  1. Multiuser-centered resource scheduling for collaborative display wall environments

    Future Generation Computer Systems 45:162 (2015)

    The popularity of large-scale, high-resolution display walls, as visualization endpoints in eScience infrastructure, is rapidly growing. These displays can be connected to distributed computing resources over high-speed network, providing effective means for researchers to visualize, i...
  2. CO2 and inorganic nutrient enrichment affect the performance of a calcifying green alga and its noncalcifying epiphyte.

    Oecologia 177(4):1157 (2015) PMID 25648647

    Ocean acidification studies in the past decade have greatly improved our knowledge of how calcifying organisms respond to increased surface ocean CO2 levels. It has become evident that, for many organisms, nutrient availability is an important factor that influences their physiological responses...
  3. LTB4 promotes insulin resistance in obese mice by acting on macrophages, hepatocytes and myocytes.

    Nature Medicine 21(3):239 (2015) PMID 25706874 PMCID PMC4429798

    Insulin resistance results from several pathophysiologic mechanisms, including chronic tissue inflammation and defective insulin signaling. We found that liver, muscle and adipose tissue exhibit higher levels of the chemotactic eicosanoid LTB4 in obese high-fat diet (HFD)-fed mice. Inhibition of...
  4. One size does not fit all. Management of the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band in pregnancy: a national prospective cohort study

    The Lancet 385:S32 (2015)

    Background Pregnancies are increasingly seen in women with a gastric band, but no guidance exists on band management during pregnancy. Although band inflation can prevent excessive gestational weight gain and its associated complications, it might have detrimental effects on ...
  5. Development and validation of a virtual human vignette to compare nurses' assessment and intervention choices for pain in critically ill children.

    Simulation in Healthcare The Journal of the Soc... 10(1):14 (2015) PMID 25514587 PMCID PMC4315722

    As virtual experiences are increasingly used in health care training and research, it is important that adequate processes are applied for developing valid scenarios. We describe the development and validation of virtual human (VH) vignettes, computer-generated scenarios with animated patients a...
  6. Subacute bacterial endocarditis caused by Cardiobacterium hominis: A case report.

    The Canadian journal of infectious diseases = J... 26(1):41 (2015) PMID 25798154 PMCID PMC4353269

    Cardiobacterium hominis, a member of the HACEK group of organisms, is an uncommon but important cause of subacute bacterial endocarditis. First-line therapy is a third-generation cephalosporin due to rare beta-lactamase production. The authors report a case involving endovascular infection due t...
  7. Finding a depression app: a review and content analysis of the depression app marketplace.

    JMIR mHealth and uHealth 3(1):e16 (2015) PMID 25689790 PMCID PMC4376135

    Depression is highly prevalent and causes considerable suffering and disease burden despite the existence of wide-ranging treatment options. Mobile phone apps offer the potential to help close this treatment gap by confronting key barriers to accessing support for depression. Our goal was to ide...

  9. Parent-to-parent support for parents with children who are deaf or hard of hearing: a conceptual framework.

    American Journal of Audiology 23(4):437 (2014) PMID 25281845

    Parent-to-parent support for parents with children who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH) is identified as an important component of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs for children with hearing loss. The specific aim of this review was to identify the constructs and compone...
  10. Perceptions of the utility and acceptability of an emergency child minding service for health staff.

    Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness 8(6):485 (2014) PMID 25859689

    Tropical Cyclone Yasi in North Queensland activated the disaster management plans at The Townsville Hospital, including the establishment of an emergency child minding service to facilitate the return of staff to work. This report describes the establishment of this service and the results of br...
