Preliminary report: symptoms associated with mobile phone use. (1/1291)

Mobile phone use is ubiquitous, although the alleged health effects of low level radio-frequency radiation (RFR) used in transmission are contentious. Following isolated reports of headache-like symptoms arising in some users, a survey has been conducted to characterize the symptoms sometimes associated with mobile phone usage. A notice of interest in cases was placed in a major medical journal and this was publicized by the media. Respondents were interviewed by telephone using a structured questionnaire. Forty respondents from diverse occupations described unpleasant sensations such as a burning feeling or a dull ache mainly occurring in the temporal, occipital or auricular areas. The symptoms often began minutes after beginning a call, but could come on later during the day. The symptoms usually ceased within an hour after the call, but could last until evening. Symptoms did not occur when using an ordinary handset, and were different from ordinary headaches. There were several reports suggestive of intra-cranial effects. Three respondents reported local symptoms associated with wearing their mobile phone on their belts. There was one cluster of cases in a workplace. Seventy-five per cent of cases were associated with digital mobile phones. Most of the respondents obtained relief by altering their patterns of telephone usage or type of phone. Cranial and other diverse symptoms may arise associated with mobile phone usage. Physicians and users alike should be alert to this. Further work is needed to determine the range of effects, their mechanism and the possible implications for safety limits of RFR.  (+info)

Trends in body weight among American Indians: findings from a telephone survey, 1985 through 1996. (2/1291)

OBJECTIVES: This study compared trends in body mass index for American Indian men and women across selected regions of the United States. METHODS: Self-reported data were collected from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. RESULTS: Among women in the Dakotas, New Mexico and Arizona, and Washington and Oregon, average adjusted body mass index increased significantly by 0.1 to 0.2 units per year. Among men in Alaska and the Dakotas, average adjusted body mass index also increased significantly by 0.1 to 0.2 units each year. CONCLUSIONS: Because of rapid increases in average body mass index, some American Indian populations could be burdened by an increased incidence of chronic disease.  (+info)

Disease management interventions to improve outcomes in congestive heart failure. (3/1291)

This study is part of a planned 24-month, multicenter, longitudinal comparison of a comprehensive congestive heart failure (CHF) disease management program and was designed to determine effectiveness after 12 months of implementation. The impact of interventions such as telemonitoring of patients, post-hospitalization follow-up, and provider education on selected primary outcomes (hospital admission and readmission rates, length of stay, total hospital days, and emergency room utilization) in a managed care setting was evaluated. Subjects in the study included all participants in the managed care plan, as well as 149 selected program participants. The effects of the program were analyzed for pure CHF and CHF-related diagnoses, with outcomes for the third quarter of 1996 (postintervention follow-up) being compared with those for the third quarter of 1995 (preintervention baseline). Overall, the data demonstrated significantly reduced admission and readmission rates for patients with the pure CHF diagnosis. Among the entire CHF patient population, the third quarter admission rate declined 63% (P = 0.00002), and the 30-day and 90-day readmission rates declined 75% (P = 0.02) and 74% (P = 0.004), respectively. Among program participants with pure CHF diagnoses, the 30-day readmission rate was reduced to 0, and an 83% reduction occurred for both the third quarter admission (P = 0.008) and 90-day readmission (P = 0.06) rates. In addition, the average length of stay for patients with CHF-related diagnoses was significantly reduced among both plan participants (P = 0.03) and program participants (P = 0.001). Reductions were also seen in total hospital days and emergency room utilization. These data thus indicate that a comprehensive disease management program can reduce healthcare utilization not only among CHF patients in the program but also among the entire managed care plan population.  (+info)

Episodes of illness and access to care in the inner city: a comparison of HMO and non-HMO populations. (4/1291)

