Observations on animal and human health during the outbreak of Mycobacterium bovis in game farm wapiti in Alberta. (1/878)

This report describes and discusses the history, clinical, pathologic, epidemiologic, and human health aspects of an outbreak of Mycobacterium bovis infection in domestic wapiti in Alberta between 1990 and 1993, shortly after legislative changes allowing game farming. The extent and seriousness of the outbreak of M. bovis in wapiti in Alberta was not fully known at its onset. The clinical findings in the first recognized infected wapiti are presented and the postmortem records for the herd in which the animal resided are summarized. Epidemiologic findings from the subsequent field investigation are reviewed, the results of recognition and investigation of human exposure are updated, and recommendations for reduction of human exposure are presented.  (+info)

Is primary CNS lymphoma really becoming more common? A population-based study of incidence, clinicopathological features and outcomes in Alberta from 1975 to 1996. (2/878)

BACKGROUND: The incidence of primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL) is believed to be increasing in immunocompetent patients but this may not be universally true. The objective of this study was to determine in a population if the incidence of PCNSL is increasing, if the histologic subtypes are changing, and to describe the clinicopathologic and outcome characteristics of PCNSL. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We identified all Alberta residents with a histologic diagnosis of PCNSL from 1 January 1975 to 31 December 1996 using the Alberta Cancer Registry. Annual age-standardized incidence rates (ASIR), clinicopathologic and outcome characteristics were determined. RESULTS: There were 50 immunocompetent PCNSL patients; the median age was 64 and 30 were male. Their median survival was 10.15 months. Histology was available for review in 37 (74%) patients: 19 (51%) were diffuse large cell, 16 (43%) were immunoblastic and 2 (5%) were unclassifiable malignant lymphomas. The ASIR ranged from 0.178-1.631/10(6) and no change in ASIR was found (test for trend, P = 0.26) for gender or age. The ASIR of malignant gliomas did not change either but increased for all other non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (94.95-138.7610(6); test for trend, P = 0.0001) The number of brain biopsies increased from 1979-1985 (test for trend, P < 0.0001) but remained stable from 1986-1996 (test for trend, P = 0.99). CONCLUSIONS: Unlike several other populations, PCNSL is not becoming significantly more common in Alberta. If this difference is real (i.e., not due to differences in cancer registry coding practices etc.) comparisons between Albertans and other populations in whom the incidence is rising may provide clues regarding the etiology of PCNSL.  (+info)

Feasibility of direct discharge from the coronary/intermediate care unit after acute myocardial infarction. (3/878)

OBJECTIVES: This investigation was designed to determine the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of direct discharge from the coronary/intermediate care unit (CICU) in 497 consecutive patients with an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). BACKGROUND: Although patients with an AMI are traditionally treated in the CICU followed by a period on the medical ward, the latter phase can likely be incorporated within the CICU. METHODS: All patients were considered for direct discharge from the CICU with appropriate patient education. The 6-week postdischarge course was evaluated using a structured questionnaire by a telephone interview. RESULTS: There were 497 patients (men = 353; women = 144; age 63.5 +/- 0.6 years) in the study, with 29 in-hospital deaths and a further 11 deaths occurring within 6 weeks of discharge. The mode length of CICU stay was 4.0 days (mean 5.1 +/- 0.2 days): 1 to 2 (12%), 3 (19%), 4 (21%), 5 (14%), 6 to 7 (19%) and > or = 7 (15%) days, respectively with 87.2% discharged home directly. Of the 425 patients surveyed, 119 (28.0%) indicated that they had made unscheduled return visits (URV) to a hospital or physician's office: 10.6% to an emergency room, 9.4% to a physician's office and 8.0% readmitted to a hospital. Of these URV, only 14.3% occurred within 48 h of discharge. Compared to historical controls, the present management strategy resulted in a cost savings of Cdn. $4,044.01 per patient. CONCLUSIONS: Direct discharge from CICU is a feasible and safe strategy for the majority of patients that results in considerable savings.  (+info)

Survey of Fascioloides magna in farmed wapiti in Alberta. (4/878)

The formalin-ethyl acetate sedimentation procedure was used to detect ova of the giant liver fluke, Fascioloides magna, in feces of farmed wapiti in Alberta. Twenty (3.2%) of the 629 fecal samples examined contained ova of F. magna. Thirteen (33.3%) of the 39 farms surveyed had wapiti positive for F. magna. The presence of F. magna in farmed wapiti north of the North Saskatchewan River is confirmed, and 3 areas where the infection has become endemic are identified.  (+info)

