Pleural effusion is defined as an accumulation of fluid in the pleural space in excess of 15 to 20mls. The aetiology for the development of a pleural effusion includes changes in hydrostatic or colloid-osmotic pressure of pleural and pulmonary capillaries, changes in pleural vascular permeability and impaired lymphatic drainage. About ...

This article presents an overview of perioperative nurses' perceptions and experiences of continuing professional education (CPE). Four themes emerged from 23 interviews: attitudes and culture (background); deciding to study (going in); student experience (process); and outcomes (going out). My findings indicate transferability of other studies to perioperative nursing, and suggest ...

Introduction--Morphine is used regularly in day surgery despite its known side- effects. We assessed whether this delayed discharge.

Working as an agency nurse has not been easy, but it has been a great way to explore Australia and the different hospital systems--private and public.

Elizabeth Kenny became world-famous in her day for her treatment of paralysed children especially those suffering from paralytic poliomyelitis. Young doctors and nurses of my generation, in the 1940's and 50's, were really scared of getting 'polio'. A medical student a year ahead of me at Oxford died in an ...

Pain in older people, and particularly for those people with dementia, is an underrecognised and undertreated problem of growing magnitude. Occupational therapists, although well positioned with a range of skills and resources to help older people with pain and their caregivers, must first become educated about the issues of pain ...

A service-wide audit was conducted (audit 1, 2002) to ascertain the balance of occupation-focused versus generic tasks being undertaken by occupational therapists. This identified that 66% of all tasks were occupation focused, whereas only 41% of all assessments could be described as such. Recommendations were pursued to implement occupation-focused assessments. ...

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is used to describe the different subgroups of arthritis in children. JIA is the most common chronic rheumatic condition in children. The long-term consequences are not limited to physical disabilities but also have an impact on the child's social, emotional and cognitive development. Home exercise programmes ...

Pet ownership is an occupation that has benefits for human health and well-being. However, research on pet ownership mainly addresses the benefits of interactive pets, such as dogs and cats. Some individuals are unable to participate in the occupation of interactive pet ownership and, therefore, may be deprived of the ...

Background: Older patients are usually assessed by occupational therapists in hospital before going home. However, for many frail older adults, this assessment in an unfamiliar environment might not be as representative of their functional abilities as an assessment at home. The aim of this literature review was to determine if ...

Interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) is a research method gaining in popularity, particularly in health psychology and related fields. Derived from phenomenology, as the name suggests, it has potential for occupational therapy as an underpinning framework for research. This method was developed to enable researchers to provide participants with the opportunity ...

An in-depth analysis was carried out with expressed sequence tags (ESTs) for genes in and near the HMW-GS loci. Considerations for using ESTs are discussed, including the occurrence of chimeric and aberrant HMW-GS ESTs. Complete gene sequences demonstrated the feasibility of constructing accurate full-length coding regions from EST assemblies and ...

Selection of wheat germplasm for a range of quality traits has been a challenging exercise because of the cost of testing, the variation within testing data, and a poor understanding of the underlying genetics. The objective of this study was to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) underlying quality traits in ...

Estimation of the genetic relatedness of traditional olive cultivars with genetic markers and phenotypic data enables progress in plant breeding, management of genetic resources, and protection of both breeders' rights and certified premium products. We used amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLLs), simple sequence repeats (SSRs), and quantitative and qualitative morphological ...

A high-density genetic linkage map of papaya, previously developed using an [F.sub.2] mapping population derived from the intraspecific cross AU9 x SunUp, was enriched with AFLP markers. The comprehensive genetic map presented here spans 945.2 cM and covers 9 major and 5 minor linkage groups containing 712 SSR, 277 AFLP, ...

Microsatellites or simple sequence repeats have become the markers of choice for marker-assisted selection because of their low template DNA requirement, high reproducibility, and high level of polymorphism. This study investigated a new set of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) EST-derived SSR markers designed to target gene sequences expressed during grain ...

Animal vocalizations are good examples of signals that have been shaped by sexual selection and often contribute to resolve contests or the choice of mates. We relate the mass of the sound-producing muscles of a highly vocal fish species, the Lusitanian toadfish (Halobatrachus didactylus (Bloch and Schneider, 1801)), with the ...

Size and bone mineralization of deer antlers are related to testosterone concentrations, and antler cast is observed after withdrawal of testosterone concentration. Our objectives were to determine if (i) contact with hinds stimulates antler development and increases hard antler period length in pampas deer (Ozotoceros bezoanicus (L., 1758)) and (ii) ...

The spermatheca acts as a repository for sperm deposited by the male and, in the African migratory locust (Locusta migratoria migratorioides (Fairmaire and Reiche, 1849)), is situated dorsal to the lateral and common oviducts. In the locust, eggs mature in the ovaries and are ovulated into the lateral oviducts where ...

Mercury and parasitism have been positively correlated in free-ranging birds. One proposed explanation is that mercury reduces host immunity, resulting in a greater susceptibility to parasitism. However, alternative explanations should be addressed to further inform and test hypotheses about relationships between mercury and parasitism. We investigated whether total mercury and ...

False killer whales (Pseudorca crassidens (Owen, 1846)) depredate fish caught by the North Pacific pelagic longline fishery, resulting in loss of target species catch and the whales themselves becoming bycaught. This incidental take of false killer whales exceeds sustainable levels. In an effort to address a potential solution to reducing ...
