Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chronic heart failure (CHF) patients show a marked reduction in exercise capacity. While inadequate gas exchange and resulting hypoxemia appears as the primary factor in COPD, an impaired cardiac output is the predominant explanation for the reduced oxygen delivery in CHF. However, the extent of the contributions of other systemic factors remains unclear. In light of the potential interactions between cardiac output (Qc) and pulmonary hyperinflation, there is surprisingly little data thus far on ventilatory constraints in CHF and on the role of blood flow delivery in COPD which may further limit the exercise capacity. Thus, the purpose of this study was to compare the slope of the Qc versus oxygen uptake (VO2) response through several submaximal cycling loads in patients with moderately severe COPD and with that of moderate to severe CHF patients as well as age-matched healthy control subjects (CTRL). Also examined was the possibility that ventilatory constraints such as dynamic hyperinflation contribute to an abnormal stroke volume response in both diseases.

This book is about the study of association between Helicobacter Pylori (H. pylori) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). In past years, many studies have been carried out to understand the complex relationship between H. pylori infection and COPD. Few researches have been successful in showing the epidemiologic and serologic evidence for relationship between these two phenomenon. In our study, we aimed to investigate the seroprevalence of Helicobacter pylori in patients with COPD and to determine whether there is an association between H. pylori infection and COPD. The results from our study suggest that there is higher prevalence of H. pylori seropositivity in COPD patients than in non-COPD patients and that HP infection has a positive correlation with the severity of COPD showing the prevalence of HP infection increases with the severeness of COPD. But we were not able to find out the reason for H. pylori infection being related to COPD since our study was carried out in a very small scale and short period of time. To understand the complex relationship between H. pylori infection and COPD, we look forward for a better technical support and a bigger study group.

This book is the third in our series describing patient-centered methodologies (PCM). It focuses on both the curative potential and the successful curative impact of medical interventions. It introduces an assessment procedure through which the curative impact of some particular medical intervention against a progressive and potentially fatal disease such as cancer may be ascertained.The assessment procedure’s conclusions are probabilistic in nature. They are generated on an individually tailored, patient-by-patient basis. The curative efficacy of a medical intervention is calculated as a time-phased probability for each separate patient. The intervention’s overall curative efficacy is also calculated, probabilistically, for a given patient population.Suppose that a patient is diagnosed with some form of cancer. Suppose, further, that the patient undergoes a medical intervention known to possess some curative potential, but not guaranteed to cure everybody. For how long after the intervention must that patient wait with no evidence of further disease progression before concluding that the intervention was successful? How much time must elapse with no evidence of disease before concluding that the cancer has been beaten and, therefore, that the patient was cured? The assessment procedure introduced in this book attempts to answer precisely this question.Patient-centered diagnosis, prognosis, and cure assessment all rely on a methodology that generates individually tailored pro...

The effects of intervention can be evaluated in different ways, and objective measurements of changes in lung function are commonly used as the outcome measure. Patient-reported outcome (PRO) is an umbrella term used for all patient-based assessment. One important PRO is health-related quality of life (HRQL), which may be used an an evaluative or discriminative measure. The research showed that completion up to five PRO questionnaires was well accepted by subjects with COPD. HRQL questionnaires might be used for evaluative purposes. HRQL questionnaires appear to have a possibility to be used for discriminative purposes in COPD and asthma, and for comparison of the diseases. Symptoms correlated with HRQL, whereas between lung function and HRQL, the relationship was weaker. HRQL seems to deteriorate with disease severity in COPD and asthma, as measured by lung function, or with age. However, a great variation was noticed.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2015 in the subject Medicine - Internal Medicine, grade: passed, University of Basel, course: Pneumologie, language: English, abstract: Background: The prevalence and nature of upper respiratory changes in patients with COPD and its impact on COPD outcomes are unclear.Methods: Patients with stable COPD GOLD stages 1-4 and a control group without COPD matched in gender and age were recruited at the University Hospital Basel. The difference in the Sino-Nasal-Outcome-20 questionnaire (SNOT-20) score was compared between the COPD cohort and the control group. Secondary outcomes were sub-scores SNOT-Primary Nasal Symptoms (SNOT-PNS), SNOT-Secondary Nasal Symptoms (SNOT-SNS) and SNOT-Quality of Life (SNOT-QOL). Abnormal findings were defined as a value of >12 points and absolute values were compared. Furthermore the Rhino-conjunctivitis Quality of Life questionnaire (RQLQ) and three visual analogue scales (VAS) estimating the amount of nasal secretions, bilateral perception of nasal congestion and nasal itching, were applied. As objective clinical surrogate markers for nasal inflammation, computer tomography (CT) scans of the para-nasal sinuses were performed and assessed with the Newman and the Lund-Mackay scoring system.Results: Data from 83 COPD patients (35 females, mean age: 67 years ± 10) and 34 controls (18 females, mean age: 67 years ± 12) were analysed.