Missed opportunities for prevention in general internal medicine. (5/878)

BACKGROUND: According to the Canadian Society of Internal Medicine, the Canadian general internist is in the ideal position to promote patient health through disease prevention. To explore the general internist's contribution to disease prevention, the authors quantified the extent to which opportunities for prevention were addressed by the general internal medicine (GIM) service in an acute care teaching hospital in Calgary. METHODS: The authors interviewed 100 adult patients before discharge from the hospital's GIM service between May 14, 1997, and Dec. 2, 1997. The number of potential opportunities for preventive intervention were identified for each patient from 10 possible interventions recommended by the Canadian Task Force on the Periodic Health Examination (now the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care): breast cancer screening, Papanicolaou smear for cervical cancer, counselling on menopausal hormone replacement therapy, digital rectal examination for prostate cancer, smoking cessation counselling, cholesterol measurement, therapy or monitoring for hypertension, influenza vaccination, pneumococcal vaccination and colorectal cancer screening. The authors determined which interventions the patient had undergone before the current admission to hospital and, using patient recall and postdischarge medical chart review, which opportunities for intervention were addressed by the GIM service during the current admission. An opportunity for preventive intervention was considered as addressed by the GIM service if it was performed during the current admission or if the general internist informed the patient or the patient's family physician of the need for such intervention in the near future. RESULTS: Among the 10 preventive interventions considered, a mean of 3.8 potential opportunities for prevention were identified for each patient. Of these, 46.5% had been addressed before the current admission, and 8.7% were addressed by the GIM service during the admission. Therefore, at the time of discharge, a mean of 55.2% of opportunities had been addressed. Among the opportunities not previously addressed, the GIM service most frequently addressed digital rectal examination for prostate cancer and cholesterol measurement. INTERPRETATION: General internists are discharging patients without sufficiently addressing opportunities for disease prevention. Preventive care protocols may be needed to limit the frequency of missed opportunities for prevention in patients admitted to tertiary care GIM services.  (+info)

The Calgary Biofilm Device: new technology for rapid determination of antibiotic susceptibilities of bacterial biofilms. (6/878)

Determination of the MIC, based on the activities of antibiotics against planktonic bacteria, is the standard assay for antibiotic susceptibility testing. Adherent bacterial populations (biofilms) present with an innate lack of antibiotic susceptibility not seen in the same bacteria grown as planktonic populations. The Calgary Biofilm Device (CBD) is described as a new technology for the rapid and reproducible assay of biofilm susceptibilities to antibiotics. The CBD produces 96 equivalent biofilms for the assay of antibiotic susceptibilities by the standard 96-well technology. Biofilm formation was followed by quantitative microbiology and scanning electron microscopy. Susceptibility to a standard group of antibiotics was determined for National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) reference strains: Escherichia coli ATCC 25922, Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853, and Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 29213. Growth curves demonstrated that biofilms of a predetermined size could be formed on the CBD at specific time points and, furthermore, that no significant difference (P > 0.1) was seen between biofilms formed on each of the 96 pegs. The antibiotic susceptibilities for planktonic populations obtained by the NCCLS method or from the CBD were similar. Minimal biofilm eradication concentrations, derived by using the CBD, demonstrated that for biofilms of the same organisms, 100 to 1,000 times the concentration of a certain antibiotic were often required for the antibiotic to be effective, while other antibiotics were found to be effective at the MICs. The CBD offers a new technology for the rational selection of antibiotics effective against microbial biofilms and for the screening of new effective antibiotic compounds.  (+info)

The prevalence of verotoxins, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Salmonella in the feces and rumen of cattle at processing. (7/878)

