The pattern of severe protein-calorie malnutrition in Sudanese children attending a large hospital in The Sudan. (1/75)

One hundred fifty patients suffering from severe protein-calorie malnutrition, admitted in 1 month to the Pediatric wards of Wad Medani Hospital, Sudan, were classified according to the Wellcome classification. Marasmus was the prevailing type. It was common in the 2nd year of life, while kwashiorkor occurred mainly under the age of 12 months. Anthropometric measurements showed that kwashiorkor was an acute disease while marasmus and marasmic kwashiorkor were more chronic. The triceps skinfold was unexpectedly low in kwashiorkor. Of the simple measurements and ratios used for assessing the nutritional status, the head/chest ratio applied ot children over 1 year was not found to be reliable and the weight for head circumference correlated poorly with deficits in other variables. Non of the major clinical features was found to be pathognomonic of any type of severe protein-calorie malnutrition. Megaloblastic anemia was common.  (+info)

Hepatitis B antigen in Montreal blood donors: childhood institutionalization as an epidemiologic factor. (2/75)

In 1971 the Canadian Red Cross blood tranfusion service instituted routine screening for HBAg of all blood donors, using nationwide a standardized counterimmunoelectrophoretic technique. The prevalence of carriers in the Province of Quebec is unusually high (0.51%), being 3 to 12 times higher than in the other nine provinces. Among the carriers found in the Montreal area 289 volunteered to be seen by our group for an extensive interview and a series of laboratory tests. There were 243 men and 46 women; their ages ranged from 18 to 55, 90% being less than 40. Twenty-nine were of foreign origin and 260 were born in Canada. The epidemiologic data revealed that the reservoir of HBAg carriers among the blood donors of the Montreal area was found predominantly in the autochthonous population of French origin. Moreover, it appeared that 149 (52%) had lived in institution when they were infants or children: 127 were orphans and had been placed in institutions as newborns or babies, and 22 others had lived in institutions for at least 1 year between the ages of 5 and 10. This was by far the most important single epidemiologic factor that could contribute to the explanation of the abnormally high prevalence of HBAg carriers in the population studied.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: The sequelae of profound early privation are varied. AIMS: To delineate the behavioural patterns that are specifically associated with institutional privation. METHOD: A group of 165 children adopted from Romania before the age of 42 months were compared at 4 years and 6 years with 52 non-deprived UK children adopted in infancy. Dysfunction was assessed for seven domains of functioning. The groups were compared on which, and how many, domains were impaired. RESULTS: Attachment problems, inattention/overactivity, quasi-autistic features and cognitive impairment were associated with institutional privation, but emotional difficulties, poor peer relationships and conduct problems were not. Nevertheless, one-fifth of children who spent the longest time in institutions showed normal functioning. CONCLUSIONS: Attachment disorder behaviours, inattention/overactivity and quasi-autistic behaviour constitute institutional privation patterns.  (+info)

Does providing social services with information and advice on immunisation status of "looked after children" improve uptake? (4/75)

We prospectively assessed whether providing social services with information on the immunisation status for a cohort of looked after children in the care of an urban unitary authority in England improved uptake rates. The provision of such information did not improve immunisation coverage in these children.  (+info)

Children of low birthweight in the 1946 national cohort. Behaviour and educational achievement in adolescence. (5/75)

Among 12 468 legitimate single births in the first week of March 1946, 163 weighed 200 g or less (LBW group) and of these 80 survived to 18 years. 6 of the LBW survivors emigrated with their families and 5 have not been traced since birth. The remaining 69 were followed up to the age of 15 at which time two early school leavers were lost to the study. There is evidence that none of the survivors who emigrated or left the sample and serious physical or mental impairment. Compared with individually matched controls, the LBW children showed similar proportions with severe physical, mental, or behavioural handicaps. There are small and statistically nonsignificant differences in favour of the controls in ability and attainment scores at 15 years and in the level of academic qualifications gained by the age of 18. If the mean ability and attainment scores are expressed as an "intelligence quotient" with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15, the LBW group has an average IQ of 93 and the controls of 97. Hospital stay after childbirth was much longer in 1946 than today and many LBW children spent more than 3 weeks in hospital. There is no evidence that long hospital stay was associated with problems of behaviour or learning in adolescence.  (+info)

Pre-placement screening in international adoption. (6/75)

