Small Area Variations In Health Care Delivery, John E. Wennberg Md, Mph Dec 1973

Small Area Variations In Health Care Delivery, John E. Wennberg Md, Mph

Open Dartmouth: Peer-reviewed articles by Dartmouth faculty

Health information about total populations is a prerequisite for sound decision-making and planning in the health care field. Experience with a population-based health data system in Vermont reveals that there are wide variations in resource input, utilization of services, and expenditures among neighboring communities. Results show prima facie inequalities in the input of resources that are associated with income transfer from areas of lower expenditure to areas of higher expenditure. Variations in utilization indicate that there is considerable uncertainty about the effectiveness of different levels of aggregate, as well as specific kinds of, health services. Informed choices in the public ...


Right-Left Visual Field Performances Of Congenitally Deaf And Normal Hearing Subjects, Merle Applebaum-Rosenberg Dec 1973

Right-Left Visual Field Performances Of Congenitally Deaf And Normal Hearing Subjects, Merle Applebaum-Rosenberg

Speech and Hearing Sciences ETDs

The notion of cerebral dominance has been explored since the time of Broca. Two non-invasive techniques designed to assess hemispheric dominance have subsequently been developed. These two methods are commonly referred to as dichotic listening (simultaneous auditory stimulation) and rapid visual field stimulation (tachistoscopic viewing).

It has been found in dichotic listening studies that when verbal material is presented simultaneously to both ears, the stimuli are correctly identified most often in the right ear. Similar results have been found in tachistoscopic studies, with verbal material eliciting a right visual field advantage. Collectively, these findings have been used to support a ...

Efficacy Of Betaprone With Ultraviolet Irradiation On Hepatitis B Antigen In Human Plasma Pools (A Retrospective Study), Gerald A. Logrippo, Hajime Hayashi Dec 1973

Efficacy Of Betaprone With Ultraviolet Irradiation On Hepatitis B Antigen In Human Plasma Pools (A Retrospective Study), Gerald A. Logrippo, Hajime Hayashi

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

In a retrospective study, hepatitis B antigen (HB Ag) was found in 14 lots of human plasma pools (16-20 liters each) that had been treated by the combined Betaprone (BPL) with ultraviolet (UV) irradiation procedure. No evidence of clinical hepatitis was found during a six-month follow-up after 185.2 liters of HB Ag positive plasma were Infused into 257 patients. Since HB Ag positive blood products treated by BPL with UV produced no clinical hepatitis, it is evident that our treatment is efficacious against hepatitis virus agents.

Electrical Alternans In Cardiac Tamponade, Andreas P. Niarchos Dec 1973

Electrical Alternans In Cardiac Tamponade, Andreas P. Niarchos

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Of nine patients with pericardial effusion due to various causes, four developed cardiac tamponade. Electrical alternans was present In all four, being total in three, and ventricular in one. From the diagnostic point of view, the alternans corresponded with the clinical diagnosis of cardiac tamponade and the radiological signs of a large pericardial effusion. The pericardial fluid was hemorrhagic in three patients and transudate (hydropericardium) in the fourth. In two patients alternans was present with heart rates below 100 per minute. Apart from the exact (1:1) type of electrical alternans, three new types are described; a 2:1, 3 ...


Surgical Treatment Of Liver Trauma: Technical Considerations And Case Reports, C. Grodsinsky, T. A. Fox Jr., B. E. Brush Dec 1973

Surgical Treatment Of Liver Trauma: Technical Considerations And Case Reports, C. Grodsinsky, T. A. Fox Jr., B. E. Brush

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

The incidence of abdominal trauma, and thus that of liver trauma, has been increasing in the past few years. Improvements in the understanding of the anatomy of the liver and improvements in diagnostic techniques have resulted in shorter and better operations with less delay between injury and surgery. Improvements in transportation to adequate hospital facilities and vigorous resuscitative measures have also contributed to lowering the mortality rate for this type of injury. Suggestions are made for the surgical management of liver injuries, together with illustrative case reports.

The Effectiveness Of Oxandrolone In Promoting Linear Growth In Growth Hormone Deficient Children, Charles B. Wolf, Raymond C. Mellinger, Lewis B. Morrow, M. Saeed-Uz Zafar Dec 1973

The Effectiveness Of Oxandrolone In Promoting Linear Growth In Growth Hormone Deficient Children, Charles B. Wolf, Raymond C. Mellinger, Lewis B. Morrow, M. Saeed-Uz Zafar

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

This two-year study consisted of a comparison of oxandrolone and growth hormone for the treatment of five children with documented growth hormone deficiency. Previously, androgens have been reported to be relatively ineffective in accelerating linear growth In growth hormone deficient children. Oxandrolone was administered for one year. Growth hormone was added in the second six months and then was given as a single agent in the third six months. Growth accelerated markedly in all patients. Only one child showed more rapid growth with the addition of growth hormone while two children actually grew more rapidly under the Influence of oxandrolone ...


