BACKGROUND: The effectiveness of Lean Thinking as a quality improvement method for health care has been contested due, in part, to our limited contextual understanding of how it affects the working conditions and clinical workflow of nurses and physicians. Although there are some initial indications, arising from prevalence surveys and interviews, that Lean may intensify work performed within medical environments, the evidence base still requires detailed descriptions of the changes that were actually introduced to individuals' clinical workflow and how these changes impacted health care professionals...

Animal models play important roles in investigating the pathobiology of cancer, identifying relevant pathways, and developing novel therapeutic tools. Despite rapid progress in the understanding of disease mechanisms and technological advancement in drug discovery, negative trial outcomes are the most frequent incidences during a Phase III trial. Skin cancer is a potential life-threatening disease in humans and might be medically futile when tumors metastasize. This explains the low success rate of melanoma therapy amongst other malignancies...

When life-threatening, critical events occur in the operating room, the fast-paced, high-distraction atmosphere often leaves little time to think or deliberate about management options. Success depends on applying a team approach to quickly implement well-rehearsed, systematic, evidence-based assessment and treatment protocols. Mobile devices offer resources for readily accessible, easily updatable information that can be invaluable during perioperative critical events. We developed a mobile device version of the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia 26 Pediatric Crisis paper checklists-the Pedi Crisis 2...

INTRODUCTION: The MINERVA trial established that atrial preventive pacing and atrial antitachycardia pacing (DDDRP) in combination with managed ventricular pacing (MVP) reduces progression to permanent atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with paroxysmal or persistent AF and bradycardia who need cardiac pacing, compared to standard dual-chamber pacing (DDDR). It was shown that AF-related health care utilization was significantly lower in the DDDRP + MVP group than in the control group...

Individuals with autism spectrum disorder and average IQ exhibit a widening discrepancy between lagging adaptive skills relative to their cognitive potential, but it is unknown when this discrepancy emerges in development. To address this important question, we measured adaptive and cognitive skills longitudinally, from 12-36 months, in 96 low-risk typically developing infants and 69 high-risk siblings of children with autism spectrum disorder who at 36 months were diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder ( N = 21), the broader autism phenotype ( N = 19), or showed no concerns (unaffected; N = 29)...

PURPOSE: Comparisons of the efficacy of dual- vs. single-chamber implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) in preventing inappropriate shocks have had contradictory results. We investigated whether dual-chamber devices have a lower risk of inappropriate shocks and the specific role of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) discriminators. METHODS: All heart failure (HF) patients without an indication for pacing and implanted with a prophylactic ICD were recruited from the nationwide multicenter UMBRELLA registry...

A 67-year-old man presented to the emergency department with sudden onset of severe presyncope. He reported that he had a permanent pacemaker implanted in 2006 following atrioventricular node ablation for persistent atrial fibrillation (AF). After suffering increasing shortness of breath, he underwent upgrade to cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) in 2016. He denied any recent falls, interventions or changes in medication. ECG monitoring showed AF with a broad ventricular escape rhythm at around 25 bpm with pauses of up to 3 s...

Many neurocognitive accounts of language processing presume that neural responses detected in grand mean analyses of cortical electrophysiological activity reflect the normative brain response in the population under investigation. However, emerging work now shows that individuals' brain responses can vary systematically in both the size and type of effect elicited. The present research therefore examined individual differences in neural activity elicited by grammatical agreement anomalies during language comprehension in a large cohort of highly literate, monolingual English speakers (N = 114), a population generally assumed to be relatively homogenous in terms of linguistic knowledge and processing...

Inspired by the adhesive proteins of mussels, polydopamine (pDA) has emerged as one of the most widely employed methods for functionalizing material surfaces, fueled in part by the versatility, simplicity, and spontaneity of pDA film deposition on most materials upon immersion in an alkaline aqueous solution of dopamine. However, the rapid adoption of pDA for surface modification over the last decade stands in stark contrast to the slow pace in understanding the composition of pDA. Numerous attempts to elucidate the formation mechanism and structure of this fascinating material have resulted in little consensus mainly due to the insoluble nature of pDA; which renders most conventional methods of polymer molecular weight characterization ineffective...

