Does Public Health Start Within Jails? A New Incentive For Reform Of Wisconsin's Bail System, Mahmood N. Abdellatif Jul 2022

Does Public Health Start Within Jails? A New Incentive For Reform Of Wisconsin's Bail System, Mahmood N. Abdellatif

Marquette Law Review

Wisconsin’s Milwaukee and Dane Counties are among many jurisdictions in the country employing modern bail reforms, specifically the Public Safety Assessment (PSA). Most of these jurisdictions adopted the PSA before the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, but are increasingly relevant as the virus continues to derail public health measures. Through the intersection of detainees, correctional officers, judicial officials, attorneys, and visitors, millions of Americans filter in and out of correctional facilities on an annual basis. These facilities serve as a microcosm of society and breeding ground for mass infection. The COVID-19 pandemic amplified an existing ...

Exploring Racism In Health Pedagogy, Marian Evans Md, Mph, Jean M. Breny Phd, Mph, Anuli Uzoaru Njoku, Yan Searcy Phd Jun 2022

Exploring Racism In Health Pedagogy, Marian Evans Md, Mph, Jean M. Breny Phd, Mph, Anuli Uzoaru Njoku, Yan Searcy Phd

Race and Pedagogy Journal: Teaching and Learning for Justice

Utilizing a classroom incident that prompted formal public and informal private conversations about race across the campus of a New England regional comprehensive university, we suggest that the discussion of race in public health and health promotion is often compartmentalized. The pedagogy of public health and health promotion often examines race in terms of health disparities, access to health care, cultural sensitivity and competence among public health providers. While this examination is applauded, it does not adequately confront racism and the experience of race by students in actual public health classrooms. Race, we argue, appears theoretical and does not acknowledge ...


Rainbow Perfect And Near-Perfect Matchings In Complete Graphs With Edges Colored By Circular Distance, Shuhei Saitoh, Naoki Matsumoto, Wei Wu Jun 2022

Rainbow Perfect And Near-Perfect Matchings In Complete Graphs With Edges Colored By Circular Distance, Shuhei Saitoh, Naoki Matsumoto, Wei Wu

Theory and Applications of Graphs

Given an edge-colored complete graph Kn on n vertices, a perfect (respectively, near-perfect) matching M in Kn with an even (respectively, odd) number of vertices is rainbow if all edges have distinct colors. In this paper, we consider an edge coloring of Kn by circular distance, and we denote the resulting complete graph by Kn. We show that when Kn has an even number of vertices, it contains a rainbow perfect matching if and only if n=8k or n=8k+2, where k is a nonnegative integer. In the case of an odd number ...

Reaching Out To Occupational Therapists, Alan Fyall Jun 2022

Reaching Out To Occupational Therapists, Alan Fyall

Rosen Research Review

Accessible tourism is a growing area of tourism research. The belief that all tourism facilities, products, and services should be accessible to those with disabilities drives research in tourism ethics and sustainability. However, a key voice is being ignored. Occupational therapists play a critical role in enabling people with disabilities to participate in the activities of daily life, including leisure. Dr. Alan Fyall believes it is time for interdisciplinary research with occupational therapists to properly understand accessible tourism.

Revascularization Techniques For Infra-Popliteal Peripheral Artery Disease In Diabetic Foot: A Literature Review, Raden Suhartono, Ghany H. Wijaya

The New Ropanasuri Journal of Surgery

Foot ulcers are one of the problems that are often encountered in uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. With diabetic peripheral neuropathy, the typical clinical symptoms of PAD (peripheral arterial disease) may be obscured, leading to critical limb ischemia (CLTI). Diabetes may accelerate atherosclerosis that diminishes blood flow in PAD—further, diabetic patients with PAD often enfaces infra-popliteal lesions and require revascularization. However, studies on revascularization techniques in infra-popliteal PAD remain minimal. We reviewed the literature on EBSCO, and PubMed focused on the revascularization techniques in PAD, namely: expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), saphenous vein graft (SVG), atherectomy, surgical revascularization first, revascularization with endovascular bypass ...

Clinical Applications Of Direct Cortical Stimulation During Awake Craniotomies. Commentary On Passive Functional Mapping Using Infrared Thermography In Epilepsy Awake Surgery., Ramiro Antonio Perez De La Torre, Ramanathan Siddarth, Pérez Ramírez Pedro, Santiago Noé

Archives of Neurosurgery

As clinicians, we rely on various imaging methods to identify abnormal brain lesions. We can distinguish this myriad of neurological disorders by using imaging alone or together with either or both electrophysiological monitoring and direct cortical stimulation. This last alternative is the most frequently used approach to diagnosing brain lesions requiring awake craniotomies for adequate management. Awake craniotomies have become the standard of care for focal lesions, including vascular malformations like cavernous angiomas, intrinsic brain tumors, gliomas, vasculitic brain lesions, postinfectious brain lesions, brain metastasis, and also for epilepsy surgery. Surgery for epileptic patients requires multidisciplinary team interactions and a ...


Safe And Effective Prescribing With Dyslexia: A Collaborative Autoethnography, Sebastian C. K. Shaw, Michael Okorie, John L. Anderson Jun 2022

Safe And Effective Prescribing With Dyslexia: A Collaborative Autoethnography, Sebastian C. K. Shaw, Michael Okorie, John L. Anderson

The Qualitative Report

Prescribing medicines is the most common patient-level intervention made by doctors in the United Kingdom. However, this is associated with a potential for harm. Whilst dyslexia can bring many strengths, it also impacts reading and writing abilities and therefore has the potential to contribute to errors in the prescribing process if dyslexic doctors are unsupported. This paper explores the experiences of Seb – regarding prescribing and prescribing education – as a dyslexic medical student and doctor. We hope that this might spark more research on this overlooked issue. This is a collaborative, analytic, autoethnographic study within an interpretivist paradigm. Firstly, Seb wrote ...

Journal of the Saudi Heart Association

Introduction & Aim of Work: Transcatheter treatment for critical pulmonary stenosis and membranous pulmonary atresia has become the gold standard of care in many centers. We aimed at evaluating the predictors of outcome in interventions for treatment of duct-dependent right ventricular outflow tract obstruction with intact interventricular septum. Subjects & Methods: 68 cases with pulmonary atresia with intact interventricular septum (PA/IVS) and 50 cases with critical pulmonary stenosis (CPS), all younger than 3 months of age, were operated during the period of 10 years; excluding patients with tricuspid valve annulus Z-score smaller than -4, evidence of right ventricular-dependent coronary circulation or additional malformations. Results: Age, weight, body surface area as well as tricuspid & pulmonary valve Z-scores were significantly less in PA/IVS; right ventricular pressure was similar in both groups however procedural success and survival to hospital discharge was higher in the CPS group. Lower age, weight and body surface area were associated with procedural failure. Weight was the only predictor of procedural success; while weight and lower post-procedural right ventricular pressure were independent predictors for survival to hospital discharge. Post-procedural right ventricular pressure and length of stay were less in the ...
