Objective: For severe, uncontrolled asthma (SUA), a gap exists between recent scientific advances and their incorporation into clinical practice. Using a Knowledge-to-Action Framework, new knowledge can be translated into evidence-based interventions to improve outcomes. The AstraZeneca U.S. PRECISION initiative aims to apply this Framework to improve recognition and management of SUA. The study objective was to identify factors contributing to gaps in care for patients with SUA. Results from a ...

Background. Sleep difficulties, including insufficient sleep and inadequate sleep hygiene, have been prevalent among children. Sleep deprivation can lead to poor grades, sleepiness, and moodiness. We undertook this study to assess the prevalence of sleep abnormalities among elementary and middle school students in South Texas and how the groups compare with one another. Method. After approval from the appropriate school district for a sleep education program, a baseline survey was taken of eleme...

ObjectivesSleepiness in nurses has been shown to impact patient care and safety. The objectives of this study are to measure sleep quality, sleepiness, fatigue, and vigilance in inpatient nurses and to assess how setting (intensive care unit versus the general floor) and shift worked (day versus nig

Study Objectives : Nocturnal bruxism is associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and GERD is strongly associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Gender and ethnic differences in the prevalence and clinical presentation of these often overlapping sleep disorders have not been well documented. Our aim was to examine the associations between, and the symptoms associated with, nocturnal GERD and sleep bruxism in patients with OSA, and to examine the influence of gender and ethnici...

Objective: To translate and validate the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) for use in Urdu-speaking population. Methods: The original Epworth Sleepiness Scale was translated into the Urdu version (ESS-Ur) in three phases - translation and back-translation; committee-based translation; and testing in bilingual individuals. The final was subsequently tested on 89 healthy bilingual subjects between February and April, 2010, to assess the validity of the translation compared to the original version. Th...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and diabetes mellitus are both highly prevalent disorders. There has been a recent recognition of an association between insulin resistance and sleep apnea. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) has emerged as an effective therapy for treatment of OSA and has been shown to positively influence numerous pathophysiological factors that contribute to cardiovascular risk. There is emerging data that explores the influence of CPAP therapy, insulin sensitivity and gl...

Cloud computing becomes a hot research topic in the recent years. In the cloud computing, software applications and databases are moved to the centralized large data centres, which is called cloud. In the cloud, due to lack of physical possession of the data and the machine, the video and audio data’s may possess more memory space. Existing work on cloud mainly focuses on cloud storage without taking memory consumption into consideration. In this paper, we propose a new Colour Quantisation (CQ) ...
