The emotional and cognitive impact of positive communication between caregivers remains uninvestigated. The investigators hypothesize that positive communication during medical transmissio...
The Positive Pregnancy Program is an innovative, unique, interprofessional model of care for HIV-positive pregnant women. This program has been in place at St. Michael's Hospital for five ...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of the Positive Action program on reducing negative behaviors, increasing positive behaviors and improving academic achievement ...
A prospective randomized study to compare 2 groups: - heparine lock with positive pressure - lock without a needle with positive pressure
Laboratory studies suggest extubation with positive pressure because it reduces the volume of secretions filtered into the distal airway. The aim of this non inferiority study is to evalua...
To establish benchmarks for positive margin incidence in parotid cancers, associate positive margin status with patient, tumor, and institutional factors and overall survival, and characterize institu...
Although the role of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) as a prognostic factor is well established, its consequences for therapy are controversial. The aim of this study was to analyze if complete lymp...
HLA-DRB3 allelic polymorphism on HLA-DRB1*03:01-positive haplotypes was investigated among 104 cadaveric donors typed for HLA-A, -B, -DRB1, and -DRB3. Only HLA-DRB3*01:01:02 and -DRB3*02:02:01:01 alle...
CD25 is expressed on leukemic cells in 10-20% cases of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and its expression is associated with poor prognosis. We reevaluated the relationship between CD25 expression and t...
To develop and initially validate the Positive Sexuality Scale (PSS) to assess adult female positive sexuality.
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. (From Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 12th ed, p1127)
An atom or group of atoms that have a positive or negative electric charge due to a gain (negative charge) or loss (positive charge) of one or more electrons. Atoms with a positive charge are known as CATIONS; those with a negative charge are ANIONS.
Application of positive pressure to the inspiratory phase of spontaneous respiration.
A gram-positive, non-spore-forming group of bacteria comprising organisms that have morphological and physiological characteristics in common.
Application of positive pressure to the inspiratory phase when the patient has an artificial airway in place and is connected to a ventilator.
