Commercialization of BRCA1/2 testing: practitioner awareness and use of a new genetic test. (1/1787)

It was our purpose to determine the characteristics of practitioners in the United States who were among the first to inquire about and use the BRCA1 and BRCA2 (BRCA1/2) genetic tests outside of a research protocol. Questionnaires were mailed to all practitioners who requested information on or ordered a BRCA1/2 test from the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) Genetic Diagnostics Laboratory (GDL) between October 1, 1995 and January 1, 1997 (the first 15 months the test was available for clinical use). The response rate was 67% of practitioners; 54% (121/225) were genetic counselors, 39% (87/225) were physicians or lab directors. Most physicians were oncologists, pathologists, or obstetrician/gynecologists, but 20% practiced surgery or internal or general medicine. Fifty-six percent (125/225) had ordered a BRCA1/2 test for a patient; most of the rest had offered or were willing to offer testing. Of those who had offered testing, 70% had a patient decline BRCA1/2 testing when offered. Practitioners perceived that patients' fear of loss of confidentiality was a major reason for declining. Nearly 60% of practitioners reported that their patients had access to a genetic counselor, but 28% of physicians who ordered a BRCA1/2 test reported having no such access, despite the GDL's counseling requirement. The proportion of physicians reporting no access to genetic counselors for their patients increased from 22.4% in the first half of the study to 50% in the last half. Many practitioners have an interest in BRCA1/2 testing, despite policy statements that discourage its use outside of research protocols. Practitioner responses suggest that patient interest in testing seems to be tempered by knowledge of potential risks. An apparent increase in patient concern about confidentiality and inability to pay for testing could indicate growing barriers to testing. Although most practitioners reported having access to counseling facilities, perceived lack of such access among an increasing proportion of practitioners indicates that lab requirements for counseling are difficult to enforce and suggests that an increasing proportion of patients may not be getting access to counseling.  (+info)

Does vestibular stimulation activate thalamocortical mechanisms that reintegrate impaired cortical regions? (2/1787)

Caloric stimulation induced a transient reversal of multimodal hemispatial cognitive deficits in an 81-year-old woman with an acute left cerebral hemisphere stroke. The patient had unawareness of her right hand (asomatognosia), right-sided visual unawareness (hemineglect), aphasia and right-sided weakness (hemiplegia) prior to the stimulation. Transient improvements in impaired sensory, motor, linguistic and cognitive function developed within 30 s following application of the caloric stimulus and onset of horizontal nystagmus. The effect persisted for 3 min and ceased completely after 5 min. While several recent reports have described the capacity of caloric stimulation to transiently improve or reverse a wide range of attentional, cognitive and motor impairments, most examples are in right-hemisphere-damaged patients with long-standing brain injury. Typically, patients have been tested several months or years after the onset of the deficit. A possible mechanism for the temporary reintegration of multiple cognitive functions in this patient is discussed.  (+info)

Audit of patients' awareness of ophthalmic diagnoses. (3/1787)

Providing information to patients about their medical condition and treatment options is important in medical management. To assess patients' knowledge of their ocular disease, prognosis, and treatment a questionnaire based survey was performed. 219 patients selected by random systematic sampling during six months from patients attending general ophthalmic clinics in Selly Oak Hospital, Birmingham, were questioned and 217 questionnaires were analysed. The findings showed that patients' knowledge of their diagnosis depended on their condition: patients with common conditions such as glaucoma and cataract had a better understanding of their condition, its treatment, and prognosis compared with patients with rarer conditions such as retinal detachment or patients with multiple diagnoses. In all, 152 patients (70%) wanted more information about their condition; 49 (23%) did not (although 12 (25%) had attempted to obtain information); and 16 (7%) were undecided. In view of the few patients with a precise understanding of their ophthalmic diagnosis and prognosis and the majority's wish for access to further information, that access needs improvement and different modes of disseminating the information should be implemented.  (+info)

Prevalence of insomnia: a survey of the enrollees at five managed care organizations. (4/1787)

