This study therefore investigated the impacts of RRCC on air pollution based on detailed household heating data obtained from intensive face-to-face interviews in Shandong province, China. The total contributions and specific contributions of coal, stoves, and coal-stove combinations to air pollution were simulated using the WRF-CAMx-PSAT model. The RRCC for heating had a considerable impact on air pollution, contributing 36.1, 9.1, and 16.1% of atmospheric SO2, NOx, and PM2.5 in winter, respectively. Different coal-stove combinations had different impacts on air pollution and mitigation efficiencies. The combination of bi...

A mental health issue stemming from life’s experiences has culturally been seen as a sign of weakness, but actually is part of a very complex architecture that’s unique from person to person. In order to gain an understanding of how stress plays a role in the lives of first responders, we need to start answering some hard questions: What leads to burn-out? What’s associated with PTSD? How is lack of sleep affecting the mental health states of first res...

Abstract We aim to investigate the relation between depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and inflammatory factors in patients with severe burn injury. Psychological assessment was carried out using PTSD checklist (PCL) involving a 17-item self-report questionnaire (PCL-17) and the Hamilton Rating Scale for depression (HAMD-24). The serum IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8, and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) were determined using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Correlation analysis was performed to analyze the correlation between the factors and scores of PTSD and depression. Compared with the PCL-...

Schmidt Although posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is associated with self-injurious behavior, it is currently unclear what mechanisms may account for this relationship.
