Following a hypothesis raised by M. and J. Neitz, Seattle, we have tested whether the abundance and the ratio of Long wavelength-sensitive (L) to Middle wavelength-sensitive (M) cones may affect eye size and development of myopia in the chicken. Fourteen chickens were treated with frosted plastic diffusers in front of one eye on day 10 post-hatching for a period of 7 days to induce deprivation myopia. Ocular dimensions were measured by A-scan ultrasonography at the beginning and at the end of the treatment and development of refractive state was tracked using infrared photorefraction...

Teresa A O'Sullivan, Erin Sy
Objective. To identify common components of inpatient general medicine advanced pharmacy practice experiences (APPEs) across sites, determine which components were important to standardize, and distinguish a benchmark of each component that would indicate standardization. Methods. In-depth interviews about the student experience were conducted with two students and one or more preceptors at each of 12 inpatient general medicine sites in the greater Seattle metropolitan area. Data from transcribed interviews were analyzed, then collapsed into a single spreadsheet for comparison...

Importance: Facial vascular anomalies are surgical challenges due to their vascularity and facial nerve distortion. To assist facial vascular anomaly surgical treatment, presurgical percutaneous facial nerve stimulation and recording of compound motor action potentials can be used to map the facial nerve branches. During surgery, the nerve map and continuous intraoperative motor end plate potential monitoring can be used to reduce nerve injury. Objective: To investigate if preoperative facial nerve mapping (FNM) is associated with intraoperative facial nerve injury risk and safe surgical approach options compared with standard nerve integrity monitoring (NIM)...

BACKGROUND: Almost one million prematurely born infants die annually from respiratory insufficiency, predominantly in countries with limited access to respiratory support for neonates. The primary hypothesis tested in the present study was that a modified device for bubble nasal continuous positive airway pressure (Bn-CPAP) would provide lower work of spontaneous breathing, estimated by esophageal pressure-rate products. METHODS: Infants born <32 weeks gestation and stable on Bn-CPAP with FiO2 <0...

Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) fluxes from contaminated sediments can be caused by mechanisms including diffusion, bioirrigation, and resuspension, but it is often unclear which mechanisms are important. In the Lower Duwamish Waterway (Seattle, Washington), the presence of abundant benthic macrofauna suggests that porewater bioirrigation may be an important mechanism for PCB transport from the bed into the overlying water column. In this field study, the fluxes of PCBs due to bioirrigation were quantified by using (a) polyethylene (PE) samplers to quantify in situ and ex situ (i...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Individuals receiving in-center hemodialysis experience a high symptom burden that detrimentally affects their quality of life. There are few evidence-based interventions for symptom relief in this population. To stimulate innovation in symptom management, data on patient symptom prioritization and treatment preferences are needed. We undertook this study to ( 1 ) identify patient-prioritized symptoms for the development of symptom relief therapies and ( 2 ) elicit preferences for treatments among individuals receiving hemodialysis...

BACKGROUND: Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) assessment is an important health outcome for measuring the efficacy of treatments and interventions for coronary artery disease (CAD). HRQOL is known to improve over the first year after interventions for CAD, but there is limited knowledge of the changes in HRQOL beyond 1 year. We investigated heterogeneity in long-term trajectories of HRQOL in patients with CAD. METHODS AND RESULTS: Data were obtained from 6226 patients identified from the Alberta Provincial Project for Outcome Assessment in Coronary Heart Disease with at least 1-vessel CAD who underwent their first catheterization between 2006 and 2009...