The purpose of the study was to assess the prevalence of and factors associated with insomnia among enrollees of managed care organizations (MCOs). A survey was distributed either by mail or during a clinic visit to 7,500 enrollees of five MCOs in the United States. The survey included a sleep questionnaire, demographic questions, and questions about medical encounters and prescription drug use. Three levels of insomnia (none; level I--difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep; level II--insomnia with daytime dysfunction) were defined from the responses. Comorbidities were determined by proxy from prescription drug use reported by respondents. A total of 3,447 survey responses were received, yielding a response rate of 46%. Level I and level II insomnia was reported by 13.5% and 32.5% of the respondents, respectively. Level II insomnia increased with decreasing education, income, and age and was more prevalent in women and non-Caucasians. Insomnia was significantly correlated with all daytime sleepiness and most nighttime disturbances factors. Fifty-two percent of all respondents reported at least one comorbid condition. Respondents with multiple comorbidities reported level II insomnia more frequently than those with no comorbidities. Only 0.9% of clinic visitors were seeing a physician specifically for sleep problems. Of those with level I and level II insomnia, only 5.5% and 11.6%, respectively, were taking prescription medications specifically for sleep problems; 11.2% and 21.4%, respectively, were taking over-the-counter medications for sleep. Insomnia occurs in MCO enrollees at rates comparable to those found in the general population. However, few patients with insomnia are actually being treated for their condition. Proper evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of insomnia are warranted.  (+info)

Tramadol or morphine administered during operation: a study of immediate postoperative effects after abdominal hysterectomy. (5/1787)

Tramadol may cause awareness and EEG activation during anaesthesia. We compared tramadol with morphine, administered during wound-closure, surmising that tramadol may cause earlier awakening, more rapid recovery, less respiratory depression and equivalent pain relief. Forty patients received nitrous oxide-enflurane for abdominal surgery. At wound closure, patients received tramadol 3 mg kg-1 or morphine 0.2 mg kg-1 and end-tidal enflurane concentrations were maintained at 0.5 kPa until skin closure, whereupon anaesthesia was discontinued. Times to spontaneous respiration, awakening and orientation were similar in the two groups, as were blood-gas tensions, ventilatory frequency, pain scores and incidence of nausea. Half of each group required supplementary analgesia during their 90-min stay in the recovery room. P-deletion counts improved more rapidly in the tramadol group. This study confirms previous reports that tramadol did not antagonize the hypnotic effects of volatile anaesthetics. Tramadol, administered during operation, was as effective as morphine in providing postoperative analgesia while permitting more rapid psychomotor recovery.  (+info)

Impact of network activity on the integrative properties of neocortical pyramidal neurons in vivo. (6/1787)

During wakefulness, neocortical neurons are subjected to an intense synaptic bombardment. To assess the consequences of this background activity for the integrative properties of pyramidal neurons, we constrained biophysical models with in vivo intracellular data obtained in anesthetized cats during periods of intense network activity similar to that observed in the waking state. In pyramidal cells of the parietal cortex (area 5-7), synaptic activity was responsible for an approximately fivefold decrease in input resistance (Rin), a more depolarized membrane potential (Vm), and a marked increase in the amplitude of Vm fluctuations, as determined by comparing the same cells before and after microperfusion of tetrodotoxin (TTX). The model was constrained by measurements of Rin, by the average value and standard deviation of the Vm measured from epochs of intense synaptic activity recorded with KAc or KCl-filled pipettes as well as the values measured in the same cells after TTX. To reproduce all experimental results, the simulated synaptic activity had to be of relatively high frequency (1-5 Hz) at excitatory and inhibitory synapses. In addition, synaptic inputs had to be significantly correlated (correlation coefficient approximately 0.1) to reproduce the amplitude of Vm fluctuations recorded experimentally. The presence of voltage-dependent K+ currents, estimated from current-voltage relations after TTX, affected these parameters by <10%. The model predicts that the conductance due to synaptic activity is 7-30 times larger than the somatic leak conductance to be consistent with the approximately fivefold change in Rin. The impact of this massive increase in conductance on dendritic attenuation was investigated for passive neurons and neurons with voltage-dependent Na+/K+ currents in soma and dendrites. In passive neurons, correlated synaptic bombardment had a major influence on dendritic attenuation. The electrotonic attenuation of simulated synaptic inputs was enhanced greatly in the presence of synaptic bombardment, with distal synapses having minimal effects at the soma. Similarly, in the presence of dendritic voltage-dependent currents, the convergence of hundreds of synaptic inputs was required to evoke action potentials reliably. In this case, however, dendritic voltage-dependent currents minimized the variability due to input location, with distal apical synapses being as effective as synapses on basal dendrites. In conclusion, this combination of intracellular and computational data suggests that, during low-amplitude fast electroencephalographic activity, neocortical neurons are bombarded continuously by correlated synaptic inputs at high frequency, which significantly affect their integrative properties. A series of predictions are suggested to test this model.  (+info)

