Effects of duodenal distension on antropyloroduodenal pressures and perception are modified by hyperglycemia. (1/2885)

Marked hyperglycemia (blood glucose approximately 15 mmol/l) affects gastrointestinal motor function and modulates the perception of gastrointestinal sensations. The aims of this study were to evaluate the effects of mild hyperglycemia on the perception of, and motor responses to, duodenal distension. Paired studies were done in nine healthy volunteers, during euglycemia ( approximately 4 mmol/l) and mild hyperglycemia ( approximately 10 mmol/l), in randomized order, using a crossover design. Antropyloroduodenal pressures were recorded with a manometric, sleeve-side hole assembly, and proximal duodenal distensions were performed with a flaccid bag. Intrabag volumes were increased at 4-ml increments from 12 to 48 ml, each distension lasting for 2.5 min and separated by 10 min. Perception of the distensions and sensations of fullness, nausea, and hunger were evaluated. Perceptions of distension (P < 0.001) and fullness (P < 0.05) were greater and hunger less (P < 0.001) during hyperglycemia compared with euglycemia. Proximal duodenal distension stimulated pyloric tone (P < 0.01), isolated pyloric pressure waves (P < 0.01), and duodenal pressure waves (P < 0.01). Compared with euglycemia, hyperglycemia was associated with increases in pyloric tone (P < 0.001), the frequency (P < 0.05) and amplitude (P < 0.01) of isolated pyloric pressure waves, and the frequency of duodenal pressure waves (P < 0.001) in response to duodenal distension. Duodenal compliance was less (P < 0.05) during hyperglycemia compared with euglycemia, but this did not account for the effects of hyperglycemia on perception. We conclude that both the perception of, and stimulation of pyloric and duodenal pressures by, duodenal distension are increased by mild hyperglycemia. These observations are consistent with the concept that the blood glucose concentration plays a role in the regulation of gastrointestinal motility and sensation.  (+info)

Physiological changes in blood glucose do not affect gastric compliance and perception in normal subjects. (2/2885)

Marked hyperglycemia (blood glucose approximately 14 mmol/l) slows gastric emptying and affects the perception of sensations arising from the gut. Elevation of blood glucose within the physiological range also slows gastric emptying. This study aimed to determine whether physiological changes in blood glucose affect proximal gastric compliance and/or the perception of gastric distension in the fasting state. Paired studies were conducted in 10 fasting healthy volunteers. On a single day, isovolumetric and isobaric distensions of the proximal stomach were performed using an electronic barostat while the blood glucose concentration was maintained at 4 and 9 mmol/l in random order. Sensations were quantified using visual analog scales. The blood glucose concentration had no effect on the pressure-volume relationship during either isovolumetric or isobaric distensions or the perception of gastric distension. At both blood glucose concentrations, the perceptions of fullness, nausea, bloating, and abdominal discomfort, but not hunger or desire to eat, were related to intrabag volume (P +info)

The impact of genetic counselling on risk perception and mental health in women with a family history of breast cancer. (3/2885)

The present study investigated: (1) perception of genetic risk and, (2) the psychological effects of genetic counselling in women with a family history of breast cancer. Using a prospective design, with assessment pre- and post-genetic counselling at clinics and by postal follow-up at 1, 6 and 12 months, attenders at four South London genetic clinics were assessed. Participants included 282 women with a family history of breast cancer. Outcome was measured in terms of mental health, cancer-specific distress and risk perception. High levels of cancer-specific distress were found pre-genetic counselling, with 28% of participants reporting that they worried about breast cancer 'frequently or constantly' and 18% that worry about breast cancer was 'a severe or definite problem'. Following genetic counselling, levels of cancer-specific distress were unchanged. General mental health remained unchanged over time (33% psychiatric cases detected pre-genetic counselling, 27% at 12 months after genetic counselling). Prior to their genetics consultation, participants showed poor knowledge of their lifetime risk of breast cancer since there was no association between their perceived lifetime risk (when they were asked to express this as a 1 in x odds ratio) and their actual risk, when the latter was calculated by the geneticist at the clinic using the CASH model. In contrast, women were more accurate about their risk of breast cancer pre-genetic counselling when this was assessed in broad categorical terms (i.e. very much lower/very much higher than the average woman) with a significant association between this rating and the subsequently calculated CASH risk figure (P = 0.001). Genetic counselling produced a modest shift in the accuracy of perceived lifetime risk, expressed as an odds ratio, which was maintained at 12 months' follow-up. A significant minority failed to benefit from genetic counselling; 77 women continued to over-estimate their risk and maintain high levels of cancer-related worry. Most clinic attenders were inaccurate in their estimates of the population risk of breast cancer with only 24% able to give the correct figure prior to genetic counselling and 36% over-estimating this risk. There was some improvement following genetic counselling with 62% able to give the correct figure, but this information was poorly retained and this figure had dropped to 34% by the 1-year follow-up. The study showed that women attending for genetic counselling are worried about breast cancer, with 34% indicating that they had initiated the referral to the genetic clinic themselves. This anxiety is not alleviated by genetic counselling, although women reported that it was less of a problem at follow-up. Women who continue to over-estimate their risk and worry about breast cancer are likely to go on seeking unnecessary screening if they are not reassured.  (+info)

