INTRODUCTION: Breathlessness is a prevalent and distressing symptom in intensive care, underestimated by nurses and physicians. Therefore, to develop a more comprehensive understanding of this problem, the study had two aims: to compare patients' self-reported scores of breathlessness obtained during mechanical ventilation (MV) with experiences of breathlessness later recalled by patients and: to explore the lived experience of breathing during and after MV. METHOD: A qualitatively driven sequential mixed method design combining prospective observational breathlessness data at the end of a spontaneous breathing trial (SBT) and follow up data from 11 post-discharge interviews...

We sought to identify a simple bedside method to predict successful extubation outcomes that might be used during rounds. We hypothesized that a direct 2-minute unassisted breathing evaluation (DTUBE) could replace a longer spontaneous breathing trial (SBT). Data were prospectively collected on all patients endotracheally intubated for >48 hours nearing extubation in a tertiary center's mixed trauma/surgical intensive care unit from August 2012 to August 2013. The SBT was performed for at least 30 minutes at 40 per cent FiO2, PEEP 5, and PS 8...

Behavioral weight loss (BWL) treatments result in suboptimal weight losses for many individuals. Impulsivity appears to be a maintenance factor of obesity, yet few studies have examined impulsivity as a predictor of outcomes from BWL. We examined specific facets of impulsivity (inhibitory control and delay discounting) as moderators of outcome in BWL. Overweight adults (n = 190) were randomized to standard behavioral treatment (SBT) or acceptance-based behavioral treatment (ABT). We hypothesized that impulsivity would be inversely associated with weight loss, and that the association between impulsivity and outcome would be attenuated in the ABT condition...

Study Design Prospective cohort study. Background Optimal management of patients with low back pain (LBP) relies on accurate prognosis of future clinical outcomes. The STarT Back Screening Tool (SBT), a prognostic index developed and validated in the primary care setting, has three scoring measures: SBT overall, psychosocial, and categorical scores. Objective Our study aimed to compare the predictive validity of three SBT measures with future pain intensity in patients receiving physical therapy for LBP. Methods Two-hundred-seven patients with LBP receiving physical therapy completed the SBT at initial (baseline) evaluation and were evaluated 12 weeks later for their pain intensity...

The propeptides of subtilisin-like serine proteinases (SBTs) serve dual functions as intramolecular chaperones that are required for enzyme folding and as inhibitors of the mature proteases. SBT propeptides are homologous to the I9 family of protease inhibitors that have only been described in fungi. Here we report the identification and characterization of Subtilisin Propeptide-Like Inhibitor 1 (SPI-1) from Arabidopsis thaliana. Sequence similarity and the shared β-α-β-β-α-β core structure identified SPI-1 as a member of the I9 inhibitor family, and as the first independent I9 inhibitor in higher eukaryotes...

Hippophae rhamnoides L., also known as sea buckthorn (SBT), possesses a wide range of biological and pharmacological activities. However, the underlying mechanism is largely unknown. The present study examined whether SBT leaf extract could inhibit proliferation and promote apoptosis of rat glioma C6 cells. The results revealed that the treatment with SBT leaf extract inhibited proliferation of rat C6 glioma cells in a dose-dependent manner. SBT-induced reduction of C6 glioma cell proliferation and viability was accompanied by a decrease in production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are critical for the proliferation of tumor cells...