Discharge profiles of abducens, accessory abducens, and orbicularis oculi motoneurons during reflex and conditioned blinks in alert cats. (7/1787)

The discharge profiles of identified abducens, accessory abducens, and orbicularis oculi motoneurons have been recorded extra- and intracellularly in alert behaving cats during spontaneous, reflexively evoked, and classically conditioned eyelid responses. The movement of the upper lid and the electromyographic activity of the orbicularis oculi muscle also were recorded. Animals were conditioned by short, weak air puffs or 350-ms tones as conditioned stimuli (CS) and long, strong air puffs as unconditioned stimulus (US) using both trace and delayed conditioning paradigms. Motoneurons were identified by antidromic activation from their respective cranial nerves. Orbicularis oculi and accessory abducens motoneurons fired an early, double burst of action potentials (at 4-6 and 10-16 ms) in response to air puffs or to the electrical stimulation of the supraorbital nerve. Orbicularis oculi, but not accessory abducens, motoneurons fired in response to flash and tone presentations. Only 10-15% of recorded abducens motoneurons fired a late, weak burst after air puff, supraorbital nerve, and flash stimulations. Spontaneous fasciculations of the orbicularis oculi muscle and the activity of single orbicularis oculi motoneurons that generated them also were recorded. The activation of orbicularis oculi motoneurons during the acquisition of classically conditioned eyelid responses happened in a gradual, sequential manner. Initially, some putative excitatory synaptic potentials were observed in the time window corresponding to the CS-US interval; by the second to the fourth conditioning session, some isolated action potentials appeared that increased in number until some small movements were noticed in eyelid position traces. No accessory abducens motoneuron fired and no abducens motoneuron modified their discharge rate for conditioned eyelid responses. The firing of orbicularis oculi motoneurons was related linearly to lid velocity during reflex blinks but to lid position during conditioned responses, a fact indicating the different neural origin and coding of both types of motor commands. The power spectra of both reflex and conditioned lid responses showed a dominant peak at approximately 20 Hz. The wavy appearance of both reflex and conditioned eyelid responses was clearly the result of the high phasic activity of orbicularis oculi motor units. Orbicularis oculi motoneuron membrane potentials oscillated at approximately 20 Hz after supraorbital nerve stimulation and during other reflex and conditioned eyelid movements. The oscillation seemed to be the result of both intrinsic (spike afterhyperpolarization lasting approximately 50 ms, and late depolarizations) and extrinsic properties of the motoneuronal pool and of the circuits involved in eye blinks.  (+info)

Awareness during anesthesia: a closed claims analysis. (8/1787)

BACKGROUND: Awareness during general anesthesia is a frightening experience, which may result in serious emotional injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. We performed an in-depth analysis of cases from the database of the American Society of Anesthesiologists Closed Claims Project to explore the contribution of intraoperative awareness to professional liability in anesthesia. METHODS: The database of the Closed Claims Project is composed of closed US malpractice claims that have been collected in a standardized manner. All claims for intraoperative awareness were reviewed by the reviewers to identify patterns of causation and standard of care. Logistic regression analysis was used to identify independent patient and anesthetic factors associated with claims for recall during general anesthesia compared to other general anesthesia malpractice claims. RESULTS: Awareness claims accounted for 79 (1.9%) of 4,183 claims in the database, including 18 claims for awake paralysis, i.e., the inadvertent paralysis of an awake patient, and 61 claims for recall during general anesthesia, ie., recall of events while receiving general anesthesia. The majority of awareness claims involved women (77%), younger than 60 yr of age (89%), American Society of Anesthesiologists physical class I-II (68%), who underwent elective surgery (87%). Most (94%) claims for awake paralysis represented substandard care involving errors in labeling and administration, whereas care was substandard in only 43% of the claims for recall during general anesthesia (P < 0.001). Claims for recall during general anesthesia were more likely to involve women (odds ratio [OR] = 3.08, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.58, 6.06) and anesthetic techniques using intraoperative opioids (OR = 2.12, 95% CI = 1.20, 3.74), intraoperative muscle relaxants (OR = 2.28, 95% CI = 1.22, 4.25), and no volatile anesthetic (OR = 3.20, 95% CI = 1.88, 5.46). CONCLUSIONS: Deficiencies in labeling and vigilance were common causes for awake paralysis. Claims for recall during general anesthesia were more likely in women and with nitrous-narcotic-relaxant techniques.  (+info)

