Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy: Definitive Care for the Critically III Patients

Within an effective command and control system to coordinate regional response, surge capacity in critical care depends on three crucial elements: (1) “stuff,” medical equipment and supplies; (2) “staff,” appropriately trained health professionals to competently care for critically ill and injured patients; and (3) “space,” the physical location suitable for safe provision of critical care. […]

Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy: Enhanced Coronary Calcification Determined by Electron Beam CT Is Strongly Related to Endothelial Dysfunction

Coronary artery calcification has been shown to play an important role in the development of atherosclerosis and is strongly associated with the total plaque burden proved in previous histopathologic studies. The use of electron beam CT (EBCT) for accurate quantitative measurements has led to an increased interest in understanding the clinical importance of coronary calcium. […]

Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy: Intermittent Positive Pressure Breathing in Patients with Respiratory Muscle Weakness

Patients with quadriplegia, muscular dystrophy, and other forms of neuromuscular disease demonstrate significant abnormalities in chest wall and lung mechanics which are attributed to ventilatory muscle weakness. These abnormalities place these patients at significant risk to develop life-threatening respiratory complications. Previous investigators have described a reduction in chest wall compliance in patients with neuromuscular weakness. […]

Canadian Health and Care Mall: Discussion of Quadriceps Weakness Is Related to Exercise Capacity in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

In the present study, we found that QF is reduced in patients with IPF, and this weakness correlates with exercise limitation as well as lung function impairment in those patients. Among these variables, VC and QF were particularly significant contributing factors according to the stepwise analysis. To our knowledge, this is the first report clarifying […]

Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy: Discussion of Cognitive Impairment in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Associated Hypoxemia

This study shows that a large majority of patients with sleep apnea and associated hypoxemia have cognitive impairment. In addition, this study demonstrates that patients with sleep apnea and associated hypoxemia have poorer cognitive functioning than such patients without hypoxemia. The hypoxemic patients with sleep apnea had a significantly greater number of performance scores in […]

Results of Effects of Medroxyprogesterone Acetate in Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Table 2 gives the total time in apnea as a percentage of total sleep time, the number of episodes of apnea per hour of sleep, and the decrements in Sa02 during apnea for each patient before, during, and after treatment. Table 3 gives the same information for episodes of disordered breathing. All patients continued to […]

Canadian HealthCare Mall: Results of Blood and Plasma Glucose

After excluding 31 patients who did not authorize their medical records to be reviewed for research, 816 simultaneous bGlu and pGlu measurements were found for 197 patients. The mean age of these patients was 56 years (SD, 15.8 years), 95.4% were white, and 51.8% were women. The blood samples had been obtained on four occasions […]
