OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to use the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) tool to analyze the technique of secretion suctioning on patients with an endotracheal tube who were admitted into an intensive care unit. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Brainstorming was carried out within the service to determine the potential errors most frequent in the process. After this, the FMEA was applied, including its stages, prioritizing risk in accordance with the risk prioritization number (RPN), selecting improvement actions in which they have an RPN of more than 300...

BACKGROUND: Pyogenic spondylodiscitis is the infectious process that affects the vertebral body and the intervertebral disc. It has an incidence between 2 and 7%. To prescribe antibiotic treatment, it is required to identify the causative organism on the basis of the epidemiology of the etiologic agent, as well as the ability of the antibiotic to penetrate the bone tissue and the intervertebral disc. The objective was to identify the level of evidence and the grade of recommendation for the empiric initial treatment...

Treatment for mitochondrial dysfunction is typically guided by expert opinion with a paucity of empirical evidence of the effect of treatment on mitochondrial activity. We examined citrate synthase and Complex I and IV activities using a validated buccal swab method in 127 children with autism spectrum disorder with and without mitochondrial disease, a portion of which were on common mitochondrial supplements. Mixed-model linear regression determined whether specific supplements altered the absolute mitochondrial activity as well as the relationship between the activities of mitochondrial components...

Completely open systems can exchange heat, work, and matter with the environment. While energy, volume, and number of particles fluctuate under completely open conditions, the equilibrium states of the system, if they exist, can be specified using the temperature, pressure, and chemical potential as control parameters. The unconstrained ensemble is the statistical ensemble describing completely open systems and the replica energy is the appropriate free energy for these control parameters from which the thermodynamics must be derived...

OBJECTIVES: The worldwide spread of Parkinson's disease (PD) calls for sensitive and specific measures enabling its early (or, ideally, preclinical) detection. Here, we use language measures revealing deficits in PD to explore whether similar disturbances are present in asymptomatic individuals at risk for the disease. METHODS: We administered executive, semantic, verb-production, and syntactic tasks to sporadic PD patients, genetic PD patients with PARK2 (parkin) or LRRK2 (dardarin) mutation, asymptomatic first-degree relatives of the latter with similar mutations, and socio-demographically matched controls...

Functioning of the glymphatic system, a network of paravascular tunnels through which cortical interstitial solutes are cleared from the brain, has recently been linked to sleep and traumatic brain injury, both of which can affect the progression of migraine. This led us to investigate the connection between migraine and the glymphatic system. Taking advantage of a novel in vivo method we developed to visualize the PVS in naïve uninjected mice using 2-photon microscopy, we show that a single wave of cortical spreading depression (CSD), an animal model of migraine aura, induces a rapid and nearly complete closure of the paravascular space (PVS) around surface as well as penetrating cortical arteries and veins lasting several minutes, and gradually recovering over 30 min...

We have studied in HeLa cells the molecular nature of the 2-APB induced ER Ca(2+) leak using synthetic Ca(2+) indicators that report changes in both the cytoplasmic ([Ca(2+)]i) and the luminal ER ([Ca(2+)]ER) Ca(2+) concentrations. We have tested the hypothesis that Orai channels participate in the 2-APB-induced ER Ca(2+) leak that was characterized in the companion paper. The expression of the dominant negative Orai1 E106A mutant, which has been reported to block the activity of all three types of Orai channels, inhibited the effect of 2-APB on the [Ca(2+)]ER but did not decrease the ER Ca(2+) leak after thapsigargin (TG)...

New stilbenoid and thiophenic compounds terminally functionalized with donor-donor, acceptor-acceptor or donor-acceptor moieties and possessing a central [2.2]paracyclophane unit have been prepared and their properties interpreted in terms of through-bond and through space π-electron delocalization (i.e., π-conjugations). Based on photophysical data, their excited state properties have been described with a focus on the participation of the central [2.2]paracyclophane in competition with through-bond conjugation in the side arms...

Direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs) are highly effective and well tolerated in patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, including those with compensated cirrhosis. However, fewer data are available in patients with more advanced liver disease. Our retrospective, non-interventional, national, multi-center study in patients from the Spanish Hepa-C registry investigated the effectiveness and safety of interferon-free DAA regimens in patients with advanced liver disease, including those with decompensated cirrhosis, in routine practice (all currently approved regimens were registered)...

INTRODUCTION: Calcium (Ca(2+)) leak during cardiac diastole is chiefly mediated by intracellular Ca(2+) channel/Ryanodine Receptors. Increased diastolic Ca(2+) leak has been proposed as the mechanism underlying the appearance of hereditary arrhythmias. However, little is known about alterations in diastolic Ca(2+) leak and the specific roles played by key intracellular Ca(2+)-handling proteins in hyperthyroidism, a known arrhythmogenic condition. AIM: We sought to determine whether there were modifications in diastolic Ca(2+) leak, based on the recording of Ca(2+) sparks and Ca(2+) waves; we also investigated changes in the expression and activity of key Ca(2+) handling proteins, including ryanodine receptors, Sarco-Endoplasmic Reticulum Ca(2+) ATPase pump and calsequestrin in isolated left-ventricular cardiomyocytes isolated from hyperthyroid rats...

The ideotype is a theoretical model of an archetypal cultivated plant. Recent progress in genome editing is aiding the pursuit of this ideal in crop breeding. Breeding is relatively straightforward when the traits in question are monogenic in nature and show Mendelian inheritance. Conversely, traits with a diffuse, polygenic basis such as abiotic stress resistance are more difficult to harness. In recent years, many genes have been identified that are important for plant domestication and act by increasing yield, grain or fruit size or altering plant architecture...

Quantum dots (QDs) have special optical, surface, and electronic properties that make them useful for electrochemical applications. In this work, the electrochemical behavior of copper in ammonia medium is described using bare screen-printed carbon electrodes and the same modified with CdSe/ZnS QDs. At the bare electrodes, the electrogenerated Cu(i) and Cu(0) species are oxidized by dissolved oxygen in a fast coupled chemical reaction, while at the QDs-modified electrode, the re-oxidation of Cu(i) and Cu(0) species can be observed, which indicates that they are stabilized by the nanocrystals present on the electrode surface...

The purpose of this study was to analyze the differences in coping strategies employed by liver transplant recipients and their family members according to patient posttraumatic growth. Two matched groups of 214 liver transplant recipients and 214 family members were selected. The Posttraumatic Growth Inventory and Brief COPE were used. The most relevant results were: (1) Interactive effects in active coping, support (instrumental and emotional) and acceptance strategies, which were all used more by patients with higher growth levels, while their family members showed no differences in use of these strategies by patient growth level...

BACKGROUND: Epigenetic changes refer to any heritable modification in gene expression independent of alterations in the DNA sequence. Currently, it is well established that epigenetics represents a crucial player for tumor development. Nevertheless, the epigenetic mechanisms involved in the development and progression of salivary gland tumors (SGTs) remain poorly understood. METHODS: In the present study, we analyzed the pattern of acetyl-histone H3 (lys9) expression in benign and malignant SGTs and further correlate our results with tumors' proliferative activity and clinical outcomes...