Teenage mothers and their peers: a research challenge. (4/2885)

Abbreviated measures of food sufficiency validly estimate the food security level of poor households: measuring household food security. (5/2885)

This study was designed to develop an abbreviated method that captures both the qualitative and quantitative dimensions of household food security (HFS). Women in poor and very poor households (n = 238) in a peri-urban barrio in Caracas, Venezuela, provided data on food availability and their perception of food resource constraints and hunger experiences within the home. Socioeconomic data and food-related behavior that may predict HFS levels were gathered. On average, the top 12 food contributors of energy provided 81% and predicted more than 90% of the variation in households' total energy availability using stepwise regression analysis. On the other hand, a 4-point 12-item scale was shown to have face, content and construct validity with reiterative testing, factor analysis and a Chronbach's alpha coefficient of 0.92. Assessing predictors of energy availability together with a self-perceived HFS scale may provide a valid and reliable method for identifying and monitoring food security levels among poor urban households.  (+info)

Subjective perception of body sway. (6/2885)

OBJECTIVES AND METHOD: The relation between body sway recorded through a stabilometric platform and the subjective report of steadiness was studied in 20 young and 20 elderly subjects and 20 neuropathic and 20 parkinsonian patients standing upright. The trials were performed under two stances (feet apart, feet together) and two visual conditions (eyes open, eyes closed). At the end of each trial, subjects scored their performance on a scale from 10 (complete steadiness) to 0 (fall). RESULTS: In all subjects, independently of the stance conditions, the larger the body sway the smaller the reported score. The function best fitting this relation was linear when sway was expressed on a logarithmic scale. The scoring reproducibility proved high both within and across subjects. Despite the different body sways and scores recorded under the different visual and postural conditions (eyes closed>eyes open, feet together>feet apart) in all groups of subjects and patients, the slopes of the relations between sway and score were broadly superimposable. In the normal subjects, the scores were slightly higher during eyes open than eyes closed trials for corresponding body sways. This was interpreted as a sign of perception of greater stability when vision was allowed. Parkinsonian patients swayed to a similar extent as normal subjects, and their scores were accordingly similar, both with eyes open and eyes closed. Neuropathic patients swayed to a larger extent than normal subjects, and their scores were matched appropriately. Although the slope of their relation with eyes closed was not different from that of normal subjects, with eyes open it was steeper and similar to that with eyes closed, suggesting that these patients did not feel more stable when they could take advantage of vision. CONCLUSIONS: The subjective evaluation of body sway, irrespective of stance condition, age, neuropathy, and basal ganglia disease, reflects the actual sway, and is inversely proportional to the logarithm of the sway value. The remarkable similarity of the relation between score and sway across the various groups of subjects with eyes closed indicates a common mode of sway evaluation, possibly based on integration of several sensory inputs. All groups except neuropathic patients seem to take advantage of the redundancy of the inputs. Basal ganglia integrity does not seem to have a role in the evaluation of sway.  (+info)

Using 20 unstructured group interviews, 10 focus group discussions and 4 STD case simulations in selected sub-populations in Lusaka, we investigated lay person perspectives of STD services. The study revealed a large diversity of care options for STD in the communities, including self-care, traditional healers, medicine sold in the markets and streets, injections administered in the compounds, private clinics, health centres and hospital. The factors identified as influencing care seeking behaviour are: lay referral mechanisms, social cost, availability of care options, economics, beliefs, stigma and quality of care as perceived by the users.  (+info)

Planning with PRA: HIV and STD in a Nepalese mountain community. (8/2885)

