The 2,1-benzazaarsole (1) showed a diene-like reactivity towards selected alkynes RC≡CR (R = CO2Me, C5F4N) thus forming 1-arsa-1,4-dihydro-iminonaphthalenes 2a and 3a as hardly isolable intermediates, that underwent facile CH→NH proton migration leading to before elusive substituted 1-arsanaphthalenes 2b and 3b that could be completely structurally characterized.
Among asylum seekers (AS), mental health conditions are highly prevalent. However this population group has poor access to adequate services and frequently incurs discontinuity of mental healthcare. Many factors explain discontinuity of mental healthcare for asylum seekers. The aim of this study is to evaluate if facilitation of care for AS decreases healthcare provider stereotypes of this population and improves their continuity of care.
The landscape of medicine in the United States has been slowly progressing toward a more holistic and individualized approach to healing. Part of this progress has been the integration between western and alternative forms of medicine, a concept that has been described as "integrative medicine." This approach to healthcare incorporates a patient's mind, spirituality, and sense of community into the healing process. Integrative medicine has been typically well received and the demand has been steadily increa...
Emission Trading Scheme (ETS) has the potential to influence energy consumption, environmental quality and economy directly and ETS price is the key of ETS market. On December 27, 2017, China's carbon trading market was officially launched, which may be the largest platform of ETS in the world. Therefore, this paper seeks to assess the influencing factors of emission trading price (industry coverage, the annual decline factor, and free allowance rate) and analyzes the impact mechanism in detail by applying ...
Laboratory medicine is an important part of the healthcare system and directly contributes to preventive actions, diagnostics, treatment, and management of diseases. The level and quality of the utilization of laboratory resources have been frequently questioned. A dissemination of conflicting data regarding the quantity of laboratory tests not accessed by the requesting doctors or by the patients themselves is observed, although very often the sources and methodologies used to raise those numbers are not p...
The product quality of recombinant proteins is of major importance for their intended purpose. The initial characterization of both simple and complex products should be performed as soon as practical. However, to comply with this high standard, appropriate selection of complementary methods is required. Therefore, conventional and sophisticated techniques are available, providing diverse information about the product quality.In this chapter methods are presented, which enable the determination of the overa...
Biobanks are collections of various biological samples and their related information. These samples include organs, tissues, cells, blood, body fluids, secretions, excretions and biological macromolecular derivatives from healthy or diseased individuals that are collected, processed, stored and utilized under standard procedures. Sample-related information consists of clinical information, test results, pathology, imaging, treatment, follow-up visits and informed patient consent as well as quality control, ...
Demographics, safety and quality, and prognostic information in both the seventh and eighth editions of the TNM classification in 18,973 surgical cases of the Japanese Joint committee of Lung Cancer Registry database in 2010.
The Japanese Joint Committee of Lung Cancer Registry (JJCLCR) performed the fourth nationwide registry study of surgical cases. Demographics, safety and quality, prognostic information, and correlations between the 7 and the 8 editions of the TNM classification were investigated. The principal results were compared with previous JJCLCR studies.
Morbidity and mortality attributed to lung cancer remain at high levels, especially where men are concerned. The surgery for lung cancer involves removing neoplastic lesions in order to save the largest possible part of the healthy lung. Of importance is also pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation. The aim of this thesis is to gauge the quality of life of patients who have had their lung cancer surgically removed.
Risk adjustment is a widely used tool for health expenditure prediction and control. Early approaches for estimating health expenditure were based on patient demographic variables alone, whereas more recent models incorporate patient information, such as chronic medical conditions, clinical diagnoses, and self-reported health status. Many studies have investigated the health expenditure predictive capacity of single demographic, morbidity, or health-related quality of life measures, but the best models prov...
Transformation products (TPs) can be formed from organic micropollutants in the water cycle through both biological and technological processes. Despite the TPs' potentially altered toxicity compared to their parent compounds, transformation processes are not routinely monitored, and in particular those induced by drinking water treatment remain elusive. This lack of information is mainly due to the technical challenges in analyzing TPs, which are often unknown compounds occurring in low concentrations. The...
To understand the oral healthcare experiences of humanitarian migrants in Montreal and their perceptions of ways to improve access to oral healthcare.
Initiatives to improve hypertension control within academic medical centers and closed health systems have been extensively studied, but large community-wide quality improvement (QI) initiatives have been both less common and less successful in the United States. The authors examined a community-wide QI initiative across 226 843 patients from 198 practices in nine counties across upstate New York to improve hypertension control and reduce disparities. The QI initiative focused on (a) providing population a...
In a recent paper, Tilma, Everitt et al. derived a generalized Wigner function that can characterize both the discrete and continuous variable states, i.e., hybrid states. As such, one can expect that the negativity of the generalized Wigner function applied to the hybrid states can reveal their nonclassicality, in analogy with the well-known Wigner function defined for the continuous variable states. In this work, we demonstrate that, indeed, the negativity volume of the generalized Wigner function of the ...
Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) acquires increased importance as a target parameter for different stakeholders in healthcare, e. g. to assess treatment outcome in chronically ill patients. In this educational article, we explain the levels of the health-related quality of life construct and associated main dimensions including physical, mental and social health. State-of-the-art approaches for assessment of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are introduced on the basis of the HRQoL model. Furthermore...
Home healthcare is the fastest growing arena in the healthcare system but patient safety research in this context is limited. The aim was to explore how patient safety in Swedish specialised home healthcare is described and adressed from multidisciplinary teams' and clinical managers' perspectives.
Blood gas analysis (BGA) is essential for the diagnosis and management of acid-base imbalances.

The effect of sample mixing on patient resul...
Long-term trajectories of healthcare utilization in the context of surgery have not been well characterized. The objective of this study was to examine healthcare utilization trajectories among surgical patients and identify factors associated with high utilization that could possibly be mitigated following surgical admissions.
The traditional mission of safety net hospitals has been charity, providing the best healthcare for all individuals no matter their ability to pay. The focus has been on vulnerable populations that are low-income, uninsured, and other upstream circumstances that manifest downstream as poor health, poor health outcomes, and repeated high-cost interventions that fail to break cycles of perpetual health instability. Safety net hospitals are committed to serving their populations, even if only temporarily, thro...
Meningococcal disease is a rare, but serious, bacterial infection that progresses rapidly and can be life-threatening, even with prompt antibiotic treatment. Men who have sex with men (MSM) have previously been reported to be at increased risk for meningococcal disease compared with other men, and recent outbreaks of serogroup C meningococcal disease among MSM have occurred (1). However, the epidemiology of meningococcal disease among MSM in the United States is not well described, in part, because informat...
