Comparison of active and cancer registry-based follow-up for breast cancer in a prospective cohort study. (1/10069)

The authors compared the relative effectiveness of two distinct follow-up designs in prospective cohort studies--the active approach, based on direct contact with study subjects, and the passive approach, based on record linkages with population-based cancer registries--utilizing available information from the New York University Women's Health Study (WHS) and the New York State Cancer Registry (NYSCR). The analyses were limited to breast cancer cases identified during the period 1985-1992, for which follow-up was considered reasonably complete by both the WHS and the NYSCR. Among 12,947 cohort members who reported a New York State address, 303 pathologically confirmed cases were identified through active follow-up and 284 through record linkage. Sixty-three percent of cancers were identified by both sources, 21% by the WHS only, and 16% by the NYSCR only. The agreement was appreciably better for invasive cancers. The percentage of cases identified only by the NYSCR was increased among subjects whose active follow-up was incomplete, as well as among nonwhites, obese patients, and parous patients. This suggests that relying on either type of follow-up alone may introduce certain biases in evaluating risk factors for breast cancer. Combining both approaches appears to be a better strategy in prospective cohort studies.  (+info)

Reliability of information on physical activity and other chronic disease risk factors among US women aged 40 years or older. (2/10069)

Data on chronic disease risk behaviors and related variables, including barriers to and attitudes toward physical activity, are lacking for women of some racial/ethnic groups. A test-retest study was conducted from July 1996 through June 1997 among US women (n = 199) aged 40 years or more who were white, black, American Indian/Alaska Native, or Hispanic. The sample was selected and interviews were conducted using a modified version of the methods of the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. For behavioral risk factors such as physical inactivity, smoking, and low fruit and vegetable consumption, group prevalences were generally similar between interviews 1 and 2. However, kappa values for selected physical activity variables ranged from 0.26 to 0.51 and tended to be lower for black women. Discordance was low for variables on cigarette smoking and exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (kappa = 0.64-0.92). Discordance was high (kappa = 0.33) for low consumption of fruits and vegetables. Additional variables for barriers to and access to exercise ranged widely across racial/ethnic groups and in terms of measures of agreement. These methods illustrate an efficient way to sample and assess the reliability of data collected from women of racial/ethnic minority groups.  (+info)

Where there are categorical covariates, a stratified analysis can be performed. The multinomial logit model has occasionally been used. In this paper, the authors compare log-linear and logit models with and without covariates, and use simulated data to compare estimates from different models. The crude estimate of population size is biased when the sources are not independent. Analyses adjusting for covariates produce less biased estimates. In the absence of covariates, or where all covariates are categorical, the log-linear model and the logit model are equivalent. The log-linear model cannot include continuous variables. To minimize potential bias in estimating incidence, covariates should be included in the design and analysis of multiple-source disease registries.  (+info)

Illness behaviour in elite middle and long distance runners. (4/10069)

OBJECTIVES: To examine the illness attitudes and beliefs known to be associated with abnormal illness behaviour (where symptoms are present in excess of objective signs and pathology) in elite middle and long distance runners, in comparison with non-athlete controls. METHODS: A total of 150 athletes were surveyed using the illness behaviour questionnaire as an instrument to explore the psychological attributes associated with abnormal illness behaviour. Subjects also completed the general health questionnaire as a measure of psychiatric morbidity. A control group of 150 subjects, matched for age, sex, and social class, were surveyed using the same instruments. RESULTS: A multivariate analysis of illness behaviour questionnaire responses showed that the athletes' group differed significantly from the control group (Hotelling's T: Exact F = 2.68; p = 0.01). In particular, athletes were more somatically focused (difference between means -0.27; 95% confidence interval -0.50 to -0.03) and more likely to deny the impact of stresses in their life (difference between means 0.78; 95% confidence interval 0.31 to 1.25). Athletes were also higher scorers on the Whiteley Index of Hypochondriasis (difference between means 0.76; 95% confidence interval 0.04 to 1.48). There were no differences in the levels of psychiatric morbidity between the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: The illness attitudes and beliefs of athletes differ from those of a well matched control population. The origin of these psychological attributes is not clear but those who treat athletes need to be aware of them.  (+info)