Using data from a 1974 household survey, accessibility to ambulatory care is compared for residents of an inner-city area (East Baltimore) whose usual source of care is an HMO (the East Baltimore Medical Plan) and residents of the same area with other usual sources of care. Accessibility is measured by the probability of receiving care for an episode of illness. Results from multivariate linear and probit regressions indicate that children using the HMO are more likely to receive care than are children with other usual care sources, but no significant differences in the probability of receiving care are found among adults. Evidence of a substitution of telephone care for in-person care is also found among persons using the HMO. Data from a 1971 household survey of the same area suggest that selectivity is not an important confounding factor in the analysis.  (+info)

Provision of telephone advice from accident and emergency departments: a national survey. (5/1291)

This study sought to gain a national picture of the provision of telephone advice using a postal survey of senior nurses from accident and emergency (A&E) and minor injury units (MIUs). In all, 268/313 (85%) of hospitals/units responded. The average number of calls reported as received per day was 15.5 (median 12; quartiles 6, 20) for weekdays and 21.0 (median 17; quartiles 10, 29) for weekends. Most (89%) viewed the provision of telephone advice as an important component of their work, but few units offered staff training for this role or had implemented protocols or guidelines. Only 5.4% units included the number of calls received in their department in their workload figures, but 91.9% felt that they should be. Extrapolation of the data from this study to all 313 A&E and MIUs in the UK suggests that just under two million calls for telephone advice are currently made to units each year. Recognition and formalization of this aspect of work is likely to be of increasing importance given the constraints on services and the need to manage demand effectively. Future integration of A&E telephone advice calls with NHS Direct should be considered as a means of managing demand and avoiding duplication of service provision.  (+info)

Can patients predict which consultations can be dealt with by telephone? (6/1291)

The use of telephone consultations to reduce the workload of general practitioners is well established both in this country and abroad. The principal aim of this study was to discover the proportion of consultations currently carried out in the surgery that would be suitable, for both doctor and patient, to be managed over the telephone. The second aim was to establish what proportion of such consultations could be predicted.  (+info)

Prevention of relapse in women who quit smoking during pregnancy. (7/1291)

OBJECTIVES: This study is an evaluation of relapse prevention interventions for smokers who quit during pregnancy. METHODS: Pregnant smokers at 2 managed care organizations were randomized to receive a self-help booklet only, prepartum relapse prevention, or prepartum and postpartum relapse prevention. Follow-up surveys were conducted at 28 weeks of pregnancy and at 8 weeks, 6 months, and 12 months postpartum. RESULTS: The pre/post intervention delayed but did not prevent postpartum relapse to smoking. Prevalent abstinence was significantly greater for the pre/post intervention group than for the other groups at 8 weeks (booklet group, 30%; prepartum group, 35%; pre/post group, 39%; P = .02 [different superscripts denote differences at P < .05]) and at 6 months (booklet group, 26%, prepartum group, 24%; pre/post group, 33%; P = .04) postpartum. A nonsignificant reduction in relapse among the pre/post group contributed to differences in prevalent abstinence. There was no difference between the groups in prevalent abstinence at 12 months postpartum. CONCLUSIONS: Relapse prevention interventions may need to be increased in duration and potency to prevent post-partum relapse.  (+info)

Responding to out-of-hours demand: the extent and nature of urgent need. (8/1291)

BACKGROUND: Little research has been undertaken concerning GPs' perceptions about urgent or 'appropriate' out-of-hours demand. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to measure GPs' perceptions about patients' need for urgent out-of-hours general medical help according to indicators of physical, psychological/emotional and social need, and the medical necessity of a home visit. METHODS: Twenty-five practices participated in an audit and research study whereby GPs completed an audit form for all contacts during November/December 1995 and February/March 1996. Each contact was assessed according to the indicators of urgent need and GPs commented on reasons for making such assessments. RESULTS: Audit forms were completed on 1862 patients, and GPs considered that 66.6% (1027) of contacts had either a physically, psychologically/emotionally or socially urgent need for help and were uncertain about a further 10.7% (165). Over half (53.0%) were considered to have an urgent physical need, almost one-third (31.0%) to have an urgent psychological/emotional need and 10.1% (119) to have an urgent social need for help. Over half (55.2%) of visits were considered to be medically necessary, the majority of which (89.9%) were assessed as having an urgent physical need for help. CONCLUSIONS: The findings raise questions about the strategic direction of newer forms of service delivery (GP Co-operatives) and suggest the need for further research to inform the strategic reduction in home visiting, particularly in inner-city areas where many residents have little access to transport out-of-hours to enable them to attend a primary care centre. GP co-operatives are, however, well placed to improve interagency working and cross-referral to other health and social service personnel, and respond more 'appropriately' to some psychological/emotional and social problems.  (+info)

