OBJECTIVE: To observe the clinical effects of myopia in children treated with abdominal acupuncture. METHODS: Ninety children with myopia were randomly divided into an abdominal acupuncture group (45 cases with 90 ill eyes) and an auricular point group(45 cases with 90 ill eyes). In the abdominal acupuncture group, Zhongwan (CV 12), Shangqu(KI 17), Xiawan(CV 10), Tianshu(ST 25), Qihai(CV 6), Guanyuan(CV 4) were treated with tapping method. The needles were not retained and down to the lower in accordance with the order from Zhongwan (CV 12) to Guanyuan(CV 4) for 5 min,and the erubescence skin without blood was proper...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To present the effect of negative energy balance on postprandial triacylglycerol concentrations (pTAG), an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease. RECENT FINDINGS: Aerobic exercise reduces pTAG; however, recent findings confirm that this effect is only evident with an accompanying energy deficit. Moreover, a recent study showed that acute diet-induced energy deficit also reduces pTAG. The extent of energy deficit required to significantly attenuate pTAG depends on the type of given meal, the type of deficit (aerobic/resistance exercise, diet, or combination of diet and exercise), and patients' health status...

BACKGROUND: Implementation of a functional and well managed referral system leads to good health care quality. Referral systems face many challenges for effective functioning as a result of improper documentation of referral letters, poor feedback, and insufficient supply of referral slips and lack of communication. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to assess information use in patient's referral system, current referral process, and problems associated with documentation at TASH...

According to "The standards for biological evaluation of bio-materials and bio-products abbreviated to STANDARDS" newly set by the Ministry of Health, PRC, 5 observation indexes were selected to evaluate systematically the biocompatibility and toxicology of China-made hydroxyapatite, which is clinicall used. The results revealed no effects of allergy, mutation and hemoclasis reaction except mild cytotoxicity. These indicate that the China-made hydroxyapatite meets the demand of STANDADS and thus may be clinically with safety...

Providing nutritional support has become a standard component of managing seriously ill patients. While many studies have documented that providing nutrition support can change nutritional outcomes (amino acid profile, weight gain, nitrogen balance, etc.), there are limited da ta that demonstrate that nutrition support actually influences clinicall y important endpoints. The purpose of this paper is to systematically r eview and critically appraise the literature to examine the relationship between nutritional support and morbidity and mortality in the seriously ill patient...

In an effort to develop referral criteria for the ordering of abdominal radiographs for patients presenting with abdominal symptoms, we prospectively studied the relation between clinical data and radiographic abnormalities. Of 1780 examinations, 179 (10.0%) showed some radiographic abnormality. If abdominal radiographs would have been limited to those patients who had moderate or severe abdominal tenderness, or to patients with a high clinical suspicion of bowel obstruction, renal or ureteral calculi, trauma, ischemia, or gallbladder disease, regardless of the degree of tenderness, 956 (53...

A clinico-populational study of the functional status of the vegetative nervous system in 5291 children of the puberal age made it possible, along with the so-called subclinical vegetative lability (a physiological phasic state of the neurovegetative apparatuses during puberty), to identify in 43.9% of cases clinicall manifestations of vegetative disregulation: the syndrome of clinically demonstrable vegetative lability and different syndromes of vegetative dysfunction. The frequency of vegetative disorders was correlated with sex and urban or rural living conditions of patients whereas their intensity largely depended on the level of functional activity of neuroendocrine apparatuses in the period of puberty...

Seventy-four consecutive patients with angina undergoing single-lesion percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty were evaluated with high-dose (up to 0.84 mg/kg during 10 minutes) dipyridamole echocardiography test (DET) before angioplasty and when possible, afterward. Angioplasty was clinically or angiographically successful in 63 patients and unsuccessful in 11. Before the procedure, 69 patients had a positive DET. Of these 69 patients, six with clinicall unsuccessful angioplasty had a dipyridamole time (i...

The need to synthesize clinical and empirical considerations in naturalistic studies of psychologically oriented alcoholism treatment is discussed. Well done naturalistic studies are viewed as a necessary complement to more traditional controlled studies of treatment in order to maintain an interface of clinicall reality with scientific respectability. A general clinical framework and scientific model for naturalistic study are proposed by which scientific and clinical considerations may be reconciled.

Although clinicall undesirable, the fortuitous pharmacologic interactions between local anesthetic agents and analeptic drugs may be protective when large doses of both agents are used. Mice pretreated with procaine, lidocaine, and tetracaine had a lower incidence of seizures when convulsive doses of either nikethamide or doxapram hydrochloride were given intraperitoneally. Mortality was also decreased in the groups given nikethamide and was zero in the animals treated with doxapram. All animals treated with pentylenetetrazol convulsed and only lidocaine (also used as an anticonvulsant) was able to reduce mortality in this group...
