Automated Detection Of Puffing And Smoking With Wrist Accelerometers, Qu Tang 2015 Northeastern University

Automated Detection Of Puffing And Smoking With Wrist Accelerometers, Qu Tang

Electrical and Computer Engineering Master's Theses

Real-time, automatic detection of smoking behavior could lead to novel measurement tools for smoking research and "just-in-time" interventions that may help people quit, reducing preventable deaths. This paper discusses the use of machine learning with wrist accelerometer data for automatic puffing and smoking detection. A two-layer smoking detection model is proposed that incorporates both low-level time domain features and high-level smoking topography such as inter-puff intervals and puff frequency to detect puffing then smoking. On a pilot dataset of 6 individuals observed for 11.8 total hours in real-life settings performing complex tasks while smoking, the model obtains a cross ...


Macro Level Design Of Healthcare Networks Using Optimization And Simulation, Onur Uzunlar 2015 Northeastern University

Macro Level Design Of Healthcare Networks Using Optimization And Simulation, Onur Uzunlar

Industrial Engineering Master's Theses

Macro level design of networks is usually considered as determining the locations and capacity levels of the resources as well as the assignment of entities to these resources. Given the high costs of healthcare coupled with a focus on access and preventive health, many healthcare systems are engaged in macro-level planning of their overall network topology, care location, market expansion, and merger strategies. The use of systems engineering models to help inform these decisions can be very effective at designing both cost-efficient and qualified healthcare services, especially in cases involving complex and competing considerations.

This thesis presents several systems engineering ...

The Lived Experiences Of Teenage Mothers That Fostered Resiliency, Courtney Allisson Pellegrino 2015 Northeastern University

The Lived Experiences Of Teenage Mothers That Fostered Resiliency, Courtney Allisson Pellegrino

Education Doctoral Theses

Adolescent mothers often encounter challenges while balancing the developmental tasks of adolescence with the demands of motherhood, which places them at risk of potential negative trajectories (Lowenthal & Lowenthal, 1997; Patel & Sen, 2012). However, when the process of the negative trajectory is interrupted, adolescent mothers adapt to the challenges and become resilient, in terms of positive educational, occupational, and parenting outcomes (Silver, 2008). The purpose of this qualitative, Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) was to examine the lived experiences of five women ages 18 and older who were adolescent mothers and answer the overarching question: How do adolescent mothers who have experienced academic, educational ...


Investigation Of Low Back And Shoulder Demand During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation: The Effect Of Different Compression-Ventilation Ratios, Richard Scott Dainty 2015 Wilfrid Laurier University

Investigation Of Low Back And Shoulder Demand During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation: The Effect Of Different Compression-Ventilation Ratios, Richard Scott Dainty

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

Background: The current American Heart Association (AHA) standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is performed with a compression-ventilation ratio of 30:2 (standard CPR), meaning 30 compressions are applied to the chest followed by the administration of two breaths to the victim. Some evidence has shown that performing continuous chest compressions rather than standard CPR with breaks in chest compressions for administering breaths, may increase survival rates after cardiac arrest. Cont-CPR has been shown to be very fatiguing in nature, with a significant drop in chest compression force within the first two minutes of CPR. The purpose of this study was to ...


Targeted Cancer Therapy Systems: An In Silico Study Of Radiohalogenated Ligands In The Estrogen Receptor And The Synthesis Of A Molecular Toolkit For The Fabrication Of Customizable Nanoparticles, Kelton Kerry Barnsley 2015 Northeastern University

Targeted Cancer Therapy Systems: An In Silico Study Of Radiohalogenated Ligands In The Estrogen Receptor And The Synthesis Of A Molecular Toolkit For The Fabrication Of Customizable Nanoparticles, Kelton Kerry Barnsley

Chemistry Master's Theses

Chemotherapy is often limited by off-target toxicity and the development of multi-drug resistance in response to treatment. Strategies which reduce off-target toxicity by passively or actively targeting cancer cells may improve the efficacy of chemotherapy. Herein, two projects relating to targeted therapy are described. In the first project, the binding modes of 1,1-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-phenylethylenes (THPEs), a class of synthetic estrogens previously developed by our group, in the human estrogen receptor alpha-ligand binding domain were studied using molecular modeling programs YASARA AutoDock and Schrodinger Glide. The results were internally consistent and supported the observation that a bromine or iodine ...