In continuous flash suppression (CFS), a dynamic noise masker, presented to one eye, suppresses conscious perception of a test stimulus, presented to the other eye, until the suppressed stimulus comes to awareness after few seconds. But what do we see breaking the dominance of the masker in the transition period? We addressed this question with a dual-task in which observers indicated (i) whether the test object was left or right of the fixation mark (localization) and (ii) whether it was a face or a house (categorization). As done recently (Stein et al., 2011), we used two experimental varieties to rule out confounds with decisional strategy. In the terminated mode, stimulus and masker were presented for distinct durations, and the observers were asked to give both judgements at the end of the trial. In the self-paced mode, presentation lasted until the observers responded. In the self-paced mode, b-CFS durations for object categorization were about half a second longer than for object localization.
Large-group awareness training (LGAT) refers to activities usually offered by groups linked with the human potential movement which claim to increase self-awareness and bring about desirable transformations in individuals personal lives. They are noted for being unconventional and often take place over several days. LGAT programs may involve several hundred people at a time. Though early definitions cited LGATs as featuring unusually long durations, more recent texts describe the trainings as lasting from a few hours to a few days. Forsyth and Corazzini cite Lieberman (1994) as suggesting "that at least 1.3 million Americans have taken part in LGAT sessions". Rubinstein compared large-group awareness training to certain principles of cognitive therapy, such as the idea that people can change their lives by interpreting the way they view external circumstances. In Consumer Research: Postcards from the edge, discussing behavioral and economic studies, the authors contrasted the "enclosed ...

The operative. layer involves two fire chiefs who are commanding two fire units each. The supervisory. unit consists of two persons that are to co-ordinate the fire chiefs. The supervisory unit. receives all information from the fire chiefs but has to construct an overall picture, a socalled. situation awareness, of the development of the whole area. The supervisory unit. constructs this situation awareness which is meant to be supported by the graphical and. textual databases respectively. We hypothesised that the graphical condition would be. more successful than the textual database in registering the current situation, since the. graphical database allows ...

The internal consistencies in initial psychometric testing for the English MAIA ranged from 0.66-0.82 with 5 of the 8 subscales showing unstandardized alphas >0.70. In addition, confirmatory factor analyses resulted in good model fit for the 8 factor model of the scale (CFI=.886) (Mehling et al. PLoS ONE, 2012). The final survey was comprised of the 8 subscales described as follows, including 32 items. The first subscale, "Noticing" is defined as "awareness of uncomfortable, comfortable and neutral body sensations." It is comprised of 4 items; the scale demonstrates moderate reliability (α = 0.69). Two further subscales "Not-Distracting" (the tendency to ignore or distract oneself from sensations of pain or discomfort) and "Not Worrying" (emotional distress or worry with sensations of pain or discomfort), are both reverse coded measures with 3 items. They demonstrated sub-optimal internal consistency (Not Distracting: Cronbachs α =0.66; Not Worrying: Cronbachs α = 0.67) (Mehling et al PLoS ...
FLORENCE, Ala. - The Zeta Tau Alpha sorority chapter of the University of North Alabama will host its annual "Pink Week" events Oct. 31 through Nov. 4 to raise awareness about breast cancer. The yearly UNA activities and party bring in funding for the Susan B. Komen for the Cure Foundation.. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and groups across the nation are taking action to spread the word about the cancer that Susan B. Komen officials predict will produce more than 230,000 cases in women this year. The same data also projects 39,520 breast cancer deaths among women in 2011 in the United States.. Jennie Sun, a UNA student and president of ZTA, said the sorority is working hard this year to make the "Pink Week" events fun and inviting to the UNA and local communities..