Rider injury rates and emergency medical services at equestrian events. (5/10069)

BACKGROUND: Horse riding is a hazardous pastime, with a number of studies documenting high rates of injury and death among horse riders in general. This study focuses on the injury experience of cross country event riders, a high risk subset of horse riders. METHOD: Injury data were collected at a series of 35 equestrian events in South Australia from 1990 to 1998. RESULTS: Injury rates were found to be especially high among event riders, with frequent falls, injuries, and even deaths. The highest injury rates were among the riders competing at the highest levels. CONCLUSION: There is a need for skilled emergency medical services at equestrian events.  (+info)

The effect of race and sex on physicians' recommendations for cardiac catheterization. (6/10069)

BACKGROUND: Epidemiologic studies have reported differences in the use of cardiovascular procedures according to the race and sex of the patient. Whether the differences stem from differences in the recommendations of physicians remains uncertain. METHODS: We developed a computerized survey instrument to assess physicians' recommendations for managing chest pain. Actors portrayed patients with particular characteristics in scripted interviews about their symptoms. A total of 720 physicians at two national meetings of organizations of primary care physicians participated in the survey. Each physician viewed a recorded interview and was given other data about a hypothetical patient. He or she then made recommendations about that patient's care. We used multivariate logistic-regression analysis to assess the effects of the race and sex of the patients on treatment recommendations, while controlling for the physicians' assessment of the probability of coronary artery disease as well as for the age of the patient, the level of coronary risk, the type of chest pain, and the results of an exercise stress test. RESULTS: The physicians' mean (+/-SD) estimates of the probability of coronary artery disease were lower for women (probability, 64.1+/-19.3 percent, vs. 69.2+/-18.2 percent for men; P<0.001), younger patients (63.8+/-19.5 percent for patients who were 55 years old, vs. 69.5+/-17.9 percent for patients who were 70 years old; P<0.001), and patients with nonanginal pain (58.3+/-19.0 percent, vs. 64.4+/-18.3 percent for patients with possible angina and 77.1+/-14.0 percent for those with definite angina; P=0.001). Logistic-regression analysis indicated that women (odds ratio, 0.60; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 0.9; P=0.02) and blacks (odds ratio, 0.60; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 0.9; P=0.02) were less likely to be referred for cardiac catheterization than men and whites, respectively. Analysis of race-sex interactions showed that black women were significantly less likely to be referred for catheterization than white men (odds ratio, 0.4; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.2 to 0.7; P=0.004). CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that the race and sex of a patient independently influence how physicians manage chest pain.  (+info)

A comparative analysis of surveyors from six hospital accreditation programmes and a consideration of the related management issues. (7/10069)

PURPOSE: To gather data on how accreditors manage surveyors, to compare these data and to offer them to the accreditors for improvement and to the scientific community for knowledge of the accreditation process and reinforcement of the credibility of these processes. DATA SOURCE: The data were gathered with the aid of a questionnaire sent to all accreditors participating in the study. RESULTS: An important finding in this comparative study is the different contractual relationships that exist between the accreditors and their surveyors. CONCLUSION: Surveyors around the world share many common features in terms of careers, training, work history and expectations. These similarities probably arise from the objectives of the accreditors who try to provide a developmental process to their clients rather than an 'inspection'.  (+info)

Antimicrobial drug use and related management practices among Ontario swine producers. (8/10069)

A mail survey of swine producers in Ontario was undertaken during 1991 to describe the types, frequency, and motives for antimicrobial use. Two hundred operations that marketed fewer than 350 hogs per year, and 800 that marketed more than 350 per year were sent questionnaires, 63% of which were completed and returned. Most operations (86%) added antimicrobials to starter (weanling pig) rations, while fewer (29%) added these drugs to finisher pig rations. The most commonly used antimicrobials were tylosin, carbadox, and furazolidone in weanling pigs, and tylosin, lincomycin, and tetracycline in finishers. Water medication of grower-finisher pigs was practised on 25% of farms; 80% of farms had injected at least some grower-finisher pigs with antimicrobials in the 12 mo preceding the survey. Approximately 20% of operations that added antimicrobials to finisher rations did so for growth promotion purposes only, while others used them for disease treatment, prevention, control, or a combination of reasons. Among those not using antimicrobials in finisher rations, 83% did not believe they were necessary and 37% were concerned about the potential for residues in marketed hogs.  (+info)

