Reticulocyte Indices In A Canine Model Of Nutritional Iron Deficiency, Michael Fry, Claudia Kirk May 2006

Reticulocyte Indices In A Canine Model Of Nutritional Iron Deficiency, Michael Fry, Claudia Kirk

Claudia A Kirk

BACKGROUND: Reticulocyte indices, especially reticulocyte hemoglobin content (CH retic), have shown promise as markers of iron deficiency (ID), but there have been no prospective investigations of reticulocyte indices in experimental models of ID. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to compare reticulocyte indices with conventional hematologic and biochemical indices as markers of ID in dogs. METHODS: Iron deficiency was induced in 7 dogs by feeding an iron-deficient diet, and corrected by restoring dietary iron and by giving iron parenterally. Blood samples were collected at weekly intervals. Results of hematologic and biochemical tests were compared using t-tests and receiver operator ...

Comparison Of A Low Carbohydrate-Low Fiber Diet And A Moderate Carbohydrate-High Fiber Diet In The Management Of Feline Diabetes Mellitus, N Bennett, D Greco, M Peterson, Claudia Kirk, M Mathes, M Fettman

Claudia A Kirk

This study compared the effects of a moderate carbohydrate-high fiber (MC-HF) food and a low carbohydrate-low fiber (LC-LF) food on glycemic control in cats with diabetes mellitus. Sixty-three diabetic cats (48 male castrated, 15 female spayed) were randomly assigned to be fed either a canned MC-HF (n = 32) food or a canned LC-LF (n = 31) food for 16 weeks. Owners were blinded to the type of diet fed. CBC, urinalysis, serum chemistry panel, fructosamine concentration and thyroxine concentration were determined on initial examination, and a complete blood count, serum chemistry panel, urinalysis and serum fructosamine concentration were repeated every 4 ...


Primary Hair Growth In Dogs Depends On Dietary Selenium Concentrations, S Yu, K Wedekind, Claudia Kirk, R Nachreiner Mar 2006

Primary Hair Growth In Dogs Depends On Dietary Selenium Concentrations, S Yu, K Wedekind, Claudia Kirk, R Nachreiner

Claudia A Kirk

Selenium (Se) plays an important role in hair growth. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of dietary selenium concentration on hair growth in dogs. Thirty-six beagles were stratified into six groups based on age, gender and body condition score. The dogs were fed a torula yeast-based canned food for 3 weeks. Then the dogs were fed varying amounts of selenium supplied as selenomethionine for an additional 24 weeks. Analysed selenium concentrations in the experimental foods for the six groups were 0.04, 0.09, 0.12, 0.54, 1.03 and 5.04 mg/kg dry ...

Together For Kids: Three-Year Project Report: A Project Administered By Community Healthlink, Inc., Melodie Wenz-Gross, Carole C. Upshur, Lynn Hennigan

Implementation Science and Practice Advances Research Center Publications

The Together for Kids (TFK) project, funded by The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts and the United Way of Central Massachusetts, has been the result of the dedicated work of over 30 childcare, health care, child welfare and social service agencies concerned about early childhood mental health issues. These concerned constituents formed a coalition to address the increasing incidence of young children exhibiting challenging behaviors in preschool classrooms, as reflected nationally with current estimates ranging from 7% to 25% (Raver & Knitzer, 2002; Webster-Stratton & Hammond, 1997). These challenging behaviors typically include biting, hitting, throwing things, defying adults, or becoming withdrawn and unable to interact with others, and result in disrupted early childhood classrooms and children being expelled from programs (Grannan et al, 1999; Swanson, 2001). The problem of preschool expulsions has received national attention in recent years, and in fact a very ...

Managing Patient Service In A Diagnostic Medical Facility, Linda V. Green, Sergei Savin, Ben Wang Jan 2006

Managing Patient Service In A Diagnostic Medical Facility, Linda V. Green, Sergei Savin, Ben Wang

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

Hospital diagnostic facilities, such as magnetic resonance imaging centers, typically provide service to several diverse patient groups: outpatients, who are scheduled in advance; inpatients, whose demands are generated randomly during the day; and emergency patients, who must be served as soon as possible. Our analysis focuses on two interrelated tasks: designing the outpatient appointment schedule, and establishing dynamic priority rules for admitting patients into service.

We formulate the problem of managing patient demand for diagnostic service as a finite-horizon dynamic program and identify properties of the optimal policies. Using empirical data from a major urban hospital, we conduct numerical studies ...

Who Flourishes In College? Using Positive Psychology And Student Involvement Theory To Explore Mental Health Among Traditionally Aged Undergraduates, Virginia Miller Ambler

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between undergraduate students' mental health and their engagement in the educational experience. The researcher identified traditionally-aged college students (18-23) who were flourishing and distinguished them from students who were moderately mentally healthy and/or languishing according to Keyes' (2002) continuum of mental health model. Mental health was the dependent variable. Student involvement was defined as the extent to which students engage in empirically derived good educational practices as measured by the National Survey of Student Engagement's College Student Report (2005). The five benchmark measures of student engagement were independent ...

Koori Fathering Program: Pilot Phase Evaluation Report, Sallie Newell, Anthony Franks, Donna Lloyd, Greg Telford, Chris Binge

School of Education

The Koori Fathering Program was developed in response to demand from local Aboriginal organisations and individuals to improve the health and wellbeing of their communities. Family functioning was a stated priority and specific requests were made for training around parenting skills and relationships. A literature review reinforced this felt need by highlighting how the quality of early childhood experiences, including parenting style, affects children’s social, cognitive, emotional and physical development and wellbeing and, consequently, their overall physical and mental wellbeing throughout their lives. An extensive local mapping process found that, although many parenting programs were available, Aboriginal men were ...
