To investigate the effects of the availability of daily patient-related charges on ordering patterns of health care ordering providers and cost containment in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) setting.
The primary purpose of this proposal is to conduct a prospective, randomized, controlled clinical trial to examine whether or not treatment based on a person's direction-specific, impairment-based LBP classification is more effective than Non-specific treatment in improving short- (6 weeks) and long-term (6 and 12 months) outcomes in people with chronic LBP. A secondary purpose is to identify the prognostic factors that contribute to outcomes in the 2 treatment groups. We hyp...
Corticosteroid therapy is usually regarded as a risk factor for the development of posterior subcapsular cataracts but prospective studies on this topic and accurate assessment of this potential adverse effect are lacking. We will evaluate changes of lens transparency after administration of systemic corticosteroid therapy for at least one year with Scheimpflug photography and quantification of lens autofluorescence.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a very common abnormal heart rhythm, triggered by rapid electrical activity originating from the pulmonary veins (PVs) that drain blood from the lungs back to the left atrium (LA). Ablation of the junction between the PVs and the LA, electrically isolating the veins from the heart, is the key to prevent AF. When using radiofrequency energy (RF), transmural lesions are required to achieve permanent pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). New technologies are...
This study will give a new insight to the physiotherapy fraternity in the effects of spinal manipulation in as clinical practice, as well as the patient's community in quick re-establishment of functional ability, pain decrease, and improvement of quality of life for economic reasons. In this high opinion, application of short-term intensive spinal manipulation for non specific chronic low back pain treatment is desirable.
Ambulatory children with cerebral palsy (CP) experience walking limitations which negatively influence their ability to physically participate in day to day life. The investigators propose that impaired muscle power generation is the key limiting factor affecting walking activity and participation. This proposal represents a combined approach where participants undergo resistance training for muscle power generation in combination with locomotor treadmill training that is based...
Low back pain is a common symptom, which often affects the adult population. Studies show that over the past two decades, costs related to spinal surgery have increased significantly, leading to speculation about what would be motivating this phenomenon. Although expenses with physical therapy treatments and less invasive surgical procedures remained relatively stable, the amount spent with more complex spine surgeries increased exponentially until they became the procedures wi...
"A Study to assess the Opinion of Doctors, Nurses and Key informants regarding Independent Nurse Midwifery Practitioner at selected Hospitals and Colleges of nursing in Haryana."
The goal of this proposal is to test the overall hypothesis that subjects with chronic or recurrent low back pain have an abnormal soft tissue response to acupuncture needling, and that this altered response is associated with abnormal perimuscular connective tissue structure and biomechanics. We will also test whether or not altered needling responses in low back pain are generalized, or localized to specific locations as predicted by traditional acupuncture theory. This pro...
Low back pain (LBP) is the leading cause of disability worldwide and has substantial impacts on pain and function for an individual. Some individuals with LBP seek physical therapy for their condition. The purpose of the study is to determine whether individuals with LBP have improved pain and disability following physical therapy targeting either the low back only or low back plus hip(s).
Traditionally, when performing resistance exercise, repetitions are performed in a continuous manner resulting in a decrease in velocity, and thus power output. "Cluster" set is an alternative to counter the reduction in velocity and power output. Cluster sets incorporate a brief rest (15-30 seconds) between individual repetitions (inter-repetition rest) or group of repetitions (intra-set rest) within a set of resistive exercise. In contrast to traditional set configurations, w...
This proposal is a randomized control trial using innovative interactive health technologies to promote and sustain walking behavior among elderly patients. The technology uses an Embodied Conversational Agent (ECA), a computer character that simulates face-to-face conversation. The trial will be block randomized by literacy status and include an intensive two-month, daily contact intervention via a Tablet PC ECA in the subject's home, an automated telephone program, and then a...
This proposal aims to investigate the treatment effect and underlying mechanism of transcutaneous nerve stimulation on chronic low back pain. We believe that this study, if successful, will provide new treatment options for chronic low back pain, reduce the use of opioid analgesics in chronic pain management, and enhance our understanding of the underlying mechanism of nerve stimulation treatment, as well as the pathophysiology and development of chronic pain.
This study determines the effects of posture on time up and go test. Half of the subjects will assume a high-power posture, while the other half will assume a low-power posture.
Prospective, one arm, baseline-controlled, clinical study for the evaluation of the UltraShape Power treatment using the U-Sculpt Power Transducer for non-invasive abdominal fat and circumference reduction.
The primary goal of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the DBS to the fornix/NbM among patients who are diagnosed as AD according to a series of evaluations including cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers and molecular imaging examinations; The secondary goal is to compare the efficacy among the two treatment groups of different targets.
This study will be a comparative design between 2 groups of subjects attending classes on back education in an urban setting. Participants will be randomized to either an individual one-on-one back school session or to the 8 group sessions.
This study will enroll patients who present to Emergency Departments (EDs) and have an acute exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) at discharged in 2 Edmonton EDs. Patients will all be provided with evidence-based discharge (prednisone and an antibiotic) and will be randomized to receive enhanced education to the primary care provider or standard care. The investigators' goal is to determine if an opinion leaders' advice will improve chronic care in the...
GLA:D Back is a program developed in Denmark to help people with persistent low back pain. This pilot study will assist in contextualizing Danish content into an English version of the program.
The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical effectiveness of a low-power PEMF device, a medium-power PEMF device and a high-power PEMF device as compared to a sham device to treat leg ulcers resulting from venous stasis ("VSLU").
Chronic nonspecific low back pain is an important health condition with a high prevalence worldwide and it is associated with enormous direct and indirect costs to the society. Clinical practice guidelines show that many interventions are available to treat patients with chronic low back pain, but the vast majority of these interventions have a modest effect in reducing pain and disability. A biomechanical approach that has been raised is that a weakness of the hip abductors, e...
We would like to test how well human volunteers power a modified oxygen concentrator. We modified the oxygen concentrator to be powered by a bicycle instead of wall power so that it can be used in low resource countries where the power supply is unreliable.
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of back supports plus education upon recovery from a work-related low back disorder. The study tests the hypothesis: the use of back supports plus health education is not different from health education alone in promoting recovery from a work-related low back disorder in consideration of personal, health, and job factors. Significant improvements in physical health, neurogenic symptoms, back pain disability, and low back pain ...
