study attempted to determine whether an intensive multifactor risk reduction program conducted over 4 years would reduce the rate of development of new coronary artery lesions. BACKGROUND Recent angiographic trials have generally demonstrated that normalization of plasma lipoprotein profiles reduces the rate of progression of established(More)
BACKGROUND RESULTS are reported for the first year of one facet of an ongoing multisite clinical investigation. In this article, one subpopulations of subjects wearing soft contact lenses on a daily disposable wear schedule (DDW is compared to a second subpopulation wearing lenses on a conventional daily wear (CDW) basis. METHODS All subjects recruited(More)
PURPOSE To determine the clinical performance of daily disposable contact lens wear compared to conventional daily wear contact lenses and frequent replacement contact lenses. METHODS This 3-year prospective study was conducted in 12 U.S. practices. Of 338 eligible subjects enrolled (126 conventional daily wear, 144 frequent replacement, and 68 daily(More)
PURPOSE Lid architecture, lid tension, blink action, and blink rate may all influence rigid lens centration and stability. The aims of this study were to assess the nature of the relationship between lid geometry and lens position and to examine the influence of lens-lid interactions on the association between lens position and lens center of gravity and(More)
Various membrane materials have been attached to oxygen sensors during measurement of corneal oxygen uptake. Differences in the oxygen solubility characteristics of these membranes directly affect resulting flux values. Human corneal epithelial oxygen uptake values were obtained using an oxygen sensor in conjunction with polyethylene, Teflon, and(More)
Observed differences in corneal response to contact lens wear have been attributed to variations in individual corneal oxygen requirements. Anterior corneal oxygen flux was measured on 100 human eyes using a polarographic oxygen sensor to determine if differences could be measured among subjects. A distribution in corneal epithelial oxygen use was found to(More)
Cup/disk (C/D) ratio estimation is frequently used to evaluate cupping within the optic nerve head. Two components are involved in the determination of this value: (1) the cup and disk margin determination, and subsequently (2) the magnitude estimation of the cup size relative to the disk size. This study investigated the magnitude estimation component by(More)
The primary objective of this supplement is to provide eye care practitioners (ECPs) with the latest research and experience on topics related to contact lens use and patient eye health. This section examines a variety of topics, including the challenges of keeping abreast of the scientific literature, recognizing data that are borne from well-designed(More)
