This study will determine if gas can pass between the environment and the middle ear by way of the eardrum. This route of gas exchange was observed in animals but has not been studied in humans. If gas exchange across the eardrum is documented and the rate is sufficiently high, this can help explain certain past observations such as why middle ear pressure does not change very much in some children and adults when they have a cold or flu. The investigators also expect that th...
The investigators want to compare the efficacy of plasma exchange treatment with using two different citrates ( 4% and 15% ) as anticoagulants in plasma exchange treatment. The efficacy of plasma exchange treatment is better with using 15% trisodium citrate as anticoagulant during the plasma exchange procedure.
The results found in the literature do not allow to define objectively the indications respective for a one-step or a two-step exchange of prosthetic joint. Some criteria could help to decide for one-step exchange or two-step exchange: bacteria is/are identified, profile of the bacteria, anesthetic difficulties,.. A puncture could allow to identify the bacteria involved in the prosthetic joint infection (PJI) and an antibiotherapy for a few days can be given to the patient in ...
The goals of the proposed research were to: 1. describe the person and environment characteristics and activity patterns of residents in long-term care (LTC) facilities; 2. modify the evidence-based, occupation-based cultural heritage intervention (OBCHI) grounded on the results of Aim 1; 3. test the effectiveness of the OBCHI intended to facilitate adaptation to relocation into LTC facilities relative to a usual activities group; 4. deter...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a web-based training program with text-based information as well as practical exercises can improve cross-cultural competencies in therapists.
Chronic infection after total joint arthroplasty generally requires implant exchange. Two stage exchange is considered as the gold standard procedure. However, some authors suggest that one stage exchange may be as effective. No consensus exists in the current literature. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the cost of both strategies in comparison to their success rate.
This study is designed to test the impact of a new curriculum, called Provider Awareness Cultural Dexterity Toolkit for Surgeons (PACTS), on surgical residents' cross-cultural knowledge, attitudes, and skills surrounding the care of patients from diverse cultural backgrounds, as well as clinical and patient-reported health outcomes for patients treated by surgical residents undergoing this training.
The purpose of the study is to develop and evaluate a dietary change program specifically for low-income, African-American women who are at risk for developing diabetes due to obesity. The program uses an innovative approach that emphasizes risk awareness, self-efficacy, and skills training through active learning exercises related to healthy eating. The program is delivered by peer educators in the community and addresses economic and cultural factors that are very important...
The purpose of this study is to design a comprehensive nutrition and physical activity strategy to gain a broad understanding of the social and cultural role of food and physical activity among workers. Perspectives on innovative interventions that are socially feasible and culturally acceptable will also be obtained. Health lifestyle promotion interventions addressing portion control, healthy nutrition, and increasing physical activity will be tested.
The purpose of this study is to test the use of a smartphone app as a way to measure food waste. Investigators propose to improve the accuracy and convenience of household food waste measurement so that consumer food waste program evaluations yield more power, less bias, less measurement error, and greater representation of targeted populations.
Main objective: to evaluate the executive functioning of the HIV exposed uninfected children (HEU) versus children from the same socio-economic and cultural environment, not infected or affected by HIV. Secondary objective (s): to evaluate Intellectual Quotient, Child development, Behavior, Language and investigate link between executive functioning disorders, exposure to ARVs, HIV and family environment.
Abstract Background: Exchange transfusion is a highly complex procedure that requires high levels of expertise. Paediatricians trainees do not have adequate training because opportunities to perform this procedure in practice are scarce. This protocol seeks to compare two educational interventions for exchange transfusions that allow the students to develop competencies to perform the technique in an appropriate and safe way. Methods/design: A randomized parallel single...
The incidence of sepsis (severe infection) has increased over the last four decades. Severe sepsis and septic shock are among the leading causes of death for patients admitted to critical care units with mortality ranging from 20-70% depending on totality of organ dysfunction. Outside of antibiotics and good bedside care, little has changed in the management of this life-threatening problem. Therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) involves the separation of plasma from whole blood. ...
Currently in the United States, the achieved level of glycemic control for adult Latinos with type 2 diabetes (T2D) is sub-optimal compared to the non-Latino Caucasian population. Among Latinos with T2D, there are unique barriers, such as socioeconomic and cultural factors, to starting and optimizing therapies, including insulin. Latinos have cultural beliefs and behaviors specific to this population that should be appropriately addressed in a diabetes self-management education...
This study is evaluating a group-based therapeutic yoga program for burnout. This study aims to understand the feasibility of running the program (i.e. of recruiting participants, the resources required to run the program, etc) and the effectiveness of the program (i.e. in decreasing participants' mental health symptoms).
Rituximab (a monoclonal antibody raised against CD20) is used to treat various immune disorders. In some cases such as treatment of humoral acute rejection of renal transplant, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, vasculitis or cryoglobulinemia, rituximab is often associated with plasma exchange. The pharmacokinetic of the rituximab can be affected by plasma exchange but the knowledge is poor in this matter. The aim of the study is to explore the influence of plasma exchange o...
This study evaluated if the social and cultural activities decrease the incidence of dementia and frailty conditions.
Evidence-based practice (EBP) has improved patient health outcomes. The work environment of nurses is a key element to improving the quality of care and to facilitate EBP, while also improving health outcomes. The CCEC® / BPSO® program consists of the implementation of Good Practice Guides in health organizations in the Spanish territory, and is carried out through a training and participatory methodology, actively involving nurses in the process. The present study tr...

Investigators will using a questionnaire based on several areas such as individual psychological well-being (PGWBI), individual happiness positioning (Keyes Scale) and health status perception (SF-12 Health Survey). Secondary out...
Crescentic IgA nephropathy (CreIgAN) has a poor prognosis despite aggressive immunosuppressive therapy. The efficacy of plasma exchange (PE) in CreIgAN is not well defined. This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of plasma exchange as adjunctive therapy for severe crescentic IgA nephropathy compared to pulse methylprednisolone on a background of oral prednisolone and cyclophosphamide in prevent kidney failure.
To assess the indications, tolerance and side effects of therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) performed at a University Hospital over 8 years
This proposed project will engage American Indian communities through existing partnerships, utilizing a Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) methodology to design a group intervention program to increase the safety of infant sleep environments. Compelling evidence from research in other racial populations suggests that family and cultural norms, attitudes and personal beliefs about infant sleep, safety and comfort are strongly associated with the choice of infant slee...