Interpreting Albert Bandura's term "self-efficacy" as the individual's belief in his own abilities to succeed in spite of the given circumstances, this study seeks to identify the influences which lead to self-efficacy in Montessori teachers.The research indicates that Montessori teachers with high levels of self-efficacy have strong mastery experiences that support their attitudes and desired professional goals. The quantitative results also show that an emotional state associated with past experiences is the second best contributor to self-efficacy. Considering that self-efficacy may be most malleable during the early stages of learning, the results of this study serve to enhance the teacher-training experience though the analysis of early obstacles.

Master's Thesis from the year 2001 in the subject Medicine - Neoplasms, Oncology, , language: English, abstract: Weight loss is a common feature in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The clinical importance of weight loss; particularely loss of fat-free mass (FFM) has been demonstrated in its adverse effects on physical performance and quality of life. Moreover; weight loss and a low body weight are unfavorable prognostic factors in survival, independent of lung function.Mechanisms of malnutrition in those patients are not fully understood. Several factors have been implicated. Increased resting energy expenditure (REE) contributes the main hypothesis for weight loss in COPD patients. However, not all patients with COPD who lose weight are hypermetabolic.Recent data have shown that a systemic inflammatory response is present in patients with COPD. A clear evidence for a relationship between weight loss and plasma tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-*) has been shown in COPD patients. TNF-* produces a cachexia-like syndrome in animal models and has been implicated as a mediator of cachexia in several clinical conditions including cancer, chronic heart failure, cystic fibrosis and anorexia nervosa.Nutritional assessment for COPD patients is essential; to identify those individuals who will benifit from nutritional support therapies and to determine baseline values to measure the effectiveness of nutritional intervention. It includes several methods, n...

This study investigated the effect of perceived self-efficacy on low and high achieving students, year level, age and gender in mathematics. The participants in the study were students aged 13-15 years in a secondary school in London. The research investigates how self-efficacy influences mathematics performance in academic settings. The distinctiveness of self-efficacy against other expectancy constructs is highlighted, followed by an exposition of the existing self-efficacy research in mathematics. Findings indicate that highly efficacious students in mathematics perform well than students with low self-efficacy. Self-efficacy is depicted as having a significant effect on mathematics performance and the year level. The study depicts that self-efficacy does not significantly influence age and gender. The measures used in the mathematics questionnaire substantiate the view that particularized or task specific measures of self-efficacy can be combined with the global measures in the explanation and prediction of academic outcomes.

This book highlights the quality assurance efforts of a dental school, located in a developing country, in attempt to meet accreditation standards and improve the quality of patient care. Clinical training constitute a major part of the pre-doctoral dental education curriculum. In their clinical training, the students perform dental procedures on patients under the supervision of experienced faculty members. In clinical training, teaching and learning intersect with service provision. The factors that affect the quality of the students' learning and the factors that affect the quality of the services provided to the patients intertwine. An assessment of the quality of the clinical training programme was conducted using a mixed methods approach. We sought input from the faculty members, the dental students and their patients on several dimensions to evaluate the quality of the clinical training programme. Findings advise the decision makers in their quality improvement and curricular reform efforts. It may be useful to dental schools in other developing countries and to those interested in the quality of dental education and the quality of patient care in dental schools worldwide.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Sport - Sport Psychology, grade: A, City University London, language: English, abstract: The repercussion that term assessments have on students training in a dance conservatoire is a controversial topic. Several authors in sport psychology have shown the effect that manipulated feedback can have on self-efficacy and the existing relationship between self-efficacy and effort. However, these questions have not been previously studied in dance. Therefore, the aims of this investigation are 1) to examine the impact manipulated feedback can have upon the self-efficacy levels in dancers and 2) to analyze if this variable predicts the effort intention for the dancers to improve in the next term. As such, 61 students and 5 teachers from a dance conservatoire participated in an experimental study. Students were randomly divided into 4 groups. Teachers assessed their competence according the conventional criteria (scores from 0 to 10) during a flamenco movement. The first group received upper-evaluated scores, the second group lower-evaluated scores, the third group did not receive scores (control group) and the last group received one score per objectives (e.g. postural control, rhythm, etc) plus the accurate general score. Results show that objective feedback is the most beneficial strategy in terms of self-efficacy and lower-evaluated is the most detrimental for students. In contrast with the initial hypothesis, self-efficacy do...