Fecal samples collected from cattle at processing during a 1-year period were tested for verotoxins (VT1, VT2), Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Salmonella. Verotoxins were detected in 42.6% (95% CI, 39.8% to 45.4%), E. coli O157:H7 in 7.5% (95% CI, 6.1% to 9.1%), and Salmonella in 0.08% (95% CI, 0.004% to 0.5%) of the fecal samples. In yearling cattle, the median within-lot prevalence (percentage of positive samples within a lot) was 40% (range, 0% to 100%) for verotoxins and 0% for E. coli O157:H7 (range, 0% to 100%) and Salmonella (range, 0% to 17%). One or more fecal samples were positive for verotoxins in 80.4% (95% CI, 72.8% to 86.4%) of the lots of yearling cattle, whereas E. coli O157:H7 were detected in 33.6% (95% CI, 26.0% to 42.0%) of the lots. In cull cows, the median within-lot prevalence was 50% (range, 0% to 100%) for verotoxins and 0% (range, 0% to 100%) for E. coli O157:H7 and Salmonella (range, 0% to 0%). Verotoxins were detected in one or more fecal samples from 78.0% (95% CI, 70.4% to 84.2%) of the lots of cull cows, whereas E. coli O157:H7 were detected in only 6.0% (95% CI, 3.0% to 11.4%) of the lots of cull cows. The prevalence of verotoxins in fecal samples was lower in yearling cattle than in cull cows, whereas the prevalence of E. coli O157:H7 in fecal samples was higher in yearling cattle than in cull cows. The prevalence of E. coli O157:H7 in fecal samples was highest in the summer months. Rumen fill, body condition score, sex, type of cattle (dairy, beef), and distance travelled to the plant were not associated with the fecal prevalence of verotoxins or E. coli O157:H7. The prevalence of verotoxins in fecal samples of cull cows was associated with the source of the cattle. It was highest in cows from the auction market (52%) and farm/ranch (47%) and lowest in cows from the feedlot (31%). In rumen samples, the prevalence of verotoxins was 6.4% (95% CI, 4.2% to 9.4%), and it was 0.8% (95% CI, 0.2% to 2.3%) for E. coli O157:H7, and 0.3% (95% CI, 0.007% to 1.5%) for Salmonella.  (+info)

Non-heart-beating organ donors as a source of kidneys for transplantation: a chart review. (8/878)

BACKGROUND: Organ transplantation is the treatment of choice for patients with end-stage organ failure, but the supply of organs has not increased to meet demand. This study was undertaken to determine the potential for kidney donation from patients with irremediable brain injuries who do not meet the criteria for brain death and who experience cardiopulmonary arrest after withdrawal of ventilatory support (controlled non-heart-beating organ donors). METHODS: The charts of 209 patients who died during 1995 in the Emergency Department and the intensive care unit at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary were reviewed. The records of patients who met the criteria for controlled non-heart-beating organ donation were studied in detail. The main outcome measure was the time from discontinuation of ventilation until cardiopulmonary arrest. RESULTS: Seventeen potential controlled non-heart-beating organ donors were identified. Their mean age was 62 (standard deviation 19) years. Twelve of the patients (71%) had had a cerebrovascular accident, and more than half (10 [59%]) did not meet the criteria for brain death because one or more brain stem reflexes were present. At the time of withdrawal of ventilatory support, the mean serum creatinine level was 71 (29) mumol/L, mean urine output was 214 (178) mL/h, and 9 (53%) patients were receiving inotropic agents. The mean time from withdrawal of ventilatory support to cardiac arrest was 2.3 (5.0) hours; 13 of the 17 patients died within 1 hour, and all but one died within 6 hours. For the year for which charts were reviewed, 33 potential conventional donors (people whose hearts were beating) were identified, of whom 21 (64%) became donors. On the assumption that 40% of the potential controlled non-heart-beating donors would not in fact have been donors (25% because of family refusal and 15% because of nonviability of the organs), there might have been 10 additional donors, which would have increased the supply of cadaveric kidneys for transplantation by 48%. INTERPRETATION: A significant number of viable kidneys could be retrieved and transplanted if eligibility for kidney donation was extended to include controlled non-heart-beating organ donors.  (+info)

