OBJECTIVE Our objective was to study the attitudes of Canadian physicians toward product presentations by pharmaceutical representatives (PRs), the use of inducements by the pharmaceutical industry, and methods to improve the quality of prescribing information provided to physicians. DESIGN We used a mailed survey. PARTICIPANTS A random sample of 550(More)
BACKGROUND Functional decline and frailty are common in community dwelling older adults, increasing the risk of adverse outcomes. Given this, we investigated the prevalence of frailty-associated risk factors and their distribution according to the severity of perceived risk in a cohort of community dwelling older adults, using the Risk Instrument for(More)
The Strategic Implementation Plan of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) proposed six Action Groups. After almost three years of activity, many achievements have been obtained through commitments or collaborative work of the Action Groups. However, they have often worked in silos and, consequently, synergies between(More)
Despite the high mortality (greater than 30%) associated with hypotension complicating pulmonary embolism, previous studies have not systematically investigated how best to treat shock resulting from pulmonary embolism. In 24 dogs, we measured relevant hemodynamic parameters before and after shock was produced by intravenously injected autologous blood(More)
The effects of treatment of oleic acid pulmonary edema with dobutamine, furosemide, and hydralazine on cardiopulmonary function in 24 dogs were investigated. Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) was adjusted to approximately 7 mm Hg; 45 min after oleic acid (0.08 ml/kg), dogs were randomly divided into a control group, in which PCWP was maintained at(More)
Health care providers in three nursing homes in Ontario were surveyed to determine educational needs, barriers to meeting these needs, and the preferred format for education. Of the 415 health care providers asked to participate, 225 completed the questionnaire. Need was expressed for the majority of the 35 educational topics identified, including the role(More)

METHODS AND(More)
We investigated cardiopulmonary effects of dopamine in patients with acute respiratory failure. Specifically, we wished to test the hypothesis that left ventricular filling pressure (Pcwp) would increase when cardiac output (CO) increased with dopamine. Dopamine (range, 5.5 to 20 micrograms/kg/min) increased blood pressure (BP) (p less than 0.001) Pcwp, CO,(More)
