  • Since the introduction of the BAI, other factor structures have been implemented, including a four factor structure used by Beck and Steer with anxious outpatients that included neurophysiological, autonomic symptoms, subjective, and panic components of anxiety. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1993, Beck, Steer, and Beck used a three factor structure including subjective, somatic, and panic subscale scores to differentiate among a sample of clinically anxious outpatients Because the somatic subscale is emphasized on the BAI, with 15 out of 21 items measuring physiological symptoms, perhaps the cognitive, affective, and behavioral components of anxiety are being deemphasized.

  • clinical presentation
  • The aims of this article are to present the current state of the science on the pathogenesis of NEC, summarize the clinical presentation and severity staging of the disease, and highlight the nursing assessments required for early identification of NEC and ongoing care for infants diagnosed with this gastrointestinal disease.

  • adults
  • A full spectrum of microorganisms is responsible for CAP in adults, and patients with certain risk factors are more susceptible to infections of certain groups of microorganisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many less-common organisms can cause CAP in adults, and are identified from specific risk factors or treatment failure for common causes. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), created by Aaron T. Beck and other colleagues, is a 21-question multiple-choice self-report inventory that is used for measuring the severity of anxiety in children and adults. (wikipedia.org)
  • The severity of disease is based on body mass index (BMI) in adults with mild disease having a BMI of greater than 17, moderate a BMI of 16 to 17, severe a BMI of 15 to 16, and extreme a BMI less than 15. (wikipedia.org)
  • depression
  • Another study indicates that, in primary care patients with different anxiety disorders including social phobia, panic disorder, panic disorder with or without agoraphobia, agoraphobia, or generalized anxiety disorder, the BAI seemed to measure the severity of depression. (wikipedia.org)
  • Specifically it has been shown to determine illness related stress and depression issues that arise from parent's catastrophizing about their child's pain in regards to a disability or illness. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • This attitude may cause the patient to relapse and patients that rate their parents poorly in this test have a harder time coping with their illness if too much time is spent with the parent. (wikipedia.org)
  • typically
  • PAD is typically diagnosed by finding an ankle-brachial index (ABI) less than 0.90, which is the systolic blood pressure at the ankle divided by the systolic blood pressure of the arm. (wikipedia.org)
  • Male
  • The rule uses demographics (whether someone is older, and is male or female), the coexistence of co-morbid illnesses, findings on physical examination and vital signs, and essential laboratory findings. (wikipedia.org)
  • mental
  • to assist in identifying feigned mental illness. (wikipedia.org)
  • The attitudes of family members with high expressed emotion are too strong for the patient and the patient now has to deal with the mental illness and the criticism from those they would need support from in their time of recovery. (wikipedia.org)

  • disease
  • The guideline acceptable reading also takes into account other co-factors for disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Psoriasis is generally thought to be a genetic disease that is triggered by environmental factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cultural factors also appear to play a role with societies that value thinness having higher rates of disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • potential
  • Its potential severity has driven much research to prevent it and divers almost universally use dive tables or dive computers to limit their exposure and to control their ascent speed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Effect
  • It is important to understand the effect of these various factors on the normal values for nerve conduction measurements to aid in identifying abnormal nerve conduction study results. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • Early TEN can resemble non-specific drug reactions, so clinicians should maintain a high index of suspicion for TEN. (wikipedia.org)
  • stress
  • The relative becomes so overbearing that the patient can no longer live with this kind of stress from pity, and falls back into their illness as a way to cope. (wikipedia.org)
  • appear
  • Other agents, including tumor necrosis factor alpha and fas ligand, also appear to be involved in TEN pathogenesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • medical
  • Conduction velocities are affected by a wide array of factors, including age, sex, and various medical conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • persistence

  • His work focuses on cognitive biases such as anxiety sensitivity, thought-action fusion, intolerance of uncertainty, and attentional biases that factor in the persistence of OCD and irrational fear. (wikipedia.org)
  • levels
  • In the Northeast, a heat wave is typically defined as three consecutive days where the temperature reaches or exceeds 90 °F (32.2 °C), but not always as this ties in with humidity levels to determine a heat index threshold. (wikipedia.org)
  • health