The application of Participatory Rural Appraisal methods (PRA) to the topic of sexual health enabled us to explore key factors concerning local people's perceptions regarding HIV/AIDS and STDs and to plan collectively to address the emerging issues. Conducting the process in a gender sensitive way enabled people to feel safe enough to express their own opinions, and having gained confidence in their peer groups, to share ideas later with the whole community in a joint planning exercise. Nevertheless one group was identified as difficult to reach and whose needs could not be met in a group for reasons of confidentiality. While the methodology itself clearly has great potential in planning around specific health issues, there are, nevertheless, limitations. Although the approach and the tools used are simple and accessible, the skills needed to analyze the information are more complex and demanding. The training given did not manage to equip facilitators adequately with these analytical skills and in the future will be more experience based and geared towards developing analysis and the ability to formulate questions. In addition, since the project is not permanently resident in the area, intensive support within the District is necessary to increase the chances of sustainability.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - A qualitative study of lung cancer risk perceptions and smoking beliefs among national lung screening trial participants. AU - Park, Elyse R.. AU - Streck, Joanna M..

N2 - Introduction: The National Comprehensive Cancer Network and the American Cancer Society recently released lung screening guidelines that include smoking cessation counseling for smokers undergoing screening. Previous work indicates that smoking behaviors and risk perceptions of the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) participants were relatively unchanged. We explored American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN)/NLST former and current smokers risk perceptions specifically to (a) determine whether lung screening is a cue for behavior change, (b) elucidate risk perceptions for lung cancer and smoking-related diseases, and (c) explore ...

The objective of this study was to describe and evaluate the effects of a pilot intervention on perceived stress, knowledge about hypertension, and illness perception among hypertensive and normotensive workers. The intervention consisted of two group sessions performed in the workplace aiming to reduce stress, increase knowledge about hypertension, and explore the effect on illness perception. The sessions included clinical aspects of systemic arterial hypertension, illness perception and health behavior, and strategies for stress management. Workers from a petrochemical industry (19 hypertensive and 14 normotensive) participated in the study by answering a biosociodemographic questionnaire, the Brief Illness Perception Questionnaire, the Perceived Stress Scale, and a quiz with questions about hypertension. The measurements were collected at an initial meeting to gather the participants and 90 days after the intervention. There was a significant reduction in the perceived stress levels of both groups,
This is to elaborate on my post #14…... There are so many things going on with Covid that do not pass the sniff test, vaccination being one of them. Unfortunately, b is not helpful here.. Lets look at vaccines. A decision to get vaccinated is a matter of risk analysis. On the left-hand side is the risk of Covid and the right side is the risks posed by a vaccine. Every risk has two components - an (objective) risk profile and a (subjective) perception of risk. My objective risk from Covid depends on my age, comorbidities, lifestyle, etc. I am not young but I am healthy and have a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, my objective risk from Covid is not the highest. This will be different for different peoplw. Then there is the (subjective) perception of risk. Even if two people have similar objective risk profiles, their decisions will be different based on their perception of risk. My perception of risk from Covid is significantly lower than most other people, and thats because the risk from Covid ...
Background Illness perceptions are beliefs about the cause, nature and management of illness, which enable patients to make sense of their conditions. These perceptions can predict adjustment and quality of life in patients with single conditions. However, multimorbidity (i.e. patients with multiple long-term conditions) is increasingly prevalent and a key challenge for future health care delivery. The objective of this research was to develop a valid and reliable measure of illness perceptions for multimorbid patients. Methods Candidate items were derived from previous qualitative research with multimorbid patients. Questionnaires were posted to 1500 patients with two or more exemplar long-term conditions (depression, diabetes, osteoarthritis, coronary heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Data were analysed using factor analysis and Rasch analysis. Rasch analysis is a modern psychometric technique for deriving unidimensional and intervally-scaled questionnaires. Results
Perception may be thought of as the orientation of your internal state of mind. The common theory of perception is based on the philosophy that there is an external world that is real to which we react - however that is an Aristotlean (look him up you stupid lazy kids) dictatorship which is imposed on the masses who reside inside the educational system and have come wired up to it like humans wired up to the matrix. In reality, considering the state of perception it is perfectly possible to perceive virtually anything, and believe any construct or effect that arises from the actions which inevitably arise as consequences of those perceptions. In other words: what you believe, you become. It goes ever deeper than this, but you really do have to take the initiative and step outside of the box of your conventional thinking if you want to experience it for yourself.