EDMONTON … Today, the Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA) released the first report of its kind that outlines the health status of Métis Albertans.. The report, called Health Status of the Métis Population of Alberta, was made possible as a result of an Information Sharing Agreement and a $250,000 grant from Alberta Health to the MNA. The grant was used to develop a public health surveillance program to better understand the health status of Métis Albertans. The MNA also received funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada to support the surveillance efforts.. MNA President Audrey Poitras said, "We continue to remain true to our commitment to improve the health and well-being for Métis Albertans and today, we are pleased to report on the results of our partnership with Alberta Health…It has been three years since we began this endeavour, and although the results of the report are concerning, we look forward to starting on a new path to translate this information into appropriate and ...
Much above normal precipitation was recorded in a band across the province from Peace River and Jasper to Cold Lake, whereas northeastern Alberta recorded normal precipitation and the northwestern corner of the province recorded below normal precipitation. Most of southern Alberta recorded below normal to normal precipitation except in Rocky Mountain House, High River, and Claresholm where much above normal precipitation occurred, and the Drumheller, Brooks, and Medicine Hat areas where much below normal precipitation was recorded (Figure 5). Fall precipitation totals are illustrated in Figure 6. Soil moisture conditions in agricultural areas of the province, as measured by Alberta Agriculture for October 31, 2005 , can be seen in Figure 7. Soil moisture generally ranges from normal to well above normal in southern and western Alberta, with the most notable exceptions being in the High Level and Edson areas, which range from below normal to extreme deficit. Much of east central Alberta is ...
Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA) is pleased to announce the release of our three health reports on Cancer, Injuries, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The reports mark MNAs continued groundbreaking attempts to gather significant health information specific to Métis citizens of Alberta. "With our three new health reports," said MNA President Audrey Poitras, "the MNA is continuing towards our goal of developing health promotion and prevention strategies grounded in evidence-based information."

With the new provincial budget freshly on the table, and budget cuts expected once the details are unveiled later this month, the University of Albertas Parkland Institute, in conjunction with the Alberta Federation of Labour, will be hosting a conference entitled Re-Making Alberta: Recession Alternatives for an Alberta that Works. Diana Gibson, research director for the institute, points out how the Stelmach government has been taking "the low road" to economic recovery by introducing budget cuts to social services. In response, the conference has invited keynote speaker Asbjorn Wahl, Norwegian labour leader, to discuss recovery alternatives based on other models from outside Alberta.. "The Alberta government is taking such a different path from what other governments have done in this recession. So many mainstream economic organizations were saying, step up the stimulus, and dont talk about belt tightening as the recession spiraled down," notes Gibson. "And our government talked about ...

Natures Past Episode 38: Histories of Canadian Environmental Issues, Part VIII - Tar Sands. Here are ten books to contextualize the Alberta tar sands:. Chastko, Paul. Developing Albertas Oil Sands: From Karl Clark to Kyoto. Calgary: University of Calgary Press, 2004.. Focused on the politics of tar sands development in Alberta, particularly the inconsistent tensions between the federal and provincial governments, this book thoroughly explores the decisions taken at both the local and national level that contributed to Canada becoming a world leader in petroleum production. Divided into two parts, pre- and post-1945, Chastko identifies the importance of industry and scientific expertise in Alberta to the discovery of feasible techniques for separating the bitumen from the sand, before moving on to the role that foreign markets, federal-provincial tax structures, and emerging environmental concerns had for the growth of the industry in Alberta during the postwar years..

Natural disasters such as the wildfires that swept through Fort McMurray and Northern Alberta in May 2016 can have significant impacts on health, including exacerbating respiratory and cardiac conditions linked to poor air quality; mental health challenges like anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder; and long-term health impacts from the exposure to ash and environmental contaminants. To protect and improve health, safety and resiliency in the short and long term, accessible evidence is needed to deliver the appropriate health and social actions to the right people at the right time. The primary goal of this funding opportunity is to mitigate the harms and impact of the Alberta wildfires and evacuation by building on Canadas emerging expertise in disaster medicine and health research responses. It addresses issues that are directly applicable to health challenges Albertans are facing as a result of the wildfires, with emphasis on:. ...
Throughout Seths treatment process for Astrocytoma, music was a refuge. During band class at school, he could spend time with his friends and focus on a shared passion. When Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta wish grantors visited Seth, he knew exactly what he wanted: His very own trombone. He had been using the school instrument and wanted to have his own to practice during the summer months. Seths wish for an instrument turned into an experience much larger than he could even imagine!
In June 2013, excessive rainfall associated with an intense weather system triggered severe flooding in southern Alberta, which became the costliest natural disaster in Canadian history. This article provides an overview of the climatological aspects and large-scale hydrometeorological features associated with the flooding event based upon information from a variety of sources, including satellite data, upper air soundings, surface observations and operational model analyses. The results show that multiple factors combined to create this unusually severe event. The event was characterized by a slow-moving upper level low pressure system west of Alberta, blocked by an upper level ridge, while an associated well-organized surface low pressure system kept southern Alberta, especially the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains, in continuous precipitation for up to two days. Results from air parcel trajectory analysis show that a significant amount of the moisture originated from the central Great ...