In 2018, the Alzheimer Society of Canada website showed over half a million people in Canada were living with dementia. That same year, the Alzheimer Association website reported that over 5.7 million in the US were living with a form of memory loss. Unsuspecting family members had to jump into the role of caregiver without warning or training. Often, the caregiver was a spouse. Many caregivers became confused, challenged and eventually overwhelmed from the stress of caring for their loved one. Judith Allen Shone fell into that category. It never occurred to her to ask "what if" her love became ill and she, alone, had to become the one to take care of him. She never dreamed she would have to become a solo caregiver. But that is exactly what happened. It is from her experiences that Shone came to believe no caregiver should be walking their path afraid or all alone. Written for all caregivers and those who support caregivers, Shone juggles humor with insight, as she chronicles the story of an untrained and desperate caregiver who, in her memoir-story style, relates her formidable experiences accompanied by the emotional chaos of caregiving for her loved one with COPD, Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, cancer, and anxiety, with occasional mysteries arising.

Surgical extraction of impacted lower third molar is one of the most frequent intervention in oral surgery. This procedure is often associated with significant post-surgical pain that may have both psychological and social impact on the patient. The aim of this study was to compare two different local anesthetic agents, Articaine & Lignocaine for their anesthetic efficacy with regard to the onset of action, duration of action and postoperative pain perception along with analgesic requirement by the patients after surgical removal of mandibular third molars. The study showed that more effective pain control was obtained with articaine solution as compared to lignocaine which may be attributed to increased time of numbness, less postoperative pain perception & less need for postoperative analgesics by the patients with articaine solution.

The importance of addressing spiritual issues in psychiatry is becoming increasingly recognized. A large body of literature supports a link between religiosity and positive mental health outcomes, and leading authorities in psychiatric diagnosis and training have acknowledged these findings. This is reflected in the presence of the category "religious or spiritual problem" in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and in the inclusion of spirituality in patient assessment guidelines and residency training objectives. Despite this, spirituality is seldom addressed in mental health and many psychiatry residency programs offer little training on the topic. This book reviews the literature on spirituality and psychiatry and contributes a new perspective by exploring psychiatry residents' attitudes, experiences, comfort levels and learning needs in this area. This work should be useful to professionals working in mental health, and to educators and program directors interested in developing curricula to address training needs in this field, with the ultimate goal of promoting holistic patient-centered care.

Nurses work to promote health, prevent disease and help patients cope with illness. They are advocates and health educators for patients, families, and communities. When providing direct patient care, they observe, assess and record patient symptoms, reactions, and progress. Nurses collaborate with physicians in the performance of treatments and examinations, the administration of medications and the provision of direct patient care in convalescence and rehabilitation. This is why nursing considered as a profession.Patient guidance has been an essential component of Registered Nurses' professional role. In today's healthcare delivery system, patient guidance and leading are becoming increasingly important. The public demands more information and control over their health care. Moreover, illness and limited knowledge about medicine, nursing, and the healthcare system mean that patients are often vulnerable and powerless.

Chronic diseases often have a relapsing and remitting course with substantial impact on function and Quality of Life(QOL). Poor compliance of the patient also leads to the reduction in the QOL. The aim of the present work is to improve Physical Component Scores (PCS) and Mental Component Scores (MCS) through effective patient counselling and Compliance Behaviour to reduce the relative risk of death and also to compare effectiveness of ESA (Erythropoietin Stimulating Agent) doses in ESRD patients undergoing Haemodialysis. Initially the mean scores are low in QOL and compliance behaviour in elderly patients and were at higher risk of death in the initial stage of study. In certain age groups the PCS and MCS were significantly improved through effective patient counselling and improvement in compliance behaviour.In conclusion it can be said that QOL can be improved and risk of death can be reduced with the effective patient counselling and compliance behaviour, as there is no deviation in haemoglobin levels, use of 4000 units is preferable than 8000 units. Clinical Pharmacy services as part of a multidisciplinary patient care strategy, have led to improvemnet in patient care and QOL.

