Dyspnea is a symptom that is growing in incidence, as respiratory and heart diseases are becoming more frequent. Patients suffering from dyspnea have a significant disabling due to chronic...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a handheld mirror helps to reduce child behavior problems during dental treatment. It will be tested by randomized crossover design. Child...
Obesity, defined as a Body Mass Index greater than or equal to 30 kg/m2, represents a significant public health issue. Dyspnea is a very common and crippling symptom in obesity. About 80% ...
To explore biological mechanisms in human model of induced dyspnea, in order to remove the source of dyspnoea, to modify cerebral impact and to allow the development of targeted therapies.
Assessment of handheld fundus images in comparison to conventional fundus camera images.
Dyspnea (=breathlessness) is an aversive and threatening symptom in various prevalent diseases. Established treatment procedures aim for behavioral changes in dyspneic patients in order to treat dyspn...
Dyspnea has been reported to be a main contributor to exercise avoidance in asthma. While traditional markers of ventilation do not explain the heightened dyspnea during exercise in asthmatics, this s...
Although breakthrough dyspnea is very frequent in cancer patients, there are no precise recommendations for treating it. The main objective of this study was to analyze what treatments are used in cli...
Handheld dynamometers (HHD) provide quick and low-cost assessments of muscle strength and their use has been increasing in clinical practice. There is no available data related to the validity of HHD ...
This randomized controlled study (pretest, posttest, test control group) was conducted with the aim of determining the effect of music on the severity of dyspnea, anxiety, and hemodynamic parameters i...
A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).
MICROCOMPUTERS, sometimes called PDA, that are very small and portable, fitting in a hand, and that have much more function than a calculator. They are convenient to use in clinical and other field situations for quick data management. They usually require docking with MICROCOMPUTERS for updates.
The anterior portion of the head that includes the skin, muscles, and structures of the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth, cheeks, and jaw.
Enzymes that catalyze DNA template-directed extension of the 3'-end of an RNA strand one nucleotide at a time. They can initiate a chain de novo. In eukaryotes, three forms of the enzyme have been distinguished on the basis of sensitivity to alpha-amanitin, and the type of RNA synthesized. (From Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992).
An isothermal in-vitro nucleotide amplification process. The process involves the concomitant action of a RNA-DIRECTED DNA POLYMERASE, a ribonuclease (RIBONUCLEASES), and DNA-DIRECTED RNA POLYMERASES to synthesize large quantities of sequence-specific RNA and DNA molecules.
