Justification and background Ventilator-associated complications (VACs) are those complications that develop during a period of intubation of a patient . Pneumonia is the second most frequent infectious complication in the hospital, and ranks first in ICU, whose risk is increased more than 20 times by the presence of invasive mechanical ventilation and is called ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) . Whereas the information published regarding VAP in terms of diagnosis, treatm...
In a randomized controlled study design, n = 58 treatments of patients with depression were to be conducted under a feedback-condition, in which the therapist would receive feedback five times within 20 treatment sessions. The competence-feedback includes detailed feedback about 14 different aspects of therapist behavior. The control group includes n = 58 further treatments within which therapists do not receive any competence-feedback (treatment as usual; TAU).
The Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) impacts one of every four patients requiring mechanical ventilation for respiratory support and carries a mortality rate of 40%. To diagnose ARDS, doctors currently use the Berlin definition, that requires chest radiographs and analysis of oxygenation in the blood (arterial blood gas). These tests are not available in areas of the world with constrained resources and may be unnecessarily invasive. A modification of the Berlin defin...
In this study, investigators designed a double-blind randomized trial to prove a more reliable evidence to show how the treatment by using high-definition transcranial direct current stimulation (HD-tDCS) can relieve negative symptoms in patients with predominant negative symptoms of schizophrenia, especially on improving participants' anhedonia condition and social cognition, through stimulating the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). Participants will be divided into...
The purpose of this clinical study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of shockwave treatment combined with standard-of-care treatment, to standard-of-care treatment alone to induce healing of a chronic plantar foot ulcer in subjects with diabetes mellitus. For the purpose of this study, the definition of plantar foot ulcer is a wound or open sore that involves the plantar(bottom) aspect of the foot, and the definition of chronic is a duration of 6 weeks or greater with...
A Feasibility Study to Compare the Benefits of Endoscopic Tumor Clip Placement and 3T-MRI Simulation for Accurate Target Volume Definition for Rectal Cancer Patients Undergoing Pre-operative Chemoradiation
This study is looking for a better way to define rectal tumors undergoing pre-operative radiation. MRI scanning generally results in more clear definition of the tumor that CT scanning. Insertion of radio opaque clips in the tumor site could also help to visualize the tumor better for radiotherapy treatment planning. The investigators believe both techniques would help the physician to define to cancer better than using CT scan alone. The investigators also will compare both te...
The ARDS has a clinical definition with criteria of the American-European Consensus Conference (1994). This definition inconveniently applies to a lot of patients with acute respiratory failure. We know that there are 2 forms of ARDS morphology on CT scan : "lobar attenuation" (loss of aeration with no concomitant excess in lung tissue) predominating in the lower lobes and "non lobar attenuation" with diffuse and massive loss of aeration with excess lung tissue in all th...
The primary objective of this study is to develop a theoretical framework for the effect of "Compassion Rounds" on critical care patients, their families and friends, physicians, and other health care providers. The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate and interpret data to determine best practice recommendations for replicability.
Project which objective is to test the effectiveness of a classroom-based physical activity intervention (MOVI-da10!) on improving, body composition, cardio-respiratory fitness and executive function.
To perform a study (100 patients) utilizing Hepatitis C positive (HCV Ab+/NAT -) donor lungs for hepatitis C negative recipients with post-operative surveillance and treatment only if a recipient infection occurs.
- To demonstrate the tests' performance when compared to the detection of PJI using the Musculoskeletal Infection Society (MSIS) criteria-based definition of PJI for diagnosing PJI.1 This criteria-based definition of PJI places emphasis on culture techniques that identify pathogens, but also provides for minor criteria that can be used to diagnose PJI; - To calculate the tests' clinical sensitivity, clinical specificity, positive predictive v...
Observation study about physical activity, motor competence, pulmonary function, and health related quality of life in children, surgically treated for early onset scoliosis
The last decade has seen progressive advances in RT delivery, such as intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), which now allow highly precise radiation dose delivery. Together, IMRT and IGRT offer the potential of more selective treatment of the primary tumour and surrounding neck nodes by reducing the dose inflicted on critical organs at risk without compromising tumour dose and. IMRT has been shown to significantly decrease radiat...
The present study aims to describe novel non-invasive parameters related to the competence of female reproductive cells (oocytes). In a fertility unit, human reproductive cells and embryos are subjected to different imaging technologies. Images can easily be obtained without disturbing the microenvironment during different standard procedures. Turning images into quantifiable data might provide a further understanding on oocyte behavior and performance in the laboratory.
To perform a study (100 patients) utilizing Hepatitis C positive donor hearts for hepatitis C negative donors with post-operative surveillance and treatment only if a recipient infection occurs.
Standard endoscopic management for anastomotic bile leaks following OLT has been endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with placement of a temporary plastic biliary endoprosthesis (stent) across the site of anastomotic leak. While this intervention carries a high rate of technical success, clinical success is not universal. An alternative to placement of a plastic biliary stent is placement of a fully covered self-expanding metal stent (FCSEMS). Whereas a plasti...
Our treatment, SENSE Theatre, combines several well-documented, effective behavioral strategies and theatre techniques. The proposed project will extend previous findings showing improving improvement in memory for faces. The multisite randomized control trial will include a large sample of 240 children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) randomly assigned to the experimental (SENSE Theatre) or an active control condition (Tackling Teenage Together).
Ultrasonography (US) is an operator depended image modality that is difficult to reproduce and interpret by others. Competence of the US operator is crucial for reliable diagnostics but no evidence-based certification of head and neck US skills has been developed. Investigators conducted an experimental study aimed to explore diagnostic accuracy and establish validity evidence for certification standards in surgeon-performed ultrasonography.
Despite recent advances in stent technology and its widespread application in the treatment of peripheral vascular disease (PVD), incidences of partial or complete blockage of stent lumen (in-stent restenosis) due to in growth of cells (neo-intimal proliferation) is unacceptably high. In diabetics with long superficial femoral artery (SFA) lesions, in-stent restenosis rates are higher than in non-diabetics. Consequently interventional techniques that curtail in-stent res...
The aim of the study is to determine whether Narrow Band Imaging(NBI) should be routinely used during esophagus inspection at diagnostic gastroscopy.
This study will demonstrate whether an end-of-life preparation and completion intervention reduces anxiety, depression, pain and other symptoms and improves functional status, spiritual well-being, and quality of life. If effective, the intervention offers a brief, inexpensive, and transportable non-physician treatment method for improving the experience of individuals in the latter stages of life-limiting illness.
The investigators propose to improve HIV prevention and care through expanding HIV testing options to include self-testing for young women, their peers and their sex partners, and by facilitating linkage to care.
Prostate cancer (CAP) is one of the most common malignancies in men, both in Western countries and developing countries. Radiation therapy (RT) is an important therapeutic option. New technologies (3D, IMRT, IGRT, VMAT) have been introduced in the last decades, with a progressive improvement of clinical outcome. However, in many countries the only treatment option is the traditional 2D technique based on standard simulation. The indications for field definition in this treatmen...
Helping babies breathe (HBB) is a neonatal resuscitation training program for low-resource settings to health care workers to provide prompt respiratory support to save babies at birth. Despite massive roll-out, new-born mortality reduction has stagnated over the years. Innovative teaching methods with existing technology such as video-debriefing needs to be tested to promote competence (skills and knowledge) attainment and retention.
