Purpose: This study explored the experiences of NICU nurses in caring for infants with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Design: A qualitative research approach was used with open-ended questions employing computer-assisted personal interviews. Sample: Fourteen NICU nurses employed in a regional...

Despite growing interest in the biomechanical mechanisms of sports-related concussion, ice hockey and the youth sport population has not been studied extensively. The purpose of this pilot study was: 1) to describe the biomechanical measures of head impacts in youth minor ice hockey players; and, 2)...

The significance of the Internet, as a tool for health researchers has yet to be determined. Although search engines have been developed to use the Internet in health database information retrieval, the current practice is for health researchers to use the Internet as a billboard to post facts and i...

Taurine status and pregnancy outcome were assessed in rats fed low dietary taurine and varying doses of guanidinoethyl sulfonate (GES), a structural analogue of taurine. Female Sprague–Dawley rats (225–270 g) were mated overnight and assigned to one of four groups from day 0 to 20 of gestation...

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world, and its prevalence is expected to increase appreciably in the coming decades. As such, more research is necessary to understand the etiology, progression and possible preventative measures to delay or to stop the development of this dis...

The purpose of this presentation is to describe an approach in which bivariate correlation followed by exploratory factor analysis and structural equation modelling was used to make sense of kinematic parameters for the purpose of predicting time to skate six meters. Two studies were completed in or...

Head rotation, shoulder extension and rotation, ankle plantar and dorsiflexion, hip flexion, and sit and reach (SR) scores were examined in 41 women and 39 men, aged 45–75 years. The SR gave more reproducible data than the other measurements (intraclass test/retest correlation over 8 months, r = ....

Background With the invention of the ion-selective electrode (ISE), ionic magnesium (iMg) is a common blood assay. This could be advantageous, as iMg is the biologically active form of Mg. There is some evidence that iMg has considerable within subject variability. Results Individual ranges averag...

Isometric handgrip force, isokinetic knee flexion and extension torque, and anthropometric data were obtained on 67 older men and women (ranging in age from 45 to 75 years, mean 59.7 years). Hydrostatic and skinfold estimates of lean body mass were quite closely correlated with each other in this sa...

It is well established that habitual aerobic exercise training is associated with an increase in arterial compliance. A small number of studies have examined the effects of an acute bout of aerobic exercise on measures of arterial compliance, with the conclusion that short duration exercise leads to...

This poster/demo describes the development, implementation, and evaluation of an "on-line" introduction to an undergraduate course in quantitative methods. The virtual curriculum modules developed for the course provided a forum in which information, knowledge, expertise, and questions could be expl...

Having a greater understanding of what influences the older adults decisions to move and the characteristics of older adults who are more likely to move is valuable to help plan for the housing needs of the expanding older adult population. The authors examined how contextual, push and pull factors ...

Cardiorespiratory and gas exchange responses to a moderate, standardized treadmill walking task showed a weak circadian rhythm, with larger superimposed peaks attributable to feeding. However, both rhythms became progressively attenuated during a period of sleep deprivation. A method of exploring th...

There is a growing interest in training for and competing in race distances that exceed the marathon; however, little is known regarding the vascular effects of participation in such prolonged events, which last multiple consecutive hours. There exists some evidence that cardiovascular function may ...

Traditionally data processing in applied biomechanics has relied on descriptive approaches. Although these are effective exploratory techniques, they may not provide an understanding of the interaction between the variables that describe the event across repeated sampling. Factor analysis is a stati...
