Psychometric properties of the Satisfaction With Life Scale in people with traumatic brain, spinal cord, or burn injury: a National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research Model System study - Amtmann D, Bocell FD, Bamer A, Heinemann AW, Hoffman JM, Juengst SB, Rosenberg M, Schneider JC, Wiechman S, McMullen K.

This study evaluated the measurement properties of the Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) in a sample of 17,897 people with spinal cord injury (48%, n = 8,566), traumatic brain injury (44%, n = 7,941), and burn injury (8%, n = 1,390), 1 year following inj...

Adimora, Janet M. Turan, Edward A. Frongillo, Bulent Turan, Sheri D. WeiserAbstractMaterial-need insecurities (including insecurities in basic resources such as income, food, housing, and healthcare) are widespread in the United States (US) and may be important predictors of poor health outcomes. How material-need insecurities besides food insecurity are experienced, however, remains under-researched, including how multiple mater...

Conclusions and ImplicationsAlthough group differences were not found when considering parent-reported sleep problems, more frequent sleep problems were positively associated with increased forgetting by children with DS relative to those who were TD. Although future experimental work is needed to determine causality, these results suggest that improved sleep in children with DS might reduce forgetting, ultimately improving long-term recall memory.

Exodus 31 completes the lawgiving, anticlimactically. First, for no particular reason, we get the names of two artisans about whom we learn nothing and who never appear again except to be mentioned in this way.31 Then theLord said to Moses,2 “See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,3 and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills —4 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze,5 to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of crafts.6&nbs...

If it’s the UNISON LGBT+ conference, then it must be time for the annual UNISON LGBT+ recruitment awards! Sure enough, in Bournemouth this morning, Josie Bird, the union’s president, was on hand to pass out this year’s coveted trophies. “The presidential team continue to be amazed at how many weekends our LGBT+ members are out and about at Pride and other community events – not only at the huge prides in big cities across our nations that get media coverage, but at local grass root prides in local parks too,” she told delegates. “Having local branches at these events has not only h...

Phage therapy is now being considered a promising treatment options to fight against antibiotic resistant pathogens. Hence, we introduce a novel PVA-SA hydrogel based wound dressing system for topical delivery of bacteriophages and antibiotic to treat infected burn injuries. Hydrogel membrane provides wound healing...

PietrzakAbstractConverging evidence suggests that veterans with co-occurring PTSD/MDD represent a high-risk group for poor mental health compared to those with PTSD alone. To date, however, little is known about the specific factors that may increase vulnerability for and help buffer risk for comorbid PTSD/MDD. The purpose of this study was to provide a population-based characterization of sociodemographic, risk, and protective variables associated with comorbid PTSD/MD...

ConclusionsThis work proposed using an acceleration sensor as a reliable method of sleep apnea screening, detection of an apnea event, sending alert to the patient, and detection of the patient lying position. The developed device is more economical, comfortable, and convenient than existing systems for not only the patients but also the doctors. The patients can easily use this device in their home environment.Graphical abstract

Publication date: Available online 16 November 2019Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Susan Sangha, Maria M. Diehl, Hadley C. Bergstrom, Michael R. DrewAbstractEvery day we are bombarded by stimuli that must be assessed for their potential for harm or benefit. Once a stimulus is learned to predict harm, it can elicit fear responses. Such learning can last a lifetime but is not always beneficial for an organism. For an organism to thrive in its environment, it must know when to engage in defensive, avoidance behaviors and when to engage in non-defensive, approach behaviors. Fear should be suppressed i...

We present a data processing method for HSI remission spectra based on a five-layer model of perfused tissue that generates perfusion parameters for every layer and presents them as depth profiles. The modeling of the radiation transport and the solution of the inverse problem are based on familiar approximations, but use partially heuristic methods for efficiency and to fulfill practical clinical requirements. Results: The parameter determination process is consistent, as the measured spectrum is practically completely reproducible by the modeling sequence; in other words, the whole spectral information is transformed int...