Sun. Mar 2 - 4:46 AM. EDMONTON - Janelle Vermillion owns a house in the tiny northern Alberta community of Fort Chipewyan. Her family, including her brother, still lives there. She considers it home.. But the 27-year-old woman says she will never again feel safe living there.. "I just want to move back home," she said, fighting back tears as she gestured to the pink-clad six-month-old baby in the stroller in front of her.. "But this is my daughter, and I dont want to bring her back.". Vermillion was one of about 200 people who rallied on the steps of the Alberta legislature Saturday calling on the provincial government - whatever form it takes after Mondays election - to pay more attention to rates of cancer and illness in the community 600 kilometres north of Edmonton.. Many people believe oilsands development and major forestry mills in Fort McMurray, which is upstream from Fort Chipewyan, have led to contamination of the water and wildlife in the region.. Emotions ran high as the crowd ...
A quick transformation of an InnoTech Alberta facility helped the Government of Alberta set up the countrys first lab to research whirling disease and learn more about its presence in Albertas fish populations. The unique facility, previously used for autopsies on large animals, was transformed over six weeks and is now a lab working to detect a parasite that is new to our Canadian landscape.. The province has dedicated $9.3 million to determine the extent of whirling disease-part of a three-point action plan to provide emergency response and early detection, education and mitigation. From that, $2.9 million will go towards funding six full-time technicians, operating the InnoTech Alberta lab and hiring additional staff across the province as part of education and mitigation efforts.. We spoke with lab technicians Kenley Bzdel and Provincial Fish Disease Specialist Bev Larson to learn more.. ...
Due to a sustained increase in the number of cases of whooping cough (pertussis) confirmed in the Central Zone of Alberta, Alberta Health Services (AHS), AHS has declared a pertussis outbreak in the Central Zone and is offering additional immunization appointment opportunities for at-risk individuals.. A bacterial infection that causes severe coughing that lasts for weeks, pertussis can lead to pneumonia, convulsions, brain damage and even death. Infants six months of age and younger are at greatest risk for these serious complications.. Of the 107 cases of pertussis confirmed in the Central Zone in 2014 to date, seven cases have required hospitalization.. Pertussis can be treated, most successfully if caught early; however, immunization can safely prevent disease and, if it does occur, reduce symptoms and spread of the disease.. In Alberta, pertussis immunizations are offered - free of charge - through Albertas routine childhood immunization program.. A series of doses is recommended, starting ...

The Institute of Health Economics has published a policy paper recommending Alberta establish a comprehensive registry of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients that will capture important information about the safety and effectiveness of the different therapies available. The IHE says the limited scope of Albertas current registry is no longer sufficient, especially in light of the growing use of biologic agents, which treat RA by altering the bodys immune response. It says Alberta needs greater capability to monitor for adverse effects of biologic agents, whose long-term effects are unknown, and to compare the safety, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of current and future therapies.

The province of Alberta presents incredible investment opportunities as demand for petrochemicals, fuel, and other refined petroleum products continues to grow worldwide. Within the province, over $192 billion in projects are planned, underway, or have recently been completed (Government of Albertas Inventory of Major Projects, March 2012). Of this, the chemical and petrochemical sector accounts for $833 million, $2.2 billion is allotted to the oil and gas sector, and a staggering $125.9 billion in the oil sands sector..

Credit: Dene Tha. The Alberta government found out about the Zama spill on June 1st. The spill was detected by an Apache company plane that spotted it from the air. Viewing the spill from the air, it should have been immediately apparent that this spill was huge and quite significant yet for the next 6-days the public heard nothing about the spill from either the company or the Alberta government. The spill only came to light when, according to media reports, a local resident reported it to a TV station.. With a spill so large why did the Alberta government not report it to the public? Was the Redford government hoping that because of the remoteness of the area that they could just cover it up because no one would notice?. This is a very chilling question because a yes answer means that Alberta has a government willing to go to almost any length to control its image regardless of the truth, the impacts on the environment or the publics right to timely and accurate information.. ...