Near Basal Blood Pressure: A Method Applicable To Clinical Practice, John R. Caldwell Dec 1973

Near Basal Blood Pressure: A Method Applicable To Clinical Practice, John R. Caldwell

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

A method is described for determining near basal blood pressure (NBBP) measurements that is applicable to outpatient clinic or office use in daily practice. In our clinic, patients' mean casual pressure was significantly higher than the NBBP, the difference being 40 mm Hg systolic (p < .001) and 18 mm Hg diastolic (p < .001). In hospitalized patients the casual blood pressure was higher than the fourth to sixth day hospital average, and the hospital average was higher than NBBP. The difference between the last two was 15 mm Hg systolic (p <. 005) and 9 mm Hg diastolic (p < .005). In patients recording blood pressure readings at home the average weekly home-recorded blood pressure was not significantly different from NBBP during the same week, -1 mm Hg systolic (p > .80) and 4 mm Hg diastolic (p > .10). NBBP by this method offers a practical way to estimate the average daily blood pressure.

Chlorophyll Levels And Leaf Chlorplast Ultrastructure As Ecotypic Characters In Xanthium Strumarium L., Farag Abdulrahman Dec 1973

Chlorophyll Levels And Leaf Chlorplast Ultrastructure As Ecotypic Characters In Xanthium Strumarium L., Farag Abdulrahman

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

The major objective of the work was to clarify some of the adaptive mechanisms that a common widespread species would show as a possible requirement for survival in its natural habitats. Analysis of various populations of Xanthium (cocklebur) indicated differences in chlorophyll levels and leaf chloroplasts ultrastructure between populations. The study also revealed some insight into intrapopulational variation in dark requirements for flowering of selected populations. In addition, caloric values of dried leaf material of cocklebur were analyzed for interpopulational differences. It was evident that higher chlorophyll levels are correlated with increase in latitude of origin and a corresponding decrease ...

A Study Of Water-Soluble Inhibitory Compounds (Algicides) Produced By Fresh-Water Algae, Denny O. Harris, Manhar C. Parekh Nov 1973

A Study Of Water-Soluble Inhibitory Compounds (Algicides) Produced By Fresh-Water Algae, Denny O. Harris, Manhar C. Parekh

KWRRI Research Reports

A complex system of growth inhibitors was observed in the green algae (Volvocaceae). Inhibitors were found in the culture filtrates of some genera which limit their own growth (autoinhibitors) while others in the family produce substances which check the growth of other genera (heteroinhibitors). These inhibitors were destroyed by autoclaving. It was decided that Pandorina morum, which produced the strongest inhibitor and Volvox tertius, the most sensitive to the inhibitor would make an excellent model system for a study of the chemical and physical properties of these naturally occurring algicides. The algicide could be removed from actively growing cultures about ...

The Effects Of Atropine On The Growth And Respiration Of Two Species Of Bacteria Normally Inhabiting The Human Gastro-Intestinal System, Mary M. Ramos Oct 1973

The Effects Of Atropine On The Growth And Respiration Of Two Species Of Bacteria Normally Inhabiting The Human Gastro-Intestinal System, Mary M. Ramos

Theses & Dissertations

It is the purpose of this study to determine whether the drug atropine has an effect on bacteria found normally inhabiting the human body, most specifically the gastrointestinal system. Atropine is one of the oldest drugs in medicine. It is derived from the roots and leaves of solanaceous plants such as henbane and Jimson weed. Atropine is often termed a belladonna alkaloid because it can also be found in the deadly nightshade plant, Atropa belladonna. Atropine is a highly competitive antagonist of acetylcholine at receptor sites in smooth muscles, cardiac muscle, and various glandular cells (5). Therefore, its effects are ...

Adolescent Pregnancy And Poverty: Implications For Social Policy, Clara L. Johnson Oct 1973

Adolescent Pregnancy And Poverty: Implications For Social Policy, Clara L. Johnson

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

Excerpt from the full-text document:

Adolescent pregnancy, per se, has been devoted little consideration by clinical observers and empirical researchers. For the most part, such pregnancies have received attention only insofar as they have occurred without the moral and legal sanctions of matrimony. This concern with illegitimacy has had the effect of blinding theorists and researchers to a whole segment of the adolescent pregnant population--the married teenager. Further, the adverse effects of adolescent pregnancy have been shrouded by moral precepts.

From existing evidence there appears to be no doubt that the married teenage girl is an integral part of the ...