Data on LGBT program recipients could reveal disparities in how these HHS programs-which provide a critical safety net for to seniors and people with disabilities-serve LGBT people, potentially indicating discrimination or other barriers to access in the programs. By rolling back data collection, the Department of Health and Human Services is throwing away the tools to ensure the department reaches vulnerable LGBT people in programs ranging from home delivered meals and senior center group meals, to transportation, caregiver support, and health promotion services.. Federal data collection on LGBT people is already scarce, but rolling back collection on crucial safety net programs is particularly disturbing. LGBT people experience overt and systematic discrimination across all areas of life-from education to housing, healthcare, employment, and the public square. As a result, LGBT people face acute levels of income insecurity, making it particularly important that federal safety net programs meet ...

Introduction Individual-level immunization data captured electronically can facilitate evidence-based decision-making and planning. Populating individual-level records through manual data entry is time-consuming. An alternative is to use scannable forms, completed at the point of vaccination and subsequently scanned and exported to a database or registry. To explore the suitability of this approach for collecting immunization data, we conducted a feasibility study in two settings in Ontario, Canada. Methods and Findings Prior to the 2011-2012 influenza vaccination campaign, we developed a scannable form template and a corresponding database that captured required demographic and clinical data elements. We examined efficiency, data quality, and usability through time observations, record audits, staff interviews, and client surveys. The mean time required to scan and verify forms (62.3 s) was significantly shorter than manual data entry (69.5 s) in one organization, whereas there was no difference (36
There have been dramatic advances in the development of web-based data collection instruments. This paper outlines a systematic web-based approach to facilitate this process through locally developed code and to describe the results of using this process after two years of data collection. We provide a detailed example of a web-based method that we developed for a study in Starr County, Texas, assessing high school students work and health status. This web-based application includes data instrument design, data entry and management, and data tables needed to store the results that attempt to maximize the advantages of this data collection method. The software also efficiently produces a coding manual, web-based statistical summary and crosstab reports, as well as input templates for use by statistical packages. Overall, web-based data entry using a dynamic approach proved to be a very efficient and effective data collection system. This data collection method expedited data processing and analysis and

The Surveillance Programme of IN-patients and Epidemiology (SPINE), an unrelated system to the one set up in the UK, records information through touch-screen terminals located in the hospital adult internal medical wards. The electronic system is a £200,000 investment that took 8 months to develop and 3 months to implement, including sensitization and training. Coding is based on open source software named Ruby ( and therefore allows the sharing of software packages created in different hospitals and from different initiatives at no added cost. The screens are generated from standard HTML web forms using the touch-screen Toolkit. The electronic medical record (EMR) is a password-protected web-based application developed using completely open source platforms. SPINE is connected to the ARV clinic system, enabling patients registered in either system to be recognized by both. When a patient is discharged from hospital a member of the clinical team looking after the ...
While data are essential to behavior analysis, collecting the type of data that behavior analysts often require can be a labor-intensive and time-consuming task. There have been many attempts to reduce the amount of time and effort required to collect behavioral data; most research in this area has been focused on computerized or electronic ways to do this (Dixon, 2003). While electronic data collection seems to be gaining popularity within applied behavior analysis, many obstacles still exist. The purpose of this project was to design a data collection system that is cost-efficient, adaptable, easy to use, and effective at increasing data collection adherence. All the programmed technology used in this study is free and can be downloaded onto any device that runs Apple iOS, Google Android, or Microsoft Windows.