Effectiveness means gathering hard clinical data about the physical changes affecting the patient, understanding why the patient is concerned, conveying this to other health care professionals and involving the patient at every stage of management decisions. The evidence for good clinical communication is well established, although there are challenges. While listening is the basis of sound diagnosis and clinical reasoning, its absence affects patient outcomes particularly when patients are not permitted to make their concerns known or when there are gaps in information flow or communication between the professionals caring for them. The ABC of Clinical Communication considers the evidence pertinent to individual encounters between patients and their health professionals, how to achieve efficient flow of information, the function of clinical teams and developing a teaching programme. Topics covered include: The consultation Clinical communication and personality type Shared decision making Communication in clinical teams Communication in medical records Communication in specific situations, including mental health and end of life Teaching clinical communication The chapter authors are clinicians involved in communicating with patients, research and training healthcare professionals of the future. This team reflects the multidisciplinary approach required to develop effective clinical communication.

Surgical training has recently undergone significant changes, driven by patient safety and the reduced training time imposed by the European Working Time Directive. There is an educational gap to the current training framework in the UK and raises the question are we training our surgeons effectively and appropriately for the role they are to perform? This book explores the diverse accounts of surgeons in training through their lived experiences of operative training and maps them to the expectations set out by the Royal Colleges of Surgery in the UK. Different approaches to training and relative success of such strategies as perceived by trainees are discussed. Great concordance in experiences exists with cognitive and social constructive theories of learning. The analysis underlines the importance of learner responsibility and the trainer to effective operative training and that learning achieved through social engagement within a community of learners should not be neglected. These findings and discussion will be of use to both surgical trainees and trainers to enhance the learning experience in the operating theatre both inside and outside the NHS.

Forschungsarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Pflegewissenschaften, Note: 1,7, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg (Institut für Pflege- und Gesundheitswissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Pflegerelevante exemplarische Krankheitsbilder, 38 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Autoren beschreiben mittels dieser qualitativen Einzelfallanalyse die Entlassungssituation einer invasiv beatmeten COPD - Patientin vom Krankenhaus in die Kurzzeitpflege und anschließend in die Häuslichkeit, auf Grundlage des Expertenstandards Entlassungsmanagement 2004. Zugrunde gelegt wird, dass in Deutschland schätzungsweise 3 bis 5 Millionen, in den USA etwa 16 Millionen und weltweit etwa 600 Millionen Menschen an einer COPD erkrankt sind. Somit kann von einem globalen Problem gesprochen werden. Als geeigneter Forschungsansatz wurde die qualitative Forschung gewählt, um den subjektiven Erfahrungen der Betroffenen Rechnung zu tragen. Aus den geschilderten Situationen der Beteiligten - Stationsschwester des Krankenhauses, Pflegedienstleiterin der Kurzzeitpflege, Angehörige, Patient - konnten entstandene Probleme und Unregelmäßigkeiten abgeleitet werden und Lösungsvorschläge gegeben werden. Als Konsequenz für das Pflegemanagement sollten Konzepte bei der Entlassung speziell von COPD - Patienten in die Häuslichkeit entwickelt werden, welche sich an den Expertenstandard Entlassungsmanagement anlehnen.

A study conducted to understand quality of care and patient satisfaction from primary healthcare in Benghazi city. Quality has been defined in this study as doing right things right in a right manner at the right time with a right mix of manpower, equipments, space and management systems and subsystems. Patient satisfaction, the result of quality of care is the comfort level of beneficiaries in terms of care and concern shown by the facility. Beneficiaries are highly satisfied with the quality of care received. Two major significant variables associated with satisfaction are age of patient and selection of facilities. Those in younger age are less satisfied than others. People seek facilities at different locations and reach better satisfaction levels. This study concludes that primary health care facilities are working well effectively. But the efficiency of the system might be of attention in the coming years. This might be made through manpower mix, skill upgradation, human resource development activities and so on. Facilities might also focus on patient satisfaction. Provisions are made to ensure satisfaction of users.