BACKGROUND: The number of child adoptions from abroad is increasing, but the adverse living conditions of these children prior to the adoption raise questions on their medical and neurodevelopmental status, particularly since there are no guidelines for pre- or post-adoption medical evaluation. OBJECTIVES: To describe the condition of a cohort of young children who were candidates for adoption in East European orphanages and foster homes, and to determine those attributes associated with a family's decision to adopt or refuse a particular child. METHODS: Eighty-two young children, median age 11 months, were evaluated by Israeli pediatricians in Eastern Europe between 3 weeks and 6 months prior to their adoption. The evaluation consisted of comprehensive medical and neurodevelopmental testing on site using a battery of standardized assessment tools, and observation of free play and social interactive behaviors recorded on videotape. Laboratory tests included complete blood count, chemistries, serology screening, and metabolic and genetic testing. RESULTS: The children were growth-retarded. Medical problems were classified as resolved (pneumonia and diarrhea) in 32.8%; or ongoing, such as hepatitis B and C, failure to thrive, organomegaly, and visual and hearing disorders, in 14.8%. Neuromotor status was grossly abnormal in 13.4%. Twenty-two percent of the children were rejected for adoption by families in Israel. Factors associated with the adoption decision were performance skills on developmental testing (P = 0.0001), present medical status (P = 0.002), and weight (P = 0.016). CONCLUSIONS: Pre-placement comprehensive screening of children eligible for foreign adoption, which includes developmental screening, helps to identify a wide variety of strengths and impairments in a child's background before the adoption procedure is finalized. A family's decision to adopt or not was associated with the child's performance on Bayley Scales, weight, and current medical status, but not with language delays, serious past medical history or suspect family background.  (+info)

Teaching foster grandparents to train severely handicapped persons. (7/75)

Five foster grandparents were taught training skills for use in their daily interactions with severely handicapped persons in an institution. Following baseline, specific teaching procedures consisting of teacher instructions, prompts, modelling, and praise were implemented. The grandparents' frequency of training three skill areas increased as the specific teaching was implemented in multiple-baseline format. The total amount of training continued as teacher instructions, prompts, and modelling were terminated and praise continued, although the grandparents spent their training time emphasizing only two of the three skill areas. Teacher presence was gradually reduced over an 11-week period, with no decrease in grandparents' frequency of training. Four of the foster grandchildren, all profoundly retarded and multiply handicapped, demonstrated progress throughout the study. Results were discussed in light of the available contributions of foster grandparents in institutional settings and maintenance of staff training.  (+info)

The PedsQL Family Impact Module: preliminary reliability and validity. (8/75)

BACKGROUND: The PedsQL Measurement Model was designed to measure health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in children and adolescents. The PedsQL 4.0 Generic Core Scales were developed to be integrated with the PedsQL Disease-Specific Modules. The newly developed PedsQL Family Impact Module was designed to measure the impact of pediatric chronic health conditions on parents and the family. The PedsQL Family Impact Module measures parent self-reported physical, emotional, social, and cognitive functioning, communication, and worry. The Module also measures parent-reported family daily activities and family relationships. METHODS: The 36-item PedsQL Family Impact Module was administered to 23 families of medically fragile children with complex chronic health conditions who either resided in a long-term care convalescent hospital or resided at home with their families. RESULTS: Internal consistency reliability was demonstrated for the PedsQL Family Impact Module Total Scale Score (alpha = 0.97), Parent HRQOL Summary Score (alpha = 0.96), Family Functioning Summary Score (alpha = 0.90), and Module Scales (average alpha = 0.90, range = 0.82 - 0.97). The PedsQL Family Impact Module distinguished between families with children in a long-term care facility and families whose children resided at home. CONCLUSIONS: The results demonstrate the preliminary reliability and validity of the PedsQL Family Impact Module in families with children with complex chronic health conditions. The PedsQL Family Impact Module will be further field tested to determine the measurement properties of this new instrument with other pediatric chronic health conditions.  (+info)