Background: Periodic demographic health surveillance and surveys are the main sources of health information in developing countries. Conducting a survey requires extensive use of paper-pen and manual work and lengthy processes to generate the required information. Despite the rise of popularity in using electronic data collection systems to alleviate the problems, sufficient evidence is not available to support the use of electronic data capture (EDC) tools in interviewer-administered data collection processes. Objective: This study aimed to compare data quality parameters in the data collected using mobile electronic and standard paper-based data capture tools in one of the health and demographic surveillance sites in northwest Ethiopia. Methods: A randomized controlled crossover health care information technology evaluation was conducted from May 10, 2016, to June 3, 2016, in a demographic and surveillance site. A total of 12 interviewers, as 2 individuals (one of them with a tablet computer and the

Background There is stigma attached to the identification of residents carrying antimicrobial resistant organisms (ARO) in long term care homes, yet there is a need to collect data about their prevalence for public health surveillance and intervention purposes. Objective We conducted a point prevalence study to assess ARO rates in long term care homes in Ontario using a secure data collection system. Methods All long term care homes in the province were asked to provide colonization or infection counts for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), and extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) as recorded in their electronic medical records, and the number of current residents. Data was collected online during the October-November 2011 period using a Paillier cryptosystem that allows computation on encrypted data. Results A provably secure data collection system was implemented. Overall, 82% of the homes in the province responded. MRSA was the most

0073] To detect and remove the guide wire and other similar artifacts from the image, an ellipse is fitted to the foreground of a median mask (shown in FIG. 11a). The area inside of the ellipse is then blanked to remove any small disconnected regions as shown in FIG. 11B. Applying the resulting mask to the OCT image, the average intensity value along each scan line of the masked OCT image is calculated (shown in FIG. 11c as a plurality of scan lines of varying shading). The guide wire shadow is then identified via the use of a suitable gradient filter, such as the Sobel edge detector and the guide wire offset (its radial distance from the catheter) is detected inside the guide wire shadow region. Shadows from other sources such as stent struts and residual blood are also detected and need to be delineated from the guide wire shadow. The midpoints of all detected shadow regions on all frames is then collected and used as nodes to build a minimum spanning tree. In one embodiment of the invention, ...

STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: A detailed microcosting study was used to cost two key inputs into transfusion: transfusion laboratory and nursing inputs. For each input, data collection forms were developed to capture staff time, equipment, and consumables associated with each step in the transfusion process. Costing results were combined with costs of blood product wastage to calculate the cost per unit transfused, separately for different blood products. Data were collected in 2014/15 British pounds and converted to US dollars.. RESULTS: A total of 438 data collection forms were completed by 74 staff. The cost of administering blood was $71 (£49) per unit for red blood cells, $84 (£58) for platelets, $55 (£38) for fresh-frozen plasma, and $72 (£49) for cryoprecipitate.. CONCLUSIONS: Blood administration costs add substantially to the costs of the blood products themselves. These are frequently incurred costs; applying estimates to the blood components supplied to UK hospitals in 2015, the ...
A blood component collection system with optimization capabilities. In one embodiment, process parameters are derived from an input/configured predetermined blood component yield and which is based upon the maximization of at least one process parameter. Thereafter, the blood component collection procedure is performed with these derived process control parameters. In another embodiment, process parameters are derived from an input total procedure time from a maximized value for at least one of the other process control parameters so as to maximize blood component yield in this fixed time. Thereafter, the blood component collection procedure is performed with these derived parameters.
The National Household Education Survey (NHES) series reports information on the condition of education in the United States by collecting data at the household level rather than using a traditional school-based data collection system. The surveys attempt to address many current issues in education, such as preprimary education, school safety and discipline, adult education, and activities related to citizenship. This survey included two topical survey components: Parent/Family Involvement in Education (PFI) and Adult and Youth Civic Involvement (CI). The PFI component, which elicited information from parents and children aged 3 years through grade 12, focused on four areas: types and frequency of family involvement in childrens schools, communication with teachers or other school personnel, childrens homework and behavior, and learning activities with children outside of school. Other information collected for this component pertained to student experiences at school, childrens personal and ...
Abstract The limited availability of Hispanic health data has hampered the development of targeted public health policies. Hispanics represent 11.5 percent of the population and are projected to become the largest minority group in the United States by the year 2010. This paper explores current issues in Hispanic health data collection, examines methodological concerns, and presents recommendations for future Hispanic public health data collection. Data are derived from statistical reports of the U.S. Bureau of the Census, National Center for Health Statistics, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and other empirical studies. Recommendations include: collecting both race and ethnic-specific data by Hispanic subgroup, designing appropriate data collection instruments and approaches, and selecting referent groups for comparison purposes. The authors conclude that the renewed national focus on health disparities among underserved populations requires an increased commitment to adequately identify Hispanic ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - What micronutrient deficiencies should be considered in distinct neurological disorders? Topical collection on nutrition and obesity. AU - Maxwell IV, Pinckney J.. AU - Montgomery, Stephanie C.. AU - Cavallazzi, Rodrigo. AU - Martindale, Robert. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - The expanding understanding of the biochemical and physiologic role of micronutrients, commonly referred to as vitamins and minerals, is driving the identification of their consequences in both deficiency and toxicity. Neural tissue is quite sensitive to physiologic changes, and as such, micronutrient deficiencies can have significant and profound effects on the functioning of both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Understanding which micronutrients can affect the nervous system can aid physician identification of these neurological symptoms and signs, leading to diagnostic testing and appropriate therapy.. AB - The expanding understanding of the biochemical and physiologic role of micronutrients, ...