Fnirs Measures Of Prefrontal Cortex Lateralization During Stuttered And Fluency-Enhanced Speech In Adults Who Stutter, Danra M. Kazenski

Graduate College Dissertations and Theses

The present study compared lateralization of cortical activation patterns in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) of adults who stutter (AWS) and typical speakers (TS) as measured with functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) in habitual and fluency-enhanced speaking conditions.

Participants were AWS (n = 11) and gender- and age-matched TS (n = 11) who completed speaking tasks in three condition blocks: (1) habitual speech using no speaking strategy (2) prolonged speech after receiving short-term training in fluency-shaping strategy-use (3) syllable-timed speech after being trained to speak in rhythm with a metronome at 92 beats per minute.

The three primary dependent variables were mean change ...

Influence Of Planning Resources On Gait Control In Parkinson’S Disease, Frederico P. Faria 2015 Wilfrid Laurier University

Influence Of Planning Resources On Gait Control In Parkinson’S Disease, Frederico P. Faria

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

Movement disturbances in individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD) have been associated with difficulties to plan complex actions. Performance of simple and complex actions overloads resources for individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD). However, it is unclear if central resources required to plan gait adjustments while walking exacerbate gait disturbances of patients with PD. More specifically, it is unclear how gait impairments, sensory processing, and the dopaminergic system influence the load on processing resources (e.g. cognitive load) during the planning of step modifications. In order to investigate the relative influence of these factors on cognitive load and its impact ...


Chronic Betahistine Co-Treatment Reverses Olanzapine's Effects On Dopamine D2 But Not 5-Ht2a/2c Bindings In Rat Brains, Jiamei LIAN, Xu-Feng Huang, Nagesh B. Pai, Chao Deng 2015 University of Wollongong

Chronic Betahistine Co-Treatment Reverses Olanzapine's Effects On Dopamine D2 But Not 5-Ht2a/2c Bindings In Rat Brains, Jiamei Lian, Xu-Feng Huang, Nagesh B. Pai, Chao Deng

Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute

Olanzapine is widely prescribed for treating schizophrenia and other mental disorders, although it leads to severe body weight gain/obesity. Chronic co-treatment with betahistine has been found to significantly decrease olanzapine-induced weight gain; however, it is not clear whether this co-treatment affects the therapeutic effects of olanzapine. This study investigated the effects of chronic treatment of olanzapine and/or betahistine on the binding density of the serotonergic 5-HT2A (5-HT2AR) and 5-HT2C (5-HT2CR) receptors, 5-HT transporter (5-HTT), and dopaminergic D2 receptors (D2R) in the brain regions involved in antipsychotic efficacy, including the prefrontal cortex (PFC), cingulate cortex (Cg), nucleus accumbens (NAc ...

Absence Of Jc Viremia In A Case With Jc Virus Nephropathy: A Case Report And Literature Review, Samer Bani-Hani MD, FACP, Uma Gunasek MD 2014 Tennessee Medical Association

Absence Of Jc Viremia In A Case With Jc Virus Nephropathy: A Case Report And Literature Review, Samer Bani-Hani Md, Facp, Uma Gunasek Md

Tennessee Medicine E-Journal

BK virus associated nephropathy (BKVAN) is an important cause of graft dysfunction with a high rate of graft loss. Current literature describes the pathophysiology of Polyoma Virus Associated Nephropathy (PVAN) induced by BKV but it lacks detailed definition of allograft nephropathy induced by JC virus (JCV). BKVAN is typically associated with BK Viremia, and the latter is the most commonly used screening measure for BKVAN in most transplant centers [1]. We are reporting a case of JCV associated nephropathy in renal allograft recipient who did not have JC viremia during the entire course of his disease and did not respond ...

Chylous Ascites Secondary To Alcoholic Cirrhosis: Controlled With Octreotide, Parag Brahmbhatt Md, Antwan N Atia, Pranav Patel Md, Bhaesh Barad Md, Amanda Vanlandingham Do, Ravindra Murthy Md

Tennessee Medicine E-Journal

Chylous ascites is characterized by the accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the peritoneal cavity. The most common causes of chylous ascites in developed countries are abdominal malignancy, lymphatic abnormalities, and cirrhosis; but tuberculosis and filariasis accounts for the majority of cases in developing countries. We report a case of chylous ascites caused by alcoholic liver cirrhosis controlled by octreotide.