Background Fear of recurrence (FoR) is a major concern for patients following treatment for primary breast cancer, affecting 60-99% of breast cancer survivors. Mini-AFTER is a brief intervention developed to address this fear, that breast care nurses are ideally placed to deliver. However, their interest in delivering such an intervention is unknown and crucial to its introduction. This study aims to assess the perceived feasibility of the Mini-AFTER telephone intervention for implementation by breast care nurses to manage moderate levels of fear of recurrence among breast cancer survivors. Methods A sequential explanatory mixed-methods design will be used, informed by normalisation process theory (NPT). The design will be guided by the stages of NPT. Specifically, understanding and evaluating the process (implementation) that would enable an intervention, such as the Mini-AFTER, not only to be operationalised and normalised into everyday work (embedded) but also sustained in practice ...
According to a 2004 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), by December, 2003, more than 57,000 people in the United States were 55 years of age or older when they were diagnosed with AIDS. Furthermore, the CDC predicts that, by 2015, 50% of all cases of HIV/AIDS in the U.S. will occur in people 50 years of age or over. HIV infected older adults tend to experience elevated levels of depression and suicidal ideation, confront complex barriers to medical and mental health services, and lack social support resources. Unfortunately, very few interventions are available to improve quality of life in older adults living with HIV/AIDS. Moreover, many older adults with HIV/AIDS do not receive adequate treatment because of geographic isolation, physical limitations, or confidentiality concerns. A therapy program administered via the telephone may be a more accessible option for this population. This study will evaluate the effectiveness of a telephone-delivered coping improvement ...

Lack of adherence to recommended treatment for obstructive sleep apnea remains an ongoing public health challenge. Despite evidence that continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is effective and improves overall quality of life, adherence with the use of CPAP in certain racial/ethnic groups, especially blacks, is suboptimal. Evidence indicates that the incidence and prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea are higher among blacks, relative to whites, and blacks are less likely to adhere to recommended treatment compared with other racial/ethnic groups. Using a two-arm randomized controlled design, this study will evaluate the effectiveness of a culturally and linguistically tailored telephone-delivered intervention to promote adherence to physician-recommended sleep apnea assessment and treatment among blacks with metabolic syndrome, versus an attention-control arm. The intervention is designed to foster adherence to recommended sleep apnea care using the stages-of-change model. The intervention will be
In general, in one aspect, a computer-implemented method for establishing multiple communication channels between a service provider and a consumer includes establishing a text based communication between the consumer and the service provider over the Internet. The method also includes receiving, at a central system, a first telephone number provided by the consumer via a first user interface and a second telephone number provided by the service provider via a second user interface. The method also includes calling, from the central system, the first telephone number and the second telephone number and bridging the calls between the central system and the first telephone number and the central system and the second telephone number to establish a communication channel between the service provider and the consumer.