In qualitative research, the researcher is the primary data collection instrument. Qualitative research involves data collected from participant observations, interviews, questionnaires, phone calls, focus groups etc. Interviewing, focus groups, and participant observation are common modes of qualitative data gathering.[4] Interviews are used in most types of qualitative research. Participant observation is a method particularly employed by ethnographers in the anthropological tradition.[4] It is used to learn about the naturally occurring routines, interactions and practices of a particular group of people in their social environments, and so to understand their culture.[4] When a researcher becomes a part of the participants in the situation under observation, it is called a participant observer. Furthermore, qualitative data can be used to strengthen quantitative research designs in general and intervention research designs (i.e., experimental, quasi-experimental) in particular.[7] For ...
This study investigated the participation of secondary school administrators in school safety and implementation of safety policies with regard to physical infrastructure and waste disposal in some selected public schools in Kenya. The study adopted a descriptive survey research design; purposive sampling was used to select the respondents comprising of school administrators i.e. 35 Head Teachers (HT), 28 Deputy Head Teachers (DHT) and 12 Head of Departments (HOD) drawn from 75 public secondary schools and 3 Quality Assurance and Standards officers (QASO) as key informants. Data collection instruments included head teachers and QASOs questionnaires, interview schedules and observation schedule. Data collected was analyzed by use of descriptive statistics and presented in tables. The study found out that only 20% of the schools had constituted safety sub-committees, none (0%) of the HTs and DHTs served as secretary or member of the sub-committee respectively as required by policy. All respondents ...

REMOTE HEALTH MONITORING SYSTEM - A data collection system collects and stores physiological data from an ambulatory patient at a high resolution and/or a high data rate (more detailed data) and sends a low-resolution and/or downsampled version of the data (less detailed data) to a remote server via a wireless network. The server automatically analyzes the less detailed data to detect an anomaly, such as an arrhythmia. A two-tiered analysis scheme is used, where the first tier is more sensitive and less specific than the second tier. If the more sensitive analysis detects or suspects the anomaly, the server signals the data collector to send more detailed data that corresponds to a time period associated with the anomaly. The more specific second tier analyses the more detailed data to verify the anomaly. The server may also store the received data and make it available to a user, such as via a graphical or tabular display ...