Experiences of profound social deprivation during infancy shape the development of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPA) axis, an important stress response system. Specifically, children who were exposed to institutionalized care as infants show blunted cortisol reactivity to psychosocial stressors even years after being adopted into stable, supportive families. However, new evidence suggests that these effects could be reversed later in development under certain conditions.. Gunnar and colleagues tested whether post-institutionalized youth showed evidence of stress recalibration with puberty. Participants were post-institutionalized youth and comparison (never adopted) youth ages 7 to 15 at baseline. Each of three consecutive annual sessions assessed pubertal stage via physical examination and salivary cortisol reactivity to the Trier social stress test, a task designed to measure response to social evaluation, which was adapted for children. Findings revealed that ...
This cross-sectional study used interviews with over 1000 adults with learning disabilities within a defined location along with a review of their medical records. Area deprivation was defined by postcode, using Carstairs scores.. The authors found that area deprivation had no influence on access to social supports, daytime primary health-care services or hospital admissions. However, they found that people in more deprived areas made less use of secondary outpatient health care and more use of accident and emergency.. Interestingly, they also found that women living in more deprived areas were in fact more likely to have had a cervical smear.. The authors concluded that deprivation may not therefore contribute to health inequality in populations of people with learning disabilities in the same way as it does in the general population.. Neighbourhood deprivation, health inequalities and service access by adults with intellectual disabilities: a cross-sectional study, Cooper, S et al., in Journal ...

The number of vulnerable families being offered support through a family intervention project (FIP) almost doubled in the past year, according to latest figures.. Department for Education figures show that until 31 March this year 12,850 referrals had been made to services. This compares with 7,231 at the same point in 2010.. But charities involved in running such projects say funding continues to be precarious.. Action for Children have confirmed that since May 2010 five of its FIP services have closed and others are facing budget cuts.. A spokeswoman added that short-term funding continues to be a concern, with most only receiving council funding for 12 months at a time.. She said: We understand the constraints councils face but it would help if there was greater flexibility to the funding and it wasnt as short term as it is.. Barnardos, which runs 11 FIPs, is having to supplement reductions in council funding with its own funding in some areas .. Government funding for the first FIPs, ...

Alcohol dependence (AD) afflicts nearly 10% of the US population and causes marked medical morbidity and mortality, marked psychiatric morbidity, increased health care costs, and lost work hours (Saxon, Malte, Sloan, et al., 2006; McFall, Saxon, Thaneemit-Chen, et al., 2007). Alcohol dependence is a biologically, genetically based disease, yet the majority of clinically accepted treatments are behaviorally or psychosocially based (Anton, OMalley, Ciraulo, et al., 2006; Todd, Armeli, Tennen, et al., 2005). Despite the initial success of these treatments, 40-70% of patients relapse within the first 12 months after treatment (McGinnis & Foege, 1993). Research is needed to develop more effective biological treatments.. Currently, only three pharmacological treatments are FDA approved for the treatment of alcohol dependence and all are sub-optimal. None of these medications directly target noradrenergic brain systems. Recent advances in understanding the neurobiology of substance dependence and ...
Half or more of HIV transmission events may occur within the period of high infectivity (and often high risk behavior) that can last 11 months or more after a person is initially infected. Unfortunately, neither test-and-treat intervention methods nor Acute HIV Infection projects have found effective ways to intervene against transmission during this risky recent infection period. The investigators seek to develop effective intervention techniques against HIV transmission during the recent infection period using a combination of injection-, sexual- and social-network-based contact tracing methods; community alerts in the networks and venues of recent infectees; and the logic of going up and down infection chains.. The investigators first Aim is to develop and evaluate ways to locate seeds, defined as drug users and other people who have recently been infected. The investigators second Aim targets members of seeds networks and people who attend their venues. The investigators will test ...
Funding for core services is shared between the IDDRC and the other sources of support for approved projects/investigators.

