Community and occupational health concerns in pork production: a review.
Public concerns relative to adverse consequences of large-scale livestock production have been increasingly voiced since the late 1960s. Numerous regional, national, and international conferences have been held on the subject since 1994. This paper provides a review of the literature on the communit...
The feasibility of early physical activity in intensive care unit patients: a prospective observational one-center study.
Early rehabilitation is feasible and safe in patients in the ICU for longer than 1 week. The chair-sitting intervention was associated with nonsignificant oxygenation improvement. The tilting-up intervention was an effort as intense as walking....
Serologic diagnosis of human bocavirus infection in children.
Impact of improved air quality during the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta on multiple cardiovascular and respiratory outcomes.
We observed similar reductions in O3 concentrations in several other cities in the Southeastern United States. We observed little or no evidence of reduced ED visits during the Olympic Games; the estimates were sensitive to choice of analytic model and to method of adjusting for temporal trends. The...
Effects of a clinical pathway for video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) on quality and cost of care.
CP implementation had positive effects on process quality. Specifically, catheter management was improved and a good pain control achieved. Patients benefited from shortened stay and were treated at lower cost. A clear effect on outcome quality was not found. CPs are a promising tool for quality imp...
Respiratory medication prescriptions before and after bariatric surgery
Of 320 surgical patients, 64 (20%) filled at least 1 respiratory medication prescription for a total of 468 prescriptions during the 2-year observation period. Of the prescriptions filled, 35% were beta-agonists, 38% inhaled corticosteroids, 12% oral corticosteroids, 15% leukotriene antagonists, and...
Comprehensive smoke-free legislation and displacement of smoking into the homes of young children in Hong Kong.
The prevalence of exposure to SHS at home and outside home have both increased among primary school students in Hong Kong post-legislation. Comprehensive smoke-free legislation without strong support for smoking cessation might have displaced smoking into the homes of young children....
The impact of a 100% smoke-free law on the health of hospitality workers from the city of Neuquén, Argentina.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of 100% smoke-free environment legislation on respiratory and sensory irritation symptoms and respiratory function among bar and restaurant workers from the city of NeuquÃ©n, Argentina. Pre-ban and post-ban studies without a comparison group i...
Evaluation of infants and children with refractory lower respiratory tract symptoms
When evaluating an infant or child presenting with recurrent respiratory symptoms, several diagnoses must be considered. The workup should include assessment of the risk factors for asthma and careful investigation into the specific symptoms. Recurrent or persistent wheezing and/or coughing often re...
Detection and estimation trends linked to air quality and mortality on French Riviera over the 1990-2005 period
We obtained significant decreasing trends. By considering the ozone mean values in urban areas over the 1997-2005 period, an increase of 3.0% year(-1) was obtained with annual averages and 3.9% year(-1) with median values. A clear increasing trend for PM(10) ambient concentrations is obtained. In ad...
