Context: According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, nearly 1.5 million people spend at least 1 night in an emergency shelter or transitional housing each year, and more than 500,000 people are homeless on a given night in the United States. To our knowledge, limited data exist regarding the prevalence of homelessness in ED patients by gender (male, female, and transgender). Objective: To assess the prevalence of homelessness by gender in 3 EDs in Pennsylvania...

Concentrations of nine organophosphate flame retardants (OPFRs) and eight polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) were measured in samples of indoor dust (n = 85) and air (n = 45) from Australian houses, offices, hotels, and transportation (buses, trains, and aircraft). All target compounds were detected in indoor dust and air samples. Median ∑9 OPFRs concentrations were 40 μg/g in dust and 44 ng/m3 in indoor air, while median ∑8 PBDEs concentrations were 2.1 μg/g and 0.049 ng/m3 . Concentrations of FRs were higher in rooms that contained carpet, air conditioners, and various electronic items...

BACKGROUND: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS), an inflammatory arthritis that affects the axial skeleton, predisposes patients with severe disease to falls and spinal fractures. Advanced imaging has improved the process of fracture detection. In spite of increased knowledge about early diagnosis and management of AS, little attention is being paid to the environmental hazards that pose a risk for patient outcome. OBJECTIVES: To identify risk factors for falls and fractures and evaluate imaging modalities in the detection of fractures in AS patients...

In this column, the author presents information from prominent Lamaze childbirth educators and from the literature to describe various options that educators can share with expectant parents regarding the use of pain relief medications during labor and birth. Ann Tumblin teaches about epidurals in a hospital class without losing sight of evidence-based practices that support normal birth. Jessica English focuses her classes on the natural processes of giving birth and spends only a little time presenting information about pain medications...

We believe that this is the first translation into English of the first description, in French, of a disease previously unknown. JL Riopelle and JP Thériault, both pathologists, reviewed clinical and pathologic findings in six young patients with soft tissue tumors, and contributed autopsy information on four of the patients. Only one patient was initially correctly diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma; the other five initially had alternative diagnoses. Because of space limitations, we have condensed the clinical and pathologic details of their 23-page, approximately 9-font article into two Tables, but have otherwise translated the complete text of this seminal paper...

BACKGROUND: Patients are increasingly rating their family physicians on the Internet in the same way as they might rate a hotel on TripAdvisor or a seller on eBay, despite physicians' concerns about this process. OBJECTIVE: This study aims to examine the usage of NHS Choices, a government website that encourages patients to rate the quality of family practices in England, and associations between web-based patient ratings and conventional measures of patient experience and clinical quality in primary care...

Community health psychology provides a framework for local citizens themselves to systematically affect change in health and social inequalities, particularly through Participatory Action Research (PAR). The Cambodian NGO SiRCHESI launched a 24-month Hotel Apprenticeship Program (HAP) in 2006 to provide literacy, English, social skills, health education, hotel skills-training, work experience and a living wage to women formerly selling beer in restaurants; there they had faced workplace risks including HIV/AIDS, alcohol overuse, violence and sexual coercion...

Data were analyzed for all workers and by ethnicity, language, and immigrant status. RESULTS: Hispanic and English as second language (ESL) workers were more likely than their counterparts to report work-related pain and, along with immigrant workers, to miss work because of this pain...

BACKGROUND: Despite limited evidence evaluating early postnatal discharge, length of hospital stay has declined dramatically in Australia since the 1980s. The recent rising birth rate in Victoria, Australia has increased pressure on hospital beds, and many services have responded by discharging women earlier than planned, often with little preparation during pregnancy. We aimed to explore the views of women and their partners regarding a number of theoretical postnatal care 'packages' that could provide an alternative approach to early postnatal care...

How did Jung become deeply concerned with Asian religions and particularly with the Tibetan Buddhism of a Welshman from Trenton, New Jersey? Could that man be considered one of Jung's gurus? This essay begins six years after Jung, at twenty, was admitted to the medical school of Basel University and became a member of the Zofingiaverein, a student society. The next year he gave the first of a series of lectures on the interpretation of Christ as the model of the 'god-man', like the Apostle Paul, Confucius, Zoroaster and the Buddha, who was 'drummed into the Hindu boy'...

In his position as curator of the Cowlishaw collection of historical medical books in the Library of the College, Kenneth Russell prepared the definitive catalogue of the collection. This catalogue is comprehensive and for almost all entries there is an annotation that demonstrates his meticulous attention to detail and the love of the book collection that he managed to secure for the College. It is from this catalogue that I have chosen two books in particular that bring together two great surgeons of the turn of the 19th century...

Throughout the XIXth century and until 1945, bone surgery focused primarily on correcting deformities in children. The treatment of injury-related bone lesions in adults (compound fractures and dislocations) remained within the province of general surgeons until circa 1970. Lyons played a unique role in the XVIIIth and XIXth centuries, for three reasons. 1) The term "orthopedics" (which means "straight children", or "children to be made straight") was coined in 1743 by an 80-year-old inhabitant of the Saint Nizier parish in Lyons, Nicolas Andry or André, a former dean of the Paris School of Medicine...

The Dogmatism Scale and 13 personality tests measuring authoritarianism, rigidity, neuroticism,and extremeness were administered to 250 male and female students at the University of Cairo, Egypt, to investigate whether there are any differences in dogmatism and its underlying personality characteristics associated with the Egyptian culture in comparison with the American and English cultures. The Egyptian mean dogmatism score was larger than the comparable means obtained for American and English college students (p less than ...