A researcher at the Ransselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York have built a robot that have passed the classic wise men puzzle test of self-awareness.. The wise men puzzle is based on a story. A king is choosing a new advisor and gathers the three wisest people in the land. He promises the contest will be fair, then puts either a blue or white hat on each of their heads and tells them all that the first person to stand up and correctly deduce the colour of their own hat will become his new advisor.. Selmer Bringsjord set up three robots. Two were prevented from talking, so all three were asked which one was still able to speak. All attempt to say "I dont know", but only one succeeds - and when it hears its own voice, it understands that it was not silenced, saying "Sorry, I know now!". For a robot to pass the test it has to listen to and understand the question, then hear its own voice saying "I dont know" and recognise it as distinct from another robots voice, then connect that with the ...

It has been proposed that cast shadows provide an indication of scene geometry as the 3-D location of objects and direction of illumination can be inferred from the orientation of a cast shadow. Kersten et al. (1997) demonstrated that, in the absence of additional depth cues, the position of a moving cast shadow relative to the object largely accounts for an objects motion trajectory despite the fact that size of the stimulus might be inconsistent with the inferred motion direction. In the present study, we additionally find that the motion of the cast shadow largely accounts for the extent of illusory motion in depth for light-from-above conditions. This is evident when both the matched stereo motion and shadow speed are defined in equivalent values of centimeters per second. Note that in Figure 2A, stereo motion speed is given in terms of binocular disparity, and thus only describes the angular difference between the location of the stimulus on the retinas. However, geometric movement in ...

At a purely physiological level, this awareness can be described as a form of visceral awareness or interoception, which is our sense of the physiological state of our bodies or material self. We have a distinct sense of our own homeostatic activity and the physiological condition of all tissues in our bodies, including, for example, pain, temperature, sensual touch, itching, muscular and visceral sensations, hunger and thirst. Our visceral awareness or interoceptive system relies on homeostatic metarepresentations generated in the brain (right anterior insula), which may be the basis for the subjective image of the material self as a knowing, feeling (sentient) entity. This phenomenon is what we think of as emotional awareness (Craig, A.D, 2003).. Such self-referential awareness is indicated by activity in the brains default mode network (DMN), which is the brains standby mode. The DMN kicks in were not attending a particular task and arent focused on the external world (Tagini, A., ...

Awareness support in MDA technologies is virtually nonexistent. Furthermore, until recently there was no conceptual model suitable for representing Awareness support in model based architectures. Here, we introduce an extension of UsiXML user interface description language to support Awareness as an information requirement. UsiXML aims to describe multi-context and multimodal user interfaces. The model-based approach of UsiXML makes it a good candidate for integrating Awareness Support from the requirements phase to the final user interfaces. It enables Awareness requirements to be traced from the final user interfaces to the tasks and domain entities that generate them, allowing developers to maintain and validate all the Awareness mechanisms provided by the system. This leads not only to a better quality of system developed, but also an organized and traceable development of Awareness mechanisms, easier maintenance and improved user interaction.

The awareness of HPV among these young primiparous women was low, as only one third of the participants reported having "ever heard about HPV", despite the fact that the present analysis began 16 days after public news and announcements about the first regulatory approval of one of the HPV vaccines, on June 08, 2006 [10], and the fact that participants in the present study had relatively high levels of education within the Brazilian context.. Surveys conducted previously and before the regulatory approval of HPV vaccines also showed a low level of awareness of HPV (30-40%) [11-14]. The results of the present study are in line with other recent studies, carried out after regulatory approval of HPV vaccination, that showed limited levels of awareness of HPV. In the United Kingdom and Italy (where HPV vaccine is free of charge for girls of 12 years of age), only about 24% and 30% of respondents, respectively, reported awareness of HPV [15, 16].. In the present study, awareness of HPV was the first ...