A general dimensioning method and system for allocating limited transmission resources to various virtual paths defined on top of a physical network. A two-level hierarchical structure is defined with a layer of one or more virtual paths on top of a layer of physical network elements. Traffic demand is specified for each virtual path and the Entropy Rate Function is used as a blocking measure. The loads on the various links are balanced by equalizing blocking probabilities and the optimal allocation of network physical resources is determined.
Patients who utilize Glucotrol per the recommendation of a doctor must remember that this drug is not a substitute for healthy diets and adequate physical activity. Glucotrol use may cause low blood sugar. This may be avoided by maintaining a regular eating schedule and reducing alcohol consumption. In general, this medication may also cause a variety of inconvenient side effects, including diarrhea or constipation, dizziness, itching, and headaches. Other patients report drowsiness, stomach pain, and skin rashes. In rare instances, patients may experience anemia, cardiac complications, and notice a yellow tint in the eyes and skin. Always consult your doctor if these conditions persist and/or cause extreme discomfort.. The effectiveness of this drug may negatively interact with the presence of oral contraceptives, aspirin, or heart medications in the body. It is wise to consult with your medical advisor about the interaction of this drug with drugs that you may already be taking.. ...
In practice, this often means some storage capacity is orphaned, hidden and eventually becomes unused. Thin provisioning allows administrators allocate the capacity users ask for, but until they actually use it the disk space is available for other users, which stops the problem of under-utilised storage hidden away by past provisioning requests.. • Virtualisation -Storage has nearly always been considered as a physical resource, so the disks inside an array have been bound to that array. Virtualisation allows you to consider all the capacity in all your arrays as a single pool of storage. By doing so, virtualisation means you can identify unused storage capacity on arrays around your organisation and put them to work. This will often mean using underutilised capacity, which will boost utilisation rates.. • Careful procurement - Storage buyers sometimes acquire more storage than they need, either through optimism or because they are offered a good deal on lots of capacity. More careful ...
As a retrospective review of cases, there were no controls, limiting the conclusions from this study. Data recorded were variable in quality, and in particular there were only restricted data on those who were diagnosed by CSP but did not attend GUM. p Values of the univariate tests should be interpreted with caution since many tests were carried out, thereby increasing the risk of type I errors. The deprivation results and Mosaic groups should be interpreted with caution, since such area-level measures of deprivation may not represent the characteristics of individuals. An example of where area-level descriptors may be less helpful is the excess of cases of NG in those aged under 25 years (ie, a young group) in areas typified by containing more older residents (the Mosaic group M-older people reliant on state support: table 1).. Despite these limitations, we have shown that use of NAATs can greatly increase the number of NG cases detected outside of clinic settings and have obtained ...

Physical activity is a cornerstone for treatment of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), but there are limited data on their exercise behaviors. A previous study identified PCOS patients of non-White ethnicity to be at higher risk for inadequate physical activity. Further data is needed to identify groups that would benefit from additional counseling in achieving adequate physical activity (APA). Therefore, this study examined correlates of APA within a multiethnic PCOS patient population. Cross-sectional assessment of exercise behaviors within a multiethnic PCOS patient population was performed using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ). Kruskal-Wallis test was used to compare metabolic equivalents from physical activity among racial/ethnic groups. APA was defined as at least 150 min of moderate-intensity, or 75 min of vigorous-intensity, or an equivalent combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity per week. Logistic regression analyses were performed to

Ana Aslan (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈana asˈlan]; 1 January 1897 - 20 May 1988) was a Romanian biologist and physician who discovered the anti-aging effects of procaine, based on the drugs Gerovital H3 and Aslavital, which she developed. She is considered to be a pioneer of gerontology and geriatrics in Romania. In 1952, she founded the Geriatric Institute of Bucharest. This institute was the first of its kind in the world and was recognized by the World Health Organization. Although her work was controversial, it received international attention. Aslan was the youngest of four children, two brothers and two sisters, born to Margarit and Sofia Aslan. Aslan was said to be a very intellectual child, learning to read and write already by age four. At the age of 13, her father died, and her family then moved to Bucharest, Romania. It was in Bucharest where she began her studies. She graduated from the Central School of Bucharest in 1915. The premature death of her father, whom she was close to, ...

Attachment disorder in adults treatment - How long does reactive attachment disorder typically last, can you get rid of it with treatment? It can last forever. Reactive attachment process is a neurological disruption in social and self regulation created by poor infant nurturing. Individual and family therapy can help. Medications can help. However, it is not an easy thing to repair and often takes years to improve. Having healthy relationships during the rest of child and adult development will help a lot but is often not enough.

The Romanian travel problem is easily coded as a look-up table using assoc-lists. Encode the cost of traveling between two states such as Arad and Sibiu as an assoc-list with keys being a cons of the two states, e.g., (Arad . Sibiu) and value being the cost, e.g., 140. Likewise, the heuristic estimate is easily coded as a similar look-up table using a different assoc-list. In this case, the cdr of the keys will always be Bucharest as we have no data for any other potential goal state. Generating legal moves can also be done with look-up tables. As the highest connectivity states, Bucharest and Sibiu, have 4 neighbors (Bucharest has neighbors Pitesti, Fagaras, Urzeceni, and Giurgiu), you will need 4 different functions: a function to generate the first neighbor connected to a state, a function to generate the 2nd neighbor, a function to generate the 3rd neighbor and a function to generate the 4th neighbor. For many states, the third neighbor function will return nil as many states have only 2 ...
Attachment Disorder is a mental illness. It is an emotional problem that occurs in the first three years of life and causes children not to attach and bond to their primary caregiver. Without this fundamental attachment, these children often act out behaviorally and are very difficult to parent.
Children of addicted parents can develop psychological and emotional issues, such as reactive attachment disorder. Overcoming addiction is necessary to help in the recovery process of a child.
Reactive attachment disorder results from a lack of healthy relationships with caregivers in early childhood and can lead to addiction later in life.