Patient safety culture is how management and staff interact, to protect patients from adverse events. It includes routines, practices, awareness, attitudes and priorities, which in a good patient safety culture make the likelihood for adverse events as small as possible. Surveys of patient safety culture provide senior managers direct access to information about how their employees perceive patient safety in the place where they work. The information helps to direct initiatives to wards and departments where improvement of patient safety is needed the most. This book addresses how patient safety culture can be measured by mapping staff perceptions with the Safety Attitudes Questionnaire (SAQ). Physician and scientist Ellen Tveter Deilkås has documented that the Norwegian translation of the internationally recognized questionnaire, Safety Attitudes Questionnaire ( SAQ ), measures patient safety culture in hospital wards with valid and reliable results. The questionnaire can be used to map and analyze patient safety culture, to reduce the incidence of adverse events in hospitals.

Cultural Competence in America's Schools: Leadership, Engagement and Understanding focuses on explicatingthe impact of culture and issues of race and ethnicity on student learning, teacher and leadership efficacy, andeducational policy making in our nation's public school system. The authors agree with Levin (2012), whopointed out that the challenge of dealing effectively with racial and ethnic diversity in education in traditionallyhomogeneous societies is a global problem. One indicator of this point is revealed in a U.S. study that was commissionedby the National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality, which reported on the serious consequencesfor student achievement and teacher effectiveness in the face of "the gap between teacher training andthe realities of the classroom when it comes to teaching diverse populations and students with special needs."(Public Agenda, 2008, p. 2).

The concept of beauty is central to all human cultures regardless of race, age and sex. Physical appearance has always played a significant role in the development of self conceptualization and self esteem, in the establishment of interpersonal relationships, in employment opportunities and in the quality of life. Dentofacial deformities affect approximately 20% of the population. Patients with Dentofacial deformities may demonstrate various degrees of functional and esthetic compromise. Many patients with Dentofacial deformities can benefit from corrective orthognathic surgery. The specific therapeutic goals vary from patient to patient. These goals are directed towards correction of specific musculoskeletal, dento osseous, and soft tissue deformities. Several factors, presenting either collectively or individually, may indicate the need for orthognathic surgery. Proper patient selection remains the primary factor in successful treatment outcome.

The three potential respiratory disabilities in these patients are - inability to ventilate, inability to cough, and risk of aspiration. Ventilatory insufficiency is mainly related to weakness or failure of the inspiratory muscles. Cough insufficiency is related to inspiratory, expiratory, and upper-airway dysfunction. And the risk of aspiration is predominantly related to upper airway-muscle issues. Appropriate interventions needs to be undertaken in advance of overt failure and respiratory emergency. It is important to note that many of these measurements and interventions are entirely within the scope of the respiratory therapist and requires a successful implementation.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Medicine - Public Health, grade: 2,5, University of Cologne, language: English, abstract: Imbalance between demand for and supply of physicians is an issue regularly addressed by the media, researchers and policy makers. It has been widely spread in many countries for years. Healthcare organizations in both of developed and developing countries have all experienced from that. Physician to patient ratio is one of the important normative population based indicators to measure this imbalance. It equals to the entire number of physicians in a healthcare organization dividing its patient volume within a certain period (e.g., a year). The quotient is often standardized in form of X (number of physicians) per 1,000 patients, or in form of ''1:X'' in order to express the amount of patients (X) that under one physician's management clearly. In comparison with other measurements, this kind of indicators are less complicated and easier tocomprehend. An imbalance between physician demand and supply in a healthcare organization could be explicitly identified and quantified by comparing its actual physician to patient ratio with a ''gold standard''. Unfortunately, a wide-rangesuitable gold standard of physician to patient ratio does not exist. Therefore, healthcare organizations must make great efforts to find their own gold standards. The physician to patient ratio could be easily confounded with the...

This investigation applies self-efficacy theory to explain how using SNSs will affect students' beliefs. The study used questionnaire to conduct empirical research,collect, and analyze data of 286 participants from Umm AL-Qura University in Makkah in KSA. The findings clearly reflect that there is no significant difference between female and male groups in familiarity with SNSs. There is a significant positive correlation between reasons for using SNSs and students' academic self-efficacy. Multiple regression analysis showed only non-academic reasons for using social networking sites technology and it has a positive effect on the students' academic self-efficacy. The results suggest that using SNSs in daily life for non-academic reasons will promote students' academic self-efficacy for informal learning purposes. As well as using SNSs in academic field with regulated learning environment may promote both effective methods of teaching and learning English language.