There were 20 studies in this category: 8 in unselected populations with T1D (4,21-27) and 12 in participants with IAH at baseline (9,28-38). Eight studies (22,23,24,26,29,30,33,34) were long-term, durations ranging between 1 and 3 years.. In unselected populations with T1D, some educational programs were based on well-established structured education in insulin self-management, such as the German Diabetes Treatment and Training Program (DTTP), designed in Dusseldorf (39) and adopted elsewhere in Germany (25); Dose Adjustment For Normal Eating (DAFNE) (21); and the Tayside insulin management course (4), an adaptation from Bournemouth type 1 intensive education (BERTIE), whereas others were based on psychoeducational programs, such as Blood Glucose Awareness Training (BGAT) (22-24,26), delivered in individual or group settings.

Thanks for posting about this. I too think this is so interesting since I have about zero interoceptive awareness at this time in my life. And Ive always been bad at sensing whats going on with my body even before I developed AN. Ive always had a hard time telling if I was hungry, if I was sick, and on and on. I get very caught up in research like this because it explains my experiences with AN so well and makes so much sense to me--much more so than socio-cultural explanations of eating disorders. But I think Cathy is right to point out that whereas this helps explain a lot of things, it doesnt necessarily get to what we do next. And I think there is such a danger with research of this type of jumping the gun and assuming we know much more than we do about the brain and how it works. Like you said, its not clear how BDNF impacts IA and I think there is a tendency to oversimplify these things which is not helpful. I know for me just understanding the biological issues going on with my AN ...

Rāmakaṇṭha seems to maintain an extreme position: svasaṃvedana is just the nature of consciousness. Hence, it does not entail any object as its content. It is, moreover, present even in deep sleep, coma, and "within thoughts". The latter example refers to a typical Śaiva argument in favour of a permanent self (see Vasuguptas Śivasūtra and commentaries thereon): one needs an underlying self enabling one to shift from one thought to the other. This leads me to the following conclusion: Rāmakaṇṭha held this strange position (self-awareness of cognition qua cognition but without any cognised content) because he just substituted "consciousness" for any occurrence of "self" (ātman) (on this point, see Watson 2006 who nicely explains how Rāmakaṇṭha countered Buddhists by accepting all their arguments in favour of cognition alone and then explaining that cognition IS the self). Then, he assumed that self-awareness is co-essential to consciousness. Hence, his arguments in favour of ...
Awareness can be awesome or be ridiculous depending on the methods. For example, breast cancer awareness is all over the place. While its awesome that breast cancer is well-known and "pink" is everywhere, the ridiculous part is that its everywhere. Companies know that they will make money off of the Pink campaign, so they make sure they put the "Pink" label or they make the color pink so that people will want to buy it and donate a portion toward Susan G. Komen. While I love how successful Susan G. Komen is and how aware the world is today of breast cancer and the dangers it holds, I despise how downplayed most cancers are. When I first heard the word "thyroid," I didnt even know how to spell it, let alone what it was. I hardly knew about my body, except for the usual girl stuff that were supposed to know just before we hit puberty. Sad, really. From what I remember in my life, I have had three classes that deal with the body, two of which were about human development and STDs, and one was ...

Today is the start of the fifth annual Autism Awareness Month, packed with events and publicity about autism. But for some activists whove been on the front lines for some time, the frontier has moved beyond "awareness" to "acceptance." In fact theres an alternate Autism Acceptance Month movement.. Steve Silverman, a Wired reporter who has a blog called NeuroTribes, explains the shift from "awareness" to "acceptance" this way: "The lions share of the money raised by star-studded "awareness" campaigns goes into researching potential genetic and environmental risk factors-not to improving the quality of life for the millions of autistic adults who are already here, struggling to get by.". Noting the recent CDC report that one in 88 children in a sample of 8-year-olds were found to have autism spectrum disorder, he writes, "When kids on the spectrum graduate from high school, they and their families are often cut adrift-left to fend for themselves in the face of dwindling social services and ...
As November draws to a close, so does Lung Cancer Awareness Month, but that doesnt mean we should forget about this devastating cancer that affects hundreds of thousands of people annually. For a cancer than claims more lives than breast, colon, and prostate cancer combined, it is severely underfunded, leaving scientists and researchers reliant on private funding and donations. Funding for lung cancer, as with many other cancers, plays a critical role in developing and investigating research that could eventually lead to a cure.. Donating to cancer research is not just about the race to find a cure, but to also understand the disease itself. Determining risk factors - such as diet - for cancer is a preventative measure that scientists can provide for us, but research is still needed to determine what other instances can contribute to the development of lung cancer. We know that smokers have a higher chance of developing lung cancer than non-smokers, but there are many instances where fit, ...
May has quickly approached us, which means its Skin Cancer Awareness Month.

