The Effects Of Increasing Running Speed On Vgrf And Asymmetry, 2020 East Tennessee State University
The Effects Of Increasing Running Speed On Vgrf And Asymmetry, Kaela M. Hierholzer
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Biomechanical and physiological parameters related to running performance are usually studied separately. However, evaluating both aspects together could be beneficial in improving athletic performance. The purpose of this study was to observe the change in peak vGRF and asymmetry as speed increases, while observing physiological responses during a O2maxtest. Data from athlete monitoring of 12 cross-country and triathlon athletes were analyzed. The athlete monitoring protocol included three unweighted countermovement jumps and a O2maxtest performed by the athletes. The athletes had an average O2maxof 53.4 ± 7.7 mL/kg/min, while their average vGRF ...
"A Comparison Of Variable Selection Methods Using Bootstrap Samples From Environmental Metal Mixture Data", 2020 University Of New Mexico
"A Comparison Of Variable Selection Methods Using Bootstrap Samples From Environmental Metal Mixture Data", Paul-Yvann Djamen 4785403, Paul-Yvann Djamen
Mathematics & Statistics ETDs
In this thesis, I studied a newly developed variable selection method SODA, and three customarily used variable selection methods: LASSO, Elastic net, and Random forest for environmental mixture data. The motivating datasets have neuro-developmental status as responses and metal measurements and demographic variables as covariates. The challenges for variable selections include (1) many measured metal concentrations are highly correlated, (2) there are many possible ways of modeling interactions among the metals, (3) the relationships between the outcomes and explanatory variables are possibly nonlinear, (4) the signal to noise ratio in the real data may be low. To compare these methods ...

Peer-Led Education Expedites De-Prescribing Proton Pump Inhibitors For Appropriate Veterans, 2020 University of San Diego
Peer-Led Education Expedites De-Prescribing Proton Pump Inhibitors For Appropriate Veterans, Mary H. Bowman
Doctor of Nursing Practice Final Manuscripts
Costly proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have been widely prescribed since the 1990’s for prevention and treatment of ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Evidence published since 2012 demonstrates risks associated with taking PPIs longer than eight weeks. Primary care providers (PCPs) mostly de-prescribe PPIs for persons not meeting criteria for long term use. Many patients resist discontinuation.
A three-month evidenced based practice (EBP) education project was conducted by a nurse practitioner to improve PCP peer de-prescribing successes with appropriate patients in an outpatient California based veteran Primary Care Clinic. Fifteen PCPs were pretested about usual care practices between two ...

Recruiting And Retaining Np Preceptors, 2020 The University of San Francisco
Recruiting And Retaining Np Preceptors, Angelica Renteria
Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Projects
It is estimated that by 2020, the shortage of primary care providers will reach over 20,000. This has led to a surge of nurse practitioner (NP) programs across the nation. Recruiting and retaining preceptors is of paramount importance. Barriers and incentives to precepting must be identified in order to maximize teaching capacity. More effective ways of training NP students (NPs) need to be explored to capitalize on the time preceptors invest with students. The adoption of the OMP teaching model may facilitate training for the preceptor and improve the learning of NPs due to its simplicity and efficiency.
The Effect Of The Timing Of A Hospice Referral And The Perceived Quality Of Care By The Family, 2020 Dominican University of California
The Effect Of The Timing Of A Hospice Referral And The Perceived Quality Of Care By The Family, Caitlin Tran
Nursing | Senior Theses
Hospice care is a specialized type of palliative care for patients with a time-limiting illness. Despite its benefits, hospice remains underutilized. A key reason behind the underutilization are untimely referrals, often made during the last weeks or days of the patient’s life. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the existing barriers towards hospice that play into late referrals and its effect on patient/family satisfaction. This information will be examined to propose a pilot research study for further exploration.

The Effect Of Dance Movement Therapy On The Mood Of Hospitalized Psychiatric Adolescents, Amy Chiu
Nursing | Senior Theses
Mental illness in children has increased over all aspects throughout the years to right now (CDC, 2019). Many of these children do get treatment for these disorders but there are still a percent that do not receive any treatment or find effective ways to maintain non-pharmaceutical alternatives for mood stabilization. The alternative therapies that are introduced in hospital settings plays a role in allowing for alternative therapies to be apart of the treatment plan for patients. Dance Movement therapy (DMT) is an alternative therapy that uses movement to conduct change in patient’s emotions based on their own choices of ...

Sexual Health Assessments In Nursing Practice: Quantitative Analysis Of Nurses’ Behaviors And Perceptions, 2020 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
Sexual Health Assessments In Nursing Practice: Quantitative Analysis Of Nurses’ Behaviors And Perceptions, Allison Culp
Sexual health is an important yet often neglected component of patient care. Most research on sexual health assessment and its place in nursing occurred from the 1970s to the early 2000s, leaving a gap in understanding nurses’ current attitudes and beliefs toward assessing patients’ sexual health. Frequencies by which sexual health assessments (SHA) are performed by nurses today is also unknown. The objective of this study was to provide an updated understanding of attitudes, beliefs, and practices of nurses regarding SHA. An online-based Likert-scale survey was administered via social media platforms for professional nurses to complete. Results indicate that nurses ...
Mount Fuji Sign Following Nasal Polypectomy: Conservative Management Of Pneumocephalus, 2020 Thomas Jefferson University
Mount Fuji Sign Following Nasal Polypectomy: Conservative Management Of Pneumocephalus, Matthew Szymaszek, Gentian Toshkezi
Department of Emergency Medicine Faculty Papers
Pneumocephalus is seen in conjunction with a variety of conditions, particularly traumatic injury, neurosurgical, and ears, nose, and throat (ENT) procedures. We describe the successful, non-operative management with supplemental oxygen of symptomatic pneumocephalus following polypectomy without further complication. This case adds to other case reports of pneumocephalus but differs in the non-invasive, conservative management with supplemental oxygen obviating the need for more invasive neurosurgical intervention such as decompressive craniectomy, burr holes, or drain placement.

Limited data exists on the management and outcome of patients with isolated acute cervical internal carotid artery (cICA) occlusion presenting with normal neurologic exam after experiencing a period of neurological deficits. These patients are at risk for progressive neurologic deterioration but have not yet progressed to stroke. Current management is no intervention due to intervention risk of embolization. We aim to determine the optimal management of patients with isolated acute cICA occlusion presenting with a normal neurological exam after experiencing neurological deficits.
Patients and methods
Data was collected on 3 patients with acute cICA occlusion that presented with a ...