Since the reorganization of the telephone system in 1995, Dutch geographical numbers consist of 9 digits. The numbering plan implements a system of area codes. An area code consists of two or three digits. The larger cities and areas have two digits with a subscriber number of seven digits, permitting more local numbers. Smaller areas use three digits with a six-digit subscriber number. Geographic numbers are allocated in blocks to telecommunications providers. However, a telephone number from a block allocated to a certain provider may no longer be serviced by the original assignee due to number portability; subscribers who switch providers can take their number with them. When dialled within the Netherlands, the domestic trunk access code 0 must be dialled before the telephone number, extending the dialling sequence to 10 digits. If dialling from overseas, the 0 (Zero) in front of the prefix must be omitted. Before the 1995 reorganization, area codes were restricted to towns. This was lifted ...
BACKGROUND: The prevalence of diagnosed chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the UK is 1.8%, although it is estimated that this represents less than half of the total disease in the population as much remains undiagnosed. Case finding initiatives in primary care will identify people with mild disease and symptoms. The majority of self-management trials have identified patients from secondary care clinics or following a hospital admission for exacerbation of their condition. This trial will recruit a primary care population with mild symptoms of COPD and use telephone health coaching to encourage self-management. METHODS/DESIGN: In this study, using a multi-centred randomised controlled trial (RCT) across at least 70 general practices in England, we plan to establish the effectiveness of nurse-led telephone health coaching to support self-management in primary care for people who report only mild symptoms of their COPD (MRC grade 1 and 2) compared to usual care. The intervention focuses on
Compared with TAU, both TCBT and WCBT intervention arms showed clinically important and/or statistically significant improvements in all primary and secondary outcomes at all time points sustained at 12 months. These results indicate that both TCBT and WCBT are effective treatments for refractory moderately severe IBS compared with TAU.. Trial strengths include a well-powered rigorously conducted RCT with broad inclusion and long-term follow-up. The IBS-specific CBT was based on an explicit theoretical model19 which informed detailed patient and therapy manuals and the WCBT (Regul8). Therapists were experienced in delivering CBT and trained and supervised to deliver IBS-specific CBT. Trial interventions had good treatment fidelity and were delivered by NHS therapists in an NHS setting.. In terms of limitations, trial participants may not be representative of all patients with IBS. To address this, we used broad inclusive recruitment methods from primary and secondary care. However, people ...

Telephone numbers in Turkey went from six (2+4) to seven digits (3+4) local phone numbers c.1988, at which time Ankara went from 41 to 4. There used to be more than 5,000 local area codes of varying lengths (one to five digits) with correspondingly varying local number lengths (seven to three digits). The new system is based on 83 three-digit area codes for provinces and seven digit local phone numbers. Istanbul is the exception and it gets two area codes ((212) for the European and (216) for the Asian side). Calling a cell phone from outside Turkey is the same except the three digit numbers are replaced with the ones of the companies. Like [9] + [0] + [cell company id number] + [seven digit number]. The following are the company identification numbers for the major mobile telephone providers: Turkcell (530-539, 561), Vodafone (540-549) and Türk Telekom (500-509 and 550-559). Local numbers in most areas were also changed in conjunction with the numbering plan that took effect 1 August 1993. If ...