Mind wandering is a pervasive threat to transportation safety, potentially accounting for a substantial number of crashes and fatalities. In the current study, mind wandering was induced through completion of the same task for 5 days, consisting of a 20-minute monotonous freeway-driving scenario, a cognitive depletion task, and a repetition of the 20-minute driving scenario driven in the reverse direction. Participants were periodically probed with auditory tones to self-report whether they were mind wandering or focused on the driving task. Self-reported mind wandering frequency was high, and did not statistically change over days of participation. For measures of driving performance, participant labeled periods of mind wandering were associated with reduced speed and reduced lane variability, in comparison to periods of on task performance. For measures of electrophysiology, periods of mind wandering were associated with increased power in the alpha band of the electroencephalogram (EEG), as well as a
Asbestos Awareness Week starts today. The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) is kicking off this global campaign of education and awareness about the risks of asbestos and the need for a ban with a candlelight vigil. Throughout the week, theyll be presenting information from doctors, activists, and victims of asbestos diseases.. Asbestos Awareness Week was founded in 2005 by the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) that since its founding in 2004 has dedicated time and resources to educate the public about the misconceptions associated with asbestos. The awareness originally began as just a singular day dedicated to the cause but in 2007, the ADAO asked to the U.S. Senate to extend the day to a week-long event. The ADAO is also holding its 15th International Asbestos Awareness and Prevention Conference in Washington, DC April 5 to April 7, 2019.. Asbestos Exposure Is Deadly. There is no known safe level of asbestos exposure and in many instances those suffering from ...
Its May. In the Lowcountry that means beach and boating weather. Time to get out-of-doors with your family and friends and enjoy this amazing place we live.. There is something else that happens every May: Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Its not ironic that the awareness month for this common form of cancer is in May, exactly when most of us want to enjoy the time outdoors.. By now, everyone knows to cover up, use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 and protect yourself against sunburns and excessive exposure. And we all know why.. One in five people will get skin cancer, yet skin cancer is one of the most highly treatable cancers, especially when caught early. According to the Skin Care Foundation (SKF), "About 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.". Many skin cancers begin with Actinic Keratosis (Pre-Cancers) which may appear as rough, scaly patches. The good news is that these pre-cancers can be treated.. The most common skin ...
Objective: To assess the prevalence of 3 troublesome temporomandibular disorder (TMD) symptoms and awareness of bruxism in 2 cohorts of subjects aged 65 and 75 years. Background: Epidemiological studies have demonstrated a high, though varying, prevalence of TMD symptoms. The results concerning elderly people are inconclusive. Material and methods: Identical questionnaires were in 2007 sent to all subjects born in 1942 and 1932 living in two Swedish counties. The response rate was 73.1% for the 65- and 71.9 % for the 75-year-old subjects, totally 9093 subjects. This study focused on 3 questions on the severity of TMD symptoms and 1 question on awareness of bruxism. Results: The great majority reported no or only few TMD problems. Less than 3 % (måste kontrolleras!) considered their TMD symptoms to be rather great or severe. The mean prevalence of TMD-related symptoms and bruxism was greater in women than in men in both age groups. The 75-year-old women reported a marked lower prevalence of TMD ...
H&O What have studies shown about direct-to-consumer advertising of medical treatments?. LS A few studies have evaluated direct-to-consumer advertising of medical treatments, but they are not the most authoritative because they are not easy to conduct. Gregory A. Abel, MD, MPH, has published studies on patient awareness and prescribing habits.1,2 For the study on patient awareness, Dr Abel mailed questionnaires to patients who were receiving cancer treatments to assess their awareness of advertising. The study found that patients were highly aware of this type of advertising, and that it prompted a modest amount of discussion with their healthcare provider. Few patients, however, reported changes in therapy. The study on prescribing patterns found that for every million dollars spent on direct-to-consumer advertising for aromatase inhibitors, there was an associated increase 3 months later in appropriate prescriptions, but no significant change for inappropriate prescriptions.. In the oncology ...
