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 ...


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 ...

Pharmacy, Presentations and Grand Rounds

Introduction

• Geriatric patients (> 65 years of age) have a 3-5% incremental increase in annual occurrence of trauma making it a top five leading cause of death in this population.

• The mortality rate ranges from 15-30%, which is 4-5 times higher than younger patients.

• In 2011, data from the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation (PTSF) demonstrated nearly 32% of injured patients statewide and nearly 50% of the trauma patients at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital (TJUH) were > 65 years.

• Most geriatric patients have comorbidities that are treated with many medications, which may predispose them for falls.

• Although there are many methods to assess ...

Pediatric Emergency Medical Care In Yerevan, Armenia: A Knowledge And Attitudes Survey Of Out-Of-Hospital Emergency Physicians., Aline A. Baghdassarian, Ross I. Donaldson, Andrew D Depiero, Nancy L Chernett, Harsh P. Sule Md

Department of Emergency Medicine Faculty Papers

BACKGROUND: Out-of-hospital emergency care is at an early stage of development in Armenia, with the current emergency medical services (EMS) system having emergency physicians (EPs) work on ambulances along with nurses. While efforts are underway by the Ministry of Health and other organizations to reform the EMS system, little data exists on the status of pediatric emergency care (PEC) in the country. We designed this study to evaluate the knowledge and attitudes of out-of-hospital emergency physicians in pediatric rapid assessment and resuscitation, and identify areas for PEC improvement.

METHODS: We distributed an anonymous, self-administered Knowledge and Attitudes survey to a ...

Lkb1 Deficient Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells Are Vulnerable To Energy Stress Induced By Atp Depletion, Chao Yang

UT GSBS Dissertations and Theses (Open Access)

Lung cancer is the second most frequent cancer in United States, which represents about 13.5% of new cancer cases every year. It accounts for about 27.2% of all cancer related deaths, which is more than the sum of deaths caused by prancretic, breast and colorectal. On average, only about 16% of lung cancer patients survive beyond 5 years. LKB1 is the third most mutated gene in lung cancer. It has been shown that LKB1 is mutated in at least 15% to 30% of NSCLC. Tumor with LKB1 mutation is associated with poor differentiation, high metastasis and worse response ...

The New Oral Anticoagulants For The Treatment Of Venous Thromboembolism: A New Paradigm Shift In Antithrombotic Therapy., Taki Galanis, Gina Keiffer, Geno J Merli

Department of Medicine Faculty Papers

BACKGROUND: Several novel oral anticoagulants have been studied for the prevention and treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in different patient populations. Clinicians will increasingly encounter scenarios in which they must choose among these and conventional anticoagulants for the treatment of this potentially fatal condition.

OBJECTIVE: To review the results of Phase III clinical trials that investigated the novel oral anticoagulants for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Potential advantages and disadvantages of these anticoagulant agents with respect to each other and conventional therapy will also be explored through a case-based approach.

METHODS: A literature search in PubMed ...


Protecting The Skin Of Older Adults Through Surveillance And Pressure Ulcer Prevention Beginning In Emergency Services, Jennifer L. Zoeteman 2014 Grand Valley State University

Protecting The Skin Of Older Adults Through Surveillance And Pressure Ulcer Prevention Beginning In Emergency Services, Jennifer L. Zoeteman

Doctoral Dissertations

ED (emergency department) personnel are admitting to inpatient services increasing numbers of elderly clients who are at risk for skin breakdown. The ED environment is designed for short term care in response to emergent situations. Pressure related injuries originating in the ED lead to both physical suffering and financial burdens. Pressure relief strategies have been actively employed on an inpatient basis without translation to the ED environment. Evidence for best practice in PUP (pressure ulcer prevention) in the ED is not widely embraced. Prevention of PUs is primarily within the scope of nursing practice and amenable to improvements in the ...

Parental Involvement During Adolescence And Contraceptive Use In College, Caroline Payne Purvis, Rosemary V. Barnett, Larry Forthun 2014 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Parental Involvement During Adolescence And Contraceptive Use In College, Caroline Payne Purvis, Rosemary V. Barnett, Larry Forthun

Journal of Adolescent and Family Health

The current study aimed to explore the relationships between parental involvement during adolescence on sexual behaviors among college students. Research has shown that parental involvement decreases as students move from high school to college, but the impact that parents had on their students while in high school continues into college. It is important to determine if one factor relating to the number of sexual partners, sexual activity, and contraceptive use is parental involvement during adolescence. After approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB), an online survey using Survey Monkey was administered to a convenience sample of undergraduate students in a ...

Changes in the US Healthcare System along with the need for institutions of higher education to prepare a work force ready to address the challenges of today and tomorrow have highlighted the need to incorporate technology in its broadest sense as part of the student learning experience. In health professional education, this becomes challenging as programs have traditionally relied on face-to-face instruction along with internship experiences which provide hands on patient care. In addition, learning activities that incorporate higher order critical thinking must be incorporated in order to meet competency based professional expectations as well as expectations in the work ...
