Model of Water Sorption and Swelling in Polymer Electrolyte Membranes: Diagnostic Applications. - The journal of physical chemistry. B
This work expands on the poroelectroelastic model of water sorption in polymer electrolyte membranes. It links membrane water sorption and the evolution of the pore size distribution with the microscopic charge density distribution at pore surfaces and the microscopic shear modulus of polymeric pore walls. We evaluate different deformation modes of polymeric pore walls to derive stress-strain relationships that determine the law of swelling. Thereafter, the model is applied to different sets of water sorption data for membranes that were submitted to either hygrothermal aging or chemical degradation. The model-based analysis relates the macroscopic state of swelling to the evolution of the statistical distribution of the pore radius as well as of the microscopic fluid and elastic pressures. Changes in the surface charge density at pore surfaces and elastic pressure of pore walls, induced by degradation, can be rationalized. These insights are useful in view of understanding degradation mechanisms and their structural effects.
Comparison and Evaluation of Multiple Users' Usage of the Exposure and Risk Tool: Stoffenmanager 5.1. - The Annals of occupational hygiene
Stoffenmanager is an exposure and risk assessment tool that has a control banding part, with risk bands as outcome and a quantitative exposure assessment part, with the 90th percentile of the predicted exposure as a default outcome. The main aim of the study was to investigate whether multiple users of Stoffenmanager came to the same result when modelling the same scenarios. Other aims were to investigate the differences between outcomes of the control banding part with the measured risk quota and to evaluate the conservatism of the tool by testing whether the 90th percentiles are above the measured median exposures. We investigated airborne exposures at companies in four different types of industry: wood, printing, metal foundry, and spray painting. Three scenarios were modelled and measured, when possible, at each company. When modelled, 13 users visited each company on the same occasion creating individual assessments. Consensus assessments were also modelled for each scenario by six occupational hygienists. The multiple users' outcomes were often spread over two risk bands in the control banding part, and the differences in the quantitative exposure outcomes for the highest and lowest assessments per scenario varied between a factor 2 and 100. Four parameters were difficult for the users to assess and had a large impact on the outcome: type of task, breathing zone, personal protection, and control measures. Only two scenarios had a higher measured risk quota than predicted by the control banding part, also two scenarios had slightly higher measured median exposure value than modelled consensus in the quantitative exposure assessment part. Hence, the variability between users was large but the model performed well.© The Author 2015. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the British Occupational Hygiene Society.
How reproducible are transcranial magnetic stimulation-induced MEPs in subacute stroke? - Journal of clinical neurophysiology : official publication of the American Electroencephalographic Society
Motor evoked potentials (MEPs) and total motor conduction time (TMCT) induced by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) are used to make assumptions about the prognosis of motor outcome after stroke. Understanding the different sources of variability is fundamental to the concept of reliability. Reliability testing of TMS-MEPs and TMCTs within and between two independent examiners in healthy and stroke subjects is still an unexplored field in the clinical neurophysiology. Assessing the reproducibility of TMS measurements requires studies to investigate the test-retest reliability of TMS-induced MEPs and TMCT. The authors set out to test the reliability of these TMS measurements.Eighteen patients with stroke and 8 healthy volunteers were tested twice within a 1-week period by 2 examiners using TMS to determine MEPs and TMCT for the abductor pollicis brevis muscle of their affected and unaffected hands.The authors found moderate to perfect reliability of TMS-induced MEPs in healthy volunteers, noninfarcted hemispheres (perfect agreement), and infarcted hemispheres (Kappa's = 0.45-0.87). Reliability of TMCT was good to excellent in the volunteers (intraclass correlation coefficients = 0.77-0.97), excellent in the noninfarcted hemispheres (intraclass correlation coefficients = 0.97-1.00), and poor to excellent in the infarcted hemispheres (intraclass correlation coefficients = 0.44-0.90).The reliability of TMS-induced MEPs and TMCT measurements in healthy volunteers and the noninfarcted hemisphere of patients with stroke with an upper paretic limb was good to excellent. In contrast, TMS measurements in the infarcted hemisphere were less consistent. Based on the lower reproducibility of TMCT measurements in the infarcted hemisphere, we recommend to repeat the TMCT measurements to improve the reliability of tests.
