The usefulness of basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training in school systems has been questioned, considering that young students may not have the physical or cognitive skills required to perform complex tasks correctly. In the study conducted by Fleishhackl and coworkers, students as young as 9 years were able to successfully and effectively learn basic CPR skills, including automate...
In this study, quantitative structure-retention relationship (QSRR) methodology employed for modeling of the retention times of 16 banned pesticides in nano-liquid chromatography (nano-LC) column. Genetic algorithm-multiple linear regression (GA-MLR) method employed for developing global and consensus QSRR models. The best global GA-MLR model was established by adjusting GA parameters. Three de...

Objectives: The objectives of this study were to evaluate the capability of a research volunteer registry to retain community-dwelling African American older adults, and to explore demographic and health factors associated with retention. Method: A logistic regression model was used to determine the influence of demographics, health factors, and registry logic model activities on retention in a...
In partnership with 30 colleges and universities, the National Center for Academic Transformation (NCAT) has proven that it is possible to improve quality and reduce cost in higher education. Course redesign using information technology is key. Primary Findings Twenty-five of the 30 projects showed a significant increase in student learning. (The other five showed learning equivalent to tradi...

Objective: Fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) posts have recently become more popular for restoring endodontically treated teeth because of providing esthetics, better stress distribution and lower risk of root fracture. Resistance against tensile forces dislodging the post from the root canal is a prerequisite for these posts. This study aimed to evaluate the tensile retention (strength) of in...
Acute urinary retention in aseptic meningitis is rarely encountered, and the diagnosis of aseptic meningitis may be less than straightforward, because its symptoms and neurological signs are occasionally mild or absent. We report a case in which acute urinary retention provided an appropriate indication for the diagnosis of aseptic meningitis as the cause of an undiagnosed fever.
Proposed EU regulations on data retention could require every provider to keep accounting logs of its customers’ Internet usage. Although the technical consequences of these requirements have been investigated by consultancy companies, this paper investigates what this accounting data could be, how it can be obtained and how much data storage is needed. This research shows that every gigabyte o...
This is a review cTf cases treated here for retention of the placenta during the last 9 years. During this period 18,591 women were confined, of whom 64 had retained placenta due to uterine inertia, contraction ring, or adhesions of the placenta or membranes. Fifty patients were cured, 4 were discharged otherwise and 10 died, giving a mortality of 15.62 per cent (see table I). The third stage o...

TO THE EDITOR: Wesson and coworkers (4) make a commendable attempt at explaining the interesting beneficial effect of alkali administration to ameliorate progressive renal failure. They conclude that patients with moderately reduced renal function already have proton retention, which may have clinical consequences. They demonstrate an alkali-sensitive mechanism in terms of endothelin and aldost...
