Patients with Fibromyalgia using a brand mattress will show greater improvement sleeping than when using a comparison mattress.
Pressure Ulcers are a serious and common problem for residents admitted to long-term care facilities and community care patients. They represent a major burden to patients, carers and the ...
This is a research study because it is commonly observed that sleep in its quantity and quality is influenced by the type of mattress used at night. A recent study in patients with back pa...
The main objective of this research project is to measure the impact on patient satisfaction of the use of a fabric mattress cover fabric on a bedsheet protecting a plastic mattress.
The primary study objective is to determine whether mattress firmness affects pain in patients with chronic low-back pain. We hypothesize that mattresses that differ in their firmness and ...
The primary objective was to assess the incidence of pressure ulcer (PU) in patients at high risk of PU and lying between 15-20 hours per day on an alternating-pressure mattress overlay (APMO). Second...
Environmental exposure to endotoxin, Fel d I (cat) allergen and Der p I (house dust mite) allergen have been associated with asthma symptoms and have been measured in the environment using various sam...
To investigate gender differences in gluteal subcutaneous architecture and biomechanics to better understand the pathophysiology underlying the mattress-like appearance of cellulite.
This Letter describes an experimental realization of a double-pass amplifier using rod-type fiber. In this device, the gain reaches 26 dB amplifying a 300 mW, 20 ps, 20 MHz seed up to 120 W, with...
Non-therapeutic positive end-expiratory pressure occurring frequently in patients with severe airway obstruction. It can appear with or without the administration of external positive end-expiratory pressure (POSITIVE-PRESSURE RESPIRATION). It presents an important load on the inspiratory muscles which are operating at a mechanical disadvantage due to hyperinflation. Auto-PEEP may cause profound hypotension that should be treated by intravascular volume expansion, increasing the time for expiration, and/or changing from assist mode to intermittent mandatory ventilation mode.

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
The blood pressure in the VEINS. It is usually measured to assess the filling PRESSURE to the HEART VENTRICLE.
Persistently high systemic arterial BLOOD PRESSURE. Based on multiple readings (BLOOD PRESSURE DETERMINATION), hypertension is currently defined as when SYSTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently greater than 140 mm Hg or when DIASTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently 90 mm Hg or more.
The blood pressure in the ARTERIES. It is commonly measured with a SPHYGMOMANOMETER on the upper arm which represents the arterial pressure in the BRACHIAL ARTERY.