First quantification of calcium intake from calcium-dense dairy products in Dutch fracture patients (the Delft cohort study). - Nutrients
Recommendations for daily calcium intake from dairy products are variable and based on local consensus. To investigate whether patients with a recent fracture complied with these recommendations, we quantified the daily dairy calcium intake including milk, milk drinks, pudding, yoghurt, and cheese in a Dutch cohort of fracture patients and compared outcomes with recent data of a healthy U.S. cohort (80% Caucasians). An observational study analyzed dairy calcium intakes of 1526 female and 372 male Dutch fracture patients older than 50. On average, participants reported three dairy servings per day, independently of age, gender or population density. Median calcium intake from dairy was 790 mg/day in females and males. Based on dairy products alone, 11.3% of women and 14.2% of men complied with Dutch recommendations for calcium intake (adults ≤ 70 years: 1100 mg/day and >70 years: 1200 mg/day). After including 450 mg calcium from basic nutrition, compliance raised to 60.5% and 59.1%, respectively, compared to 53.2% in the U.S. cohort. Daily dairy calcium intake is not associated with femoral neck bone mineral density (BMD) T-scores or WHO Fracture Assessment Tool (FRAX) risk scores for major fracture or hip fracture. However, when sub analyzing the male cohort, these associations were weakly negative. The prevalence of maternal hip fracture was a factor for current fracture risks, both in women and men. While daily dairy calcium intake of Dutch fracture patients was well below the recommended dietary intake, it was comparable to intakes in a healthy U.S. cohort. This questions recommendations for adding more additional dairy products to preserve adult skeletal health, particularly when sufficient additional calcium is derived from adequate non-dairy nutrition.
[A Cochrane meta-analysis regarding procalcitonin is in accordance with international goals for the use of antibiotics.] - Ugeskrift for laeger
Antimicrobial resistance towards antibiotics is an increasing issue for the international society. A Cochrane meta-analysis regarding procalcitonin (PCT) as guidance for initiating and discontinuation of antibiotic treatment in respiratory tract infections in a total of 4,221 patients in various care settings has shown promising results for guiding treatment with a PCT cut-off of 0.25 ng/ml, although more research is needed to clarify possible risks to the approach, especially in intensive care units.
Benthic exchange and biogeochemical cycling in permeable sediments. - Annual review of marine science
The sandy sediments that blanket the inner shelf are situated in a zone where nutrient input from land and strong mixing produce maximum primary production and tight coupling between water column and sedimentary processes. The high permeability of the shelf sands renders them susceptible to pressure gradients generated by hydrodynamic and biological forces that modulate spatial and temporal patterns of water circulation through these sediments. The resulting dynamic three-dimensional patterns of particle and solute distribution generate a broad spectrum of biogeochemical reaction zones that facilitate effective decomposition of the pelagic and benthic primary production products. The intricate coupling between the water column and sediment makes it challenging to quantify the production and decomposition processes and the resultant fluxes in permeable shelf sands. Recent technical developments have led to insights into the high biogeochemical and biological activity of these permeable sediments and their role in the global cycles of matter.
In situ coral reef oxygen metabolism: an eddy correlation study. - PloS one
Quantitative studies of coral reefs are challenged by the three-dimensional hard structure of reefs and the high spatial variability and temporal dynamics of their metabolism. We used the non-invasive eddy correlation technique to examine respiration and photosynthesis rates, through O2 fluxes, from reef crests and reef slopes in the Florida Keys, USA. We assessed how the photosynthesis and respiration of different reef habitats is controlled by light and hydrodynamics. Numerous fluxes (over a 0.25 h period) were as high as 4500 mmol O2 m(-2) d(-1), which can only be explained by efficient light utilization by the phototrophic community and the complex canopy structure of the reef, having a many-fold larger surface area than its horizontal projection. Over diel cycles, the reef crest was net autotrophic, whereas on the reef slope oxygen production and respiration were balanced. The autotrophic nature of the shallow reef crests implies that the export of organics is an important source of primary production for the larger area. Net oxygen production on the reef crest was proportional to the light intensity, up to 1750 µmol photons m(-2) s(-1) and decreased thereafter as respiration was stimulated by high current velocities coincident with peak light levels. Nighttime respiration rates were also stimulated by the current velocity, through enhanced ventilation of the porous framework of the reef. Respiration rates were the highest directly after sunset, and then decreased during the night suggesting that highly labile photosynthates produced during the day fueled early-night respiration. The reef framework was also important to the acquisition of nutrients as the ambient nitrogen stock in the water had sufficient capacity to support these high production rates across the entire reef width. These direct measurements of complex reefs systems yielded high metabolic rates and dynamics that can only be determined through in situ, high temporal resolution measurements.