Hippocampal ripple oscillations likely support reactivation of memory traces that manifest themselves as temporally organized spiking of sparse neuronal ensembles. However, the network mechanisms concurring to achieve this function are largely unknown. We designed a multi-compartmental model of the CA3-CA1 subfields to generate biophysically realistic ripple dynamics from the cellular level to local field potentials. Simulations broadly parallel in vivo observations and support that ripples emerge from CA1 pyramidal spiking paced by recurrent inhibition...

Zinc has been described as the 'calcium of the twenty-first century'. Zinc-based degradable biomaterials have recently emerged thanks to their intrinsic physiological relevance, biocompatibility, biodegradability, and pro-regeneration properties. Zinc-based biomaterials mainly include: metallic zinc alloys, zinc ceramic nanomaterials, and zinc metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Metallic zinc implants degrade at a desirable rate, matching the healing pace of local tissues, and stimulating remodeling and formation of new tissues...

The incidence and severity of asthma preponderate in women versus men. Leukotrienes (LTs) are lipid mediators involved in asthma pathogenesis, and sex disparities in LT biosynthesis and anti-LT pharmacology in inflammation have recently emerged. Here, we report on sex dimorphism in LT production during allergen sensitization and its correlation to lung function. While high plasma levels of IgE, as sensitization index, were elevated in both sexes, LT levels increased only in lungs of female ovalbumin-sensitized BALB/c mice...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to evaluate the clinical and procedural characteristics impacting outcomes during implementation of a His bundle pacing (HBP) program in a real-world setting. BACKGROUND: Right ventricular pacing is associated with an elevated risk of heart failure, but device reprogramming and upgrades have significant challenges. HBP has emerged as an alternative and is reported to be highly successful in the hands of highly experienced centers. METHODS: All patients referred for permanent pacemaker implantation at the Valley Hospital (Ridgewood, New Jersey) between October 2015 and October 2017 were evaluated; a subset of 24% was selected for HBP...

His-bundle pacing has recently emerged as a means to maintain a physiological ventricular activation and eliminate the risk of pacing-induced myopathy associated with traditional right ventricular pacing. With His-bundle pacing, the exact stimulated structure and resulting excitation wavefront may be highly dependent on the pacing output, dimensions of the stimulatory electrodes, and orientation of the cathode and anode relative to the approximated conduction tissue and surrounding myocardium, owing to the juxtaposition of tissues with very different conduction properties...

BACKGROUND: The standard approach for urgent trans-venous temporary cardiac pacemaker (TVTP) implantation is fluoroscopy guidance. The delay in activation of the fluoroscopy-room and the transfer of unstable patients may be life-threatening. Echocardiography-guided TP implantation may increase the safety of the patients by obviating the need for in-hospital transfer. We examined the feasibility and safety of echocardiography-guided vs. fluoroscopy-guided TVTP implantation. METHODS: From January 2015 to September 2017 data for consecutive patients who needed emergent TVTP implantation were retrospectively reviewed...

The aim of this study was to explore the emergence of skilled behaviors, in the form of actions, cognitions and emotions, between professional state level cricket batters and their lesser skilled counterparts. Twenty-two male cricket batsmen ( n = 6 state level; n = 8 amateur grade club level, n = 8 junior state representative level) participated in a game scenario training session against right arm pace bowlers ( n = 6 amateur senior club). The batsmen were tasked with scoring as many runs as possible during a simulated limited-overs game...

Using an enactive approach to trail runners' activity, this study sought to identify and characterize runners' phenomenological gestalts, which are forms of experience that synthesize the heterogeneous sensorimotor, cognitive and emotional information that emerges in race situations. By an in-depth examination of their meaningful experiences, we were able to highlight the different typologies of interactions between bodily processes (e.g., sensations and pains), behaviors (e.g., actions and strategies), and environment (e...