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Primary care providers provide cessation assistance to their tobacco-using patients, but many times fail to provide appropriate follow-up services. The purpose of this project is to develop and test the feasibility of an interactive voice response medication reminder system (IVR) to manage quitting and relapse in tobacco users attempting to quit in primary care settings. The IVR system will consist of two components: (1) an IVR telephone system that makes proactive calls to patients throughout their cessation attempt to monitor progress and provide relapse prevention messages; and (2) a web- based interface for health professionals to set up the appropriate relapse management system (e.g., frequency and duration of management program) and obtain feedback on patient progress or difficulties. Specific aims for Phase I of our project include: 1.) Develop an interactive voice- recognition telephone interventions prototype software program targeting tobacco users ...
Speech over an analog telephone set or an internet phone device in a LAN telephone networ k is actualized by connecting internet phone devices or analog telephone sets to a LAN telephone switching apparatus. Herein, it is permitted to form a system of telephone numbers which differ from LAN addresses being unique in the LAN telephone network, so that the network telephone set can be used with the same feel as that of a conventional extension telephone. Besides, address setting for the individual analog telephone sets or internet phone devices is automatically performed. Moreover, local IP addresses being unique in the LAN telephone switching apparatus are used as IP addresses which are set for the individual sets or devices, so that the problem of the exhaustion of the number of IP addresses can be solved.
In the beginning, which was in 1879, a mere three years after Alexander Graham Bell made the first phone call, the Lowell (Massachusetts) District Telephone Company hired teenage boys to run the switchboard.. Give me John Smith, a subscriber would request, and the lad on duty would plug the call into John Smiths line. However, as time went by, changes had to be made. First off, young women were hired to run the switchboard, said Peter Cronin, spokesman for the New England Telephone Company. It was discovered that the womens voices were better adapted for the work than the boys voices.. Once the women took over the switchboard, and the public began to accept the idea of the telephone, business improved for the Lowell District Telephone Company. By late 1880, four operators were on duty at the switchboard. The phone company had over 200 customers by then. Alas, in December, a few days before Christmas, the trouble started. One of the operators phoned in sick. Back then a sick operator, ...
The target population of voucher recipients was defined based on the administrative records containing all voucher recipients. It covered all voucher recipients in 2010 for whom a voucher was issued in one of the four time periods: (i) from February to first week of March, (ii) April to first week of May, (iii) July and (iv) September to first week of October 2010. This cohort design was chosen (amongst other reasons) to conduct the interviews as shortly as possible after voucher receipt to observe individuals before voucher redemption and training participation (on average, interviews took place around 6 weeks after voucher receipt). In this population, telephone numbers had been provided for 80 percent during voucher application or could be recovered by telephone number search. Survey participants were drawn randomly from those voucher recipients for whom telephone numbers were available. In the first wave in 2010, 5,119 interviews could be conducted and the rate of response was very high (83 ...

In short, therapist-initiated telephone calls did not influence the results ...
A method and apparatus for establishing a telecommunications call connection in response to a phrase uttered by a caller. Data for the caller is stored in a data base shared by a plurality of switching systems. The data comprises a plurality of phoneme strings, each phoneme string corresponding to the phonemes for a phrase uttered by the customer during the training phase and a telephone number corresponding to the utterance. When the caller subsequently uses the service his/her utterance at the time of use is compared to the phoneme strings stored for that customer to establish the best match and thereby identify the telephone number.

Background Surveillance for influenza and influenza-like illness (ILI) is important for guiding public health prevention programs to mitigate the morbidity and mortality caused by influenza, including pandemic influenza. Nontraditional sources of data for influenza and ILI surveillance are of interest to public health authorities if their validity can be established. Methods/Principal Findings National telephone triage call data were collected through automated means for purposes of syndromic surveillance. For the 17 states with at least 500,000 inhabitants eligible to use the telephone triage services, call volume for respiratory syndrome was compared to CDC weekly number of influenza isolates and percentage of visits to sentinel providers for ILI. The degree to which the call data were correlated with either CDC viral isolates or sentinel provider percentage ILI data was highly variable among states. Conclusions Telephone triage data in the U.S. are patchy in coverage and therefore not a reliable

For many years, French telephone numbers consisted of eight digits, including an area code. However, that system began to run out of numbers in the 1980s. On 25 October 1985, France changed to a system of two areas: outside Paris the old area code was incorporated into the subscribers eight-digit number; for Paris, the code 1 was retained, and a digit 4 was added to the front of seven-digit numbers - for example, (fictional) Paris number 16 1 234 56 78 became 16 1 42 34 56 78. For numbers in the Île-de-France surrounding Paris, the old codes 3 and 6 joined the old seven-digit numbers to become eight-digit numbers and were assigned to the Paris area code 1. To call the rest of France from Paris, however, the trunk prefix 16 had to be dialed before the eight-digit number, and to call Paris from the rest of France, the prefix 16 had to be dialed, followed by the area code for Paris 1 and the eight-digit number. In 1996, this changed to the present ten-digit system, in which each ...