A job-exposure matrix for occupational noise: development and validation. - The Annals of occupational hygiene
To develop a job-exposure matrix (JEM) for occupational noise in Sweden and to estimate its validity.The JEM, developed by a group of experienced occupational hygienists, contains 321 job families with information regarding occupational noise from 1970 to 2004. The occupational noise information derives from measurements collected from different sources. The time period label has a 5-year scale starting in 1970. The estimated average 8h (TWA) noise level in decibel [dB(A)] for every 5-year period was coded either as <75 dB(A), 75-84 dB(A), or ≥85 dB(A) and the risk of peak level exposure assessed. The validity of the JEM is tested, using Svensson's non-parametric methods based on classification consensus, reached by a second group of occupational hygienists.Validation results show ~ 80% agreement and no systematic differences, in classification, between the two different groups of occupational hygienists, classifying the occupational noise exposure. However, classification of peak level exposure did show a systematic difference in relative position. The results will give more power to the JEM that it gives a good general estimate for the occupational noise levels in Sweden for different job families during 1970-2004. We, thus, intend to use it in further studies and also make it available to collaborators.
[A procalcitonin-guided algorithm for pneumonia may reduce antibiotic use and treatment duration]. - Ugeskrift for laeger
Reduction of antimicrobial resistance in microorganisms is imperative. Pneumonia is important in this matter because of its high incidence, subjective diagnostic criteria, and variations in aetiology. Research has focused on the use of a procalcitonin-guided algorithm for antimicrobial stewardship with promising reductions in antibiotic use and treatment duration, but more research is needed in order to draw a final conclusion. Lack of objective diagnostic criteria, methodological challenges in research, a future focus on primary care, and the need for a cost-benefit analysis should be considered.
Contralateral hip fractures and other osteoporosis-related fractures in hip fracture patients: incidence and risk factors. An observational cohort study of 1,229 patients. - Archives of orthopaedic and trauma surgery
To report risk factors, 1-year and overall risk for a contralateral hip and other osteoporosis-related fractures in a hip fracture population.An observational study on 1,229 consecutive patients of 50 years and older, who sustained a hip fracture between January 2005 and June 2009. Fractures were scored retrospectively for 2005-2008 and prospectively for 2008-2009. Rates of a contralateral hip and other osteoporosis-related fractures were compared between patients with and without a history of a fracture. Previous fractures, gender, age and ASA classification were analysed as possible risk factors.The absolute risk for a contralateral hip fracture was 13.8 %, for one or more osteoporosis-related fracture(s) 28.6 %. First-, second- and third-year risk for a second hip fracture was 2, 1 and 0 %. Median (IQR) interval between both hip fractures was 18.5 (26.6) months. One-year incidence of other fractures was 6 %. Only age was a risk factor for a contralateral hip fracture, hazard ratio (HR) 1.02 (1.006-1.042, p = 0.008). Patients with a history of a fracture (33.1 %) did not have a higher incidence of fractures during follow-up (16.7 %) than patients without fractures in their history (14 %). HR for a contralateral hip fracture for the fracture versus the non-fracture group was 1.29 (0.75-2.23, p = 0.360).The absolute risk of a contralateral hip fracture after a hip fracture is 13.8 %, the 1-year risk was 2 %, with a short interval between the 2 hip fractures. Age was a risk factor for sustaining a contralateral hip fracture; a fracture in history was not.
