Soil organic matter in podzol horizons of the Amazon region: Humification, recalcitrance, and dating.

Characteristics of soil organic matter (SOM) are important, especially in the Amazon region, which represents one of the world's most relevant carbon reservoirs. In this work, the concentrations of carbon and differences in its composition (humification indexes) were evaluated and compared for several horizons (0 to 390cm) of three typical Amazonian podzol profiles. Fluorescence spectroscopy was used to investigate the humic acid (HA) fractions of SOM isolated from the different samples. Simple and labile c...

Sources and fate of polycyclic aromatic compounds (PAHs, oxygenated PAHs and azaarenes) in forest soil profiles opposite of an aluminium plant.

Little is known about oxygenated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (OPAHs) and azaarenes (AZAs) in forest soils. We sampled all horizons of forest soils from five locations at increasing distances from an Al plant in Slovakia, and determined their polycyclic aromatic compound (PACs) concentrations. The ∑29PAHs concentrations were highest in the Oa and lowest in the Oi horizon, while the ∑14OPAHs and ∑4AZAs concentrations did not show a consistent vertical distribution among the organic horizons. The co...

A 20 Year review : The use of Exception from Informed Consent and Waiver of Informed Consent in Emergency research.

Due to the acuity and time sensitive needs of their clinical condition, patients presenting with certain emergent pathologies may lack capacity to provide meaningful prospective informed consent to participate in clinical research. For these reasons, these populations have often been excluded from research investigations. To mitigate this, regulations allowing Exception from Informed Consent (EFIC) (21 CFR 50.24) or Waiver of Informed Consent (WIC) (45 CFR 46.101) were developed in 1996. The purpose of this...

Proposal of informed consent by representation for treatment with clozapine.

Clozapine-induced agranulocytosis, a potentially serious adverse effect, is a limiting factor for its therapeutic use, leading to the suspension of the drug. Its annual incidence in Argentina is 0.05%. In 2000, under provision number 935, the ANMAT approved the Monitoring Program for Ambulatory and Inpatient Patients Treated with Clozapine. In this provision arises the obligation to sign the informed consent where the patient is informed of the risks and benefts of the treatment. In psychiatric care practic...

Enhanced Informed Consent in Hand Surgery: Techniques to Improve the Informed Consent Process.

The informed consent process is central to the practice of surgery. Rather than a single event or required form, informed consent should be an educational discussion between the surgeon and patient covering the proposed benefits, risks, potential complications, and alternatives of a given operation. The rise in medical malpractice claims in recent decades has placed ever greater importance on the informed consent process. Informed consent requires a patient with decision making capacity to comprehend the pe...

Utilization of a Smartphone Platform for Electronic Informed Consent in Acute Stroke Trials.

The informed consent process is a major limitation for enrollment in acute stroke clinical investigations. We aim to describe the novel application of smartphone electronic informed consenting (e-Consent) in trials of cerebral thrombectomy.

Perspectives of patients with haematological cancer on how clinicians meet their information needs: 'managing' information versus 'giving' it.

Practitioners treating patients with haematological cancers have extensive clinical information available to give to patients, and patients need to be informed. However, many patients want to be protected from having information that is too detailed or threatening. To illuminate how practitioners can address this dilemma and help patients feel appropriately informed, we explored patients' experience of feeling informed or uninformed.

An Observational Study of the Association of Video- Versus Text-Based Informed Consent With Multicenter Trial Enrollment: Lessons From the PALM Study (Patient and Provider Assessment of Lipid Management).

Patient participation in clinical research is low, in part because of the length and complexity of the informed consent process. Video informed consent may enhance the appeal of research and help break down barriers to participation.

Plastic surgery and informed consent - need to know.

The article is about the special requirements for the informed consent of patients for cosmetic surgery. The authors describe how cosmetic surgeons face very strict rules.

Metal sorption to Spodosol Bs horizons: Organic matter complexes predominate.

While metal sorption mechanisms have been studied extensively for soil surface horizons, little information exists for subsoils, for example Spodosol Bs horizons. Here the sorption of cadmium(II), copper(II) and lead(II) to seven Bs horizons from five sites was studied. Extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy showed that cadmium(II) and lead(II) were bound as inner-sphere complexes to organic matter. Addition of o-phosphate (to 1 μmol l-1) did not result in any significant enhance...

Safe and Collaborative Communication Skills: A Step towards Mental Health Nurses Implementing Trauma Informed Care.

Trauma Informed Care (TIC) acknowledges the presence and effects of trauma in the lives of many mental health service users and the responsibility of services to provide physical and emotional safety. One challenge of TIC is a lack of clarity about translating the philosophy into practice. This paper describes the delivery and evaluation of a trauma informed communication workshop for mental health nurses that aimed to increase their knowledge of the potential impacts of trauma on consumers, and translate T...

A Canadian upland forest soil profile and carbon stocks database.

"A Canadian upland forest soil profile and carbon stocks database" was compiled in phases over a period of 10 years to address various questions related to modeling upland forest soil carbon in a national forest carbon accounting model. For 3,253 pedons, the SITES table contains estimates for soil organic carbon stocks (tonnes [t] ha-1 ) in organic horizons and mineral horizons to a 100-cm depth, soil taxonomy, leading tree species, mean annual temperature, annual precipitation, province or territory, terre...

A trauma-informed approach supports health and development in children and youth with spina bifida.

Children with developmental disabilities may be at greater risk for experiencing maltreatment and traumatic events, threats to their physical and psychological safety and well-being. Young children and youth with spina bifida benefit from being considered in light of this risk, and may be especially vulnerable given the complexity of their neurodevelopmental condition. A trauma-informed approach brings together evidence from the neurosciences, epidemiology and psychology to promote improved developmental, b...

Challenges to Informed Consent in First-In-Human Trials Involving Novel Treatments: A Case Study of Parkinson's Disease.

Obtaining informed consent in clinical trials can be challenging both for researchers and for patients, albeit in different ways. The challenge concerns not only how to provide the needed information, but also what information to focus on when dealing with individual patients who have different goals, needs, histories, etc. This paper aims to contribute to a better informed consent process for Parkinson's patients taking part in first-in-human clinical trials of cell replacement therapies. It outlines a ran...

Easy-to-Read Informed Consent Form for Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation Clinical Trials: Results From BMT CTN 1205 Study.

Informed Consent and the Limited English Patient: A Pilot Project with Dental Hygiene Students to Assess Student Knowledge, Perceptions, and Attitudes.

Informed consent is the process by which a patient agrees to or rejects a proposed plan of treatment after a discussion with the provider about the benefits, risks, and alternative treatments available. In the United States, a signed informed consent form is required before any treatment plan may be implemented. However, there is no literature addressing how students in health professions understand informed consent in the context of encounters with limited English proficient (LEP) patients. The purpose of ...
