Background: Preventing unintended pregnancy is critical for women living with HIV (WLWH) to safely achieve their reproductive goals. Family planning services should support WLWH at risk of repeat unintended pregnancies. We examined the relationship between unintended pregnancy and subsequent contraception use among WLWH in Uganda.

Study design: This was a retrospective analysis of data from a longitudinal cohort of individuals initiating antiretroviral therapy (ART), restricted to women with pregnancy (confirmed via urine β-hcg testing) between 2011–2013. The exposure of interest was intended vs unintended pregnancy, and the outcome was self-report of modern contraceptive use (hormonal methods, intrauterine device, sterilization ...


A Quality Improvement Project To Determine The Incidence And Prevalence Of Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Best Practice Anesthesia Guidelines, And The Incidence Of Perioperative Cardiac And Respiratory Complications After The Implementation Of The Stop-Bang Questionnaire, Bradly Diamond, Gregory Guerrier, Cody Holliman, Robert Marrero, Tyler Nelson 2019 The University of Southern Mississippi

A Quality Improvement Project To Determine The Incidence And Prevalence Of Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Best Practice Anesthesia Guidelines, And The Incidence Of Perioperative Cardiac And Respiratory Complications After The Implementation Of The Stop-Bang Questionnaire, Bradly Diamond, Gregory Guerrier, Cody Holliman, Robert Marrero, Tyler Nelson

Doctoral Projects

Patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are at risk for perioperative respiratory and cardiovascular compromise (Opperer et al., 2016). Unfortunately, almost 90% of patients with moderate-to-severe OSA are not diagnosed and unaware of their disorder; however, they remain at increased perioperative risks (Singh et al., 2015). The STOP-BANG questionnaire was developed to meet the need for a reliable, concise, and efficient screening tool for OSA risk. The facility at which this project was conducted did not utilize a prescreening OSA risk tool. The facility not using a prescreening OSA risk tool is especially important because the State of Mississippi currently ...


The Effects Of Alcohol On Plasma Lipid Mediators Of Inflammation Resolution In Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Anne Barden, Sujata Shinde, Michael Phillips, Lawrence Beilin, Emilie Mas, Jonathan M. Hodgson, Ian Puddey, Trevor A. Mori 2019 Edith Cowan University

The Effects Of Alcohol On Plasma Lipid Mediators Of Inflammation Resolution In Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Anne Barden, Sujata Shinde, Michael Phillips, Lawrence Beilin, Emilie Mas, Jonathan M. Hodgson, Ian Puddey, Trevor A. Mori

ECU Publications Post 2013

Background

Type 2 diabetes mellitus is characterized by peripheral insulin resistance and low-grade systemic inflammation. Inflammation resolution is recognised as an important process driven by specialised pro-resolving mediators of inflammation (SPMs) and has the potential to moderate chronic inflammation. Alcohol has the potential to affect synthesis of SPMs by altering key enzymes involved in SPM synthesis and may influence ongoing inflammation associated with Type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Aims

(i) To examine the effects of alcohol consumed as red wine on plasma SPM in men and women with Type 2 diabetes in a randomised controlled trial and (ii) compare baseline plasma ...

Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), dermatan sulfate (DS), heparan sulfate (HS), and keratan sulfate (KS), are the primary biomarkers in patients with mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS); however, little is known about other biomarkers. To explore potential biomarkers and their correlation with GAGs, blood samples were collected from 46 MPS II patients, 34 MPS IVA patients, and 5 MPS IVB patients. We evaluated the levels of 8 pro-inflammatory factors (EGF, IL-1β, IL-6, MIP-1α, TNF-α, MMP-1, MMP-2, and MMP-9), collagen type II, and DS, HS (HS0S, HSNS), and KS (mono-sulfated, di-sulfated) in blood. Eight biomarkers measured were significantly elevated in untreated MPS II patients, compared with those ...


Comprehensive Sleep Apnea Screening In Veterans With Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Richard W. Schulz 2019 University of San Diego

Comprehensive Sleep Apnea Screening In Veterans With Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Richard W. Schulz

Doctor of Nursing Practice Final Manuscripts

Objectives: Recent studies have shown a higher prevalence of sleep apnea in veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It is estimated that 69 to 83% of veterans have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) while 80 to 90% are undiagnosed or untreated. Untreated OSA can lead to severe chronic medical conditions as well as impairment of neurocognitive and fear extinction processing potentially decreasing responsiveness to trauma focused therapy. Despite the widespread dissemination of knowledge regarding the negative effects of OSA, many veterans are not screened. The goal of this project is to increase the rate of identifying veterans who are high-risk for ...


Expressive Mindfulness: A Trauma-Sensitive Expressive Arts Therapy Group Method, Meghan Daly 2019 Lesley University

Expressive Mindfulness: A Trauma-Sensitive Expressive Arts Therapy Group Method, Meghan Daly

Expressive Therapies Capstone Theses

Mindfulness and expressive arts therapy are both supportive of directing attention in a manner that promotes integration and function of a person. In this paper, a trauma-sensitive method was created for use in a day treatment setting for adults with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI). This method utilized expressive movement, visual art making with three different materials, and creative writing to encourage mindful, non-judgmental acceptance of the present moment; a sense of relaxation; and an overall increase in quality of life. During development of the method arts-based research informed the choice of materials, music, and structure of the group ...