The clinic was evaluated and results showed the clinic met or exceeded identified goals. The clinic was evaluated by the Center for Community Health and Evaluation (CCHE) at Group Health Research Institute. The CCHE developed the evaluation plan and logic model, designed data collection tools, recruited evaluation volunteers, oversaw data collection efforts, administered a survey, and analyzed survey and clinic data. Primary data sources included patient surveys, volunteer surveys, and a web application that tracked services access and patient and volunteer numbers. Evaluation activities focused on two main aspects of the clinic due to limited resources: the patient experience and the volunteer experience. Overall 98% of patients surveyed were satisfied with the care they received and 96% of volunteers were satisfied with their experience. The following discussion references data from 2014 only, as the evaluation of the 2015 clinic has not yet been completed. Clinic achievements as reflected in ...
Communicative competence is one of the major goals which learners of English language seek to achieve. The aim of the present study is to explore the level of communicative competence among English majors in the Faculty of Education in Hodeidah University in Yemen. The participants in this study are third and fourth year students in the English department of the Faculty of Education. The data collection instrument was an Informal ESOL Speaking Assessment Test by Susan Bubp (2007) a coordinator in Adult Education Mini- Grant Projects. The findings of the study reveal that the students in the advanced levels in the Faculty of Education have a very poor degree of communicative competence in English language. Based on the findings the study suggests some pedagogical implications to improve the communicative competence of English majors ...

The device includes structure for safely securing transparent specimen containers in a hands-free condition on the device and structure for selectively illuminating one or more of the specimen containers by a light source directing light upwardly through the specimen container so that a person looking from a position above the specimen container can readily visualize the presence and quality of a minuscule tissue sample.
Aim: This study aimed to develop an instrument to assess consumer attitude toward new foods. Methods: This was a descriptive study. The five-point Likert-type scale comprised three subscales and 25 items. In the study, the Demographic Information Form, the Scale for Attitude toward New Foods (SATNF) and the Innovativeness Scale (IS) were used as data collection instruments. Study group: The study sample comprised 300 respondents selected with convenience sampling. The results of the factor analysis performed to test construct validity yielded item factor loadings varying between 0.32 and 0.70 while Cronbachs alpha values for the skepticism, innovativeness and traditionalism subscales were computed as 0.74, 0.80 and 0.72, respectively. The applicability of factor analysis to the data structure was tested with a Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin test (0.76) and a Bartletts test of sphericity (X-2 = 1855.123; p< 0.000). Results and Discussion: The findings indicated that the scale was a valid and reliable ...
Both bivariate and multivariate analytic approaches were used to examine 2010 NAMCS data in order to answer the research question. The NAMCS was designed and is used to collect data on the actual use and provision of ambulatory care services throughout the US. A national sample of ambulatory care visits are surveyed in order to collect the data. A complex four-stage probability sampling design is employed in the data collection process. A description of the sampling strategy is discussed elsewhere [25]. Because they were the most recently available data at the onset of this study, the 2010 NAMCS data were used. These data are weighted, by the survey designers, to be nationally representative of patient health records.. As recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), all analyses were performed on weighted data. The weighting, as calculated, uses the most recently available census data to provide a stratified representation of ...
What does this mean and reasons for caution?. It is likely that the improvement in survival reported in the UK CF Registry from 2007 to 2010 represented the improvement in survival among people with typical CF who are pancreatic insufficient. This suggests a true improvement in survival, rather than just an effect of including more people in the registry with more mild disease. Along with the findings of another study that the median age of death among people with CF is improving more rapidly than that of the general population, this should engender hope among the CF population. However, only data for four years were analysed and this analysis may be affected by the improvement of the data collection system.. ...