Almost all of the Romanian children had lived in institutions where conditions were described as extremely bad, and many were severely underweight and developmentally impaired on arrival in the UK. None of the UK children suffered in this way. Examinations at ages 4 and 6 years showed a pattern of attachment problems, inattention, overactivity, quasi-autistic behaviour, and cognitive impairment in the institutionally deprived children. Emotional difficulties, peer relationship problems, and conduct problems were not more frequent in the Romanian children. Some (around 20%) of the children who spent a long time in institutions seemed unscarred.. Because influenza causes considerable morbidity in children it has been suggested that the indications for influenza vaccination might be expanded and some have considered universal vaccination.

Purpose: Sedentary behavior is common in people with stroke and has devastating impact on their health. Quantifying it is important to provide people with stroke with adequate physical behavior recommendations. Sedentary behavior can be quantified in terms of posture (sitting) or intensity (low energy expenditure). We compared the effect of different operationalizations of sedentary behavior on sedentary behavior outcomes (total time; way of accumulation) in people with stroke. Methods: Sedentary behavior was analyzed in 44 people with chronic stroke with an activity monitor that measured both body postures and movement intensity. It was operationalized as: (1) combining postural and intensity data; (2) using only postural data; (3) using only intensity data. For each operationalization, we quantified a set of outcomes. Repeated measures ANOVA and Bland-Altman plots were used to compare the operationalizations. Results: All sedentary behavior outcomes differed significantly between all ...
They really shouldve. Right? They had the time. They had the time, and the resources. They surely had the time and resources to develop technology equal to--or even SUPERIOR---to the Spanish.

They had more than enough physical resources and time to develop and even surpass anything the Spanish had. Time to develop steel, time to develop guns, time even to develop the germ theory of disease that couldve done so much to keep their entire culture from being erased ...

Network virtualization is recognized as an enabling technology for the Future Internet. Applying virtualization of network resources leads to the problem of mapping virtual resources to physical resources, known as Virtual Network Embedding (VNE). Several algorithms attempting to solve this problem have been discussed in the literature, so far. However, comparison of VNE algorithms is hard, as each algorithm focuses on different criteria. To that end, we introduce a framework to compare different algorithms according to a set of metrics, which allow to evaluate the algorithms and compute their results on a given scenario for arbitrary parameters ...
Its exactly three months to the day since I had my heart attack. What has followed has been a life-altering experience, forcing me to learn some hard lessons about life, myself and of course being a first-time entrepreneur. I have had to institute numerous behavioral changes over the past 90 days. But what I found was that some of my worst and most deep-seated habits were among the easiest to overcome - smoking, for example, as well eating a meat-rich diet and avoiding exercise. Its the little things that have proved to be a challenge.. Simplification Through Elimination I was reading a review of the Macbook Air over on Macworld when I realized that the machine and post-recovery me have a lot in common. I have to be very careful as to how I use my mental and physical resources, for there is a high risk of relapse.

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): How does one synchronize concurrent UEs which are mutually dependent on each other across phases of a computation? 2 Context Parallel algorithms divide the work into multiple, concurrent tasks. These tasks or UEs may execute in parallel depending on the physical resources available. It is common for UEs to proceed in phases where the next phase cannot start until all UEs complete the previous phase. This is typically due to mutual dependency on the data written during the previous phase by concurrent UEs. Since UEs may execute at different speeds, there is a need for UEs to wait for one another before proceeding to the next phase. Barriers are commonly used to enforce such waiting. Figure 1 illustrates how a barrier works. A UE executes its code until it reaches a barrier. Then it waits until all other UEs have reached that barrier before proceeding. Consider the Barnes-Hut [BH86] N-body simulation algorithm. This is an