This study aimed to evaluate fidelity of telephone-delivered behavioral support. Method: A treatment manual and transcripts of 75 audio-recorded behavioral support sessions were obtained from the United Kingdoms national Quitline service and coded into component behavior change techniques (BCTs) using a taxonomy of 45 smoking cessation BCTs. Interrater reliability was assessed using percentage agreement. Fidelity was assessed by comparing the number of BCTs identified in the manual with those delivered in telephone sessions by 4 counselors. Fidelity was assessed according to session type, duration, counselor, and BCT. Differences between self-reported and actual BCT use were examined. Results: Average coding reliability was high (81%). On average, 41.8% of manual-specified BCTs were delivered per session (SD = 16.2), with fidelity varying by counselor from 32% to 49%. Fidelity was highest in pre-quit sessions (46%) and for BCT give options for additional support (95%). Fidelity was lowest for ...

Facebook Wins! In a unanimous decision in the case of Facebook v. Deguid, the Supreme Court held, To qualify as an automatic telephone dialing system under the TCPA, a device must have the capacity either to store a telephone number using a random or sequential number generator, or to produce a telephone number using a random or sequential number generator.. This ruling overturns the previous ruling from the 9th Circuit, which broadly defined automatic telephone dialing systems as any equipment that has the capacity to store and automatically dial numbers, even if those numbers were not dialed randomly or sequentially. The full opinion can be found here. This narrow reading has the potential to cut down TCPA class actions significantly. We are reviewing the case and will provide more analysis soon. ...

The UK has two free emergency numbers-the traditional 999, which is still widely used, and the EU standard 112, which can be used in all member states of the European Union. Both 999 and 112 are used to contact all emergency services: Police, Fire Service, Ambulance Service, and Coastguard. (Standard advice for Mountain Rescue or Cave Rescue is to ask the emergency operator for the police, who oversee the communication with these two services.[46][47][48]). Both numbers can be called from mobile phones with the keylock on, or without entering the PIN where that would otherwise be required. Although some mobile phones allow emergency calls to be attempted without a SIM card, at present the UK networks reject such calls. Since November 2009, an emergency call can be made through any UK mobile network as long as there is a SIM for any valid UK network in the handset. Although UK VOIP phone providers are required to offer 999 / 112 service this is subject to a registration for the service and with a ...

AIMS: To assess the efficacy of a bacteriology service in respect of the time interval between collection of specimen and receipt of final report using the number and type of incoming telephone enquiries as a proxy measure. METHODS: For three months, all incoming telephone enquiries regarding the results of bacteriology specimens were monitored. Specimen type, date of sampling, the senders location and the reason for making the telephone enquiry were recorded. RESULTS: The number of telephone enquiries made during the study was 1170, about 5% of the total number of samples received. Most enquiries related to results of urine cultures.

The reason there is a sign indicating private road, is because they are not strictly private. A private road is a road that is not maintained by the state or municipality, but by a private person or association. An owner of a private road in Sweden can prohibit cars (but not people) from using the road. But if the state pays support for the maintenance, cars can't be prohibited. This is mostly the case if several families live along the road. Then they must form an association for it. The Swedish word for this kind of road is "enskild", that can be both translated to "private" and "individual". The background of the sign is yellow, indicating that the quality is often less good, and warning signs might be missing. Signs indicating roads owned by companies or leading to companies usually have white background instead. ...

Some mammals are omnivores and display varying degrees of carnivory and herbivory, generally leaning in favor of one more than the other. Since plants and meat are digested differently, there is a preference for one over the other, as in bears where some species may be mostly carnivorous and others mostly herbivorous.[35] They are grouped into three categories: mesocarnivory (50-70% meat), hypercarnivory (70% and greater of meat), and hypocarnivory (50% or less of meat). The dentition of hypocarnivores consists of dull, triangular carnassial teeth meant for grinding food. Hypercarnivores, however, have conical teeth and sharp carnassials meant for slashing, and in some cases strong jaws for bone-crushing, as in the case of hyenas, allowing them to consume bones; some extinct groups, notably the Machairodontinae, had saber-shaped canines.[34] Some physiological carnivores consume plant matter and some physiological herbivores consume meat. From a behavioral aspect, this would make them omnivores, ...