When I heard that there was a new study showing that tooth decay has worsened amongst Calgarys children since the city removed fluoride from its water supply in 2011, I hastened to have a look at the paper. Thats what I often do when theres a new piece of research in the news. But this one offered the priceless bonus of an opportunity to poke fun at Calgary.. The city council there seems to be about half clown at the best of times, and when it comes to child health, its worth remembering how the Calgary Flames jumped the queue for H1N1 flu vaccine in 2009, absconding with hundreds of doses from a star-struck clinic and having the paperwork fudged because hockey players are too important for socialized medicine. No, I am not one to resist a cheap shot at Calgary.. One reason I am like this, of course, is that Calgary is a nicer city than Edmonton in several obvious ways. And, of course, the tooth decay study from the journal Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology turns out to be a ...
Overview:. The Alberta government today released the draft Lower Athabasca Regional Plan (LARP), which was developed considering advice provided by the Lower Athabasca Regional Advisory Committee and feedback from the oil and gas industry, First Nations and other stakeholders during Phase 2 consultation last year. It is the first of seven regional plans to be undertaken in Alberta.. While the LARP is largely complete, an additional 60-day consultation period was announced by the government. CAPP will be an active participant in the process, to seek additional clarity on the implementation process and to resolve outstanding implementation issues. The LARP reflects earlier CAPP comments on issues raised in response to the Regional Advisory Committees advice to the government. Overall, this is a progressive step in the implementation of balanced land use planning and cumulative effects management in Alberta. Balanced regional planning must be based on both sound science and good judgment by policy ...

Two years after the initial complaints to the Human Rights Commission regarding discrimination on the basis of sex, the Supreme Court of Alberta ordered that CNAs and RNOs would be paid equal wages for work of equal value. This decision ruling in favour of the Nursing Aides gave direction that changed their history. The order was to cease discrimination on the basis of sex and that the Certified Nursing Aide and the Registered Nursing Orderly be paid equally. The effect of the Order went far beyond pay; the two groups were represented by different unions, trained in separate programs and under the authority of different government departments. CNAs were regulated under legislation while RNOs were voluntarily registered by the Alberta Association of Registered Nursing Orderlies. To eliminate the pay discrepancy, the Nursing Aides and the Nursing Orderlies were swept into the representative union with the largest majority (AARNA ...

Strong seasonality is observed in the volatile hourly Alberta temperature and its low- and high-order statistical moments. We propose a time series model consisting of a linear combination of an annual sinusoidal model, a diurnal sinusoidal model and a fractional residual model, to study the characteristics of these spatial and time-dependent Alberta temperatures. Wavelet multi-resolution analysis is used to measure Hurst exponents of the temperature series. Our empirical results show that these Hurst exponents vary over various time scales, indicating the existence of multi-fractality in the temperatures. Such temperature models are of importance for the pricing and insurance of agricultural crops, of tourist resorts and of all forms of energy extraction and generation of importance to the resource-based economy of Alberta. Of particular interests are the observed extreme volatilities in the winters, caused by the unpredictable Chinook winds, which may be an important reason to introduce a ...

People with severe kidney disease follow a restricted diet aimed at reducing intake of sodium, potassium and phosphate. These dietary restrictions require reducing their intake of many fresh fruits and vegetables, which may lead to nutritional deficiency. Although the potential for malnutrition in people with kidney disease is well recognized, blood levels of most vitamins and trace elements are rarely measured. Instead, most North Americans with severe kidney disease are routinely prescribed a renal vitamin such as Replavite which contains a mixture of B and C vitamins.. Recent evidence (including our work; see http://www.biomedcentral.com/bmcmed/subjects/nephrology) indicates that people with severe kidney disease are often deficient in several other biologically essential substances (selenium, zinc) that are readily amenable to supplementation. Pilot data from the Northern Alberta Renal Program (NARP) indicate that approximately 90% of patients have zinc levels below the lower limit of ...