The Canberra Hospital is a Level 1 Trauma Centre which treats approximately 4000 fracture trauma cases per year. The cost of this service exceeds $55 million per annum with a staff compliment of 12 VMOs, 13 registrars and 6 interns. The treatment data for these patients is curated within the medical record in a way which is difficult/time consuming to retrieve and often inaccurately coded. Further there is no facility to evaluate patient outcomes except in cases of complaint. Therefore the utility of this record for evaluation and research is minimal.. Canberra Hospital is not alone in this. It is well recognized that there is an urgent need for precise, intuitive and clinically meaningful data collection instruments which engage the clinician and inform the administration. It is on this background that iFracture was built.. The longitudinal measurement of patient-reported outcomes is a common currency by which treatment efficacy can be measured across a number of clinical disciplines. By ...
INTRODUCTION. Given the large number of alterations that can be found in the oral mucosa of children, we must be able to detect these lesions, perform a correct diagnosis and apply the appropriate treatment (1). Inadequate behaviour in the conventional examination of the oral mucosa and in the differential diagnosis of lesions found can lead to important lesions being overlooked and to the indication of inappropriate treatment (2).. Studies on this issue in children are very scarce, unlike epidemiological studies on caries and periodontal disease. Despite the efforts made by different groups, development of an appropriate data collection system is hampered by a series of methodological problems that have yet to be resolved. Moreover, in Spain there has been an almost complete absence of epidemiological studies that specifically address the prevalence of oral lesions in children, except for a study in Oviedo on a population of six-year-olds.. PREVALENCE STUDIES OF MUCOSAL LESIONS IN ...
This pilot-scale experiment was performed in the sand pit area at the University of Waterloo Groundwater Research Facility at CFB Borden located near Alliston, ON. A multicomponent PHC source zone (3 m x 3 m) was emplaced in 2012 between 1 and 3 m below ground surface inside a sheet pile walled experimental gate. Simulation tools were used to design an optimal sulfate dosage system that would satisfy the reagent delivery and remediation requirements. Three episodes of sulfate release (5 m3 of 5-20 g/L Na2SO4, and 0.3 g/L (NH4)2SO4) at the ground surface were conducted over an 8-month period. A host of multilevel monitoring wells in conjunction with a real-time resistivity data collection system was employed to continuously track sulfate patterns and migration. Treatment performance was evaluated based on changes in sulfate concentration in the plume and PHC mass discharge across a downgradient monitoring fence line. Results from compound specific isotope analysis (CSIA) and biomarker tools were ...

The present invention relates to a wetness monitoring system that includes a data collection device that sends wetness measurement data to a central computer that detects changes in wetness measurement data caused by the presence of urine or other dielectric fluids. The data collection device includes a semi-reusable sensor and reusable data collector that are worn on a garment of the person. The data collector includes an internal power source so that the person can live a normal ambulatory life. The data collector has an electrical circuit that uses the changing resistance characteristics in the sensor to gather wetness measurement data. The data collector periodically generates and transmits a signal containing the actual wetness measurement data. The signals are coded to identify the particular data collector or person sending the signal. The data collector is programmed to conserve power by sending signals less frequently during periods when the sensor is clearly dry. Signals are sent more

Moreover, this is still a simplified example. We have thus far only talked about my measurement error. There are all sorts of external sources of variation that insert themselves into the system. What if I randomly sampled the light sensor across the year to collect data on baseline light levels when the lamp is on and off? Then there are new conditions, new sources of uncertainty.. Recall that I previously collected light data when the lamp is on and off, in order to operationalize and quantify what I consider dark and not dark, on a May Tuesday at 4pm. My statistical inference is based on whether my current light data is improbably larger than would be expected assuming the light measure is under the operationalized dark regime. But across multiple data collections, there can be several random sources of light variation that are irrelevant to my question, but nevertheless affect my data collection process.. If I collected light data across multiple rooms, multiple days, multiple seasons, ...
Web-based surveys hold promise. Among the many advantages Web-based surveys bring are rapid return of data, reduced effort in data handling, and potentially lower study costs. With convenience come caveats. The most important caveat is that there are challenges calculating response rates and generalizing findings from data collected in an open Web-based survey. In theory, when performing an open Web-based survey every Web browsing person who sees the survey and does not complete it is a nonrespondent, so keeping track of every visitor may indicate phenomenally low response rates. Another problem with open Web-based surveys is that the results of open Web-based surveys are not generalizable to the general population. Surveys posted on the Web are not viewed by the general population but rather a self-selected group of Web users, and, according to much research, Web users are significantly different in many ways from non-Web users. Further complicating results, those Web users who arrive at the ...