We looked at all sorts of fields: education, business, mid-level management, executives and across all these settings there was either no significant difference or women were viewed as more effective. Samantha Paustian-Underdahl, assistant professor of management at Florida International University. Professor Paustian-Underdahl has conducted a meta-analysis of a large number of management studies to see if people assume men are better leaders than women. It turns out not to be the case. In fact, the perception may be just the opposite. One explanation may be the growing emphasis on teamwork and collaboration in mid-level management and that women are seen to have better people skills, something necessary to that type of management. Another perception may be that in order to reach a CEO-level position, a woman must be exceptionally talented and/or competent. Paustian-Underdahl also looked at studies in which individuals evaluated their own management skills. Women feel that they re not as ...

That situates so far -. Comment:. This poem seems to engage a number of themes Im working on in Plato and Xenophon. Philosophy involves some conception of wealth. It does not reject wealth entirely despite, at times, positing it as the heart of conventionality. Also, there is the rough idea that nothing doesnt make a lot of sense to talk about. Rather, everything is either being or image, with images, products of perception, being far more accessible than any given being.. To start: Perception of an object costs / Precise the Objects loss. This actually makes sense given the being/image dualism above. Perceive the object and what is lost is the Object itself. In obtaining a perception, one gets an image, and the Object (being) itself becomes obscure to say the least.. It follows that the Gain of Perception is just that, perception (in itself). Where things get peculiar is the idea that the something here has a price. What does it mean perception is a gain, replying to its ...

Downloadable! The damages of smoking on health have been taken more and more seriously, most relative studies focus on fields in sociology, psychology, public health or economy. The act of smoking itself satisfies the smokers need for consumption, but at the same time produces negative effect such as smoking related damages. When making a decision whether to smoke or not or how much to smoke, the decision itself is hugely swayed by the smokers own perception of risk regarding this matter. Whenever there is uncertainty involved, the decision made regarding whether to carry out the act i.e. smoking or not hugely depends upon the amount of risk perceived by each individual. Sex, age, education, health awareness and other factors affect how a perception is formed, in other words, how a belief is formed, and the forming process itself is a complex and intricate learning/evolving process. In this study, an agent-based computational model is employed to look at how a risk perception is formed and how the
Reviews the book, Human Senses and Perception by G. M. Wyburn, R. W. Pickford, and R. J. Hirst (see record 1965-00405-000). Perception involves a variety of interdependent processes that can be studied profitably from a number of different approaches. This book surveys the processes from the viewpoints of a biologist, a psychologist, and a philosopher. The authors quite rightly reject as premature any attempt to integrate their respective fields. Their aim is to provide within one cover the information that a student or researcher might wish to have concerning those aspects of the subject matter outside his special interests A multi-discipline study of the overlapping problems of perception, each discipline reflecting its own problems, methods, and concepts, can make a real contribution. To present the subject matter in proper perspective, however, one must have in mind what each discipline might offer the other as well as the central problems within each discipline. Unfortunately, the present ...
In prior posts (here and here), I have illustrated representational methods and direct methods. The illustrations were from science, because that is more public so easier to demonstrate the contrast. I believe that they illustrate well enough, the distinction between direct and indirect perception. Both aim to provide the same sort of information about the world. The method is different, though perhaps the differences are small enough to be confusing.. The primary distinction here is that direct perception is simpler and more direct, and does not rely on computation or inference. This is why I see direct perception as more likely to be what has evolved, and thus a more likely candidate for explaining human perception.. ...
Enculturation is known to shape the perception of meter in music but this is not explicitly accounted for by current cognitive models of meter perception. We hypothesize that the induction of meter is a result of predictive coding: interpreting onsets in a rhythm relative to a periodic meter facilitates prediction of future onsets. Such prediction, we hypothesize, is based on previous exposure to rhythms. As such, predictive coding provides a possible explanation for the way meter perception is shaped by the cultural environment. Based on this hypothesis, we present a probabilistic model of meter perception that uses statistical properties of the relation between rhythm and meter to infer meter from quantized rhythms. We show that our model can successfully predict annotated time signatures from quantized rhythmic patterns derived from folk melodies. Furthermore, we show that by inferring meter, our model improves prediction of the onsets of future events compared to a similar probabilistic ...
With a style that is both detailed and accessible, this new text from Johannes Zanker provides students with a solid understanding of how our sensory and perceptual systems operate, and interact with a dynamic world. It not only explains the scientific mechanisms involved, but discusses the costs and benefits of these mechanisms within an evolutionary, functional framework, to encourage important questions such as: What is a given sensory mechanism needed for? What kind of problem can it solve and what are its limitations? How does the environment determine how senses operate? How does action affect and facilitate perception? This unique, interdisciplinary framework allows students to see perceiving and acting as embedded in particular environments and directs them to think about the functional nature of these systems. The overall effect is an especially readable, authoritative text on Sensation, Perception and Action that really brings this fascinating topic to life ...