A Brush Full of Colour The World of Ted Harrison (Book) : Ruurs, Margriet : Ted Harrisons brightly coloured and wildly imaginative paintings set in the Yukon have become synonymous with the North. His instantly-recognizable images of the land of the midnight sun hang in galleries and private collections around the world. But how did a boy who grew up in a drab mining town in northeast England become one of Canadas most beloved and decorated artists?A Brush Full of Colour is the story of a boy whose passion for learning would save him from a life in the coalmines. The books by the American writer Jack London and Canadian poet Robert Service fired his imagination with scenes of the wilderness and the Klondike Gold Rush. He wanted to become an artist and he went on to art school. A stint in the British IntelligenceService gave him the chance to travel. But Ted never stopped dreaming of the North, and when he saw an advertisement for teachers in Northern Alberta, he jumped at the chance.Margriet Ruurs and
... Kyle Malinowski Report on the Health, Diet, and Old Ways of the Blackfeet The Blackfeet Indians or the Siksikauw (black-foot-people) have a long and rich history in North America. The Blackfeet people were nomadic hunter/gatherers of the Great Plains who relied heavily on the buffalo as their main source of food as meat constituted 90% of their daily diet. The remaining 10% of their diet was filled with roots and bulbs, eggs, and an assortment of wild berries and vegetables. Prior to reservation policy, the Blackfeets vast domain stretched from Montana all the way up to northern Alberta Canada offering them tremendous resources and vast hunting grounds. (Wissler 7) Despite being moved to a reservation, the Blackfeet people today feel very fortunate to be one of the six Native American tribes who were allowed to have their reservation on their native lands, as the current reservation is located in Northern Montana by Glacier National Park. (The Blackfeet Today) Current Health of the ...

Mention survival in the Canadian wilderness to teens and theyll likely recall Brians adventures in Gary Paulsens curriculum-standard novel Hatchet (Bradbury, 1987). But long before fictional Brian learned to hunt and forage, Cea Sunrise Persons extended family had erected a patchwork tipi in Northern Alberta, far from the oppression of society and completely off the grid. Person tells her story with candor, poignancy, and humor as she looks back on a childhood of the 1970s unlike that of anyone shed ever known. Papa Dick, Persons grandfather, was a free-thinking back-to-basics survivalist with negative feelings toward the American government and strong beliefs about how to live a healthy life. Clothing was discouraged (it impedes natural energy flow), and there was no need for privacy for such natural acts as moving your bowels or having sex. He lectured against the evils of sugar and preservatives and for the benefits of marijuana. Born to 16 year-old Michelle, Person recognized that her ...
We retrospectively reviewed the timing of antibiotics, fluid, and vasoactive agents in children who were prospectively enrolled in the ASN database from the PICU for Northern Alberta. The main findings are the following. First, early timing of appropriate antibiotics was associated with longer PICU LOS on univariate analysis; however, it was not independently associated with PICU LOS, ventilator days, or change in PELOD score from day 1 to 3 in all included children (n = 79) or those with septic shock (n = 44). This is despite fairly wide variability in time to administration of appropriate antibiotics in the patients (median 115.0; IQR 59.0 − 323.0 minutes). Second, higher volume of fluid boluses in the first 2 h of presentation with sepsis was independently associated with longer PICU LOS and more ventilator days in children with septic shock. Of note, time to starting vasoactive agents was not associated with outcomes. Third, severity of illness (PRISM-III score) and severe underlying ...
Wolverine was born as James Howlett in northern Alberta, Canada, during the late 1880s, purportedly to rich farm owners John and Elizabeth Howlett,[29] though he is actually the illegitimate son of the Howletts groundskeeper, Thomas Logan.[30] After Thomas is thrown off the Howletts property for an attempted rape perpetrated by his other son, named simply Dog, he returns to the Howlett manor and kills John Howlett. In retaliation, young James kills Thomas with bone claws that emerge from the back of his hands, as his mutation manifests.[31] He flees with his childhood companion, Rose, and grows into manhood on a mining colony in the Yukon, adopting the name "Logan".[32] When Logan accidentally kills Rose with his claws, he flees the colony and lives in the wilderness among wolves,[33] until he is captured and placed in a circus.[34] Saul Creed, brother of Victor Creed, frees Logan, but after he betrays Logan and Clara Creed to Nathaniel Essex, Logan drowns Creed in Essexs potion.[35] Logan ...

In northern Alberta, mining operations to obtain bitumen from the oil sands generates large volumes of tailings. These are a mixture of sand, clay, water, organic solvents and residual bitumen that are deposited into old open pits, creating tailings ponds, where they are allowed to settle with the final goal of land reclamation. To speed up the sedimentation process, the addition of gypsum (CaSO4 ∙ 2H2O) is currently a management approach used bysome companies. This creates a deep watery mud line with very low oxygen permeability and enough sulfate to support the growth of anaerobic microbial communities. In this thesis work, the microbial physiology and communities associated with oil sands tailings ponds were assessed. Chemical, physiological, and molecular biology approaches were used to determine the key microbial processes (methanogenesis, sulfate reduction/oxidation), identify key substrates, and determine the dominant microbial community members in the anaerobic and aerobic zones of ...
