Authors' And Editors' Perspectives On Peer Review Quality In Three Scholarly Nursing Journals, M.M. Shattell, P. Chinn, Sandra Thomas, W.R. Cowling

Sandra Thomas

This study examined the quality of peer review in three scholarly nursing journals from the perspectives of authors and editors. Specifically, the study examined the extent to which manuscript reviews provided constructive guidance for authors to further develop their work for publication, and for editors to make informed and sound decisions on the disposition of manuscripts.


Laterality, Perception, And Action During The Size-Weight Illusion, Gavin Buckingham, Nathalie Ranger, Melvyn Goodale 2009 The University of Western Ontario

Laterality, Perception, And Action During The Size-Weight Illusion, Gavin Buckingham, Nathalie Ranger, Melvyn Goodale

Gavin Buckingham

In the classic size-weight illusion (SWI), a small object will feel heavier than an larger object of equal weight (Charpentier, 1891). Individuals continue to perceive this illusory difference in weight long after their gripping and lifting forces have scaled to the actual, identical, mass of the illusion-inducing stimuli (Flanagan & Beltzner, 2000).

The independence of our weight perception and fingertip force application has only been quantified in the right hand of right-handers. The immunity to this perceptual illusion may be affected by manual asymmetries (e.g., Gonzalez, Ganel & Goodale, 2006).

We examined perception of heaviness and fingertip force scaling in right- ...

Abstract Background: . Suicide is the prime cause in most of the lawsuits and litigations in clinical practice. Accurate assessment of suicide depends upon the information of risk factors. Concept of risk is continuously evolving. objective of the present paper is to reconceptualize ‘risk’ based upon contemporary thought and biopsychosocial understanding of psychopathology. Method: we reviewed all the risk factors in electronic search and compiled list of 76 published risk factors. These factors were re-categorized by prioritizing according to the multidimensional nature of risk. Result: we attempted to re-group risk factors into constituent domains e.g. biological; environmental; spiritual; social & psychological domains. We propose a different evaluation of risk factors which has following characteristics. 1. A net sum of ‘risk’ shall be the quantum of risk factors in relation to protective factors in a given individual, at a given time. Risk consists of a ‘set’ of vulnerability & resilience, operating as mutually dependent factors. 2. Absolute risk in an individual is ratio ...

Comparison Of Chemistry Analytes Between 2 Portable, Commercially Available Analyzers And A Conventional Laboratory Analyzer In Reptiles, S Mccain, Bente Flatland, Juergen Schumacher, E Clarke, Michael Fry

Bente Flatland

Background: Advantages of handheld and small bench-top biochemical analyzers include requirements for smaller sample volume and practicality for use in the field or in practices, but little has been published on the performance of these instruments compared with standard reference methods in analysis of reptilian blood. Objective: The aim of this study was to compare reptilian blood biochemical values obtained using the Abaxis VetScan Classic bench-top analyzer and a Heska i-STAT handheld analyzer with values obtained using a Roche Hitachi 911 chemical analyzer. Methods: Reptiles, including 14 bearded dragons (Pogona vitticeps), 4 blue-tongued skinks (Tiliqua gigas), 8 Burmese star tortoises ...

Use Of A Constant Rate Infusion Of Insulin For The Treatment Of Hyperglycemic, Hypernatremic, Hyperosmolar Syndrome In An Alpaca Cria, T Buchheit, Carla Sommardahl, Nicholas Frank, Jerry Roberson

Carla S. Sommardahl

CASE DESCRIPTION: A 3-day-old 9.5-kg (21-lb) female alpaca cria was examined because of lethargy and anorexia. CLINICAL FINDINGS: Physical examination revealed hyperthermia, muscle fasciculations, and tremors of the head. Seizures were also observed, which indicated CNS dysfunction. Hyperosmolar syndrome (HOS) was diagnosed on the basis of hyperglycemia, hypernatremia, azotemia, high plasma osmolarity, and metabolic acidosis. TREATMENT AND OUTCOME: A constant rate infusion of regular insulin was administered with hypo-osmolar fluids to treat HOS, and blood glucose and sodium concentrations were successfully lowered. Neurologic deficits resolved with treatment, and the cria was discharged 11 days after admission. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Administration ...

Calcinosis Circumscripta In The Antebrachiocarpal Joint Of A Horse, Ferenc Toth, James Schumacher, Shelley Newman 2009 Selected Works

Calcinosis Circumscripta In The Antebrachiocarpal Joint Of A Horse, Ferenc Toth, James Schumacher, Shelley Newman

Ferenc Toth

A 4-year-old, Spanish Mustang mare was evaluated because of a swelling on the dorsolateral aspect of its right carpus. The horse had no gait abnormalities. During radiographic examination of the carpus, a granular, radiopaque mass, approximately 3 cm in diameter, adjacent to the proximal row of carpal bones, was observed. The mineralised mass, which was located within the antebrachiocarpal joint, was removed through an arthrotomy with the horse anaesthetised. Histological features of the mass showed it to be overlain by partially denuded synovium, and included large deposits of mineral surrounded by multinucleated giant cells and separated by septa of mature ...

Physical Rehabilitation Of The Canine Neurologic Patient., Marti Drum 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Physical Rehabilitation Of The Canine Neurologic Patient., Marti Drum

Marti G Drum

Rehabilitation therapy is a key component of recovery from neurologic disease. Each patient requires a rehabilitation protocol designed specifically for the patient's neurologic condition, owner expectations and level of participation, and expertise of the veterinary team. Initial therapy for nonambualtory patients may include standing exercises, range of motion, pain control, toe pinch exercise, aquatic exercise, and basic nursing care. Sling assisted walking with foot protection, cavaletti rails, and physioroll balancing are used commonly for ambulatory patients. As recovery progresses, stair climbing, carrying or pulling weights, resistance band walking, swimming against resistance, and exercises specific to the home environment are ...

Targeting Obesity Among African Americans Through Nutrition, Fitness, And Faith: Designing And Testing A Community-Driven Pilot Program, Luvenia Cowart, Diana Biro, Timothy Wasserman, Ruth Stein, Lindsey Reider

Luvenia W. Cowart

Obesity raises the risk for many chronic diseases and poor health outcomes. African Americans have the highest rates of excess weight in the nation, and standard weight management programs have not worked well with this population. The Genesis Health Project, a community-designed, culturally competent intervention to reduce obesity and promote healthy lifestyles, represents a successful partnership among Syracuse University, local Black churches, and several sponsors to empower families of color to adopt and sustain positive health practices across the lifespan. This article describes the Phase I design and pilot-testing of this demonstration project, and reports the results of the first-year ...

Serial Evaluation Of Physiologic, Pathological, And Behavioral Changes Related To Disease Progression Of Experimentally Induced Mannheimia Haemolytica Pneumonia In Postweaned Calves., G. Hanzlicek, B. White, D. Mosier, D. Renter, David Anderson

David Edgar Anderson, DVM, MS, DACVS

OBJECTIVE: To determine the usefulness of physiologic, behavioral, and pathological changes as objective indicators of early respiratory disease in calves with Mannheimia haemolytica pneumonia. ANIMALS: 14 crossbred beef steers. PROCEDURES: Disease was experimentally induced in healthy calves through endoscopic pulmonary inoculation of M haemolytica. Calves were necropsied on days 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, and 9 after inoculation. Physical examination variables (rectal temperature, heart rate, and respiration characteristics), clinical illness score, and degree of activity were assessed 3 times daily beginning 4 days prior to inoculation and continuing throughout the study. Twice before inoculation and on days 1, 2, 3 ...