Illness (sometimes referred to as ill-health or ailment) is a state of poor health. Illness is sometimes considered another word for disease, but others maintain that fine distinctions exist. This article discusses the definition of illness as the subjective perception by a patient of an objectively defined disease. Also can be defined as flu or ill has ethier survire or minor side affects. They includ keeping you off balnce change in behavour, also mood change.. The mode of being healthy includes, as defined by the World Health Organization, a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. When these conditions are not fulfilled, then one can be considered to have an illness or be ill. Medication and the science of pharmacology is used to cure or reduce symptoms of an illness or medical conditions. Developmental disability is a term used to describe severe, lifelong disabilities attributable to mental and/or physical impairments. ...
Available NOW! (Released date: 21 September 2006. Most current version: SAM 1.01.). Introduction: The Session Analysis Machine™ (SAM™) is a sophisticated computer program designed to analyze remote-viewing data. The public release of SAM allows anyone with a computer to shift from subjective to scientific evaluations of the remote-viewing phenomenon. Now, remote viewing can be studied more objectively, and the age-old bias of rejecting remote-viewing data because the phenomenon is not supposed to exist can be abandoned with greater certainty. More specifically, SAM compares a data set derived from a remote-viewing session with another data set that is based on a target. The target is what the remote-viewer is supposed to perceive during the session. Since remote-viewing data are subjective perceptions, it is difficult for some people to evaluate how well a remote viewer is perceiving a target. SAM helps this evaluative process by reducing both the remote-viewing session and the target ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cross-generational perceptions and reactions during service recovery. AU - Kasabov, Edward. AU - Hain, Tessa. PY - 2014. Y1 - 2014. N2 - The assumptions of some service-marketing theorists have recently been questioned in analyses of disciplining and compliance - defined as service providers attempts to control interactions with customers by subtly influencing and manipulating customers choices and behaviours, based on observation and knowledge of customers. An empirical study seeks to provide a better understanding of the perceptions and reactions to disciplining and compliance by members of two significant generations: baby boomers and generation Y. Cross-generational similarities and differences in expectations of service recovery, perceptions and reactions to disciplining and compliance suggest two distinct pathways of disciplining and compliance which have been incorporated into a new model - an addition to services marketing which rarely acknowledges disciplining and ...
First, I want to start with the concept of right perception. By right I mean as accurate and as educated of a perception as possible. A whole new experience occurs when we sit back and observe our child. We have to peel away the attachments that come along with observing to get to the core of what is going on. When you observe an object such as an apple, your mind automatically forms attachments to that object, judgements. Observe it for what it is, what you see, not even what you perceive on an atomic level. Sure atoms are so compact that it makes this solid sitting in front of you. However, you are not observing this. Just like you are not observing the childs inner feelings. You are observing a reflection or opposite reaction of what is going on internally. Remember, observe it for what it is, not for what you judge it to be. That is the start to a helpful and right perception ...

Entering a building or any other spatial setting, people encounter a new spatial-material and social constellation. This constellation envelops those who enter the setting. All kinds of impressions intrude upon those who enter, thus changing the things they perceive and the way they act. Noises, light and darkness, smells, the texture of surfaces, and many other aspects of the surroundings present themselves to the perception of those who enter. However, those entering a setting bring certain intentions with them. They are involved in certain activities and they follow bodily and mental routines. Thus they also produce an envelope of their own, which regulates the distance to their surroundings, their perceptions, and their actions. In consequence, the envelope is created both by people themselves and by their surroundings. In this presentation, I will use a phenomenologically informed approach to investigate spatialized activities. Thus I will show how the process of envelopment produces social ...

When we become fixed in our perceptions we lose our ability to fly. - Mingyur Rinpoche. How a person looks at the world colors all subsequent action. If the way immediately ahead appears dark and scary, timidity and reluctance to act are the likely results. Being able to discern light amidst the darkness, however, can prove to be a motivating factor - at least to the extent that youre willing to try something new or different.. What happens when you regard life and the world around you as hopeless, miserable, one failure after another, untrustworthy, unlovable and unloved? You might find yourself retreating from others, holing up in isolation, drinking or drugging too much. You most certainly wont want to embark on a challenging project, pursue adventure, or dare to discover what youre truly made of.. Indeed, if your perception remains fixed, so will your horizon. Instead of expanding, the options available to you will appear limited, possibly pointless and a waste of time.. So much for the ...
